  • Hello, We're excited to have Eternal Card Game Wikia as part of the Wikia community!

    There's still a lot to do; here are some helpful tips and links to get your wikia going:

    All of the above links are a great place to start exploring, and have fun!

  • Great job with the Eternal Wikia pages!

    I'm also getting so hyped over the game (in addiiton to ESL) that might as well use the energy on the wikia page. I have couple ideas and suggestions brewing in my mind but I'll check through the pages first.

    • I got gist of the basics but there are couple areas I didn't find how to modify. For example, that navigation bar with "Cards", "Mechanics" and "Community" on the upper edge of the page.

      I was thinking of making pages like "Basic rules" and category pages for different card types. One thing with the navigation bar was to have similar system as Hearthstone wikia has where the cards could be grouped by different types or lands.

      Adding on the "Strategy" of different cards could be a bit early at this point (although there was quite a bit of information how some of them work together on the stream) but I think we could add some information under the "Notes" on what the special effects on the cards do; while you can always hop to "Skills" page, it would be more convenient to have a brief description on the card page as well.

      I also got to #ESL channel (although will probably be idle most of the time as I'm using Irssi) so we can talk there too.

    • Removed the table of contents from the front page.

      Only admins can edit the top bar I think. Spit me your ideas and I can edit them.

      I also made a template where you rollover a card and it appears to the side. Thunderbirdfor example.

  • This happened when I played Unstable Form on a (10-cost) Skycrag Wyvarch twice

    Became 11/11 Golem on the first cast, then a 12/12 golem on the second

  • Hi yumyum,

    I just started playing Eternal and thought I would check out the wiki. I enjoy doing this kind of stuff in my spare time, tinkering and trying to make cool stuff work. I did a lot of the work on my previous card game's wiki (Solforge) so if you see any features that you like, let me know and I can try to implement them here. One that I really like is being able to mouse over a keyword to see a description of it. Otherwise I'll just stick to updating card pages and adding other content.

    Cheers!

  • Hey yumyum,

    are you planning on adding content for the new set? How about card pages? btw: saw there are some of the card pages from previous sets missing. Where did you get the card images from? Is there a database like Gatherer for MtG?

    Cheers, man!

    • I got most of them off "eternal.cards", though some of the early ones I captured and edited myself. Eternal Warcry is also another good site.

      I have free time Sunday and Monday I will try to upload a lot of the eternal cards

  • Hi yumyum,

    I thought I might drop by your page and say hello. I just started playing Eternal with the 1.28 patch. Coming from Hearthstone and their wiki, I felt stuff on the card sets and the campaigns were lacking, so I have started working a little on that.

    Thanks!

  • Hi Yumyum,

    First I wanted to thank you for those quick fixes to the pages I made, especially that Card Hover template should come in handy :)

    I have a few questions about the wiki...

    Card Hover
    Minor concern here... it seems that on mobile the template inserts the full size image in the text (in the mobile preview anyway, I don't have a smart phone or tablet to confirm its real-world effect). Is there a way to turn it into a normal link on mobile? I think the mobile skin strips out styling, but if not maybe something like a media query could fix it (I don't know much about CSS, I haven't used it myself beyond some basics).
    Card Images & Pages
    Does the ultimate goal of this wiki include uploading images and making pages for every card, basically making a full database? Or are they only used as needed as examples for other articles? I don't want to step on any toes by mass uploading images if the plan is to point users to another database site instead (like the one linked under the Community dropdown).
    Categories
    On a similar note, if the goal is to upload images for each card, is there a plan in place for categorizing them? I see most of the current ones are currently uncategorized. I don't want to mess around with it if you prefer them that way.
    Card Infobox
    I read the old forums discussion and see the draft with the newer infobox formatting... any plans to roll it out? I could tinker with it in a separate sandbox if you have some issues that need fixing.

    Sorry for the massive post, I just wanted to check these things before mucking about too much. I've been active on another gaming wiki since last June, so I'm not exactly a newbie with this stuff, but every wiki has their own way of doing things. Great job on the wiki so far!

    • Great! I may get into cleaning up categories a bit, starting with non-content stuff like templates and images. I'll come up with a draft for some DWD copyright/fair use template as well, I may as well add it while I'm on the image pages anyway. Even if the template itself gets updated the template call can be in place.

      Btw, I noticed you have the default root category 'Browse' nested under a 'Site' category. Any particular guidelines for how these should be used?

    • Heres a first pass at the image attribution template: {{CardImage}}

      It includes an update to the {{Fairuse}} template for freeuse/copyright disclaimer.

      Example in use

  • Hey Yumyum,



    Is there like a to do list or in progress list of pages? I don't mind making stuff but guidance is always key to me. Thanks for your time.

    • Just uploaded the missing Dusk Road cards, so all the player-collectable cards should now have images (note: Copperhall Bailiff's image appears to be missing but its available here, it just needs a spelling fix).

      I started taking screenshots of non-collectibles (i.e. token cards) and ai-only (gauntlet, campaign) cards, but it will be a bit before I upload them. I'll need to make new photoshopping templates because they only appear in matches where they appear smaller and aren't exact 1:1 scaled down of the larger collection images.

      I have a bunch more token-frame images for the non-collectibles ready to go too, if we want to use them in hover tooltips.

      Other cards with pre-existing images may need updating if they've been altered by game patches, let me know if you notice any.
