That's what I had in mind. That way when someone clicks on Discussion it's like BAM right there. Highlighted in yellow for which magnitude of naming we have achieved. That way we know right off if a suggestion is even worthy of being presented or not. :) --Mish(Talk) 20:48, 16 November 2007 (EST)

  • Good, I'm glad it works. We could even add a variable for things like quotes or which episode it comes from, or a link to the secondary source. I personally think that's probably better suited towards the discussion area, but if we wanted to, we could expand this template very easily. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:50, 16 November 2007 (EST)
    • I'm not familiar with the Wiki markup or I would be happy to do it myself. I think it would be good to be able to cite those things in the table as well. Maybe just one example of where it was used or something.--Mish(Talk) 20:53, 16 November 2007 (EST)
      • I'll add an option at the bottom for a very open-ended source explanation. Incidentally, the wiki code I used is probably not the best...I could have used html table code (<TR>, <TD>, etc.), but I was just too lazy, so I used {{pipe}} instead. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:02, 16 November 2007 (EST)
      • Cool template, Ryan. Nicely made!--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:57, 16 November 2007 (EST)


I named the explanation of source variable to avoid the nasty = problem breaking it. Alot of people may not know &#61 is the valid replacement for an = operator.--Mish(Talk) 13:08, 17 November 2007 (EST)

  • It's actually &#61; (with a semicolon in the end). But adding the eos= variable doesn't change anything when it comes to adding links, it only makes adding the explanation that much more bulky and cumbersome. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:37, 17 November 2007 (EST)
    • Actually, it might. I think the template ignores equals signs after the first one (which is why switch: has the #default = option, for cases where the default contains an equals sign) until it encounters a pipe.--Hardvice (talk) 15:09, 17 November 2007 (EST)
      • Ah, yeah, you're right. Looking at the templates in use, the links can have equal signs now. Got it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:13, 17 November 2007 (EST)
        • I went ahead and made eos default to {{{2}}}. It'll work fine without eos= unless there's an equals sign. No need to document it in the usage, since it's just a lazycatcher.--Hardvice (talk) 03:05, 19 November 2007 (EST)
  • I like the lower "Sources" box. Sometimes these things just need a womans touch! :) --Mish(Talk) 16:33, 17 November 2007 (EST)
    • I do too...Who exactly would the woan in question be? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:12, 17 November 2007 (EST)
      • I was just pokin' fun at Dave... --Mish(Talk) 17:15, 17 November 2007 (EST)
        • Oh, well if that's the case, then by all means carry on. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:18, 17 November 2007 (EST)
        • Yo mama needs a woman's touch. :) --Hardvice (talk) 17:34, 17 November 2007 (EST)

Heroes: Survival

Note--Heroes: Survival is only considered a secondary source if the character is featured in a source written by somebody on the Heroes team. For instance, since Store was featured in an iStory, his pertinent information on H:S can be used as a secondary source. Ditto the faction Unity. If writers start using the Heroes: Survival platform to release official content (which I believe is the plan for the future), then the information used there can be considered part of the Heroes Evolutions content. But everything else there should be considered fan-created. Just wanted to clarify. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:01, 20 September 2009 (EDT)
