Add more talk pages

TimothylovesAIO (talk) 11:10, 28 November 2012 (MST)I was looking on wiki, and I noticed there was not many talk pages. So i think there should be more talk page especially on characters.

fan Ratings Page

Is there a way to add a top twenty most voted on episodes list to the fan ratings page BVPanther84 00:36, 12 March 2011 (UTC)


Revising the Stub Template

The stub template has been large and somewhat distracting for a quite a long time. I propose that we change it to be a little more discrete. This will create a better look on the thousands of pages that use the template.

Here's one idea:

This article is a stub. You can help us by expanding it.

Erwin Springer [talk] 17:11, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

I kinda like the old one. It fits with the rest of the infoboxes. just saying! --
Proverbs 31:3030Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
~ Aria ~ (talk) 17:16, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Aria.Gooey98 ~ (talk) 18:50, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
I think we do need a more hidden notice because some of the articles honestly cant really be expanded all the much. So do we really need the stub template the biggest thing on the page? I'm not sure if I really like the this new template but I definitely thing we need to revise the old template. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 21:01, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
I just created a new stub template on my test episode page: Get Whit it. Let me know what you think! - Eugene [talk] 00:18, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
I really like it! However, when there is a tall infobox, it clashes a little bit. Hmm. Erwin Springer [talk] 01:45, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

There, I fixed it. It doesn't sound as polite as the old template, but it is smaller and fits with infoboxes. Check it out here and tell me what you think. - Eugene [talk] 02:10, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

I think it's hidden. If you're not looking you may not see it. Adventures inodysseylego ~ (talk) ~ (Guestbook) 14:51, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
I agree with AIOLego, too. I only found it because I was looking for it. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 15:08, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

I like Eugene's. --

~ Aria ~ (talk) 15:48, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

I thought that the point was to make it more discrete. If you want it to stand out more, we could change the colour of the box. But I think that it's fine the way it is. - Eugene [talk] 16:55, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
So are we going to go ahead with this new template? - Eugene [talk] 16:38, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
I like that idea. I think we should do it! ODYSSEYLOVER 18:13, 18 April 2012 (MDT)

New Infobox

I was looking at the new infobox on the sandbox episode page, and it looks great. So why aren't we using it yet? Gooey98 ~ (talk) 18:39, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

it's planned to be used after the 1.17 upgrade, the design of it is almost done but there is a fair amount of recoding to do on it yet to make it more compatible with future versions (1.18) Reddo 17:25, 9 May 2011 (PDT)

The Updated Whitsend.org

When the Odyssey team updated Whitsend.org, they changed the system they use. Because of this, all of the links have been changed to a different format. Thus breaking all of the links pointing to Whitsend.org on AIOwiki. But because the new link system is name based, perhaps we could come up with a template to automatically add the links into episode and album pages? Either way, I'll start replacing any old links with the new ones. Thanks! - Eugene [talk] 20:55, 3 June 2011 (PDT)

I think Reddo could configure his bot to do this, thus saving a lot of time on your part. I would wait until he sees this and then see what he says. AIOCREfan ~ (talk) 06:17, 4 June 2011 (PDT)
I might be able to get Reddobot to do something like this for us, I'll have to contact Nathan though and see if I can get a list of the URL's, anyways for now I think we should concentrate on getting more of the official podcast pages done, or at least starting them Reddo 06:02, 6 June 2011 (PDT)
I think that as long as we're waiting, we should start doing it manually. Point out the links and I'll get to them in my free time. Castriff

International Adventures in Odyssey Schedule

Does anyone know how much of the world uses the same schedule for Adventures in Odyssey as the one posted here? Is it only the United States and Canada? Here's one alternate schedule Internationally: http://www.ccfm.org.za/go/index.php?id=642 --Odyssey123

I believe that Focus sends out the programs on the schedule we have here to whichever stations "subscribe" to them, or something like that. However, some stations probably have their own schedule. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 10:38, 9 August 2011 (PDT)
I'll see if I can find anything out about this, but I think that the schedule posted here is used for most of the world, but stations have some freedom in what they air Reddo 18:43, 10 August 2011 (PDT)
The station that I listen to in Australia (Vision Radio Network) plays the same schedule as in the above link, and I have actually been keeping track of the schedule of my radio station since December 2009. Aussie aio fan 00:16, 28 September 2011 (PDT)
If both the Australia and South Africa schedules are reliably the same then this is probably not an arbitrary station choice. Would you be able to post the 2009+ schedule somewhere? A few of those links have some matches on archive.org, which could be used to compare if you have those recorded for Australia: http://web.archive.org/web/20100714072513/http://ccfm.org.za/go/index.php?id=133 Of course, if Reddo is able to get a clarification direct from Focus on the Family then that would be great. Odyssey123 16:47, 30 September 2011 (PDT)
I got a reply from Rudy Haerr, turns out that all the international stations get a big list of episodes every 3 months and then each station chooses what episodes they want to air from that list and when they want to air them, then in 3 months they get a new list to choose from. Reddo 08:54, 3 October 2011 (PDT)
I got another email today, turns out that what i just posted is wrong and infact there is an official international schedule. I think we should include the international schedule in some way on the wiki, just not sure how yet. I should have more time on friday to work that out, I have a bunch of school stuff due tomorrow Reddo 15:43, 5 October 2011 (PDT)
How are you going on working out how this could work? I could maybe help out with this. I can't guarantee that I will have access to a computer, but I will give it a go. Aussie aio fan 21:38, 12 October 2011 (PDT)
Any updates or help wanted? Odyssey123 18:29, 26 October 2011 (MDT)

Is anything going to happen with this? Aussie aio fan 00:53, 9 December 2011 (MST)

Yes, Sorry for not doing anything sooner but I was very busy with school this year (somedays worked 8AM to 3AM) anyways I have more free time now, would you mind uploading them to your user page? then we can move on from there. Reddo 10:17, 9 December 2011 (MST)
I have added it Aussie aio fan 10:03, 10 December 2011 (MST)
Have you been keeping track of international weekend dates? It seems the last few months have matched up with the U.S. schedule but at least some last year did not. Odyssey123 16:57, 10 December 2011 (MST)
No the station I listen to doesn't air weekend episodes so I have no idea what episodes have aired. Aussie aio fan 23:41, 10 December 2011 (MST)

How difficult is it going to be to split off the schedule and create a second one for the international dates? Another schedule issue is with dates that Odyssey episodes have aired on the Focus on the Family broadcast. So far the few fotf dates are mixed in with the daily Odyssey calendar, but what happens when an episode aired the same day for both? What should be listed as the original date for an episode such as Whit's Flop or The Imagination Station, Part 2 which premiered on fotf? Odyssey123 20:12, 6 April 2012 (MDT)

character and actor pages

over the next few days I'll be completely redoing the characters are listed on actor pages, the way actors are listed on character pages, and the list of episodes on staff pages. At times the wiki might be slow but I'll try to do most of it at night for North America. When it's done hopefully it should be a lot more reliable (check out Olivia Parker says there's only 1 actor) and hopefully it'll be a little bit faster too Reddo 23:05, 25 August 2011 (PDT)

Thank you for doing that, I've noticed before that character and actor pages have said incorrect things,usually missing information. I appreciate you taking the time to work on that. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 09:25, 26 August 2011 (PDT)
yeah it's been flaky pretty much since it was made and I finally got fed up with it enough to make a new system. Currently I've updated the staff pages list section so they'll now show all characters that they've played, even if we don't have a page for that character yet. It fixed the long time problem that page for Andre Stojka didn't list whit as a character. The wiki's also in the process of remaking the infobox for all the cast and crew correcting the incorrect number of character played stat as well as adding a new stat for podcast appearances and generating a new category for us category:Podcast Actors. Reddo 08:23, 27 August 2011 (PDT)

Unused Files

I noticed that we have 1,115 unused files. Many of them could be useful, but others are unneeded. Would someone who can delete things go through those and delete the unneeded ones? Gooey98 ~ (talk) 21:03, 30 September 2011 (PDT)

Sorry that I'm just now responding! If you notice at the top of the page it says "Please note that other web sites may link to a file with a direct URL, and so may still be listed here despite being in active use." So there is not really that many unused files. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 18:39, 1 November 2011 (MDT)

Make that 1,114. -Sunnys <BIBLE|-- (talk) 10:41, 22 December 2012 (MST)

Album Templates

I'm going to add Soda Fountain links along with the Whit's End, Odyssey Scoop, Odyssey Library links. I have already add the ISBN link to the templates that are made and I'm going to add the Soda Fountain link. Since it will have all the links then the album pages will not need resource section. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 14:15, 21 October 2011 (MDT)

Jenny Whitaker

I noticed that on the Jenny Whitaker page that Natalie O'Hare is not listed as one of the actors who played her. How do I fix that? --AREM Meltsner 16:08, 21 October 2011 (MDT)

Post-Production or Producer

I have read that post-production is the music designer. On B-TV: Live, the aiowiki has Dave Arnold, Johnathon Crowe, Rudy Hair as post-production but the AIO Library has them as producers. The AIO Library does show the difference for example in Kidsboro, Part 1‎ it has GAP Digital as the post-producer and producer. On a different subject should GAP Digital be listed as a producer (not all episodes with music by GAP Digital are listed also as producer)? Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 16:25, 8 November 2011 (MST)

Where have you read that post-production is the music designer? I always wondered what post-production meant. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 10:27, 26 November 2011 (MST)
Unknown Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 11:40, 26 November 2011 (MST)
Actually, that says sound designer, not music designer. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 15:02, 26 November 2011 (MST)

Logo Contest 2011

How do we vote on the different Logos? --AREM Meltsner 20:38, 14 December 2011 (MST)


Just curious - It's been over a week since the deadline passed. Is someone is going to post the poll so people can vote on a new logo? I would put it together, but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to. - Eugene [talk] 23:20, 23 January 2012 (MST)

Newly Released Covers

I found out from Brock that the newly released covers are not actually the final covers. Tyndale somehow got an early draft. Which means that Tom will be lassoing the AIO logo on album 34. And I assume the back covers too, since album 6 has Eugene on the back and Eugene isn't in that album at all. Anyway, so they aren't final. AIOCREfan ~ (talk) 12:11, 29 December 2011 (MST)

umm okay... we'll keep everything just as it is though until there is a newer version out, we'll change it then Reddo 12:41, 29 December 2011 (MST)
That's what I thought we should do as well, just letting everybody know that they aren't final. AIOCREfan ~ (talk) 14:03, 29 December 2011 (MST)

The categories' box on pages like episodes seem really long for some reason. EX: Wooton Knows Best. Is there no way to collapse it? Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 20:59, 31 December 2011 (MST)
It looks like they changed it so that each category link will always be displayed on a single line instead of "wrapping" to the next line when it gets too close to the right side. They also seemed to space them out more. Both of these factors do add to the space that category boxes take up. However, I don't think that they need to be collapsible. - Eugene [talk] 18:51, 1 January 2012 (MST)
I think they just meant that they should take up less space, not have a collapsible button on them Reddo 13:46, 2 January 2012 (MST)

The AIOwiki links are no longer available on the editing bar. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 15:56, 3 January 2012 (MST)

I'll look into those two things tomorrow, I was busy tweaking the mp3 extension today, we can now use [[file:702 Sample.mp3]] this registers file use so we can finally get all of those unused files that are actually being used cleaned up. We can't specify colors with it but for when we want some custom colors or an external file the old version still works Reddo 01:21, 5 January 2012 (MST)
yeah, it's back now, took down the whole site in the process, but that was due a bug in the mediawiki software, working on editing toolbar now Reddo 12:00, 5 January 2012 (MST)

Updated Main Page

I was reading through the Town Hall archives to see what I missed over the past few months. I noticed that Nate wanted to update the Main Page layout when the new logo is chosen. Since it looks like no-one has started on a new design, I went ahead and created a new layout for the Main Page. You can see it on User:Eugene/Main Page Concept. I kept the same colours, but changed the look of the boxes. The overall layout hasn't been changed much, but I added some new sections to feature more of our content.

Anyway, I thought that I'd help out with the re-design. Let me know what you think! - Eugene [talk] 15:28, 6 January 2012 (MST)

No offense but that just doesn't appeal to me. It looks like you took the info on the current page and just moved it in a jumbled fashion. I think like the center piece should be updated as well. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 16:30, 6 January 2012 (MST)
I'm also not a huge fan of it but there are lot of things i do like about it, new place of comment like, poll question, recent questions, the more info part of the New Episodes sections. I think we should include those things in our new version, and seeing the new placement of comments reminded me I don't think the comment count code is working, something I'll have to look into Reddo 17:46, 6 January 2012 (MST)
comment count works again Reddo 11:40, 7 January 2012 (MST)
Look at User:Spiderman/Main2. The main thing I like about it is the fact the banner like thing goes all the way across the top. I think that would be an idea to consider. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 23:33, 17 February 2012 (MST)

I think Eugene's idea is good. -Sunnys <BIBLE|-- (talk) 10:55, 22 December 2012 (MST)

Podcasts

I made a little template that makes it easier to keep podcast summaries up to date, it works just like the season pages in that it uses information from each podcast page to generate the summary view instead of doing everything by hand. You can see it for the first page here, thoughts? anything i should add or remove? The main reason for this is that our current lists hacen't been updated since August of last year. Reddo 22:27, 23 January 2012 (MST)

I was thinking about this a few weeks ago, then promptly forgot. That looks great, Reddo! My only comment is that it looks a little squished. I was just playing around with it and came up with this idea:
Podcast Listing Concept.png
It saves a bit of space, but it might be confusing. The other thing we could do is simply add some padding. But I thought I'd at least show you my idea. - Eugene [talk] 00:11, 24 January 2012 (MST)
I like the concept you came up with Reddo 06:09, 24 January 2012 (MST)
While we're on the subject of podcasts, all of the podcast pages are missing a transcript. Do you want me to fix that? -Blu Jay 06:30, 24 January 2012 (MST)
Great! I changed it to the new layout and also made it so it will link to the video files if it is a video podcast. - Eugene [talk] 09:16, 24 January 2012 (MST)
How would we format the transcripts? Would we create a new template? - Eugene [talk] 09:17, 24 January 2012 (MST)
I was just going to type the information out. If you want to create a new template, be my guest. I'll use it. --Blu Jay 15:10, 24 January 2012 (MST)

Whittaker Quotes

I noticed that sometimes the whittaker quote page has trouble loading. Is there something that can be done to fix this? Maybe make Jason a separate quote page? Just a thought. --

~ Jason ~ (talk) 08:17, 7 February 2012 (MST)

An Idea I have.

I was thinking it'd be cool if we could make pages for the different characters that were timelines of different key events from episodes. It'd be tricky to do... But I was just thinking like with Whit there's so much for him. A lot can be said on characters profile pages, but even more could be said with something like a timeline.--

~ Jason ~ (talk) 11:45, 14 February 2012 (MST)

Yea I've been thinking about something like this for a long time. The timeline things an interesting idea though. We could do something like Wikipedia does and have a bunch of different characters. It would be quite a cumbersome task but I think it's a cool idea. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 18:08, 14 February 2012 (MST)
Do you mean do it for a bunch of the different characters? Like Whit has a lot of history to him. What with the war, and ireland, and getting married and Jenny dying and etc. Also we almost could do one for Whit's End too.--
Isaiah 40:3131but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
~ Jason ~ (talk) 18:11, 15 February 2012 (MST)
I've also been thinking about something like that for a while, but just haven't come up with a good idea for implementing it yet... maybe a few smaller ones would be better, like one centered on kids, one on major characters and sagas ect. just an idea Reddo 21:35, 15 February 2012 (MST)
Not like the characters' histories of their lives. I was thinking a history of the show. Like showing what kids were in which period of Odyssey history. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 21:41, 15 February 2012 (MST)
I think the character's history would be cool too. Both ideas are an interesting thought.--

Book Images

I believe I have finished creating all the categories that are associated with the book images template. If there are an mistakes please say something. However, this was originally Eugene's project so I may not know the solution. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 23:38, 17 February 2012 (MST)

P.S. Sorry for the mess on the recent changes. The beginning was trial and error.

i.p. addresses and spam

When you admins block ips, is it possible for you to block that person from editing, or can you only block them from creating an account? It seems like blocking them would be almost pointless if they can still edit. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 15:06, 10 March 2012 (MST)

When an IP is blocked they cannot edit or create an account. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 15:22, 10 March 2012 (MST)

Creating a Wiki

My siblings and I want to create a Wiki website for one of our favorite TV shows. (Sue Thomas F.B.Eye) but we can't figure out how to create a Wiki site using our Mac computers. Can anyone give us some info on to how to start one? Thanks! Psalm 138:8~Mamie Rose~ 08:08, 11 March 2012 (MDT)

using your mac to create a wiki will only let you and who ever has access to your computer see the site, if you want it to be available to everyone you'll need to go through a hosting company like dreamhost and purchase a domain name. After you have one of those two things complete you'll need to make sure your system (mac or web server) meets the requirements
  1. apache web server program to serve pages (or similar program)
  2. php 5.2.3 or later
  3. database program (I'd recommend MySQL 4.0+)
  4. ImageMagick for photo conversion and thumbnailing
  5. one last requirement is you need to have shell access to run maintenance scripts and upgrades
the whole process of installing the wiki software and getting your site running is detailed further here Reddo

Thank you so much for the help! And thanks for all you do for AIOwiki. Psalm 138:8~Mamie Rose~ 14:56, 11 March 2012 (MDT)

Past or Present tense?

When writing a character's description, should it be in the the past or present tense? (e.g. she had a good sense of humor, vs. she has a good sense of humor)? Psalm 138:8~Mamie Rose~ 21:02, 19 March 2012 (MDT)

spam

due to the recent increase in IP's making new pages filled with spam I've disabled page creation for people that aren't logged in. I didn't want to, but there wasn't really any other choice, I tried making captcha's and other things but it didn't work, so now anyone wants to create a page they have to log in. Hopefully this stops the spammers once and for all Reddo 09:06, 20 March 2012 (MDT)

Hopefully they don't start editing pages and doing that. That would require reverting it. Which the nice thing with them creating pages its relatively easy to fix. So does that mean they can't even start a topic on the episode talk pages that have not been created? Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 14:19, 20 March 2012 (MDT)
Reddo, thanks for doing that. I was going to suggest that, but I see you already did. Stop Wooton' Around - I'm assuming yes because the page doesn't already exist. Blu Jay 18:53, 20 March 2012 (MDT)
Yes unfortunately there is now no page creation for annon users, so if a talk page doesn't exist they can't post a topic about it, they can still edit the page though, Reddo 23:44, 20 March 2012 (MDT)

or
 [[Episode name here]] 


P.S. Thanks for keeping this great site on line. God Bless Aiow 09:25, 11 April 2012 (MDT)

I'm assuming it's
[[Episode name here]]
because that's how it was on Robert Mitchell's page. --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 12:59, 11 April 2012 (MDT)
Both are acceptable, the version with the { }'s just has some extra options for including the episode number Reddo 17:01, 20 April 2012 (MDT)
Thanks, so use the [ ] in most cases, the { } where you need more options. Aiow 08:15, 24 April 2012 (MDT)

Something Old, Something New, Part 1 Quotes

I thing the Quotes for Something Old, Something New, Part 1 are in the wrong place, but I don't know where they go, can someone fix this?

Passages: Darien's Rise album art

On the Passages: Darien's Rise album page ,in the "Gallery" why is the "front cover" not the "original front cover." On http://www.whitsend.org/albums/passages-dariens-rise.aspx it has the "Original front cover" and on the cbd product page it has the "Original front cover" as the album art.

That is because CBD and the Whit's End product pages were not updated. In recent printings, they have used the front cover with the new version of the AIO logo. AIOCREfan ~ (talk) 15:50, 23 May 2012 (MDT)
Yeah, whitsend.org is pretty lazy about updating product pages. Not meaning that Nathan is actually lazy, but they often aren't updated long after everyone's seen more recent artwork. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 18:51, 25 May 2012 (MDT)
They've actually been doing better lately about keeping things updated, that's not saying much though. The Official site needs someone besides Nathan working on it, he has to many other things to do. There's things that are broken, out of date and sometimes just wrong, like this [2] Reddo 19:20, 25 May 2012 (MDT)
Yeah, that incorrect proposed cover art has been bugging me for a while. They should get Jacob Isom to do the site (just an idea). After all, the odyssey scoop is pretty up-to-date with what's happening. This is written assuming you couldn't do the site. Although I suppose it might have to be someone working with Focus. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 21:33, 25 May 2012 (MDT)


Hay, Thanks for all the responses. Too bad, liked the "old" cover better, I might use that one on my album (when I eventuality get it). Sorry for not signing my name when I made this section.Aiow 06:17, 2 June 2012 (MDT)

Jared and Trent DeWhite's Quotes Page..

Some of the script is corrupted and the html isn't working correctly!! Should I try to fix it? Cuz I'm not exactly sure how you do those quotes.. Macgirl222 16:39, 7 August 2012 (MDT)

I would let Reddo fix it. I looked at the templates and didn't see anything wrong but there obviously is because its messed up. I also don't understand those templates so that's going to have to be left to Reddo. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 20:42, 7 August 2012 (MDT)
I was able to track down the problem and also uncovered another issue while investigating. Someone added a second group of quotes in the plot section of The Present Long Ago. There are two options to rectify the issue. Either we can leave it with two quote sections and fix the numbering, or re-arrange the page so that there is only one quote section. I prefer the second option as it will return the page to the normal form of episode pages.
The other issue I found was in this archive page: Adventures_in_Odyssey_Wiki:Town_Hall/Archive8#Quotes. I don't want to alter the archives, but it's causing a problem where it tries to add these quotes.
I know how to make these fixes, but I want to hear other people's thoughts first. - Eugene [talk] 00:21, 8 August 2012 (MDT)
I would rearrange it with only one quote section. That just makes more sense to me. I could actually do it myself, but I'll let you do it...Gooey98 ~ (talk) 17:50, 13 August 2012 (MDT)
Check.svg Done I have put all of the quotes together and re-wrote the last paragraph of that episode. I also came up with a solution for the archived Town Hall page. Thanks! - Eugene [talk] 23:06, 14 August 2012 (MDT)

Proposed front page idea

How about a random fact of the day; just like the random quote except it would pull out from the note sections of the episode pages.

Something like this Aiow 06:12, 10 August 2012 (MDT)

Random triva

Template:Main Page notes

That's a pretty cool idea. If it's wanted, would help be needed to reformat the notes? I could help with that if told what to do. --

How to Make New Pages

Hey, does anyone know how to make a new page?

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Starting_a_new_page this link tells how to make now pages. The easiest way is just to follow a link to a page that does not exist yet Nothing here. from that link you could create the page nothing here. Aiow 07:38, 5 October 2012 (MDT)

Airing new episodes/ spoiler warning

For Album 56 should we take off the spoiler warning after each episode airs, or only after all of them air? Skylerbuck 17:26, 5 October 2012 (MDT)

we have traditionally removed the warning after each episode airs along with making a news post about it Reddo 17:44, 5 October 2012 (MDT)

Actors Picks episode list

The list of episodes included in this album are on Tyndale's website, but I don't know how to add episodes to the page. Peachey Keen (talk) 14:44, 28 November 2012 (MST)

I think maybe you have to add the album to the episode page? I'll try that later when I have time. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 12:00, 30 November 2012 (MST)

I already did, sorry I forgot to mention it it is now called: Our Favorites: Actor's Picks. Skylerbuck (talk) 14:29, 30 November 2012 (MST)

New Logo Contest 2012/2013

Will we be holding another logo contest this year? It's usually started by now. I could help get the contest together if needed. - Eugene [talk] 19:05, 8 December 2012 (MST)

I was thinking we shouldn't do it this year as the turn out last year wasn't the greatest, but if people want it we could. Reddo (talk) 13:31, 9 December 2012 (MST)

Susan and Charles VanHorn

It says here and here that Susan and Charles Vanhorn are siblings; I don't think there's any indication of that. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 14:25, 12 December 2012 (MST)

I don't recall them being siblings although chances are there is some sort of relation between them. Unless someone can give a quote I think we should replace it with "... may be related to .... although it is currently unknown" Reddo (talk) 18:43, 12 December 2012 (MST)

The Jimmy Barclay Show

Hey, I just created The Jimmy Barclay Show page. Check it out here The_Jimmy_Barclay_Show and tell me what you think.

I would like some feedback but I think its a good write-up but I just don't know if it warrants a page. I think it should be merged as a part of KYDS Radio. Overall good write-up. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 19:17, 23 December 2012 (MST)

Thanks! -Sunnys <BIBLE|-- (talk) 20:40, 25 December 2012 (MST)

Mobile App/Website

I think we should add either a mobile app, for like Iphones and androids, blackberries, things like that, or when AIO Wiki detects that they're using a phone, it automatically switches to a mobile website. We should probably do the second thing, mobile website. 'Cause a lot of people don't want to, say, have to download an app just to see how many episodes Whit has been in. What do you think? -Sunnys <BIBLE|-- (talk) 12:01, 30 December 2012 (MST)

That would be cool, but in my opinion I like the full Site feel, but I don't think you can add mobile on this type of wiki. Skylerbuck (talk) 13:41, 30 December 2012 (MST)
Hmm... Should we ask Reddo? -Sunnys <BIBLE|-- (talk) 16:28, 30 December 2012 (MST)
I've enabled the mobile front end for the site let me know if there's anything else we should change for it Reddo (talk) 08:41, 31 December 2012 (MST)
I like it, but there is no homepage, could we make one, and should we announce it in the news on the front page? And it works on ios by the way. Skylerbuck (talk) 09:16, 31 December 2012 (MST)
So, how's it going? Is it ready? Is it because of me we now have a mobile site? -Sunnys <BIBLE|-- (talk) 13:32, 31 December 2012 (MST)
Sunnys:It is ready except for a few adjustments but at the bottom of the home page it says "mobile view" click there.

Reddo: Could we make an easier way to see the mobile view option, and the front page still has nothing on Mobile, but it's ok. Sunnys: All Reddo did was enable it, so you gave us the idea, and by the way you can't edit in mobile mode. Skylerbuck (talk) 13:47, 31 December 2012 (MST)

Creating User Page

How do you create a user page??

Userboxes

HOw do you put in userboxes? Thanks. -Sunnys <BIBLE|-- (talk) 15:09, 31 December 2012 (MST)

Click here for a list: http://www.aiowiki.com/wiki/Userboxes. Click on one it will direct you to a new page. On that new page click "edit", the words on the page are for the Userboxes and copy and paste them, if you want to I could help you or do it for you. Skylerbuck (talk) 15:31, 31 December 2012 (MST)

List of Episode Goofs

Please don't take any action, yet, this is simply an idea. First off, do we want a list of Goofs? (i think it is okay) Therefore, if we do are we going to link it to each episode that has a section. Making

[[Goofs]]

to link to such list. Thoughts? Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 21:30, 1 January 2013 (MST)

We could do something similar to the quotes template and then include all the goofs on one page as well as on the episode pages Reddo (talk) 23:02, 1 January 2013 (MST)

I clicked Random page and found this. I've been working on it since. Is that okay? AIOIA (talk) 19:42, 2 January 2013 (MST)

Spell Check

Should we have spell check for editing? I miss spell things a lot and a spell check would help. Just a thought. AIOIA (talk) 19:51, 2 January 2013 (MST)

The best way to do that would be on your computer by using a different browser, I use Chrome and it has spell check built in but many other modern browsers have it built in too. Reddo (talk) 06:39, 3 January 2013 (MST)
