Template:In category[]

Template:In_category seems to be missing certain things. For example, on the Modding: Overview, the page Modding: Maps is not included even though it's in the Modding category.

PV article notes[]

I think the PV article math is not quite correct, but I'm not sure how to update it. Mostly because I don't know how to make probability formulas. :) I just kind of math it together piece by piece. I'll admit I don't have a very good understanding of probabilities and I don't know how to make this into a true probability "distribution" that adds up to 100.

Was hoping you could help.

Perhaps the issue right now is that the PV article assumes a PV equation of [Penetration Roll] = 1d10 + PV? That's not quite right, as described in the Melee combat article. The dice roll in there is actually 1d10-2, and it has a chance to chain-roll if the maximum value (8) is rolled, adding another roll onto that. This has a few implications:

  • The chance of 5 penetrations is not 0 as currently indicated in the PV article. Theoretically you could have an infinite number of penetrations, the probability just approaches 0 and gets really small.
  • The other numbers seem close to what I calculated but not quite the same. Here's what I came up with and my notes. I don't know if the notes will make sense to you, but feel free to DM me if you wanna chat about it :P
Penetrate at least this many times Chance with vibro (PV == AV) Chance with sharp vibro (PV == (AV + 1))
1 99.2% 99.9%
2 47.9232% 70.9317%
3 8.6704% 21.8791%
4 0.3454% 2.0535%
5 0.0013% 0.0229%


My weird notes[]



VIBRO - NORMAL (Assume 10 AV and 10 PV)
	99.2% - penetrate at least once
	51.2% - all three rolls made, get a chance to do second roll with 8 bonus
		93.6% - penetrate twice
		21.6% - all three rolls made, get a chance to do third roll with 6 bonus
			78.4% - penetrate 3 times
			 6.4% - all three rolls made, get a chance to do fourth roll with 4 bonus
			 	48.8% - penetrate 4 times
			 	 0.8% - all three rolls made, get a chance to do fifth roll with 2 bonus
			 	     22.1312% - penetrate 5 times
			 	      0.0512% - all three rolls made, get a chance to do 6th roll with 0 bonus

     	34.3% chance to get a third pen roll with 7 bonus
     		87.5% chance to penetrate at least once on this third roll
     		12.5% chance to get a fourth pen roll with 5 bonus

Broken Queries in Category:Cooking Effects[]

All the cargo queries on pages in Category:Cooking Effects for the list of items which grant that effect seem to be broken. Some of them seem to be using the {{Food that grants}} template, and in those cases they do generally have a list, but even that template (which I 'think' is just a more cargo-illiterate-friendly way to do a query) is not totally reliable, possibly because it only looks in food, and thus things like neutron flux are not included despite granting cooking effects.

UCX implementation[]

Hi! I'm Tots, one of the Community Managers here at Fandom. I'm here to talk with you about the upcoming changes we'll need to make on the wikis when the new UCX is released. We'll need to adapt your current content - mainly the design and implemented code - to ensure they're compatible and operational.

Specifically, the UCS will mainly affect the Frontpage, the design (logo, background, favicon, themes), the CSS/JS used, and some templates that will need to adapt their look to fit. It's still several weeks until the wiki will be migrated but I'm here to work alongside you to anticipate all the work regarding review, improvements, and adaptations to the new skin.

If it's alright with you I'll start reviewing the elements I mentioned and describing to you what work should be done. For the design, I can work with the future version and get it set up ahead of time so that once the wiki is migrated it's ready. Regarding the Frontpage, templates, and code, I can work and implement the changes now to have them properly working both in the present and future, but getting all the changes done in advance.

Let me know what you think about all of this and we can start working together on the upcoming changes.

Thanks!
