Template talk:Campaign Setting Rating/meta

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


This was mostly made because people kept wondering about the rating, even though I thought they were clear. I agree with the template.   Hooper   talk    contribs    email   16:03, 30 August 2009 (MDT)

Unless I am mistaken only a vague system was made for the reasons behind each CS's rating. --Green Dragon 16:19, 30 August 2009 (MDT)
Yeah, and that may be for the best. I just made this because I tend to be the one clearing it out and inevitably there is always someone who gets upset if they get a "low" rating thinking I did it because I didn't "like" their setting - when it is actually has nothing to do with that. Feel free to alter it or such, or if you think we should alter our rating system, but I'd say it works fine (just most people don't pay attention to what each rating actually means).   Hooper   talk    contribs    email   19:18, 30 August 2009 (MDT)
I moved the page so it can be used. I added links to the page from Template:Campaign Setting Rating. I also changed the wording so it is not user specific. Thoughts? --Green Dragon 12:11, 15 January 2011 (MST)
I think this is great. It could be because I wrote it (lols) but I think some users take the rating as a judgement on their personal creativity and ability, which is wrong. Its very important that it be looked at as a Wiki based rating of completion. This is great. Also, have I ever mentioned that Breadcrumbs are fantastic. Wikipedia has really missed out on such a phenomenally useful tool.   Hooper   talk    contribs    email   22:09, 29 May 2011 (MDT)

Completion of Derivative Settings[edit]

Specifically regarding this setting, how should we handle the completeness of derivative settings that either lack enough lore outside of mechanics explained in game elements and real world history to make any lore sections unnecessary, or are so overwhelmed with such information that it would be more succinct to simply link to an external wiki dedicated to the work of fiction? Should this be the default assumption for derivative settings, or viewed as a last resort? Would it come with a rating penalty for not actually containing the information on the wiki, or would it not matter because the section is technically fulfilled and complete to a great extent due to being maintained by its own community? --Ref3rence (talk) 09:16, 22 January 2021 (MST)
