    Ah, I see that sarcasm is lost on you.

    Also, your wiki? Confusing as all hell, if you ask me. And what's with all the links to incomplete pages?

    No offense, but I think I'll stick with the ones that have more entries. Some information is better than no information, especially when most of us can tell the difference between canon and fanon without having to be beaten over the head about it.

    Unfortuntely my user base is smaller compared to wikia and I haven't been around for as long as they. As much I would like to devote my entire life to wiki editing, its practically impossible.

    Telling the difference isn't the point, its that they add everything they can and unless you know everything you can't tell it apart.

    I agree with you, escyos, about the terrible sourcing on the stargate wikia, but up until a few months ago it was actually much better. Now the sources, if there are any, are usually at the end of the page or at the end of a paragraph, while you know there should be more.

    However, there are also non-canon warnings in some articles and even though using the books and RPG isn't real canon, sometimes it's better than nothing. If you want to write fic and you're looking for names of people/aliens/planets etc it's nice to have some reference. Not to mention that I was clueless about there actually being an RPG since that's never been available in my country but when I found out, I found the pdf files for them and some of that stuff can come in very handy.

    I prefer using the lexicon, solutions, gateworld and wikia (in that order) for information though.

    That's why it's always a good idea to cross-reference several sources when doing research. There are plenty out there to choose from.

    but people don't they see something and take it at face value. If they're happy little (idiotic) wikia editors then they don't dare go somewhere else for fear that they will see how bad their work on wikia really is.

    Example of how idiotic people really are: http://forum.gateworld.net/showthrea...923&p=12752633

    I tried to make a little drawing about Sekhmet and Amun as I have stopped the gameplay video of Stargate SG-1 Unleashed. I know they are not perfect, but they are still better than nothing.

    Last time I have collected all the Stargate SG-1 Unleashed gameplay videos as well :

    It wasn't as bad as it seems. I liked the Lion Guard, the monumental rooms, the voice acting. So it is better than a traditional audiobook as we have got some visualisation.

    Here is my old Jaffa mark chart from 2004 :

    Stargate : Resistance - What is the status of this FPS game? Is it active again officially? Where there any new Goa'uld or Jaffa characters?

    Here I have found some details :

    "Skins: There are currently three skins available for the Jaffa, the standard Jaffa Guard, the purchasable Advanced Combat Pack Sobek Crocodile Guard armour with Cobra staff weapon skin and the unlockable Anubis Guard armour. A fourth skin has been discontinued and replaced with standard Jaffa Guard skin. "

    https://stargate.fandom.com/wiki/Stargate_Resistance

    Mahes is the name of a Goa'uld who rose from the ranks of the elite Ashrak assassins, where he served in the court of Maat, and even became a favored servant of the Supreme System Lord Ra.

    He was later elevated from his status as an Ashrak to become a lesser Lord, as a reward for his dedicated service. Mahes was present with his brethren during their rule on the planet Earth, and held court in the city of Leontoplois. However, his master Maat and Ra had a falling out amongst themselves which led to Ra exiling Mahes, as well as eliminating anyone who was loyal to Maat. Following his exile from Ra's court, Mahes quickly took a cadre of Jaffa, as well as a large number of slaves, in order to establish a colony on a world he named Leonops, after the city on Earth. Centuries past and Mahes returned to Earth once more, but this time in the guise of the Mayan God of Death, Cizin. His actions later inspired the use of blood sports and games as a method to resolve disputes, or to punish enemies. Despite his best efforts, Mahes failed to establish a foothold on Earth and was forced to relinquish the planet, though he did gain a new source of human slave stock.

    Mahes later returned to Leonops where he was tolerated by Ra, and managed to avoid both conquest and destruction, by creating a means of resolving disputes as well as bringing entertainment. This saw the creation of the Court of Judgment on his homeworld, which involved a set of trials and arenas in his capital city which employed Goa'uld healing device along with Sarcophagus technology, in order to bring any combatants back to life. These resurrected foes would constantly battle one another until Mahes' amusement had run its course or the matter had been resolved.

    https://stargate.fandom.com/wiki/Mahes

    Sobek is also mentioned as a Crocodile Guard Jaffa. He was mentioned briefly in "Summit".
    https://stargate.fandom.com/wiki/Sobek

    Mythology of Maahes
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maahes

    Mythology of Sobek
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sobek

    Mythology of Cizin
    https://www.britannica.com/topic/Cizin
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_death_gods

    So I am guessing that the Jaffa mark of Maahes is on the Jaffa picture which is similar to the logo of the game.
