wiki is up and running under http://wildstar-docs.eu
It's running the basic config only at the moment, so if anyone wants to help out setting it up with images and the likes, let me know.

If you need any photoshop work done lemme know, I'll be sending my addon buddy over to this site to start filling it out when there's places to put stuff.
So those are some of my thoughts from the bathtub.

awesome :)
I will start with the documenting really slowly as I work further on my Addons.
I will create a specific sub-page called Wildstar API, which will host all sub pages then like on the NASA wiki.
Will be linked from the main site.

Plans are to include guides and tutorials as well at some point.
And the coding standard guide we used at NASA

How does something like this look for starters? Have anything particular in mind?

You should create templates for function / method / event formats.

I'll look into those templates. I'm not an expert when it comes to wiki stuff, so help is welcome
Logo looks awesome, will upload it to the wiki

so,

I've created a template called Template:Library, which contains the code for displaying all subpages for Events and Functions.

The code looks like this:

Copy
{{{description}}} == Events == {{Special:PrefixIndex/{{{name}}}/Events/}} == Functions == {{Special:PrefixIndex/{{{name}}}/Functions/}}


So when I look at my Apollo page, it looks like this:

Copy
{{Library|description=The Apollo Library contains most standard, non-library specific information.|name=Apollo}}


And it includes the template properly but it's not listing the http://wildstar-docs.eu/index.php/API_Documentation/Apollo/Functions/RegisterAddon page ....
Not really sure what I am missing now.
As I said, I'm not a pro at this..

okay fixed it :d

http://wildstar-docs.eu/index.php/API_Documentation/Apollo

Now it shows the sub pages properly.
So with this template, we need to name the pages as follows:

Function : {{API Documentation/LibraryName/Functions/FunctionName}}
Event : {{API Documentation/LibraryName/Events/EventName}}

I will make more templates as needed to keep common sections easier to use.
Slowly getting the hand of this wiki stuff now.
