Why does Construct 2 need a wiki?
- With the team at Scirra hard at work on both maintaining Construct 2 and also developing Construct 3, it's up to the community to pool their knowledge together.
- Much of the information currently on the wiki wouldn't really be suitable as tutorials (which are really more like "how-to" guides)
- The forums are not a substitute for a well-maintained wiki. You can only sticky so many threads before it starts to get overwhelming. Additionally, as Construct is developed, older informative threads on the forums may no longer be applicable.
- The wiki can act as a complimentary reference to the existing manual.
Wikis are easy to maintain, update, and can grow as Construct continues to grow. Having a community-centric wiki for Construct 2 that is constantly being updated is a win for everybody.
I'll be updating this thread from time to time to post updates and articles. I chose to host the wiki on WikiSpaces rather than something like Wikia because I wanted the wiki to be ad-free.
