Wiki Fix-up
« on: November 29, 2017, 12:25:08 PM »
     Just wanted to inform whoever is reading this that I changed the description of "Invoke Unicron." I changed the description from "Warps Zenith Devourer to current planet" to "Spawns Zenith Devourer on current planet" The cheat doesn't actually warp the current Devourer to the planet. Instead, it spawns a new one while leaving the old one on whatever planet it's on. The old description is a little misleading so I changed it.
     Edit 1: Also added "*Now obsolete" next to the cheat that gives you crystals.
     Edit  2: Another peeve of mine is that on the Minor Factions page, it doesn't tell you if you just turn it on or you can set the intensity from 1-10. Added it to all the factions I know for sure that you can set the intensity, I'll look either tonight or tomorrow for the rest of them. Not sure if I should add "can only be turned on or off" for the ones that can only be turned on or off.

  Very important- For some reason this page https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War:Minor_Factions is much less descriptive than https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War:Minor_Factions_OLD yet the main page links to the former. I have been editing the former unintentionally. Please put the the second link as the default. That one is updated for 8.whatever and is extremely more descriptive than the first. I have attached two screenshots showing the difference. They are both at 50% zoom to compare the descriptions.

Edit: I figured out how to make it link to the more descriptive page.

Edit 2: hit a roadblock. I can't change the bolded title of the page at the top, so it still says OLD.

https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War:Minor_Factions will be referred to as NEW and https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War:Minor_Factions_OLD will be referred to as OLD for this post.

To change the bolded title of a page, you have to actually move the page entirely, which is currently admin only to avoid mass chaos, confusion, and AIP increases.

Are we sure that OLD is actually more up-to-date? If OLD has some new and some old information, while NEW has only new information, copying and pasting the content from OLD to NEW may be better than moving OLD to NEW.

On a side note, I think tables would look better for the lists of factions, so I may do a mockup of that if someone reminds me.

The OLD one I want to be the current page has a lot more information on what the factions are and how they work. That's really it, other than the top of NEW saying that the page is still a work in progress, while the OLD one says it's up to date using the tiny rectangle. I also thought that changing the top title would be easy as editing it, but what do I know? So, I'll probably just copy and paste the stuff from OLD to NEW.

I'd make sure the OLD page information is as up to date or more so than NEW before copying it over. If it is though, we can just straight copy and paste.

Its quite easy to rename pages when you arent trying to overwrite an existing page, but still not terribly hard (Move NEW to OLD1, move OLD to NEW, move OLD1 to whatever name we want).

Speaking of that little box, I need to update the template for it to say what the current version is so people know how updated it is.

I got around to making a new template for versioning, and would like to hear everyone's thoughts on it. You can find it and the documentation for it at https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=Template:TestVersion.
