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.

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

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I really do not want to move to California otherwise I might consider it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah California is not anywhere you really want to live
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is why I did not take the job Blizzard offered me back in the day, there is no way I could have moved my family there on what they were offering, not even close and that was like 20 years ago
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah they wanted me on the tech support team when they did not get me they got one of the next MVPs in Dinobot
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot was one of the youngest of the MVPs tkron probably could have worked for Blizzard but he had a good job in Chicago doing business programming already
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot probably still works for Blizzard would love to reconnect with that guy
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I wonder what ever happened to Wargasm?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    This new version of Xenforo really is awesome
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Wargasm is still around. He works for the domain registrar where thehelper.net is kept.
