It's not that important to me, I use 1600x1200 - it just looked like the
page could fit into 800x600 but it doesn't.

I just had to correct you, just tell me to stop if you don't want that.

Well, they are the most important thing on that page, so they should be
somehow prominent.

Oh, weapons of mass linking! Woe be us! Ehm, sorry, I don't know where
that came from.

Seriously, what do you mean with "mass linking"? I don't want a mass of
links, but every page should be linked to somewhere in the wiki, not
just from one forum post.

I think we mean the same here.

Woe be us! As good as it is, Coyote's docs are mostly about the retail
version of Warzone; it'd need far more effort to adapt it to the GPL
version than just to enter all information into the wiki. And in it's
current state I think there is too much irrelevant information in there.

That which is not good for the swarm, neither is it good for the bee.
