Lore section started

We now have a new custom namespace to use for Eternal lore content! Pages about the game's story, its characters and the locations in Myria can now be created with the 'Lore:' prefix in their titles (for example, 'Lore:Argenport").

The goal of the new namespace is to keep story content distinguishable from the primarily functional content we've created so far. The current flavor text snippets on card pages are great, and will hopefully interest users in checking out more in-depth story articles.

I renamed the previous 'Lore' stub article to 'Lore:The Gunslinger's Guide to Myria' (redirected from 'Lore:Main') to use as a hub/portal page for Lore content.

Anyone wanting to create lore articles can jump right in, we'll work on creating consistent formatting and style as we go. Try to keep them based on canon lore, and cite sources where you can. Feel free to speculate in the pages' comments or Talk pages.

Card pages complete! Whats next?

As far as I know, we should now have card pages for all player-collectible cards and any noncollectible 'token' cards that players can use (current through 'The Fall of Argenport' as of this post). There's always the chance a few were missed by mistake, so add missing pages if you find them (or at least post about it here or on an active editor's wall) and feel free to clean up any errors.

So where do we go from here? Card pages' strategy sections can always be created and added to, but past that what would we like to see done on this wiki? Leave your ideas and feedback in the comments!

Crafting costs in card infoboxes?

Does it make sense to add crafting costs to card infoboxes?
All the information is already provided by the "rarity" attribute in the template. You just have to populate a few more table cells. It would mean less data entry for people creating new card pages and it would automatically update old card pages that don't have the data.
Thoughts?

Wiki Features

So since Eternal seems to be starting to kick off again, I think we should turn on a couple of features for the wikia (mainly looking for Nightsavior's approval, but anyone can chime in)
3 features I want to talk about are: Blogs, Mandatory sign ins and Achievements.
-Firstly
To start off with, Blogs. I turned them on and begen experimenting with them.
More specifically blog lists: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Blogs/Bloglist
Blog Lists let you display blogs by category. So we could use it potentially to display and update information, there's an example in my Sandbox: http://eternalcardgame.wikia.com/wiki/User:Yumyum36/Sandbox
-Secondly
Mandatory singing in. I noticed a bunch of anonymous edits recently, and I was wondering if by mandatory signing in we could get more people logging in. There's something called "gaming footers" many different games have at the bottom of their wikias. See here: http://gaming.wikia.com/wiki/Introducing_New_Gaming_Footers
I don't think it'd be hard to get into the card game one as long as we meet the requirements due to it having fewer wikias than most of the footers, but if we get in, it could positively affect traffic coming here from other wikias, and it could get other card game fans to hear about the game.
The requirements to get in are; At least 100 pages, A Wordmark, and a Background.
We meet all 3 of these, but they regularly deny/remove people for inactive communities, so we should try to get at least 5 or so members who come on every so often. (That's what the MTG wikia has).
-Thirdly
I think achievements are pretty fun on wikia, I want to implement these, but not before the game comes out or we get a ton of contributors here.

Useful Templates

A couple templates I've been using on the wikia. Will update as needed, just need a place to put these.
-Card : Displays a card image, with a link to the card page. Really simple, but repetitive. Code is {{Card|CARDNAME}}
-Card3 : Used to put 3 cards in a row. Needed for formatting. Can also show 1 or 2 cards in same formatting if 2nd or 3rd variable is ignored. Uses an invisible table, so will get shoved down if there's a CardInfobox to its right for example. Code: {{Card3|CARD1|CARD2|CARD3}}
-CardInfobox : Infobox for cards. That's it, just a couple of the labels renamed. Uses outdated infobox template, but new version looks super crappy displaying card info. Check page if you want code. Ton of variables.
-Rollover : Uses first part of hover CSS. Really glitchy and works weirdly. Use in other template.(don't use by itself.) Meant for use on images, I forced it onto text.
-CardHover : Uses all hover CSS stuff. When you Hover over a card link that uses this template, a popup of the card appears to the right. Can repurpose some of this code into "spoiler text" if it's necessary. Code: {{CardHover|CARDNAME}}
-TabLine : Used for sortable tables with 4 values. Code: {{TabLine|CARDNAME|Mana Cost(#)|Rarity|Type}}

Wikia Layout

Anyone want to discuss on how to layout this wikia?
i.e.: Should card pages be laid out more like Hearthstone gamepedia or Hex wikia , or something else?
