  • Hi, Tikeyman!

    I was wondering if you wanted to be promoted to a bureaucrat? This would give you the ability to grant admin status to any contributors as you see fit.

    Best regards,

    Raylan

  • Hi Tikey,

    So after much back and forth I have decided to move my efforts to the Curse wiki. I had a long chat with their senior wiki manager and she managed to convince me. I think in the long term it will be better for the game as Curse should be able to promote Hex better than Wikia. This wiki will stay open of course and I don't know who else will move over to Curse, but we would love to have you over there contributing.

    I wanted to let you know as soon as possible so you don't potentially do double work. If you do decide to stay here, best of luck and thanks for everything you have contributed!

    Cheers!

    • Hi Rapkannibale. I'm Brandon, a community support manager here at Wikia. I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to talk before you made the decision to move to Curse. While I obviously don't know the specifics of the conversation you had with them, I just wanted to say a few things about how Wikia is a great place to promote a video game wiki. I also said this on Tikeyman's wall.

      Wikia's network of video game wikis is the largest on the Internet, so there's no better place to me to have visibility for a wiki in the world of games. Wikia even has official partnerships with gaming companies like Sony Online Entertainment, with the PlanetSide 2 Wiki being the official wiki community for the game. Our partnerships with gaming companies continue to grow.

      Another great feature we have for gamers is our Game Guides app. This gives players quick and easy access to information about all their favorite mobile and video games, with guides and walkthroughs that are created and maintained by communities just like this one. The link I gave you has links to where you can download the app in the App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android).

      Our promote tool can also let your wiki be featured on Wikia.com.

      The last thing I wanted to point out is that, in terms of basic exposure, Wikia's Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and reputation as a large site with lots of great content can make a big difference. To give you a comparison to another Curse wiki, the Fallout Wiki forked from Wikia to Curse. Our Fallout Wiki continues to receive much higher pageviews than the fork, which means more people are coming to The Fallout Wiki on Wikia than to the fork.

      I hope that clarifies some things about Wikia. If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. I'd be happy to talk with you about them. Thanks!

  • Hi there, 

    As far as I know you created the templates for cards. Was wondering if you could create one for mercenaries as well?

    Cheers!

  • First of I appreciate your effort.  I like to make similar site in Japanese.  Is it ok if I use your template?  Also, how do I set CSS or whatever you are doing so the color of template background changes based on your selection.

    Thanks

  • You are an active user of Hex TCG Wiki. Recently someone posted on the forums a link to a competing wiki:

    hex.gamepedia.com

    Now the discussion is here. Should we, or should we not make a switch?

    I personally am pro, because hex.gamepedia.com looks so much better... There's still some work, since most cards have to be copied over, but it's still early so now is the most opportune time to make a switch.

    Give me a sign regarding your opinions. We need to keep the wiki community together.

    • I would like to make another case for the gamepedia wiki. The connection with curse.com is so important for the growth of this game. Wikia doesn't have anything extra to offer, compared to curse.

      At this point the differences between the two are minimal, regarding content. It took me less than a day to get the gamepedia up to date with regards to cards, equipment might take a bit longer, but I don't think that will be that much longer.

      Regarding looks, the gamepedia one already has better looks, we can still change them later, but they're already good now.

      Regarding the wiki itself, gamepedia has better advertisement placement and it's capable of the same stuff. The difference is that we'll have more capabilities on the backend, thanks to curse being more involved than the wikia crew.

      So I'll make a last attempt to get you guys convinced. Remember, if any switching were to happen, it best happen now. So take a good look at the real differences between the wikis, content can always be brought up to date. I strongly feel gamepedia has more pros than wikia.

    • Hi all. I’m Brandon, a community support manager here at Wikia. First of all, I’m glad to see you saying you plan to stick around on Wikia! If you still have any questions, I want to address a few points that were brought up in this conversation.

      Since you have concerns about splitting the community, it’s important to note that, if this wiki forks to another host, the wiki here on Wikia will remain open, so the editing effort and the community will be split. That’s why we call it a fork; just like a fork in the road, one wiki becomes two.

      Additionally, Wikia’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and reputation as a large site with lots of great content can make a big difference. If you want a comparison to another Curse wiki, the Fallout Wiki forked from Wikia to Curse. Our Fallout Wiki continues to receive much higher pageviews than the fork, which means more people are coming to The Fallout Wiki on Wikia than to the fork.

      In terms of benefits specific to video gaming, Wikia’s network of video game wikis is the largest on the Internet, so there’s no better place to me to have visibility for a wiki in the world of games. Wikia even has official partnerships with gaming companies like Sony Online Entertainment, with the PlanetSide 2 Wiki being the official wiki community for the game. Our partnerships with gaming companies continue to grow.

      Another great feature we have for gamers is our Game Guides app. This gives players quick and easy access to information about all their favorite mobile and video games, with guides and walkthroughs that are created and maintained by communities just like this one. The link I gave you has links to where you can download the app in the App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android).

      If you’re concerned about technical support and the ability to get new extensions, our technical support crew can help you out if you send a message to Special:Contact. In terms of advertisements, we’re always looking to improve how advertisements are served, and that’s a goal of ours moving forward. Of course, logged in users see far fewer advertisements than unlogged visitors. If you have any specific questions or concerns about ads, you’re welcome to contact us at Special:Contact.

      Special:Contact extends to anything you want to contact us about. If there’s anything we can do to provide you with better support or anything else you may need here, just send us an email there or feel free to leave me a message on my wall here on the wiki. Thanks!

      (By the way, Patrigan, I'm curious, do you work for Curse?)

  • I changed the name of the PvP cardset project to Beta, to properly encompass the PvE Cards.

    Can you change the category on your page to the new one, namely: Category:Beta_Cardset_project_members
