Rollbacks

Krush - I assume you rolled back to an older version because you didn't like my edits to your sentence in the first paragraph.  That's fine, but doing so also broke the links I had updated to the changed Specials pages.  - Just something to watch for please?</p>

Big Revisions to Home Page?

I'm thinking the opening page should have some major revisions.  Currently it is way too long.  Instead it should be a brief overview with key links to pages that have information about raids, events, and game play.  MAYBE we keep the current events on the page if it is felt to be important, but the other sections should really have one or more pages of their own.  Thoughts?  Concerns?  If it sounds like a reasonable idea, I'm willing to make it happen.

If someone or you have the expertise -- have at it!  It could use a reasonable, logical, better navigable make over. Let;s see how this goes. -Ken  Westcoastken (talk) 03:26, June 11, 2013 (UTC)


Okay, I'm starting to work on this page:  Home Test Page

Okay, I still need to work on the look of it (maybe use some tables), but I'm feeling pretty good about the subjects covered and way I've divided up the categories. Any feedback? Home Test Page

So I went for it.  I'm not a Wiki master and didn't do much to make it look prettier.  My changes were focused on organization and ease of use. Especially trying to move a lot off of this page so people drill down for the information they need instead of being overwhelmed with a really long and cumbersome amount of it.   I made an effort to check carefully, but let me know if I left anything out.

Please post update procedure for the new home page as I dont know how to update to the new home page now. It seems to be a lot of work to update one news on the new page. Thanks. 

ShorelineTan (talk) 04:56, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

My thought was that you would dump your full update on the Updates page and just edit the one sentence "teaser" on the main page.  If you prefer to not update the teaser that would also be your choice.  Does that make sense?

Functionality

Seriously, I spent a lot of time along with G-SwedX to make this wiki the MOST accurate source of information regarding all ingame data.

The resent modifications has effectively rendered the wiki useless, as the pages are incomplete if they can be found at all. You obviously put a LOT of work into updating the looks of the wiki (which certainly wasn't pretty!) but let us not forget the main purpose of having it: quick and fast access to accurate data about the game. So please, don't remove anything until the new page is in place, and make sure all data is transferred in the process (if needed make a link to the old page so it can be verified). All in all, it looks a lot nicer than before so cudos to you :-)  BP.Andersson (talk) 03:48, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

So what's up with all the space taking stuff at the top of the home page?  Why would you want a digital clock, scrolling text, and more - each with its own title and white space.  I'd say that is a big factor in more dislikes in the poll than likes.Xenomo (talk) 03:23, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, I've changed it to a sleeker look while keeping easy access to the expanded one. Obviously it needs a bit more work, but should be manageable once I'm done deleting the damn spammers. G-SwedX (talk) 08:15, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
Granted the volume of information has been increased, but I've also seen the quality of the information and pages deteroriate.  As much as I dislike corporations tracking me online, perhaps its time to require logins to edit pages?  This will slow down the people who damage the pages & create more of a community of editors.

Fixing Link to Retrofit Lab in Main Header.

Is there a way to correct the wikilink to the retrofit lab on the main header?  I cannot figure out how to do it.  Thanks.  64.208.41.254 18:39, November 25, 2013 (UTC)

The home page needs a link to the FAQ.  

http://battlepirates.wikia.com/wiki/Battle_Pirates_FAQ

or 

Battle_Pirates_FAQ

You might include a note explaining the FAQ is a list of specific common questions & answers players run into, but not an introduction to the game.

Are there any plans for strategy pages?  

My edit http://battlepirates.wikia.com/wiki/Battle_Pirates_FAQ#How_do_I_fill_my_Warehouses_beyond_maximum_capacity.3F

belongs on a strategy page instead of there.  Of course everything else on the wiki is objective & straightforward, but strategy is much more subject to debate, personal preference, opposite ideas, etc.  Do ya'll think some basic strategies are a good idea?

Campaigns are out!  Wonderful!  Someone with the permissions should add a link to them under GamePlay and/or Events.  Maybe both.  http://battlepirates.wikia.com/wiki/Campaigns     Battle_Pirates_Wiki

Is there anyone willing to copy & reformat my extensive post to the wiki.  On the first page scroll down to the longest comment on the page.  Please keep the high level of English usage of what I wrote & possibly even more professional tone, etc.

Also, do we still need the citation requirement on the Campaigns page?
