Japan Charity Bundle

i was wondering, why is the japan charity bundle update missing from the template? -- zFn (Talk) 07:23, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

UBER Update Logo.png Hi. I was working on this all morning and I was wondoring id I could change the uber update logo to this just cause I don't think we should be using the Medic logo for two different updates. Smashbrother101 12:22, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

First 2 contribution updates were also minor

Smaller image and italics may be needed for those also. I'd do it myself, but I couldn't figure out how. Balladofwindfishes 12:51, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes indeed they aren't considered major updates on the blog... So I'll turn those into minor major updates right now... Tturbo Killicon ambassadorhs unused.png (Speech voice.png / Intel neutral pickedup.png) 12:57, 21 June 2011 (UTC)


Sorry to bring this up but I think this should get resolved here and quickly. The reason I made it bigger is because I thought it looked to small. Smashbrother101 17:31, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

It may be small, but it's too big in comparaison to the rest of the icons. It's a nav, it's not supposed to be really visible, it's supposed to allow an easy switch between pages once you're on a related one... For instance you're on the replay update you look for the next one, you simply look at the nav and what's in bold and click... And it's mostly the text that count. If you make one icon bigger it breaks the balance of the the column. Making one update more visible than another, which isn't the goal of a nav, because it doesn't allow an easy switch between updates, if one is more visible. And in the end it's a question of style too... (I hope I was clear because I typed that really fast I have another problem right now) Tturbo Killicon ambassadorhs unused.png (Speech voice.png / Intel neutral pickedup.png) 17:42, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
No but what I'm saying is it DOES look too small compared to the rest. Besides... It is a BIG update : D EDIT: Alright we can leave this for now and I'll wait until your problem is sorted out.Smashbrother101 18:00, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

The vertical format...

...will not work very well in the future. It will be way too right-heavy, with a big blank spot in the lower-left corner, and I'm pretty sure no other navboxes use a 100%-columned format. The previous horizontal format was much better. Toomai Glittershine 20:53, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Should the Grordbort's update be added?

I'd say it's just as important to list as the community updates. Should it be added? Evang7 16:05, 25 July 2011 (PDT)

Pictogram plus.png Agree It has its own update page on the official website. Yeah, it's about as fitting as the Shogun or Mac update are. --SilverHammer 16:07, 25 July 2011 (PDT)
Pictogram plus.png Agree I can't think of a reason why it's not already there. Balladofwindfishes 16:12, 25 July 2011 (PDT)
Pictogram minus.png Oppose We're not going to make a community update out of every 4 special items added. We didn't make an update out of the Poker Night at the Inventory special... It's a special set of item design by a professional studio, not a community update. Tturbo Killicon ambassadorhs unused.png (Speech voice.png / Intel neutral pickedup.png) 17:27, 25 July 2011 (PDT)
But it's got its own page and comic on the blog, it's even in that little "Now Featuring" box to the right. It has its own pack in the store, I just don't see how it's any different from the Summer update or the Mac update. The same professional thing could be said about the Earbuds, or even the Shogun stuff considering the company commissioned Larolaro. --SilverHammer 17:32, 25 July 2011 (PDT)
Pictogram comment.png Comment I say it depends. If for some reason Valve will try to uncover the mystery of the other two grockets (which means probably 8 more items at most) then it should be included. If not, I doubt that it's anything special, but probably still does deserve it since the update has its own comic and blog post. -- Denmax (talk|contributions|sandbox) Item icon Soldier's Stash.png 17:39, 25 July 2011 (PDT)
Pictogram comment.png Comment It's obviously important enough to be featured heavily in the store and all over the blog. It's exactly the same situation as the Shogun and community map update as far as publicity and content goes, and has even more mention than the second and third community contribute update, which are in the nav despite the former not even having a blog post. Further, it's not a community update, but nobody was saying it was so I'm not sure why TTurbo implied someone was. Balladofwindfishes 17:43, 25 July 2011 (PDT)
It's the original question, should it be added to the "list as the community updates". And The poker night at the inventory was feature on the Blog too. For now I don't think those weapons should have their own update page, especialy now that there's already a pack for the pack. Now, if the 2 other grockets reveal something more, then we might call it an update, depending on what comes out (but I'm still thinking it's not community, as long as a community item isn't in it). Tturbo Killicon ambassadorhs unused.png (Speech voice.png / Intel neutral pickedup.png) 07:41, 26 July 2011 (PDT)
No it wasn't. The original question said it was just as important as the community updates. It was stating that. Anyway, the poker night thing doesn't really explain this away because those were not featured on their own update page, nor were they highlighted by the blog in the same sense this update was. Besides, this update already has an update page on the wiki, the poker night stuff does not. Balladofwindfishes 10:22, 26 July 2011 (PDT)

Fall Crates/Total War Promo Update

I believe both should be in this list. The Fall Crate update was the same amount of content as the three community contribution updates and they're on there (even though #2 didn't get a blog post). The Total War Promo was bigger than the Japan Charity event and had ample PR about it all over (just not on the blog), it's large enough for its inclusion also. Balladofwindfishes 06:40, 1 November 2012 (PDT)

Pictogram plus.png Agree The October 9th patch could also do with being listed as a major update, as it was mentioned on the blog as a "Big MvM Update [1]" --Erfly 06:49, 1 November 2012 (PDT)
Yes, I had forgotten about that update. That probably could get on there also, that was a pretty substantial update. Balladofwindfishes 11:17, 1 November 2012 (PDT)
Pictogram minus.png Disagree Your reasoning is sound, but none of those meet the nominal requirements for being major updates. I think we should take the japan charity event, and the third community contribution update out of this nav, since they didn't bring any new weapons, maps, or gamemodes. — Armisael (T · C) 07:20, 1 November 2012 (PDT)
What's the distinction between adding a large number of hats and adding a weapon though? Had it had just one reskin, would it have qualified? The patch that added the Cozy Camper added a new weapon, as did the Rift update. I'd consider neither really worth putting on here though, but I'd put the Fall Crate on here. I think "major" is a bad term to use since those are your Uber Updates, Engineer Updates, etc, but there have been a lot of large content patches that deserve to stand out from "fixed mac client crash" or some of the other random stuff that's been in a patch.
