    Default Official: Wiki Moderation and Management

    When Simutronics acquired the Krakiipedia, the wiki became an official source of documentation. While the wiki will remain player-driven, our GameMasters will also continue to correct outdated and erroneous information. This has been a work in progress, and we still need to make it more clear which articles are considered official.

    During the transition from the Krakiipedia to the GS Wiki, a number of players stood out and helped us with the overwhelming tasks of formatting and correcting the wiki. Many of these players became our first moderators of the wiki. These are the key people who helped shape the wiki for us and pushed for a style guide that we strive to use.

    Our lead moderator is currently Allereli. She has put in a vast number of hours and continues to uphold to the standards that were set forth. If you look at her contributions, you can quickly see the huge investment of her time and heavy amount of edits she has performed.

    I do realize everyone puts in a lot of effort into the wiki, especially when you spend a lot of time formatting and adding information. It is not a slight to anyone if one of our moderator steps in to either inform you of some needed formatting changes or to lock down a page until things get clarified. This is what they were set to uphold when they became a moderator for our wiki.

    One of the concerns that recently came up are when a moderator locks a page or reverts some information. Again we realize a lot of effort goes into these edits. Be mindful that if something is official documentation or an article was edited by a GameMaster, it's something that should get signed off on before making an edit. Using the Village Pump or the Discussion Tab at the top of each article is the best way to communicate an edit.

    We appreciate everything everyone does for our wiki. You all help make the GemStone IV community informed and keep documentation more easily to find.

    Sadly, a good portion of the "official documentation" is outright bullshit and doesn't even come close to informing the reader as to what really happened.

    Allereli is a control freak who has a superiority complex because of the wiki. I'll never contribute as long as she's a moderator.

    The only reason Wyrom had to create this post is to address the numerous complaints against her.

    Didn't want to post on your main PC handle?

    Either that, or welcome to the PC!

    Don't you find it odd that someone feels the need to hide their identity when posting a critical reply? Almost as if they feel they will be ostracized for doing so.

    Nah, just someone with some seriously thin skin (and no balls).

    I agree, Wyrom has been castrated by people with no balls.

    You are currently banished from Wehnimer's Landing.

    >ask clerk about citizen
    The clerk says, "Hrrrm, Mogonis, you do seem to be eligible for full citizenship. Just WRITE your name in the book if you wish to make it official."

    >write book
    You sign your name into the citizenship registration book, fully agreeing to the duties and privileges full citizenship provides you.

    The point is that he's a eunuch.
