If you want to use a tag to display code use <nowiki> with the <code> tag. Click edit to see how I did this. --Elerneron (talk) 17:07, 21 October 2018 (CEST)

Unfortunately, I don't know enough about coding to help you with that one. It was actually Elerneron who designed the UI for Life Hacks. It was originally his project to start with. I just learned how to use what he had already created. (Actually, it was my first exposure to even this mild level of coding, so it was basically a good shallow-end introduction for me.) Anyway, in order to get that sorta thing handled, you are going to have to contact Elerneron. Jemini (talk) 20:47, 14 February 2019 (CET)

Hey, thanks for adding the pics over on that branch of Life Hacks. That actually is pretty darn helpful. Jemini (talk) 22:11, 22 April 2019 (CEST)

Feedback appreciated

Hello there, I've just made a suggestion that I hope would help with user retention and activity but due to its location I'm not sure enough users will see it to give a feedback.

It'd be great if you could give it at least a cursory glance. If the idea sounds stupid feel free to say so, I'm hoping we can brainstorm something better out of what I wrote. Thanks.

CF Pictures

When uploading images, they will not appear on a category page naturally by naming them. In the Format Rules section I mention doing so by uploading the image, then editing the file page to add the category; but you can also add the category under Summary when uploading. Additionally, to keep everything fitting nicely I have been editing the images to make them square and 300x300px to keep everything consistent. I'll do so with your alternative pictures this weekend. If you haven't added the category by then I will do so. Thanks for sharing these. I'm sure they'll come in handy. To bad there isn't a pregnant looking one . . . I could always Photoshop one, but who has the time. Thanks again. --Elerneron (talk) 12:59, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

Disciplinary Action storylines

Hey, since you seem to be making a lot of requests these days on Disciplinary Action and seem to have at least some creative ability yourself, I was wondering if I might ask you for a little help. We still need to fill out character bios for several characters. I realized that a lot of the storylines were actually getting sparked off the bios rather than the other way around (characters being added when needed and the bios fitting the role they played.) Unfortunately, I have a difficult time just coming up with character bios on the spot, especially in those numbers.

So, I was wondering if you might be able to help out in that area. Even if you can't come up with something for the bio, just adding a picture would help a LOT. My creative juices can easily trigger off of a picture, and I think it is the lack of any pictures that might be holding me back on filling out the bios myself. (Of course, that trick doesn't work quite as well if I pull up the picture myself.) Jemini (talk) 22:32, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Well, giving her the reproductive system of a rabbit seems a little over the top, but it does bring up an amusing memory of when Elerneron and I were first working out her profile. (The character that used that picture was actually one that I introduced.) The picture now is actually edited, the original actually had a carrot in the gun holster at her hip for some strange reason. Makes it really ironic that someone unrelated should come along and fit the same image to a woman who has a reproductive system that works the same way as a rabbit's for some strange reason. That fact alone makes me half tempted to keep it as is despite the fact that it's way out there with any humanoid that's not an anthropomorphized rabbit. Jemini (talk) 06:23, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Yeah, we need more families that are headed by people not associated with the school. So far, the majority of the families have teachers or other school staff in them. Anyway, I guess that explains the carrot from before, and thus making it even more tempting to keep the rabbit's reproductive system. (Even though the stickler for details in me knows I should probably be objecting to it, lol.) Jemini (talk) 06:59, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Unfortunately I know of no way to display a previous version of a file without reverting that file. Sorry. Additionally the reason there was a carrot in the holster is that the picture source was supposed to be a humanized form of Lt. Judy Hopps from Zootopia. --Elerneron (talk) 15:37, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

It is a stance that makes sense, I think that ought to be the disposition of everyone in town to some degree or another. The issue with it though is that there are very few people who say stuff like that who actually realize the weight of taking a human life. As someone who works in one of the professions (legal, medical, and clergy,) I am a little more in touch with exactly what it takes, and her profile is one that would require her to have never met or seen the MC's face in order to contemplate murdering him. The second she encounters him in regards to Diya, her stomach for literal murder would completely collapse. (In other words, the content is perfectly acceptable, but the implementation might not be as serious as you might have been thinking.) If anything, her disposition toward child abuse and Shante would cause her to get closer to the MC. Jemini (talk) 03:30, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

EDIT: Changing her personality profile into something that WOULD be more along the lines of someone who has the stomach for murder is probably something I would prefer to avoid in this, that is a little too disruptive. Jemini (talk) 03:32, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

Well, fleeing sexual abuse at home would be something to be included in her bio. I can probably find a way to put it in for you. BTW, I added a new option to the Bevvy Fine line on what to do with her skirt that aligned more with what you were saying in the talk section. Took the liberty of moving your request to it since it was based off your comment anyway. Jemini (talk) 04:01, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

Reworked Allister's Bio, take a look and let me know what you think. Telgar (talk) 09:55, 6 March 2020 (PST)


Iknow that you're trying to be helpful, but the permissions for the story Uncanny Valley are Closed. This means that the only editing that is permitted on the story are those of the author, or modifications by staff (right now that's just me) to put it in line with the Format Rules. The way to handle Closed stories is to make suggestions to the author. Do not edit other people's closed stories without direct permission. --Elerneron (talk) 06:37, 31 March 2020 (CEST)

Qimakio set the number of pages directly rather than using the PAGESINCAT system. I assume that there are that many chapters, and he doesn't understand our system yet? We shall see as we move forward. --Elerneron (talk) 06:47, 31 March 2020 (CEST)

The Mods Site would be Vistarrr's purview, I suppose. I have nothing to do with it. As far as the gibberish members . . . if we get spambots again, I guess I'll have to figure another way to deal with them. The last solution hasn't been updated . . . so *crosses fingers+. --Elerneron (talk) 19:39, 8 April 2020 (CEST)
