    Lol yeah no worries I already made note of that a couple of posts ago saying "You can submit write ups, pictures, gifs, and videos. It's all helpful for us, even if its half assed. I really hope more and more people jump on this, it's a really easy system. People like Paralogia can clean it all up after and make super bad ass sections on the wiki after."

    If you mean gifs should replace detailed explanations though I disagree. I think both of them should go hand in hand. However I would be happy to see people that only submit videos and gifs to the group for us to use. We currently have a small amount, all I can manage is picture gifs which look childish lol.

    The reason I asked if you were referring to the group page or wiki was because the group page is not the final draft. The group is just a place where anyone can submit whatever they think might help. The wiki on the other hand is completely unfinished.
     
  2. Oh then I meant the group page as gifs alone would be stupid

    That's not what I meant, I was implying long descriptive text and gifs should hand in hand. As opposed to little write ups and gifs, I figured that was understood because that's what you were suggesting in the first place. Sorry if I was to vague about it, you know I love you. :heart:
     
  4. Yeah that's what I meant. Use the gifs in conjunction with the text.

    It's quite easy to find the chat commands actually. If you want to know the command for the Lantern, for example, you go to its folder in Entities, and find the CFG file. Look around it till you find a variable (not sure if it is one, correct me if I'm wrong ) called $name. It should say the name of the blob there, and if you want to spawn it, just write that name in the chat with ! in front of it.

    *nix (Linux, OSX) users :
    Code:
    cd /your/kag/folder/
    grep -r '\$name' | cut -d '=' -f 2 | sort | uniq
    This should print a list of all available blobs (to spawn with !blob)
    You probably can do that with cygwin as well

    Edit : There we go (probably outdated)
    Edit 2 : It also includes blobs from official mods (shiprekt, m16..)

    Huh. This thread looked good; but no action in a while--are you guys just working busily behind the scenes, or has the initiative gone the way of all flesh?

    Yea, it's a bit embarrassing to say, but I sorta lost motivation to do write-ups, after writing all the stuff here and in the group. I was hoping there would be a few more people who would help in the task of actually transferring information to the wiki, instead of just posting their tips in the group (not that those weren't helpful).

    Also, I think Jiggy, who was a driving force in this movement, has had other things to do.

    On a more personal note, I wasn't sure at the time whether I would be going back to college/university, so my decisions were all very tentative. In the end, I did decide to go back. This means that I won't have much opportunity/mental energy to work on this.

    At least people were willing to contribute by posting on the group, so the information is still there for the future.

    That's more than fair enough; Imma doing a few specialist history units this session and the time-suck is palpable. And as you say, the material is all there; so it can be added when'if there's free time +headspace to do so. ::): Also, we uni students should totally skype or mumble a toast to the end of the year's studies sometime after exams are over. Maybe on Thanksgiving? ^_^

    I think we both (@ParaLogia) thought we'd be spending less time creating pages on the wiki and instead be spending more time editing and adding finishing touches to what people had wrote. (*pleasant thoughts*)

    While the info that was provided on the "Wiki Forum" was helpful, the writing style (imo) didn't really match that of the former wiki content too well. This was most likely our fault as no example was posted so what we got there instead were well written guides rather than just a basic overview of an object. This, and the lack of understanding that formatting a wiki page takes time and can't be done by a few "lacking motivational" people is what made this revival and the others before it, halt.

    ~Busy with classes, so this isn't exactly a high priority

    Ton of wiki editing that has been done over the past week or so. Could still use a Bucket and Sponge writeup though. I think ill hit up arrows tommorow(water, bomb, fire all needs threads and tips). Here's hoping all the work done up until this point will convince some of you guys to help. Thanks to @Vamist for all the sprites while i was a pleb at the wiki and para and kaz for the help :)

    I'm happy to help, thinking of making it easier to navigate etc.Although technically don't have access to be able to do that...

    Also what's that random page for? Probably needs a title and name...

    And a few new blocks that may need to be added are the mechanics.

    I'll do the classes either today or the next few days, mainly they just need pics etc. I can make a head one over the next few weeks.

    That is joke, right?

    Kaz uploaded the templates for all the mechanism blocks already, the pages themselves still need to be made.

    I just added the navigation at the bottom of the mech thread for consistency and im pretty sure i fixed all the reciever errors.
    I think all the actual blocks are good(mechs def need threads tho), but the actual issue, imo, is all the blank arrow pages, i think burger is missing, and afew other important ingame items.

    Check the wanted pages list for more ideas.

    Could it be that, by chance, you were taken to the Random page?
