Category talk:Player Characters
Ok, I need some help from an advanced wiki guru. How do we sort the list by the characters name and not User?
This will make the directory useless.
- I tweaked one category so it sorts by 'name' --Hinney 15:14, 17 April 2007 (PDT)
Sweet! Thanks so much!
What do we feel about adding a American and European player catergory? I think it would be a nice asset. Or am i getting carried away with category use? --Blakborn 03:25, 26 April 2007 (PDT)
- My first thought was "Yes!", my second was, isn't that covered by the server category anyway? Also, could it be automatically generated from the server category? DancesInTrees 03:36, 26 April 2007 (PDT)
- Well I was looking for European players and could not find any. So I started looking for european servers and could not see a clear difference between US and EU server names. Thats how I got to starting the new category.--Blakborn 09:47, 27 April 2007 (PDT)
Create Page Test
Will this help a bit? It should at least auto-create the page and insert the template ready to be filled out.
<createarticle> type=createarticle usersubpage=true preload=Template:PC preload editintro=Template:PC instruction buttonlabel=Create width=20 </createarticle>
I need to find a way to get this extension insert the wiki user name automatically that way only the Player Character names needs to be entered. --Hinney 22:57, 20 April 2007 (PDT)
- Brilliant. And stop looking in my brain. I was just thinking about this the other day. I am also going to tackle another look for the template. Maybe something more along the lines of wikipedias Musician template or something. --Ealdor 17:20, 23 April 2007 (PDT)
- Ok i hacked the extension... first two lines in the <createarticle> wiki code are required. Have fun with it. --Hinney 21:53, 23 April 2007 (PDT)
- WOW, just WOW. Very nice work Hinney. I will get it implemented and spread the word. I also updated the template. --Ealdor 22:01, 23 April 2007 (PDT)
seems to be a bug with the < news > extension no showing the 5 latest new characters --Hinney 01:03, 26 April 2007 (PDT)
- it does show them, but it also shows new subcategories like <serve> Characters including main page into this category and showing just a bullet with no text in the table... --Xander 11:25, 26 April 2007 (PDT)
Additions to the Profile
Is it possible to add eye color and birthday to the physical description, I think it would add to nice fatures and then you can stratch the physical description next which doubles up. -Baraphor 05:42, 26 April 2007 (PDT)
maybe add characterplanet.com as an option for creating character profiles?
I have my profile already listed there and it's pretty easy to do. Just a suggestion.
- characterplanet.com is a social networking site like myspace where these character pages are more geared for roleplaying or just sharing information about your toons --Hinney 15:25, 28 April 2007 (PDT)
Would it be better if we sorted by Player Character Name (aka subpagename) instead of the actual page name? --Hinney 18:28, 14 June 2007 (PDT)
