Links section[edit]

On this page, i think a 'links' section, and perhaps a section for keybinds and macros would be nice?

Additionally, if we are not to edit innacuracies w/o posting her on the discussion page, how long should we wait before we make the suggested changes? Does this include typos?

Typos are fair game, if someone can't type, go ahead and fix it for them. If it's innacurate... well, I won't complain if you change it, unless what it gets changed to is wrong. Appending and clearing up information is always helpful, feel free to do that. In general, try not to destroy a persons 'voice' in a post.
I'm creating a links and binds/macros section now, thanks for the suggestion. You can add sections and such yourself, it's not hard to do. Click on edit and look at how the other sections were done, if you need help, post here or on my talk page. Additionally, I like it when people sign their work, it's easy to do too... at the end of a post, type --~~~~ that's two "-" and four "~" --Mrnoj 17:12, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)

We should expand this to include City of Villains. Alex460 22:59, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

Changed the wording on the main page[edit]

I cleared up what I meant to say in the first place about editing existing posts. --Mrnoj 23:50, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)


Hi, Mrnoj. I noticed your book "CityOfHeroes". It is a nice effort book. Is there a reason why you write all words together, that is "CityOfHeroes" instead of "City of Heroes"? If you are used to this kind of writing from other Wikis, let me tell you that Mediawiki fully supports spaces in names (they are automatically converted into blanks (underscores) "_" in the address bar. So you could use City of Heroes or City of Heroes instead. (also on the subpages!) --Andreas 08:42, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Hi Mrnoj. In answer to your post on my user page: if you are logged in, you have a "move" command on top of each page. With this you can "move" the page to a new name and insert spaces. All history is automatically moved as well, and the old page will become a redirect to the new page. --Andreas 08:48, 29 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Well done. I also added dates into your development stage templates (you can see the date if you place the mouse above the symbol <removed> and wait for the tooltip). In this way, also in the future, you can see when this development stage % was updated and how trustful the information is. --Andreas 10:31, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Live and Test[edit]

I was thinking, since this is a wiki, it is easier to update than any other media format available. Because of that, should it be kept to only what is available on Live or Main Servers? I was thinking that all discussion of pending changes, even those that are on Test at any given moment we might want to keep off the "real" pages, or in a separate section.

For example, the Inspirations, since I'm working on that now, mentions them as they are tentatively planned for Issue 4. I really doubt this change won't happen, but on Live, today, there are still Discipline-family and Break Free-family insps.

Another wiki[edit]

There is another CoH Wiki out there, and it's got a nice domain name:

perhaps the two could merge? The other is under a CC attrib-share license, so anyone donating time/info to the wiki would need to agree to that, but if they dont, why would they be allowing thier stuff on any wiki? I am curious about who is serving up the pages for both these sites, perhaps the merge could be hosted at the cheaper, better, or faster one?--ChozCunningham 07:00, 27 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Well this is definately the cheaper one, since there is no fee for any WikiBook. I'll check out the one that you linked. It's great that there's another one out there.--Mrnoj 16:27, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Looks like that one is not quite the same kind of wiki. There is tons of content, but it is all generic information about zones and such. History type stuff for the most part. I think this one is shooting more towards guides and such. Also, the other wiki is harder to navigate and almost impossible to find any usefull info in. --Mrnoj 19:31, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)
I agree on all points you mention! I think having one place to go for specific strategy guides and for other information would be handier than two separate sites, sice there is already some overlap. I guess it depends on how the other wiki is run, where its hosted, and if the guy wants to keep renewing it if others start doing stuff on it. And I suppose we could maybe reorganize that site so stuff is findable? Your layout is a lot better.--ChozCunningham 03:06, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC)
I'll try talking to the owner of the other wiki next week... (have a lot to do today and I won't have much time all weekend). It'd be a good idea to clean up the other wiki, give it a usable interface, and put all of this info on it. There's just too much good information on both sites to want to lose any of it. --Mrnoj 21:55, 1 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Clarified difference between ++autorun and ++forward in keybind FAQ[edit]

The original FAQ stated that these were redundant, but there is a subtle difference between them, in that ++autorun is turned off by movement in any direction, while ++{direction} is only turned off by another movment in the same direction. I didn't mention this, but you could do something like "++up$++left$++forward", say, to start flying or leaping forward and to the left.

Something that I'm unsure about is the TILDE named key. I just tried it with I4, and it did not work. I'd want to try it out more, and get some other feedback, before making a note about it in the FAQ itself! --Sten 21:19, 6 May 2005 (UTC)

That's really interesting, I wonder if that was once a named key and it no longer functions. I've never tried it myself, I may give it a shot tonight to see what happens. (BTW, sorry about the lack of work on my part lately... between work and school and getting married last month I kinda have 3 full time obligations and not a lot of computer time... in fact, I'm writing this at school. :D ) --Mrnoj 03:09, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)

What is City of Heroes[edit]

It would be nice if your front page explained what "City of Heroes" is for those of us who have no clue :-) liblamb 19:11, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Cleanup required[edit]

These pages need to be cleaned up and merged into existing pages of the guide, and subsequently deleted. — najzereT 17:29, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
