  • The #ifexist in the template causes problems on Harold's page.

    I suggested a solution on its talk page. Could you take a look at it and maybe unlock the template? If you have a better idea, please let me know.

  • Play,  I just moved Episode 317 to Entanglement, which was tweeted earlier today, but I can't seem to edit any of the associated template pages.  It's like I've been locked out of them: I click EDIT and nothing happens.  Anyway, I thought I'd better give you a heads up so you know why the change is half done.

    • I was able to do it without problems, I think a similar problem happened with me some time ago. Shouldn't be a prolonged issue though.

    • Oh, good. I figured it was probably a browser issue, although I tried both Safari and Chrome, and neither worked. Mac-related bugs are usually slow to be fixed because they're an afterthought.

  • I believe there is problem with the whitered value: the white square with red corners should be used instead of the current red one.

    Also, I think the whitered name is confusing; I first thought that it was a single square, not a white and a red one.

    I made a copy with a few changes:

    1. There is a square2 parameter, where the second box can be given, so now more combinations are possible. The template checks if the parameter is empty and sets the image sizes accordingly.
    2. The perp value is changed to WhiteRed and it results in a single box. The other value names are also capitalized now to make them consistent.
    3. Though it's not about the boxes, the === is replaced with a <br> in the Dossier part.

    Unfortunatelly applying these changes to the actual template would require further changes in the POI tabs, but I would happily do those as well.

    • The template is unlocked, feel free to do any necessary changes to fix it, this is the best part a wiki. You seem to know your way around it. I'll see if I have more time later to take a look into the issue more carefully.

    • Thank you.

      I made the changes in the template and in the POI tabs as well.

      The temporary User:P-t-x/TemplatePerson page can be deleted.

  • I realize that you are the busiest young man on the Iberian pennisula, but I wanted to run an idea past you regarding the POI templates.

    As I've been going thru the various episode pages, I've noticed that the coding of the POI template pages varies somewhat, most likely due to the original template which was later revised. It is my strong belief that these tabs should be consistent across the board.

    I wanted to share with you two (2) suggestions that I thought of for your consideration.

    1. That we paste the correct coding into the POI pages for the remaining POI pages of season 3, thus avoiding any future troubles.  We could of course lock them up again until the ep airs.

    2. That we make a plan to visually inspect each of the prior POI tabs to ensure that they all conform to the correct format as well as possess a "cleaner"  dossier in a consice manner that offers a "tease" for the reader to want to learn more.

    Of course, I would be happy to help you with this project in any way possible. For example, you could unlock each remaining season 3 POI tab and I could  paste the correct coding and you could turn around and lock them up again until they actually air. 

    These are just suggestions based on observations and I don't want for you to feel obligated with everything else that you have going on. 

    Regards, Wilem

    • I think in this case less is more, we still have the articles of the POI characters, we should have more information only on those minor POIs. I vote for simple as well, otherwise we could just link the articles.

    • I am glad that we have reached a basic consensus on the preferred format of the Dossier section of the POI page. I believe that we can take all the time we need to create just the right dossier for each POI.  I recommended a 3 line format simply as that was the level of content to which a slider bar would not be required.

      I just wanted to take a second to reiterate my original concern regarding the POI template and the need for consistency.  At some earlier time, there was a preliminary POI template that differs from the final version in several key aspects.  What I would like to do, and what PS2 has agreed to partner with me to accomplish, is to first open up the remaining eps for S3 and insert the correct coding for each POI before locking the page again prior to broadcast.  Secondly, at some later date, we can peruse the existing POI tabs to make sure that the POI coding is in the correct format and not the older version no longer being used. In this manner, at the completion of the project, the coding for each POI tab will be consistent and we will not have to worry about someone copying and pasting the older version of the code into a newly aired episode, thereby perpetuating the current problem.

  • I have a couple edit requests for the locked Template:HR Members.

    1) Alonzo Quinn: Needs an X on his face, needs an occupation: Advisor to the Mayor, and perhaps listed as "In custody" in large red?

    2) Dominic Brady: listed as "Active" but has a large X on his face. Don't know which is right.

    3) I don't know how this could be done, but is it possible to have "undercover" somewhere in Laskey's profile?

    Thanks!

    • 1) Alonzo Quinn: I must have forgotten to add an X to his face, but I had it planned since "The Devil's Share". I'm adding it right now, and also adding "Mayor's Chief of Staff" (which is his official job).

      2) Dominic Brady: Yes, I had a little of trouble with him because I think I related the name to other character (Petersen) before, I probably forgot to fix that too - already done.

      3) That's a great idea, he did started working briefly as an undercover asset, and he earned it.

      Thank you so much for your suggestions to update it, and also welcome to the wiki! Feel free to ask me about anything else :)

  • Play,  while I'm catching up on our viewing party, I'm going to copy-edit each summary, break them up into Acts, the way we discussed once upon a time and  place the flashbacks as they occur.  You and Wilem might want to check to see that the pictures are still arranged to your satisfaction, just to be safe.

    • So, let the revision and de-linking begin!  We'd better let Obi knows, since he loves to link.

  • Play, I just set up tabs for the extended version of the pilot, anticipating our pending viewing party, including the L template and Ep template, but still can't get the doggone red links off the overview page's tabs.  The articles are created, I can link among them, but once I get back to the overview page, it doesn't link.  It's maddening.  Would you have a look, and let me know what I've done wrong?  I've checked other articles, and can't see what the problem is!  Thank you!!

  • Hi Play!

    Since your knowledge and talent in crafting visual templates surpasses mine, I was wondering if you could come up with an elaborate-looking (yet easily used) templates for the Episodes Portal, as well as the Main/Recurring Characters portal.

    I envisioned the characters portal boxes having a blue square for living characters, yellow for unknown status, and red for dead. As for the episodes portal, I thought perhaps a Machine-like template with the option of altering the borders to differentiate the episodes according to season.

    Cheers!

    • I was already working for a Main/Recurring Characters one, but wasn't thinking about the squares that way. I was considering that maybe we can just use the squares like they use them in the show (in a corner) because the status of the characters will be written above, this way it's similar to the machine.

      Plus, I think it's cool to stay true to the opening scene for example, when writing "Unknown" "Presumed Dead" "Missing" and all of that.

      About the character portal, that sounds ok, though I'm not sure if I get the borders idea. Do you mean making them colourful?

  • Play!! 

    I added the title for 313 (4C) and now nothing links properly.  I tried to fix it but just made it worse.  I have no idea what I did wrong, but I sure did something.  Would you mind taking a peek and tell me what I did so I can fix it? 

    So sorry!!

    • I realize that.  Nevertheless, I thought you should be aware it was something we discussed while you were away rather than me circumventing the discussion process.  The picture should certainly go in the article, however.
