So everyone over on another thread wanted a Wikia for tutorials, ect...

Well,
Here you go. http://haloce3.wikia.com/

If anyone has some cool designs or something to help spice up the front page, let me know. Otherwise the best thing to do is contribute to adding: tutorials, information on big things related to CE, information on projects, ects.

At the moment it's only for registered wikia users to prevent trolls. If you want this changed, let me know.

Some sample pages you can look at to get started:
Maps: http://haloce3.wikia.com/wiki/Takedown:_The_Introduction
Tutorials: http://haloce3.wikia.com/wiki/Aether

Just letting you know you've been adding categories, not pages, which is fine if you plan to add a lot of detailed pages, but I think you might be mistaking categories for pages.

I don't think there is a profanity filter, but you probably should keep that out.

Information on other users would be very subjective and would easily lead to no good.

unless they're self written and moderated by Dratt (or his chosen delegates) for accuracy. Should only be for notable members of the community and their contributions (ie Dratt, Bullet, Jesse, Kirby, Masterz, SS, Gravemind, Elijah) and what they've contributed

I was thinking this earlier too. I don't want someone to just go in and delete everything or replace random unnoticeable words with junk.

Since it's Matt's site, he can decide.

As said, it's members only atm. If it becomes bad then sure I can make it certain people only but I'll leave it open for the moment and hope people are only there to contribute. Ban those who get in the way and restore from history anything they change.

Naming semantics. Do they really matter that much? Brand evolution is a thing too bruh.

I disagree with your opinion of how instructions need not be crowd edited. All crowd edits with genuinely good intentions would ultimately only benefit the reader by adding more knowledge for consideration would it not? I can't see how that would be a bad thing.

I haven't done any backend work for wikia, so I wouldn't know, but you still haven't given specifics on your experience.

The purpose as I understand it is to combine all knowledge accumulated over the years into one easily accessible database (that has no distracting music might I add). From strictly a user's standpoint, I think wikia is apt for the task.

I dislike Wikia and advise against using wiki software for the purposes implied. I think wiki software is not the proper tool. I have used wiki software for such purposes and I speak from experience; I have given due consideration and tried testing, so believe my statements.

Instead, I advocate a static design such as my http://halo.galaxyverge.com web site. (Be warned that taking content from my web site and putting it on said Wikia site will be considered an act of plagiarism and public disrespect because of what I have just written in the above paragraph.)

Consider: Are you going to include sources such as IGN Presents The History of Halo which the Wikipedia article cites? Or are you going to make this Wikia site just content presented by the Halo Maps Forum community members?
Edited by sparky on May 13, 2016 at 09:41 AM

Branding this wiki site as "CE3" is inappropriate. On the CE3 web site, it describes CE3 as:

Quote: What is CE3?

CE3 is the brand of online events and shows created by MattDratt and Slow Bullet (with other crew members joining us throughout the years). Our main shows consist of the HaloMaps Update, CE3 Live, and Server Side (Coming soon).


CE3 as described does not match the intents and purposes of an informative guide regarding how to make maps. But neither does sharing map files. So either revise the vision for CE3 or don't brand "CE3" within the Wikia site you're making.
Edited by sparky on May 13, 2016 at 09:47 AM


oh lol give them a break man, they quickly responded to a community request and your scrutinizing them because it says CE3 on it? what does it even matter? its not like they are making money from it or something else either.

Your website is pretty terrible in design and looks like a giant wall of text. A "static" website is never a great idea when trying to present large volumes of information like this. Wikia might not be the greatest thing ever, but it quickly lets multiple people set up information in a comprehensive manner and allows a wide range of people to access the information, which is exactly what is needed here. It has a table of contents, a search feature, and more...

From what I can see, this Wikia site is about CE3. I mod and I have nothing to do with CE3. Therefore, I am excluded from the audience of this web site.


Other variants of halo ce were already taken. Don't use the site if you don't like it.

The phrase "et cetera" is abbreviated as "etc.".


If this was wikia you could fix this for me.

...but you would reject my revision just like you reject it on this forum. Same person, same rejection. Software does not change the user.


Why would I reject a change from ect to etc when the latter is correct?

I am not obligated to share the anecdotal accounts of my experiences, but only the considered conclusions. If you honestly want to read long paragraphs in great detail, contact and talk with people who have started Wikia pages.

Ironic coming from a guy always writes pages of text. I ask you to give support to your opinion and now you refuse? Interesting.

Do you really want all our contributions to seed ads?

There are ads here on Halomaps that we are already subjected to. I cannot imagine that a few more ads will be a huge factor for most of us.

Ads keep the sites you love and enjoy free for your unlimited personal use.

The more people disable ads, the more obtrusive they get and the closer we get to pay4use models proliferating.

But hey, who cares. I don't know about you, but I've got a steady paycheck.

Maybe you don't understand how the internet works. As longs as there are ads of any sort, there will always be a way to block them.

If you feel like a better person for enduring ads then please continue to. It's sheeple like you that ensure people like me don't have to worry about webmasters switching up how they do ads. (Again, that still wouldn't prevent us from blocking their ads.)


Okay have you ever heard of this small indie studio called Roosterteeth? Most of their revenue comes from ads. Their sponsors and merchandise realistically produce only a small amount relative to their ad revenue. Ads keep companies afloat and alive.
