Infobox issue at Talk:Main Page

Hey, just wanted to ask about that infobox issue you mentioned here. I've done some more looking into it and posted some updates, but I can't really zero in on the issue you were describing. (See the discussion there.) Can you provide more information? Otherwise, I'm going to have to forge ahead with things the way they are. Thanks. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 02:12, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

I thought I’d said something on the main page talk page, but checking now, I must have exited before saving. Anyway, my terror bull (and all other pet pages) show up like this: Spirit of Hell (talk) 20:03, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
Oh! I see. Well, that's not supposed to happen. Thanks, I'll definitely look into it. Out of curiosity, are you seeing that with all Infobox templates (in article space), now that I've updated them to the new code? Here's a selection of other configurations to check, if you're able. (It would be a huge help and greatly appreciated):
Basically, I'm curious if those render correctly, the same wrong way as Terror Bull, or differently wrong. Now that I've seen an example of the problem and understand it, you probably don't need to bother with screenshots, at least not for every one (unless there's something you feel is worth seeing), you can just describe the results in terms of differences from / similarities to the Terror Bull glitch. Thanks again for letting me know about that! -- FeRDNYC (talk) 19:42, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
The Guild one and the monster page both have the same shift as the Terror Bull pages, but both town pages look correct. —Holy Spirit of Hell (talk) 20:03, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! In the meantime I've sort of figured out what's going on, see this update on Talk:Main Page. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 20:17, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

Image link formatting/syntax

Hey HSoH, regarding this edit you made to Aura of baiting.

  1. The [[Image:...]] syntax in MediaWiki is special in that it only accepts image widths in pixel units. No em, no pt, no percentage widths.
  2. The only alternative to fixed pixel widths, for setting image size, is to use the upright syntax, which works in combination with the thumbnail or thumb option to resize an image to about 75% of the width of a plain thumbnail. The upright option scales larger or smaller in step with user screen resolution. Wikipedia's image policies claim that upright is preferable because it respects the user's preference setting for thumbnail size. Godwiki, however, does not have that preference, so to be honest there's much less advantage to using upright here than there is at The Other Wiki.
  3. When an invalid width argument (such as 90%) is found in the [[Image:...]] arguments, it's (fortunately) just ignored.
  4. (It's kind of a lucky thing that 90% wasn't accepted as a valid image width, since 90% of a desktop browser page width would've made for quite the oversized image. Percentage widths are a minefield when formatting for both mobile and desktop simultaneously.)

Due to #3, specifying 90% in an image link is the same as not specifying any size at all, which quite often is actually the best approach to dealing with image sizes, device resolutions, etc. So I removed the 90% from the image link, and replaced it with... nothing at all, allowing the image to be displayed at the default size. (Which it was anyway.) -- FeRDNYC (talk) 21:02, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

JanuWiki 2019 post-mortem

Hi Holy Spirit of Hell, I'm FeRDNYC. With JanuWiki 2019 wrapped up, we're having a post-mortem discussion over at its talk page to get a handle on what worked, what didn't, and what lessons we can learn for future events. As a participant in the event, your insights would be invaluable. We'd love it if you could share any feedback you might have. Feel free to join us at Talk:JanuWiki 2019! -- FeRDNYC (talk) 23:09, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
