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. :)
Hey! Thanks for cleaning up after me haha...I'm still learning my way around Wikia and there's still a ton I don't know yet.
Anyway, how do you do the table edits (like on the Accessory Store page)? If I make any more tables I'd like to be able to make those edits. This way you wouldn't have to take the time to go through and update. Thanks!
You can create a page for it. On the right hand corner there is a button named "contribute". Select 'add a page' from the drop down. Name the page and you will be prompted to add the information in and create it.
I would suggest looking at the source mode of a page to see how things are laid out. Source mode color codes certain things so you can see how templates and links look.
For links, you have to put the page name in brackets that you'd like to link to. Like so:
[[Harvest Moon: Animal Parade]]
Anything in brackets will link to a page. If the link is green, it means that the page exists on the wikia and you can click to visit that page. If you put something in brackets and the link is red, it means that it links to a non existent page.
Goodness, I didn't expect to come to you again so soon! However, I've been meaning to ask you something. Now, when I was going around the HoLV character to add in the pictures of their information (like their height, weight, dislikes, etc.) I noticed that things are a bit confusing. Now, there's a page linking to the Sprites (HoLV) HoLV Sprites but there's also one for Nic seperately but not the other two. I was wondering about which one you would prefer. The minute I know, the minute I can fix it all up.
