  • when you went through your recent changes to the background you ended up reverting to a with a glaring white band at the bottom.  It makes for such a terrible viewing experience on high resolution displays.

  • Hi Mystic, I can't edit myself so just wanted to point out, need to add overflow:hidden; to the Noticebox template to prevent templates that use it from overlaying onto other page elements (noticably, infoboxes like Samantha's page).

  • Hey hey :)

    Wanted to drop by to let you know that there was a thing or two we noticed in your MediaWiki:Wikia.css that we had to pull today. Basically, the current FANDOM customisation policy says that users can't really style things above-and-including page titles — or things at the bottom of the page, particularly the FANDOM news feed. It's necessary to leave these bits alone so that casual readers of, say, Wookieepedia, Harry Potter and The Expanse know that they're on the same site. In other words, we consider these areas as a fundamental part of the FANDOM brand identity.

    You had styled the font all the way up at the body element — and that's just a bit too high. That, of course, would mean every letter on the wiki — including the areas considered to be FANDOM global elements — would be styled with your preferred font.

    So I had to pull back a couple of your CSS statements in order to make sure that these FANDOM brand elements were at their defaults.

    If you have any questions about this move, please feel free to send in a Special:Contact!

  • The criteria aren't clear to me, but I figure if I ask, they'll tell me what's missing.

    • Okay, so Mystical added RailWAM to ImportJS... so I guess Mystical is really the one who needs to comment.

      I'm not a fan of the WAM thing, but it doesn't bother me that much.

    • I'd like to get a conversation going, preferably in "Google Hangouts", or "Telegram", or "Slack", or "Discord" on these topics. I believe MysticalArchAngel should be answering some of the questions.

      It seems to be something he discovered since he started working on the Altered Carbon Wiki and so decided he'd replicate it here.

    • Do you have any ideas for the script and topic?

      Do we know whether the person who's going to do it from their side is an actual fan of the show?

      It really depends much on what part they decide to highlight.  At the beginning of the season is when we'd want to have a video done to attract the most retention.  At the end of the season is when we'd have better new material to include.  So much will change between the start and end of the season that we'd have a different outline depending on when we wanted to do it.  I think it would be MOST ideal if we could do one video a few weeks before the new season and another updated one at the end of the season.  We could even cover different topics so that both will have higher shelf life.

      From what I can tell, it wouldn't be anything we couldn't actually do ourselves with a good script and a good voiceover guy.

      EDIT:

      Perhaps, the best topic would be the Belta Lang with a brief remark about the book version being replaced on TV with the Nick Farmer version.  The best people to review such a sript might be Wisnij and it-reaches-out.  It has been spoken about outside of the wiki and so that would be a potential downside to using it as the core topic; however, previous coverage has been primarily or strictly marketing the topic without the degree of "meat" or depth appropriate for a wiki.

      Next, there's the topic of physiological developments for those bodies growing in low-g or zero-g.  This topic has the potential to trigger my OCD if they write anything as "low Gs" or "high Gs". This actually has much less coverage in the TV show than in the books. While visualized beautifully in a couple of early but minor cases, there isn't a whole lot on it later in the series.[1]

      Another topic might be Epstein drives and the role of gravity and the juice including the need to flip and burn at the midpoint in order to slow.  This topic might be better to do later since season 3 will likely bring us better source material. This too might trigger my compulsion against miscapitalized uppercase scientific symbols.[1]

      There's also the subject of light delay in communications.

      Finally,...

    • I agree that a video mentioning the Epstein drive would be best after season 3 concludes, or, at least, after the appearance of the Ring network, since I believe the main topic of a post-S3 video should be the gates, where we could mention the Epstein drive, which is still being used for in-system travel.

      I actually don't think anything but lang Belta works as a topic for a near-S3 video. As for how they're made, as far as I know, we provide the script (possibly the images and clips, too), and they simply piece it together.
