    What it needs right now is a huge graphical overhaul.

    You should fix up your grammar a bit though such as:

    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 GetSpellTargetX/ GetSpellTargetY about them being introduced in patch 1.24. Also requesting information to be written on the UnitAlive native not being in common.j (I believe), but being usable in code once declared (in vJass).
