I posted a bunch one useful information regard the locations of Dragon scale, and I have noticed that the page is empty. Why would someone delete useful information? This may be an on going problem. I figured I should contribute as there isn't a lot of information on the DKS wiki site.

I added the stone armor you can pick up in darkroot garden when I noticed the wiki calls the 'Stone Knights' - 'Giant Stone Soldiers'. I was wondering if it would be ok for me or someone else to rename them. And if so, is there an easy way to do it. Like 'change all instance of this name with this name'?

Also, how are people adding the images for the items to the wiki. Screen shot from there TV and uploaded somwhere? or is there some sorta group account to host the images at or what?

Sorry my first wiki im editing.

I hate to be a complainer, but I was kind of hoping for more from the wiki by now. The Demon's Souls Wiki was by far the most useful resource I'd ever seen for that game, and I was hoping the Dark Souls wiki would be thrown together a little fater than this. I know I'm not helping any by saying it, but it makes me sad when all the pages I want to view don't exist yet. :(

I wasn't there for DeS, but i guess it was filled up very much slowly. I think that people prefer play the game than spend their time for the wiki. But I also think that everybody is welcome to help fill it :D.

Exactly right. The wiki can only fill up when people have really played the game. I have found things in the strategy guide that are not quite accurate as well, but this could only be found out by playing. It is very much a work in progress ALWAYS. Even the DS wiki has never been really completed since some things are constantly being found out that are different from what someone else has written there.

The wiki is a community project. Stooge and Ilkar created the guidebook that came with the EU version of Demon's Souls and Stooge was quick to point out that it wasn't just their creation, but that everyone that contributed to the wiki had a part in it.

If you take for instance one seemingly simple thing-how to kill the Hellkite (red) dragon on the bridge above the rats you will see there have already been many edits, simply because some tactics were not working for some people because he became invisible. It takes time to discover and verify the information that is put there and then someone can come along and completely rewrite what has been written which means someone might have to go back and fix it.

Also, it is a very large undertaking. Demon's Souls was big, huge. This is bound to be even bigger since the game is.
I saw you standing there, smiling and I just had to wipe that smile off your face...with my sword.

Hey, I just got a shield that is not listed on the wiki's list of 40 shields.http://darksouls.wikidot.com/shields 8-)

Gargoyle's Shield
Weapon type: Shield
Attack type: Strike

Bronze shield of the gargoyle guarding the Bell of Awakening in the Undead Church. The gargoyle's skin is tough by itself, and perhaps its shield may have been a prop, for it is a rare example of a metal shield that does not reduce physical damage 100%.

ATK
Phys - 62
Mag - 0
Fire - 0
Light - 0
Critical - 100

Param Bonus - D

Aux Effects - 0 0 - -

DmgReduction%
Phys - 85.0
Mag - 40.0
Fire - 75.0
Light - 70.0
Stability - 56

ReqParam - 12 0 0 0

Durability - 300

Weight - 4.0

Treasure left after killing the 1st gargoyle in Anor Londo, with 300 item discovery. Sorry if it is listed somewhere else there but I can't find it. :P

EDIT - Earlier I got a Man-serpent Greatsword. I checked the straight swords tab on the wiki's weapons page http://darksouls.wikidot.com/weapons and this weapon is listed, but is wrongly called Sword of the Human Serpent. :|
