Tell me how much I rock below

  • 'Cause you know you want to


  • Hi Trecord, and welcome to Heroes Wiki! Your sig is cool, but it was messing up some talk pages cause it was missing a couple closing span tags. I fixed that, but you should also set your preferences to insert your template instead of substitute it, as multi-line signatures like yours can quickly spam a talk page, making it difficult to edit.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:16, 10 November 2007 (EST)
  • Thanks Miami, what's the best way for me to fix it? Like, step by step? (I'm a wiki noob, if you can't tell!:) --TRECORD-- Talk/Contrib 00:42, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • Click on "My preferences", then in your "User profile" under where it says "Nickname" put {{User:Trecord/sig}} and click "Save" to save your preferences. Then, the next time you save a comment, only the template should be included. Make sure you don't have a substitution (anything with "subst:") in your nickname field.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:58, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • Well, let's see if it worked -----> --TRECORD-- Talk/Contrib 01:11, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • Hmm, I updated my preferences, but it's still giving all the tags and stuff in the signature. I did remove the "subst:" from it, however. --TRECORD-- Talk/Contrib 01:12, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • What you can do is make a second page, like User:Trecord/autosig, and the content on it is simply {{User:Trecord/sig}}. Then in preferences, use the autosig as the template instead of the sig page. That will fix it. The reason is mediawiki automatically uses a subst: in front of templates. For a reference, look at User:Baldbobbo/sig versus User:Baldbobbo/autosig. Hope that helps.--Bob (talk) 01:48, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • Well, here's a first shot. Let's hope it works! --{{SUBST:{User:Trecord/autosig}} 01:58, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • Hmm, no dice. Am I doing something incorrect? --TRECORD-- Talk/Contrib 02:00, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • Hmm, for some odd reason it worked the second time. Oh well! --TRECORD-- Talk/Contrib 02:00, 10 November 2007 (EST)
      • Close. Just in your preferences, type verbatim {{User:Trecord/autosig}}. It'll automatically add the subst in and do the hard stuff.--Bob (talk) 02:00, 10 November 2007 (EST)
        • You forgot to put the second {. The cool thing is you only have to edit your sig page if you want to make changes, and all your signatures that use the template will automatically update. Like mine, I have a bunch saved for color schemes.--Bob (talk) 02:01, 10 November 2007 (EST)
          • Ah, right. Thanks, Bob. I forgot about the autosig part.--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:02, 10 November 2007 (EST)

Spoiler stuff

  • Hi there, just wanted to make sure there are no hard feelings going on here. I basically felt I should explain myself. As far as I'm concerned, the spoiler pages are for little spoilers - casting calls, details revealed by Kristin, for example, or other such things, like Michael Ausiello, or Spoilerfix. I have never seen a full episodic summary put up like that. The problem was that there was no warning, of any kind, and, as soon as I read the first line, I realised that this wasn't something I want to read. I do agree with you that there is some people who would love this sort of stuff, but I believed that the majority would not want it in such plain sight. Does that make sense?--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  03:57, 10 November 2007 (EST)
  • No hard feelings taken. I tried to make sure it stayed on the spoiler pages, and not the main page for the upcoming episode. I've also since updated the page to put up the red spoilers banner, just to wear the belt with the suspenders. Also, I didn't "put it straight back" as suggested - I contacted the User:Admin first to get his verdict, then only updated after he gave the go ahead. Also, the page name is Spoiler talk: Powerless, indicating even from the recent changes page this update is a spoiler. I understand it's more detailed than most, but I just credit it to my good searching ability ;) For example, if you don't want to see Nathan shortly after the nuclear blast, don't view page 2 of the TV Guide article appearing on November 12. Thanks for your input, though. I believe there is a place on here for detailed spoiler information, so long as it's clearly marked as such. If you can think of any additional steps I can take to firewall spoiler information off from the main content, beyond limiting it to spoiler pages and marking the pages with the spoiler tag, please let me know. Thanks! (p.s.: now back to watching Episode 4 of Journeyman) --TRECORD-- Talk/Contrib 04:12, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • Yeah, I read your discussion with Admin; I think the problem there was that he more-than-likely verified it thinking it was one of the aforementioned little spoilers - he said he hadn't read it. But hey, it doesn't bother me too much. I think that we should move the discussion on Spoiler talk:Powerless above the spoiler itself, and then put a note saying 'Scroll down for major spoiler' or something like that. *shrugs* Thanks anyway - I'm glad you took it so well! I had images of a row developing, and I didn't want that! :D--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  04:25, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • Ah, good, the red warning's now at the top. A wiki thowdown, huh? Hehe, that'd be great if all this wasn't such serious business. --TRECORD-- Talk/Contrib 04:30, 10 November 2007 (EST)
