Making things mobile friendly is a lot bigger a task than fiddling around with some page content I'm afraid. We're running quite old software that isn't exactly intended to be viewed on mobile, and a while ago the CSS we're running broke (alongside the CSS of a whole bunch of other sites, the external framework we were relying on got depublished (I think?) and it left us completely without one; anything to make the wiki more mobile friendly would require substantial changes to the backend.
If you have the skillset and dedication for that, by all means do get back to us, we've been looking to fix that for a while, but everyone we have who can do it doesn't have the time to do so

Hello. I have been visiting this wiki for a few years now, and I would like to update the wiki with all the new information that came with Shin Evangelion/3.0+1.0, as well as clean up/improve the grammar and flow of any articles that I come across. I might also add a few higher-res images replacing the some of the stamp-sized ones (like the ones in the "A selection of images of Eva Unit-02" section of Unit-02's page).

Thank you.

I’d like to be a scribe, mostly to fix minor mistakes I noticed on the wiki.

Do you folks have more to add than just fixing grammar and minor mistakes?

Like I said, I'd like to update pages across the entire wiki with information and images from Thrice Upon A Time, apart from the minor mistakes and such. I can also replace some of the tiny thumbnail images from the show (Like the ones in NGE Unit-02's page), and I can try some better hyperlinking as well. For example, there's no direct way to access the NTE Unit-02 page, either having to go through the link at the top of NGE Unit-02's article, or going through the "quick access" category box at the end of every page. Even that has two variants, a green banner one for NGE Evas and a red banner one for NTE Evas, but the former has a section and listings for Evas from NTE as well (https://wiki.evageeks.org/Evangelion_Mark.09), even though the NTE version is much more expanded and robust (https://wiki.evageeks.org/Evangelion_Mark.04). Some NTE pages even use the green banner one, evidently not updated since 3.0's release. Cleaning up links and redirects etc. will take some time, but I'm willing to do it, slowly if not surely.

Blockio had been working on that but he's been busy. If you could help out with this and all the other stuff you listed, I'd be very grateful.

I'll send you a verification email. You should have it in your inbox soon.

I'm in! Thanks, I'll start contributing as soon as I get free. Would you like me to talk with Blockio, and get up to speed with their work?

Great! Blockio is one of the other wiki admins and an all-around great guy. If you could get up to speed with his work and his plans for the mecha pages, that would be awesome!

Hello! Not really sure what to say here but wanted to edit some pages that didn't have some updated info we got from 3+1 and said to post here for permission!

Would also like to help adding new information from Shin. I think there are a bunch of topics which still need a new site like
SPOILER: Show
Village-3 or new information to AAA-Wunder or Kaworu.

While I don't doubt your enthusiasm, I'm a little concerned about your English grammar. English is the common language used on the wiki , with the exception of the Turkish-language articles written by mbselvitopu. Many, if not most, of the contributors to the wiki are not native English speakers, but their sentence construction and use of English phrases and terms is very good and they are able to express themselves clearly. Otherwise, we have instances of people whose writing has to be rewritten, and that is often equivalent to writing an entirely new article. If you can guarantee that your writing is grammatically correct (such as by posting the text that you want to include in the wiki in this thread), I can add you on.

Welp, I can see your concerns. My English on the last posts has not quite been on an all time high. But I will also point out that my writing on forums is (linguistically speaking) not really something I think about much, while a text for the wiki would of course be much more thought threw. I consume and do pretty much everything in English except speaking to people I know in real life. But still, writing for evageeks would probably be my first time really using English in terms of writing stuff myself outside of school. That being said, I will come around another time and send an example for a text with my next application.
Thank you anyways.

Honestly, if that last post is representative of how you write, you'll do perfectly fine. Ultimately the wiki is meant to be read by everyone, not justfolks with an immaculate grasp on English, so unless you're writing super involved deep dives into the technical aspects and the like, you'll manage

Yes, that last post has me convinced too. Either I or Blockio will send you a registration email once the wiki is back up (there's a server error right now so I can't add you immediately).
