Hi! I'm Héctor, one of the Gaming Community Managers on Fandom. I've seen you're the last active admin there. Although you're not currently active, I wanted to make you aware about the next improvements I want to implement here in the wiki.
The community name is called just Oddworld. I'm moving it to Oddworld Wiki, because it's causing some problems with encyclopedic pages and community pages.
The wiki has one remaining non-portable infobox, template:species, what I'm converting now to fit with the rest.
I'll check the wiki navigation to see if it can be improved.
I'm creating a Mobile Main Page for the wiki.
Let me know if do you have any doubt about this. Thanks!
Hello there! I was going to ask if it's possible for the Gex wiki to affliate with the Oddworld wiki? I have been planning to get his wiki off the ground for months now. I was wondering it there was any specific requirements to met to be an affilate? I'm currently the admin for the Gex wiki in case if you're wondering.
I've been watching the Oddworld wiki for years now and commend a lot of the work which has been done for this place. I would be grateful, if the opporunity was possible in any way.
Here's the link to the wiki, if you're interested. I'm planning to improve everything over time: Gex wiki main page
I will look forward to your response. Thank you for your time.
Oh it's just mainly just sharing the links to each of our wikis on the main page (platformer games) part of the main page, that's really it tbh. While, it's a bit of weird and probably not the strongest reasoning. I just thought, why not? Since, I always like the respected the wiki and it's content. Again, sorry it's not the strongest reason. Just wondering if it was possible.
Ah, I see. Well, we do have the 'Platformer Games' template at the bottom of the main page and I see you already added the Gex wiki to the list of possible additions, so when it's accepted it will show up there (not sure what the process is for getting added though, from what I can tell you can just edit the template?). That is the only place where we put links to other places though.
Hi Tiger, sorry to bother you but should we have our own infoboxes for buisnesses of the various industrial prducts being made for them? I was thinking of having an infobox dedicated to buisnesses such as Magog Motors..just an idea, thank you for your time!
For now you can just use the 'location' infobox for the business pages, as they already include much of the relevant info and I can add more fields to it if you need them. See RuptureFarms or SoulStorm Brewery as examples. Their infoboxes treat the location basically as a 'business', including the owners, leaders, etc.
Could I remake the Professor Dimble page? I found cannotically correct sources; enough to remake the page. All I request is your permission if that is alright with you. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Hi TigerXtrm! I hate to be a bother but I would like to expand the New Yolk City page; I was wondering how to do it. Should I make a history section dedicated to the black market, corruption in the townsfolk, where it exactly is and what happened when the outlaws came into the town? I did the minion outlaw page and expanded the information past the cannon; it is something that I will never do again. I was just looking for some advice. Thank you for your time and consideration!
If you can find information on the city history that is canonically accurate then you are free to add it to the article in a history section, and reference it. But any sort of fan theory or made up history should be avoided, please stick to the facts.
You may not know, but the official Gaming Footers were recently retired by Fandom staff. As such, the current footers are outdated and not going to be updated by Staff anymore. Me and a few other users are looking for alternatives to replace them, and I'm currently tending to the Platformer Games Footer. Would it be possible for you to replace the current footer on the main page with this one?
Hey, don't know if you see this, but someone made an edit on the FeeCo Depot (level) that I had written ages ago and turned it into something weird looking (don't know a lot about Wikias styles). Could you possibly undo it? I, for instance have trouble reading the page as it is and I think the previous way was a bit easier to read to newcomers.
Can't put the link on cause I am on the phone atm
Hey! So I managed to get my hands on the promotional stuff of Soulstorm. I was thinking of posting them on the wiki as well, but should I just put them in the gallery? Like the new Brewery picture, putting it in the gallery or the infobox?
edit: btw, the pictures shown at EGX, that is what I am talking about. :P
As a general rule of thumb, let's not replace any of the infoboxes until the game is actually released. It's still kind of unclear exactly what parts of the story/locations/characters are getting retconned and in what degree. Changing things around now would become confusing and messy. A lot of articles will need updating and adding to after the game's release, so lets not get ahead of ourselves. Depending on how far these retcons go I may write up a policy for dealing with it in overlapping articles.
As for the artwork we got, it's fine to add them to their respective galleries, including the location pages and character pages. Just not the infoboxes yet.
Hey. So I posted the images. You can go checkem out if you want. Wanted to ask for a favor. Can you fix the Necrum and Alf image so that it has a caption like the others? I can't figure out how to do it xD
In addition to those images, I also have a few more that are new ones, so there are no pages to add them. I will keep them for future use. If you want them too, just say and I can send them somehow.
I didn't contribute much details on this wikia so far, but I'm a Oddworld-fan and I'm looking for information about the game on this wikia to add them in a translated way to the german-language wikia.
on this community I recently saw a page named "Dear Alf", its content don't seem to be oddworld-related. I thought letting you know, because in the administrator-section you and another user was named, but the latest contribution was made by you, so I thought messaging you on your wall and I hope that it's okay?
thanks for replying so far, my first language is german, so maybe my english isn't perfect (but I hope, that my text is still able to understand?)
