It has been mentioned that it might be better to remove inaccurate advice from mainspace, rather than keeping it.
This would apply probably to most pre-update Dervish advice, and presumably lots of other hints and tips, probably on other professions as well. The affected pages would be guides (e.g. profession guides) and advice on other pages (e.g. notes on skill pages). What else is affected by rising inaccuracy?
Should we delete those pages and notes, or keep them? We could add "out of date" notices to them.
Should we keep backups? For every page, there's a more current one on , and probably on as well, so we don't really have to.
Please post your opinion in the comments so we can decide as a community on what to do.Read more >
Should we announce the fictional announcement on the mainpage with a header or byline (other than the link at the bottom), or not?

My personal opinion is that it sort of spoils the joke if we do; that we're not really misleading because we don't claim that it's a login announcement at all. What do you think? (And should we have a poll on this?)
In my quest to eliminate green puzzle pieces in the RTE, I've stumbled on pages like User:Skuld/Sig. There are 243 users with signature templates that I know of (= pages starting with User: and ending in sig or Sig or s/Signature).
- If I substitute these, pages get lots of wikicode dumped on them, but the RTE would probably hide that. For most signatures, anyway.
- I could replace them with plain links to the person's userpage (like the default for new accounts), but that would change their signatures.
This problem gets easier, but does not go away, with the purge of old User talk: pages, because these templates are used elsewhere as well. (Of course I'd like to delete old talk everywhere, but I fear that's not going to get consensus.)

PanSola once made a landscape format skillbox, see e.g. Shield Stance landscape vs. Shield Stance. This looks pretty good now. Do we want to adopt that format?

Actually, we're using that format (or similar) on the quick references (QR).
It's St Patrick's Day, and we're green! This is the test of what we've been trying to achieve over the past month: to make our articles independent of the underlying wiki theme. I changed the Theme using Special:ThemeDesigner, and copied a few colors to MediaWiki:Wikia.css from the resulting .css , and that was it. If you find pages with colors that look off, please report them here.
Oh, and if you have a better suggestion for the background, I'm listening. ;-)Read more >
