Hi Renegade, I saw that you're planning on doing some work on the AphidPedia. I think that's great! We're always looking for talented editors who understand the ARG. I wanted to let you know that so far, TigerLilyLynn and Shifty have done a lot of work on the OpAphid section of the wiki. You might want to send them a message at the forums and let them know about the redesign, so they can help contribute ideas. (And maybe you've already done this, but if not, just wanted to give you a heads-up). I'm looking forward to what you come up with, and if I have any good ideas I'll be sure to pitch in. Thanks!--JayHenry 12:57, 18 February 2007 (CST)

Hi Renegade,
Saw your work on redesigning AphidPedia. Like JayHenry, I'm always happy to have more editors who know about the ARG enough to take on work like this. I noticed you made Template Tac and Bro so you could use the icons. I think what you needed was already embodied in Template:Init. The way to use it is to write {{Init|Tachyon}}, which gives TAC. If you do {{Init|Brother}} you get BRO. Same for Op and pretty much any character that makes a blog. You can see all the options at Template talk:Init. Let me know if this is what you needed. That way we can avoid having duplicate templates. Again, thanks for your work on the wiki!

Sorry about that. I actually had a look through the template namespace to avoide creating dupes, but "init" isn't exactly descriptive...could you use your mighty powers to kill them?
And, while you're at it, have a look at my request on Template:Aphidblock?
And I'm on Tigerlilylynn and Shifty's talk pages right now to invite them to comment.

No problem. Sorry you couldn't find the template--is there anything we could have done to make it easier to find?
I took a look at the Aphidblock template... unfortunately I'm not a very code-savvy editor, so I actually didn't even understand the question *looks down embarassedly* Best to check with Brucker or JayHenry. Do let me know if you need help with anything else... I might be more useful next time.
Thanks for getting Shify and Tigerlilylynn involved, I'm sure they'll have lots of good input.

I, personally, am a fan of central template catalogues, something like Help:Templates or LGPedia:Templates. But some links on the Help pages might work as well. Just an overview of what's available.
And, about aphidblock. I've basically prepared everything:
The link leads to Mediawiki:Monobook.css - that file gets included in this skin's style directives; you can see, for example, how the background is defined. Now I provided some code - that code will recolor the links in aphidblock to the lighter greenish color I also used on the AphidPedia redesign.
So all you'd have to do is copy the code I provided, follow the link, hit edit, paste, and hit save.
Pretty please? :) :)

I did what you said, but I don't see any difference. uh-oh. OwenIsCool 17:17, 18 February 2007 (CST)
