One of the newer players in Illyriad has been an absolute wiki-warrior at Arcanum Illyria over the past couple weeks (with my deepest gratitude for his efforts), and the data-based content available has been growing very aggressively.  I'm struggling to keep up with the editing, revision patrolling, and tweaks to structure and supporting content/templates.

As I do I'm also pursuing a full outline of introductory and intermediate articles, and a basic overview article that will index the per-section introductory ones (which in turn reference the intermediate ones).  You can see a half-finished first-draft example intermediate article in Siege.  After that I'll be re-vamping the main page, then there's the re-write of my calculators for NPCs, integrating them and potentially other web-page based tools into the wiki, HB 2.0 which I've barely started, etc....there's actually a lot going on, and right now most of it is happening on the wiki itself.

Regarding the meatier content/tutorial articles, I welcome any and all expertise or input--don't forget the help page (covering both help with wiki-editing and quality/structure guidelines), as I keep it maintained with frequent updates based on any new mistakes I discover that new contributors making.  I would ask that people please use discussion pages rather than dip directly into explanatory articles I'm in the middle of writing without warning, though.  There's plenty of opportunity for multi-user revision post-first-draft (when the stub indicator is removed).  And if you have educational content to post but don't know for certain where it should go yet (or if I have a place planned for it already), create and maintain it on your user page or a sub-page (like: http://illyriad.honoredsoft.com/wiki/User:Me/My Article) and alert me when you want attention.  (I will treat such articles as works in progress and ignore them/patrol their edits only for violation of terms until asked for input.)

New players can now view a list of training alliances with quick overview and sortable by some important attributes at http://illyriad.honoredsoft.com/wiki/UK1:List_of_Training_Alliances.

(Alliance leaders, please add your training alliances to the list.  You may also want to put up a profile page on the wiki so players can more conveniently investigate further.)

I aim to please:  http://illyriad.honoredsoft.com/wiki/Party_Sizes

The numbers do not apply to faction camps, but data is being gathered to deal with that.
