I'm going to try transwikiing the whole StarCraft guide from wikibooks over the next few days. From there it will just be a matter of renaming pages, and reorganizing content. -- Prod (Talk) 00:27, 20 January 2007 (CST)

Sounds good :)
Um...not having used MediaWiki that often myself, is there a simple procedure for that, or do you have to copy & paste from one page to another?--RubyDragon 00:43, 20 January 2007 (CST)
I won't say easy, but there is a procedure to make it easier than copy pasting. It uses the Special:Export and [[Special:Import functions (import being restricted). -- Prod (Talk) 09:26, 20 January 2007 (CST)
I've got a list of the pages at User:Prod/todo that I'm slowly transwiking over. Some of the pages dealing with specific units seem like they could be merged into specific pages. If you want me to bring a specific page over sooner, leave me a message (I'm doing it essentially randomly now). -- Prod (Talk) 14:22, 20 January 2007 (CST)
The building/units/spells page needs some reformatting; I see someone started a buildings page by itself; perhaps we should simply split it into 3 pages: buildings, units, spells all separate from one another (abilities should be used rather than spells, not all are spells and spells can be categorized as abilities). --Notmyhandle 14:31, 20 January 2007 (CST)
Yea, that was one of the first pages I brought over. I'm wondering if the Units and Buildings pages should be split, since the pages like StarCraft/Zerg are really long, and they're actually fairly light on information. So we would end up with pages like StarCraft/Zerg units, StarCraft/Zerg buildings (spells go with the units). -- Prod (Talk) 14:50, 20 January 2007 (CST)
Multiple racial pages sound good to me. GO--Notmyhandle 20:11, 20 January 2007 (CST)
Good idea--RubyDragon 01:25, 21 January 2007 (CST)
All the buildings and units pages are in place, you guys will need to merge the StarCraft/Terran, StarCraft/Zerg, and StarCraft/Protoss info into the other pages, then mark them with {{delete}}. It would also be good if you guys can bring over the pictures (please follow the category and naming guidelines). -- Prod (Talk) 12:17, 21 January 2007 (CST)
Thanks :). Transferred all Protoss buildings from Protoss to StarCraft/Protoss_buildings. Changed the basic cost/hp/requirement stuff to fit more with the units (Wikibook's system in that was much nicer than mine anyway) and since I've finally found out how to link to sections of a page, did so ;). Started on the Terran buildings too, although I think that the descriptions are insufficient...I see if I can get to it once everything has been transferred.--RubyDragon 14:23, 21 January 2007 (CST)

ToDo function[edit]

I noticed that your todo list priority is undefined. To fix this(for a personal todo list), put |personal beside todo within the brackets. 0-172 17:40, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Yea, I haven't used them before either. Just realized about the priority template thing. For personal pages, todo should be {{todo priority|personal}}. -- Prod (Talk) 12:03, 20 January 2007 (CST)
Thanks :) It's been altered now.--RubyDragon 13:03, 20 January 2007 (CST)
