  • 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 :)

    • Welcome back! I think organizing the titles by tier order and into separate columns for Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm is a sound idea - it'll make the Governors' pages easier to read and more informative for players who don't yet have the second expansion set. I'm not married to the current formatting of these pages and the use of direct link templates, so go ahead and make your proposed changes and we'll see if anything else needs to be done.

      I've been trying to take a more hands-off approach to editing here, but I'll still be around to clean up any incidents of vandalism, fix serious errors with pages, and provide advice or assistance on page overhauls. Feel free to drop in if you have any other concerns or proposals to discuss.

    • Oh thanks, just one more quick question: Do you think we should have separate pages for Wildcard Legacy cards, considering now they are actual policy cards since R&F? I tried to make new pages for them but because, for example, the Monarchic Legacy card will redirect to the Monarchy page, so new pages cannot be created for them. What do you think?

    • I don’t think the Legacy cards need their own pages. They don’t have individual Civilopedia entries and aren’t unlocked by civics, so the fields in the infoboxes either wouldn’t be used or would contain information that’s already detailed on the government pages. Just make sure the legacy bonus for each government is accurate and the blurb about the Legacy card is in the intro of those pages, and we’re set. (Incidentally, I think your edits to some of the government pages combined the legacy bonuses with the inherent bonuses, which would mean they aren’t accurate. If so, they’ll need to be reverted.)

    • Really? I think I edited Communism and Democracy's legacy bonus, I did check with the ingame civilopedia before doing so. I can check one more time

    • So far I don't see any problem, but please feel free inform me of any problem

    • 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.
