    Wiki Page of the Day

    Post by Emergence on Wed Jul 31, 2013 12:05 pm

    As you all know, the wiki is the foundation for this great place, and it has thousands of pages that have been edited by thousands of people. We thought it would be fun to do a new feature called the page of the day, where we pick a random page, link it and give a shout out to the folks who contributed to that page. We can discuss the subject of the page, how it's changed over time and if the need presents itself, hop in and make some tweaks. It's a great exercise in shedding light on the sheer amount of work that goes into a community wiki and a great way to stroll down memory lane. We may even learn a thing or two along the way! Praise the Sun

    TODAY'S PAGE

    Warriors of Sunlight


    Praise the Sun Praise the Sun Praise the Sun 

    What better way to kick things off than with the iconic Jolly Co-op covenant!  When you think Dark Souls, you often think Solaire in his radiant gloriousness.  This page underwent several revisions as the launch requirements for entering the cove were changed via patches and players began establishing trends in level ranges for areas.

    Sounds good E. Not suckin up but this idea deserves a +1 happy
    Do we discuss here or on that particular thread? Meaning bring it back to life.

    If discussed here, I think co op has died down quite a bit. Could be because it's summer, but also because of other things.

    I think we discuss it here, since there is no thread to actually post in.

    I really think co-op isn't as popular is just because of the fact that people have gotten bored and moved away from the game.

    I'm talking PvE aspect hon. PvP is still pretty strong. I think it's mainly because of all the hacks and mods killing gameplay. I'll admit I use MM but I play offline cause I suck at PvP even with an OP toon.
    Guess I haven't found the right build yet lol

    I think if anything 20 some people for just one page shows just how easy and foolproof it is to make edits.

    That makes no sense at this time Tolvo. This thread is about DkS original not DkS2. We can't discuss how DkS2 has changed if we haven't played it yet.

    TODAY'S PAGE

    Bonfires
    ^ Click to Visit! ^

    :weap-fire: :weap-fire: :weap-fire: 

    Another iconic emblem of Dark Souls, bonfires serve as a haven for all players.  Symbolically and functionally important to the game, they are an ever present reminder of the determination needed to overcome the intense challenge of this game.  This page evolved over time as players charted locations, warpable fire locations and more info regarding what you can do while at a fire.

    Ublug was the MVP of this page, he was all over it from start to finish! Lift We also have an example of someone running into the futility of trying to troll the wiki by deleting content!  Reversions are so simple to make, it takes a troll twice as long to destroy as it does for us to revert!

    And I'm seeing there is some tweaking that can be done, as at first glance it looks like the DLC bonfires are missing.  Good opportunity to get some practice making edits for anyone who was looking to jump in but wasn't sure where!

    I don't understand why would anyone bother with deleting the wiki's content.
    The wiki is an amazing source of information for everyone to use. Why ruin something that only helps people.

    Probably because people can not find joy in their own accomplishment, instead seeking to ruin others.

    Because respect is old school and people now a days forget wut that word means.
    Or you could ask why do people gank? Why do they hack? Why do people murder, ****, or maim? As doomer said, (but put differently), people find joy by ruining others lives.
    Personally I think wiki's are great but they give too many people power they don't deserve. IMO, the wiki should be made the same as this forum but modded better. No offense to the team. I just mean 24/7. Like a real job. Someone HAS to be there. Or, make the wiki a different way. As soon as someone posts, a pm gets sent to mod team with a link and it gets checked asap and fixed if there's a problem. And bans for person screwing around on it.

    The RSS feed takes care of all that. For having thousands of people making anonymous edits, the wiki operates in a remarkably organized and efficient fashion. Trolling incidents are super super rare and when they happen are reverted in seconds. In actuality, people have zero ability to create any kind of lasting damage, and the organic, emergent nature of the wiki requires much less oversight than the forums do. When you have thousands of people editing, truth and sense prevail. I pointed out the troll attempt to show just how futile it is to even try to erase content, and highlight the easy to edit and impossible to screw up nature of the wiki.

    The seat Rebecca was in before I threw her onto the road while going full speed.

    Looking at her channel out of interest I cannot believe she still makes music. Even more bewildering is the fact people still watch her videos too.
