Greetings. The ArcEmu wiki has been updated with many new features (yet again)! It is now on the same version as Mediawiki is, with many of the same extensions and looks.

You may all notice the new article editor from Wikipedia, it is a very nice fully featured editor that can help even a novice properly use wiki markup. Included with it for browsers that don't have the required javascript, is a text/button based version that highlights some of the main features of wikimarkup that new editors should know.

You can all poke and prod it here ArcEmu-Wiki Testing If it doesn't display correctly, you need a valid UserAgent in your browser. (Should support all mainstream browsers)

Commit style log for those interested.
Wiki updated to latest mediawiki rev. http://arcemu.org/wiki/Special:Version
Entire wiki database updated to latest structures & maintenance ran (Nothing to cleanup manually this time ;_; beautiful)
Full Featured editor installed.
Special character/formatting insert form added.
All extensions updated.
Mediawiki theme customizations imported.
Checked and rechecked expanding/collapsing code.
Added expanding/collapsing menus to the left sidebar.
SimpleAntiSpam added (Prevents bots from being able to edit the wiki, even though it is heavily locked down already to their edits)
Recaptcha switched out for Confirmedit (forced, changes in MW) - You will never see another recaptcha request during editing.


Oh and for peeps doing documenting, if you want to save some typing instead of typing: <source lang='stuff'> everywhere, just use <source> it defaults to Lua (since thats the most popular thing on the wiki).

A new developer page has been added to the wiki for team members, and those curious and looking for documentation. You may find it here at the Developer Entry over time this page should become filled with documentation relating to the client, packets, scripting, and whatever else we want to put somewhere for others to read that would only confuse the general public.

Hi

I wrote a lot of staff in different Wikis. But it doesn't look for me as if this wiki edition would be up to date.

But anyway, what I really don't understand is why most of the pages are locked for editing. This makes for me no sense in a community project.

Hope your feedback. :) Thanks in advance.

They are locked because of vandalism.
There are lots of people who mess up the wiki on purpose, not to mention that we have bot attacks quite often that do the same.

Well, for such things there are a lot of different security options you could use. Otherwise other websites also never could offer a public Wiki. Wiki best stays alive if users can edit it, imho. :)

Anyway, I will send you a PM.

I agree.
Currently there are bots adverting while all old accounts are blocked.
