  • Hi, the page for Warak'aq for some reasons has its picture gone. I think I saw this problem popping up once in a while, last time with the St. Basil's Cathedral. Can you teach me how to fix that problem so I won't have to bug you once I run into them? Thanks

  • The disambiguation page of Sydney Opera House was vandalized, I am not sure how to fix it.

  • Hi, I am back to editing the wiki after a few months of MIA :)

    I really want to make adjustments to the pages of the governors, as you already know there were a lot of changes to them when transiting from R&F to GS. Right now, in those pages, the titles are in alphabetical order, not in the tier of the title order, and old R&F titles are mixed with new GS titles. All of that can confuse our readers, especially when considering that we now only have pictures of governors' titles in R&F and not GS (I am sorry about this, I really want to help with photos but I am not very proficient at it).

    What I propose right now is to separate titles according to tier, from default titles to tier 3 ones, and we separate R&F from GS (similar to the effects part in buildings and tile improvements that I made when transitioning from R&F to GS). The main problem I run into is that right now, on the governor's pages, the titles are using direct link templates to their separate title pages. I am not sure if you are ok with (or if it is even possible) if I rewrite these pages without using direct link templates and just with normal text. 

    If you make it down here, thanks for reading these walls of text :)

    • Well, a quick check of the in-game descriptions of each Legacy policy card reveals that the information currently in the infoboxes is accurate. The problem is that the XML files (which I usually consult first to resolve doubts or conflicts) have a very convoluted way of listing the information in question.

      In any case, if there are no factual errors, I'm satisfied.

  • Hey Mythril Wyrm, I previously mentioned to ZeroOne that a darker shade of brown (#692600) for links would make them more visible. He seemed to agree, but never changed them. I wonder what you think?

    • I support using a darker color for links for the same reasons you state. Not sure when I'll have time to make the change, though...if you're willing and able to do it, go right ahead.

    • Ok, I changed it.

  • Hey there,

    am I the only one experiencing these weird images withing most of the wiki pages? Its really disturbing in my opinion.

  • If this isn't too much of an inconvience, may I ask if there is a way to tell how many edits+ which edits have been made on a page, who made those edits and how many edits have been made on this FANDOM wiki in total?

    • The first three pieces of information can be found by opening the drop-down menu next to the Edit button for a page and selecting the History option. The last can be found here.

  • Hey!  I've noticed a fellow contributor recently added a 'Strategy' section heading to all info on techs and civics. Now, if memory serves it was me that wrote that info, and I tried to make it sorta 'fictional', extending the game world idea of how this tech/civic came to be invented, and how it contributes to development. Now, at the time I was aware that this kinda repeats what the Civilopedia does... but the Civilopedia gives us a purely historical background, and I wanted to connect this background with the actual game developments enabled by the tech/civic in question. Which didn't work out very well, since the devs are constantly changing the tech trees and what each tech/civic actually does...  Which brings us to the new heading. As I see it, 'Strategy' is meant to be an input into how we would best use the item in question in the game. It certainly complies to this interpretation in all other types of articles (unit articles, buildings, improvements. etc.). And the old info definitely doesn't fall into this category. 

    So.... while I appreciate that guy's effort to maintain styling consistency with the rest of the wiki, I think we now have a major disrepancy between the headings of the techs/civics and the info written underneath. I think the best way to go would be to describe in what circumstances researching the tech/civic would be most beneficial, and, (since you eventually end up researching most, if not all techs/ civics) when and for what purposes you would rush or beeline it. Although this could also change in the future if the devs reshuffle the tree again...  Let me know what you think about this. Soltan Gris 16:19, June 3, 2019 (UTC)

    • I like the edits you've made to Pottery (Civ6), Animal Husbandry (Civ6), and Mining (Civ6) so far - I think the content is a good fit for the Strategy sections without forcing you to throw out all the lore you put so much time and effort into writing. I'm attempting (yet again) to enter into a state of semi-retirement from editing here, so I'll let you and the other active editors expand and tidy up the rest of those articles. Keep up the good work, and let me know if you have questions or need a sounding board for ideas. :)

    • Thanks! I'm sorry to hear of your 'semi-retirement'...  but I understand completely. To tell you the truth I wouldn't have the time, or nerves, to make all these micro-edits to fix grammar and styling errors. But I think I'll try to at least finish all the techs and civic edits (I'm glad you like what I did with the first three).  See you later!
