So it's always a stuggle to keep such a wiki updated.
I'll be doing some updates to another wiki this weekend, but might check if I have some time for the Shop Heroes wiki after that or else next week. (might have to index the templates as first step; most of those have been created by players no longer playing and I don't think there's a clear list of them and what they each do.)
I'm http://shop-heroes.wikia.com/wiki/User:SDMarukokun on the wiki.
What might help from your side could be to upload images of new blueprints etc. after patch/pack releases, so the active editor(s) don't also have to be savvy with an Unity assets decompiler to extract the images out of the game files... (link to a zip/rar/tar/other_archive file containing them could also work I guess if individual image uploads isn't practical)
Noted, will be sure to forward this request to the new CM team. On the note of some of the previously active players who are no longer active playing, we will actually direct quite a bit of effort to bring these players back into Shop Heroes with the upcoming big content release we have planned. Aside from reaching out to them directly to inform them of the new update, we will involve all of your and your collective efforts to invite your friends or re-invite your former companions to rejoin Shop Heroes for some server wide prizing giveaways and special live event(s) around these efforts.

I would love to help but personally i dont think my knowledge is accurate enough to be respected.
Not that this is a substitute, but the discord group ([url]https://discord.me/shopheroes[/urll]) is a fantastic resource as well as the LINE group (get an invite from someone who's there already). Almost all of the "game data" is on richard's spreadsheet as well ([url]http://www.bit.ly/shopheroes[/url]). And most people jump at the opportunity to answer questions on the forums, plus a ton of guides on how mechanics work, how to progress on teams, etc etc. Not saying a wiki rally isn't a good idea (it is, and I'll probably comb through and see where I can contribute), but if you really want information on stuff the community is really great at helping new people, so feel free to reach out (:
I'd like to propose that the BIGGEST thing the wiki needs right now is an admin to template the whole thing and let others fill in the blanks. Hero pages are all different, as well as workers, quests, etc etc. If that gets properly templated I'm sure people would be more than happy ot fill in the blanks.
Agreed. There are already a ton of great resources on the Forums, spreadsheets, etc, but the new players tend to flock to the Wiki as their first choice to look for answers. Anyone within the community here experienced with setting up and running a Wiki? Would love to get a few volunteer admins.

I honestly don't know what happened to the wiki. It became rapidly unusable. The templates need to be removed and replaced. I'd even go so far as to say that the ads on the wikia page are overwhelming and we should move the wiki to a completely different site. Build it from scratch.
I don't know of any sites that are both free and don't have ads. We would need to pay into a site, probably. It is personally worth it to me to pay for hosting a site that does not have ads. Ads are the scourge of the internet. If a game is too complicated that I need to go to a wiki, and the wiki is full of ads, I'd rather just not know what it was I wanted to know.
If the plan is to stay on wikia.org, please reconsider.
We are very open to this, if you and a group of volunteers would like to manage and oversee this process, we would be more than happy to provide whatever resources needed on our end here.

I've been doing small updates here and there, mostly to the main page, answering any questions people have on the wiki. I wanted to start editing more heavily but I don't really know where to start and the thing is I'm fairly noobish at editing wikis when it comes to advance stuff and just simply don't know how to do a lot of things. I was going to start with mass updating BPs but making a guide for using http://shopheroes.sols9.com/ seemed better at the time.
There is code that copies data from the spreadsheet that a inactive editor wrote and puts in on the wiki but I have no clue how to use it.
If any one wants to be upped to a admin on the wiki let me know.
Welcome back! Glad to see an old face and one of our early adopters rejoin our community! Also, thank you for all of your contributions to the Wiki and community thus far.
