The L4DNation Wiki is LIVE!

(http://www.l4dnation.com/w/skins/common/images/wiki.png) (http://www.l4dnation.com/wiki)

We've gotten the wiki themed and made live! We don't have a lot of information up yet or very good organization, but these will come! Thanks to femputer for the logo and Fig Newton for helping admin and set up the Wiki!

Remember to be respectful when editing the Wiki. We aren't going to hesitate to ban people who vandalize pages.

What are you waiting for? Check it out! (http://www.l4dnation.com/wiki/)

New L4DNation Forums Theme!

Femputer, Abyss, and myself have been working on updating the forum theme over the past few weeks. While not everything's polished and finished yet, but we're publishing it anyway. Thanks to Abyss for CSS help and the background. Most of the images are thanks to femputer.

If there are any other issues with the theme, feel free to submit them to the suggestions forum or this thread and we'll try to get around to them.

I'm an en.wikipedia nerd so if anyone wants to contribute, I can help with formatting and whatnot, or any other questions related to editing and etc. Of course a great way to contribute content is to copy it from other places, especially other wiki's because they usually have compatible licensing that allows copying. I've been pulling some stuff out of Tf2 wiki and adapting it for our purposes for example.

There's some editing help info on the wiki but it doesn't have external links for some reason

I started doing some of what shade started. It's now on the Tournaments page instead of the History page.

THIS (http://www.l4dnation.com/wiki/Polarity) is a really nice team page. Nice work Dawkins. Having the rosters on a per-tournament basis is really going to help.

Edit: Also we have our first ban. Take note (http://www.l4dnation.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Cheesy)!

Well, that contribs list doesn't even show the Rorek page you made that I deleted.

I added a Community Portal (http://www.l4dnation.com/wiki/L4DNation_Wiki:Community_portal) which lists some things we can all work on :)

Formatting definitely takes some getting used to.  A lot of basic HTML tags work as well.

<br> for a line break, <center></center> to center text.. those both worked for me.  Thanks for posting the external link info, that one is a bit convoluted.

Not sure exactly what you mean but it should be doable. Send me messages on steam since I'm not always watching this thread closely and I'll help out.

Feel free to add your channels and frag videos in the other sections

If you're doing something on a talk page or want to indicate you're working on something use ~~~~ to create a signature and timestamp.

When making a new article try to make sure it has at least one category. I'm starting some basic categories and listing them on the front page to help with this. The syntax is something like this, for example:

[[Category:Tournaments]]

Just put that anywhere on the page, but preferably at the very bottom. Also, categories can be subcategories of other categories, but we probably don't have enough articles yet to make that really necessary.
