Oh, another trick for wikis - speaking of pluralization - you can tack extra letters onto the end of wiki links. So "[[Wiki link]]s" is a shorter way of writing "[[Wiki link|Wiki links]]".

I noticed that. If you create a page, [[WikiLinks]], though, it'll go to a different page than [[WikiLink]]s. So all those kids either have to know to create pages in the singular or we have to account for their mistake by creating a redirect for the plural.

But yeah, the BrikWars Universe page needs work.


Now things are getting interesting. You also have http://brikwars.com/wiki/index.php?title=Category:BrikWars_Universe

As I said, you might have to tidy up behind me a little.... eek

Suggestion: Every new page for the BrikWars Universe category page should have [[Category:BrikWars Universe]] at the bottom, then once I've done them all, just clear the big list so we just have a category page?

Not too shabby of a list you've got going there. I only saw one issue. ABS already exists and is cleaner. The rest is minor.

Sounds fine to me. I wasn't even sure how to go about creating category pages or why the ones listed were redlinked.

The ones redlinked had either not been created yet, or were created in the new wiki but given a different linkname.

I believe the one place that ABS is mentioned it links to the new place. I have deliberately been removing "brikwars/" from in front of links as that has not been used over at the new wiki and to save confusion / double entries.

Addendum: Also note that some new pages have bluelinked discussions tabs as I have put notes and queries there...

There appears to be two entries for "beige carpet":

http://brikwars.com/wiki/index.php?title=Beige_carpet & http://brikwars.com/wiki/index.php?title=Beige_Carpet - the second one has slightly better formatting. Can you merge please?

I had previously compiled the first into the second, which is why the second looks better. The first just needs deleted but only Admins can delete pages.

I have filled out the categories, so that should help us on our way. I also added Gaming in BrikWars to the categories on the main page and moved Places and Locations to Locations in order to fit with the navigation on the main page (but also because the title made more sense).

All the years are now marked with the Rekonstruktion template. But they still need filled in with stuff. Or we need to scrap the idea as was previously discussed and do a chronology based on events. Or something in between. But until then...

We should just have a marked for deletion template thing that alerts admins in page discussions - then we can put our reasons underneath and sign it with --~~~ so it is like harder for trolls to get it done.

Good idea. Draw it up and I'll use it whenever I find redundancies.

Heh, dunno how to do one. Best I can think of is leave a note in the Talk section of the page and link it here.

That sounds kinda painful. Do you need treatment for that? :wink:
