I think having a Wiki for this game would be a nice idea. Sure, if we were to have every card in existence on their, it'd take a while. But together, I think we could all progress well in creating one. Heck, we could even link this forum to it in an attempt to gain more members and enlarge the playerbase.

What are your opinions on a UFS Wiki?

(Note: I think one was made in the past but I'm pretty sure it's dropped off the face of the earth by now)

Wow, errr...Bump :/

Dude just relax a bit. Sometimes these forums just die for a few hours at a time.

You have a good idea about using one to possibly gain more players. I think if we were to focus more on an overview of the game than on individual cards it would work out well.

Heh, sorry if I seem a little impatient. I'm pretty relaxed. :)

And yeah, I figured that would be an added bonus...

Add to that a search engine of all the sets so far, since Coolstuffinc doesn't have a good one with the most recent cards and TwoHeadedDragon doesn't update with new ones yet... if it was that easy and Jasco would give an OK I think people would take their time to work one one. I mean, YuGiOh! ahs one, Pokemon has one, I am sure Naruto has one, why shouldn't UFS have one as well?

Haha, I know of the search engine, but thanks nonetheless.

I meant more of an engine similar to it but also contains card tips about it and/or rulings at the same time.

There IS a UFS Wiki, though it is never ever updated.

We really need an Online program for UFS as well so people can play online. That way we all get connected and be able to promote the game even more.

there is a lackey patch, but ya have to go to the lackeyccg forums to get it, VERY useful tool for building decks, there are a few errors to it but that can be worked around(even twoheadeddragon has a lot of errors in it).

Downloaded LackeyCCG and the patch; works like a charm when playing Solitare. Lags a bit but nothing to complain about. Still need to try playing online.

List seems up to date, but might need to chane a bit some of the cards since the filter doesn't pick them up because they have (") in the beginning of the name.

I also set one up without all the blasted ads:http://ufswiki.aslum.net/index.php?title=Main_Page.
I should probably move it to www.ufscentral.com but I just haven't quite gotten around to it. I am pretty sure I have mentioned to Jason, but it bears mentioning again, that I am certainly willing to continue to host it indefinitely and grant whomever he'd like mod/admin privs on it. And I've no intention of adding ads in.

Of course, both wikis have the problem that if no one updates them they don't get updated.
Just saying.

Good goings :D I guess we'd have to get some seriously dedicated members to constantly update it :P

Offtopic: Currently downloading LackyCCG and could someone link me to the UFS patch?

its iirc on the 2nd or 3rd page of their forum, just google "UFS Patch LackeyCCG" and when you see the one to their forum it SHOULD take you to the patch.

Updating a website for a single person is extremely time-consuming for one person, especially with the amount of cards out there...ill update as much as i can when im bored.

As for updating the wiki, iv never really done anything like it before. Here's a test, although it still needs the card links and pics.

I did a quick edit and made the first few cards links. You'll notice they're all red, because I don't have time to actually make pages for them yet. Give it a shot, I'll do some when I get home to show how to do it... is pretty simple, just a little time consuming for what's needed.

Anyone else willing to help out? I'd love to see all of the rules questions get copied to the wiki, but even for two people that is a pretty big task.

I plan to help. Only problem right now is I have to be doing homework int he next few days. but while I have the time I plan to work on it as well.

Being a newb at the game shouldn't really be an issue w/ updating a wiki. At this point most of what is needed is creating individual entries for cards. I need to look and see if there is a way to make a template for it to make things easier. Or just uploading the card pictures to the wiki could be helpful too.

KodiakZero
10-13-2010, 02:08 AM
Uploading different card pics is the big one. We need ShadoWar and Tower of Souls right now. All pics can be found here;

Xenomic
10-13-2010, 02:38 AM
Hrm...and what template exactly are you looking for?

KodiakZero
10-13-2010, 04:05 PM
We want the card info pages to be done a certain way. Unfortunately only aslum knows how to do it correctly.

Xenomic
10-13-2010, 05:10 PM
And is that the "certain way" that you want it done? Or what is the way that you want them done? If the coding's the same as on Wikia like on the FFWiki or Touhou Wiki, then I could possibly see if I can't help or something~

Shinguyi
10-13-2010, 08:14 PM
The pictures for most of the cards are in the LackeyCCG Patch now that I remember. I'm updating the Set file from time to time and adding cards that are being released little by little (unless someone else is already doing it or plans to do it).

Need better and clearer pictures of the Red Horizon Promos though.

KodiakZero
10-13-2010, 09:11 PM
I wouldnt worry about Red Horizon. Just the others :p

Shinguyi
10-13-2010, 09:24 PM
Haha, but I want to try and edit as much as possible from today backwards. :P

Don't know the names of the characters (Except Nehtali and Reese if that was her name ^^; ). I'll just put it TBA in the meantime.

EDIT: Got the Tower of Souls set up; going to be adding pictures and the card effects little by little. If anyone could stat Uploading the card images it would be greatly appreciated (Red Horizon backwards).

If in need of the images, the LackeyCCG UFS Patch has all of them (Except Red Horizon).

Shinguyi
10-14-2010, 04:02 AM
Update: Fixed the List of Licences and Expansions in the UFS Wiki. Also, added Red Horizon to the list with the card images and started the Tower of Souls Page. Only thing left is the card images and the data on the cards.

(Hope you don't mind ShadowDragon but I used the ones you had in your Signature, sorry for not asking you consent first... if it bothers you in any way, I'll take it down as soon as possible)

aslum
10-14-2010, 11:32 AM
Shinguyi, which wiki are you updating? We should probably pick one of the two to maintain. As it stands both are rather lackluster, and if effort is continues to be divided amongst them neither will really be worthwhile. Maybe it's bias on my part, but I do feel that one w/out ads is superior. (;

Shinguyi
10-14-2010, 12:11 PM
I would agree without adds would be superior. So far I've been working on http://ufstcg.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page.

EDIT: Never mind, found it. I'll start updating there. Sad that all that work I did yesterday went for naught... :P

I worked on these pages. let me know if its alright if I change the outlook into something like these:

http://ufstcg.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Licences_and_Expansions_for_UFS
http://ufstcg.wikia.com/wiki/Tower_of_Souls_(SCIV01)
http://ufstcg.wikia.com/wiki/Ivy
http://ufstcg.wikia.com/wiki/Valentine
http://ufstcg.wikia.com/wiki/Red_Horizon_(RH01)

That's how I was working on them; trying to make them more organized. I plan to start using tables soon in the card lists. As soon as you or KodiakZero tell me I can change the outlook I'll start getting to work ASAP. Comments from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

aslum
10-14-2010, 03:19 PM
That sounds fine to me. Honestly as long as it's providing good info I'm jot too concerned how it looks. (:
It might be worth checking, but if the formatting is close you could probably just copy your work, paste it, and then clean up any differences.

Lewk
10-14-2010, 03:25 PM
I'll just throw it out there that I've started doing a "Card of the Week" on this (http://ufstcg.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page) wiki. I'll be updating it every week (obviously) just for a bit of fun. Unless I get suggestions I'll just cycle through the RH Stuff :P

UPDATE: Also did this: http://ufstcg.wikia.com/wiki/Throughout_the_Ages I'll be updating it tomorrow with thurther info and set release dates. I'm kinda failish at spelling, so if anyone could be a total bro and correct some stuff for me, I'd be thankful. :D

Shinguyi
10-14-2010, 04:17 PM
Lewk, I think it's best if we stick with only one Wiki. ^^;
I think the one with Aslum is better because it has no Ads.

Maybe you can think of something out with Aslum and paste it int he opening page? You can find the code in the Wiki you used, and it should be the same n the other one.

aslum
10-14-2010, 04:55 PM
I guess I better get on the ball and migrate.it to ufscentral...

What do you mean? UFS Central?

aslum
10-14-2010, 08:44 PM
Right after the game died, when FFG said they were shutting the forums down, but before we knew Jasco was going to try and bring UFS back I set up a new forums and went ahead and registered ufscentral to make it easy to find.
A quick look shows the last non-spam post was Tag* directing someone over here on Aug 27th, so I think it's time I deleted it and put a link forwarding people here. However I was thinking that it might be a better home for the wiki, I doubt I'll get to it tonight, but I'm going to see about moving the wiki to ufscentral.

*Note:That was awesome, BTW!

Shinguyi
10-14-2010, 09:06 PM
Ah, that sounds like a good idea.

(What was awesome?)

aslum
10-14-2010, 09:19 PM
Tag paying enough attention to see that someone had posted on there who wasn't a spammer...

Shinguyi
10-14-2010, 10:30 PM
Haha, ok, that is awesome. :P

Update: Updated Tower of Souls set and made it more organized. It is now named Tower of Souls (SCIV01) for easier reference.
Update: Created List of Expansions and Licenses for easier search and analysis.
Update: Half way in getting Tower of Souls completely done.

aslum
10-15-2010, 10:07 PM
Holy crap Shinguyi! Looking awesome.
I moved Tower of Souls (SCIV01) to just Tower of Souls so it would be easier to reference, but the old link redirects so shouldn't matter too much.

Shinguyi
10-15-2010, 10:15 PM
Yeah, just saw a few minutes ago.

As for the look, trying to make it as user friendly as possible. Sure eats a lot of time, but I feel content how the ending result is looking like. :P

Good to know you like how it looks so far.

By the way, just noticed that by changing the page from Tower of Souls (SCIV01) to Tower of Souls, I can't create the Tower of Souls card article. ^^;
I'll create it as Tower of Souls (Foundation) then. It could bring problems with cards such as Quest of Souls, Blades of Fury and so on though.

aslum
10-15-2010, 10:26 PM
Hmm, maybe a better solution would be to change the "set" page to Tower_of_souls(set) and the card to Tower_of_souls(card) and then make Tower_of_souls a disambiguation page?

Shinguyi
10-15-2010, 10:28 PM
We can do that, although we would need to keep that in mind when making the other articles as well (at least the ones that have cards named exactly the same way). Probably a redirect as well as you did a few moments ago.

Lewk
10-16-2010, 02:34 PM
Oh, a few days ago I cahnged the front page to have the ehaders in orange boxes with red text (to match the ufs logo). I've also began my 'Card of the Week' thing on the addless one...

Shinguyi
10-16-2010, 04:09 PM
Hehe, yeah. It was pretty noticeable. :p

Someone needs to get Shinguyi a frakking medal! What he's done w/ the wiki is an amazing amount of work!
For ease of finding it I've moved it to http://wiki.ufscentral.com/ (the ufswiki.aslum.net mirror will continue to work into perpetuity). I've also disabled the old temporary forums at ufscentral.

I was reading Armed and Pirated, and it was mentioned that the rules are copy righted by FFG. We own the rights to the game now, please change that if you get a chance.

Thanks

aslum
10-23-2010, 01:03 AM
Done! Feel free to register and edit stuff yourself! ... I did make it so you have to register to make edits (no anonymous edits) so it would be easier to administrate if folks do decide to graffiti it up.

Haha, its alright with me. Someone has to do it and ironically I enjoy working on it. :P

Have been a bit busy this past week, so I'll most likely get Tower of Souls completely up and will start working on ShadoWar this week.

But glad you like how it looks so far. Tryign to make it good enough to be able to compete with the other Wikis around. :P

UPDATE: Tower of Souls finished. Going to start on ShadoWar.

Lewk
10-28-2010, 06:41 AM
Looks like someone updated the CotW for me. Thanks to whoever did that (I've been ill lately)! :)

Shinguyi
10-28-2010, 09:12 AM
It was me, hehe. If by Sunday it hasn't been changed, I'll post a random "good" card from any expansion. :P

UPDATE: ShadoWar Completed! After a small break, I'll start with Quest of Souls.
