Hey there! So I have 2 requests for extensions that I consider necessary for the wiki, and 1 that I would consider optional but I would highly recommend. (I did write out something much longer and detailed, but on resizing the screen to make it larger...it was deleted. D: ) There are TL;DR's for each extension, and links so you can look at them yourself. If you would like to look at the available optional extensions, see here.
DynamicPageList (DPL): Lets you display information from other pages based on their template name, categories, etc. onto another page. Cuts down on duplicate info that needs to be edited on multiple pages. Super incredibly handy, but it does require some work to get it started properly and some knowledge to use it properly as well. It also means a lot of pages will have a ton of extra categories; HOWEVER, categories can be made “hidden” so they aren’t displayed regularly.
TL;DR: display info from one page onto another to cut down on duplicate info on multiple pages that all need to be edited when something changes.
Variables: Lets you tell a template (or anything really, but templates are generally where it’s used) to display/change/add something based on input from another, regular variable. I use this extensively on other wikis and I can say it’s super fantastic and a great help when you want to change something in multiple sections, or display a different piece of content when you’ve input certain things.
TL;DR: makes template stuff easier by letting you change stuff by inputting other stuff.
Recent Changes Patrol: This is more for Admins/Bureaucrats (Admin+ I’m gonna call them here cause it’s shorter). Right now, this wiki has ~1k pages, which may seem like a lot, but many of the other wiki’s I’ve worked on have 30k+ pages (one of them has 350k, but its for an MMO and is kind of a special case). It’s also for a new game that’s had a lot of hype (and unfortunately a lot of let downs, but those are being worked on at least) so there’s a lot of people who are going to drop by to look. Some of those people aren’t going to be the most “savoury” types, and will probably leave vandalism. There’s also the people who make...let’s call them interesting edits, that may need to be changed to display correct information, etc. What this does is show a “!” for all Admin+ beside new edits, which means it has not yet been patrolled. When you look at the edit, it will have a “mark as patrolled” option. Basically, you can review new edits, and mark them as having been reviewed, so other Admin+ aren’t also looking at the same page and you know for sure that it’s actually been looked at. Only Admin+ can see the !, and Admin+ edits do not show up with the ! (they’re expected to be trustworthy enough to receive that status, so they shouldn’t need to patrol their own edits kinda deal)
TL;DR: helps make Admin/Bureaucrats jobs easier reviewing new edits. Super awesome. Super helpful.
While we're trying to build this page, we should compile advice for Endgame support. My first suggestion would be to align your gear perks with your play style. For example, when playing Storm, I rarely use my weapons; instead, I wield "Elemental Rage" as a primary because it stacks elemental damage on Elite hits, up to 100% bonus elemental damage. My secondary is a random piece of gear that has great additional support perks. In this case, I'm using "Retaliation of Garretus" because the random rolls give me additional fire damage and gear speed. My Gear pieces are "Ten Thousand Suns" (Upgraded Burning Orb) and "Venomous Blaze" (Upgraded Flame Burst) which both do fire damage. I'm also stacking "Mark of Ruin", "Elemental Conduit", and "Token of Daring" which increases elemental damage by 70% and fire damage by 5%. All of these were selected to boost my gear damage output, which is almost required at that level. Anyone else have a special gear combo they've found that can fold GM2 enemies?
I changed the basic description of the Monitor, as the ingame lore does not present him as the overall Ruler of the Dominion, but instead merely as a Special Operative of the Dominion. It is stated that there is more than one Monitor in the Dominion.
I'm an avid wiki editor that tends to just dive in, but there's already a lot of work going on and I don't want to mess anything up. So instead I will offer some suggestions that I would appreciate feedback on before I get started.
1. Gear pages. These are already going well, but we can increase the benefits of these pages through the use of the Tabber extension (already on the wiki). This would allow for doubling (or more) of the infoboxes while only displaying one at a time, which is beneficial for the weapons that have multiple rarities and damage values. As a side note, it's also possible to make the infobox color change depending on the rarity displayed.
2. Infoboxes. Good start on these, but I would seriously suggest layered templates (eg. templates within templates). This lets you make mucho template goodness for each section and when you combine them it makes it easier to change one section. Instead of searching through the very, very long strings of wikitext, you can just pick the section. It's also very beneficial when creating a page template that will use all of the same formatting etc. as is displayed on every other page for consistency. If you would like me to go into greater detail about this, please ask!
2a. Categories. Fandom doesn't require as much care when it comes to categories as Gamepedia, but its still possible for people to put in the wrong categories or forget entirely. Human error and all that. To remove that entirely, you can add built-in category addition to a template so it'll do all the work for you! Kinda the greatest thing ever tbh.
3. Challenges. I'd like to get these set up, but in my own opinion each challenge should really have it's own page. However, some of the challenge names overlap with other things (take the Critical Expeditions for example) so I was thinking that either each challenge should have `(Challenge)` after the name to diferentiate, or just after the ones that are duplicates.
4. DPL Extension. I'm not super great with this yet, but for a wiki that's likely to become HUGE it's probably your best bet. What this extension does is pull information from other pages based on various page info (like categories, templates used, etc) and display it on other pages. AKA, you type a few lines of code and it'll generate massive lists in various formats that you can setup yourself. Want to display all Masterwork Storm components on a page? Sure, you can type it all out by hand, but this will do it for you AND update itself automatically when more is added. Very helpful, and means you don't need to constantly update and add info to pages.
Sidenote: don't put redirects into categories ;) they don't need categories but will still show up in the category and that can cause confusion, especially if the category is the destination page. I noticed on the Category:Masterwork that it's displaying its 2 redirect pages there.
Anyone have any ideas for the Masterworks? Like, it's a category, but there's also a Masterworks page that is in the Ranger Components category for some reason. It's a little confusing.
I know the game has only been out a few hours (a little longer if you had the 10 hours from EA Access) so it might be a little soon to ask, but are there any significant effects to dialogue choices?
The on page for the Fort, it says the location can change with player progression. So far I think I've unlocked a statue from faction reputation, but the only dialogue choices I've seen reflected anywhere have been with Sayrna and Matthias referencing past conversations occurred.
I was curious after speaking with Max, the current owner of the cursed bar, whether there would be any repercussions for picking certain options after hearing some of the...odd circumstances surrounding the bar's previous owners.
I tried checking the wiki pages first to avoid being "that guy" who just asks a question with an easy answer elsewhere, but I did not see any info on the pages yet.
I have noticed across the wiki that we have statistics on equipment such as weapons and the like that include values that change depending on the level of the equipment. I would like to see about standardizing the statistics at a certain level while stating which level the statistics are for or at least labeling the current statistics with the level they were taken from. I can go about doing this for most equipment, however if someone has a better idea please speak up. Thank you.
Update: Shelving discussion. Solution found.
With the recent addition of a Javelin infobox, I've made the weapon infobox as well.
If there are any changes people feel need to be made to them please go ahead and edit them.
All Javelins have been updated with an infobox and currently the Hammerhead assault rifle has an example of the weapon infobox.
Also, if someone is good at CSS, could they help spruce them up a bit? (i.e. adding Javelin icons to the top of corner next to the names etc.)
Let me know if anything is wrong with them or how to further improve them.
Could we just make some outlines for pages? I think it will be useful for newcomers and less painful to edit small mistakes.
Also, I'd like to hear suggestions, if someone is interested enough.
