Marine (and Alien) Wiki Page Write Up Push!

Post by Steelpoint » 22 Jun 2016, 13:07

I've been recently going over some of the Marine and Alien wiki pages and I've noticed how many of them are unfinished, have barely any information aside from useless walls of texts or are outright not even started (looking at you Maint Tech).

The wiki will oft be the first port of call for many newer players, and a good wiki can help at least some players understand what to do in a roll. People are oft four kinds of learners, some learn from doing, some learn from watching, some learn from being told but others learn from reading. The wiki should provide that service.

I've been expanding some of the wiki pages, most recently the Cargo Technician role.

I plan to eventually try and go over all the wiki pages, but I am but one person with one experience, and there's only so much one can do with such limited experience (as well as the fact rounds take two to three hours and as such you can't just load the game and try the roll for a short period) The more people who've played more roles, from the Corporate Liaison to the Researcher, could help offer some better insite into how the role is played.

Even if you literally just write down a jumble of text describing in no good detail how the role is played would be a big help, since I or others could take that info and make something of it.

Nevertheless any help anyone of you can provide to the job roles would go a long way.

Thank you.

I'll be doing any grammar checking.

I don't like cute things.

Good hunting.

I should note that I consider the heavily worked on Standard Marine wiki page to be the gold standard for how other Marine pages should be like, Cargo Technician is also a good runner up.

I've been making a significant number of changes to the Doctor page;

I'm not particularly amazing at making the page flavorful so if anyone wants to add some flavor, please be my guest.
