Hey, you can link to wiki pages in BBcode now.

So, I hacked the site to add internal wiki page linking to BBcode, and turned off that fucking irritating default-to-wiki-formatting hack that I'd put in originally. To link to a wiki page, just enclose the page name (with underscores instead of spaces) in double square brackets, like so:
[[I_Am_Sorry,_Bio-Zombie]] becomes I Am Sorry, Bio-Zombie
If, for some reason, you want to link to a wiki page with different text than its title, just leave a space after the page name and then write the text before you close the brackets, like so:
[[Klik_of_the_Month_Klub Kotmk]] becomes Kotmk
Pretty sweet, yes?

Yeah, we're getting to the point where we have so many freakin' games on the site that it'd be good to have a way to organize them better and have mirrored download links and screenshots for everything. I'd like to get wikipages for all the old stuff, too.

Eventually I'll try to hack up some fancier views, but for now just getting everything in there would be awesome.

God, I wish. The lack of this is exactly what killed my "Critical History of Electronic Games" project. Google for "semantic wiki" and "structured wiki" and despair.

I don't know why it's so hard to do, but no one seems able to pull it off.

That's lame. Wiki sucks. I could write something better in Perl ;-)
