  • Hi Enodoc.

    Apologies for how long it has taken but I have finally finished clearing out the Fable Series Gallery. This can now be re-purposed or deleted as you see fit.

    It took longer than expected as I also tried to ensure that every image I removed from the page was added elsewhere if it was of a high quality or was relevant to an existing article.

    Anyway with my exams out of the way once again I should be able to get onto carrying on with the Image Categorization project once more.

    Let me know if there is anything else you'd like me to do!

  • The tabs on the Fable III page are a bit messed up. I looked up the solution http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help_talk:Tabber#Tabber_Issue:_Overlapping

    It appears only that an admin can edit this. If you could that would be awesome!

    • Which solution did you prefer out of the three that were there? Of course another alternative would be to not include the LCE box art in the infobox at all, and to put it in the LCE section, which would probably make more sense. --Enodoc(Talk) (User Space) 12:48, July 9, 2017 (UTC)

      For me personally, I think this method is best:
      Capture







      But as long as the overlapping is gone, I'm ok with any method.

      EDIT: Didn't know that was an LCE section! I'll just remove it then.

  • I'm not really sure if it matters all that much, but could you delete this picture?

    I uploaded a better quailty photo to the wiki.

  • I got the email saying you changed the Hero of Bower Lake back to the Hero of Bowerstone. I will once again point out that not once during the game is the hero referred to as the Hero of Bowerstone. And it is just a name given by the fans. I understand that it should be included, however, as the real name of the hero is the Hero of Bower Lake as it was given to him by the creators of Fable it should be the main name. Wiki is for informing people and the Wiki is currently giving the wrong information. Everyone I ask says the hero of Bowerstone, and I have to keep reminding them that they are wrong. That is why I changed it. Most people will not want to change it because they have always seen the hero as the Hero of Bowerstone. The wiki is needed to inform the people of the right stuff, not the stuff they want to know.

  • Hello! I'm Wowa, and I'm representing Fandom's Vanguard team. We're users who volunteer to help communities adopt to new technologies and features, like content portability. We've identified your community as a high priority for introducing the Portable Infobox tool, which has a lot of benefits for your community. Rather than get into all of the metrics and numbers (though I can present some of those if you're interested), I'll keep it simple. I'd like upgrade the Infobox templates themselves so that they can be accessible on any current and future platform. Maintaining them if you want to make changes should be very simple.

    I've added drafts for all of your current infoboxes which you can modify or approve early if you'd like. I've put the styling here. Here's a full list of all the drafts:

    Everything should work properly as set up, so if we don't hear back from you, we'll assume there were no problems and will come back and approve the work as-is on or after March 10.

    Also, if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. Thanks!

      has the community come to a decision yet?

      Best regards,

    • I agree with Enodoc about us not using Wiki explicit code just for the sake of portability. If it ever becomes clear that tablet and mobile users are having problems, then we could revisit the issue, but at this time I feel we should stick with what we have.

  • Hey there Enodoc.

    So as I was making my way through sorting the images on the Wiki I've encountered quite a few "unused" images. Many of these are images of varying content and quality which only appear on the Fable Series Gallery page.

    I was wondering if you had any ideas as to what to do with them and how best to categorise these, if at all? I'm kinda at a lost on where to put them haha

    Thanks!

    • Hi Enodoc. Been a little while since starting on the Fable Series Gallery and I've nearly cleared it now.

      Just to let you know that Enobot has tagged some images which are protected (Wiki.png is an example).

      Not sure what I can do about those but I will leave it with you and let me know what you'd like done with them.

      Thanks!

  • Hi again Enodoc.

    So after a little editing and tinkering around I have confused myself.

    Looking at the Fable quests the second main quest is listed as Melee Combat Test followed by Guild Training. This is the same order as in the game so no problems there. My confusion arises from the order the events take place and how they are listed on the Wiki.

    Firstly, the Demon Door Run quest is available prior to starting Melee Combat Test. After completing this quest the Guildmaster offers you the choice of helping the servants (the Four Apples becomes available) or having an early night where a time skip occurs and Guild Training begins.

    The problem is that the Guild Training page states that Childhood training (as well as the 2 side quests) occurs after Melee Combat Test and the time skip but this isn't correct.

    It appears to me that this situation has arisen because Childhood training isn't counted as a quest and was therefore the walkthrough was listed under Guild Training despite taking place prior to the time skip.

    So to my knowledge the order of events are: Childhood training and Demon Door Run -> Melee Combat Test (and the option of starting Four Apples) -> sleep/time skip -> Guild Training.

    Sorry for all the confusing text but it's hard to explain the order in the game and on here. What I'm asking is what do you think is the best way to deal with this?

    Thanks!

    • Just tidied up the Preceding/Succeeding on Guild Training as well, so now I think everything's consistent.

  • Hi Enodoc. Long time no speak. How are you doing?

    So I have recently acquired the first Fable game on the original Xbox (bought for £2 at a second-hand shop!) which has sparked my interest in the game and naturally I have tried to come back and add to the older articles here at the Wiki.

    In my little venture I have found that none main quests (such as Silver, Bronze and side quests) in Fable aren't listed in the Fable Quests Navbox. I was wondering if we should add them in for completeness? I'd be more than happy to do it myself and send you the final edit if that is what you'd prefer.

      Loading editor
    • Hey there! Not bad, how are you?

      Yeah, absolutely. Feel free to completely overhaul {{Quests}}, or tweak it as much as you like. Agreed that it should have all quests in it, rather than just some.

      Here's {{Quests (Fable II)}} and {{Quests (Fable III)}} for comparison.

    • I'm good, thanks! What are you doing these days? Been years since I last asked haha.

      I'm sorry about the random times when I am here and when I'm away. A lot of things have changed since I started here almost 6 years ago: I've moved home and school, finished high school and college, and now I'm at uni! I guess you could say that life has gone on but I still proudly find myself back here editing again :D

      Anyway onto the topic at hand. Thank you again for allowing me to change the template. I have now tinkered with it so it looks more like the newer Fable II and III Quest Navboxes. Well hopefully it's not broken anything! Never done this before.

      As of note I have also included "Fable Anniversary" now but I'm not totally sure about that because many of the Fable: TLC articles still don't have Anniversary on the page yet (including the Quests page)...

      Could you have a look and let me know your thoughts, please? :)

        Loading editor
    • Looks good! It's probably not necessary to have Anniversary in the template, as it may cause confusion since all of the first lot of quests are in Anniversary as well. (They're in TLC too, but that distinction is easier to make sense of; we usually consider the TLC stuff to be only the Northern Wastes stuff and not the base-game stuff, but we consider the Anniversary stuff to be all of it.)

        Loading editor
    • I'm glad you like it! Of course feel free to change it anytime if you think it could be improved. And I agree about removing Anniversary in the template. Wasn't quite sure about adding that anyway so I'll remove it now. Thanks!

  • Not been here in 7 years..

    What have I missed?

      Loading editor
    • Quite a lot    :P
      3 new games, 2 new wiki layouts, 4 novels, 3 short stories, drama, intrigue, arguments, and the fall of Lionhead, to name just a few things    :)

      How's it going? You were the lead admin when I started here, right? I think we only overlapped for about 3 months before you disappeared    :)

  • I'm unsure of whether or not you will check back on your Fable Fortune forums thread so I'm pasting my answer here as well.


    "I have extensive knowledge of CCG, but very little knowledge of how wikia actually works. I am definitely eager to contribute though. We surely want to start explaining what's special about Fortune, i.e morality system, Co-op.

    Then we'd need a page for each class, and also for every individual card explaining its effects and overall usefulness/strategy when used in a deck.

    Also might want to add cards of known characters to their base wikia page. Meaning having the Hero of Oakvale card shown on his profile. Lots of work."

    I'm just not exactly sure where to start around here.

      Loading editor
    • Finding somewhere to start is always the hardest part! I've replied on the FF forums, but just in summary, since you know about the workings of CCGs, I think you would be well placed to start giving some details on the Gameplay and Features of Fable Fortune. Once the basics are down and those of us who have never played a CCG have a taste for how it works, we can get into detail on the cards and classes.

      With regards to where to start, in general, check out Community Corner, which has some useful links to other pages.
