Wiki?

Postby -mrt- on Mon Feb 28, 2011 12:12 am

In my opinion, a wiki is a great idea to collect and connect information. Would it not make sense to set up a wiki on interlopers, like the VDC?

Alternatively we could work on organizing and expanding on the VDC.

A wiki would be an extremely good idea, but we don't really have that much info to put on it without duplicating the vdc in the first place.

I'd agree on dis, BUT, our own wiki would be more flexible.

When this was first posted, I thought the same as Jman. But thinking about it more, it starting to sound like a better idea, we got plenty of devoted people here to help out.


Though, can we somehow make it have a matching theme with the rest of the site?
Have a question related to modding or something I posted? Something that needs staff attention? I haven't been active lately, but feel free to PM me or message me on Steam(link below)

Shouldn't be hard at all to theme it.

I like this idea, I kinda feel that a Wiki style interface will benefit the tuts more.
Especially when multiple experts in certain fields can modify tuts with more/better information.

This too.

I often find information on the VDC to be a bit rubbish or outdated, presumably because the people who have the knowledge to maintain it are all off making their own seperate wikis.

This four.
I'm already in the mindset that whenever i learn something new while coding source, I'll upload it to the VDC wiki.
There's still a few people dedicated to keeping it up to date, but some of the stuff needs a dust off.

My problem with the VDC is, that you have to register separately for being able to contribute conent. In my opinion, everyone should be able add or change stuff in a wiki, without being forced to sign up. Anonymouse users could suggest changes/additions, that are checked by regsitered members, then, before it will be added.

The problem with that is, In Large scale applications(Wikipedia) it works but on a smaller and slower scale(VDC) it takes longer to correct malicious edits.

The Registration Gate attempts to try and limit it to Human(non-automated) edits and creates a removable entity(banning).



I think either way we go it is beneficial to the Source Modding community.
One benefit to consider in a dedicated Wiki is support for other platforms.(UDK, Unity)

And we could always copy and paste article from the Lopers wiki to the VDC.

No one says we have to duplicate VDC's type of information. After all, the VDC's strength is in specific details of the engine and its technicalities. The Wiki system could be useful to us for things like tutorials, techniques(Those little tips we have?), assets (we can upload all of our maps that we'll never use and maybe someone will do something with it) and the like. For information that intrudes on the VDC's domain, there won't be anyone stopping us from adding the information to the VDC and linking to it.

The real problem is going to be content. Do we have enough people that are going to contribute? Is the total amount of information we have to put up worth the addition of a whole wiki?
