  1. I have no idea what you could possibly be referring to.
  2. What version of Waterfox are you on? If I remember correctly, Waterfox is based off an older version of Firefox, and hasn't necessarily moved at the same speed as Firefox with implementing new web features. I may be wrong about that, though.
  3. 60FPS on the menu is a pretty poor metric. Plenty of games run at super high FPS on menu screens, but lag in-game.
  4. I've been really busy with college, haven't been able to work on the wiki much. Sorry guys. I'll try working with Soeb over the weekend to get the skin open source'd on GitHub so others can contribute fixes if they're so inclined. Otherwise, it may be a bit before things get fixed. I realize these are relatively simple fixes, but my time has been almost entirely eaten up by other commitments lately. Again, apologies.
  5. Well... that's interesting. I'm not experienced with Windows, so I'll leave this up to someone else. Just to make sure, have you: Tried turning your computer off and on again? Tried updating to the Steam Client Beta/moving to Stable (depending on which you're on right now)? Tried updating the drivers for your graphics card? Otherwise, I'd post on the Steam Big Picture Bug Reports forum.
  6. Thank you for taking the time to give us this feedback. When you've edited the wiki for so long, you stop noticing all these small issues, good to have a new pair of eyes on it :)
  7. Apologies for taking so long to get around to this, been busy with college stuff. Fixboxes have better vertical spacing between lines now. The Recent Changes page has much better vertical spacing now. Soeb fixed the DRM sidebar. I think I've fixed some of the font weight issues people were having, not able to test without a Windows computer, unfortunately. I haven't fixed the infobox yet because that's a more complex issue than the others, I'll try and get around to it soon.
  8. File names/routes/code are monospaced to differentiate from other text and to ensure maximum possible readability. Open Sans isn't monospaced and therefore doesn't fit this criteria.
  9. ThatOneReaper requested they be changed back to blue during the skin's development, and I didn't feel too strongly about the white background being inherently better. As this is entirely a matter of preference, I'd like to see if one is preferred over the other by the community. Feel free to chime in with your preferences, everyone.
  10. I've taken note of these three in the issue tracker, will see about fixing them tomorrow when I have more time.
  11. Thank you for having an open mind :) I'll miss the edits on the front page as well, I'm kind of thinking we should bring them back, or at least make a link to them more prominent.
  12. I've done this before with another site, it's incredibly difficult to maintain, especially if you don't have full control over the site's CSS (which we don't, because of MediaWiki). So unfortunately, this isn't planned.
  13. I'm going to have to agree with Ratchet with regards to the line height issue on Recent Changes, with more padding it's much more readable IMO. I'll add that to the bug tracker, bug me about it if it isn't changed by the end of the weekend. With regards to the other comments, I'm more than open to criticism, and I don't mean to imply that my work is "infallible", but certainly there are more productive ways of giving feedback than telling us "it doesn't look very finished yet"? Soeb and I have developed this entirely in our free time over the last seven months, and it is discouraging to se
  14. It was tested in Firefox on Mac and Firefox on Linux as well. The font rendering problems are caused by Windows' font rendering, and can't be fixed without messing up the text for OS X/Linux users.
  15. As always, you can support our work and help pay for the site's hosting costs by becoming a patron on Patreon. It'd be greatly appreciated! What's new A lot, to the say the least! Faster load times, decreased content payload The home page, for example, has gone from 92 requests, more than 1000 KB of content, and a load time of 8.97 seconds all the way down to 26 requests, 686 KB of content, and a 2.33 second load time. A huge performance gain! Game article pages have also seen significant improvement. Our article on Half-Life 2 has gone from 76 requests, 443 KB of content, and
  16. After more than six months in development, we’re very happy to announce that our new PCGamingWiki skin is ready for release! The skin has been developed primarily by our admins Nicereddy and Soeb, who handled the front-end design/development and back-end development (server, MediaWiki upgrades, etc.) respectively.As always, you can support our work and help pay for the site's hosting costs by becoming a patron on Patreon.

  17. Mobile header with search/sidebar is now available :D Very very close to a beta release!
  18. Pretty much this. We try to remain neutral in most cases.
  19. I disagree with it not being possible for the Steam source to be released. If they have some proprietary third-party software embedded inside, that I can understand, but Valve has done quite a bit of open source work in the last few years, I don't think Steam is necessarily an exception. The value of Steam isn't really in its client, that thing barely works half the time (on OS X, at least), it's in the selection of games, sales, friends already on the service, and features which can't easily be duplicated, e.g. Steam Workshop. Open sourcing it shouldn't really hurt their bottom line.
  20. I'm unsure how to feel about this. The copyright of abandonware titles isn't technically owned by anyone, as the company who made the game has been dissolved, shut down, etc. So we can't be sued by anyone, technically. That said, it's still not legal to cover, and is something we should be wary of condoning for caution's sake. Also, I am not a lawyer.
