Hey sorry to disturb you, but I was wonderinf if you happen to know if the term Empire of Man was ever referenced in any book or source material? I'm asking because this one particular guy is making a fuss about it.
Hi GZilla! I'm Eledan, one of the Spanish admins of the Circle of Terra (which comprises most Warhammer wikis, along with this one). At this wiki, I'm mainly helping with the design and technical issues.
Firstly, I wanted to congratulate you for your 4500+ editions. Warhammer Wiki has progressed a lot in this last year, and you played your part in it.
I'd like to invite you to join our English Slack channel - an easy, fast, private and free communication system for the most active members of the Circle (Dante and Paraduo are already there). If you come over, we'll be able to help you in no time with anything you need, and even send you all the armybooks you want!
To join, you just have to give me an email address, and I'll send an invitation there. If you don't want to publish your address here, just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you're in Slack, you'll be able to communicate with the rest of the team from your computer or smartphone.
Okay, I will. I make sure not to add the ones that say "[X] type of character". If I make a blatant error, feel free to correct. Thank you for the concern, however. I was wondering If I was doing something wrong even beforehand, but wasn't sure if I should STOP doing it either.
Don't worry, when we upload images to the Spanish Wiki, we always make sure they are from official products (army books, rpg books, official videogames, card games, etc ...). However, it's true that many of the pictures actually come from early concept designs, cut content, concept arts, etc... They are not canon, but they are official pictures.
Not all of the pages is necessarily unofficial, such as the grail and the green knight. When I get out of work, I'll personally review these pages. Some of them can simply be converted by citing official materials Instead. If I can find any official sources for these pages, I wont delete them.
Hey there! Please don't add all the weapons to the Weapons category. They're to be grouped into their respective races' armouries - to each their own. That way we don't overload the Weapons category, and keep only the most relevant tags on the articles =)
Sorry! I was using the same methodology I saw in the 40K one.
Speaking of, should there be an umbrella category for the individual armories (a category where to put the other armories) and same for Militaries? As a way for people to more easily shift from one to another.
Start with 6th Ed., and when you're done with it, check 8th Ed. for any new stuff to be added onto the first articles or to be made into new ones =) Remember to cite your sources as explained in the last part of the Guidelines!
As I said earlier, Bretonnia, Lizardmen, Beastmen, Ogre Kingdoms and Tomb Kingdoms didn't have any armouries before today. Get started with Tomb Kings, which only have two books to check, and we'll eventually get to fill all the armouries to the brim :D
Heh. So, I'm gonna try and make a list of the pages to do as I go (that way, we can both have a running tally to make it easier to remember what to do), but I have a question.
As I'm going through the two editions, there are (of course) differences in naming. For instance, the Spear of Antarhak (7th Edition) versus the Blade of Antarhak (8th Edition), or as another example, the Death Mask of Kharnut (7th Edition) versus the Golden Death Mask of Kharnut (8th Edition). Which names should I go with? In some examples, the 7th edition is more exact, while in others, the 8th is.
Technically, the latter edition supersedes the earlier, even if it doesn't make much sense (GW has a long history of fragging up their own fluff xd). Make a "Canon Conflict" section before the sources and state the differences there =)
That's good news! I'm afraid it'll take some time before I'm able to check out your work properly - I'm busy doing a thorough revamp of the Spanish 40k wiki work and also finishing up my Master thesis atm, so I suggest you get more in touch with Dante and Paraduo for now :/
As part of our efforts to get the wiki "up to code" before Total War: Warhammer's and the app's launching, I've prepared a campaign on this blog to focus the energy of as many users as possible on finishing incomplete/sourceless articles off. Would you like to join us? Pick one of the first twelve articles in the comments section!
Don't worry, we can give you download links to almost any book you may need for the task - each article in the blog has a list of related sources we should check to fill it up, so you won't get lost - just read, copy, paste, and write down where you found the info =)
