Summary of requests: software enhancements

Semantic MediaWiki

Semantic MediaWiki (on MediaWiki.org) is an elaborate but well known, documented and supported extension that will allow us to have a central location for weapon damage values (and other stats). Defining a property and value for weapon base damage, such as [[ammo loaded::6]] for the Scattergun, will allow us to query that value on other pages. This will primarily increase the accuracy of such values and remove the need to update the values on multiple pages when patches hit, and secondarily assist in outside websites in parsing the information contained in the wiki.

In approaching the issue of increasing our data accuracy, this seemed like the best solution rather than using some sort of template/pseudo-namespace or the like to serve as a central space for these values. -- Pilk (talk) 09:05, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Group Permissions

GroupPermissions will remove reliance on Valve to modify user group permissions. A couple of changes to user group rights are wanted but will require experimentation so allowing us to do it at our leisure would be the best solution. -- Pilk (talk) 10:32, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

File Size Limit

The current file size limit is making it difficult to get ultra high-res images on the Wiki, which means file quality generally has to be compromised to get them on the Wiki at all. It's currently set at 2 MB; if this could be increased to 5 MB, that would be incredibly helpful. -- En Ex (talk) 05:55, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
