== New Bureaucrat Needed ==
I'm making this post on the other admins walls as well. I'd like some discussion on the forum post I made [[Forum:New_Bureaucrat_Needed]]. The wikia currently has no active bureaucrats which means no one that wants to become an admin can apply to do so. Would you be interested in taking that position?

Fandom Partners with EA for Mass Effect Andromeda


As you may or may not know, Fandom has a partnership with Electronic Arts. Due to the upcoming release of Mass Effect Andromeda, EA is offering to supply our design team with visual assets. The purpose is to use them to provide Mass Effect Wiki with a new logo, background, and other design features. The main impact of these 'spiffs' as we call them, are generally seen on the MainPage but can occasionally include new pages such as our Instant Expert or Getting Started guides. We do our best to seek community approval before the new designs are implemented.

Please respond and let us know if you and your community would be interested in our help with a visual update. We would do our best to make sure it reflects the upcoming game as much as possible without losing the features you feel are most important to your users. Our most recent admin and community collaborations can be seen at the Deus Ex Wiki and Civilization Wiki. I will personally be here to help answer questions or concerns, and of course, to help with editing once the game is released.

On a side note - what is the video policy here? I looked at some of the editing policies that were community specific and I did not see it. I only noticed that your community isn't using them. An explanation or a link to the actual policy would be appreciated.

Please let me know soon! Thanks. Pinkachu (talk) 18:59, January 10, 2017 (UTC)

hi, i've sent out some messages to the other guys if they have anything to suggest. off the top of my head i can only think of the main page to focus on as its layout hasn't been updated for a very long time, due to reasons.
in terms of visual assets, it would be nice to have a couple of (very) high-resolution/high-quality images and icons. the andromeda items we currently have i only ripped from the existing trailers since there aren't any other (legit) sources available.
the video policy can be summed up as "thanks, but no thanks." using videos was decided against early on because of quality concerns (and because almost all of them featured irrelevant gameplay elements and/or some guy's shepard or another - in violation of canon concerns). pictures are much easier to manipulate. file usage on the wiki is prescribed here: MEW:Files Guideline.

PS also if you know who manages the MEWiki twitter please remind them to resume updating - none of us have access to it. thanks.
I don't have much to add to what he said. Main page needs an update for sure. Looks like the two examples given have a "featured" area at the top which links to the latest game. I think that's a good idea for us. I also like the Civ wiki's tab solution for the previous games -- pretty slick.
High-res images are always welcome, preferably without watermarks. The link to the section on our video policy is here. Trandra (talk) 15:44, January 13, 2017 (UTC)

Hello! After a discussion with relative staff regarding the redesign of your main page, I had a question regarding the current navigation/content area. We want to design something for you that eliminates the box of massive links, and combines it with the icon section - but still makes the most important information readily available to your users. The tabbed box from Civilization Wiki is certainly a possibility but there is another example you might like even better. Take a look at the top navigation box at Dragon Age Wiki. This is also something we could easily accomplish and it is visually appealing. We have high rez images we can use for this.
Do us a favor, and take another look, this time at all three examples and let us know which feature you like the most on any of them. Once we have this information, we will work on a mock-up that we can then share with you. Thanks! Pinkachu (talk) 23:28, January 27, 2017 (UTC)


Hello! Is there any policy regarding non-registered user contributing to this wiki? As per Kallini:_Ardat-Yakshi_Monastery history page it seems so. Can you give the reason why you reverting it again and again? I just documented as it happened ingame. 15:49, February 2, 2017 (UTC)

there -is- a policy against using another IP address to circumvent your block. there -is- a policy against editwarring which you are keen to do so despite the numerous warning reverts. there -is- a policy to discuss issues on talkpages instead of engaging in edit warring.
this is your final warning to take the hint and read up on the guidelines. you have no excuse for not doing so, it is linked literally on your talkpage and on the top navigation bar.
now, your changes are always undone because they're unnecessary and irrelevant to the acquisition section. that is strictly for how the mission is acquired and nothing else. there's already a note right below explaining what's what.

Do you think we should go ahead and make a page for Jaal or wait until they explicitly say he's a squadmate? Devs have acknowledged him and the Funko pop model of him. TheUnknown285 (talk) 23:24, February 12, 2017 (UTC)

Why did you revert changes to the races stuff? Gave no reason, can't think of a good reason myself —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 480083‎ (talk · contr).

Community Council

Hey Temporaryeditor78. I'm Brandon from Fandom's Community Support team. As the most active admin here on Mass Effect Wiki, I'd like to invite you to join our Community Council. This is the group where we post features and announcements early to collect early user feedback that helps shape what the final product looks like. We think you'd be a great fit, and there's a project I'd love to talk to you about once you're in the Community Council. Would you be interested? If so, I can email you more information about how to join, using the email address in your Fandom account. Let me know on my talk page or via email (brandon@fandom.com). Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:59, February 23, 2017 (UTC)

  • Hey Temporaryeditor78. Following up here. Are you interested in joining? Let me know! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 19:52, February 24, 2017 (UTC)

I would highly suggest looking over Temp's talk page about his history of banning people without warning, almost never giving a description or reason for his edits or reverts, and his blatant abusive, flaming, trolling behavior towards others. Please look at his talk page from last year or the year before as well as his edit history. He is terrible to this community.


Hey, just wondering if we had any templates for the ME:A stuff yet like adversaries, planets, etc.? Also, what's the template to rename? Isn't it move? Muchas gracias. TheUnknown285 (talk) 04:22, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

it's {{{Move|newpagename|reasons}}}. the only templates thus far are for spoilers, weapons and the discovery comic as 1) they were borne out of necessity and 2) the datasets bioware provided on them can stand on their own. 10:40, March 1, 2017 (UTC)
Alright. I'm almost done adding enemies (at least the ones we've seen so far), so let me know when the enemies template is done and I'll add it to the pages. TheUnknown285 (talk) 16:47, March 2, 2017 (UTC)

Andromeda Galaxy Page

I was going to create a page for the Andromeda Galaxy but notice you had deleted two previous articles for "jumping the gun." Is it time yet to make an article? I wanted your blessing first before I made an article. TheUnknown285 (talk) 19:01, March 3, 2017 (UTC)

Habitat Pages

So are we making pages for the Habitat pages besides 7? We have a couple of lines for each but didn't know if that was sufficient. Also worried they will have their own names (I suspect H1 is Elaaden). TheUnknown285 (talk) 01:28, March 7, 2017 (UTC)

probably not yet. as you pointed out there's a possibility of overlap, there's only a bunch of lines about them already covered by the verbatim blurbs, and as we will probably see later the briefing images are hilariously out of date with the real deal. 06:41, March 8, 2017 (UTC)

Andromeda Trophies

Just came out. I would've tested it out myself, but I figured you'd might have better experience in making an article about them. [2]--Observer Supreme 23:03, March 8, 2017 (UTC)

If you have any doubts to the veracity of that list, Mike Gamble tweeted to avoid reading the achievements list if you want to avoid spoilers. Ian Frazier retweeted that warning. To me, that indicates that the list Observer Supreme linked (which thus far is the only I've seen) is correct. TheUnknown285 (talk) 14:50, March 9, 2017 (UTC)

telling people not to read something isn't an admission that that something is true. establishing the latter is still a different matter. ask any lawyer and i ain't even one. 23:12, March 9, 2017 (UTC)
Even if not yet confirmed, it's a good base for a sandbox (just to be ready when MEA comes out). However, it's for someone who is not afraid of Spoilers (which I'm not!).--DeldiRe (talk) 13:02, March 10, 2017 (UTC)

Modernizing the wiki

You mentioned on my talk page about Wikia modernizing the wiki from under the hood, I assume it's something to do with using their new portability markup to update our templates to be mobile friendly? If that's the case, there's plenty of work to update our templates, especially the infoboxes, to the new markup (I've been reading this). But by the looks of it, this will alter the design of our infobox in order to port over to the new markup.  teugeneTalkContr 08:11, March 10, 2017 (UTC)

tried giving that a go back when it was new but i simply hadn't the time to think on it more. fishtank did a runthrough on some of our templates, i get the basic logic of what he's doing (which apparently retains much of our design choices), although i've no idea if he's finishedT̴̴͕̲̞̳̖̼̱͒͛̎͒ͫ̃ͧeͩ̈̽̈҉͓̝̰̼̦̫̤̀͠m̫̪̪̯̻͎̫̅̇̓̇͌̚p̸̙̝̓̓͌ͨ͆ͣͥ̂̕o͒̽͐̽͏̞̬̻͕͔͕͚̰͍͠͞ṙ̢̞͚͈̹̰ͨ̓ͭ̈́̌ạ̢̧̪̹̺̺̣̹̲͂͆̏ͪͨ͒ͭř̹͈͜͠y̷͍̻̜̹̼̾̽̈́e̵̹̼̟̦͚͐̈́͌͘d͉̲̣̻͉̱͗̅ḭ̷̻̆͋̆̓̔͝t̨͍̦̫̗͂̅̍̋̆ͩ͝ộ̫̟̬̳̝̲̾ͫ̒̿ͮ̑̚rͯ̎ͨͭ̄̿̽͛҉̠̫̱̠̘̘̲́ͅ7̩̻ͤͩͨ͝͡8̜̣̙͇̻ͨ͛͛̆͒̆̽̒͐͜͡ ͥ̍̉̃̇ͥ̓ͨ͏̕҉̥̹͓̗̤̠̖̤ (talk) 13:35, March 11, 2017 (UTC)
Some design can be retain though it won't exactly be the same. Some CSS are not possible with the current structure. Not that it is a bad thing but moving ahead, it means we have to think simpler infoboxes design... especially when MEA releases. I'm experimenting with the markup myself and see what I can achieve.  teugeneTalkContr 15:08, March 11, 2017 (UTC)

Mind if I jump in here? Some of the more interesting CSS is actually possible, such as Template:Adversary (Draft) and Template:Weapon (Mass Effect 3) (Draft). Some of it has less to do with CSS and more to do with how the data is structured, like the multiple levels at Template:Weapon_(Mass_Effect_2) in "Damage Multipliers". And some are more data presentation oriented, like the lifebars (which, for maximum accessibility, should have a text alternative ). I've got quite a few drafts at Special:Insights/nonportableinfoboxes that are ready to go. Sorry that I haven't been communicating as much as I could be, but I wanted to make sure these were just right before I reached out. FishTank (wall) 16:33, March 13, 2017 (UTC)

Hey there! Thanks for the work you've done. From what I can see, it looks good and ready to go! I could learn some a thing or two from you! Will you be working on other templates in the future as well?  teugeneTalkContr 06:54, March 14, 2017 (UTC)
And while we are on the topic, what do you think about using Modules to simplify certain templates, especially the unwieldy ones with sub-templates?  teugeneTalkContr 07:04, March 14, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! My intention was to cover the infoboxes that cover more than 100 articles and consult on (or migrate) any new ones you need for Andromeda (including a new theme for the MEA infoboxes). There are a few more I can do quickly and easily, as they use your existing theme (I called it Theme1, but it's based on galaxy-details and I didn't want to override or misname it). I'd rather reserve Lua / Module use for when it's really needed; in some cases it can have key benefits, but in others it's "just another language to learn" and I don't want to leave you with something you can't maintain. FishTank (wall) 19:19, March 14, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the assistance. We will adjust/rename the theme if needed as we go along. As for the Modules, one of the particular application in mind is to simplify the PowerDetails value inside the adversary templates.  teugeneTalkContr 10:14, March 15, 2017 (UTC)


Is anything seen in actual, verifiable footage of Andromeda fair game to add to pages, or are we restricted to only official videos as srouces until launch day?

for now, journalistic outlets (ign, gamespot etc) yes. random schmucks no. vids uploaded by anyone after early access, yes, but priority sourcing from news sources.
referencing required for everything until about a week or so after launch when everybody can roughly discern obvious bullshit from real news.

Question continued

Sorry about the separate section, I'm trying avoid triggering this filter that keeps blocking me from commenting on your page. It says it detected a slur but I don't know how.

I was going to ask if my source qualified as a journalist outlet but you approved an anon's edit to the Ark page that came from the same source, Video Game Sophistry. If you approve, I want to add more details from that source, some planets seen on the galaxy map and two things about the quarians and krogan. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ((╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻) 09:39, March 15, 2017 (UTC)

sorry about the slur filter lel. that one came from me above and the filter so happens to be very restrictive (it doesn't discern between text already in the page and your reply, so everything gets blocked at submit). issue will resolve on its own for you in a few days or so.
i took a quick look at the vid's maker, doesn't appear to be some random leaker, so it's fair game. 09:47, March 15, 2017 (UTC)

Cool, boss. And boy was that filter pesky. Tried to post hours ago but no matter how often I reworded my comment I kept getting blocked.

Regarding my edits to the Nexus page, I got two different spoiler videos that confirm my edit regarding Tiran Kandros as leader of the Nexus militia but cannot into wikia so I don't know how to make that little number box that links to the source.

So, while searching for ME:A music, I found what appear to be the closing credits for the game. It's weird that someone has already seen them given that most of the playthroughs thus far are capped at a certain level. But they certainly look legit. Do you think it's okay to fill in the voice actors for roles that we're still missing like Kesh, Addison, etc.? TheUnknown285 (talk) 01:57, March 16, 2017 (UTC)

leak from random schmuck. nope. 03:11, March 16, 2017 (UTC)

Heads up about minor edit to CSS

Hi. A co-worker noticed that a small bit of code on Wikia.css and Common.css was causing the wiki's logo to be pushed down a bit and be misaligned with the local navigation menu. The specific code was very old and, because the current default CSS that applies to h2 headings on articles is more specific, the removal of this snippet of code will have no effect on articles.

i always thought it was supposed to be like that :p . never realized that even on other wikis. well, the more we know. thanks for clearing that up 17:26, March 16, 2017 (UTC)

Start of Page Header Test

Hey Temporaryeditor78!

The next stage of our Wiki Modernization project is to test the page and article headers, which you can read about here. We'll begin running this test on Thursday this week.

Like we said in the blog, here's what we'll be looking at in the test:

How do readers interact with the new headers? We'll look at the number of clicks on header links, as well as how many people use the new headers vs the old ones. What do editors think of the new design? We'll gather feedback and interaction data from you, ask follow-up questions, and do our best to understand your needs. We want a design that works well for everyone.

We want help from you and your community in figuring out if we got it right or what potential areas for improvement might be. Feel free to comment on both the reader and editor side of the header designs. We especially want to know what you think as an editor. Please leave any feedback for me here on this thread.

You are also welcome to share this information with your community, that way they are aware of the changes that have been made. Springteufel (talk) 20:50, March 20, 2017 (UTC)

ok then. i'll help spread the word once this goes live. videos are apparently live now, i'll put that on the agenda as well. 04:23, March 21, 2017 (UTC)
Great to hear, thanks! Springteufel (talk) 15:44, March 22, 2017 (UTC)

Scott & Sarah Pages

I noticed you reverted my changes on these pages. I'm not sure why because I believe the edits I made are correct. Can we discuss? AnuChemicalCo (talk) 03:08, March 24, 2017 (UTC)

So after looking at the talk page I think I understand why you did what you did. I do believe it should be specified on the page somewhere that it is just about the NPC version of the character otherwise people will confuse it like I did with the playable character.
what part of FOR THE PLAYER CHARACTER, SEE PATHFINDER RYDER plastered at the very top of the pages did you not understand? to clarify, i wasn't asking.

I'm not sure why you're reacting so aggressively. There's no need to get angry, I was very polite in my comments and I feel that you are being rather rude.

Navigation Bar

Hello, I wanted to get your ideas about the top level navigation bar. I saw the blog post from you made regarding this issue and just wanted to make sure I knew what your intentions were before I continued adding content.

Do you wish to replace the game guides, as used for ME1-3, with this Super Walkthrough page? I've already setup a guide page, mission page and it looks like someone setup a combat page too. Do you want those all accessed via the Super Walkthrough page? Do you even want a guide page at all? Do you want the missions page which is used for ME1-3 to also have Andromeda missions on it? Currently the guide, mission and combat pages have no way to be accessed via the top level navigation bar, is that your intent?

I'm interested to hear your thoughts when you are able to respond. AnuChemicalCo (talk) 01:40, March 25, 2017 (UTC)

Most of my questions above have already been answered by another admin. I would still like to hear your thoughts on the Super Walkthrough page though.

AnuChemicalCo (talk) 18:04, March 26, 2017 (UTC)

apologies for the delay. dealing with some personal stuff.
the guides and the super walkthrough, despite covering similar topics, are still distinct in a way. super walkthrough is part of Fandom's deal with EA for cross-promotion purposes, and i think we're supposed to lay off changes to them until after a few weeks or so.
mind you, my initial pitch for it is to function as a sort of table of contents / portal to the guide and various andromeda concepts. we'll see after a few weeks.

Okiedokie, glad I asked. Also, your signature makes it really hard to read your replies sometimes. Is there something I can do on my end to help with that? hahaAnuChemicalCo (talk) 18:47, March 27, 2017 (UTC)

Moon Template

I was going to add a page for one of the Andromeda moons and noticed that the moon template still automatically lists the galaxy as the Milky Way. It'll do this even if you specify Andromeda in the coding. Is there anyway you could update it? Thanks. (Apologies if you guys have already gotten to this as I noticed this a few days ago but got busy with other stuff and didn't contact you.) TheUnknown285 (talk) 17:03, March 27, 2017 (UTC)

This is something that is on my radar along with the other celestial templates. I'm just making sure that the parameters in those template are still relevant for Andromeda or whether a new template is needed.  teugeneTalkContr 18:21, March 27, 2017 (UTC)

Infobox & navbox naming/categorisation cleanup

Hey, haven't seen you often in recent days but if you have the time, please check out and leave your thoughts on this project.  teugeneTalkContr 10:03, March 28, 2017 (UTC)

New Bureaucrat Needed

Hey, I'm making this post on the other admins walls as well. I'd like some discussion on the forum post I made Forum:New_Bureaucrat_Needed. The wikia currently has no active bureaucrats which means no one that wants to become an admin can apply to do so. Would you be interested in taking that position?
