Talk:Main Page


[edit] Purpose of this Page

Use this page to talk about matters regarding the Resistance wiki.


[edit] Organization

I have created quite a few pages just so that those who are not quite sure how to make a new page can come along and edit them :)

There are also many categories that I have made.


[edit] Enemies and Maps

For these pages, make sure that there is one for each of them and on them include in information on stats (for enemies) and tips on beating them (enemies) that may be useful as well as an image. For the maps, make sure to include information such as spawn points for player and weapons. Also include good spots to play from (aka sniping?) or tips on using the map to your advantage.


[edit] Stubs

Stubs allow for easy access to pages with little to no content and give them an official label instead of just short pages and such. Try to get all of these filled out in addition to Wanted Pages because those are the ones that are linked to but not yet made which can cause some confusion to users.


I wouldn't go about just creating pages and placing a {{stub}} or just a category on them. It is better to keep pages in the wanted queue until actual information can be added (as opposed to a stub template or a category).

Stubs should be added to pages that have a bit of information, but are still between like 500-1000 bytes.

Well...I made a bunch with just categories earlier today. I plan on doing research later though to flesh them out some.


Try to flesh them out ASAP. Pages which contain no information are very frustrating for visitors and actually hurts the credibility of the Wiki. Like DS I would instead opt not to make the page at all unless the person making the page can write at least 2-3 sentences to introduce the page (and preferably closer to 200-300 words per page right to start).

Alright. I'll make this wiki my main priority right now. I'll try to get at least 20 of those pages with content today.

[edit] Spread the Love

Try to coordinate who is doing what from either here of the wiki thread. Also, make sure to include at least one other link to another page to keep everything related.

-R1DDL3S' (that was a lot :P)

Yes, we don't want many orphaned pages running around.

[edit] Weapons

I think I'm going to throw together a weapons template. Just a small table, something to hold the vital information on the weapons; such as:

  • Magazine capacity
  • Maximum capacity
  • Alternate Fire
  • Alternate Fire Capacity
  • Where Acquired

And perhaps I will have it so that the image of the gun will be on top. What do you all think?

You mean what do I think? :P Sounds good to me, I meant to do something like that but have been slacking on wiki duty recently. I'll also work up something like the weapon template on the Half Life wiki just to list them all on each weapon page. Same for the Chimera :D


[edit] The Weapons.

I was looking to contribute some info to the weapons here but I see that you don't have any weapons there from Resistance: Retribution.... Any chance you could fix that? I can make a list of the weapons if you like.

Just a note, you can create pages by searching for them with the full naming scheme and proper punctuation/capitalization and then, if they do not exist, you click "create this page" :) Nagare 23:23, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
