Would you be opposed if I were to finish converting this wiki's mercenary infobox template to a portable format and apply the changes across the wiki (it would affect 28 articles)? It looks like another user had started generating a new draft for this template at one point, but I went in this morning and tweaked it a bit more, so it now closely-resembles the current, non-portable version that the wiki is using. Could you take a look at the result here, and tell me what you think? It can be tweaked further if you'd prefer.
If you're curious about my reasoning behind this, it is because the current template does not appear to display all information properly on mobile devices (no info below the "Damage per second" parameter displayed when I checked). Since over 80% of the traffic to this wiki is via mobile devices, this is something that should probably be addressed. - Sitb(Message wall / Talk page) 11:48, June 9, 2019 (UTC)
I think the template that you created give a better presentation. Much more like any other infobox in this wiki. I would love to see it replaced.
Some suggestions, if possible, may be it is better if we move General Information to consist of: Troop Type, Strength, Weakness, Favourite Target. While Mercenary Camp Level and Army Size are inside Statistics.
I finally got around to working on this template again. I have re-grouped the parameters into the appropriate groups you suggested, and added a new "DMultiTarget" parameter (I think that's what you were referring to). I left out icons like the Troop infobox has, because I'm not sure there's an icon for every parameter in this case, but let me know if you want me to try adding icons for some/all of the parameters, like the other infobox has. I can also switch around the order of anything, if you'd like it tweaked further. Check out the latest result here, and let me know what you think. - Sitb(Message wall / Talk page) 12:31, July 6, 2019 (UTC)
Hi. For the DMultiplierTarget, I think the Target is different for each unit variant. As I try to add all the Troop Tactics Troop Infobox, I realized that Nexon dont have a set of predetermined target combinations. That's why the Parameter's target description is needed to be determined by other Parameters. In the Troop Infobox, I the define the other parameter as Damage Multiplier Target, while the first parameter is DPS vs Damage Multiplier Target.
I'm trying to make sense of what you've said above, but I'm at a bit of a disadvantage having never seen the Dominations game in action, so I'm not entirely clear on the subject matter that I'm attempting to format.
I can easily do a straight-up conversion between the old infobox format and the new portable one, which is already mostly complete at this point. Swapping around some of the existing parameters and adding a few simple new ones wasn't too much of a challenge either. However, adding additional complex parameters like the one you're describing, may be better implemented by someone who has in-depth knowledge of how this data is used in the game, how it is impacted by other variables, how damage multipliers work etc. (my knowledge of these things is almost nil). I see you've tweaked some of the other infoboxes on this wiki in the past, so if you have a good idea of how you want this one to work, and if you're comfortable, you are welcome to play around with the draft I've been working on here, as it won't actually impact any articles yet.
Otherwise, perhaps there's a way you can "dumb down" an explanation of how this data works in-game for me. Is this actually less-complex than how I'm interpreting it? 🤔 - Sitb(Message wall / Talk page) 11:22, July 7, 2019 (UTC)
Sorry. I didn't realized that you haven't played the game. And I believe my English is pretty bad so that I cann't convey what I though really well. I have changed the new infobox a bit to make it clearer. :)
Interesting. I'm not sure I can help with that particular thing. I've not had much experience working with infoboxes that lift content from other articles, typically just those where the data is entered in manually within the article where it is to appear.
For the time being, are you ready for the draft of the new infobox to be approved and implemented on the wiki to resolve the current mobile display issue?. - Sitb(Message wall / Talk page) 09:52, July 9, 2019 (UTC)
It has been approved, and the template is now live. I checked out a few of the articles where it is used, and I can't see any complications. Even better, all the content is now view-able on mobile! 😃 - Sitb(Message wall / Talk page) 00:09, July 10, 2019 (UTC)
I thought I would reach out to you, since you are one of the administrators here. I have recently been appointed as the Fandom Wiki Manager for this wiki. I am here to assist this community in an official capacity and act as a liaison between you, and full-time Fandom staff. If you, or any other users of this wiki ever have an issue or question related to the wiki (editing, templates, wiki design, or any other matters), please feel free to contact me on my message wall, and I will assist in any way I can.
this time I will have to promote you, the reason is that none of the 2 bureaucrats that manage the wiki is active (Mack and me). And I'm just checking to see that everything goes well. Mack stopped editing from September 20.
If for some reason I disappear nobody can take care of the wiki as it happened in 2017.
Bureaucrats are one level "up" from administrators. Bureaucrats only have the ability to manipulate user rights, as well as block and unblock users, so this right is generally used in addition to the administrator group.
They have the ability to promote and revoke rollback, Content Moderator, and administrator rights as well as appointing new bureaucrats. While they cannot directly remove another user's bureaucrat status, they can remove their own. Bureaucrats also have the ability to remove a user's bot status in case the bot is malfunctioning, but bot flag requests are handled by staff after being approved (by either a bureaucrat or the community).
The bureaucrat status can only be removed by FANDOM Staff or by the Bureaucrat themselves.
As you can see Bureucrat is the most "badass" role for a normal user. Although that does not mean you can do evil things, even if you are a bureaucrat there is a great wall of authority above you, which are the staff members of the central wiki that can remove the bureucrat role of the "evil bureucrats".
