As some of you may have noticed, we changed/upgraded our commenting system here on the blog to utilize the Disqus commenting system. There were a few reasons for this, but the main reason is that we wanted a uniform system across the platforms, and we are pleased to announce today that we have (just) now enabled Disqus on our wikis. You should be able to see the comment section at the bottom of any article and talk page.
What does this mean? This means that if you go to, say, the Frisky Sabots article, you could leave a quick comment about how often you have noticed the Flee Effect proc’d. Or you can leave a comment about how an items is particularly good for a certain weaponskill. Comments are good for subjective facts about these items. OK, I know we don’t need to tell you all how to use comments – but just keep in mind that enabling these on a wiki does not mean that comments are a substitute for edits to the wiki. If information is missing, it should be added to the article so that it is easily found and part of the article itself. While leaving information in a comment is better than not leaving the information at all, a wiki survives on the community adding information in a manner that can be edited by the next user.
We hope you like – and find use for – this feature. It should allow for a very easy way to leave some quick thoughts for the next person who comes along looking for advice and suggestions. Leave us a comment below and let us know your thoughts. ;)
