SBR Wiki Stuff
« on: April 12, 2015, 03:10:21 PM »
Since the Redshirts are about to be thrown unto the breach, I went ahead and set up a nice little section for SBR on the wiki. I would be very grateful if we had some redshirts go in and start adding stuff, even if it will change eventually. I'm hoping that we can reverse the current trend of the wiki being outdated and worthless, and instead make it into a glorious area filled with knowledge. Or just not a horribly outdated place :)

If anyone else wants to go ahead and add what information has been released, they are more than welcome to.

The content is far more important than the style, so don't fret too much about it looking bad! Other people can always go in and make it look pretty :)

Went ahead and added a description. I'll do more work on it when there's more material to work with.

EDIT: Actually, this is sort of a wiki-wide gripe, but would it be possible to make the main pages "GameName" rather than "GameName:GameName"?

Yea, Once I get back to my computer I'll change that. Unless another administrator beats me to that :)

Yeah, on that note, half of the TLF races stand alone, and the other half are on "TLF:RaceName". Since just about everyone is going to be in SBR, do we want to separate the Acutians in SBR and TLF, or have single pages unconnected to a gamespace?

There should be a page for TLF:Acutians and SBR:Acutians. Otherwise it would be difficult to determine if the information is relevant to TLF or SBR. If we want a page for general info, I can make a lore namespace where we can put stuff like that.

I think that would be good.  A lot of the description is going to be identical across both games, while mechanical details will be specific. Even if the Acutian industries are identical in both games they're going to work differently.

SBR is not listed on the left-hand navigation bar, though it is in the main 'our games' page. Regular users - or at least I - cannot update the nav bar. If this wasn't intentional (e.g. waiting until launch or at least more substance), please update!

I'll try to add random bits in as I play through it.  I've alot of free time, so that might help.

....provided I remember.  I keep forgetting about the Bionic Dues section too, ugh.

It is intentional that regular users can't edit it (Only administrators) because otherwise some random guy could come along and ruin the entire layout. And it can be hard to revert style changes. It was not intentional to not link it though! I've linked it there now.

Lore namespace? :o

Created and ready for stuff to be put in there!

Someone might have done that already, it's neither in alphabetical order nor release order! (note: this is a joke)

Anyway, if I'm understanding this right, we need SBR: pages for buildings, social progress, technology, and terrain types. We can split the content into subpages as necessary, but that's the overview.

That sounds about right! Make sure you create the pages in the correct namespace, since I noticed you didn't do that for the races. Not a big deal or anything, since anyone can move the pages and I can always run a bot if needed.

Actually, the races page was already there, I just found it. I did mess up the Zenith page I was working on, I'll move it to Lore:Zenith. Should I send you a list of pages up for deletion later?

Oh huh. Make sure that you don't put any game specific stuff in lore though. Like build speed and stuff can be omitted. Putting {{Speed}} at the top of the page would probably be a lot easier and keep it a transparent process. :)
