    • Hi welcome to the ED Wiki. You can compare your faction page with other ones such as Canonn . It should be good if it has a similar style. It shouldn't read like an advertisement. Maybe write the info in third person.

      I think it would be better to link to website pages as reference rather than images if possible.

      You can shorten headings like "About the Order of Enblackenment" to "About" and "Structure of the Order of Enblackenment" to "Structure".

  • Well you haven't been too in depth about the Federation and empire's recent Controversial history and the incident involving Aisling Duvall. Arissa Duvall and Empire of Achenar players and npcs alike are planning a surprise war against the Federation which will Arissa Duvall and other imperial leaders hope paralyze the Federation's Trade, Military, and civilian government also seizing the territory north of the Empire of Achenar. If you have read my coverage on the war on Reddit which I've seen each sides leadership encroachment on each other's territory. The empire will attack on Thanksgiving into Black Friday hopefully in their case to paralyze the Federation until Christmas with multiple attacks and seizure of territory so Arissa Duvall and other imperial officials want justice for Aisling Duvall for what ever the Federation has done it has clearly been a move too far away from peace talks I'm Afraid. So I suggest you choose your side wisely.

  • Hi Univero!

    You added a lot of content on the Ranks page.  Please note that this is a disambiguation / redirection page as indicated at the top, so new content should not be added there. It has links to each of the main article pages where any content can be added.

    As a general rule, whenever there is a main article link, only a brief one-line summary should be provided, to assist a visitor with finding content. Detailed content should always be located on the linked main article page.

    I've removed your additions from the Ranks page and relocated them to the Pilots Federation main article page.

    I also removed the text that was quoted from a post on the Frontier forum (about triple elite in a Sidewinder). Since a reference link to the post was already included, it's not necessary / appropriate to repeat the content here on the wiki, especially when the content is mainly editorial rather than factual.

    Cheers!

    • Alright, yeah it's better on the Pilots Federation page, thanks.

      I've moved the Triple Elite info below the general Ranks info, because Triple Elite is an addition to the official ranks. I've also fixed the thumbnail of Triple Elite so it's clickable and people can see a popup of the image. 

      By the way, I've also updated many pages with Celestials and put the images in the infobox.

  • Unless you are replacing an old image with a image with better lighting that is from the same distance and angle do not remove the original image, especially if the original is from an early version.  If its from an early version, then indicate it with a caption.  There is more than enough space to leave the old images.

    As for cleaning up "duplicate images", you appear to be removing blueprint images that are, strictly speaking, not exact duplicates of each other.  If the blueprints are in anyway different from one another (such as text, formating, colors, etc) all versions should be retained.

    I now face the problem that if I hit rollback to revert these changes it will rollback the changes to far, but it is also possible that I will have to do multiple undo edits to bring the images back. Any new images or changes that are removed during the reverts will need to be re-added

  • I saw your edit on the Elite Dangerous adding in how many devs there are, citing Obisidan Ant. I do not believe that citing third-party people should be done, especially so when Frontier on numerous occations have mentioned how huge the dev team is, on AMAs, livestreams, forums, whatever. I believe these are the references that should be used and try to avoid just quoting a section from the video. Office spaces aren't related to Elite, nor is "how much Frontier loves their products"

    I'll give you a few days to rephrase it if you want, otherwise I might revert the edit

  • Hi Univero, good catch on adding that page about respawn (death)..., it's a bit surprising it wasn't already on the wiki, as it's one of the first things new players want to learn about!

    I tightened up the writing style and added some additional info about the gameplay aspects, in particular the consequences of a respawn. I used links to point to other key pages where the info already exists in more detail, such as life support and insurance.

    Cheers!

  • you added the lines "The Harmony has a semi major axis of 180,000KM. Comparatively, the Ocellus station Vonarburg Co-Operative has a semi major axis of 50,000KM. "  just wanted to point out that the radius of earth is about 6,371 km (diameter of 12,742 km) which would make the size of the ocellus almost 4 times bigger than the Earth and the megaship about 14 times bigger than the Earth.  Either you are off by several decimal places or you are confusing the orbital axis (how wide the orbit is) with how wide/long the station/ship is.

  • Hey!

    Lets not have copy-pastes of articles within pages. Rather, read the article and write as short as you can that describes whatever section it's in. There's a reason Wikipedia never has articles with lots and lots of copy-pastes from journalistic articles etc..

    Another note. Don't overuse the categories where it's not fit, for example organisations category for the major powers (Fed, Empire, Alliance) nor bloat the front page with unnecessary links

      There are like 150+ mods for this game and who knows it could become more popular if it wasn't tucked away and suppressed.  

      There may be more board games in the future though. I think Elite will become a lot bigger in the future.

      A game that sells over 2 million copies is not a niche game imo. Also as more features get added it will gain many more players, easily double with space legs (elite feet).

      150 mods? Sure like to see som proof of that, afaik only graphical mods are available, such as EDFX and others

      If board games will become a prominent part in the ED universe, yes. But it just isn't at the moment and shouldn't be listed

      It has done incredibly well, but it is still a niche game, developers would think the same.

      What do you mean products not related? Lots of players use Motion Tracking and Voice Commands.

      Products such as TrackIR are not related to Elite Dangerous. Even if they were, commercial products that is not licensed under the ED license should not be on this wiki as it is will cause biased on products, become advertisement for the companies and so on. This is an encyclopaedia of a game, not an advertisement space.

      Lets put it this way, tonnes of people use monitors, why not have an article about them? Same goes for VR, chairs, audio, desk, keyboard, mouse etc. It is in no way related to Elite nor this wiki

    • Here there are 158 tools (mods) for ED. http://edcodex.info/?m=tools

      Right, we can wait till the RPG gains popularity or when there's more RPGs.

      I think it's expanding with the character creator and spacelegs so it's growing out of the typical space-sim niche.

      Well do we have an article about using the Oculus for virtual reality in ED? I htink it's a major feature of the game. It could be not specifically about the product.

  • Can you change the RPGS button on the main page to Role Playing Game please?  RPGS might be mistaken for rocket propelled grenades or something.  I had to click on the it to see what it actually was. Thanks

    • On the Star Wars wiki it's called RPGs. It's a commonly used term for role-playing games and maybe there will be more RPGs so it can be a category. Not sure if "Role Playing Game" fits in a button.

  • Hey!

    I saw you editing a few (a lot) of articles adding the same category. I'd just like to add that adding this category to the Template:CharacterInfobox would be a lot better, as just changing one template, used by (or should be used by) all characters will have this Infobox
