Introduction (By Tchernobog)

In the past year I did something which I would never have thought possible when the Blood Wiki was started. I was able to purchase Blood from GOG.com and have it count as a Linux sale. True, I was and still am a little disappointed in how the game has been wrapped, going to the trouble of creating my own custom launchers in order to solve some of its deficiencies, but all in all it was a hell of a seismic May for me. Anyway, here at the Blood Wiki we have not been slouching either. We have continued our drive for higher quality images and more polished articles, creating a Good Articles category in order to highlight that work. The Blood community has also not been resting on its laurels. 2015 was the year in which Blood II: Revelations was finally released (kind of), a new version of Extra Crispy was unleashed upon the masses, and news of the XL Engine came screeching back to bloody life. Add that to your calendar for 2016.

There were also some setbacks, one of which I hope to rectify today. Back in September we had a rush of vandalism due to spam bots, forcing us to block all unregistered edits on the Blood Wiki. The honey flow was still in full swing, and we were all under too much pressure to deal with such a strain at that point. You try carrying over thirty kilogram honey supers in the hot sun in a bee suit, or try uncapping and loading hundreds of hive frames into radial extractors, for hours on end, and then come home and deal with that. I have been meaning to restore that functionality for some time now, and with it being the eighth anniversary of our founding, now seems as good a time as any. The ability to make minor edits without an account is an idea we cherish, even with all of the added strife. Hopefully things like our newly updated MediaWiki engine will help in that regard, but for the moment I am more than willing to jump back into the trenches once again.
