WiredForWar Wiki Re-Opened
« on: April 15, 2008, 12:05:20 am »
The WiredForWar.org Wiki Has Re-Opened!


And this time, there are a couple improvements.

  • The latest version of Mediawiki is now being utilized.
  • Users can now use their forum accounts to log in and edit!

So get in there and start publishing some good Machines content!
Here's some stuff that would be useful in there...


  • Modding documentation
  • Modding tutorials
  • Machines Storyline
  • Machines documentation/manual
  • Machines strategy
  • Machines 2 Development Status
  • Machines 2 Development History
  • Machines 2 Development Progress/Examples
  • Getting Machines to Work Under XP
  • Downloading/Working the Machines Client
  • Obtaining the Machines Discs
  • History of the Machines Community/WiredForWar

GO!

Please do not blame us for not working on your page, Sloik. We have some real life that has higher priority than creating a wiki for a game that only few people know. We just do not have the eager ambition and time for it.

I mean, it is definetely a lot of work that you require from us. What is it exactly that makes you sure that we are motivated in writing a wikipage for you? And indeed, are you sure that our work will be good enough for a page of that kind? Most of us are under 18, many do not have English as their native language.

It is always hard to make a beginning, but why should we even do one? For example, as you might have noticed, I was producing several mods for Machines. But no one(except of X-Lord and Judas) posted comments on my further mods and nearly no one downloaded them. And YOU seemed to have ignored me after my first mod anyway(Look here and here)I felt very frustrated about that and stopped working, focussing my real life.

Maybe you should start the wiki by collecting several forum posts by yourself and presenting them in a formal way in your wiki, as you seem to have interest in its success. I mean, somehow we feel like little pupils who have said all they know about a topic in lesson and are now supposed to do the same as a homework. In this case, you are the teacher who hands out an empty sheet of paper and says: 'Here, write something...'.

Feel free to produce a wikipage if you want to, but do not force us to work for you for no money. If a wikipage is your dream, well, try to fulfill it, but do not make us think that it is obligatory for us to participate.

Looking for downloads all around Machines? Try the download section and report any suggestions for it to me.

I'm not forcing anybody to do anything... just thought somebody might show some interest, as this has been the case in the past.

I understand you have a life, but I'm sure that any kind of contribution would be acceptable (except for, of course, wiki-vandalism).

I am by no means ignoring you. I check the latest posts at least three times I week, sometimes I just don't find the time to reply. I'd be happy to post/host your mods somewhere if you'd be so kind as to request it.

Sorry for creating a wiki for you guys... :-/

You do not have to apologize, just do not make us feel we would be lazy. Maybe we will contribute our part in some time, but we will not be more efficient if you call us to hurry.

Why didn't you tell us ? It's cool :smilydude: My English is very bad, so I won't write there anything, but You can keep the good work 8-)

You could include there these 2 points:
# Machines documentation/manual
# Machines strategy

:-)

Created a page with some details about the units. Needs a bit of work, though. :P

WiredForWar Wiki - Units Page

EDITBUMP: Added another unit.

That was way off my situation. I just never seem to be able to make good edits that aren't just one word.
