Wanted Pages

I've added the phantom 25-50 Newbie games (albeit a short description, since they were played in 2004 and nobody cares any more), but now the {{newbiegames}} template works. I've also added about 5-10 other Scummers' pages. I think once they get up over 5 links to them, that we should just create a basic "This is a scummer that joined November 12, 1997"-type page, so that there aren't a bunch of broken links out there. Users with less than five links we shouldn't have to worry about.

From the PM:

Right, I've moved the wiki flat files over to /mafiawiki and moved MediaWiki to /wiki. The change on the wiki shouldn't be noticeable unless I've messed something up (jeep might want to check to make sure I haven't...).

Anyway, Mr. Flay and I have been playing a bit with MediaWiki, but now I want to invite the newly formed Wiki Group to register and test as well. Once you've registered we'll set you up as a Sysop (you'll probably only ever need this added access for the few protected pages we might have).
Before we get started on the bulk of the moving, there's probably a few things we should discuss, such as:
Categories - What categories do we need? (Roles, Rules/Gameplay, Games, Setups, Users, Forum, Wiki... what else?) Format and Style - How should pages be formatted? Within a category, I'd like to keep things pretty standard. Also some style conventions... how to name pages, stuff like that. Stuff We Should Have - I've mentioned one above; I'd really like to see us start getting some information on the games we've played on the wiki. I think one of the next things I will play with is making pages for the Open Games... mess around with the format and such. Likewise with the setups, I'd like to get the various Open Setups from the discussion thread on the wiki for easy reference. What else?

Anyway, that's enough to get us started for now.

User override for skins?

I don't have a lot of experience with CSS, but I was going to try and experiment a bit with the skins. It doesn't appear, though, that this installation of the MediaWiki software imports the user's CSS overrides ([[User:<blah>/<skinname>.css]]). It'd make experimenting a lot easier without someone having to edit the site-wide css ;). (apparently I didn't sign, before --Azkar 12:22, 2 February 2007 (MST))

Yeah, according to it's not turned on by default, I'll see if jeep/mith think it's a good idea. -- Mr. Flay 14:12, 1 February 2007 (MST)


"needs to have all redlinks filled in." Really? Mr Stoofer 06:36, 6 February 2007 (MST)

Probably, since all redlinks there are actual wiki pages on the old wiki. When the [wiki] tag is flipped over we don't want any confusion, right? Obviously many of the CamelCase ones will be redirects... or am I missing something? -- Mr. Flay 13:46, 6 February 2007 (MST)
Well, there is some real junk on this list. I could go through and give you loads of examples but heres a clear one: Great White HaXX0r Krew. Or is this sort of garbage welcome on MafiaWiki? --Mr Stoofer 02:16, 7 February 2007 (MST)
Ehhh, I could take a miss on that one. I never actually loaded the page before...feel free to drop it from the list if it doesn't make sense to you. If someone objects to losing a page, we can always recreate it later if it's actually useful. It's a wiki. :) -- Mr. Flay 18:40, 8 February 2007 (MST)

protecting page...

this page seems semi-official... i've already protected the page from IP edits just b/c it seems to be a hot spot for spammers, but should this page be fully protected?..

Does this list encompass everything that someone can do? We could encourage people to do more things (templates, expanding articles, creating new ones, investigating theory)...

Also, uncategorized pages is empty right now. --Andycyca||me||What? 23:24, 28 February 2009 (EST)


Might be interesting to ask/commission someone to make some graphics for some of the glossary terms and/or roles. Just to give things a little more visual 'Oomph'.--Kublai Khan 10:33, 11 July 2009 (EDT)
