Hi, lots of screenshots on this wiki were not made by the users who uploaded it. They're used to enhance articles with visual information. Nowhere do I and most other users claim those screenshots as their own. For example I uploaded the logo of NASA, but don't claim it as my own.
You can add author information to images by clicking on More Info and then add a description.
Hi, okay it uses less space and centers the images on the page which improves navigation and viewing. The default gallery has the images aligned to the left side and uses more space with less images per row.
Well when images use less space in a gallery by having 4 images instead of 3 per row means it requires less time to navigate a gallery and more images can be viewed at the same time. That makes it more efficient and saves space. Keeping consistency can be done by making it the same in all galleries. Whether it's better is subjective though. I can change it if you prefer the old style with more space between images and 3 images per row.
Hey. You can't just take images from Wikimedia Commons and use them without attribution. The license requires you to specify the author and the license, preferably by linking to the original file page on Wikimedia Commons that you stole it from.
Checking your uploads again, I wonder if you checked for permission at all. Is the raw fish a stock photo?! Please specify the exact source of all your uploads if you didn't create them yourself. What you are doing seems to be downright illegal and might well get you into trouble.
wow, that was quick, thank you very much :) I think it's wonderful and fine now.
The reason why I was so insisting on this problem: I have seen people who got very angry and started legal actions against people not adhering exactly to the license on Wikimedia Commons. And stock photos are even worse - if they catch you copying a stock photo, they force you to pay license fees of over 1000€ :(
It's nice that you found a replacement that can be freely used. Thank you again. :)
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.
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.
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
Okay such as these Eagle blue print images. I thought there's only need for 1 blue print due to the minor differences. Some images were so dark that could barely make out that there was a ship. I will keep it from now on though and re-add some newer images.
Images that already show the ship in the same kind of angle should be pruned. The better lighting or resolution one should be kept. Duplicates with minor changes, such as the two links you posted, should not be two separate files but rather just upload a new version to the original one..
The two near duplicates show the Imperial Eagle at different design changes. Essentially, one is a pre implementation drawing with the hard points in a different location as they were when implemented. Strictly speaking, one should be labeled pre-implementation blueprint and the other post implementation blueprint. The differences can be considered the difference between concept art and final in game version. I feel both should remain.
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, that was a quote from Obsidian Ant's forum post which other people who visited Frontier also confirmed. I thought it was interesting to note how big the offices are where they work to develop Elite Dangerous, that it has lots of ED decorations and they're very proud about their games. It's more in depth information about the development team.
