  • New Player Experience
    • Perhaps the tutorials should be reworked a bit, and made more prominent on the main page. Agree / Disagree?
    • I'm working on the QuickStart guide for 31.16, all feedback appreciated. Maybe someone could try following my instructions, see where it gets them and what I've forgotten? GhostDwemer 00:01, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
    • Should we include a link to Mayday's graphical compilation on the main page? The default tileset can be more than intimidating for some.
  • Overall Site Improvements
    • What should we improve?
    • There may be odd kinks to work out still on the website, as I do not program / have experience in PHP (Ruby on Rails is what I do my web programming in).

  • Just noticed "MEGABEAST_CAP" in my world_gen.txt file, and wanted to know if reducing it would allow me to gen a world with global population counts above 1000. But I can't find anything about it on the wiki. In fact, there's a lot of stuff in that file that I can't find info on in either "Advanced world generation" or "World tags" pages, but those are both marked "exceptional quality"... should they be?
