Forums: Index > Watercooler > New projects...

Rollbackers, Gentlemen, Prinnies, Razzles, Vegetables, Donkeysaliva, Obesefolk, and UC's alike. I have a new project projects for the wiki...

There are many unused photos, here. I need a few plucky members to go through them and either tag them for deletion, or use them in an article based on the following criteria:

  • An image being useful will be left up to the individual user seeing it. If it's useful, it should be used in an article upon discovery.
  • If an image is above 1MB in size, and not useful, tag it for deletion.
  • If an image is flat out not useful, also tag it for deletion.
  • If an image is ABOVE 1MB in size, but deemed useful, resize it to under a MB and then use it in an article. MS paint would be fine.

The next order of business Myself, Happypal , Veggienater , BestRobot and Ricey have been working on, but I feel as though it's developed into something worth wiki-wide attention. The Usage & Description sections need to be added, completed, and revised for ALL weapons articles on the wiki. Some general guidelines...

  • "Usage & Description" that order please. Other way doesn't roll off the tongue as well.
  • As always, and per wiki policy. (Bought to my attention by BestRobot) Don't use personal pronouns when writing/editing U&D sections.
  • Attempt to be sensible when writing a usage section. If YOU use an unorthodox strategy when utilizing a paticular gun, that doesn't mean that it will fit the average user's playstyle. (I.E, shotguns are to be used up close.)
  • Refrain from referring to a specific class or skill or how a gun COULD be used if a certain skill had X number of points in it. It's GENERAL strategy. Stuff like this can be noted in a different section, under notes, for example.

Upon completion of these projects (They will be completed. I fully intend on seeing this through before my term as "Temp-op" comes to a close. I'll finish them myself if need be.)

Thank you for your cooperation,

I'm guessing its safe to say that images from 2009 probably aren't going to be used again anytime soon.. I'll see what I can do in my spare time, since everything has been sporadic the past week. the semester is winding down Razldazlchick 04:35, April 19, 2011 (UTC)

My contribution to the U&D was VERY minor. I actually only edited my favorite gun, the Anarchy (check it out everyone) shameless self plug. I have my hands full with work, looking for a house, and liaison work BUT I will check out what guns I can, when I can. As for the pics, I will at least clean up my own soon.

Thanks for the help people. I'll start today on the images and then alternate between doing that and the U&D sections. Love all of you. Except you, robot. You're incapable of that sort of thing.You're just cold and dead on the inside. Because you're a robot. And robots are incapable of feeling emotion. I don't care how well your emotion emulation program fools the others. You won't get me. Nohai 11:14, April 19, 2011 (UTC)

also, what if they are being used on another site? KudlaMaster has a bunch of his photos featured on another site, should we just put them under USERNAME/pictures if they are being used elsewhere? Razldazlchick 14:40, April 19, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia is not a hosting service. That said, it doesn't mean we have to be dicks. All of his images are now referenced in user:KudlaMaster/Items. Carry On. happypal (talk • contribs • inventory) 14:54, April 19, 2011 (UTC)

Other things to do while editing

When you are editing a page, if possible, please also do these minor tasks:

  • A few weapons are still missing navigation templates. Please add them when you see they are missing: [1].
  • Remove the empty lines between the infobox_weapon, and the first paragraph: They add useless empty space, and put bad formatting on the page: "before" "after" "diff".

That is all. happypal (talk • contribs • inventory) 07:42, April 22, 2011 (UTC)
