Unified EVE University Navbox

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 15:37, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Problem
EVE University 2.0. will replace the concept of a campuse with a concept of a community. EVE University policy and rules pages are spread out and well interlinked. It is unclear which EVE University department is responsible for maintaining which service or protected page. There is no unified navigational template that shows the width and breath of EVE University services and programs.
Description
Use Template:Navbox to construct a navbox that merges and replaces Template:HR Navbar, Template:Campus Group Navbar and Template:FCC Links, links to pages in Category:EVE University and Special:ProtectedPages related to EVE University as an EVE Online corporation. Because there are about a hundred protected pages, it is likely that the template will include about eighty or more links. After constructing it, include it at the bottom of all pages that the template links to.
I cannot overstate the benefits of this project: it allows every capsuleer to inspect what each department and directorate does, it shows which department is responsible for maintaining a page, it lists all the services, policies and rules, centralized template maintenance, promotes EVE University as an EVE Online corporation and encourages good template documentation, proper page categorization and Wiki collaboration. With plenty of examples, each department manager will be able to add more pages to the template as well as reorder them based on their importance, all on a single Wiki page.

Unified Mission Navbox

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 15:47, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Problem
Mission pages have no less than five separate navigational templates which confuse editors and readers alike due to how similar they are. Some are placed at the top, but they should be placed on the bottom of the page.
Description
Use Template:Navbox to construct a navbox that merges and replaces Template:MissionLinks, Template:AnomicMissionNav, Template:EpicMissionArcBoilerintro, Template:Missionrelated and Template:ThePloyNav. After constructing it, include it at the bottom of all pages that the template links to.

COSMOS Missions Navbox

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 15:57, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Problem
There is a very large number of agent and COSMOS mission pages that are either orphaned or dead-end pages, making UniWIki navigation difficult.
Description
Use Template:Navbox to construct a navbox that links to COSMOS agents/missions. Because there are hundreds of COSMOS agents, it is likely that the template will include a large number of links. After constructing it, include it at the bottom of all pages that the template links to.

Perfect Refiner Template

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 15:57, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Problem
Perfect Refine List is a list of volunteers with excellent skills who refine ores. Because there is no template each refiner/user formatted their skills, availability, cost and last update date according to their ability making it difficult for readers to parse information.
Description
Examine the Perfect Refine List and propose a new template that perfect refiners could use to describe who they are, how much their services cost, when it was the last time they updated their skill list, what implants they have, their contact information and what ever else you think perfect refiners would like.

Resuscitate EVE University's Epic Arc

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 12:37, 3 May 2022 (UTC)
Problem
The Explorer's Shadow is an Epic Arc created by EVE University members for EVE University members. It is woefully out of date.
Description
Reconstruct the Epic Arc. Propose how big it should be, what needs to be changed, coordinate with other editors, propose additional templates, ... This is an ambition project that requires an ample amount of perseverance.

Template (EVE University) Events

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 20:55, 5 May 2022 (UTC)
Problem
Events Department used Events Template page as a template for their Events. That means each event page had to be created by copy-pasting the format and contents rather then being created by an actual template, making maintenance difficult.
Description
Use the new Template:EVEUniEvent to re-template each event in Events.

Cleanup Infobox Templates

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 18:21, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
Problem
Category:Infobox templates are copy-pasted, use custom CSS which means every Infobox looks different, are difficult to learn as each author had a different vision of what an Infobox should be and are hard to maintain.
Description
Use the Template:Infobox to re-template each template in Category:Infobox templates. Template:Infobox will disentangle CSS from data improving readability, will make sure all Infobox have a consistent look and feel, will make learning what the Infobox does easier which increases accessibility and paves the way for automatic/dynamic list/spreadsheet generation.
There are only two requirements: put data into them and make them stack (like on Classes). Stacking means that different height Infoboxes in two rows should align to the tallest Infobox and rows of Infoboxes should be centered. Everything else, all the CSS/support templates/HTML markup/syntax can be changed to support that. Add, delete, replace whatever you need to achieve these two goals. Having all Infoboxes colored differently is a nice to have.

Wormhole Sites Navbox

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 15:41, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
Problem
Category:Wormhole sites not connected to each other making them difficult to access.
Description
Use Template:Navbox to construct a navbox that connects Category:Wormhole sites, similar to how Template:Combat Anomalies links Combat Anomalies. After constructing it, include it at the bottom of all pages that the template links to.

Replace Icons With Files

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 21:33, 22 May 2022 (UTC)
Problem
Template:Icon is 10x less CPU efficient than placing an icon through the [[File:filename|dimensions|tooltip]] syntax.
Description
Starting with Category:Templates that put icons into pages, replace Template:Icon invocations with the File: syntax.

Investigate PvE Blood Raider Site

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 18:19, 2 June 2022 (UTC) on behalf of User:Sara Seraph
Problem
There is no Wiki Page that describes these Blood Raider PvE sites, loosely based upon Forward Operating Base.
Description
Investigate references provided by User:Sara Seraph: How to Run a Blood Raiders Sotiyo and Yeet Your Molok and Chemosh BPCs, an AAR How-To Hybrid, Blood Raider Sotiyo on zkillboard, EVE North 2019: A huge battle once broke out in EVE Online, but not a single player was involved and then construct the page. User:Sara Seraph is also available for more information and is best reached through EVEmail.

Import Sidebar with collapsible lists

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 08:47, 9 June 2022 (UTC)
Problem
Sometimes a Sidebar Navigational Template is more appropriate and convenient than a Template:Navbox, but currently the Wiki has no meta-template to standardize Sidebars
Description
Import the Sidebar with collapsible lists and its adjacent Templates and write documentation that explains how to use it in a style similar to that of a Template:Navbox or Template:Infobox. Although Wikipedia uses Lua it might be possible to implement the Template with war CSS and HTML, just like Template:Infobox and Template:Navbox.

Wiki Talk Page Discord Bot

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 09:14, 10 June 2022 (UTC)
Problem
Edits on Talk Pages need to be check though the Special:RecentChanges interface. Important discussions can cool down and editors may start to believe Talk Pages are unused if updates are not caught in time.
Description
Talk with the Director of Information Services or the CEO about permission to use and deploy the bot. Develop a Discord bot that would track Recent Changes on Talk Pages (perhaps through the Wiki's publicly accessible API) and post a message in the EVE University Discord #wiki channel.

Publish Kelon's Fitting Principles

Proposer
Arin Mara (talk) 05:36, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
Problem
User:Kelon Darklight posted a number of fitting guide that will be archived or deleted from the Forum automatically after a year, yet they may contain timeless knowledge worth preserving for generations to come.
Description
Create a Wiki page that would preserve the essence and the knowledge contained within the Forum Posts. You can use Fitting A Ship (Working Example) as an example, but feel free to innovate and do it differently.
