  1. Happy New Year! Last month was a rather busy one for the one true wiki, as is to be expected in Cacowards season. Below is an overview of the new articles, and also noteworthy are full walkthroughs for all of Sunder's maps, courtesy of Getsu Fune.

    Doom Wiki Month in Review (Issue #13)

    And all 9 map pages for SIGIL were also added, with music info, secret descriptions, map views (SP and DM arena), statistics and more. Walkthroughs, anyone?

    Sunder - Map18 Emerges!

    Happy to help. :) In that case, since you additionally adjusted MAP10's "Hag's" in those two lumps, the same fix is needed in the readme.txt.

    Sunder - Map18 Emerges!

    Very minor thingy, but in MAPINFO, the apostrophe for this title is missing. Same in CWILV32 and CWILV14, and the DEHACKED strings for those two.
  9. Yes, that has long been established as the type of WAD. See the second intro paragraph in the wiki. Ah, thanks. It had indeed been quite a long time since I checked them all. They removed the entire archive. Removed from the official lists -- Doomworld admin(s), please remove the Greek mirror from the https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/ browser.
  10. With all the usual mirrors: https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom/Ports/s-u/sigil_v1_1
  11. Done. Now it's up to the admin(s) to process it.

    Site and/or forum bugs or things not working

    A redirect problem with idgames links from Doom Wiki: https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/?id=17424 goes to: https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d2twid just fine. But: https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d2twid.zip goes to: https://legacy.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom/s-u/udtwid which my Firefox doesn't allow because: "legacy.doomworld.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate expired on 05/05/19 13:01. The current time is 24/05/19 14:19. Error code: SEC_ERROR_EXPIRED_CERTIFICATE" Can the path redirect be pointed to the same server as the ID redirect?

    DSDA api

    Thanks, I'd appreciate that very much. For new WADs without old ID, we can create a new dsda template and use that in future map articles.

    DSDA api

    Despite automation, it is still a big task to me. Bot account actions aren't autonomous; a bot script is run on each .ini file separately, under human supervision so it can be aborted in case a malformed edit comes along (e.g. due to a non-standard entry that the script didn't take into account yet). No-one is going to review thousands of bot edits afterwards, so I believe that monitoring is important. While running across multiple .ini files can be automated further, monitoring updates on 4500+ pages (the other 1000-odd map articles don't have DSDA links) is still very time-consuming. And before that, updating the .ini files is a time-consuming task in itself. Could you at least provide a mapping list of old numeric ID to new alphanumeric ID so I can try to script those updates? It should not be hard to create that as a by-product of the import phase from the old site. The optional title field determines how a link is shown in the article, and cannot and should not be used to control the external link. The whole point of this template (and many like it) is that the external links can easily be updated in a single place if the IDs are preserved, and it'll be frustrating if that won't happen here.

    Please reconsider that. Wad IDs (and optionally map IDs too) are used in the dsda template and only the template would need to be updated to point to the new site and WAD/map pages. With a different ID system, some 4500+ DW articles would need to be updated which, even with a bot script, would be painful and time-consuming -- as would manually looking up the 380+ new IDs and updating the bot .ini files.

    DSDA api

    Obviously. And a notes field? Edit: query by wad ID (e.g. 947 for Doom IWAD) would be most helpful, since I already have those in XymphBot .ini files.

    Looking for a map with too many barrels.

    Oh right, I was aware of that for some entries, thanks for reminder.

    Looking for a map with too many barrels.

    https://doomwiki.org/wiki/Barrel#Appearance_statistics lists a top-5, with https://doomwiki.org/wiki/MAP30:_God_Machine_(Sunlust) at #1.

    Fair enough indeed, thanks for the explanation.

    #52, Phocas Island 2 is a 6-level PWAD. Which map in particular is the memorable one?

    Doom's 25th Birthday - What will you be doing?

    Adding the single-level Cacoward winners/runners-up to Doom Wiki. Other contributors can create overview pages for the multi-level mods (with a custom things mapping list, if necessary), then I would add map pages for those too.

    To me, his Darkdome (Eternal MAP12) was one of the best maps in the vanilla era. Nucleus and Time Gate were great too.

    Doom Wiki Month in Review (Issue #6)

    That seems like a special case indeed, and... I don't know whether it should be in the arena category. Opinions, anyone else?
