I'll continue to upload vids of the movesets for weapons, I used them a lot in the beginning and found 34 weapons didn't have them.
Good that I can do that as guest because the login-function is really bugged.

Hi

Thanks for adding the videos! I noticed some of the weapons pages have an invalid @darksoulswiki call on the "include page" - the new text should be @darksouls - you can see it from the text editor on each page and simply swapping those words fixes it :)

Also, how is login bugged? You know your old wikispaces account won't work on it right? And to have a new wiki account you actually need to register here on a thread.

Reason for this: The deal that we did with wikispaces limited the amount of users we can have, so we decided to have the login redirect to forums and have people apply on a case-by-case. Majority of our 18,000 wikispaces users had made a grand total of zero edits xD

Hey I noticed you are editing the weapons pages with the new videos you made :)

I was thinking that it would be good if as you edit you also fixed the error:

[[include component="page" wikiName="darksoulswiki" page="Weapon Description"]]

All you have to do is click on "edit widget" and select " Dark Souls Wiki" as the origin wiki for it. Thank you :)

Yes sure, I'll try to do that.
By 'edit widget' you mean edit the video widget I put in? I did that, but then I really have no clue how to go on.
Under which option of the 300 can I select "Dark Souls Wiki"?

Hi

No there's a widget at the bottom of the page, that calls forth another page it's called "embed contents of wiki page"

They broke when we move URLs and now look like this:

When you edit a page it looks like this

You should change this here to "Dark Souls Wiki" (A list of our wikis will pop up on drop down menu too)

Would be great to have help fixing them. Thanks!

Hey there,

first and foremost: Welcome and thanks for the offer! Any help is greatly appreciated. Even more so with a new game coming up, and with it, a whole new Wiki to fill in record time :]

Your best bet if you really want to become a contributor, is to PM Fexlea on the Forums, or message Fexds on the forum chat.

Whether you can translate, expand on the English wiki or even create instruction videos, it's safe to say we will gladly welcome anyone helping to make this place more awesome and complete.
