Well hello! I’ll have more information on Stars Beyond Reach later in the week. But for the moment, I wanted to give a quick important announcement about our wiki. Previously it was invite-only, and mainly edited by staff. Consequently it was often out of date.
Now it’s open to anyone to edit, although you do still have to create an account (to hopefully keep spambots out). There are certain pages — mainly release notes — that are protected from editing by anyone except admins. Believe it or not, I didn’t know how to set any of that up previously, hence us never really having this open before.
Thanks to Dominus Arbitrationis for setting all this up, and getting things upgraded and kicked off at all. And teaching me a thing or two in the process, as well. You can PM him through the forums or contact him through the Special:EmailUser page on the wiki. He wanted me to emphasize that this is a work in progress at the moment, so some aspects of it are still being set up right now.
There’s also some sort of slowdown on the wiki itself performance-wise right now, which I think is probably database-related. I’m working with Rackspace on getting that figured out.
But if you’ve been wanting to update stats on AI War ships, or write a tutorial for TLF or AI War or whatever, or provide strategy advice on whatever game — now you’re more than welcome to! A good wiki is the lifeblood of a lot of other similar games, so I’m really glad that we finally have something properly set up here.
