==Maintenance==
 
The link "7. Fix up the pages listed for maintenance." goes to a special page that doesn't exist. (Special:Maintenance) I don't have the foggiest how to fix that, heh. -- [[User:TheMaster42|TheMaster42]] 02:36, 7 May 2006 (EDT)
 
 
==Pages with Self Links==
 
I noticed that many of these do not really have self links in there. Examples are [[World of Warcraft]] and [[Quests]]. They do have links to other articles or wikipedia links with the title word(s) in them but are completely different. Maybe the Special Page is picking up on that and not that it is the exact same page.

==Nice, but...==
 
Crazy! I kind of like it. Although the colors are a bit overkill... ;-) -[[User:Fandyllic|- Fandyllic]]
 
 
:I love the colors - took me all of an hour to get the perfect color combinations to create a contiguous look... rofl
 
::{{Usertemp:SilverSide}} - 18:10, 1 Dec 2005 (EST)~
 
 
 
==Status?==
 
You seem to have created a tremendous amount of work. You should put your status here (like what you're gonna fixed next). It would be nice if the table of contents worked... -[[User:Fandyllic|- Fandyllic]]
 
 
:The TOC does work rofl - the To_do item apparently doesn't' work, but that's only cause you are technically already at the To_do section lol
 
:As for everything else, I have a team set up to fix this whole place up - I want everything here spic and span when I finish. Right now that team consists of me, myself, and I - if you wanna help out, just lemme a note somewheres I'll notice it (-:
 
::{{Usertemp:SilverSide}} - 18:10, 1 Dec 2005 (EST)~
 
 
:: In any case, the Contents seems like it should be floated to the right, and I looked at the code to see what I could do, but I don't really see where it is! I'll look again. [[User:D. F. Schmidt|Schmidt]] 03:36, 1 Jan 2006 (EST)
 
 
:::It is floated right... wtf? -- [[User:SilverSide|&nbsp;]]<sub>[[User:SilverSide|&#8465;ilver]]</sub>[[User:SilverSide|&#167;]]<sup>[[User talk:SilverSide|&#8465;ide</sup>]] 03:45, 1 Jan 2006 (EST)
 
 
== Looks nice ==
 
 
I'm liking the layout and organization...
 
 
... thats a lot of red links though.

:Read here: [[User talk:AlexanderYoshi]]
 
::[[User:SilverSide|[[User:SilverSide|&nbsp;]]<sup>[[User:SilverSide|Silver]]</sup>[[User:SilverSide|\]]<sub>[[User talk:SilverSide|Side]]</sub>]] 17:35, 3 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
 
The [[WoWWiki:Signpost]] appears to be empty? Unless there is more to it than I know, I suggest its link is removed from the introductory paragraphs. --[[User:Hammersmith|Hammersmith]] Dec 27 05 Aust
 
:I would do this myself but I cannot work out how to edit the template that the page refers to. Could someone give me a link to the template page for "[[WoWWiki:Community Portal/Banner]]"? -- [[User:Hammersmith|Hammersmith]] 17:13, 30 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
:: I'm not sure what you're asking, Hammersmith, especially on the Signpost article. That article is a stub, we don't know what it's for, and it hasn't been edited since its creation. As far as you doing this yourself, what would you do? I guess you mean you don't know where the page even appears. Check [[Special:Whatlinkshere/WoWWiki:Signpost]] for that. As for the "template page", I don't see what you could mean there at all. In any case, that used to be a banner but was commented out. As for that, what's the use in having such a page (especially so named!) if it's not going to have anything displayed? [[User:D. F. Schmidt|Schmidt]] 17:44, 30 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
 
:::The signpost, I will get to later. Mark it terminate if you wish, I'll create it when I get around to it. About the template thing, the banner is there so that an important message can me displayed quickly, without creating a bunch of tablestructure and stuff, just edit [[WoWWiki:Community Portal/Banner]] and it appears... -- [[User:SilverSide|&nbsp;]]<sub>[[User:SilverSide|&#8465;ilver]]</sub>[[User:SilverSide|&#167;]]<sup>[[User talk:SilverSide|&#8465;ide</sup>]] 19:55, 30 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
:OK thanks everyone. Sorry my question was not clear, Schmidt. Also that 'linked here' page is handy! I've removed ''<nowiki>For community news, you can read, and write for, the ''[[WoWWiki:Signpost|WoWWiki Signpost]]'' or see what's [[WoWWiki:Goings-on|going on]]. </nowiki>'' from the front page. It can be re-established when there is content for it. -- [[User:Hammersmith|Hammersmith]] 20:25, 30 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
 
== Peer review/ Request for comment ==
 
 
How do we need to go about adding items we are working on for this? An example is the current rework of the Warlock's Talents and my work on the Hunter Pet Abilities?
 
--[[User:Dracomage|Dracomage]] 16:16, 7 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
:Although I see you figured it out, I will state it here for future users: just click 'Request for comment' under 'To Do' and add an item on that page!
 
::[[User:SilverSide|&nbsp;]]<sub>[[User:SilverSide|&#8465;ilver]]</sub>[[User:SilverSide|&#167;]]<sup>[[User talk:SilverSide|&#8465;ide</sup>]] 16:45, 7 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
 
 
== Adding data to stubs ==
 
 
Can you add "Adding data to stubs" under the To Do box? And then link it to the stubs section? --[[User:Dracomage|Dracomage]] 12:51, 8 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
:Hmm yes, but there also needs to be a sepcific article about expaning stubs... i dunno, w/e for now that works. -- [[User:SilverSide|&nbsp;]]<sub>[[User:SilverSide|&#8465;ilver]]</sub>[[User:SilverSide|&#167;]]<sup>[[User talk:SilverSide|&#8465;ide</sup>]] 01:10, 9 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
 
== Orphanage ==
 
 
I'm hoping someone could explain, what is a wiki orphaned page? What does it mean? What is the significance of adopting one? -- [[User:Hammersmith|Hammersmith]] 00:44, 29 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
 
: LOL. I'm quite certain it means the page has no other pages linking to it. Sadly, this even includes pages that are in a category. But sometimes there is simply no need for a link to a given page, and it can just fit in a category. So it could be good to go through that list of orphaned pages, but I wouldn't put any special emphasis on it. [[User:D. F. Schmidt|Schmidt]] 10:20, 29 Dec 2005 (EST)
 
 
== Pages and policies still to be written - no longer linked ==
 
 
[[User:Hammersmith|Hammersmith]] 07:02, 31 Dec 2005 (EST):
 
* To tidy up the Community Portal, I have commented out links to pages which are unwritten. I did this because such a high profile page such as the Community Portal should not send browsers off to empty pages; this leads to confusion (as it did with me) which is resolved only by unecessarily trying to read through most of the talk page. Also, I suspect that rather than write new policy and procedure pages we might actually have some existing content that could be linked to instead (someone just needs to do that). I don't think such an important page should be awash with red links, making it look like unfinished business, because that reduces the credibility of the page.
 
 
* Because I have commented-out (rather than deleted) the links, if you want to add content (or alternatively, find existing content which should be linked to), you can easily find a range of ideas hidden in there.
 
 
== Featured content ==
 
How about assembling some good lore articles and other stuff to be featured? I think lore might be the best category for a good featured article. Others might be special weapons like [[Lightforged Blade]] and [[Thunderfury]] (both of which could be cleaned up). I can't think of anything else that could be featured, right off, except maybe stuff like [[Undermine]], if anyone else thinks stuff like that (not necessarily Undermine) would be a good candidate. Obviously some articles that ''could'' be very good candidates aren't up to par, but that could be taken care of by me or my group, the [[WoWWiki:Commentators|Commentators]]. I guess another good candidate category would be [[Argent Dawn]], [[Steamwheedle Cartel]] and maybe role-play stories. Let me know what you guys think. [[User:D. F. Schmidt|Schmidt]] 07:24, 19 Jan 2006 (EST)
 
 
== CSS Skins ==
 
When we format banners and whatnot from now on, we need to be conscious that users can change the CSS skin that WoWWiki is displayed in. So if a banner has a dark background that is more fitting with white text, we need to explicitly say that the text is white. Being able to edit a common CSS file that includes
 
.banner { text: white; text-align: center; background: black; width: 100%; }
 
or that sort of thing might be nice. In any case, perhaps we could just do what we've been doing with {{tlink|tooltipcss}}. If someone could take note of this and if anyone actually prefers another stylesheet, by all means change stuff where it needs to be changed. After being used to this old stylesheet, I find it blinding to use Wikipedia's Monobook (which is default there). So is anyone going to use a different stylesheet? [[User:D. F. Schmidt|Schmidt]] 22:39, 13 March 2006 (EST)
