Hi! Could you please move the page 'Wheelbarrow' to 'Wheelbarrow (Age of Empires II)'?

Because there is an Age of Mythology Wheelbarrow as well.

I've moved the page now.Narve (talk) 15:36, May 25, 2016 (UTC)

Yesterday you changed my edit on the Indians. I think I am right and I want to explain why. At least I want to make clear that the article is not very understandable as it now is.

It is about the civ bonus of cheaper villagers. We first should agree that in the Forgotten that bonus was already present and needs to be listed. I think we should both agree to that.

Now if I read the page and look for the Forgotten civ. bonusses, How am I supposed to now that the bonus for the forgotten? Well, maybe it is in the 5% less after the change in AK. When I read that I thougt the 5% had to do with the number 10,15,20 and 25 who differ all by 5%. I do not think this is the best way of listing it. To my opinion one might think that the bonus does not exist in the Forgotten after reading the page. Maybe I am just not seeing something, but this arem my views about it.

Similar to other civs, like italians, if you have a bonus it should(to my opinion) be listed initially and the changes should be listed below. In case of the Indians you have to look at the changes in the forgotten and use that information to conclude there is a third bonus in the Forgotten. Please let me know how you think about it after giving it a second thought. Lord Vipertooth (talk) 06:35, May 31, 2016 (UTC)

Fair enough. I've reversed my change.Narve (talk) 16:35, May 31, 2016 (UTC)

Very good that we talk about it, because in fact, I am unsure there, either. To clarify: In the civilization bonus section (of units, also (!)) we should first list the initial version and then add the changes later on? Because I dealt with it differently so far.. I will work on the changes tabbers in the near future, anyway, so it would be great to have consensus there. Thanks for bringing it up!

It might be a good idea to create a blog post or something to start a discussion on the subject.Narve (talk) 15:24, June 1, 2016 (UTC)

Image categories?Edit

I've noticed a distinct lack of image categories on this wiki. There's a sizeable number of images, particularly in the form of icons, and yet none of them seem to be organized accordingly. Should this be done or should the matter be left alone? Kimarous (talk) 06:50, June 6, 2016 (UTC)

I've been aware of that issue for some time, but haven't been sure whether we should do anything about it. I guess we could start organizing them.Narve (talk) 18:16, June 6, 2016 (UTC)
I was thinking of at least starting with Age of Mythology images, organizing subcategories like "Myth Unit icons", "God power icons", "God portraits", and the like into a central "Age of Mythology images" category, which of course links to the central Images index. That at least seems like a reasonable and relatively easy place to start. Kimarous (talk) 19:21, June 6, 2016 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. Go for it.Narve (talk) 16:17, June 7, 2016 (UTC)
On a slightly different but image related note: I apologize if this sounds like a stupid question (I'm treading lightly due to an unrelated but recent suspension elsewhere), but given the formatting of the Age of Mythology pages having small icons next to their links, is it worth going through older pages and applying said icons to other pages (for example, the overall *Period* Age pages)? Kimarous (talk) 23:00, June 6, 2016 (UTC)
I don't know. Why don't you try it out on a page, and maybe we can try to get other people's feedback on it.Narve (talk) 16:17, June 7, 2016 (UTC)

So,Are you really from norway,I'm from bosnia

Yes, I'm Norwegian.Narve (talk) 06:17, July 17, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for cleaning up the paragraph I added on the Shennong page. That fraction of a sentence that jumped next to the "stub" box really bugged me.

Elpistachio (talk) 02:32, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

I noticed that too. I have no idea how that keeps happening but it's driving me nuts. I'll be extra careful in future posts and see if I can prevent it.

Elpistachio (talk) 22:53, August 11, 2016 (UTC)

No I haven't been working in a private window, I just open Firefox and open the wiki as normal. I saw the problem with part of the category text missing and attempted to fix it myself but had too much difficulty. Sorry. It may be safer to type in Microsoft Word and pasting directly in the wiki instead.

Elpistachio (talk) 22:59, August 18, 2016 (UTC)

Hi Narve. I decided to finally create the Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds wiki on a whim, using your suggestion as its adress. You would be very welcome as admin and contributor.

Best regards,

secretive message to NARVE Edit

Tundering Hoves,

I was looking in some AoM content lately. I remember some tech which whose effect was different depending on the page you look at. One example is Tundering Hoves, it has a different effect on the page of the god Freyda, and when the page of the Valkyrie is visited, the tech is not showed there at all. Also the effects on the Jarl are badly described. I haven´t played AoM myself, so I leave it to you to edit it. Lord Vipertooth (talk) 17:53, September 11, 2016 (UTC)

Good point. I'll see which page has the correct info.
The Thundering Hooves page had it correct, but I don't see anything wrong with the way the effect is described on the Jarl page. What it is that you think is wrong with it?Narve (talk) 19:46, September 11, 2016 (UTC)

Page nameEdit

Hi again.

There is a Black Rider in Age of Empires and of Age of Empires III. I get that the AoE version is not of such importance, still I think the Black Rider page should be a disambiguation pointing at the corresponding articles. So if you don't disagree, please move the Black Rider page to Black Rider (Age of Empires III) so there can be a disambiguation page.

MasterBroccoli (talk) 14:51, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much! :)

MasterBroccoli (talk) 16:08, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

I've moved the page and created a disambig. Actually, the AoEIII unit was located at "Black Rider (Age of Empires III)" until 2013, but was moved by one of the other admins. Can't remember why, though.Narve (talk) 16:09, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Featured: Edit

Thank you so much for the relevant information you gave to me I will make sure to try and do those things you told me to do on my talk page. Thank you.

Hero InfoboxEdit

Hello again!

I just created a 'new' infobox, AoEIIHero. It's basically the AoEIIUnits Test infobox, but just with two sections cut out and a line added, to fit the heroes and cheat units of the game (since the removed sections are obviously always empty for those units). However, the infobox does not work. When I fill and preview it, it's just gone, not shown at all. Do you have any idea why that might be? And if yes, could you fix it? I can hardly imagine it to be a formatting error on my part, since I really just copied the working infobox down.

MasterBroccoli (talk) 08:04, October 11, 2016 (UTC)

It wasn't gone, it was just placed very far down the page. You were missing the end tag "|}". I've fixed it now.Narve (talk) 18:14, October 11, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much!

New way to display expansion stats Edit

I've been a bit bothered with the way the wiki displays different unit stats for the base game/expansions in the unit stats box, the tooltip template can easily be overlooked, and it becomes problematic with units who had more changes or whose stats are just a bit more complex in general (E.g. the eagle line, mangudai etc.). I thought the Tabber could be a good solution to that and played around with it a bit to make it look decent:

Thoughts on this? Jineapple (talk) 11:40, October 11, 2016 (UTC)

I like it. It is moore noticeable, and it looks like it works well on mobiles as well (the current tooltip solution doesn't seem to handle mobiles too well). But that's a community desicion. You should write something on the blog asking people to leave comments.Narve (talk) 18:14, October 11, 2016 (UTC)
