Cool Era Wiki

So... I've been given the task to do Era's Wiki site. It's not finished yet but I'd like people to show their opinions. (focusing on finishing jobs atm)

http://era-wiki.wikidot.com/

What do you think about it? What does need?:o

I think if you focus on this, it could prove to be a very helpful instrument for the community. Some things to point out while you're still in the early stages:

Some commands, such as /helpmsg, /daynight, /bulletfx, etc. are actually now available in the Options window accessible by clicking the Wrench icon in the top left of a players game screen, so there are sections of that which may require updating in your "Commands" section.

I did notice that a lot of the information currently on there, including screenshots/information about the Interface, are from the wiki Skyld and I had up, so it'd probably be a good idea to make sure all the info is still good and/or may need updating.

The "Keys" section has an error with the "Left/J" and "Down/K" direction info as to what those keys actually do.

"Rules" could probably be kept up-to-date by copy/pasting from the in-game Rules section in the News GUI.

You could possibly gather contact information for local staff as well for the "Contact us" section. Most of the higher staff wouldn't/shouldn't mind about outside contact to save trouble with being contactable during world-wide times.

Yeah a list of commands if they are not their already, some info on gangs, some info on the new music stuff, maybe locations of important buildings, such as the mines and such, AND info on the quests. Okay hope you got that, so many commas it might be confusing to read lol.

It's rather unprofessional looking right now; there are a lot of grammatical errors and such. However, I think it could eventually be a good resource, though it'd be better if you used real wiki software (MediaWiki), or allowed anonymous edits. Very few people are going to be dedicated enough to register on that site in order to fix a few things.

The main page is blank and boring. The current staff section is outdated (there's a current list of all dev staff in the "n" menu). The weapons page is a bit messy. It should have a listing at the top of all the letters that link to either a separate page for each letter (first letter of the weapon), or link to an anchor on that page. It would also be better if you didn't use the Q menu images, and instead used PHP or something to generate the bars, and had a way to collapse/expand each item.

"News" seems like a waste, and I have a feeling it will just become outdated. It would be better to just leave a note on the main page that news can be found in the "n" menu (would also be possible to supply your site with the actual N menu text eventually).

The commands are also outdated like TSA said (e.g. /ap 0...100). Feel free to make a list of outdated/removed commands and post it here, and I can remove them from the N menu.

The jobs section needs more screenshots, and a separate page for each job, with an "index" page that links to each and gives a small description, as well as what each job is good for (e.g. "Flower picking is good for beginners trying to...")

On the FAQ page, the "; )" at the top looks bad. You should also have a space after the colon "Q: Hello?" for example.

A cool idea would be a map that you can hover over certain buildings. You can probably use Flickr or something for this, and embed it, but I've never tried. I know it's possible to highlight certain parts of the image using Flickr or another image service.

The left panel looks very poor, and the text is worded funny ("How to edit pages?" for example). Too much of it is wasted on moderation tools. Perhaps only show it if the member is actually logged in.

EDIT: Also, a good idea for staff would be something like what I did for this outdated Events Team page (which was barely started).
