  • News 12/3/08 – Welcome to the new Shards of Dalaya wiki, now hosted on the same servers that run the forums and our other lovely services. This should hopefully increase uptime, and most important, if something goes wrong, allow us to fix it in a timely manner. You'll need to register a new account, and to cut back on spam, email confirmation is required before you can edit anything. Sorry for any inconvenience on that one. --Tyrsell
  • News 11/6/08 – Another periodic update! Additions on the wiki continue at a healthy pace. The Wiki Sysop could use a serious hand though, and if you have the time and interest to become a Sysop (IE: Spam Warrior) then PM me on the SoD official forums. Candidates will be discussed with the other Sysops when a good few have volunteered. --Tyrsell
  • News 7/1/08 – We've broken the 10,000 page mark! 10,000 articles of mostly not spam! Keep up the good work, and don't be afraid to contribute. Help is easily found. --Tyrsell
  • News 5/2/08 – Work continues on cleaning up and standardizing old pages. Check out Policy for information on how you can help too. --Tyrsell
  • News 4/1/08 – A potential item/categories revamp project is on the way! Read up and make your opinion known on the Talk:Items page. A revamped raid tiering project is also starting. Talk:Raid_Tiers to make your thoughts known! --Tyrsell

  • News 1/14/08 – I have added Tyrsell to the moderator team. In recognition of his hard work on the wiki! --Tempus
  • News 1/9/08 – There was a major SPAM attack last night. I've blocked all the offending users, but the pages still need to be cleaned up. If you'd like to help out, you can see what changes were made yesterday using the Recent Changes link in the navigation pane. --GuiardoTuneweaver
  • News 12/11/07 – Heyas! Just want to point out, we still occasionally get spam, but we tend to clean it quickly. If you do delete spam text, please add the above if a spam page. If you create or edit a page, please put something in the remarks as far as what the change was (i.e. Formatting, Items, something short & sweet). That helps so that we know you are actually adding things, rather than a spammer trying to delete your hard work. Great jobs on all the adds so far! --Kerolynne
  • News 10/31/07 – Happy Halloween! I just want to say thanks to GuiardoTuneweaver & Kerolynne for all their help in cleaning up as much existing spam as we could find and keeping on top of the few pags that are still popping up occasionally. Please, take the time to make a page or update/reformat an existing one so that we can make the wiki a better resource for everyone! --Tempus
  • News 10/08/07 – We have already begun to turn the tide on the spam infesting the Wiki. keep up the good work and don't forget to add [[Category:Delete Me]] to any page that needs to be completely deleted from the Wiki! --Tempus
  • News 10/06/07 – I have added two additional Sysops so far. Once we see where the work load falls on getting the spam removed from the site we may be adding a few more. --Tempus
  • News 10/05/07 – Well there are a few of us that have assumed a Sysop position around here to try and curb this little spam infestation we have been having lately. It will take some time to slow the flow and repair all the damage, but please keep editing it out where you find it and always try and find the last known good version of the page to restore it to. Please do not just blanket delete the entire contents of an article unless there is no other option. --Tempus
  • News 10/29/06 – Hoo boy. Hey everyone. I just found out about the problem concerning the front page (thanks to an email from Wiz I got 9 days after the fact because my email had been down). I apologize for things going to hell, I had no idea. I haven't been checking up on the site because of a lack of time to play SoD, and I just assumed things were running as normal. I'm going to lock the front page tonight, just as a precaution. I'll get more accustomed to permissions for mediawiki, and give any logged in user the ability to edit the page if that's possible. I'll end this with saying sorry for the crap, and I hope to see everyone in game when I get the time again (Tombor the Shaman btw). If anyone has anything they need to contact me for, email me at webmaster@angrygamer.net and hope the junkmail filters don't pick it up and bury it with loads of junk. Also, fantastic work on making the site the way it is in looks and content. You all done made me proud. Later. --Tetracell
  • News 10/16/06 – Added New feature on items check it out, hope you enjoy it. Alot of work to finish it if you wanna help check out discussion page on items -Lorwen
  • News 9/3/06 – The sod.camongrel.de spell site is simply becoming too outdated; as SOD continues to develop and change, we could all benefit from a working spell database. In an attempt to develop such a database on SoDWiki, please help contribute what you can to the new class spell page: Class Spells. Currently, the page is quite barren, but if any adept Wiki'er could help start with a layout that would definitely help others who wish to contribute information on the actual spells. Peace, -Hooden
