I like the format, but would it be possible to make the background colors, idk, more spacy?

Do you mean the page background, or the header & infobox colors? The latter use a color scheme derived from the home page while still retaining readability. We wouldn't want to go over the top with flashy or extreme colors, but if someone can work out a theme that's not too obnoxious then I don't see why we couldn't consider using it.

I think we should add more info about the armors. Maybe run some tests to see at exactly what angle plasma penetrates heavy plate? Or at least find out if there's a difference between light and medium plate besides weight.

We need more info about everything ;D

But yes, it would be a good idea to scientifically gather some technical data to put in the wiki. Even if there is no spot for a particular set of data it could always be posted in the forum (maybe have a thread dedicated to the experiment itself to make it a community effort) and farmed later.

Remember, this is a wiki: anyone* can edit/contribute.

*I say "anyone" but for the moment there is a basic user account system in place while we get the thing set up and some help/guidelines for public editing. But anyone can freely create an account there, which is all that is currently needed in order to make edits.

And I think it should be kept that way, if only to prevent people just popping in and spamming crap.

in reply to alric dealing with the wiki colors, i mean like the very back most background should be space, and then the texts boxes are a dark ( probably stary night) color, and the words are white. allows for easy readability, and for some uniqueness :)

Moved experimental results from plasma shots against plating to here.

I think we may have a problem with visibility. I am unable to find the website using a Google search.

I have submitted the URL to the Google machine, so hopefully it will be registered soon, but it is something we should keep an eye on.

In other news, I've modified the old wiki indicating that it is out of service and providing a link to the new one so hopefully that should generate a bit of traffic too.

I keep testing and it's slowly moving up in search results; we're up to the second page now. I think if we every so often plug in various search terms, keep flipping through the pages until we find it, and click on it then we can get it to the first page in short order. The redirect on the old one should indeed help a bit as well.

Any chance we could get them to link it on the official site?
