Well... I apologize... I didn't mean to sound like an ignorant hater. ( '>-<)
But really, when I said that "the game is literally the same as the last one" I really meant it. I didn't notice any notable differences to the original game from the small time I spent playing it aside from the freemium aspects of the game. I just believe that people can use the former game's pages while advancing through this one. But yeah, that might not be true after all since I didn't completely finish the game thoroughly and I'm just being ignorant and biased due to my disappointment of the game. I HOPE this is the case...
Unlike the majority, I prefer Kairosoft's freemium games over the paid ones, but this game was a hard slap in my face, and it hurts...
Hmmm... Been a while. Anyway, since the last update, I've made changes to pretty much every page regarding Grand Prix Story 2. Changes so far:
Added a lot of missing info to the Parts, Vehicles, Sponsors, and Structures pages.
Made a "fans" table on the items page which includes all fans in the game and their gifts, it still needs a lot of work to do though. Please check the page out and tell me what you think.
Made a new "training" header on the Staff page that discusses training in detail with a new training table that lists all the training methods in the game with their details. I can now safely say that the staff page is 100% complete and error free.
Made a new header on the Raffles page that looks kinda dull. Please check it out and tell me what you think.
That sums it up. Now there are 2 major issues here though:
1. The Races page. Specifically, the "Grand Prix Races" header. I barely made any edits to that page, they were just grammatical oriented. Aside from the ancient terrible edits that fill that header, half of it are false/misleading info. As for the Grand Prix list? Saying that they're half empty would be a compliment; as those barely include 10% of the game's content, let alone the races table which, literally, includes like 1% of the overall content. The issue here is not even fixing the errors, but that providing the necessary data is, pretty much, almost impossible. I suggest we delete those ugly tables for good; as I doubt that anybody searches for or cares about those extreme details anyways...
2. The "Aura" header on the resources page. It's the last remaining relic of PichuYang's terrible editing alongside the Races page. The aura levels are clearly false and are based on nothing, and there is no proof regarding what affects the initial aura stage of a particular staff whatsoever. The header is also filled with a lot of out-of-context lines. I suggest we delete the whole thing or copy paste the aura header from the tips page and edit it into a bullet format. Or actually... Move that to the Staff page because that would be MUCH more fitting.
Okay, that's all I wanted to talk about for now. Oh, over 400 words... I'm such a nerdy geeky autistic girl, I mean, who even pays attention to the number of words used in a random post on a message wall...? ( -w-)
Sorry for late reply, viewed the message and forgot to reply.
I think the fans and raffle sections seems good, and the training table looks nice.
Misleading how? And I think the tables are fine; it's nice knowing what races there are if nothing else, and people can slowly add to it as they find stuff. We could remove some of the columns, but even if they don't have much info currently some are kinda nice to know (like wether a track has multiple laps are not; a track could look short but you could actually need a car that handles better on long races). Someone added a lot of the info, so I assume it's helpful to someone. It might just be nice having some idea how the game is laid out if you've never played before.
Auras never depend on the characters stats in other games, so agreed that sounds fake (and can likely easily be disproven). I agree it should be on the staff page. I think having a list of what can be affected is nice, and even if not as a bullet list, if the color of auras matter, it would be nice mentioning the order of strength and the impact stronger auras have.
I've dealt with the aura problem by now, nothing remains of PichuYang. The Aura header has been moved to the Staff page in a much more polished and to-the-point way. Please check it out. The tips regarding aura remain on the Tips page, however, as it should be.
As for the Races page, I've deleted multiple false information here and there and PichuYang's usual out-of-context content. It's like they were editing the pages just for the sake of editing... Anyways, there was also a lot of totally blank columns and rows in different tables, and I thought that deleting them was a no-brainer as they literally provided nothing, but you can always check edits out and see for yourself.
I left the "Gand Prix Races" table as it is (minus a few blank rows lol), but I still think that it's generally a bad idea for reasons mentioned above. But hey, more content is better than no content... :P
I'm now editing things for other games, which, surprisingly enough, had a lot of misleading and false info despite being relatively old (referring to my Bonbon Cakery edits mostly), and of course, grammatical errors. Do people actually bother researching stuff before adding false conclusions to the wiki...? False edits do more harm than good, as displayed in the comment sections...
I will make this year a turning point for the wiki (hopefully). :3
I don't know enough about the game's unlocking for races to know what causes them to unlock / if it would be helpful to know; the other 2 columns seemed useless unless they actually gave special rewards (which they didn't to my knowledge). Seems fine to me.
I'm generally of the opinion not to remove info unless it's completely pointless / detracts from the page; someone bother to add it, so in theory it's useful to someone. So long as the important info is near the top then shouldn't hurt? Although I never played the game, so I don't know how useless the info is or not. Based on the first one, knowing the number of laps can be useful, and being able to see what races are in a specific GP is good for planning.
Sadly with edits it's hard to tell what info is added with no/little research; on one hand, sometimes you can never know for sure, so it's better to put something, but on the other hand people just put down their first impressions sometimes. These games need a wiki since they can be tricky to figure out, yet the misinformation does no little harm. And since you can't prove a negative, it's hard to confidently remove it sometimes.
Well keep up the good work! And happy new(ish) year!
