  • Hi, welcome to XCOM Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the File:2KGM SLINGSHOT cover.jpg page.

    Please leave me a message if I can help with anything!

    • Thanks for the welcome. I've been lurking and editing anonymously for the last couple days and decided I might as well register so I can do more.

  • Dude well done for all of the pictures you have put up, really cool

    • Thanks. I've scoured a fair portion of the internet to find many of them and a lot of others are screenshots I've taken from promotional and gameplay videos.

  • Thanks for creating the page for the new XCOM game and adding news about it on the mainpage. Good work. I was worried for a moment when I saw 2kMarin's site taken down, but it will turn out right by the looks of it.

    • Sure, let's make a start with that. See what new information will come the next few weeks. I just changed the Muton XCOM: EU and its disamb. page. It's better to move the old page, that way the history comes along with it.

    • Ah, good call. I hadn't thought about that. I'll try getting some stub pages for agents and few more enemies up then.

  • Hola Monkeybite! I'm excited to tell you that 2K would like to work with this Wiki in order to promote the game The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. They want to do this by running two different quizzes on this wiki.

    Quiz 1 - Quiz 1 will be a personality quiz where people will be paired with a secret agent from the following secret agents (Solid Snake, Sam Fisher, The Spy (Team Fortress 2), Agent 47, and the XCOM Agent) based on their answers. It will be very similar to the quiz currently featured here.

    Quiz 2 - Quiz 2 is more of a yes/no trivia-based quiz. It will based on historical events from the 1960s and 1970s. It will be similar to the quiz currently featured here.

    Basically, from you/the other admins (whom I will be reaching out to) I need to know is it allowed to post these quizzes on here - and if you have any questions that you'd like to submit for either of these quizzes.

    Thanks.

    • I've given my ok on this. The developer wanting to work with us and posting some quizzes is good promotion them, us and the game. We all benefit.

    • Sounds good. I saw this request earlier but I figured I would leave it to your discretion.

  • Best wiki online! Hoping the same people add a new section for the Enemy Within game upcoming

      Loading editor
    • Been thinking about that a bit lately. I was originally thinking we might need to break off the DLC link into its own navigation tab under the main Enemy Unknown one but given how much content Enemy Within is adding, it might warrant tab by itself. It's something I'll have to discuss with the other admins first though as we'll need to consolidate some of the other tabs to make room.

    • I think the traffic is going to increase tons, would probably be a mostly "Within" crowd at that point and they'll likely be looking for a tab vice submenu. Just my thoughts.

      I do know that this Wiki is just a ton of fun to click around here. Learned a lot, too. Another thanks for this place.

  • Hey Monkeybite,

    Just wanted to let you and the other XCOM Admins know that we're doing an interview next week with the lead designer on Enemy Within, so if you guys or anyone else on the XCOM Wiki have any questions, please post them here, and we'll make sure to ask them for you.

    Thanks!

  • We've had two overeager editors dropping Bureau imagery into XCOM: EU pages. I can't seem to revert multiple edits and repair the damage.

    • Thanks. But the Elerium page still needs sorting out.

        Loading editor
    • I held off on that one because I'm debating if turning that page into a disambiguation page and moving the current content to two different pages given Elerium's prominent presence in both games.

        Loading editor
    • If it's in there (not a Bureau player) then definitely.

  • Why don't we create a category "MEC" to keep together the associated equipment, since they're mostly a closed-off system? And how would we relate them to Weapon Platforms?

      Loading editor
    • Works for me. As for relating to Weapon Platforms, do you mean for the Foundry Upgrades that also boost S.H.I.V.s? I don't see any particular reason for a special category designation in that regard. If you mean linking in general, just direct them to the base S.H.I.V. page for now.

    • So are we or are we not going to put both old and new content into Enemy Within categories?

        Loading editor
    • Enemy Within is technically an expansion (despite the slightly different treatments on PC and consoles) so I'm going to say it's best we stick with Enemy Unknown categories where they exhisit but also tag new content that can only be found in the expansion with the XCOM: Enemy Within category.

        Loading editor
    • Understood. ALL new content.

  • I was thinking of making a color template for Meld, as we already have for Power and Credits. I like the idea but am slightly concerned about having a rainbow of text in articles, since that would make five potential colors including the standard text and links. (Although I doubt many articles would make use of all five at once.) Any thoughts about that?

    I also wanted to discuss the "Added by:" that is included when "thumb" is used to add a caption to an image. Many of the larger wikis such as Fallout an Elder Scrolls disable that feature, as it is somewhat odd to place emphasis on an individual contributor in the mainspace, not to mention unnecessary since that info is already displayed when clicking on the pic. Personally, I've avoided adding captions because I find it inappropriate to have my username/image appear in an article, especially multiple times. Disabling it simply requires adding a line to the MediaWiki:Wikia.css, and I was wondering how you and Jspoelstra feel about that.

    • Ok, adjusted the color to what looks like a reasonable match of the icon (and dropped the word Meld); looks pretty good in your Sandbox now so I think we can move ahead.

        Loading editor
    • The template and documentation are done, and I'll start implementing it soon. I've uploaded the larger Meld symbol as previously discussed. I wasn't sure if you wanted just the symbol or the full recovery image, so I uploaded both. Feel free to delete one if you'd like.
