New Crowdfunding wiki is up

Posted by , 20 January 2013 at 1:07 pm UTC / 7990 views
Hi everyone I decided to do a wiki for Crowdfunded games instead of doing a page like our game sales page as that only needs to track "current" stuff so here's our new wiki for it!

This wiki is still a bit of a test as I have never admin'd a wiki before so please give me a hand with it and let's make it a valuable resource for anyone interested in Crowdfunding + Linux

Please give your suggestions and help out if you can. If anything the general layout needs a bit of love and I'm still learning so go ahead and edit

Hmm, anyone else think that Completed, Ongoing, and Failed should be split into three pages?

liamdawe 20 January 2013 at 5:32 pm UTC
It was originally but as Cheese thought it would be better to have as one page.

If you need any advice I am quite experienced with Wiki admin Liam.

If anyone has some spare time, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KickstarterGames is a great (but outdated) list.

We'll need a link to the Wiki added somewhere in the header.

As for the Wiki itself: Doesn't really need to be split into separate pages; a table of contents is fine too. However it all depends on what else(?) gets added to the Wiki. If its going to be only a net-linking list of crowdfunded Linux games then it might be a good idea to just replace the main page with it and add an alphabetical sorting system.

Also, tbh I am a tad worried that now we have both a game database and a game Wiki. I know they are meant for different things, but couldn't the same effect be achieved with just one of them? I don't think it's a good idea to stretch the site contents too much. Just sayin' :S

Yeah I have been pondering over the decision of moving the database over to the wiki, would make it far easier to maintain it!

The front page is now unprotected feel free to update as you see fit, it will be the database and crowdfunding wiki, main site as always for news and general articles.

liamdawe 20 January 2013 at 7:19 pm UTC
Although thinking on it wikipedia has a rather big database of games already so not sure if its worth it?

I've humbly added a 'Deadline' column to the Ongoing table, to easily spot the already finished fundings or the soon-to-end ones.

I used the YYYY/MM/DD format so the sorting works properly.
