Please be aware that you have no authority on this wiki to advertise for affiliates, or to run applications for them. These matters are for the Bureaucrats and administrators to handle. If you have a suggestion regarding affiliation, feel free to float it in the forums. Until then, do not attempt to recreate these pages. Do not attempt to pass yourself off as one of this site's administrators and link to email addresses that have absolutely nothing to do with this site. Thank you for your cooperation. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 00:50, November 18, 2010 (UTC)
- Firstly, I apologise if my previous message seemed overly blunt. With the increase in traffic on the wiki due to the giveaway, the local admin team is being very watchful of all new page creations to ensure that the standards of this wiki are not compromised, as I'm sure you can understand. We operate under several policies here which have been defined and ratified by community consensus, and our local admin team is very capable. I did mention developing affiliates to Kacie, and was looking to obtain contact details so that we can capitalise on any contacts she had already made in setting up the giveaway since, once the offer is concluded, the local admins will be the ones to continue the affiliation system as I would assume that the Staff involved would move on to other projects. I understand that your intentions were good in this regard, and I thank you for your help; however, some discussion before creating the affiliate pages would have been appreciated.
- I have a few ideas on how to advertise affiliates, including main page links and a dedicated page (which would be in the Harry Potter Wiki namespace rather than the main namespace). There is also a dedicated email address available to use which I registered a while ago for just such an eventuality as I am exploring ways to better promote the site and increase our visibility. Now, if you have already made contacts with other HP sites and secured some type of affiliation agreement, then I would be slightly mad to turn down the help. Perhaps we could discuss the exact details over email rather than talk pages; I have an account linked to my profile. Regards - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 10:50, November 18, 2010 (UTC)
- Hi Babyjabba, I saw your post on Cav's talk page. I'm not sure if he'll be around this weekend, so I'd say you can make an Affiliates page in the Harry Potter Wiki: namespace, like at Harry Potter Wiki:Affiliates. We can link to it on the main page and set up a small section on the main page with links to the Affiliates' sites. Let me know what you think. Cheers, Grunny (talk) 01:41, November 21, 2010 (UTC)
i agree yes but he didnt give me an explanation before he blocked me, it still isn't the fair thing to do. and i have an unalienable rite to edit that page. when i mean unalienable i don't mean rite given to me by god, im not religious just right that shouldn't be taken away from me. it isn't canon and i know i should cite the Rowling interview, but i can't.
RE: FYI Edit
Hi Babyjabba. As you said, our main page is voted on here as we have our own style that is different from other wikis, and we are base our designs on discussions among our members. But I personally don't mind if you guys take a shot at redoing it for the duration of the giveaway, as long as we can revert back to our own afterward. I'm sure the other admins will chime in with their thoughts when they're round. We'll have discussions after the giveaway on which changes we would like to implement permanently. :) Cheers, Grunny (talk) 00:45, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
RE: Checkin in! Edit
Main Page Edit
Our next changeover in our Featured content is monday, and I'd like to go ahead and set our Main Page back to its regular schedule and configuration. I'll leave the Slider and Affiliates in place though. - Nick O'Demus 07:10, December 5, 2010 (UTC)
Hey, I'm trying to make a custom infobox on the Hogwarts Roleplay Wiki, and in the past I haven't had problems, but for some reason, there is something off in all the html, and I can't for the life of me figure out where I've made a mistake, I've been starting at all the css stuff for an hour now and my eyes are bugging out of my head, I don't know if that's something you're good at, or if you know someone that could just look over it and figure out where I've gone wrong? Oh, yea, here is the link to the infobox http://hogwartsrpg.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Administrator_infobox --BachLynn(Accio!) 18:10, March 24, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, how do I make the infobox header's look different, like the way the font appears in the heading titles? Also, I changed the background colour of the infoboxes, but now I want to change it again and I can't remember for the life of me where I went to change that. --BachLynn(Accio!) 18:46, March 24, 2011 (UTC)
