As a small note, while you're working on the templates, I'd like to suggest that the "Kanji" section be renamed as "Kana" since Kanji refers to the Chinese-based symbols, whereas Kana refers to all three symbol alphabets the Japanese language uses. It's been picking at me forever that I'll put in a character's name in, say, hiragana or katakana (the latter of which most of the names are written in), and the field for it says kanji.
I've been trying to edit the front page header template with the images of the characters in it, trying to put in a picture of Lucy and Nyuu both for their character slot, but none of the changes seem to be sticking. Do you know how to change that? It isn't behaving like a normal gallery template when I try to change that section.
For some reason, under the listings for Mainpage Header Template, there are two separate listings, and I've never been able to figure out which one is the 'true' one. Let me take a look at this and get back with you on it.
Maybe it would be better to put only name Lucy under her image because everyone knows her under that name? If you put Lucy/Nyu people could think that there are two separate characters. I mean they all share one body afterall.
With both being the most dominant personalities of one person, that's the entire point of them being shown together. It isn't fair to Nyuu to ignore her entirely since she's the one most active throughout the series, being the most dominant of the personalities Lucy has aside from Lucy herself. They're both of equal importance, so they both are there.
It's the same thing for Mayu and Wanta sharing an icon/portal. One is important to the other, especially in terms of characterization, so they're placed together for the sake of simplicity.
Ok my friend. I understand now. No problem. About Contents, Social Media and Featured article boxes. Do you guys agree to change them into green-white pattern so they also match up Forum, Sites, Random cover and Quote pattern?
Ok, take a look at and see what I did. You will need to add some CSS to your MediaWiki:Wikia.css file to get the colors the way you want them and to get headers centered. There is help available in various places, but you can get started with Tips and tricks at the Portability wikia.
You have IF statements that will blank row X if "Row X title" is not set. That is non-standard in the way infoboxes work. Usually is it the presence of "Row X info" that determines if a row shows up in the infobox. Do you want to keep it the way it is, or switch to the "usual" method?
I'm going to change as little as possible, just in case. I should have a demo working here in a few minutes I think. What page would you like me to use as a test case? I will cut and paste the info from that page into the "Usage" part of the template and you can see how it's going to look before you deploy it.
I've noticed that some of the infoboxes don't have a very eye-catching design, mostly the human characters since their boxes don't stick out due to their coloring. I was thinking about streamlining their design, giving human and diclonius characters alike their own uniform infoboxes and stuff like that, and making some of the information flow better (like using kana instead of kanji for Japanese names because kanji refers to a specific set of characters and a lot of the characters have names given in katakana).
I'm not quite sure how to go about doing that though? Or at least, it doesn't look like I can really experiment with their designs since they're templates. I've been wanting to add more photos to the galleries but don't know how to poke at those either.
I'd probably have to give you extra authority. Let me crack another level of Lego Hobbit and get back to you. In addition to this, there's some kind of infobox conversion project. This might be right up your alley.
Yeah, I was a bit ban-happy in the past, so I wanted to give them a chance. They blew that, didn't they? They're gone, and I plan to promptly re-ban them every year I'm here. From now on, nonsense-insertion is an auto-ban. In case they have friends, I have also raised the protection level to admin-only on Orphanage Girl.
"When Will They Ever Learn; Oh, When Will They Ever Learn?"
They most certainly did, with today it has been the fourth time in total that I had to undo those changers. It's odd as it doesn't make any sense at all as there is simply nothing in the canon that gives away her name, let aloen that Stacey can hardly be called a Japanese name.
And don't even get me started on the notion of her relatives.
Here's a question. We now have the ability to disable anonymous edits. People would have to register to edit, ending nonsense like 'Stacy' and Mayu possessing an extra appendage, so to speak. At the very least, no one can run up and vandalize articles without going through the process of creating a username. That at least slows things down. But it also potentially discourages the casual user, who just wants to stop by and test the waters.
Should I enact this restriction? It doesn't seem to be asking much, yet our circle is so very small, I'm concerned about locking that state in forever. What do all of you think?
Hey there, I would liek to ask if it were possible for me to get a page on the fanworks? My first EL fanfic is almost finished and with getting ready to start publishing the 2nd I think I should add my own works to this wiki.
It certainly wouldn't be impossible, though it would be a layered effort, as in 'Lucy' currently existing as a redirect to Kaede. That said, I think I will keep the article titled as Kaede for the present. But since I don't now and never wanted this to be a one-user operation, I gratefully accept your edits, some of which I will debate, but like Mister Gaiman said about cats, if two fans ever actually agreed completely on a fave series, something bad might happen. :)
