When I first found the RogueBasin wiki, I was shocked that there wasn't any sort of Help section to assist new users and guide them. (The page hasn't existed since May 30, 2005(!!!), but has been visited almost 3,300 times!) I was also surprised that unless one knew from previous wiki experience where to look, finding out who was in charge (who the sysops/admins were) wasn't possible. The Community Portal page also currently redirects to the talk page, which removes the opportunity for some community-building and direction as well. It is clear to me that roguelikes have some serious fans and some dedicated programmers, and I'm just concerned that the wiki seems to have been left to sit and has gone fairly stagnant.
Currently on User:R2's talk page there is a discussion about date formatting. No standard has been set, and probably this would have been better discussed in the Community Portal, but because of the small number of daily edits, people seem to have found the discussion all right. The problem is that I think everyone in the discussion has their own preference, and there really isn't enough editor presence to come up with a consensus. And no sysop has dropped by, either. Which possibly would help, because someone has to know what the purpose of the site is supposed to be, which might help in some of the decision-making going on. - Kiefer 06:00, 25 July 2008 (CEST)
