Title: The WIKI is now public
Post by: Abwayax on March 28, 2010, 11:57:31 am
As of today, March 28, the Glitch City Laboratories Wiki is open to the public.

It wasn't closed, really, but now we've replaced the old site with it.

That's exciting to hear, I know I supported not releasing it early because of unfinished databases such as the AttackDex and the ItemDex but I've changed my opinion now. I wonder who our first contributor from elsewhere will be?

Edit: Shall we make some kind of incomplete tag for use on the GlitchDex? (As it does not have any articles for the different variations of Missingno. The page was generated by a WikiMedia extension though, would this be quite difficult?

Was that why the site was down?

This is good news. I have yet to see what has been done to the main 'Dexes, but I think that it was good to finally make it public because it already has so much more than the old site.

We gotta bring back the "WE DO HAVE FORUMS, JUST IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING", cuz the forums button is REALLY inconspicuous.

This is quite good news. I think glitchology might revive with a wiki rather than content regulated by staffed members.

...cuz the forums button is REALLY inconspicuous.

Agreed.

I doubt it.

Excellent! Now I have an audience to motivate me to enforce the principles of Grammar Nazism throughout the wiki.

I like the wiki, really informative and I like reading the articles there.

We are......Team Glitchy. After a year or so of developing, we have risen again from the ashes....

W00t! It's great to see that it's finally open!

That's good and all, but it makes it to where I can't access the site at times.

Sort of the same problem I have most days. If my parents PC is shut down, I am unable to return to Glitch City for a day or two. Yesterday I kept getting Firefox can not establish a connection to here, nor the main site. It's sort of nice how the wiki was made but did it have to be on my mother's birthday (28th of March)?

Absolutely coincidental. The site is getting LOADS of downtimes because of the new traffic the wiki is creating

I find it rather annoying, since I barely have anything else to do on other forums I go to as they're very dead, and I like to visit here now and again.

I think it cool that the site is getting a lot of hits due from the wiki
Title: Re: The WIKI is now public
Post by: Zach the Glitch Buster on April 26, 2010, 08:09:54 pm
Hits are great because it means people are reading and acquiring information. And, because its a wiki, the next cycle is that people contribute information to the wiki. The more people who know about and read the wiki, the more people who contribute. That gets us more information and that means the wiki is a success. 
High fives all around.

I was curious if anyone had any tips/pointers for the mew glitch. I've tried pretty hard, but can't seem to press the start menu fast enough before the trainer sees me for battle.

When you are out of the Gambler's sight range try walking up to him whilst holding the start button and then  release the button as soon as you enter his sight range. This should be a lot easier than relying on your reflexes.

Hope this helps.

Thats great lol, I think I can recall still having one in my signature on the PKMN.net site's forums, its a shame that many of the images that are referred to seem to have been deleted now though, or perhaps just moved.

They point to the wrong place.

Yes, I redirected the image to bulbagarden archives. The image never worked from when I made it. Does an archive of the old site remain?

Love the new site, looks very easy to navigate.
But, I think the giant "FORUMS" button should come back.

It replaced the old site on my bookmarks anyway but glad this awesome website wiki is now public. Now to add a link to the forum on the wiki. Only that the Discussion page on the main page of the wiki isn't working :(

We already have a link on the "Main Menu" section of the sidebar to the forums but it is quite small. I do agree though that we put up a big link to the forums, like the old site had.

The "discussion" section redirects you to the page "Talk:(Article name)", which is for submitting questions about the validity or reliable of what is shown, people should only post in it if there is a problem with the article, or if they have a feature request, so don't worry :).

The reason why you might be getting an error message when trying to access some parts of the site is because Adrian Malacoda reduced the site's PHP memory limit from 100MB to 32MB (1024*1024*32 bytes), see this topic http://forums.glitchcity.info/index.php/topic,6162.0.html
