Colored Backgrounds on Cells?[edit]

Hello, how do I get colored backgrounds on cells? Normally the cells are white/gray, but I want to make it a different color. Thanks.

Check out mw:Help:Tables#Column width for an example. -- Prod (talk) 21:32, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Upload Wizard Doesn't Have English[edit]

Is there any way that the Upload Wizard used for multiple images at once have English as one of the language options? It really feels weird having my descriptions labeled under Bahasa Indonesia. Antwan 04:06, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, it's a known issue. Prod (talk · contribs), who installed that feature for us, has not been able to find a fix for that issue yet. You're fine if you keep using Bahasa Indonesia, all that flag is doing is setting a fancy little flag icon next to the description in the little template that Upload Wizard uses. It has no actual impact on what you write there. Procyon 18:49, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Sub-Categories for Images[edit]

I decided to take on RollerCoaster Tycoon as my next walkthrough project, but when I was about to upload some more images, I noticed that the image gallery has two subcategories. I've never seen this before. Is that allowed? And if it isn't, how can I remove them? Antwan 09:35, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

It's to further help organize large sets of images. Category:MapleStory images does the same thing as well. -- Prod (talk) 18:21, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm not staff so you can dismiss this as unsolicited advice but, since a category displays 200 images per page, I'd only use the existing subcategories or add new ones if the guide is likely to require more than 200-400 images. If this isn't the case, then you can ignore them and move existing images to the main category by editing each subcategory image (currently 26 in total) to replace [[Category:RollerCoaster Tycoon ride images]] or [[Category:RollerCoaster Tycoon maps]] with [[Category:RollerCoaster Tycoon images]]. Once those categories are unused, you can edit them to add {{Delete}} to mark them for deletion. Onderduiker (talk) 18:56, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

NES Classic Edition[edit]

A user made this change. This seems like it should be it's own system, since it's completely standalone and connects directly to the TV. -- Prod (talk) 16:51, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

That begs the question of whether standalone, non-expandable systems are systems in the traditional sense at all. An arguable alternative is that the whole system could be treated as a compilation cartridge with no system at all. I think the footnote is worth leaving on the Category page, linking to a main game page similar to Namco Museum or something similar. Procyon 17:46, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
I'd treat them similar to compilation disks - only difference is that it's a hardware device rather than a collection of software. --Sigma 7 (talk) 01:19, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
Maybe we should have Category:Single-use systems? That way it's clear you don't actually need an NES to play the games. -- Prod (talk) 20:17, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

I've crated Category:Dedicated systems to match what wikipedia calls them. I've also created NES Classic Edition as a compilation style game, so I think it's a decent combination of what was suggested. -- Prod (talk) 00:56, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
