Thanks for the heads up :) I am very new to wiki-ing, but I will try to maintain an active role here. Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to do, besides what I am doing now.--Qbz 10:56, October 31, 2009 (UTC)

this seems like a pretty inactive site, so any help you can provide is wonderful. I was too ambitious yesterday and had to revert some of my edits.
What is great about it being so inactive, is we can shape this site as we like, with no one saying, no you can't do that. That was the problem with Strategywiki that I saw before. Anno1404 16:11, October 31, 2009 (UTC)
Hi there! Thanks for the barnstar. I must say I was surprised when I saw it - I had never heard of barnstars before. But, having looked up what they are, I like the idea! I also have a request: could you fix the filenames of Spion.jpg and Bauchtaenzerin.jpg (spy/belly dancer)? I forgot to translate them before hitting the OK-button and now I can't change them. Thanks! --Grilse 02:59, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
Sure, I will download them, delete them, then reupload them with a new name. Anno1404 03:45, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Uploading savegames

I'm planning to write a walkthrough for the scenario General and would like to add a series of savegames as illustration. However, their combined size is rather large: 85 MB. Is that possible on this wiki, or should I find someone else to host them? --Grilse 11:05, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

I think the quick answer is: no you cannot host it here, BUT you can upload it somewhere else, (like youtube, although youtube only allows 10 minute videos) and we can use, to link to them and play them here:
what format are they in?
From the upload page:
Maximum file size: 10 MB
Permitted file types: png, gif, jpg, jpeg, ico, ogg, pdf, xcf, svg, mid, odt, ods, odp, odg, odc, odf, odi, odm.

Oops forgot to sign. Well, they are Anno 1404 savegames, so .sww-format, which is a compressed package of some XML files and other stuff. Nothing image/movie related. I wasn't really planning on making it into a movie. My own ISP only allows for 100MB of storage, so that's not suitable for long-term storage either. I'll skip the savegames then.--Grilse 18:50, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
thats a real shame. I will ask around. Anno1404 19:46, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
I should probably note that Ubisoft's 'Gateway to the World' allows for sharing of savegames, but that requires an online profile which I don't have because then I would need to be always connected to play.--Grilse 20:33, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Thats really good to know, thanks. Anno1404 00:34, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Google spreadsheet inaccessible

The reference you gave (that was you, right?) for the values in the table under Goods_/_resources#Gold_per_minute is not publicly accessible. Could you move it somewhere public so that the values are verifiable? Thanks! --Grilse 03:19, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

I think i noticed that too. I did not give the reference originally. Sorry. Anno1404 07:49, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

Image deleting rights

Could you authorize me to delete images? I would like to replace all bad quality icons with the ones I showed on the Talk:items page, and delete duplicate/obsolete versions in the process.--Grilse 12:56, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

{{SITENAME}} - Anno 1404 Guide Wiki ⇒ Anno 1404 wiki

Do you think it would be possible to change the value of {{SITENAME}} from Anno 1404 Guide Wiki to Anno 1404 wiki? That would complete the move from to I've tried to find some way of changing it, but couldn't find anything.--Grilse 16:12, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Aha, it's possible and instructions are here. If you agree, could you file the request?--Grilse 16:12, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
Just saw your message, missed it before, I will look into this later. thanks. Anno1404 12:26, December 28, 2009 (UTC)
The site name was changed for us last night by a friendly neighborhood Wikia staff member --ThatFreakBob 13:53, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

Title for "Comparison of storage and market buildings"

I've completed the comparison of storage and market buildings. I'd like to make this into a separate article, but haven't been able to come up with a good name for it yet. "Comparison of storage and market buildings" is a bit too long an article title, I think. Can you think of anything that would be better?--Grilse 13:31, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

Campaign guide and quest pages

The updates you made to the Campaign Guide recently have been excellent. Fleshing out the individual quests and the recommended order to perform them in is great. When I started creating the individual quest pages I originally had the intention of transcluding them into the campaign guide to replace the content that was already there. Once the quest pages started taking shape and now with your recent updates to the guide it's become clear to me that that idea would never have worked :p It's good though because I think what's taking shape now is much better than what I had thought of.

I updated the quest navbox to a navbox with collapsible groups that doesn't take up quite as much room as the old one. Generally, I think, people are going to be browsing through the individual quests in one chapter at a time anyway so hopefully having the quests from all the other chapters (and continuous game) initially hidden will help prevent information overload.

I also went through and cleaned up some of the quest pages: adding them to categories, cleaning up the code and text to make things consistent across all the pages, etc. I've only made it (maybe) halfway through the pages that are up right now. I'll probably pick back up on them tomorrow morning though (it's late here and I'm sleepy!) Anyway, keep up the good work :) --ThatFreakBob 08:36, December 26, 2009 (UTC)

Campaign guide

I was looking at the Campaign Guide just a few minutes ago and it's coming along quite well. I know you've been pouring a lot of work into it and it shows but the page is also starting to get long and somewhat unwieldy. I was thinking it might be a good idea to split the individual chapters off into their own guides. What's your take on the matter? --ThatFreakBob 21:57, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

i planned for splitting the different chapters of the guide. there is already pages made for them, currently redirected to Campaign Guide, you are welcome to split Campaign Guide. Anno1404 18:27, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

New page

I made a new page called "Demo". It going to say stuff about the demo version of the game. 
I meant to title it "Demo Version" but, yeah. I will edit it, add a link to download the demo,
 and add info later. Can you change the title to "Demo Version"? Thank you.

Expanding the focus

Hi! I'm Paweł "Ausir" Dembowski of the Wikia Content Team. Given the upcoming premiere Anno 2070, would you guys mind this wiki's focus to be expanded to cover the entire Anno series of games, past, present and future? If you agree, we would move the wiki to and add information about the upcoming game. Ausir(talk) @fandom 21:12, April 15, 2011 (UTC)
