Drivers and their Blades can change from the frontlines of combat to the back in order to unleash powerful context-sensitive abilities. Together, you’ll fight for the survival of mankind, under threat by Malos, who wields the legendary sword, The Monado.
So if it's okay with you could Malos's sword be officially put on the monado tab and in the monado page
I replied on my wallpost but the when I did, my reply did disappeared. Weird, Ill reply here.
So of course, Im glad we got it fixed, Im sure itll help new people learn more, and hopefully encourage them to contribute to the wiki.
I have a quick question, not sure who to ask so I will ask you. Should I make two pages, one on the topic of Tanking, and one on topic of damaging in XC1? I plan on expanding the healing page way more, and I think a comprehensive pages explaining the mechanics could be helpful.
Sorry you lost your post. The messaging system is weirdly unstable sometimes. It's especially bad about losing messages if I start a message, get distracted, and come back to finish it a while later.
Again, thanks for your help with the tutorial situation. This isn't the first time Wikia / Fandom has changed the beginner tutorial and broken our links. Since experienced editors don't have a need for those pages, we only find out about problems with them when a new editors lets us know.
As for those pages.... those topics run the risk of crossing into the area of strategy and gameplay tips. We're an encyclopedia, not a strategy guide. We've removed pages in the past which crossed too far into strategy guide territory. In fact, I deleted one just yesterday called "Things to know before playing this game".
If you can keep those pages to just facts, not advice or opinion, they might be okay. Or they might not, because even if you do that, other editors may take them in the direction of a strategy guide.
Often when someone wants to create a page that may be problematic, we encourage them to create it as a subpage of their user profile. So you could create User:Lastlaughlol/Tanking and User:Lastlaughlol/Damaging (XC1). Then you can start a discussion on the Wiki Board about whether the pages should be moved to the main namespace. Even if the community decides against having those pages in the main namespace, you can keep them in your userspace and link to them from your profile.
Other options for posting gameplay tips include blog posts, the Xenoblade Games board, and (for shorter tips) comments on pages.
It happens, its a good habit to copy and paste long texts before sending.
I understand your point completely.
We would not want opinionated content on the pages, but only objective facts that can be corroborated.
That would be my direction for any such pages, focusing on most likely, which characters fit in the roles, what arts fall under their respective categories, facts about aggro and how it functions in XC1 for example. That way if a player wanted to better understand the mechanic because he is having trouble with holding aggro for example, he could look it up on the wiki, see the functions of the system, see what Arts are available that help with execution, and then make their decision on how they will use the new learned knowledge. I will follow your advice, and first make them on my own profile, then ask if they are appropriate and up to par.
For XC2 instead of creating a lot of pages before the game was released, we created List of Enemies in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. We did that because with XCX we did create a bunch of enemy pages before the game was released, and it caused problems.
So my opinion is that for TTGC, creating a list page like we did for XC2 would probably be the best practice.
However, I was busy with schoolwork and not around much during most of the XC2 prerelease period, so there could be problems with doing it this way that I don't know about. Which means it could be worth starting a discussion on the Wiki Board.
I'm reasonably sure that was a copy-paste error. Likely I meant to only copy Zooz Aspid from the Canyon of Husks line, but snagged the Tetora Lysaat too. Sorry about that.
I was testing at the time, but I was focused on the collectibles missing from User:UnnamedBonus/XC2/Salvage Points. Portal of the Hero's collectibles list was already complete at that time, so I don't think I did any Salvaging there during the timeframe that I was building the mainspace Salvage Point pages.
I can't account for those. I'd say assume they're an error and remove them.
I created the Salvage Point pages in a text editor, and I didn't think to use Git, so I don't have a history of my changes. My working file and the automatic backup of it are both dated May 7th, which is two days after the Gormott Salvage Point page was created, so they don't offer any clues.
One weird thing is the line for Seigle Fell starts with Yardl Krabble then lists the others in alphabetical order. That makes me wonder if it's a mis-paste, but if it is I missed by 3 lines. Though I can't think why I would've been moving that group of enemies.
It bothers me that I've made so many mistakes. I apologize for the extra work they've caused you.
"Sorry about last night. Project Wikia's decline is something of a sore subject for me. Your attempt to unblock me for further discussion doesn't seem to have gone through, but thank you for the attempt. Once the block runs its course we can pick up discussions again. Thank you for your time."
Hey, Unnamedbonus! I hate to sound like a spammer, but because of my laziness, I'll simply copy and paste what I wrote to Ceiling Master here.
Please check out Xenoboards-- a discussion board for fans of the Xeno series. I recently joined the site a few days ago as "Momo". So far, the members have been pretty friendly and the general atmosphere is very laidback. Just wanted to share this site with you because you seem like a cool person who happens to like the Xenoblade games.
Hello UnnamedBonus. My name is EmberstoAshes; Embers for short. I joined this community for more than to just help grow this fantastic game’s guide. My main intention is much deeper and more time consuming. After deep internet research I have concluded that there are only 2 complete Xenoblade Chronicles Guides available for the public. I was originally hoping to find a physical copy of a complete guide to help me have an easier time tackle quests, but sadly there isn’t. So I’ve made it a project unto myself to create a physical Xenoblade Chronicles guide from scratch along with utilizing all the info found on Xenoblade Wiki, and then make the file available to everyone who wants to print it out and have a physical guide to Xenoblade Chronicles for themselves for free. I tell you this because you are one of the 7 most active editors on Xenoblade Wiki and I would like to know if you would want to have a hand in this project.
Sounds like an admirable goal. Unfortunately I don't have the time to help out at the moment. (I haven't even had time to do any editing here for the past several months.)
I do wish you success. Once you get past the planning / recruitment stage and start having some material to show, I'd be more than happy to add a link to your project in the News section of the front page.
I do understand the postition you are in and I am glad that you respomded back. Luckily for me/you though I have acually complete 147 pages on my own. Here is a link if you ever find the time to want to participate. I am also awaiting a response from the 6 other main editors on xenoblade wiki.
