TreeEdit

Basically, the way I do categories on the wikis I admin at is a unitary tree or binary tree (one for content and the other for administrative stuff, in the case of a binary tree system). You start with the series (i.e. Total War in this case) as a root category. This is applied a category for games (so Total War > Total War: Rome II for instance), then subcategories of the games (Total War > Total War: Rome II > Units of Total War: Rome II). All of these categories wouldn't go on pages but would rather be used simply for organizing content into a clean tree. After them, you get the relevant subcategories The top-level/leaf categories would be something like Ranged Infantry of Total War: Rome II.

To illustrate my example:

  • Total War
    • Games of Total War
      • Total War: Rome II
        • Infantry Units of Total War: Rome II
          • Ranged Infantry Units of Total War: Rome II
        • Ranged Units of Total War: Rome II
          • Ranged Infantry Units of Total War: Rome II
          • Ranged Cavalry Units of total War: Rome II

There is some crossover, but it is minimal; the system keeps the categories streamlined and organized.

For a functional example of this sort of thing already in place, see this (ignoring the idiot who still put it on a page) and explore the category tree a bit. This should give you an idea of what I mean -- if you start at the root, you can follow the tree up a cleanly-organized path to get to the content you want. There can also be multiple paths leading to the same content, as well, but it is logically organized such that it doesn't appear erratic in its application.

How would you approach it?

Also, forgive me if I misspeak or make a mistake, it's very late and I'm tired. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 08:05, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

As an aside, I have a program I can run that will make these changes (relatively) easily, it's just a matter of having down a finalized format to work from. And we will have to delete whatever categories end up becoming empty as a result of an overhaul like this. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 08:11, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Edit

R2's units are generally (but not always) grouped by culture. I would prefer consistency (every TW game except ETW and NTW has similarly diverse rosters), but we could group them as European units, Indian units, etc along those lines. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 17:45, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

Specifically I was thinking Western European, Eastern European, Middle Eastern, Indian, American (which if I remember correctly is identical to Western European, actually), and Native American units. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 08:56, September 19, 2015 (UTC)

Well having them in one category doesn't preclude them from being in others, and if it is used by one nation then it by default falls under the umbrella category. There is overlap in the other games, as well; the only other real alternative is to have nation-specific categories which would run up into the dozens for single units. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 19:41, September 21, 2015 (UTC)

Sure, but that would mean that the user would have to sift through the broader unit categories to find what they're looking for. I'm also not talking about geographic terms as much as cultural groupings. The (few) unique one-off units wold be fine imo. It would still be very readable. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 04:32, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

Alright, I'll start on it later tonight. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 19:31, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

No. It's a tree. Units is the parent category of categorical unit types without appearing on pages as a standalone category. It's basically exactly the same setup as what I did with R2TW's unit categories. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 01:48, September 23, 2015 (UTC)

CategoriesEdit

All right, whenever you have the time, take a look at this. -- Fidei Defensor (talkcontribs) 11:16, October 6, 2015 (UTC)

Total War: Arena updatesEdit

Sorry for starting with stubs. I want to get the framework up for all units starting with Roman Empire melee swords then spears then ranged and so on... I was intending to use the categories "Total War: Arena Roman Empire units," and one for light, medium and heavy variants of infantry/Calvary. There is no framework of pages or categories for me to build upon so please let me know how you want me to impli!ent this. I intend to have a working unit stats table template available tomorrow

RoboYote (talk) 05:23, November 22, 2015 (UTC)

I did notice the excess of tags and differences in capitalization. I did not make any cavalry pages, so there shouldn't be any misspelled categories since I only wrote it here in this message the one time. To be honest, I picked the Hoplites' page from the Rome II section to use as my standardization model since no unit pages for Arena exist yet. I tried to emmulate the capitalization and unit separation I saw there. I didn't know categories were not-removable, that's pretty shitty and seems like an open door for trolling; I hope they fix that. I'll leave categorization for you to take care of, though I'm not sure if you play this Total War game yet. If you'd like, I'll upload a screenshot of each faction's tech-tree with the legend explaining unit type and armor level for each army. Till then, expect some new Infoboxes this afternoon. Let me know if I need to add, change, or remove anything once I get Militia Swords and Italian Swordsmen filled in.

RoboYote (talk) 19:57, November 22, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for looking over my stuff and bringing it into line. You've got the eyes of a hawk, sir. If I was to properly fill in the body of these unit pages to qualify as non-stub, do you have a reference unit from any other TW game I should aim to most closely emulate?

Collapsing navboxesEdit

Here is one. The collapse link adopts the style of the header which makes things ugly and imbalanced. I'll have to fix that before implementing.

BackgroundEdit

On an unrelated note, is there a way to change the background picture of this wiki? Shogun II was a while ago now. Brainwasher5 (talk) 05:47, December 7, 2015 (UTC)

Admin's dashboard then Theme Designer.

TemplatesEdit

http://totalwar.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Insights/templateswithouttype

Some of those are very old. I'll remove the ones I never completed and clean those which are still in use.

CategoriesEdit

I don't intend to delete the "X: Total War units" categories. They're very useful. Sub-categories by region, culture and type are intended to complement the generic "units" category.

Categories Edit

Can you go through Special:UncategorizedCategories and remove what you won't be using? -- Fidei Defensor (talkcontribs) 05:21, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

I'll demonstrate what I mean as it's easier that way. Yuri has the general idea with what's in place on the battlefield wikia. -- Fidei Defensor (talkcontribs) 00:53, December 14, 2015 (UTC)

Napoleonic Generals Edit

If I'm correct, the generals do have diiferent stats (or at least different abilities in what they can do).

And besides, the game makes it a bit of a focus point of the various famous tacticians from the time period. So I think we should create a page for each general, like a page for Napoleon, a page for Wellington, for von Blucher, etc.

TheNapoleonicEditor (talk) 01:37, December 15, 2015 (UTC)

Hi Brainwasher, what can I do on this wiki?

And also, I am not sure this is the way to leave messages...sorry really new to all this.

Xiao88455 (talk) 08:21, January 28, 2016 (UTC)Xiao88455

You can just call me Roger. Xiao88455 is just a in-game name that I have used throughout my life.

I have NTW. Although I do not play it often, I can help completing the wiki for that. As for the newer games, I do not play on buying them but I am willing to help out in anyway I can.

Thanks for the encouragement!

Xiao88455 (talk) 18:00, January 30, 2016 (UTC)

Hey Brainwasher, I posted to the other wiki but that got closed - I wanted to get in touch about your project and what may happen next as I happen to agree with most of your points for the cb wikia and I won't be contributing there either after seeing too many ideas get dismissed too quickly. You can find an email at my hg profile if and when you have the time and interest, take care.

InfoboxesEdit

I think I can do something with it. It shouldn't be too hard. I'll include four "comparison" slots.

The below is mostly for interest's sake.

I took a look at that wiki's infobox setup. As it turns out, they dump straight CSS formatting onto the page in order to make it look the way it does.

That's great for getting it to look precisely how they want on a page-by-page basis but the whole point of infoboxes is to streamline the usage of the templates such that any user, even without knowledge of CSS, can use them. Basically, we transclude the CSS from the actual template page without having it actually appear on the page. This makes it better for us as editors to make use of the template, with consistency across numerous pages. No matter where the template is used, the usage and formatting is exactly the same.

This is a double edged sword. Rigidity is nice for conformity, but bad for having precisely-defined custom templates for every page. It also keeps the "actual" size of pages down.

In theory, I could include an infinite number of IF statements in the template, but it's not really practical. Especially given how MediaWiki uses an awful system for nesting CSS boxes. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 05:06, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

Interwiki-PartnershipEdit

Hello,

I am the admin of the German Total War Wiki, which I have adopted and I had the idea of a partnership between our two Wikis. It would not mean that we make all together, but I think regular communication could be nice so we can maybe help each other a bit. I write to you, because your are the most active admin here and I hope for a fast answer. --Keks95 12px-Keks.png 12:42, June 29, 2016 (UTC)

RTW Stuff Edit

Hey, I'm a RTW player, and I think I can add new content to the wiki on RTW-related subjects. Is there a certain layout or format I have to follow?

Perfecto Incognito 14:19, July 2, 2016 (UTC)

GalleriesEdit

To make galleries side by side, wikia has a gallery tag for that specifically. You place the files between two gallery tags, like so.

gallery
file:file1.jpg|commentary
file:file2.jpg|commentary
/gallery

With the word "gallery" and "/gallery" in <> brackets.

As for the infobox I've been having trouble with it. I feel like it might be easiest to use JavaScript (which requires me being able to edit This page, which seems to be disabled) but even then I've been having issues getting it to appear consistently. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 02:49, July 5, 2016 (UTC)

I actually am not sure. Wikia fairly recently (like within the last year, maybe) started locking down on custom JS, and I wouldn't be surprised that this wiki (with relatively slow activity and no preexisting custom JS) might have gotten swept up in that. Probably will need to message a staff member to get it activated. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 05:47, July 5, 2016 (UTC)

Wiki theme changed Edit

Yeah, I forgot that purple was for something you already clicked so I made the links blue now, and changed the red buttons to more darker red as the previous one was too bright. I am happy now with the results. Nanomat (talk) 18:45, July 12, 2016 (UTC)

Social media accountEdit

Many of my friend's wikis have a social media account. So this could be a possibility for you too, to find more editors and readers or at least hold your actual readers and editors, because you don't have less pages.--Keks95 12px-Keks.png 20:22, July 31, 2016 (UTC)


Hey, how do i get text under table, please help. Article http://totalwar.wikia.com/wiki/Assassin_%28Medieval_II:_Total_War%29 Polims (talk) 19:05, August 2, 2016 (UTC)

Infobox messed up Edit

Ummm do you have any idea what is wrong with the TWW template? Check the Demigryph Knights (Halberds) page. It was working fine before. I actually copied it from your ETW template, hmm. Ohh it appears something is actually wrong with all the infoboxes, even your ETW one. Nanomat (talk) 17:55, August 3, 2016 (UTC)

Unit thumbnails Edit

Do you have any idea why the unit portraits of the TWW units don't show up as thumbnails in the category section or in the read more section? I am using the Honga png portraits same as you, but youe ETW articles have correct thumb previews or maybe they need some time to show up? Nanomat (talk) 18:06, August 5, 2016 (UTC)

NTW Pics Edit

Sorry for not getting to your message on time, but yes I can definitely help you out with pictures. 


Also I think you need a new laptop.


As for being centered, I don't know what's going on. I'm getting them from the other Total War wiki.


TheNapoleonicEditor (talk) 06:35, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

PicturesEdit

Hi, I just wanted to ask where you get your pictures or if you just use screenshots? --Keks95 12px-Keks.png 17:05, August 28, 2016 (UTC)

Multiplayer Edit

Because this is a work laptop for college, I don't know if I have the proper graphics cards or other capabilities to run NTW. I'll look into it more.

But you are definitely welcome to add me on Steam:

Look up either jimmyyang3000 or mryang201.

TheNapoleonicEditor (talk) 15:12, September 1, 2016 (UTC)

Yup. My family's from the mainland, although I can't claim too much attachment to the mainland.

RE: Milestone Edit

Well thats cool! The wiki is brought up to some shape after its dark ages :D I found Shogun 2 lately and I am absolutely loving Fall of the Samurai, it is total beast! It is vastly immensive and battles are dynamic and brutal I absolutely recommend it! Nanomat (talk) 22:01, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Created a TWS2 page Edit

It is okay I think. So the Shogun 2 color will be orange? Will there be different infobox for FoTS? Nanomat (talk) 18:02, April 8, 2017 (UTC)

For Shogun 2 I am not sure, maybe some kind of gold or bright red, well let's just keep it as it is for now. The Warpath Campaign and Peninsular Campaign using the vanilla color scheme makes sense since both of these campaigns are actually set in the same setting and timeframe as the vanilla games while FoTS is set in completely different era and setting, all of the units and most of the buildings are different and it feels like a different game. If we decide that FoTS needs its own color scheme I would suggest some shade of very dark/blackish blue similar to the color of the actual uniforms worn during the Boshin War, also the FoTS cover and the game as a whole gives me some kind of dark blueish feel :D Nanomat (talk) 17:40, April 9, 2017 (UTC)

Rome 2? Sure, why not. Edit

Hey there. I was quite pleasantly surprised to see your message, and would certainly be interested in resuming work on the Rome 2 pages for the wiki. It'll take me a while to do the dusting and figure out where I stored all the Rome 2 knowledge in my brain, but I'm willing to do so when I have the time.

...I was also kind of shocked to see the "Bureaucrat" and "Admin" tags on my profile. Do you happen to know if that was recent, or if it was a result of the conversation I had with Byzantine Lantikon back in 2015? Flameroran77 (talk) 10:28, April 24, 2017 (UTC)

Ah, crap. That means this wiki had an admin that didn't even know they were an admin for two whole years. Well, I have time to make up for it now. XD

Anyway in the next few days I'll definitely start working on Rome 2 articles. Should probably wrap up the few Roman troops I didn't finish and start work on the Celts/Gauls again. I'll probably start on the Greeks in a few weeks, then figure out which culture group to do next.

Flameroran77 (talk) 10:28, April 24, 2017 (UTC)

Unit template question. Edit

Wanted to make a quick change to the RTW2 unit infobox template, and change meleedmg/melee damage to weapdmg/weapon damage since that's what the actual in-game stat is referred to as, but I don't know if that's going to mess up all of the other infoboxes already in use on the wiki. Any idea what changing that will do?

Flameroran77 (talk) 16:41, April 24, 2017 (UTC)

Infobox pictures. Edit

I actually agree with you on this subject; using the unit cards would be more uniform, and easier to identify. And now that I hear you say this as well, I'm considerably less confident in the point I make below.

The reason that I used screenshots for the Rome 2 icons is because Rome 2's unit cards are unique in the sense that they are all extremely simplistic drawings, like [[1]] this. While the unit cards in every other Total War game that I can think of are much more detailed, almost like photographs or portraits, like the image on the Old Guard page you mentioned. My reasoning was that using screenshots would make it easier to identify the unit on the battlefield, where you really zoom in and look at your units. But again, I was already a little unsure when I started doing that, and hearing you voice your opinion has me really on the fence now.

That said, I think the problem is that both of the options kind of suck. I guess we'll just have to figure out which one sucks less. *shrugs*

Flameroran77 (talk) 15:45, April 27, 2017 (UTC)

Alright, I'm gonna open a topic in the general discussion board, since I'm getting messages from multiple people now. Flameroran77 (talk) 20:31, April 29, 2017 (UTC)

City building games Edit

I was just browsing the city building series wiki and stumbled upon your work, so you are active there? I used to play a lot all of these games when I was younger and still have some rounds with Caesar 3. It looks like the wiki has a lot of potential, I learned from there that there are housing levels that I never attained back then lol. Nanomat (talk) 19:52, May 6, 2017 (UTC)

Lol, once again you got odd luck with admins. Which city building games have you played? Nanomat (talk) 18:47, May 7, 2017 (UTC)

RE: NTW Portrait art Edit

On the artist's blog. I was curious and googled "napoleon total war portraits". It looks like there were portraits with hussars and various other characters plus specific portraits for Russian generals but unfortunately it looks like they were not implemented in the final game. Nanomat (talk) 15:44, May 13, 2017 (UTC)

*Guerrilla* Warriors Edit

-*facepalm* Derp, you're right. Two r's. Fixed it. Thanks for writing the description, btw. I keep meaning to write those for them but just get on a roll with filling out infoboxes. Next thing you know I'm out of time and have to stop. Flameroran77 (talk) 04:42, May 27, 2017 (UTC)

Well, that makes two of us that get our stuff from honga XD Flameroran77 (talk) 09:18, May 27, 2017 (UTC)

Religious Buildings Edit

I'm in a bit of a pickle.

For the Christian religious buildings (Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodoxy), do the images look the same for each variant? You'll find them on Total War Wiki.

For the Ashrams, should I just make one Ashram page? The descriptions for each Ashram (Small, Large, and Great) are the same.

For the Madrassas, should I just make one Madrassa page? The descriptions for the Small and Large Madrassas are the same, but there is a different description for the Yüsekokul.

What is your verdict?

TheNapoleonicEditor (talk) 04:53, July 8, 2017 (UTC)

Alright, I will do what you have suggested. Thank you.

TheNapoleonicEditor (talk) 08:07, July 8, 2017 (UTC)

Small Ashram and Small Madrassa Edit

Can you delete the Small Ashram page? I fudged things up and screwed it up.

Thank you.


TheNapoleonicEditor (talk) 04:59, August 16, 2017 (UTC)


Thank you!

TheNapoleonicEditor (talk) 05:17, August 16, 2017 (UTC)

Historical Friendships/Grievances Edit

I think these should be in the main page of the factions, maybe in a dedicated section with other diplomatic details. Also can you explain what's the exact meaning of "if the faction emerges" considering the Ottomans and Austrians are present from the start of the game? Nanomat (talk) 16:58, August 24, 2017 (UTC)

That makes sense. With all of this information we definitely got to have diplomacy section on faction articles. Nanomat (talk) 17:59, August 24, 2017 (UTC)

MP Testing Edit

I have the Peninsular Campaign. There are two other issues. I will download it onto my laptop to see what issues I may have running it, and I will try to set up a multiplayer campaign with you to see if the school's firewall will get in the way. Generally I don't think this will be an issue, but I'll let you know. Certainly, shoot me a steam message or Facebook message whenever you want to test out a multiplayer campaign.

TheNapoleonicEditor (talk) 03:47, September 6, 2017 (UTC)

Editing FilesEdit

Hi, I have made a typo in a filename (File:Contruction_positive.png), and I noticed that I cannot change the filename. Could you fix this (should be Construction_positive.png), or could you give me the rights required so I can edit it myself? Thanks, SDzv (talk) 16:16, October 14, 2017 (UTC)

Interwiki Edit

Hi. Can you add interwiki to Polish Total War Wiki on your main page?  Arek214 (T) 15:50, December 4, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for help.  Arek214 (T) 17:57, December 4, 2017 (UTC)

ETW National ObservatoriesEdit

Should I add some information regarding the republican version of the Royal observatories on the Royal Observatory page, or, instead, create a different page for them? ArsenVitiuk (talk)

National Observatories and other Republican buildingsEdit

I have to disagree. The National Observatory has a somewhat different building description, in addition to a different name. I believe that is enough to deserve a separate page.

By the way, Republics and Absolute Monarchies have different administrative buildings: State House (Absolute Monarchy counterpart: Governor's Residence), State Capitol (AM: Governor's Mansion), House of Representatives (AM: Royal Palace) and Presidential Palace (AM: Imperial Palace). In addition, Constitutional Monarchies have Parliament Chamber and Great Parliament replacing Royal Palace and Imperial Palace respectively. All buildings have different descriptions, in addition to different names.

So, I stand by my opinion that these Republic and Constitutional Monarchy couterparts deserve their own pages. And, if you agree, I will get down to creating them right away.

Of course, this also comes with additional difficulties, but we can discuss that separately. ArsenVitiuk (talk)

The way I see itEdit

If there are separate pages for different Administrative buildings in place (check this out yourself if you do not believe me), then why does the National Observatory and National Academy do not deserve their separate pages?

If it were up to me, I'd say there is no need for so many pages. I'd make all links and redirections end up in one "building-level-defined" article, where every page would have three different descriptions of the same level of buildings depending on the government type.

I can try something like that with one page just to show you jow it would work - we can always revert the edits back. ArsenVitiuk (talk) 05:35, December 12, 2017 (UTC)

Converging pagesEdit

Concerning what we discussed before:

Here is what I think the pages should look like. If this concept is satisfactory, I will do the same to all the other pages. In the meantime, do whatever corrections to this page you deem necessary. ArsenVitiuk (talk) 12:44, December 13, 2017 (UTC)

How about use Absolute Monarchy, Constitutional Monarchy, Republic tabs and then have the three culture variants in tabs below? Nanomat (talk) 13:19, December 13, 2017 (UTC)

Finally, converged them into one page. Please, take a look into the edit history and tell me which format would fit better for the headings. Revert to the previous design if you feel it suits better. ArsenVitiuk (talk) 16:11, December 13, 2017 (UTC)

I found out how to make a tabber within a tabber, BUT the generic titles like "Level 2 Administrative Buildings" bother me. Also the three groups of buildings actually have somewhat different characteristics like different tax or different units being recruitable. So I suggest another system, to have articles like "Mansion" with the three cultural tabs and "Council" and "State House" and so forth. This way we will avoid the too generic article titles and the clutter of having tabs within tabs. If there is problem with the naming of the articles I suggest the following naming convention, the article will be named after the two cultural variation names, for example the lvl 3 constitutional building could be named simply "Council" as the ME and I variants use this name. Many other buildings have the same name for the three cultures like "Palace" so there would be no issue at all. Nanomat (talk) 23:05, December 15, 2017 (UTC)
I think that having names like "Level 2 Administrative Buildings" is fine if we redirect all the other names there. It'd be even better if we could type in something like, "Parliament building" or whatever it's called and have the redirect precisely go to the specific tab. I'm concerned that a name such as "Council" could be confusing to users since a) there are probably other total war games with buildings named "council" and b) it might confuse readers since to my knowledge there's no ETW building that's directly named "coucil". That's my two cents though. What do you think, Arsen? Brainwasher5 (talk) 02:06, December 16, 2017 (UTC)

ROTS infobox Edit

Looks fine as it is. Nanomat (talk) 18:24, January 15, 2018 (UTC)

Barbarian Invasion units Edit

Hi again,

Right now I am playing BI and decided to have a look at BI units here. It turns out there are many doubling unit pages (like Comitatenses (Western Roman Empire) and Comitatenses (Eastern Roman Empire)), it's like the situation we had with the line infantry articles for each ETW faction. I propose to merge these articles into single one and just mention the faction variations like u did with the ETW articles, considering that BI units are actually the same for every faction there would be no need for mentioning any variations just show the different faction colors. Thoughts? Nanomat (talk) 15:15, July 17, 2018 (UTC)

About the unknown glitch with categories Edit

Hey Brainwasher. Sorry for late reply. It seems the the notification system of wikia has some problem. I've encountered this glitch that no matter how I try to add category for the page Sen Ren - either through new editor (source editing/visual editing), or old editor (source editing/visual editing) or add category directly onto the page - the categories doesn't work. I think the glitch can only happens if you delete "[[categ0ry:xxxxx]]" (I use 0 to replace the o here for the case of demonstration) in the new editor, which I probably did that accidentally. I haven't find the solution for this problem after searching any other similar case on fandom forum. The only possible solution I can think of right now is to add Nowiki tag before and after "[[categ0ry:xxxxx]]", but I have yet to try it. 

I cc the reply here from my talk page because I think the notification system is having problem.

---Lonedwikia (talk) 16:56, September 29, 2018 (UTC)

  • Never mind my dude. I add the category After I deleted every single thing on the page completely. And it worked. It took me more than ten tries to find out the solution. Such a wired glitch. -Lonedwikia (talk) 17:02, September 29, 2018 (UTC)

Apologies, I will re-edit the pages and try to be more specific, however when I say The Roman Empire I mean to say that The Roman Empire can be established in Rome: Total War I, II and Total War: Attila. I am also trying to specify to the people that play it is that The Roman Empire can be established and can fall in Rome: Total War I.

New infobox for 3K characters is online&revert back Cao Cao/Liu Bei's page name Edit

I created a new infobox for 3K characters based on information collected from latest spy reveal. If you have any suggestion, please tell me. I still considering the order of each label/source.

{{infobox/Character/3K}}
There's an example on Cao Cao

I'm also thinking if you could revert back Cao Cao/Liu Bei's page name. Since 3K is very character-centric, a clean page name will be easier to search and navigate for readers/new players. 

Also, after watching the new spy video, I feel like XXX (faction) page won't be necessary anymore, since basically every NPC character can create their own faction in the game. Too many XXX (character) and XXX (faction) will be redundant. What do you think?

-Lonedwikia (talk) 13:54, January 18, 2019 (UTC)

I'm a bit confused with 3K factions. Are there proper factions like the Han Empire and other strictly "faction" factions or all factions besides the Han Empire bear the name of their leaders? --Nanomat (talk) 18:21, January 18, 2019 (UTC)
We don't know the exact rule for sure. But about 95% of faction AFAIK bear the name of their leaders, and the faction name can change based on heir's name. Han Empire is another anomaly. The third option was shown in the new spy video which one hero Huang Zhong established his new faction named Shang Yong - the name of the city he occupied. It's honesty confusing for me to realize how the naming convention works at current time. I think we shall see more details in a later date. --Lonedwikia (talk) 19:59, January 18, 2019 (UTC)

Different game article titles Edit

I started some changes like renaming Vandals (Total War: Attila) to Vandals (Attila). I think things are more concise that way. What you think? Nanomat (talk) 20:06, May 14, 2019 (UTC)


It's an interesting thought...I can see the benefits of shorthand, and I definitely think that it should be used within the writing of an article, but I prefer the official titles in the pages themselves. I don't know. Let me think about it. Brainwasher5 (talk) 03:36, May 15, 2019 (UTC)

Fandom Staff IntroductionEdit

Wikia Staff
Hi! My name is PsiSeveredHead, and I’m the Fandom Wiki Manager for the Total War Wiki. I am here to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. If you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, etc., please contact me on my message wall or talk page. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) (wall) contribs 21:38, May 20, 2019 (UTC)

Main pageEdit

Hello. My name is Nic and I'm a member of the Wiki Content Team. With the release of Total War: Three Kingdoms. We should like to update the main page of the Wiki. We would be interested in tweaking it to give this wiki a revamp. Is this ok if we go ahead and do so? - Wagnike2 (talk) 19:03, May 23, 2019 (UTC)

  • I do not actually know if those can be reverted. Unfortunately, infoboxes that you were using were not portable/mobile friendly. And being as mobile traffic makes up like 60%, I don't think it would even be adviseable to go back to those. I should have alerted you before moving them over though and for that I definitely apologize for. - Wagnike2 (talk) 21:39, May 27, 2019 (UTC)
  • Somebody was already planning on converting the remaining ones. - Wagnike2 (talk) 00:18, May 28, 2019 (UTC)

Portable Infoboxes Edit

Hello!
My name is Cyanide3 and a Content Moderator as well. I would like to help you with the portable infoboxes on the Total War Wiki. As Wagnike2 mentined earlier portable infoboxes are better for people viewing your content on other mobile plattforms such as the phone or a tablet. I see that you have a lot of infoboxes for each Total War-game and they all have a different colour scheme. I would like to help you transforming the infoboxes into PIs and then use themes for the different colours. Do you have any specific colours you like to suggest? You can write down the hex code down and I will use them within the process. Cyanide3 (talk) 18:43, May 28, 2019 (UTC)

Edit: Besides I would offer to clear some of the infoboxes or is there a huge difference between Template:Infobox/Ships/NTW and Template:Infobox/Ships/FOTS? Wouldn't it be better for the organisation if you have one infobox for all the ships within a game? Cyanide3 (talk) 19:08, May 28, 2019 (UTC)

New Wiki Manager introduction Edit

Hi Brainwasher, I'm Bluerock, and I'm the new Wiki Manager, taking over from PsiSeveredHead. Feel free to drop me a message if you have any questions or need any help editing the Wiki! --Bluerock (talk) 15:39, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

To whom I am messaging. I have started posting pages, or atleast creating new pages, to start filling in the many vacant spaces that still exists for units in Rome Total War and Barbarian Invasion (the latter especially.). If there is something you wish to discuss or comment about these pages I am willing to listen as i know they aren't the best pages but its a start to what I feel like are empty spaces that could have been filled already. 

AaronFireBird1 (talk) 13:10, October 30, 2019 (UTC)

I would if I knew much about the unit itself. That was the mercenary version, I don't have the exact numbers or such for the Graal Knight used by the Romano Briths yet, though I may just look it up in order to get it anyway/ I'm fine with you making those edits if it cleans the article up. 

Project CrossoverEdit

Hey Brainwasher, I've been looking at the Total War wikis over on Gamepedia and I've noticed that Total War Saga wiki (https://totalwarsaga.gamepedia.com/Total_War_Saga_Wiki) could be crossed over to your wiki - basically archived and made to point over to yours. This part of Project Crossover, you can find an in-depth explanation here. What do you think? Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) @fandom 10:52, January 16, 2020 (UTC)


I'd love for any information exchange to occur, since this wiki's pretty quiet in recent years any sort of activity would be a boost. What can I do to help? Brainwasher5 (talk) 15:04, January 16, 2020 (UTC)

Pharaoh housing images Edit

Hey I see that you uploaded the images for Pharaoh's houses on the impression's games wiki. I'm currently playing Caesar III and wanted to upload the respective housing pics to the wiki. In order to keep it consistent, can you tell me what technique did you use to cut the pics? Was it photoshop and which tool exactly? Nanomat (talk) 02:46, January 30, 2020 (UTC)

Ah yes, I appreciate the notice, apologies for that. I will see to it that a proper version is employed.

Possible interwiki design bug for wikitables Edit

hey! I would like to bring this to your attention that when using any table species of class="wikitable" the cell-borders of that table are barely noticeable. e.g. 3k ancillaries. I don't believe it was an interwiki design choice and would like for you to check it out and hopefully pick a colour that contrasts better against the current light steely blue background colour. However, if it was an intended design choice, kindly ignore this and my apologies for being unware. mc_abber (talk) 23:08, May 20, 2020 (UTC)

RE: Possible interwiki design bug for wikitables Edit

I made a few try out tables with higher contrast. You can check them out here- test tables to see if you would prefer a bit more contrast. Thanks —mc_abber (talk) 06:22, May 21, 2020 (UTC)

RE_1: Possible interwiki design bug for wikitables Edit

The first of the four tables is the current default of all species within class="wikitable". We won't have to manually add the design-elements to all the tables as I did with my examples. I was deliberately ignoring the default classes "wikitable" and "article-table" to render different designs. When you change the design-elements on the defualt tables, all tables in all articles with those classes will automatically update to the newly updated design. Which I believe can be accessed from the theme dashboard. However I could be mistaken, the wikimanager ought to know more about this and more. —mc_abber (talk) 01:38, May 22, 2020 (UTC)
