You kind of complain a lot. Maybe IVhorseman will come around and explain everything for you like he did for Armor. In the meantime, look at how things are done in existing pages (or on Wikipedia, since it's the same wiki code), and copy what you need to.

I wasn't sure about the uploading and hosting all the images locally part, but there didn't seem to be any way around it. In any case it'll cut down on broken links, and everybody's been wishing they could upload images here for ages anyway.

Not quite - besides having a forum account, you also have to be part of the "BrikThulhumanati" usergroup, so I can grant or rescind wiki access at will.

Also note that once you've uploaded an image to the wiki, you can turn around and post it into forum posts no problem. Although really, brickshelf or photobucket or something is probably still the better option.

I've added a wiki tag to the BBCodes to make it easier to link to wiki articles, like so: The Great Scythian Empire

Code: Select all
[wiki]The Great Scythian Empire[/wiki]

The homepage looks great! I especially like the randomly selected image at the top. Definitely worth the wait.

Awesome!

Maybe this means the next chapter of the 2010 rulebook is up too...

Nope.

Crap.


Still, new homepage looks pretty nice.

Normally this is where I'd say "no sucking up!" but it turns out I had someone else do most of the work, and she loves flattery, and also I think it's just about to be her birthday. So feel free to suck up as much as you want.

The text on the right bleeds down over the divider.
Happy birthday!



Looks like you merged a bunch of news items from a previous site.
Entries from 2006 have code on the page.
