    This is a thread to discuss additions you think should be added to the wiki, what you have edited on the wiki, and for questions about the wiki.

    Or anything else that has to do with the GO Wiki.

    Good idea, Quinn:). We needed a thread after the contest closed.

    Yup, thanks! :D

    I'll be updating the Space Station 13 page soon, both major servers got some updates.

    You know Quinn, once you finish your Dwarf Fortress guide, you should copy everything over to the Wiki, it seems a more appropiate place for it.

    And it would be cool if the wiki had a comments page (or TALK PAGE as Wikipedia calls them).

    TALK: Page Name

    For every single one? *faints*

    I meant something that would automatically create a comment page each time an article was created (and delete it if said article, for some reason or another, had to be deleted).

    Hmmm?
    All Wikipedia does is give you a link to create a talk page at the top. It doesn't actually make one for every page, that would mean keeping twice as much data as it needs too.

    Basically it's a link to create a page with
    Talk: Page Name
    as its title.

    Oh yeah, good point. I keep forgetting that. I was just thinking that your guide needed a good, permanent, easily findable place, and the Wiki seemed ideal at the time (I don't think things through sometimes).

    And about the talk page, I think I have an idea for one now.

    Maybe we should have another Wiki contest after the Review Helper one:).

    It'd be cool to have a thing over by your join date, post count, etc. that says "recently edited" or something to show what you recently changed in the wiki.
