Ugly Homepage

The homepage for this wiki REALLY needs a facelift. Whoever is in charge of it, should SERIOUSLY be working on making it look better, someone who actually understands how to edit a damn wiki. BlakFyr999 (talk) 05:10, October 15, 2012 (UTC)

  • I'm working on some information boxes that could be added to the front page. I'm testing things here. Things like featured articles, updates, changleogs etc should be added in boxes like these - I'll keep working on them and see what I can come up with. I'm also thinking I might be able to get a Twitter feed working, which would be nice to have. If there's anyone I can talk to about getting stuff put on the front page, that'd be great. -Thaede (talk) 16:10, October 16, 2012 (UTC)
    • But there's a bigger issue, You can't even edit the homepage unless your an admin.....wait, are you one? BlakFyr999 (talk) 23:40, October 17, 2012 (UTC)
      • I've allowed Homepage adjustments by registered users for the time being. We'll see how it goes. ~Kyu☆ (talk) 09:09, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
        • So am I alright to start adding some boxes to this? Just thought I'd ask permission before screwing with the front page. A Twitter widget would require MediaWiki by the way, I don't know if that's a wanted feature or not. So far I've done a title box, a box for useful links and a box for the latest game updates. Once we get a few more pages I was thinking about a featured article box. -Thaede (talk) 18:02, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
          • One thing I plan on adding is a slideshow newsfeed- again, I got the idea from DCUO. They often showed different updates and what not. Couple that with your ideas, and we'll have a pretty sexy homepage. BlakFyr999 (talk) 19:22, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
            • Go for it. I'd like to see what you guys come up with, and don't be afraid to break things. ~Kyu☆ (talk) 21:05, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
              • Ok, I went ahead and transferred over what I've been experimenting with so far. The content for the Links and Changelog boxes are now templates (here and here) - this will let users update this content without having to keep the Main Page unprotected. Blak, what kind of news do you want to put in the slideshow feed? If it's PokéMMO updates then see if you can get it to fit in the changelog template. -Thaede (talk) 22:33, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
                • Awesome, looks great! But you bring up a valid point. What WOULD you add to the slideshow? Now, my idea was to put the EVENTS in it, rather than the updates. This would put more ephasis on the events than the rest of the updats, if you catch what I mean. Like for example, the one for right now would be based on Spooky Pokemanz. I'll show you, but I don't really know how to do all that boxing stuff- can you make an area RIGHT above the first box I can put the slideshow in? BlakFyr999 (talk) 01:04, October 19, 2012 (UTC)
                  • Let's test it out here first. There's an open box at the top you can use. -Thaede (talk) 07:14, October 19, 2012 (UTC)
                    • I'm not 100% sure where your talking about, can you give me a link to the page? I'm sorry for being so confused BlakFyr999 (talk) 19:21, October 19, 2012 (UTC)
                      • I did, click on the word 'here' in my last post. -Thaede (talk) 19:31, October 19, 2012 (UTC)
                        • Oh, snap- thanks, gotcha. My bad, didn't even see that. BlakFyr999 (talk) 00:48, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

Logos and You

The logo has been updated to look less shitty, courtesy of EgoBrain . If you have recommendations on making the Theme less shitty in general, say 'em. ~Kyu☆ (talk) 09:56, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

  • So sexy..... also, I think the background color needs to be changed. I can't pin my finger on what exactly, but...it needs to be something.... Maybe I'm just trippin, thoughBlakFyr999 (talk) 19:24, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
    • Yeah it's definitely the background. Since the Wiki area has a solid white background we only ever see the two ends of the islands. If anyone knows some art wizard who could make us a fancy custom background that fits, that would be nice. -Thaede (talk) 22:35, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
      • Not to blow my own horn, but I fit the bill of "some art wizard" to an extent, I'd love to make one, but I can't now- this computer. But if I cook something up I'll let you know. BlakFyr999 (talk) 01:06, October 19, 2012 (UTC)
