  • Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I added a short lede on the main page. This is extremely important for reader comprehension of what the wiki is about as well as the site's search engine optimization on Google. I also expanded the local navigation so that readers would be able to access useful pages much more easily.

    There are a few other things I'd like to do with the main page, but I wanted to get your opinion on them first as they're a little more substantial.

    • Having a slider on the main page is actually not seen as a "best practice," because the JavaScript involved with the element slows down loading times slightly and confuses search engines. Also, the way it's being used is a mix of content like news and general terms (e.g. factions), both of which already exist elsewhere on the main page. Would you mind if I scrapped the slider and simply linked to its contents if they're not already on the main page?
    • The sections on factions, modes, and maps are aesthetically good; the fact that images and links are integrated like that is really helpful for readers to associate names faster, and helps their navigation. However, having to scroll that much means that most readers will not get past the first section, so the bottom ones may as well not even exist. The game modes section could definitely use more columns (10 is an unfortunate number, but 5 columns and 2 rows would actually be okay). The factions and maps sections could likewise be positioned horizontally instead of vertically, perhaps with each element shrunk slightly, so that the page isn't as long. If it's still too long, then the Discussions module could also be moved to the right rail, which is comparatively short.

    Do you have comments or ideas here? The main page is where a huge number of readers start off on the wiki, so it's important that it's designed optimally. Let me know! Thanks. :)

    • Sure, sounds good.  I would say before you do this, let me see it first.  So set it up then copy me the code and I can run it in a sandbox see how it looks first.

    • Great! Yes, I can show you a mock-up first. I'll get started this weekend or this coming week; shouldn't be too complicated.

  • Hello! I did some edits with Black Prior a little while ago and I was wondering if I could add something to Hitokiri's Trivia/Hanatakatengu armor set. The armor set depicts a Tengu, a type of Japaneese yokai/spirit. I noticed a brief description about how the armor resembles a tengu, however, I feel like it could use a little more wow, if you get what I mean. So heres what I wanted to add to the trivia:

    - Hitokiri's armor set "Hanatakatengu" depicts a Tengu, a japaneese spirit that is said to control wind, swordsmanship, flight, and possession.



    Would that be acceptable?

  • Someone is salty about Zhanhu, and chose to make pages about "Zhanhu needs to be nerfed." Thought I should report to you about such.

    • Instead of making a new thread, I also wanted to ask if we could actually use the arcade profile shots for any of the images on the wiki. Especially the special profile pic for your own Hero can look cool if used in certain pages (seeing that there are no more animated profiles for the new Heroes).

    • Yeah, sounds good

  • Can I Change/Add Traditional Characters For Every Wu Lin Pages ?

    • Certainly not against it.  Depends on how you do it.  If you mean for the dialogue section, then go right ahead.

  • Hi, this is about the Black Priors weapon on the wiki. Now, I'm 90% sure now that the weapon he uses is a bastard sword, not a long sword. I'd be happy to add it to the trivia but im either too incompitent to figure out how to do it or i simply don't have the permissions. How do I aquire the ability to edit the character trivia?

    • Go to the search bar and look up Black Prior/Main.  This will single out the main page where the trivia is.  After that, just edit it like any other page.

    • Alright, I changed it. If it would be alright I'd like to do a more in depth explanation of what the characters (mostly knights since thats what im educated in)  are wearing. On account of not having too much experience with this site I'm unsure if I need any specific permissions to do so.

    • Oh, that was you.  Little note I may have changed it back.  Put misnamed weapons in the trivia section.  And ubi has a lot.  The weapon section lists what ubi has on their official website. 

      And you can put the knight armor/garment stuff in the trivia section too.  No special permissions needed.  If issues arise we can undo and inform you.

    • Alright, thank you!

  • Hey there!

    I'm Tess and I'm a part of the Vanguard team (not to be confused with the Vanguard heroes though). I noticed that some of your infoboxes aren't using the new, portable infobox version. Most of your Infoboxes are already portable, so I just wanted to offer to convert the last ones to the new version. There are a lot of benefits to using the portable infoboxes, and I can ensure that the converted results will function identically to the current version.

    If you have any questions, or if this is the wrong place for this discussion, please let me know. Thanks!

    • It looks good.  I might say make it so taht changing the rank at the top changes the rank at the bottom (but it is a draft so you probably already planned on that).  I'll also take a look at the deletion pages see what we can get rid of.

    • It is possible to put images into separate panels, but it is not recommended. There are a few technical reasons for that. Beyond being a UI / UX "bad idea", they are not expected to be noticed by ImageServing. They're also lazy loaded. The first image ImageServed is the one with the best quality that is not lazy loaded.

      Unfortunately, having them in a pre-made gallery is the best I can do.

  • Just letting you know I think it's a smart idea you're separating the event gear from the common gear section. I'd been thinking about it for a while but wasn't brave enough to overhaul it!

  • Sending a brief message about user Iamyaboijones.

    I'm sure we can mutually agree that we appreciate help around the wiki, but from what I see, some of the info they add are unnecessary or extra, one example being the Dawn Empire article I removed as it was nothing but a stub. While some of their edits make pages such as the Viking and Knights look more "professional," I find them to be filled with just as much clutter as pointless information. I don't know about you, but I don't exactly appreciate their efforts as much when some of the info are starting to look redundant or overdone (one example being "kill counts" which we don't know of, along with the government tab that includes 4th wall breaking date of resurrection which are highly speculative).

  • Hey, I noticed that the category Category:Armour currently redirects to Category:Armor. Neither category is actually categorized itself, but regardless it would be good to use a single category for this since they talk about the same thing. Do you have a preference as to which one should be used? I can update the links with my bot as needed.
