Unused Images

Hi, just a reminder that we have these 2 Minas Tirith Citadel Guards on the unused images page: image:Citadel-LotR-06-96-03-01.jpg & image:Citadel-LotR-06-96-04-01.jpg. Both Minas Tirith guards that you would think were part of 06-96 Minas Tirith Citadel Guard but I can't find them in the catalogs and they don't appear to be in the blister. Both types are readily available on eBay and the tab is "CITADEL GUARD". I'm not sure what to do about these: just add them to that 06-96 page with a note as "uncatalogued"? - Cattwister 08:36, 17 April 2020 (BST)

I guess so. I never have been able to find these guys in a package. Thanks for the reminder!

eBay Contributor Permission

Hi, I've added a "Declined" list for when an eBay user decides not to let us use their images - this should stop us duplicating effort / spamming eBay users. Please check and help to maintain this list if you are contacting eBay sellers. :-D - Cattwister 10:16, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

That's a great idea!

Eldar Field Weapons

Hi, great that you've added the 4304 and 1533 Eldar pages. We have most of the missing images on the RT404 Eldar Artillery and RT404 Eldar D-Cannon pages. - Cattwister 20:43, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

Cool! I'll work on those this evening if I have time.

Lord of the Rings

Hi. I'm going to split the The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game page up soon. It's becoming unwieldy at 80kB: even a simple change like "adding a comma" saves another 80kB copy of the page. I find the "carousel" method used on the 'C' Series (Citadel) pages easier to navigate. Any thoughts? - Cattwister 10:12, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

That sounds great. Are you planning to split it up by release series (Fellowship, Two Towers, Return of the King, etc.)? How will you handle the later releases? Some of those can be hard to pin down.

"split up by release series" - this can be handled by adding separate index pages for each release e.g. a "Fellowship of The Ring" index that just lists the Fellowship releases. A lot of the Mithril Miniatures series have been done like this.
"later releases" - anything that doesn't fit into an obvious place can be added to the bottom of the main index page (The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game) until we figure out a better place for it. I was disappointed they hadn't grouped them sensibly by product code.

Disappointed but not surprised, I imagine. Anyway, the above sounds like the way to go.

Collector Series

Hi, fyi: I've added the new Citadel page Collector Series (Citadel) for those blister pack images that you have uploaded. We might move them to their own individual pages if we get enough information about them but this will do for now to organize them. What do you think? - Cattwister 06:16, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for letting me know. Sorry for not responding to your earlier message: I hadn't figured out how Talk works (and I'm still not sure I have). I appreciated the feedback and I hope I've mended my ways.

Anyway, I've been working on a page for the Collector Series. I uploaded the pictures to make sure my code was more or less okay and to see how the layout was going. Once I have it as finished as I can get it, I'll upload it. Which category do you think it should sit in?

Just replace the contents of Collector Series (Citadel) page. I have put that page in the Category:Citadel Ranges (1988-1989) and I have added a link to that page on the Citadel Ranges (1988-1989) page. If you look at that index you can see that all of the codes in the "Collector Series" would fit into that index without any clashes (so far...). I've always wanted to get at least a list of the Collector Series up on the wiki. Great that you are doing it. - Cattwister 15:01, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

Terrific! Thanks!

You know, you might as well just put your code onto the Collector Series (Citadel) page right now. It doesn't matter if it is incomplete. The whole point of a wiki is that every page is a work in progress. Always. Plus, I occasionally monitor the unused images page and I start to get twitchy when we get 50 or more images that are unused. :-D - Cattwister 15:51, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

All right. I'll see about it.

Collector Series (Citadel) looking good. You can switch the table of contents off at the top of the page by changing TOC to NOTOC. Also, "columns-16" instead of "columns-24" might work better? - Cattwister 23:28, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi. I really like how the Collector page looks. However, I've tweaked the References Section on the Collector Series a bit and would like to remove references 3 to 8 as they are direct links to images on the CCM site. This feels a little too much like hijacking their content. The link to the their Collector Series page is plenty - and I've added "recommended" to encourage traffic to go there a bit more. When I link to SoL, for example, I don't link directly to the catalog image scans but to the page they are included on. Pretty much the same thing, I guess. Maybe I'm being too sensitive here. What do you think? Some of those images also come from advertising... I'll try to track it down... it's probably on SoL. :-) - Cattwister 13:49, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Thanks! That all sounds reasonable. I thought maybe the links were a bit much, but I come from a publishing background, so obsessive citation has been hammered into me.
