Post subject:  Requests for the Skybrary

Just what the title says folks, make some requests for articles at the Skybrary! Anything from in-game items to how-tos, to Skyrate Created Content. I will see what I can do about getting it up quickly, but remember I have many articles to write for the Skybrary. The more info, or links to info you can provide for an article, the faster I can put up that article.

Thanks!
Hans "Firefox" Raginhart

Captain Mullet feels a history of Captain Mullet would make a great addition to the skybary!

PvP SCOFFS at your avatar and notes that you should be called "Captain Frontmullet," for your mullet is backwards.

The style you're looking for, PvP, is "flock of seagulls".

On topic please, I don't want to have to wade through a bunch of CR-4P so I can find the truly valuable posts. And thank you Allii for taking care of that for us.

I got lotsa requests! I mean, since you asked...

1) I would like to see the main page be more useful. It should contain a link to Planes, and to Upgrades (once they are useful, which I hear they are going to be).

2) Upgrades need work. You should probably make a template? Anyway, each upgrade should list cost (as %), weight, slot, benefits, etc. Organize into categories. Link to supplying skylands. Have supplying skylands link back to upgrades available.

3) Why is the main searchbox on the front page to edit a new article, rather than to search for an existing one?

I keep telling myself I'll do one or more of those, but since I haven't yet, and since you asked for requests, there you are!

1. There is an Index, linking you to all but the newest articles. To get an "All Articles" list, click the number in "We are currently editing 154 articles."

2. Just finished a template for upgrades. We will work on all the linkings.

3. The "search box" as you call it says, right above it "To write a new article, enter the page title in the box below." The search bar is in the upper right hand corner.

FF - the template you made for upgrades pages is kind of bulky. I don't think it really needs a listing of everything the upgrade could affect; we only really care about what it actually does affect. And the other things Alessa mentioned (slots, skylands, etc.) are more important than notes that it doesn't affect things, when it's kind of a given if they're not mentioned.

I might play with it, but I don't actually know much about wiki editting, so I may not get anything done.

I noticed today a bunch of skylands were missing. Here's a list!

Kadith
Uurkwerk
Volstoy
all the Alpha platforms
Aleut
Juliet
Arcadia
Steppe
Jordan
Leng
Isla Di Pasa
Lhasa
Tehras
Valvia
Grottopolis


I think that's all that are missing. I'm sorry, I'd get writing myself but I don't really have enough free time to spend on the forums.

I've cleaned up http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Upgradebox quite a bit.
Take a look at http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Efficiency_Mod to get a look at the template in action.
