Standardization

AFAIK Wikipedia has a general layout for articles, especially for specific kinds of articles. I believe it would be a good idea for us to do the same.

Also, things need to be standardized more beyond that. We currently have a half-useful mess of unindexed articles and tutorials and half-finished references with incomplete data and ridiculous formatting (if you can call it that).

There should be a Reference format, a Tutorial format, and perhaps others as there is need. Maybe a List format, or something like that.

The SC2 mapmaking community is just so small and varied that we aren't going to get easy-to-understand material without some kind of system that everyone should adhere to. No one else has been taking action on this point, so I figured I'd open discussion on it to find out why.

shmeeps was the first one to try to bring it in, but he left. :(
Then when GWN was about to get launched, I proposed a start for some standardization, but Devlin told me it wasn't my job and that he would do it, but he didn't. (Not trying to sound arrogant, just saying the facts)
Then came Wangbot, which successfully (imo) introduced some kind of format for a part of the Data category.
And now there's you. Let's hope this works out! :awesome:
</GWN's history of standardization>

Yep, good idea. :) Let me copy-paste the very few I had already done:
GalaxyWiki.net Convention

- "See Also" categories should be sorted alphabetically by the title of the linked page. (Title with link - Facultative Description)
- Hotkeys should be bolded.
- Field names (such as "Unit - Name") from within the Data Editor should be bolded.

OVERWATCH STATUS GO

When did I say I would? I'm confused.

EDIT:
I remember saying it wasn't your job to make up rules for the Wiki when it should be up to the collective Admins. I also remember you made the sample article or whatever as well. I don't remember talk of Standardization, though.

I guess it's my crappy memory that's failing me once again. D:

I just really can't remember talking about that, so maybe it's my memory failing. :/

What examples would you have of this? I've kept all my "See Also" sections identical, and we don't have any uncategorized pages.

RdeRenato -- If someone can help me, it will make me very happy xd
[04:55 pm]
RdeRenato -- they are right. I don't know how to describe my level but it is difficult for two things: 1. crazy enemies 2. multiple defensive points
[11:01 am]
Sie_Sayoka -- both because of low skill and population on west

Sie_Sayoka -- tbh a lot of the korean maps are impossible to play with pubs
[05:14 am]
jjf28 -- forcing players to be quicker means they'll have to multi-task more/up the APMs and use less safe approaches or have gotten the approaches down to an art so they can perform them quickly without much time to think
[05:10 am]
jjf28 -- I'd say best way to increase difficulty is to make the enemy units behave smarter, followed by forcing humans to move quicker (timers, or some mechanism forcing them forward), followed by beefing numbers/stats
[03:39 am]
jjf28 -- a huge part of special forces is game knowledge, mapping out the spawn timings, what triggers different traps, what units combine into others, they're definitely not intended to be friendly games

RdeRenato shouted: people, how do you do to verify a super difficult level if you play bad? :(
get someone better than you to play it

MTiger156 -- Sadly, I've often seen the exact opposite happen. "Special Forces" maps typically try to kill the entire team within the first 60 seconds... try to stay away from that approach.
[2020-3-30. : 10:05 pm]
MTiger156 -- ahh... philosophy of Difficulty. There is no single answer for "how much is enough?". That should be left to the players, thus I highly recommend multiple Difficulty Modes for PvE maps.
