Finished the Label Permissions and the Blanket Permissions as well as Label Permissions.

Will update the lists with noname's list when I get back from work.

It used to freeze up at P-Z for song authors, but now I'm half-way down P (which I couldn't post before). Really don't want to resort to having 2 different articles for the permissions ><

The links are references for us to find their music, we could just move those links into their own page.

You can if you want, I like having them there so people know where to go originally for music, because some of the links are there because they only want music from that link used in the game.

If you want to keep them on those permission pages, it will make them heavier to load and more confusing. I think simply making a list of artists with internal links could be a simple solution to your phishing problem and you could then make one article with permissions.

Also, added an extra line of code in Template:Musician and Template:Song so when you use any of those two templates, their respective category is automatically added.

edit : just hit 100 pages :)

I'm curious about how Jimerax isn't in the staff page with other admins but Tasselfoot is there.

Also on many occurances people are referred to by their first names, which isn't really practical in my book.

Whoa this exploded fast, tomorrow I'll spend all day re-reading all the content and make a .txt file with edits so the initial author can make the grammar edits. I feel like this way they learn more too.

And then I'll reword/reconstruct phrasing and paragraphs for some fun.

I noticed that too, so if no one else is set to do so I can work on this page.

Re: FFR Wiki
 
We really need to set up a plan and what's left to do.

Critical tasks
- We NEED a list of pages to add (engines, history of the website, tournaments, etc.......)
- Artists and songs to add (Noname219 - now at letter E)

Important tasks
- Template:Song page need some adjustments (Netjet! - will add some few other things)
- Additional information on songs and musicians (Noname219 and Crazyjayde)
- Logo ameliorations, transparency, "wiki" need a better font
- Some staff members to be added
- Setting up the homepage properly
- Having a page to know exactly what to do when new content is added
- List of musicians
- List of songs

Propositions
- FFR Terminology is a big ass page, we could have a whole page for play styles, AAA, BC, pattern terminology (some examples in files) with a redirection
- Having all permissions pages under the same one (links could be listed in artists page)
- Maybe having a page with some general guidelines to know what/how to add stuff on the wiki, a FAQ or something

Completed
- None yet!

This will go in the OP. If anybody wants to start something, they can go ahead.

This will inevitably, take us forever at the pace of contribution, but it's not impossible to do entirely. The idea I had behind it was to offer a bit of technical information in a paragraph for people too lazy to look at the template, and then talk about the strength and weaknesses in the chart for it followed by tips and tricks on tackling the chart, with there being a section at the end of the explanation that can include any screenshot images by any wiki people that involve that particular song. (It can be an accomplishment, or advice sections using puush and then saving it to your computer.)

Completed with the links to permissions on the homepage, but needs some updating from your list of authors and permissions because someone hasn't updated the blanket permissions thread since April.

Would love to put them all under the same page, but I had to do some heavy coding in source just to fit them as it is in one, and would hate to struggle with mixing them together because some of the links in the actual thread are required due to their limited permissions, which is why I left them aside from the actual blanket permissions. If you truly want to merge them though, I'm not going to argue with you on doing so.

Everything else I didn't quote from your post I don't have anything to really say against it and should probably be done.

{list}

Thanks! I can think of some few things to add but that's a good start.
Can probably have a category for step authors too.

For now, I'm putting information I've gather on the Song Corrections Thread. I won't go into details at the moment because I want to add all the pages first, then do a bit of research to make sure the current information is correct.

I'm really thinking about putting permission information for each artist on their page. (additional details concerning limited permissions for example)
-The permission page could serve as a directory only.
-List of musicians could be only for in-game musicians.
-Category:Musician would be a complete list of all the musicians in the wiki. (no work to be done there)

nostalgia? psychopath

noname219 08-7-2013 08:40 PM

Re: FFR Wiki
 
Did a few important modifications to Template:Song and Template:Musician :

1. Header now has the same colour of the website
2. On Template:Musician only, legends are aligned to the top (less confusion on the artists' profiles)
3. On Template:Song, added "In-game title" in File Information to see how the name should be displayed in the game
4. If a song has two of more versions, the second infobox has to be entered manually (see an example here : http://ffr.wikia.com/wiki/Nothing%27s_Gonna_Stop_Me)
5. Minor bugs fixed
* A note on "Original title" : applicable only if the name is different from the name displayed in the game (ie japanese names)

Now that I have more time, I should be able to add the rest of the artists/songs during the next couple of weeks. :)

Re: FFR Wiki
 
Made a new page : http://ffr.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_so...multiple_files

New template to use on v2 files : http://ffr.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Songv2
(check this page to see how it looks)

+ some ameliorations on infoboxes.

Need a bit of help here on List of songs.

I need to build the table quickly with an output for each song in the game, like this :

Code:

|-
| [http://www.flashflashrevolution.com/levelstats.php?level=1 1]
| [[Terror From Beyond]]
| [[Digital Explosion]]

For anyone who want to help, don't worry about duplicates, I will fix this after.

EDIT : Also added a few more categories. When you use templates icon, pages are added automatically to those categories.

I would like to have some feedback about the homepage : how it should be organised/what to put there ?

I'm planning on building portals in the long run, but I don't know where to start.

Re: FFR Wiki
 
List of songs is 95% done, just need to fix some weird occurences. Thanks to Excel and Notepad++.

edit: will separate the songs by year, page will be easier to edit in the future
edit2 : might as well make separate pages, loading time is getting out of hand
edit3 : It's done, but I didn't fix everything, tired, will do later.

Re: FFR Wiki
 
I figured I could help this wiki out, and I added a Tournaments article. It's still a work in progress and I plan on having the start date, number of rounds (if applicable) and victors of every tournament I can get my hands on. I also just threw some terms that were being tossed around recently, feel free to add/edit as you see fit.... RAWR!

-RARAWR

Edit: I pretty much complete the 2nd official tournament (just need to add the 8 songs per round)
Also the separate page idea seems to be working well and I'm going to go back and add on to the first tourny. Tell me what you think of the 2nd Tournaments page (follow the links on the main Tourny post).

Re: FFR Wiki
 
Good stuff! I completely forgot about this so I'll try to get back to editing and adding stuff when I can. :)
