However, it is not right to restrict or ban the amounts of edits people can make to non-mainspace places. We are a Wiki, but we are also a community. As BlueHighwind said, if we are only a Wiki, we should remove all talk bubbles, userboxes, walkthroughs and the DNC. But I have no desire to see that happen, does anyone else?

Again, what would should do instead of telling a user "make X number of mainspace edits in Y days or you're banned", we should encourage mainspace edits themselves. One thing that could help with that is a decent [[Final Fantasy Wiki:To-Do List|To-Do List]], because the current one is IMO, poor. There's work to be done all over this Wiki, we just have to tell the people how to help!

One thing we could do, and this is something they do at the KH Wiki - make a template space on the main page for articles that need work. Articles that are stubs, need images, restructuring, and so forth. If we can put up a sign that says "yo, we need help with these articles", people ''will'' help. But if we just let people register and expect them to find mainspace stuff to do on their own, well it's no wonder they'll just stick to the forums.

I haven't been regularly active in a while so I haven't been here to see this 'decay' in the edits to the wiki, but oh well, I'm here to give my opinion on the matter.

I must say that I agree with Diablo, Yuan, etc: this is a wiki, not a forum. The forums/talk pages are a nice feature but they are not the purpose of this site and should be used spareingly for entertainment and should be used for improving the wiki, however, this doesn't mean to say that I think that you can't use the forums for fun.

Heck, the main forum topic that I edit(ed) is(was) EoS which doesn't improve the wiki in the slightest, however, that was pretty much the only forum that I contributed to an worked on the wiki otherwise.

The wiki is for holding and displaying final fantasy information and that is what we should visit this site to do, it always help to have a few odd distractions to keep you ammussed but you should not do them exclusively. It would be like going on your computer to do school work and then spending all your time watching videos on Youtube. However, when I do school work I watch the occaisonal video every now and then so I don't get bored, see what I'm saying?

So, even if this means nothing to some people I think I have put my opinion on here nicely: This is a wiki more than it is a forum and should be treated as such.
