Hi IL! Well this knowledgebase initiative thread was posted by DonFer: Link

Within it is a very good idea of having multiple categories in the tactica section for discussion of the different unit types. This would provide a place where anyone can go for easily-found information on specific unit types. I think it's a great idea, personally.

That or we could try and build up as much info as possible and then create a single sticky thread with all the up to date information on the whole codex and all available choices in a single place. Just need someone active to keep it updated and add stuff.

The problem with a single sticky thread is the general lack of organization of the posts inside it. Then the person who is in charge of moderating it would have to decide what's worthy of keeping and what's not. Some posts might be short, but have good information. Some posts might be short, but only have okay information or elaborate on some that was presented in a previous post. Some posts might be long, but not actually very informative.

It won't really be a thread by the end though. Posts are used to create the final document, then at the end its a single locked thread with posts only by the creator containing all the information everyone provided. (original thread deleted and replaced or all posts after those containing the information are removed). Then anything really insightful or useful can be added later by contacting the mod/creator.
I've seen alot of forums which start adding a thread for each unit (Librarium comes to mind) and honestly it just makes the forum a nightmare, because suddenly the first 10-20 threads are always stickies, which yes contain good info but come before new threads and discussions. Then half the information is dubious, and all kinds of silly arguements start in the threads.


Just my 2c but I prefer a guide/tactica along the lines of The Way of the Water Warrior.

Ah. Yes your detailing of what you meant makes a lot more sense to me now. I believe you are correct, and it should be done the way you describe.

Essentially have the hectic, unorganized thread for some time. A designated person sifts through the thread, picks out all the useful information, and puts it into one organized, concise thread. That thread is then stickied and locked. I like it.

I have reviewed the cited "The Way of the Water Warrior" article, and it is organized the way in which the proposed thread here should be.

It will probably be harder because alot of people will contribute, but I think it can be really useful to players.

Good deal, really all we need is to let the thread keep going for another couple weeks. After that, one of us (probably you, Brother DonFer since you started the thread) will go through it and make the new thread. Is there any way to make a thread locked, but only one person can post in it? That way we would ensure that only the posts by the OP end up in the thread. Of course, any extra posts can just be deleted if there isn't a way.

We could also delegate. For example, DonFer could get all the PAGK units, Zealadin could get all the TDA units, and I could get all the things that aren't wearing power or terminator armor. Just a thought because sifting through all the info in the thread may be a bit difficult for one person. We could then send all the organized data to DonFer (or whoever else may be writing the thread).

No problem, it'll take some time since my wife is pregnant and requires extra care during the weekend but I can find the time. Let's do this since everyone can benefit from it (specially me that I'm expanding my GK army... pics to come this weekend). cheers

I'm very excited that this is happening. It will be a great resource when it's complete. Give your wife all the best wishes from her "in-laws" on Titan pirat

Looking forward to the pics DonFer.

Did we want to start with specific units or let everyone start providing information on whatever they like, then make requests later on for more specific areas.

No specifics, you have info about any unit just post it in a format that is common to everyone and of course as orderly as possible. Very Happy

Hello brothers, as I have stated before I'm really enjoying the site. One thing I would like is the option to minimise the main title image. I am using a laptop as I am sure a lot of brothers are, and it's frustrating to have to constantly scroll down a page every time I open a new tab :S

I just went over the forum gallery and approved some of the pictures.

It's easy to forget when it's not used much.
If you use it, please give me a pm and i'll check it up.

Otherwise i also suggest photobucket, simple and effective. Even has a simple photo editing software.

+1 Photobucket! It is what I use also.

I was wondering if there is any interest in getting a "chat" feature on the forum so that those on line at the same time can......chat Razz

It was enabled for some time i remember, and the option exists.

We would need someone as a chat mod i guess, just promote one of the ones we got will work.
I don't know the reason why chat was removed though.

I myself never used it, but being on GMT +1 doesn't help.
