A couple of thingsEdit
Firstly, I think we should update the slider on the main page, I was thinking the same slides but instead of Triads having Sun On Yee as the triads page is pretty empty, I think we should get some new images for it too so if there are any you have in mind let me know.Also I've been playing around with themes, I like the current one but could you give me your thoughts on this one. I'm not sure about it but red fits with the Sleeping Dogs theme better.
- The background was the same, I only changed the blues to reds. I'll give the changes you suggest a go but with headers I can only have one solid colour, having custom headers is very complicated. Tom Talk 14:44, September 6, 2012 (UTC)
- So like this?
- Thanks! I really like it too :) thanks for the advice on the darker gray, it looks so much better. I've also updated the infoboxes so they fit the new theme, oh and I changed the Wiki icon so that there isn't any white around it. The theme is complete! Now that we've got the theme sorted we just need to get to work on expanding articles. Tom Talk 16:08, September 7, 2012 (UTC)
Also I'm thinking about asking Marijus to promote us to bureaucrats. Considering the fact that we have taken this Wiki to a new level I don't see how he could say no. Then we can get started on promoting any users that impress us and building a proper community. What do you think about that? Tom Talk 16:12, September 7, 2012 (UTC)
- Well there isn't really much difference between being an admin and b'crat, it means more on larger Wiki's with more staff. I know we only really need one but our input to this Wiki has been pretty equal so I'd prefer us to have equal rights. Tom Talk 22:08, September 7, 2012 (UTC)
Greetings from LiendaxEdit
Hey Ray! It's your ol' pal and partner, Liendax! Strangely enough, I've actually recenty played and finished Sleeping dogs, it made me remember how you mentioned and recommended it to me months ago back on the LA Noire wikia. If I can spare the time, I will make Wei Shen my first priority and help out with the other character biographie. In the meantime, you and Tom kick arse!! Liendax 19:29, September 8, 2012 (UTC)
Ray, I've made a start by editing Wei Shen's page. I've essentially done the events of Sleeping Dogs for his biography and I am exhausted. It needs to be proof read, grammmar correction, spelling names and internal linking. I will review and clean up the other sections, especially the personality section. After that I'll move onto to completing other characters when I can. Already feels like old times, happy editing! Liendax 22:57, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

Promotion and Wiki FeaturesEdit
I think the Wiki is good enough to be promoted, the admin toolbar has a promote option which requires a description of the game/wiki, if you have time could you do this, I gave it a go but it just ended up sounding really cliche. I'm also going to request some promotion from Wikia, I'll let you know how that goes. Also what do you think about activating Chat and Message Wall? Tom Talk 16:57, September 15, 2012 (UTC)
I had a look at Conroy, Ponytail and Ming. All good and the quotes you've been adding are great for the articles as well. Funny enough, we were editing Conroy at the same time but your edit was finalized, don't matter though cos you did a good job. Jane Teng, Tong, Sifu Kiok and Jackie Ma will be my priorities at some point, as well as adding general quotes, especially for Wei. Happy editing and feel free to recommend priorities or cleanups.

Sorry for the late reply, for the past 5 or 6 days the Wikia editor hasn't been working for me. But yeah that looks good, I'm going to be adding all the current DLC info tonight. Tom Talk 16:03, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

RE: I'm BackEdit
New section Edit
Hi Ray. I have been thinking of mentioning the pre-release promotion of Sleeping Dogs through viral marketing, which involved the release of three videos (two live action trailers, one TV ad about the Hong Kong Police Academy passing out ceremony) made with real life actors that caught the eyes of many people. Apart from creating a page, where would you suggest to put on its link?Ozcc (talk) 18:22, January 4, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion, bro... :)
Sorry, it was just a mistake..
Hi, I wanted to ask you something....How can I add a quote?....And I expanded the article, "Zodiac Tournament Pack" a bit. Hope you like it. :)
- ―--Abs to Ray
Thanks, It Worked!Edit
Thanks for teaching me how to add a quote.. :)..... And from now on, I'll think twice before adding a category.....Looks like I'm making your job harder by making so many mistakes...I'm really SORRY!...Please don't block me from the wikia.
Game Guide App Edit
I'm going to be working on the site tomorrow in an effort to build an entry for our Game Guide App. As such, there may be some tweaking of the category structure that would result in better flow on the site and allow a cleaner app interface. Keep in mind that admins have access to the app page in case you might want to change anything around later.
Once I'm finished, I'll let you know which categories are being used for the app and make a forum post letting regular users know. It hopefully won't take very long; if you've got any questions, please don't hesitate to poke me.
