    I've been looking at that, too. I've been compiling a ton of stuff for the wiki, but it's all kind of in-depth and not ready to go up yet.

    I have maps for the dungeons (different versions of each dungeons to show their variation) and things like that, though.

    Re: Populating act categories

    In light of Red adding the act category to Festering Wood (article) I'm going to go over all the area pages again and bring them in line with that.

    When I went over them a couple months back I put the Festering Wood (C) into Act 1 and Festering Wood (A) into Festering Wood (C) only. I followed the same principle for the entire area section but will now change that. I will go over the section again this evening so it will look like this...using Festering Woods as an example (C) = Category (A) = Article

    Festering Woods (C) - is in the following Categories........Sanctuary - Zones - Khanduras - Act 1

    Festering Woods (A) - Act 1 - Festering Woods (the Act is the additional Cat I'm going to add them all to)

    Festering Woods Map (A) - Diablo 3 Maps - Festering Woods

    Festering Woods images (C) - Area images - Festering Woods

    Any img file - Festering Woods - Festering Woods images


    If there is any input into the organisation or structure of area pages please please let me know asap because each extra link means starting from the beginning again.

    :(

    When I get back to wiki'ing, I'm just not going to touch the categories for those pages because I'll screw it up.

    Re: Populating act categories

    No you're not screwing it up because you're right, the article page should also go in the Act cat too and I'm adding them all. It just makes it easier to get input on these things like structure, layout and categorisation amongst those who are updating beforehand.

    It's worth going over the section and adding Act cat to all place articles because we need it to be consistent for users and any new updaters so they know what's what.

    Re: Populating act categories

    I've made a boilerplate for the zone pages

    http://www.diablowiki.net/Boilerplate:Zone

    Does anyone have any suggestions for what else should be included in those pages?

    Re: Populating act categories

    There is a 'Quest' heading in the area pages

    example

    http://www.diablowiki.net/The_Old_Ruins

    Should we include quests that are given in that area or quests that take you to/connected to that area so that will include if they're given.

    Re: Populating act categories

    I've always believed that's it better to give too much information than not enough. I'd go with every quest that's connected to that area.

    Re: Populating act categories

    I just thought of something I'd like to see added to the zone boilerplate: an Adventure heading for listing all those fun things we can find in each area.

    Re: Populating act categories

    okay on both of those. I shall update the zone boilerplate with Adventure heading and also details of what Quests section should contain.

    http://www.diablowiki.net/Boilerplate:Zone

    Also it would probably be useful to mention if there is a checkpoint and/or waypoint there.
