So, my Titanfall 2 Weapons navbox was edited to... bad thing. I don't like how original navbox looks like and tried to make it without subgroups so there won't be those transparent lines which looks out of place.
Look, the new game got RPG'd and MOBA'd a bit, so I don't see the point in making Titanfall 2 Weapons navbox to be general for both Pilot and Titan weapons since every Titan has it's own set of weapons and abilities now. So it might be good to use two separate navboxes or just redesign the current one, so it won't involve any unused space between blocks. Also, maybe colors need to be rethinked.
I won't be undo-ing it.
And that infobox needs to be fixed - what is that "float right" thing in every weapon page? There are two templates for weapons, but the one with slash is working properly. So many things need to be revisited here. I will be visiting here again with template design suggestions later or not. Medlone (talk) 02:10, June 13, 2016 (UTC)
- I see. I'm looking forward for your idea of redesign of this wikia to be matched with Titanfall 2. I'll be waiting for more Titanfall 2 info for now.
- About navbox: Dunno, man. I don't want to photoshop the image with my ideal navbox (I might to though) so you can understand me. I don't understand how you can use that weapon navbox template, it looks bad to me with it being so unprofessional looking even for a wikia. I really hope it's not "your wikia" or "admin's wikia" case and it being the reason for everything being "alright". Medlone (talk) 02:40, June 13, 2016 (UTC)
Hey NFG I see that you are updating the Titanfall 2 wiki very quickly and it's quite impressive. This is my first time editing on a wikia page and I'm a huge fan of Titanfall 2 I would like to help contribute but in your articles for the weapons in Titanfall 2 have a banner that says Unreleased content. I cannot find that banner anywhere and would like to ask you how you added that feature. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this. contact me whenever you are free. -Dan
New Titanfall 2 Images that need sizingEdit
- Hey NFG I see that you are really good at sizing the images from Titanfall 2 and given that you are really good at editing I want to send you a link to a YouTube video with some new footage of Titanfall 2 Multiplayer which has tons of new Images and weapons.

Good to be back! My Titanfall-editing ability was kinda hampered by my not actually having the game, but I'm sure that won't be an issue this summer when I finally get that xbox one. Looking forward to this and Mankind Divided! Among other things.Doctor Fluffy (talk) 02:09, June 16, 2016 (UTC)
Unknown Revolver Edit
I'm about... 81% sure the Unknown Revolver is new. The shape is slightly similar, but the colors and muzzle brake are off. And, well, didn't want to jump the gun.
Been a while since we spoke. In fact probably not since my work ended on the Far Cry community after the launch of Far Cry 4 (and your promotion to Admin there).
The Titanfall community was recently assigned to me due to the upcoming launch of Titanfall 2. As a Community Development Representative for Wikia, I have been given the task of ensuring the latest information is available on the community and assist your community in any way I can. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help out.
I did play a little over the first tech weekend but that genre is not one I normally play and it showed. My character was killed repeatedly, so if you are looking for help with guides or tips, I am not that person. :)
Hey NFJ one day when we are able to gain the rights we want you back on the team on the Mianite WIki
Hello. I am a moderator and user at VS Battles Wiki.
I was wondering if I could have permission to copy and use text from some of your Titan profiles as I am making and editing articles for them, and I want get permission due to a recent situation over there. If we could obtain persmission to use and modify information based for apage summaries I'd appreciate it!
Found a bunch of new weapons in videos here. So I kind of, uh... binge wrote the articles. A lot. Edit: Sorry for any confusion, and for going overboard.
Mainpage Featured ArticleEdit
Hey, was just looking over the mainpage to see what has been updated for Titanfall 2 and it looks great other than the Featured Article. Do you have anything a bit more recent you could change that out with? Looks like the rifle has been the feature since May 2014. Feature one of the new Mechs maybe?

New Feature: DiscussionsEdit
I'm here to give you a heads-up about Discussions, a new feature that we're currently beta-testing and rolling out to more and more communities.
Here's a short overview, in case you haven't heard of it yet: Discussions is a forum-like conversation space that works equally well in a desktop browser, mobile browser, and in our community apps. It will eventually replace the current forums, and all existing forum content will move there. With communities that already have Discussions, we've seen a big influx in new members for the community who signed up just so they could use Discussions and talk to other users about their favorite game. It made the wiki accessible for a lot of users who loved the topic, and enjoyed the articles, but couldn't quite find their niche to contribute before.
Instead of giving you a lengthy description, I suggest checking out Fallout Discussions as an example to see what Discussions is like: http://fallout.wikia.com/d/f
You and the other admins and moderators in this community will have special moderator rights in Discussions as well. You can lock and delete threads, undelete them, see posts that users have flagged as inappropriate, and customize your own guidelines for Discussions, for example, and we're still working on adding more moderation features.
Since Titanfall 2 is coming out this month, and you already have a popular community app, we expect Discussions to become quite active. This could be an opportunity for you to reach new potential members and to grow the community even before the release of the game. If some experienced community members are willing to keep an eye on the new space and post good content at the beginning, leading by example, that'll help make this a valuable new addition to the wiki.
Are you or any of the other current admins and mods interested in moderating Discussions, once it's set up? If you don't have the time to add this to your duties, you can instead look for responsible, active candidates among the new Discussions users, and promote them to moderators. Some Discussions users may not even edit the wiki (many only visit it via the app), but we've seen Discussions-only users do a very good job at moderating.
Other communities have chosen to go that route, with a Discussions-only group of moderators, some have a mix of experienced wiki editors and new Discussions users moderating, and some just expanded their regular moderation to include the Discussions conversations.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this! We're happy to address any concerns you might have, and to help you set up a moderation team for Discussions, if you're up to it! Pinkachu (talk) 19:01, October 6, 2016 (UTC)
I have enabled Discussions on your community and requested that it be added to the dedicated mobile app as well. While the desktop users will be able to use it right away, it will take a bit longer for app users to be able to start using it. I added a link to your navigation bar but Discussions is located here.
Early next year we will be migrating forums to Discussions and retiring the forum feature. If you would like to be one of our first to migrate, let me know and I can set that up. Your topics and content would be converted to Discussions for you and we would turn the forums off once it was complete. You could even put something in the forums now, encouraging posters to move to Discussions.
Be sure to use the link and see the options available to you. Images will need admin approval but anyone can report a post. Moderators will be able to edit or remove posts. I added a hero and icon image for you, but please feel free to change them out. You can also add up to a total of 10 categories for users to tag their posts with. I will help moderate Discussions for now and I will also keep an eye out for regular posters/reporters to possibly promote to moderators. I will let you know if I see any good candidates.
We have found that most of our Discussion postings come from mobile users, who only log in to communicate with other players, which is great, because this still drives traffic to your community! If you have any questions and can't find the answer in Help:Discussions, please let me know! This feature is still in beta and we are here to help you with it in any way we can.

Titanfall 2 VideosEdit
Just wanted to run something past you. We were planning on doing some gameplay capture at the office for Titanfall 2 when it comes out and wanted to see if it'd be cool to host some of the clips on appropriate TF2 pages. For example, short vids showing off the different types of Titans/Weapons etc. on their respective pages. There might be some slightly longer multiplayer strategy vids as well, but we could talk about what the right page for those are.
Anyways, lemme know what you think when you have a second, and have a good weekend if I don't hear from ya before then!
