Template talk:Winter Event

From War Thunder Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Template proposal. If accepted I'd also create one for the Operation H.E.A.T event (other gaming wikis tend to have similar navigational templates for events, hence the inspiration), we could also look into covering some of the older events. To look correctly this template requires approval of the changes made to the Template:Navigation-First-Simple-Line. Jareel_Skaj (talk) 17:00, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

The problem currently would be that Operation FROST has not the main name of the winter event in the past. Previous events were titled "Festive Quest" in 2017, and 2018, the "War Thunder Chronicle" in 2016, and the "Winter Holiday Marathon" in 2015. So I think it'd be best to change the template title into "Winter Events" or of similar meaning. Also, I did approve of the change to the navigation template you edited, but I did not see any changes from the your iteration of the template. I went ahead and edited the template to be what I think would be the best way of formatting the vehicles if we were to include all the previous years (I don't think the running dates are relevant in the template table, linking to the event announcement should be sufficient) and be consistent with other tables on the wiki. However, feel free to edit in your vision now that I approved the change as maybe I didn't see the full potential of that yet.--Inceptor57 (talk) 01:19, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
Oh, I see. I thought about making 1 template per event, but it's actually a good idea to make a single one for all of the specials. I moved the page, will add content later on. Jareel_Skaj (talk) 20:41, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
I have completed adding the events. Note that they've been done only since the 2015, and it's also been an unusual year, in that they've run 2 winter events with premiums as a rewards, so I just put them both in. Jareel_Skaj (talk) 19:03, 11 January 2020 (UTC)
