General ongoing Wiki projects[edit source]

  • Special:WantedPages - articles that need to be created.
    • Most of the top 50 are units. But if you scroll down past that, there's some others like autoresolve.
  • Category:Stubs needs going through.
    • {{stub}} is for tiny articles with not much info. For bigger articles, you can replace the stub tag with {{expand}}
    • There is a lot of articles clogging up the stub category which shouldn't be there. For example: Beard-Thing Sacrifice has an unnecessary stub tag.
      • This is a problem because it stops us finding the articles which really need attention.

Project: images[edit source]

The wiki needs more images! More screenshots of units, provinces and game mechanics, especially. Don't be afraid to upload some today! Revoran (talk) 02:58, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Main page overhaul[edit source]

What do people think about somehow putting Legendary Lords on the main page? It seems like people pay a lot more attention to LLs than factions. And in most cases factions only have one LL anyway.

Thoughts? Revoran (talk) 11:06, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

That is a valid assessment. I think as well that people focus more on the LLs than the factions. Do you think we should remove the faction crests then? Might get too cluttery with everything together. Hammerture (talk) 22:39, 23 May 2020 (UTC)Hammerture
I personally prefer keeping the factions at the forefront to avoid clutter, at least until they inevitably split all the LL's into their own faction. But I am not going to pretend I am any sort of authority on the matter. DonQOT (talk) 01:43, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
OK thanks for the feedback, how about we stick with the current layout for now, but I might set up some unprotected test pages (I think there might already be some existing ones, I'll have a search around) where everybody can experiment to see what looks good for the front page.

Inventory pages[edit source]

Updating all of these is a big task, but a lot of the work is already done!

  • Articles need to be created for lots of items.
  • Other items / follower articles need proper updating with the right categories and information on effects/abilities.

Landmarks[edit source]

The Special buildings page needs updating. Seems like every patch, a few more landmarks are added.

Furthermore, all the pages for the landmark buildings (see Category:Special landmark buildings for a list) should probably be categorised with stuff like Category:Mortal Empires landmarks and Category:Greenskins landmarks.

Special buildings are my jam, so I will be working towards fixing the red links and adding new ones when I have the time to indulge. DonQOT (talk) 01:45, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Important articles which need a major overhaul/updates[edit source]

  • Eye of the Vortex - the province list is woefully out of date and the interactive map (while awesome) is out of date Revoran (talk) 08:31, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Unit stats needs[edit source]

We need to think of a better way to handle unit stats, maybe with some kind of automation. It's just not practical to manually update hundreds of unit pages every patch. Revoran (talk) 11:06, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

I think there is a guy running a page that keeps track on unit stats. Might be worth to check it out if it can help us in some way? Hammerture (talk) 22:41, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Faction / race pages[edit source]

There is a lot of unnecessary duplicate info.

For instance, we probably don't need to list every Empire mechanic on both Reikland and The Empire. Ideally, general Empire mechanics would go on the Empire race page. But any faction-specific mechanics could go on the Reikland/Golden Order/The Huntsmarshal's Expedition pages.

On the same topic: faction mechanics need much better coverage, especially for newer factions. Eg: need coverage of all the new mechanics for Greenskins.

I'll try to take a look on this. Hammerture (talk) 22:43, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Legendary Lord pages[edit source]

Many of these need updating.

You can use Malekith as an example of a good one. --- Revoran

I'll be fiddling around with this one too. DonQOT (talk) 01:47, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Battle maps[edit source]

The Wiki has basically zero information about these. We should probably at least cover the multiplayer ones.
