Hey Shrev, it's been a while since I have been on this wiki, or any for that matter, been so busy with this school year so I thought I would drop by and give my salutations, now that the school year is basically over for me, I have time to work on this wiki, thanks so much for giving everyone this opportunity!
The reason why I am asking on this wiki is because there is something wrong with your message wall on the other wiki, I cant seem to type anything there.
I need help with Sly Cooper Issue Chapter 0
One of the headings called Macom vs Jojo, is all messed, and the wiki is not letting me correct anything on the page, I tried to bring everything back together, here is an example of why Its messed up.
Its almost that bad, I tryed to correct it but the page always messes up when I try to get the spacing of things in proper order.
So, as you and others probably know, this wiki has very few references. And of those that we do have, 90% of them refer to other pages on the wiki. Now, I know that videogames are harder to create references for, especially on an "in-universe wiki" such as this (as compared to Wikipedia, where everything is from a real world standpoint).
But I think that we can make some form of references work. Creating a page called "References" and then having / pages within it holding references such as an image of the game manual would work. That way, the references would lead to absolute proof. Anybody could say something on the Thieves in Time page like "Sly dies at the end" and the reference at the bottom being "The end of Thieves in Time," even though it's not true. Someone who was trying to spoil the game for themselves wouldn't know the difference between fake information such as that and real information unless they had read otherwise. Having an actual reference page such as "References/Thieves in Time" that has screenshots of the game and articles, videos, and scans of the manual (even though there is no manual, haha) would benefit our wiki in some way.
If you feel this is unnecessary or not worth the time, that's fine. It's just a suggestion, and would be quite a project that would require a lot of dedication from a lot of people.
While I do think your idea is good, I'm not sure I understand your way of implementing it. Having a pages strictly for references could easily become overflowed with images and content that might not be suitable references, and having a page solely for referencse is a bit extreme. I would like to be able to references images, however.
Also, there is a manual for Thieves in Time; it's a digital one which comes with the disk, not sure about the downloadable version.
I think it's better if references are left as citations within pages. Regarding your concern about false references being added, Teenbat, that is what we have editors for - to fix any incorrect information. However, I do agree that the way we currently reference can certainly be improved (they can be more specific, for one).
Referencing images sounds like a great idea. It would avoid any doubts of an image's authenticity by providing information about where exactly it came from.
Did you see the trailer for the Sly Cooper movie yet? The CG looks interesting, and they animate Sly's whiskers and Bentley's eyes, but Murray's neck is the weirdest thing there. If you haven't seen it, here's a link:
It's up. Only thing I'm worried about is the TM, because it looks like we (you) have trademarked the logo, which probably has some legal issues. :P Other than that, it looks great. Thanks for all your help Sly.
The banner looks good but the wordmark is meh; I'm not really liking the huge gaps on either side of the wordmark when it's put in the wordmark's location, and it's much too small. Shouldn't the wordmark be very noticable? And I personally just prefer the current one.
I don't know if my (or anyone else's) opinion is even needed but I figured I'd leave it anyways, disregard it if it's not.
Hey, I had a question: So, I have the PS2 version of Sly 2, but I lost the booklet that was inside all the way back in 2004 (ten years ago, holy smokes!), so I don't remember anything that was in it. Does it make mention of Carmelita's father or how she's apparently a fourth generation police officer? Because if it doesn't say it there, then I don't think it says it anywhere.
Just wondering because on her wiki page and in other places it says stuff like that. I know that the booklet talks about Neyla a bit, but that's about it. So if you happen to have the booklet on hand, I would appreciate the help.
I get emails for nearly everything about the SC Wiki because that's what my settings are, and I have an email notification thing for Chrome enabled/my phone bugs me about my email, hence I know what's happening by the minute..unless Wikia's servers aren't sending emails correctly :P
Well, whaddya know. In the Sly 2 manual, it says here that Carmelita is a "fourth generation cop"! Here's the full image. If you want the full manual, I scanned the whole manual into a PDF that I can send to you somehow.
