{{Welcome}} is easier to type ;). -- Prod (Talk) 23:39, 18 December 2006 (CST)
Thats actually how this got created, though in the opposite direction :P. And thank's for telling me about archiving...I didn't realize my talk page got that long :P. -- Prod (Talk) 23:48, 18 December 2006 (CST)


For the moment, having the Table of Contents is part of the standardized style. Refer to User talk:Prod#Main Page Links for specifics. -- Prod (Talk) 23:17, 18 December 2006 (CST)

It's more for consistency. If a user is used to having a ToC on the main page they visit, it might annoy if it's missing. And the usability of the ToC is a bit better than the sidebars since you can see the whole layout more easily. However, the ToC is kinda ugly for the FF7 guide anywayz, and should probably be cleaned up. -- Prod (Talk) 23:31, 18 December 2006 (CST)


Good work on those two new Final Fantasy templates, but you missed a few things. Perhaps in future, could you do what I did on this diff? It just helps keep things organised. :-) --DrBob (Talk) 07:12, 2 January 2007 (CST)

Zelda templates[edit]

First off, those templates look cool :D. However, I would recommend against changing link colors, since it breaks with site consistency. About the actual problem, I had tons of fun trying to change the visited color since (to me) it seems its the same color as regular links. I'm not too sure how to do it inline like that, so you should probably ask DrBob, he's actually a web developer. -- Prod (Talk) 12:49, 5 January 2007 (CST)

No problem :). -- Prod (Talk) 13:57, 5 January 2007 (CST)


Copy User:Prod/bluecloud.js to User:Argash/bluecloud.js, without the admin links option (then the standard purge/clear cache). This was the main reason I wanted user js enabled :P. -- Prod (Talk) 13:57, 5 January 2007 (CST)

Neverwinter Nights quest presentation[edit]

I'm interested by how you're doing the NWN quests. A simpler way would be laying it out like this:


The difference here is that readers can get right to the walkthrough without opening the brief first. {{InvisiClues}} is another possibility for some or all of the info as it maintains the page layout without revealing anything, although it's not JavaScript-powered just yet so some readers may find it a bit too fiddly. Yet another way is to have every quest on a subpage (which is what I've done for Gothic); separating them means it's very likely those who got to the quest page itself are wanting spoilers anyway.

Anyway, I hope at least one of my ideas has helped you. :) GarrettTalk 05:58, 24 April 2007 (CDT)

Alternatively, if you wish to keep relatively the same format, you can do it like this (it avoids the icky pink spoiler template):
Whichever way you like better... --Ryan SchmidtTalk - Contribs 15:53, 24 April 2007 (CDT)

NWN AOL[edit]

Oh, I thought it was like one of those flash games. It might be best to just have a one-page, walkthrough-free story/description page, just as an intro (some of the more relevant stuff from the wikipedia page). -- Prod (Talk) 19:11, 26 April 2007 (CDT)

I'll do an import of the page (to keep history). Do whatever you feel is necessary after that. -- Prod (Talk) 20:13, 26 April 2007 (CDT)

Shortcut template[edit]

I think that it isn't necessary to advertise the redirects to guide pages (aka {{shortcut}}). As long as the redirects exist, I think it'll be just fine. Really, the only thing that should use {{shortcut}} would be pages in the StrategyWiki namespace. Otherwise you'd have something like:

Which, granted, is a BIT excessive (Not only does it list EVERY redirect, but I had to "break" the template to get all those to appear, check the code to see how), but you can easily see the point I'm trying to make with it. --Skizzerz Scissors.pngSafety Skizzerz Talk · Contribs · Spel Chek™ · VFG · RTFM 15:32, 5 September 2007 (CDT)

We're gamers. The acronym of the game is usually well known, otherwise we make it easy to find (multiple redirects, cats, and related games). --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 17:51, 5 September 2007 (CDT)

CP Archiving[edit]

Hi Argash. Please leave the process of archiving CP to sysops from now on. If you are concerned about the length of CP, feel free to leave a note in the Staff lounge. Thank you very much. Procyon (Talk) 09:10, 7 September 2007 (CDT)

Welcoming new users[edit]

Hey Argash, just letting you know that it was decided to not welcome new users until they made their first contribution (I was doing this too until I was told about it). Thanks! Baejung92 23:13, 9 September 2007 (CDT)


Thanks for adding those Piece of Heart boxes to the Twilight Princess guide! I'll make you a {{thank you}} box a bit later once I find a suitable image ;) --Skizzerz 18:57, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

I grouped the heart pieces by location instead of by order in-game... which means the numbers jump all over the place. I can go through and re-number them in the order that they can be attained in-game if you think that having them numbered properly will help readers. --Skizzerz 16:01, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh... that was a mistake on my part then, since 9 should most certainly follow 8 :) --Skizzerz 17:14, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
If I knew of a way, I would have done it already. Taking a picture of the TV screen is too crappy, and there aren't any Wii emulators I know of that work, so I think the only way is to purchase a screen capture device... and those aren't cheap as far as I know. --Skizzerz 17:28, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
I think you can use a video camera with an S-Video cable attached to your TV. I'm not sure if this works considering I haven't got the camera yet and you also need to have an S-Video plug on your TV. Then I assume you transfer the film to a computer and then use print screen to get a screenshot. But I'm not sure this works so I wouldn't try unless you already have a video camera. --Melon247 17:44, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
There are lots of ways, but an external USB capture card is among the cheapest. Here's the relevant section of my talk page. Starts six paragraphs down. Hope it helps. - najzere 00:36, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
