And, to clear everything up, all these features that you mentioned is probably there so it would make things "easier" to distinguish? After all, it might be good if the values are easier to read while editing.
@Tactical haha i'm pretty chill. I was originally gonna use normal size but just added capitals for more fun haha. just felt like it OAO
yeah it sure does make things "Easier" to distinguish, but I guess that somewhat only applies for beginner users in the new age (the new age of color source code), and for veterans (couldn't find a better word, but it sounds nice haha) like us, we're stuck to the normal version and since we already know the coding well, the new age in my opinion just makes my eyes go blind (lol)
I'd say limitless. But I may assume you might be worried it will also affect the fill difference with the left and right side of the main page. If you think that will be a problem to you if you plan on adding multiple videos, then you might as well change how many featured images to be displayed on the wiki. Ha ha.
while I was editing the Part 1-6 Pages, I found a problem: other than the appeal points, none of the input data would show up. I don't have time cus I'm busy with school right now, so can you go check it for me? sorry i know you're busy too ~
Sorry to butt in but there is nothing wrong with the cardbox. You just have seemed to input the wrong information. If you're doing it from the visual editor, where it says Rarity, you have to type in N for normal. The same goes for a few others like Lucky Stars, 3 is for 3 stars and etc.
Well, I don't really want to get things worst and sorry if I'm butting-in in your topic, but why not instead of putting every character their own color, why not putting them their color type. Since their theme colors keep changing and also it would be easier to identify their type just by glance. I wanted to add this sugerence, again sorry if I shouldn't be messing with other persons conversation....
Well... Based on the opinions I've gathered, it would be satisfying for the page itself, but not for the overall theme for the wiki. When I think about it, clashing blue with pink (making an example of Ran and Futuring Girl) would just leave out the page and all the others would remain the same. It's just going to be more work. None of us have anything that can determine the color codes (ie: From Photoshop). Realize that we have THOUSANDS of pages and that we have to keep changing all their colors just so they'd match, which would be a heavy load of work.
in my last message i made a suggestion about indvidual templates with different colors for the main characters and templates with representing colors for both secondary and minor characters. Now i know nothing was agreed on that topic but i went and did some drafts on my Sandbox. The feedback ive had so far has been positive, even though ive only picked out 8 colors at the moment. i would like your feedback on what ive chosen so far
Alright. Sorry for not replying for over a month... I just got way too caught up with my college. (And you know how that feels, right?)
Based on the opinions I've gathered, I'd say that this suggestion is interesting, but what about the other characters as well? What will their color schemes be since they're just secondary/supporting/minor characters and all? The main characters would stand out, but not for the rest of the lower class. They wouldn't stand out too as well.
So, for the best, I think all the colors should be with the wiki's theme. Not to mention that some of the colors are very bright which worries me that it can hurt somebody's eyes.
So what I'm planning to do is I'll start uploading as soon as HKT is 8pm, a.k.a UTC 10:00am. So I'll be working on the Romance Stories & Brands as discussed, and you'll be working on the Constellations & Idols Yea?
I've come up with some ideas to improve the wiki, I know some may be inappropriate for the wiki but if you could talk about them with the other active admins it would be great.
Add a background image to sections like hotspots(only an admin can do this)
Add colour to the tabber (again admin only job)
Color code lyrics on song pages (not sure about this one since only one version of a song can be used)
Add a create a page link to the main page(Admin only job)
I know the navigation has all the main and secondary characters but if more characters are introduced then maybe it would be good to think about a page that lists the main, secondary and fashion designers on there, its only a thought. Since I'm not an admin I can't do most of those ideas but if you choose any and want help with the coding od be happy to help.
Also I trying to work on how to get extra tiers in the navigation on the WB1 if I ever find out how to do it I van let you know it might give you more space on the nav
ok. Here we go. Screw the school wifi cus it broke and I gotta retype this whole thing lol
Background Images: I get what you mean, I've seen it on other wikias, and I think its a great idea, so I think you can suggest some areas that we need to images and then the admins can start thinking of background image ideas and edit
Tabber: I don't neccerssarily think we really need colours as yes this wiki IS pretty colorful and also the fact we don't have much tabbers, so I'm gonna pass this.
Colour code lyrics: It's a definitely good idea for crazy fans, but people whos gonna edit this page needs to be a good listener and people who can define the voices well (well, not trying to be boastful, but I can definitely help with this section)
create a page: This is definitely anywhere on the wiki. If you look to the right above the wiki navigation, you will see contribute, and click it, and you should see add a page.
I'll try to plan out the wiki navigation to fit in more characters.
well maybe an admin should be in charge of doing that, if i was an admin I'd volunteer since Im the one who does it on the wb1 wiki, I pick colors carefully if im not sure I ask for feedback.. Usually its halo XD
I'm still debating on that hotspot background thing since I haven't found any good picture that could work and I don't think we should color code the song lyrics. I'm also working on some character nav templates after seeing a few good examples on some wikis I visit.
@Halo Sorry to butt in (I'm really sorry if this is unwelcome), but for the hotspot background thing you could just create/find a simple Aikatsu-related graphic and adjust the opacity settings on the image a bit. Just so it wouldn't stand out that much whilst still remaining relevant. Of course, though, it would have to be a colour palette that doesn't clash with your current blue links; which might be a bit tough. It's hard to match blue. x3
@Castiyes: I might give that a shot. I have a bunch of Aikatsu-related stuff for the wiki on my computer so I'll have a selection to choose from. So now that that's been settled, now remains the new wiki background I'm working on.
I still have to figure out what color/s to use for the background since I feel all that white is too plain then after that it's going to go through final edits. If you or anyone else have suggestions for the color/s then feel free to tell me.
I was considering that; however, I don't think it's such a good idea to take another's background like that. I can probably use that for a foundation and customize it to where it'll be ours. The thing is though I want the background Miyabi and Akari are on, but I'm not sure if whether or not it's removable.
Okay then. Now the main issue is figuring out whether or not it's removable. I'm not good with getting pictures off of the Aikatsu sites that aren't anything I can basically drag to a new tab and save.
I don't think Miyabi and Akari are removable, as they're apart of that image (I checked the images root folder for the site). If they've already been flattened together in Photoshop or something then there's no way of removing them without going through the trouble of erasing the background manually. Which, if you want a good job done, can be tedious. But not impossible - since I do it plenty of times for PriPara wiki - it just takes a while.
And I really like that background - it's not too much and I think it represents Aikatsu the best, as it's mainly an arcade-based franchise rather than anime. But the card idea is good, too, and it could work if done correctly. Which, of course, I'm totally sure that Halo can do.
Right. I know this has been already processed, but can I make a quick opinion on the "color code lyrics"?
"Color coding" the lyrics wouldn't make sense to me. Why would "colored lyrics" make any sense to the readers? All what the readers would do when viewing the lyrics page is see the transliterated lyrics of the music. I don't see the point why the lyrics should be improved with colors. It's just doesn't make any difference to it. It's just like reading a plain piece of written paper. Like reviewing a written script.
Just...where do you get this idea from anyways? Just only asking. Because after all, there's no point to this just by adding colors to it. It's only like reading a book.
Color coding is usually seen in korean pop lyrics, as korean pop bands usually compose of 5+ members. Fans like to sing to them, and sometimes make covers, so they started the color coding trend so other fans who couldn't tell who was singing which part can make a cover of that number of members so they can sing to the parts they want to(I might be not making sense)
Here's an example of I Got A Boy by Girl's Generation (everyone should know this. I mean, it won a YTMA)
But that's K-pop. J-genre songs don't color-code their lyrics and like Tactical said, most people look at the English translations anyway so why color code. It's generally easy to tell who's singing what lines too with J-genre stuff too. Not only that but color-coding the lyrics would most likely add more unneeded work to the song pages.
Well, if you're uncertain if the new image might not be ideal, you can always ask me for userbox advice.
And, you know how to change images, yes? Well that's the point how you can actually 'change' images. Also, I kinda preferred that the sizes be at least 45 x 45 pixels (px). Just for...convenient fit on the image section of the userbox. (Cause it looked as if it's sized up to 45px. Haha.
