Naming Convention

I have a suggestion regarding naming conventions on the wiki. A lot of the common terms are going to overlap, and currently the convention seems to be <term>(<game>), which seems both ugly and nonstandard. Why not use the given convention in MediaWiki (which is <game>:<term>), or another convention (like how MoinMoin does it, as <game>/<term>, which parses cleaner in non-wiki use.)

Dipstick

I'm a little confused as to what you're referring to. The only pages I see in the form <term>(<game>) are the character pages. In which case, I'm sure it doesn't really matter if you change it to: <game>:<term>.

I'd like to propose something for the Movelists - instead of using "qcf,d,df + P / f,d,df + S ", we could use the unicode characters for arrows which were implemented even in the first revision of Unicode like ↓↘→,↓,↘ + P or halfcircles like ↷. Such simple symbols may be graphics which can be created easily and we can use our own custom made. Movelists will look much nicer in my opinion. --morbeo 04:00, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Very good idea. Thanks. --James McCloud 18:21, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

I'd also support this. Alternately, we could use the same images that are used on the SRK forums. Would it be possible to set them up in the same fashion as the forums? (:qcf: being a QCF, that is). (I'm a wikinoob, sorry). --Chuckles


Unable to upload .PNG graphics: Although a quick look at upload history shows that people have uploaded .png graphics here as early as a year ago, I seem unable to upload .png graphic files to mediawiki at all, always getting the "...file corrupt..." error. I've tried resaving the .png in many different graphics programs, so they don't seem to be the culprit. A quick Google search shows that others have had the problem too with mediawiki, although the technical details are beyond my understanding.

Cape (on SRK.com forums) says: "It's a relatively common problem with the Wiki software. If the people at mediawiki are to be trusted, then we require someone with the power, to [add] this:
# PNG images
0 string \211PNG image/png
...to /etc/httpd/conf/magic. Might need to restart httpd."

If anyone here is able to help with this problem or knows someone who can, it'd be very much appreciated. I'm working on these .png files for several wikis and really hate to use .gif or .jpg instead.

Edit: This issue seems to have been fixed now. Thanks! --Raisin (April 1, 2007)

The bots have arrived, ideas?

Maybe block new registrations until someone figures out a more permanent solution? --Chuckles

Main Page design

I'll be going through the motions of making our main page nice and shiny. Just a heads up so that people aren't like: Whoa what the FUCK?

Navigation Box

Did anyone else think about putting links to the Strategy Guide, etc, in the navigation box off to the left? I would think it would make sense. Sofa King 15:49, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Spam

JpjHat has been spamming the history page for 2 months. Also, are the forums ever gonna be open for registration again?? Bo 22:46, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Not only him, actually. I'm thinking there are spam bots around here and nobody's there to stop them. Where the are the admins? --SoulEclipse 10:34, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
For my wiki, I implemented the simple ConfirmEdit extension, and it's doing a really great job. Caffeine 19:12, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
  • A lot of users with names like Jpjhat or kn5rtz or something like that ase spamming... can somebody stop them? Besides, we need CAPTCHAs on the registration to stop new bots. Migvel

MediaWiki Update?

Wow. This version of MediaWiki is fairly outdated. Just a little bit. (1.6.8 as opposed to the current 1.11.0) I think it's time to upgrade that mess.Sofa King 18:52, 22 October 2007 (UTC)


Images Broken?

All images across the wiki now just show up as Image:name.ext --JedahsMinistry 01:06, 24 January 2008 (UTC)


Skull Girls

Why is Skull Girls a main link? It's not even released yet and we don't even know the full roster yet... A. C. Glass 15:11, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Injustice

Hi. I made an Injustice page (just search it) and I was wondering if I could have some help. I made a basic page thing but I need people to help add information, clean it up, make it look nice, etc. and eventually add it to the front page, as it's the biggest fighting game of 2013 without a doubt. Thanks!
