Scrolly box thingy


Add text here

IT'S JUST SO GREAT. ♣ Deliera talk Wiki Ops 21:12, 1 August 2014 (CDT)

So this ( </div></td><td style="width:5px;"></td></tr></table> ) is the code you forgot to put at the bottom of the sandbox . . . to, you know, tell the scroll box to stop being scrolly . . . and all that . . . :D ♣ Deliera talk Wiki Ops 23:20, 2 August 2014 (CDT)
An . . . edit link? . . . I assume you mean a link that'll take you to a specific heading on a page? ♣ Deliera talk Wiki Ops 00:47, 3 August 2014 (CDT)
I was ridiculously confused about what you were going on about for a few seconds, but now I think I understand. You were looking for a totally different thing than what I thought you were looking for! XD ♣ Deliera talk Wiki Ops 00:53, 3 August 2014 (CDT)

Re: Template: KolkFI & Template:LCARS-Sidebar

Those were left out because they weren't part of the original sidebar I based it off of (the one I made for my own pages before I learned all this cool variable-based wiki coding), but they could certainly be added if you'd like them on there. So, if you're wanting to use these Sidebars with that info, I have a question for you: Where would you want that info to show up? Would you want it in the white middle box? in the top section? in the bottom section? I can put it wherever you like. I won't get to it tonight, but I should have time tomorrow afternoon. -Jack of All Treks (talk) 17:35, 7 August 2014 (CDT)

Turns out I did have time tonight, so I added them to the white section. You can see an example on the Template:LCARS-Sidebar page, but it works for both. Hope you like it! -Jack of All Treks (talk) 18:33, 7 August 2014 (CDT)

I know. I was applying a switch to make the ship and character images match the size of the pips so the DS9 ones don't look weird and I mistyped something. It's all set now. -Jack of All Treks (talk) 00:31, 10 August 2014 (CDT)

For the {{Crop}} functionality, I can, now that you ask for it. I'm just trying to figure out how best to do it. Would you want to put in the whole {{Crop|ImageName.png|width|height|vert|horiz|zoom|link}} yourself, or do you want me to try to find someway to simplify that... which may just end up complicating it... ? -James T. Kolk (talk) 08:45, 25 November 2014 (CST)

Okay, I think I have that working properly now. Just put "|ImageCrop = {{Crop..." instead of "|Image = ...". Let me know if it's messed up in any way. =/\= James T. Kolk =/\= (talk) 09:40, 25 November 2014 (CST)


No, it doesn't automatically add itself to all your sims; you'd have to add it to each page individually, sorry. You could put them into whatever order you want, I suppose. I designed it to simplify the nav I'd put on the bottom of my sims before, and I try to put Stardates on the top of my sims when putting them on the wiki so that I can put them into chronological. If you wanted to put them in alphabetical order, you could do that too; it just seems to me that chronological would make the most sense to the reader. -Jack of All Treks (talk) 07:46, 8 August 2014 (CDT)

Absolutely! That's the beauty of all of these templates: you can easily use the same template repeatedly for the same character while reflecting changes in rank, position, ship, etc. between each sim. -Jack of All Treks (talk) 23:53, 9 August 2014 (CDT)
As it stands right now, the sim would have to be on the wiki to work with the nav because the coding for links to outside pages is quite different. I might, theoretically, be able to finagle a way to make it work, but it would be rather complicated and there's no guarantee that the outside link(s) would be or remain reachable to our wiki users, so it would be best to put whatever sims you want saved for posterity onto the wiki. -Jack of All Treks (talk) 18:22, 10 August 2014 (CDT)

Matthew Jemeth Reply

Thanks for the assist! I'll make that correction momentarily.

Matt's not part of the crew yet. He's a PNPC I'm working up to hopefully add to Excalibur's crew shortly, so broken links aren't necessarily a problem. Still, good to fix it as I go!

Thanks again!

Face List update for September

Please make sure that your ships Face Listing is updated and concurrent with your crews current roster. The FL should only feature crew members with character avatars. :D If you need assistance, don't hesitate to let me know!

Don't fret! I handled it (one of the perks of having about four wiki-capable officers on one ship . . .) - I put the message on your wall in case you wanted to go over the Garuda's listing in case I made a hilarious mistake. ♣ Deliera talk Vice Chief of Wiki Ops 04:35, 8 September 2014 (CDT)

ribbons rack

You forgot the 1. Every ribbon needs to have the number of times awarded because the template is paying attention to the order of the variables when building the rack:

First Contact Cadet Pips

Hey, I uploaded the Cadet 2nd-4th class pips in Red, Gold, and Blue. Sorry it took so long. Let me know if you need any others.... That particular set actually even has Cadet half-pips and can have anything from just one lone half-pip to five full pips for cadets, though I wouldn't know what to call those... -James T.
