Talk:Main Page

From Magickapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The information on this page is out of date and not correct anymore as of Aug. 2011. the game has been updated alot and most of the spells and some NPCs have been changed.

Informational Videos

Do you think it would be a good idea for me to upload a set of informational videos about the different types of spells, or is that too basic? --Frandude 10:16, 10 July 2011 (PDT)

Semi protect main page

As main pages are often targets for vandalism, I suggest you stop unregistered users editing it, at least someone has to make an account first that way. Revoran 10:18, 2 February 2011 (PST)

What pages should be added?

Can we source anything from the forums to build out a FAQ?

What other online documents can we use as sources?

Any news articles about Magicka?

Should we have a page listing all the bosses, their abilities and how to defeat them? A walkthrough? (-- Monztah 16:46, 27 January 2011 (PST))
I think we should build up to a complete walkthrough for every chapter (Article per). However it might take a while for people to get good strategies and find everything. AlexiStukov 21:17, 27 January 2011 (PST)
I think we should add a page with tasks for wikia users, like a to-do list. --Tiozinho 10:34, 30 January 2011 (PST) ice machine
We've got a to-do list at the Community Portal. --> Coccan.gif Arrow (Talk) -- Sandbox 16:08, 2 February 2011 (PST) P.S: I hate Wikia; if this wiki were on wikia I would not have joined.
I wholly agree Arrow. I joined cause it WASN'T Wikia. And Tio, this is a wiki. We're wiki users. Wikia is an awful wiki farm. That is all. – Smashman (talk) 16:15, 2 February 2011 (PST)
If this were a Nintendo game I MFA Degree would have suggested joining NIWA. They're also dedicated to fighting Wiki farms. --> Coccan.gif Arrow (Talk) -- Sandbox 17:33, 2 February 2011 (PST)
I agree, I used to be a sysop HammerWiki (Warhammer Online) and they joined wikia soon after I joined them, it went down hill from there. Not that they were that horrible but the ads and the meddling and the ... well you get the idea. I don't really admin there any more. Revoran 22:00, 2 February 2011 (PST)

I also agree, wikia is generic and unprofessional looking. I know this by experience.--Dethklok52Element lightning.png 22:05, 2 February 2011 (PST)

Questionable

On Changelog #2, it looks like the source has a typo. "Changelog Patch #26 Jan" [1]. Assuming this is actually Patch #2 Changelog.

Patches

Should we store the patch info in the magickapedia instead? The forum posts might be deleted. --Saucy 23:40, 29 January 2011 (PST)

That's probably a good idea. Should each changelog get its own page? Or should there just be a general changelogs page? — Toshu (talk) 03:10, 30 January 2011 (PST)
Very nice work on the patchnotes pages, looks good! --Saucy 21:30, 31 January 2011 (PST)

Hi, am I the only one thinking that it is a bit odd to have the banner linking to the Main page (So far it's only encountered on the main page, right)? --XKCD 05:24, 31 January 2011 (PST)

The alternative is that it links to File:banner.png. Where do you think it should link to? --Arrow = Talk = Sandbox 05:30, 31 January 2011 (PST)
You are right, I forgot that it is a link by default. Main page makes sense then! --XKCD 09:22, 31 January 2011 (PST)

Magickapedia Steam Group

What do you guys think of having a Magickapedia Steam Group? Maybe we could talk about the homepage and maybe play some Magicka? --Saucy 15:49, 2 February 2011 (PST)

I was just considering it. I'll make one now! – Smashman (talk) 16:01, 2 February 2011 (PST)
I guess you're admin then? =P --> Coccan.gif Arrow (Talk) -- Sandbox 16:06, 2 February 2011 (PST)
No idea, but it's done! Magickapedia Steam Group! Does anyone have a good image we could use? – Smashman (talk) 16:10, 2 February 2011 (PST)
I'm also not a great fan of the abbreviation. If anyone wants to think of a better one, be my guest. – Smashman (talk) 16:11, 2 February 2011 (PST)
I think we're too cool for abbreviations. =P --> Coccan.gif Arrow (Talk) -- Sandbox 16:42, 2 February 2011 (PST)

Monsters page vs. Enemy category

So are we going to be making individual monster pages, or a single page with all the mobs listed? I don't think there's enough info available on each mob to fill an entire page... --> Coccan.gif Arrow (Talk) -- Sandbox 16:05, 2 February 2011 (PST)

Page griefed

Is there any admin online to change the protected page back from a knife ad?

Linking from the main page

Recently, I have been making it my personal project to create list pages List of Staves (Magicka 2), List of Weapons (Magicka 2), and Magicks (Magicka 2). I have found other wikis to have list pages like this very helpful and informative, especially seeing as most of this information is not available anywhere online. I am suggesting that instead of linking to a category page after clicking on a link on the main page (e.g. clicking on "Weapons" under Magicka 2 takes you to the weapons category page), to link directly to the list page. Any thoughts? Pandatwin (talk) 02:27, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Additional Links on homepage

I would like to add a Magicks link on the homepage linking to the Magicks (Magicka 2) page along with differentiating weapons and staves for Magicka 2. In the equipment section on the main menu, these are differentiated and I think it would help users more easily find what they're looking for. Pandatwin (talk) 02:27, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
