Hey guys, Emperor here! So for the past few days, the moderators on the Wiki have been making a Discord for all you contributors on the Wiki to use! The Old Gods, and Scholars alike need a place where we can communicate as a team on making edits, which is why we made the discord for all of you guys! The Link is right over on the sidebar over there!

The show is great and i love it keep doing what your doing i'm always excited for the next campaign and wish i just found the show so i can watch the content all over again (which i've mostly done anyways)

CoconutM1lk (Talkcontribs)

This sorta stuff is better suited for the forums, the wiki is more for official stuff and keeping it updated

Proliks (Talkcontribs)

where do we find the imiges that rob uses for his tiles

Mayonnaisinator (Talkcontribs)

Which ones are you talking about? Do you mean the status effects? If so, Rob has a tile example here. If you're asking about the pictures on the tiles we don't have an easy way of getting those unless their puppet appears on screen, sorry.

None of them seem to actually bring up a card, just blank results. http://live.urealms.com/cards#legendary-0035-coe That's supposed to be the link to Grand Stonescaler, the first one I had an issue with. Sorry if this is the wrong place for this

Emperor Emorious1 (Talkcontribs)

This is because most of the Season 2 legendary cards, and the cards from the Card Quests weren't updated to Season 3, and were not put onto the site yet. so when you click the link, it just goes to the card viewer!

Creating an article about the War against the Ageless?

PoweradeCookie (Talkcontribs)

I was wondering if we should create an article about this, depicting all of the battles, commanders, and casualties in the war. Since this war will obviously become a bigger topic throughout the season, I think we should start working on it so new-comers can read the article without having to watch a lot of campaigns. Just a thought.

He Is Man (Talkcontribs)

Personally I think it sounds like a great idea.

Starnoxiar (Talkcontribs)

I think it's a great idea, but the title should make it explicit that this is not the first war against the ageless since some characters refer to previous wars.

CoconutM1lk (Talkcontribs)

I'd say hold off just cos we don't have enough information

PoweradeCookie (Talkcontribs)

Well, we could at least depict the combatants, commanders, people who have died, and describe all of the battles that have happened so far (Dundinborough, Waldon, On Virgo's Ship, and Kaddoral).

CoconutM1lk (Talkcontribs)

Maybe put it on the Lore page, it covers stuff like that.

Hey, I'm fairly new so I don't know if there is a discord server for the wiki already. The moderators might have one to talk between them, but I feel that the wiki would advance a lot faster if we got a place where we could talk.

For example I encounter themes that I don't feel like I'm qualified to fix or expand on, but some other people might be able to. However, without a place to communicate with multiple people at the same time, informing other possible contributors about the lack of information on an specific page can be difficult, and coordinating huge changes (as new campains) is no laughing task.

This is why I've made a discord server where people are free to join and share which pages are in need of help over in the channel #wiki-talk. I do not intend to use the wiki as a form of promotion and I would understand if this topic gets shut down or even deleted. I just feel like direct communication between contributors can greatly improve our efficiency.

Of course, any wiki moderator would get the moderator role inmediately if they choose so. Invite link - https://discord.gg/pWKvg9e

Hey Y'all, Feedback here. New wikiboi. I was perusing the wiki for grammar edits and just noticed a few things we might want to keep an eye on (or already are) for the new season:

Due to the changes to how attributes and cornerstones work, there's gonna have to be a lot of going between the character page and the wiki to fix this on older characters.

In addition, because of this a lot of the older links to cards don't work (eg on gwyneth's page, for example, clicking her attributes will lead to nothing because the cards are now being indexed differently) because of this, is it possible to have some sort of redirect system where simply putting cardname will lead to "www.urealms.com/cards#cardname"?

For companions, races, etc, would we want to replace the main picture with the cards themselves, or have some sort of tabbing system to switch between card versions and different image versions? (Speaking of which it'd probably be a good idea to ask some of the artists or Rob for the new images standalone when/if they ever have down time.

When the season finally does kick off, and the cards are released, it would probably be a good idea to have a gameplay subsection since people are gonna finally be playing with the cards and even though there are rules cards, players are certainly going to have questions about how to play/rules technicalities/advice on how to start a campaign. Some sort of basic campaign setup and character creation procedure descriptions would be required, and advice for how to use tabletop for URealms and the rules for combat would be necessary too.


That's about it. Sorry if you guys are already well aware of what's going on here. Gimme a holler if you need anything! Back to grammar naziing for me!

Hey, thanks a lot for taking the time to help us on the wiki!

To address the problem of the character pages being out of date, the mod team is currently working on a list of pages that need to be updated. We know that one of the major challenges of running a wiki of this size is consistency between pages and want to make sure that we do it right for the many seasons to come.

Next, in terms of linking cards, we do have a new system in place to link cards from the website. For example [{Treasure / Clockadile Oil}] [ { CARDNAME } ] (without spaces) links to the wizard card. We know it's hard to know all the tricks of the wiki so we're putting together a help page for new users to look at when getting used to the formatting.

Finally, addressing having a gameplay section, we have decided for now to not include any information on gameplay as for all intents and purposes the wiki is devoted to lore and cataloging the history of Urealms. All of the info about the game itself will most likely live on the forums in a certain section. If you have any questions at all let me know! We're always looking for great people like yourself to help us out.

I'd also add that we do want to add all of the updated art from Sixelona and Irishxlily to the Character, Class, Race and Companion pages, but we just haven't been given a dump of the art yet, but we will work on that as soon as Rob gives us the go ahead.

For the moment, focus on just fixing grammar, spelling and structure of old pages, and if you are able to, it would help greatly if people could help write up the summaries of what happened in each campaign for each character. For characters in the same campaign this could just be the same summary with some minor differences to save time, so you don't have to rewrite what is basically the same thing.

Don't worry about updating character inventories or any cards to the Season 3 format yet, since we'd rather wait for all of the character pages to be complete on the website, so that we know that Rob is finished updating them. The cards will just have to be updated over time, but that's something we can work on over the summer, as it isn't too big of a deal now since you can just search for the card on the website itself.

If you google a page of the wiki, for example gwenyth sunsword like this https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=urealms+live+gwenyth+sunsword&rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBGB699GB699&oq=urealms+live+gwenyth+sunsword&aqs=chrome..69i57.3987j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#q=urealms+live+gwyneth+sunsword It says Unforgotten realms wiki rather than URealms. (sorry for long link)

Mayonnaisinator (Talkcontribs)

We know of this issue (it's in other places too, like in the preview box for an edit) but unfortunately we don't have an easy way to fix this, as the wiki was originally registered as Unforgotten Realms Wiki when the show was still called that. I believe the only way to change this is for the server host to do it, and that would be Rob, but he's got other things to do atm.

CoconutM1lk (Talkcontribs)

Oh okay, that makes sense, just wanted to make sure that you knew about it

CoconutM1lk (Talkcontribs)

A link to the new website should be put under the news section

Reply to "New website under news"
CoconutM1lk (Talkcontribs)

I think it would be a good idea to have names under the players in the Main Cast and Secondary Cast sections and maybe change Secondary Cast to Guests

Mayonnaisinator (Talkcontribs)

We're planning to redo that whole section when season 3 launches, so we can use the new art, so there is little point changing it now when season 3 is so close.

CoconutM1lk (Talkcontribs)

Okay, where is the planning for that going on? I would love to help.

Mayonnaisinator (Talkcontribs)

I'm not too sure what the exact plans are, but I think IronClark had some plans to use Sixelona's new art of the players (you can see some of Deadbones' art in the new video) and put it on the main page instead of the old blue button things. If you have any ideas on how to improve the wiki, talk about it on the relevant talk page or if there isn't one just talk about it on the Main Page.

CoconutM1lk (Talkcontribs)

Awesome, that sounds like a great idea.
