Zy-El Wiki Merger

  • #1
    The wiki for Zy-El, a mod for Diablo II, will be moving to the diablofans wiki. It is currently located at http://zyel.wikispaces.com/, and has several thousand pages in it. Now we'll condense that amount for sure, but it will be moved here in its entirety. There's lots of work to be done, and it will take some time. So when doing this move, we need to keep a few things in mind so it doesn't all get jumbled together and clutter the wiki.

    1. Naming
    All pages related to Zy-El must carry the (Zy-El) tag, similar to how other mods are currently displayed in the wiki. This goes not just for regular articles, but also for images and most often templates that are to be used. This will keep it easy to distinguish what pages belong to Zy-El.

    Example: DiabloWiki.com - Eagle Stance (Median XL) Eagle Stance (Median XL)

    2. Categories
    While not monumental for articles, images that are uploaded to the wiki definitely need to be categorized, or there's no telling where they belong to or to what, and finding if an image is already in the wiki or not will be troublesome at best.

    When uploading an image, categories are added in the summary box. An example of an article could be something like:

    [[Category:Zy-El treasure card images]], where all images for Treasure Cards would be sorted.

    A big thanks goes to PhrozenDragon in contacting the Zy-El Wiki organizers that includes me. He answered all our questions in a timely fashion and that is one of the reasons we choose to merge. We are also impressed by the looks of the pages and the organization of the Diablo Wiki site is. A big hand goes to all who contributed to the Diablo Wiki. The names are likely to be to many to list.

    I will be assisting with whatever I can during the move to our new home. Any assistance from anyone is greatly appreciated even if you do not know much about Zy-El.

    Happy Zy-Eling

    Is there any assistance I can offer or just wait till everything is converted?
  • #9
    Of course there is. I mean, the plan was for all of you to help with the converting, or else I'm gonna be sitting here until after D3 comes out copying pages :P

    Metropolis_Man. May or may not join Diablo Wiki. He has a few other commitments.

    I have not heard from Al-T for about a week or so. He has a few other commitments at this time.

    Vern has retired from D2.

    Phlebiac I have not heard from for quite some time. At least a few months.

    The other members were never Organizers

    Okay, so Al and MM are maybe's, good to know. According to the Zy-El About page, SGVern is also an organizer. VeaaC and slayer were on the "Credits" page, I was wondering about them as well.

    They were on the credit page for either a suggestion or something was added to the mod so he gave them credit. Slayer was also a beta tester for the mod.

    SGVern is also known as D2Vern(Vern) at the keep. He is also a moderator for the Zy-El forum but just last week he stated he retired from the mod for good.
  • #17
    Ah, makes sense. Alright. If you can get MM, Al, and Vern to come aboard, let me us know, =).

    Just trying to make sure we've got everything complete and organized. By the way, you and JrEye have new User Titles, Mahatma will also receive one if they every make a forum account.

    You have much to learn, my young padawan. Use not the member list, but the ModCP ;)
