Forums: Index > General > The Sonic wiki needs a rewrite badly!

Seriously. This wiki needs a rewrite. Some things in here shouldn't even be in here. So here is what I think you should do.

  • Get a better restaff team who actually read the pages made here.
  • Force people to log in to make changes. registering makes eerybody mad, I should know.


I read most of the edits. I do not know everything, so I'm not always sure if its legit. I make sure to reverse the bad, incorrect things. As this Wiki grows, we will need more admins to help clean up.
About the incorrect stuff... You can thank Sonicadventure for that. He created a fanfic, but passed it off as legit, and edit almost every page possible to include info about his fanfic. It made me extremely angry, and I was confused when I first saw it... I bet others are too.
About registering, I'm not sure how to do that. I could ask Angela to add in that feature, if it exists, and yes, it is a good idea.
I have some ideas too about how to fix the Wiki...
  1. Make sure you site all pages from Wikipedia, using {{enWP|"Wikipedia article name}}.
  2. On the front page, there is a link to a Things needing to be done page. Try doing some of the stuff there.
  3. Keep on the lookout for incorrect things, and fix if necessary.
  4. Always tell me if you need a page deleted. I get email notifications, and I check them when I get home every day, so I can go about deleting pages then.
Thanks for making this topic, this should really motivate users to edit and look around. Navij11Talk 21:33, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Ok, just edited Sonic Advance 2 to a point where it's actually in 3rd person. God, who wrote that crap? Its not even in the Wiki handbook!

We got some work to do.--Koncho 17:48, 7 November 2007 (UTC)Miles

Thank you for your help, however please don't come in and blast everything. There have been very few serious editors here over the course of this wikis lifetime, so it's true it's not great. That's why we need you and others to help. Also, Wikia rules (which are pretty much Wikipedia rules) still apply here. Yes, that would include to personal attacks, flaming, etc. We need construction, not more destruction. FerralMoonrender 01:10, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

I have some info, but putting it up will take time I don't have and because of it, I might be thought of as trying to possess the Wiki.Enzeru 16:18, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Feel free to do whatever you want. I'm really busy with stuff in real life, so I don't have time to do much more than some minor moderation/cleaning. Any info is appreciated! :) Navij11Talk 19:30, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
