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To address the problem of the character pages being out of date, the mod team is currently working on a list of pages that need to be updated.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

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

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.

any urealms group wanting another role player for a game i have not been able to find one so far.

Mayonnaisinator (Talkcontribs)

This isn't the best place to ask about this sort of stuff. There isn't really a proper place to discuss fan campaigns but in the near future there will be forums where you can find groups and other players.

Spoiler alert, The ui(user interface) that season 3 is going to use i find this as a great thing with this in mind id love for pupet pals to get tweaking since i know there drawn animaton turned into flash i see alot of twitching or overlaping/ frames missing.

But with other notes i have some maps preplained once the mods out for tabletop ill edit it into board if anyone wants to see it and the keys im going to be using on my dummy maps then feel free to contact me

Anyway great job URL team and rob for the content,

Twisted

Mayonnaisinator (Talkcontribs)

This isn't the best place to show your support for Rob and the team, or to discuss ideas. Currently, the best place is on the buffalo wizards sub reddit, but in the future there will be forums where you can share your maps etc.

The Did You Know is broken for me. It only shows bullet points for every other fact.

Astora (Talkcontribs)

Plus there's a space in the Helping Out subsection that isn't needed. Before the period on the second bullet point.

Mayonnaisinator (Talkcontribs)

I've fixed the gap before the period, but I'm not too sure how we would fix the Did You Know. Has it always been broken? Is this on mobile or PC?

Astora (Talkcontribs)

I don't know what happened, it just magically fixed for me. It must have been on my end then, my bad.

I want to play the game with my friends irl but i'm not insane enough to download all of them one by one, plus there's the fact that i can't seem to find the back covers of most of them.

Can someone help me on this or should i go the painful route

Shovelkills (Talkcontribs)

You should try to see if anyone has them on the reddit as this is not the best place to ask. The way I play with my friends is just download the cards you need.

IronClark (Talkcontribs)

Rob is working on a release for a tabletop mod! So, the two routes you have is the painful route, or simply wait for that mod to be pushed.

Shovelkills (Talkcontribs)

Also you could wait for the tabletop mod if you have tabletop on steam

Where do I find the info regarding mobs in urealms? I'm trying to make tiles for tabletop.

It should be noted that pages consists of only physical entities, and not elementals, and things of that sort, so keep that in mind when looking at that page.
