Improve navigation damn it .. And add a lore section

Post by Felkvir » 06 Jul 2015, 07:40

Currently you just go into the main page, hover over 'navigation' ...

>Recent changes

>Random Page

>Help


... We also don't have categories for anything.


And the 'lore' section will be needed, so players will actually KNOW what the universe is and what is what etc .. How to roleplay eventually. And before i add anything there, i need to know; are we just an additional universe with inspiration from the alien/AvP universe? Or are we DIRECTLY using them? From what i understand there is going to be nothing SS13 lore related at least ...

+1 To this, i think the layout of the main wiki page is pretty straight forward, however adding a lore page to the main page,
in the middle of Marines and Xenos would fill in the gaps i think.

adding little things like where each role fits into a squad and what to expect to be doing when you choose a specific role, would help stop meta if backed up by a strong lore page
over all +1

"I have no idea how it works, therefore it sucks."

The only pages the Wiki has are all on the main page, so categories and navigation aren't needed at the moment. After viewing a page, you can click on the top-left "Colonial Marines Wiki" title to return to the main page. That's called a "link".

Here's the Lore page for you: wiki/Lore

"I take a part of what someone says, and highlight it so it looks negative because that's what i noticed." or whatever. Still think there should be simpler navigation ONCE we get more pages/sections/actual categories for dumbasses like me, see?
