    This is true.

    Though I kind of hoped they'd make it look like the blog after buying it.

    Cool, but I'm still wondering why there aren't any actual people articles. I mean, Robin Walker and the rest of the team are as TF2-related as it gets and I'd assume they'd warrant an article, but they're just linked to vague off-pages. Same for the voice actors.

    Too bad. The default MediaWiki theme looks the best.

    They can't write much about a man who procrastinates all day in his underwear surrounded by hats, can they?

    I think the Valve corporate bio page does a pretty good job. Not sure how Robin would feel if we started adding stuff like that.

    I know the OverWiki does it, but not sure if we will.

    I've taken it upon myself to improve the Custom Maps page. As it is right now, it's nothing more than a glorified links page.

    Sorry to say I deleted that touchdown map off the page Randdalf. Had no picture, and the download link didn't work.

    En Ex, can you shed some light on the wiki being sold, then being officialized issue?

    From what I heard, the head TF2Wiki admin wanted to sell it to Valve, but Valve were all like "Hell we ain't buying it, but we're still having it" and the head admin was all "OHSHI" so he sold it off to someone else, made a nice profit and now the person who bought it is fucked
