This is the talk page for Quake Champions Wiki. Please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). Here is a to do list that I will make of that will help further improve this gamepedia:
- Add character icon template implementation of some kind, similar to how the overwatch gamepedia and paladins gamepedia.
- Add a full fledged New Players Experience Guide to help new players with additional resources and tutorials to playing the game.
- Improve Layout of Champion pages, make them uniform and consistent
- Add better Lore Codex Entries and implementation. Going to need help from more dedicated players that have them all unlocked.
- Add User created videos that are short and easily demonstrate champion abilities for characters that don't have them.
- Add better implementation of skins,shaders, and weapon cosmetics as to create an online resource for players.
- first step would be to upload images of all cosmetics, make take a while.
- Possibly create tournament/event pages? May be important to document huge quake pro player events.

- Yeah, I was also thinking of doing something like having little icons to instead of just page names like dota 2's wiki. I was thinking the best way we could try and do this is to just make a Champions, Weapons, ect. links on the main page with icons and then we could add more stuff to the champions and weapons pages which rn are kind of unused. (Check dota 2 wiki for a reference. I know they also just have all the heroes listed on the main page too for easy access, we could try something like that). With that said, I've usually tried to refrain from doing big changes to the main page template because I'm not very experienced with gamepedia and I wouldn't want to ruin the main page.
- As for a new player guide, we could just create a guide page that has many links to the different pages of the wiki. We have pages for pickups and gamemodes they're just unused.
- Lore scrolls should be easy to get.
- I'm not entirely sure we need pictures of all cosmetics. Players can see all that in-game (hell, we know if bethesda is going to put anything front-and-center in QC, it's going to be the lootboxes and skins) so those shouldn't be needed.
- Tournament pages I'm not sure about. We can possibly have pages for professional players.

Hey there. I have some experience with changing up the main page as I've done it on another wiki (Escape From Tarkov). I was having the same thought, the main page really could benefit with more images. I have headshot images of all the champions atm and they're ready to be implemented to the main page. I don't have any access to do so though, but if you guys want any tips on how to do it just let me know. Besides this talk page do you guys have any place where you communicate, such as on Slack or a Discord server? That would make communication much better. An example of how to have a linking image on the main page:
Clicking on the image or text directs you to the page of the champion. Do you prefer the headshot or the panel? All the panels are already uploaded but I also have all the headshots ready to go on request.
If you have permission to edit the front page and want to add them yourself, head to Quake Champions Wiki/Bottom section and replace
I think the front page will be looking much nicer once this is done! Cheers, Orbb09 (talk) 04:47, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
I already created a basic icon template but didn't put it to use yet. Template:Champion_Icon. It's simpler and I think your's is probably a better implementation. I couldn't figure out how to add a name yet.
This is how mine looks, its pretty much the same. So I think its best to use yours. We already have the icons uploaded here to the wiki, and a couple days ago I changed the namine scheme to "Icon *champ name*" to make it work.
Another Idea I have is to change the gamemodes section to a "Playlists" section, similar to how it is set up ingame. We can put the unused modes to a "Inactive Modes" section.
As for a discord or slack, There is a gamepedia slack server that I'm on, so we can communicate there best most likely. We can probably make a discord server or group if you guys want. My tag is Peachie#6417
I recommend we contact eachother asap. Also, its good to see another active member contributing to the wiki. Welcome. MrPeachie (talk) 05:30, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
