NKF, add XComRus (http://www.xcomrus.com/conference/) to the list, please. It is a russian forum about X-Com. ---=Troll=- 10:03, 1 October 2010 (EDT)

Wouldn't it be better to add the XComRus forum link on the Russian version of the Main Page? If it's in Russian, it's not of general interest to everyone (sorry). We already have a link to the Russian Main Page on the Sidebar, I would think that is enough. Spike 12:10, 1 October 2010 (EDT)
I think it might be time we rethink if the forum links should stay on the side bar. They were fine up until now because for a long time the Wiki has only been in English. But now that we are getting various languages added to the wiki, perhaps the forum links should be moved to their own separate pages? -NKF 12:28, 1 October 2010 (EDT)
That sounds like the best idea. A sidebar link to "Forums" and a Forum page, broken up by language. Plus a link on each language's Main Page, jumping to the section for forums in that language. Spike 14:35, 1 October 2010 (EDT)

Enemy Within (2013) Link ... To help being separating the EU and EW content. --Flipmcf 16:33, 22 December 2013 (EST)

I've been thinking about this but I haven't come to any conclusion. Where would the link point to? The XCOM: Enemy Within DLC (EU2012) page? My question here is that EW is an expansion, not a stand alone game. Hobbes 07:25, 24 December 2013 (EST)
It is on the console version and having two seperate tables may make it less cluttered. --Ditto51 07:39, 25 December 2013 (EST)
No reason to do all that. EW isn't entirely different or graphically updated in comparison to EU, in contrast to EU 94 and TFTD (similar graphics but differing gameplay). Plus most players know EW is an expansion pack for EU. If willing to make a link there, then maybe it's time to start making (EW 2013) pages to make sure everything is separated... --DracoGriffin 12:50, 25 December 2013 (EST)
I could see a point in having a link to EW since its the "new" thing but my definition of a stand alone game is something that is completely separated/new from the original, something that EW doesn't fit, even on the console edition, since it always requires a EU copy present to be played. My thinking here would be more of the solution presented in this Games Wiki, where the expansions to the different Civilization games are considered to be a part of the games, not stand alone games.
Ditto51's remark about the cluttered EU2012 Table made me also think if there's already too many links on the existing EU table. Any opinions on that? Hobbes 14:58, 25 December 2013 (EST)
What about losing the separate DLC and removing any specific Base Facilities --Ditto51 17:23, 25 December 2013 (EST)
What about this?

I don't think any of that will fit in the sidebar to the left. Ha ha - er, never mind. No, I agree, if we made a separate link for EW, we'd have to make a separate section for all the DLC and that would just clutter it up. EW is an expansion for EU2012, albeit one of the more chunkier expansions. -NKF 17:50, 25 December 2013 (EST)
