I have set up a Wiki for Pirates and Traders on this site: http://www.micabyte.com/wiki/pirates/index.php?title=Home
Currently, it simply contains the information from the P&T in-game manual, wikified (and a few sections that still need to be written). My intention is to replace the in-game manual with links to this wiki, since I do not really have time to maintain the manual in several places.
If there are sections or information you think is missing from the manual, now is the time to mention it.
Also, if you are interested in helping to edit or extend on the wiki (I'm thinking it would be useful to write some strategy guides/hints), feel free to let me know. I do not want to make the wiki editable by the general public due to the risk of vandalization, but forum members in good standing will be given wiki accounts upon request.
