Userboxes

How can I put my userboxes in a neat column on my page? They are currently a pretty ugly mess on my user page, and can be seen easily here. Some help would be greatly appreciated.β€”Justin(Talk) 00:21, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Help:Userboxes. Follow the directions on the page.User:Mandi/sig 00:30, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

New Project Suggestion

Since I'm tired of seeing multiple tiny articles on trading sequence items, I think we should create pages for the trading sequences of each game. For example, we make a page titled "Trading Sequence in Ocarina of Time" and place all trading sequence items on this page. We then redirect the small articles to the page. It would help to keep the wiki nice and lean. Can I get an approval on this?β€”Justin(Talk) 18:12, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

There are already pages like that.User:Mandi/sig 18:23, October 4, 2009 (UTC)
...then can we get rid of the pages for the individual items and turn them into redirects?β€”Justin(Talk) 18:27, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Not all of them are small enough to really fit nicely onto one large page. And there are several that could be expanded more.User:Matt/sig 18:35, October 4, 2009 (UTC)
I understand your point of view Neo. The proper procedure would be to place Merge tags onto the pages you think would be best placed into the Trading Sequence page and eliminated as an Items page. Get some opinions on it and follow suit. But I have to stand with Matt and Mandi that we should judge it on a case by case basis. In other news, good timing you have there, I just tweaked the merge tag to be able to include several pages in the link just type: {{merge|This Item|That Item|Etc|So On}} User:Axiomist/sig 18:41, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Hmmm...I may do this. However, I'm in a library and, as such, have limited time. I'm going to go ahead and get started, though. I'll try to get through at least two or three sequences worth of items.β€”Justin(Talk) 18:52, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Archive

Is this page ever archived? I feel that it should be, due to the massive amount of information. Most of it's unused and long dead, so why not clear it up?β€”Justin(Talk) 00:24, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Lol, I have no idea what this page is. Since the other one is like a discussion page, what does that make its talk page? weird...User:Axiomist/sig 00:26, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
I felt that I should put this here since I'm discussing the HC page.β€”Justin(Talk) 00:27, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
Done, Thanks for bringing it up. User:Axiomist/sig 00:57, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

No problem.β€”Justin(Talk) 01:25, 5 October 2009 (UTC)


RSS and Atom feeds broken

I'm trying to use the feed of the Recent Changes page, but it is broken. I think that this is because there is a space at the start of the first line, meaning that it doesn't validate. Please could you look into this. Thanks. (Edit: I've discovered that my newsreader copes with it fine, it's just Firefox's feed preview that barfs at the error) --• Pete β™ͺ | β™« 10:23, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Merging the X-Eye Reefs

I suggested this a few days ago, but no one's bothered to respond. I think it's a good idea because the islands are very minor and all perform the same function. Can I get some approval on this?β€”Justin(Talk) 18:01, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Well ya had bad timing there... It's been like a second Christmas with ST info. I'll look at each of them. I think the only gray area here is what to title the target page. User:Axiomist/sig 00:44, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
I think it should be called the Eye Reefs. Decent, no? And I've noticed all the ST junk popping up everywhere. I'm still playing PH, so I don't give a rat's patootie about it. :3β€”Justin(Talk) 01:52, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Eye Reefs sounds good. I'm going check out the pages now and will comment accordingly. I've a massive merge suggestion meself. Zelda Wiki talk:News 2005. User:Axiomist/sig 02:35, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Alright. I'll be waiting.β€”Justin(Talk) 02:46, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Collapsible Navs

Phew! Finished that merge. Now I'm curious about how to make a collapsible nav, much like the {{Fishman}} one. I checked the source coding for it, but it was ENTIRELY unhelpful. Can anyone provide me with this mystery of the universe? Thanks in advance!β€”Justin(Talk) 16:33, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Well done, check the bottom of my user page to see a few more examples of how the hide template could work. Also you might be interested in reading User:Axiomist/Wiki Philosophies. One of the reasons I decided to write it up was to explain the Inline Redirects a bit more. User:Axiomist/sig 17:20, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
There's a hide template? Strange...
And I read that page pretty much right after you made it. It fully explained them to me finally. I really don't see the problem with them, though. They help us reach our destination and provide a simpler means of trafficking for readers. Nicely done page, I must say.β€”Justin(Talk) 23:50, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Our Spammer's Back

With that damn Ugg boots page again. Someone kill it again, please?β€”Justin(Talk) 07:30, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

I think it's actually quite amusing. :P Fun to read, anyway. β€”Alter  {T C B H } 18:32, November 9, 2009 (UTC)
