How long has that Manual of Style item been there? Until you mentioned it and I went to look, I didn't recall ever seeing it before. It's a little awkward, because now there's a whole lot of repair work on a lot of articles that needs to be done. I'll do what I can on the MNT Gaiden articles, since those use special templates, but there are tons of other articles that use inline storylinks too.
For quite a while, I'm afraid. It was put into place to A) not only make it conform with other Wikias (where I've seen it only used as a footnote at the end of a sentence, but also B) make it easier to read. If the text suddenly shrinks to half the size of the rest of the sentence, then goes back to normal size, it's pretty daunting. Especially on mobile, one's eye would have to keep moving up and down.
Damn. I've read the MoS before. How is it possible I didn't see this?
Well, just a heads up, I've been using storylinks the "wrong" way for many months on many articles all over Turtlepedia. I couldn't even begin to remember all of them.
(Also, a minor, perhaps insignificant note: "misspelled" and "misspelt" are equally acceptable. :) I tend to say "spelt", "dreamt", "learnt", "leapt", "kempt"—all perfectly acceptable alternatives to "spelled", "dreamed", "learned", "leaped", "combed". I've been reading dictionaries for fun since 1995. :)
All right, I think I've fixed all the misuses in the MNT Gaiden article. That leaves...the rest of the wiki. At least MediaWiki has "what links here" pages, but that would be a daunting task, even for me.
Hi, I recently (May 1, 2015) made a wiki for Raphael, and I have someone who I'd like to make an admin on there. Sicne you're an admin, do you know how to add one? Me and my friend both thought to ask an admin. Thanks.
You made a whole wiki about Raphael? Anyway if you want to make someone an admin go to the users page click on contributions, then user rights management, then check administrator and click Save user groups.
According to the credits, he does (then again it also calls him "Bebob"). A cast list I got directly from someone at Paramount Studios also reflected this (complete with Bebob spelling as well).
If I recall correctly, according to Cam, the casting director for the game had no idea he was the original Leonardo and cast him based on ability alone. I would guess that the same was true for him being cast as Bebop instead of Rocksteady.
Hey there! We're running some programming right now that asks people to pick their favorite character's skills or power and explain how they would save the day with it. I posted this thread explaining it with a link to the actual program, but I think it might be fun for TMNT fans! I was just wondering if you could help us promote it on this wikia? Let me know, thanks!
Hi, I'm a regular on Community Central chat; I've been trying to advise User:MarioLuigiGCFan ever since his sockpuppet was blocked. Now I just want to discuss your blocking policy, because you've frustrated pretty much everything I would usually advise.
I am honestly not in a position to say whether the user is guilty of the original offense of "inserting false information" because I don't know anything about your series. In any case, he has expressed the desire to apologize and explain - except there seems to be no way to apologize or appeal a block on this wiki.
The block setting "cannot edit own talk page" has been manually enabled (you seem to do this a lot). When that occurs, we generally advise users to use the blocking admin's message wall on Central... except...
Project:Policy says "If an admin takes disciplinary action toward you, please do not follow them to another Wikia and harass them", and apparently simply wanting to discuss the matter constitutes harassment.
Let me be the first to say that MarioLuigiGCFan made a mistake in using a sockpuppet to apologize, but you seem to have no intention on allowing users to discuss their blocks, which is pretty problematic when you block users for a year for (correct me if I'm wrong) a first offense. If you had a legitimate channel for discussion then maybe inexperienced users wouldn't make the mistake of using alternate accounts.
Please, can some discussion be allowed somewhere? It's honestly rather bad policy to default to prohibiting discussion on a user's talk page at the very least.
Hello I'm sorry to intrude but I just want to explain a little about the whole blocking thing. You see we are extremely short staffed here they're only 4 admins including myself, and sometimes not everyone is here. Also we've have also had some major major vandalism go on here, also cyberbullying again vandalism and also harassment and multiple account troubles. We had one user who made countless accounts just to insult and harass everyone especially all the admins, we then had one who was cyberbullying me and went to every other wiki I contributed to harass and insult me, and didn't stop there I had to contact wiki multiple times until they took care of it. And many many times users are warned about what they're doing wrong who just continue to do wrong, and again they make multiple accounts to continue. We even had someone who tried to sneakly post pornography links, and I dealt with a group of users who only made accounts to cyberbully a user. I just thought I should let you know about all the troubles,we have and continue to have, but I do agree that there should be some discussion with blocked users, the only problem is we never know who is trying to troll us and go behind our backs, again past troubles.
I'd like to ask you permission so I can upload the title image that goes with Mutant Ninja Turtles Gaiden Chapter 22: The Witch-Hunt of a Bloodline. All the other chapter title images are up, but I have put off uploading this one because it is...particularly graphically violent. Not necessarily worse than the graphic gunfire deaths in the pages of Bodycount (Kevin Eastman and his adult comics—sheesh), but I just want to make sure I'm not stepping on any administrator's toes if I upload this image and place it in its appropriate mature-tagged article.
My fellow TMNT fan friends begged me to read MNT Gaiden for some time anyway, and now that I have, I'm here to contribute to the best of my ability. :)
Hello again! Since the Qwizards play-along contest is long since over, I swapped out the slider image to highlight the exclusive special features video we just got for the Blu-ray of the new film. Just letting you know, if you'd rather have the Qwizards image back up, feel free, of course. :)
