So what you want me to tell is, when I play in German settings after a while Minor will change back to Minoris or immediately? Will mean in that case the Minoris isn't necessary anymore in English wiki. Im sure there are lot more of them, but I let them as they are.

Avatar for Lenni009

It should switch to "Minoris" as soon as you load up the game with the German language. You could test and report back

Avatar for NunkiII

I always thought that is just a name in the moment uf uploading. What will happen when I rename planet xy to Minoris. Will it change too. Just for my understanding

Avatar for Lenni009

I don't know that. You can also test this hehe.

Could need some help with Ugus Minoris

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Regarding Ugus Minoris. What help was it you needed? Is this a case where you went back to visit and the planet had was no longer called "Ugus Minoris"?

If so, then yes, I can work on that. Also - it looks like there is a pic on this page that you meant to upload that is missing.

Thanks!

Avatar for NunkiII

hey, both. I remember that planet when my game always crashed by visiting him the first time. No I came back and the name changed. I wonder myself and for the future (I think this should not be the only one), how to handle it in the documentation. And yes, I have had some problems with that picture and another one for the systemNav

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

I have created a separate page for the old "Minoris" planet. I've renamed the page to Minor, and made some adjustments to the page to show the current status. If you don't think you need the Minoris copy (and by Lenni's comment you may not), let me know and I can delete.

Avatar for NunkiII

For the statistics it will be better to delete the Minoris page, thanks.

Avatar for Lenni009

The name change is caused by different languages. German calls the "NAMEGEN_PLANET_ADORN_3" key "Minoris", English calls it "Minor". Same goes for "Majoris" and "Major" or "Primus" and "Prime". If you upload a planet with the default name it will localise to these values. Therefore it would make sense to keep the English names ("Minor", "Major", "Prime") in the English wiki, while putting the German equivalents in the German wiki.

Hi, you removed 3 pictures from 3 ARFL regions. The issue that those images were in Civilized space section, and they also serve as art and map - they have compass on them, showing region relational placement from the hold region - thing that can not be expressed visually via screenshots


Please restore those edits. Those pictures are not screenshots, they are compass maps with art, they are in Civ Space area (place where you, yourself, suggested to place all civ-specific art), and i would like to keep them as i think that they provide additional information for holders, ie ARFL, and have some artistic value

Avatar for AbstractBlackStork

As i said above - those are not screenshots. Those are compass maps with art - with a background made with combination of the screenshot, hieroglyph art and abstract background. It belongs to Civ space section of ARFL controlled region. there lot's of content, so please restore those images.

Civ Space is extension to the main page area and is only proper place to put some navigational reference like that compass. Having compases out of region pages does not make a sense

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

I will ask our full admin team to review and the final decision will be theirs. I will accept their decision, and I trust that you will as well.

Avatar for AbstractBlackStork

I remade this completely, turning it into more of a compass, less screenshot, and also putting it into ARFL convention table. Since it is ARFL region I see no reasons that it would be improper - Civs and NMS wiki should encourage creative content from contributors - adding more character, stylistics and cartography is big benefit and driver of interest of other, yet less involved players.

Avatar for Artifexity

Hello AbstractBlackStork, I admire your art and find your pages very creative. No matter how this discussion develops, you should know that. I also started very creatively here and over time I had to realize that certain rules and limitations of creativity can be very useful. With every decision we have to weigh up what is generally advantageous for the wiki and what is individually artistically possible. We have had very unfortunate experiences with collages in particular. I therefore hope that you will understand the restriction and that we will find a solution together that will satisfy everyone. We will review your new proposal accordingly.

Thanks. Happy to help and contribute.

Hello. I know I haven’t been very active for a while, but I’m back. Thanks for all the help with the IPRO! I might need you to add one image because I can’t edit galleries for some reason. Sorry to bother you, I’ll try one more time.

Avatar for Kaninchensuppe

Hello, this is probably the wron place for it, but I wuold rather not screw with the freigter Catalouge myself. I made a page for a freighter I found and it would be great if you could add it to the catalouge or point me in the right direction.

Thank you! https://nomanssky.fandom.com/wiki/DSV-9_Amishika

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Once a page is created, the freighter will automatically show up on the list. It may take a day or so, but it will show up. (I just checked and it's there now)

Avatar for AbstractBlackStork

Hi, i reverted your change for ARFL page due ARFL does have a properly maintained census page. We have at least 3 active players bases on capital planet. Please see Census - ARFL

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Yes, it does appear there is an ARFL census page, my bad. However, since there is no mention of it on your embassy page (or on any other wiki page), it is going to be hard to find!

Census information is generally noted in a standard section header on CivSpace embassy pages called "Members"; this section was missing from your embassy page. I have added it; you can add a reference and link to your Census page there.

Thanks!

Hi! I had a question on civilized space

My group, formerly the “Coalition of Free Systems”, recently underwent a name change to the “Galactic Trade Coalition”

Is there any way for us to rename the civilization?

Additionally, as we have kind of changed our motives, I don’t know if we would better apply as a business or a civilized space.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

In short, your name and purpose are both doing a big switch <g>

So as far as civ vs company. Ask yourself this question - are we in this to provide services for our MEMBERS, or are we in this to provide services for the COMMUNITY in general?

If the former, then a civ is probably the proper route.

If you are providing a community service, then a company is probably the better choice.

In either case, I think we will be best to mark the old CFS as an abandoned civ, and start your new venture with a brand new page (of whichever type you choose)

Thanks!

Avatar for Breakfastbreak

I’d rather not change everything downright, as all our membership, current system, and planets and whatnot are remaining the same, all that’s really necessary is a little bit of retconning the description and a name change. Would it be possible to do a simple name change??

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

It looks like you only have three systems on the wiki at present. They would all need to be modified in any case even if you just do a name change. Your members can be the same. Let me think on this for a bit.

Avatar for Breakfastbreak

Noticed you’ve done some work on the civilization. What’s the current status on making a new/using the existing civilization??

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Did you check the notes on your profile page?

Avatar for NunkiII

Hi - it seems that the YRP Alpha-Border base is not included in the statistic-table on the company side - any ideas? Thanks

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

You had swapped the value of the coordinates= and the glyphs= in the infobox (which is where CARGO gets the data). The coordinates field is defined as String, so trying to load in the GL template and all it's odd characters was rejected. As a result, the record didn't get added to the table, so it couldn't show in the statistics.

I have switched the data, and it now shows up. Thanks!

Avatar for NunkiII

holy.. that was easy! thanks

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Well, the solution was easy. Finding the solution took a bit more work <g>

Avatar for NunkiII

I secretly believe in you <gg>

I had seen, Celab thought about a root66 problem, but it wasn't that

Avatar for AbstractBlackStork

Hi, I see some galaxies (including Aptarkaba and Paholiang ) table is broken after neighbouring regions were added - the civilised space column now have `Distance=` added to each civ name. Not sure how to fix it, pls note

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

which page are you seeing this on?

Avatar for AbstractBlackStork

Aptarkaba, Paholiang. Just checked Aptarkaba, looks like you fixed it already. Thanks!
