Hi Riley! Thank you for all the work you've been putting into the wiki, and into Daily Pack especially.
I see you've been making some edits to previous vlogs, and adding in the template! While I really like the vlog template, I don't think it's a great idea to add the template to older vlogs. There are thousands of vlogs without the template, and if you add the template randomly in the middle of them, it makes it awkward in terms of continuity to have one vlog page in let's say, 2013 with the template, and for thousands of others before and after it to not have the template.The previous format of editing vlogs works well as it is too!
So unless you intend to add the template into the 2000 odd vlog pages that were written before we got to the June 2017 vlogs, I'd appreciate if you didn't add the template to more of the previous vlogs.
That being said, if you believe that changing all the vlog pages to having the template is worthwhile and possible, feel free to let me know why.
Thanks for your understanding and for your work on the wiki!
Hi Riley! Thanks for your reply! It definitely should be something we work on in the future, if the wiki ever gets enough manpower.
Also, I saw that you're now intending to work on the MalMakes pages. I've recently made a template for MalMakes, which I've applied to "The Dunes". I'm not sure what format I prefer for MalMakes, since without the template, the videos are a lot bigger. Feel free to either stick to the old format for the videos, or use the new template.
Thanks once again!
Hello! Good job on your progress with MalMakes! It's satisfying to see most of the page be blue instead of red.
Just a quick note:
- Please proofread! I realise you tend to forget to change the title of the painting when you make a new page.
- Also please try to watch at the first little bit of each MalMakes painting to see if she explains some of her rationale behind the painting! I think it'd be nice to record down why she made certain choices or what she was inspired by if she mentions them (she doesn't always).
- That's it!
Thank you! You've done great work!
It wasn't me that promoted you (I don't have that power, so it was probably Stephen) but congratulations! You've done a lot for the wiki and it's been great. Feel free to message me if you wanna chat or discuss anything.
I saw that on the todo list was a score spreadsheet for Golf with your Friends.
This is something that I think that I would be able to do, if you don't mind. Could you just specify what sort of thing you were thinking of. I was thinking just a simple:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Total
Stephen Mal Dan Lindsey
(This probably won't display properly but it is 1-9 on the top and names down the side) Then a separate page for each match.
Could you get back to me on this and then I can get started.
Thanks for the question. If this question asking about pure aesthetics (which I think it is), then I'd recommend ditching the yellow and highlighting the winner in some shade of green (like the light green of the infoboxes). Other changes I would make would be to highlight the whole row and to decrease the column width (if that's possible), as well as adding a little sentence saying that the highlighted row represents the winner.
Hope that answers your question!
Just want to say thanks for replying me! That makes a lot of sense.
But I have just tried it on my phone and the hovering is not a problem, because at least on my phone it registers as a click, which opens up the sub-menu until I click away.
That being said, maybe other mobile users have a different experience from me, which would make the page helpful.
Yeah, I just wanted to say that. See you around and good luck with school starting!
