A quick update at the top of the new month since the last wiki report dropped quite recently. We’ve seen a flurry of activity on the wiki in the last week or so due to the timeline change, so it’s been nice to see people embracing the new continuity. Also, the wiki main page totally got a revamp! So, let’s talk about that...
If you’ve been to the wiki in the last 24 or so hours, you’ve probably noticed the new look to the main page. The idea here was to make the main page more appealing and engaging, especially from the standpoint of new members. The particular highlighted lore areas on the front page will likely change and/or expand as we move forward, but the goal was to provide members a way to get directly into some lore content without having to know what to search for to begin with. Additionally, the links in the DJB and Wiki resources boxes have been update with the idea of being more useful for newer members as well. Things like the tutorial, character page guide, and promotion guidelines have been added/highlighted while the less important content has been axed. Feel free to comment with your feedback on the new design and what you like/want moving forward.
Alas, Wiki, you are still not ginger.
This month’s featured article is one highlighting the Brotherhood’s history. It also will allow people to watch the changeover as we replace things from the old Legends timeline (such as the Vong) with more generic, non specific versions of them moving forward. The plan of the Grand Master, DGM, Voice, and wiki staff has always been to retain as much of the Brotherhood’s history as we could while still aligning ourselves with the new setting moving forward. In light of that, let’s all follow the updates to the Ninth Great Jedi War as they happen!
As for our Wikipedian of the Month, most of the time I’m reticent to award these to members of the staff. Making updates to the wiki is what they were brought on for, so it’s to be expected. However, our time change has made for a lot of the kind of mind numbing edits across many articles that are enough to drive good men to the brink of madness. Bentre Stahoes and Kalon Entar have really stepped up since the time shift took place to do some excellent work on those updates. This time, it wasn’t thankless work guys! WOTM’s for the both of ya.
