WIKIA Correction needed

In http://gaming.wikia.com/wiki/Illarion I found a torrent of hatred and correct.
If anybody would like to check and correct please.

PO Banduk

Just a copy of the former text:
This game is a NO NO. Taking out the fact that it has only a very low number of players, thus most of the time, spending hours in the game without even meeting anyone else, it is amazingly hard to gain skill, and when you do, you get punished for it! Yes, punished by the GMs, since they have this thing in the rules called “powergaming”. Also, the few players it has, are very elitist, unfriendly towards new-commers and hating each other all together. You should see the endless amounts of bullshit that their forum contains… makes you wish you didn’t know how to read. ... and so on

Re: WIKIA Correction needed

Ich würde mal sagen der Text von der Homepage ist nicht das Richtige für eine Wiki.
Etwas mehr Information insbesondere lexikalischer Art und weniger Flyer Werbesprüche würden einen seriöseren Eindruck machen.

I'd say the text from the homepage is not the right one for a Wiki.
A little bit more information since it is a lexica and less flyer advertisment would looks much more serious.

PO Banduk

P.S. Based on that text I wouldn't give that game no try.

Re: WIKIA Correction needed

This is an illa AD, nothing that has to be placed on a WIKI.

Put a neutral, descriptive text there that has the side effect of underlining the interesting stuff of illarion which makes it different from other games, without making it sound like an ad.


For example:

Illarion is a completely free open-source MMORPG that has seen massive technical and graphical changes over 2012 and 2013.The focus of this game lies on true roleplaying, that means the player should think into the world of his character and behave like an actor playing a role.


Some people will also remember that old entry !
So you should DEFINITELY add something like:

The skill system and fighting system have been completely overworked so players now are rewarded for their actions in a manner that fits their playing style. By the help of community managers, the tone in the community has been improved to a friendly, helpful one. Also, the people starting the game can now see which town is most populated at the moment by checking the online list so that they will find other players quick.

Re: WIKIA Correction needed

My proposal:
Illarion is a free graphical MMORPG in a medieval fantasy world. The focus of this game lies on true roleplaying, which means the player should think into the world of his character and behave like an actor playing a role.

History:
Illarion started in February 2000 and is constantly being developed by volunteers. There are continuously updates.
Main development steps
2000-2001 First 2D client
2001 first Isometric client
2006 Java based client
2012-12-21 After 12 years the previous world the isle of Gobaith got destroyed in a multiple week quest
2013 New client called VBU (Very big update)

Playable races: Human, elf, dwarf, orc, halfling, lizard

The skill system supports the following development threads: Fighter, crafter (more than 10 professions), alchemist. Development threads can be mixed in every way.
Illarion is playable without the usual RPG skills. It is possible to play character like bards, beggars, puppet player or priests that are not supported by the engine.

The world of Illarion is a consistent environment. The character must be related to one of 4 different communities with different main targets and advantages as well disadvantages.
Cadomyr (honor); Galmair (money); Runewick (knowledge); Wilderness (…)

Illarion is a choice for role player
- Character has to develop not in skill points only.
- Non fighting characters can be successful due to a rich crafting system and the acceptance of pure role play based characters.
- It is possible to play a character even without any skill points.

The player base constantly renewing at a low level. Developer and GM recruit from the player’s base.
Illarion server is managed by a registered society.

Re: WIKIA Correction needed

Sounds nice. :)

Why did you put history first?
I'd put information about the playable races before history, thoug .

Re: WIKIA Correction needed

I found the same thing at urban dictionary http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=illarion

I am looking around, but don't think we can change it. There are some... interesting reviews all of which are quite old. I wonder if there is some way to request they be removed or replaced with new ones?

Create a new definition and prove the definition right. As easy as that.
The best voted definition gets on top I believe.

So yeah you could write Illarion is the best RPG in the history of mankind with an awesome community but you might actually want to prove it then :P
