July had a really strong focus on guides for the team. We know that a large percentage of AOU users are here for our knowledge base, and this gives us the energy and determination to try to keep things as up to date as we can.
A lot of time has been invested in aesthetics and making the guides have some continuity so that when you look at a guide you should know exactly what you are looking for. Obviously, we cannot cater for everyones needs.. but we are trying!!
The top 10 guides used this last month were
LoX: Arid Rift
Dust Brigade / Peacekeeper Constad
SL Nano Shopping by Garden
LoX: Ground Chief Vortexx
LoX: Neretva Canyons
Xan Civilization Quest
APF Nano Guide
Corporal Ashley Winstead
These 10 guides combined had 41047 hits over July. I think this highlights why we want to make sure our information is as accurate as we can make it... if we make a mistake in our guides and that many people are using them, it could lead to hours of petitioning!
Fortunately, we were able to fix one of our guides this last month with some testing completed on live with one of the AO Devs. Our guide on the Living Cyber Armor quest had reported an issue with one part of the quest. This issue was investigated by Uragon, Quilluck and myself by doing the questline multiple times until we were able to start getting ideas of where the problem was occuring! We are aware of a few quest guides on AOU where there have been issues reported and are hoping to be able to throw some light on them to help get them resolved.
This has been a very guide biased update, but quite honestly, thats mainly what we have been doing!
