    D2 @ wikipedia.org

    Ok, first off i honestly hope wikipedia doesn't count as a competing site:)
    Anyhow, it features this entry on D2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diablo_II
    It is a lengthy text, and for the most part a worthy entry for our beloved game.
    Otoh, it is poorly edited and it is marked for a "clean-up" to meet wikipedia's standards. I tought if some of you has the experience with the wiki interface it would be a neat thing to do (I have wikid some in the past, but at a less serious wiki, with much lower formatting standards)

    Also some parts (the class-specific parts) are slightly shallow and might (or might not) contain false info, maybe it would be nice if some vet (or two) out there proofread it. The one thing i spotted is the necromancer part saying that CE is more awesome in 1.1 than before because now its damage scales up with the number of players. As far as I know this isn't true, but i was not certain enough to go ahead and edit.
    Either way Diablo deserves a cool wikipedia entry, so if you guys have any good ideas to add there, i suggest you go ahead. Note though, that wikipedia is no place for expressing your opinion so you should try hard to remain subjective and informative.

    Yeah, CE doesn't scale but is still a very good skill, it just suffers the same penalty as almost every other skill. There is only one skill that scales with player settings and that's static field.

    I think CE scaled in the beta (at least the first one). That's probably a good sign of when it was written.

    Good point, Artagas. :thumbsup:
    I have wrote some articles for Russian wikipedia, so I could translate the page about our favorite game too.

    AFAIK there are a lot of people here from different countries. We could translate the page into different languages together.

    Right now I see only French and Polish translations, and all of them are uncompleted.

    I thought ATMA was on there too, but I can't seem to find it by searching...
