  • A while back, the Base Layouts pages were created. They allow users to share their bases and vote on others. The intention of adding pages like these was to increase community involvement in the wiki. However, the response to the Base Layouts pages has been underwhelming. I would like to know why people are not sharing their bases and try to determine another way to increase community involvement.

    Have you shared your base layout on the Base Layout pages?

    Finally, propose and discuss your ideas to get people involved on the wiki. Would you like to see things like community competitions, recognition of active contributors, or more community pages like You and Base Layouts?

    • Is there a choice for "I'm helping out by adding to Blackguard Bases" in the third poll, because that's my vote there (I'm clearly not blind or else how am I typing this, but I know that it somehow should be a choice XD)

      Oh well, I'm assuming that's under the firat choice

    • Suggest your ideas for fun pages and other community activities.

    • a fun page, maybe like mini layout where we can suggest layouts and such. Like this[1] but for Boom beach. Like I said with a discussion board, vote on favorite designs, and other things along those lines.

    • That sounds like the Base Layouts pages except I do not understand the relation between the link and the rest of the suggestion. I do not think we will be able to make a base designer for Boom Beach here.

    • My answer to #3 is: "I started editing here because I found out about it through the CoC Wiki."

      Same, eh the base layouts page need further explanation.

    • I tried to make the instructions on the base layouts page as simple as possible. What do you think I should change about them?

      Maybe have an image upload to help us continue the list? Like in, when we want to continue the list, just let us choose that reflects our base instead of typing out the filename of the image manually. It just seems a lot easier.

    • Top 10 Lists is an extension made by Wikia. I do not think we can modify it like that.

    • ......


      I mostly clash but I try to support and explain certain things why they don't work or why they are critical to success. Like no spaces in COC

    • I have added buttons to the Home page that go to the community pages to increase awareness of them. I have also tried to simplify the instructions for the Base Layouts and You pages as much as possible. Hopefully, these changes will help people find the pages more easily and use them correctly.

      Please discuss your ideas for new community pages.

    • A polls page?

      The CoC wiki has one, and on it there was one comment saying "maybe we should put this poll up on Boom Beach wiki".

    • I guess that is fine, but how about something that gets people to edit?

    • I will add to my you page, just never got to it

    • The Polls page has been created. It encourages edits through the comments section, so that could get some people involved.

    • How about we take a different approach to the Base Layouts pages? Instead of Top 10 lists, we have pages with Placeholders like the one below. It has a nice interface for adding images, and text is taken out of the picture entirely. Also, Top 10 pages have very limited editablilty apart from the list items. This way, we could customize the page, and make the page as user friendly as possible. I am pretty sure we can come up with a way to make the page generate a new placeholder once one is used.

    • No doubt an awesome idea, but it'll require some advanced coding.

      I'm pretty sure you and Spot would do anything to make the Base Layouts pages easier to add to.

    • I think if u put base layouts into a category other than fun like I think defensive strategies people will know and see it
