Main Page Spiff

Hey Bunnyboi,

Thanks for all of the hard work you're doing on the wiki! With Tropico 5 close to release, I thought I'd make some updates to the main page's design -- just a few flourishes here and there. I'm also going to add a portal for Tropico 5 similar to the one's in place for 3 and 4. Let me know if you have any issues with the changes I make!

Thanks,

Tropico 5 Wishlist

The page is becoming way too large to the point where Firefox fezzes on me for a minute. Perhaps the sections can be put into collapsible tables or subpages can be made? Snipergod (talk) 01:31, April 25, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Bunnyboi,

I pre-ordered Tropico 5 and have played it for a bit and I would like to help out with constructing some of the articles that are sure to be needed for its page. However I haven't edited much on the wiki and therefore do not have much skill in creating pages and doing all those fancy fact profile...things.... (such as those onthe buildings pages which contain data such as cost and upkeep, etc.) and tables and that kind of thing. I also do not know how to upload pictures onto the wiki. I have Tropico 5 on Steam so do you know if it is possible for me to take screenshots on Steam and then somehow copy those onto the wiki? Any other tips and advice you could give would be most appreciated as I would really like to contribute to the information on Tropico 5. 

Viva La Tropico!

Navigation Menu

What do you think of giving the top Navigation Menu an update? Give it a top-level category per-game, etc.

I've done a little bit with the Warlock wikia, and mocked up a sample, which could probably still use more refining, but it's a start. It could be made a lot more dynamic if the categories were broken down per-game (like instead of Category:Foreign_Power have a Category:Foreign_Power (Tropico 4) and Category:Foreign_Power (Tropico 5) etc. I don't want to anger anyone by blazing through and making a mountain of changes that aren't wanted, though.

If you want to check out a possible Nav Menu, grab the source here and put it in to the Contribute-->Edit Wiki Navigation, and Preview it.

Information about Building Modifications

Hey Bunnyboi,

is there a reason you deleted the information about Free Wi-Fi edict from Hacienda and Historic Inn, or was this a mistake?

Darthcast (talk) 19:48, July 11, 2014 (UTC)

The Free Wi-Fi edict increases the quality of all housing and accommodation buildings. We don't want to list the edicts effect on every relevant page. We only do that for edicts with smaller, more specific focuses, like Prohibition. -- Conejito (talk) 23:51, July 11, 2014 (UTC)

HI Bunnyboi!

Hello Bunnyboi. I'm a new user of the Tropico Wiki, and my contributions so far, as you may have noticed, comprise of corrections to tourist building statistics and the "additional information" sections to the farm and bio farm pages. I just recently bought Tropico 4 from the Steam Summer Sale, and I've become dangerously addicted to the game :) As you may have noticed, I'm a bit of a geek for games, which means that I freaked out when I saw that there were no stats on the farm pages, so I decided to conduct experiments to find all those numbers. What saddens me is that, as evidenced on many of the Tropico Wiki pages, not everyone really gets in to the game so much, and that they don't bother to experiment and post their findings. Well, I hope to change that a bit, and I hope that you do so too. But from seeing the recent Wiki activiy, I can tell your main focus is on TR5, which doesn't bother me at all. Thanks for your message, and sorry if I was a bit untimely with replying to it. Thanks.

Captain vs Pirate King pages

I had meant to create the Pirate King page immediately after the removal of its info from the Captain page, but was delayed. The info I had previously removed has been placed on the Pirate King page. In addition, as noted in the talk pages of each article, there are a couple of naming difference for two of the captains which is helped with separate articles.

If you've no objections I would like to have the Captains page reverted to my last edit to eliminate redundancy. Thanks. Russ3Z (talk) 18:11, July 21, 2014 (UTC)

This is fine. Next time, though, make the new page to log the information on before removing it from the old one. --Conejito (talk) 23:09, July 21, 2014 (UTC)
Righto. Thanks. Russ3Z (talk) 00:08, July 22, 2014 (UTC)

Leaving

I've edited many wikis but have never yet seen such a level of heavy-handedness as displayed in your wholesale deletion of useful information. I find myself left with no desire to contribute in such an environment, and will no longer make edits. Russ3Z (talk) 13:51, August 1, 2014 (UTC)

No information was deleted; it was all consolidated on the Edicts page for Tropico 2. Notice how no other game in the series has individual articles for every single edict and trait.--Conejito (talk) 13:54, August 1, 2014 (UTC)

Help Needed

Is there a way to add the contributions I did before under 98.165.162.224 I had an account to this account ? --Jeaserstrife (talk) 16:20, June 10, 2016 (UTC)

I don't think there is, no. -- Conejito (talk) 04:51, June 15, 2016 (UTC)

Hey Bunnyboi, it's been a while since I last visited this wiki. Is it only on my end or are infoboxes broken? they don't show their image headers when they're used but they do show all remaining empty rows.

I think someone may have edited the infobox template. I'll need to browse through the history tomorrow, see if I can't fix what's up.--Conejito (talk) 07:11, June 20, 2016 (UTC)
It looks like an eager contributor changed the infobox template. I think I have it set back to normal.--Conejito (talk) 18:20, June 20, 2016 (UTC)

Mobile View

Hello. We recently received a message from somebody who was reading your site on a mobile device and was concerned that he could see broken code on your pages instead of infoboxes. You can see how broken it is here. Have you considered updating to the new mobile-friendly portable infoboxes? They are fairly easy to create and it would make your wiki a lot more helpful to mobile visitors. I'd be happy answer questions if you have them about how to get them set up, or you could always talk to users on the Community Central forums who have experience with converting the infoboxes and may be able to help. -- Wendy (talk 05:53, December 30, 2016 (UTC)

Tabbed pages

I notice that a few pages were changed to use tabs when the article spans multiple games. I can see some potential pros and cons to this and would like to get some further opinions on it.

Pros:

  1. Fewer overall pages on the wiki
  2. As above, less need for Redirect pages
  3. Easy comparison of the article subject between different game versions

Cons:

  1. Can't link to an individual tab
  2. Confusion with anchor usage if multiple tabs have the same section heading names
  3. User confusion if clicking a link that is expected to go to a specific game's version
  4. Excessive category buildup

I'm sure there are other points to be made on either side and I'd be interested to hear them. Meanwhile, is there as of now any consensus on whether we wish to migrate more pages to tabbed versions, or go back to standard pages? Currently my inclination is towards the standard format, for reasons of both organization and familiarity. Russ3Z (talk) 21:06, February 7, 2017 (UTC)

I want to migrate to tabbed version, to keep the number of pages and redirects down, but I've been a little hesitant after the first few tries. The biggest issue I've seen with it is being unable to link individual tabs. That really lowers how useful they'd be for organizing. --Conejito (talk) 01:00, February 8, 2017 (UTC)
Also worth noting that tabs do not work on mobile devices, either. Since infoboxes were switched to the new portable format for that very reason, it probably doesn't make sense to use the tabs unless/until that functionality can be arranged. Russ3Z (talk) 01:56, February 8, 2017 (UTC)
Then until tabs can be individually linked to and be seen on mobile devices, let's switch the tabbed pages back into their own articles.--Conejito (talk) 07:01, February 8, 2017 (UTC)

Greetings, Commandante

Hey, I'm back from the Tropico 4 days (new account, too dumb a story to publicly admit to), just letting you know I'll be on deck for the inevitable rush of stuff when 6 drops (even if Uni wants to make a nuisance).

And now I'm going to pretend the main reason I ever opened the editor wasn't, in fact, to suggest that you could make a YouTube channel covering Tropico and similar titles (all zero of them at current, it feels) (possibly using it as a catalyst for political discourse) to potentially make some money on the side, and that I could totally help you manage it (*wink*). Because I'm fully aware demand appears low for such things and no one would ever go for that idea. 

Regardless, [metaphorically] see you in '18. Yours confusingly, RTak12 (talk) 06:15, September 1, 2017 (UTC)

Special Tropico 6 Project

Hello there!

I'm Will (AKA MisterWoodhouse). I'm the Community Manager for Gamepedia and I'm also helping out with some special gaming projects here at Fandom now too. I would love to talk to you and some of the other top Tropico wiki editors about some exciting plans surrounding Tropico 6 and the wiki. Do you have a Discord we can discuss on?

Blocking question

Hi Bunnyboi,

I'm part of Fandom's Community Suport Team, and I've been asked to look in to try to resolve a blocking issue.  You blocked ThundermarkPerun (as is your right as an admin of course). Can I ask why he was originally blocked? I realize his other account and some IPs were blocked as sockpuppets, but I'm interested in why he was blocked the first time.  Many thanks -- Sannse (help forum | blog) 16:29, April 9, 2019 (UTC)

Sorry about the wait, I've been dealing with some serious offline matters inbetween trying to keep the wikia free of harassment. The guy's been here about a week now, trying to block evade so he can post more alt-right shit to users. Unfortunately, there's not much the community can do against him except clear it up and block him.--Conejito (talk) 07:33, April 11, 2019 (UTC)
I'm curious, what alt-right stuff did he post? I don't see anything in his contibs -- Sannse (help forum | blog) 17:13, April 11, 2019 (UTC)
I've been deleting it after each block. It was all just typical jokes about Auschwitz and helicopters, aimed at other users in the comment section.--Conejito (talk) 18:00, April 11, 2019 (UTC)
Ouch, thanks for satisfying my curiosity :) -- Sannse (help forum | blog) 19:21, April 11, 2019 (UTC)

Tropico 3 question

Any timeline for merging the Portal:Tropico 3 info into mainspace? Jade Emperor (talk) 12:29, November 1, 2019 (UTC)

  • I prefer the method of tab use like Oil Well rather then creating extra pages for same named buildings like Oil Well (Tropico 6), but dislike grouping T3 with T4 together. T3 buildings should have there own info area(tab). Jade Emperor (talk) 04:42, November 3, 2019 (UTC)
Sorry about the delay; a housemate has been having a traumatic episode and I haven't been able to answer any messages. As far as the portals were concerned, I've been considering simply deleting them. But I'd like to merge anything particular useful with the main page. -- Conejito (talk) 21:46, November 6, 2019 (UTC)
Hey, I will try to get a good lookover of the portal pages soon. Presently, I'm working on aTabview idea as the tabber isn't mobile friendly. Also working on T3 Buildings Template for separating T3 from T4 pages/info.
For the present, I would like to clean up the redirects. I would use 'WhatLinkHere' and feed you a list of redirects to delete after any necessary editing; that's the method we used at Thief's wiki.
Update, Jr Mime just gave me 'Content moderator' if that's alright with you.Jade Emperor (talk) 22:23, November 6, 2019 (UTC)
Looked over the portals and agree they(T3 & T4) should be deleted. Navboxes and Mainpage can take care of whatever was intended. Let me know if you want me to do the deletes. Jade Emperor (talk) 18:13, November 9, 2019 (UTC)

Discussions question

It seems it(forums) have been removed; which is OK(imo) since it doesn't look as it was used much. Do you want me to mark the pages for deletion, delete them, let you take care of them or perhaps you could ask the community for input about re-enabling discussions?Jade Emperor (talk) 02:38, November 8, 2019 (UTC)

Re: Re: Lack of an Active Admin

I'll still be around, just not daily, doing things for T3..., not much difference other then the redirect page deletions which will have to be done by you now. I got my system to make them as clean as possible.Jade Emperor (talk) 08:23, December 19, 2019 (UTC)

redirect deletion, please

Please delete the redirect 'Diplomatic Ministry' so a disambiguation page can be created pointing towards T1, T3 and T4equivalants.Jade Emperor (talk) 08:11, December 29, 2019 (UTC)

Got it changed. --Conejito (talk) 20:59, December 29, 2019 (UTC)

Categories

Alright if I reorganize the categories Expansion/DLC/… seems overboard to me. I am thinking moving the DLC(Tropico #) up A level and eventually deleting 'DLC'.

Forgot to sign this.Jade Emperor (talk) 21:11, January 7, 2020 (UTC)

I have thought out changing the 'Tropico 3' categorization. In order to alleviate the high page count of about 93 in the category I am thinking of breaking them down into the T3 Game Menu system as exampled on Buildings (Tropico 3) page. The special categories of 'Unique' and 'Absolute Power' as listed on the Template:Buildings T3 would also fall under the Category:Buildings (Tropico 3) page as additional listing categories. Balloon Ride is an example of where I am heading. If you prefer the old system, it is easy enough for me to fix at this point; so I await your decision while I start adding T3 Attractions.Jade Emperor (talk) 10:31, February 2, 2020 (UTC)

Further thoughts on the subject, (pseudo cat tree)
Tropico 1 - . . . . . . . . -Tourism building(T1) & Tourism accommodation(T1)

Tropico 3 - . . . . . . . . -Tourism building(T3) & Tourism accommodation(T3)

Tropico 4 ---Tourism---Tourism building(T4) & Tourism accommodation(T4)

Tropico 5 - . . . . . . . . -Tourism building(T5) & Tourism accommodation(T5)

Tropico 6 - . . . . . . . . -Tourism building(T6) & Tourism accommodation(T6)

Category:Tourism = 5 Tourist types, Rating (Tropico #), +whatever isn't covered by sub-categorization.

This would dissolve a number of over-categorization: Tourist & 5 (tourist types) Tourism categories. Eventually, the 5 Buildings (Tropico #) could also be dissolved, but for now I am concentrating on just T3 categorization.

Example:
Zoo (Tropico 3) would have Attraction building(T3) & Tourism building(T3)
while
Zoo (Tropico 4) would have Entertainment building(T4) & Tourism building(T4)

Jade Emperor (talk) 14:05, February 7, 2020 (UTC)

ps: I took the liberty of recategorizing Category:Disasters as another example of where I am heading.

Tropico Series Template

I left a comment at Template_talk:Tropico_Series; Did as much updating as my memory allowed.Jade Emperor (talk) 21:11, January 7, 2020 (UTC)

Template:Buildings T1

What is your preference for the T1 buildings? I could re-style it similar to T3 without changing the data structure or leave it in it's present format.

Jade Emperor (talk) 17:59, February 14, 2020 (UTC)

Permission to alter job images

I started implementing the 'gallery tag' and as you can see from Attendant the images for T4 are too large, IMO. I seek your permission to alter the images you uploaded as images are not covered under the 'CC-BY-SA'. A simple yes or no is required, along with any text you wish included in the reasoning of the file page.

Jade Emperor (talk) 23:09, February 23, 2020 (UTC)

Tropico 3 message logs for missions

While adding to the El Acantilado messages I realized I was wasting time as a typist. Im thinking to make it less time consuming I will just screenshot them and crop the images down. Save to whatever format has a smaller file size and put them into a collapsable wikitable.

I'll probably be reformating the exist two T3 message logs as the date is more relevant then some arbitrary text number.

Achievements (Tropico 3)

You deleted this page 8 years ago. Yet, the disambiguation page for Achievements has a red link. I could recreate the page with simple instructions for a player to read the ingame list; I have no intention of creating a T5-like page, what a time-waster.

Top-level category

Fandom strongly recommends that the pages in Category:Browse be moved to Category:Tropico Wiki. In the past, Browse was standard, but more recent research has revealed non-descriptive words for top-level category names are really bad for search engine optimization, and the sitename should be used instead.
