SEGA RETRO is a new wiki we created to be a wiki for everything Sega, from the electromechanical machines of the early years to today's video games. As such, we have a lot of ground to cover, but the wiki format will only make it easier for us to achieve our goal.
Because you people have lost your minds in the Sonic 4 thread, we have been forced to do an early start. Bear with us.
We don't have your Sonic Retro accounts migrated yet, so just register an account with identical username on http://www.segaretro.org/ and get editing.
Because of this rushed start, we're not quite there yet with migrating the non-Sonic stuff from Sonic Retro to Sega Retro. Contact a Sysop, Moderator, or Administrator to have the stuff moved.
When creating an article for a game, take a look at how other articles are written to get a sense of how to write your new one. This will keep everything up to a certain level of quality.
Manuals are to be uploaded in cbr format. cbr, short for Comic Book RAR, is just a rar file with the extension .cbr. The files in a cbr file are formatted pageXX.ext, where XX is padded with 0s. So, for a 30-page manual, you go page01.jpg, page02.jpg, ... page30.jpg; for a 300-page manual (gasp!) it's page001.jpg, ... page010.jpg, ... page300.jpg. We are doing this to save bandwidth on the server, so get out your Comic Book Readers and get ready to learn!
Files should be named consistently. Use the format gamename_console_region_mediatype.ext or similar. For example, the US Genesis Dynamite Headdy cover should be named DynamiteHeaddy_md_us_cover.jpg, DynamiteHeaddy_MDUSCover.jpg, etc.
We have an IRC channel irc.badnik.net #sega where we will be happy to assist you further.
Finally, a shoutout to those non-staff members who knew about the site before today and have helped us: Cinossu, NikTheGreek, TmEE, Ironfist, Flygon, and Bartman3010. Thanks a lot guys!
