Hello everyone. For those who don’t know me I go by Al and I’m a former Chat Moderator. I resigned from my position because I had become relatively inactive and wanted to be able to speak freely whenever I popped into the wiki. Recently I’ve returned to the wiki and it’s come to my attention that the wiki is in far dire straits than when I left it. The database as a whole is largely incomplete, there are few users contributing to articles, glaring issues are being allowed to go unresolved, and members of the staff are making large changes to the wiki without community input. I feel like this post has been a long time coming, so lets get into it.
To say that our current database is sub-par would be fairly generous. Both our Dark Souls 2 and …Read more >
The Dark Souls Wiki is in dire straits. Let's be real with ourselves, guys. Membership has decreased significantly, the pages are as bad as they were back when I first joined, and there's a backlog of hundreds of pages in need of serious editing.
After months of being an inactive lurker, I have to come to you guys with my blunt observations.
The pages are absolutely terrible. There's already a backlog of about 400 pages marked as article stubs. Now you guys keep creating pages and tacking on the Incomplete tag, so there are now about 150 of those. That's 550 articles that fall below standards. That's over 10% of the pages! First and foremost, you guys need to get a serious plan implemented for fixing pages. Working independently and without …Read more >

So, since I've been around since 2012 (longer than anyone who is still around today), I see it as my duty to pass the story of this Wiki down. Hopefully one day, one of you will have been here for so long that you can add on to it. Here goes:
Long ago, the Wiki was created. It was abandoned at its conception, as the founder of this Wiki had as many edits as Seath has scales (that's zero). It was in a pretty bad rut for a very long time, before a group of fearless editors came along and discovered it! I'll refer to them as the original three musketeers: Fingyer, the fearless leader, Brainwasher5, the muscles of the operation, and Balagog gro-Nolob, the brains of the operation. Together, the three of them started editing this Wiki, and got it…Read more >
Hi all. Not sure if I am even in the right spot of the wikia now, but I just logged on to use chat and it says there is no more chat anymore.
Can someone explain what happened to the live chat room, or possibly link me here to it?
Perhaps the main page link on the chat button is broken.
- The message I get clicking on the chat button:

Any tips on not dying in ten seconds if you can't use any magic and don't have any soul vessels left?/Any way to not have to go through a whole dungeon again just for another chance?/Any place to farm human effigies that aren't Shrine of Amata (where they've stopped spawning)? I only have foyur left and haven't beaten Throne Watcher and Defender yet either.Read more >

I've decided to step down from Content Moderator today. I took this position to make this Wiki great again and shit, I no longer have that drive, and so I don't use my tools anymore. I am resigning because I have other things to focus on, and I know I'll be gone for a while and so I am doing this now so I won't have to worry in the future.
Havel the Bot may be given to Mats or LaVey or disabled, for now, he will retain his bot status.
I'd like to use this opportunity to give a quick shoutout to Red, Ohgo, Olly, and Alchie, without them, I don't think I ever would've gotten this position. And now, it's time to end this blog with a fun fact, I was a content mod for 199 days!Read more >
