Hi all! I don't really plan on sticking around, just planning on helping this wiki clean up, which it needs help with.

  • Spotlight
    • 1/5 of the 2,937 articles would be 587 pages, there are 772 stub pages.
  • You
    • Needs to change to Mario/Luigi/Whoever is the main character
  • Glitz Pit
    • Clearly not in an active state, should just close down for the time being.
  • Reviews
    • Should have better formatting in my opinion
  • Polls
    • It works. If it ain't broke, don't break it.
  • Main page
    • Some css to kill the header
    • Needs a major revamp
  • Oasis
    • Needs a new skin BADLY
  • Monobook
    • No offense, but do you really want to use this skin that I hardly put any effort into?
  • Classes
    • Can I add in some classes to get more features onto pages?

So yeah, talk about those and yeah. Just a few suggestions. Cheers, zzi 22:11, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

Spotlight

  • Really needs to happen if you want to get a larger userbase. Jazzi 22:15, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
As much as it would be welcomed, I don't really think a spotlight does much for a wiki. I've been on several wikis with spotlights and haven't gotten anywhere with new users because of a spotlight. Though, yes, a little advertising would, as I said, be quite welcomed since we need to have better reach than our "competition." — Wattz2000 00:05, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

"You" in articles

  • It makes the pages look better if it doesn't have "You" in it. Jazzi 22:15, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
Of course. I think this was brought up before, however, yeah, haven't gotten much progress on this. Personally, I blame the more inexperienced users who shove off whatever crap in their articles they can think of. But, anyway, yeah, we should really get on this. — Wattz2000 00:05, June 6, 2012 (UTC)
Good thing I am usually on it. Conker's Bad Fur Day (Talk|Contribs|Edits) 00:24, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

Glitz Pit

  • Either someone takes what I did and do it properly or it should go. I personally think it just needs to go. It's not doing any good. Jazzi 22:15, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
At this point in time, I don't think we have a large/active/whatever enough community to fully use the Glitz Pit anymore. I say we should keep the archives and close the project, that way we can always start it up again if a need does arise. — Wattz2000 00:05, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

Reviews

  • They're absolutely great, just need formatting. Jazzi 22:15, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
Personally, I think that if we can get more of the community, not just the admins and veteran users that have done them, then these can get actually prominent. I also have some thoughts on having some sort of way to apply for reviews and such – y'know, just a way to filter out horrible reviews. — Wattz2000 00:05, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

Polls

  • Great idea, and it'll work great. Already appears to be doing so. Jazzi 22:15, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, looks good, just needs to be updated more often, in my opinion. However, from what I see, it breaks the main page as shown here. — Wattz2000 00:05, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

Main Page

  • I can has keyhual? (Can I fix it?) Jazzi 22:15, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
I think a revamp of the page is in order sometime soon. The page looks kinda busy and quite messy. — Wattz2000 00:05, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

Oasis

  • Skin needs fixing. That background... Jazzi 22:15, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
Though I haven't used oasis in nearly a year now, I do think that a better skin should be made sooner rather than later since that's what the most users around here will see, most likely. I think this is a matter that should really be brought to RR and the rest of the administration. Personally, I think that a skin that coincides with a new monobook theme would be a neat idea too. And if we did do both now, we could do it much more easily than doing one now and one a few months down the line. — Wattz2000 00:05, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

Monobook

  • Please, if there's anything I can do here, just let me fix this theme, I'm ashamed to have it under my name. Jazzi 22:15, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
Like I said about the Oasis skin above, I think that we should have a skin for monobook that coincides with an oasis skin. In addition, also like I said above, I think that this should be worked on alongside an oasis skin. I, personally, say we should have a "brainstorming" session or a rough draft of any ideas for a new skin. — Wattz2000 00:05, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

Classes

  • I can add some in easily, and it'll make it look nicer. There'll have to be major main page classes. Jazzi 17:17, June 23, 2012 (UTC)
You mean table classes and stuff? The kind defined in the .css pages? The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 17:42, June 23, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, like that. The css classes. Of course, it'll go into Common.css first, and then we can import it to Wikia.css. Jazzi 18:31, June 23, 2012 (UTC)
Hrm... What kinds should we have though? The main page boxes probably should have their own classes, what else? The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 18:48, June 23, 2012 (UTC)
