Ok, this is just too cool. Start off as a volunteer doing something you enjoy, then win the lottery and get picked up as an employee for said enjoyment. Nicely done Bilka, keep up the great work. I use the wiki all the time. :D

As soon as I saw the new concrete addition, I started searching for it on the wiki, and was impressed to find it there so quickly. Props!!

Really guys? Dark grey? Just cant stand it anymore, why all fan shirts for all games, movies, etc, you name it, must be black (dark gray in this instance)... You can make it character default orange, make it look like armor from your game, you know, there is more colors in world. I have shittonn of fan t-shirts in my closet, sadly they are all black, because guess what, no other options... =/

Hey, about the T-shirts... im a big guy, and typlically wear 4XLT T-shirts. i know the store doesnt offer these, but is there any way to special order them through your producer? i understand it may be a bit expensive, but honestly, i would be willing to pay $35for a proper size shirt.

congrats to @Bilka -
BUT:
The further enlargement of the throughout excellent "Factorio in game help system",
which is a crown jewel, a own standard by itself (never seen such a gem anywhere in the silicon based Milky Way)
should be your focus - finally.

Congrats @Bilka ! I'm too new in the community for knowing the older wiki, but for sure, the actual one rocks !
See, I never ever though that it wasn't maintained by the devs themselves xD

Together with scripts, templates allow us to partially automate updating the wiki to the newest version, and alongside access to the game's source code, it is possible for me to update the wiki to a new version within a few minutes.
So... you automated the Wiki. Factorio at its finest :lol:
