Something I want to touch upon. So, the Style Guide states that all in-universe articles are to be in past tense, and present tense is for out-of-universe articles, but I noticed there are many inconsistancies with this between several pages on the wiki (specifically - jobs, power-ups, loot/treasures).
I already know we use past tense to describe past events and deceased characters, and present tense for currently existing locations and alive characters, but I would like further clarification as to how this applies to missions, power-ups and loot/treasures as well. I'd really appreciate it!
Jobs should be written in past tense (like a story, sort of), treasure and loot should be past tense in describing what episode, etc. (the whateverwas a treasure in episode...), but descriptions of treasures can be done present tense (it is a purple...). Since with the location of the treasure we're trying to guide the reader, that should be done like the walkthroughs, so use that sort of language. Power-ups should be done in present tense, excepting any history, which should be past tense, so explaining the inventor of the power-up, etc.
Hopefully that makes sense, I'm pretty tired haha.
First and foremost, this behavior is not ok. Repeatedly asking for favors while offering very little of your own contributions is not only annoying, but also extremely impolite. As you may have noticed, the script pages are freely editable by anyone, meaning that anyone, including you, can contribute to those pages. Instead of constantly relying and insisting on others to complete the work, I highly suggest that you help to contribute to these pages. It can be something simple such as watching the desired episode on YouTube and noting the dialogue that is spoken in that video. Any contributions are welcome, but persistent messages like these are not. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.
Please cease this kind of behavior immediately. The script pages will be done when they're done, and they'll only be done faster if you help contribute instead of constantly asking others to do it for you. If you need help figuring out how to edit an article, there's a wonderful tutorial here.
Yeah... and just so you know, Episodes 5 and 6 have already been fully completed.
And to answer your question about the level images, I'm currently in the process of providing images and/or galleries for all of the job pages for each game, but it will take a long time.
Can you complete Sly 3's episode 3, and can you finish Hidden Flight Roster, Cooper Hangar Defense, ACES Semifinals, Giant Wolf Massacre, Beauty and the Beast and OP: Turbo Dominant Eagle? And can you complete Sly 3's episode 4 to finish off Battery of Peril and OP: Wedding Crasher? Then complete the last of the bits of Sly 3, okay?
Your enthusiasm is quite something. If you want to see them completed, you could always do them yourself. It would be greatly appreciated.
Like I said previously, real life gets in the way a lot and I don't have as much time to do wiki things as I used to. I have a job and other engagements. If I were to do it, it would have to be on a day where I don't work, and that day would also need to be free of other more important things. I don't know when that will happen.
Yeah, it'll all get done eventually, don't worry. Just try to be patient. After all, this is a collaborative effort; so it won't be just me trying to fill out the scripts. Work as big as this takes a lot of time... but it will get done.
Are you ready to complete Sly 3's episode 3, and can you finish Hidden Flight Roster, Cooper Hangar Defense, ACES Semifinals, Giant Wolf Massacre, Beauty and the Beast and OP: Turbo Dominant Eagle? And can you complete Sly 3's episode 4 to finish off Battery of Peril and OP: Wedding Crasher? Can you complete the last of the bits of Sly 3, okay?
As for how to get images, usually it's through capturing footage directly from the console. However, it can also be done by taking a screencap of a YouTube video. I personally dig around on YouTube for what I want, and when I find it, I use the website http://youtubescreenshot.com and get the images that way.
Thank you. One more thing: when uploading an image from a YouTube screenshot, would the screenshot fall under fair use, a screenshot from a game, or something else? In case I would need to provide copyright.
Hello. I am applying for the administrator position. I have a lot of experience editing Wikis and enforcing rules. I edit Wikipedia a lot, where I deal with a lot of trolls. Also, when my kids were in elementary school, I spent a year working as a lunch/recess monitor. I have the confidence that I can handle the administrator position. Thank you for reading my request.
While I and the other admins are grateful that you are so willing to help out, users are given admin access on a per-need basis. At the moment, with you only having one edit here (this message) and with very little currently happening on the wiki, the three admins that are currently active are plenty for handling any situations that may arise.
Admins are users who have contributed to the wiki that have been granted a few extra resources for helping out; they are however not any more important than any other user. I would highly suggest reading through this page to learn about what role admins serve.
All that being said, it's not impossible that we'll need admins in the future; in fact, we definitely will! Usually users that are granted admin access have, as previously stated, a relatively large amount of quality edits under their belt to show others that they mean business and know what they're talking about. So while we don't need any new admins now, if you stick around and make sure to create quality contributions, you'll definitely be considered for adminship when that time arises.
I'm a admin from the LBP wiki and a few others (i won't list them all). I was wondering if you'd be interested in improving your community message section to look like those on the wiki's i'm admin for.
I could set one up in my blog area for you so all you have to do is copy it into the community message section. I'll just need a list of affiliates, links and word marks and names of your main admins.
(Use a desktop browser and scroll to community message)
Just to let you know i manage to find the information i needed. you can find the template here
I took a guess at the information you would use in the template. it may be missing a few links. opening up the page classic editor - source mode, then copying the contents and pasting it into the community message section should work.
It may appear wide on the blog page and community corner, but it will auto adjust to fit on the wiki activity page. feel free to contact me if you need help.
I removed unnecessary information, like the residents, because that is mentioned already. I also removed empty sections because, well, they are empty and they can be created when they have content (gallery, trivia, etc.).
Captions in infoboxes are not a place to put information that should be found within the article, and I renamed the page because "home" is a more fitting word than "residence."
And lastly, you created the page, but you don't own it. If there is a page on the wiki, anyone is allowed, and in fact encouraged, to edit it if they can make it better.
oh and one more thing, if possible, can you try and help me find more information about Sly Cooper's past, i have been gathering evidence on what happened at the Cooper home but there isn't enough, if you could help me find more info, i woud appreciate it very much.
