Age of Empires Series Wiki

Hello Dunbanner, I have seen you currently are very active in this wiki. For a while during the months June to most of August 2017, You were suprisingly unactive during that duration. Might I curiously ask why? Were you on vacation or taking break? Balochistan (talk) 02:31, September 1, 2017 (UTC)

Hi, in fairness I've been relatively inactive for the past few years due to study commitments, so the past periods of inactivity can be chalked up to that and at times, general offline commitments. Regards, DunBanner talk page 07:30, September 5, 2017 (UTC)

Hello! I see you are currently making some changes to AoE III articles, just one question there: Why are you italicizing the captions? That's something we don't usually do, which is why I am confused. Our image guidelines also state otherwise. In general I think the captions in the infoboxes are redundant as they always show (or should, we have some work to do there) the described object's icon. MasterBroccoli (talk) 06:27, September 24, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing it to my attention. It's simply a mistake I've made while working to make the AoE III pages consistent. Especially since quite a few of them have had redundant captions from before, I'll remove them the captions. Regards, DunBanner talk page 06:33, September 24, 2017 (UTC)

DauHoangNguyen1999 to DunBanner

Thanks for reverting the page to normal, Richard Kienrams vandalized the Vietnamese civilization page with crazy Vietnamese pronounciations of English. That act of trolling makes our people look bad.

Image with better quality

Hi! I found a higher resolution version of your image, if you want to upload a new version of your image.

Ricky Robaina (talk) 05:34, August 28, 2020 (UTC)

Hi Ricky, you're welcome to upload a higher-res version onto that file. Regards, DunBanner talk page 06:05, August 28, 2020 (UTC)

Thank you! Ricky Robaina (talk) 00:16, August 29, 2020 (UTC)

News Page

Hi DunBanner, I replaced all abbreviations in the news Article for "Lords of the West", but I cannot change the header. I guess it's a matter of access rights. Could you help with that? Thanks. Majorman86 (talk)

Unfortunately, I can't either. You may have to re-create a new news blog when possible. Once that is live and showing on the news feed, I'm ok with deleting the original. Regards, DunBanner talk page 23:01, 18 December 2020 (UTC)
Hi again, I've remade the news post. You might need to "refresh" the news section to see the changes. No all that's left is to delete the old post. Sadly I don't know if I can do that, so would appreciate it if you can help me out (by providing instructions or doing it yourself). At any rate, I've removed the "News blog" tag from the old post so it won't appear on the main page anymore.

Regards, Majorman86 (talk)


If you use Discord, could you send me a message at Tephra#2372 There is something I wish to discuss with you in private.

Could you update the Knights of St. John, John Black's Mercenaries, United States, Circle of Ossus and Black Family Estate civilization icons (Flag Maltese Cross.png, Flag John Black's Mercenaries DE.png, Flag American act3 aoe3de.png, Circle of Ossus Flag.png, and United States flag revolt DE.png) to use the Definitive Edition flags?

Ricky Robaina (talk) 03:33, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

FandomDesktop preview and thoughts

Hey there! I'm messaging all of the active admins to collect your thoughts or feedback on the preview blog post for the new FandomDesktop skin we're rolling out later this year. To be clear, I'll be working with you all during the testing period to make sure the Age of Empires Wiki is properly updated for the new skin before it goes fully live.

Here's the blog post where the preview was shown:,_the_new_look_and_feel_for_desktop_users

Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the new skin! SlyCooperFan1 (talk) 20:06, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Civilization icon with better resolution

Could you update the Hausa icon (Flag Hausa.png) to use this flag with higher resolution?

RkyRC (talk) 04:24, 4 August 2021 (UTC)

Done. Thanks, DunBanner talk page 02:38, 9 August 2021 (UTC)

Icons for Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition expansions

Hi! Could you make icons for Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition expansions using these two images? Preferably name them as {{AoE2Icon|Lords}} and {{AoE2Icon|Dukes}}, respectively.

RkyRC (talk) 06:19, 11 August 2021 (UTC)

Cartography is in the DE game, the icon is in the DE files; the technology was removed but the effect is still there

QV87 (talk) 14:59, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

Ok, it would be best to place the icons in the Trivia/Notes section then. Both articles still note that their effects remain, but not as a researchable tech from the patch/DE changes onwards. DunBanner talk page 23:36, 28 October 2021 (UTC)

User making spam/troll articles

Hi, this fellow ( has made a bunch of spam/troll articles. I did a bit of searching but don't know how to report him for trolling; I added a delete template to one of their articles but realized that this might be something best/more swiftly handled by a mod. Doogie2K (talk) 02:12, 20 February 2022 (UTC)

Wanted to follow up and say thanks for letting me know, this has been addressed by the mod team. --DunBanner talk page 01:09, 23 March 2022 (UTC)
