I'm not sure what you were trying to do, but no audio or video got uploaded. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7 Oct 2013 12:49 PM Pacific

Videos Edit

Hello Thazrill and welcome onboard. A few things about the videos, please try and make your videos 335px, it seems to be the standard for now, and after all the videos in an article please use { { Clr } } no spaces, leaving a bunch of empty lines in the page is generally bad practice. Other than that good job. Tankingmage (talk) 23:19, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

Formatting videos Edit

Hello Thazzrill. I noticed you've been adding videos to pages, which is great, but we'd like to make adding them easier and more standardized. I will be telling Tankingmage this also, since this is somewhat new and we didn't really have a guideline before. I'm recommending a size of 400px (width) rather than 335px as Tankingmage mentioned above.

Here's example wikicode:

== Media ==
=== Videos ===
<gallery widths=380px>
File:videoname1|description1
File:videoname2|description2
</gallery>

Here's how it looks on the Ner'zhul page:

== Media ==
=== Videos ===
<gallery widths=380px>
File:WoW Pro Lore Episode 22 The Birth of the Lich King-0|Tankingmage's video narration with machinima
File:WoW Lore lesson Ner'Zhul|Ner'Zhul lore lesson
</gallery>

Okay, I updated the manual of style and changed the recommended width to 380px since 400px seemed to make stuff wrap to the next row. See WoWWiki:Manual_of_Style#Videos. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 8 Oct 2013 7:52 AM Pacific

Video formats continued Edit

As well as using the formats Fandyllic specified above please remember to use the double brace brackets {clr} template I mentioned above, as using lots of blank lines is messy, and it saves someone having to tidy up the edit. Thanks Tankingmage (talk) 19:47, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

Alright.

Videos and WoWWiki Policy Edit

I'm not sure if is that no one has noticed before, but the preponderance of videos you are offering for embedding appear to be primarily vehicles for WoW gold, which violates both WoW/Blizzard TOS and WoWWiki policy. I am going to start removing videos which are promoting gold or directly link to sites that offer gold. Please respond here. Celess (talk) 09:12, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

That makes no sense i never do such things, Thazzrill.
Ok, I stopped and looked. The videos advertise 'g2a.c o m' which has a 'G 2 A Goldmine' site which I thought looked like a gold site. It doesn't look like it is, but instead is a cash for multi-level marketing thing. g2a sells 'cd keys or codes' for games. I will un-delete the video, and my apologies. However if you could remove the marketing and ads from the WoWWiki descriptions, it would be appreciated. Celess (talk) 09:38, November 10, 2013 (UTC)
Ok thanks, i will remove them it just copied from my youtube channel.
Looks like the video and changes are already back. :) If there is anything that's not working still, let me know. For the record, I looked at the history and wouldn't think you would have been doing on purpose. Winky If you need anything else let me know also. Celess (talk) 09:50, November 10, 2013 (UTC)


Formatting videos Edit

Please follow the style guideline above as pepper articles with videos. If you find a section already exists with Images, you need to place beneath existing section, and all under a media heading if non exists. Should be placed inside a media tag. I know the instructions changed above once, and with the <gallery> tag you no longer need the {{clr}} template at the bottom. Also, needs to be no solicitation on public wiki or file page, other than maybe user pages. Celess (talk) 19:09, November 24, 2013 (UTC)

Such that:

== Gallery ==
<gallery>
images
</gallery>

becomes:

== Media ==
=== Images ==
<gallery>
images
</gallery>
=== Videos ===
<gallery widths="335" spacing="small">
WoW Lore lesson Ner'Zhul|Ner'Zhul lore lesson
</gallery>
