This page should answer some of the questions you may have about the Wiki in general or how we run it.

Why should I create an account?[edit]

Creating an account has serveral benefits:

  • Users can't directly see your IP address every time you make an edit
  • You can edit your preferences, e.g. enabling the dark theme or changing the default date format.

How do I create an account?[edit]

You can create your account here.

I have been unrightfully banned, what should I do?[edit]

It can happen that we accidently banned you during a spam wave or that a spammer used your IP address in the past.

Just contact us on our Discord server and we will assisst you as soon as possible.

When I edit a page, I often see curly brackets ({{...}}). What do they do?[edit]

Those are templates. You can learn more about them here.

Why do you display cards with HTML code instead of just uploading the images?[edit]

Even though it is more work initially, not displaying the cards as plain images provides serveral benefits:

  • You can copy & paste card descriptions, names, etc.
  • Card descriptions can link to pages on the Wiki
  • If a card gets slightly changed, we just need to adjust the values instead of reuploading the whole image
  • If Valve decides to change the card design, we just need to adjust the template instead of reuploading hundreds of images
  • If you have a slower internet connection, just the artworks will load slowly, you will still be able to read the descriptions quickly
