  • Hello, I was wondering if you wanted to join our (this wikis) Discord server, I know you haven't been active here lately and you may already know about it, but I thought I'd send an invite incase you were interested.

    https://discordapp.com/invite/F6v9RJ

    • Hey there, thanks for the invite. I don't really have a regular-use account there, but I'll definitely consider it in the future. ;)

  • Hello, I know you haven't edited here in awhile, but I'm just checking and see who is still active on other wikis.

    • Hey there, hope things are going well on here.

      I'm still active elsewhere from time to time, though definitely not as much as I used to be in general.

    • I honestly didn't expect a response so soon. Things are going well, I have had some help from someone recently which is useful. I was just messaging a few people and seeing who is still active.

        Loading editor
    • That's good. I'd offer some additional help, but I can't promise I'd be around often enough to make a significant impact. Was there anything major that still needed to be done (at least, until the remake is finally released)?

        Loading editor
    • Not really, there are a few audio logs that still need to be added (SHODAN and Polito) and a few other things here and there, but other than that I don't think so.

  • The paper logs in SS1 are an interesting curiosity and there's enough of them to warrant their own list, and I wondered if they should have their own infobox as well. Thoughts?

      Loading editor
    • We already have one, actually. See Engineer's Report (Wong) for an example. I've also moved the "Paper Logs" article to its appropriate category page (which oddly enough hadn't been created yet).

      Oh, and as a side note, you don't have to copy the entire stub template to use it. Simply type "Stub" (without quotations and with the double brackets), and it will appear.

  • Just tried to add possible loot to some SS1 enemies and noticed the template doesn't have the 'loot' bit, I don't have edit permissions and frankly not sure I know how to add them. Can we get this ability added so the SS1 enemy infoboxes can show possible loot like the SS2 enemies?

    • What counts as 'oversized and skewed'?

        Loading editor
    • Essentially, anything that's not its original size or of poor quality. The sprites are actually a lot smaller than the ones you recently uploaded, which conflicts with the rest of the images in that pool. It's a matter of consistency as well.

      The only other thing I would mention would be that when uploading in game screenshots, make sure that the interface is not shown in it (check out the SS level articles for some examples).

  • Thank you for all the effort you put into the System Shock wiki. As a fan for over 15 years I appreciate it very much.

    • Huh, never noticed that, I'll have to check on my next playthrough. I love how there's always something new to discover each time you play one of these games.

    • Isn't it though? That's half of the appeal of this game. And I only found it in the first place because of being an old-school gamer where if you didn't click on EVERYTHING you got stuck in the first ten minutes.

  • I was playing ss recently and was wondering if you wanted to add the messages that you get outside of E-mails (such as "step right into my trap little hacker").

      Loading editor
    • Sure, that would be okay. Best to put all of those on a single page though. Like "Direct Messages" or something. Does the second game have those as well? I cant recall.

        Loading editor
    • Yes, remember all of the "cybernetic module" messages?

        Loading editor
    • Ah yes, for some reason I thought those were emails (glad that's not the case though, as making articles for each of them would be redundant). XD

  • Hey I haven't been on here in awhile but I was playing the demo and wondering if someone should put pictures for some of the things in the demo on here. Since it's pre-alpha there's a chance what's there might change, but I was just curious as to what you wanted to do.

    • The demo content doesn't appear much different from the pre-release screenshots we already have, but you may add a couple more if you wish. No more than necessary, if possible.

        Loading editor
    • Ah sorry, I thought you meant you'd just be uploading more screenshots of the gameplay itself, not specific items/enemies. No worries though, we can keep what you have for now (though I deleted the two weapon images since we already have 2 that show them much clearer in the pre-release footage).

      Right now, I've been trying to get in contact with another admin on here, who hasn't been active since I last spoke to him a few months ago. I was hoping to create a better tabber system so we could separate the classic and remastered content more efficiently on the same article without having to create separate ones. Until we have a better way of implementing that, I'd prefer we keep all remastered images off of the articles.

    • Gonna leave this thread intact due to the information in my previous post still being very relevant (for now).

  • Hello. I am a staff member of Wikia and part of what I do includes creating new communities for Kickstarter funded games that do not currently have a community. Will Shodanpedia be covering the System Shock reboot by Nightdive Studios? The Kickstarter funding was successful. 

    Thanks

    • Hello.

      Right now we've got an article created for the game itself, but will be holding off on going beyond that until it's released. I've spoken with another admin on here about creating a template to divide certain articles into 2 sections, so we don't have to mix information with the classic's content or create a separate article for an existing topic.

    • I am glad the game will have a home here. Your quick response is very much appreciated. Thank you!

  • Hello, glad to see someone is putting some heavy work on this wiki - god knows it needs it.

    Can you check my comment on the front page talk page and see what you think regarding that? I would love to return to help with the wiki now that there's some actual hope and interest around it and I'm particularly better at making templates and structure and design and the like (with CSS).

    Thanks

    • Hey there, nice to see the return of another admin. ;)

      Regarding the change to the main page, are you referring to this? I remember stumbling upon this on a standalone sandbox page (I think), but I cannot seem to find it again.

      It looks like the reversion took place before I joined this wiki, but I actually really like it, and think it would be very much preferable to what we currently have as the main page. We could set that up asap if you'd like, or wait til the appropriate icons are made for the contents boxes.

      And hey, I'd definitely appreciate the help. I've been trying to get all articles and info/navboxes properly organized and structured since i got here, but I still have much to do and am not always active.

    • Yeah, that's the one. You probably saw it on the sandbox I made to test (http://shodan.wikia.com/wiki/Sandbox:SHODANpedia_-_The_System_Shock_Wiki/Sandbox)

      I'm not sure why it was reverted. Personally I think it looks much neater. Naturally it'd also need to be updated a little bit to fix it up for SS3 and generally to get the icons put in. I think it would be a better idea to wait until the nice icons are there to make it work better.

      Happy to help. There's always more to do (At one point I started uploading all of the audio logs until I got bored...) but I hope we can make it a great wiki!

      Thanks, »Chartax« talk 12:16, July 12, 2016 (UTC)

    • Yes, there it is. I was afraid something had happened to it.

      And sure, we can hold off on it for now. With the Remaster and SS3 in the works, I'm unsure as to the potential influx of new contributors here. Feel free to resume operations, and I'll contribute when I can. ;)
