Nice job on all the images.  ;) — KC 19:30, 17 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you :), nice with the light/dark colour templates, by the way. Darn it, really feels messy with all images uncategorized. :\ ~FireFly tc 19:32, 17 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's a goal. You wouldn't want to have nothing to do here, would you? =] — KC 19:39, 17 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's true! :) ~FireFly tc 19:40, 17 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I should really learn how to code wikibots... I just figured I want all the Category:Images/Screenshots stuff in Category:Images/Screenshots/Maps, but I'm not going to do that by hand. >.< ~FireFly tc 19:59, 17 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ouch. Don't feel too bad, I don't know a thing about using bots, either... =( Anyway, I split up the unit entry code into a header, body, and footer on my sandbox page if you want to take a look. — KC 20:05, 17 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's all right. Also, noticed I forgot some terrains, so I'll upload them now. The header/body/footer part looks great! I say go for it, looks much better than mine. ~FireFly tc 20:12, 17 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Call it a learning experience. ^_^ I updated the table pieces, just have to test them out... — KC 20:14, 17 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wow, you've really been working on those images while I was away! I know that we're starting to accumulate some unused images/pages/etc, so I'm working on a template that categorizes anything to Category:Candidates for deletion. Just FYI. =) — KC 19:56, 19 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah, it looked so messy… :P and that sounds really good. However, I think it's good if a lot of the unused images stay on the wiki, like all the CO artwork we have atm, since it's a great resource. But you're right that there certainly are some of unneeded pictures here too, and it's good to keep it clean! :D ~FireFly tc 20:11, 19 June 2010 (UTC) (by the way, trying to get a wikibot working, I hope it'll do its first [real] edit soon!)Reply[reply]
We certainly don't have to purge the wiki of all unused images, but I had uploaded a shot of the Battalion Wars 1 boxart as a .jpg, but had to clean it up and re-upload as a .png, so I'd put the template on something like that, for example. Go for it, I have no idea how to create/use/edit a wikibot, all I know is that Bulbapedia's BulbaBot seemed to do it's own agenda pretty well. If you can do it, good luck to ya! =] — KC 20:25, 19 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unitlist templates[edit source]

Hey, how did you get the Vision heading to quit acting up before? I've been trying to rework the unitlist templates, but the Vision is still giving me a tough time. I've condensed it about as much as I can (I think...), so right now the shorter list would look like:

Bomber-small.png Bomber

instead of this:


Bomber-small.png Bomber
A colored background indicates a unit that was introduced in this game.

I don't know why the unit heading is so tall, that's another thing that's bugging me. This is starting to give me a headache... =( But if you've got any ideas to help out, I'm happy to hear them. Thanks! — KC 07:20, 24 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
