As title says, we can't have everything as threads in this forum. It'll end up into a huge mess.

I'm thinking about a wiki type thing, with the following characteristics:
* it would be part of the board. You would be able to use your board account in it and all.
* it would have a main page listing all the pages by categories, or something.
* it would support Mediawiki type markup, but better. With stuff for easy tables and all. Perhaps also BBCode. (and it would parse newlines _normally_)
* it would have a revision system, like forum posts and ObjectDB entries. Noone wants little shitheads destroying stuff.

Suggestions? Ideas? Go nuts.

WikiXD is coming? YAY :D
(Well, if you want)

Also why reinvent the wheel and make Mediawiki markup? The BBCode we have now is flexible enough for using for a wiki and all. O.o

EDIT:
andposting tables
is easyas fuck now

Perhaps for people who are used to Mediawiki... idk...

I already have some code for detecting headings and building a section list, from my old lolWiki attempt. I could probably adapt that nicely :)

Lol but keep in mind people here will be more used to BBCode than to MediaWiki markup...

Also yeah, a way to mark titles is very needed. It's needed in posts too. The h1, h2, h3 tags are ugly. The post parser shits br's after them, resulting in weird vertical spacing.

Big title - h1


blah

Medium title - h2


blah

Small title - h3


blah

I think that most people will not even have used a wiki, except for looking up stuff. I dont think changing it will be that hard to adapt to, plus I might consider using it for something in the future.....
So I vote yes for creating it.

I might make the markup be a mix of everything, actually. BBCode, basic MediaWiki markup for those who are used to it... but for sure it'll support HTML. Not too many HTML either, we don't want fancy crap all over the place. The board's post filter, with MW markup additions, will be fine for this use.

A beta version of the wiki is up for testing.

Go nuts.

Suggestions for it are welcome.

When the software will be finished, it'll be linked in the menubar, too.

Why don't you just use mediawiki with a custom style? It is much better.

It's not worth it. It would be hard to make MediaWiki look like ABXD - and having different syntax could be confusing, and Arisotura wanted consistency.

Still, it should support publicly viewable revisions in case of vandalism or something.

The only MediaWiki syntax that should be implemented in my opinion is page link syntax. And possibly redirection.

Yeah right, let's use a wiki software that converts one linebreak into nothing, and two linebreaks into two linebreaks, making formatting a pain!

Oh also, if I used MediaWiki, everyone'd have to register to the wiki again. Basically it'd be like the old Kuribo64 with its blog. Or perhaps not, if MW's user data structure isn't too complex...


Page links will be implemented. And for redirects, I'm considering it. Viewable page history is also in the list of planned features.


Anyway, here's an example page made with this wiki system: RARC

I am also a member on cw-games.org and that mediawiki is linked to the forum so logging in isn't needed.

Yeah, linking works with mainstream forum software, but not stuff like ABXD. Or any Acmlmboard for that matter. See Jul and TCRF for instance.

Adapting MediaWiki to ABXD's authentication system, or vice versa, would also take a considerable amount of work.

I could try doing that, but well, that would require making plugins for MediaWiki (but this isn't huge problem), but why bother when ABXD will have wiki system.
