I put some time into WikiNas as a hobby while fishing in-game and I had kinda hoped Nas would get around to fix its logging process before an entire year passed, but at this point we might as well start a new one and call WikiNas deceased.
A few points for your consideration, if you want to start a new Wiki:
- The main reason NasWiki turned into that disaster is that some twat created bots to flood the Wiki with fake articles. Since anyone could create a wiki account without any serious verification, and those accounts weren't tied to Nasomi forum accounts, it spiraled out of control quickly. I'm guessing either Nasomi broke the login on purpose as a stopgap or the bots managed to do it themselves. Anyway authentication is important and the Wiki's owner will have to take responsability for it, otherwise it's all gonna get fucked up at some point again, whether from advertisement or haters.
- It was hard to format an article on NasWiki so that it wouldn't look like ass on a mobile. I think a new Wiki platform should allow minimal CSS, something like flexbox or any form of support for responsive pages, really.
As an aside, I miss Nabutso because he helped keep WikiNas organized and called out fuckbois who edited stuff out to keep secrets
. No matter what happened when his relation with Nasomi ended, I appreciated his efforts at keeping that place clean.
That sucks, I sure hope something could be done the retain the NASwiki and have it updated either via article submissions or a private party to add the articles (somewat like a FFXI blog). It's a private server so I understand content from retail won't carry over well from FFXI-clopedia to NAS.
I would pray that faithful players who like editing and writing take up the mantle as I'm sometimes lost in-game or I have to refer to "ffxiclopedia.fandom.com/wiki" (so far so good, it's been helping me out) tho NOT all info is accurate to NAS, so expect the worse
