Why delete when you can redirect?

Ok, done and done. Maybe I should get more sleep before I muck about with this stuff.

VoL (took some editing), Brittanian League (pretty much had to start from scratch) and Immortal Empire (mostly copied stuff, still feels unfinished) have been added to the Wiki.

Okay I don't think any page should start with an article. The VoL, for example, should just be VoL, and The VoL should redirect to VoL.

Yeah you just do redirects.

Okay, this page now has a template you can use for the right-side info panel for faction pages.

:mbd: to bring you that template.

That template is a great idea, Natalya.

Tek Level got added as a part of Natalya's template. We crossed streams a few times but I worked it out. I've added in the old TL chart for reference. Natalya's chart is below as an example of modern thinking (i.e. better/more relevant).

Made a SHDT page, plus added Natalya's side bar to the Luchardsko page.

Thanks to Quantumsurfer (?) for redirecting from "The Empire of Luchardsko" to "Empire of Luchardsko".

EDIT: Someone (Arkbrik, Silver, piltogg, maybe) should make a Pwny page.

No problem. I went ahead and moved all the "The Empire of..." pages to pages titled with their actual name. Someone mentioned it being a bloody mess for categorization and I agreed.

Also, while I've been sat here on my ass, bored out of my skull and waiting for my wife to come home from the hospital, I've been running overwatch. This has resulted in me adding stuff to category pages like the planets Dios and Hus. I see a problem arising though. As we become more tightly organized, the need to keep a record increases. I've been sort of doing that occasionally by modifying Important Stuff to Do but I forget about it often. Anyway, the reason is: new pages are being made to get the categorization and templating out of the way for later. Which makes the redlink go away, of course, and that can leave it sometimes difficult to remember which pages still need actual content. Its not a big thing, though. I'm sure I'll run across something I forgot about later and fill it in then.

Side note: Fiends and Pwnies have been added to the Bestiary. They're briefly described like the rest but still redlinked and ready to go for one of you guys.

Done. Could use some expansion by an enterprising Brwnie though.

EDIT: Maybe I put it in the wrong place. I don't understand this new fangled wiki cleverness

DOUBLE EDIT: Wait, there is one page called Category:Bestiary and another called just Bestiary? And they have nothing to do with each other? (Except for linking to pretty much the same things)

Depends. I suppose they fit Bestiary as well as they do Factions.

Yes, one is the polished page browsers see which may or may not have extra descriptions on it and the other is a category page that just lists all the subjects that link there. I suppose, aside from the extra text, that the biggest reason for the polished page is so new users can create new pages from there instead of the category page, which would leave redundancies on the same page because category pages automatically index everything we tag. To be honest, though, I haven't given it much thought beyond that.

Bragallot wrote:Depends. I suppose they fit Bestiary as well as they do Factions.


Yeah, no big deal. A page can belong to more than one category. I'll just rename the redlink. or call it by the genus, more likely. Is it "Ekvine Genus?"

By the way, I added some more to structures but I don't know how to describe, in basic terms, what a "Death Wall" is. Help?

Huge wall with heavy defenses on it that makes lesser minifigs shit their pants when they're forced to march towards it. Has to have seen at least approximately a fuckton of minifigs die before it deserves the title death wall (see: Natalya's death wall, the Walls of Fico, Starkeep, Lion's Maw or the Walls of Kerrat).

Alternately, a death wall can be a wall so useless it actually gets those defending it killed more quickly and crumbles apart at the slightest assault, but is still appreciated because of the amount of carnage it allows, or even causes. (see the Bavarian Gustav Line or the Brittanian Wall of Fort Maren.)

Death walls may not suffer from Big Gray Wall syndrome.
