100,000 wiki points, oh my!

So, I finally hit the big 100,000. I have spent countless hours editing the wiki, adding information for various games, writing articles, adding releases, taking pictures, etc., etc., etc. What can I say? I really enjoy adding information to help my favorite video game website become one of the best game resources on the web. And at this rate, it looks like that will be soon. Here are my top ten favorite wiki articles I've worked on, because everyone loves lists.

10. Mario

Funny thing is, here I only wrote the information about all of the spin-offs and other materials. So, if you were the one who wrote all of the information about the main series, great job. There really isn't much else to say here; it's Mario, I wrote the spin-offs section, I got a ton of points, the end.

9. The Legend of Zelda

I still have a ton of work to do with this article, which is why it's number nine here on the list. The only section left to do, though, is that pesky timeline section (which could really use some help). Otherwise, I feel I did a pretty good job (the article was a grammatical mess when I saw it at first).

8. The World Ends With You

The World Ends With You is a game that I only recently picked up. The wiki article was pretty much blank, so I filled it in with everything from character summaries to a development history. Personally, I think I did a pretty good job, but that's up to you to decide. It's pretty generic stuff compared to some of the stuff higher on the list, though.

7. Mother 3

Awesome game means it needs an awesome wiki page. For the longest time, this article was uneditable (I don't think that's a word), but as soon as it was, I got to work on it. Like the The World Ends With You article, this is pretty basic stuff compared to stuff higher up, but it's still a decent article (full plot summary, yay).

6. Command & Conquer Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge

This is the expansion pack to Red Alert 2 (it shows up later on this list), so I naturally played a lot of it when I had Red Alert 2. So, when this wiki article shows up blank, I filled it in with a ton of information, listing all of the units and structures in the game to boot.

5. Beanbean Kingdom

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is up there in my favorite games of all time. The Beanbean Kingdom was an awesome place, filled with different sights and locales. I know a lot about this game, considering how many hours I spent with the game, so I dove into writing an article for the Beanbean Kingdom location page. An hour or so later, you have this article; a cool representation of the location that Superstar Saga takes place in.

4. Final Fantasy VI

Another wiki page that is one of my favorite games of all time. This one is different in that the wiki page was already partially built by the time I got there. So, if you worked on this article, great job, I just built on what was there before, adding a lot of information on gameplay, plot, and character summaries.

3. Capcom

I really like this page for one reason; it put into scope the massiveness of Capcom's gaming library. There is a lot more information I could add about Capcom properties being adapted into other forms of media, but whatever. The one thing I couldn't believe about this article; I got about 200 or 300 alone from adding links.

2. Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2

The Command & Conquer franchise is one that I have grown up with. So, when I saw that the Red Alert 2 wiki page was empty, I jumped at the chance to write a wiki for it. Now, I have not only written a ton about the plot, gameplay, and faction benefits, but I have also listed every unit and structure in the game, with stats, price, and a brief description. You have no idea how long that took.

1. Chrono Trigger

Okay, honestly, who didn't see this coming? Despite the page's... interesting history (which I won't go into right now), it is the wiki page that I have put the most love and care into, writing everything that I know about the game. Well, not quite (there is more I could add; I want to add a bit to the plot about reviving Crono), but that's beside the point; this page is awesome.


In closing, here's the first article I edited.

Dude, you should fill out that Cocoron game page. I've seen you talking about it a lot.
Posted by BoG

Kudos to me for being the #2 editor on one of those pages, the FFVI page. SFA, you say good job whoever started on it, well, I hope you know that you overwrote everything I did. We did nothing!

Anyways, I'd watch out. I'm hot on your trail. I'm almost at 20,000 points, and it's only been 8 months or so. Better watch yo back, sucka!

It's been forever since I wrote that Final Fantasy VI, so I had no idea whether there was a basis or not.

OOOOOH I'M SCARED

I'd play it some more, but I've got other things to do. And I usually just fill in crap whenever I remember something/see grammar that would make a puppy cry. I could probably get a few more spare points by adding the obscure games nobody knows of, like Granada [sic] or Shienryu.

I only have two points on that page because I added the title screen image. If I knew anything about it, I would have so many more points than you.

Creepy? It's supposed to be a dream world, how can you consider anything creepy? THIS is a creepy dream. And I loved the game. 4th best game ever.
Posted by Dethfish

Jeez, I thought it was an accomplishment when I got over 600 wiki points but 100,000? That must have taken forever. Do you know how many game pages that you're top editor on? It's only two or three for me.

I figured it had to be a lot. There has been many times I've gone to a page and seen your name on the side of it.

I've edited around 1600 pages, so probably a few hundred of those are me as a top editor.

Looks like you are really close to being number 1.

Quite a feat you accomplished, I am "only" halfway there. Quite amusing to see that I have edited on twice the number of pages but have half the amount of points you have, i usually do small edits.

Was that really needed?

edit: just checked out the Mother 3 page, i really should get back to playing that game and add some more character pages.

Dude, you must have no life. And I applaud you for that.

Seriously though, congrats. It makes my 12,000 points look like nothing. Ah well, at least I've got my 3,800 forum posts, and you can't take them away from me!!!!!
