This is posted in both Noir and SoM.

In sleuth world we have a lot of websites giving advice, acting as web pages for players or agencies. This creates a very hard to navigate community, the wiki would take all that information and put into one website.
For those of you who don't know a wiki is a database that can be edited by anyone, but some measures are in place to stop vandals.
The wiki would allow for the most up to date Sleuth Encyclopedia and will give agencies and users to show what they've got beyond the little spaces we are allowed to edit on our profiles.

I would just like to now if there is an interest for this, before I go ahead and maybe set it up.

Breit:

We are basically talking about creating our own wikipedia for this game. But we definitely should create a page for wikipedia, we used to have one but it got deleted.

Now, another point of view would be the concerning the Admin's views. While we could have a wiki page, there needs to be a limitation of information we allow the public eye to see should they do a search on Sleuth.

Main reason being that we don't want to share too much information on the pages should the people want to figure things out in Sleuth themselves. I'm sure the Admin wouldn't want us to share too much information for those who haven't played the game before. It'd be like people taking a test they know the answers to. There's no brain work.

Well I think that's up to the person. Just like now, if you don't want help don't go onto sleuth tips or the other websites that offer tips. We could include spoiler warnings as well.

Yoyo! Based on your responses so far, looks like you've already made up your mind on what your going to do :)

Good Luck!

Actually no, I've just given responses so that everyone can be educated on both sides of the argument. This thread was meant to be a discussion. People have risen potential problems, I've given potential fixes. I'm still very much thinking about the effect that this would have on the current sleuth websites.

Yoyo, I do like the fact that you would have editing rights, that does qualm one of my biggest concerns. I think this is something you can make a go of. If you need any help I'm always willing, just let me know.

Well I obviously have a lot of experience with Wiki's so feel free to grab me anytime Yoyo.

As to the idea of people stealing information from one site as Jas mentions:

Here is what we at have on our website:
http://www.globalsleuthsyndicate.org/NewYork.asp

Compared to what Jas is using on her site:
http://www.freewebs.com/thebluepagoda/archvillains.htm


So I think you can interpret Jas' comments to actually mean: steal anything you want from any site without asking permisssion.

I noticed that as well Ran, but didn't wnat to point anything out as I didn't know if permission was issued or not, as most of you remember I asked before linking any agency on DPI's website and there were reasons that lil and me (mostly lil) redid all the pics for our villain hunt page, we wanted the work to be our own.

But that's really not what this thread is about so we shouldn't turn it into an all war against anyone. Yoyo, thinking about it, I think it's a great idea so you should go for it. Anyone that doesn't want to participate doesn't have to!

Sounds to me like a few of us don't mind and like the idea of Wiki for Sleuth. I hope that when you do get it started, you ask again in PM with those you'd like to get information from.

I agree Ctown, and you know that we have given permission to you and others.

Not trying to turn the thread into any sort of war, was just pointing out that those who were against sharing were already stealing.

I think the idea of a wiki is a good thing, but a separate one; not on wikipedia. Yoyo's idea is a good one and I think he can do a good job as an admin for it.
