Talk:Main Page

Added Main Index.

There are a lot of Characters. Any suggestion on how to format the list a little more overseeable? Leath (talk)

- Feels like extensions for either hiding sections or creating tabs would be helpful with this, and also with hiding spoilers. Nyx (talk)

I'm looking into this, we should be able to have every stories characters list on a separate page, and then include them in the main one. Sarhatabaot (talk)

As I've mentioned on the main page, it would be best if the chinese characters and/or additional names are not added in the links themselves. If there's really a need to show them on the current page, put it like [[I Shall Seal The Heavens|I Shall Seal The Heavens (Chinese Characters here)]] --Appelemac (talk) 13:05, 30 November 2015 (EST)

I've been trying to get an answer from someone on whether it is alright to link to my wiki on TDG, but haven't gotten a response... So I am going to go ahead and play around with the TDG section. I am not trying to step on toes or get anyone angry. If It comes down from on high that they don't want links to another wiki then I understand and they can be removed. I have invested four months of my life into building it and I think I did a good job so there is no reason to start form scratch. Everyone here is more then welcome to use it as an example for ideas as well. It was made on Wikia, so there might be some differences, but it seems the basic code is the same. I think that I can make this wiki a general glossary with more indepth information linking back to mine. I am welcome to feedback and questions. --Sithkazar (talk)

Templates

I have added some templates. These are from my TDG wiki, but I have modified them as best as I could to work with other stories. I have also left notes to help you use them. You may use them as you wish.--Sithkazar (talk)

Nice man! I'll just add a quick spot in the guide of the main page on how to use 'em. --Appelemac (talk) 12:24, 3 December 2015 (EST)

No problem. I'm glad to help. :) If there are any requests or problems, be sure to tell me. --Sithkazar (talk)


Quick help

To add pages, go to existing ones, put the name of the new page between double brackets while editing, save, click on the red link.

Sample

[[ISSTH: Meng Hao|Meng Hao]] while editing -> save -> press link -> Meng Hao

--Appelemac (talk) 06:30, 30 November 2015 (EST)

The Prefix before the name is a good idea. However, I don't believe we can convert all the existing pages over to this format. It's simply too much work. Whoever keeps editing the page, I can't send you a pm, since you aren't signed up. I will keep reediting the page, so we won't get 2 different formats of naming. -- Sarhatabaot (talk) 10:24, 30 November 2015 (EST)

Proposal:

The prefixes to be: <the shorcut on wuxiaworld, capitalised>:<page itself>

If it's decided on, that should be added to the main page ASAP

--Appelemac (talk) 12:33, 30 November 2015 (EST)


I think we should add it for others since ISSTH went too far already. When it calms down I will try to change them. Freakingmagnet (talk) 12:52, 30 November 2015 (EST)

The renaming can be done enmasse with movepages extension but I'm not sure whether or not to mark the pages as Project as well --Appelemac (talk) 13:10, 30 November 2015 (EST)

Notice

I've just noticed this, but someone added some details to the Coiling Dragon header in the main index.

Those details should be added in the page itself, not the link to it, to uphold clarity.

This is just my opinion, so feel free to comment >.< --Appelemac (talk) 12:44, 30 November 2015 (EST)

I notice that Ultimate Vexation has been dublicated. It has Ultimate Vexation=correct one, and ultimate vexation/Meat jelly=dublicated. I guess this is the cause of someone not knowing how to use [[location| name to be displayed]] because they simply don't know of it. I think it should be showed in the help somewhere, but i'm not qualified to change help xD.--Crusadera (talk) 15:10, 4 December 2015 (EST)

Duplicate Pages

This is getting a mess. About halve the pages are existing under multiple names with different content (ex: Xiao Clan and ATG:Xiao Clan

How can we clean this up? --TheEditor (talk) 15:26, 01 Dezember 2015 (GTM+2)

There should be general conventions:
  • links to main sections consist of only the full name (not "I Shall Seal The Heavens (ISSTH)", just "I Shall Seal The Heavens")
  • links to sub-sections and pages start with the shorthand of the section, followed by their full name.
    • Not "Meng Hao", but "ISSTH:Meng Hao"
  • Possiby others?

--Appelemac (talk) 11:03, 1 December 2015 (EST)

Sorry for being a novice at this but how to either delete duplicate pages or set up re-directs to the correct page? --Deathblade (talk) 03:10, 8 December 2015 (EST)

Yes, to redirect a page "press on more> move" if the page already exists (target you're moving) go to your page; i.e. Meng Hao and add the line #REDIRECT [[ISSTH:Meng_Hao]] it would be great if editors looked before making a page though, much duplicates, many pages. -- Sarhatabaot (talk) 08:43, 8 December 2015 (EST)


LUA

Is LUA turned on on this Wiki? If not, people should not be copying LUA templates off Wikipedia, as they will not work. It'd be better to search through the old versions of templates in the page history to find the version prior to its conversion into using LUA modules. If it is turned on, then people copying LUA templates will also need to copy the LUA module out of Module-space (the name of the module is in the "#invoke:" statement) But if the people copying the module do not know LUA (it's a programming language) that's not a good idea. -- 70.51.44.60 07:43, 18 December 2015 (EST)

We should probably install Scribunto -- Sarhatabaot (talk) 06:59, 27 April 2016 (EDT)

Suggestions

Corrections

I was just thinking, wouldn't it be nice if there was a page where people can post corrections for typos they found in the novels? like ISSTH:Corrections. This would prevent the TLs from being spammed non-stop and keep the corrections organized. Additionally, other folks may edit those corrections or comment on whether they're correct or not --Appelemac (talk)

Wonderful idea, however MediaWiki has already solved this for us. Using the Discussion section, we can discuss various sections of the page.

-- Sarhatabaot (talk) 14:04, 1 December 2015 (EST)

Hmmm... I was thinking more of an organized page, as the Discussions tend to get cluttered, but I suppose a few edits on the Discussion pages of novels could do the magic. Only issue remaining would be spreading the word, especially to TLs --Appelemac (talk) 14:22, 1 December 2015 (EST) Would something like this work? Talk Page --Appelemac (talk) 14:49, 1 December 2015 (EST)


Timeline or Arcs added to General Novel Template

Some readers want to know what will happen because they like spoilers. Also, this helps readers remind themselves of past events, so instead of reading the chapter again, they can reference the wiki - Dou

~Source[1]

This can been done by creating a new template for timeline and arcs that can be added to novels. If anyone is able to do, then please do so. If not I will look into at a later date. --Tasear (talk) 13:48, 21 April 2016 (EDT)

Team Members

Should create a master list of all team members (teams,translator,editors, etc)
