Hi! just wanted to ask: when do you think an article about the weapons and weapon types in Destiny 2 should be created? Articles about Destiny 2 weapons have been created twice but were deleted both times due to insufficient content. the second time an article was created it was made by me and I think I did a decent job on the weapon types and what weapons were available within them, though for the new sub-machine gun and grenade launcher descriptions I just altered descriptions for the auto rifle and the rocket launcher. I didn't have a lot of citations but I did what I could.
I was looking at the wiki activity, I scrolled down to see things, and the stats it shows on a weapon are kinda backwards. Is that going to be fixed or is it going stay that way (It's fine if it does).
The order is likely just based on the where that stat appears in the database, hence it not matching the order in-game. The "HoverTool" as its been dubbed, is considered to be in beta at this stage, so any input is appreciated. I'll let T3CHNOCIDE know.
As for why not every item is working, here is what I've observed.
The code that figures out what each link is for isn't perfect. There are a few bugs to fix. (a known bug is the inability to handle the url escape codes used for items like "Emerald Coil")
The database was generated from a query to the Destiny API, while this gets the bulk, there are plenty of items that can only be queried directly. Hence my some things are missing. (EG: the Jovian Guard armor set)
The database only covers armor, weapons and consumables at this stage, but there are plans to include other things like things like quests. The database also currently does not cover disambiguation pages.
I've taken a quick look at this before work. As Silicon said, there are a few outstanding bugs, but I can fix those in the coming week. As for the reload issue, no doubt this is due to JS loading before the links.
I'll have a chat with Wikia and see what I can do.
1. Awesome! Great to see people pitching in! And thanks for getting this going!
2. I've renamed the image.
Something you might not already know, when inspecting the gear of other players, their tag is no longer visible. So we can get nice clean screenshots of gear other players have! Doesn't work so well with armor if they've got a shader (or chroma) equipped, but works great for weapons.
Never thought I'd see the day when there would be less than 200 weapon images needed. And to be frank, it still hasn't come. There are a handful of pages that I've got to have my bot flag. :( On day soon I hope... XD
Hey Silicon. Have you heard about the Destiny Olympics Competition? There are few competitions that are to have clans compete who sign up for it. Some competitions include a raid marathon, speedrunning a particular strike with modifiers, sparrow races, crucible, a bingo/easter egg hunt, etc. It all takes place between august 2nd and august 9th (reset to reset). I would imagine we can make a post about it to those clans out there interested but I don't want to dilute the wikia itself that I understand is meant for information. What are your thoughts?
Hey Silicon, if I come across things that could use editing (im seeing grammar and context and puncuation issues) do I have your support in making those changes? I hope to redeem myself for the behavior that I came into this wikia with to show I'm really not a bad guy and to also help out where I can on the wikia as I am an avid Destiny player and fan.
There was a spat between 11 - 19 November 2015 that was ultimately resolved. Cubby85 seems to have been trying to do the right thing, but ignored how long ago this happened, and ironically adopted a condescending tone.
