I hate to say, but I must resign from the sig staff. It has come time that I move on in life, but I must say you have been a wonderful friend! My parents wish that I stop using wikia, and I do not want to upset them. I'm sorry this has come up so sudden, I'll still try to get on IRC every once and a while.
Farewell Voltrob, and I wish you all good luck with your fanon and future endeavours future endeavours.
just clarifying, I thought that "for other uses" is enough? Since the Aang page just has that, so do most other pages that I've seen with disambiguation pages. I mean, what would be the point of putting up a disambig page if you could just fit "some" of them on the top? But I could be wrong..
As the sole member of the Linking Legends, I am sorry to inform you that it has been deleted according to the policy on Avatar Wiki:User groups, particularly since you remained the only member and the group did not meet user group standards for up to 1 month.
t will grow in no time. It is going to become the central page for the Ask Iroh column in the Ba Sing Se Times. I plan on sprucing it up with some nice code. I've always felt that the BSST needed an Ask column, and it will soon have one.
It will be part, I have to ask KMP if I can place a link to it on the BSST page. I was thinking about asking him if it could replace the Make a Subscription link with an Ask Iroh link, considering it was made obsolete when we introduced the forums.
Wouldn't it be better to just make it a regular column in the BSST instead of just a separate page? On it's own, it is quite useless imo as there are more than enough more visible and thus more used options to question people than that page.
If you're going to run the column, the logical place would be your email, or even Kettle's as the editor, but what's the point of having a question/answer column in the BSST when the place to ask said questions is completely public so everyone can already see the questions and answer them?
Then that brings me back to the original point of having something like that being public.It's better than that people ask you questions via mail, but having them public like that is useless as their questions will then likely be answered anyway by others who stumbled upon them.
It appears there may have been a slight misunderstanding regarding where the result template for discussions was intended to be moved to per the forum. The forum stated it should be moved to the top of each section, whereas many think it should be placed between the proposal and the discussion itself. Personally, the latter looks cleaner and more orderly to me, as the result template addresses solely the discussion, not the entire section. Should we start a new forum clarifying this?
No, it was clearly stated that the discussion closed was to be placed at the top of the section, not under the proposal. It was also stated that with this new format it will be the same as the war room. I think you might be the only one to misinterpret it, so I don't see the confusion or the need for another forum.
Godsrule disagrees as well, -but that is irrelevant. I know the original discussion is over and had reached a consensus, but I was suggesting a new forum for this change, which seems to make more sense.
No, my point is that the content of the template suggest otherwise, since it refers directly to the discussion versus the entire section. Also, the War Room is different because the proposal is part of the discussion and does not have images or quotes above it that would ruin its aesthetic look.
For now, my way stays, because my proposal in the war room reads as such: I propose that we change this so that the results of the discussions are put at the top of each section instead. Each person was agreeing to that, if you think otherwise, take it to the war room.
As one that is usually the one to close discussions, I have to back up Sparks here. Putting the closing template directly under the title of a page and above the images does not look good, even confusing. When I first scrolled down the pages, I had to double check which discussion when now in fact closed, as the title alone does not stand out enough in comparison to the template to clearly make a distinction between the previous and the next discussion. Putting the closing template under the images or the quotes, it is still at the top of the page -as the forum decided- and it is still high enough so anyone who looks at the discussion immediately sees that it is already closed while still staying tidy and clear.
Per Lostris, I think that the way Lady, Sparks and I are doing it is much better. I was on the PIC on my phone and it looked confusing, so I edited it on my phone to change it. Voltorb, you didn't specify what top meant.
Looking back at the forum, it seems Voltorb did specify what "top" he meant. The proposal reads: I propose that we change this so that the results of the discussions are put at the top of each section instead.
Everyone therefore agreed to putting it above quotes and images, so we will technically need to start a new forum for this change.
We can do that, or we could go for the more practical solution and just go with how the majority thought this was to be interpreted and with the interpretation that looks the best when put into practice. A new forum would be useless as the last one didn't gather much attention, and I doubt that many more will care this time.
We're not overturning any forum, we're still sticking to the consensus, namely adding the conclusion of the forum at the top. However, there seemed to have been a misinterpretation as to what exactly was meant by the top -regardless of what was apparently said in the forum, as I have gathered from your statements here that you would not have supported it in its current form if you would have known that it was to be added right underneath the title. In any case, the forum consensus provides us with a situation that is practically not desirable as it creates a confusing situation. If we move the result template down just a little bit to be below the actual proposal, that problem is fixed and we are still in line of the proposal.
If you want to open a new forum about that, be my guest, but I just don't see the need to wait at least 3 more days for something that has such a clear cut fix already and only affects so little people of the community.
Hey Voltorb, I hope you don't mind, but since you also posted your issue -which seems to be resolved by now- on the help desk forum, I have removed the blog about that as there is no need to keep a duplicate around.
Hi Voltorb. Anyways, I came here to tell you I moved your new usergroup's requests page, since you had mistakenly created it as a mainspace article. Never use Main setting for such pages, always use Avatar Wiki, and you'll be good. ^^"
I know, there is a lot to do about links, but a whole entire usergroup for it seems a bit over-the-top, since linking is very basic and requires little skill to fix or adjust. Any user, whether a member or not, can work with links.
I'd like the ~~~~~ to appear where it says here, but when I try to enter them into the media wiki page, they appear as a time stamp as to when I added them to the page. I want them to be added as the current time when I hit the button. Is there any way to fix this?
