Anyone want to discuss on how to layout this wikia?
i.e.: Should card pages be laid out more like Hearthstone gamepedia or Hex wikia , or something else?
-I'm looking to MTGsalvation, the hearthstone gamepedia and summoner's legion wikias for basic makeup of the pages. I'm on phone and I'll add links later, but I'm trying to get the card pages to somewhat borrow from the look of hearthstone gamepedia. I'm interested in how they automate certain card pages though, so I may try to mess around with that in the future. Front page I want to look like either summoner's legion or mtgsalvation wikia's main page, but I'm mostly fine with anything.
-The 1P and costing, I'm waiting until they show off more cards with restrictions (like champion of chaos)in the card text as those are easy to edit out and make uniform icons with. When that happens I'll spend a day adding those as one letter templates and updating everything.
-Today or tomorrow I'll try replacing the site name in the top left with a nicer looking logo. Made one yesterday actually, but it ended up being too small size wise.
Sounds like a plan to me. I was actually thinking about making a logo too but don't have much experience with making images.
As for the front page, I'll be waiting for the links as I'm not quite sure which pages you mean.
Well I got distracted rather than making a logo for the top left, I made a browser icon that appears next to the words in the tab. I have a couple different version of the letter E,(including one that uses a greyish-white instead of white in the center, etc.) but does that look good?
Feels a tiny bit off to me,(maybe I should make it a couple rows smaller?) but it's close enough for now.
I think I got what you meant with the main page appearance. I like the Hearthstone Gamepedia a lot to be honest. Especially the division to heroes, classes and then different cards and mechanics etc. The bullet lists and categories like you said. Relying on a good main page with good navigation feels like a lot better idea than concentrating on the upper navigation bar.
I don't think we're in a hurry with anything. It's not like we have any deadlines or something. :P The browser icon looks really good but I agree that it's a bit off. I'd say that the upmost horizontal line of the E is a bit too long and thin when compared to the lowest one. Can't say for sure but that's the quick impression. The colors are perfect in my opinion.
Probably so. That idea crossed my mind as well but like I said, I'm new to Wikia and was mostly just trying out how things work.
I mean most wikias do that, but in my opinion they end up looking super bad, especially for a card game where you want the image fully displayed.
I agree. While the automatic listing is nice, the lack of control over a part of the page is annoying.
Well I've been looking around how to do the automatic listing thing. Dcl is a method I've found so far, but it only lists out all the pages in a category, so I'm going to see if there's a way around that or another way to do it to better control the page.
It's probably something with Java to be honest, which I'm really hesitant about touching.
Actually I just found arrays. Let me see if I can set a category to be an array.
What do you think?
