Walkthroughs Update - June 2015

By MC0REBE, 1 year ago
Hey all,

We're back with a monthly round-up that has been a lot slower then expected, but both myself and the assistants have been working on- and off-site to provide more information on certain walkthroughs that need updating. Obviously, this is a very long process but I hope that - together with all of you - we can make TA one of the best places around when it comes to very detailed and structured walkthroughs.

Recently, it has been brought to both mine and the assistants' attention that there has a bit of a 'walkthrough bashing' in regards to a few of the older walkthroughs. Unfortunately, times change and the owners who have written walkthroughs back in 2011, for example, are no longer able to frequent the site, and the same can even be said for newer walkthroughs. Seeing comments such as "TA walkthroughs suck" don't only hurt my feelings (because I spend a lot more time here than all of you can imagine), it's sad to see that this only happens on statuses and not on the Walkthrough Discussion Forum. The forum is there for the whole community to be able to comment on the walkthroughs and provide feedback (good or bad!) so that we can help to ensure that our walkthroughs are up to the high standard that our community deserves.

It's impossible for our team to check every walkthrough with every patch/update that comes out for all of those games and updating outdated/wrong information due to that is certainly not an easy task. I can assure you that we are still actively scanning ALL published walkthroughs, whether they were published in 2009 or in 2015 to make sure that all of those walkthroughs can get the updates that they deserve. Our team relies on the community to inform us about those cases and it's a relationship that has to be built up from both sides. If no information is given to us, we can't know the need for a walkthrough update if we don't play the game. Following that, we can't start searching for someone to update that specific part and the guide will remain in its current state. I can't stress enough that we do want the walkthroughs to be as good as they deserve to be and we have many great writers contributing to TA, but there's no limit on the amount of help we need. Please, if there's any walkthrough that you feel isn't up-to-par with today's standards, either comment in their specific forum or send one of us a PM.

To end that 'rant', I want to inform all of you that we have been going through the walkthroughs to which 'old' overseers had been assigned. Instead of giving them the Overseer role, we have now made them Contributors to reflect their work on each specific walkthrough so that all of those people can get credit on the Contributions badge. Due to this change, I asked Rich to implement a new role: Management. If one of us has that role, we do not get false credit as an Overseer/Contributor and it should ensure that the numbers on those badges remain fair for everyone. I do need to point out that we have yet to go through all of the walkthroughs to which old managers were assigned. The numbers on their badges might still be wrong, but we are hoping to change that by the end of this month.

Now that the wall of text is over and done, let's start the summary of all published walkthroughs in June 2015! There have been 34 published walkthroughs, of which 20 were ported. All of the latter are once again marked with an asterisk (*).
