Ha, well, let's say I used to play them! At any given moment I rarely play anything but the latest installment of the series. I sometimes still do need to launch those games just to check something from the Civilopedia, if it isn't on this wiki yet. :)
Oh hey! I just wanted to compliment you on getting those awesome sprites of the Great People in VI, and the Guru and Warrior Monk. You planning on getting the uniques for the DLC civilizations too? Definitely looking forward to it if so!
On Forum:Saving C-evo games (many years ago!!!) you expressed some enthusiasm for having featured articles. I forget whether we ever introduced them. None apparent on current front page. Wikia has rather gone off the idea, i think, but still possible. Any thoughts? Should we start a Discussion about it?
I don't think we introduced them, I guess back then we didn't have that many quality articles for that to have been feasible enough? We should definitely collect a list of our best articles to be featured, a new discussion thread would be good for that! I don't know yet where in the main page we could fit a Featured Article, but that can be solved later.
Hello, I'm rather new around this wiki, so I'm not really sure who to ask about this, but I figure it wouldn't hurt to ask you. I know that all of the Civ 6 pages are very hectic right now as we go about getting it all organized and adding all of the new information and pages to the wiki, but I noticed that the Government pages are all a mess (see Monarchy (Civ6), for example). Is there any way we can get Government infoboxes on these pages, and how? Are users like me allowed to add and create them, or is this something reserved for admins (and making a template)?
Hey, welcome to the wiki! I've noticed you've been doing good job already. :)
If you are comfortable creating new infoboxes, you are absolutely allowed to do that! Just notice that we'd like to use the new(ish) Wikia Portable infoboxes with all new templates. Template:Civic_(Civ6) seems like a good example. The author of that infobox even went one step further and prepared for future Civ6 expansions: the actual infobox code is in Template:Civic_(Civ6)/Base, and if in the future they release an expansion named, say, Goddesses and Queens, and the Civic mechanics are changed in any way, its infobox code will be at [[Template:Civic_(Civ6)/Goddesses and Queens]].
So please feel free to create Template:Government (Civ6)! Good catch, I wonder how nobody else noticed or did anything. Let me know if you have any other questions!
I've created non-portable infoboxes before, and this may sound like a silly question, but how does one create a portable infobox? I'm looking at the Wikia Help Pages and it's all talking about how to edit the template of the portable infobox or things about infoboxes I already know, but I can't find anything about how to start the actual page of a portable infobox. I think I'm probably overthinking it, but how do you go about doing this?
Well, I think all the Wikia help documentation (namely Help:Infoboxes) only describe how to create portable infoboxes, so maybe that's what you have already done? You could also show some of those infoboxes that you have created and I could take a look and let you know if they are portable. And you can basically start creating that infobox by clicking on that red link on my post. If it opens the visual editor, you might want to find the "[ ]" button near the lower right corner and click it to get to the source mode, which is what the documentation uses. That way you can also easily copy/paste material from the other portable infoboxes if you need.
