Infobox system

Hello, would a wiki-wide switch to User:RoyCurtis/Infobox_test be a favorable action? (They will be moved to the Template: namespace) --RoyCurtis 08:38, 25 October 2012 (EDT)

I'd be okay with that. --Hyper Anthony 12:56, 25 October 2012 (EDT)
I have forgotten to mention; many infoboxes are currently under protection, it may be worth unprotecting these temporarily so that I may begin the transition. Alternatively, I can prepare transitional pages and instructions. --RoyCurtis 14:43, 25 October 2012 (EDT)
Let me know which ones you're interested in by priority and I'll temporarily bring them off of protection. Many of the ones that are protected are used on the main page or on high-traffic pages that would be easy to vandalize if they were open. We've had some really awful incidents relating to that before, where a vandal wrote over entire pages with some crafty CSS. --Hyper Anthony 15:58, 25 October 2012 (EDT)
Understood; I will prepare a prioritized itinerary. --RoyCurtis 16:46, 25 October 2012 (EDT)
User:RoyCurtis#Core types is my prioritized list, in order of transcluded page count. The code change for each should be quick. If you wish, we may meet at a location in-world to coordinate this. --RoyCurtis 18:16, 25 October 2012 (EDT)

Palmshire articles

Hello; There are numerous articles and categories dedicated to political lore surrounding Palmshire and its related communities. This includes pages for various citizens separate from their user profile, such as Bach Zhaa, 1st Viscount Metaville. Many of these articles contain red links, are uncategorized as lore and use inconsistent styling.

To correct these issues may be a long task, however I would like to ask the following before proceeding:

  • Are these articles warranted in this wiki?
  • If so, should they be reduced in length or scope to fit the purpose of the wiki?
  • Should they be moved into their own prefix (e.g. Lore: or Palmshire:) or even as subpages of User:Legion?
  • Are they worth updating to remove red links or update templates for a more consistent style?

On a technical level, there is no harm in these articles remaining, as wiki pages take a negligible amount of space and resource load.

Will someone please update the SDK wiki with relevant information like walk-through to make, build and compile an SDK application and a 64Bit SDK application? I am lost. Currently everyone is using MS Visual Studio. every attempt to get my old bot to compile has been unsuccessful. Thank You CosmicTruth 308024
