Notifications Link Appears Twice

I am logged into SW using the Dolphin skin, and noticed that the Special:Notifications link box appears twice, one right next to the other. Both appear to function equally well. Is there any reason for this? Thanks! Wjk (talk) 22:56, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Series templates format

Currently, the series templates commonly have lists of games all on one line, separated by only {{Dot}} templates. This makes the code hard to read and work with, and it's not very semantic. It should be possible to have the game lists formatted as bullet lists in the code, so it'll be easier to read and type, and use CSS to make it still be displayed the same way.

I agree that your proposal would be preferable, but how can CSS be used to do that? Procyon 20:42, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
The template could wrap the game list in a DIV element with a class name, let's say, "series-game-list" or something, and the CSS could have something like:
div.series-game-list ul, div.series-game-list ul > li {
  display: inline;

div.series-game-list ul > li:before {
  content: "\00B7\0020";

div.series-game-list ul > li:first-child:before {
  content: "";
  display: none;
This will display the list as a line of text, and render the dots as pseudo-elements before all but the first list item.Wanderer (talk) 21:47, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
The idea sounds pretty good to me too, can you set up a demo template? We can then look into using a bot to make the change. -- Prod (talk) 21:56, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
I set up a demo here, but I can't edit the style sheet. Wanderer (talk) 00:29, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
I've updated common.css. You should be able to see the changes if you purge your cache. -- Prod (talk) 01:35, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
Wow, that looks pretty cool. Nice job. Procyon 01:47, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
Fyi, you guys are all great and appreciated. --Zaiqukaj (talk) 05:43, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
I think we need to clean up a bit of the styling still, but it is a cleaner solution. -- Prod (talk) 22:31, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
I just added a few more examples with different formats on the demo page. Wanderer (talk) 23:58, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
I don't think it's possible to switch to lists like this without changing how they look. It seems impossible to have an optional first "heading" in the list format. The option where you've included it with the first entry seems less intuitive than just using the {{dot}}. -- Prod (talk)
Trying to keep the headings on the same line does seem to be proving problematic. Wanderer (talk) 05:20, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
