  • Hello, long time no talk, hope everything's okay with you! I've gotten back into the good swing of editing here. A FEW THINGS. First, I did a minor reversion, shifting hyperlinks to a shade of green to match the wiki's theme. This is just a spitball for now, given blue's been reigning supreme for quite some time, and obviously, can be changed if there's issues.

    Second, I completely missed out on telling you (And I feel bad for it) that I did make a Turok Wiki Youtube channel for videos and stuff, mainly for the sake of archival purposes. I've posted a buttload of videos from there already for the 2008 reboot, and will add onto it in the future. Would be a good place for wiki-specific gameplay, too. Ideas, ideas. The point being, if you wanted access to it, the email, password, etc, just ask me, wherever. I don't know if you're keen on posting videos or if you'd rather not, but that lane's open. Always just an option, not a forced thing, obviously.

    Thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiird, I whipped up a quick redo/replacement image for the wiki's backdrop. For two reasons, one, this has been the wiki's background since I began here, 5-6 years ago, so I don't think a change will slaughter us. And two, it's not properly scaled for monitors, nor made properly, so it's not only poorly upscaling, but also artifacting due to low image quality. It'd be good to replace it and have a crisp new image. Said new image will be located in a link here. Preview it in the admin theme editor, and do tell me if it'll do or not, or provide feedback. I don't know your monitor resolution at all, so, lol.

    Finally, I'm sorry for my absence lately. I know what it feels like to be kinda left alone to edit yourself, and the loneliness can suck the life out of one, so, I do apologize for not being here and around to be a support member. You've done a good lot here. Have gone above and beyond many times. And even though I haven't been here for it always, I do wanna say thank you for it. For every moment you spent improving and helping the wiki. It really does mean a lot, for what it's worth.

    • Hey, Preda. Glad to see that you're still around. Regrettably, I haven't been the past few weeks. A couple of life events happened that completely killed my drive to do almost anything computer-related, and I'm still trying to bounce back from it. I'll be back in the swing of things eventually, but I'm not sure how long it'll be. Thank you, though, both for checking in and for your kind words.

      Let's see here:

      1. As far as I can tell, there'll be no problem with the green links except for some of the navbox banners/backgrounds/whatever you call them. The links don't work well with some of the colors (blends in too much with green, clashes horribly with orange, etc.) and could benefit perhaps from being turned white or something.

      2. The backdrop looks good on my end. I'm running 1920x1080.

      3. I think I ran across the YouTube channel a while ago? I'll keep it in mind; I have a number of promotional videos from across the franchise that we could potentially upload, but it's not a priority to me, at least, as long as the original uploaders keep the vids up on their end.

    • It's really fine. Stuff happens. Take what time you need. And obviously don't push yourself. Don't want to sound like Captain Obvious, but you know. Take care of yourself, first and foremost.

      To the second points, I'll do some hyperlink changes. I did the 2008 Turok's first, since you legitimately couldn't see them, but the green flew over my head for the others. Eck. And good, to the background. Glad it works. And you may have. I upload stuff that's already uploaded for the sheer sake of convenience. To me, better to upload when I for sure have the files and don't need to worry about the other hosted links dying for whatever reason. Stuff can happen on a dime. Just my rationale, lol.

  • Hi I am doing a project based around Turok, though I'm not very familiar with the storyling around the many iterations. 

    I was wondering if there was a simple history of Turok that I can read over to familiarize myself with the background stories of the series.



    Thank you very much!

    • Hey Operative Im, 

      Sorry I haven't gotten back with you. I thought I had submitted a response, but I suppose it didn't save.

      Everything you have provided thus far is amazingly helpful and I would like to think I have everything I need for now, based around the original Comic series. Thank you so very much! 

      I can't think of any unanswered questions that I may have, besides any little quirks or character traits, that made the series stand out. 



      Thank you again! I truly appreciate the assistance you have provided!

  • I think you should change it from Game disc to Game disc / cartridge cause of the GBA version and all. http://turok.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Turok4RetailEditions

  • I've sent you a message on the Turok Forums that you might find usefull. Also, i'm thinking of joining the wiki, cause lets face it, im probably tge worlds biggest Evolution fan. The lengths i go to to get some obscure DVD's with rare footage, to spending 20 bucks just to buy and scan  Evolution advertisements, to getting rare promo items and inhouse merchandise, to buying a spindle full of Betas, it all comes down to loving the game like nothing else. Not to mention that i provided some of the only existing Turok: Evolution E3 2002 footage in the world, recorded in the Acclaim V.I.P Lounge with David Dienstbier demonstrating a Beta in real time. I have tons more footage still left to upload, but if i can join here and use what i have to educate fellow fans, id have more incentive to upload regularly.

  • Hi Operative, just a quick note that one of the links in the top navmenu seems to be broken. The top-level "Turok" menu links to a page that has been deleted without redirect.

    Looks like editing the menu's first line from
    *Turok (Disambiguation)|Turok
    to
    *Turok (disambiguation)|Turok
    would fix it.


    Cheers!

  • Hello Operative Im, thank you for all the great pics that you have uploaded in this wikia!

    By the way, since you know these games better than me, can you tell me how many colour of blood are in the Turok franchise, aside from red and green?

    • Thank you for posting. I am sorry that you think so. However, if you are unhappy with the way things are being administrated, might I suggest making use of your time elsewhere? Perhaps start your own wiki?
