Another lovely week on this third planet away from the sun, and as always, the light of new hopes and of course, the sun we orbit, shines upon this beautiful day on wiki. Why the day is so beautiful...? Well, it's my birthday, that's why! =D
Today I complete 20 years of living -- that's two whole decades oO Two decades filled with awesomeness, love, fight, and, for the last 2 years of those 20, a LOT of wiki stuff ^^ I would like to thank all the staff and users who have been with me since the beggining of ACWiki -- especially User:Master Sima Yi, who's been with me on staff since the 2nd or 3rd month of operation and took a lot of crap (specially from yours truly) XD Really, dutchlander, youre awesome XD Thanks to all of you, guys and gals, you're the best crew a captain could ever want ^^
To the news!
Today we focus specifically on important wikimatters, since we have just one little AC related news since last week.
First of all, we have a new entry on Sammy's little hitchiker's guide to the wiki:
I've *actually* read this one, and I loved how he managed to explain it all in a easy, noob-proof manner. Specially the template sections, which is a little more than common but a crucial aspect of wiki operations nonetheless. So all editors, make sure to check it out!
Next comes the Extended Version of the ACR E3 Trailer! Brought to my attention by User:Cultfanatic, this version don't feature the awesome music of the last one, but a voice-over by Ezio. And it has new scenes ^^
Also, today I would like to do something that's never been done, and while it won't become standard procedure, it's something that can be useful: As many of you know, we have the IRC for all our chats and talk, but some of the staff members are in favor of ALSO enabling the Wikia Chat here on wiki as an alternative to the IRC. They say it is not a substitute for the IRC, but simply another way of getting people to talk and we can always direct them from the chat to the IRC once they are there. So, I like to hear your oppinions on the comments below!
Fire away people!
Now we'll talk about GIVEAWAYS!
Our sister ship Dragon Age Wiki is currently hosting a giveaway contest, and their contest format has been inspired by ours ^^ Their giveaway is all about the new DA2 DLC, so if you play DA, make sure to drop by and steal some gifts! =P
As a reminder, we are only 2 weeks away from the end of the very first Assassin's Wiki Giveaway, so if you haven't signed on yet, make sure you do before October 8th!
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to Outback to celebrate with some friends and my sweetheart the fantastic happenstance of my birth =P
So that is all for today! Post your comments below – me and the staff want to hear your opinions! Safety and peace.
