English names in Russian space[edit source]


I noticed that if you delete the English equivalent titles.

This is extremely inconvenient given that the game is in English language and translation in the near future is not planned.

Russian wiki created for the Russian people. How they now understand that the game is a hammer hammer and not a shovel?

It is clear that the image is easy to understand what is what. But what about those items that they do not understand? For example, in the game there is a forge. People want to find it in the wiki and enter "Forge", and it is not mentioned here, because it is now in Russian as "Кузница", not "Кузница (Forge)" as previously

There is some explanation of why you chose to do so? --Valirius (talk) 12:54, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

It's unfortunate that we are at odds on this. The naming convention as it was, was very strange. I will restore the redirections so that searching will bring up the desired results, but typically, it is standard to have the page titles in the language of the wiki. You should have a chat with MaxwellV about standards and i will abide by whatever you decide. — Game widow (talk) 18:30, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
I hope things are now more to your liking — Game widow (talk) 12:04, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Tables & listing issue following recent update[edit source]


I believe that after that recent update some table codes have stopped working and a lot of pages listing objects, items etc. require fixing now.



Will these codes be fixed by curse team?

Thank you for your time. --ArrakisLiF (talk) 22:27, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

We've fixed many of the issues, but we are going through, wiki by wiki, and making sure everything gets resolved. I think the tables are all fine now. — Game widow (talk) 02:25, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Create multilangual wikies?[edit source]

Really want to make ru-wiki LiF. How to do this? Interwiki stick together

--Valirius (talk) 13:11, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Asking here is a good start :) I will request a Russian wiki and get the links set up. It should not take very long. — Game widow (talk) 13:32, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

German translation[edit source]

Issue with odd names in tables, suggested replacements[edit source]

Using for example the page Skinning knife in the info box from top to bottom we have listed
Item name (via) name = {PAGENAME}}
Then the description box with type (needed), Tool (Boolean yes,no which is not needed), Length (needed), Maxstacksize (not needed), unit weight (needed).
The next part is recipes. r1_ingred1 (needed), r1_quantity1 (needed), r1_influence1 (needed), and 2's and sometimes 3's of those, all great
The next part is where the confusion comes in the Equipment window. No matter the recipe the tool that you need to equipt will always be the same, but it's linked to the recipe which is fine, but the wording of it is odd. r1_equip1 makes sense but I think should be changed to r1_requiredequipedtool (to help force people to think which tool does the player need to have equipped) The confusion happens because below Equipment is the crafting window, which at the bottom has required devices, but it's edit name is r1_requiredtool which doesn't make sense, because it's not a tool it's a device (blacksmith shop vs hammer)
In my opinion a 3rd box, part of the Recipe below equipment should read required device since almost everything needs a shop/bench or something of the like to make THEN comes the "Crafting box" which should be named other info.
Like I have said before I don't know about editing the info boxes, which changes are wiki wide, and whatnot, what do I need to know/ look at to learn what changes can be made and what they'll effect. Also Thank you for approving (or who ever approved) the ability to help out more with the wiki as a whole :)

I have passed on your message to Sigilbaram who is in charge of the redesign of this wiki — Game widow (talk) 13:01, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Request:[edit source]

Hello. I would like to kindly request adding separate wiki page for polish translation ( so I could begin translating there. Thank you in advance. — ArrakisLiF (talk) 14:37, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

I will send in the request — Game widow (talk) 14:50, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

How much time it may take until the page is prepared and available for editing? Will it be added under "In other languages" list once it's added? — ArrakisLiF (talk) 23:01, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

I apologise for the delay, but it should be up very soon — Game widow (talk) 02:10, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for a quick response and adding the page. There are few things that are bothering me a bit, though.

  1. "Claim the wiki" button should probably disappear from the left side of the page.
    • You had not clicked the button, but I've deactivated anyway
  2. Each time I am saving changes made on one of the wiki pages I am getting error code 500, but changes on the page are saved (fortunately)
    • I've launched a rebuild request, hopefully, that will fix it
  3. Favicon is missing. But I am guessing it will be added sometime soon.
    • Favicon is there, it just takes a while before it shows up
  4. pl wiki is the only one that has golden 'Official wiki' tag at the top left side of the Gamepedia navi bar. Not even the original (en) has that. It would be good to add it there and on de/ru ones.
    • all 4 wikis now have the badge

Once again, thank you very much for such quick response. I didn't click the button because you granted me administrator rank there before I made enough contribution (technically) to be able to. Thanks for the help, I'm all set there. One more question though. I might need to clear - delete some outdated pages on the main (en) wiki at some point. May I receive permissions for that? — ArrakisLiF (talk) 19:29, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Of course :) ... let me know if your run into any problems — Game widow (talk) 19:33, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

I still haven't received permissions for pages deletion on main LiF wiki. It's not needed ASAP, but it would come in handy and surely will soon enough. — ArrakisLiF (talk) 01:24, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

French wiki[edit source]

Hi there, it seems no one asked you before for the opening of the -fr pages, could you help us because we started translation few time ago but we didn't asked before :) thanks

It was requested and should be up in the next day or so — Game widow (talk) 12:31, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
The wiki is up, but i am waiting on a fix to bring over the pages you have already translated. Who will be the main admin(s)? — Game widow (talk) 15:47, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
THANK YOU Widow ! This is a great step for the french community. Sorry for all the work you had to do for us, I promess we wont mess up anything and do it exactly how it should be in the future ! Me and Khan will be the main admins for now, please. Sorry to insist but is it possible for you to add me on steam please ? or give me your mail in some private way ? I find this way of communication not easy at all (my steam name is : "Darial (Fab)") Thank you again you are the man --Dariounet (talk) 23:39, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm actually a woman :D ... and you can email me at — Game widow (talk) 01:54, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
Hi there ! Game widow or anybody else may help me... I took the exact code from the official english main page for the french one, and translated it... but, I met some issues... I repaired them all except one : I cannot center the life is feudal banner and when I reduce the browser window size, the board bug, there is a big blank atop the banner... I cannot explain it, maybe a tag missing, maybe a very small syntax error but even with a comparison, I cannot catch the bug... (Khan_fr)
Hi, i've been out of town all week, but i will have a look — Game widow (talk) 18:11, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

How to add the cn LIF wiki?[edit source]

I really want to make the cn LIF wiki. How to do this?

cn ? what language would that be? — Game widow (talk) 01:41, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Oh, sorry it is Simplified Chinese.

ah, OK, we use zh-cn :) So to start, have a look at the Translation guidelinesGame widow (talk) 02:53, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you i will look that page
Like that: "Life is Feudal Wiki/zh" ?BoundlessHaung (talk) 04:49, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Exactly :) If you could start with the links on the main page, i will get the ball rolling for a fully separate wiki and then move your work over — Game widow (talk) 10:50, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Well,let we get a fully separate wiki.Thank you —— BoundlessHaung (talk) 13:05, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

OK, it's up, here. Here's a list of categories to translate: Life_Is_Feudal_Wiki:TranslationsGame widow (talk) 17:00, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

I think there are only a some minor strings to translate to play the game in Simplified Chinese. There are only 2% to translate. Maybe you (BoundlessHaung) can visit this page and translate some of thee strings?!? Crowdin-translation Stuntman1bob 18:30, 31 August 2016 (GMT+1)

Videos on the Wiki[edit source]

Hello Game widow, first at all sry, we might edited the same page and I've added back what you removed, but I removed it again ;)

I have some questions about adding Videos links to the wiki:

  1. Is it generaly allowed to add Videos that are about LIF, for example turtorial "How to craft nails" ?
  2. Is it okey to remove them if I discover that these videos are incorrect or most of it is incorrect?
  3. Is it okey to make videos, where I show people how to edit the wiki? (and then put it on my profil)

For example the programm "Notepad++" that can be used to look up the database of the game. When you want to edit the correct amount of materials to a recipe.

yes, yes and yes :) — Game widow (talk) 21:01, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Last (not so serious) question:

  • Can you add a sub to my User talk and pretend to be very thankfull for all the work I put on this wiki ;D (its so empty)

But please don't give me a Beta-key for the mmo or alse I'll only spend my time there instead of in wiki pages...horrible idea.

Multiplied items with the same name one page?[edit source]

I was about to creat the page for "Flag", because there exists one on the DE wiki. --> Now the one who created it, just named both Flags "Flag", that seems to be right, because ingame there is only one Name for it.

When I created the "Burning Head" I added (1) (2) (3) to the iteam names, even if the ingame name only is "Burning Head". The Question is, if thats okey? because I also added a picture to see which ones they are. -->

So, when I would creat "Flag" shall I add it with numbers on it with an image or add like the german Flag page with both ID in one iteam. And does it makes any diffrence?

Basically it's a choice and the only rule is that whatever you decide, you remain consistent in all similar cases. The guardian of this wiki is Camberme, though i've not heard from him in a while. Perhaps you could try discussing this with him. If you get no response, then do what you feel is best but make sure that all similar cases are dealt with the same way. A good rule of thumb for anything on a wiki is "you don't have to be right, but you should always be consistent" — Game widow (talk) 15:00, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

I would like to request replacing Life is Feudal wiki logo on the top left corner with this image:

Best regards. --ArrakisLiF (talk) 16:41, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

Sure :) It might take the image cache a little while to catch up, but i will change it right away — Game widow (talk) 17:46, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

Have you read this ? If you begin translating pages (ideally starting with the main page, then i will create a wiki for the Korean translation. Sound fair? — Game widow (talk) 11:53, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
