  1. It's happening now. All users who have not given their consent, have been deleted and now look like e.g. "@DeletedUser481". There are lots of them. Fortunately, it's not too late to get your user back (however, this recovery process will not be available forever, do it as soon as possible). Here are the official instructions from Gamepedia: Any EU/EEA users who had not consented prior to these required GDPR activities may now reclaim their accounts: 1. Log out 2. Visit Gamepedia.com 3. Log in there 4. Use the rename credit here: https://www.gamepedia.com/account Your username will then trickle down to the wikis. User pages (owned by non-consenting users) and user profile fields (for non-consenting users) had to be erased to comply with GDPR (they cannot be recovered). Wiki points, contributions, and achievements are saved. If you still have issues after following those instructions, make a ticket by sending current username, old username, and account email to [email protected]

  3. I have posted the following general steps on Discord before. These steps roughly outline how to implement Cargo to a new section of the wiki. Theoretically - we haven't actually done it ever before, so this is a first. I might also have missed a step or two, or got some order wrong, but I hope this gives a general idea of what needs doing. I'll repost them here for better and easier referencing. Decide on the data elements (and their data types) you want to store and present (this might include properties that are not necessarily displayed but also important) List all pages that use this data Decide which pages will "store" the data (usually those that have infoboxes and describe the item in question) and which pages will "display" the data (usually those with overview/summary tables of that data) Decide on the specific layout/presentation of the display tables that shows the data (there might be different scenarioes/presentations/layouts for the different target pages/purposes) Create the templates for the infoboxes; these infoboxes are used for data entry; these templates use Cargo scripts for storing the data Create one Lua script to display the Cargo data; using parameter this Lua script can be made to adjust the layout/presentation of its output - this way, we only need one Lua script instead of multiples Integrate all above in the existing wiki pages Enter all the data using the infoboxes on corresponding wiki pages (if we modifiy existing infobox templates, we might already have the data on the wiki pages)
  4. Your continuous support is highly valued, @Nightstalker21.
  5. Guide: Map Versions

    Sweet! Good job. I know, the map pages on the wiki are terrible out of date. In fact, this is one of the primary areas we are working on. Maybe we could collaborate on this. Check out: https://squad.gamepedia.com/WP_-_Introduce_Cargo_to_Maps Still work-in-progress, but hopefully heading in the right direction. The more help we get, the better.
  6. On 12 December 2018 it was announced that Fandom, another popular wiki-site also known as Wikia, has bought Curse Media from its current owner Twitch. Curse Media owns Gamepedia, which is our host of the Squad Wiki. What does this mean for you? For the near future, nothing. Everything continues as usual. If you are a resident of the European Union and European Economic Area (EEA), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires companies by law to ask for user consent before doing new stuff to your personal user data - in this case, handing your data and account over to Fandom and changing its use to their terms and conditions. You probably have already received an email or a pop-up on the Gamepedia websitse asking for your consent. If you give your consent, your data will be transfered to Fandom at some (still unknown) date and you can continue using Gamepedia as usual. If you do not give your consent, your user data and account will be deleted. You will have to create a new user. Your edits on the Squad Wiki will be attributed to "user deleted". If you live outside the EU, your personal user data will be moved to Fandom without asking you - because in your legal system there is no legal requirement to ask you for permission. What will happen in the long-term future to the Squad Wiki? Of course, it will continue to exist and prosper, but we don't know on which platform or under which conditions. No one knows today, even Gamepedia staff do not know. Fandom has 300,000 wikis, many of which overlap with Gamepedia’s 2,200 and there are plans for creating synergies. The first transfers of wikis from one site to another have already happened. But Gamepedia staff have assured us this will only happen after intensive discussion with the wiki community and the active wiki admins. The Gamepedia staff has always been very honest, kind and supportive and we can hope we will continue working with them. If all of this sounds familiar, it's probably because of recent memories when Twitch has bought Curse Media two years ago and you were asked to consent to the merging of your Twitch account with your Gamepedia account. Now, Twitch has sold Curse Media to Fandom. According to current information from Fandom, all your existing relationship with Twitch in connection with other Twitch Services are not impacted at all.

  7. New Website Launch

    Bloody browsers.
  8. New Website Launch

    Sweet! Looks ace! No ping on Discord on this? Seems news-worthy = ping-worthy. By the way, the links posted on the Official and Modding Discords to the current Wrench are broken. ^ @Gatzby I love the integration with the Squad Wiki! Makes me super happy.
  9. We are making some progress. Check out: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Learning_Cargo https://squad.gamepedia.com/WP_-_Introduce_Cargo_to_Maps
  10. Thanks for the feedback, guys.
  11. We will be redesigning all the map pages on the Squad Wiki and also make them database-driven using Cargo and Lua scripts. We want to know from you if, and why, the "respawn yes/no" for vehicle assets is important or not. You can also look at one example map: Belaya If you want to help us with the layout and design of the new pages, go to the Wiki Map design contest.
  12. Scoreboard - what does it mean

    Have a look at this, @GatorC210: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Score#Scoreboard_during_the_match
  13. We now have both Cargo and Scribunto enabled for the Squad Wiki. I have started experimenting with both of them. Check out our Cargo and Scribunto learning pages. I'll post another status update once I have more progress. We'll try to apply Cargo and Scribunto to the Maps pages first and see how this goes.
  14. July 2018 Recap

    Sweet. Cannot wait for v12.
  15. I'd like to give specific examples of what we are trying to achieve. Below are types of data we want to export from Squad's SDK and then import to the wiki and use it on the following pages/tables/data. Looking at these complex data types and our many tables and infoboxes, I am afraid this will become fairly complicated, so choosing the right tool to do the job is important. I am not sure if Cargo would be up for the job or we need something more powerful like Scribunto. Map data and images Map hi-res images with grids plus showing each layout (with flags and flag names; maybe also with vehicle spawns for BOTH teams) for each game mode, list factions per layout, list of assets per layout, list of flag names per layout, starting tickets for each team per layout). Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Gorodok Plenty more: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Maps See also https://squad.gamepedia.com/WP_-_Helpful_info_for_server_admins#Idea_1:_maps_overview_for_map_rotation Vehicle stats List of all vehicles, ideally which faction are using them. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Vehicles Respawn timer, number of passengers, ticket costs, supply capacity, in the future: crewkit required "yes/no"). Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Category:Vehicle_infosheets Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Tickets#Assets_ticket_costs Weapon stats List of all weapons and their correct names. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Weapons Which weapon is used by which faction and which kit. Not sure if that is easily possible to extract or even automatically generate on the wiki. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/British_Army#Kits_and_equipment Weapon magazine capacity. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/AK-74M. Plenty of weapons https://squad.gamepedia.com/Category:Weapons. Weapon magazine count and equipment count (e.g. bandages) per kit per faction. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/British_Army#Kits_and_equipment Weapon caliber for all weapons. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/AK-74M Deployable stats Constructions points for deployables. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Sandbags. Plenty more: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Category:Deployables Kit stats Kit restriction per faction. Not sure if that is easily possible to extract or even automatically generate on the wiki. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Kit_Role_Selection#Faction-based_kit_restrictions Game modes/general stats General ticket costs. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Tickets#Common_ticket_costs Game mode specific ticket costs. Not sure if that is easily possible to extract or even automatically generate on the wiki. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Advance_and_Secure#Mechanics Score. Example: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Score
