I've scanned the cartridge cover art and instructions of five of the cartridges I received, and posted them under the appropriate sections. Super Alien, Avenger, Mission Impossible, Jupiter Lander, and Star Battle now all have content.

I just uploaded scans of instructions for Speed Math/Bingo Math and Cosmic Cruncher cartridge games, creating new content pages for these cartridges. I also scanned in a "Using the 3k, 8k and 16k memory expanders" guide from Commodore, and added it as content to "Memory Expansion" under peripherals.

Some interesting stuff on your website. I like the comparison between the VIC and modern computers.

I started this:

And hope to fill it out with these:

Feel free to add one if you want. Maybe others can help fill it out.

Are Wiki updates still disabled? I cannot seem to apply edits, or am I misusing the Save changes submit button? :?

How do you even get to the WIKI from within for forum?

The logo at top left used to take you to the "welcome" screen of Denial, where you could jump back to the WIKI, but now it takes you to the main forum table of contents.

It might be helpful of there was a WIKI link from within the forum, or a lot of people, I imagine, won't see it or use it.

Like a banner or a sticky post?

Yeah, like that. But maybe even an icon at the top right that says "WIKI" alongside the icons for FAQ, SEARCH, MEMBERS, USER CONTROL PANEL that already exist there (at upper right of this page).

I just get the impression that a lot of new users don't even know about the Wiki, because it can be missed so easily. I see questions posted that have already been answered in great detail on the Wiki. Also, I suspect long-time members usually book-mark the forum's index page, rather than the Denial welcome page (where the only link to the Wiki exists), thereby bypassing their only reminder that the Wiki exists.

"Out of sight, out of mind" as the expression goes. I think if the Wiki is not made more apparent to users (from within the forum pages) then it won't get used.

I think it is a Jeff to-do

But I will start with the wiki index page here.

Hi,
i've uploaded an animated.gif of "Star Battle" (ingame_gameplay)
But i don't know, how to put it on the right place in denial-wiki.
My goal was to put it to the "Star Battle Page"

Is there a "how to do" on denial-wiki ?
or maybe someone can write a small tutorial how to add/create new games (pages) with screenshots etc. in denial-wiki...
also how to put images to existing pages (like Star Battle)
btw. is it also possible to add video-clips in denial-wiki ? - otherwise i can create animateted.gifs

O.K. - i found a way... hope it is ok.
I added [[Image:Star Battle.gif]] to the right page...but maybe it is also possible to change the "direction" of the gif....

I'm heavily extending the VIC chip page at http://sleepingelephant.com/denial/wiki ... nology_VIC so we don't have to gather all the bits and pieces again and again when fantasizing/planning/coding.

I still cannot apply edits, in particular, I wanted to update my download links on the High Score page now that I restored my web site back to a functional state. Help? :?
