What's the rules regarding this now? I might lift the flavour text from the old wiki and stick it on the Nexus Clash wiki - seems a shame to lose all that work.

I say do it. I'm ignoring flavor because I like bland, tasteless information.

Just put whatever you want as the flavour texts. Bruce Lee quotes, anything. Apparently in the NW days it was some sort of democracy?!

Yup. Everyone wrote small stories with certain restrictions (less than 200 words, no names, no trenchcoating etc.) and you voted on it. I've got a couple texts saved, so I'll stick 'em up Smile

I'm pretty sure Tek will show up later so say this, but from what I understand, they're forbidden.

The old texts often didn't describe the skill accurately, nor the votes be based off anything but popularity. I've begged Tek to allow them, but the staff as a whole are pretty anti-flavour text from what I understand.

You may want to hold off on adding more Mini, until a staff says yes or no to you adding. Otherwise, your effort will be deleted Sad

I re-opened the discussion with the mod team. We'd really rather not open the old NW wiki fiction can of worms again. I've removed the fiction from the wiki, and deleted the template and the category, although the latter might have been a tad excessive.





Who did all the Bruce Lee quotes?



That said, the rule as it stands is that only a mod should be adding fiction to the wiki if it ever happens. We're not against the idea of people writing cool stories that involve certain skills, but let us chose if they should go on the wiki or not.

Saulres did those if I recall correctly.

You may want to plead your innocence if I'm making a false accusation.

Guess we could always do the democracy thing again. Make a subforum, a short time for people to write out a short description, then vote on it.

Instead of flavour text , which can often be misleading maybe we could have more experienced players explaining the uses and usefulness of certain skills. Something like how Elite Attack should be chosen always if possible as their are no down sides to it all but Boxing is often unneeded even in HtH builds. Obviously slightly more indepth. Even NW vets could probably find explanations of the uses of the new or tweaked skills very helpful.

Making things more clear for new players is more needed for the games health than a chance for bad writers to show just how bad they are.

Laughing

Your memory is faulty.

I've made like 3 changes to the wiki, none of them flavor text.

Seems a shame that there's so much opposition to this - the game could use a little more flavour in my opinion, especially on the wiki, but it seems I have little support on this one.

I said we're not doing the vote thing.

If it didn't work out in NW with mod support, what makes you think it will work better here with mod opposition?


Hope?

Well, screw the wiki then. IC discussion could always use more stories...

Which is what I just said/implied. People *do* read what you post, you know.
