As I learned to play this game, I was at first amazed to find we had our own wiki-but very quickly would up relying on the magic google spreadsheet, and the radio to answer my questions. It seems virtually every page in the Skybrary relevant to gameplay has been left untouched since before 2.4 went online.

The wiki has the potential to be the answer to almost all questions regarding the game's mechanics (or at least those with definite values), but we need to work on it!:fear: Please join the wiki and help edit the relevant pages so the wiki's once again a resource for new players!


Here's a page I've been trying to edit, that has clearly been using the old game's values regarding crew, so I added what I believe to be more accurate data for traders. The other crew still need work, as does MUCH of the skybrary. If you find pages out of date please correct them if you can, or tag them for edits/post them in this thread so we can work on them!

http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Crew :chatty:

EDIT: We've created a Catagory to help sort the outdated info, if you spot a page that needs updating, please add the line "[[Category:NeedsUpdate|*]]" at the very bottom of the page if it's not already there. Anyone can add this, so if you see a page that needs correction but can't edit/don't know how to fix it, just add that line to the bottom, and we can work on it :chatty:

How do you help edit pages?

If you see anything wrong/anything that can be (legitimately) added there's a link at the very bottom of the article (as in the one I linked) that allows you to edit. It helps to create an account so you can watch pages you want to correct, track your own edits and use the talk pages with other users, but anyone can edit, so if you see something you can correct, you can just click edit, and add you information, just try to follow the formatting used in the rest of the wiki.

How'd I miss this thread?

Anywho... as with previous rounds, it takes a while to get everything updated post-reset. Plus, it's a little tricky knowing what's been updated and what hasn't.

If you're unsure about a particular set of data or numbers, don't be shy about adding "{{verify}}" just beside the 'questionable' info. That'll mark it as something that needs to be verified. In fact, a list of everything tagged for verification (there are only a few, ATM) can be found at http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Category ... ion_needed.

As Kitteh mentioned, http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Category:NeedsUpdate includes a list of pages in desperate need of help.

And, of course, http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Stubs lists several pages in need of a little expansion.

Feel free to hop in where ever you're comfortable.

I had noticed that "is that a mountain ahead?" poster on lots of pages, but since there's no way to actually tell what's all tagged by that I thought we needed a cat. for that-needs verification seemed like something a bit different, so I didn't want to go slapping that on everything. Is there a way to include the "NeedsUpdate" cat. with the reset tag? They go hand-in-hand, but the tag makes users think it's out of date, but doesn't help us find what to fix :shock:

I left a message on your Skybrary Talk page, Kitteh, but now, pages currently using the ResetProne Template will now be automagically included in the NeedsUpdate Category (assuming I did it correctly :) ).
