Hello, welcome to the Magickapedia :D --Dethklok52 13:53, 30 January 2011 (PST)

Thanks man, seems like a pretty great place! – Smashman (talk) 14:02, 30 January 2011 (PST)

Element template[edit source]

I sort of like yours; it's far simpler in terms of text. Mine is just a massive switch-case tree. The only way in which mine is better, really, is that I've modified mine so that it accepts the casting key in the event you remember the button combination. Or maybe yours is better since then the wiki will be uniform; it'll be either "water" or "q", not both. --Arrow 15:27, 30 January 2011 (PST)

I did like the key and few possible variations on what it could be called. It's entirely up to you, but yours is definitely more generally useful. – Smashman (talk) 15:37, 30 January 2011 (PST)
I actually came from a site called Strategywiki, and they have this really neat template where you can switch controls around. You can choose from a drop-down list and tell the site you have, for example, a Wii. Then all the buttons on the page immediately switch to pictures of Wii buttons; you can do this for apparently up to four consoles. The template is located here. I was thinking we could use this template to refer to magicks as either their real name (Revive), the elements you need (Life, Lightning), or the key presses necessary to cast it (W-A). I personally have an easier time remembering that Revive is W-A than Life, Lightning, as I have to resort to looking at the table at the bottom left. W-A is more like typing to me, which is far more natural. --Arrow 15:38, 30 January 2011 (PST)
By the way, I added you on Steam. ----Arrow = Talk = Sandbox 15:49, 30 January 2011 (PST)
That does seem pretty useful. I'll take a look into it, but it does look like something that'll require plug-ins and CSS modifications. I'll speak to the owner guy. Thanks for adding me on Steam. I'm off now for a while. I'll accept tomorrow. – Smashman (talk) 15:52, 30 January 2011 (PST)
Hey, I found out partially what's wrong with the element templates from before. In order for the switch cases and #ifs to work in templates, we need the ParserFunctions Extension. Think you could have the owner of the wiki install this? It'd make things pretty awesome for templates. --> Coccan.gif Arrow (Talk) -- Sandbox 16:29, 2 February 2011 (PST)
Don't I know it. There's huge amounts of stuff I want to talk to the owner about, but he hasn't been on in days. Since it was set up infact! There's no trace of him on Steam either. But yes, I hear you, thanks. – Smashman (talk) 16:42, 2 February 2011 (PST)

All Updates, Right alignment[edit source]

Hi, On my (big) display, the "all updates" link on the main page looks a bit out of place. Maybe we should just indent it, or leave it at the left? (Screenshot) --XKCD 12:08, 31 January 2011 (PST)

Indeed, that's where I put it, but it does look quite odd. I'll mess with it. – Smashman (talk) 12:31, 31 January 2011 (PST)
The updates section in general seems a little big; I think the community section should have more white space since it uses complete sentences, whereas the updates just have a date. --Arrow = Talk = Sandbox 12:37, 31 January 2011 (PST)
How about 66%,34% like in the first row? Thats how it would look like --XKCD 13:03, 31 January 2011 (PST)

Element icon size[edit source]

Hi, the current {{Element|x}} icon size of 40px seems way too big to me. Someone on Chapter 1 page (Old revision, since I fixed it) even started replacing {{Element}} templates with [[File:...]] includes. Could we agree on a smaller size? (I don't want to edit the template itself since it seems that you and arrow are currently in charge of that). Thanks, --XKCD (Talk) 23:03, 2 February 2011 (PST)

Sure. Now that you mention it, they do look really rather large. Any size you had in mind? I believe they were 32px before. – Smashman (talk) 05:18, 3 February 2011 (PST)
I personally think the 32px versions looked mighty fine. --StephenSwat 07:26, 3 February 2011 (PST)
I've adjusted the template for 32px. It should look better now. --> Coccan.gif Arrow (Talk) -- Sandbox 07:29, 3 February 2011 (PST)
Hi, it seems we're back to the old 48px again, why is that? --XKCD (Talk) 00:35, 8 February 2011 (PST)

First Spambot[edit source]

Yeah, we got our first spambot just now. I reverted it. D'you think you could ask the admins about recruiting moderators? It looks like we're going to start needing them. --> Coccan.gif Arrow (Talk) -- Sandbox 20:54, 3 February 2011 (PST)

I could ask s3n5ai--Dethklok52Element lightning.png 21:51, 3 February 2011 (PST)
This is EXACTLY why I need to speak to him. I've been trying a few methods, but for some reason I can't get ahold of him. Also, klok. You need to use colons to tab your comments in. – Smashman (talk) 00:56, 4 February 2011 (PST)

Hey Thanks For The Kind Words![edit source]

Sorry I've been busy and sick lately =(. I tried adding you on steam but it didn't work through their website. I'll try adding you when I get home. You can also try adding me: s3n5ai or jobaker . Not sure which or if it matters, but I'd try adding s3n5ai first. I look forward to chattin' --The preceding unsigned comment was added by s3n5ai (talk) • (contribs)

Ah, excellent! My friends list is likely full at the moment, but I'll make some space. Thanks, and I hope we do manage to speak soon, there are a number of quite urgent things we should go through. Thanks. – Smashman (talk) 17:01, 4 February 2011 (PST)

Hello From Realchaos1[edit source]

You can contact me directly if you need to get a hold of s3n5ai. He is back and forth with school and work. I work full time from home, the majority of my time is spent on the computer. I added you on Steam, I also use GTalk, IRC (Freenode / Efnet primarily), FB / Twitter. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by Realchaos1 (talk) • (contribs)

Like buses! Wait for one and two come along! I'm glad I'll be able to speak to someone, thanks for adding me and I hope we speak soon. Cheers. – Smashman (talk) 17:06, 4 February 2011 (PST)

I got promoted![edit source]

I been promoted to bureaucrat! I promise to do my best! :D --Dethklok52Element lightning.png 17:05, 4 February 2011 (PST)

Mind promoting me to bureaucrat? I've got a number of things I'd like to do, that are pretty essential. Cheers. – Smashman (talk) 17:07, 4 February 2011 (PST)
