Wiki Discussion / Videos on the Wiki
« on: September 23, 2011, 04:51:28 pm »
I propose that we imbed videos into the wiki. I don't think that having a url linking to Youtube at the bottom of the page is as effective or as visually pleasing. It also takes people off of the site which is not normally a plus.
Now I am ignorant to the technical challenges this may or may not present. Linking to a Youtube page does work and if serious time and effort is required to make embedded video become a reality then screw it, there are more important projects. But if it does not take much effort, I would highly recommend making videos embedded into the wiki. I wouldn't expect it to be too difficult but, again, what do I know?
Thoughts?

Project "Phoenix" / On the Origin of Wiki
« on: March 14, 2010, 03:39:18 pm »
So I was on my computer when I decided that should check up on the Wiki. So I did and I was thrilled with what I found. The Wiki looks great. More articles have popped up and the quality of the older ones have improved in many cases. That was the reason that we switched to a wiki and it looked like it was working great. Then I went to the homepage and realized that we have not yet replaced the main site with the wiki yet. Why we haven't done so is beyond me. So instead of mindlessly insisting that we should replace the main site with the wiki, allow me to justify my thinking.

1) The wiki is looking better then the main site at this point
     The wiki now has almost everything that the main site has and so much more. The wiki has many more articles and many of the smaller articles on the main site are better written and fuller on the wiki. I see no reason to hold that information back. The only things not on the wiki yet, as far as I can see, are the ItemDex and AttackDex. (oh, and the Interactive Tools) Now, both the Item and AttackDex were great when they were first made but now the ones on the main site are horribly outdated. So they should not be the reason to hold back upgrading.

2) The wiki's still in beta? So what, that never stopped Google.
     I know the wiki is still in beta but I see no information on what we need to accomplish to take the wiki out of beta. Also, if the wiki is still in beta, whats that make the main site? The main site was never "finished" or anything like that. I don't even know if the main site was ever out of beta. Also, so what if its a beta? As I said, that didn't stop Google. Several Google products are in beta and have been for years. All it means, for them anyway, is that the product works but if something goes wrong, oops. So even if were still in beta, we've got a product that is very presentable.

3) Stalling could lead to the demise of the site
     This one sounds kinda crazy but here me out. As of now we are putting all of our resources into the wiki. Updates upon the main site have ceased. The main site is what people see when they first encounter Glitch City. (in most cases anyway) They encounter it on Google or something and they look on the main site. With no new glitches and the old errors still there, less people will look at the site. The idea behind Casper is to draw more people into the site because there is more there for them to read. But if we only implement Casper on the wiki and no one sees it, I dare say it will have all been for not. Now I know that "the demise of the site" is a push, but it can't be healthy, so why do it? 


So that's rational for replacing the main site with the wiki in the near future. Oh, and by near future, I mean by the end of the month. All we need to do is have glitchcity.info redirect to glitchcity.info/wiki. Now that can't be to complicated to do.

So discuss but I would urge that action should be taken soon.   
 
Thanks for reading,
Zach

The Dumpster Out Back / Re: FREE PORN :D
« on: October 06, 2009, 06:43:28 pm »
Your back dude. Idk if your a jackass or if you were, I cant tell you how to run your life, so don't listen to yami man, it doesnt have to do anything with maturity, anyone can be a butthead/jackass if they simply choose to, you know, freewill. Im not trying to start s**t with you yami, Im just telling it how it is. It is his life and he has the power to make his own decisions, SO FOR FUCKS SAKE,YOU NEED TO STOP TELLING PEOPLE HOW TO ACT/BE TO HOWEVER YOU SEE FIT. Yuzi, your a chill dude, cool, and accepting, I hope your choice to change your ways brings you closer to your friends.[if you are wondering why Im here when I left, Im still waiting for the day I don't have to come here whenever Im bored] From a true friend, PAPA DOC
When we said that old feuds are done, we meant it. Last chance, stop trashing Yami. You dislike her, get over it and stop badmouthing her. No one wants to hear it. I don't care if your "trying to warn people" or "just telling the truth" or anything like that. If its true, then people will discover it for themself.

But, in other news, welcome back Yuzihax. You came back which is good and you managed to do it without flinging drama into every aspect of the fourms. Kudos. Good to have you back and by the way, your subject line was the only reason I read this thread in the first place. Nice move.

Project "Phoenix" / A question about the Wiki...
« on: September 05, 2009, 09:56:43 am »
Is there any way that we can embed video into the page instead of providing a link to a video at the bottom? Because I think imbeding the video into the web page just looks a lot better.

Also, on a side note, when is the wiki going to replace the main site? Because from what I see, the only thing left to do with the wiki is to give it a proper theme and were done. The pages look good. The last thing we want occurring is for this project to stall.

Pokémon GCL Version / First Town and Route One
« on: July 06, 2009, 06:45:55 pm »
Wow, its been months since we've had any discussion here let alone an update. So to prevent this project from falling into the archive, I created route one yesterday and today. That, along with the first town, is finished. So discuss. Also, if you want, you can edit the maps and add in your own changes. Hydrall and I will decide if were going to use them or not but your welcome to made additions. 

The town outdoors
The inside rooms
The Lab
Route 1

Hyrdrall created the entire first town with G/S/C tiles and I revamped them. I created route one from scratch.

Pokémon GCL Version / HM's
« on: May 08, 2009, 07:05:37 pm »
Here I have a proposed list of when you obtain and are able to use the games HM's. Vote in the poll if you think that the order is good. Also, these are only the normal HM's. If we end up adding out own, you would not need a gym badge for them but something else. So with out further ado, here is the proposed list.

Gym One: Rock Smash
Gym Two: Cut
Gym Three: Strength
Gym Four: Rock Climb(Changed)
Gym Five: Surf
Gym Six: Fly
Gym Seven: Dive
Gym Eight: Waterfall

Also here is the link to the game map for a reference. So just say what you think.


EDIT: List changed, your able to recast your vote.  Also, an idea by Gary that I think should be implemented:
Quote from: GARY 'M 9
Edit: Also, any main 8 HMs that we're not making up/making up can be HMs.  Any leftover main ones can be like SMs (Super Machines) which are reusable techniques that have Overworld effects that do not need a badge to be able to be used on the Overworld.

SMs:

Flash
Defog
Whirlpool

So here is a list of SM's that are possibility going to be added to the game:
Flash
Defog
Whirlpool
Sweet Scent
Headbutt

NOTE: No SM will be required to advance in the game, they would just be used for bonus achievements.
