This may not even be a bug, but I remember it being said that the new wiki would reward small contributions, like typos more generously than before. I'm not even getting much from typing whole paragraphs at a time and it's worse than the last site. If this is intentional, then nevermind, that's your decision, but it seems weird at the moment.
If the rewards are based on added text, do you get nothing or very little for fixing grammatical errors and typoes?
If the formula works out to anything less than 2, you will get one point.
@ltsquigs: Is HTML markup counted in the formula?
I fixed some seriously broken formatting from the old site. Spent about 25 minutes on it and got a measly 3 points out of it.
I've been a member since day 1 of the GB launch and have 474 wiki points. I don't do a lot of writing because frankly, I'm not a very good writer. I do like going through and attaching characters/concepts and formatting pages. I don't really care about the points, I'd just like to be able to bypass the mod queue but at the rate points are being given out, It will take me years to get there.
I'm much more of an editor than a content creator. I'm the guy who proof-reads your stuff and makes corrections rather than write the body of text. I would love to do that on wiki entries, but I've never felt like those kind of contributions were well recognized. Is it any better with the new wiki system?
Editing releases seem to give an exorbitant amount of points, while creating a release doesn't give an equivalent amount compared to the former. For example, if I edit a release and add data to two or three fields, it's giving me 15-20 points, whereas creating a new release with every field complete awards seven points.
