Hello. Forge of Empires Wiki looks good and I've added it to the May spotlights.
You were right that no caption is necessary.
Your image is okay, however I do usually encourage people to choose a graphic without words, as the title of the wiki will be included next to the image itself, and it gets repetitive. Your call however - I can use the image you suggested.
So i was looking to see if there was any information on how a player gains points. What factors and how many points each gives. I think i read somewhere that the point system was roughly based on a players Age, GB lvls, and goods spent outside of the guild.
Is there somewhere that has a detailed list of the point (ranking) system! Im interested to know how to raise my points the most efficent way!
Thanks for your time and I personally appreciate ALL the volunteering you and each of the Admins do to support this wiki. If i have any questions or need to research anything, i come here first!
I'd like to know if you would reconsider this comment about GE buildings not belonging on the Special Buildings page.
At the moment all GE buildings are categorized as Special Building; looking at the buildings stats (similar to special buildings they mimic, like Oasis/Tribal Square, Watchfire/Ritual Flame, Wishing Well/Fountain of Youth) and the fact you can't find them in your building menu make me agree that they belong there.
You state you can get them on a regular basis, but that's only if you're willing to play GE and willing to advance to at least end of level 3 (in case of TF anyway). And only if you're lucky enough to win them from a chest or relic (which requires Temple of Relics).
On reconsideration I realise that my comment might be wrong, in some contexts. I believe that GE buildings can be classified as special buildings, especially since, as you've pointed out, they have been built using the stats and features of the regular special buildings.
I would recomend either listing them separately in the Special Buildings page, or you could list them together with some separate demarcation, like an asterisk or so.
Hey-O-Pafton! I’m Ursuul, representing the Vanguard team. I wanted to talk to you about converting to the Portable Infobox tool on this Wiki. The tool makes it easy to create and maintain Infoboxes that work nicely on all devices, while keeping the existing desktop design intact. As you can see below (or here for a working example), conversion would have little visual impact on the desktop Infoboxes:
There are many benefits to using this new Infobox tool, and if you approve of the above design then we would be happy to make the changes for you, since the Forge of Empires Wiki has been identified as a high priority for FANDOM. If you have any questions, or if this is the wrong place for this discussion, do let me know. We’d really like to start working on your Wiki, but we would appreciate your consent to proceed.
First of all, its an esteemed honour for our wiki to be identified as 'high-priority- by the FANDOM team.
I am aware of the benefits that the portable infoboxes possess. They're easier to edit and maintain. However, maybe we weren't proficient with the edit or possibly due to some other reason, but the infoboxes created by us didn't look too good :).
However, since the original and new one look almost the same then I don't see any reason for us to hold on from doing the conversions. The thing is, I'm immensely busy IRL and since the game keeps on releasing new content then I'm having to even cut short my vacations and holiday and be back on the wiki. So I would certainly require some assistance.
The Infoboxes likely came out less than ideally because there was no CSS to give the Infoboxes style / structure. Now that you have custom CSS, Infoboxes you create going forward will use that style, it’s just a matter of converting the existing ones until we’re all done.
Glad you’re on board & I totally understand being busy; I can do all ~100 or so Infoboxes myself (although you’re more than welcome to ask questions / make requests) & so you won’t have to waste any time on it. It’ll take me at least a week if not more to finish due to my own schedule, but in the end it’ll be more than worth it for your mobile viewers!
I expect to begin again tomorrow. You can see my progress at Special:Insights/nonportableinfoboxes, & you can test out the drafts for yourself during the process to make sure everything is satisfactory; thanks again for your enthusiasm!
It’s a combination of traffic and how the article content is structured; FANDOM has an algorithm that determines the priority with those factors in mind. But, you likely would not be high priority if you did not have a lot of traffic, which you do, & you have it because you have created good content which many folks want to read. Considering that, it’s important all those people be able to view the content you’ve worked hard on in the most optimal way.
Hey there, just letting you know that I have now finished making drafts for all Infoboxes on this Wiki. You can view them all at Special:Insights/nonportableinfoboxes (it may take a few hours for the last 30 or so to show up, but you can still find them by adding
to the url of a given Infobox template if you don’t want to wait).
You can take however much time you need to test them out to make sure you are satisfied that they will work as properly as the old Non-Portable Infoboxes, if you want to. I can make any tweaks you need should you find something that you want changed.
When you are satisfied, you can approve the drafts by clicking “Approve this draft” in the right rail of each draft Infobox page (or I can do this for you if you wish). Doing so will upgrade a given Infobox to the portable version, & will take effect on articles fairly immediately.
I just wanted to let you know that I've gone through the remainder of the infoboxes, and approved them for the live version.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank you on the behalf of the admin team and all our contributors for your immense hard work and efforts you've put into this wiki to convert the infoboxes. Thanks!
I saw that you've tried to contact me through the other Wikis.
Allthough I'm honestly flattered by your kind words, I decided to permantly leave this game for private reasons a year ago, and hence I have no interest in further contributing to this site. I do however see that this Wiki lives on, and that you and your fellow contributors have taken good care of my legacy and developed it further. It pleasens an old FoE'ers heart.
I wish you and your coworkers the best of luck with this Wiki and of course with the game itself.
Sorry for replying so late, I somehow missed this message.
It is extremely sad to hear that you are no longer on the game, and consequently on the wiki. The wiki here as lost an excellent and valuable gem.
One thing, since you've yourself said that you'll no longer come on the wiki, as well the game, I request you to please login once more to remove your bureuacrat rights, since people might be misled and turn to you for help, not realising you've left the wiki (and the game).
Thanks for the compliments, We'll continue to aspire to maintain your legacy.
I, Pafton, on behalf of the Forge of Empires Wiki Administrative Team, as well as all the editors and contributors on this wiki, wish you, Auctorius, a very bright and pleasant future and success in all future endeavours you may ever undertake.
Been having an issue with using FP on GB, but they don't register. The FB for the GB doesn't decrease. The FPs do fortunately register for the current Carnival Event. I've noticed this in multiple worlds. Just wanted to point out the issue.
Hi thanks for pointing it out. Unfortunately we are a fan-run site and exercise no power over InnoGames GmbH. It might be a bug or simply a glitch, but if it persists then I recommend that you contact the support team of your language.
Please make arrangements as soon as possible to correct info on the questline. Dates are wrong, quest info may be wrong ~~ states event ends March 12, but there are not enough quests to match that date and they are incomplete. Thank you.
The quests are correct, there is no doubt about that. I'm not the only one who adds the quests, one more person does it too. I don't know what calculations you used to arrive at the result that there are 'not enough quests'. But, whatever it is, it is incorrect.
The end date is correct too. It is indeed March 12th. I saw that on the game hints in beta. The only thing is that the start date is mentioned as one day earlier, and the reason is that it was not mentioned in the hints and was calculated on the basis of the event's duration in beta.
Hello, I would like to know if you can make a database dumps ? This is the purpose that it allows me to parse more easily (and quickly) data for a tool that I develop (and in the hope to find the equation of FP GB reward).
