Many players have put their alts into the Wiki ranging from ****ty ones like…

http://forumwarz.com/spoilers/wiki/W00w00

http://forumwarz.com/spoilers/wiki/Veer

http://forumwarz.com/spoilers/wiki/Brer_Bandit

to ones that some effort went into such as the alt of our mod SUX2BU…

Evil Trout: “I personally don’t care if people make useless wiki pages, as long as they don’t get in the way of the real information people need”

“the most important part of the wiki is to help out new players, and to provide information about fwz when needed”

But how do you feel about it?

This ranks high on my list of “things that I don’t care about since I don’t think they affect the game to any real degree.”

Full disclosure: my name’s in the Wiki.

More full disclosure: I didn’t put it there.

Why does it matter if they are alts?

I think player entries on the wiki are great. If you don’t like them then you don’t have to read them, you know. I can’t see any negatives to it at all.

There is a negative other then the quality issue. You need exact spelling to jump to an entry which is hard if you are unsure of exactly what you are looking for. So checking the full list is often needed. The more junk entries there are the longer that list gets. Perhaps if alts were removed from that list and given a separate category so new players don’t think that they are NPCs.

A second category isn’t a bad idea.

I SHOULD POST MORE BUT I DON'T BECAUSE YOU'RE ALL REALLY LAME

My wiki was lovingly made by a man named Ortega, don’t any of you dare touch it.

Also, I don’t think it really matters.

Edit: Useless wiki pages that is. The more the better, even.

AAA++++!!! WOULD BUY AGAIN!!!

There’s some real crap in there, though. Do we need a wiki entry on KoL? Or adventurequest? Or losers that I will not even name here, lest they get the attention they so crave? I don’t see why. Vandalising is bannable, but what is vandalising if it isn’t posting ****ty vanity pages even your mom wouldn’t care to read? I’d say throw out the garbage.

Yes. I don’t see why not.

Also my mom thought my wiki page was beautiful.
