RCgame Template Help

Hey dude. I have a problem. I have made a template (RCgame) that is supposed to look like this:

Role/Death: Vanilla Townie, Mislynched on Day 1
Outcome: Loss on Day 3
Fun Rating: RCstar.pngRCstar.pngRCstarempty.pngRCstarempty.pngRCstarempty.png
Mod Rating: RCstar.pngRCstar.pngRCstar.pngRChalfstar.pngRCstarempty.png

And the code is supposed to be very simple, for instance, this:

{{RCgame|VT|Vanilla Townie|MS|2703772|ML|D1|L|D3|2|3.5}}

... BUT. Somehow nothing I can do will make this thing work, and I have tried just about everything, for hours and hours and hours and hours to make it work. Looking at the "code" above, here is an explanation of each of the parts of the template, and how they are used:

  • RCgame = template name
  • VT = Role (will create a redirect to the role's wiki)
  • Vanilla Townie = Role Name
  • MS = Mafiascum (site the game was played on. others will have different abbreviations)
  • 2703772 = link to Lynch post, posted by the mod.
  • ML = Mislynch (there is also K, MK, L, etc)
  • D1 = The day the player was killed/lynched/etc.
  • L = Loss (also, there is Win, Perfect Win, etc)
  • D3 = The day the game was won or lost on (the day it ended)
  • 2 = 2 out of 5 stars for game being fun
  • 3.5 = 3.5 out of 5 stars for the mod moderating the game well.
  • [blank in this example] = x out of 5 stars for the backup mod.

Since I'm working with links and stuff, I have made a few new templates to screw around with on the MS wiki, which will hopefully make some things easier, or even possible to do in the first place.

  • {{!}} = a vertical pipe = |
  • {{ob}} = opening brackets = [[
  • {{cb}} = closing brackets = ]]
  • {{osb}} = opening single bracket = [
  • {{csb}} = closing single bracket = ]
  • {{space}} = " " (a space)

My request is that you can please find what's wrong with my template and FIX IT!!!! I have been working on this thing for hours and hours and my mind is about to explode. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a PM on the forum, and link to this page. To get the code, just rip it all out of the Template:RCgame page. If you need to make a new page to work on everything, feel free to make a new page such as RCgame3 (I have already tried using RCgame2 as a staging area for the "fixed" one... it failed miserably). And as a wiki admin, I can delete any unnecessary pages later.

I am counting on you to fight the battle for good and/or for AWESOME! Plus, when this is done, everyone can use it, and it'll probably see more use than the Karma template too, which is sad because I think more people should use the Karma one. Anyway, thanks so much!

This is going to be a lot of work, but I will try to fix it as soon as my internet is working correctly again. —Fenhl 18:26, 11 January 2011 (EST)

Karma thanks

Hey man! Thanks for the Karma template ;) I am a big proponent of fixing the Karma page too. Have you seen my comments in the Discussion on the Karma page regarding consolidation of the style of additions to the Karma page? — ReaperCharlie 15:03, 1 October 2010 (PDT)
