Quote Page[edit]

I understand your concerns, but please try to find other methods of resolving conflict than appealing to authority. I know it's easier, and I'm sure you're frustrated about the current state of the quote page, but I'd rather not have to execute summary judgement on the quote page, which is now harder for me to avoid since I'm now involved. --Briess 16:56, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
Its mostly that at this point I might as well not even add anything to the quote page, because i know its going to get deleted by Karl solely because I added it. So even if i tried to satisfy Corona (whose main complaint was those who delete quotes don't add anything) I can't do so because someone has decided that they have an axe to grind. This is a rather odious atmosphere to try to improve that page under. --Squirrelloid 16:59, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
Understood. --Briess 17:12, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Broken Links[edit]

The 23a namespace is an effort (in progress) to restore the 2D wiki. Don't worry about those broken links unless you want to spend time with archive.org. Your guess is as good as mine as to 40d:Menu, I can't find anything anywhere in any log about what Menu used to redirect to. I'll dig in the database though, and see if I can't figure something out. Thanks for your efforts! --Briess 17:02, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Deletion Template[edit]

Could you explain the reason for the deletion template that you put on this? I think I /might/ know why you tagged it, but I just want to confirm! Thanks. Emi [T] 02:51, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Okay, basically what I thought. Might I suggest using {{del|reason}} in the future though, because that's what I'm expecting to see. Emi [T] 06:09, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Re:Version Issue: Lists, Templates, etc...[edit]

Posting this here to (hopefully) answer a few things and not clutter up Albedo's talk page any further.

The big deal from above is *categories*. We should really have distinct categories between the namespaces because someone clicking a category link probably wants pages for the namespace he's in.

This is something that I'm going to try to work on. The only good solution that I can think of is to split the categories using the [[category:{{NAMESPACE}}:blah]] format that I mentioned before. As a result of researching this, I have also found out how to correct the sorting issue. See category:creatures for a partially completed example. Hopefully my tinkering in this area doesn't step on any toes, but I really think that the end result will be satisfactory.

 I suppose the second remaining issue is if anyone knows how the 'uses' links are being generated, but that's a lot more minor and doesn't involve and structural editing (i hope!)

If you see any of these links that are incorrect, they are built into the page (they are passed as arguments into the template itself). Any links that are built-in to the template should be corrected at this point (I think). Please let me know if you have any specific examples that you are concerned about! --Soy 20:08, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Image Size Issues[edit]

Me. Can you tell me what browser you're using? what image? (upload it to an image hosting site in the meantime so I can run some analysis, please). Also, could you attempt again and note the time and your time zone (so I can look this up in the logs). Thanks, --Briess 18:44, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
