For now it's empty, but I hope you could help fill it up with tutorials, useful snippets and other info.
Maybe we should catalog all of the games onto the wiki.
In a bit of spare time, I could help out.
Probably archive finished(lol) games first, then we can worry about unfinished games.
Cool snippets or common pico "techniques" could go in there too
Sorry, that was me. I was getting used to the editing system!
I've added some random tips to the wiki.
I'd strongly recommend more advanced users to put there as much Pico info as possible so it is easier to get started. Would put up some stuff from the zine, but I don't know whether person who created zine and authors of said articles would want it.
I don't know much about wikia. Can individual contributors not change the wiki settings like colors?
darkhog, can you fix the color scheme for the pico-8 wikia? Easiest would be to match the BBS. I think the color issue is big enough to deter adoption.
Related: felipebueno created this list of Pico-8 resources back in October: https://github.com/felipebueno/awesome-PICO-8
I think the lesson here is every community resource needs multiple admins. :)
Thanks very much darkhog!
I mostly wanted to darken the background. I've changed it to #303030 to match the BBS, even though it is off-palette. I think it's a big improvement.
Links are still Pico-8 red, about which I have mixed feelings. I tried other on-palette colors and didn't like them: too much of themselves, not enough of a Pico-8 feel. One possibility is to go off-palette again, then try to make up the difference in branding with a Pico-8 icon or something. I'll play with it.
Suggestions welcome. Not trying to take over, just wanting to spruce it up to encourage usefulness and participation.
