Welcome, thanks and remarks

Hi Astralninjax, thanks for joining the wiki and being active on it. It's much appreciated as you're adding a lot of content to it. :)

However I have a few remarks to do... (I don't know if you're used to wiki editing in general?)

See you later! :)

Hi Fomtg. Thanks for the input. Here's my reasoning with everything:

I'm aware of the preview featue. The reason Automata Forge has a bunch of small edits is that I was using it to test the ScrollsTest template.

My thought behind the ScrollsTest template was to give each scroll its own picture parameter, and then once that's done, I was going to change the Scrolls template to be what the ScrollsTest template is. I know we want to have everything consistent, there's just a lot of scrolls to change and that takes a while.

I don't plan on doing tons of changes like that any more, don't worry.

As for the reduced images, it was because the current images on the wiki were really old, and even though they were higher resolution, they were from last year when the resource logos were different.

I really like what you did with the Scrolls template. I'll keep it like that.

Thanks for the help. I've been enjoying keeping up this wiki, and I want to keep helping. Let me know if there's any way i can!

Hi, I moved your post to this page because it's easier to keep a discussion on the page where it started. :)

Actually the preview feature also works with template calls. So as long as you first save the template you want to test, you can preview it on any other page (e.g. Automata Forge) and thus test different parameter values without saving that page.

As for the Scroll template itself, it was a good idea to provide a parameter for the image name. However it should be optional as in general scroll images will/should have a similar name, <scroll name>.png, so it doesn't need to be specified, it's implied by the scroll name. The parameter is still useful when, for some reason, the scroll image has a different name. Well all that is how the template should work, but at the moment it can't because images are displayed from an external source (supposed to be updated by kbasten). So our plan was to create a bot that would upload these images from ScrollsGuide to the wiki, but the parameter I added will do the job meanwhile...

Sorry for images, I didn't see that it was about resource logo changes (and Growth logo is quite similar to the old one), I was expecting more changes about scroll rules or stats but couldn't see anything different. Do you have full resolution images of these scrolls?

Anyway, keep doing the good job. I'm just helping with how-tos but you already seem to know what is missing on the wiki. :)

Finally, a small tip: you can sign your posts with ~~~~. It will be replaced by your pseudo and the date and time you saved your post. (see below, I'm using it)

Awesome! Thanks for the heads up. I don't have any high res photos of the new versions of any of the cards except what they post in the changelog. If there's a way do get them, that'd be super helpful, but i don't have one.

Let me know if there are any things I can do to help with anything.

Unfortunately, I don't know any easy way to get them either. :(
