Test of External Images
I have currently allowed external images to be shown on this wiki. However, for a variety of reasons I will be restricting the use of external images only to the message boards. The means that no external images will be used in any article and will be removed if found. Also, on the message boards, if the image has any prohibition against the use on other web sites such as Asylum Projects, then the image cannot be shown on this web site. Just post a link to the image instead as that will respect the hosts/photographers wishes. I'll write all this on the heading/message board rules later on. M-Explorer 13:06, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
Questions about the new Forum
Hey M, nice job on finding the new forum extension. I think it will made it easier for a wider range of people to contribute that don't have wiki experience. Anyway, while I was transferring some threads from the old forum I made an error or two that I didn't notice till after submitting the post, but I don't see any way to edit existing posts. Is that a permission that you still have to give to Squad and I? Or can existing threads not be edited? I was also wondering if this forum is customizable like the wiki pages, as far as graphics and colors? Thomasp94 19:10, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
- I'll hunt down the permissions thing in a bit. I've found this forum is not as customizable like other forums or like other wiki pages. Basically, what it is is a message boards that has been reconfigured to look and work like a forum. I'm still hunting down all the features of it and how it runs. If it is not now, maybe down the road, someone with php/coding experience could go in a customize it more. That's another nice thing about this mediawiki is that you can use extensions other people make and/or you can make your own that would work with this software. Also, I do believe that the learning curve for this new wiki software is far faster then the older site. The coding is used by many other wikis, so if someone has edited Wikipedia, per sae, then they would easily be at home editing here. M-Explorer 21:58, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
- I've tried something, please let me know if you can edit the forum now? For some reason it would not let me assign you forum-mod permissions either on this account or the main admin account. So I dug into the perm.php file and set it true so everyone should be able to edit their posts. M-Explorer 22:23, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
