  • Hi, I just have a few notes for you about your edit on the Larfleeze comic pages.

    • First, when adding characters, you need to delete the " <br/> " tag. That tag spawns a break in the text, which is a placeholder for any character that were to go in that spot. Pretty much, when adding something under that heading, delete the tag instead of leaving it.
    • Appearances need templates. When you added characters, you linked them and left them. In order to be marked down as "appearing" in that issue, characters need the "appearance" template. For example, Larfleeze would be "{{a|[[Larfleeze (New Earth)|Larfleeze]]}} ".
    • Last (and this is minor), for an indent, I prefer to use ":*" instead of "::" . If I'm not mistaken, that's what most users tend to use. In my opinion, it makes coding a lot easier for new users if they see all the pages using the colon and asterisk instead of a double colon. But, again, that's more a unofficial preference.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask me or one of our admins. And, thanks for the help on the Larfleeze pages. That's a domain I seem to be stranded in all by myself. :P

    • Just a few addenda...

      • In the mark up an asterisk ( * ) at the sart of a line generates a bulleted point. The mark up really does not need a <br> or <br /> in that line, or the preceding one for that matter. It automatically reads the next line as a new line.
      • {{a}} should be used only if the character actually appears in the story. And only in the appearance list. If the character is assumed to be acting behind the scenes, {{BTS}} should be used. And if the character is just mentioned then {{Mentioned}} should be used. The can be used after a link or to wrap a link as Haroldrocks explained for a.
      • Indents can be a bit more of a pain with bulleted lists. Any such list needs to start with a line beginning with a single asterisk. Following lined can be indented one level either by adding colons or additional asterisks. so the second line would start with :* or **. The mark up does read those differently. It sees :* as starting a new list and ** as contusion the current list. This affects indent depth, line spacing, and how some text-to-voice software translate the text. Both ways are used, but it should be consistent in the article.
        The pain is a situation like this - getting multiple paragraphs in a bulleted items to line up and not break the bulleting structure. <br> works, but I tend to ad a "hidden blank line for ease of reading in editing moe. I do that by adding <!-- after the <br>, adding two lines, then -->before the next paragraph.
