The web has a lot to offer, even so far as game FAQ's are concerned. However, I find it completely inconvenient having to Google search for the info I need. Then when you find a decent FAQ, you have to sift through a large fully text page.|
The InGameDex is a public location for all in-game data to easily be collected and viewed. This project has just started, and we are looking for video game enthusiasts who would like to contribute. IGDx covers every game, every item, every boss, every palace, every monster, etc.
InGameDex makes all of this data linkable through a MediaWiki engine, allowing users from all over the globe to input and assit in making the InGameDex even more expansive. (View the Secret of Mana page to get an idea of how content is organized and displayed.)
Text isn't all we have to offer. Add image files, such as sprites and screenshots. Embed video playthroughs that you or someone else has created and uploaded to YouTube. Any bit of information about a game, in any form, is helpful to the greater cause.
We also have a nifty template setup. You can quickly find a nice wallpaper sized image on Google, and throw together a 760x120 banner image for the layout of every game page. Check out these pages for examples: Metroid, Tetris, Katamari Damacy, and Legend of Zelda:TP. Simply upload your template images, and then go to our Theme Submissions page for me details. :)
If you have any questions, please feel free to post them on our InGameDex FAQ page. ( That way they're kept archived nicely.) Or, you can just reply here.
We're adding content everyday, but there is so much to be done. So, if you can help, please do! User account or not.
Thanks for your time and attention!
