Happy New Year! The wiki team has been busy this year already, slowly working our way through the 200+ ships in the game and updating their commander skill tables after the release of Update 0.6.0. Expect that to continue to roll out over the next 3-4 weeks as we work that in among other ongoing projects. Speaking of which, a new Signal Flag template has been created for us to start using on individual ship pages and recommend signals the way we do commander skills. Expect that to start appearing throughout the wiki. Lastly, I'm going to begin a style guide so that people who want to contribute are aware of how they should be writing and on what criteria we're going to be editing their work. I'll be sure and share the link when it's ready.
Update 0.5.16 drops tomorrow. The German DD line is up, and we are well on our way to populating the pages with player information and histories. That will be an ongoing project over the next week or so, similar to the Japanese destroyer revamp. A new Signals & Flags page is up. I'm working on a big re-organization and expansion of the main page, including more specific pages for fire and flooding, just to name two.
It's patch day for Update 0.5.15! Patch notes are up, info about Campaigns is up, and most of the new Japanese destroyers are populated with relevant information. The destroyers that were re-arranged will take a little longer to get updated (because we couldn't fix them until AFTER the patch), so be patient!
The entire British cruiser line is completely done! All ships have each relevant section filled in; the line is the new standard we are trying to implement across all ship lines in terms of information and completion of photos and histories.
The Camouflage page has been completely re-done, and should be up-to-date. As always, let us know if you find errors (or feel free to fix them up yourself).
The Game Modes page has been completely re-done, and should contain up-to-date information. If you notice any glaring errors, please let me know so we can get them fixed. I'm only human. =)
Ships of Japan, Ships of Germany, and Ships of the U.S.A. have all had a polish pass. If you see any glaring errors, feel free to fix them or let me know. We're prepping pages for the new maps coming in 0.5.11, as well as the new premium ships on the horizon, so those should go up in a timely fashion once the new patch hits.
I spent most of yesterday trying to clean up the Maps page. It was, to say the least, a bit of a trainwreck, and apparently hadn't been updated in quite a number of patches (beyond adding new maps to the list). Most of the battle tier data was out of date, and many of the map sizes were missing. That's all been corrected. The individual map pages aren't done, but at least the summary page has a nice, consistent look and feel to it. I also gave the Ships of the U.S.S.R. page a polish, and will probably do the same to the Japanese page soon.
It's done. It took a few days, but I finally completed the full changelog history for World of Warships. Each update has its own page, and each set of notes is formatted for ease of legibility. I added links where I thought they were relevant, and embedded YouTube summary videos for the patches WG did them for. It came out pretty nice, and is a great historical tool to see where the game has been.
All premium ship pages have now undergone at least one pass of clean-up and polishing. We added links to video and written reviews where applicable, and most - if not all - should have recommended commander skill tables. We'll be adding those to each ship page as we work through them.
The consumables page has been completely re-done. All data on the different consumables is now current and broken out by "standard" and "premium", as well as showing the differences by nation and tier (where applicable).
I finally found the Ship:Clans page. I still don't know what links to it (yeah there's a way to find out, but I haven't done it yet). The point is, most people coming here looking for info on Clans are going to end up on the WoT page and conclude that there isn't one for WoWS. Please add a Clans link to the front page, down at the bottom. iDuckman:na (talk) 00:58, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
- I have a re-work of the front page menus in progress, but haven't rolled it out just yet. See here. SeaRaptor00:na (talk) 07:03, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Images and how to get them?
There is a good image for the Free XP star (File:Icon_5.png) (thanks to you) so I can do Template:FXP, but nothing for most of the other annotation icons, such as the silver Ship XP star. How to get my hands on these? TIA

- Looks like you figured this one out. =) SeaRaptor00:na (talk) 07:01, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
