Underrail wiki?
« on: January 25, 2013, 01:45:37 AM »
UPDATE:

Wiki is up currently at: www.underrail.com/wiki
You can make anonymous edits to existing pages (there are stubs for most pages thanks to Epeli).
Or you can contact me or Epeli to create you an account if you want to add new pages.

ORIGINAL POST:

By this point there's plenty of stuff in the game, and I often get asked stuff like:
  • do you have list of armors/weapons/etc that are in the game
  • where can I buy this or that
  • how is damage for this or that calculated
  • how do I use this item

So what do you guys think about starting a wiki? I could host it here on the site, maybe customize it a bit to match the site theme and all that. However I wouldn't have that much time to populate it, so I would need help from you guys. I would of course chime in where necessary to clear stuff up.

So basically I have two questions:

Would you like to have an Underrail wiki?

Would you contribute to it and how much?

Cheers.

A wiki would be awesome, and I would love to contribute with as much as possible.

Yeah, making it would be very nice, otherwise the forums really will get swarmed with the same questions... because people can't bother to use 'search' function.

I'll search for the free wiki sites after I'll come back home, but I don't know how much I can write there alone... so I'll be counting on you, guys! Of course if somebody else already has an idea where and how create it then please let me know, just to not be redundant :).

Okay, I'll doublepost to alert people who already saw this thread. I've found sites like http://www.wikispaces.com/ or http://www.wiki-site.com/index.php/Wiki_Creation_-_Create_A_Wiki_For_Free%21 so it's not really an issue. The question is - will we have dedicated team to fill it in? Because as I'm of now the amount of time that can be consumed by updating is really low (I've got few projects here and there).

So I guess WolveNZ and nackidno both are volunteering to fill the blanks? :P. Or are there more people who would like to contribute?

Styg said he would host it, no?

It is a wiki, people can fill it all they want, but it needs a few dedicated people to keep it clean and check the legitimacy of the information added.

Welp, yeah it seems like I somehow misread it... well anyway my point stands - I'll be happy to contribute, but the amount of free time I have really isn't staggering :).

Anyway Underrail Wiki FTW!

Ok, guys. I'll look into setting up the wiki and doing the basic layout.

I'll keep you posted.

Quick update. I've installed the wiki and started figuring out how to customize it (looks, templates, etc).

Unless I find someone I can delegate this work to, it'll take some time before it's ready for editing, but it's coming.

Well, instead of a Wiki, how about a simple thread for now that has a list of posts, each post contains a different topic, like one does weapons and armor, one does craft recipes, one does location of NPC's, etc.

I'm +1 for a wiki. But not at the cost of development timing... :)

Game first, wiki later imo

That's not a bad idea, but what I'll probably do instead is focus on those articles of wiki first that don't require much template work. Such as explaining the basic concepts and game mechanics details.
