Alternative title: Should we move some information from the main game-space to the new guide system?
On the Main Space
So, this has been on my mind for a while now, and the launch of the new site design seems like as good a place as any to bring it up. A number of wiki pages for game seem to dig real deep into the mechanics, weapon statistics, move lists, complete lists of magic spells available and other such minutiae. A good example would be the Black Ops II page, which has as it stands, complete data on every single weapon in the multiplayer, details on every single perk and scoresteaks, etc. While having this information available on the wiki is good, would it not be a better idea to save the main game-space for a broader overview of the concepts and moving the details into the guide-space?
As Separate Pages
This is a similar issue, but it's about what exactly deserves it's own character, location or "thing" page on the wiki.
I've been playing Skyrim again recently so this come to mind (and as such I'll be using it as an example here), there are games that have a huge number of NPCs that could easily justify having their own character pages, i.e. they have unique quest-lines, personalities and routines. It's easy to justify characters like Ulfric or Arngeir having their own pages, but do much more minor characters like Narfi (who is involved in two separate quests, for example) need them? There are similar issues with locations, obviously places like Whiterun and Riften need them, but do we need information for each settlement or minor caves and ruins? Where does one draw the line when it comes to this?
So basically, what I am asking is: is there a limit to what we should add or should we dig deep and just add everything and everyone that's in a game?
The way I see it is that the GB wiki will never approach the details of the dedicated sites like the Vault (Fallout) or the UESP (Elder Scrolls) when it comes to pure comprehensive details on every single person, location and item in the games, but it would still be good to have some information here when people are looking for it.
