    So what i'm noticing is that Classic and Beta information has been kind of mixed together. Do you guys plan on separating it out? I've been looking to help out the Kag community in some way maybe I could help that way? I only know basic wiki tools so I would need some training first.

    It didn't get mixed up. New wiki was just an exact copy of the old one which you can find now here: https://doc.kag2d.com/wiki/Main_Page
    That doc wiki is meant for the old classic version. The new wiki should be altered to fit the new Beta version. It was done like that to have the base to start off.
    Every helping hand is welcome. (:

    Oh wow. Then there is a lot of things to be done. Like, https://wiki.kag2d.com/wiki/Objects still has the outpost from alpha on it still lol.

    Im typically in school most of the day, but like today, 3/4ths of the day is spent on a computer doing nothing but playing games. Also, I have already applied to Penn. State for early admission with .8 over their avg. gpa and 500 points higher than their avg SAT score, so I'm really going to be slaking off a lot more as soon as I am accepted.

    I'll take some time today to learn the wiki language and hopefully I can put a dent into the large amount of things that needs to be updated.

    Any small chance there is a place where I can find all the sprites for the game and an updated list of every single object in-game? It is really going to be a pain trying to find everything.

    Edit: My god. Looking through the pages, the entire wiki needs a huge overhaul. This is insane! My OCD is kicking in. Must. Fix. EVERYTHING! Give me 2 weeks after learning the language and it will be all done.

    Any chance you could create a thread on the forums so that I can start compiling images, prices, etc?

    Feel free to create any thread you want on the forum. I'm here mostly to supervise. I'm not really able to sit and work only on wiki. Thanks in advance for your time.

    I guess about the sprites - you can all find them in the game folders. If not you could just take screenshot in-game and crop it.

    It is mainly outdated because all the game components were changing over time and it was just really hard to keep it up-to-date. What is the point of putting something on wiki if it was to be changed the next week?

    What I will probably do is lay the foundation for what needs to be done. First working on the parts of KAG that are pretty much set in stone such as sprites, buildings, where things are bought, etc. Then adding in the parts that change from time to time such as prices.

    Ill go ahead and create a thread to compile all of the things that need to be done currently so that others who are working on the wiki can know what needs to be done, how to do it, and when to do it.

    An alternative to creating a thread is making an account on http://imgur.com/ , this won't take KAG Forums' disk space.

    Don't worry about diskspace. Links tend to expire while attachments don't. Use uploading.

    So I've seen a lot of talking but less actions. Don't mind the layout of the wiki and stuff like that. It needs content - just add it and worry later.

    I tried setting up an account today on the wiki, but it keeps stating that I got the CAPTCHA wrong. It asks "What does KAG stand for?"

    I obviously put King Arthur's Gold. Is that wrong some how?

    Should be fixed. Try now. @Duplolas

    EDIT: And please sit in our #kag.wiki channel. (@ quakenet)
    It's actually to everyone who contributes. It's sometimes easier to exchange few messages there than come to forum just to post some stuff.

    I plan on doing most of my editing in school, which blocks the channel. Ill try getting around it, but no promises.

    Also, it worked. Cool beans. :B):

    @Furai

    I have started doing some minor changes. Removing out dated objects on pages and changing the basic info such as prices, hits to break, etc to get the ball rolling. I'll do this as I teach myself how to do more of the advanced parts.

    Sure, wiki always needs updating. Dunno what currently is out of date but let the "wiki" people speak.

    You(and anyone) can join the group for contributors to see what needs to be updated/general planning. In general, I'd preferred people create a wiki account before joining so that I know they are at least interested. Most of the info should be there, but if you need something you can always send me a PM or write in one of the group threads. Honestly, there hasn't been much "activity" in updating the wiki but if your still interested the help is always nice/needed.

    Cheers!
