Thanks for the heads up, I'll get to work on it as soon as I have time. I do wish that you or another admin had contacted me about this a couple of months earlier though, I was assuming that this wiki was half-abandoned due to the lack of activity here and took the matter into my own hands. Sorry for the inconvenience, and let me know if I can be of any assistance.

"Details" sounds most appropriate. I was thinking that unit overview sounded awk. after using "overview" myself. Frederick 17:29, 21 September 2011 (MDT)
 Expansion of information (not opinion)
In Empire (as I'm sure you know) there are three government types with their own advantages and disadvantages, but I cannot find a page for government types. Should I create one? Same goes for how experience works (their bonuses and the number of kills required to attain them), the technology tree, unit firepower, company strength, upkeep cost, training costs, etc. These are all statistical information that I believe would help lead to a more informative wiki.

I was thinking more along the lines of reformatting and standardizing the information boxes of the unit pages to include such information, rather than create a new page for them altogether. Frederick 07:12, 19 October 2011 (MDT)
People still edit this thing? Frederick 18:01, 13 April 2012 (MDT)
 User Talk
Got it :D Aikanar 04:18, 15 November 2012 (MST)
I am grateful for your offer, but this wiki seems pretty dead to me with little to no contributions (unless I am missing something huge in editing outside of pages related to Empire: Total War). At this point I don't think there's much I can do for this wiki even if I am made an official editor.

Sounds like a deal. Happy editing! Frederick 10:46, 25 December 2012 (MST)
I deleted my comment as I felt that it was too harsh and also because I did notice some minor changes to the pages I was following in my absence. So you're right. This wiki's not dead. It's still not as active as I would like, though. If the offer's still open (and it's fine if it's not), I'd like to join if this wiki ever picks up steam. Frederick 16:32, 14 March 2013 (MDT)
 Regarding registration and information reorganizing
No, I do not have a TWC account.
I find the tables for the units highly lacking. For one, they only display the amount of units on ultra settings. Would it be too much to make a note on the side that "This is on ultra settings"?
Secondly, the tables do not display unit statistics, making it hard for users to evaluate and compare units.
I also think that this wiki could benefit from a technologies page, as well as a buildings page. We have disagreed before on this; your reasons for not including more information along these lines were that it would be difficult to implement, that modders can change statistics, that some values do not show up, and that tech and building information can by added to the Empire: Total War page.
1. I'll do all the writing and organizing for the information if need be, so there's no need to worry about difficulty in implementation
2. Modders can change any aspect of the game, including unit sizes and recruitment requirements, but we still put up unit sizes and recruitment requirements on the individual unit pages. Adding vanilla, unadulterated information is useful for those who do not mod this game (which I daresay is a majority of people who play this game).
3. Some values do indeed not show up, but most do. It's better to add the information we know and add that there are unknown values than to not have any information at all.
4. There are dozens of technologies in ETW; many crucially change the game. There is definitely enough information to warrant a technology page without it looking like a stub. Besides, the ETW page is already very, very long and convoluted.

 Re: Various responses
Editing articles so that they are consistent in format is in no way irrelevant. It makes it easier for readers to find the information they need as they do not have to stumble through personalized, uniquely formatted page upon personalized page.
Unit sizes are also altered very often in mods. Should we go ahead and delete the unit size information on every page in order to avoid self-contradiction, then? Unit stats are always the same for the player regardless of difficulty; it is the enemy AI stats that change, and that is of lesser to no concern to the player.
I'll start working on a tech page later today, thanks for the green light. I'll leave the building information for further consideration Frederick 09:46, 26 March 2013 (MDT)
Where on earth did I say that the unit pages as they are are inconsistent? I was simply arguing that consistency is by no means pointless.
If we're going to talk about unit guidelines with regards to how players would find them useful in combat, then I'd say that range is just as important. It's important to know that rangers have 90 range to line infantry's 70 to riflemen's 125 as it completely changes how a unit is useful in relation to others.Frederick 11:32, 26 March 2013 (MDT)
 Joining TWC
So after trying to resuscitate the failed disaster that is Total War Wikia and being shut down by their control freak admin, I'm both happy and resigned to say that I'd be more than willing to join the TWC staff as this wiki now offers the best community for me to share my knowledge with other Total War fans. I've registered for the forums, but apparently I cannot post anything. Is this normal? My handle on the forums is Brainwasher5. Frederick 10:06, 11 April 2013 (MDT)
It tells me that it has to check for inappropriate words and URLs or something along those lines. Frederick 21:47, 11 April 2013 (MDT)
