Doom Wiki

Hey, good work on those fragglescript functions. It would be helpful if some of them had examples, though. Keep up the good work :-) Fraggle 11:40, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

wiki splintering

Hello - with no disrespect intended, why have a seperate wiki for doom legacy? Would the legacy specific information not benefit from the audience, proof-reading and cross-linking that this wiki enjoys? -- Jdowland 20:11, 26 Nov 2005 (UTC)

We've already made a custom skin for the wiki, so that it complements the main Legacy website. I doubt anyone would want this wiki turning bright green. Some of the Legacy exclusive information is already on the Doom wiki, but in a less detailed form, so I'm sure we'll still benefit from the involvement of the rest of the Doom community. That, and all the other source ports seem to have one, heh. -- DooMAD 20:29, 26 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Hmm yeah but the zdoom one doesn't even cover how to play multiplayer (if it's even possible), not a great example of how best to use them :) Re: theme; I was wondering the other day to what extent we can customise this one anyway... I'm not sure we have much flexibility since we have to present the adverts etc. (RE: legacy site... that brings up painful memories of when I was webmaster, a shortlived experience indeed) -- Jdowland 21:27, 26 Nov 2005 (UTC)
We certainly hope to document everything, but it's understandable that things sometimes get left out. The "documentation" category is our most comprehensive so far, the Console subcategory alone has 18 articles in it, heh. I think multiplayer will come under the "configuration" category, which has all the guides on how to setup and configure Legacy, but that one still needs work.
As far as the theme on this wiki goes, I think there's a section in the CSS file to set the colours of the ads. You can also replace user.gif, the little icon next to your username link, with something more Doom-ish. SysOps can edit MediaWiki:Monobook.css, but you have to change the image paths to /skins/monobook/ or they'll break (Took me a while to figure that one out, heh). -- DooMAD 22:12, 26 Nov 2005 (UTC)
