BRINGIN' IT BACK
« on: August 24, 2010, 12:45:17 AM »
I propose we bring back the SS wiki, instead of whatver the shit is on there now (http://wiki.solidsurf.info) go back to mediawiki. Could be an idea to use that as the main page, and keep the forums as the subdomain (as the cookies don't seem to like the subdomain > domain redirect at times).

Either that or a landing page so visitors could choose to visit the forums or the wiki (or the uploader).



Discuss.

Looks unanimous so far. But what is the wiki used for? Information on mapping and stuff? If that's the case, I'd say yes. This website has proven itself usefull for bringing me useful information, so it would only make it easier if the wiki would be the homepage.

Nobody ever paid attention to it and there wasn't really anything referencing it or linking to it on the forums so barely any new people knew it existed...

I am all for more content on the site. If it is integrated better, it may become a good tool that people will want to use. Having tutorials in wiki form is nicer than a tutorial forum.

A surf-mapping FAQ section would be nice too. People asking questions in the forum could be directed to the right sections.

Nobody knew about it (except for oldies) hell when I joined it was broken. If it was the domain frontpage, it would be used a hell of a lot more. I can dedicate a bit of time to get stuff sorted for it if you want to add it.

spoz should include his XBTT project here...

No can do, its nowhere near RC1 and it can't be used on shared hosting due to the caching. Hosts don't like dedicating 64mb of ram to a single user for caching \


Didn't you complain about people quoting and posting a blank reply a few months back? o_O

Alright the MediaWiki is up at http://wiki.solidsurf.info

You can log in with your forums account.

Anyone have any suggestions - or better, contributions - for the logo?

Alright, a cool thing to have on the main page would be a search/form bar that you can type the name of a tutorial or ask a question and have it search the tutorials to find you the right one and if it doesn't find any it has a response of saying "We could not find a tutorial to help you, you can go to *enter link for SS question board* and pose your question and our community will help you out* or something like an active Q/A page in the wiki where we can post/respond in there instead.

As soon as I get some time I'll be adding articles, just a bit hectic getting ready for college to start again.

Got a bit disheartening when only myself and Knife were adding articles.
