Hey I'm a bit new to some sourcing, so i was wondering which page directs me to the 'parent tab template' as i can't seem to find it. To be more accurate, I mean to say at some of the top of pages, where it shows 'main page| Quotes | Gallery' as i would like to learn how to source code it. Thanks.
ok, well i found it. But i would like to use it on a wikia I'm working on, so now i'm confused how to do that since the template thing keeps messing up when i try to do that. Could i have some help on this thanks.
Hey! Thanks for the welcome! I Hope that I can make a difference here in Harvest moon wiki, and I really Love the games! I'm trying to understand some things on posts that are a little different from what I remember from playing, and I'm starting with little changes.
Hey there, hon. I'm starting to feel a lot like my old self and I really want to get back into playing these games and ediitng the wikia for them. I know that StH and HoLV need most of the work, but if you see anything about MM that might need to be fixed, I'll be happy to do that!
I've also been meaning to bring up events in StH. Since there are a lot of characters that play a minor part in some, but a major part in their own path, would it make more sense to put a link the page with their minor path? Like, Kurt starts off the Azure Swallowtail, but it's purely a Lyla event. So, instead of listing all the steps on Kurt's AND Lyla's, we could just link it on Kurt's? Does that make sense? The explaination sounded better in my head.
Hmm. The steps maybe did sound better in your head. :P Been awhile since I played and I know I didn't finish writing descriptions for all the event paths like I maybe should have. >w<
Maybe do a page up how you're thinking, and then show me? We can always revert it if it doesn't look how you wanted/if it's not a change we want to go with. Do you mean only list Kurt's step for the Azure Swallowtail on his page but then show all steps on Lyla's page or something?
Oh, don't fret, sweetie! I've been obsessively trying to get the Fishy Story ending. Curse this fish and it only wanting to show up during the full moon.
However, I believe I once did a sample on Gwen's StH page? Here's the comparison when I tried it all the way in March.
What I mean to say is that instead of having the entire list of an event path that a character only has a minor role in, we simply link it to the character who has the majority in it. Now, I know Gwen is a bad example for it, since she does play a big role in the Horse Race event path, but she also has her own unique path that's all her.
I feel like that this would make it look neater in terms of listing the events and what to do/describe. It could get very lengthy and, to put it bluntly, unattractive to have a long list of two events and what happens in both of them.
I noticed you removed subheadings in your edits and I'm curious why. I think having them on is more practical since people don't have to scroll down and just click on the part they needed on Table of Content (e.g. Yellow Heart event instead of clicking to Heart event and then scroll down). That's how I usuallly did anyway. Pretty handy stuff.
Oh, and I apologize if I "spammed" the activity log lately. I'm trying to sort categories and there are many duplicate categories like Characters & NPCs (which essentially are the same anyway).
Nah, I saw your edits. They're fine. Don't worry about "spamming" it. As long as the edits are consistant and well done, it doesn't really matter.
I think incredibly long sub headings on a page's contents index make it ugly as heeeell. Plus, I think they make things look much more disorganized rather than organized. Aesthetically, I don't like it at all, and I've gotten so use to just clicking on the headings and being able to find what I want with ease, if its organized well enough. I've also worked really hard on the FoMT pages and the AP pages, both of which I've done in this style. Since I started with those and liked the way it looked, I followed suit with other pages for the sake of consistancy across the wikia.
Most people around here have done small edits, or just copy and pasted entire heart events on to pages.. so I'm usually the one who fixes it all, so that's just how I've always done it. *shrugs* If I get the chance to actually change the heart events on the GrB (and other pages), it should look something like what's on this page. Does that managable as an end result?
I see. I've never seen wiki using lines to separate content like what you did though. I'm used to subheadings since they are, well, convenient and I basically followed Wikipedia's style, so I initially thought it seemed out of place. I've changed some of the lines to subheadings though. Should I change them back?
I think that would be best for now if you wouldn't mind changing it back. Just because it sort of the majority of what is used on finished work and what will hopefully be used in the future. I see where you're coming from though, it is sort of the norm, I suppose, but it doesnt hurt to be different. :)
This wiki's categories are really disorganized. There are too many redundant categories. If you don't mind, may I help cleaning them up?
Also, if you don't mind, can you please remove unnecessary categories in this user's blog page? I think it's best if categories are reserved for wiki articles and templates only. Having categories on user blogs and images make it look messy.
Blogs are always templated as "blog posts" by default, but any other category probably doesn't need to be on blog entries. I've gone through and tried (my very best over the past few years) to categorize all images on this wikia (as it helps keep track of duplicates poor image naming and can make things easier to find) so taking categories off of images would be counter productive to all the hard work I put in.:(
But otherwise, feel free to remove categories from other pages. We have taken out redundant categories in the past such as "male", "female", "bachelor", "bachelorette", "child" and "villager". But, categories do pop up from time to time that don't necessarily need to be there. It is a lot of work to remove categories with a lot of pages it in it, but I can help you if need be.
Edit: Removed the uneccessary categories from the blog post. Will also get on working through deleting categories/pages that have been marked for deletion. Thank you. :)
