I'm not really sure what's going on but it looks like the comments get locked on any page I edit atm, despite me making sure not to untick the comment box. Trying to change the protection level doesn't do anything either. Not really sure what to make of it tbh.
Edit: Looks like using the source editor is what caused it, which is kinda baffling and I'll have to investigate further.
Welp, we're on the UCP now. I'm sure it'll ultimately be good but ngl, I kinda hate how cluttered it looks when they've put "Edit | Edit source" next to every heading. I'm tempted to tell Sergey to put the NOEDITSECTION thing on every page, like it currently is on MAG 26.
Me and NoisyPitta have talked a bit about the "One piece per artist" thing in our fan art policy and we're thinking about relaxing it a little. Something like, "Artists can have several pieces on the wiki but don't spam a single artist" to give it more flexibility while still keeping some kind of limit on it.
Anyone got thoughts or feedback?
I'm currently working through the pages for each of the entities to make them cleaner and more organised. I'm going through every episode and using both my interpretation as well as existing comments on episode pages to categorise statements by entities. If you disagree with my decisions, feel free to message me.
I'm thinking of making a bot account for the wiki to help with mass edits and I just need community approval to get it set up properly.
My current plan for the bot is to tweak all the infoboxes on our episode pages by replacing "Unofficial/Official transcript" with just "Transcript". It's a minor change but it would make the infobox marginally more compact. The transcript archive also already specifies if a transcript is official or not and once RQ fills in the gaps, that's just gonna be all of them, hence making the distinction superfluous.
Having a bot set up might also prove useful for any future tweaks like this we wanna make.
Please comment to show your approval if you're in favour as I'll need to show Fandom staff that the community sup…
I've started typing up a draft for a manual of style as I think it'd be good to have one in place before season 5 starts in case there's an influx of new editors. I'd appreciate any feedback y'all have on changes/additions as it's just based on my editing preferences atm.
