  • Hello WiseAdventurer,

    Thank you for your help with editing the healing page. Looks much better organized and apptly titled. I'm still working on it, I have more info to add, expand the arts section and notes. It will take a few weeks while I finalize summarizing all relevent information from the game

    Thank you, LLL

    • Hi Lastlaughlol. No problem, the correct article format was needed. However if you plan to create new pages for XC1 or XCX such as this one ("non-obviously needed" like a missing item, enemy, NPC, etc. in XC2), please beforehand propose it to the community in the Wiki board of the Forum. Note that you can always create a page model on your userspace, leading to a hyperlink like [[:User:Lastlaughlol/Healing]] corresponding to the link "https://xenoblade.wikia.com/wiki/User:Lastlaughlol/Healing". Thank you.

    • Will do so accordingly. Sorry about that, it was actually a spur of the moment thing. I had never created an wiki page before or even edited one. I did not know that there were active administrators on who curated material.

      Any future pages I will be posting to my profile first, then ask the forum about it as per the instructions of Unnamed Bonus.

  • Hey WiseAdventurer,



    I was wondering if we should add possible conversations you can have with named NPCs to their articles. I don't know if this would be important information or not, so I thought I'd ask you before I started doing that. What're your thoughts? Please let me know.

  • Just so you know, I created new templates, Template:Begin spoiler and Template:End spoiler, and used them in one page, Pyra. I got tired of dealing with the complex markup that you have to copy and paste everywhere, when the tags can easily be templated. Keep them, delete them, spread them, remove them, do whatever you want with them.

    • Actually, those are probably going to be going away altogether, or at the very least heavily altered from the current state. There are multiple issues that arise with the tags as they stand, both technically and aesthetically (see Thread:88998). You're free to use them, but just know that, barring major issues, they will probably be removed altogether.

  • Hi WA.

    Now that the Code of Conduct has been adopted, I'd like to look into the existing blocks we have in place, especially the infinite ones, to see if we should remove them. I've sent a message to CM about his and my existing blocks. Feel free to comment.

    I see four blocks active from you.

    • The block on Bananas-reborn and the related IP block look okay to me.
    • According to Special:Contributions/Sukie333, Suki333 is blocked on all of Wikia. That probably makes our block redundant.

    Fgrfffad is more complicated. The user definitely deserved to be blocked. I'm not sure it needs to be infinite though. They used sexually explicit language in their vandalism. That's a violation of Wikia's Terms of Use, so would be a Severe violation under the new rules. That would mean an instant 3 month block. However this is a case where we might invoke the clause about consulting with another admin to issue a longer than standard block.

    With all that in mind, I'd like to reduce the block from being infinite. They've already been blocked for about 4 months. I'm thinking a total block time of 6 months feels right.

    However, we don't have to apply to new rules to an old block, so we could go for longer if you feel strongly about it.

    Also, this isn't meant to be a criticism of the decision you made at the time. I have more infinite blocks in place than any other Admin, so I'd be a hypocrite to criticize anyone else for doing the same.

    • Hi UB, looking at nowadays, I think your points cogent and justified, I agree with you. I also agree with CM's answer to you on his wall. Thank you for taking care of this and my apologies for having somewhat forgotten to look at this.

        Loading editor
    • I've unblocked Sukie333.

      I'm having second thoughts about Fgrfffad. Looking at those edits again, I'm considering whether to report them to Wikia. If we do that, I'm not sure we should modify our block until Wikia responds.

      And hey, no apologies are necessary.

  • Hi, I have 68 photos I would like to upload, but I believe it would take too long for me to do it. They are pictures of every Map in the game (other than Indol, the Ancient Ship, and the Land of Challenge). Is there a way I could send you these photos, and you could have a bot upload and categorise them all?

      Loading editor
    • Hi Vincent, I can use my bot afterwards to categorise them, add a series of info, however bots cannot uplaod images automatically, but it is easier to upload the images yourself on the wiki, thanks to this wiki tool, Special:MultipleUpload. Juste one additional thing, you should please name your image files you want to upload with an explicit name, the name of the location itself, instead of something like screenshot01, screenshot02... or anything else. Many thanks.

    • Ok, I will begin uploading in 5 minutes.

  • Hi there. I'm trying to update Art information, but in all of the arts pages, they use a special table that I cannot find anywhere. I've looked through the templates, and have resorted to using regular unformatted tables for now. If you know where I can find this specially formated table, please let me know.

  • Hey! I came across a comment of yours where you stated that you played XC1 in japanese, french and spanish (if I recall correctly?) you surely have noticed that some of the names are really different (french Hayenthe names for exemple have nothing in common with the english nor the japanese ones because the structure chosen for the naming process is totaly different...). So I was wondering if we could "simply" (I know it's not that simple and it's really time-consuming...) add names in different languages for the NPCs? Sorry if this comes off as lazy or offensive, but I spent so much time wandering from one NPC page to the other to find the one I'm searching for that I figured asking couldn't hurt...? The wikis in other languages are far from completed (comparing to this one) and it would maybe help some people...? (And sorry for my english, I'm slowly improving xwx' )

    • Hi StereoD. What we normally do is to add the Japanese name in the introductory sentence such as '''Satata''' (Japanese: {{lang|ja|タツ}}, ''Tatsu'') for Satata, with an additional note in the "Trivia" section if important. For the other language, we normally just add the language inter-wiki link a the bottom of the page, such as [[de:Shulk]], [[fr:Shulk]], [[es:Shulk]], [[it:Shulk]] for Shulk. I know that the "wiki sisters" are not as developed as this one, but a page can be created there and add the language link here at the bottom of the corresponding page.

      In any case, proposals, ideas to share, suggestions are welcome, but since they concern the Wiki and we are a community, people are invited to share them by opening a thread in the forum in order to be seen by the whole community. So do not hesitate to do this and share your ideas with the community.

  • I'm curious as to why you replaced the Futurerelease templates with XC2Spoiler templates. This DLC has nothing to do with the plot, so "this page may contain spoilers regarding the plot" (as it says on the spoiler template) is irrelevant. On top of that, the text on the Futurerelease template makes it clear that it can also be used on recently released material, which perfectly describes the content you're adding.

      Loading editor
    • Initially, I copy/paste model templates, I did not really think more about the spoiler templates beyond possible spoilering content. I am finally OK with their removal. However, the futurerelease template does not suit, the DLC launch is today in some countries (in a few hours).

        Loading editor
    • The futurerelease template is still compatible with Challenge Mode. The notice says "upcoming or recent release". Personally, I would say we can keep Futurerelease templates up to a week after release (so that we have some template during spoiler evaluation).

        Loading editor
    • I'm with LB on this one.

      I thought we had previously agreed to use this template, then manually review the pages it's on, instead of converting every use of it over to a regular spoiler template. As I recall, the reason for that was to avoid having pages that are unnecessarily marked as having spoilers on them.

    • Thank you CM for having answered Rikifanpon479 during my absence.

      Rikifanpon479, in any case, when you edit pages, it is very useful for everyone and the wiki management itself to leave an edit summary, very convenient even much later when you look at the page history.

  • I've started off with some proposals for the new table formatting in my sandbox page, using the Ether Mod page as an example (here's the specific edit for posterity).

    For both, I've taken the "Obtained" column and turned it into its own comprehensive table inspired by the formatting of the XC1 Gem pages.  I've now included each applicable individual part's Tiger! Tiger! locations and drop rates, which I've begun the process of deciphering and recording from the datamine docs.  The first proposal mostly follows the same style as the old formatting, while the second even more closely resembles the Gem pages' style, which I'm personally rather partial to.  I've also considered moving/copying the creation costs to the Crafting entries of the Sources table, though I'm a tad worried it'll make it seem more cluttered than it needs to.

    Let me know if there's any changes we should make before we make this live, so to speak.

    • Since you're making a formatting/styling proposal (which usually requires the approval of the community as a whole, not just one admin, before implementation), I would suggest moving this to the Wiki Forum boards. It increases visibility to the wider community, and user message walls are normally for messages that affect only the recipient and sender (i.e. not something that will have major effects on multiple pages throughout the wiki).

        Loading editor
    • I'll get on that, then.  Thank you for letting me know.

        Loading editor
    • Yes, it is better to share important/major proposals with the community on the wiki forum for a wider visibility.
