There is another wiki that is covering this game: https://azur-lane.fandom.com and I would like to explore the possibility of merging the two wikis. Have you had any interaction with the other wiki, or do you have any thoughts about a merge?
Note: No merger will take place if both communities don't agree to it.
The advantages of becoming one community working together are clear: By working together, all fans of Azur Lane could build a resource on the game more effectively, keep it up-to-date more easily, and players would no longer be confused as to which site they should turn to for information.
Just wanted to thank you for taking over the wiki, There was only about three of us at the start and we all kind of lost interest in the game a while back but it's nice to see that someone capable has taken over and done a good job of keeping the wiki properly updated. I know I appreciate it, and I hope those who use the wiki do too.
Hello, for my own curiosity's sake I've been gathering some data on the coin and medal shops. I've noticed that some of the information about both are out of date. Some new things have been added to both and some of the prices for things in the coin shop have changed. If you'd like I can share some of my findings with you. Thanks
Hello! We at Fandom have confirmed that User:Ideafactoryintl belongs to Idea Factory International, makers of Azur Lane, so we added the "Authenticated" frame to the avatar and gave admin rights on this wiki, as requested. I encourage you to introduce yourself when you get a chance. :)
As part of your site remodeling, it would be a good time to convert to the newer Portable Infoboxes. They work much better on mobile devices, and almost 60% of your page views come from mobile devices. Fandom has a team of people that help with portability, so let me know if you'd like me to put you in touch with them, or if you have any questions. —Moviesign (talk) 20:40, May 20, 2019 (UTC)
Maybe I haven't looked enough but the example cases for converting infoboxes into portables infoboxes appears to only apply when the infobox isn't designed to take up the whole page.
Also, if I'm understanding this correctly, all the formatting for portable infoboxes has to be done with css. Which normally I don't mind, but accessing wikia page elements seems extremely cumbersome, especially with all the one-off style templates this wikia uses.
Finally, is it possible to see the ratio of the types of devices generating pages views, as I haven't found this statistic.
Yes, typically infoboxes do not take up the full width of the page (they can, but it is not recommended). The thinner box is the best layout for mobile viewing so users can scroll vertically and not miss anything. I think your infoboxes would convert fairly easily, but there is the issue that most of your ship pages have no text on them, which is very bad for discoverability by search engines. Are there not any descriptions, strategy, or other game information about these ships that isn't just hard data or numbers? Just curious.
What is an example of a one-off style template? The PIs have a way of doing "variations on a theme" so that you can have CSS that is common for all infoboxes and then alter it based on some infobox parameter.
Hi! My name is Moviesign, and I’m the Fandom Wiki Manager for Azur Lane Wiki. I am here to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. If you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, styling, templates, etc., please contact me on my message wall / talk page.
Here are some handy links for help with wiki features:
Which footers should be at the bottom of ship pages? Some pages have the ship's classification list template and the ship list template (e.g., Juneau). Some pages have their ship's classification list template and their nation's list template, but not the ship list template (e.g., Gneisenau). Thoughts?
