I guess it would depend on how often we have "Species" matches on Factpile. I wouldn't know, personally, but if it's often enough that they are memorable, I could see a reason. But I personally don't see a reason to start adding profiles to stuff that doesn't happen in Factpile. I mean, it IS a wikia, so if someone wanted to make a Species page for stuff, I don't see why I would stop them(Especially if it was you, because then I couldn't :lol: ), so long as it's detailed enough that it doesn't warrant just getting punted into a page related to that species.

One of the advantages of going wikia is that it has the category features. Species could indeed be a valid sub-category to a groups page, which in turn could be a sub-category to duels.

Remember that category pages will help tremendously for in-site navigation with less demand for cross-linking to other pages. Certainly keep such things in mind, fellers.

They might have, and if you want, you can throw up a Wiki profile for what it covers, and have the References area link to your thread.

Swifterdeath, I don't think I got the confidence to set up such a page, yet. :sweat:

Swift is the guy you want. He is the Mod in chanrge of these ventures. If he has confidence of what you're doing, then you ought to have confidence in it yourself.

Have at it. If we, or any observant piler, have any critiques to what you do, we will be sure to let you know here, there, or simply tweak minor edits in your wake. "It takes a village," bud - and the wiki is our collective child.

Just add what you can. It's a wikia, like Mata said, if you are having problems with it, other people will help. If it's looking fine, then it'll be left as an example of whatever you made it for. If you're not sure what to do, I can point you to some really well made respect threads on the wikia that would be good for examples.

And I wish I could get more work done on it, but I've been gaming way too often. Luckily I think I'll have some time soon to do more work. I'll probably make the Factpile Award Page, maybe set up a Universe Profile section.
