Forum index > Server namespace


Do we want to create a unique namespace for servers? Template:ServerInfoRow‎ seems to have been designed to support such a namespace. Since it does not currently exist I removed that functionality for the moment, but it would be easy to replace. -- Heaven's Agent 17:26, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

I figure that's the easiest way to not confuse the server names with actual articles. I'm open to other suggestions though. --Icon class jediknight.png Alianin T C 17:44, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
The only other option I can think of is subpages, and to be honest I'd prefer a namespace in this instance. What are the downsides and/or limitations of creating a Server: namespace? -- Heaven's Agent 18:06, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
It looke dodd the first time I saw it, but it makes sense, when servers can have name as Hyperspace Cannon. On wikipedia this is usually solved by "Hyperspace Cannon (server)". /Glom 18:52, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Any idea how many servers there may be? I'd rather not do a custom namespace if it's only going to have 100 or less pages. -- Wynthyst 19px talk 18:54, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Right now there are 106 servers. Over half are full and this is just the first day with only 4 waves of invites having gone out. I'm sure they'll add more. --Icon class jediknight.png Alianin T C 19:24, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
There are plans to add more servers throughout the early access period. That said, we don't know how many will ultimately be opened, nor do we know how many will be closed post-launch. -- Heaven's Agent 19:27, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
I'd just go with (server) disambiguation for now if needed. Curse flame.png Ausir (talk) 19:28, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. -- Heaven's Agent 19:29, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Server infobox[edit source]

I believe it would be good to implement a basic server infobox. As the server pages are being added, they have little structure, but all contain some basic information. Variables that appear to be appropriate for all would be Name, Type (PvP, PvE, RP, etc), and Open date. This set of variables may be expanded as need arises. -- Wynthyst 19px talk 09:38, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Done. Template:ServerInfoBox --Icon class jediknight.png Alianin T C 17:00, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
