Right now, the wiki for our beloved game is an absolute mess. It has too much information in some areas, not enough in others and most of it is just wrong, especially now with update 11 nor has it really seen any updates in quite awhile. Below is my proposal of what can be changed and added to better make use of Giant Bombs wiki system as well as inform all new and old players. A lot of past players may even be unaware of how much Warframe has changed in the past months.
This is the first thing people will see when visiting the page and in its current form, it doesn't sell the game very well at all. I want people to read it, feel intrigued and potentially go download the game. This'll hopefully lead to them having a blast with the game and wanting to join the clan. The overview as it currently stands was probably fine for when it was written as the game was still early but it has since changed so much, the overview doesn't accurately reflect that. Even the tag just makes the game sound so dull and uninteresting and doesn't tell the reader much information at all. With so many F2P third person shooters out there, telling the reader it's one but it's made by DE doesn't matter.
This one is just a matter of updating the story section and tweaking the images to be more cohesive rather than a mishmash of styles currently going on. The 3 main factions also just look like they were copy and pasted from the official site. The lore has also really expanded over the past year with events and introduction of Alad V and others which could be added here.
Individual pages. Yes, I propose that each weapon get its own page. I started this process back in April but due to issues with the site, dozens of pages I created ended up being flagged and were therefore denied. I was eventually able to submit and get a small number of pages approved but the process just took far too long waiting for each one to see if it was actually going to get through the system. I made the table we currently have but it wasn't long after I made it that I really saw an issue with it but never addressed it. If weapons have individual pages, they can take up far less room but contain so much more information. Below is an example of what the new table could look like:
As you can see, it's a lot less cluttered and lets the awesome style of the guns stand out rather than a confusing list of numbers that don't mean much to those who are just looking through where the main page can explore further.
I also believe that Warframes should also receive their own individual pages. Warframes are even missing right now and so is a lot of information. The lay out works fine but external pages just like weaons, could surface much more information for those who seek it.
Clans have been in the game for awhile but it was the introduction of the dojo and many more features that made clans much more viable yet we have zero information that this is even a feature within the game. I'd like to see a clan section added mentioning all the features that it brings such as PvP with clan members, trading, etc
I have much more to write but as I'm writing this it's getting late. Please let me know what you think of the changes below and what you'd even like to see.
