A question about GES wiki pages
« on: June 06, 2014, 10:50:47 am »

This is a question I was supposed to ask more than a year ago: what happened to the GES wiki a couple of years (can't recall how many) ago when the wiki became a collection of broken links? There are some working links such as "Basic gameplay", "Weapons" and "Awards". If you click the "Weapons" link you get another collection of broken links, none of them working.

I am absolutely positive that there used to be well written weapon data available (damage, accuracy, description) for every weapon in the game a few years back. This hasn't been the case for a long, long time. I wonder why, since the weapon damages haven't changed since that time and all the weapons function as they did before. So the reason obviously isn't outdated information.

I believe I know all the weapon data by heart, but sometimes I'd like to paste a link to the wiki for a new GES player, but then the issue becomes that the data is no longer available. I also remember there being a cool looking list of official maps, looking similar to the mission selection screen in the original GoldenEye007. But not anymore.

It's not like it would require any work like doing the weapon descriptions since the descriptions have already been done. Why aren't they there for every new player to read and learn from?

Anyone can push changes to the wiki, you just need to make an account.  Some of the pages can be restored by clicking the old revisions (clock) link on the right-hand side of the page, which is what I've done with the pages you mentioned.

au contraire, that's exactly the spirit of a wiki.
Wikipedia also depends on content published by the users.

Honestly Roger, you really shouldn't push your luck because you're not fooling anyone.

If Arnold Palmer is Roger, then it's pretty sad that he's continuing to act this way.

I'm going to take the bait and say that I don't believe for a minute that you have the civil capacity to hold an actual job. In all my interactions with you, you've been insanely schizophrenic. That comment just proves how much of a materialistic shit you are, too.

And if you moved on... why are you still here, pestering us about this mod?

Well that doesn't solve his problem though, it just creates one more step for new players to do when the links should be working to begin with. I'd make an account and mess around with the page and try to revert some links but it's after midnight where I live and I'm tired. lol

Don't ask, Stupid Mario Brothers is a YouTube series that I love to watch, and most likely you probably read my username as "SuperMarioBros1Fan" at some point. Yes I get that question a lot since this isn't the only account with this name. ::)

Took me a while to make a move, but today I finally tried to do something about it. I didn't know how to write in the proper wiki syntax so I had to study that first. I did some initial testing with the "PP7" page at first (I didn't first know about the "Playground" page where you can test the syntax, sorry for that).

If you take a look at the "Weapons" --> "PP7" page, you will see what I could come up with in a couple of hours. Nothing special, just a more readable page, although not as nice-looking (aestetic-wise) as the original page before its code got broken. All weapon data and descriptions are there as they were before, I didn't make any changes to them. Some links I removed (leading to the PKing Soup achievements, pages that don't even exist anymore), as well as some old code that became broken at some point (why the code got broken in the first place beats me).

If this work is to be continued, the pictures of the weapons are needed. Some of the pictures, like the one with the two PP7 pistols I used, are found here: http://www.moddb.com/mods/goldeneye-source/images/pp7#imagebox. However, not all weapon images are found there, but I recognize that many of the colored weapon images used to be used in the weapon data pages. In fact, images for most of the weapons aren't there. I would need someone to provide me with links to all weapon images if I am to update all the weapon pages.

If I'm gonna do the updating work, I will be focusing to get the data out there, and not focus too much on the aestetic part (how the table boundaries should look like etc.), as I'm not that good with the wiki coding (yet).

Good work man. It's a painfully slow work, but very important.
