Talk:Weapon

From Albion Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Okay, do you think the Weapons page needs its own category like the page Buildings has Category:Buildings ? If so what category and subcategory do you think would be relevant? Inseed (talk) 00:56, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
I was just wondering the same. I'm thinking that since the weapons page is pretty much built out, we might as well use it as the category page. If there were tons of other weapons to be added then I'd say formal category but this page and the weapons pages are on a fast track. -- Whipimedia (User Page) 05:38, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Layout is changed, do you like it now? Its more as a category page ;)--Cynsiss (talk) 17:09, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Yes the page layout is fine like this. I think categories are still needed to have a "wiki" structure, but that might be done in the future. On the minecraft gamepedia (which is a huge wiki with nearly 5k pages) for instance, they have http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Item but they also have the "Category:Item" http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Category:Items and the same for armor http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Category:Armor http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Armor . Good job on the page ! Keep up the nice work :) Inseed (talk) 17:30, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
I prefer the way we have control over the layout and organization of a page like this as apposed to the built-in category page. I agree that we can have both though, but keep in mind that the main page links to these user-built pages. That for me, is another reason to build them out imo. The pro/con about category pages is that pro: the auto link to the page attached to the category, and Con: they don't allow for choice in organization as an auto-link, but instead just place every page in alphanumerical order. The way we're doing it, lets us better organize the presentation of the data, instead of just having a loose list of links. -- Whipimedia (User Page) 18:23, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
It's perfect the way it is now Inseed (talk) 02:43, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

New Tables... Looks great.[edit source]

I really like the tables, great job! However it looks like one of my divs was copied into the mix so I realigned the tables so that they are not crashing towards the right. I'm assuming this was not intentional. Everything should be lined up nicely now. If not then let me know what browser you are using. and post a screenshot. -- Whipimedia (User Page) 18:41, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Hey man, I justed coppied your table into this sheet. I did not know how to make a table. I use Google Chrome now and I have two tables next to each other and not underneatt each other.--Cynsiss (talk) 19:22, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Yes they are just like before my edit. IE, 2 were side by side with a 3rd table under. This is still the case, except that the tables are not floating right and jumbled. Another option is to make the tables smaller and have them all 3 side by side, or stack all three. But if they are stacked there will be a lot of empty space to the side. Do you have a preference? No matter which one we use, it will display differently on larger/smaller screens. -- Whipimedia (User Page) 21:45, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Grouping weapon pages by type[edit source]

I believe it would be simpler and easier to read if there was only one page for each type of weapon, merging each group of three pages together. Weapons of the same type have a lot in common, and share active and passive skills. It would be easier to explain, understand and compare weapons this way. A lot of common text wouldn't have to be repeated. 132.166.177.50 13:04, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
