Best Wiki Pages
« Topic Start: April 20, 2018, 05:20:21 PM »
Link or upvote the best BM wiki pages that you've written or come across! I am looking for styles, prose, images, formats, layouts, tutorials, and all the things that separate a good wiki from a GREAT one!

I used to put a lot of time on mine some years ago... Serpentis Family.
Now with the Skovgaard Family... and it's gone.
Serpentis again!

http://wiki.battlemaster.org/wiki/Dubhaine_Family

Perhaps not because it looks fancy or anything (although I must say I really like the drawn family tree), but because of the insane amount of data that is stored about all that the characters do.

It is being kept up to date by the player of the Dubhaine Family almost daily.

I say bravo.

I love the Templates on the Wiki. I have several crammed onto my main family page, http://wiki.battlemaster.org/wiki/Gildre_Family, the characters have the character box templates, and Jessica has the Infiltrator template.

If anyone knows of any pages with cool templates, I am always looking!

Cheers!

Thank you!

When I first started playing there was a lot of chatter in the tech community around the 'quantified life' and I thought it would be interesting to capture lots of raw data on the various Dubhaines. I'm still slightly annoyed I gave up on keeping their battle reports sometime in 2010 or 2011 but reformatting them for wiki markup was taking up too much time and other data like unit composition usually only gets updated when significant changes happen.

More recently Ciarghuala's personal journal has become the place to go for a running history of Luria Nova as I now capture all RPs she receives. It's fascinating being able to look back through the months and see how different characters have developed as the Hegemony's sought to rebuild.

Whilst I've considered writing a grand Tragedy of House Dubhaine several times work projects take up most of my non-BM time. Hopefully that will change now that Tom's started compiling a BM book.

I can see my day's going to be less productive than I'd anticipated :)

Player of Gabanus family has made it easier to copy battles to wiki, if you so happen to have Windows & Microsoft Office:

My page isn't as full or as pretty as those from above, but my character Ilya has a nice page, story and lots of RP. The Library is kind of cool and I'm happy with the genealogy tree (both on the wiki and the external link).

http://wiki.battlemaster.org/wiki/Bluelake_Family/Ilya

I like this page as well: http://wiki.battlemaster.org/wiki/Holy_Matrimony With special attention to McDowell's stories...

I like the way this newspaper links all issues in every single issue: http://wiki.battlemaster.org/wiki/Taselak_(SEI)/Tribune
And in general, all the newspapers... Though it's a bit hard to find most recent ones: http://wiki.battlemaster.org/wiki/Category:Newspapers and http://wiki.battlemaster.org/wiki/Category:Island_News Only one I know for sure is the Lurian Herald, still on its baby steps.
Today is Thank Wimpie for Being an Awesome Dev Day. Give Wimpie some gratitude for his constant bugfixing, pestering of admins to get things done, and general Wimpieness.

Quote
Lady Marion was one of the captured nobles, and when Judge Gregor of Westmoor realized that his prisoner was carrying 3000 gold on her hands, he did not hesitate to relieve her of her gold. This infuriated some people in the Council, and even more when Duke Erik appointed her as a lord of Tabost.

I miss the fact that I don't have a good memory... I pissed off so many people.
Now with the Skovgaard Family... and it's gone.

I love the font styles. How were you able to tell which fonts/colors were available? Is there a list somewhere?

Look it up online. It is relatively easy to find :D

For myself, I checked what others did and just copied their fonts XD

Thanks Zakky! That's just what I'll do. In fact, I've already begun to experiment, muahahaha.  8)


Here's an amalgamation of what I have thus far. I wish that there was an easier way to change font settings page-wide. I drew a bit from all of you and some I found on my own. Any tips or suggestions would be extremely welcome.
