I mentioned that only admins can do that.
I suggest you create your thread and then notify me when you want it protected (blocked).
Note that you too won't be able to edit or reply to your own thread after that.

I didn't do it. All wikis have switched over to this new format. I agree its an eyesore and I am contemplating on what can be done. If you do want to provide your feedback regarding this, contact the wikia support staff.

Question: I'm on the cusp of a new age. I unlock 2 techs to advance. I have completed #48 on GE. But I haven't popped the chest #48. The option to open Level 4 difficulty is there (I'm only Admin w/Rights)....
If I advance before GE ends for the week, then, go back and pop chest #48,.....
Do I have 2 5% chances to win the Premium Production/Cultural Buildings of the new age, or do I win the ones from the age I left, as thats the age I was when I started the GE for the week.
Thanks Pafton. Im at such a juncture now. Im going to "investigate" the results and post the answer here, before GE finishes. The same situation can arise again; repeatedly even. As a player advances thru each age. Therefore, I may have 7 or 8 chances in front of me, where I'll be in the same situation.
Its a matter of being aware of the "timing".
Each age in front of me may yeild a Premium building of the Age on the other side of the jump. Im my case, I have two 5% chances to win a Premium from InA, as opposed to CA. The difference between the choices is clearly, significant.
I'll keep this in mind, and get back to you.
Perhaps, if you have a chance do any of the other moderators know with ANY certainity?
Got it. 17 hours to decide risking it. The costs will go up I learned here on the Guild page of the Wiki for me to open Level 4. I may not have the goods, to open it and to get any IaN goods on chests #49-#54 or #60. I may pop it and stall the jump. Do you think Im losing out in anynway? Something I'm missing?
I can leave everything as is, not advance, and be right back here next week with the same opportunity. Unless Quest line #8 for Research a Tech comes first, in next weeks Doyle quest.....Im inclined to pop and sit. Ive tired of winning crappy Faces. 5 useless LMA ones in inventory and the same for Gates.
Thats very interesting. I have the same dilemma, again, this week as I stalled the jump. I just finished #48, but as last week, did not pop the chest yet. Pafton was 100% whenbhe said this weeks prizes are better. I need to think, as jumping may ruin all my Lords Manor quest plans. Im all set with the scouting and province. I may need to jump during the quest to produce rubber for probince control. Pafton felt as you posted, as you can see above.
I see a list of "Requirements for Research". Is this the cost for the research tree alone or does this include the cost of negotiating for the continent map? Where can i get the totals for negotiating the Future Continent provinces?
Hey Pafton. I'm Brandon from Fandom's Community team, and I'm reaching out to you since you're the most recently active admin on the wiki. By now you may have seen our announcement about Wiki Modernization and how we're using featured wiki videos to reduce the number of ads on the site and improve the performance of all Fandom wikis.
We're planning on running a featured video on 2017 Spring Event. We've worked with InnoGames to run this video on the page as part of promotion for the 2017 Spring Event. We plan to get it up by the end of tomorrow, at the latest.
Let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!
I've read a few if your blogs. However, honestly the article seemed a bit vague. Anyway, from what I can deduce you plan to put a video on the page which will contain ads, but then ads won"t be present around the page. Am I correct in my assumption?
Pafton (talk) 11:08, April 7, 2017 (UTC)
Ads won't be removed from the page yet, but we're getting to the point where there were be fewer ads on every wiki page very soon. Putting featured videos on just some wiki pages will allow us to do that within the next couple of months. So videos on pages like 2017 Spring Event help us get there, which is why we're planning on adding the video to the page today.
We're about to start testing a reduced amount of ads and will have more information on that on Community Central in about a week and a half.
Just a note of caution, there are a lot of tables on that page, please be careful while editing as even the loss of a single table can create a ruckus. I know you all are experienced contributors but a little piece of advice doesn't hurt, right? ;)
Wow... that's a real achievment for me and my community.
Umm... I have a small request, You see, on all our event pages the pagecover is the foremost thing and all other content follows behind it. This video kinda breaks the sequence. I was wondering if to would be possible to shift the video to the bottom of the page (just before the events table)?
Sincerely Pafton (talk) 06:28, April 8, 2017 (UTC)
Hey Pafton. Sorry it took me so long to reply to you. I missed this message somehow!
There isn't a way to move the featured video placement, I'm afraid. What we could potentially do is use the image that's in the page cover as the image on the video, and rename the video to include the same info. The video could be named "Force of Empires 2017 Spring Event: March 28, 2017 - April 17, 2017".
That way, it's acting like the page cover does. How does that sound?
Yeah, we built the product to appear in that one place. When we did testing for featured videos, we tested 5 different placements. Some were lower on the page, some were in the right rail, and some were bigger or smaller than the current placement. This was the one that performed best so that's what we ended up building. Having it up at the top is what will enable us to get as much value from them as possible in order to remove some of the ad clutter across each wiki page.
I will get the preview image and the title updated.
On re-reading your post in the morning I saw that it wasn't mentioned. Maybe a typo or two resulted in me misunderstanding the statement (I was sleepy too, so might not have read the post in full detail).
