The State of the Wiki
« on: October 04, 2018, 11:05:03 AM »
As you may have noticed, the Wiki's down. Wikispaces has closed.

Fortunately, it has a new home. Hosted alongside this forum, in fact. Here's the URL: https://dfrpg-resources.paranetonline.com/index.php?title=Main_Page

Unfortunately, I haven't finished copying everything over. Attempts to automate the process failed so I'm doing it by hand. It's not a ton of fun.

Fortunately, I started before the wiki went down and the new wiki is actually perfectly usable.

Unfortunately, it looks ugly. Can't upload images at the moment. Hopefully that'll be fixed soon.

There are four things left to do: The Template pages, the individual Power pages (the Powers are there, they just don't each have a page to themselves), the individual character pages, and some random pages in the Liverpool setting. I left these for last because there are a lot of pages in each category and each page is pretty low-priority. But I'll get them done.

I've corrected the link in my sig, but other links on this forum are broken. If you want one fixed, report the post and I'll edit it for you.

Thank you for sharing this information; I was worried that all of that hard work was going to disappear forever. But I am glad that people with a heart managed to save it; can't wait to see what it looks like once its finally done.

You're very welcome.

Won't be too exciting, honestly. But there'll be a proper logo in the top left corner, and a few pictures here and there.

Right now, every time I look at a page, I see that sunflower and cringe.

Liverpool's done. Lots of typos and the like, but those were always there.

Gonna do Powers next.

And done.

Still some stuff that needs doing on the server side, but I've done my part. Every page has been copied over faithfully and in full.

Thank you so much for your efforts; it is very much appreciated as I've been meaning to look for stunts to make my swordsman better. Any recommendations?

Well, the classic is a bonus to Weapons when you're wielding a sword. Bit boring, but it's logical and effective. Might even be a bit too effective, if circumstances never push you away from using your weapon of choice. And if your Athletics isn't too good, the ability to defend against ranged attacks with Weapons is good to have.

Apart from that, it depends on who your swordsman is. Do they fight aggressively? Defensively? Do they have any special tricks?

Wiki is currently overrun by spambots. Should be an easy problem to fix, but isn't, for a variety of stupid reasons.

In any case, we're working on it.

I put up a stopgap fix a couple of days ago; it seems to be holding up okay. Wiki's currently pretty usable.
