Wiki prefixes

Postby Madness on Sun Apr 15, 2012 6:36 pm

As of now all the information in the wiki is split between alpha and beta/full versions of the game, with the page regarding alpha information being prefixed by "Alpha:" and the beta/full information being prefixed by "Full:", this makes things a little harder to handle, and requires the creation of a lot of redirect pages for those who type the exact page name.

My proposal would be to rearrange pages so they would be ready for the game release once it happens, according to this structure:
  • No Prefix: Full version information
  • "Full" Prefix: Redirect to no prefix (only for the pages who already exist, for backward compatibility
  • "Alpha" Prefix: Free Alpha version information

Plus adding a disambiguation template at top of ambiguous page that link to the alternate version.

Yeah, that's definitely the best option.
