New Feature - Guides!

Step 1 - Create a guide list if there isn't one already

This step is very straightforward. Similar to achievements, if you want to submit a guide to WGG, there first must be a Guide List. On the Game Home Page, scroll to the bottom and click "Add Guide List" (if a guide list doesn't already exist).

Step 2 - Create a Guide

On the bottom of the guides list, there is a button that says "Add Guide". This is going to be the homepage for your guide. Title your guide appropriately, and add whatever you want to this page. If you want to add your entire guide to this one page, go for it.

Step 3 - Add Pages to your Guide

If you've created wiki-sub pages on this site, you already know how this works. From the Guide Home Page you can create Guide Sub Pages. These Guide Sub Pages will be a level below the main page. You can also create a Guide Sub Page from a Guide Sub Page, letting you structure your guide like a book.

Take a look at my Call of Duty: Black Ops Veteran Difficulty Walkthrough as an example of a completed guide.

NOTES

  • All submitted Guide Sub Pages go through a moderation process. Not to moderate quality, but to make sure that you don't try to submit a page to the wrong guide (intentionally or on accident). ANYBODY can submit a Guide Sub Page to ANY guide. This is a flaw in the system that I have not been able to find a better workaround for, and I really want to get this feature up and running, so for now it's going to work like this.
  • Pages sort themselves alphabetically. If you want them listed in the order they are presented in game, you should add mission #s at the start of the page title (again, check my Black Ops guide as an example) http://wikigameguides.com/Call_of_Duty_Black_Ops/Guides/Veteran_Difficulty_Walkthrough
  • When there are multiple guides for a game, they are sorted by score. On the Guide Home Page, there is a +/- voting box. If you like a guide, vote it up.

 

 

As always, I appreciate feedback, and if something doesn't make sense, don't hesitate to ask.

Is there any system in place to prevent cronyism or abuse of the +/- voting?

Finally, even though I don't make guides.

YES! I'm so glad you asked. There are in fact many safeguards to make sure that the +/- system is not abused.

But, as with any voting system, nothing is 100% certain

Unforunately not, this is why I suggested a +1 voting system only (sort of how facebook does liking).

This strikes me as a better idea, but that's just my opinion.

Only being able to +1 or -1 a guide seems a safer way to vote. Hopefully people can't just delete their cache and vote again.. But if a guide has like +132543643 votes but is recorded with a camcorder and someone clicks on the guide with -554 votes recorded in 1080p edited with a 3 thousand dollar software, they'll figure it out.
