Hi, I know you undid the change to the Sample Habits page since they were supposed to be positive-only, but I don't totally agree? I don't understand why they have to be positive-only.
For example, look at the Habit "Drink Water/Soda". Wouldn't it make more sense if the player clicks + when they drink water (good), and - when they drink soda (bad)? Unless the Habit implies you click + for drinking both water and soda? I'm just assuming that most people would think drinking soda is bad compared to water.
Another reason I'm confused is that there's a Habit for "Take Stairs/Elevator" that you made positive-only, like the rest. But on the Gamifying Your Lists page, there's a Habit for "Use the stairs / take the elevator" (essentially the same thing) that has positive and negative sides. I understand each person will use the Habits differently, but I thought there should be some consistency on the wiki to help new players. And I think the point above applies here too.
So, if you could clear this up, I'd appreciate it!
I added it because the page itself is very long and there are a lot of pictures on it. Therefore, it takes a long time to load. But the page was created to be able to update the same article on the Russian wiki. Therefore, I need not so much the contents of the page itself, as its history to immediately see what changes have been made to it.
As for the internal link, as far as I know, the page history cannot be accessed via wiki text. The link to it is formed by substituting ?action=history to the URL of the page. Therefore, I made it an external link.
But if someone finds a way to do this through an internal link, I will be glad to know about it, because it is interesting :D
Hey! :) I managed to create an article for whats new hr 2019, but before I did it correctly (i.e. by creating an article, if I got it right - link is here), I also did it wrong once xD here's the link to the wrong page. Is there any way you could delete it?
No problem :) thanks for fixing my mistake xD though I think I'm getting the hang of things finally :) I followed the instructions in the Creating & Editing Whats New Pages page and I think I ticked everything off of the New Year checklist. :) yay! Oh and btw, have a great 2019!!!!
Hey, is it possible to give a bot status to a JazzisBot user? This will be my bot to perform the same actions. In particular, I want to use it for affixing interwiki links between articles on the Russian and English wiki.
I don't want us to forget about the project. Perhaps it would be helpful to start creating a "wish list" of things you (or others) believe should be included in the tutorial pages. That would help us decide on the number of pages and how to organize them. Take care!
Some items I left as is like A "where do I start?" section should come much earlier than presented and List of pages to edit / audit when adding a quest as this is meant to be a tutorial so people become use to editing the wiki, particular using the source editor, not a replacement for the Guidance for Scribes and Beyond the Classic Editor:Advanced Wiki Editing.
Let me know if anything outstanding. I'm hoping to make a dent on it next weekend all going well.
I think, if I follow you, I agree: I would really prefer it to read more like walkthrough/tutorial. We might want to take a bird's eye view, recruit some new people too. I can speak from personal personal experience that I our wiki pages were only *so-so*. I was left confused with specific procedues (claiming pages, naming image files, etc.). **Procedural** things. I feel this is where you can make a big impact with your tutorial, and I'm very much on board.
I too remember it was a little awkward getting started and working out how to do things and I'm in IT.
I was lucky when I started there was two very knowledgeable and active senior wiki editors around so they help me quite a bit with questions (lots and lots of questions) and didnt get too upset when they were correcting all my mistakes.
<grins> Technical writer here. Will be happy to look it over and give you a quasi-professional bit of feedback when you're ready.
I think, though, that you shouldn't worry too much -- for one, this is a community Wikia, and as such, anyone who wants to work on their Scribe Tier is welcome. As long as it's usable, it'll be fine - anything that isn't working will get nudged as people run into issues, like you yourself did once upon a time. If we were perfect right out of the gate, there wouldn't be anything for people to fix!
Right! I'm not suggesting we need a screenshot of every button and command. But more of what some of us in information professions might call workflow or knowledge management. THAT is what I struggled with early on. We can certainly build up or link out to technical things, but that certainly won't be my strong suit. I'm an organization, style guide, process person. Somewhere between the forest and the trees.
I have finished fixing the template for you. The Artists/Trello/blogs links are still to be filled out. (I remove all the artists names as they did not match the news page).
Regarding editing the templates I noticed you were using Visual Editor to try and edit the template. I highly recommend when editing template pages like the Pet pages or the Whats News page to use source editor. (Click the down arrow and choose source editor). This will you to allow you to clearly see how and what needs to change easily. (With the Pets pages it becomes like a questionnaire at that point).
The other thing I also suggest is you copy and paste from the source material. I noticed in a number of things that your case was incorrect. (Ie the page overall). These things are important as artists, writers, and translators use this information.
Yes when I look at Special:UncategorizedPages I still see the category. However I noticed the last update to the page was 22:28, 8 October 2018. That is before my edit. I assume whatever cron job hasn't occurred yet to update the list and take into account of the missing pages.
Yep. There's a setting that only Bureaucrats can change in one of the command files, and it's a manual color change. You -should- be able to see yourself as green when you sign with four tildes now, at least. I knew where and what the file that needed to be changed was awhile ago, but I kept forgetting to ask Lady Alys to change my signature color as well.
Okay, I tweaked one of the controls (https://habitica.wikia.com/wiki/MediaWiki:Wikia.css) -- your name shows up in bold green now when you sign off on things and in change logs. That's the one I can control - I'm still looking for the other one that I couldn't change.
