Finally..

Don't get angry or moan about other peoples utilisation of the Wiki - its a collaborative effort and anyone can edit it, including you. If you spot claring mistakes, feel free to change them.

Be civil, be patient, and report any problems you can't fix yourself.


That would be 'glaring mistakes', yeah?
 
:D
You did ask!
Just a little rough and tumble, Judge man.

WHERE ARE THE PRESENTS?  >:(

I feel misled by that banner. And no, the satisfaction of helping the community is NOT a present. Money, cakes and alcohol are presents.

Personally, I'm looking forward to the entry regarding the population of MC-1.

Not sure about the login loop, when you go back to the wiki try pressing ctrl-f5, or shift-f5 to force a refresh.

I'll take a look at it tomorrow morning, and hopefully I can fix it in a better way.

This sounds brilliant. But until retirement, the older I get the more responsibilities and the less free time. and I don't even have kids!
 :lol:

I will have a go at this one day. I had plenty of wiki practice on Uncyclopaedia back when I had an office job that gave me unrealistic objectives and unlimited internet access, unlike the office job I have now.
STRIKE !!!

Gah, it's hard enough trying to do a blog entry a week! I'll be happy to help out though in those scant few minutes I get to myself each month...

Any chance of there being page counts added to the series templates - eg

http://wiki.2000adonline.com/index.php/A_Bullet_In_The_Head - I'd like to add the total number of pages for each episode...

It's already in there - edit the page and you'll find
Code: [Select]
| Part_1_Pages       =

Part is synonymous with episode.

D'oh. Looks like the import didn't add a prefix to the numbered issues and Progs have overwritten Megs.

I'll see if I can do a batch update of the Megs.

Don't seem to be able to login - just dumps me back here and when I return to the Wiki still need to login.

On Safari if that helps...
