Major Change - an edit which changes a complete page or template with a redesign which alters the entire display of the majority of the information on the page.
Minor Change - an edit or multiple edits across multiple pages such as an addition of a note or altered aesthetic display of information. A minor change should be checked with an administrator or wiki moderator first to make sure it is relevant and timely. This ensures that confirmation can be received and that the change is known about.
If a major change occurs then a discussion forum will be held to discuss the proposed change and a vote will follow the discussion.
If at least 80.0% of the community votes cast are in "Support" of the change then the change will automatically become implemented.
If 60.0% to 79.9% of the community votes cast are in "Support" of the change then the change will go through a two week trial period.
If less than 60.0% of the community votes cast are in "Support" of the change then the change is not implemented.
If a minor change occurs then an administrator or wiki moderator can implement it as a "trial run" from anywhere between five days and one week.
If there are complaints regarding the new change then the change will be reverted.
If the community seems to be responding positively to the change after the set period then the change will be kept.
If the change is kept a community an announcement through a highlighted forum will be created to inform the community of the change and that it had been implemented.
Changes can be requested HERE on this thread.
To vouch for a change COMMENT that you do so.
A proposed change which has been marked as major must have an Administrator OR a current Wiki Moderator vouching for it to move into a discussion.
A proposed change marked as major must also have three other community member vouches
You can Kudos a nomination, but it will BEAR NO WEIGHT on the change.
Threads regarding changes are only to be made by an active Administrator.
Administrators and Wiki Moderators do not need to abide by the system in this thread as they have been entrusted by the community to responsibly make good decisions regarding the use of the tools on the wiki.
However, changes should involve at least one Administrator or Wiki Moderator before being implemented.
I will try to keep it simple and best described here. Sample at the bottom. Personally a minor change.
This is something I was thinking of being forced to edit 2 pages to indicate a normal and twin dragon that it would be just 1 page and have it set up like the below image.
If you have a twin it would indicate in the box to the right. The normal would be the box on the left. By doing this it would be easier to modify the page by indicating if you have the dragon within the yes no star stars crown crowns params and would show others that you have or dont have one or both of each dragon type. The code would go from (|Dragonname=no) to (|Dragon=no | =no) or something like that within the code and that way if they show that that have a normal dragon but no twin then they can change the first no to a yes or w/e they have that is shown by the default. Same if they have a twin where they can change the second no to something that would show they have it.
Thats just one of the reasons but yes. It would make it to where you can indicate if you have a twin in the same page as if you have the normal version. You can still mark them yes=having them. star=11+ crown=elder or w/e the setup is. And these markers can be done on both sides of the infobox by just showing that its dragon=yes|yes or dragon=yes | (some side note for twin / dragon)=yes or however the edits would show.
My thought is it would be setup so the players would see the line like |dragon=yes | twin=yes that way its simple and if they have a twin they know where to put the yes or star or crown marker.
Right, Ill keep this short, Bane and I have been thinking about reorganizing the Epic section of the Dragons page, Or aim is to order by element, release date, and then if needed, alphabetical (only if the other two requirements rule out e.g. 2 dragons of the same element released on the same day).
While technically a major change, personally I don't think it effects navigating the wiki, its just a simple reordering if what's already known. to the average surfer, they most likely wont care, probably.
