Hey there, I accidentally uploaded two images with the wrong file name. Since I couldn't rename the files, I reuploaded them with the proper name. Could you delete the first two? They're [[File:Louis Mason.png]] and [[File:Tim Reeves.png]].
...and risk the temptation of DELETING THE WHOLE INTERNET????
sure, why not? ;)
no, seriously - I'm not looking for a new adminship, but I'll certainly take anything to make editing easier; I'm hardly active on the marvel side anymore because it became too time-consuming; or to put it with a perverted spidey-quote: "I'll take the powers, but I'm not looking for responsibility."
Hey there, thanks for the help with the tables again. Sorry if I bother you once more, I'm not very design-savy, I'm more of a research grunt and I don't know who else to ask. ;)
So I've been adding stats icons to the various tables which saves a lot of space - and even looks decent on most pages (Items (Home Run High), for example. On others, it looks horrible, especially Activities (Home Run High). Do you have any more of your mighty HTML-wizardry to improve on that?
It's a bit of a pain, but if you want stuff on multiple lines in a table, sadly putting them on separate lines isn't the "best" way. Behind the scenes, whenever you put something on a separate line (in the editor) it will render them in a "paragraph" tag which adds extra padding above / below. This is true for both images and text.
Best way around this is to use the <br> tag and put them all on one line. ex:
[[File:Study (Home Run High).png|20x20px]] + 9
[[File:Sports (Home Run High).png|20x20px]] + 21
[[File:Fun (Home Run High).png|20x20px]] + 9
[[File:Study (Home Run High).png|20x20px]] + 9<br>[[File:Sports (Home Run High).png|20x20px]] + 21<br>[[File:Fun (Home Run High).png|20x20px]] + 9
+ 9 + 21 + 9
You could also just put them side by side and avoid the multiple lines issue, though it works either way. Although I would put them side-by-side (separated by a space) if there's no numbers next to them.
Edit: Nice job with the images by the way; they often makes things easier to read as well as more condensed. Plus make the page look better overall.
Lovely. Ah the good old days of putting a <br> tag after every line, I remember those from other wikis. Wasn't the idea of the visual editor that it would eliminate that sort of thing. ;)
Thanks for the compliment on the images. It was more an issue of not having enough space in the tables, but as you say, it just looks better. Plus: It makes the tables understandable even for non-English speakers (I noticed there's quite a few spanish and portuguese-speakers on this wiki...). BTW: Did I do the upload as suppposed to (That was always a big issue on other wikis), i.e. give the right file name and so on?
Visual editor isn't meant to make thing better, just simpler ;) It's mostly intended to get new editors willing to edit, instead of being scared away by wiki syntax. I just wish the VisualEditor worked like the previous one, where you could add html into the visual editor part and it would add it; the new one prevents you from doing so, forcing you to use source mode.
Oh, I actually forgot to check that for once; We actually have a rule that image names should include the name of their game in them. Categories help, but without a game name in the file name, it makes them hard to manage, and makes source mode name suggestions a lot more worthless. Edit: That said, I don't push the rule as much as I should in recent times. Renaming images gets kinda old =p
In that case: Thanks for being lenient - and doing the renaming for me (as I noticed). ;)
Thanks again for the help - good to see there's an active admin around. Then again, I guess this wiki isn't as work-intensive as others? I spent most of my time on marvel blocking vandals and negotiating petty squabbles between teenagers who were convinced that their favorite hero was stronger than the next guy's favorite hero which led to endless edit wars. Seems much more quiet here... ;)
"Active". I don't play Kairosoft games much anymore and thus don't add much content, but still try to monitor the wiki (although occasionally stuff slips by). I mostly just try monitor Reddit so I can get new games added for others to add content to. I'm sure this is on my userpage somewhere, but I monitor multiple wikis using a script I made, so it's not as hard to get myself to monitor consistently.
And yah, compared to a lot of the big wikis the community isn't very bustling; not to say we don't have nice people, but they never all seem to be active at once. Three months 1 person will be active, then kinda stop. Couple months later someone else will be super active. etc; people come and go. I probably don't help the problem much either; I'm an introvert and don't do much to push / promote community discussion. Although based on the Reddit, Kairosoft gamers might just not be the most talkative bunch; lots of lurkers. Might be due to the lack of story / in-depth characters to discuss combined with them having small games. But I guess the flipside to that is we don't have many trolls or hot heads.
If I have the choice, I prefer the troll-free environment. ;) Trolls suck up so much energy and in the end, you spend less and less time doing what the original reason was for getting involved with the wiki: enjoying games/comics/series.
I guess the Kairo games are pretty much perfect for editing on the side - most of them allow some free time in between "action phases". But I can also see how they attract a special crowd - mostly kids and/or retro gamers. Not the hardcore gaming power nerds you would find in more mainstream games.
For me, they're pretty much perfect. I do things on the side while playing them: reading, editing here, watching TV, even studying for exams. ;) I've been hooked ever since I discovered PL Story...
Sorry, it's been awhile since I played it, and I don't recall any specifics. Playable characters shouldn't be to hard to figure out since they have unique portraits. And I believe using the leader to talk to them is usually a safe bet.
Undoing vandalism is easy enough, while getting people to make small edits is hard. Creating an account is enough to drive a lot of the helpful small edits away. Or that's always been my opinion, as someone who hates making accounts on sites.
This is the first time you've friendly said about someone's vandalism, StarmanW. The IP address has nothing to do with you. It is only something related to admins of this wiki. Feel free to reply anytime to me.
Anyone may monitor the wiki and report / revert vandalism, that is why there is a public change log, and a big part of why wikis work. Only admins can block people / delete thing (among other things), but anyone can / may revert vandalism (although if it's a complicated revert or it's a wiki they aren't part of, they are welcome to request someone from the community to handle it).
Also, please don't speak on behalf of the wiki Antminnko2007. If a user is doing something incorrect either let the admins handle it, or report it to an admin.
Many of the Kairosoft games now have an option to load a .csv file from the load screen that includes translations for in-game content. Would it be possible to host these files on this Wiki? Since this is the go-to place for most of us, it would be phenomenal if we could do that.
There's a post about language packs on r/Kairosoft (stickied).
