FFR Wiki
 
>>> FFR Wiki <<<

The goal of the wiki is to provide a useful and easy to access database of information concerning FFR. Hopefully, it should be the ressource of information to check if someone has a question related to the game. While it's technically on another domain, it should feel like it's part of FFR.

GENERAL RULES
- They are the same than on FFR : no offensive content, no disrespect towards other people, etc. Wikia has also community guidelines that we should follow.
- A very important point I want to make is to respect private information of other users. Everything that's been posted by the user himself on FFR solely can be added on his profile. Also, if a user doesn't want to display certain information concerning himself, we should fulfill his request.
- Try to keep an impartial view of the subject you're working on. Reference as much as you can.

TASKS
Have been moved on this page

+1 to the idea. Good luck to the person who gets stuck with the work.

We already have a Wiki actually: http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Flash_Flash_Revolution

Hasn't been updated in a looong time though, but yeah I wouldn't mind helping out. :)

It's a good starting point, but it should be its own wiki so we could have total control to it.

Not to shit on ideas, but FFR isn't a broad enough topic to warrant a wiki.

Yeah, I remember making a bit of edits to this and the SM strategywiki a while ago. If a few people are seriously interested in updating this wiki to represent the current FFR, I wouldn't mind helping out with that. It may be ridiculously out of date, but that is nothing a few hours of rewrites couldn't change.

Not true at all!

Simfiling terminology that's applicable to FFR can fall under the topic of a Wiki. Strategy for improvement in of the game can fall under another topic. History can be another topic. Result archival of previous official tournaments can be another topic. Guides for areas of the site can be other topics. Token strategies can be another area of the wiki.

Honestly, you can do quite a lot with FFR if you're creative.

I would love to help out if this idea gets resurrected.

Should we update the StrategyWiki or do everything on ffr.wikia ?

I'd be up to help undertake the project if we could have a team to support this.

Btw, a FFR Wiki would be ideal, there is a lot of information that should be centralized somewhere, whether it be specific events related to the forums and its users, related gameplay configurations and or even trivia about songs and their origins. I often find myself confused about the history of FFR, and often have to excavate through dozens of thread to find for something everyone seems to know.

I'd be willing to help out with what I could, have no idea where to start though. There is quite a couple of outdated things on there that really need to be included, like the R3 engine and the velocity engine.

Still 100% onboard for this idea. A couple of months ago Zageron (or Velo? Can't remember) mentioned that they were dabbling with making a wiki built in to the site (using the MediaWiki software like wikipedia does), no clue if that's still on the books. Regardless, go for it and I'd love to help out if it's needed.

Rebuilding the FFR Terminology page from the ground up at http://ffr.wikia.com/wiki/Flash_Flash_Revolution_Wiki

EDIT: I see people uploading profile pictures

Finished updating the FFR Terminology page (Woah, it practically grew 30x it's size.)

http://ffr.wikia.com/wiki/FFR_Terminology

Tell me what you guys think, we can end up populating this Wiki with stuff from the forums here or subject on the website so that others will not have to go lurking through the forum to find what they need.

We should also add pages to update information on each individual engines, as well as some of the major contributions to the website such as the official tournaments, FFRRPG, deaths (if need be), events, tutorials, and links to things here on the website that are handy if the specific thread is not bumped to the main page.

Noname and Stinger, I made you guys administrators on the FFR Wikia page, feel free to use it if you want.

gold stinger 07-11-2013 05:13 PM

Re: FFR Wiki ?
 
Great, I can delete that useless AAA article now because we have the FFR Terminology article that includes everything.

Also, updated the list of notable staff members in FFR. Remember, any of you guys can edit them if you wish to add more information to them. I'm really just adding what I know to the articles for right now, trying to shove everything in there.

EDIT: holy hell references work so goddam differently, I'm gonna need to re-learn how to use wikia's reference system, because I'm just used to putting {{reflist}} at the end and that's the end of that. but it is definitely easier than trying to edit the strategywiki. Also, it seems much more formal than the strategywiki.

Great page goldstinger. I'm sure we could also get some kind of glossary page up so we can include an extensive list of terms not only related to gameplay (e.g. "TeRage")

I never used the Wiki editor, but I'll get my head around it.

visiting the help page is a great place to start with wrapping your head around the controls, which is located here: http://ffr.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Editing . The only thing you really need to watch out for is proper referencing to stuff, because it's quite different from Wikipedia, where they use a table for it, and this one has to be done manually. Explanations on proper citation using wikia can be found here: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Cite

Working on the FFR Standalone page right now.

Re: FFR Wiki ?
 
I've done a template for each song : http://ffr.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Song
(Nothing too fancy because I've never done this before.)

Also album/packs/token information will probably be included as text since they don't really concern every song.

Currently doing a template for musicians...
