I think a some form of manual of style is needed. Without it, articles can vary in style, though a wiki should be consistent. I've also found many contextual errors; for example; "you" used far too commonly. This is a wiki; articles should be written in a context of an encyclopedia; articles aren't letters to readers. With a manual of style, editors can fix all these errors without fear of being accused of using their own personal judgement to fix errors widespread on the wiki.

if we wanted it an encyclopedia. we would do a wiki, not a wikia. the point of wikia is to spread info to others in a creative way, not in some boring, old, generic look

I disagree. The main reason people use wikia is because they don't have the technical know-how to create their own domain and/or the money to host it. Wikia is just a site for people to host their wikis for free. Actual sites hosted on wikia are still wikis; thus I feel that they should still follow an encyclopedic style.

I agree with both opinions. 2442cc has a good point about the creativity. A 'wiki' has a recurring theme and can get quite bland after a while, yet a 'wikia' is completely customisable and allows for different themes. I do agree however that we should not use the word 'you' as in 'you should/should not' as it would be an opinion, this should be acceptable in strategy guides as they are telling you what you should do.

useing "You" can be benificial, as tho it is talking to you about good ideas of how to use them.

example:

If you place the barbarian kind near collectors/mines, if can be benifical so that it can protect them.

i guess u could do placing the barbarian king..., but we would have to re-do all of the pages, and in my humble opinion, its really pointless to go through and change it all

It may be (almost) pointless, but at least it will give something for my bored fingers to do...
