  • I would like to know if adding a link to the original place for community made maps is allowed. I was wanting to know, because i wanted to add a link to the place for the map, so people may join the place and explore the map. The specific page that this was planned for was the page for Aquarium, which had its development scrapped.

    As a side note, its still listed as being in testing within the wiki and i am not sure if its supposed to be listed there.

    • It's generally frowned upon to link things that are not on the wiki.

      That template will be updated in a bit. It's kind of hard to maintain and relies on some hacks due to wikitext being... strange to say the least.

    • Ask around with other staff members, but we all talk to each other on the wiki's Discord, so anything you say to one of us will generally get ferried around to everyone.

    • Alright then. I really don’t know how to upload pictures to the wiki page, can you show me the steps?

    • Start by uploading images through the Special:Images portal. Once you do that, you'll have some file names.

      To add files on their own, you use
      [[File:MyFileNameGoesHere.png|280px]] -- the 280px here determines how large the image will be on the X axis.

      When working with galleries, look for <gallery></gallery> tags in Source mode. On a new line, add something like
      File:MyFileNameGoesHere.png|This is a caption

      You could try using the visual gallery editor, but it's antiquated like much of Wikia's website... better to just drop into source mode.

      I'd recommend trying it out on your sandbox before doing anything else. Don't worry about the redlink, just go ahead and make it. Anything you do in your sandbox won't hurt the wiki.

  • Due to the recent update to Blizzard, I was wondering how the article should be updated:

    Should it have the existing article simply editted to fit the new landmarks and strategies, or should a tab be added at the top, similar to the existing tab for the original version of Blizzard?

    I would personally go for the latter as it separates the two maps, as they differ quite a bit, however I'm asking you because I don't want to do something for it to be immediately removed.

    Also, I posted a discussion about the Maps overview page, which hasn't been updated in a while. I can't update it because I don't have the priviliges, but I think it'd be a good idea to get stuff up-to-date with the latest update.

    Thanks,

    Loz

    • Oh sorry I pulled them from some images Wolf sent me ages ago. Don't actually have the versions of the map to remove the AGMP from so sorry. I can remove the images if that would be better, just give us a shout

      Edit: Are all of these policies about this stuff in an article anywhere, because I've not read anything about this before...

    • It's just general image quality. You want to make sure you're putting the highest quality images on the wiki. To be honest, a lot of it isn't formalized.

  • The weaponry page has outdated information. The Assault rifles section is missing the new TAR-21. The X95R in the Carbine section is no longer at rank 0 but yet at rank 130. And last of all, the X95 SMG is also no longer at rank 0. I do not have permission to edit the page to update the rank info and add the TAR-21 link even though I already updated the three new guns separate pages. (Please remedy this to prevent confusion.)

  • Apologies in advance if this is the incorrect way to handle the issue, but I’m still learning the ins and outs of the wiki. Recently you reverted an edit I made to remove a statement about an unusually high torso multiplier, saying that the torso multiplier of 1.1X is abnormal. Under the Advanced tab on the page the torso multiplier is listed as 1X. Is the torso multiplier mislabeled?

      Loading editor
    • No, you're doing the right thing to come to my talk page. 

      Given that the weapon isn't currently in the Test Place, I cannot verify that information. When I last checked, the X95R did have a torso multiplier of 1.1. It is likely mislabeled on the Wiki's advanced stats unless there was a last minute change I was not aware of.

      Without any further evidence to corroborate it, that's why I reverted the page.

  • Is there a place to place sources from which we have gotten the information(be it history or trivia)?

    • Yes, check the References button. When you cite something using a reference, it will add it to the list of references at the bottom of the page.

      Please make sure that you can verify what you're using for a reference across multiple sources to make absolutely sure it's not just one isolated mention that is hear-say.

    • The flare is irrelevant in all gameplay purposes to anyone except yourself. The most a flare will do on the server is cause a momentary blip of orange light, which can only be seen in a tiny amount of circumstances. The flash hider is more for your own visual purposes, e.g. on the Tommy Gun where the flash is bright enough to obstruct what you're trying to see.

      While we're discussing this, I'm going to freeze the Steyr Scout page to prevent edit warring.

    • alright, now that you explained it, it makes a bit more sense.

      (no worries, im not going to edit the scout for some time being)
