Wow, thanks so much again for adding the DXHR news reports! I didn't realise that video existed; I'll go watch it now and try to fill in any blanks. Oh and one small thing; the "references" function is for sourcing information in an article, like at the end of Wikipedia articles. I know its confusing because what you included are references, but in this situation the word has a different meaning. Just so you know, references like the lemon-lime thing should go in the Trivia section.
I was wondering if you could read this blog post that I made if you get the chance. Your opinion on the matter would be really useful. It'd also be a good idea to read the comments too to see me and ResistanZ's discussion so far. Thanks!
This is an idea that occured to me but I want to see what you think of it first. You know how we have different articles for some computers from the same location, such as the various ones in Sarif HQ and Tai Yong Medical HQ? Well do you think it'd make it easier for people to navigate through all the various computers if we made pages that grouped together all the related ones? Example: We create a page called "Sarif Industries computers" and put links to all the ones in Sarif HQ and maybe even the ones in Sarif Manfacturing Plant (that could be put on a seperate article either). I feel like at the moment, it's difficult to find computers from a specific location since they're split up into different articles. I think I added a "See also" to some of the TYM computers but we could scrap adding a big list and just link to "Tai Yong Medical HQ computers" which in turn links to all the rest of them. What do you think?
That would be a really good idea if we can get it to work properly. A while back I tried to make our Navbox's similar to the W3C standards one (so we could add subgroups) but I couldn't figure out how to do it. If we can find the source code for Wikipedia's Navbox template we should be able to get it to it work. This is apparently the source for the template which isn't very helpful. I checked Wikipedia's Common.js and Common.css MediaWiki pages though and there seems to be stuff about Navbox's (NavigationBoxes on the js page) there. I reckon that's the actual source for the Navbox template but I'm not sure. Should we try it out?
I was thinking of adding the DXHR computer navbox's to articles soon. I used the template you created with slight modifications (removing the custom styling and having it set to collapsed). You can see it here. I think you're using CSS from your own Wikia.css for the navbox's so I'm not sure what they look like for you. Is there anything about the style or content that you'd like to see changed?
As for the content. I'm going to add other Omega Ranch computers in a few days. You could add smth like [[Omega Ranch computers|Other]] to the "Omega Ranch" row in advance; or I can update the template later, after I add that page.
Ok I added the template here and included a redlink to "Omega Ranch computers". Feel free to edit it if you change the name of the page. I'm going to start adding the templates now but since there are quite a few, I'd really appreciate it if you could give me a hand :) Don't worry if you don't have time though. Thanks!
Maybe. For the time being, I'll change it back to the JPG version. On a related note, the SVG flags don't display in categories as the thumbnail for the page (see here), and currently, the cached images are used in the Read More module, so presumably the flags won't show up there either. Is there a benefit to SVG's over, say, PNG's in this context?
Sorry, I didn't noticed the missing thumbnails in Category:Countries. In that case, I guess it's probably better to roll back to the previous flags for aesthetics reasons?
SVG is vector, so it scales smoothly to any size (200, 315, 427 etc.) and doesn't become pixelated. So it's a perfect candidate for shape-based images like flags. But looks like Wikia doesn't support it fully. I've sent a bug report about UK file rendering, and will send another one about Category page thumbnails - so hopefully they'll have that fixed.
No problem, it's strange that they work fine in the articles but not for the thumbnails. Well if the problem isn't fixable, then maybe that's the best option. Let me know if/when you get a reply to the bug report and we can make a decision based on that.
