I was wondering whether someone could assist me in fitting the profile pitcture on Cat's page?? Idk, but its just not working and keeps asking for a size?? If someone could help, that'd be awesome. Thanks~

Bottom line - sorry for stopping all my contributions to this wiki (and the Submachine one) for so long! At first my time was being eaten up, then I just sorta slid away from wiki editing. But I'll be back to filling out articles soon!Read more >
Sorry for my absence for a while there - the usual culprits of school and work and performing were wreaking havoc on my online productivity.
Anyway, other than slowly adding content to pages, I've:
- Deleted unused/unnecessary pages
- Added a Theories achievement track - go make some theories! (I shouldn't be talking, I haven't written any...)
I also, amazingly, still haven't finished playing DMT4 yet, which is why I haven't been adding tons of pages. I'll get on that soon.Read more >
Last week I spent quite a while writing the article for Lupus Square and figuring out how I was to write it. It did not seem to fit very well with the format of other locations, as it was a large square that had much to explain. I also had no way of seperating that information in such a way that can be logical and consistent. This is a problem I will obviously encounter again later when I write the article for Le Borgoi Pivot and likely also upon the release of DMT4. It may just my perfectionism, but to me the article seems inadequate.
Here is the article
P.S. Should the "Locations accessible directly from _____ Square:" be moved to the introduction? I think it would be better there.Read more >
I've updated the achievements with tracks for Characters and Locations articles - so you can get more awards for making edits on specific types of articles. Go for it!Read more >
So far when I've been adding content I've been following a specific format, but I would like to have some sort of an "official" format for locations (so to speak). This should help us stay consistent by having the same information in each section with minimal differences from page to page. The format that I have been following is below accompanied by a brief description of the information that would supposedly be there. Tell me what you think and whether you think that this should be the "official" format for locations.
Note: all location pages will include infoboxes and table of contents unless unnecessary or inappropriate. They are to be placed after the introduction.
Mentions in which game the location is found and from wh…

Well, I tweaked the theme a bit more. I wanted to ask everyone's opinion on the current theme. Does it look okay? Is anything difficult to read or see? Any suggestions for improvement?
I also implemented achievements and a chat on the wiki, which I hope will make editing a bit more fun (I don't know about anyone else, but I like earning achievements). I'm currently working on getting the name change, as well as figuring out how to write an automated welcome message to send to new editors. (If anyone has any advice for that, I'm not quite sure how to work it...)Read more >
I've just completely redesigned the wiki navigation bar. The main categories are On the Wiki, Games, Information, About and Community. It's a lot more organised than before and easier to use in my opinion. Tell me what you think of it, I'll keep on improving as sees fit. Enjoy :D
Update #1.1(5-5-2013) by The Abacus: I have now added theories and objects to the navigation bar. It seems like I had forgotten them earlier.
Update #1.2(5-2013) by Lorre: "dialogue" added
Update #2.0(17-5-2013) by The Abacus: Redesigned to fit page formats. Does it look okay?
Update #2.1(24-8-2013) By The Abacus: DMT 4 shifted to top of "main games," added "secrets" and "miscellaneous" sectionRead more >
I'm tinkering around a bit with the theme, trying to make it more....Daymare Town-ish. Anyone have a suggestion for an image that can be tiled to be the background of the wiki theme?Read more >
Today I got the news that I have officially adopted this wiki! Thank you to everyone who nominated me, I hope I won't horribly disappoint you. :P
That said, it'll take me a day or two to figure everything out. I've never owned a wiki before, so I want to make sure I know how to do things (such as appointing admins, which is a top priority for me now).Read more >
The wiki's been doing really well lately, with people contributing plenty of content. Thanks to everyone who's been helping out!
But one thing I've noticed is that there's a problem with creating character articles - or, actually two. For one, most characters don't have official names. For two, a lot of them have ambiguous genders.
This has made me think about how we should go about making character articles. For deciding names, using descriptive terms or things based on their words/actions/environment is fine, and for gender, it's fine to guess one way or the other. Basically, the first person to make the article gets to decide the name, and the first one to edit the article to include pronouns decides the gender. BUT, the important part is …Read more >
Of course this wiki still needs an immense amount of work. While the Submachine wiki has been tended to by a large group of users over the years, the DMT wiki has been abandoned for a long time without ever going anywhere. Now that people are taking it upon themselves to revise it, I just wanted to list off the major things that need to be done.
1.Pages need to be created. This is the first step. All locations and major characters need to get their pages up, even with just a picture.
2.Content needs to be added. Information and pictures. Nothing needs to be super in-depth yet, but a simple description of a location or a character can be the starting point for adding more detail later on.
3.Everything needs to be cleaned up. It's hard to organ…Read more >
