New site: WarCraft3 wiki

PureOwnage

Minecraft Server OP, Inactive.
Added a lot of abbreviations like WE, TFT, WC, OE
You should fix up your grammar a bit though such as:

A abbreviation of The Frozen Throne
An abbreviation of The Frozen Throne

Good job though. :thup:

Can some one rename "player nmumbers" to "Player Numbers"?

I'm finally starting to iron down some of the rouge edges on the wiki.

First is the new jass tags. Check out http://wiki.thehelper.net/wc3/jass/common.j/ConvertRace (hover over ConvertRace to see them in action, if you have javascript...). It pulls the documentation from the wiki pages which therefore has to be in a special format, press the edit button to see it. Only 3 natives are documented in this way so far...
This jass tag version will eventually, eg when I know that it performs ok, come to the forums too so it might be of interest to check it out even if you don't plan to visit the wiki.

Second is an annoying issue with wiki subpages which some users discovered right away when we (read I) changed from a flat structure to a hierarchical one. [[jass/common.j/GetLocalPlayer]] produced jass/common.j/ConvertRace instead of ConvertRace. This is being fixed atm. Check out my page for progress.

Last is trying to get some kind of the design on the wiki. I'm currently in the design phase (read: I tried to make something then realized that my designer skills sucks) and are trying to recruit Romek.
Note to Romek: Consider this the payback for forcing me to do the jass tags :D

My HS swim team season is over, so I can help you if necessary. :p
(Though I am no where as good as Romek)

That's awesome. Makes reading things a bit easer.

Why is your rep disabled? Was it getting so high that it might overflow :D.

I may start working on it latter, But I noticed something.

Searching for "ability" brings you to the page that refers to it in JASS.

Shouldn't there be a Page for Abilities in general?

Same with JASS. It's just a portal. I think it needs a small introduction or something.

Heavy is credit to team!
wikis only really work if all wiki-people from one subjects are on the same wiki. Sadly there are about a quadrillion wc3 wikis, so I doubt your wiki will get very far.

Also, it's not on the first or second page if you Google "wc3 wiki".

I don't think Phyrex and the others are making this to get more visitors to our site, its to help the visitors and members already here.

This post might give you some insight on what short term goal I have for the wiki: http://www.thehelper.net/forums/showpost.php?p=1172685&postcount=53
Being a wiki, others might have other ideas that they push for but I would be pretty content if it "just" became a documentation platform for us here at thehelper.

Edit: A similar thing for the GUI tag is also WIP btw ^^

Requesting information to be written on the [ljass]GetSpellTargetX[/ljass]/[ljass]GetSpellTargetY[/ljass] about them being introduced in patch 1.24. Also requesting information to be written on the [ljass]UnitAlive[/ljass] native not being in common.j (I believe), but being usable in code once declared (in vJass).
 
General chit-chat
Help Users
  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    They aren't cutting my responsibilities or interjecting in my management abilities or anything, it's just stupid shit that comes up. And they don't exactly have people lining up for my job, there's not that many people applying for the positions I hire
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, whatever. Thanks for listening guys
  • jonas jonas:
    Sure :) Let us know how it ends
  • Varine Varine:
    All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
  • Varine Varine:
    Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years

  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Best of luck Varine!
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I just gotten myself an offer to work in China. The pay quadruples my current one. Damn.... Not really ready to start a new life there in China.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have heard that they pay pretty good to English teachers in China - you would be an expat
  • jonas jonas:
    Cool, what kind of job?
  • Accname Accname:
    I would be careful with jobs in China. They can be hit and miss depending on where in China you go. Places like hong kong / Shengzen / Beijing can be neat. Other places not so much.
  • Accname Accname:
    I would recommend searching for some first person experiences for the city you got the offer in. Especially now when the political situation in China is deteriorating.
  • jonas jonas:
    Accname, long time no see
  • jonas jonas:
    What have you been up to
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hey Accname, welcome back.
  • Accname Accname:
    Not much. Working in the Renewable Energy Sector as an IT Consultant. Its okay, but I think I preferred working at the university. It was more relaxed and you met all kinds of crazy people there.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    And I signed the contract already. I guess there's no turning back....
  • jonas jonas:
    @Accname how many hours do you work? I heard in some sectors IT consultants rack up insane hours
  • jonas jonas:
    @vypur85 sounds nice, have fun : )
  • Accname Accname:
    I am supposed to work 40 hrs a week, but I can work more if I like and I will be paid for those hours (as long as I don't go too far, there are laws and company policies, etc)
  • Accname Accname:
    In practice its basically work as much as you like, as long as the job gets done in time.
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, my job is like that as well... that usually means I have a few 70-80 hours weeks a year, and lots of 20 hours weeks...
  • jonas jonas:
    a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
  • jonas jonas:
    now I'll have next week off to make up for overtime :p and I'll play some good old gothic 2
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Hope you are enjoying that gothic 2~
