I would love to help but personally i dont think my knowledge is accurate enough to be respected.

I honestly don't know what happened to the wiki. It became rapidly unusable. The templates need to be removed and replaced. I'd even go so far as to say that the ads on the wikia page are overwhelming and we should move the wiki to a completely different site. Build it from scratch.
I helped to build the original wikia. It was mostly a pain because we were missing data and images. We have datamined most of the data, and we have most (or maybe all at this point) of the images we need. My time was divided between capturing images, editing images, uploading images, and then finally filling in the information for those images. The actual in-game images were then supplied by Cloudcade staff, and I table flipped my sand mandalas. If we copy and paste what is already available between Richard's spreadsheet and the existing wikia, it won't be nearly as complicated as you might think.Abqu wrote:Building or rebuilding a wikipedia is gonna be tough work, and it's hard to be motivated when there are excellent encyclopedic sources already available.
