Welcome to another OMG:Wiki progress report. All glory to the Hypnotoad.
All Glory To The Hypnotoad.

OMG:Wiki has over 1500 articles with over 340 of these being
substantive. It has all sorts of information related to the mod. These
articles consist of everything from unit information pages, OMG content
information (maps, doctrines, veterancy, unit costs, etc) and unique
community information.

Wiki Progress

  • Unit Pages: 100%
  • Unit Info (Summary, History, Basic Tactics & Tips, Formatting): 100%
  • Unit Costs: 100%
  • Unit Veterancy: 100%
  • Unit Statistics: 100%
  • Redirection Pages: 100%
  • Disambiguation Pages: 100%
  • Pictures (At Least One Per Important Page): 100%
  • Categorizing: 100%
  • Front Page Tables / Prettiness: ~50%
  • Doctrine Tables: 50%
  • Doctrine Information: 40%
  • Upgrade Pages (BAR, etc): 75%
  • Tactics Pages: 50%
  • Other OMG Content: 50%
  • Guides: 25%
  • Abilities Pages: 40%
  • Info boxes: 100%
  • Logo: 50%
  • Mega Tables: 100%
  • War CP Icons: 0%
  • Systems Information Pages: 100%

Notes

There is still plenty of content left to be added, despite the progress thus far. Things that you (the community) can help by adding to unit tactics material, information/guide pages, User:Pages, and
other content they feel should be included in the OMG wiki.

Again, for added emphasis, I'll stress the need for input. Currently 87% of the edits are mine, which makes me a sad panda. Mappers can help out by filling out their map information pages, experienced players can write strategy guides, and everyone else can find some small thing to add.

Grammar, spelling, and formatting are appreciated when adding new content. Please note that all contributions are subject to editing for clarity and spelling.

Be sure to check out the how to edit a page article on Wikipedia. It has some good information on it.
I've made a number of aesthetic changes to mega tables, so now they're much easier to read, better laid out, and sortable.

I got some good help with the upgrade tables which I am happy about. Thanks a lot to Apparition and Supahpingi for their work.

The best news I've had in a while is that I got info boxes to work. Info boxes are the bars on the right side of a bar giving you basic information. They look simple, but are deceptively hard to figure out. They work now, I've added them to every appropriate article, and I entered in the needed information. As of right now I'm out of stuff to work on until I get the WarCP images and Beta2 information.

Thanks for reading.

The OMG:Wiki now has over 1,500 articles with 335 of those being substantive.

I finished the Mega-Tables and the Systems Information Pages. I'm currently working on upgrade prices. I could use some help filling in a few gaps in the mega tables, but I'll probably do it tomorrow when I get my new microphone.

Otherwise, the only work that I really have left to do is updating articles to Beta Two status. Time to bug the developers for information.

I've been focusing on Mega tables lately. These are conglomerations of information from multiple articles into one easy to read table. Later I'll work on upgrade tables and information because I sadly overlooked.

Some of the long term things that need to be done, but I can't do because I don't have the required skills are creating info boxes, a better layout for the front page, and setting up a bulk uploader. Any help on these would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading.

Work on the OMG:Wiki slowly trundles on. I've been fixing mistakes and other errors as I find them. Still trying to get others to contribute so it becomes less of a Doink-centric information source. I've added some news articles and all is well in OMG:Wiki land. We still need a better logo, doctrine information, user guides, info boxes, and some more bells and whistles.

No real progress has been made on this front for a multitude of reasons. The foremost one is that my computer broke, and I had to build a new one. I am now writing on my new custom built machine, which I am very happy about. Also, I ran out of things to write about, and I don't know HTML which is holding me back. Hopefully the community will step up and start making some guides or other content to help me out. Until then I don't see a way to progress.

Hit 1,337 total pages. However, I ran out of stuff to write about, so for the meantime it looks like I'll have to find something else to do. I'm probably going tear through some of the books I got for Christmas and whatnot.

Earlier I expanded on some of the stubs, made a few redirection pages, and rewrote the front page. Give it another month and it should be complete.

Work on the OMG:Wiki is chugging along.

I finally finished American Doctrines this morning. Took me three days to get them and the Wehrmacht in. I can't imagine how much of a pain it will be to code that.

Also, I rewrote the front page to look a little nicer and added a small 50px image to the Stub, Rewrite, and Beta templates.

It's really starting to come together.

I semi-protected all the doctrine articles, because I don't want unregistered users destroying something I spent hours working on.

OMG is a persistentcy modification for Company of Heroes. OMG:Wiki is its wiki and information superhighway. It's a series of tubes, not a big truck.

OMG:Wiki has over 270 substantive articles and has all sorts of information related to the mod. These articles consist of everything from unit information pages, OMG content information (maps, doctrines, veterancy, unit costs, etc) and unique community information.

Currently I'm working on adding doctrine, tables, tactics, and a list of upgrades and abilities pages. I've finished adding veterancy , unit costs, unit information, maps, categories, redirection, and disambiguation pages. Almost every substantive article has at least one good picture.

It's looking a lot better than it was two weeks ago, and hopefully in another two weeks it will be looking even better.
