  • It took a year, but I finally got a lucky edit badge for the 65,000th edit. At last I didn't miss it by a few edits.

  • If I recall correctly, you once mentioned that you trim all your images because the auto-sizing doesn't work for the card templates? Is the issue you were referring to the one currently displayed by Bludgeon (1)?

      Yeah, but what about the reward weapons? As far as I know, they aren't viewable from the rewards page or the space bridge.

      The ones for Day Wins in a Team Battle event are.  (They're kind of hidden behind the other cards, but they're there.)  Other than that I create the page without the image and wait for it to be added by someone that wins it since I usually only finish in the tier three or four.

    • Ah. Okay, I didn't realize the day prizes actually had full card images.

  • Hey thanks for the fixes. I'm a little bit new so I guess I don't know the convention for everything yet (like omitting the minor bosses).

    Do we capitalize the articles in the event names? Some of the older past ones in the list don't have them capitalized but the newer ones do. Going off the Help window in the game, it says "SPECIAL CAMPAIGN: Fire on the Mountain" so that's the format I went with. What's the convention for that?

    The Space Bridge Cards section for Fire On The Mountain was a little glitchy so I fixed it. At first there was an extra line between Starscream (6) Weapon and Reflector (3) 10x Attack Bonus so I removed it but then it took out the whole break so I edited it again. I'll check the source version and then preview in the future to make sure it's right.

    • Ah ok. Mobage changes too? That's annoying, I personally prefer consistency. Well I made all the adjustments for Fire on the Mountain yesterday without running into any problems. I won't go through any older things. I'll be sure to look out for it in the future though.

    • Yeah. At first, Mobage had no differentiation in naming between different versions of the same card. Then, they introduced a system for differentiating weapons moving forward but not retroactively. Finaly, they settled on the current system.

      During the first system, we constructed our own name differentiation system. When Mobage started differentiating weapons, it was mostly in line with ours but there were a few conflicts.

      With the introduction of the current system, there was a push to decide whether we would change over and, if so, whether it would be done retroactively. Doing so retroactively was considered because Mobage did the change retroactively. So some of the old card names changed rather than just a new system moving forward.

      As someone who had spent much time building the database with the old system, I was set against the retroactive aspect of the changes. Not to mention that there are a few naming conflicts that have, to this day, still to be resolved. In one particular case, the new system does not accommodate certain characters and their signature weapons. If you want to know more, just let me know. However, I think I will leave the description there for now.

      The tricky thing is that Speedo978^ started making retroactive changes without consensus from the rest of us. Furthermore, he/she did a rather sloppy^^ job. That being said, there are a lot of pages and links that require repair as a result of his/her changes. In other words, it ended up doing more harm than good. Since you are probably tired of reading such a long post, I will end it here. Although, if you care to know more about anything regarding this wiki I'll be happy to share what I know.

      ^at the time, a new user and even newer admin

      ^^to be completely blunt about it

  • Hey man. Just wanted to let you know that I undid your edit to Harvest of the Insecticons. That event did happen twice so the two sets of dates are valid.

    Did you do this for any other events other than the ones you created yourself?

    I think that may have been the only one but I am not sure if there were others I am unaware of. The best way to know would be to remember whether or not you changed any other older events.

    • I did and it was due to me being under the impression that the asterisk'ed fields were used in error based off of a previous discussion.  I'll try to go through the lists of my edits to see which ones I did and revert the ones where the dates differ.

        Loading editor
    • That is okay man. I guess I should have been clearer before. The asterisks are there if needed. That is why they don't appear unless given a value.

      Like I said, I think Harvest of the Insecticons and Me, Grimlock, King are the only events that happened twice. But I appreciate you willing to go back and check for the purpose of certainty.

      By the way, have you seen the edit I made for Me, Grimlock, King? What do you think? It is just like the asterisk dates except with the event progression.

      Also, another note. I recently noticed that DinoKev actually used an autoformatting function when writing his dates. Do we want to use that moving forward or just keep doing what we have been since others started creating the pages?

        Loading editor
    • I  like the change you made to Me, Grimlock, King and while auto-populating the dates is handy; would we still be able to enter them manually in instances where Mobage has done something screwey?

        Loading editor
    • It doesn't fill them in automatically, it just autoformats them. We still need to actually give it the date. The advantage I see is that the dates would be guarenteed to be the same format. In the past, they have been entered in several different formats. If it is still not clear what I am talking about, compare Me, Grimlock, King to Harvest of the Insecticons. Look at the source code.

  • Sorry to bother you again but since I haven't been involved with the card pages for quite some time I have the following question. Which templates are currently in use? If you could link to them in the reply that would be best but just telling me would suffice.

    Thanks.

    • lol, it's my in game profile pic as well.  Hard to miss me when I seed so look for the black guy with the cig sitting in front of Dr. Pepper at the grocery store and commence to help destroy the seed.  FYI, i'm not black in real life,lol.  

      Please do show me up! it's going to take a team of members to help keep this place organized.  We're just breaking ground on some of the things that need to be changed around here but at least an effort is being put forth.  I'm confident more is happening right now than ever.  Everybody keep it up, there are no stupid questions when it comes to improving this wiki, just post it em under the wiki discussion like you have been and let's hash em out as we always have.  :-)

  • I just noticed that we have these two categories. My understanding is that they are the same so I was wondering if we wanted to get rid of one?

    • Great suggestion regarding tools, I'm still getting the hang of what the Wiki can all do besides just creating pages.  I went to My Tools and one of the options What links here.  Choosing that on any page open another page that gives a list of everything else that links to it.  Or I can go directly to the What links here tool in the Admin Dashboard.

    • Your welcome I'll have Mr. GOC bump you up.  Yes, sir post away on the wiki discussion and let's get things handled.  Sorry things have to be so structured but it keeps the wiki clean so admins don't have to spend so much time moving threads.

  • Hi there Brock... I saw that you had "fixed" (changed) the row of MTM stats for Galvatron (4). You had actually made a mistake. My original stats are correct. You can validate the stats using the following picture: https://scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/1468553_228252090686419_677920546_n.jpg

    • I changed it because a saw another MTM Galvatron 4 with different stats so I thought that the ones you had entered were based off of a calculation.  There must be a discrepancy in the game but I apologize for any confusion.

    • Not a problem.  Is there any way to get the Evolve temple (template:infobox evo) added back to the templates section so that it doesn't have to be searched for manually any more?

        Loading editor
    • If you go to the home page, at the bottom, find the section "Helping Out". There is a string where you set the name of the page you want to create, and you can choose between three models: character, weapon and infobox evo. Then press the button "create new card page" and you're ready to fill the card page with all the statistics.
