I came across this article today and stopped by to see if this is something that needed added to the community. Of course I looked around first to see if it was already there, or if Bundles was something even covered here. I didn't see anything. If you do, would you please link it to me? I would be happy to update the articles if needed. I also noticed the game has weekly in-game challenges (events) but didn't find that information here either. I play Far Cry and things like this are covered on that community, but of course that doesn't mean everyone does it. Thanks!
Hey Awyman13! I'm Jamie from FANDOM's Community Development team! Not sure if we never asked you if you are interested in turning on the Discussions feature for this community, and migrating the Threaded Forums across as well. It looks like you guys don't use your forums all that much, so it might make a lot of sense to migrate and see if Discussions are used on mobile.
In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. Discussions also links with our FANDOM Apps, which this community has and it allows app users to easily take part in Discussions as well. You can read more about Discussions here.
For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.
If you have some concerns, Discussions, and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions and Forums will be sunsetted as a feature, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.
Feel free to have an open discussion with your community about this, and I'm available for any questions you might have. Have a good one!
As the title of this message suggest, I think it might be time to make a separate gallery page for all operator, as the gallery section are getting quite chunky, and I not sure if people want to scroll that far down!
My Idea is to just use the source editor and copy the gallery section , then paste it on a new page (Called [Named Operator]/Gallery for example). We would still keep the gallery main header but instead it would be just a link to the gallery page.
First of all - congratulations on your promotion! Long time no messages and talk. And so... this message is mostly about wiki. I know that it's not your main Wiki - edit count of Battlefield Wiki told me that. Really nice work, man! I thought about joining it too, but its community is already so big and there's no worry about any article being outdated :)
I love Rainbow Six series. I also love the idea of open encyclopedias like Wikis - people visit it to find related information. That's why I wanted to share some ideas I got in my mind. Most of them are listed my rather rantyBlog 1, but in short: 1. I want to rework all weapon pages (after weapons - all other pages). I feel like those pages have too much unrelated information. Take a look at Vector .45 ACP page - it's kinda what I will try to do (inspired by CS and COD wikis pages). 2. I feel like reworking Main Page too to reflect current series status (example in my blog), Super Walkthrough was really good though... but outdated now, it's too difficult to navigate in Main Page right now imo.
Do you want live examples (like offline HTMLs and screenshots) of my ideas/suggestions or I can just edit it? Would be glad to hear suggestion, criticism. Thank you! P.S. I will take it very slow, so there will be less minor edits after.
Love the ideas. Go ahead and start editing and we'll see how it turns out. Just note that the main page was created by Wikia Staff and that some elements must remain. They also did a deal with Ubisoft so links to buy the game, etc. must remain.
This is about the BF Wiki because I find that that Wiki's Talk Page is way too tedious. Anyways, can there be a page or something about the different weapon variants in? Like, maybe the category section could have that.
Trench variants have greatly increased hip fire accuracy than most other variants.
Optical variants have a globe sight and a foregrip, giving an increased aimed accuracy for mid-ranged combat.
Sweeper variants usually overhaul how a weapon works by giving it another mechanic or changing what it does.
Marskman variants give a high-powered scope but differ with Medic kits and Scout kits. The Medic kit give its variant a fore grip along with a slightly less powerful scope that resembles the Scout's Sniper variant, while the Scouts themselves have a palm rest along with a different shaped scope.
I see what your saying but its seems unneccessary. Each of these weapons on differ slightly so having category pages for them is unneeded. There are weapon disambig pages like Carbine, etc that still need BF1 weapons listed but not their variants
