April's "Golden Age"Edit

Its funny how on this wiki, April 2012 seems to be the "golden age" according to Wiki Stats.

On April 2012:

  • Edits are +523%.
  • Images are +336% and there are more pictures by +391%.
  • Videos are +100%.
  • Creation of articles are +325% (double the amount of articles).

And btw, as of May 2012, we have 44 more articles than the other Wargame Wiki, which only has 89 articles

What was the admin smoking? Just change the Wargame Red Dragon reaction poll. -_-

Unit Box and Weapons Template Edit

I predict this is going to be a lengthy read, so please bear with me to the end. I would appreciate admin feedback on this (DrakFira, Privatejfx141, GhOsterider444 [if he's even still around]).

Keep in mind this is all written with Airland Battle and Red Dragon in mind, as I don't own European Escalation.

I propose a massive reorganization of how unit box and weapons template works.

Recently, I removed the Switch line on the stabilizer section in the Unit Box template for a few reasons:

  • Wargame Airland Battle and Red Dragon have the following color schemes:
    • None = white
    • Bad/Poor/etc = red
    • Medium/etc = orange
    • Good/etc = lime
    • Very Good/etc = lime
    • Exceptional/etc = cyan
  • Yellow is not part of this coloring scheme. The Switch/Stabilizer template features a coloring scheme that is not present in ALB or RD.
  • All other unit attributes in the unit box feature a respective color field (eg accuracy1, acc1color, optics1, optics1color, etc). An unknown contributor actually included a stabilizercolor field but failed to update the template code (which I did). However, I realized that the Switch was overriding the stabilizercolor field, so I ended up removing that line from the code.

I propose we detach switches from any and all unit box/weapons templates, since these same numbers can mean different things in different things (eg a frontal armor of 7 may be lime in European Escalation, but red in Red Dragon) and therefore we cannot afford to standardize the entirety of the unit box along all 3 games. However, certain attributes could use switch support; for example, size, optics, and stealth maintain the same text and color scheme since Airland Battle and as such can be standardized.

I would like to hear back from you all.

Yellow existed in EE for values 5-7 on weapons and "normal" for stabs and size, but ALB changed it so orange and lime took its place.
As to your switches problem, well isn't that why we have separate unitboxes in the gamebuttons tabs and separate weapon templates for all three games? Not that I mind such a change like that, I'm just a little surprised it's a problem for you.

It's a problem for me because it's using colors not present in ALB and beyond. Here's a link to the Weapons Template page. I don't see 3 separate weapon templates here. It's all universally derived from here.
The problem I fixed was that the Switch/Stabilizer switch was being universally applied to all stabilizers - EE, ALB, RD. Which meant red for None, orange for Bad, yellow for Medium, lime for Good/Very Good (to be precise, this switch template uses "Chartreuse" rather than lime), and cyan for Exceptional. The first 3 instances are not the case in ALB and RD.

Oh I see, I meant that we use separate weapons templates for each unit page for each game the unit appears in.
Well you'll have to take it up with JFX141, he handles the programming on the wiki, I handle the general editing.

To all who see thisEdit

I have recently added color support for various Airland Battle and Red Dragon attribute fields in the UnitBox template. I have also created separate categories for the Red Dragon templates:




Since these various units use one or more different types of attributes. If you wish to update the older pages with colors, here are the fields:

|speedcolor =

|roadspeedcolor =

|autonomycolor =

|fuelcolor =

Just copy and paste them in their respective unit boxes and fill out the colors.

give the original of the phrase "Мы боремся, отчественная война" in English, there is clearly a mistake Участник:Tankist Говорить 10:34, September 14, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry but I don't know how, I wasn't the one who put it there.

      "Для Родина-Мать!" is also mistake. "За Родину!" is better variant ("For the motherland!"). page in russian wiki 20:05, March 19, 2019 (UTC)
