like Epeli said, leave the main page edits to someone more experienced in that and just add content pages.. but before we start uploading all information we need to make infoboxes for characters,items, weapons, armors.

and we need to get the right colors.. are we going to stick with purple, black and orange??

Yeah I understand. I will add a solid background but it will cover the good artwork piece.  :p

be be sure you make an acc there because you get more privileges by editing stuff.

Ugh, I hate Wikia. Half of the layout is filled with useless crap, unless you log in and change it to monobook layout from personal options, in which case it differs so much from wikia's standard it becomes hard to build pages that look good in both. I'm not too excited about this, but I guess it's better than nothing.

The main page looks horrible, the source code is a mess and the actual content page is located at Template:Main_Contents rather than Underrail_Wiki for some reason I cannot fathom.

Why is pretty much everything in the category namespace? What's going on with half of the links at the front page? Oh god, this is going to be a handful...

Also, permission problems: registered users cannot move pages in namespace category.
For example, http://underrail.wikia.com/wiki/Special:MovePage/Category:Perks - would've moved it to Category:Feats


The main page was a free/demo layout from the wikia community. I thought it would be cool to use and edit it. :p
Most of the stuff is copy/pasta from wasteland2/fallout wikia.
You can check both wikias to see how they organized everything in categories. Because we cant just list all 1000 npc names in the main page.

Thats why we need a category "NPC" where all names are listed in alphabetical order.
The "main_content" template was just a Menu I put in the Main Page with all links to the categories. In this way ppl can edit the main page and move "main_content"  menu around.

Imo we need to put only key words in a list or menu at the main page and then link to a more detailed page with a list and explanation for example; "Perk" key word links to http://underrail.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Perks where we can go further and select one perk from the list.

I hope you guys understand what I mean :p and if you think it looks horrible or that I choose the wrong colors and stuff then help me to edit it! Im not a pro.

Guys dont panic!

I just played around yesterday to see how wikia works. You all are welcome to change everything!
just create an acc there and I will change the permition stuff

I have already one infobox. I will make more infoboxes for characters and we need a page where we can put all templates for easy and fast access.
