SiN at Wikipedia
OK, so I know this is the SiN episodes forum, but I'm sure that there's a lot of fans of the original SiN here.

With the release of SiN episodes just months away, I thought it would be a good time to do some work on the original SiN article at Wikipedia, anyway, I've done quite a bit of work on it. However, there are gaps in it I still cannot fill. One of the reasons, being that I don't have a copy of the game at my current address, so I can't check out all the facts on the backstory which were on the manual. (Blade's Journal).

Here it is - SiN wikipedia article
And here it is before I touched it - Old version

Take a look at them, and add what you can. Remember, anyone can edit wikipedia, you can add or change facts, create new sections etc.

Here are some points which I'd like to add to the article, but don't have the resources to do so. I'm missing the whole SiNtek Vanity backstory in the article, if someone could fill that in, it'd be great. I can't find any previews of the game, so I do not have a development history, I don't have things like prerelease hype, anticipation and delays mentioned. I think they'll go well in the lead section. I've also only got a few reviews to create the "Critical Reaction" section, the only print magazine is PCZone, which gave SiN 91%. (I actually have that edition in print, but it's also online as linked to in the article). If anyone has any reviews in print that they'd like to add to the article, then it'd be great, because I'm slightly wary of the semi-professional website reviews. I've not really mentioned the multiplayer component of the game, maybe Spry does deserve a mention in there. Oh, and if you click on the link to the article on SiN: Wages of Sin, it's absolutely rubbish, so maybe someone can sprice that up.

Take a look, have an edit. Thanks!

Yeah, your version is certainly better, and it talks about the original premise of the story.

Discussions about the following segments of the universe is also a nice touch.

I'll look over the WOS and the nonexistent Sin: The Movie article and write some stuff for that, tomorrow.

Here's the link to my Wages of Sin article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SiN:_Wages_of_Sin

I don't know how much formality I have to / should include. By that I mean links, screenshots/artwork or related stuff. Is this done by the Wikipedia community or can anybody give me directions what to do?

Will write up the Sin: The Movie article later today.

Oh, and what genius posted the Sin Episodes article? It's great, and very detailed!

The german article about sin still sucks a lot, i began to edit it an added some charakter description, will continue to fix leaks about the story and features soon. The english one is a nice piece of work, very detailed [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: SiN at Wikipedia
Good work there MadMax, I'll give it a tidy up some time this week. It seems pretty goo, with a lot of information in. You might want to tone down future edits, some parts seem a bit over-enthusiastic, like describing the gameplay features as "remarkable" and weapons as "spectacular". It's not that I don't agree, but being an encyclopedia, it's gotta remain neutral.

I'm not good enough at German to read the german version, but looking at its length, I'm sure there's some good stuff there.
