Football Manager Wiki

Nah, it's great to keep it as is now - although I do think it would be useful to have a link to the FM10 category at the top of the page?

Done :thup:

I reckon our main target should be to generally make more pages on things related to Football Manager. For example, we could make pages on Beta testing, Bugs (saying what a bug is) and generally some more miscellaneous pages.

Do you reckon we could make a new thread asking for people to say what else they think we could make pages on? We need to know what people want from the site.

I could probably help a bit with miscellaneous pages, although I'm not sure what's left to write about there.

A beta testing page couldn't be done as it's closed testing and you have to sign an NDA - unless I'm missing something here?

I'd be reluctant on starting another FM Wiki thread in this forum, as we're lucky enough to be allowed just the one thread here.

Oh, and I posted our EDT, DDT and LNC files guide up in the editors' forum. I was updating their forum resources and FAQs sticky yesterday and noticed there wasn't anything on them so I posted it up. Linkage

Anyone could write a page about what beta testing is - it's not like it's one big secret that beta testing happens.

I'll write up a short something, and check with Neil to see if I'd be alright to post it on the site.

I don't think SI would be cool with it, but you could try anyway.

Looks fine :thup:

The only thing I'd be wary of is that it might cause some people to hassle people for beta testing places.

I shouldn't think so. I didn't say who would be the best person to contact on purpose, and the most obvious person (Miles) has PM's disabled.

Other than the Co-ownership bug, Bojan bug and Injury bug, what other bugs have been in FM09?

EDIT: And the African Super Cup bug

That is all you can think of? Deary me :D

I don't think there's much point compiling a list of bugs in FM09. Sounds like more effort than it's worth - I mean who would come onto a site to read about everything dragging the quality of the game down?

I've made the page on bugs, it's got 5 of the biggest bugs from this years game.

I've seen you say a few times that it 'Sounds like more effort than it's worth', isn't the point of a wiki to have as much information on as many topics as possible? People don't want to go onto a site that sits and sucks SI's arse, that'd be pointless. People want the real, honest, stuff, and bugs are a big part of the game.

Any update on what's happening with the team pages yet mate?

It's got nothing to do with kissing SI's ass - I just don't think many people would have any interest in reading about problems that were in the game. Because of this, I won't contribute to that page. It isn't to say you can't write about it - it just means that I don't want to spend my time working on something which I don't feel would contribute much to the site.

If you were only planning on mentioning the main bugs, that's great - but honestly if you were thinking of compiling a definitive list of FM09 bugs I think it'd be more effort than it's worth (;)).

You seriously think I would even try and write down every bug from FM09? Not only would that be a complete waste of time, but it would be boring to read and half of the bugs are barely noticeable.

I just think it's useful to have some of the biggest bugs that have been in the game, seeing as these are the things that have ruined the experience for some.

I've been ill for the past week so making massive changes to pages on the wiki was the last of my worries. I'll get back to it probably after the FLS tonight.

Also the Spanish registration bug where a B/C player would take your A team player's 'squad slot'.

Yeah, no worries about it - I was just wondering where you were at with them. :) You better now?

I'm giving the FLS a miss tonight, can't bear to watch our loss to Cardiff :'(

I did :D

Serie C, Spanish registration and the heapload of compatibility issues (not sure if this counts as a bug or not) spring to mind.

I'm not completely sure what the Serie C and Spanish bugs were - if you know, could you write a similar amount to the ones already there on the Bugs page?

Serie C - the game crashed on a certain date if you had Serie C loaded

Spanish Registration - Not certain, but a quick search should give you the info.

Have this week's blogs been done yet? If not I'll have a read through them now.

This page will probably come in handy for you, Adam. It explains most of the codes you need to make certain things show up.

Do we really need the about page to be linked to on the sidebar? It is linked to across the bottom of every page after all..

Jammy, is there something on templates you need explaining. The way you're using a template for every text box makes me think you're not sure on their uses :D

Nah, I was being thick and couldn't find a link to it onthe site. Forgot about it bottom of the page :D

And no, I understand how to use them now - I didn't know how to make text boxes before etc.

Your FM 2010 pre-order page is useful!

Good work guys.

Glad you found it useful. I had a load more pre-order stores listed on the site a while back, but I accidentally deleted it and can't for the life of me figure out how to find it so I can't restore it :(

Does anyone remember which version of CM it was that had spoken commentary?

CM2 I think. Don't forget to mention Bennico's FM09 soundpack and nova's '08 one (I suppose) :thup:

Are there any other articles that I could write? I could do with something to do...

I think the beta testing page needs to be expanded to become a general testing page - in house testing is more important, to be fair.

As for other ideas, check your inbox :)
