Ladies and gentlemen, CMAC, and all the administrators of Episode VIII, are very proud to announce the launch of the new website!

It's taken a long time and tons of work to get everything working, but it's finally arrived. We hope you enjoy it.

Please use this thread to make us aware of any bugs or issues. Please note that right now, logins are not linked together. You must separately log into the main site to use the Issues tool, for instance. The username and password are the same. To use the Holonet, you must create a new account; the program will guide you through this process.

Now, the real work begins: restructuring the economy. New issues are currently not being accepted, but you can go to the Issues Tracker to see how the new tool works, and to view your existing issues. You will see new responses within that tool as we begin to re-evaluate the economy.

Thank you, everyone, for being so patient and contributing to the game to the point where we needed a new site to accommodate our growing needs. Remember, this site is still a work in progress; new rules to accommodate the layout, and new features (such as the Force system), are eventually going to be added. It's a great day, everybody, and I hope you enjoy it. :) Thank you again!

It's very pretty. And one of my characters is featured in the graphics! That made my day :)

Click the thing that says Holonet. Also, we do have a manual of style on the Wiki. I'd suggest checking that out before dabbling in anything. :p

Will we be penalized if we can't be bothered to make a bio for our character(s) on the wiki?

The penalty is such that you really should try. >_>

:p

There are help files. I've never done it before, either... that's why I bookmarked them. And then I found out there were a dozen other pages but mainly covering technical issues and such. :p

Cray would have a more complete list.

The best way to learn is to look at the example pages (for instance, the page I made for Nevin, listed on the main page). Infoboxes are pretty self explanatory. With images, you need to upload them through the "upload a file" button in the toolbox navbar. You can then include them like this: [[Image:Imagename.jpg]]

After about 10 minutes of wandering I finally found the wiki... now one question... how do you make a page? :oops:

EDIT: JK, I read the help page. :P

ATTENTION MINIONS--I mean... PLAYERS! :p

With the new site, and our termination of the guest forum (being the spambot-infested hive that it was) as well as the activation of the Holonet (the Wiki, for those of you getting used to the terminology)... we will be discontinuing the Galactic Archives forum. So please move all relevant IC information to the Holonet as soon as possible.

Once that is done, we will be DELETING the Archives forum. The Holonet is the repository for all game-related information from now on.
