I did a little research myself on the subject matter. I found out there was an area between the "york city" line and the Rebel frontlines known as the Neutral Ground, which was like the wild wild west for both the Cowboys & Skinners. If you have an opportunity you should put it in. Just on a cursory examination, I do not where to begin. Also, a definition of the Cowboy/Skinner and the origin of the word.
Finally, I found out King's Ferry, is actually a river crossing between Stony Point in NJ & Verplanck NY. If you do not have time, show me where to put it, the readers will get more out of the show
I have a general idea what I want to do. I am just trying to think of a title for the page: Primer, Glossary, backgrounder etc... You have keep in mind the skinners/cowboys were mentioned in more than one episode. If you have any ideas for a title just let me know
Very good. I was just looking at the wiki navigation bar, I was just curious why did you not keep your original format: On the Wiki / Comics / Episodes / Characters / Cast
Then added your various topics on the right hand side. ( Most people read left to right, in Hebrew its vice-versa)
My general impression is when most people come to your sight, their more interested in the show's "cannon" (tv show, comics,etc) then characters then cast in that order. If they have any deeper interest, they would go to your "various topics" (Another synonym you could use:sundries, very british or colonial thing to say; motley; mix bag)
To be perfectly candid, those with any deeper interest, like you and I for example, represent 2% population; That does not make use bad people, its just what is, a fact. It just seem your imposing the topic on the user base.
The navigation bar didn't have enough room for more additions, so I added them into the Various Topics section. I moved the Various Topics section to the right, as Comics is included in it, now. It also makes sense to include it on the right, because it includes more information about the series.
I did not say you should not group topics together, if anything at all I wholeheartily support consolidation, & it is great that that you placed it on the right-hand side.
Also I do not know if you care for "The Last Ship" anymore, I definitely do (Navy Culture, Politics, and International Affairs, I like this season where they delve deeper on how the virus affects everyone abroad, I also like Mark Moses character, Michner; Moses does good job playing authority figures, and with the last ship, they writers humanize him in the sense he does not have all the answers). I saw this site:
It talks about the lighter-than-air flying aircraft fleet.
PS: I do not know about your personal writing style, I believe in the "economy of words". There are some cases like "On the Wiki", "wiki activity", "random pages", "Historical Events" where you have no choice with respect to additional words, otherwise the topic headline lacks clarity. . Like that table I mentioned in an earilier conversation, if possible the headline should be succinct. Also as an admin, I am sure you are concerned about drawing "eye-balls" and "Various Topics", in my opinion does not have that "sex-appeal" as the marketers would say. I believe Sundries might do the trick, it goes back to the Middle Ages, I am sure it is a word that might have been used in that time. The fact that it is rarely used, is all the more reason it may draw a viewers attention.
That being said, I am not going bend your ear on the headline anymore.
How about "Assortment" , one word ; Just playing words with friends; To be honest I am still wedded to "Sundries", I do not understand your objection, as in : am I using the word incorrectly, lacks precision, issues of style?
PS: Last Ship is heating up, latest installment Michner seems to have committed suicide or maybe it was staged, more to follow.
Also, I was inputting a msg on you wall, then it disappeared, what's going on , this is the second time it happen
I was recently contacted by Cooksey.michael (Senior Director, Community Development at Wikia), it seemed liked he left an ominous message:
We reached out to Patrick, as well. If I don't hear back from him soon, we will move forward with the new skin.
If you like, we can make you an admin on this community if it turns out Patrick doesn't have time anymore for this wiki. Just keep me posted!
I have no desire to replace Patrick, I only want to serve in an adjunct capacity ( when he is unavailable). If you have his email address ,or whatever contact info, could you, please pass on the message, confer amongst yourselves to determine whether I am worthy of the priviledge.
PS: Two Observations
1) Turn: Real brutal scene, when Abe's wife stabbed the officer, as well as when Robesen was impaled against the tine of the firewood rack by simcoe. I did not think she had it in her. I had no idea turn had a wiki, I suspected there are not to many fans when it comes to heady stuff like history.
2) I also saw your Jag page, it seeed like you grouped all the shows made by Donald Bellasario, I am surprised you did not include Magnum PI or Quantum Leap. I just hate when everyone gives NCIS a hard time like its only for old people, or its just plain escapism. I think its just pure envy especially when it sdoing well in the ratings dept.
If he doesn't edit as much, I can make you an Admin and when he replies, you two can talk about if he wants to keep you as an Admin. Is that okay with you?
Also, I don't think that those two shows are in the same universe as JAG and NCIS. That's why. It's not for shows made by Donald P. Bellisario, but for shows that are in the same universe, that have crossed over with each other.
On video game Wikias, we grab the audio file of the character saying the quote. For this, we'd need to just grab that piece of audio (unfortunately including background effects) from the show directly.
Hey, Roger! The headers on the main page seem fine to me but if you want them to look clearer, maybe an option would be to try a different font? For example, this one is still an old style font but might be a little clearer to read. Let me know if you want the headers changed to this font :)
Sure, in that case, I don't see anything wrong with the headers that you have on here already. We can just make them a bit bigger if you're worried about visibility :) I'll continue to try adding anything new that I find too!
