MTGS Wiki, MTGS IRC, and Dark skin returns!

  • #26
    The radar and spoiler are very hard to read without highlighting the text using the dark skin.
    Other than that and the defult yellowish color of text, it looks great.

    Im not informed on editing Wiki, and making pages, but I've just added a note at the bottom of the BL and gruul pages about the merger, sorry if I'm supposed to contanct someone before that... so if one more well versed in Wiki coul make the [Zoo] page, I;d be more than happy to type it.

    Thanx, from the Zoo.

    Under the licenses of the Wiki and Wikipedia, you cannot simply copy Wikipedia articles over to the Wiki (the GFDL, in fact, is designed specifically to prevent that).

    Sing lustily and with good courage.
    Be aware of singing as if you were half dead,
    or half asleep:
    but lift your voice with strength.
    Be no more afraid of your voice now,
    nor more ashamed of its being heard,
    than when you sang the songs of Satan.
    Love

    I've been lurking waay to much here, so I might as well begin posting now. Smile

    The Wiki is great, and I'm well underway to undermining its credibility with my ineptitude (e.g. I'm posting a lot in there.)

    I was wondering, is it possible to be able to show the mana symbolsWURBG and so on, in the wiki? Or would there be a copyright problem? What about pictures of actual cards?

    Cheers, and good job all you wiki'ists out there.:)

    Give me suggestions for the dark skin.

    I'll try to fix the spoiler and radar.

    On the subject of which, this seems to have happened already with the pro player biographies. I don't want to just delete the pages myself, but some mod-type-person might want to look into it.

    Edit: SorryGuy, did you put that stuff up ?

    Will we ever get any other skins? Like green skins and stuff like that? Or maybe skins with textures? Smile

    57 people use the Light style, 12 use the Dark one.

    I just don't think anybody would ever use em. (We have nearly 11000 users.)

    Horray for the dark skin, I missed you so very much. Wiki is just great, will go see it right now.

    I love the IRC chatroom.... thank you for putting it into the tabs at the top.

    What exactly does this site have to do with Wikipedia? I first assumed it was a big "main page article" for Wikipedia, but that seems to be wrong (searching the 'pedia returns nothing). On the other hand, the page setup is exactly the same, and the help page even links to Wikipedia.

    Also, If one can't reach it from wikipedia, where exactly is one supposed to reach it from? It seems to me like an entire second site, but with the exact same resources this site already has. I'm clearly missing the point.

    So, um, what's the deal?

    Confused

    I've been doing quite a bit with the Wiki already, especially in the Vintage and rules areas. Some of the rules stuff may wind up getting consolidated into a few larger articles in the future but I'm OK with that.
    I am no longer on MTGS staff, so please don't contact me asking me to do staff things. :|

    It uses the same software (MediaWiki) as Wikipedia, but it's not directly affiliated with Wikipedia.

    I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to Wiki. I created an account, and I'm allowed to just add to the articles, right? Do I need permission first?

    You can add articles, yes! The admins will probably comment back to you about your first few, to get your contributions to be what they want, so just take that in the helpful spirit in which it is meant to be taken.
    CoMPACT wants you!

    I have noticed a trend about this as I edit as well and it is not a good one. We are a totally different site with different goals. We also are not nearly as large as Wikipedia and therefore some of the nessasary parts of Wikipedia are not nessasary here.

    Alot of you also need to look at other articles before making new ones. There is a general style you will want to follow and most of you are not. In the future attempt to do so.

    VestDan and I are also looking to add two more admins so we are fully functional. We have two good canidates but will not be making the selections for about a week.

    Player bio's should be re-written and trimmed into their own articles. Copy-pasting is generally not tolerated, and en.wikipedia has been cracking down on that pretty hard...though we are not Wikipedia :)...seriously though...I'll look at it.

    Anyway, I can't want until user javascript is enabled.
