It looks like you've likely eliminated all examples of the voting mechanic. As I said, I would kinda like it back for my leg of it here. Can you please provide the framing for how that's supposed to work along with a few example options? I can fill those in myself later. Jemini (talk) 06:45, 13 February 2020 (CET)


You can find examples of how to make polls on this page Format_Rules/Polls. You might want to mention that the polls sometimes need one to refresh the page for them to work properly. --Elerneron (talk) 15:21, 13 February 2020 (CET)


Additionally, you change from past tense to present tense halfway through the page; and change from first person to second person. This particular branch of PIP is written in first person, past tense because Lathan is the only one who could realistically report on himself. Having him find the "Agency" and make himself a subject of their investigations was going to be something I added to the story later on. You can take things where you want to, of course. I just wanted you to know where I was coming from when I wrote what I did. --Elerneron (talk) 15:28, 13 February 2020 (CET)

I was aware of and saw it was in past tense, 1st person. So, I was trying to keep it to the same format, but I'm just in the habit of writing present tense 2nd person and seem to have reverted to it without realizing while I was in the middle of writing. I will correct it when I have a little bit more time. Jemini (talk) 22:24, 13 February 2020 (CET)

The problem is that you copied the coding for the example that I use to show the code without making a poll. You just needed to eliminate the <pre></pre> element from the code. --Elerneron (talk) 17:49, 14 February 2020 (CET)
