As you may have noticed, I'm not around very often anymore. This is caused by RL time issues, me hardly playing the game anymore and achieving my goal for this wiki.
When I came on this wiki, it was a mess. I cleaned it as much as I could without administration rights. When I finally adopted the wiki, I deleted many pages, reorganized categories, integrated the portal system on the main page and added various templates.
I'm not saying that the wiki basis is set up, there are always things to streamline, templates to add, etcetera. I'm also not saying that I will leave the wiki. Requests for new features can still be made on my talk page and I will work on them. However, I will refrain from content editing unless it's purely fo…Read more >
I've just created a first version of a monster info box template, which I called Monsterbox.
For now, this templates shows the main picture of a monster (the one used in-game), at which monster locker level it's unlocked, its favorite target and wether it attacks ground and air monsters. Since this is the first version, I can not guarantee it's working perfectly yet (or is complete). So, all your comments are welcome in this post!
I'll start with integrating the boxes on a couple of pages. Note that these boxes include all necessary categories into the page, there is no need for putting these in manually anymore, yay!

Just to be clear, both the templates mentioned above are used in the Userbox template.

I'd like to remember you all that this wiki, nor its staff, is officially connected to Kixeye, the company behind Backyard Monsters.
If you have any messages directed directly to the creators of the game, make sure you post them on the official Backyard Monsters forum.

I've just pushed through a new update of the Userbox template. The following changes have occurred:
- Alliance field; add the name of your alliance to the box;
- Platforms field; add the name(s) of the platforms you play the game on;
- Changed champion field to work with the new template (see below).
The new champion template
I found the current way of handling champions in the userbox a bit too complicated, so I've changed it. If you had a level one Drull, you first had to type 'Drull level 1'. Now, with the new Champion template, you would fill it like this:13:03, August 12, 2011 (UTC) Read more >
