    I'm new on this Forum/Wiki and i don't know how to make the Standard-Format for the Pages.. :)

    Greetings,

    Ino.

    • No problem! I'm a bit OCD and really like having things in order. Luckily, this is a wiki that benefits from standardized page formats, vs. the clutter of most others =p

    • Greetings again. :)

      I only will say thanks again for the great work on Don't Starve Together. Now i have a perfect template: "How to make a Standard-Format-Page".

      I'm very very excited, that's why i say thanks again. :)

      Maybe u will take a look at "my" new Page: http://steamtradingcards.wikia.com/wiki/WildStar?venotify=created

      I hope it's better than the first try with Don't Starve. :) Have a nice Day! :)

  • Based on you making pages for Withstand: Apatheos, the TradingCard2 template does allow for such games by using the |GameName variable, as also used for example here:
    Legends of Solitaire: Curse of the Dragons - Dwinbar

    Personally I still think that's faster and less prone to error than using the old template, of course your mileage may vary, but just posting this incase you weren't aware of the possibilities of this new template :).

  • On Holiday Sale 2015 (the vague backgrounds)? Can't see if having even a history lesson use, just pointless clutter to me IMO.

    • I don't want to answer this question, because I will end up writing a 500-word essay =p but let me try to be brief:

      On policy: I tend to defer to Drocket, who is the only active admin to my knowledge. As far as I'm aware, wiki editors in general accept that "clutter" will be added--it's better to have it than not (otherwise, how are we that different from Steam Card Exchange).

      On my adding those backgrounds: I actually try to avoid updating the Sales pages because they always have extra stuff, but lots of those images were sitting in Special:UncategorizedFiles for a LONG time, so I just finished up the page as best I could to have those finished. The other obscured backgrounds were already added, and I dislike deleting any work other people have done, because it clearly means something to THEM (what if someone turned an obscured background into gems, then wondered afterward what it turned out to be?).

    • My general opinion tends to be - I dunno. I can't imagine any real use for them either. At the same time, what if someday we DO want them for some insane reason - I don't think we could get them back, since they're a limited time sort of thing. I guess it's better to have them and not need them than to need them and not have them?  Of course, that's the sort of hoarder mentality that's the reason my house is a mess  :P

  • That's GOT to be the most lazy trading card implementation of a re-release I've ever seen. Never have I seen pure recyclage. Considering everything is the same (bar a few cards) I don't see why we simply can't use the same images, rather than duplicates. For the badge didn't notice that but we can just use #4 twice. I don't see any need to upload the same image twice just cause a developer is lazy.

    Having said that the 'Remastered' badges are still modified to appear as marked for deletion and I modified the artwork and original badges to have original and remastered categories (for which 5 would need to be revoked then). Or should they all be restored to their original?

      Loading editor
    • I put off finishing that game for precisely these reasons, but in the meantime I decided that (in my opinion--can't speak for anyone else) uploading duplicate images that have been reused on Steam are fine, where the ones I've been marking for deletion are duplicates of what's intended to be one unique image. There are literally tens or hundreds of thousands of images just on this wiki, so an extra 22 otherwise identical to others won't make a big difference.

      What the filename structure does is unambiguously tag a specific image as, say, No Time To Explain Remastered Badge Level 1, instead if 5000 copies of "01.png" (besides that Wikia tries to say 01.png is also used on 5000 other wikis). It also makes it easier to link to an image for the Emoticon and Profile Background galleries. Furthermore, how would one decide which file is the "original"? Would NTTE Remastered Badge 4 be it because it's number is lower? Or 5, because it's the "correct" one? Less clear-cut, there's one game that uses literally the same image for two different cards (it's uploaded once and linked to both)... I believe I uploaded it only once, but that the two different cards share one filename makes it confusing to anyone who doesn't realize the designer did that intentionally, and might assume I made a mistake if they don't bother to or know how to read the update comments.

      Mostly, I feel it's simpler to just leave what's done done and move on to the next WIP, even if it gets on my nerves that someone uploaded a 01.png again. I don't remember which game had the shared artwork for two cards, or I'd fix it, but almost no one is going to care that it looks like an error, so long as what the page displays is technically accurate.

      (Also, the Millennium game series emotes are a perfect example of not even bothering with comparing the images across games, since they're all just slightly different from each other.)

    • I think you mean Incoming Forces? Yeah, definitely a headscratcher (that's not a tank!) I think it's an error on the developers side rather than intended behavior though. Or another one entirely?

      And my opinion is because we indeed have so many files, it's only more clutter everywhere to have 2 of the same. We can easily solve it for emoticons by giving it two lines, one the original name, other the remastered, rather than having 2 entries).

      Just my point of view though.

      EDIT: (It's 13.00 here ;))

    • To me, it only feels like "clutter" when the files are haphazardly uploaded and not linked anywhere (have been fixing that when I can).

  • ... removing the category "detailed animal faces", moving (what isn't already cloned) to it's animal-type subcategory. It's hard to keep up as is without having to do double the work. Or should the effort be done to get it up-to-date again?

      Loading editor
    • Eh, fine with me. I think that one dude just went nuts making pages and didn't really think about what people would actively search for. I don't really even like the division of faces vs. whole bodies, etc. without narrowing it down a bit... but then, who has time to fix that up? =p (hint: not me, anymore)

    • Good :)
      Got some time and Drocket already approved so already started, nearly done now. But yeah, probably not going to touch all others, generally very outdated other pages either :/

  • It was spam. Talk pages can be generated by anyone (much like regular pages) so there is no explicit requirement to have one pre-made either. If anyone felt the need for one with actual content, they could/can just remake it.

  • Not sure if that's needed, but... fair enough.
    But do we really need Digital Homicide Studios LLC. and Digital Homicide Studios seeing it's exactly the same company? I'm pretty sure the other 'devs' and 'publishers' are too, but this one is definitely not up for question.

    • I believe we've handled it in the past with "See also: Such and Such"

      Now that I look, BANDAI NAMCO Games could use a similar tweaking.

    • Generally we try to match whatever the developer/publisher is on Steam. Why these companies can't get things together enough to make sure that their games are listed under one name, I don't understand.

  • I'm sure you noticed it, and the posts about it by Raylan13 on my wall about it. I just wanted to see what you think of it, and if there's anything you dislike about it or want changed.

    • It seems to be an admin-only function. You have to pick a file to upload to be the background.
