FANDOM


Tried editting in some things on the main page of the wiki, but some strange formatting additions were added. Undoing the edit did not fully revert to previous state, strangely enough.? Varquynne (talk) 07:35, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Went to source and modified layout to look like it did before my edit. Seems like it was somewhat successful. Varquynne (talk) 08:08, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Hey VarQuynne, it was me who added the formatting - to make the front page display those three sub menus the way it does (I wanted to make good use of the available space). If you want to edit the front page that's cool (be bold!), but it's probably best to do it in the source code so you can see where the formatting code brackets: <div></div> are. None of the other pages on this wiki have any formatting except for Traits so don't be afraid to go messing around and correct old information etc. --Revoran|My talk 10:35, November 25, 2012 (UTC)
Cool, thanks Revoran. :) I've editted other wikis before, but this is the first that has offered a "visual" editting tool. Seems like it has a few quirks to it. I'm used to editting directly in the source, anyway, though. Heh. Varquynne (talk) 23:31, November 26, 2012 (UTC)

I've been making a lot of changes to the front page and could use some feedback on the additions. I typically like front pages to lean more toward the visual side, since I think it generates a bit more interest. However, I realize that it can be a bit too much sometimes if the graphics don't mesh well or the relative sizes/proportions of images are off. Specifically, I thought that dividing the content of the wiki into 9 main categories gives more structure and would make it easier to organize the content - but are the icons I made appropriate? Should they be taken out or modified further? Varquynne (talk) 07:36, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

I think your changes are overall very good. I made a small adjustment in putting the introductory paragraph back at the top (above the image slider) and added a divider. Let me know what you think. --Revoran|My talk 08:19, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
I was wavering back and forth on whether to put it above or below the slider. I think it looks good above the slider with the divider in place.
It would be nice to be able to edit the title of the wiki so that it is "StarDrive Wiki" instead of "Stardrive Wiki" (in the upper left corner). Eventually, it'd be nice to have the logo for the game in that position. Varquynne (talk) 08:33, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
It's up to you - I don't mind too much in the end. As for the page title, unfortunately that can't be done without admin help, or possibly the help of a Wikia staff member. --Revoran|My talk 22:44, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
Good call. I left Keith a message about it on his talk page. Hopefully he's still out and about here somewhere. :D Varquynne (talk) 22:56, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

Main page "buttons"Edit

I was thinking about making the images for the categories more "button-like" and entice clicking. I added a styled border and boosted the color saturation in the images. Here's a mockup of the buttons together - please let me know what you think: http://i.imgur.com/BXOuZ.jpg Varquynne (talk) 11:11, November 29, 2012 (UTC)

Requested a change to the title area of the page from Wikia staff.  I don't think this is something I can change directly based on what I've read.  If you know otherwise, just let me know.

Old Page DeleteEdit

This wiki has quite a few old pages that have now been summed up in one page. Such as the Traits and Modules, We need someone to delete the individual pages of each to get rid of the clutter. PreWarp (talk) 21:20, March 16, 2013 (UTC)

Main page sidebarEdit

Not sure I like the boxes added to the sidebar. However, I fixed the formatting so that they aren't different sizes and such. I see that they are more effective at popping that area off the screen and drawing attention, but what do you guys think? At the very least, I don't think the color jives well with the theme. --Varquynne (talk) 21:33, March 19, 2013 (UTC)

Sure color looks.. weird ShaTiK (talk) 21:43, March 19, 2013 (UTC)

Organizing Tech page in a better wayEdit

Ideas? ShaTiK (talk) 21:44, March 19, 2013 (UTC)

What I was thinking of was sorta like this.
1276063071

The headers will be able to stay stationary while you scroll through the Tech List. It could be a fix until someone makes an interactive tech page after launch. If someone does... PreWarp (talk) 22:34, March 19, 2013 (UTC)

Well... Don't think that would make much of a difference. In the end I think we probably should leave things as they are for the moment: techtree is always available (apart from Secret branch), so it far less more useful than hulls, buildings and modules. UPD I've almost finished polishing Tech page - only thing left to do is to replace all the icons with ingame ones. I'll do it when I get home ShaTiK (talk) 09:30, March 20, 2013 (UTC)
