Speaking of Wikis, earlier this week I launched a project I am very excited about: The Speed Run Wiki. The SRW is intended as a joint project that will unite all of our similar communities: the Elite, Kart, scopinfo, the SDA, N64HS, SC, and whoever else would like to join in. The main focus of the Wiki is world record strats, but we also intend to feature complete video coverage, so new runners can not only read the strat but also see it performed before their very eyes. The early results for the Wiki have been highly encouraging… 41 editors are currently active, working to improve the 400+ articles we have already created. Most pages still need more content, naturally, but the guides for the games we are putting an early focus on, namely Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, and Mario Kart 64, are beginning to fill out nicely.
In a related story, be sure to nominate Perfect Dark for the upcoming GameFAQs contest! Log in to your account then visit the nomination form and you can write PD’s way into the “Best. Series. Ever” Contest that will be kicking off on June 1st. Only 32 series will make the final cut, so every nomination matters!
