Using Show Preview

Hello What-eez-it-stwong-bayad, I see that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I want to point out the Show Preview button. It's right next to the Save Page button when you edit. You should use it whenever you are making a lot of experimental edits, for example when you are trying to get formatting right. Using the Show Preview button is quicker and easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and will keep recent changes and page histories from being flooded. Thanks, — Defender1031*Talk 18:44, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Just a little reminder. — Defender1031*Talk 20:46, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Sorry about that I was exited and forgot to check my edits. Tenerence Love  22:01, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Creating pages

Hey Tenerence, I noticed that for the first two pages you created, you created them as a subpage in your user space, then created a separate page in the mainspace. You don't have to do that. You can just create the page in its final destination. Or, if you would like, you can create the page in your user space, then move that page to its final destination, but it's generally discouraged per our standards to create two separate pages that have the same content. I also noticed that you originally created your second page as "my-other-soon-to-be-page". Your first page appears to be successful thus far, so "my-soon-to-be-page" isn't really an accurate title anymore. So, good work. What you could have done is remove the content of "my-soon-to-be-page" and put what you put in "my-other-soon-to-be-page" in its place rather than creating another user subpage. Is there a reason you created the pages like this? The Knights Who Say Ni 04:59, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Um... guess it's just poor planning on my part. Now that I think about it I could have used the sandbox. I used those pages as kind of a "rough draft". Feel free to delete them. Tenerence Love 02:24, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

My Signature

Testing my signature {{User:Tenerence Love/sig}} 17:02, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

(clears throat) Oh... Preeow! Tenerence Love  01:38, 23 April 2012 (UTC)


Vandals

What should I do next time there is a vandal? I was getting tired of reverting those edits. Tenerence Love  20:31, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Actually, you did great. There is one more thing you can do, which is to notify an admin that a vandal is attacking. As I understand it, they can often be found in the IRC. Whether or not you do that, the first admin who sees it will block the vandal. I know how tiring it can be, but it's worth it because you're keeping the wiki running smoothly. Thanks for your efforts. The Knights Who Say Ni 23:18, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

My Picture

I can't seem to load my "Rotating Computer Graphic" at the bottom of my page unless I click it to view the information. How do I fix that? I cleared my cookies, cache, and history. I've tried Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. Tenerence Love  16:39, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

It seems the wiki's image resizing algorithm has some problem with gifs. If you try viewing the generated thumbnail directly it tells you the file has errors. I manually set the size to the same as the actual image you uploaded so that it won't need to resize it. — Defender1031*Talk 18:47, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks DeFender! Tenerence Love  18:50, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Unsigned Talk Posts

How do you sign sign talk posts for other people? I mean like:

Have you ever considered the making and selling of tiny breads? 70.87.89.90 (left unsigned) 00:47, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

I'm just curious. I was browsing around the wiki and found many talk pages where people left their posts unsigned. And also, should I sign posts for people even though the post is old? Tenerence Love  00:47, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

There is a template, located at {{unsigned|Username|06:53, 14 March 1592 (UTC)}}. The use of this template is not very widely enforced. My opinion is that adding the signatures just to add them would barely be productive, and it would flood the recent changes list. That said, I can't tell you not to use the template. You can use it if you would like; there are certainly situations where having the timestamps would be helpful. If you're sold on adding the signatures, I would suggest using it if there is one on a page that you are adding a talk post to. The Knights Who Say Ni 02:11, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
If you are going to use it though, please make sure that you use the correct timestamp, meaning, find the actual edit where the user made the talk post, and copy the timestamp from that edit. — Defender1031*Talk 09:34, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Actually pretty hard-to-read message board sign

Hey Tenerence; I liked that signature board you came up with. It's too bad you can't use it. However, if you want to display it on your user page in whatever way you want, feel free. I notice you aren't using the rotatey gif right now; would you consider abandoning it in favor of the message board sign? Do whatever you feel like doing. The Knights Who Say Ni 04:44, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Oh... That picture eh? You know, I have been working hard on that. And lashing out on the frame rate more often then usual... Yeah, you know what? I'll put it on-a my userpage. Thanks for the idea! Tenerence Love  05:40, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
