Hey Effy~ since we're the ones who edit the wiki the most recently, I thought I would run a few things by you so that we're on the same page :D.
- The Inactive category right now is being used only for pages with working URLs (not including Wayback Machine links), mostly so that we can keep track of where all our TCG URLs are. I think Sheva/Jams was having an issue with broken links with the old wiki, so she initially took them out when she made this one.
- Em dashes for dates: I'm not sure about this one, since I always thought they were only for breaks in sentences, while en dashes are used for dates o-o;.
- URLs: Is it standard on wikis to have URLs without the http:// in them? We've been having URLs with it on the wiki since the old one from what I can see, and I generally just followed whatever formatting was on the wiki :p If soooo, we have a lot of URLs to channngee xD
I'm sure there were a few small things I wanted to ask, but I forget right now... I'll bug you later when I remember them D: but I just wanted to run these past you so that we can figure out how to format stuff so that the formatting can be consistent between our edits (and so I know if I have to do a lot of edits to older pages.... lmao) ^^.
Inactive category - ack D; I didn't realise; I thought they were for all inactive TCGs ever. I can go back through and remove them. c:
Date ranges - I've seen em dashes for continued date ranges to the present (e.g. 2015—present), but then I have seen mixed usages for specific date ranges, so… which would you like to do? I assume if we change to em dashes, we'll have a lot of work on our hands, so I'm not completely against using en dashes for dates.
URLs - I was just changing them because they looked nicer. :s It's like the inclusing of www. Since we would have a lotttt to change, I'll just try to find all the ones I changed and fix them back. Because... eh. This thing has over 2k pages. >.>
Whilst we have a thread/thing going, would you be up for a favicon? Like, maybe two cards kind of diagonally, I don't know if I'm making any sense... but I can pixel. :p
Hmmhmm how about we keep the en dashes for dates, but we can go with your formatting for URLs? :D I was doing that for the template in the first place since that's what you used (and you were the one who made them in the first place~), but doing the URL everyone else like that would be nice since it would be consistent that way ^^. And I agree that it looks nicer!
The favicon sounds nice ^^!! And no worrriess, we're both admins anyways, so we can do whatever ahahaha. Just have to make sure we're consistent between all four of us admins =P.
Haha, it definitely takes patience, time and practice! I learned from The Quilting Bee, which should probably be on here…? Idunno. We each had our own patch, which we made, to trade and add to our "quilts". Anyways, Deviantart also has really good tips... I forgot my login to the site, though. D;
Hmm... I was thinking we should only use the player template on member profiles that actually have more information. For the smaller profiles (Blair, 0x, Aaron), the information ends up being redundant since it's the only information on the page anyways (and it makes the page look more cluttered with it in). For Sheva, yours, and my profile, they look a lot better since we have more information on our pages~.
I'm actually not finished. I was/am working on a way around it, but with holidays approaching, it has made it a little difficult to continue things.
Speaking of my profile, please don't edit the things in the template (e.g. the bullet points for things), because I had actually contacted the Wikia community regarding an issue I had with it, and I was using my page as an example, and replies aren't always the quickest, and now I'm going to have to wait a little later for a fix on an issue I was having, as December is really busy for me.
What's more, whilst I've a Wikia for Zest, it's better/easier to use the Wikia an issue is regarding, because different Wikias could have different problems, hence the reason I was using my page for it.
No worries; wasn't planning on touching the bullets since I saw the note on the player template page about you working on fixing the bullets in the template! :p
As for the issue with the player template on smaller pages, maybe we can stick to putting it on one page for testing before rolling out the template on other short pages? I actually played with the formatting for shorter player pages, but I haven't found a way to keep the player template on short player pages without it making the page look clutterred :C. I've been busy too, so haven't found a way around it either x.x;.
That works; I had a method that works well on short pages in general that I was testing on another Wikia, but I've not been able to do much with it lately, and so I just decided to be done? Idk. It was collapsible, but it kept giving me headaches. >.> I know how to make collapsible tables now, but if the short player pages look fine without infoboxes, that's fine, too.
