Talk page of Dan Hoey, also a wikipediaTalk editor.

Until I get erfwiki e-mail working, I suggest you use my WP talk page for comments.


Another experienced editor! Do me two huge favors, and:

  • Add {{mainpagecontrol}} to your page
  • Change up the Featured Article, Did you Know, etc from time to time.

Sad to say, I'm pretty much the only person who does 'em. Oh yeah and help with the Improvement Drive would always be great.

If I count for experienced, we're all in trouble. But I don't know what you're asking. Did you want me to put {{mainpagecontrol}} on my home page, talk page, or where? Where do I get the data to fill in all the empty slots?–Dan Hoeytalk 13:55, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, I was thinking more like... ummm, from time to time, follow the various links and update the content. {{mainpagecontrol}} has links to the Featured Article, Latest Update, etc. You know, the front page stuff. So if you stumble across a really good article, or think of something for the Did You Know section, feel free to add it :P Miment 03:32, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Editing annotations, especially footnotes

Up to TBFGK_86 so far.–Dan Hoey(talk) 13:51, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Why the booping boop doesn't the talk link work? –Dan Hoey(talk) 00:42, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Something that works everywhere except User_talk: pages? There's gotta be a technical reason for this, but it's still ridonkulatious.–Dan Hoeytalk 00:48, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
If you try and link to a page you're already on, the link just bolds up. So if you link to your talk page, ON your talk page, you just get a bold link. It will work fine elsewhere. Miment 03:32, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation–Dan Hoeytalk 03:42, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Up to TBFGK 100 so far–Dan Hoeytalk 03:03, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

References on Annotations pages

User talk:SteveMB gives a standard form for TBFGK and therefore other Annotations pages. I wrote some of this there, but it's here so I can look at it more. If someone else enters this discussion, we can put it in one place.

The problem is that the standard is hard to follow, and does not prompt one to follow it. If someone adds a footnote to the page-by-page without adding the footnote to the panel-by-panel, it looks fine on the page-by-page. But the panel-by-panel has a footnote ref that doesn't have a footnote note. Similarly, someone can add a footnote to the panel-by-panel without adding the note to the page-by-page. Again it looks fine on the panel-by-panel but the page-by-page is screwed up. –Dan Hoeytalk 03:28, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

You know, I've always wondered why anybody even bothered with a the panel by panel bit. It seems pretty wasteful. You can't hit "random page" without getting a panel. Like, every page that the comic updates creates 12-14 new pages on the wiki :/ Miment 00:22, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
The page-by-page is scaled down so you can't read it, and the relevant notes are too far away. But in panel-by-panel, you can see the whole thing, full size, in one screen. That's what does it for me.–Dan Hoeytalk 01:20, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
By the way, it would be good to be able to make "random page" skip the panel-by-panel pages.–Dan Hoeytalk 22:03, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
