  • Spoiler alert, read source to read in full

    • Hey, I'm thinking we should find a time to get on that chat and discuss making policies. I discovered yesterday that Gas created templates for certain citations with specific formatting, which means that there are already guidelines/rules in place for editing that we should probably put to text and formalize.

      Also, it looks like you're creating a template to have spoilers show up in red text. So we should probably discuss policy on spoilers.

    • nah, what I'm trying to do is to make it so that spoilers show up underlined but without text but it isn't working

    • So you'd want to have spoilers allowed on the wiki as long as the information is optional to the user/protected? That would be difficult to regulate, if this show picks up the same kind of following that RWBY did. Fans would just jump in and add stuff without stopping to think about formatting.

    • I was thinking more along the lines of so that YouTube members don't get spoiled (like how the RWBY wiki just updates when the episode is for free members (I think)) but you do have a point, though I do think it would be good to have something like this for example, if a trailer is released, because there are always some people who don't want to watch the trailers so it would let them be active on the wiki without as much as a risk of being spoiled

    • YouTube members? I guess I'm not following what you mean.

      We could just not update until it's available for free members. Not that I'm going to keep you from trying to figure out your spoiler text. ^.^

    • Youtube members, as in the people who don't watch it through the rt site but youtube, or don't have an rt account

    • My first reaction to this was "So why would they be visiting the wiki if they wait to watch it on YouTube?" Then I caught up with what you were saying. Brain = slow lately.

      Trailers seems a pretty extreme kind of spoiler. If they don't want to watch the trailer, then they don't have to go to its page and press play if/when the video is loaded.

      Of course, at this point we're conjecturing a fanbase after season one is complete. Right now an actual trailer would be awesome and pretty much the only thing in existence.

    • well i was thinking we could still update pages with trailers and the new info we get from them but use the spoiler thing (but not for the trailers coming up to release of the first season) that way people can still find the info on the pages but people who don't want to watch the trailers.

      And yes, I am using this as more of a after season/volume/whatever 1 idea

    • Cool, let's see if it works.

        Loading editor
    • Yup

    • I think i'm just going to go with how i have it now

    • Which is what? To tell people to read the source in full? Hmm. Is your plan now to put the text under visibility:hidden? Also, wouldn't that encourage accidental edits if people have to go in to edit source mode in order to read the whole article? (Assuming, of course, that we're not locking the pages.) Most users default to the Visual editor anyway and don't understand how to switch to or even read source. Perhaps I'm not understanding your intent correctly?

        Loading editor
    • Well with what I have now, this is all that works, I'll still try but at least we have a place holder

        Loading editor
    • so, anything else that you want to discuss?

        Loading editor
    • I suggested discussing and creating policies, since the founder set up some specific citation templates which I have since mimicked. Perhaps we need to discuss one for badge hunting, too?

        Loading editor
    • That would be good, we should also make it easier to find all of the wikis templates, I tried to make a spoiler warning template but it turned out there was already one

    • wait there are new character announcements?!

    • Steven, you literally added a space one day, and answered a question already answered another day. Do genuine work for your daily contributions.

    • As far as the template thing goes... mehhh, you're right. They aren't showing up under the categories. Only the default ones are. I'll look into it a bit more in depth at another point.

      Considering that the most recent news article formats gen:LOCK like Gen:Lock, I'm beginning to wonder if we will need to change how we do it on the wiki. For now, though, let's keep it as is and wait for launch/more direct information releases.

    • Well the space was needed because auto correct changed the link address ( seriously they autocorrect Rooster Teeth to roosterteeth) and I thought it would would be good to answer as they didn't seem to know, also weren't they all on the same day?

      Maybe a template hub page would be useful? Also I think we should keep it gen:LOCK for now, see how it goes

        Loading editor
    • Also do you think we should try to get on chat some time to discuss everything?

        Loading editor
    • Yup, I do.

    • you on tomorrow? or better, when are you most likely going to be on?

    • @Steven you might want to make sure your privacy settings allow people to friend you even when they don't share friends or servers with you.
