FANDOM


I have moved the previous entries here to the Community Portal discussion page. Please restrict the discussion on this page to the possible additions to the Main page itself.

Propsed changes

  • Reorganisation of the main page to make it look like an introduction page rather than the cluttered mess it is in right now. The main page would be a frequent point of entry for users and we should do our best to make it look as friendly and attractive as possible to attract readers.
  • Addition of news updates from the Gundam scene.
  • Someone want to change the section titles to some other color besides bright eye-stabbing yellow?

Navigation and many other stuff

You may have noticed I've improved and/or added quite a few articles. Just figured it was sad some things wrong with this wiki, although it seems some articles were named dif, so you may see a few accidental articles that are more than one of the same thing (Only example I've seen is Dynstay Warriors Gundam, under the Gundam Listings some of them are Gundams already here just named odd or whatnot). I also added additional Navigation that lists by century and series, and moved it to the bottom of the page. I hopet his at least somwhat improves this page. Your welcome. --Chipmonk329

Changes

Well collectively a group of people have changed the mainpage ! Please contribute more on suggestions and opinions for us to work with! Sealedsoul 12:49, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Template Technology

I propose that we create a template for the various technologies that appear in the Gundam Series (GN Drives, Neutron Jammers, Satellite Cannon...). Has anybody an idea what such a template should include ? I suggest that we use templates like the ones on the Star Wars Wikia (example of Weapon Template). If no one has a problem with it, I will create such a template and include it in several articles about technologies. Diabound00 13:01, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

  • OK, after two and a half months off of this Wiki (most times), I created a simple Template which I will start to include into the technology pages. I hope no one has problems with this. Diabound00 09:25, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a really good idea. I think the articles need to be reorganized and standardize the articles. Here is an example of what I actually want to achieve: M9E Gernsback. It will make the page look much more organized and less cluttered. - plau 14:34, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Mess

For whatever reason, the feature quote is total mess. Kuruni 14:15, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Just noting. All the script calculation for weights regarding metric ton etc. are wrong. Here they are short tons. Everyone in Japan uses SI metrics, nobody would ever use anything else than metric ton by default. In technical terms only transports and navies would ever use any other ton measurement. This applies to all countries other than US, GB, etc. Acendel 18:11, January 4, 2012 (UTC)

Own pages for different Striker Pack equipped suits

Over the past few weeks, I have expanded the different articles of the Cosmic Era timeline. I plan to continue to do this but now I have a question regarding certain suits to ask. There are several suits which can be equipped with Striker, Wizard and whatever packs (Strike, Dagger, ZAKU, Dagger L...). Should I write an own article for every suit even if only the pack is different or should the suits be combined into one. I myself prefer the different articles for each suit. After all this is a Wikia and it would make it far easier to write the individual pages than combine all infos into one article, especially with suits who have so much packs like the Strike of the Impulse. Hope you agree with me. Diabound00 18:06, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Just like current version, simply written the Striker Pack as equipment. The quickest way is link to invidual pack in striker packs article, but has section for each pack in MS article is better. Seperate it into several articles is the worst idea, especially when you think of Astray Outframe and its ability to equip almost everything ^_^ . Kuruni 03:47, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the comment although I don't agree with you. While it may be quicker and easier to simple link to the individual packs or write a short comment about the configuration, it would make the articles overly long and perhaps even unorganized. Although individual articles may be rather short, if you look at other Wikias they also often write an article for nearly every small theme, equipment, .... Also some specially equipped suits often have their own story, which can be added to the article. Lastly there is no limit of articles we can write on the Wikia. Its after all a Wikia about Gundam which allows us to go into great detail. Look at the Wookiepedia and how detailed their articles often are. Diabound00 15:39, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
      • I known, just to point out that it will be real pain if you want to work on the Outframe (as noted, known to equip with all common Striker, Wizard and Silhouette plus few extra. And also has Outframe D as seperate variant, the later simply has few cosmetic modifications two pilot seats). Personally, I like it more when closely relate stuff put in one article since it provide better picture of the subject. The worst case, IMO, is when an article simply repeat another save for single sentence on cosmetic note. Although it's just opinion. Kuruni 08:26, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
        • I do get your point and believe me, I don't plan to make the mistakes you did point out. If a suit with a striker, wizard silhouette, pack has enough material to be put into an own article then I will do (Gunner ZAKU Warrior, f.e.) but if there are too much different versions without enough story for each of them then I will include them in a single article (I already did it for the Raysta Yoon Sefan or the different Hyperion Gundams). Diabound00 17:16, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Lack of Table Style classes

Does this wiki have any table style classes? If yes, what are they? If not, would it be possible to include them. - plau 13:03, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

Poll

Hey guys was just woundering if anyone would be interested in adding a poll to the main page, i put this in the preview of the main page and it looked ok but, but since it is a wikia everyone should have an opinion and their say.

Which is the best mainstream Gundam in the Early UC period?

The poll was created at 15:10 on August 4, 2010, and so far 72 people voted.

Denbo786 15:09, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

This might be late, but poll is a good idea. Though, how do we maintain it? per month? per year? --Bronx01 18:28, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
Someone, please make more activity like this poll. This can make our community more lively. It seems that we only have a dozen of active members recently... Pronunciation (talk) 08:12, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Changes

The Main page needs some changes aound here. I have a few suggestions.

  • Most of the big links of here are 00 related. We should put in some UC stuff here as well
  • The same quote has been up for awhile now. We shoud find a good character quote and put it there.
  • The featued article should probably be changed monthly. Say for October we have a article on the Sinanju or somethig.
  • Does anyone have the main page template so I can go in and make some proposed changes?
  • Gaeaman788 19:54, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
The name of the templates are in the article of main page when you press edit. I'll try to get them one by one when I have time. One thing though, when changing something in there, it would be good if you change it based on user suggestions (for now if possible). There are already people who voted for next Featured Quote for example, I don't think ignoring them would be a good idea. --Bronx01 18:24, October 12, 2010 (UTC)

List of Templates:

Just a small point

Hey guys, this is my first edit here so I'm sorry if this post is in the wrong place, is poorly written or any other issues there may be.

Now, I think it would be good if we could start to get a 'Gundam Musou 3' page going, there are a few images floating around here and there on pages such as the 'Double X' Gundam. Thing is, I'm not too good at making pages so if you guys could maybe do some groundwork and I'll work on everything else to do with the Wiki page for it.

Thanks for reading,
NathanCX 23:14, October 31, 2010 (UTC)

Suggestion

I think we should put link to Gundam Fanon and tell everyone who want to show his or her Mary Sue Gundam to post it there. Kuruni 08:40, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Monobook problem

Maybe I am the only one who regularly uses the monobook setting, but has anyone else noticed how on the main page with the monobook appearance that the Gundam wiki sidebar (or whatever that list of links on the left side of the page is called) doesn't show up?--Animefan29 05:10, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

  • I stick to monobook and it's fine. Actually, I choose monobook since it's only skin that has "Recent changes" on sidebar. Kuruni 07:42, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

Really? I'll admit the rest of the website is fine. But whenever I am on the main page the sidebar just does not show up. But if you don't have the problem then what is it that isn't working right?--Animefan29 11:45, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

I should probably also mention that this is a recent problem that started a few days ago. Before that everything was normal.--Animefan29 11:46, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

  • Oh yeah, just realise that it does missing on the main page. To be accurate, several links on sidebar seem to be moved to lower right of the page. Kuruni 12:02, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

So that's where they went, I never looked down their before. I wonder why its doing that?--Animefan29 12:04, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

Monobook gallery problem

Another problem seems to have come up with the Monobook style. For some reason, even though no edits were made all of the gallery images at the bottom of each page is lined up single file on the left side of the page. I am not sure what is going on, I just know that it makes it more tedious to go through the gallery.--Animefan29 17:47, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

History dropdown on pages gone?

Is it just me, or is the Edited by user x days/hours/minutes ago dropdown on all the pages' edit boxes suddenly gone? It's not a major problem, I was just curious if it was just me and if it was because of code someone changed or if it's wikia itself. Kit-chan 19:27, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

New template is confusing.

I did some major edits on some MS articles using the new template. But can you say it's hard to use? And do we need to use that in all MS/MAs? D:

Latest Page Additions

Um... these "new" pages that are being added lately (some Z Gundam pages, random Gundam manga shorts, etc)... their summaries and main info aren't even in comprehensible English... who keeps making them and why? Deackychu 16:47, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

You have to ask Alexsena for that. From what it looks like, English is not his first language. --Bronx01 (talk|contribs) 17:01, September 9, 2011 (UTC)
I think he might be using google translate or something. Some of the original text, before I fixed them, looks like something from a translator.
~ Azkaiel 18:37, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Believe his first language is Portuguese (based on some of the verbs used), the basic thing is that he makes the pages, and we touch them up to standardize the page qualityGaeaman 788 - The sign of Zeta leads to a dead end 23:57, September 9, 2011 (UTC)


How come no one has done an article on infantry from the One year war? If you'd like I could do both Earth Federation and Zeon articles and pictures.Markus Gellis 15:22, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

That would be great, please do it. :) Kuruni 15:23, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

Article naming, about mech with alternate model number

Some of them can be confusing. Like RMS-179/RGM-79R GM II, while it's acually two model number list together, it's easily mistaken by newcomer that its model number is RMS-179/RGM-79R. I think we should just list one, making redirect for another and note about it in article rather than put both in the name. Like how it's MS-14S Gelgoog Commander Type instead of MS-14S/YMS-14 or MS-14S (YMS-14).Kuruni 06:12, January 22, 2012 (UTC)

Stat Panel problems

Has anyone else notice that there is something funky going on with the statistic panels? I have just started frequenting again after a bit of an absence and noticed that on not a single page I visit are the stats anything more then incomprehensible gobbly-gook in both the monobook format and the new wiki look.

I checked other wikis and so far this is the only one to have that problem. Does anyone know why?--Animefan29 (talk) 02:49, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

Gundam Official shutdown

After taking time examining this myself it is fairly obvious that not only the Gundam Official website has shut down, but there isn't any chance it will be back since it looks like all the data has been deleted. I think a choice needs to be made about removing the links to that site since they are no longer useful. -Adv193 (talk) 05:16, December 12, 2012 (UTC)

Changes to front page 08/11+

Proposal

Can you guys consider these changes to the front page? I can do them myself. No matter who you are, please provide input and whether you're okay with this or not.

  • Poll section - done
  • Removal of featured picture
  • Featured quote changed so a random quote reloads every so often, basically every time one reloads the front page
  • Did you know changed so pools of random did you know reloads every so often, basically every time one reloads the front page

« Zahlzeit 04:09, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

I'm in favor of these changes as they will add more variety to the front page. I think we should retain the "featured picture" section though. Did you work on the poll section? If so, thank you for adding it. --Zeikfried 08:27, August 11, 2013 (UTC)
Why do you think the featured picture section should be retained? It isn't updated much, and few pictures will be able to fit the criteria. It seems like it just clogs up everything unnecessarily. « Zahlzeit 23:28, August 13, 2013 (UTC)
I say get rid of the featured quote thing for the same reasons.
Sioraf.killeens (talk) 23:27, October 27, 2013 (UTC)


Stuff I noticed.

Sup.  I'm new here, so I'll be quick.  The mechanics tab for FC and UC are all switched up.  I've actually made a habit of going to FC instead of UC, but I'm just puting it down that I'm going to change it.  Also, the FF-4 Torieles, which I probably mispelled, is not in UC mechanic, which I will attempt to remedy.  I checked for other planes, but they aren't there, so I'll fix that real quick.  There are pages for them though.

Alomoes (talk) 05:35, October 8, 2017 (UTC)Alomoes

Nevermind. I figured out that that section is only for mobile weapons, and tanks, planes and other stuff are not mobile weapons. Well, that is mildly annoying, as I had to do a bit of digging to find out what this thing was. I have another plane that I need to identify as well which is also a pain.
