The data seems to be correct but the links to the pages I've created are not working. Whenever I click one of those new links that I've added, they take me to the page creation page telling me that the page does not exist (even when it exists)
I fixed the links for ya :). Turns out the names were case sensitive, so I just had to set them all to lowercase.

Thanks for the fix man, I never thought that they were case-sensitive.

Incorrect values are a persisting problem so far. Thankfully there's an item-browser which draws its values directly from the source-code so no diving is needed. I guess values are not so important and even if they are, the item-browser's just for that. Well, some can correct those but a lot of time is needed but not much effort, as the item-browser is always up-to-date.
Seems like really what we need is to write up (or modify an existing) wiki-bot to automatically update the wiki values based on those in the source code (or if that's too difficult pull them from the item-browser, I don't have too much personal experience dealing with wiki-bots). That would ensure that both of them were always up to date.

There's a script which does this for the bash/cut armor, and I actually got around to (mostly) fixing :). Some armor values may be off by 0.5 (I don't know how to make the bot round down decimals), but for the most part items display mostly correct armor stats now.

Where is this script?

And could it be updated to include all the item Id values? I updated the templates to include a link to the item browser.

What the wiki really needs is a DF like versioning system. So each page has a version: 0.C, 0.B, 0.A etc. thing at the top. (For releases in the future).

I'm looking into how much work that is.

But as nobody has edited the wiki apart from me the past 2 weeks I assume im alone on this.

Edit: have found the creator of the update bot. Have send him an email.

Noticed these remarks. Now added to the correct templates on the wiki.

More an FYI for anybody reading this I made links to http://www.wiki.cataclysmdda.com/index.php?title=Evolve in some (dunno how many) pages. So if the guide about upgrades is made, fix the links to point to that one.
