Fair enough. I'm currently having discussions with Staff about the topic. Please can I ask that you hold off temporarily from adding any more threads - at the moment, I don't have a definite answer on whether they would like such a topic or not.
I'd recommend both "Staff replies" and "Staff started". Usually threads started by Staff get highlighted, but after they fade in importance, it will be hard to find them. Also, threads started by Staff are usually more likely to have useful info or questions than just any reply on a thread.
You posted that you liked certain aspects in a game so i wanted to give you a part in the creation of this game, like you said most games quests systems are very dubious, that why i will have 5 different quest lines, in which you can change up at any time so you never repeat what you have to do along with vehicle quests, gathering, killing, and special puzzle and maybe mini-games such as a tower defence type quest, as for buildable content there will be personaly 3+ floor houses that you can personally add anything you want such as in "Runes of Magic" and there will be several Professions such as alchemy, armor crafting, weapon smithing, and the basic gathering skils, like woodchopping, herbalism, mining and some others, to learn more of how you could become a major part in this let me know on my message board, i look forward to working more with you, and your efforts will not go unrewarded. But as i am currently in class being glared as by the teacher I shall stop short of my explaination.
PS: sorry for my quike typing, it might be sloppy.
As someone who has been in the software industry for over 20 years, you don't need training to start programming. Start with something like Python and start with simple question/answer games and move on from there.
It is completely insane for one person to contemplate creating an MMO by themselves, so you should maybe start a club with a group of your friends to work on it. It will also be a lot more fun and interesting to talk about your game.
Well, you're obviously on the internet. This is the internet age, so you could reach out via whatever networks you might be on (Facebook, Google+, Wikia, etc.) and ask. At minimum you could buy a starting programming book or get it from a local library, if you have a local one that isn't too behind the times.
I'm from the Silicon Valley and here we don't wait for schools or having stuff physically nearby limit us. Come with us to the future! ;-)
ok, only problem is im still a Junior in High school, so my options are limited as for what i can reach out for, and as for the library.... my school does not provide tech books, and we dont have any real public library, but i could probably get access from some websites. if you have any suggestions i would be open to hear your ideas.
I've founded a new Wiki and there's some stuff that I'd like to do to it but I haven't been able to figure out how to do it and I haven't been able to find any information as to how to do it in the Comm Central Wiki and/or the Admin/Founder Wiki.
May I recruit your assistance?
It's just little things really:
Making a Logo for the Wiki (I only ask because I noted that you helped another Wiki make a logo while I was looking for help on the below items) ; )
Having said logo in the top right corner, rather than the name of the Wiki
Adding an icon that Browsers can use as the Wiki's URL icon, rather than the Standard Wikia [ ] icon
If you're too busy that's fine, I just thought I'd ask. I know that there's a "Mentor" thing, but I figured since you seem to have the same philosophy towards Wikis that I do, that I'd ask you for some assistance first.
I'll post my requests on those links you've provided. I found that wiki AFTER I'd messaged you, and I saw your post about pulling back from contributing to that Wiki as well, so thank you so very much for your willingness to help me out!
Well, *I'm* greatful for any help you can offer. I tried to give examples in my Request logs. Not sure if any of that will be helpful at all. I'm still waiting on a response from the developers regarding the font and the Title graphic.
As long as your wiki is promoting their product making a nice logo falls under fair use. It would probably actually be a mistake for them to discourage using their graphics. Knowing what font they used would be helpful, but not absolutely necessary.
Working with Mobscience for the Legends Wiki has been an amazing experience, especially when my previous experience has been with Playdom regarding the MAA Wiki, whom not only won't support it, but will remove any post from their forum that mentions the Wiki and has banned people for promoting the Wiki in their forum. Despite this, the Wiki has been growing strong, which I think says a lot about how awesome it's been managed. ; )
So yeah, having the Developers turn around and supply me with graphics from the game and actively promote the Wiki in their Forum has been fantastic! Which is sad since really it's the way it should be.
You said it always helps to give a link to your wiki- the only reason I'm not giving a link is I had a troll problem on there for a while and I don't want it happening again. If you do a search for "Holt Rhulain" in a search engine my wiki will come up.
