  • Hello Diisel

    It has been observed that you have been absent for more than a month (at the time of writing this). You were last active on 20 Feb 2019. Due to your prolonged absence without intimation of any kind, you are being served this notice.

    You have to justify your absence or resume duties by the 20th of this month, i.e. April. If you fail in doing either of the same, we shall be forced to terminate your services as Content Moderator.

    • Hi Pafton,

      Thank you for the notice. That is true, I haven't made any contributions in a while. I do keep an eye on the wiki daily but for that I do not need the CM status. I have had some changes in my personal life and I don't see it turning back to the the way it was before. Therefore I do think it is only fair to terminate my services as CM.

      I am visiting the wiki regularly and who knows, maybe even contribute from time to times. It has been a pleasure to serve as the CM.

      Best regards,

    • Hi

      Thank you for the quick and honest response. I appreciate that you are greatly interested in this wiki and keep a watch on it daily. Unfortunately, the CM's post merits a certain minimum contributions which you were not able to maintain. I'm happy that you'll still stick around and contribute. Apologies if my previous message came across to be a bit harsh. It was, however in the best interests of this wiki.

      If you do have the time, we would like if you would stay in touch on Discord. Of course, its not a compulsory obligation.

      Wishing you the best of luck in life.

      Sincerely, Pafton (talk){Main Admin} 09:23, April 5, 2019 (UTC)

    Please let me know if you're interested.

    • Hi,

      Wow, that's a surprise. I do have one question. What are the expectations for the Content Moderator.

    • Hi,

      Mostly what you've been doing up till now. You've been adding pages that were either missing or otherwise needed and pointed out some issues to me and Pafton in a way that proves you have insight on what's needed on the Wiki. As a CM you'll have some additional editing tools and privileges that can help you with this.

      I would like to ask you to look for a solution for the Infobox SpBu (with the help of Community Central ), since I don't know the first thing about that and Pafton is not around much.

      Beside that, just a bit of housekeeping and some help responding to comments / keeping an eye on the 'Recent activity ' would be appreciated.

    • Yeah, you can but my name up for the CM.

      I look deeper into the SpBu infobox. I haven't gotten a response regarding the topic from Pafton since 12 of November.

  • Hi Diisel,

    Could you please put a space between a picto and the following text?

    It improves readability and editing. Thanks.

    • I can't really agree on the readability part (except for tavern silver icon), I find it spaces it out a little bit too much. But I can do that, if that's the style guideline. No problem. I've just seen both cases used throughout the wiki here and chose the way that looked better for me.

    • The only exception I know of is the {{ITIM}} template, it spaces out different.

  • Hi Diisel,

    I've reverted you're edits on Great Buildings, this is not what we discussed when using Fierce Resistance, this only applies on Terracotta army.

    I'll also revert most edits you made on Attack Boost, percentages being stacked is the term that player's use. Also, the Advanced Tactics picto should not be used for the term Attack boost.

  • Hi Diisel,

    Regarding your edits on the coins page: I've noticed you placed the icon before all mentions of the word 'coins' and making the text bold. This is not necessary. In general icons are not used in the text itself (although there are exceptions, like in amounts, e.g. Coins 50 coins).

    I would also avoid so much use of bold text, although this was already on the page before you edited it.

    • Cool, I will clean those pages. However I think there are some pictograms that should be used inside a paragraph as well. For example set icons before the set names, Size before describing a size and finally Attack (boost) & Defense (boost) before the mention of Attack Bonus and Defense Bonus. Those are all much rarer occasions than for example supplies, coins or forge points. The main reason I see is to give a link to a correct page with overall information without cluttering the article with links.

      On that regard the Size needs fixing since it redirects to the current page the template is used. I have no permission to change that.

    • As said, you can use icons when an amount is mentioned. So it's ok if you describe an actual size or boost (like 3x3 or +30%), but not when it's mentioned in general (like when you state in the intro that a building provides attack and defense bonus).

      Mr.Quib (talk) 09:16, November 17, 2018 (UTC)

      Edit: the size picto now links to Size.

  • Hi,

    There is no need to remove capitals from Great Buildings, Daily Challenges etc. First because it's way easier to edit, second, these are game items or names as you will. A great building for me is somewhat different than a Great Building.

    For something like 'events' it's ok, but then [[events]] will work too, no need for the capital to make the link work.

    Mr.Quib (talk) 07:29, November 8, 2018 (UTC)

    • Cool I keep that in mind. Yesterday when rewriting the Coins article I started to think about the capitalization a little bit more. A lot of articles seem to have some German influence with the overuse of capitalized nouns which isn't proper for English. I have also made that mistake with my previous articles. Going forward I will capitalize only the game expressions such as you pointed out.

      Maybe there have been some discussions on that topic previously which I haven't seen yet. Or even a community guideline. If there is, I would like to read them.

    • As far as I can see the capitalization comes from Inno, ingame all descriptions start with caps. I've adapted to how it's done on this wiki, but I agree it works better with less caps, so I'll keep that in mind for the future.

      Mr.Quib (talk) 07:25, November 9, 2018 (UTC)

    • Hi, I've got some tips for you about caps and linking. You can make simpler links by using the following markups:

      [[Coins|coins]]      =>   [[coins]]

      [[Motivate|motivated]]   =>  [[motivate]]d

      [[Polish|polished]]   =>  [[polish]]ed

      [[Forge Point|Forge Points]]   =>  [[Forge Point]]s

      In short, you can start most links without capital and it will still work. (Almost) anything you add directly after the link will be added to the link.

  • Hi Kaitigg,

    Regarding the Confectionary: the article is about upgrade kits and since the Confectionary has none it doesn't seem to belong on the page.

    I'm also curious what buildings don't fit the 'when same size or smaller the building stays in the city' rule, since you removed that info.

      It gives me this message: NOTE: This page has been protected so that only established registred users can edit it.
