Wiki discussion
« on: October 22, 2011, 08:32:44 AM »
I'd like a forum for Wiki discussion.

I'd also like some guidelines for Wiki articles. It's probably not OK to post game stats.... or is it? So I'd be posting fluff AND/OR I'd be posting tactics suggestions to the extent I'm able. Should I be posting info on the models themselves, or would that be a subsection of the wiki? Should it be in-universe? I'm honestly a bit lost.

So, questions:

Is it OK to post the descriptions of weapons/soldiers given in the game text, or should I paraphrase? Should I work on an "in universe" perspective, and would the switch to game analysis be jarring? Should I post stats in whole or in part?

I'll come back to this with some examples tomorrow, if I get time.

I'd be interested in the answers to these, too. As much as possible I've been re-stating text, as opposed to directly copying it.
Best Regards,

Dear Admin; please move this thread there and leave a link for me to follow. I am dense and can't find it.

http://los.turtleshellprod.co m/index.php?board=8.0

darned permissions.... apparently it was not visible to regular members.
There is also a "discuss this wiki entry" link on each page, which will link in the wiki, but also exist in that board.

I was wondering! I was starting to think I was going crazy as I was looking for it...
