  1. There is no good reason to provide support for legacy/"alternative" systems like that. The audience is too niche to be worth maintaining the pages for said info. Anyways, the fan sites devoted to their respective systems will be far more detailed than we could be.
  2. I wouldn't consider crowdsourcing sites to be stores, regardless of what they offer. Purchasing the game is only during a limited timespan, as opposed to Early Access where it can be bought at anytime. There's also the more fundamental issue where many of these games may never leave the site and in rare cases, the game ends up being a scam. Heh.
  3. It's more about the fact you cannot assume everyone can just google things not found in the article. The wiki is a one-stop shop for the game and resorting to google means that we have failed at our jobs. Anyways, 3-4 extra lines is hardly clutter.
  4. I always found that the "General information" section is for broad info about a game. Restricting things to just forum posts and Steam links will make things quite dull. The entire article doesn't have to be 100% lean content-wise.
  5. UPDATE: The guide has been finished and is now integrated into the site! This thread is now for suggestions/issues relating to the guide. Since I started actively contributing to the wiki almost 2 years ago, a major issue I found (along with many others) is the lack of proper documentation. New contributors are constantly making basic mistakes that can be easily prevented and consistency is very difficult to maintain. For the longest time, the best the wiki can offer was the sample article (decent enough, but does not cover all the bases) and the Style Policy page (an absolute joke honestly). For the past 5 months, I have worked towards fixing this problem once and for all. The biggest project I have ever taken on, the editing guide is a complete and thorough look at every editing aspect on the wiki. What the guide will handle: General formatting styles Visual screenshot guidelines How to give proper instructions A complete breakdown of a game articleEvery table, row, and tag is covered, with examples, section-specific guidelines, and field breakdowns. Techniques on finding table fields are also provided. It should be noted that the guide is not interned to replace the sample article. Rather, it complements it, giving better context to the various elements of an article. It IS intended to replace the Style Policy however. It has already been incorporated into the guide and will be deleted once the guide is complete. That leads me into the last thing to mention: The guide is currently not complete. I have almost exhausted all my skills writing up the bulk of what's available, and I need the community to help me finish it up. What needs to be done: Nothing at the momentPlease help out in whatever way you can.
  6. I'm in the same boat as Nicereddy (although it is much colder where I'm at). Does sound like it will be a blast though!
