Update history[edit source]

I propose that the main page (protected) transclude a sub-page with the parcial update history, so the main page formatting is maintained while I can update this section without the bureaucracy of asking administrators to edit for me. Wikis are collaborative projects that anyone can edit, and if only one person can edit then it's not a wiki.--MisterSanderson (talk) 16:05, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Adjusted Patch Notes which transcludes to the Medieval Engineers Wiki Game Development & News section. Have fun and knock yourself out. --Z3ther (talk) 16:50, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you!--MisterSanderson (talk) 17:11, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Proposal: change layout[edit source]

Hello. I think the layout of the main page should be changed. Actually, when the end of the month is near, the update history list gets very long in this 3-columns layout. This makes the others columns to get much blank space.

So, how about, instead of this:

Game Development & News
02.049: added multi-blocks 29/12/2015
02.048: added crafting table. Complex items needs to be crafted in the table. The hand crafting is possible only for simple items. 22/12/2015
02.047: added progress bar to crafting, meals to craft with bonfire and bandages to craft in the character crafting menu 15/12/2015
02.046: added loot bag, so loot items are dropped organized inside one object. 08/12/2015
02.045: enhanced building process, making possible to build without using the ALT key, so only useful combinations can be built. 01/12/2015
02.044: added Medieval Master, a feature in which a normal player on Survival Mode can play as a Creative admin (but still mortal) 25/11/2015
02.043: added cooking system by bonfires 17/11/2015
02.042: implemented tool crafting from basic materials, and changed spawn carts so they disappear from multiplayer when the player disconnects 10/11/2015
02.041: added the option to join a Castle Siege game while it's running; also, now the server list show how much time remains until the end of the game 04/11/2015
→ Full list

This would solve the problem.--MisterSanderson (talk) 15:06, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

So I went ahead and adjusted it to fit a bit better, by cutting out the Wiki Community bit. Your colspans were a bit off, but it should work fine. If you think there should be some other changes feel free to edit and adjust this page as you want and hit me up if I don't notice to change it over. --Z3ther (talk) 21:54, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
It's fine now. Better without that section.--MisterSanderson (talk) 22:57, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Wiki needs content badly.[edit source]

Seems still new, but I'm saying I don't want to see this wiki a stagnant pile of crap with no content, it's how a lot of wikis end up with no content, people want content to add to, few have the resolve to write a page from scratch.

I've taken the liberty of going over to medievalengineers.wikia.com and telling the owner, if he ever logs back on to just delete the wiki, as we have no need for more then one at this point, or at all, why should we divide our knowledge and attention between two wikis on the SAME subject when we can pour both into the SAME wiki. It baffles me yet people keep doing this with so many games.

Anyhow I'm looking to help in any way I can, yet my experience hands on with this game is still limited, I came mostly out of frustration of not being able to find the answers I was looking for.

Hello! Thanks for reaching out. It's really awesome how enthusiastic you are about wanting to help grow the Medieval Engineers Wiki! I'll put some time in this week to try and promote the wiki to our audience and get it in front of Medieval Engineers players. We also have contact with the developers, so I'll talk with them as well. I'll be sure to keep you up to date! BriannaMCR (talk) 16:14, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
