Server issues[edit source]

Quick thing for Xbox one servers. I know I'm not the only one who has noticed but you admins need to step up your game. There are so many alpha tribes that ruin the game for everyone. Literally not allowing people to build and essentially taking over whole servers with no balance. For instance server 656 has a tribe called frost wolves un that has literally all day destroyed wooden bases with no tames.... by bringing level 288 gigas and wyverns that's a joke man they just block off all obs and then control a server. Pretty sure that's what dedicated is for. This isn't a one server occurance either so why don't you guys step up your game and isntead of nuking flyers take care of this bs. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.191.97.242 (talkcontribs) at 07:15, 5 April 2017 (UTC).

Thanks for your concern, unfortunately those of us on the wiki have no power on the official servers, as you can see from the random questions below. I'd recommend making a post on the Official Forums, the Steam Forums or trying to get some people to rally behind you on the subreddit page. Good luck! --Z3ther (talk) 09:42, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi, good place for questions like this is rather the offical forum at http://survivetheark.com/. The anouncement regarding the release of the TekTier on the ps4 is around thursday (16.01.): https://twitter.com/Jatheish/status/831298202057965568. --Cadaeib (talk) 21:38, 14 February 2017 (UTC)


Hello, I contact you following the numerous claim that me my tribe and other server player ps4pve171 had made about a tribe that performs purely anti-spy on a server pve. I explain its profits (Destroyers SQUAD) to be on a server chip so not to be able to kill the dinausore adverse, to block and to prevent the constructions and to block all our accesses. Sorry but I'm getting really nervous against you but against this tribe that keeps me from playing me and my tribe. I consider paying a subscription, having to buy your game and so be able to play freely without being put sticks in the wheels. Thank you for doing something as quickly as possible. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.175.186.140 (talkcontribs) at 12:34, 25 December 2016. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Unfortunately the wiki people don't have anything to do with the servers or backend of the game, just more of the documentation. I'd recommend you to put a request and report the issue and ask if others have been experiencing it is on the official forums or steam forums as there's a much wider base of people who check them and can provide feedback there (as well as the devs who can maybe give you advice)... Sorry! --Z3ther (talk) 12:18, 25 December 2016 (UTC)

Design & More[edit source]

I'm thinking of generating some Multi-Tab InfoBoxes (a la Tabber) on pages that have multiple types (Armors/Building Pieces/Tools) and condensing the info into one page. I think it would go a LONG way in reducing the number of stubs/empty spaces on the Wiki, and make the whole thing easier to navigate in. The biggest challenge will be going back into the pages and re-routing everything to the right places. Thoughts? Jakdaw (talk) 02:53, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

If you think it would work, go for it! I think you know enough to know what you're doing, and if it runs into issues I can try to give you a hand. --Z3ther (talk) 09:40, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Main page tweak[edit source]

Can you add the minor addition suggested for main page ? Daworm (talk) 03:05, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Done. Thanks! --Z3ther (talk) 09:04, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Crediting[edit source]

Quick question, would it be possible for my account to be credited with the edits I made? I forgot to log in when i made them Minemodoverlord (67.61.190.234)

Pretty sure it's not possible, but I'll check with the other people that work at gamepedia and see if there's something to combine them.. Thanks for joining btw --Z3ther (talk) 09:21, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks anyway! Minemodoverlord

Also is there a page or tag for pages awaiting information so they can be tagged easily? I added several pages for eggs but I don't know the stats of them since I don't have the game

Maybe watching the page? Do you want to get a notification that the page has been changed? If that's what you'd like, find the page that you want to watch and in the top right. there's a little star, that you can click to "Watch" the page. Click it again to remove it. Maybe you're talking about Stub pages? Does that help? (LPT: If you use the signature at the top at the end of your comments, it will make your name show up properly).. --Z3ther (talk) 10:16, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
I was referring more to the list of pages with broken links, just a list to check for all the pages that has been tagged as awaiting information since stub doesn't really cover it. -- Minemodoverlord (talk) 22:22, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Missing templates[edit source]

What is the deal with this wiki missing many of the standard MediaWiki templates such as Template:Unsigned? It would be nice to have since some people do not sign their comments, for example. -- IllegalOpcode (talk) 00:31, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Probably because no one has needed them yet? You're welcome to import them as you find the need? --Z3ther (talk) 10:16, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I see. I thought there might have been a switch somewhere that would make them available. I'll just import them then, thanks! :] -- IllegalOpcode (talk) 16:10, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Well we have the basic ones that are built into new wiki loadouts, but for anything extra it's just as people need they can add them whenever they want.. :D --Z3ther (talk) 17:07, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

IllegalOpcodeBot[edit source]

Hey! I've got something like a bazillion pages that need to be updated with the new infoboxes. I've created a script to assist me in this endeavour, but it still takes ages to copy the old template, run the script, and insert the new template. What does it take to get an account approved as a bot? I'd like to create an IllegalOpcodeBot to help with this issue as well as future maintenance. (Think assistance in voting on videos, for example, or just general clean-up.) I'm an experienced programmer, so I know what I'm doing, I just need that bot flag on the account--or I could use my own account and spam recent changes, but somehow I don't think that's a good solution. :] -- IllegalOpcode (talk) 12:58, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

You actually should already have rights for that, but if you don't let me know once you've made the account and made an edit. Just give it bot rights and it should be good to go (http://ark.gamepedia.com/Special:UserRights/IllegalOpcodeBot) --Z3ther (talk) 14:01, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
I don't have permission to access that page. I created IllegalOpcodeBot, but I'm unable to login after having logged out the first time. I used a very long password that won't fit into the password field on the login page--the field has a max length of 20 characters, but my password is considerably longer. I also used a + in my email address (I do this a lot to make creating inbox rules easier), but the Curse account system seems to think this is invalid when trying to recover the account. So my password doesn't work and I can't recover it to make it shorter. Anything you can do? -- IllegalOpcode (talk) 15:51, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
It's been recommended to me that you should put in a support ticket here about the password so we can at least assign a temp password. You can email from the address on the account (or be logged in) to help speed things up. (or an email to support@curse.com or tweet @CurseNetworkCS)... I went ahead and made the user a bot, so you shouldn't have issues with the bot part. --Z3ther (talk) 16:20, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
I've submitted a ticket (ID 109301) while logged in with this account. -- IllegalOpcode (talk) 16:54, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

ARK Survival Evolved Wiki namespace alias[edit source]

Hey! Do you think we could get AW as a namespace alias for ARK Survival Evolved Wiki? It will make linking to rules etc. a lot easier. -- IllegalOpcode (talk) 11:33, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Is it possible there would a category made for NL Transltion there isn't one yet and I would like to help.
