I agree, Although since he seems to have removed himself from the situation and quite possibly the wiki itself I believe the issues have been resolved. Let me know if there is anything more concrete I can help you with and just try not to feed the gremlins after midnight.
I pull the pictures from the unity resource server the game uses. Any resource the game pulls can be acquired manually by utilizing the resource address directly within a browser or with a utility such as curl. Then I just extract the resources from the unity files.
There are plenty of resources online if you are interested in learning the internal structure of unity based games. The resource links can be acquired through the debug logs or directly in the files if you just do a search for this string : dy258if90dpna (this is part of the base address for the resource server).
Seeing as no one else seemed to have an opinion, I'll ask you, and the other Admins.
MaCoPi and I finished our Breeding Index page, and all the sub-pages for it. The question is where on the wiki to link it. I would like to replace the table at the bottom of the Breeding page with a link to the new pages, they provide about the same information, plus some, but I'm not sure if that is a good idea or not. Maybe just add the link without removing the table? or keep them separate? I know the current breeding table doesn't get updated on a regular basis, so this may be an improvement...
I think both tables are useful for different things. Due to the fact that the tables are organized differently it might be easier to find what you are looking for by using one table or the other. Also the original breeding table is sortable.
My opinion is keep the old breeding table but also provide a link to the new breeding index above or underneath it. Have no preference as to whether the tables should be linked up, probably would depend on how difficult it will be to mantain.
I've decided to take a short break from Admin-ing, and would like to nominate Pihvi to take my place. I was actually going to nominate him anyhow, after all the work he has done on the Earning Rates and some other major pages, and his helpfulness in the forums, but I am going to push up my timeline and ask your opinion now.
I too agree that Pihvi is an excellent contributor. I am however, saddened by how all of this came to pass...the last couple of days were difficult on the Wiki. I apologize if you feel I over-stepped my bounds and "played moderator" during the flame war. I just couldn't idle there any longer.
I do suppose this kind of makes Pihvi a Phoenix Dragon, rising out of the ashes of a poor turn of events. Pihvi could be you reborn, if you think about it, Twilight.
Please know that I don't think any less of you--or any contributor for that matter. There was just too much tension. I really do hope you don't think any less of me, and that we may reconcile.
No, just couldn't find the smaller version, actually had to cut that one out of a spritemap. There are some larger versions of the elements in the spritemap but the original ones I had uploaded were found separately. Some of the stuff has moved around though so I haven't found the equivalent smaller image.
I've been working on a FAQ page for the wiki. If you want to take a look and maybe make some suggestions/changes/additions please do so. I didn't order it in any way, just added stuff as I thought of it.
I think it's a good start. Maybe a different color on Q and A, but I'm mostly content oriented, so how it is presented is secondary to me. And if the FAQ list gets long, it would be nice to have them grouped in categories.
Related to this, there are some wiki pages that are not easily found, unless I make a bookmark when I stumble on them (or search for them). I don't say they should all be added to the menu, but maybe it could be improved with a sitemap for most of the "interesting" wiki pages.
I also like the idea of a sitemap of some type. The navigation at the top of the pages is limited in how much can be listed. That would be the next project I guess...
Take a look at the FAQ again, I think I incorporated all of the ideas from above. For now I just made all the Qs & As different colors, someone pick the one they think looks best and we'll go with that. I agree the red is not as nice as some of the others. Content is nice, but presentation has to come into it somewhere.
I can't decide what color looks the best, but a few of them might be too close to the background.
But I was actually thinking of one color for Q and another for A. I don't know what color a question and an answer usually is on the web. But it could for example be one of the red colors for Q and one of the blue colors for A.
I can see that. I know some of the colors won't work, but I just wanted to see how all of them looked.
We can do 2 diferent colors. I glanced around the web, and the most common combinations seem to be Red & Green, Red & Blue, and Blue & Green. With the grey background I think Blue & Green won't set each other off enough, so Red & Blue sounds good to me. I'll put them in and see how they look.
Note: Not all questions should have a unique id if we decide to use them as an anchor. It should only be used with questions that will stay permanently on the FAQ. E.g. the question about the space element will be obsolete "soon".
Sorry, been out of town for a few days taking the family to the beach. Should be able to upload some of the new pictures soon just been busy with life. Still waiting for the facebook version to update since it has the highest res pics for the space essence and icons to match.
When you get a chance, could you by any chance pull good copies of the Tsunami Dragon Egg and Profile? Also the Chameleon Dragon profile we have on the wiki is low res. Sanctyl is working on something using the Profile pics, and a good copy would help immensely.
How have you been? Haven't seen much from you lately. I thought I was the one that was going low profile... :-)
Between the kids starting school again and some large projects at work have been absolutely swamped. Some nights I don't even get to get on my personal computer, and to top it all off my phone has been having issues and refues to update anything so I can't even play on DW :( However wil try to upload the pics at the latest tonight.
I'll be going on vacation for the next week, so I won't be around as much to edit as I usually am. I will have my laptop with me, so I may pop in from time to time, and I'll hopefully be around when the Space update hits...
