Hey Caluril, for some weird reason the way the explained to me to get all the (foil) cards doesn't work with Total War: SHOGUN 2. Can you make it work? If i try to use that way but it just brings me to my badges page instead of the correct foil cards page of the game.
I don't know why posts to other people's walls show up on wiki activity, but I noticed this, so...
For some strange reason, a few games have the 'wrong' SteamID for their cards. They're the same 99% of the time, but the other 1%... I have no idea why - probably some technical reason. This seems to be one of them. Anyway, in this case, the 'right' SteamID for the SHOGUN 2 cards is 34330.
In this case, I found it by looking at PalmDesert's Steam badges page. I tend to use his (and some of the other highest-level people's pages) to check on things like badges. His is at http://steamcommunity.com/id/palmdesert
Could you please try and do everything on a page in one/two edits. Its ok to forget something and adding it in a different edit, but doing so much small edits on one page, that could easily have been one big edit (like on Grid 2) is not generally something we want. This doesn't give a good oversight of all edits that have been done.
Ow and please stop changing the spaces in the file names to _. In the code it doesn't matter which one you use, but we tend not to use the _ where you could also use a space. The pages for the files itself (like File:Kowloon Dragons.png) also don't use the _, they are only used in the url of the page.
well... next time I will work with less edits ... and I will stop changing other image names the spaces in _ .
But... I have one question: For the edits I use the source mode ... and there the file names are displayed after upload to me with the _ and just as was the filename in the editor window (source mode) displayed (picture upload via gallery-button in "Add features and media" on the right side) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- All the files I uploaded, have _ in the filename. Should I use spaces instead of the _ for the next image names?
What I mean is: The next entry, I wanted to edit is "Warframe" ... where, for example, no booster pack not yet uploaded.
How should I designate these file for uploading (and all other images for future uploads) ... with spaces or _? for example: Warframe Booster Pack.png instead of Warframe_Booster_Pack.png
You cannot upload pictures without the use of _, it would place them there automaticly. But that doesn't mean you should place them in an article that way. It uploads them automaticly as "Warframe_Booster_Pack.png" but you should place them in articles as Warframe Booster Pack.png.
"For the edits I use the source mode ... and there the file names are displayed after upload to me with the _"
I also always edit in source mode. Some of them show with the _, but thats because someone placed them there. I think the names were directly copied from the url. But thats nothing i can't fix with my bot, but please don't change spaces into _ in the future. Any existing things can be fixed by me ;)
Personally, I prefer the _ over spaces. Possibly because I've done a lot or programing in the past, where I always tended to use ridiculously_long_variable_names, but also because I feel like the _ is the 'real' file name. Wikia may allow spaces to help people who don't know anything about wikitext, but that seems more like a user nicity than how things 'should' be.
Also, in some cases, it can cause problems with the parsing. I doesn't matter in something like a gallery, because it knows that its looking for a file name, but in other contexts, if it comes across Some_File_Name.jpg, it knows right from the start that all of that belongs together. If you use spaces, it assumes that the "Some File" part is just text, and then it tries to look for Name.jpg. You have to append File: to fix that problem, which seems messy looking.
Of course, I don't really see how it matters much one way or the other: you only ever see it when you're in text edit mode, and the system doesn't care one way or the other as long as its marked correctly.
Well personally i think using _ is pretty ugly. I'm also learning to program on my education and i know programmingwise using _ is normal. I just feel like its becoming one big block of text, which i find really annoying. And since in my long career of Wikia/Wikipedia editting i was forced to use a space instead of the _ its more of a habit. And my preference off course.
"Wikia may allow spaces to help people who don't know anything about wikitext, but that seems more like a user nicity than how things 'should' be."
But a Wikia is all about that, right? Our Wikia is not very populated at the moment but when you get a bigger community, like we have on the Elder Scrolls Wikia, we should use such 'user nicities', right? Especially for the new users.
My opinion is just that I don't think it matters one way or the other. If you like _, use _, if you like spaces, use spaces. Its pretty much all the same. I guess I can sort of understand why _ might make it look like a wall of text to you, but I've done enough programming that I read _ as spaces without even thinking about it.
Now I'm as smart as before ... I change no more space in _ that's ok ...
I did not cause any inconsistencies between the different users ... but in the near future I will only use existing images ... if detail pages are to create, because it's not my decision, whether spaces or _ should be at the source code for the file name.
That means that I create the detail pages for "Crusaders Kings II" for today (with the trading cards, the foil cards, categories and description from the Community market).
I adjust the sequence of the existing cards the same as the steam page (currently it is not the right order).
Btw... the game was bad named... not "Crusaders Kings II" ... only "Crusader Kings II" (according to steam gamecards page)
I have moved the page to the correct name ... was that OK?
That's a bit odd - I must not have created the Warlock 2 page when I put it on the unreleased game page, since it was blank. Anyway, I added to the help with instructions on making a new trading card page. If any part of it is unclear, feel free to edit it.
BTW, do you have an ideas about what to do with the new Free to Play movie? For the moment, I put it in the Supported Games category, but its not actually a game. Should we have a Supported Movies category? Put it with special card sets?
I don't know why Valve released this documentary with trading card support... but I think this is the only movie, which will be released ... that means in my opinion is no extra category or section like "Supported Movies" needed .. but this could be placed at special card sets
I'm slightly jealous. I managed to get up to 150 days there, but then somehow I wound up missing a day - I'm not even sure how. I'm back up to 110 days now, though, so hopefully in 3 months I'll have it as well :P
Hello. I wanted to get your opinion on something. The list on Supported Games is getting rather ridiculously long, and I was thinking we need to do something to break it up and make it more managable. Something I started playing with the other day was a new tabbed system (which you probably noticed me messing with a lot in Recent Changes :) ) The page for it for the moment is at Supported Games. Its not even close to being done, but it at least shows generally what I was thinking about trying. I just wanted to know what you thought about it.
Cool. If there's anything you think should be changed, added or done differently, let me know. I still have a lot of work to do. For now, I'm just trying to get the format correct. It's also somewhat difficult right now to add new games to the list, so I need to improve that.
I saw you added You Have to Win the Game. I was looking at it earlier trying to figure it out, because I think it's in the same boat as Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok. They're both Free to Play games, but because they don't have anything to actually buy, there's no way to actually get the cards. There's a number of conversations about it on the game's forums on Steam. It looks like the same situation as Heroine's Quest - the developer didn't know he wouldn't be allowed to give away the cards without anything to sell.
Since I have not tested it ingame (and no DLC's are available on the store page) ... i will move the gamepage to the "Special Card Sets" (we will see if something will change with their card distributions)
Concerning : (gallery-tags restored (they was removed by IGnome) - Undo revision 90535 by IGnome (talk))
It must have been the visual editor screwing up removing empty galleries tag when i removed the work in progress category for badges, as i completed it.
It doesn't really matter since those others chapter were empty for now.
Hello. It seems you recently reported IGnome for calling you a name, which Wikia seems to have delegated back to me. I sent him a message talking to him about the issue and asked him not to do it again.
I see from your profile wall that you're considering leaving the wiki. I'd be unhappy if you did - you've done a lot of really great work here. Please try not to tell IGnome bother you. I know you two don't really seem to get along too well. You seem to have a lot of disagreements over things that, I have to be honest, seem fairly minor. He's not as concerned about wiki standards as you are, but he's also added a lot to the wiki and helped fill in a lot of pages.
"but he's also added a lot to the wiki and helped fill in a lot of pages."
That's right ... but that does not give him the right to insult other users with pejorative names. And there it was equal to 3-4 times in a few hours on Saturday ... went to me but slowly too far ... and I'm not here to quarrel with other users, it was necessary for a competent authority to inquire, how I should behave now.
I'll see about what will now ... (incidentally, that was also the reason for a possible leaving)
Yes ... everything is OK with me ... there were only a few complicated (and damn long) working days ... so it wasn't possible for me to make a some edits (at these days) ... By no later than Friday, there should be much better with my time... (so I can participate effectively again.) :)
