ZyEl Wiki!

Post by JrEye » Fri Mar 16, 2007 11:30 pm

Decided to start one, i mean hey I barely have enough time to update the site for everyone so why not have the community collaborate and created a nice batabase for Zy-El?

If Kato wants to be the organizer for the wiki I will gladly delete the one Ive created so he can do it, otherwise I feel we can get started and make the best database possible for a mod.

Currently its protected meaning you have to be a member of the space to make changes (I want to ensure that not just anyone makes changes). If quite a few people find it a hassle to sign up ill put it to public.

Now right now its nothing fancy, i just mainly have placeholders for future pages and such. and havent really added much of the text from the manual as of yet.

You can find it: http://zyel.wikispaces.com/

If people like this enough, instead of my database site I could just xfer that info to the wiki and just have that as the mod database.

I'll let Kato know about this since he doesn't log on frequently. I can add to it, but not now. After all, being co-mod has its advantages.

:cool: What you have looks good. Thank you, JrEye, for doing this. :) I, myself, know very little about wikis but I do know that they are a great way to share information. There have been numerous Zy-El player support websites in the past and they're a lot of work for one person.

:) Given today's technology - why not use a wiki to compile information about Zy-El?

:arrow: I'll support it and you want any graphics or Zy-El specific information, I'd be willing to share it - except the source files, of course.

Only problem i have with the wikispace is that the tables are basic and dont support multilines yet so hopefully theyll change that, for now im separating mods with commas, know its a bit of a read with certain items but thats the best i can do without having too much whitespace

I like the look of the site so far.

What is your preferred style for item stats? Are we better served with abbreviations like IAS, ATLD BOS... or Increased Attack Speed,....
When to use pictures (Poster, Exceptional, Unique, Artifact), should the stats be plain text or a screen shot?

And I don't mind my part being corrected, I'm a bit messy when it comes to these things. :D

Well though abbreviations would save reading, I dont know all the abbreviations and im sure someone new wont either

since most items have ranges I think SS + Plain text would work

I added two runewords, the first one was a six socket, but its really far down the page, so i did another one in the two socekt. Check out the format and let me know if you like it. I was thinking for the ones that had multiple items (like can be made with a weapon or armor), I would just go below what I have and add for the different base items. Neither of the ones I did have multiple base items, but I can do one to show you what I had in mind. If someone has a better idea, by all means, go for it. But Since no one else has started I thought I would take a stab at it.

I went ahead and did aarvark, which takes a druid pelt or a tall charm. If you like that format, good, if not anything better is fine with me. I'll stop rambling now...

ps. It might be benificial if this post becomes a sticky, just thought I'd throw that out there...

Maybe we should bash out what we want as the format for the wiki and we should also maybe establish some basic rules like "members may post additions but JrEye has sole discretion whether to retain or remove content as and when seen fit" or "discussion of realms/servers is banned and anyone doing so will have their priveleges revoked" (after all if we link to the wiki from the Keep we also have to abide by the Keeps rules in addition to any of our own wiki rules). These are just examples and I think more discussion is required. I am just thinking we need to formalise things a bit more.

Your thoughts are welcome.

I think Al-T has a good point. I think a common format would be good. I also agree with the rules and such. I would say, anything that we would not put on the keep should not be on the wiki.

@slayerofgix
I think it is better to name the Runeword pages directly after the Rundeword
"Truth (Runeword)" instead of "Truth me 255 Zy-Shael-Nef-Sur-Ber-Um". If the information about the runeword is incorrect or even changes it's easier to modify.

Alright, I'll go in and change it as I go...

I am going to keep the level requirment in so that it is more helpful for players that are below level 255

You know, that link and page name can differ?
I think for the runeword list it is best to make a table like in the userguide, link the name of the runeword to the page of that runeword and name the page like "Truth (Runeword)", so that "Truth" links to "Truth (Runeword)"

Basic rules i believe should be implimented:

1) I myself get emails of any changes that are done when a page is modified other than by me. Any other organizer that i have established can do this as well (but remember this can and will flood your inbox). I usually dont change what is added besides formatting.

2) Follow all rules set by the keep for Wiki.

3) Be accurate as possible with information you post

4) Formatting:

Uniques: Tabled - Name, Level Req, Stats. Separate each mod with ',' since soft return or <br> doesnt currently work

Runewords: current format is fine, when displaying runeword stats should be like this:

Created:
Base Types:
Runes:
Level:
Attributes:
<Runeword Mods>
<Mods from Runes/Gems/Jewels>

Separate runewords if its in multiple item types (ie weapons and charms since they will have different stats). If for instance they end up having the same range of stats they can be combined to take up less space

As far as anything else I thing everyone has done splendid with it.
