It's done!
Thanks to everyone, specially Frank.

Old post:



 :warning: WARNING! :warning: don't get confused with current wiki (TikiWiki) update, see the relevant topic here. This topic is about the ancient wiki (MediaWiki -- this) that was shut down years ago and might have some pages left behind.



Stepping forward!

I'm opening this topic with purpose of helping people who is interested in improving our on-line manuals to port the wiki texts from old wikies to Simutrans-Germany Wiki.

If you have any trouble or need to say something, post in this topic.

Instructions:

1) Open any wiki text of the following old wikies:

http://en.wiki.simutrans.com
http://es.wiki.simutrans.com
http://it.wiki.simutrans.com
http://pt.wiki.simutrans.com
http://fr.wiki.simutrans.com

2) Search for corresponding wiki text on Simutrans-Germany Wiki, on your language:

http://wiki.simutrans-germany.com

3) If:

-- the corresponding wiki text exists: compare both texts and complete Simutrans-Germany Wiki text.

-- the corresponding wiki text does not exist: copy the text from old wiki and create a new wiki text on Simutrans-Germany Wiki with proper format.

4) After you have successfully transferred the text, blank the old page and put a note warning that text was transferred. A sample of a successful port: http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Traffic_congestion_control

-- if you don't have an account on the old wiki, you can ask here for someone to blank the page for you.

5) Post here informing us the pages that were transferred.

- blank the old article and place a notice with a link pointing to corresponding article on Germany Wiki.
I transferred http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Traffic_congestion_control to http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_Traffic_congestion_control as a new article, but I do not have an account on en.wiki.simutrans, so I cannot blank the page...nor add a link

EDIT BY IGOR: blanked pages!

I did it by myself. Thank you.

http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Traffic_congestion_control

EDIT:

Frank, I've just signed up for an account. I see there's a Brazilian Portuguese language and Portuguese language. Is it possible to merge both languages? Both are almost the same. It's like "color" and "colour" of the English.

I have moved http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/SimuTrans_for_Transport_Tycoon_Players to http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_TransportTycoon. I have no edit rights at the English wiki, and ask if anyone can blank the page there.

Note that the tutorial in question has not been updated since 2007, so if anyone feels like polishing it up a bit... that would be most welcome. Please modify  http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_TransportTycoon though, not the page at the English wiki.

EDIT BY IGOR: blanked pages!

I've set up a notice about the wikis moving at the English MediaWiki start page. All editors should do this for their language wikis, too.

Code: [Select]
<table border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="2" style="border: 1px solid #FFA4A4; background-color: #FFF3F3; border-left: 5px solid #FF6666; margin-bottom: 0.4em; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; width: 80%; font-size: 1.6em;"><tr>
<td style="font-size: 95%; text-align:left;">
Simutrans wikis are moving to a [http://www.simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_Index single wiki]!<br />
You can help [http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=4681.msg46113#msg46113 transferring the contents].

One more pages transferred:
http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Translation
to: http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_Translation

EDIT BY IGOR: I've blanked the pages. Thank you.

EDIT:I've added some missing parts on Game Options, now it's totally transferred:
http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Game_Options
to: http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-editpage.php?page=en_game_options
Maybe I'll add other thinks, but now there's no need to have it on both wikis.

EDIT BY IGOR: Seems the pages were not transferred totally, so I can't blank the old pages yet.

Re: Tranferring Wiki texts to Simutrans-Germany TikiWiki (please?)
« Reply #16 on: August 28, 2010, 05:12:57 PM »
Please someone could kindly transfer the article Creating_addons (http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Creating_addons) to Simutrans Simutrans-Germany TikiWiki (http://wiki.simutrans-germany.com)?

The simutrans.com still points to the old wiki. I think it's interesting to have it in new wiki. (I'm working on simutrans.com update)

Well, I have started: http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_AddonsOverview There are still some images to be uploaded etc. Though I think the page needs reworking to fit into the pages that are alreadly on the tikiwiki...

I have verified that all content on http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Destroy/Remove is included on http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_remover adding what was missing. The en.wiki...-page may be blanked by someone with editing rights there.

EDIT: Likewise with http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Capture; the information is found on http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_take_screenshot. Please blank en.wiki-page.

EDIT 2: Again with http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_FastForward; information stored at http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_FastForward

EDIT 3: (Running out of synonyms *grin*) Yet again with http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Inspection_Tool; info on http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_inspection

EDIT BY IgorEliezer: I've blanked the pages. Thank you.

EDIT 4: All information on http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Finance_dialog that is not already on http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_finances seems to be blatantly wrong... (loans?, in Simutrans? if there where any, it was before my time....)

EDIT BY IgorEliezer: See my post below.
EDIT2 BY IgorEliezer: Blanked.

Thank you Sanna. Good work.

Now about this:

EDIT 4: All information on http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Finance_dialog that is not already on http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_finances seems to be blatantly wrong... (loans?, in Simutrans? if there where any, it was before my time....)


The only parts that might be useful on tikiwiki are:

"financial metrics may be reviewed to allow you to make strategic decisions" and
"Customizable graphs on the dialog allow you to visually look at trends from as far back as 100 years"

The rest can be trashed. :)

EDIT:

The pages that are already transfered:

Noted, and tikiwiki page (slightly) modified, to include the gist of the above - not so sure about the 100 years, feel free to add that tidbit (along with instructions on how to display such a time frame to http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_finances) *smile*

Further: Info on http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Convoy transferred to en_Vehicles_and_Convoys.

EDIT: Info on http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Way_type included (with heavy purging) on http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_Roads_and_Railroads

Verified that the information from http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Freight_type is included in http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_Goods.

BTW: Adding info to the tikiwiki is easy, but if any of you still feel that this is too much of a hurdle, feel free to add comments on the wiki page(or post them here!) about  errors and crucial (misleading) omissions on the pages.

EDIT 1: Added information from http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Speed_bonus into the Goods list description on http://simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=en_GoodsList.

Just saying:

The old Portuguese Wiki http://pt.wiki.simutrans.com has 50% (maybe more) of its content transferred to new Portuguese Wiki http://www.simutrans-germany.com/wiki/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=pt_Index.

NOTICE: I've just removed the old Wiki from simutrans.com front page (http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=3434.msg65625#msg65625). This means that visitors will no longer be able to find the old wiki from there.

Please, check out to see if there still are pages that weren't transferred to new wiki. Post the link so people can make the transference.

I've just realized some members are transferring the texts from the old French Wiki to the new Wiki. But our site still provides a link pointing to the old wiki (see: http://simutrans.com/help.htm#Tutorials_guides_and_references).

I'd like to know if I can change the link to the new address.

I would say wait a bit.  The French texts on the new wiki are new, and are not taken from the old wiki.  Also the old wiki still has more info.

Edit: PS: I don't know the person who did the French translations on the new wiki.
