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
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
k. Commented on the page - also I almost feel like that page should be a blog post instead since it's asking for input and opinions (also a blog post will show up on the main page). Once the rules/guidelines are finalized then I would probably put them on the wiki's policy page
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.
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.
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  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).
I believe it should be covered under Wikipedia:Fair Use, but take this with a grain of salt since I am not a lawyer.
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.
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.
