Wiki Home (in General)

I took some time to rearrange Wiki Home, I have a copy of the old format if theres a concensus that the new format sucks. I did it because it came to my attention through talking to many people that most use Wiki for the topics in Advanced, easy accessible at the top without having to scroll, and Basic - for New Players, is also easily organized but with lower priority at the bottom. The only thing removed from the old Version was "The Blacksmith" and "The Tattoo Shop", but we also didn't have topics for things like "Auctions" or "Rentals" anyway, so I thought they were useless since Other pages in Basic link or explain them.

Any ideas or hatemail you can send to me and if you have good ideas, send them, I can take the best of the best, and expecially the popular and make it most user friendly. Otherwise, the new layout should be good.

Looks good, as a general rule basic comes before advanced in lists so maybe basic should be first, (I'm sure advanced players wouldn't complain too much about having to scroll down, on my computer I didn't have to scroll at all).

I put Advanced above Basic because most people will use the Advanced stuff (References) to Spells, Forging Formulas, etc. I think Advanced going first is much more Wise.

I like the advanced and basic thing, good Job Stryfe, nice to see someone new trying to tackle the Wiki changes besides me. ;)

Forging is "basic"? Sure, it's not too difficult, but new players shouldn't be forging until they get more PR, and generally become more "advanced".

And I'm surprised to notice that there isn't a comment on the Forge page to discourage new players from forging right away...

I decided to put it there because Forging Formulas was in Advanced. I figured the Basic section would be an overall introduction to the game, so Forging would need to be atleast hear of, but the Forging Formulas in Advanced to when you actually start experimenting. I also wanted the advanced to be the References, and Basic the stuff noone reallly uses.
