Wiki Information
Along with the forum, we also have a Wiki setup for maintaining guides, technical documents, and anything that can be useful for capturing information related to Skyrim and/or STEP. By default, the Wiki is closed to edits to anonymous users, but they have access to read the pages.

The Wiki is now tied to the forums for authentication, meaning that you will only have one log-in for both with the same password. Session sharing is not yet implemented, so the log-in process will be separate for both.

Having an account on MyBB will not grant the ability to log-in immediately. Permissions will still need to be granted, and requests for edit access to the Wiki can be placed in this forum. Only users with 30 or more mostly-productive forum posts and no negative historical conduct will be considered for wiki write permissions.

One thing to note is that if you've logged into the Wiki before being granted write access, you will need to logout and login again in order for the appropriate permissions to be granted.

If you have not yet checked out the Wiki (still a WIP), head on over.

Can the main wiki page be updated with links to the various pages, eg Wyre guide, Skyrim Overhaul discussion, etc?

Correct. Farlo has not yet set up the base structure it appears ...

Am I missing part of a conversation? I haven't yet made a page for SRO, I'm trying to get the general template done first, then I'll start making the pages that are confirmed for the next version of STEP. If you'd like to help in this process (it requires very little Wiki knowledge, although it's a plus) send me a PM with some basic info and whatnot. Once the template's done and it's just a question of mass production I'll make a more formal "recruitment" post for potential editors.

my misunderstanding then :P I didn't realize that Skyrim HD for ex was not already a page on the wiki that was simply not linked to on the main page somehow. Templates make good sense, sorry for introducing any confusion :wacko:

Not sure it was , but either way I've been perma-logged in since it started up so had to re-log to activate the permissions.

There is an issue with having to log out and back in order to receive the correct privileges, that's what happened. Not a big deal as long as every knows that.

Unfortunately there isn't a way around that as far as I can tell. The hooks that are used to update user information occur either when the user first logs in and the account is created for the first time in MW's database, or when the user does a subsequent login later on. EDIT: I updated the OP.
