  • [12:29:42] <PanSola> or guitarheros.wikia.com
  • [12:30:08] <PanSola> Image:Icon-new-48x48.png WoWWiki does not have a WoWWiki page with this exact name!

  • [12:31:34] <DuTempete> PanSola, we do not
  • [12:31:35] <PanSola> Playsonic2: from your perspective you might want to ensure all English wiki articles link to your spanish wiki, to increase the exposure (-:

  • [12:35:03] <JoePlay> err.. what Pan said
  • [12:35:37] <PanSola> Richard1990: introduce yourself. What wiki you are from etc
  • [12:35:40] <PanSola> (-:
  • [12:36:22] <DuTempete> Basically, what we've done for the projects is create this portal, and announce it at the village pump. We decided on some basic organisation methods as you see there, such as a central page for the project, and use of the project tag
  • [12:36:48] <DuTempete> I'm in the process of tagging about 700-800 articles for my project. :P
  • [12:36:54] <PanSola> hehe
  • [12:36:55] <Richard1990> oh sorry
  • [12:37:28] <PanSola> GuildWiki also has projects, and we make a linkon the sidebar
  • [12:37:41] <JoePlay> i guess i should intro myself too since i don't come to the sunday chats much
  • [12:37:44] <JoePlay> me -> http://www.wikia.com/wiki/User:JoePlay
  • [12:37:46] <PanSola> http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/GuildWiki:Projects
  • [12:37:56] <PanSola> though ours is not very organized
  • [12:38:04] <DuTempete> I keep calling it "my" project, since that's how it started out. I just made a subpage of my user page so that I could keep track of what I wanted to do.
  • [12:38:13] * Quits: anc96

  • [12:38:54] <Richard1990> or used to
  • [12:39:01] <JoePlay> heh
  • [12:39:08] <DuTempete> Yeah, we're putting the tags on the talk page. Do you have any thoughts of whether it would be better there, or on the main article? I think the main concern with it being on the main article is it taking up so much space: http://www.wowwiki.com/Template:Warlock_project
  • [12:39:13] * Skizzerz is now known as MediaWiki
  • [12:39:45] <PanSola> DuTempete: wikipedia does it on the talk page, adn I think in this case their practice makes sense
  • [12:40:04] <PanSola> don't want to clutter up the main article
  • [12:40:09] <DuTempete> right

  • [12:41:20] <PanSola> hi tesfan
  • [12:41:26] <Jack_Phoenix> gateway fails, no kidding
  • [12:41:33] <Jack_Phoenix> real clients are far more superior
  • [12:41:34] <DuTempete> I'd like to also have some type of advert about the project on the main page... mebbe an icon at the top?
  • [12:41:34] <Playsonic2> hi Tesfan
  • [12:41:42] <PanSola> DuTempete: do you want to write an OpEd about the concept of community projects? (-:
  • [12:41:46] <Charitwo> reverend phoenix
  • [12:41:49] <PanSola> yeah that'd be cool
  • [12:41:54] <Dashiva> Is there a standard template for marking a wiki as orphaned?

  • [12:42:52] <Tesfan> Hi
  • [12:43:24] <Dashiva> I'm going over the non-English TR wikis, and they all look stillborn or abandoned
  • [12:43:24] <JoePlay> good place to put a message for people to see, especially if you're wanting to draw attention to a particular wiki
  • [12:43:41] <Razorflame> Dashiva: TR?
  • [12:43:55] <PanSola> Tabula Rasa
  • [12:44:12] <PanSola> Richard "Lord British" Garriot's MMORPG
  • [12:44:27] <PanSola> though now he's been demoted to General d-:
  • [12:44:28] <Dashiva> Some of them don't have a single entry in Listusers, even
  • [12:44:57] <PanSola> Dashiva: yeah IIRC a lot of the TR forign-language wikis were just created out of a partnership with another site
  • [12:45:01] <DuTempete> Well, PanSola, I suppose I could, but I don't consider myself an expert...
  • [12:45:02] <PanSola> and does't have a real founder or user
  • [12:45:19] <DuTempete> and holy FSM... TR is Lord British's game?
  • [12:45:27] <PanSola> DuTempete: not an expert on the subject of community projects?
  • [12:45:28] <DuTempete> I didn't know that :P
  • [12:45:34] <DuTempete> aye, PanSola
  • [12:45:38] <PanSola> DuTempete: did you know LB's real life name?
  • [12:45:55] <DuTempete> I'm sure I've heard it, but I don't identify him as such.
  • [12:45:59] <PanSola> TR has been marketed as "Richard Garriet's Tabula Rasa" for a while now
  • [12:46:19] <Razorflame> PanSola: When something says Public domain, that means it's alright to use, right?
  • [12:46:22] <PanSola> the developer is called "Destination Games", an obvious contrast to "Origin"
  • [12:46:29] <PanSola> Razorflame: yes
  • [12:46:31] <DuTempete> lol
  • [12:46:34] <DuTempete> that's amusing
  • [12:46:39] <PanSola> yeah (-:
  • [12:46:40] <DuTempete> the things you don't notice :P
  • [12:46:43] <Razorflame> PanSola:It's alright to use on a wikia then?
  • [12:46:47] <Richard1990> yeah
  • [12:46:50] <Razorflame> kk
  • [12:46:55] <Richard1990> anything free can be used on wikia
  • [12:47:07] <Richard1990> gfdl, glpl, cc, etc.
  • [12:47:15] <PanSola> Razorflame: in general yes. if you want to be careful, yu might want to double check to see if it is really PD
  • [12:47:26] <PanSola> sometimes some stuff are "claimed" to be PD, but aren't realy
  • [12:47:26] <Razorflame> It says so
  • [12:47:33] * MediaWiki is now known as Skizzerz
  • [12:47:38] <PanSola> hehe
  • [12:47:38] <Razorflame> PanSola: It's from the Library of Congress
  • [12:47:43] <PanSola> ah then yeah
  • [12:47:55] * PanSola thinks we also need a Library of Progress
  • [12:48:01] <Razorflame> lol
  • [12:48:14] <DuTempete> So, does anyone have any input about community projects?
  • [12:48:19] <PanSola> DuTempete: so you thinkyou might be interestedin Tabula Rasa?
  • [12:48:27] <PanSola> DuTempete: not sure what kind of input you are seeking
  • [12:48:32] <PanSola> aside where to put tags
  • [12:48:33] <DuTempete> mebbe, but I doubt I'd have the time.
  • [12:48:41] <PanSola> hehe
  • [12:48:48] <DuTempete> Things that have worked for other people.
  • [12:48:58] <PanSola> we put a link on our sidebar
  • [12:49:01] <PanSola> to the projects
  • [12:49:06] <PanSola> trying to attract more ppl
  • [12:49:11] <PanSola> also linkit from community portal
  • [12:49:16] <DuTempete> I really don't like WoW that much (mostly hate Blizzard), but I still play because of my friends.
  • [12:49:30] <PanSola> DuTempete: wash their brains
  • [12:49:40] <PanSola> and get them to play other games with you (-:
  • [12:49:42] <Dashiva> I'd recommend hashing out the basic details of the project with a tiny group of core members, then try to draw people in to get things moving
  • [12:49:44] <DuTempete> Oh, that thing I was looking for... I didn't find it, but maybe I can describe it.
  • [12:50:02] <Dashiva> Design-by-200-people-trying-to-bike-shed never works
  • [12:50:39] <Razorflame> Is anyone here even remotely interested in the board game of Go?
  • [12:50:41] <DuTempete> It's a small table that showed above the ToC/navboxes, appended to the end of the main headline
  • [12:50:55] <DuTempete> mebbe 50x150
  • [12:50:57] <PanSola> Razorflame: I am intersted in helping the Go Wiki itself, but unfortunately I don't play the game )-:
  • [12:51:16] <DuTempete> Being able to add something like that would be fantastic, I think.
  • [12:51:23] <Razorflame> PanSola: I could still use some fleshing out of ideas and stuff like that
  • [12:51:39] <PanSola> Razorflame: one thing I would suggest is seek out other boradgame wikis, and make a partnership with them
  • [12:51:45] <Dashiva> Razorflame: Won't calling it that push away the hardcore fans who refuse to use the false name? ;)
  • [12:52:23] <Razorflame> Dashiva:I prefer to call it the go wiki because it is simple and easy to remember
  • [12:52:35] <Razorflame> PanSola:All right. I'll look around
  • [12:53:10] <PanSola> what's the hardcore name for it? o_O
  • [12:53:22] <Razorflame> Weiqui
  • [12:53:25] <Razorflame> or...
  • [12:53:32] <Razorflame> (that's chinese)
  • [12:53:38] <Razorflame> Baduk (Korean)
  • [12:53:48] <Razorflame> other than that...I dunno
  • [12:54:03] <PanSola> eh, so basically hardcore gamers don't like the Japanese name?
  • [12:54:10] <Razorflame> PanSola:Should I add a link to my wiki under Highlighted wikis?
  • [12:54:21] <Razorflame> Under the section Helping out
  • [12:54:29] <PanSola> Razorflame: go ahead (-:
  • [12:55:02] <PanSola> I'll be updating the New wikis later today or early tomorrow and that'll include the Go Wiki too, but that's something independent
  • [12:55:57] <DuTempete> I'm not sure where to start coding for a small infobox that shows up next to the article headline...
  • [12:56:07] <PanSola> DuTempete: doesn't matter where
  • [12:56:23] <DuTempete> well, I can design it easy
  • [12:56:36] <DuTempete> hrmm... I suppose I could float it there...
  • [12:56:37] <PanSola> it uses css positioning to get up there
  • [12:56:42] <DuTempete> yeah
  • [12:56:57] <PanSola> (though wiht quartz skin tings might look weird because of teh way the margins were hacked)
  • [12:57:26] <DuTempete> what type of positioning should I use so that it's in the same place for each skin?
  • [12:57:47] <Razorflame> PanSola:I added it now
  • [12:58:04] * Joins: Simon_rjh
  • [12:58:05] <PanSola> Razorflame: you might want to hang out on #wikia, and see if a staff by the name of Yukichi (or yukichi99) shows up, and ask him if he can help advertise your wiki to Japanese users
  • [12:58:09] <DuTempete> relative?
  • [12:58:25] <PanSola> Razorflame: you can add a link to your wiki now under highlighted
  • [12:58:37] <PanSola> I'm saying I'm goind to do something additional, later
  • [12:58:43] <PanSola> wb simon
  • [12:58:46] <Razorflame> PanSola:That's exactly what I did
  • [12:58:51] <DuTempete> but that wouldn't be right, either... content widths are different between monobook and quartz
  • [12:58:51] <Razorflame> just now
  • [12:58:55] <PanSola> Razorflame: cool (-:
  • [12:59:03] <Razorflame> PanSola:Does Yukichi speak English?
  • [12:59:08] <PanSola> Razorflame: yes
  • [12:59:26] * Joins: Camicio
  • [12:59:38] <PanSola> try to market it in such a way as "Japanes users can practice their English while sharing their knowledge"
  • [12:59:39] <PanSola> d-:
  • [12:59:42] <Razorflame> rar Camicio
  • [12:59:49] <PanSola> see if he'd be interested in helping
  • [13:00:01] <PanSola> since Go is a bigger deal in Japan/Asia than the wester world
  • [13:00:53] <Razorflame> yes
  • [13:01:14] <Razorflame> I added a bit of information to the end of it that basically says what you just said
  • [13:01:18] <PanSola> or maybe a sister Japanese Go Wiki would be setup
  • [13:01:31] <Razorflame> only I added Korean and Chinese to the list
  • [13:01:35] <PanSola> (-:
  • [13:02:51] <PanSola> DuTempete: use position:absolute, then set its position relative to the left side
  • [13:03:17] <Richard1990> oh hey i just realized i'm not listed as a helper :O
  • [13:03:31] <PanSola> Richard1990: go bite someone higherup d-:
  • [13:04:03] <PanSola> DuTempete: or edit MW:Common.css, and define different CSS ruels depending on the skin
  • [13:04:07] <DuTempete> well, I'll play with it, and show you what I've got, how does that sound, PanSola?
  • [13:04:17] <PanSola> sounds great (-:
  • [13:04:19] <DuTempete> true, I could create a new class for it.
  • [13:04:21] * Quits: Richard1990

  • [13:06:02] <Richard1990> yeah i noticed it reached 8,000 articles recently that's pretty good
  • [13:06:18] <PanSola> Camicio what is your question?
  • [13:06:32] <Camicio> how do i answer it?
  • [13:06:40] <PanSola> where is the question?
  • [13:06:54] <Camicio> in irc
  • [13:07:19] <PanSola> if there is a question on IRC, you can just answer it on IRC
  • [13:07:22] <Razorflame> PanSola:The other board game wikis are either dead or have no admins
  • [13:07:31] <PanSola> Razorflame: piyt
  • [13:07:38] <Razorflame> PanSola:What?
  • [13:07:42] <PanSola> well you can still link to them, either causing them to revive
  • [13:07:48] <PanSola> I meant to say "pity"
  • [13:07:51] <Camicio> ok, thank you
  • [13:07:52] <Razorflame> oh lol
  • [13:08:10] <PanSola> Razorflame: and you can go therem and have them link to you (since they don't have a community to object)
  • [13:08:23] <PanSola> soif they ever revive, or anyone just randomly run into them
  • [13:08:28] <PanSola> htey see a link to your wiki
  • [13:08:31] <PanSola> speaking of which
  • [13:08:33] <Camicio> what is a holy paladin supposed to have with him when grouping?
  • [13:08:52] <PanSola> Camicio: what game is this question about?
  • [13:09:06] <Camicio> ah this isn't about wow?
  • [13:09:08] <PanSola> Camicio: this is a general gaming channel, so not everyone necessarily knows about your game
  • [13:09:17] <Camicio> ah, ok
  • [13:09:18] <PanSola> DuTempete: you can help Camicio (-:
  • [13:09:20] <Camicio> it's wow by the way
  • [13:09:32] <PanSola> I think DuTempete is our local WoW expert (-:
  • [13:09:35] <DuTempete> ah, Camicia :)
  • [13:09:39] <DuTempete> err Camicio
  • [13:09:44] <DuTempete> yes, I suppose that would be me :P
  • [13:09:54] <PanSola> Razorflame: can you help keep a list of all board-game wikis on wikia?
  • [13:10:10] <DuTempete> good, I see you're in #wowwiki Camicio :)
  • [13:11:59] <Razorflame> PanSola:On my wiki?
  • [13:12:08] <Razorflame> on the Go Wiki?

  • [13:12:27] <PanSola> Razorflame: on central
  • [13:12:39] <DuTempete> So, PanSola, I'll work on that OpEd? Actually, let me get a reference point via the other articles before I commit to that, so I can be sure I'm up to it. :P
  • [13:12:44] <Razorflame> Where?
  • [13:12:52] <PanSola> DuTempete: sure (-:
  • [13:13:13] <PanSola> Razorflame: maybe create a new template called Template:Boardgame Wikis
  • [13:13:30] <PanSola> and you can format it similar to Template:Star Wars Wikis
  • [13:13:44] <PanSola> if you are interested in doing this project that is (-:
  • [13:14:12] <PanSola> oops I mean Template:Star Wars wikis
