Nested tables

There's nothing wrong with Curse. You were just missing a bunch of </div> tags. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:28, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, you're a step ahead of me, I noticed they were missing but was still trying to find where to add them. Curse probably shouldn't let our frames mess up the entire page though. --Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 22:38, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
No, they should, because then it makes you practice good coding. :P —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:45, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Haha yes it does, but its not good coding to rely on the clients' good coding. ;P --Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 23:11, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Offering help.

I'd be glad to help you on some of those normal mode missions. :-) Ariyen 23:49, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

That would be great. =) There aren't a lot of normal mode ones left but I've been playing them based on which ZMissions I have. Contact me in game when you get a chance. --Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 00:00, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

character template

Would it be possible for you to fix User:Kirbman/CharacterTemplate with something like #ifexist character image | display it | link to Special upload with Destfile= ? Alternately, you could allow me to do it. The reason is that some people use your template and don't have images uploaded, and this seems to be the most thorough way to keep them from appearing on Special:WantedFiles. --◄mendel► 15:37, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Does that actually work, though? I thought #ifexist still caused entries to appear in all the various "Wanted" special pages. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:41, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Okay, it won't show up on WantedFiles, but it will still show up on WantedPages. Is that acceptable? What about when we finally decide to clean that list up, too? —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:46, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
*sigh* GWW uses a template which acts like #ifexists, but that uses DPL in the innards to figure out if the file exists. Which we can't do. *le sigh* --JonTheMon 16:48, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
The link to where the image should be makes it much easier for them to upload the image to the right place too. You guys have to remember that not everyone is good with wikis as you. Is there a way you could tell the WantedFiles/WantedPages not to include the user space? --Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 19:51, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Mendel's suggestion was to replace the standard wiki-generated redlink (which generates entries in both WantedPages and WantedFiles) with a function-generated redlink (same URL as the standard redlink, but doesn't generate an entry in Wanted Files (still generates a WantedPages entry due to the #ifexist:, however)). Use CSS to make it look like a normal redlink, and the reader wouldn't know the difference.
I can't find anything in MW's configuration that affects which namespaces Special: pages include in their results. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 20:19, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I meant. The redlink for the image is an URL we can generate ourselves, and you can just make the link text red. That's a good point about Special:WantedPages, files do show up on that list when they're linked to. It's not as simple as I thought. :( --◄mendel► 21:50, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
OK, well if you think it would be helpful and wouldn't change the appearance or functionality, you're welcome to add it. One of the people with some of the missing images is a good friend of mine, so I'll see if I can get him to upload images for his characters, then at least the number of wanted files will be reduced. --Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 21:55, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Another change that would be helpful and easier might be to allow for an image= parameter; it allows me to insert image=image missing.svg on the character page, and that saves me the redirect, too. Again, I can do that for you if you'd like. --◄mendel► 09:58, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
It would still send them to the same place if they click on the image right? --Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 19:56, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
No, it wouldn't. It would mean that if the automatic name isn't linked, I can add the code quoted above, and when they do decide to upload an image later, they'd have to edit their page and either delete the parameter (undo my edit) or change the image name to get a redlink for uploading (or upload first and then change the name, of course). If somebody uses the template to create a new character description, everything will work as before.
One possible modification that would do this would be to change
As you can see, if the image parameter is not specified, everything would work as before. --◄mendel► 22:14, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

As the other header I did today didnt make any sense what so ever, I hope to make more impression with this one. Or, as is more likely, embarras myself more than anything. Yes, that is far more likely

But, that is not of your consern. It's your BIRTHDAY!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 10:12, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Arnout! --Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 22:29, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
A belated happy birthday to the other wiki member who shares my same birthday :P -- Isk8.png Isk8 (T/C) 11:24, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
