Suggestions / Wiki Improvements
« on: December 17, 2012, 12:18:11 AM »
I've just recently gotten hooked on this game something fierce, and as with other games,  I enjoy contributing to the Wikis. The Unofficial Gnomoria Wiki is great, but there are a few head-scratchers I wanted to bring to attention in the hopes of garnering support for a potential re-haul:
  • There seems to be a lot of the same data spread around on multiple pages, so finding the right information consists of digging through several sections. For example, Economy, Materials, Crafting, and Items#Ore all have information on the same ores. Another example: Gnomes#Sleep and Gnome_Health#Sleep.
  • The only place to find what the Attributes (Fighting, Brawling etc.) mean is in the Gnomes#Attributes section, but Gnomes aren't the only ones with these Attributes. It seems data like this needs to be moved into a more generalized category.
The tricky part is categorization. Iron ore is a material, but it's also an item, and you can craft with it. So does it go in Materials, Items, or Crafting?

My first educated guess would be to follow the same route as other similar games, such as the Minecraft Wiki with their Template:Items, by defining the iron ore in the Raw Materials category, and then on it's main page, describe what you can craft with it, where you find it, it's value, etc.

Essentially, none of the work already done will need to be re-done. It would just need to be moved and organized.

I'm still new to the game, so I don't have a complete picture on what should go where, but I'd be happy to discuss improvements if anyone else is willing.  Any thoughts?
