  • If you're back that is.

    Saw you responding to the Long Guide. Fairly sure ECM +duration skills are still broken for clients :(

  • What do you think of a pager operator quotes page?

    I only ask because I don't want to make one then have it immediately taken off.

    • That sounds great! I wasn't sure if there were enough unique pager operator quotes to warrant it having its own page, but I'd forgotten that there are different responses for 1, 2, 3, and 4 pagers, so there ought to be plenty content.

      Take your time; I'm excited to see how the page looks when it's ready. I'd also greatly appreciate it if you have the chance to get around to the Jacket and John Wick quotes (they are actually my mains), but as I said, there's no hurry. Thanks for taking the initiative. I'll be sure to check out the page once it's ready.

    • No worries, thanks for making the pages. I'll get right on the Jacket and John Wick quotes in about seven hours. I could do a bit now, but I'd rather get it all then double up on quotes.

  • I've "successfully" converted one of the infoboxes, throwables, to the new format (on a test template so as to not affect existing pages Template:Infobox test1) and have a working example on my sandbox page. It's missing a lot of the styling, since I cannot access the .css pages for the Wikia. As well, a lot of the text seems to be difficult to edit. For aesthetics sake, it may pay off to hold on any kind of conversions you may have planned.

    Some of the issues I ran into were:

    • Invariable text sizes
    • Non-centerable text
    • Poor positioning of text on the templates
    • Semi-confusing syntax (although, I suppose I'm just biased since I like the old syntax)

    Some pros, however include:

    • None to minor changes needed on the current pages using the templates. It seems viable to make the converted template use the same inputs, so the infoboxes currently on pages do not need to be changed.
    • Human readable syntax
    • Doesn't look terrible in it's default CSS state

    Feel free to edit my sandbox as you please as well as the template I've linked.

    • Also trying to edit test1 it seems WAY more confusing than the old system. Might just be me though..

        Loading editor
    • I wanted to, @Hassat, but stylizing the text in the template is currently impossible. I can't center anything. And there is 100% nothing wrong with Rhyzak's. I actually think we should stick with his/hers until Wikia gives us more control with their new system. It looks better, works better, and overall is just a better option for our current needs.

      However, if you need a breakdown of what test1 is, I'll go and codenote up the syntax. Should make it easier to read.

      I'm still really new to the Wikia, so if this needs to be handled differently, let me know. Don't want to mess anything up.

  • Hey there. I'm new to the Wikia, having come from the Borderlands Wikia. I'm not exactly sure where I should begin, so are there any on-going projects that I can help out with?

    Apologies if you aren't the one to ask regarding this, but could you point me to someone who could?

      Loading editor
    • Hey MadCrayolaz!

      First off, welcome to the wiki! We're glad to have all the help we can get. As for projects, you've caught me at a rather odd time as an editor... I almost always have at least one pet project, but I'm between projects right now and I can't think of anything pressing.

      However, I can direct you to our to-do list:

      As always, we might need some assistance with collecting and posting information related to recent releases :

      • The Golden Grin Casino, variants and strategies
      • Details on Sokol, his voice lines and their meaning (any Russian speakers around?)
      • Any updates regarding the secret rewards from the Completely Overkill DLC

      That should probably cover pretty much what should be done for the time being. Other than that, if you would like to help us with certain tasks, check out our to-do list.

      We're also constantly looking to revise our current articles to improve accuracy, succinctness, and grammar, so you can peruse some of our articles if that's your cup of tea.

      If you'd like, you can ask around with some of the other contributors as well; GFreeman or Jemjar may have a more focused project for you to attend to.

      Aside from that, let me know if you've got any questions and I'll do my best to help you find the answers you're looking for. Thanks again for stopping by!

    • Thanks for the quick answer. I'll take a look at what can be done.

    • It'll help more to know how much PD2 you play, what platform you use and what gameplay you like most - and then how good your technical skills on Wikia are.

      Basic housekeeping might be needed on some stuff - I'm not 100% sure that the melee weapons all have correct stats on both their own pages and the melee weapons category page but it's a tedious job which I'll get round to some time soon (I have all the screenshots).

      To be honest, just hitting "Random Page" and correcting typos and dodgy grammar might help.

      If you're feeling really keen, get to grips with one of the main infobox templates and write some proper documentation for them, it's increasingly becoming an arcane art.

    • My Wiki-fu is strong. I'll take a look at the templates, see what I can do.

  • Hi K,

    Somewhat ironically, given you're the architect of most of the current category structure, you've got a blog post (Individualized skill pages) which is tagged to the non-existent category "SkillTree skills" (obviously a place-holder, given the attempt at a template page) and which, in turn, lists that category as a "Wanted Category" on the admin dash.

    Can you remove the category link please?

    Thaaaaaaank you

  • I think the anon is just confused because Bain sounds very different in that heist due to old different filter...

      Loading editor
    • Yeah, that's understandable. There's been some confusion between Vlad and Bain anyway, even at Overkill. I think the most recent patches changed it, but for a long time the voice lines in Jewelry Store indicated that Vlad was the contractor of the heist, and not Bain. This would make sense, as Ukrainian Job is merely the Pro version of Jewelry Store, but alas!

      In any case, the voice lines in question are Bain's voice lines, correct? I don't seem to recall Vlad having any lines in that heist, but I could very well be mistaken.

        Loading editor
    • They are Bain's yes. Sound very different though. Maybe they'll re-do them this summer *faint hope*

        Loading editor
    • Haha, yeah, we can only dream... maybe with all that VO work we'll get a rework of the mission dialog lines.

  • Yup, my bad...

    I wrote that when I thought they removed the front seat firing capability of the Muscle car, but later a Wikia user in the comments mentioned it was still in, it just requires one to use a button (crouch).

    • Haha no worries, I make silly mistakes like that all the time. I haven't had the pleasure of experimenting with the new vehicles just yet on account of exams, but reading over that sentence in the article something just didn't seem to fit in ;)

  • Already posted this to GFreeman, but no reply... so if it seems familiar, that's why ;)

    Special:WantedPages is riddled with pages that only appear due to the link in "welcome to the wiki, thanks for modifying [[No Longer Existant Page here]]" Anything that can be done about that so we can actually use it to find valid red-links?

      Loading editor
    • Hey, thanks for bringing this up. WantedPages is rather cluttered, so I agree something should be done to clear up the ghost red links for dead pages.

      Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any quick way to clear up large numbers of them at once, but when I get some free time, I'd be happy to manually edit some of the welcome messages to remove the links.

        Loading editor
      • poking* you to remind this is still annoying me ;)

      Also some in the Category:Candidates for deletion have been there a long time, just altered a picture's category to be reminded afterwards it was meant to be deleted in the first place :/

        Loading editor
    • Hey, thanks for the reminder! As of now, the deletion category should be sparkly and clean; all of the pages and files there have been dealt with appropriately.

      Still quite a number of links to go in the Special:WantedPages, but I will keep working on it.

      Edit: I decided that for some of the more popular missing links it would be easier to just create a redirect page, rather than delete each link individually. I should be able to get rid of the more common pages fairly easily.
