  • Hey there!

    I noticed you uploaded the new icons of the outfits. Good thing, but please don't just replace the old icon on the pages with the new one. You can add the new icon to the infobox without removing the old one by using a gallery:

    {{Infobox cosmetics
    |name = Valkyrie
    |image = <gallery>
    Valkyrie (New) - Outfit - Fortnite.png|New Icon
    Valkyrie - Outfit - Fortnite.png|Old Icon
    </gallery>
    }}
    

    would look like this:

    And (and I feel a bit like broken record saying this again and again) please keep it simple with the categories and only add the Outfits category as well as a possible set category - nothing else.

    • Then please find another way to add the new icons. As I already asked you before, don't just replace the old ones.

  • Hey there!

    I thought you might want to know where I get the images of all the cosmetics from so you can get them yourself and don't have to wait for them to be added to the wiki.

    I'm usually searching for them on fnbr.co, a website I can really recommend to you as they have high quality images and are very well organized. You can search under fnbr.co/list for every cosmetic pic they have which makes finding images extremly easy, and they also show the Item Shop every day.

    When I don't find a picture there, I go to Storm Shield One instead - they get those images a bit faster in general, but aren't as organized as fnbr.co and sometimes don't list pictures under their name but under their ID which makes it a bit harder to find a specific image as you can't Ctrl + F the hell out of it. It's still a very helpful website because there are a bit more complete than fnbr.co.

    So, when you want to create a page about an Outfit and there's no picture of it on the wiki yet, feel free to browse those websites and upload the image yourself. Just keep in mind to name those files after the scheme used for them (which would be "Name - Outfit - Fortnite.png" for Outfits), to choose the Fair Use license when uploading a picture (you know, just to give some credit to Epic Games), and to add the images to the category they belong to (for Outfits that would be Category:Images - Outfits - this way we have all the Outfit images in one place). :)

    If you need any help, feel free to contact me anytime.

  • Hi there!

    I noticed that you are extremly active in the wiki - that's awesome! :)

    However, there's one thing I'd like to talk to you about, and that's the thing with the categories. Although categorizing pages is very important, you're adding a bit too many categories to the skin pages. Keep in mind that the categories are not there to tell us all the information about a skin - there are here to categorize pages in a sensible way. Creating a category for a set to have all the set pieces in one place makes perfectly sense - creating a category like "No set" for all the skins without set that have nothing to do with each other doesn't make as much sense though. Same goes for all the categories about gender ("Female/Male skins"), topic ("Sport skins" etc), price (all the "X V-Bucks" categories) or tiers ("Tier 1" etc). All these things are important and interesting information that need to be in the article, but a category for them is unnecessary.

    Please try to keep it simple with the categories and use existing categories such as Category:Outfits, Category:Back Blings etc. If you feel like an important and useful category is missing, feel free to contact me on my message wall about it and I'll create and categorize the category (because uncategorized categories are pretty much useless, too ^^).

    If you have any questions or need help in any way, free feel to contact me.

    Keep up the good work! It's great to see active users on the wiki. :)

  • I saw on a post about the possable "scam" and I was wondering about getting your Fortnite Username so we could become "Fortnite Friends".
