Deepworld Official Wiki & Codex Updates

I'm happy to announce that our Official Wiki is entering beta. We looked into a bunch of wiki software but they were all overblown and unappealing, so we decided to make our own simple & streamlined wiki software in the codex (much easier than making an MMO, believe you me! :D ).

The first wiki pages are now live at the codex:
http://deepworld-codex.herokuapp.com/pages

The Terrapus page is my attempt to show what a nicely filled out page would look like:
http://deepworld-codex.herokuapp.com/pages/terrapus

We will be giving select wiki access out to interested players, so please comment here if you're interested in helping out.

Also, we've added a list of guilds to the codex:

    Wow! This is awesome! Are the guilds dynamic? In other words, if I change my guild name or whatever, will it automatically update in the wiki?

    I raised a ticket for this earlier, but... Shrooms United is a ghost guild and needs to be purged.

    Yep, the codex uses the same database as the game.

    Oooh! Very nice! I would gladly aid in the wiki's expansion if you will have me.

    Definitely in @dmmagic - sounds like fun!

    I think the wiki could really take off and be a good "launch pad" for new players. I will definitely assist however I can. :)

    Bulbs will grow flowers in only temperate worlds? Arctic and Hell worlds are looking less and less worthy of crowns in comparison :|

    Or will the grow lamps aid in growth in other biomes?

    @mikelaurence plz say that you put cthulhu in the hell world backdrop because i think i saw him and well, the new site says that there are many references to it....

    I can't wait to finish up the Butler Bot entry so we can start pointing people to the wiki rather than answering the same questions over and over...

    I used to be a helper in the Deepworld Wiki (Wikipedia) so count me in !
  • PianoPiano Posts: 961Member
    I wouldn't mind helping at all.

    By the way, great job guys.
  • SirSlothSirSloth AmericuhPosts: 1,399Member
    Awesome, all of it is awesome!! I helped on the last wiki, so I'd love to be involved in this too!!
    Also, I was surprised to see my drawing in the Media section of the terrapus page!! Even though I didn't do a good job of drawing one and drew what looks like an ant....
    Oh yeah, how do you go about registering a "Home world" for a guild?
  • DaMorlockDaMorlock Posts: 3,641Member, Arbiter
    It looks amazing! If you're still giving out access, I would love to help with the wiki!

    Whichever world your guild obelisk is placed in is referred to as your "home world".
