  • Hello there.

    I think its kinda hard to navigate around here. Why don't you add the games categories on navigation tab menu anyway? That way, new user like me could easliy see which games are in adventure, fantasy, racing etc etc..just a suggestion. 

    Btw, no offense but your mainpage looks disorganized, I hope you don't mind me arranging some bit

    • Thanks for the constructive criticism! I'm not the best with reorganizing main menus and it's great that someone like you fixed it once and for all! I will add the categories one by one shouldn't have someone that's new to the wiki take all the work. Thanks again! Hope you enjoy editing and tell me on any other things that can be improved on!

    • I meant for this one actually MediaWiki:Wiki-navigation. I take it you like the new mainpage look now then? xD

    • I like the look and am also thankful for the help! I can always copy it on the navigation page then. Sorry I was in a hurry and thought that's what you meant :(

  • Hey Zack. I've just started making something that on my home wiki (GTA Wiki) is pretty good. I've started making pages for years. There is a template that will be on all these pages that makes transitioning between them easier. If you want to have a look at a finished version of it, go on the GTA Wiki and type in a random date then have a look at it. Thanks.

    • I also think that the lists should be in order of months of when things happened. Take a look at the 2013 page for an example.

    • Nice idea! How come I haven't thought of this! We can always use the decades categories to help. Gameinformer also has a list of the big games that have come out in the past few years, you can use those to help! Thanks again!

  • Hi. The VideoGameDatabase Wiki looks good. However, for a spotlight it would need a couple of tweaks. There are a small number of uncategorized pages which need sorting out. You also have nearly 300 pages marked as stubs; please work on reducing that to only 1/5th of your content, or about 270 pages total. Let me know here when you have done that and I will check again.

    • Hi. Well the goal is to have less than 1/5th of your total content be a stub.

      So if you have 500 pages, you could have 100 stubs. If you have 5000 pages you can have 1000 stubs. You have 1414 pages, so you can have about 283 stubs. You have 291 but I'll call that close enough.

      The goal is a better reading experience for a visitor; if too much of the content is stub-length or marked as a stub then they are going to feel frustrated reading the site and wasting clicks on incomplete pages... From that point of view, a smaller wiki with higher-quality content pages is better.

      I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list.

    • Ok. Thanks! Now I understand. I was a little bit worried because some of those I couldn't really fix but you saved me some stress during this holiday season. :)

  • I see, I see. So we have similar projects. Not surprising in the least. As of the moment mine is merely a collection of lists. If you want to help me expand mine I will gladly assist in helping yours. Ironic the names of our wiki's are already pretty close.

  • Just noticed the ad for the wiki here at the bottom of a wiki page (ironically enough, I was already here to begin with lol).  Grats!  Here's hoping traffic picks up!

    • Ya, suprised it got excepted pretty early. It's been adding some new traffic but usually it's just idiots making silly things in talk pages and forums.

  • Hey, I was checking out the Vandalism Warnings page, and I thought I would let you know that from my background in wikia administration I know how to ban people, if that is what you'd like to do to them and if you happen to not yet know how to do so yourself (we all have to start from somewhere, right? :) ).  You can ban registered users as well as simple IP address log ins, for varied amounts of time (even banning someone permanently).

    You don't need to make me an admin here or anything if you want this done, of course — I can simply just inform you how to do it.  You can also temporarily upgrade users to administration status to do work you don't want to do yourself and then downgrade them afterwards (which I've done myself before, for extra help on some of the bigger wikias).

    Just give me a shout if you want/need to know how. This is one of the wikias I'm focused on checking and working on daily, so you know I'll get to it ASAP. =)

    • maybe like two weeks I guess.

      If it's not entirely innaproppiate than its like the least possible type of ban.

    • Cool, didn't want to do any potential bannings of vandals before I was sure what time rules you wanted to set, because each wiki is different.  I'll work on figuring out who those vandals were if they haven't been banned already and set to that tomorrow, then.  It'll probably be in the afternoon (Alaska Standard Time so probably mid- to late- afternoon or evening anywhere else) since I have to drive the 5 hours into town but I'll definitely work on that for you now. =)
