    • While I have some concerns that the removed text might upset or offend someone, edit warring is against our Code of Conduct, and can lead to a block. This is a friendly, informal notice, but if the edit warring continues, official warnings may be issued.

      As for the removed text, real-world religion and fiction are always a combination that risks causing offense. In this case, since Malos is the main antagonist / villain of XC2, mentioning that particular definition of the term "Logos" could be interpreted to mean that XC2 is making a statement against a real-world religion.

  • Hey, I just wanted to apologize if i caused any problems with the Blade page by changing the order of the blades. I just figured that for the sake of the Wiki they should be ordered in the same way as the Blade album in-game.

    • Hi Ixbran. There is no problem, do not worry, not a major point at all. In fact, the images order matches the list order in tables. This order is (if no one has changed something) the revealing order of Blades, one by one, by Monolith Soft (especially Rare Blades, and particularly the announcement given before the release of the game). But your point about ordering in the same way as the Blade album in-game, may be an interesting proposal, something the community can also discussed (there is other discussions about the Blade page, for example how to manage the Common Blades, only here or with an additional dedicated page...)

  • Hey WA, when you make a new page (for example Pyra's Acqua Pazza) and it's in a high state of completeness, could you please NOT include the stub template?

    Unnecessary stub templates reduce the usefulness of the stub category by making it more difficult to find pages which actually need work. They also drive me crazy, because it seems like no one besides me ever removes the stub templates.

    • Hi UB, yes you are right, I did not pay enough attention when copying/pasting article draft models. I have removed hundreds and hundreds stub templates from many XCX pages (NPCs, locations, enemies, etc.), so I know what you feel!

    • Thanks, WA. I thought it might be a copy/paste issue.

  • Hey WA. I know you've been less active lately, but if you have any thoughts on the Spoiler Policy, I'd love to get your input in the Spoiler Policy Thread. The discussion has slowed, and comments from people who haven't said anything yet might help get it going again. Thanks.

  • 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.

      Loading editor
    • 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.
