If you've ever wanted to own a weapon from Quake, then Click Here to place a bid on this Quake III Arena Rocket Launcher. Bidding starts at $450, however it is very cool and very well made.

Disclaimer: The rocket launcher nor the seller has anything to do with QuakeWiki. If any problems arise, don't come here for answers. Happy bidding :)

December 11, 2011

  • This new poll is to see just how well QuakeWiki does its job. How good is QuakeWiki for finding information you want about the Quake games? : Victory - Due to votes in the poll, it can be said that QuakeWiki is a great source of information regarding Quake. Quakewiki's database will continue to grow with its editors. It is good that we are on the right track.

October 16, 2011

  • Hey Quake fans, this is Toxic giving you a little heads-up. I've..lost and interest with Quake and the wiki. Its not mean to say I don't like Quake anymore its just I've lost the insperation to play AS MUCH as I used to soooo... Well me and Raadec have decided that if by the end of the year I still don't want to edit then I shall demote myself from the admin team. I shall be replaced by a more active user. That does not mean I shan't ever be on again, i'l try to come on everynow and again to see how the wikis doing. I shall how ever stay a Beurocrat so watch out for me if you are spamming >:). Thanks again for all your wonderful work.

September 16, 2011

September 5, 2011

  • The Polls - What do you think of the new color scheme? - Victory: As of 5th November 2011, there is a landslide of success for the new colour scheme. Apart from a few tweaks that will surely be made as time goes on, we have decided to keep this colour scheme, brown and black, for the very far future.
  • Notes for current colour scheme. For some time I have wanted to base the colour scheme of QuakeWiki on the brown-ness of Quake. This is where it began and so it's fitting for the Wikia to be based on it.
  • The latest poll which ended on 5th September with 13 votes for "It's good" and 9 votes for "Needs work" covered the time since QuakeWiki had green and orange fonts. Now with a much better looking background and colour, the poll has been reset.

August 24, 2011

  • The colour scheme is my main priority at this time. It will not be an overnight process because I think it is time to change the background. Although the Quake 2 sky background was OK and served a purpose, it was only temporary and severely limits what can be done. The orange and lime colour scheme currently present will remain for a short while until a more suitable decision is made. Expect the appearance of QuakeWiki is change many times over the coming days. Also a updated version of the Policy will be completed soon.

August 23, 2011

  • Due to votes in the poll, I have changed the color scheme a bit to see how it goes. Please vote in the new poll, thank you for your votes.
