Sorry if you feel like I'm bothering you about this, but what are your thoughts on ImStillInTheAir being a content moderator? They have made many good edits to the wiki and seem dedicated to it. Also, do you think we need more moderators for the Wiki discussions?
I was thinking about making a change in the "tips" section of the heroes, and I wanted approval before doing it. The change I'm talking about is replacing "counters" with "hero matchups", showing who the hero is strong against, weak against, and a third category where advantage depends on circumstances such as an ability being available or not (seesaw advantage, situational advantage, haven't though of an exact name yet), for example: Roadhog has an advantage against tracer if his hook is available, but has a disadvantage when it isn't. I also plan on adding a "good teammates" category in that section for heroes who combo well with the hero in question. I might not be implementing it today if approved, but, what do you think? Is this a good change?
I would actually support this idea. I know TF2's wiki had tips AND hero/class match-ups. basic and advanced stuff. so, My idea is that each hero can counter others, and how great the counter is in order. And then the weaknesses of them. It would be cool to add this.
Winston's Tesla Cannon auto-tracks Genji, reducing his mobility's effectiveness, and attacks through Deflect. Genji's escape option, Swift Strike, is on a longer cooldown than Winston's Jump Pack, so he can chase him down if he tries to flee.
Widowmaker can deal high damage if Winston is at range, but those situations are rare, as he usually justs leaps onto her perch and knocks her off while doing damage, or places down his barrier and finishes her off.
Winston's Tesla Cannon easily breaks Sombra's invisibility, and he can use his leap to chase her down if she throws her Translocator, but he may have difficulty finding her if she placed it beforehand and escaped.
Let me know if there are any additions/changes I can or should make.
I'm not against it - but, due to its length, it might be best as a subpage (Hero matchups). Non hero-specific tips can still remain in a Tips section on the hero's page. It's pretty easy to place a link at the top of the Tips section leading to the subpage.
Formatting-wise, best to have the table at 95% width.
@TTheenderr I considered that, but decided not to as it might make it a bit confusing for some readers. Also, the strength of the heroes depends on the skill of the player as well, for example, if someone who wasn't good at playing Reaper decided to use him against a skilled Winston but kept on getting killed by him, they may feel that Reaper isn't as effective as the icon stated.
Am I trusted enough to have content mod, or not? I mean, I currently see a page that was created, gibberish title, foreign language. I marked it delete, so it will be deleted by someone, and I've encountered a couple of abusive vandalism (Vandalising after someone reverted it multiple times). I'll give you some time, for know, i'm gonna back off... Thanks!
Not too long ago, Aicilespear referred me about an edit tool called a "rollback" that makes reverting vandalism easier. And how active I've been and how many reverts I did on vandalism, I kindly request if I may have that rollback tool so that I can deal with vandalism easier. I'm going to leave that up to your decision and I'll be patient. Thank you.
Just recently, i felt underpowered dealing this vandalist, and the only thing i could to is send a message on an admin wall to help me out and revert the edits. I don't know or think if im trusted enough to have a higher status group yet, so I'm not going to request that. The reason im not requesting anything yet is because I just got the tool. now that he/she is blocked i feel relaxed lol. Thanks for reading!
I know someone from another website that's a "Team Member" which is higher than a mod and lower than the admin/owner. They have a skype for only staffs, which they can discuss promoting, features, etc.
