Figured out that the Lua Infoboxbuilder that Wikia offers actually has a value type called "split". Figured it out looking through the code of Infoboxbuilder and saw it, I wouldn't have found it anywhere else as it's not mentioned that much anywhere else nor is it on the documentation.
I put up an example on User:SpyTec/Template:Infoboxbuilder Split. More or less, it allows us to have two colums, where the first row is the labels rather than first column. The other rows below it are the values. It should be able to handle Methods as well for custom modules, but not yet tested.
With this we can probably produce some interesting infoboxes, will experiment more with Lua and see if we can get some custom infobox builder to collapse whole section…Read more >
So as I've not been able to edit the wiki that much lately, been mostly focusing on other things, I've not really had a time to do this properly. But I figured this is as good time as any.
As of right now, we haven't set out any guidelines on how articles should be structured, nor have we set up any guidelines on what pages should consist of. So I would like to have a discussion with avid editors and visitors at some point on what is good and what is bad, for us to eventually create articles about it. I'd think that we should have this discussion on the forum in a short while, and to which I recommend people to come up with small drafts (just to get a general idea of what it should contain, doesn't have to be gramatically or structurally co…

We recently got our interwiki link approved between the English and Russian version of the site! This helps out the Russian people who use Google Translate on our wiki to get what they want, but now that we have a Russian sister site, we urge you to go over there and flesh it out in Russian.
Having different langauges can help out people who does not speak English very well, it is something we want you to create and manage.
We have already interlinked the Ships available in the game, and Russian people are free to interlink the other articles!Read more >
There's a `Purchase Locations` heading on every ship and module page, including the Shipyard page, that I don't think should be on the Wikia. My reasoning behind it is that it's better to provide information on where it's more likely to find these ships, modules, etc than what some systems and stations have. And I don't think the Wikia is a place to see all the locations for it, if so I think it's better to provide some systems that are scattered throughout the populated space.
As of right now there isn't an app that lists a station's ships and modules, which is most likely due to them not being completely static and that most people don't need them. As soon as there is a decent app that gives you possible ship and module locations then we'll…Read more >
The GalNet News website has been updated and isn't working correctly. There has also been changes to how links works and all references now point to none-existant articles. But these shouldn't be changed, or cannot be changed, until Frontier fixes this.Read more >
