The Secret of Evermore Fandom wiki has recently seen new life and hundreds of pages and images already posted along with detailed descriptions of the majority of areas and mechanics of the game:

https://secretofevermore.fandom.com/wiki/Secret_of_Evermore_Wiki

It would be great if more of the Evermore community could also get involved, not just with editing for simple mistakes but also for adding details which haven't been covered yet or images to reflect maps which have no images yet etc.

Although there are a number of websites which have a lot of information already, we want this wiki to be the most complete.

Seems like a pain to navigate for info, as in so many clicks behind click behind even more clicks, one of the reasons why I still use RPGClassics for so many "classic" games, is because the info I'm looking for is all right there presented on a single page in a nice condensed list/chart form with a nice side bar to even easier navigating. For example;

http://shrines.rpgclassics.com/snes/soe/callbeads.shtml
http://shrines.rpgclassics.com/snes/soe/enemies.shtml
http://shrines.rpgclassics.com/snes/soe/walkthrough.shtml

My suggestion going forward would be to work on that, layout... at least IMO if you want people to use it and have it because the "definitive" resource or whatever.
The internet went from being the information superhighway to my opinion echo chamber.

You make a solid arguement but I do believe that the layout of the SoE wikia is how any wikia should be. It is a bit less 'convenient' to open new pages but these pages to provide the reader with a lot more info. If everything would be condensed on one single page, it would be an overkill of information and it would not be pleasant to read or look at.

It would be a good idea to add a small section with a condensed list and a bit of info. This could be used to provide basic and most relevant information.

I'm not saying that each item shouldn't have it's own page, with info/lore/hidden tips/etc. that's cool, but the home page of the wiki/landing page should be an absolute convenient way of getting around a wiki, one click max.

Maybe it's a flaw with Wikia? But these ones a better home page demonstrate;

https://terraria.gamepedia.com/Terraria_Wiki
https://diablo.gamepedia.com/Diablo_III_Wiki
http://wiki.ultimacodex.com/wiki/Main_Page

There is no good reason why I should have to go Main Page > Items > List of Charms, to see charms, or
Main Page > Equipment > Armor > List of Armor, to view armor

These pages;

https://secretofevermore.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Equipment
https://secretofevermore.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Armor

just seems redundant/pointless, and should not even exist, what does those pages offer that this page doesn't offer in a better covenant way? It just adds clicks.

https://secretofevermore.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_Armor

What I'm getting at in this example, is it should go something like Main Page > List of Armor or Main Page > List of Equipment (then combine both list of weapons/list of armor into one page.) and just get rid of the "middle man" clicks.

But then again I'm sure Wikia want people to click their pages 20 times.

I remember that I did some edits in the Evermore wiki related with some missing and wrong enemy locations some months ago and some trivia articles (like the purple Raptor in the sewer maze of the Volcano or the Mechaduster when you reach the Main District with the rocket the first time)
