User talk:XAdmin


I am trying to build a wikia on X rebirth and you did a greate job on this website but the navigation here is not very good (no menus).

If you want to join me on I would give you admin rights to make menus and other stuff to get a great X Rebirth website.

If not I compleatly understand beacause you alredy did a lot on this website and it would be very frustrating to get everything on an other one.


Thx for the offer however I'm staying here. I plan on touching up the navigation stuff actually this weekend and adding in a lot more too. -- User:XAdmin

Wikipedia String module?[edit]

Hey! I like what you've done with this wiki. I'm making some contributions myself regarding wares and stations to improve navigation, among other things. You can see my works-in-progresses on my user page.

One of the things I'm working on is a wares navigation pane similar to the block navigation pane you can see on the Space Engineers Wikia. To place the icons, I'm making a template function that will take the name of a ware and turn it into the filename of its icon. Unfortunately, the way you've uploaded them either requires that we create a redirect for every ware with a name with spaces, that you rename the files and change all the references to them, or that I have access the replace template function from the Wikipedia String module (to translate "antimatter cells" to "antimattercells").

Is it possible for you to install this module? It'd make a much cleaner solution than the alternatives.

Ware infobox and side-by-side icon.[edit]

Hey, I've got an infobox template for the Ware pages that I think is ready for introduction. You can check it out in my user space here. If you like what I've done with that, I can also make one for ships.

I've also just about finished a template to consistently place a ware's icon next to a link to its page. The only issue with it is that there doesn't seem to be a way to prevent wrapping between the icon and the link. You can find that here.

Do you mind checking them out and giving the okay before I introduce them into the main wiki?

Looks good to me so if ya want to replace them go right aheads! Thanks and nice job! XAdmin (talk) 17:40, 12 January 2015 (CST)
Done! I'll integrate the Ware Icon template into articles as I go along. At the moment I'm restructuring the categories for stations and modules, and adding information about Modules I'm examining in-game. You should also take a look at my progress with the Wares Nav template on my main user page — it's just about finished. The only thing left is figuring out exactly what I should name a few of the categories. When that's done, I'll upload the last of the icons and let you approve it before I integrate it into the existing wares pages. Wares ice.png DeadFish (talk) 23:21, 12 January 2015 (CST)
