Fixed the link to Skippy's Campaign List; was pointing to the wrong place.

Slash and burn job on the article on GTI; someone had written it up full of ST:R stuff. I almost completely rewrote it. If people would check me on that it would be good.

There is also a new "+fire-down-normals" ships.tbl subsystem entry which someone might want to add when they get the chance.  See Mantis bug #591 for more details (or just ask me).

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
Could someone consolidate and update the install guides listed in the "Getting Started" section? I was attempting to walk a newb through getting fs2_open set up without the launcher, and was struck by how difficult it was to just find the proper name for the Media VPs folder, much less get things installed from scratch.

I've got a new respect for those members who are able to do it on their own. I'm surprised we get any new players, given the lack of prominence of a download link and install guide.

I'm just doing some updates to the wiki.

I'm finding that the link colour to pages in the wiki itself   ( [[SOME PAGE]] ) is so similar to the text colour (or the same as) that I'm manually adding underline to links as some are just not apparent.

Any chance of having the links be a different colour or even automatically underlined by the wiki?

I know if will change the look a lot for those links on menus, but I just think the links in the text need to strand out more (unless it was already decided that we just underline links in the text ourselves?)

Cheers!

This is the result of a misconfigured Wiki theme.  The theme when you're logged in is supposed to look like the theme when you're logged out.

Who's the theme guy?  Sandwich?

Upgrade of the link colors has been requested many times..

Also any chance of getting the huge [EDIT] tags in front of every section header (atleast on Firefox) replaced with similar quick link buttons as we had earlier? Like the ones like in the wikipedia... Small [edit] tag at the right edge of the screen at the same height.

How about updating the pics of some ships?

We have the HTL ravana, the Typhon, Zeus, Loki and some other ships done, but those old pics are still there...

Not sure if this is the wiki thread or not, but I've been working on some random cleanups, anyone would like to work with me on rewriting the freespace 2 installation guides and download situation?

Question.

Why don't the FreeSpace 2 Ship Databases include the ships from the demo? As far as I know they're fully canon.

Hmm... I thought there was some deep, philosophical answer to my question. I'll add them.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
Well, it's a good excuse to migrate the ship stats to a template as with the weapon stats, since we have to go through the lot of them anyway now. Already did the ground work and prepared a template for it (Template:Ship Stats), and also got a few of the ships done.
