FFXIV Wikibase Unleashed!Follow

#1 Jun 06 2009 at 2:26 PM Rating: Excellent
Hi all,

Our newly built FFXIV Wikibase is now officially up and running! Obviously, the Wikibase is in its infancy, although content is already streaming in following the recent announcements and interviews from Square Enix. Any contributions from the community are welcome!

We're planning on adding several new categories in the coming days and weeks to show what kind of info we'll be looking for. If you have any ideas for categories to add to the main page -- or anything else you would like to see added -- go ahead and post your ideas in this thread. This is your Wikibase, so all feedback is welcome.

We have big plans for this Wikibase, and we look forward to being your top source for complete and accurate FFXIV info.

Happy editing!

Many thanks. It looks great. Hopefully we get a steady flow of information from SE so we can fill it up.

There's actually a fair amount of information to chase right now, but my main reason for getting this up ASAP is that I'm certain more info will begin trickling in soon... and when it does, we'll be right on top of it.

Plus, with the addition of Elmer, we're going to be generating FFXIV news and information that nobody else will have!

Can I make a few aesthetic suggestions for the main page?

- The top infobox looks kind of out of place, its info could be placed elsewhere.
- The main table's width could be increased to fill up the content div and while we're at it the FF14 banner would probably look better centered.

Other than that, it's looking great so far. Thanks for putting it up.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll check it out. Just added Firebug to my browser so that will help.

Elmer the Pointy, who lives in Japan, has a well-known knack for connecting with members of the development team and finding information that only appears in Japanese media sources. You may have heard of JPbutton.com... that was Elmer's site!

Anyway, Elmer was just hired as our first official FFXIV community manager.

Could add a Bestiary sections as mobs are likely going to be some of the first things we'll get screen shots of and we already can identify 2 types of Jellyfish mobs, (2/4 limbed?) Dragonish type mobs (dragons technically have 6 limbs) and the big sea creature in the video.

I'm curious at what point if any will Zam be looking to hire more staff for developing and maintaining there community site and what roles will you be looking to fill?

I'm not too knowledgeable with Wiki's or how to edit them, could anyone be so kind to explain how? I would like to add my blog site to the blog directory. I'm not even sure if I even have permission to do so on that part or of the wiki or not. But I would certainly like for my blog to be on the blog directory page.

Here it is.

Ohh look, it's all pretty and professional looking and such ( ・∀・)

Thank you very much Thayos. And yes, I will update it as often as possible, whenever new information is added, or whenever idea's hit me and I get a brainstorm.

OMG I just saw Pikko Mistress of Gardening and had a huge happy flash back! I can't wait for this to flesh out and fruit! :D
The Wikibase is sweet! I know I'll be spending lots of time there learning, re-learning and prepping for the future fun. I hope to contribute if I can too! :)

For Armory style databases, check out:

http://www.finalfantasyarmory.com

Of course it won't be as useful until there is information to upload to the database, but there's a community forum already! :P

Many new updates to the wikibase have been made. Anyone feel free to add anything else!

Awesome sauce. Just earlier today I was wondering if there was a site that compiled and organized known information at this stage of the game. The wikibase seems to be the answer. Thanks!

I'm not finding any information on the gods. Looking in the wrong place? Full info not available?

The Wiki is so great! Thanks for setting this up.

The introduction says

'It is scheduled for worldwide release in 2010 for the PC and Playstation 3'

that should probably be changed to 2010 for pc and early 2011 for ps3?

I was just wondering the same thing.
