Today I uploaded a ton of high quality images.



And I have 44 more. Each a 3x3 grid of 128x128 high quality icons.

But they need to be cut into pieces (396 in total) and I don't know how to automate the task...

Building page changes

With all the new information, the main stats table in all building pages is getting a bit full. With the newest server now in place, I am working on splitting these tables in half using templates designed by mmerlinn. This should mean that the pages are a lot easier to read :)

Dangit!

So someone decided to go and knock over the phone in the garage last Sunday morning just before they took off for the week, and guess what happens.. The internet gets disconnected, and the person that took off for the week is the one who has to fix it. NOOOOOOoooooo. Now I got to start over again on getting the Addicted badge.

IshmuI's Blog!

Hello! I'm IshmuI, I have joined 8realms early on during the first round of closed Beta! I only reached Feudal during my first time around. But now I'm 40% through Renaissance, the leader is right by me, and so are some other players.

I've built my wonders with a lot of thought, although they where a big mystery to me: I. The Great Aqueduct II. St Mark's Basilica III. Gunpowder (Which I now regret)


I'm willing to go far to capture "Easy" Luxuries, and now own 18. I have 4 settlements all very close to my base. I trade resources.

My strategy is using my "Hills" to build buildings on after studying the option to build on hills ;)

Ps. I'm an Ipod winner + My photos are published on 8realm's Facebook page!

I hope you enjoyed.

Marching Band

Marching Season started a little over a weeks ago, and it goes from 8 AM to 5 PM. Needless to say, I've been kept busy! However, My church is doing this thing called Super Week which goes from 6 PM to 9:30 PM, so I've been kept super busy! I'll have less than 30 minutes of down time each day until Thursday of this week, the day after Super Week ends. Fun fun silly willy!

Wiki Updates And A Question

We have introduced a new editor onto this wiki. It has many new and helpful features that will make editing easier and funner (is funner even a word?). Leave your coments, concerns, and complaints on an admins talkpage. That wasn't the question, my question is for some of the users who have made signatures. When I insert mine into a page using {template way}, the link on the second part of it doesn't work. It doesn't redirect me to my talk page. If some one could help, I would be grateful. It is actually now appearing to work. Untill we chat again, happy editing. 17:37, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

It's been a difficult week!

I just finished my first full week of summer band camp! After nearly 50 hours of work in 5 days, saying I'm a little tired would be a gross understatement. At any rate, it's been a lot of fun getting back into shape (getting my chops back, as a brass player, not so fun) and getting through the first movement of the drill already.

So, that's why I haven't been on a whole lot, but today I've had some fun with the Admin tools (e.g. changing our theme around!) and I think I'll help fix up the Wiki a bit tomorrow, too. I also realized you could put GIFs in your signatures (thanks to DarkNITE for the idea), so my signature officially pwns.

Well, I'm tired now, and I think I'm going to go make a program that solves quadratic equations representing …

town hall needs to be as high as possible

and since Jagex has said mood is very important, plaza and its others also need to be as high as possible

you ain't going anywhere without gold so the gold researches, the cabin/apartments and even tax office have a positive effect to this purpose though the tax office may not be a good idea early in game due to low effect

Wow... strange times.

So, the last 24 hours have been weird for me; I switched to my mom's house for the next two weeks, but when I got here, the internet was down. Apparently, the guy next door to us had cut a cable while building his fence, and it broke our interwebs. Because of this terrible misfortune, I've now lost my x days acheivement. 23 days, gone. Just gone. Bloody bastards. :(

Anyway, for some reason I got the 7000 edits badge, even though I'm very sure I didn't have it yesterday, and I'm pretty sure the last time I checked the Wiki edit count it was around 7200. Well, whatever. I've got 1540 points, now, which puts me back into a solid 1st place!

Signature Pages

I found a category set up for signature templates (here). A signature template is helpful (if you know HTML), because it allows for you to make a very complicated signature full of custom fonts, colors, and links to your pages. My template is here, and you'll notice that there are actually two signatures stored in it. This is because you can hide parts of your template from being displayed on pages you put your template on, meaning just because it's on the template page doesn't mean it will show up on the template. At any rate, here's my current signature:

Huge Changes!

Today, from 21:00 to 00:00 (Three hours!) Wazam and I were bend over our computers changing this Wiki around; I'll take you through the changes we made.

  • Many of you know that Browse has been the highest level category on the Wiki for some time now, and that the new categories Content/Wiki and Content/Game represented almost all of the Wiki's information. Well, those three categories have all been DELETED. Or, at least, in reality they were deleted. In effect, however, they were simply renamed (you can't rename a category, you have to make another category, move everything from the old category to the new one, and then delete the old one). Browse is now called 8Realms Wiki, Content/Wiki is now called Wiki Content, and Content/game is now cal…

An Exciting Update

First off, the stuff you guys probably don't care about!

  • I started Beta Round 2 (If you haven't yet, get your key here!) tonight. The interface appears to be more responsive, although, at times, it appears to be much slower. The main place I've noticed the slowness is when trying to exit a window with the little 'x' in the top-right corner of, say, a building you had clicked on.
  • I made a few minor category updates. This mostly involved fixing errors where a category would show up on the same level as another category it's listed in. It's not a big deal when something is in two categories on the same level, for instance Browse>Content/Wiki>Community>Help>Help_Desk versus Browse>Content/Wiki>Community>Forums>Help_Desk. In this case, Help Desk is b…

Sadly, I have run out of time mid "project" (updating and re-formatting all of the pages). I hope this doesn't cause any inconviences, and I am sorry if it does. -Wazam123 02:35, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

Finishing College

Getting towards the end of college has also increased in less online time and I've been stretched on what commitments I could keep going. Unfortunately 8Realms wiki wasn't as high on my priority list as fulfilling other roles I have such as being Stellar Dawn Central's researcher. I do however return very impressed with the work that has gone towards improving the wikia in numerous ways and those who have helped update as the game has progressed.

As 8Realms enters its end game I also feel that I am reaching my end game through the busy period of time I've had, I'm now job hunting but it looks like I could be joining the British Royal Navy, I go for a consultation day in Liverpool on the 19th July.

Stubs and other templates

Hey

Many pages on this wiki are stubs, because the site is quite new. So, when you come on many pages, the first thing you see is: "This is a stub. You can help by expanding it. Wich is a good motivation for people to expand it, but it also ruins the page. Also, some pages are chosen to be featured article, but I partially see this as a curse: The whole page gets ruined (Example). Wouldn't it be better to place all templates on bottom of the page (still visible when you visit the page, but they don't ruin it) so the webpage remains intact.

A Major Change (For Me) ;)

I earned three gold acheivments today, and finally hit 1,000 edits! Of course, those three new badges put me into first place on the Wiki, 200 points above Wazam! (sorry, bro, I'm really not trying to make you feel bad or anything :\ it's just that you're so awesome, it's strange to be ahead of you in anything. You're, like, Gandalf or something; imagine having more badge points than him - he's a wizard!).

There are only two Tech Categories left to be completed: Industrial and Future (I accidentally did Modern before Industrial, lol). I plan on doing them... tomorrow? I might do some today, too. It's only 3:15, here, so I might get bored again. ;)

Anyway, thanks for reading; Good luck pulling ahead again, Gandalf Wazam! I know it's tough for you si…

Since Wazam Apparently Reads These... What I Did Today

Today, I actually did some work from about 10:00-11:00 (P.M. US Central[-6 GMT]). I put a picture for every single spot on the Research/Industrial page, and I'll probably make a page for them all tomorrow.


I also found some slightly disheartening news. I do not consider any of this 'dirt,' I'm not ragging on any of these people, and I'm certainly not complaining about them. I've been having trouble with staying active as well.

My experience with 8Realms

So, I just built my 6th city and I'm 20% through Industrial. Decided it's time to reflect back on how it's been so far :)

I started playing only when the second beta key was emailed (Tokyo). This means I'm hopelessly behind the leaders but doing well in my own neighbourhood. I've been lucky with neighbours, cause many of them are inactive and others either behind or simply friendly. Plenty of easy luxuries around. Only minimal trouble caused by the early bugs but who didn't have that? :D

At first I actually didn't think I'd stay for long, not being a fan of the "build your village" type of games. But some sort of curiosity kept me going. Maybe it was the ages aspect or just the fact that it's a new game and it's a great opportunity to be abl…

A Lack of Focus/Words of Inspiration

The last two or three days, I really haven't done anything. I've also noticed that the top three, and I'm pretty sure the top four ranks on the 'leaderboard' have been completely stagnant in badges. Whether that be because the badges are few and far between (huge jump from 100 to 250), or because of some inactivity, I'm not sure. What I do know, is that the first three days (the three it took to get to #2), I put a lot of focus and effort into the Wiki. Now, after 8 days, I feel that I would give it up if not for the 'Two Weeks on the Wiki' badge.

I've also been kind of wandering through the last week. I'm 92% of the way through Mockingjay (The third book in the Hunger Games series - I don't recommend reading it if your emotions aren't in …

Finished the Research/Renaissance page for now

As the title suggests, I've just finished the Research/Renaissance page for now.

The only thing left to do is make a page for the units made during/just before the Renaissance age, and attatch a link to them.

So , I made a page and put in a link for every Renaissance technology, as well as adding in all applicible links for the Prerequisites and Rewards columns. I also uploaded a copy of the chart used for these pages onto this page: Research tech pages chart template. The name's a bit of a mouthful, but whatever. Use it if you want, rename it, idc. it works for now.

A Helpful Tip or Two

Today, I did a bit of editing - I made the pages for at least half of the Renaissance technologies, and I started using this minor change. I realized people had been converting my paragraphs into charts, and I realized that they were slightly better, even if they did go against a bit of my reasoning for making these pages in the first place (read). Anyway, all new pages that I make will use these charts, because they make getting the information quicker and easier, plus they make putting the information up there much quicker and easier. The charts also bring some amount of standardization into these pages, which, previously, were kind of random with a bunch of similarities in between. I strongly suggest that anyone else who is making techn…

It's all better now!

Yesterday, I made a post informing the Wiki that I had totally screwed up the Level- three categories. (Sub-categories within the two main sub-categories within the biggest category). Turns out it really wasn't a big deal, and Krayfish told me that the default top layer sub-categories had served their purpose , so I could change their names if I wanted.

So, I changed and clarified their names (Content/Wiki and Content/Game), but their purpose is still this same. This should help make the Wiki a tad simpler :)


Zorak Plorak requested that I tell you guys about yesterday when I went to a theme park rather than work on the Wiki. So, here we go ;)

New Category Names (Top Two)

Changing the top two sub-category names allowed by Krayfish (see this).


The top two sub-categories had very confusing names and description, so I cleared them up very nicely.

Content/Wiki is for content not specifically related to the game, e.g. Site Maintenance.

Content/Game is for content specifically about the game, e.g. Gameplay.

Please post you comments/suggestions here; it's been great working with you guys so far!

Revamping Research Organization

I'm sure you've all noticed the sad state of organization for our Research Technologies. Well, I've been working on fixing this. For those who don't know, our catagory system looks like this (focusing on Research)

The highest catagory we have is called 'Browse.' This catagory has two sub-catagories within it called 'Content' and 'Organization.' Organization has 9 sub-catagories, and the one I've made in here is called 'Research.' Research has 2 catagories and one page. The catagory Research Topics and the page Research are both in this catagory. Research is just a page set up as a very broad overview of all the research in the game, and can be referred to as Research-p (Research-page), since it has the same name as Research-catagory (Resear…

Catagories Major Update

I realized that the Catagories were seriosuly messed up. Many catagories were 'blank' or hadn't really been created yet, but were tagged in articles. I tracked down where these catagories were coming from, removed some unnecessary ones that were accidentally 'made' by editors that really didn't know what they were doing, and I officially made many catagories that made sence to have.

In case you didn't know:

a) A catagory can be made by simply 'tagging' it at the bottom of a page, and then following the link to the blank page. Once you write something about it in the description area and it has at least one page that it's linked to, it becomes a fully-fledged catagory and the links to it become red, as opposed to orange.

A 'Wonder' of a project

I just added around 30 pages to the Wiki... Previously we had the wonders filled out for the first two ages. I added a page, or checked to make sure that the page had a basic amount of information on it, for every wonder in the next 5 ages.

I earned three medium badges during this massive project, jumping me from the #7 Wiki editor, to the #2 slot. One of those badges was the 'Caffinated' award, which only Wazam and I have.
