Welcome to Wikicities! Thanks for all your edits and images. Angela (talk) 05:03, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for your nice welcome! :) «Rainer» 07:29, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Hey, Rainer, nice work on the Main Page! I guess we should expand it later on, but anyway, good job again! :) The Chosen One (Choose me!) 19:32, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Thanks! «Rainer» 06:28, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I'm inviting you to a group discussion on Saturday, July 30 at 22:00 UTC (maybe July 31 in your time zone) at the comm portal. It'd be great if you could come, as there are only six of us actively working here. :) Thanks. The Chosen One (Choose me!) 15:27, 28 Jul 2005 (UTC)

That time would be fine for me (9am Sunday). Maybe we could have the discussion on a specially created IRC channel, that might work better? «Rainer» 05:58, 29 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Don't know if that'd work for me, but let's try it. The Chosen One (Choose me!) 09:56, 29 Jul 2005 (UTC)

You online? We have a meeting ongoing. The Chosen One (Choose me!) 22:41, 30 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I'm really sorry I couldn't make it, something came up and I couldn't attend the meeting. «Rainer» 06:19, 31 Jul 2005 (UTC)
It's all right, forget it. Anyway, it was just Hermione and me and she had a server problem, I think, so I postponed for indefinite time. When could you attend? The Chosen One (Choose me!) 10:39, 31 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Main Page Design

Hey Rainer, I think your main page design is looking great, very professional. Keep up the good work! - Vostok 11:56, 4 Jan 2006 (UTC)

I think so, too (but are you sure you can't include the torches? :( Pity). Do you think a name change is appropriate, too? The Chosen One (Choose me!) 15:21, 4 Jan 2006 (UTC)
Thanks! It's pretty much finished, but I think it looks a little too plain (too much grey!). I'm going to try different colours again. Chosen One; I might be able to include the fire torches, I'll have a go at it. I've posted my thoughts on a name change here. «Rainer» 08:22, 5 Jan 2006 (UTC)
The newer version is more appealing. Perhaps we could use some more red and gold(?) for Gryffindor, or incorporate the Hogwarts logo. The Chosen One (Choose me!) 05:53, 6 Jan 2006 (UTC)
For design 3, I tried using the Hogwarts house colours for each box (Red, Blue, Yellow Green). I don't think it looks very good, though... «Rainer» 05:17, 11 Jan 2006 (UTC)
I think design 3 has definite potential. I think it would great if the background colours were a lot lighter, so as to create a bigger contrast with the text. I'd suggest FFECEC for the top light red strip, FFF8E6 for the yellow, EAEAFC for blue, F3E8E8 for the dark red and E4F3DD for green. It might make it a bit pastel-y though... - Vostok 12:40, 13 Jan 2006 (UTC)
Those colours actually look pretty good. I had to make the

border colours lighter + brighter, but otherwise they worked great. «Rainer» 10:20, 14 Jan 2006 (UTC)

  • I really like designs 3 and 4. I agree with Chosen one: the torches are cool. However it looks a lot more professional and appealing without the black background. Good job!Padme829 04:38, 16 Jan 2006 (UTC)Padme829
Yes, I have to admit, 3 and 4 look really good. Though I really liked the torches. *sigh* Well, we can't have everything, can we? Disgruntled House Elf (...)
You're free to try and include the torches in one of my designs y'know (just copy the code and make it on another page). I did try, though, but there really wasn't anywhere to put them with the "5-box" design, without it looking weird. I plan on making a Community portal page too, so we might have the torches somewhere after all :) ! «Rainer» 13:52, 17 Jan 2006 (UTC)
Torched community portal doesn't really look good. Might just place it on user page. :) IMO, Main Page should have HP related logo or something similar. Also, will add edit link on stub and to-do list so they can be updated regularly. Nice work! Perhaps should start voting for new main page design. The Chosen One (Choose me!) 13:11, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
The torches actually looked pretty good though, except for the black area around the flames. I'm going to make a brand new secondary Main Page design sometime soon as well, because I've really only done one design, all we've bene fiddling with are the colours. And also, I don't think we need an edit link there for that template, because at the bottom of that very template is an edit link for each template. «Rainer» 02:35, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

Do you think we're all set to change the MP? More and more users (meaning two) are clamoring for a redesign. Btw, nice job on the CP! Even the "create article" thing looks great! The Chosen One (Choose me!) 20:36, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Hm... I'd like to try and make another design as well (I'll start tonight) - I've only truly done one - and see which is best. «Rainer» 23:14, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Great job on the new designs. *gives props*. Design 4 is the best. --Alpha Fire 21:11, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

Hey Rainer, nice new user page, I'm just curious about how you changed it with that vandalism proof thing on. You don't have to tell me, I was just curious.--Daniel Omy talk. 18:08, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

I guess you mean new main page ;). Anyway, it's because the new Main Page uses templates for each section. For example, the links section is located at Template:Main Page Links. The templates are currently unprotected, so I am able to edit them. (I don't think we need to protect the templates, at another popular wiki we used unprotected templates and I don't they ever got vandalised.) «Rainer» 06:35, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
