  • Hi, I was wondering where you get the photos with the operators and a smokey background (similar to ingame)? Most characters have it but some don't, for example: 

    Here's Smoke's photo

    Here's Caveira's "model", no smokey background

    I do know that the Caveira image (And most of the character models images) from J. Mark, but is there anyway to get the regular images for Caveira and Capitao?

    Thanks!

  • We're you really in the Air Force? If so, what was your fnal/current rank. I would love to join someday and become a pilot. Maybe you could tell me a little about what it is like.

    Thanks,

  • Hey Awyman13

    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.

    If you're unsure what it will look like; Look at Nathan Drake/Gallery and Mercy/Gallery .. it will be similar to these. :)

    I would do this myself and i imagine it will be a couple of day, if not weeks (I will done when I get time).

    If you think that this isn't a good idea or a problem , give me a message! :)

    EDIT: I have took the liberty and got started on doing a couple, so you see what I'm talking about, hope that's okay :) 

    EDIT #2: I have done all the SAS operator's Gallery.. I don't have time at the moment to carry on , and I wanted to see what you think!

      Right my bad I was more worried about corrupting the gifs and images within the gallery than the heading at the time.

      If there's anything else you need to me to do just reply to this message.

      That's cool . Oh Fair enough, the last thing we want is corrupting data. Nah I'm good, just  keep up the good work :)

      Uhhh how do I do that is it just like adding categories because I'm not fluent in code

      Simply add the code noinclude at the bottom of the page.

  • Hey, Awyman13,

    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 ranty Blog 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.

  • Hey. You think you can add a Voice Actor/Actress thing to the Character Infoboxes? There's a couple VAs for the Operators like Tachanka in Siege so it would help put them in more appropriate places.

  • 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.

    Example

    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.

    You know, like that?

    • 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

        Loading editor
    • Okay...What about quotes of the kits and factions in Multiplayer? Y'know, like: 

      "Ammo, ammo! Come get some!" (United States)

      and

      "Ammunition for you!" (British Empire)

      Like that?

    • That should go under the Commo Rose page

  • Just curious, but where's Clover? He hasn't been active for alot more than 60 days, which is enough for him to be declared inactive according to the Inactivity thing on User Flags.

  • I'm talking about those used in Overwatch wiki for every game-related page (game mechanics, characters, maps and etc.)

    They create a page for full patch notes (can also be useful for being no-flash-required, unlike Official web site) and use template for game-related pages with listing only those related to the initial page (weapon buffs and nerfs for weapon page) and referring to full patch notes page.

    I feel this would be useful in this wiki too since Rainbow Six Siege is being more esports, updated frequently (not as much as we want, but kinda) and all that - and meta changing all the time. It also kinda feels of for patch notes being in trivia section. Just my suggestion.

    • There should be a hub page but all the content should have their own, sort of like a Disambig page. As for the name (Siege) after the patch name should be fine. It would be very long if the entire thing was spelled out only for a page on patch notes.

        Loading editor
    • Got it. Here's hub page and I reworked patch-related templates to be universal (so it can be used for all Rainbow Six games, not just Siege). I'm waiting for feedback before creating pages for other patches. I hope those changes will make this wiki more useful.

      One more suggestion (I feel like I should make a new thread or start a blog for this one though): create a portal for every game (or at least Siege for now), re-visit main page and think about "news" feature of this wiki (it's so... "dead" while COD and BF wikis use it).

      Thanks for listening, and just for disclosure - I don't have much free time, it's just that I feel it's time to push changes since Siege getting popular.

  • ...What is this template used for? Because I'm tempted to delete it.

  • So, now that I have my promotion on this particular wikia, and I don't want to sound condesending or anything, could you please change my name colour here to the appropriate "Trusted User" orange to give people an indication of my new job as a trusted moderator here? Thanks.
