Calling for Wiki Help

Postby Tiamat » Wed May 28, 2014 3:30 pm

As some of you may know, our wiki is woefully empty. I need your help to fill it up. I'm trying to get a Getting Started page going for our newcomers. What I primarily need help with for now:

  • Overview of Mechanics in the RPI+ Engine (combat, movement, etc.)

If you want to help on this, indicate your interest here. Feel free to also ask me via PM or AIM me at TiamatARPI for any questions. I also welcome any suggestions for the wiki. If you've finished a write-up, feel free to email me it at tiamat@middle-earth.us. I will give you full credit for the write-up. I may update this in the future for more projects that might come up.

I'll help. I've got one thing in the works already and I can write up another one from those three below.

A Guide to Role-Play Commands in the RPI+ Engine
Would you be referring to communication specific commands?
Like think, say, shout, emote, targeted emote, etc?
If so I can put that together no problem.

The wiki is looking amazing!

Thanks WG. We now have two more guides in our wiki! Talking Tolkien and An Introduction to Role-Playing Commands. :)

You're welcome! Happy to help!

I'd assist on the Skills guide too, but I'm wondering if you would like me to leave some things off it for now?

Would you just want it to encompass the skills which are posted in the character generator since some are not implemented?

Please incorporate everything available in the character generator for now if you want to tackle this. There are definitely some skills not released yet (or are waiting for more features in OPEN).

Thank you again. <3333

There are some skills which I cannot bring up in the guest lounge and I presume this is because they were added or altered.

Like woodcraft goes on to explain it contributes to timberwright and that This skill's primary attributes are INTELLIGENCE and DEXTERITY.

Is it safe to assume that the information obtainable through the guest lounge help files is inaccurate to a degree? Or should I use the details I get from the help files, and just flesh out a bare bones explanation for any skills that don't seem to have one. Like Fishing for some reason I cannot locate.

Actually, I'd say all the helpfiles are up to date. There's been a lot of changes to how stats weigh for skills. If the skill doesn't have one, feel free to flesh it out. I'm sure we'll be updating it as we go, as we're in ALPHA.

Every time I look at the wiki, there's something new and awesome there. Kudos to Tiamat and her minions!

I am very happy to see the wiki taking shape! It will be so much easier to find information in a well-organized wiki than in the posts scattered through the Forums. Thanks to Tiamat, Bombur, WildGiller, and anyone else who have been contributing to this.

You give me more credit than I'm due!

If it wasn't for Tiamats mad formatting skills, everyone would think me to be utterly wiki-handicapped :lol:
