  • When it deals with adding pages or content, how would you go about adding armor which has a color variation as well as differing attributes dfespite being Gwalior Type 1 armor?

    If it sounds odd I'll say it like this: One form of Gwalior Armor (the helmet to be precise) has one variant which is based to Discipline. The other I have is for Strength and is of a differing color.

    My question is, how do I go about adding that to this wiki?
    Gwalior Type 1 Variant

    • That's a good question, and something we're tying to figure out. It seems that rarity, weapon damage, and weapon stats such as strength and discipline are completely random. So the best thing to do is add them by their name. I.e. Gwalior Type 1 helmet and ignore it's stats for the time being.

    • I thought that also changed based upon level. In regards to the Gunsmith whom gives you weapons based on the completion of the Array mission. None of the weapons had a Solar property so I waited and hopes he changed it. His stock updated two hours later but I was back within one hour after reaching a higher level.

      His rewards changed while his initial stock had yet to update.

      Beta Gear

      The link above would be my current Titan with the armor equipped. I'm not sure if you can the link it via the comment, if not I'll revise it.

    • What was the original stock, and what did his new stock change to?

    • The Sargon-C held 51 in attack with no special damage. After returning (after leveling) the Sargon had 55 in attack and deals Void Damage.

      The Deacon R/S was of common make. It had 51 attack and once returning it still dealt the same amount of damage but also gained the Void property.

      The other two choices I do not remember the names. They both changed as well, one dealing Arc damage while the other dealing Void.

  • How does category usage here differ from Halo Nation? I notice a lot of articles are included in both a subcategory and parent category (for example, in both the Auto Rifles and Primary Weapons categories instead of just Auto Rifles). Is there a policy or standard in place?

      Loading editor
    • Hey. They should be kept under their respective subcategories only. So an autorifle such as the Galahad-B should be cateogorised under Auto Rifles, which in turn is categorised under Primary Weapons.

    • We'll make this into a cohesive policy for clarity.  Until then, please hold on making changes to existing articles/category pages. Thanks for the heads up!

  • Hello,

        I was wondering if there were race advantages toward a class. Such as Exo will have more armor and less manuverability.


    Thank you, Anonymous

  • Hey T3CHNOCIDE,

    It seems there's an issue with the social icons on the wikia, as they're appearing outside of the content area which prevents most of the buttons from showing up. Here's a screenshot. Are you experiencing this issue as well?

    • Hey MarkvA,

      I'm not no. However I'm going to be changing the position of the social icons tomorrow, so that may solve the problem!

      Cheers.

  • Hey T3CH, Bungie has revealed the Achievement/Trophies for Destiny. Now I would assume each achievement would get its own page? In any case i can help if you like. You can find them [m.ign.com/articles/2014/06/27/destinys-achievements-and-trophies-revealed here].

  • Hey T3CHNOCIDE, I've notice recently that a lot of the content from this wiki is being copied onto the wiki here.

    For example:

    ... is copied from our Banshee-44 article.

    And:

    I'd assume that us having a few similarities would be okay and is bound to happen, but entire pages are, frankly, unacceptable. I've seen some of the content on their wiki, and if I see something that we don't have, I try my best to translate it in my own words, along with doing a bit of original research. One of their guidelines actually has to do with not copying (I'll refrain from calling it plagiarism), and relying on your writing skills to rewrite the information you've discovered during your research.

    I respect their unique set up over there, and would appreciate if they respected ours enough not to copy the content verbatim. Basically, since you are an Admin, I think it would be best if the leaders of our site would address this matter with their leaders.

    That's all I have to say, thanks.

    • Thanks for the comprehensve info, Regular Guy,

      Please do remember this wiki's General Disclaimer.  All original content placed on this wiki by any user is freely redistributable and publicly licensed.  That means anybody can copy any original content from this wiki and freely place it anywhere they want, including entire pages.  We do prohibit plagiarism (including copying entire articles/pages without attribution) on this wiki, but our policies do not extend to other sites.  As you might know, we advise all users and editors to read the General Disclaimer (it's linked on our front page) and keep it in mind, in order to avoid these kinds of issues.

      As we've always said, our interest is in getting information to as many fans as possible (part of the reason for the Creative Commons license granted to all content here).  As long as nothing is hindering that, we would rather focus on adding to and editing great content here.  Remember our mission statement - we are doing this for free in order to make this wiki awesome and get information out to Destiny fans, nothing more.  Even as administrators, we have no interest in spending our time arguing with admins of another website over something that doesn't affect us -- and which we've expressly said is allowed!

      Remember that this is the premier and most comprehensive wiki for Destiny information.  At some level, other sites are bound to copy content from here regardless.  Which is fine -- we do not even try to prohibit that, and in fact expressly permit it in our General Disclaimer.  If the other site's admins see users violating that site's own policies, they can deal with it on their own terms.  In the meantime, I would just suggest you do what we do, and concentrate on making this wiki as awesome as possible :-)  Thanks again!

    • In the most part Foman123 has repeated much of what I have said. The only issue I can see in the plagarism from the other site is that they haven't attributed the original authors as required by the CC-BY-SA license that the wiki's content is protected by. I'll speak to the Wikia staff about it, it's likely however it will end up being a simple request to please remember to attribute the original authors and not much else.

      Thanks for bringing it to our attention though!

    • Okay then, I'll just take you guys' word for it, cause' I'd rather not get heavily involved with this right now.

      I was just under the assumption that we were competing wikis, because the guys over on there end have made it quite clear that they're trying to upstage this place, or any place on the internet for that matter, in terms of proving an abundant amount of information on Destiny.

      We've discussed it with the admins there and they've added attribution for the edits in their page history. As for upstaging other wikis. As a nature of wikis they will always strive to be the best source of information, it's a goal we have too. It's best to not get concerned with it :)

    • Hi there,

      You're actually missing the key JavaScript code which runs the slider. Simply wipe your MediaWiki:Wikia.js page, and add this code:

      importArticles({
          type: "script",
          articles: [
              "u:halo:MediaWiki:Wikia.js/Slider.js",
              'u:dev:SocialIcons/code.js',
              'MediaWiki:Wikia.js/userRightsIcons.js',
      	"u:dev:ReferencePopups/code.js"
          ]
      });

  • Hey Josh!

    Just wanted to say thanks again for coming along with us to E3 and helping out. You knocked it out of the park (sorry, American idiom) as usual, and it was much appreciated. Hope you had a good time!

    Cheers

  • Hey Josh, it's Doug from Wikia! Hope you have a great time at E3 this year (sadly I won't be in attendence). I wanted to ask you if you could emebed this E3 2014 Pencil Banner onto the Destiny game page and have it link to the E3 Portal on the Games Hub. I'm  going to be reaching out to alot of various wikis have them embed the banner on their game pages to help get more eyes on the hub and the wiki's work!

    Take it easy, man : > TheBlueRogue @Wikia •(profile)•(talk)•(doug@wikia-inc.com) 19:29, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
