Do you mean a Wikipedia article or an actual wiki dedicated to SpaceEngine?

If you mean an article then we already have one in the works
http://en.spaceengine.org/forum/11-170-1
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Engine

If you mean an actual wiki with multiple articles and pages then you would need SpaceEngineer's permission.

It would be nice if there was an official wiki with certain people having privileges to edit the wiki.

Ah, a wikipedia article at last! It was getting a bit silly, it not existing for so long.

...who published that? It's not supposed to be published yet, it's not nearly ready. That needs to be taken offline until it can be made into a respectable article. In its current state it will probably be axed by moderators anyway.

This is the page we're supposed to be working on and getting ready to publish.

That other page should be deleted...

He meant an actual individual wiki, which he apparantly already made here however there is no content in it yet





I will be inactive on this forum for the time being. Might come back eventually

I don't know what is exactly the point of such a wiki for SpaceEngine now. Maybe it will be useful whel the game will be released, to describe the different planet classes, the ships and their capabilities, for the game.




Want some music of mine ? Please go here !

I thought space engineer was making an in-game wiki kinda like the civilopedia for civ. I can't really see a reason for this wiki to be.

Quontex, that is a completely different thing. That wiki is used for storing descriptions of individual bodies and some in-depth info you dont normally get(albedo, avg molar mass of the atmosphere etc.). IMO it would be useful to make a community wiki once we have some sort of gameplay.

Why don't we just replace the other article with that one? It seems much better.

Well, this is annoying.

I wanted to make a SpaceEngine wiki myself, promising myself that I would make it work, however, I ran into a problem.

I went over to wikia and started filling a wiki submission, however, this guy apparently took BOTH the domains spaceengine.wikia AND space-engine.wikia. Now, you might say that I could just go there and start making new articles, however I don't think it is worth it - the only administrator on both these wikis seems to be him, who hasn't been online since 4 months ago. Without anyone who is active who has admin privileges, we can't, for example, change the background(which looks terrible).

I've also sent a gamepedia request, however I haven't received a response yet.

Does anybody know how we could get around this problem?

I sent him a PM about cooperating with him on the wiki 7 months ago. He read it and did not reply. So I certainly wouldn't expect him to be helpful even if you do manage to contact him. I don't have any particular suggestions on how to deal with this, though there must be some way to resolve this issue through established procedures on Wikia.

I just went over to wikia regarding this. It is possible to 'adopt' a wiki if certain prerequests are met. I'd have to contribute a few articles first and the admin should have been absent for at least 2 months. Since the second prerequest is already fufilled, I am going to go on and make a few moderately large articles and then apply for admin rights. Hopefully this issue will get resolved and we will be able to add people that actually want to contribute.
