    The Faulcon DeLacy Logo

    I'm wondering where the manufacturer logotypes came from, were they traced by a commander or did Frontier publish these assets somewhere? Because I can't find the source at all. I'm thinking of adding them to my separate project, EDAssets

    • Can't find the exact page, but I found those on the Elite: Dangerous website. At one point they had the ships and such detailed on there and that's where the logos came from.

    • Ah I see. Thanks!

  • Hey!

    I need a NPOV and statement, if you have the time, on the following Thread:20653 as this has to do with collision with an admin and a contributor.

    Thanks

    • Looks fine to me. If someone is putting incorrect information make sure to verify in-game which one is correct and then add in the correct information (which is what I'm pretty sure you do already). Other than that I agree with taking out personal opinion while attempting to keep factual information.

    • Also looks fine to me, as the listed manuverability reflects total manuverability, not just pitch up/down rate.  The contributor was arguing that the pitch up/down rate was the only basis for the number and this is not the case.  Additionally, personal opinions shoud be in the talk section, not the mainh part of page.  Thus I feel you were right to remove the opinions and revert the changes

  • Tested my Cobra w/A3 distributor and it takes ~7.8 seconds to recharge to full after depleting the capacitor. The table says it charges 2.8 units/sec and 24 units in the capacitor; that means 8.57 seconds to recharge which is not demonstrable.

  • I created Proposed: Guidelines to help with moderating and creating content or comments for all users on the Wikia. This is due to inconsistency with spelling, articles, naming-schemes here and in-game, and image-watermarks on some screenshots

    • Oh and that reminds me - the swearing can be easily removed with a wiki bot. Unfortunately I haven't been able to figure out how to make/run one.

    • As a programmer, see GitHub, I can probably create a bot. But I do think there are already some bots out there we can use

  • We have very little lore on the Wikia of the ongoing events and figured we'd give a try typing up the current and future lore.

    But I'm not sure how to structure it. We already have a few pages of the people (characters, which I think should be renamed to key persons or something similar) but it's far from up-to-date, which is mostly because it's not linked anywhere on the Wikia and thus hard to see.

    I was thinking of a main page of Lore that mentioned the `Imperial people`, `People of the Alliance` and `Federal People` (or possibly switch people for members or key persons) and linked to Events, which can contain stuff such as the Mercs of Mikkun, Imperial Succession and the Lugh for Indepenance. Then adding in links through and some lore through each of the faction pages.

    Do you have any better ideas for structure?

    • Sounds like a good idea to me. Also, lately I've kind of fallen out of E:D so I may not be quite as active here as I have been. I still check the wiki for updates/changes/vandalism but may not contribute much other than that until I get back into the game.

        Loading editor
    • I'll create some pages and see where it goes.

      No worries, your E:D interest might come back once v1.3 comes! :)

  • Hi, I have two questions (or rather things to discuss):

    1) What is the correct license for images made from the content of a proprietary game?

    2) I hate images where users embed their cmdr name inside. Although I understand people want to be somehow famous, I believe such things do not belong here (or any wiki) in this form, credits should be given in appropriate places - image copyright / description. As an absurd example, here [1] is a change from Dagnarius where he removed my picture and replaced it with his own, with his name on it (and also added a location, which I believe should be also only in description).

      1. I believe it should be covered under Wikipedia:Fair Use, but take this with a grain of salt since I am not a lawyer.
      2. I agree. I'm not sure if it violates any Wikia rules though - I'll check into it.

      Edit: Okay so as to point number 2 it appears that it is okay according to Wikia's rules and policies. We (the elite-dangerous wiki admins) could make specific wiki rules and policies against such things though, but before I do that I would first have to get in touch and discuss it with the other admins here.

  • Apparently some people are reporting that the Shield Cell Bank charges were correct before and that there's more than one charge for most of them

    • Then the in-game stats are possibly incorrect. I'm fine with people changing the values, but to completely remove information that is displayed in-game instead of correcting it is not okay.

      If users can verify that the in-game stats are wrong then they need to

      A) file a support ticket

      B) add it as a bug to the page

      C) go through and change the values while keeping the other information that was added

      I don't really put much stock in anons. If they want to have a discussion on the issue they should create an account, post screenshots and create a dialog somewhere on the wiki.


      Since you've brought this to my attention I'll add the bug and add the values back into the table.

      Edit: I've edited the page and made it clear that there is a bug. Hopefully the current version is agreeable - if not please let me know and I'll attempt to correct it.

  • Hey,

    The Category:Traders is essentially the same as Category:Freighters so it's abdundant, mind removing it and from the Ships dropdown menu?

      Loading editor
    • What do you mean by "Ships dropdown menu"?

      Edit: Figured it out.

      K so removed it from the navigation dropdown and removed the category from all pages. As to deleting it I'll hold off for now (even though the page has no content) as it may become useful in the future if there is a freight ship that isn't necessarily for trading or visa versa.

        Loading editor
    • Oh I suppose something you did removed it.

      It was in the dropdown of Ships link in navigation at top, was listed under passenger

      Edit: Great, thanks

  • Hey would you mind changing ShipInfobox's maneuverability to the british spelling of manoeuvrability? The page is locked and I can't change it myself
