  • Finally got to Small Favor searching for your ref, & from what we know about Demonreach, I don’t think the Denarians took the Archive just to set off some Nukes. They obviously knew what Demonreach was, so I think they meant to use the Archive to crack open the Well below. They’d get a virtual army of old gods & evil things to make them even stronger; spooky.

    Also, have you read about the FANDOM App? We can get the Dresden Files on there, another ditch attempt to make the Wiki more accessible & visible. We just need an 1067x600px image (liek dis). Any specific images you have in mind? I was thinking we might just resize Demonreach.png to suitability.

  • I’d always found referring to her as a witch odd, since the white council refers to their members collectively as wizards & not “witches & wizards”. I saw the edit & thought to just let it be.

  • I was going to do them preloaded templates after I got out of the shower, but while I was in I was thinking of what the Seven Laws script would be like, so I went ahead & wrote it down before I forgot it. I timed it in text-to-speech, & it comes out at roughly the same time as w:c:tes:Dragon Priest Mask (Skyrim), but before I could save I realized I needed to make sure everything I wrote was verified since changing the video after it goes up can be a huge pain, & so I hoped over to Seven Laws for verification only to notice all the refs it needed!

    Well, it definitely doesn’t need refs anymore at least :}

    • Gee, thanks! It means the hours I've put in the DF wiki aren't wasted. But it wasn't particularly difficult: I had crystal clear in my mind what was required of the templates. 95% of the job... :)

      BTW, what is the ifeq namespace you've introduced in the templates for? Scratch it, I've found it in the community help.

    • Aye it just keeps them from categorizing template pages as articles, or articles as templates.

  • It’s not really /on-topic/, but I wonder what you think of this? It’s just something I made, it’s meant to be a wordmark for the Portability Hub, to match the wordmarks like those at the FANDOM Open Source Library & Community Central. It’s based on this:

    Just fishing for honest feedback :) By the way, I thought you might find this amusing:

    • Looks like it's going to work; but then I think you know Portability better than I do.

    • The image isn’t really well received, aesthetically.

    • OK, then you've got your answer; you'll need another one. I'm not sure, this not being my field, but it might be you need a more minimalist wordmark. Perhaps a good starting point might be a version without the red waves.

  • Coming this march. I got about a week to set up Preloaded Templates for the main page createboxes, would you like to do some?

  • So they are basically going to completely redo the migration, this time with a closer attention to detail as opposed to just flipping a switch, so hopefully this time the process will be considerably smoother. Again, still do not recommend that you edit old posts (old as in, used-to-be-in-the-forum old) or the existing Categories, since FANDOM & I will be trying to doctor them, but you can make new posts at your leisure.

    • Not much of an activity anyway. Forums have a purpose with a community, which we don't (hopefully yet) have.

  • Currently we use Wikitext ''' (equivalent to <b>) & '' (equivalent to <i>). That’s usually fine, but I think you should read those documentations. The three tags above have different meanings on mobile & for web readers (for blind people). <i> means italics, but <em> stands for emphasis, so while it is italic, a web reader might pronunciate it differently than a regular <i>. <cite> also produces italics, but is meant for the title of a work (a book, a graphic novel, et cetera) & has different semantic meaning than <i>. Similarly, <strong> stands for Strong Emphasis & is treated differently by mobile phones / web readers than simple bold text.

    Basically where I’m going with this, it might be a good idea to use these different tags in different situations. I have not started doing so yet myself, but I think I may soon make it a habit, especially in templates.

  • Aight so I finally got around to cleaning up the Discussion Categories post-merge, & unfortunately things came through extremely buggy, some tricks I expected to work no longer do & the user-data for each post got stripped. I am in contact with FANDOM Staff trying to fix things up, but in the meantime do not move old Discussions posts to their proper Categories, we are going to do that at some point, but I do not think either of us are capable of moving them without stripping the formatting & breaking the post (as I did by accident, hopefully FANDOM can revert my edit somehow >.<).

    We will hopefully get stuff squared away, but for now just exercise extreme caution with Discussions Moderation.
