  • Hello Sxerks, I've been meaning to clean up this wiki for a while and seeing that no one else seems to be very active, I hope you won't mind giving me admin powers, There are many useless redirects, duplicate images etc whom we can save a lot of space on.

    I won't use my powers against any other user except for pure vandalism, so you don't need to worry. If you feel they have been misused, feel free to take them back anytime. You are the only active admin here, so I hope it is okay.

    • I'll add you as a rollback for now, and an admin later, if you need something deleted, just tag it with {{delete}}

    • There are many files but okay I'll tag what is really space wasting. Thanks.

  • Hey Sxerks, it's Tagaziel, from the Official Wasteland Wiki over on Gamepedia. I'm dropping you a line since you're the current admin.

    Since Curse and Fandom joined forces, there's no longer a need to compete, but we can discuss joining forces, like our hosts. I'm planning on making extensive updates to the Official Wiki, so we might as well discuss the idea of creating what everyone wants: The one, definitive guide to the Wasteland series. :)

    • Sorry for the late reply, the last couple of days were hard on me (kid's having an UTI, my main work PC had to be set up again with Windows, ergh, bad times all around). Ad rem:

      1. Yeah, we're working on fixing the mobile site of things (my experience with mobile sites was the opposite, but I guess I'm just out of luck). At any rate, I will likely be redoing the skin in the run-up to WL3/Remastered.

      2. I believe that the Twitch login will be removed eventually. You can get a more concrete answer from our Global Community Lead, MisterWoodhouse (both Fandom and Curse).

      3. The site doesn't have a lot of editors now, for two reasons: WL2 is past its prime and I like to think I did a pretty good job of filling in every nook and cranny. At the present, the official wiki has about three to five times the traffic (based on just last week), twice the content articles, five hundred more files, updated Porter templates (loving called the Plague by my boss :P), and also incorporates articles from the Wasteland deconstruction wiki (I reached out and we merged; all in good time, as Wikispaces went belly up) and another private German wiki that includes some pretty nifty image functionality and scripts that replicate the behavior of the games animation system.

      At any rate, I will be definitely upgrading and redoing the wiki as Remastered nears and to get it ready for WL3. There's no rush for a decision either way, though, as we're still working on it. I just wanted to reach out, so that nobody's blindsided. :)

    • Unless you're a developer who has access to Curse's source code, I doubt you can change much. I've been to other sites too and it isn't much better. Besides the ugly UI and Twitch login are quite annoying. If the experience becomes better, then I will think of migrating there. Others can decide what they want to do, but it will be inappropriate to merge with a large enough census.

  • Is it possible to start at a page and see all the pages that link TO it. For instance is there a way to see all the pages that have a link to the Servo motor page?

  • Hey I noticed something odd. If you go to the Wasteland 2 Page, you will notice the Wasteland 2 Perks subcategory shows empty but in fact has 60 pages. Any idea why? Also the Wasteland 2 traits subcategory shows 7 pages when there only 5? As of this writing, the Main Page and the Wasteland 2 page show a total page count of 932 and the Wasteland page shows 990, which I believe is the accurate total count. I am certain the subcategory issue is the culprit. Not sure if I created the Perk Category page incorrectly or what happened?

    • it's probably a server cache thing, where it updates those type of items everyday or x hours instead of instantly.

    • Good point, it seems to have caught up.

  • Hey Sxerks. I know it been a long time since I was last around and I have been trying to fix some links and update some pages here and there. I am a Bureaucrat, but I don't recall if I used to be an Admin as well. If I was, may I have that privilege back, and if not can you contact me so we can make a couple fixes? Most notably, the ability to remove Beta templates from some of the Wasteland 2 pages so we don't need to make new ones without the templates.

    • That seems fine. I don't recall if any icons were updated, if they were it's easy enough to have both of them on a page.

      I think the weapon stats changed too.

    • Yeah, I haven't even begun to work on items. I just saw the huge info gap for the Perks and Quirks from the DC. Of course, there doesn't seem to be much other activity in the community here lately.

  • Hey great work on this wiki I like it, I have a few questions since I'm planning on visiting more often, first off how long has this wiki been going? I was just wondering. Secondly, thanks for posting the Ertan picture I am new to wiki formatting and couldn't get it right, does it have to have certain dimensions or is there a trick to fitting it in the designated box? That's something I'd like to know before I go and create more pages all with screwed up pictures.

    • It has been around since 2008, and the first large sum of work was when I joined it in 2009. I added most of the pictures quite a while ago, seeCategory:Wasteland_2_Portrait_Images. The dimensions are automatic, so you just need to add the name of the image like"Wl2 portrait ertan b.png" without the quotes. I assume you are using the visual editor, which gives a lot of extra options that aren't used, best to look at a character page that already exists and edit it or edit in source mode to see what is really being entered.

  • Hello Sxerks!

    With Wasteland 2 Director's cut on the horizon (October 2015), we at Wikia would like to know if you would be interested in working together to create a new visual look and navigation for the Wasteland Wiki main page. This would include a new background skin and headers. We will be receiving assets from Deep Silver to help out with a new design but if there is something specific you would like us to ask them for, we can certainly reach out to them for you. Also if there are any page elements or other features you have thought about and would like help with or have questions regarding, we would love to hear about them. Let me know as soon as possible if this sounds like a collaboration you would be interested in. Thanks!

    • Hi Sxerks. I'm Joe from Wikia. I spent most of yesterday giving a visual overhaul to Wasteland Wiki, as I'm sure you can see. I forgot to give you a heads up right when I finished, so I'm doing it now.

      One of the things I did was create Template:Heading using the same font from the Wasteland logo. To add a new heading to the main page, simply type {{Heading|Title}} where Title is the title of the section. The template automatically displays the text in all caps (text-transform:uppercase).

      I hope you like the new look. :)

  • Hey Sxerks! As you may know, I've been adding lots and lots of content to the wiki regarding Wasteland lore, and I'd like to start adding navboxes. Trouble is, I need sysop rights to do this.

    I'd like to be an administrator. I'd visit daily and keep an eye on things, and I could really help with the cleanup going on right now.

    Thanks,

    ~The-Artist-64

    • Well, navboxes are just templates and don't need admin access, and I am also here daily.

  • Hi, Sxerks!

    Wasteland 2 was nominated for Most Anticipated Crowdfunded Game for the SXSW Awards, which Wikia is officially hosting this year! In order to drive any fans to the voting page that might be interested in rallying for their favorite game, we were wondering if we could place a badge on your main page that links to it?

    Best regards,

    Raylan
