  • Just wanted to bring your attention to this thread on my wall, where Zechariah0311 poses a question about an issue with the Warak'aq (Civ6) page/image. Hoping you can help us find a solution.

  • Hello,

    I just saw you edited the Nobel Prize page to add some historical changes about what the Nobel Prize in Physics used to be before the patch. I am the one that edited out all of these historical changes just to simplify and keep all the pages consistent with one another. The only changes that are included are the ones that affect players differently depending on what expansions or dlcs that they may or may not have.

    For example, the changes to Knight's cost are kept because only people with GS expansion are affected by it, while people without it will play with the Knight at an old cost. Buffs to unique units like Berserker or Samurai are not documented on their respective pages because they affect every player, regardless of what dlcs or expansions they have. Since there is no way to undo a patch to go back on the changes you do not like, I don't feel it is of the best interest of the readers to include all the changes. And since the changes to Nobel Prize affects everyone with GS expansion, I don't feel it is necessary to include those notes on that page, just like how we do not include the change to Mausoleum at Halicarnassus on its page.

    I had this discussion on Mythril Wyrm back in February when GS was out, and that is how we went on with these changes so far, if you have a different take on this, we can discuss it, because, sorry, I am kinda that one guy that has OCD about keeping things consistent and in line with one another. Thanks for your time reading this wall of text :)

    • The Dota gamepedia table looks good to me! I don't see the need for a separate tab since we don't have nearly as many updates, though. Maybe just put the data under its own header somewhere near the bottom of the article?

      As to differences between Vanilla, R&F and GS, yes, tabbed infoboxes would probably be the clearest solution -- but only if there's a way to do it so that it works on mobile, too. I'm afraid the current system used in the Civ5 pages doesn't.

      Rifling (Civ6) seems to get its era from Template:TechnologyEra6 which tries to deduce the era from the cost of the technology. This sounds like a reasonable idea, but apparently the figures are (currently) wrong, then. Would it be possible to just fix that one template, or are there cases where tech A from an earlier era actually has a cost that's higher than that of tech B from a later era?

    • So here is what I found regarding the Science cost:

      - As you know, Firaxis introduced multiple patches making Tech cost more to make the game last longer. The editor that edited the Rifling page didn't do the same for every other tech pages that were affected by the changes. You can see Economics and Rifling, which are supposed to be 2 equivalent techs, but have 2 different costs, cuz the cost of Rifling is the updated one while on Economics page, it is the old one. Since they edited the cost of Rifling, the template, which is outdated, mistakes that the tech may be in a later era. Same thing happens for Steel, Replaceable Parts, which is updated to have the new cost so they are considered by the template to be in a later era, but not Flight, which is equivalent to those two techs, but has an outdated Science cost, thus in its correct era.

      - I suppose this happened before I came to be a frequent editor, because if one page gets updated but its equivalent doesn't, it will bother me a lot. What I suggest is to update the template so that it is in line with the new Science cost, then I will make sure that every tech page will display this new cost. I also suggest that we use the Vanilla version tech cost for now, since the June patch just introduce another wave of new tech costs for GS players alone, sticking with the Vanilla costs seems to make more sense cuz it gives everyone a general and uniform feel of how each tech costs relatively to each other.

  • Fandom is currently trying out a new Walkthrough teaching aid for new editors. Apparently, results so far are much better than expected. After trying it on a limited number of wikis, they would like to expand the number using it. It appears on the rail, you can what it looks like here. Is this something you would want to try on this wiki?

    • Sure, looks cool!

        Loading editor
    • Great! I'll add this wiki to the list then and I think it will be implemented on Monday.

        Loading editor
    • The current testing phase for the walkthrough teaching aid that was enabled for this wiki will be ending tomorrow and eventually disabled. Depending on how it performed, it may become a standard feature on the United Community Platform. Let me know if you have any feedback on things you felt it did well or poorly within the next 24 hours.

  • So in case you didn't see the blog, you can now use Special:Analytics to see useful and interesting traffic data for this (or any other) wiki.

    • Ooh, that's very nice! Thanks for the heads-up, I've been wishing for something like this for a long time! :)

  • I noticed your wiki achievements/badges still use all of the default icons and titles. I was wondering if this wiki never customized them because you just didn't want to, you never got around to it, or you didn't know how.

      Loading editor
    • I actually never got around to it. There's an overwhelming amount of them, and it would seem silly to install only a few custom badges. :( We do have great possibilities of graphics for them, such as Warrior (Civ6) and the like, but it'd take some time to pick appropriate graphics for each badge and to add nice backgrounds for the images...

  • I am adding a Fandom University player to the Special:Community page to help out new or inexperienced editors on all wikis that are willing to accept it. You can see what it would look like on the Diablo Wiki. This is done with ImportJS and so can easily be removed at any time. Would you be ok with this addition here?

  • I've noticed the brown-on-brown links are a little hard to see, especially on even darker backgrounds like infoboxes. What do you think of changing links to a slightly darker color for better visibility?

      Loading editor
    • Now that you mention it... Yeah, I think that would be a good idea. 👍

      And now that we're talking, could you get someone to look at the main page with the tabs? When you open the main page, all the tabs are open at once, on top of each other! Clicking the tab headers hides fixes the situation and only shows the desired tab.

    • My boss suggests reporting the tabber issue using S:C/bug.

      As for the links, Civilization VI: Rise & Fall uses this shade of brown (#692600) in its logo. Maybe it could be a good alternate choice?

        Loading editor
    • Great, I have now reported the issue with the recommended way.

      The "R&F shade of brown" is indeed more readable, you can see it clearly when it's right below the S:C/bug link which is rendered with the lighter shade of brown. Funnily enough the R&F shade looks to me almost the same as the color of our nicknames on this page, but actually the nicknames have the same color as any other links, only in boldface letters.

  • Hi ZeroOne, 

    I am reaching out to you regarding a tech tree image you posted back in October of 2015 (https://civilization.fandom.com/wiki/File:Tech_Tree_(BNW).png)

    I am curious as to whether you made this tree yourself and if so, how you made it. I am looking to make my own proprietary tech tree off of some underlying data and am trying to figure out what software/technique to use. 

    Any help in this matter would be incredibly helpful. Thank you in advance!

    Charlie Bailey
