Upon my return to the site, i learned that someone finally did the good deed of creating a CKII wiki. It is at the altogether reasonable location ckiiwiki.com. This is a good thing.
Of course they will eventually crush me traffic-wise, and probably already have. Of course while there are a lot of stubs, one thing that definitely worked was the ad space. Just one ad space mind you, not the horror that is Wikia, but it is there and the ad itself is advertising advertising. A moment ago i could have placed my own ad there for $0. Of course community driven information will be more complete and accurate. Judging from the recent user activity over there, it looks like Meneth from the Paradox forums is involved, and he has done a lot of fine work. I am sure it will be aces.
That said, i still plan to keep going with House d’Hauteville. Wikis are kind of dry out of necessity. They usually don’t have a ton of screenshots to show you what’s going on, and stick with telling you what’s going on. Plus, there are still quite a few people stopping in here, whyever would i abandon you? Oh, umm, yeah..
For topics covered by the wiki, i have decided to adopt a policy of Link and Advise. I will not copy the wiki’s work (and i hope no one copies mine to the wiki). I will introduce the topic, link to the appropriate page on the wiki, and add any clarifications i think are useful, including screenshots.
In a best case scenario, this lets the community do all the boring bits, and i get to add cherries on top. I hope i can continue to provide some value and a reason to stop by, but i understand that the wiki will be the short and sweet answer to your problems now and then.
Enjoy the new era or CKII enlightenment!
