Mod Spotlight

Time for a new one, suggestions? --Jp26991 15:14, 12 May 2007 (CDT)

Anybody? Nobody...dust! --Jp26991 11:06, 15 May 2007 (CDT)

how about deus lo vult or scicillian vespers? move things away from the holy land kinda thing Jebus

They need a 'decent' wiki article with at least one picture. I'm away for a few days now so I'll see if there are any suitable articles or suggestions when I get back. --Jp26991 11:18, 16 May 2007 (CDT)

Updates Discussion

If there are suggestions for a featured articles or mod spotlight, it should probably be discussed in advance here. Also when you create a new page which has a relatively high degree of new content then you should list it on the "Newest Articles" list. I don't think we should list minor pages like phrase definitions etc though.--Spiff 11:55, 20 April 2007 (CDT)

I agree about the new articles bit. I'll set up a featured article category and see where it goes...Category_talk:Featured --Jp26991 13:13, 20 April 2007 (CDT)

Should we not have a new mod spotlight now? I would suggest the lord of the rings mod for now since its probably one of the most complete articles at present--Spiff 14:13, 22 April 2007 (CDT)

The problem is if we set a precedent of changing it every week we will soon run out of suitable articles. I'll change it in a few days. --Jp26991 10:32, 23 April 2007 (CDT)

I dont think thats a problem really, there are plenty of mods out there to write about. The aim of the mod spotlight is to give the mod exposure after all, not to just demonstrate which ones have full articles on the wiki.--Spiff 10:53, 23 April 2007 (CDT)

Any ideas for a new Mod Spotlight then? Needs a piccy and a quality article. --Jp26991 12:14, 2 May 2007 (CDT)

Not really, Broken Crescent guys have been working on their page quite a bit, think it could do with some more info though - and of course that isn't released - is release a requirement for the spotlight? --Makanyane 13:30, 2 May 2007 (CDT)

I suppose not. I'll probably put that up this weekend. --Jp26991 10:13, 3 May 2007 (CDT)

A New Style?

I was considering the portal style templates used on the Modding_Portal page, perhaps it would be a good idea to use this format for information on the front page? Essentially we could have 2, one which replicates the current table which was recently added with regard to modding tools etc, and another below it regarding the Total War community. -Spiff

As purely personal opinion I think idea could work, would you be able to do bit of draft using the Modding Portal page? so more complete version can be seen - also wasn't sure about that one in terms of colour / style as it seems a bit alien from rest of wiki pages and side bars atm, would you propose changing that? -Mak.

Well since i was up late tonight anyway, i wrote up and half finished a possible new outline over at Spiff_test - let me know what you think. It doesn't use the modding portal template, i borrowed the style from another wiki (first one i found on google that looked good). On the plus side, it is easy to edit/understand. -Spiff

Good to see it implemented. A thread should be pinned in the Medieval2 Mod Workshop forum (or somewhere similar) saying that the wiki is a good place to start for tutorials and such --Spiff 10:26, 17 April 2007 (CDT)

I did add a note in the Tutorial section http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=92488 under Trajan's pin so we shouldn't do any-more spamming in that specific section. Could try in the workshop as well but don't overstate the case, we're still rather light on content, so need balance between advice to look here and appeal for help adding content.

General talk/off topic

Oh my god... You have any forums left professor? I heard that you were banned from SCC as well... What are you going to do?

Also stupid as I am, who is Besin and what exactly is ogres. Is it like EZboard? Also does anyone rank above Besim? -Angmar nite

Yes, I was banned from SCC in similar circumstances. An administrator that was extremely detached from the community, who refused to listen to his members, and was destroying his site. And where is SCC now? Its lost its hosted mods and its lost its moderators and many of its members. Before you speak you should have an idea what you are talking about.

Amir created a duplicate account and claimed it was mine, and banned me. Can I be at fault for my permaban when the cause was something I didn't even do? Its what he had to do to get rid of me, because I had the support of almost all of the top 20 posters on the site, he couldn't just say 'I banned him because I didn't like him." Now shush.


Holy poo diss bring out the burnage machine! -.Socrates

Hi guys, I found so much useful things here. Thank you.

most of this talk doesn't seem to belong to this page anymore - could it be deleted / moved?


Why can't I be a sysop? :( - Livia
