Rights[edit]

  • Thanks :) Anything I can do on here? NovaHawk 20:31, 20 September 2013 (EDT)
    • Oh... that was stupid of me then :P NovaHawk 23:16, 20 September 2013 (EDT)
      • Nah, it's good. :P Good to see forums work at the very least. :P --ToaMeiko (talk) 00:41, 21 September 2013 (EDT)

Beta[edit]

  • Hey Meiko, I saw you said the site's now in beta- does that mean I'm meant to be doing something now? NovaHawk 04:17, 29 September 2013 (EDT)
    • Well, just use the site like you would normally. Feel free to import some pages if it helps recreate a testing environment. Find any bugs, and report them. Give any suggestions you have. You can get things ready for release too. --ToaMeiko (talk) 12:29, 6 October 2013 (EDT)

Re: SEO[edit]

  • Sounds like it could be useful, I think before the news articles were doing well in the last wiki when I was searching for news (I think 4th or 5th), but if we could boost that up a bit further it could help NovaHawk 20:04, 7 October 2013 (EDT)
    • I can't see it being too useful on customs, I'm not sure if the other wikis would have any use for it either. But I guess it wouldn't hurt to install it would it? NovaHawk 00:12, 8 October 2013 (EDT)
      • Sorry, talk page stalking because there's nothing else to do here. :P I think it'd be good to have it installed on all the projects, unless it would hurt something. I don't think Customs or Storieswould use it much, but CUUSOO might. Drew1200 (talk)
        • Correct me if I'm wrong, but Brickipedia (en) is the only wiki on the network that has news, right? --ToaMeiko (talk) 15:12, 8 October 2013 (EDT)
          • I think so at present. If the CUUSOO Wiki was looking for a Brickipedia News-type thing sometime in the future, I'd be happy to help set it up (if they needed any help that is) once it's remade on Bricki NovaHawk 01:10, 9 October 2013 (EDT)

StringFunctions[edit]

  • Could we possibly get this extension installed on here (and maybe Customs as well? I can't remember if I need it over there though). Thanks, NovaHawk 01:34, 9 October 2013 (EDT)
    • I'll get one of the others to do it; I won't have time to do it myself today. --ToaMeiko (talk) 06:35, 9 October 2013 (EDT)

Re: CM4S[edit]

  • Yep, I think having him on here might help get things going a bit more NovaHawk 19:36, 14 October 2013 (EDT)

Re: Logos[edit]

  • Ok, thanks :) In that case, you wouldn't happen to have the old wordmarks for Reviews would you? Also, do you remember if we ended up having one for news? And if you could possibly upload the old customs and Bricki logos (the ones with the bricks over the wordmark) so that all the non-Refreshed skins don't have a big awkward gap in the top-left corner, that'd be much appreciated too NovaHawk 19:04, 17 October 2013 (EDT)
    • The latter of those requests is already on my to do list at m:To Do. --ToaMeiko (talk) 19:58, 17 October 2013 (EDT)

Hey[edit]

Can I have my Chatmod and patroller rights on here? (Patroller and Rollback are one right on here, correct?) -LFY1547

  • Not right now because they are glitched. And yes. --ToaMeiko (talk) 16:54, 1 November 2013 (EDT)

Re: News idea[edit]

  • Hmm, I think it should be more about the news than the author, but that's probably just me, as long as it isn't intrusive I can't see it being a problem. We could maybe make it optional for each reporter if they want to have a thing somewhere on the page- it wouldn't be too hard to work up a template for it if that's what the community wants NovaHawk 18:36, 1 November 2013 (EDT)
    • I think if it's subtle like the examples I listed, then it'd be fine. Back when Bricki had news bloggers, it'd have been there because it was blog posts, so I don't see it being a problem. --ToaMeiko (talk) 18:42, 1 November 2013 (EDT)
      • I'll get working on a template when I get the time (which probably won't be for a day or so :S) NovaHawk 20:06, 1 November 2013 (EDT)
        • I can handle it, don't worry. --ToaMeiko (talk) 20:41, 1 November 2013 (EDT)

News template 2.0[edit]

  • Hi Meiko, I think I've pretty much rebuilt the news template, see Template:NewsBy (and the talk page for examples). However I think you had it formatted much better, I can't remember how you positioned the avatar and everything. Also, I think for the updated field, you were using updated=REVISIONSTAMP, I can't remember how you actually did that, so I've just got it at the moment so that if the field isn't null, it outputs the "last edited REVISIONMONTH DAY, YEAR", but you can go ahead and change it if you want to NovaHawk 23:21, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
    • I'll do that in a bit. :) --ToaMeiko (talk) 23:55, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

News reporter update[edit]

  • Hopefully, when you go to Brickipedia_News:Home, you should now see a box to create new reports, which will only appear for news reporters. So to make a new report, just type in the name of the article and all the stuff is preloaded into it (meaning you don't have to do all that copy-paste work anymore). (Also, in case you don't know, there's an active member request here) NovaHawk 23:43, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
    • Alright, thanks. :) --ToaMeiko (talk) 02:24, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

don't feed the RDF: it's against the law! :P[edit]
