PostSubject: Wiki Contest Rules   October 7th 2013, 9:36 pm

Hey everyone! Friendly wiki update for you all.

First off, I am pleased to announce a wiki contest! Despite the best efforts of the wiki mods, info is still missing or incorrect. It's mostly cause we are human, and sometimes because we are we lazy Smile

Regardless, it is super hard for one person to find and fix all these errors. So I decided to concoct a contest to both A: get newer players familiar with the wiki and B: get some help finding this missing or erroneous data.

I'm sure just waiting for me to get to the point right? Ok, well here it is. For the individual who find the most correctable errors on the wiki I am going to be giving away your choice of a:

Siren Maiden, CXB-2000U, Canis Bulwark, or Na'Lac Angered!

As an added bonus, anyone who finds over 10 errors will receive 5 PS automatically!

Just think, if you don't have a blue bot, this could be your shot to pick one up FOR FREE!

Fixes must be PM'd to me on the forum or on the wiki, first time-stamped message for each fix gets credit. Spelling, grammar, mislabeled, misfiled, or missing content are all valid errors, whether or not an error counts is the sole discretion of myself and only myself. Contest will run from today October 7th until November 15th at 12am PST. Prizes will be distributed Sunday the 17th. I will be checking correction records for each file before awarding a point for the fix, so don't even think of going in and tampering with the files in order to rack up false fixes :)IF you go ahead and make the fix yourself (those that know how to work the wiki) please still PM me about it as well so I don't lose track of it.

Tell your friends about the wiki and the contest! If we get enough participation, I'll let the second place fixer pick from whatever is left! Improve the wiki! Get free stuff!

So far catches that we have had are:

A number of mercs that were listed as tradable but weren't and many that were listed as non-tradable but were.
v1 mercs had evolved and max stats duplicated.
A few number errors
Leader levels and stats
leader skill % chance increases
All Wasp families missing

Everybody keep sending stuff in! So far we have already gotten an incredible response. If you have never been to the wiki now is the time! Wander around, find some errors, and win some top class mercs up for free.

haha fresh, don't discourage people! kendohs found 9 errors just on the basics page in spelling, grammar, and content.

The point is to get the wiki SUPER polished and to give out some free mercs while I do it. If things start to slow down in a week or so I may shorten the term of the contest. I have had a HUGE response already so I already have a 3 page word document of changes that I need to do haha.

I have 2 11k's, 2 10.9's, and 2 9.7's at my disposal, so it could be ANY evolution. But really, does it matter. These mercs are free, and I am giving them out of my own personal collection because I want to raise awareness about the wiki. I'm not getting any help on this one.

So if you haven't noticed, I am intentionally withholding the stats. I don't want people deciding NOT to help just because they assume the stats are bad, nor helping ONLY because they are good.

This isn't about the prize, it's about the wiki. And my hope is that this contest increases traffic and familiarity with the wiki. That is the whole point.

My English sucks, so finding grammar mistakes is hard to me. I could make a Dutch version of the WIKI though. lol!

Just a bump to remind everyone about this Smile I want it to be in the back of people's mind as they comb the wiki for the info on the new mercs after the event starts!
