So, I've noticed that despite a wide call for a Wiki-based database for the game, there's not much activity on it. So, I'm just wondering what's up. Do you have questions, or concerns? I mean, we put it in for you guys to use. :p

Last night, one person indicated that they didn't really like doing bios. I can understand that... but there are other things you can do. So, what's the issue, guys?

Yeah, we've got something like that in the works. But in the meantime, we do have a character template. :)

Well, maybe if the factions' bios were made it would be easier.

Like the Empire had done this, or the Rebels have done that, or the Empire is run by them, etc. Postin' a like to this would make it easier to write a bio.

Likely informative overview articles on each with a factional history as well (a la the Galactic Empire article on Wookieepedia).

I'll see what I can do about getting an official government template set up. That said, I'm not chronicling 23 years of canon Empire and 6 years of canon Rebel history that didn't change. It'll mostly cover the changes since Endor. :p

Look up at the big bar that says HOME FORUMS HOLONET TOOLS ABOUT with a blue background at the top of the page. The wiki is hidden under the holonet option. AKA, click 'Holonet.' Don't worry, I had trouble finding it, too.

I thought it was some fancy name for FAQ or something that I'd never look at. :P

I'm not sure if either of you were around in early-VII, when the Holonet wiki was first proposed.

I don't think Lazer was, since I joined September of '05 and told him he should come check this place out.

It's been proposed a few times I think, I just didn't know the name.

And for the life of me now, I can't remember how long I've been in this game :?

(On a side note, you guys changed the emoticons! Gah, no wonder I look like an idiot for just typing :huh: everywhere! :p)

That sentence really made me think, honestly. We've been going for quite a long time. Four years of activity? Congratulations, VII/I.

How many ingame years have passed? That's what really confuses me.

I've always assumed this series was realtime.

We had a one year jump between VII and VIII. The game started in very late 9 ABY, and it's now 16 ABY.

Man, it's been the same year since I started, last I checked. I think VIII takes place on one, really long day. :P

If I had the energy to quote that, I would.

But yeah, every new year we have that pay hike thing, so I figured it must have been relatively real time.
