But then again, why would you need an wiki for a game, when all the information about it is in the games page? Unless you are adding some new information, like outside reviews and such?
Good question. If you put everything in the wiki, it will be more integrated (or, in case crisis like other sites going down you will have an alternative solution). But, on the other hand you can just put a link to the Games page in it.
Sometimes it's hard to decide whether some stuff shall be there or not.
Take this as an example, Monkey added the AGS manual
, which is already included in the AGS distributions and is also online as part of the official AGS site. The problem is, the official CHM and online versions are maintained by CJ himself, which will be updated by himself whenever necessary. On the other hand, someone needs to maintain the wiki version manually, otherwise it will be outdated whenever the official versions are updated. Also, when updating the wiki version, the maintainer will need to know what actually
are changed in the official versions, which can be real difficult.
Monkey worked hard in bringing everything in the manual to the wiki and had promised he will maintain the wiki version of the manual. I hope he really have the stamina to manage it.
I think my view on this is, basically everything
can be in the wiki, but before making a page, think about it first, judge whether it's something that, say, requires continual maintainence and in such case, make sure there are people who are capable to update it frequently.
P.S. Well, Monkey posted before me. I'll post it directly anyway.
