    Is anyone interested in creating FAQs for Wii games?

    Here how it should work:-

    The writers have to be active on wiichat.com
    The FAQs would be distributed with an open license but remain the property of the writers
    The FAQs must not be edited by anyone apart from invited writers
    The writers must be prepared to actually do some writing (sounds dumb but this happens alot)
    If there too many writers signing up for one title then examples of the writing ablility maybe requested
    Upto 3 writers per game (unless more is needed) - one of which is a senior writer (which would submit versions to the overall editor)

    Comments / Questions?

    Sounds interesting, are you familiar with the Wikipedia and its editing and writing setup?

    I could install a similar mini site on here, where anyone can add information that is vetted by a team of editors etc.

    Wow, you come up with some great ideas. =)

    We could have like a whole team on these forums, just for FAQs on Wii games! That would be pretty cool... I support it, and I also hope to be part of that team. (Although I wouldn't realy want to wright the FAQs right away, since I will be playing the Wii like nonstop.) xD

    If anyone wants it, I would totally be a dedicated fact checker. Of course, after launch that job kinda goes out the window.

    Glad to see some positive responses...

    we could use a pdf creation to add maps, slighty better than the txt stuff you normally get

    i was also thinking about writing a custom text viewer which could handle oversized pictures, which would include a zoom function (for maps)

    ---

    granted everyone is gonna be on a mad one when the wii boots for the first time and writing anything is gonna be a the back of everyone's mind... but as long as you remember what you are doing and write it down afterwards, well, you are on your way to writing a walkthrough.

    if the structure is in place before the wii (and games) are released then everyone will know what to do!

    more thoughts...?
