    not completely sure....but it just doesn't look right

  • Hey, I wonder why on the Help:Overview page is written why you need to add the first game of the franchise as the cover image. Is there a special reason for that? Because for some (actually most) franchises I would rather choose the newest version.

    • It has a lot to do with games that have multiple expansions; the idea is that we want to avoid confusion whereby someone might look at the image and think the page is about the expansion rather than the core game + expansions.

      For the sake of uniformity that idea is carried across all pages.

      The other issue is that we don't want to continually come in and have to change the infobox image whenever a new expansion or game comes out.

    • Hmmm, I can understand that. However for a lot of long running franchises it's a little bit odd. For example FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer. However maybe it's an idea to give people a choice to choose a core game? Or maybe that you have to add the newest core game? I think when the wiki gets bigger more people will come, so it won't be much work to update it sometimes.

    • I'm not totally against the idea. I can change the Help page to have people choose either the core game or the most recent expansion/game, and we can see if there's any confusion.

    • Sounds like a good idea :)

  • Hey again, sorry to bother you but I have a question again. There are several long running franchises which have a lot of developers. This is often the case when game developers/publishers need rights to make the game. See this for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NASCAR_video_games#List. Because of this the pages about these will be a little bit messy and big. Maybe making seperate pages for the long running 'parts' of it, so making it per developer and then when needed one page for all 'other' versions and then a complete list of all pages. Just an idea. What do you think or do you have other ideas/opinions? I don't really know what to do with this :D

    • No problem ;) Yeah, that's probably best for FIFA; Pro Evolution if that follows the same trend.

  • Hello Sir/Mam Raylan13,
    I want to ask about, how to use the gaming footer? Do I need to create my own footer and add any RPG games?

      Loading editor
    • Not at all - the gaming footers are already created, we're just waiting to roll them out with the sites included that are interested in joining. That should be toward the end of this month, and I'll be going through and adding them all to those sites included.

      You can find them here. If you want your site considered for inclusion, just add it in the section you feel most fits your game's genre. We'll check out the site and then place a check mark next to your site if it meets the minimum qualifications.

    • Thank You, I'll be checking this wiki by the end of the month and see the new footer. I'm excited XD.

  • Hi. I've recently added Geometry Dash as a game article here, and stumbled across these new footers. They seem like something our community might consider participating in. However, Geometry Dash does not fit into any of the existing genres; it is quite simply an arcade game with one-touch gameplay and accordingly would do in an Arcade Games genre, except there isn't one right now. Do consider looking into one. Thanks.

    • Reading through the description on Steam, etc., it's billed as a platformer, so we'd place it into that footer.

      If you'd like, I can place your site on the footer page and approve it :)

    • Well, I certainly wouldn't call it anything like Crash Bandicoot or Sonic, but we can work with that genre placement. Thanks again.

        Loading editor
    • No problem :) I'll put you in the list.

      If we do eventually have a need for an Arcade footer, though, I'll keep your site in mind for inclusion.

  • Hi, Raylan.  I think it would be great for the BG wiki to be a part of this, but I'm not entirely sure that it's my call.  Thomaslove92 is probably the one to whom you should speak regarding this but, like I said, I'm on board. - Erik the Mad (talk) 03:23, September 25, 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi! I was wondering if these gaming footers would be customizable with CSS classes? I have a similar system for Dutch wikis where basic layout is given, but can be edited through CSS to better match the main page.

    E.g. w:c:nl.princeoftennis (at the bottom) and w:template:NL-animanga. The border is gone and the title also got "display: none;" cause it was replaced by a custom title locally.

    • Due to the fact that the footers live on Community Central, the nature of how they're imported and then displayed should make it possible to tweak via CSS, yes ;)

    • Oh, great! Thanks :)

  • Hey there! I was checking out the Final Fantasy page on gameshub here, which was based on the one we have on the FFWiki, and it highlighted several areas I'd like to improve, so I do want to rewrite the FFWiki's article, and bits of that will need rewriting here. This means I may end up massively changing the article here, just a heads-up! A similar thing may be coming for the Jak and Daxter series page, I may want to change/improve that one, though I realise Jak and Daxter doesn't yet have an article on gameshub.

    The other thing was the links to FFXIclopedia and FFXIV ARR Wikis. Regarding those, I just wanted to say that the FFWiki's policy and amount of coverage has changed a lot, and the wiki now covers (or at least, aims to cover?) those two MMOs in full, and ideally, we shouldn't need extra wikis for them (I think I brought this up with some of Wikia Staff members at Community Connect in SF). So, I'm not sure if the wiki links should be removed, or if there should be anyone I should talk to about merging the wikis, but ideally, we'd want to fully include information about the MMOs on the FFWiki, and have taken strides towards achieving this. Just figured I'd let you know.

    Thanks!

    • Alright, I've rewritten the page. I used brief bits (the first paragraph from each section, removed the Decelopment and Reception sections) of the page in the rewrite, hopefully that means I kept in enough context for the page to be any good...

      I don't know how Encyclopedia Gamia works, but I can create a Final Fantasy series page there as well?

    • It all looks good to me :)

      As for EncyGamia, I'll refer you to TwoTailedFox, since he heads things up there. He's taken over the site within the past few months, but there's plenty of cleaning up to do. He's the point person for over there - of course, you can always come back and poke me if things end up not being clear enough ;)

  • Thank you for contacting us. Can you tell us more about this initiative? Under which category would the BioShock Wiki fall under? What's needed on our part to be done?

      Loading editor
    • Everything about the footers can be found here ;) As for the genre, I'd imagine BioShock would fall under the Shooter footer. All you need to do is say "yea" and I can list and approve it - or you can directly list it on the footer page itself under the Shooter section and I can then approve it ;)
