Could you explain to me why some of the game pages are made as categories? I've worked for years on all kinds of Wikipedia's and Wikia's but never encountered that. Why not just make normal page of them, so that if people search for a set game, they don't have to use the "Category:" in front of it. If you just make the pages like Anomaly 2, you can always link to specific card pages through that page. The categories can still exist, but to hold the game page and specific card pages + all the images for that game. This would make a lot more sence.
I've been adding new games to the release list each day as they get released and when I create the link to the pages there is no "category:" there. No idea why or who is adding it.
As I posted earlier there needs to be a standard to these pages people keep updating pages and it's just a waste of time without a template cause someone is going to have to re-edit the pages whenever Nebthtet decides on a standard for the template.
But it appears that Nebthtet has decided to give up with this wikia .. been 15 days since he's been around.
It saddens me to hear you're leaving. You were doing a great job! I also fowarded this message to Xt0rt3r, the admin, and he agreed with the new system. I thought you wanted to know. Well, if we won't see you again, good luck to you.
Since Nebthtet, Xt0rt3r and I have decided to make a template thats similar to your page Anomaly 2. Only with a few adjustments like an intro and infobox. I'm going to do much work around here: implementing the new system, formatting pages, using categories the right way, creating more templates. If you leave, I hope you'll return one day after i'm finished to see the results :)
Glad to hear that you are coming up with a design ..
Maybe I was juumping to soon but it just felt like it was not going anywhere. There was no communication going on really.
This is the first time I've ever really worked on any sort of Wiki and I am be willing to help out more as long as there is a plan in place. I just can not work when there is chaos and no structure. :)
Let me know when you have a design template and I will definitally help you guys set up more pages. Also if you need help in setting anything up or testing out stuff or whatever please let me know. This whole thiong is new to me but I wold really like to help create a great place to go for information on the Steam Trading Cards
I'd send you my email address but I see no way to PM or sent messages only you would see. So leave info here and I'll check daily to see what the progress is.
Looking forward to help in creating a great Wikia.
Hello, I was wondering ,before I started making to many pages, if there was a specific format you wanted new pages to be made with. I see a lot of inconsistincies with the pages which in the long run can make things confusing.
I've seen some more basic pages such as this one Hotline Miami, and a few more complex ones like this one Counter Strike Global Offensive. I appreciate the answering of this question, and hope to see the Wiki turn into something great.
I did the Hotline Miami as well as a lot of other pages today (and will be doing more tonight). I have been concentrating on getting the cards up on the page and was going to go back through at a later time and add the other areas such as Badges, Backgrounds, Etc. to match some of the more fleshed out pages but If you want to add those to the pages be my guest.
All right, I'll get what I can filled out, I'm not sure if you know the answer to this Bob, but I noticed there was a emoticon page by itself listing all the games, and I assume was to be filled with all the games, and their emoticons. Should we continue with that, or add an emoticon section to each page.
Personally, I'm really liking the layout of the Scribblenauts Unlimited page, although it's missing a few features. I'll do a rough layout below adding in a few other features from A.R.E.S. and TF2.
General Description (when cards were added to the game, description of the cards if applicable, etc.) + the Card Pictures (click on a card on your badge description page, and it should expand into a much larger picture. Put them into a slide show, width 500, centered, and with the name of each card it's associated with)
The Badges (Use a Gallery, and make sure to set the background to transparent. Set the name and level for certain, probably xp. Need five normal + 1 foil.)
The Cards (Use a Gallery. Make sure to set the background to transparent and add the name of each card. We should decide whether to have all the cards lumped together or have separate sections for standard, foil, and booster pack. )
Backgrounds (Use a Gallery, again transparent, name of each background. Also, add the rarity, and the separate description if applicable)
Emoticons (Same as the Background. Example :bug: Common (Meet something unexpectedly!)
