Wiki FAQ

Why is this site here?

We are very lucky to have an assigned Developer who reads particular threads on the forums and answers our questions regarding the game and its development. Fortunately (or unfortunately), the number of questions asked has gotten to be extensive, encompassing thousands of posts across four threads (with more arriving every day). As you might guess, the Developers get a bit tired of answering the same questions over and over again, as do those of us in the Community that have been around for a bit. Because of this, I have created this Wiki to categorize and summarize those threads.

Wikis are usually publicly editable, why can't I post?

Unfortunately, I don't have time to make this a full time job. As such, this is a closed Wiki, and will be updated only by a select few forum members. This is the best way to keep the information clean and correct (to the best of our knowledge), without our having to spend hours and hours moderating edits and trying to keep the trolls at bay. If you'd like to volunteer to help maintain the Wiki, I'll give information very soon on how to join the team. In the meantime, read and enjoy! You can get started by clicking "Categories" or "All Pages" in the left navigation.
