    Topic in question - http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/The+Catacombs

    So, I uploaded this to youtube earlier thinking I was just the bees knees with my craftiness.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bXDWnXdXuA

    Upon further inspection the wiki already contains an almost identical video.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9pw1Zwj2UE

    The differences in the videos are extremely slim. The most noticeable being the lack of paladin Leeroy's soapstone sign and the boss fight afterwards.

    Now I am not a vane man. Not so much as to shamelessly replace an existing video on the wiki without community approval. So I just wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts on the matter of which video better conveys the shortcut and area.

    Why not do like the other video uploaders, just delete their and replace it with your own, over and over and over and over.. Look at the page history of for example this page to get an idea of how it's done: http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/page/history/four+kings :roll:

    But seriously speaking, there's no point in replacing it if it's already good, unless it's just a random youtube video. We would prefer dedicated videos from wiki members over random videos.

    In the end I redid the entire section to be more detailed. I was going to link key phrases to item/character pages but I'm just way too beat right now. I also replaced the video since, it is above all else a catacombs page. My video included paladin leeroy, the loot, as well as the boss. I feel like a more informative text section is also preferable to one that cap locks LEEROY JENKINS and poorly describes the route down + items/enemies involved.
