  • Greetings. I'm new to this place, but I signed up because I wanted to add the missing ships to the "Ships" page.  I like using it to compair ships a lot, and having some ships missing from it annoys me.  So instead of just telling other people to do it I wanted to help by doing it myself. Afterall, if noone is already adding those ships it means they propably dont have time to do so currently. However it sais the source is locked (which I expected but still). Seeing you're named as the moderator of this wiki I wanted to ask if I could have permission to add those ships to the "Ships" page.

    I'm not a diehard fan of Elite Dangerous who plays it all the time, nor have I played for years. But I do enjoy it. I dont know the ins and outs of the game either, but adding some more lines to a table (with the info of the ships already being on the wiki on their own seperate pages) shouldnt be to hard.

    Also, looking at recent comments on the "Ships" page the lack of the new ships seem to be mentioned a lot.



    So yeah. I'd like to help do that little thing if I may.

    If you have any questions (and I'd understand if you do, seeing I'm new and you dont know me) I'm open.

    • Hi Ethribin, yes it says only "established registered users" can edit the ships page. It means you have to contribute by adding other content to this wiki first. If you want to edit only the ships page then you should ask SpyTec for permission.

  • I've added Content Moderator rights. Since last year you understand how wiki workflow works and how to structure articles. With this you can protect articles, delete and move files and use rollback feature.

    With rollback it should only be used when there's vandalism, what it does is revert all their edits to last edited by different user and hides the edits from Special:WikiActivity

  • Update to "Council of Admirals" article, very much appreciated.  The article I'd cited in comments was more the product of research too - GalNet is kind of an ongoing tabloid of events which, it seems, might leave it more prone to error if not reviewed as carefully.  Also of note, the "Assembly" is often referred to as the "Alliance Parliament" which suggests a PM might need the confidence of the 'House' to select a leader.

  • Do you know who created the images you added to some of the rare goods?

    There is a competition being run on the Forum by FD, that this type of thing would be ideal.

  • Hey, dude, if you take my Screenshots from the Forum and publish them as yours, at least give credit to the person who made it. Or, at least, ask if you can steal stuff.

    • 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.

  • Hey!

    Lets not change the gallery for all articles, best to keep it to one style, i.e. default, on all except specific articles agreed upon from discussion

    • 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.

        Loading editor
    • Using less space doesn't make it better, nor does it help with keeping consistency between articles. Centering is arguably just a personal preference, and thus should be kept to a default

        Loading editor
    • 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.

      Update: I've changed the galleries to regular.

  • Hey!

    I noticed you added CharacterInfobox to David Braben and Ian Bell, this infobox is only for in-game characters and won't really work. And they shouldn't be in Key People category

    • Alright, yes meant to help manage the images and templates. I haven't seen DNYI on the wiki since a couple of months.

      I made a DeveloperInfobox and replaced the Characterinfobox on Braben and Bell's pages.

  • 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.

    • Sorry I will include the copyright information of the wikipedia images. If you find that any wikipedia image violates permission then you can remove it. I don't have the ability to remove images.

      For example this image http://elite-dangerous.wikia.com/wiki/File:Zirconium_crystal_bar.jpg =

      "Copyleft: This work of art is free; you can redistribute it and/or modify it according to terms of the Free Art License."

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium#/media/File:Zirconium_crystal_bar_and_1cm3_cube.jpg

      Edit: I've done most and will check and update the remaining images Tomorrrow.

    • 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. :)

    • Thanks for pointing that out. I checked and updated the wikimedia photos and added the license information.

  • hi there. thanks for your help on the wiki. I'm new.


    I have a faction i wanted to add to the wiki, i wanted to check if it's alright but no admins are around. i was going to do it myself and see if they react.

    • 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.
