Should the logo on this be white like on the other wikis? --ToaMeiko (talk) 21:17, 16 October 2013 (EDT)

things I want to see on the main page[edit]

On wikia main page, the themes, community links like rfcm, rfa, rfp/c, blogs and list of users, new photo page and other useful links were all right there and accessible. Here, hardly any of those links are present and navigation is a pain. Please bring these back, it would make the wiki much more appealing and easier to use for new people as well as editors. SuperSpyX (talk)

  • I've started working on a navigation box here (to use, you need to copy the code at User:NovaFlare/common.js to "User:<insert name here>/common.js". The thing is, I don't know what else to put in- anyone got any ideas? I'd like to add in "contact" and "parents" bricks to the community section, other than that I don't really know what tabs we should have (maybe a reviews tab? But I think we need more than just that). And as many of our theme pages are broken, I don't know if even having a themes tab is a good idea.... NovaHawk 04:30, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
    • Since there's been no response, I've gone and added it in, let me know what you think. I've also cleaned up the theme pages which weren't working, replacing the tables with lists (not ideal, but at least they work now) NovaHawk 12:51, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
      • I don't really like anything that shows/hides on hover. This has killed our main page's mobile support as well. --ToaMeiko (talk) 19:58, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Featured custom template[edit]

The featured custom template doesn't seem to be working... --LK901 17:36, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Because nobody made one for this month. --ToaMeiko (talk) 18:08, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Maybe we should replace it with something else then? Also the news section isn't updating.... --LK901 20:42, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Also, when O'm not logged in the last two or three news blogs don't appear in the list. Not sure if it is only me, or if it applies to all guests... --LK901 10:14, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Navigation[edit]

Could we move the popup-bar-word-things under the Navigation" heading into the middle of the box, and possibly give them some icons? It would look quite a bit better. -Cligra

Founded in 2006[edit]

Should we, after the part where we say when Brickipedia was founded, have a little note saying how the site moved to Brickimedia on [whatever date]? Because I've seen several visitors over the course of time argue/point out "But this site [en.brickimedia.org] isn't that old", and it may be something worth clarifying. BrickfilmNut (talk) 18:18, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Would be a good idea. --LK901 13:50, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Monthly Mini Build[edit]

Just want to point out that the monthly mini build is set number 40103, not 40104. brickset.com/sets/40103-1/Rocket BrikkyyTalk

Fixed. --ToaMeiko (talk) 20:08, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

My (personal) issues with the main page design.[edit]

  1. The code transcludes several pages in the userspace. This shouldn't happen.
  2. The New Files isn't dynamic - so why the hell is it featuring such uninspiring images.
  3. What is the point of new files? If its not automatic, then why not say what they are?
  4. The gallery doesn't work well visually. Gallery makes the images boxes inside boxes inside a box.
  5. Why have a featured story AND NOT EXPLAIN A SUMMARY OF THE STORY
  6. The image on the Featured Review is bad.
  7. The featured art doesn't link to the fan page for it.
  8. The featured art is larger than any other image by a confusingly large amount.
  9. Recent upload box is a lot thinner than recent good article box. Looks silly.
  10. Good articles box has ridiculous amount of empty space.
  11. Story box has ridiculous amount of empty space.
  12. Image should probably be centred or larger for featured custom so you can actually see it
  13. Featured art has too much white space on the right hand side
  14. Featured art box much bigger than featured review
  15. Friends box looks silly where it is. If you have a box that long, just make it the full page width and be done with it.

User pages moved to templates. On Main Page/new, I can't seem to figure out how to change the box size. LegoFan4000 talk 21:15, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
When I made a rough draft of an updated main page I didn't think it be published in that state. Surly the new files should actually feature new files? :P I agree with your complaints but I guess our content isn't as hidden now. Soupperson1 Friends are Forever! <3Friends girls.jpg
  • Only two have been addressed, and the mainpage looks a mess, so I've reverted to the old one, with a few technical issues (social-icons, gradients) updated. No one on chat disagreed, so if someone wants to add all those boxes back, they should probably address some of the issues.

So, while the css now looks nicer, is it me or are we lacking the images? :P CJC95 (talk) 09:19, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

The images were gone. LegoFan4000 talk 11:14, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
Sorry about that, imported the FontAwesome CDN across all wikis via meta:Special:Diff/220978 at meta:MediaWiki:Global.css (turns out it wasn't imported before), it should work now. SamanthaNguyen (talk) 20:55, 5 August 2016 (UTC) Edit: One more thing, cache is slow so please wait for a little bit, thansk!
So that's what the problem was :P I'm seeing the images now, but that's all they are- images. There aren't any links on any of them. NovaHawk 08:00, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
Same here, no links. LegoFan4000 talk 21:31, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Links are back now. Seems that when Samantha converted the icons to use FontAwesome, the actual links went missing. All's well now — thanks for spotting the bug and reporting it! --Jack Phoenix (talk) 21:51, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank You, Jack. LegoFan4000 talk 21:58, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
