Discussion Jass Wiki

SineCosine

I'm still looking for my Tangent
So..

Who moderates the stuff there?
Is there a way to makes things a little easier to navigate? o.0

Anyone interested in filling up that natives list with juicy info.? :thup:

http://wiki.thehelper.net/Main_Page

I've already made it easier to access the Jass natives page.
I added:
For a list of Jass natives that already have an article, please click here.
And made the Jass natives page easier to navigate by adding:
Listing of all natives in WarCraft 3 TFT.

Natives from A-F

Natives from F-G

Natives from G-L

Natives from L-S

Natives from S-U

Natives from U-R
Those are links that you click xD

And I've done this: http://wiki.thehelper.net/wc3/jass/common.j/Rad2Deg
And.. This: http://wiki.thehelper.net/wc3/jass/common.j/SetUnitAbilityLevel

I think ToolTipError modified the SetUnitAbilityLevel page to look nicer :D
So..
Who moderates this stuff?

> Who moderates this stuff?
Everyone who is willing to. I guess that's kinda like the spirit of wikis. :p

Though methinks phyrex1an is the one who has the final say on things there.

Phyre 'owns' the project, that is to say it's his brainchild and he mainly moderates it.

Me, Artificial, and him, are the primary users, though I have seen Lyerae and Romek a few times in talk pages and such.

edit: Oh, and it's not a 'JASS' wiki, since it will eventually contain everything about WC3 Editing, and then SC2.
 

Lyerae

I keep popping up on this site from time to time.
I only ever edit when I see any spelling/gramamr errors, which I don't seem to find often, or when I can phrase something better than someone else had (to make it easier).

:D

> What's The Helper's policy on taking stuff from other fan sites?

I think it should be okay, as long as you credit the original author, as well as link to the original post.
However, you should still ask the authors permission.

Nah, you don't need to ask for permission, it's a wiki.

Then using it is at your own discretion, and what you find morally right.

There is no wiki policy on citation yet.

Like I said, I agree you should credit, but this is not a moral question, it's a "Do I need to credit the author to put this on a wiki" question.

"Do I need to credit the author to put this on a wiki"
By law you need to have the authors permission to distribute his work. Depending on the license of the content in question you need to ask for this permission. Furthermore, wiki content is released under by-nc-sa (unless otherwise specified, I'm uncertain however if we want other licenses on the wiki), so the author must agree for his content to be released under this, or a compatible, license.
That's how it is if you plan to "take stuff from other sites".

However, then there is also "basing stuff on other sites". We can't really expect everything on the wiki to be 100% original research, so using external sources as the foundation of articles is to be expected. Keep in mind though: 1) Citing the source is good. Both because it's polite to do so, but also because it adds context for readers (eg, a source generally contains more detailed information).
2) "Rewriting" a source generally is the same thing as copying it. We don't do any plagiarism checks on submitted content (who does anyway?) but please use common sense. Ask yourself: Would my teacher accept this?

  • The Helper The Helper:
    Back in the old days when I was getting a license people were getting them at 16 yrs old and many were getting hardships so they could get them earlier. Almost nobody did not drive when they were able. Nowadays though....
