Wiki organization[edit]

Does the (still small) C:S wiki community prefer long articles which keep a lot of information in a single place, or multiple short articles which may be more approachable but require more page loads? Personally, when I'm playing I only want a few browser pages open so I like long articles, but I know some people prefer shorter articles so I'm asking.

For example, Buildings. Once all the data had been tabulated, it was my plan to then do write-ups on the page for every building with section headers that could be linked to from redirect pages under the building names (a page named "Wind Turbine" redirects to "Buildings#Wind Turbine", so every link to "Wind Turbine" on the wiki gets to Buildings). But another approach would be to have the buildings spread across multiple pages: for example, "Wind Turbine" might be written up in Power.

A compromise approach would be to do the write-ups in sub-pages and use templating to place them both on the "master" Buildings page as well as on their topic page. People like me get their master pages and people who like short articles get those too. A little harder for people to figure out to edit them, and make sure they still make sense in both contexts though.

Also, since this is a Paradox wiki, is it generally okay to copy in-game text to the wiki, like building and policy descriptions?

Keeping information consolidated is of great importance. Many wikis fail at this by scattering information all over the place.
However, I'm not sure having each building be located on the appropriate topic page however would be an undue distribution in this case. It seems that the user would generally prefer to know how the building relates to the topic of hand, rather than by virtue of it simply being a building. The buildings page would thus work as a portal rather than where the info itself is stored.
I'd like input on this though; I'm not planning on making a completely unilateral decision on this. ~ Meneth (talk) 20:14, 14 March 2015 (CET)
Yes, anything from within the game can be used, be it images, text, or what have you. Even before Paradox bought my wikis, the Paradox Wikis had permission to use any assets. ~ Meneth (talk) 20:15, 14 March 2015 (CET)

Date for Patch 1.6.2 is wrong. --SchlauFuchs (talk) 12:25, 5 January 2017 (CET)

Fixed. Thanks for the heads up. Dauth (talk) 12:45, 5 January 2017 (CET)

Different langs?[edit]

What about different languages? I could create the german Skylines Wiki pages. NichtMalte (talk) 14:34, 3 January 2017 (CET)

We don't currently support different languages on the Cities Skylines wiki. Each wiki needs a dedicated core of editors to flourish, there's also the issue of keeping it up to date. I do a lot of the work on this wiki and there are still several outdated pages and missing images. In addition the wiki moderating team need to be able to effectively moderate the wiki. We do have some native German speakers however we don't have enough to guarantee that the entire wiki will remain in good condition. If you have any questions about this please let us know.

Patch 1.9.2[edit]

You need to add the 3rd anniversary, Surviving Mars themed, Patch 1.9.2 to the "Game History" section. - Morphias (talk) 01:20, 11 March 2018 (CET)

Minor patches were recently removed from the front page list. (I am a little surprised 1.9.1 is still on there.) There is an entry here that lists the contents. - Fox NS CAN (talk) 01:38, 11 March 2018 (CET)
Discussed. 1.9.2 added. 1.9.1 removed. - Fox NS CAN (talk) 06:43, 11 March 2018 (CET)
That was the reason why I mentioned that 1.9.2 needed listed since 1.9.1 was, originally there. - M o r p h i a s (C | T/D | E) 17:36, 11 March 2018 (CET)

Industries on main page[edit]

The Industries logo still needs to be added to the main page, but I am not skilled enough to do it myself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by GuyT (talk)

It's on my "to do" list. Been catching up on the "Parklife" images that I had sort of forgotten about. Maybe I can bump the Industries logo to the top of the list. :) - Fox NS CAN (talk) 16:48, 11 November 2018 (CET)
Done. - Fox NS CAN (talk) 17:06, 11 November 2018 (CET)

Recent Layout Problem[edit]

I'm not sure where to report this, but suddenly over the last few days multiple pages on the Wiki are displaying oddly. It's like they are presenting a mobile device rendered page, but on desktop. Tested on more than one browser. It's awful. I've had to resort to using the google cached versions of the page I want to view. It's not all page but a couple as an example:

Screenshot showing what I mean

How it should look (via google cache):

How it's actually appearing:

I've waited a good few days in case there was a temporary hiccup which would be fixed, but days later it is still happening. Can this be fixed please?

NB: You've made reporting this really difficult, first not being able to link to the screenshots I took to demonstrate the problem or even the relevant wiki pages, then having to google the answer to your CAPTCHA. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2a02:c7f:a625:3e00:e98f:7b6f:e995:c8a9 (talk) 23:07, 1 June 2019‎ (CEST)

You could try here:
You can upload images directly into a post. - Fox NS CAN (talk) 02:04, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
The second view is the layout for mobile devices. You can toggle between desktop and mobile view at the bottom of the page. – Lillebror (talk) 19:43, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
I've just checked back today and it's finally fixed (without me doing anything or clicking anything), so thanks! Incidentally clicking on 'mobile view' at the bottom of page doesn't do anything, but that's ok, it's horrible on desktop anyway.
