Hey, looking at all the elements for Earth Editor, there isn't a table for them like for the Powder Game elements. Can someone make one?--Combak 23:55, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

You want such an infobox like Template:Infobox_PG_element? I can create one. You just need to tell me which rows this box should have, and if you want some special features ... --Justme2 12:08, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
Should I take the one off Sand, because yeah, there should be a template.
EDIT: How do you make a template?--Buggy793 15:39, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
No you should not use the Sand template. But you can create a new for Earth Editor and start by copying the code from the sand template and change it.
To actually create a template You just create a new page "Template:whatever" and start coding. The difficulty of writing a template can range from "totaly easy" to "difficult as hell" (In my opinion is is mainy due to the fact, that the MediaWiki systax is crappy designed). This is why I offered to do it for you. But if you want to do it on your own these three pages might help you to get into it:
On the other hand they might be a little bit too long and too detailed to get into it. I don't know if there is a better guide somewhere, maybe at [en.wikipedia.org en.wikipedia.org]. The Germans have a much more compact documentation about templates although they don't tell you everything. That's what I have used. But The most important thing is, you understand the following basics:
  • How to use a template?
  • What's about the <noinclude> and <includeonly> sections?
  • How do named and unamed parameters work? How du you set them if you use the template? How do you use them within the template?
  • How can you do some simple programming with these ParserFunctions?
Also some of the basic mechanisms of HTML and CSS (like "float" and table styles) might help you.

Well, OK, I wasn't exactly offering, I was just putting that as a side note... Meh. I'll :give it a shot. What should I put on the template? I was thinking:
  • State of Matter
  • Color
  • Flammable (even though there's only one so far)
  • Natural
  • Version implemented
  • Should we add spread? Water and Salt W. are the only things that spread sideways.
OK. Wish me good Luck. THE TEMPLATE CAN ALWAYS BE CHANGED!
EDIT:Well, tried, failed. Please, someone else do it...

Template:Infobox_EE_element should be ready to use now. I made an example at the talk page and at Water (Earth Editor). I didn't link the entries Flammable, Reactivity, Natural and Spread like in the Powder Game template, because those pages are currently only talking about Powder Game. Either we create all pages a second time with the extension " (Earth Editor)", or we make these articles refering both to Powder Game and Earth Editor. I would prefer the later, because there isn't that much difference between PG and EE, and all four pages are very short anyway. --Justme2 17:04, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Pretty darn ImportantEdit

I found some... vulgar language on this page. I won't be specific. See if there was someone who edited this page that wasn't using an account, wasn't well-known, or something of that sort. Ban him. Believe me. You don't want to know. --Buggy793 01:15, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm trying to keep track of this stuff. A good way to do this is going to "Recent Changes" and hidding logged in users like this: Special:Recentchanges/hideliu. At this page I click the (diff)-links or (last)-links for every new edit. You can immidiately see if somebody did something bad. If he did, you can have a look at the history to make it undone or see if somebody else has already used undo. I also click his IP to see all other changes he made. And I scan the the edits of new registered user to see if they are trustworthy, either by scanning Special:Recentchanges or for example by looking at their contributions (e.g: Special:Contributions/Justme2). --Justme2 12:55, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

OK, thanks. I'll remember that next time. --Buggy793 15:55, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
