Thanks for offering your assistance SgtKlaos, I'll gladly accept your offer. Just please keep edits to the discussion page for now, since it is still a user page and not yet a public guide. I am open to suggestions but for now I want to finish what I set out to do for now, and if I deem something to be unnecessary in the final before release I'll gladly remove it then. Please assist as much as you would desire, I really appreciate any help :) -- ❤Kalilla❤ 20:11, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Mother wiki?[edit source]

WTF are you talking about? Please don't create templates unless you can demonstrate the need/use for them. Thanks. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 13:42, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

I was referring to Wikipedia (who, I thought, was the first wiki). And I was using the See also template to link the two related pages: Explosive Consumables and Nonexplosive Consumables. Is it not helpful to provide quick navigation to related topics? (And the Rellink template was required for successful implementation of the See also template.) ~SgtKlaos(T/C) 13:51, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
Wikipedia is not the first wiki, and no, the templates are not useful, you will see that the standard for see also references is a second level header. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 13:53, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
Please forgive my ignorance. I'm not a very experienced editor and I didn't notice there was an established standard for see also. Can you point me to where I will see what the other standards are? ~SgtKlaos(T/C) 14:03, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
And what's up with sorting these two pages as Weapon items? They're not individual item pages, they summarize a group. Shouldn't the be separate? ~SgtKlaos(T/C) 14:09, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
Standards are set by what's happening throughout the wiki... had you searched See also, you would have seen how it's listed on many pages.. thus setting the standard. As for the categorization... I don't really think those pages belong in weapon items at all.. but rather in a list category... but the category tree has gotten so messed up it's going to need a thorough clean up that I just don't have time currently to deal with. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 14:12, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
Sorry if I'm coming off crabby... I just popped on to check rc and saw some things that just didn't compute. Also, if you do find a need for a template, and you choose to import it from somewhere else, you have to provide proper attribution by listing the exact url it was copied from in the edit summary in order to meet the copyright requirements. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 14:16, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for explaining that (and I've come to expect your crabbiness - I'm sure you find lots of reasons to pull your hair out). I'll keep the copyright requirements in mind. I do appreciate clean formatting, though, and I'm interested in seeking a consensus about the smaller See also. Since there's no existing template, I'll posit the idea on the Community Portal talk page. Since I'm on the topic of clean formatting, I hope you don't mind if shrink my sig (yours just looks pro). ~SgtKlaos(T/C) 14:43, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
