Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Official Opening of EEWiki

Some of you may have noticed the new Wiki link in the navbar. In case you couldn't figure out why, it's there because we have a wiki now.

Anyway, if anyone can help out with adding new content or uploading missing images, we'd really appreciate it. Right now we have around 32 pages, which is not bad at all for having been created just 4 days ago.

If you have any suggestions for the new wiki, please direct yourself to Forum Discussion.

If you want to help out but aren't sure how, I'm going to keep an up-to-date list of things that need to be done here.

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

Note to people making new pages: Please write the titles in sentence case, regardless of how the original page was written. Thank you.

This is the standardization for Wikipedia. Since we are using MediaWiki and our wiki's style is based of Wikipedia, we should copy theirs.

Thinking about it more, it depends on what it is. Certain things, such as packages, or smileys, are capitalized. This does not mean every article should have title case, because some articles (such as "Common puzzles") have names with generic words. They should be capitalised as if used at the beginning of a sentence. Some articles are capitalized incorrectly. I am currently writing a Manual of Style, so that everything will be cleared up.

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

Page title are titles, aren't they? It'd make sense for titles to use title case 100% of the time instead of conditionally like what Wikipedia does. That's what people would expect and if we don't do what people expect then we're going to be spending half our time changing title case on new articles to sentence case. Wikipedia has an army of rabid strictnubs to correct and enforce every standard imaginable, which is great for them but this is a tiny wiki for a tiny game. I think we can afford to relax, nobody's expecting us to be a full Wikipedia clone for EE.

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

The To-Do page has been updated to include Stubs and Outdated pages, which are both easy ways to get into helping out on the wiki.

Not really. Wiki article "titles" are the subject they contain. That would be like capitalizing every word entry in a dictionary because they are the "title" of the entry. This would, of course, not be true for the case with pages for levels and crews. But to separate the names of things like blocks and smileys from other things (and because Capital Letters Are Magic), capitalizing certain in-game things is necessary.

It'd make sense for titles to use title case 100% of the time instead of conditionally like what Wikipedia does.

Maybe We Should Capitalize Every Word In The Wiki So People Will Not Get Confused As To How To Type It.

That's what people would expect and if we don't do what people expect then we're going to be spending half our time changing title case on new articles to sentence case.

I would be willing to do that.

Wikipedia has an army of rabid strictnubs to correct and enforce every standard imaginable, which is great for them but this is a tiny wiki for a tiny game.

Conveniently for the strict wiki topic of one flash game, we also get the advantage of having loads of less pages than Wikipedia.

That's a sentence. People expect sentence case in sentences. Article titles are titles. People expect title case in titles.

I would be willing to do that.

And eventually you'd burn yourself out with the endless trickling stream of work and then we'd be left with a combination of sentence case and title case.

What I'm trying to say here is, pick your battles. This isn't one you want to fight. Relax, take a load off, and let things be easy.

Still, this isn't Wikipedia. We can afford to relax and change a thing or two to make things easier on ourselves. We don't have to adhere to every single tiny insignificant standard that Wikipedia follows, especially when that standard is not immediately obvious and will be ignored by every person who creates a new page. We're EEWiki. Not Wikipedia.

*examines recent changes*

So... He got rid of spaces and .s on people's names? Doesn't seem like a huge deal, and that kind if is their name, at least in-game, except for the graphics guy.

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

The graphics guy's name didn't have a '.' In it either, I believe. I was just correcting them. First rule of wiki is to be bold and make changes

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

EDIT: Seriously, Villius? You undid all of my changes? I or somebody else is just going to change them back when I/they get online. Please verify the information is correct before putting them on the wiki. MrShoe was never called "Mr. Shoe" as those are invalid characters of a username.
