This is just a rough draft, to make sure everyone's on the same page about what we need to achieve with the wiki. Feel free to comment and suggest improvements.

Basically, the wiki will have two main sections: Tutorials, and Reference.

Tutorials will be step by step instructions on how to achieve a specific goal, e.g. http://www.staredit.net/starcraft2/Creating_a_custom_button and http://www.staredit.net/starcraft2/Simple_Kill_Tracking_Leaderboard
We should probably have a template made up for this.

Reference pages are just information about something, e.g. http://www.staredit.net/starcraft2/Game_Variants and http://www.staredit.net/starcraft2/StarCraft_II_Models

This is mostly directed at payne, who's been making tutorials that are part reference, and putting them in the reference section.

Good idea! I'll make sure to tag properly my wikis from now on. ^^

OK, time for phase two of the game plan.

In http://www.staredit.net/starcraft2/GalaxyEdit there are now a bunch of red links. Some lead to Triggers, Terrain, Data, etc. Others lead to Trigger Module, Terrain Module, Data Module.

The ones appended with Module are reference articles, or should be once they're made. They should have screenshots of the module and should explain in detail what each thing does.

The ones without Module appended should be tutorials about that specific thing. Text and Import don't need two pages, so there'll just be one reference page.

Alternatively, we just use the GalaxyEdit page for reference about the modules, by going into more detail about each module, like how it already has for Terrain. Then we have a separate tutorial page for each category. What do you guys think?

I at least think GalaxyEdit's wiki is very lacking on the aesthetic side. The images aren't very well integrated.
Else, I believe the current form (details within the wiki itself) is the best.

Funny that you write that. Someone just told me the exact same thing but about another person in that same forum who is acting pretty dumb. :bleh:

KrayZee shouted: How does one deal with a narcissist who is making things up, exaggerates their statements using words like "worst experience in my life" as to put emphasis in declaring trivial things, can't admit they are wrong and likes to escalate a situation that wasn't even a problem in the first place? I'm already at the point of just straight up ignoring this person and reporting em to forum moderators.

not sure if there's a misunderstanding, because obviously blue posts can be silly as well.
