Talk:Alignment Mission

From Paragon Wiki Archive
Jump to: navigation, search

Collecting info on Tip Missions, layout still unsure. Possibilities:

  • Each Tip has its own page with sections for the two different alignment choices
  • Each Alignment has it's own page, with sections for all the tip missions of that alignment.
  • All consolidated into Tip Mission page, with the sections following one of the above ideas.

Suggestions, anyone? --Ankhani 20:54, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

I think it would be best to have at least each mission on its own page - or template, perhaps for transclusion. If you try to squeeze them all into one page, the page length is probably going to be atrociously long. Even trying to put all the missions for each alignment in single pages is probably going to be huge. Probably best just to collect those via category tags instead. --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 21:03, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
What Eabrace said. The Tip Mission page should provide a list of links, IMO. Adrey 02:06, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
For the missions, I agree that they should each go on their own page. I don't think they should go into template space though, since that excludes them from searches. Let them stand alone as their own articles. They should definitely be categorized. If we want to keep a list in Tip Mission or elsewhere, we can autogenerate it from the categories using DPL. -- Sekoia 18:57, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
I'm going to start setting those up under Category:Tip Missions Adrey 20:46, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
NOTE: I've changed the structure of the Category. Tip Missions now has two subcategories for Alignment Missions and Morality Missions. --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 20:34, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Mission Listing

I've used DPL to call a listing of the alignment missions available. However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get DPL to recognize the Mission: namespace (namespace=Mission does nothing) without forcibly putting it into the title by replaceintitle= (which is what I've currently done so at least the listing isn't all red links). Halp! ~ AGGE talk/cons 03:57, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

I think that the namespace=Mission code in the DPL just specifies that only results from the Mission namespace should be returned. Since all of the articles in the the category you're checking are in the Mission namespace, you shouldn't see any difference in the returned results with or without it in the call. As for how to make sure the links are pointing to the proper destination in the Mission namespace, I'll have to see if I can find anything about that somewhere out on the net. --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 13:44, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Aha! When you use %TITLE%, the result is just the name of the article without the namespace. If you use %PAGE% instead, it spits out both namespace and title. --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 13:54, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Playing a bit more, I came up with the following block of DPL. You might want to try it and see what you think:
|category=Villain Alignment Missions
--Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 14:05, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Yay. I fiddled with your example a little more and got it displaying nearly exactly how I wanted it. Thanks for the help! I wish there was a way to force the individual columns to be a specific width instead of the whole column block to be some percentage width of the page. But forcing the block to be different sizes at least gets the three lists mostly in the same place, even if the dots don't line up (OCD, hello!). ~ AGGE talk/cons 19:15, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

I've been hoping for a complete list of Alignment and Morality missions, not just the ones which already have their own articles, sorted by level range (and type, of course), so we can easily see what exists in the first place. There doesn't seem such a list anywhere on the Web so far. I was just going to "be bold" and expand the existing listing here, only to find it's automatic. -- Corlagon 15:58, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

You are correct. The current list is automatically generated, so it will only tell you what articles already exist. I would suggest that if you know there are alignment missions missing from the list, the easiest way to add them would be to create the article for them. Now, I'm not saying you would need to completely fill all of the information about the mission into the article. In fact, even if you created the new article with nothing more than its first header (to indicate level range), a {{stub}} template, and category tags (to make it appear in the list on this page), that would at least expand the list.
You could copy one of these blocks of code and edit as appropriate to create each new article:

{{stub|Added to expand list on [[Alignment Mission]] page. Details need to be added.}}
==={{UL|Tip Name (1-50)}}===
[[Category:Hero Alignment Missions]]
[[Category:Vigilante Alignment Missions]]

{{stub|Added to expand list on [[Alignment Mission]] page. Details need to be added.}}
==={{UL|Tip Name (1-50)}}===
[[Category:Villain Alignment Missions]]
[[Category:Rogue Alignment Missions]]

As far as sorting the missions by level range, I've started a thread on the Titan Forums to discuss how best to implement that. You may want to offer any ideas you have there. (Will link discussion in a minute.) --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 18:19, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Tip Levels

Just a note for not-so-late-editing: Tips are on a 10-level span. (20-29,30-39,40-50) You all can make the edits on the level 50 tips in there listed. -- Ankhani 06:03, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

You can make the edits yourself, too ;) It's a wiki! ~ AGGE talk/cons 08:20, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
