Request to add new company 10/14/19[edit source]

I've recorded our new star systems that have been discovered by my organization and made a wiki page for it: First Intergalactic Empire. Also, I am kind of a newbie in this whole wiki editing process! Grandadmiralvile (talk) 15:31, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

OK, I'll give them a review. I left a message on your user profile page about some items that you can address for starters. Once those are done, lemme know and we'll review again. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 16:01, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Adding companies 9/24/19[edit source]

I've put together a large number of resource bases that I'm wanting to introduce as a company. I have all the things listed under "requirements", but I have no idea how to.begin adding it here.

I'd appreciate help or links to resources that can guide me through the process of doing this because I don't really know where to begin. Vanyelmage (talk) 03:20, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Well, my first suggestion would be to look at some of the other company pages in the wiki to see what other editors have created. Not that you have to follow them exactly, but it will give you an idea of a general format. Once you've reviewed, then you can follow these steps:
1) in the search bar, enter the name of your Company and search for it. You are, obviously, unlikely to find it <g>
2) You will see the phrase Create the page "xxx" on this wiki!, with the name of your company in red
3) click on the red link, then pick Company from the resulting list of blue links
4) this will open up a new page with our standard company boilerplate and some instructions.
5) go through the page and enter all the information you have in the relevant areas. You may not have info for all the areas, and that's OK. But don't delete the section headers - they are there for future reference.
6) when done, save the page
7) As for bases, follow the same basic instructions above, just pick Base instead of Company
8) once you are satisfied that you have all the information entered for the requirements, drop a note back out here and ask for a review.

Hope this helps! Ddfairchild (talk) 03:36, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - The map has been updated to Beyond 9/9/19[edit source]

All companies, that have not updated their Embassy page to Beyond, have been removed from the map. --Artifexity (talk) 10:48, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Gek Trading federation company request 8/8/19[edit source]

Hi, can someone add the Gek Trading federation to the map? we are still documenting systems but will be finished soon.

Please review the requirements for adding a Company to the company page. Also check the notes before dated 7/17/19 for further clarification. Once the requirements have been met, let us know and we'll review. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 21:59, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
the civilization has now met the requirements. Please add it the map. thanks
The Gek Trading Federation was added to the Companies map. --Artifexity (talk) 09:16, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
I have reviewed your pages and made modifications as necessary (mainly the Alias names section and using the proper categories). Please review these changes so they can be part of your future star pages (I'm assuming there will be more <g>) I also reviewed and updated your embassy page a bit. Having said that, I have added your company to the Company page. Our cartographer will add it to the map. Welcome Ddfairchild (talk) 03:05, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request for new company 28/07/19[edit source]

So it turns out as a so called 'expert' I've been asked to join a partnership in the creation of a new company. This is a collective, one I'm not too interested in but alas I find myself crawling back due to request from friends. Believe me this wouldn't have been my idea after last time. And since I have the save data and wiki account it's of course my job to do both those things. But i'm by no means the primary user here. Ownership is under my name however...I suppose. Well since I'm involved I might as well put my input in so I decided the company is a collection of all my other stuff, saves me valuable time having to discover yet another five planets etc etc. Well I hope I can merge the other systems discovered with this as this company is the merger with the other companies/civs I made. Hey I need to be recognized as the creative genius somehow right? Either way I hope you can help, well the others out, and put this one on the map under the spot of lets say LEVIATHAN and take that one off the map since it's still on there for some reason. Thank you for your time. BaileyJack 21:37, a lovely sunday night in the UK

Hi BaileyJack, since LEVIATHAN is already recognized as a Company, it would be just an exchange. That's right. However, on the page of LEVIATHAN, a note must be made that this page is no longer to be classified as a current Company. Since StormchaserCAI has already introduced to me on Reddit, there should be no problems with the owner rule. I will soon adapt the map. For the recognition of RAIN as a Company, I would like to wait for Ddfaichilds assessments. Thanks for the request. Welcome back! --Artifexity (talk) 14:10, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
Good to speak again. I've added the note onto LEVIATHAN. Hopefully the request is complete then hopefully can get it into the Federation next. Thanks for your help! BaileyJack 17:34, 29/07/19
As long as all of the old companies are either marked that they are no longer in business (or have been merged into the new company), that should be fine. Ddfairchild (talk) 03:40, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
I've updated everything that needs to be updated (hopefully). Thanks for the help. BaileyJack 22:00, 31/07/19
Totally forgot to mention RAIN has moved spots to the Acrumikil Cluster, (coordinates should be on that page and if not use Larden). Basically the center of the galaxy. Thanks. BaileyJack 20:16, 26/08/19

COMPLETE - Request to add Company 07/23/19[edit source]

The Galactic Trading Company is now ready to be listed as company. The requirements should be fulfilled. fd_df

Hello fd_df, welcome! I added Galactic Trading Company to the map. Artifexity (talk) 14:47, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request to add new company 7/17/19[edit source]

I've recorded all the star systems that have been discovered by my organization and made a wiki page for it: Olympus Alliance. It's within the EPM. I plan on adding many more soon SparkiinJayz

Did a quick look at your system pages - these need to adhere to the standard formats for star systems, and most of those sections are missing from your pages. Are you familiar with our set of preload pages? That's what you need to follow. As far as your company page, the following sections are expected there. You do have some of them, but this is the order and basic section names we look for:
  • Summary
  • Mission
  • Location
  • Headquarters
  • Regions
  • Branch Offices
  • Background
  • Partnerships
  • Guidelines
  • Structure
  • Joining
  • Employees
  • Gallery

Go ahead and make these changes and let me know - I'll do another review. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 23:38, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

I have updated my company page to better fit the format of the preloaded pages. I made a few modifications to give this company my own flavor. It should fit your specifications now.

Sparkiinjayz (talk) 01:03, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Pages and company home page are reviewed and approved. Your organization is now listed on the company page - welcome! Ddfairchild (talk) 05:21, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

I've recorded all the star systems that have been discovered by my organization and made a wiki page for it: The Romefeller Foundation. Also, I am kind of a newbie in this whole wiki editing process!

Welcome to the wiki - I have reviewed-and-approved your Headquarters page and star system pages. Approved, and added to the Company page. I am sure our cartographer will add you to the map, if that hasn't already been done. Ddfairchild (talk) 15:25, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
I'm afraid I couldn't find any coordinates. I've got the Romefeller Foundation added to the center of Euclid until further notice. --Artifexity (talk) 16:04, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request to add new company 04/01/19[edit source]

I've recorded the prerequisite amount of systems, and have an established headquarters and am hoping to now register the Trailblazer Firm. I was also wondering whether i can name it Trailblazer Corporation (although it's a sole proprietorship) just because it avoids the confusion of having company in the title (if not that's perfectly fine). RazorFangWrecks

So you want the page renamed to Trailblazer Corporation? Ddfairchild (talk) 04:41, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Just wanted to add that the link has been moved to Trailblazer Firm. I've updated all links, this is just for future reference. Sorry for the bother. RazorFang (talk) 09:54, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Awesome map 04/01/19[edit source]

The new map looks..FREAKING COOL!! Amazing job Artifexity! My company is the blue ring correct? The Godfather (talk) 10:54, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, everything is still in development. Yes, MegaCorp is blue. Have you already seen the United Corporate Alliance Map? I still have to adjust the map. Requests or suggestions for improvement are welcome. Artifexity (talk) 14:57, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Oh wow thank you for creating that map! Looks awesome! I do have an idea for the map, you can add all the branches for all UCA members instead of adding the circles? The Godfather (talk) 2:53, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
I'll think about it and adjust the map accordingly. Thanks for the feedback. Artifexity (talk) 08:49, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Done. Artifexity (talk) 11:18, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request to add new company 03/31/19[edit source]

Hey there, not sure if this is the correct manner of doing this, but I believe it is. I'd like to register the Trailblazer Company, but need to know quickest way to get my coords.RazorFangWrecks

Hello RazorFangWrecks, it lacks 1 documented star system for recognition as a company. 5 documented star systems are the minimum requirements. Check coordinates by building a Signal Booster. Welcome. Artifexity (talk) 08:33, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request to add new company 03/30/19[edit source]

Request to add a new company. Intergalactic Exploration Corporation would like to be formally recognized as a Company. Peacebomb

Hello Peacebomb, I just answered you on the civilized space page. Intergalactic Exploration Corporation was listed on the companies page and all three branches were added to the map. Welcome. Artifexity (talk) 11:46, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Pre-built Template 03/28/19[edit source]

This is up to the admins but I feel that companies should get there own template when creating their business page. Just how civilized space, regions, planets etc have theirs. Thanks! The Godfather (talk) 10:20, 28 March 2019 UTC

Couple of comments on this.
1) the preload templates are available for pages that have lots of entries in the wiki, and continue to have many new ones created. On the other hand, we only have a dozen recognized companies, with a dozen or so more that use the Company infobox (and several of those are just subsidiary companies) So there hasn't been much demand for company pages.
2) I did a quick look at those we do have out there and what those pages contain. The content varies widely, but the most common features are those that a civspace would also contain (other than the infobox of course, for which we do have a specific Company version)
At this point, I think most people who woutgisant to start a company can use the Civspace preload, and then just switch out the infobox. Fill me in on what you think a Company preload should provide? Ddfairchild (talk) 14:35, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
All vauled points I just think it would be easier for new companies to have this template instead of "copying and paste" from others. If a template is created heres what I think should be on it -
  • name =
  • image =
  • galaxy =
  • quadrant =
  • region =
  • system =
  • headquarters =
  • founder/CEO =
  • branches =
  • type =
  • product =
  • platform =
  • mode =
  • release =

Thanks! The Godfather (talk) 2:22, 28 March 2019 UTC

OK, I must be missing something. What's different between those items and the Company infobox we already have?
Template:Companies infobox

Ddfairchild (talk) 18:34, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

We don't have the option of selecting it when we're creating a template page. The Godfather (talk) 2:43, 28 March 2019 UTC
OK, I see what you're getting at. However, with the creation of companies being few and far between, at this stage it's just as easy to create a new page using the civspace page and yes, copy-and-pasting the company infobox. Now if we start seeing a run of companies, maybe it'll be time to create a pre-load <g> We'll keep it on our watchlist. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 18:50, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
In this case I am agreeing with Mr. Godfather - and I would expand this to an appropriate 'Branches' page too (something I have been gearing up to create for my overly-large main page). True the Civ page and the Base page respectively may be very similar its how players come to that conclusion is what I would like to assist. I think there is a bit of thought process us 'Companies' are going thru and it's specifically that we don't want to be a civ or a base per-say we see ourselves (at least I do) as something different and I look at myself as a company specifically because I am not a civ. Regardless of the fact it is only interchangeable words and similar information... in the end proper wiki organization will only help the wiki, and making things (ie clear Company pages) easier for players/editors to find only promotes more documentation for the wiki which is a win win. Also, for the Admins to create these proper Company and Branches Templates you can oversee the evolution and process for the future. Intothedoor (talk)
Couldnt agree with you more Mr.Door! In the past few days actually we've seen an influx of new companies. I think maybe its time to add the company templates? The Godfather (talk) 2:56, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
(I am thinking out loud here) - Maybe we should re-think this - I would almost recommend a re-imagination of the way we get to this information. Start at the main first page of our wiki NMS wiki in the 'Civilization section' it feels incorrect to me: Factions, Lore, Game Mode, Modding and Multi-player (maybe) have nothing to little to do with 'Civilizations'. I would recommend those topics be included in a Game in general related section. Where as a Fan Fiction section would include things like Civ space (GHUB and others), Companies, Journals. So I would suggest we go to the top and re-configure how our information is displayed and include Companies within a Fan Fiction topic. Intothedoor (talk) 20:53, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Actually, I do think that Factions and Lore have to do with civilization. Maybe not fan-fiction civs, but civilization they are. For that matter, Space stations also have more to do with civilization than they do the Universe per se. I agree with you on the Game Mode, Modding, and Multi-player, but we had to put them somewhere <g>. We shall gather the admin team together and confer - thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 04:40, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
In my mind civilizations/companies are player created fan fiction, where as Factions are the in-game races and the page talks about what those in game (game created) races are; just as the Lore page discusses in-game (game created) Lore. Journals and other fan fiction like documents would be player created Lore. I would suggest a new section be created with a title in the vein of in-game information (features and information). Of course just thinking out loud here :) Intothedoor (talk) 16:34, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
I was just checking the Template:Companies infobox/doc and what each of the companies filled out. I feel there are some inconsistencies and the template could use some tweaking. I propose that the Type should be used for the Company Categories abbreviations only and text written here will have a link to the Company Categories page. What is currently written in the Type, would be renamed as Specialisation or something like this. I would rename Product to Services as it can be interpreted more broadly and it may sounds better for companies, like GenBra Space Corp and Intergalactic Exploration Corporation, the Services: Galactic Information expression. Please give some feedback and any other ideas are welcome! Gorla (talk) 17:26, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
@The Godfather, Artifexity, Intothedoor, and Ddfairchild: Please share your opinions. Thanks! Gorla (talk) 20:47, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Now that I am understanding better, I do like what Gorla is suggesting. Adding Type: Non-Profit; changing Product to Services: Galactic Information; changing (current) Type to Specialization: Scientific Exploration and Documentation. That makes good sense to me. Intothedoor (talk) 21:57, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
I agree with that. That is a clarification and improvement. Artifexity (talk) 09:48, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
I would like to add my two cent on this; the template looks great! However I would like to add if the Company is a UCA member. Look the Corporate Alliance has grown considerably into a prominent 10 company alliance. We've worked very hard to built our alliance just like the federation has. Thank you. :@Artifexity, Gorla, and Ddfairchild: The Godfather 8:05 April 15, 2019
Thanks for the feedback and I will update accordingly the template. Also the UCA membership can be added for sure. Note to myself, the Template:Reply to does not seem to work as intended. Gorla (talk) 13:07, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Company Categories 03/24/19[edit source]

I've been brainstorming ideas to categorise companies based on there mission statements and to color code them on the map and I think I got something -

  • Sole Proprietaryship(SPs) - A company that is run by a single individual with greater flexibility of management and assists.
  • General Partnership(GPs) - A company with two or more individuals running it with no personal liability or negligence between the partners.
  • Limited Partnership(LPs) - A company with one or more general partners and a limited partner such as a civilization.
  • Mega Corporation(MC) - A more complex company with a large management team and structure usually five or more members.
  • Nonprofit Corporation(NpC) - A company with a specific goal or idea rather than in interest in profit.
  • Limited Liability Company(LLC) - A company of one or more individuals under a specific contract or agreement.

These are just a few we could incorporate. The UCA already has some of these like MegaCorp is well a mega corporation, Vy'Kea and LEVIATHAN are sole proprietaryships and Celab GALACTIC is limited partnership since Celab has ties to AGT. The Godfather (talk) 11:21, 24 March 2019 (UTC

On the newest map I tried to add the categories. As long as we can show all branches, the colors are not available. That's why I used numbers. If the assignments to the Companies are not correct, let me know. Artifexity (talk) 11:10, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Ooo I like it looks good. I see what you mean though but on the subject of that with having all company names on the right side will there be a limit? Companies will surely grow more over time and to be added. The Godfather (talk) 8:10, 25 March 2019 (UTC
Yes, there is a limit, as soon as there are more companies or the branches take up too much space, I will adjust the map accordingly. Artifexity (talk) 14:25, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Gotcha the UCA has a slew of companies waiting to be accepted once they meet the requirements. Also I created the Company Categories if that was okay to do. The Godfather (talk) 11:46, 25 March 2019 (UTC
Just to verify - each of these prospective companies has a unique and individual owner, correct? Ddfairchild (talk) 15:52, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
That's correct each UCA member control its company. Our discord server is prove. One member the CEO of Ghost Enterprises hasn't had time to work on his wiki as of yet. The Godfather (talk) 11:57, 24 March 2019 (UTC

Quadrant Corporate Sectors 03/17/19[edit source]

The Corporate Alliance has begun building four special "Hubs" as places where CEO's of Companies in their respective quadrant can meet, trade, build, and promote their Enterprises. It will be a free marketplace for all who want to conduct business on all platforms - PS4, XBox, and PC.

The first has been created in the Delta Quadrant with the coordinates -

  • 0BA0:0081:0F48:0112

When Artifexity has the time can he update the company map with the new Delta Corporate Sector. Much appreciated! Thanks! The Godfather (talk) 02:05, 17 March 2019 (UTC

Hello The Godfather, I've been thinking about Corporate Sectors. Result is the Market area, as a new category. I've added the category to the Companies map. The circle indicates that a Market area (Delta Corporate Sector), is under construction in this region. Otherwise, I agree with Ddfairchild. Artifexity (talk) 19:40, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Edit: I have undone the market areas. I think it makes more sense to wait and see what comes of it. In addition, I have added new branches. It is difficult to properly classify trade relations in this impenetrable network of relationships between the companies :) Artifexity (talk) 17:32, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
So are the "hubs" companies or are they civspaces? It doesn't sound like they are either. And if that's the case, I'm not convinced these belong on either the company OR the civspace map. It sounds more to me like they are a sub-organization of the Corporate Alliance. Thoughts? Ddfairchild (talk) 00:54, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Its hard to explain its not "hubs" but more like "meeting places" where CEO's can meet with others and build and trade. The Godfather (talk) 08:58, 17 March 2019 (UTC
I seen that thank you! I've expanded into a new region at the very edge of the Galaxy, more bases to come! To both of you, the Corporate Sectors still need to be fleshed out. We didn't know how to make them a "thing" yet. The Godfather (talk) 05:50, 21 March 2019 (UTC
