  1. Currently the release date sorting is all kinds of screwed up because of the lack of information in certain cases. I went looking for a solution as apparently the default Wiki table sorting for dates does not consider year before month, etc. unless the date is in a specific format: YYYY-MM-DD. This Template seems to solve the issue although it doesn't seem to be implemented. (I'm not new to Wiki editing but what I have done hasn't been much more than page editing.) I assume the template would have to be reproduced or forked or something. Then in the See Also section I came across THIS which would suit the Crowdfunding table style and THIS which someone may want to implement for the entire wiki's release dates. Like I said, I have no idea how to go about moving these templates to be used so if anyone can offer any help/guidance, please do so.
  2. Alright, I've finally submitted the first iteration of the page: http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Crowdfunding . I've sent Kickstarter an email to obtain explicit permission. Currently the file is uploaded and used once on the page as I've described in the email so they can see how it would appear once the page is populated. It's pretty bare bones at the moment and takes quite a bit of time to add content. Current Format With Descriptors: |-------------------------------------------------------------- | [[File]] or [[File] | Funding, Goal Reached, Successful, Alpha, Beta, Released | {{OS|Windows}} {{OS|Mac}} {{OS|Linux}} | [[]] | [ ] | Q4 2014 | RPG | April 5, 2013 | $20 | 21,000 | $900,000 | $2,959,160 | [http] Template: |-------------------------------------------------------------- | | | | | | | | | | | | | Indiegogo requires you to calculate the backers yourself (ugh), but most of the information can be found on the page or with a few Google Searches. Kickstarter is easier to transfer because there's more information but things like Genre/Platforms are still sometimes ambiguous. It doesn't have many there yet because I'm honestly burnt out. Spent 6 or so hours trying to get this right so I'll start working on populating it with more tomorrow. Anyone can feel free to chip in! :P I'd like to at least keep the format for things like the Status so they're easily sortable.
  3. This post was recently made on Reddit and I posted this comment for context: I've started to create the page for crowdfunded games but I'd like to use Icons in the table to denote whether the funding is taking place on Kickstarter, IndieGogo, or any other site. Do I need a template to be able to use and Icon in the format {{ID|KS}} for example? I've made Icons with their Press Icons: (I used that website because imgur compresses to JPG.) Kickstarter has some weird caveats on their style page: http://www.kickstarter.com/help/style_guide so for now I'll refrain from using it until I can contact them.
