Taking a Step Back
Hello Everyone,I am Fargo84, Air Marshal on the the wiki. While I'm not the most active user on the wiki, I do wish to take care of it. Unfortuneately, the wiki has been in a state of decline in the past months to the point of near abandonment. While I cannot promise to be here everyday because of my duties to our partner wiki, the WWII Wiki, I will be running a complete overhaul on the wiki. Images will be renamed, code will be imported, layouts will be changed, templates will be deleted. If anyone is confused about the changes, please consult me before reverting the them. Below is my list of goals for the reorganization, whenever a goal has been met, I will promptly cross it off the list.
