In post 370, Kison wrote:Just taking a quick look at wgeurts's template, it seems like we should be able to have a page where we can dump everyone's signup date, right?

Like, it looks like this Near-Vanilla setup page is pulling historical data from this Open database.

I would think that if that is possible, we could do something similar where we have a page with username/user ID/join data.

How long would it take a browser to load a page considering it would have to check whether or not each individual user is the one the template wants on this page or not?
If it's too long the script I mentioned above may work easier.

Ok, so we'll probably have to do this using AJAX, hitting a URL on the forum to get the data by username. Let me think about how to set that up.

What if we switched positions of the 'Getting Started' section and the 'Featured Role'? Then it is also at the top and we don't have to worry about scrolling fatigue keeping people from reading that far down.

Ahhh, much better... hard to miss now, just like it should be. *nods head with satisfaction*

Alright, I just made my to-do list even more ambitious yet again. Sneak peak of the new way I'm going to be organising the wiki whilst making it easier to find information for visitors: Portal:Content.

You (who whoever has access to change things; you need higher than admin-level access) should probably make Portal: a real namespace if you're doing that. At the moment, it's just an article page whose name starts with "Portal:".

I'm aware of that, though it isn't all to important right now.

Click on the "wiki" link under your username on the forum. Log into the wiki, if you haven't already (username and password are the same as on the forum). Then you should have an edit box via which you can edit it.

Quickly dumping here some to-do stuff:
-Move all pages in Category "Royal Mafia"to "Royal Setups"
-Fix the SetupFix thingy
-Finish the new navigation for Setups
-Add a work-in-progress bar for the new navigation system
-Nuke the old Setups categories.

You must first log in to wiki (you probably already have an account there if you registered in MS)
Search your name at the top right search engine, do enter and you should probably find "Create the page "momo" on this wiki!"

Could you both try again?

Looks like the upgrade partially broke our older version of the authorization plugin. I was able to fix it. Unfortunately I can't fully upgrade the plugin because it looks like they don't support phpBB 3.0.x anymore. Guess we should work on upgrading the board next.

In terms of those portals: the "Information for Wiki-Contributors" should probably go on the Talk page, as that's what it's for.

In other news, Template:RolePM could do with a lot of changes to allow it to assemble roles from pieces, e.g. in setups with unusual win conditions, alignment-flipped roles, and the like. At present, basically everything needs to be set to custom. I don't have time to change that right now, but if I end up having time to change it later, is it something that would be worth taking a look at?

It has a custom way of formatting them but if you mean take pieces of separate roles and add them together then an edit would be worth it I guess, a lot of work though.
