This is a proposed video that you should watch!

If you need some additional help, say it on my talk page.

I'm looking forward to see you editing. To battle, hero! Huzzah!

-- Energy X (Talk) 09:01, November 26, 2012

EditsEdit

Thank you for inserting categories, but I am afraid that the categories can be more "precise".

One example is here. You added Heroes V and Heroes V characters categories. Thefirst one is not needed, as the Heroes V characters category is part of Heroes V category.

If you have any quesions, leave them at my talk page. Energy X 20:13, November 26, 2012 (UTC)

Ah. I've been used to wikis where redundant categories were preferred. I've deleted the extra categories. Thanks for the info.Narve (talk) 20:37, November 26, 2012 (UTC)

InfoboxEdit

Hey, since you are making progress with H5 creatures, I should let you know about the infobox. Here's the article with it. Energy X 18:16, December 8, 2012 (UTC)

MessageEdit

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you! You have been quite a help these times. Energy X 15:09, December 23, 2012 (UTC)

CostEdit

Damnit, if I'd seen sooner I'd inform you of it. The cost per unit was missing, so I added it to infobox. Can you add the Unit cost in the CrestureStats infoboxes? (You just need to insert |cost= into the infobox.) Same goes for growth. (|growth=) Energy X 18:44, December 28, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I'll get on that.Narve (talk) 19:29, December 28, 2012 (UTC)

ForumEdit

Hey, I'd really appreciate if you give your input here. Energy X 11:01, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

StatsEdit

Well, here is that template you requested. Let me just add some final things and you will be able to use it. Energy X 16:50, January 8, 2013 (UTC)

There we go. You can use the template. Energy X 17:03, January 8, 2013 (UTC)

Well the template was already present before so I just edited it. But I will do some more work on it. Energy X 17:21, January 8, 2013 (UTC)

I think I have made the clean-up on that template. Everything is in order! Energy X 10:30, January 9, 2013 (UTC)

AbilitiesEdit

Nice work. One thing however - can you merge the icons abilities (that have been seperated) to creatures' pages? Energy X 13:42, January 11, 2013 (UTC)

Well, recent edits (like Berserk (H4 ability)) are quite small to have their own page, so can you merge them (in this case, Berserk (H4 ability) to Berserker page)? Energy X 13:58, January 11, 2013 (UTC)

That's what I was heading for, actually - moving the content and delete the pages. Energy X 17:22, January 11, 2013 (UTC)

There we go - just some additional new lines and everything's good. Energy X 18:12, January 11, 2013 (UTC)

I see I haven't told you... you can use some of the ability icons from this list, so you don't have to upload some of the images. Energy X 12:19, January 12, 2013 (UTC)

Oh well... I am happy that you found about that, then! Energy X 19:04, January 12, 2013 (UTC)

NoteEdit

I see you started to edit H3 creatures. Just to clarify, use the template - the ones on Heroes V creatures (lime Imp). Energy X 20:09, January 25, 2013 (UTC)

When the creature (like Gargoyle) is can't be recruited from Necropolis town yet belongs to Death faction, then it does belong to Necropolis, but then a note needs to be written that it can be only recruited from a dwelling outside the town, as it cannot be recruited from the town.

The exception are the Preserve creatures - a mention they can be recruited from Creature Portal is also needed. Energy X 20:55, January 25, 2013 (UTC)

TemplatesEdit

Hey NArve. I forgot to add the level (aka tier) and the faction to the template. Can you review the previous H4 creature articles and add that? Energy X 19:52, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

If you'd like to point me at the order you're going in, then I could work backwards and get the ones you plan on doing last while you work forwards. I don't mind helping out some. Jimcloud 06:17, January 31, 2013 (UTC)

Eh, I just decided to get done with all of the regular ones (I think? I don't think I missed any), since I don't know the tiers of the creatures in dwellings, I'll just leave the lot of them to you. Jimcloud 06:57, January 31, 2013 (UTC)

Heroes III Images Edit

Hey, I noticed that you're working on the Heroes III enemy pages. Since you're doing that, I figured it prudent to link you to the site I'm using to work on Heroes II enemy images now: The Spriters Resource. That link displays everything the site has on Heroes III, such as every creature portrait in the game and transparent spritesheets of every pose each monster makes. If you have an image program that can work with transparency, you can just crop them down to the idle pose and upload them wholesale, and even if you can't, you can upload images with plain white backgrounds. Some of them ask to be credited, and so I figure you can just link to the page in the description when you upload them and that should be okay. Good work, by the way :D Jimcloud 21:30, February 9, 2013 (UTC)

I was referring to the image's page, which currently has nothing on it whatsoever, but I will respect your decision. Jimcloud 17:37, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

TemplateEdit

Just so that you know, I updated the CreatureStats template a bit. One'll have to add new things, however - you can see it in Angel (H3) page. Energy X 19:52, February 11, 2013 (UTC)

NewsEdit

I finally made some work on the template. You won't have to add |image/icon size= all the time, only when the image is too stretched out. Energy X 13:56, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

JimcloudEdit

Hey, Jimcloud is running for admin. So, can you vote here? Energy X 17:26, February 16, 2013 (UTC)

Possible errorsEdit

No, on the activity it is a few edits because Jimcloud and me have deleted a lot of pages, so it kinnda affects the Wiki Activity, where only the edits (excluding these deletions) are shown, which are several of them.

As for categories, I have enabled this new feature - Category Exhibiton, where one will be able to view the most popular pages. For some reason, it does not work, so I'll go remove it. Energy X 21:06, February 25, 2013 (UTC)

ReplyEdit

Yes, I have not seen Death magic in other Heroes games I played. You can move the content to Death magic.

Talk pagesEdit

Hey, just so that you know, when changing the link from a talk page (just to reduce the amount of broken links) you should remove them. Energy X 15:29, April 7, 2013 (UTC)

SpotlightEdit

Hey, there was supposed to be a spotlight some weeks ago. Did you see it? I didn't. Energy X 17:42, April 9, 2013 (UTC)

No, I saw nothing.Narve (talk) 18:34, April 9, 2013 (UTC)

H4 heroesEdit

I see you have started updating the Heroes IV heroes articles. Just so that you know, in future, the layout should be like this. Energy X 19:10, April 10, 2013 (UTC)

CategoriesEdit

Yes, I know. The new categories don't need so much writing to categorize a page, and the Heroes V: is just redundant. Energy X 20:14, April 13, 2013 (UTC)

About infoboxesEdit

Well, I have added the 175px rezolution, so that should be good to add to other H4 character infoboxes. You can see here. Energy X 09:58, April 19, 2013 (UTC)

Adminship Edit

Have you considered running for admin? You do really good work, and I think you'd be able to do even more with the admin tools. I know I would support you, should you choose to run for admin. Just wanted to say that. Jimcloud 13:05, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

SpanishEdit

Hey, do you know how to speak Spanish? I ask because we have a new wiki - same content, only in Spanish language. Energy X 18:59, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

No, not at all. Narve (talk) 19:01, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

VoteEdit

Hey, can you please put your votes here? Energy X 21:48, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

ReplyEdit

Wow, is it that time? Certainly you can deploy the template, it will be changed later. And yeah, you need to create those subcategories.

Anyway, have you Heroes I/II/III? I ask because your skills can be used to create new Heroes I/II/III heroes pages? Also, what about the images of Heroes that appeared in Heroes III and Heroes IV? Energy X 19:38, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

There is a parameter you could add. It is |image2 = and you can add only one image. Other images will have to be sent to a gallery, or at least add it in text via [[File:XYZ|right|thumb]]. When you make one such page, please let me know so I can revise it. Energy X 20:41, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

And one last thing - you have time 'til tomorrow to throw your vote in the forum I gave you link to. Energy X 20:42, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

There is a way. You could download this program and pressing a key you will be able to get that image. This is how I made some of the CoH images. But I think we have some of the images in our database. Unless the images you would make have a better resolution...? Energy X 12:03, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

LayoutEdit

Just so that you know, here is the basic layout of the scenario article. The only thing you could only change is Information headline to Walkthrough instead, as I plan to change it on the other articles as well. Energy X 09:56, May 2, 2013 (UTC)

CampaignEdit

There should be seperate pages, as seen here, it also displays the characters in the campaign. And if it is the last, that fact should be noted, too. Energy X 10:44, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

ReplyEdit

Ah, I am sure that many cities in Heroes of Might and Magic have little (or no) importance, though exceptions exist. I am going to delete the template. Energy X 10:11, May 12, 2013 (UTC)

Upload Multiple Files Edit

Special:MultipleUpload. Figured this might help you out, considering all of the crazy uploading you're doing. Good work, by the way. Jimcloud 20:11, May 12, 2013 (UTC)

ReplyEdit

You can make the single scenarios pages, but naturally, only the predefined ones - the ones that are only in the game files, but no fan made. Energy X 12:36, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

RollyEdit

I have seen your edit on this file page. Just to inform you, that was a sprite, while this is a portrait. Energy X 10:11, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

EditEdit

Heh, you beat me to it, you just made the 3000th article. Nice. Energy X 12:51, June 4, 2013 (UTC)

Skills iconsEdit

Hey, it would be good to have the icon images separate, as they would need to be put for the heroes' starting abilities. Energy X 18:43, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Fair enough, I'll start uploading those.Narve (talk) 21:39, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

SpellsEdit

Hm, I think it would be better to have the spells under one page, like Air magic (H3)/Spells.

Sounds good. I'll get started on that later. If we decide to do that, you'll have to delete the "Heroes III spells" and "Heroes III air magic spells" categories I created, but maybe not quite yet. Narve (talk) 19:54, June 16, 2013 (UTC)

MapsEdit

I was wondering for some time, how did you get the Heroes IV maps (or at least, the expansions of Heroes IV)? Energy X 21:04, June 26, 2013 (UTC)

There's a cheat code for revealing the map (nwcPrometheus). I use the code, screenshot, then edit to just include the mini-map. It should work on Heroes III too, but I don't think there's a Heroes V or VI map cheat.Narve (talk) 04:31, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
There is a way, but some code needs to be inserted in some file for cheats to work, but that's all complicated. Does this work on older games? Energy X 10:56, June 28, 2013 (UTC)
According to google, the Heroes I and II cheat is 101495 (press the numbers on numpad). Can't test it right now, and anyway, I had trouble taking screenshots in those games. Oh, and I should clarify: nwcPrometheus only works in Heroes IV. The Heroes III code is nwcwhatisthematrix (assuming Shadow of Death is installed. In Heroes III, code depends on installed expansion packs).
And editing Heroes V for cheats isn't complicated, I've done it plenty of times. I just didn't know there was a display map cheat.Narve (talk) 11:25, June 28, 2013 (UTC)

MapsEdit

Hey, sorry for the late reply, was in the hospital last days. Yes, I never knew how to show the whole map, so you go ahead. You should also look for the names of cities and any additional heroes that appear as well. Energy X 11:39, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

ImagesEdit

Since you are the one uploading so many images, I have to ask of you to start giving licenses and categorise them. It is not hard, when uploading the image press more options, write in caption the category (depending on the image) and choose the license.

Since you are focusing on Heroes IV scenarios, the license should be Fair use and the category should be [[Category:Heroes IV <???> images]] and [[Category:Heroes IV <???> maps]], where <???> is the name of the campaign. It is important that you do that, for now the images that you currently upload. Energy X 21:07, July 27, 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I'll start doing that.Narve (talk) 21:22, July 27, 2013 (UTC)

Read moreEdit

Hey, I want to ask you something. Do you see at the bottom of any article the "Read more" section? I don't see it, do you? Energy X 22:28, July 29, 2013 (UTC)

No, I don't see it either.Narve (talk) 05:19, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

QuestionsEdit

The Wikia staff decided to let us pick ten questions about Might and Magic X and Heroes Online. It would be good if you put an input here. Energy X 22:41, August 8, 2013 (UTC)

BackgroundEdit

Do you think the current background image is better than the previous one? Energy X 14:23, August 21, 2013 (UTC)

StuffEdit

The patches should belong on one page, unless they are major that correct many glitches (even add a bit of content).

About the periods, I don't think they need to be there. Isn't that incorrect by grammar? Energy X 12:40, February 2, 2014 (UTC)

ScenariosEdit

I don't think you need to concern yourself much with the Heroes IV scenarios, maybe just adding maps, although it is appreciated.

Well, I guess it is time you had an admin request, what do you think? Energy X 23:34, February 14, 2014 (UTC)

All right, do you know how to set your adminship request? Energy X 20:11, February 15, 2014 (UTC)
Make a forum, put {{CoD}} on the top, your reasons and contributions why should you become an admin, then ==Vote== and {{vote|7|~~~~~}} under it. Energy X 21:17, February 15, 2014 (UTC)

AdminshipEdit

Well, although one user voted, I am confident you'll be better with using adminship tools. Congratulations. Energy X 23:47, February 24, 2014 (UTC)

Ability imagesEdit

Hey, do you think you can get the ability images without the brown background? Energy X 22:24, March 14, 2014 (UTC)

ScreenshotsEdit

Hey, I tried to take screenshots from Heroes IV (even by using a program), but I get nothing. How do you do it, actually? Energy X 15:34, June 30, 2014 (UTC)

PrintScreen, then paste into paint. Nothing more complicated than that.Narve (talk) 17:53, June 30, 2014 (UTC)

When images are lacking Edit

I've noticed that we do not seem to have a "Needs Image" template/category. I was thinking one might be useful so we know what we still need to add graphic images for. What do you think? — Somarinoa (talk) 08:04, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Sure, that sounds good. I've seen this done on other wikis, and it could be useful here too. Narve (talk) 08:29, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
Sweet, I'll see if I can't come up with a decent enough template appearance for us. — Somarinoa (talk) 03:21, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hey man, sorry to bother you but it seems that something is wrong with the Wikia engine. When I upload some photos of the same format, they are not displayed correctly like the files don't exist, but the database says that the files do exist and doesn't let me reupload the pictures. At the same time, other pictures I uploaded are displayed fine.

The edited page was:

http://mightandmagic.wikia.com/wiki/Astra

Orzie (talk) 05:22, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

Well, just wanted the page to have a little more volume (not so many H1 and H2 heroes have a nice background story). I won't post small icons then. I am just a pixel artist working in H2 style, so these pictures have a lot of differences and interesting spots to me, but you are right that they don't bear much information for everyone else :)

Orzie (talk) 16:27, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

Spelling Edit

Thanks for having corrected the misspellings on List of adventure map structures in Heroes VI page. Unfortunately, my english is not rather good for the normal sentence forming. --Generalbj (talk) 06:38, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

No problem.Narve (talk) 06:51, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

CodeEdit

Oh, I just saw that you got the Platinum badge for not missing a day. Congratulations, I should show such dedication as well.

Anyway, I must ask, how do yo show the map in full, without shades? There must be a way to open the cheats and enter the codes, right? Energy X 20:06, November 2, 2014 (UTC)

Ah, good, thanks. As for the order, it ended in H4, as far as I know. Energy X 20:55, November 2, 2014 (UTC)

Oh, one more question. How do you disable the cursor on the map? That is, when looking at the map, there is the pink rectangle. Energy X 15:21, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

I see. Well, I think I might be able to do that. Energy X 16:08, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

EditsEdit

Just reminding you of these changes. Also, it'd be nice if the towns were listed (if they have random names, just list how many there are). Energy X 13:49, November 8, 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps, though I'd prefer to have it as a separate section. Energy X 16:10, November 8, 2014 (UTC)

Higher Race Categories? Edit

Hey Narve, what might be your opinion on creating Race categories for some of the most recurring species seen in the games? For instance, putting all Orcs into an "Orcs" category, that would include all their different game iterations, all of the Orc characters that appear, structures or tech, locations, lore, et cetera? I know we have a primary Orc (or similar race) disambiguation page, but that only lists their appearances as enemies or units in games, none of their people or places or things. Obviously, Orcs are only an example here, you could have Dwarves, Elves, Goblins, whatever creatures appear often enough to warrant one. Just feels like all of each race's pages could benefit as a whole being tied together like that, even though they don't necessarily fit together canonically. Opinions? -- Somarinoa (talk) 12:38, January 22, 2015 (UTC)

I don't really see the point of such a category. We have the "Orc (Ashan)" and such pages, and could create other pages for the races that lack them (which is most of them). I don't see the value of placing characters in categories depending on their race when their race has no impact on gameplay (so it could probably work in the Might and Magic games, where race matters). But I'm not really opposed to it if you think it's a good idea. Try asking EnergyX, hear his opinion on it.Narve (talk) 18:32, January 22, 2015 (UTC)

An anonymous user Edit

In all honesty, 100.37.229.182 seems to be making stuff up in his edits as he goes, repeatedly filling articles with false, non-canon information.

I'm not exactly sure how to deal with that, especially considering I'm in no position to revert his H6 edits, not having played that game enough myself... - Sligneris (talk) 09:12, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

I agree. Every edit of theirs I've been able to look up has been made-up information. And if every bit of info we've been able to check is wrong, I think it's okay to assume that the stuff we can't check is wrong as well. I've left a couple comments on their talk page asking them to cite their info, but if they add something again, I'm blocking. And I'm reverting their edits unless I am sure it's correct - they've made enough of a mess.Narve (talk) 09:19, February 4, 2015 (UTC)
I've now removed the info that I couldn't verify. Looking at it, it's somewhat possible that I've removed good info with the bad, but given that we're dealing with someone that inserts a lot of nonsense, I'm taking a firm approach until they start providing some sources for the claims.Narve (talk) 09:46, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

It had its chances. If the anon did not heed warnings or even made an reply, feel free to block it. Energy X 14:54, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

I have the feeling that the user is no longer anonoymous. Maybe it's another person, but really, the situation is all the same. - Sligneris (talk) 18:49, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

I'm 99% certain it's the same person, yes - I've been for a few days, that user's been here before. But there's a tiny, tiny part of me that doubts it, so I haven't blocked them yet - but this is their absolute final warning. A single edit like that again, and I'm blocking them. I have better things to do with my time than researching whether their edits are real or fanfiction - like finishing the MM8 skill pages.Narve (talk) 18:54, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

Clash of Heroes characters Edit

As of late, its seems that Category:Clash of Heroes characters is overwhelmed by one-off, insignificant characters. Personally, I think we should put them in groups and merge into 5 main groups, all of which would have 1 article - they would be grouped either by the campaign they appeared in, or by their faction.

The problem is, for such insignificant characters, they still have a lot of info, for example their gameplay information, like their units - do you think we could come up with a system that would be able to contain a small picture, a short descripition, their units and possibly other info? We could also try making a separate article for puzzle-givers... - Sligneris (talk) 16:50, February 6, 2015 (UTC)

It would definitely be possible to combine several characters into a single article, but I'm not so sure it's a good idea. There really isn't anything worth deleting from the articles. But I definitely think they should be placed into categories. What about splitting the minor characters category into "Clash of Heroes Sylvan minor characters" category and so on? You'd split the hundred minor characters into about twenty per campaign, a more manageable amount. And maybe a puzzlegiver category, so a few characters would have two categories.
But if you think combining the articles is a better solution, we could just try creating something like that. Copying the information, but leaving the character pages as they are. If it works, and we're satisfied with the result, we delete some of the character pages, and if not, we delete the combination page. But still, I'd prefer to just change the categories instead.Narve (talk) 17:14, February 6, 2015 (UTC)

CoH portraits Edit

Given that the character portraits for CoH are mostly all character sprites wouldn't it be best to keep the all in .png format, with transparency intact? - Sligneris (talk) 16:40, February 10, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, that sounds like a good idea.Narve (talk) 16:47, February 10, 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I'll reupload these which are now in .jpg. - Sligneris (talk) 17:55, February 10, 2015 (UTC)

Veyer's H5 biographyEdit

Actually, it's pretty much safe to say that Veyer in H5 doesn't have a biography at all - it is but a copy of Nymus's biography, with a name swapped out - it doesn't even reflect Veyer's specialization, like Nymus's does. - Sligneris (talk) 17:55, February 10, 2015 (UTC)

Check Veyer's background in the In search for power scenario.Narve (talk) 18:20, February 10, 2015 (UTC)
Well, I mostly meant whether this biography applies to Veyer in-universe, rather than technicalities. - Sligneris (talk) 18:32, February 10, 2015 (UTC)
Good question, but I'm not sure we should remove the info from the page for that reason. Maybe make a note on his page that it's possibly non-canon, but if it's in the game, we should include it. Except bios that don't include the character's name at all, of course - Veyer's bio at least uses his name, even if every other part is taken from another bio.Narve (talk) 18:53, February 10, 2015 (UTC)

Image moves Edit

I'd like to request a move of two images:

File:Syisai.jpg to File:Sylsai.jpg

MabrasDuel.png to File:MarbasDuel.png - Sligneris (talk) 21:37, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

I've taken care of it now. I removed the first two links to avoid leaving dead links in the wiki.Narve (talk) 05:49, February 24, 2015 (UTC)

Article comments Edit

Could you change background of comment boxes on articles to a color different than blue? Mayba light grey of something?

Current background makes links invisible. - Sligneris (talk) 19:16, February 24, 2015 (UTC)

I agree, but I don't actually have any power over that. Talk to EnergyX.Narve (talk) 21:16, February 24, 2015 (UTC)
Well, it is just the color should match with the background colors. And, well, I don't have much experience in coding, so I allow you to do it instead. Energy X 12:27, February 25, 2015 (UTC)
So how do you change the comment color?Narve (talk) 19:53, February 25, 2015 (UTC)

Families Edit

I noticed that "relatives" section for Griffins of Heroes VI and Unicorns of Heroes V is kinda large-ish - a bit too much so.

I wonder how we should handle that. - Sligneris (talk) 20:00, March 6, 2015 (UTC)

I'm not entirely sure that they're TOO large, but if they are, we could limit it to closer family - only children, parents, and siblings, with no cousins, uncles, aunts, nieces, or nephews. But like I said, I'm not sure anything needs to be done, so maybe we should get more opinions.Narve (talk) 20:16, March 6, 2015 (UTC)
I have an idea - how about we add sections like "Close relatives" and "Distant relatives" to the infobox? For most articles these would be unused, but for these large families, we could move all the uncles and cousins to "Distant relatives". - Sligneris (talk) 11:48, March 8, 2015 (UTC)
That sounds like a good idea. Maybe just leave it at "Relatives" and "Distant relatives" or something - it looks better if there is nothing in the distant relatives" section, but still works if there are distant relatives.Narve (talk) 12:18, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

VoteEdit

Hey, I'd appreciate if you could vote on this admin request. Energy X 19:25, March 7, 2015 (UTC)

Black font Edit

Why is the font of article comments black now...? It's by far harder to read, especially, when it merges with the black gradient on the comment's bottom. - Sligneris (talk) 11:10, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

No idea. I'll ask EnergyX about it.Narve (talk) 11:23, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

CommentsEdit

Ah, thanks for the vote. Anyway, I am having trouble with the coding, so help in it would be appreciated. Here is what is changed. Energy X 11:47, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, it looks good. Still, the header that shows how many comments are present is black. Do you think you could fix that? Energy X 15:16, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

Clash of Heroes locations Edit

Actually, I'll be able to rip full-sized images of these locations, exactly the way you walk on them in the game, straight from the files. Would you like me to take care of that? - Sligneris (talk) 20:34, March 17, 2015 (UTC)

That sounds interesting. Try it out, and we'll see how it looks.Narve (talk) 21:30, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
I tried it out here, but it seems the file is somewhat too large - perhaps reducing it to 50% of its size will work better? - Sligneris (talk) 22:53, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, it might be too large right now.Narve (talk) 06:52, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I uploaded the maps - I tried to make it look like 'overview' of a kind, but without making it too small - 60% works pretty well. Files are still heavy, but I think resolution-wise, they're alright, aren't they? - Sligneris (talk) 22:46, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
It looks good. You can add it to the page.Narve (talk) 05:53, March 19, 2015 (UTC)

CoHEdit

If you are playing CoH from anew, there is one piece of content I'd like you to watch out. It is about Wraith (CoH) when recruited (toughness and charge amount in infobox lacks stats). Energy X 23:05, March 17, 2015 (UTC)

Sure, I'll make a note of that.Narve (talk) 06:52, March 18, 2015 (UTC)

ReplyEdit

Maybe you are right, but I feel these are just all additional scripts that may slightly slow the page down. Well, I will stop removing them, though I prefer to do that. Energy X 14:51, March 24, 2015 (UTC)

CoH location Edit

I noticed that '(location)' in two of Clash of Heroes articles, and I wonder - shouldn't location be a primary article for its name? For example, when I hear "Screaming Hag Inn", I think of the inn itself, not of the quest related to it.

Also, some background section would be fitting too - for example, Char-Hasa originally belonged to a Pit Fiend, did it not?

There's been disagreement whether anything deserves to be the "primary article" in cases like this - and EnergyX has begun moving pages like "Mount Nebyrzias" to "Mount Nebyrzias (quest)", which takes care of that problem.
And you're correct, Char-Hasa belonged to the pit fiend Koroth, who became rich from plundering during the fourth bloodmoon. I wasn't sure where to place that information, but I'll add it to the page.Narve (talk) 18:46, April 4, 2015 (UTC)

IconsEdit

Ah, sorry about that, when changing these names of files and articles I think of H7 and accidentally make a mistake. It will be fixed, though. Energy X 09:39, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

Roland Edit

Wouldn't in this context ' | ' fit better than ' / '? It's a minor detail, admittedly, but I thought it would be better to make a disctinction between two different classes he uses in the game, rather than present him as a Knight-slash-Wizard. - Sligneris (talk) 11:23, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, when you put it like that, that makes sense. I'll change it back.Narve (talk) 11:35, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

Dynasties Edit

Now that I think of it, won't decribing the rise of the Falcons be kinda redundand with the article for the Holy Falcon Empire? It won't feel right to have two different articles basically retell the same events. Characters are excused, as they tell the same story from different perspectives, but there's no justification here.

How should we solve this, before I start writing the full article? - Sligneris (talk) 21:57, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

I'm not entirely sure. Maybe we should just leave the article more or less as it is? I don't see a reason to just repeat information. We can have a link saying "for the history of the Falcons, see Holy Falcon Empire" - something like that.Narve (talk) 06:35, April 6, 2015 (UTC)
Nah, I'd actually prefer to have more information... There are many aspects of that Falcons that aren't related to the Empire itself, like the prophecy. I'll see what I can do with that. - Sligneris (talk) 10:57, April 6, 2015 (UTC)

Nicolai Ironfist Edit

I earlier brought up the subject of Nicolai's infobox picture, back in his article's comment section. Do you think it would it be best to keep his official picture, when he was still a child, or would his artwork from an unofficial - but still - game project be better? - Sligneris (talk) 10:23, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

I've answered in the comments now.Narve (talk) 16:03, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

Heroes 3 icons Edit

Actually, why reduce the sizes of Heroes 3 portraits? Don't HD versions fill the infoboxes well in full size...? - Sligneris (talk) 14:48, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

They're too large, making them far too intrusive on the page. Around 150 pixels, they're large enough to see details, but don't push the text away as much.Narve (talk) 16:03, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

They are...? I don't see it. Still, if they must be reduced, I believe 200px would be a better choice... - Sligneris (talk) 16:19, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

200px might work, yes. By the way, are you getting the new icons from the Heroes III HD release? I'm just wondering why you cut Drakon's icon in half.Narve (talk) 16:43, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

Yup, they are taken from Heroes III HD. I received them from a person on HC - there are three sheets and I simply cut the images out of them.

Unfortunately there was no full version of Drakon's portrait, strangely enough - there was only that cut-in version that you usually see on the adventure screen. - Sligneris (talk) 16:57, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

ProblemEdit

Hey, can you check whether Alaric appears in Wulfstan's Defiance campaign? Energy X 18:33, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

Ancient universe characters Edit

Enroth, Varn, Xeen... Why must there be so many identically named characters on all of them. Even without this, moving and merging all the articles is going to be painful, since for whatever reasons native worlds of all these characters are listed as 'Ashan'... - Sligneris (talk) 15:20, April 8, 2015 (UTC)

Still, thank you for pointing out my mistake. - Sligneris (talk) 15:45, April 8, 2015 (UTC)
No problem. What really annoys me is the reuse of Xeen characters as H1 and H2 heroes, where they not only reused names, but icons as well. So two characters from different time periods and planets just happen to share not only name, but also appearance. Trying to keep them all apart is a bit of a headache.Narve (talk) 16:06, April 8, 2015 (UTC)

Names of Infobox images Edit

Much like names of in-game icons of Heroes characters usually follow 'Hero[name][game].png' format and full artwork usually goes with '[name] [game].jpg', I've been trying to come up with a template for infobox images, specifically cut from full artwork.

Most recent I used would be '[name]-Img.jpg', but I wonder if you have any other ideas? - Sligneris (talk) 14:07, April 11, 2015 (UTC)
