Tell your "consultant" we're all quite happy with it, because I really think that we are. Heh, and somebody already added my userpage to the wiki. Thanks!

I did that, because the article was short and there was only one image.

I am a bit worried about the space available for that. And the costs. Maybe i am a little bit old fashioned but i have seen many a site die during my days on the intarwebs... Maybe it would be a good idea to restrict file hosting to wiki related files?

Is there a way to access the old content? Version history, old supplements, Dimmies vs Dungans, the REALLY old News pages that had content back from 2003, Or is it all lost?

Server space isn't the issue it used to be five or ten years ago, it might as well be infinite. The real worry is performance, where the site will start to chug if a million sites across the internet are referencing images hosted on the wiki or something.

The files are all still in the same places, they're just hard to get to. You can still find them with a google search. I want to move the BrikWars Versions links onto the wiki, probably along with any Other Brick Wargames that are still around, and make the wiki a more functionally integrated part of the site.

What if you just link from the supplements page (Needs to be mentioned in the header!!!) to the wiki?

It took a few tries and killing the entire forum for about 2 minutes, but I got them up there. They should also appear on the pro silver style if anyone uses that one...


Here are the new ones I made:

There are 11 in total starting with _0 ending with _10. If y'all make more I will add them.

Oh and I drew the Rainbow Dash so we don't have to worry about someone bitching that we stole that picture of her.

My Little Brikwars looks great!

don't forget the one I did on page 5.
I understand you don't want to use them all :)

There was 2 Carpeticus titles, that wasnt a double post.
The second mentions Pedonuker. The whole Warhead sees pedonukers everywhere joke.
