OVERWATCH STATUS GO

Just so everyone is on the same page, Jack has been talking to our affiliates about the idea of a multi-site Wiki collaboration. An Admin from each site would have an Admin position on the Wiki and be able to take backups whenever necessary. Each site would also link to this page, and in turn the Wiki would advertise each site equally as main contributors. We actually have a few people on board for this, which is great, so ideally the site should be up in a week or so (once I get the final "Ok" from IP). Everyone here would need to re-register on there, but I can import all our current Wiki articles without a problem.

With so many people involved, this Wiki could potentially be an incredible resource for SC2.

The following is a "TO DO" list of needed fixes and changes on GalaxyWiki:
  • Modify the other skins so the "logo" isn't cut off.

I'll write up an agreement that each member site would need to agree to, it'll be fairly simple, as in "Don't break stuffz, don't flame, you get a backup once a week, don't over-advertise your site other than the allocated areas, each site gets one admin-type, preferably not the admin of the site so you don't get distracted from your main site."

Also, devlin, do you know if there can be a staff forum-esque area of the wiki?

The admins of the Wiki can export on their own, so it may just be more beneficial for them to do it when they want to rather than have me send them a backup every week.

As for the forum, I don't think the Wiki itself can do that, but I can probably add like forum.galaxywiki.net to it for a staff-only forum.

I think pretty much every one of our affiliates hates mapster, plus sixen wouldn't want it. (Yeah I know you were joking but someone was going to bring it up sometime).

I lol'd pretty hard in front of my screen.
Sixen stopped being active over sc2mapster. While I was talking with Progammer yesterday, I understood it was now mostly vjeux the admin. We might want to contact him?

I'm working on a font-neutral logo for the site now. I really like how PlanetKosmos (the font we use for SEN's logo) looks, but I'll post a few options to see what you guys think. Keep in mind I just kept the same layer effects on them from the first option, and that could change. It just looked sexy on option 1. :D

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3

Option 4

Option 5


The current temp "logo" looks like this:


The "Wiki" text is easier since I used some random Sci-Fi font for the current one.

I personally like 1 and 3 (the Battle.net font).

3 is simple and to the point. Use it. Not feeling the layer effect though. :3



None.

I like how 1 surrounds "Wiki", though.
I vote for 1.
I like #4 as well.

P.S. Create a poll in the thread.

1. It is by far the best.

Like I said at the beginning of that post, I just changed the font each time. The effect will be different based on the font. :D

EDIT:

I agree, though that isn't too much of an issue. I updated Option 3 with a possible "Wiki" underneath as an example.

I like option 3 best, although I don't know if I like it a whole lot :P

I've notified hive and udmod that we're getting the wiki started.

Yeah, I'm liking that a lot. I changed http://www.galaxywiki.net/ for the hell of it and it looks slick. Thanks to Jack for suggesting the font. :)

Just wondering if there are any estimations as of the popularity/traffic the site will get. :O



None.

OVERWATCH STATUS GO

No estimations, but basically it would be at least what our Wiki already gets since it will replace our Wiki. It will also be the Wiki of at least 3 other sites as well, so that'll bring more traffic.

So our current Wiki link will simply lead to this website, right?

Yes, and all the current articles on our Wiki would be transferred to the new one.

GalaxyWiki.Net Consitution

Part the First: All member sites agree to have equal privileges, regardless of size, popularity, and productivity.

Part the Second: All member sites agree to only advertise their site in the correct area, without spamming links to their site in incorrect places.

Part the Third: Each member site is allowed to choose one representative, who will be given administrative powers at the wiki, and will also be given staff forum access.

Part the Fourth: All member sites agree to link to GalaxyWiki.Net in the main menu bar of their site.


What else does the agreement need?

Oh yeah, who'll be SEN's wiki rep? I'm up for it if devlin doesn't want to, even though I'll be a bit busy over the next month or so.

NudeRaider -- *make new tiles
[10:15 am]
NudeRaider -- The map structure only ever recognizes one tileset at a time. So you'd have to define your own map format then make an .exe that can load such files. I don't think it's ever been done; it sounds like a lot of work. What's commonly done with modding is creating a new tileset. Then you decide which tiles go in there. You can also make new ones. You will probably also have to create a new palette as the different tilesets share only part of their colors. Finally entering speculation territory you could maybe use EUDs to dynamically change the graphics of certain tiles. Not sure if it's possible, but if it is, you better make a topic for it.
