With the new(ish) navbar at the top of the Wiki, I thought it was time to get the forums working. Forum:Index should now serve as the hub, with three subforums: Forum:Construct for discussions about the wiki and content (it's something we're all building after all), Forum:Zero One for technical help (whether machine language or otherwise) and Forum:Matrix for discussions about the Matrix series.
I've also started it off with an idea on a new systematic approach to the Wiki (please have a read and post your thoughts there). As always, let me know if it's working, what you think, and if you have any ideas for better names for the forums!Read more >
In honour of the 2012 Olympic Games, World Record has been edited up to Featured Article status, as can be seen on the main page.
It has meant the creation of a new template: , which will be brought into use on all the Animatrix films as they are edited up to the same standard.
So if you have a favourite Animatrix film, try the template out, and edit the rest of the page while you're at it: let's get them all up to speed!Read more >

If you're having trouble viewing it, then try refreshing or clearing your cache; failing that then post below, and let us know what you think of it either way!Read more >
I've finally found a suitable background image! From the Disconnected Forums, the image is tiled but merges seemlessly into itself. The only thing that could improve it would be if it cascaded.

If there's a better image out there then feel free to post here, but for the time being I think we've more or less completed the theme.
I've been rereading the films' scripts and trying to work out a more accurate history of the Matrix universe recently. Questions like when was the first One made? (i.e. did he appear and found Zion at the start or end of the third Matrix?), and how long did the first two Matrixes last for? (Agent Smith says "Entire crops were lost" to Morpheus about it in The Matrix with no indication of how long this was).
There is also the issue of dates, many of which we have on the wiki don't seem to add up, the only ones I think connected to our own (A.D.) history are:
- Morpheus says to Neo that sometime in the early 21st century mankind made the first AI, which spawned the race of Machines (and says they they live closer to 2199, a guess later shown to be…
