Alteil Wiki?

Postby Moozze » Fri Jul 11, 2008 11:17 am

There should at least be a decent wikipedia site for Alteil.

Edit: I made one, but it's seriously nothing now, I don't have time and my english is not good enough to write an entire Wiki, please edit it if you can add something:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alteil

Edit again: I bet it's gonna be deleted :(

Well, someone deleted it already, but we didn't do it. Maybe because it sounded too much like sales points? Don't know. I made an on site wiki with the idea of porting the glossary over to it and such, but I haven't had the chance to make one actually on Wikipedia yet.

Actually, there already is a wikipedia article about Alteil.

How should English Alteil be different than Japanese Alteil?

I would say Yes it should because not all of us can read Japanese. Plus this is the English Alteil and it is slightly different then the Japanese Alteil...

I've gotta assume you were being sarcastic Grain, right? By that same logic, why do we have an english alteil at all, we can all play on the japanese servers after all?

I've never really worked with wikipedia before so it may not be very well designed but I've put up a very basic initial page.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alteil

Assuming it doesn't get deleted I'll probably go back and update it with more information as I find the time.

Maybe we (being us, the players because you staffers are a little too busy) should build an Alteil Wikia not unlike the Yu-Gi-Oh! Wikia. If I have the time, I'll construct a bare bones version and everyone can fill it in properly.

People were straying off topic so I split the promotions topic since this Wiki idea seems like something people would like to discuss further.

X_X it was deleted within a minute of posting it, dang. I spent a good 45 minutes typing that all up and longer then that learning how to make a wiki page. There explanation to me was "Alteil is not a notable topic for a wikipedia article". What? Wikipedia is filled with articles explaining random things far FAR less notable then alteil. Obviously my lack of knowldge on how to use wikipedia is working against me cause I'm missing some key component. I'd even provided links and references too :(

I had the same problem too, how to cunstruct a wiki? I found out about the headlines and stuff but still... I guess you could copy the code from another wiki and fill it in for Alteil.

And did I really open this topic? I can't remember....
