    Weapons Categories

    November 27, 2011 by Martin The Mess

    Okay, with my new entries on some of the weapons used by the Eastern Bloc, which I've said are now also in service with the Fed/Imps so that they have a chance of actually appearing in the story at some point, we've got an interesting conundrum. I've gotten a request earlier to put some sort of category up with the various Hand Weapons all in one place, and now I've also got enough to maybe have a separate Space Weapons category as well. The Technical Terms category is getting a bit ridiculously large and unwieldly.

    So what should I do? Separate Space Weapons and Hand Weapons categories? One overall "Weapons Systems" category with everything from Lance Torpedoes and Gravitic Rams to Plasma Revolvers and Slugthrowers? And should I separa…

    Well, at least I've transferred over all the Season 4.3 classes of ship from the old Earth Fleet website to this one. Next two big projects are putting up articles on the medals from that sub-page of the old EF site, and designing a few new post-Third Civil War classes of ships for this new season. Which is almost over, but next season will need new ships as well. After that, it will be going through the old Season 4.2 and Season 4.3 stories to make articles on the people, ships, and planets mentioned back then, and trying to keep it all consistent. Maybe even Season 8, eventually. Any help in doing any of the above would be very much appreciated, and if you have any questions about how, just ask, you've all got my email and most of yo…

    My home wifi router died this morning (Tues Sept 6 2011) and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get it replaced. This means I can't get online to work on this wiki from my laptop. I'd work from the downstairs family desktop, but its browser for some reason doesn't really like the WYSIWYG editor and adding links is a real pain in the neck. That and one mis-bumped key killed the almost-complete article I was writing on Orbitals. Ah well. I'll let Marcus know when I'm back online reliably and he can delete this blog post.

    Here are some hints for my fellow editors on how to deal with the WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface used by the Wikia software to create and edit articles on this Wiki.

    1.) Don't use a complex word processor to pre-write articles. Many of them embed formatting information along with the text or otherwise get fancy with the text markup, and some of these markups do not translate well when cut-and-pasted into the WYSIWYG editor. Specifically, quote marks and apostrophes in things like "Wilke's Star" come in multiple varieties, such as open and close quotes used by the fancier sort of word processor. Unfortunately, the WYSIWYG editor only uses the one generic kind of apostrophe and quote mark...but can still read and display t…

    Well, I figured I'd get started on transferring over some of the data from my old Earth Fleet page to the TwikI, but I managed to forget to make the "Starship Classes" page a Category Page. I did the same muckup with the original version of the Category:Former PC's page. Apparently redirects don't work here like they do on TV Tropes, so I can't figure out how to rename the old page without simply creating a new page with the right name and cut-n-pasting over all the text and such. Or is this something only Albigensia can do as the founder/owner of this wiki?
