  1. I understand. Well, I hope your team sides in favour of being a "one stop shop" repo for all gaming info. The technical should maintain priority imo but at the same time servicing the greater gaming community as a hub to other community resources that perhaps might not fit within PCGM's original scope is quite valuable and seems relevant to me as an end user of your site. I'll keep an eye on your team's developments! Thanks again!
  2. I don't know what the current issues are that you're referring to. You're far more knowledgeable about the going ons of your wiki than I am. All I can share with you is my own experience with pcwikigaming.com as well as my own experience as an administrator of numerous communities. Having a dedicated section for known and established communities, especially for older games where the publishers or studios are now defunct, is incredibly useful for people looking to connect with others that are passionate about those specific games. Burying or removing community links altogether does a disservice to the end user who is seeking to connect as well as to what I presume is the primary goal of the wiki, to provide the best and most relevant information about a game to the end user. Whatever your team decides, is up to you. That is my 2 cents. Thanks again for taking the time to consider my input.
  3. Proposal: Add Communities Section Background: This was originally proposed specifically for the Star Wars Episode 1 Racer wiki but I think this is also relevant across all game communities. In some instances, when newcomers arrive on a wiki page, it is valuable to be able to connect with members of that gaming community. In my specific case, it was very useful to have the SWE1R discord (unofficial) linked in the General Information section. As a modder, it allowed me to connect with other community members and get a project off the ground. From what I understand after having a conversation with staff in the PCGamingWiki Disord server, having this link posted under General Information goes against the wiki policy. Therefore I propose that policy is edited to include a communities section. Proposal: Add Communities Section Adding a "Communities" section to the wiki right below General Information would allow people like myself who are looking to connect and collaborate with other community members, to easily do so. The SWE1R community, like so many communities surrounding older games, is very small and having visibility for various communities to connect with newcomers is so important. It means that people such as myself can find those communities in the first place! For example, had the policy been enforced and this discord link not have been posted under the General Information section, I wouldn't have been able to even begin my mods for the game. Connecting with other people was essential to make the SWE1R HD Upgrade Pack a reality. Making Community Links visible and easily accessible at the top of the wiki is vital to the future growth of many small communities. I urge your team to take this into consideration. Thank you, - J King
