Qwerty nation Edit

Qwerty nation is pretty much the same as Rogal Dorn except just an infobox, so I recommend merging the infobox content into Rogal Dorn and making Qwerty nation a redirect (replace content with: #REDIRECT [[Rogal Dorn]]). Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  20:29, Wednesday, 22 September 2010 (ET)

this was my first wiki edit. i was more or less getting used to what to do and how to type in wiki format.--RogalDorn (talk • contribs) 02:45, September 23, 2010 (UTC) Rogal Dorn

Okay. If you want to test things, you can create a page such as User:RogalDorn/sandbox and do so there. Here are a few tips from what I fixed on your user page:
  • Any link to a page on this wiki can be done using the internal link syntax. For links that aren't just a page or section, you can use {{fullurl:}}, which I can explain more if needed.
  • For external links, just put a space between the url and the text to display; putting a pipe will make the link not work.
  • You don't need to use underscores; the wiki puts them in automatically.
  • If you want to link to the page a file is on without showing the image itself, you can put a colon before it, like this: [[:File:Recruitercorpsgold.png]] --> File:Recruitercorpsgold.png.
  • It looked like you were skipping from level 2 headings to level 4 headings. You only need to go one step at a time (i.e. add one equals sign to each side for each level down).

Hope this helped, and feel free to ask if you have any questions. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  10:42, Thursday, 23 September 2010 (ET)

thank you so much you've been a tremendous help to me. i appreciate it. RogalDorn (talk • contribs) 14:50, September 23, 2010 (UTC)
Hey Bobo, I've finally started expanding my nations page with some RP, I've got a ton of work to do though. Sooo many damn ideas floating around. Rogal DornTalkqwerty nation January 31, 2011 (ET)

Multiple Edits Edit

If you are making multiple changes to a page, please try to do it in as few edits as possible. Making tons of small edits clogs up lists of changes and makes it harder to look through the page history. Happy editing, Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  09:45, Friday, 24 September 2010 (ET)

oh is that what the "minor edit" button is for? so it won't show up on that page? RogalDorn (talk • contribs) 08:36, September 27, 2010 (UTC)

No, it still shows up. Minor edits are used to indicate that a change was superficial and does not need to be reviewed (see WP:MINOR). It's not as important here because this wiki is a lot smaller, but it is still useful for the same purpose. There are settings in Special:Preferences to hide minor edits from Recent Changes pages, so they are still useful, but they will not be hidden from the page history.

Re: clear Edit

It makes whatever is below it display below all content above it. I used it on that page to make sure the Occupations heading was underneath the images, because previously the header was in the place the code put it in but the table was pushed down by the images. It's not necessary anymore since you put the images above the relevant text, so everything is in order now. (See also {{clearleft}} and {{clearright}}, which put the content below them below everything floated left or right, respectively, above them.)

I'd just like to point out that I love {{clear}} Bobo Rogal DornTalkqwerty nation January 31, 2011 (ET)

Noinclude/comments Edit

You don't need to use noinclude and comment tags (<!-- -->) together. Just use comment tags to make things visible in the code but not when viewing the page. If you were basing that on what I did on the dogtags template, I only used noinclude there because it's a template. The comment wouldn't show up anyway unless the template was substituted, though. Noinclude just makes the stuff inside it not show up when a page is transcluded (which is usually indicated by {{ }} as in templates). Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  18:14, Friday, 31 December 2010 (ET)

Gotcha that makes sense Bobo. I did indeed get the "no include" tags due to the dog tags page. What are the "comment" tags if you don't mind me asking. i don't believe i've seen those around.RogalDorn (talk • contribs) 07:13, January 1, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry for being unclear, these are what I called comment tags: <!-- --> Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  16:28, Saturday, 1 January 2011 (ET)
