Awesome job Dave.--Bob (talk) 01:54, 10 November 2007 (EST)

  • Thanks. I figured excluding the totals from the table was the answer; it was just a matter of getting the two separate tables to line up and merge. The bottom border is a little thick on IE, and the columns get a bit off at 1024 wide, but otherwise it's perfect.--Hardvice (talk) 02:05, 10 November 2007 (EST)
  • Fixed the low res problem. We could also shrink the headings and that would let us make the data columns slimmer.--Hardvice (talk) 02:07, 10 November 2007 (EST)


Nicely seperated, Hardvice. I just fixed the widths to look correct in IE. How does it look in firefox now?--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:20, 10 November 2007 (EST)

  • The latest IE fixes actually broke it on my screen in all three browsers. The problem is that the captions are too wide. I'll shrink them.--Hardvice (talk) 02:14, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • The averages table is still shorter by a couple pixels in IE, but it's getting there.--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:20, 10 November 2007 (EST)
      • It has to be a font-size issue. It's perfectly aligned in all three on my screen right now between 1024 wide and 1600 wide. My guess is that it's the hyphenated 18-49 year-old that's causing it to glitch.--Hardvice (talk) 02:22, 10 November 2007 (EST)
        • It's that the show/hide tag is extending the airdate field to just slightly larger than it is. Anyways, it's much better than before. I'm using the classic skin, so some things appear larger but that shouldn't offset them. However, I just switched back to monobook to test and it does look okay with monobook's smaller font.--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:26, 10 November 2007 (EST)
          • Weird. Is it not displaying the show tag on a line by itself? In any case, we can widen the first column and that should fix it. Incidentally, it looks OK in Opera, too.--Hardvice (talk) 02:31, 10 November 2007 (EST)
            • Now it's perfect in the classic skin. Thanks! Is it still okay in Opera and Mozilla?--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:35, 10 November 2007 (EST)
              • Yup. Looks good. I centered all the data so it matches the footer and is easier to read. The episode titles look okay I guess, but we can go back and left-align them if they bug anyone.--Hardvice (talk) 02:40, 10 November 2007 (EST)
                • Awesome, the centered titles don't bother me. Already started on Season Two?--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:45, 10 November 2007 (EST)
                  • No. Feel free to do it if you want. Incidentally, is there any value in keeping this in a template, or should we just dump it in the article and delete this?--Hardvice (talk) 03:03, 10 November 2007 (EST)
                    • Ok, I'll tackle Season Two tommorrow. Going to grab some sleep now. As for keeping the template, the only place we use it is on the Ratings article. Season Two is also used on Heroes, but we are using includes to make it work instead of a template. We could probably dump it in the article and delete this, but since this table template is so large it might be a good idea to make it a seperate subpage and rename it to "Nielsen Ratings/Season One".--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:21, 10 November 2007 (EST)
                      • My only real concern with leaving it in a template is the lack of an editlink. That can be rectified, but no guarantees it'll work.--Hardvice (talk) 03:57, 10 November 2007 (EST)
                      • OK, I went ahead and did Season Two. I made them both subpages and adjusted Heroes so it could use the subpage, too.--Hardvice (talk) 04:19, 10 November 2007 (EST)
                        • Nicely done again. I moved that Season Two ratings to below Broadcasts on the Heroes page, so it gets the full width. Otherwise, it wasn't printing the correct width for the averages table.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:21, 10 November 2007 (EST)

Hide function

So I'm not familiar with some of the code used, but is there a way to use the hide function for the massive spoiler on Spoiler talk:Powerless? You don't have to go to the page if you don't, but there's a large amount of text that should be, by default, hidden. It's pretty substantial. I only read it because it was so f'in large.--Bob (talk) 05:16, 10 November 2007 (EST)

  • For future reference, you can just bung it in a table, and assign it class="wikitable collapsible collapsed". It will need to have a header row. I'll grab this one.--Hardvice (talk) 05:21, 10 November 2007 (EST)
