Work that should be done on the wiki.

28 Oct 2016, 12:32

What I'd like to see done is there be templates for all the prototypes with more than one release. I also think we should make categories for all the zip files and iso. We don't have to get fancy like Sonic Retro. We could just have [[Category:Images]] and [[Category:Prototype Files]] or something.

http://hiddenpalace.org/Batman_(Later_Prototype)

You can see the template on the bottom of that page. You can find the template here:

http://hiddenpalace.org/Template:Batman_(1989/90)

It is actually based off the older template that sonic retro used to use. So it's perfect for our purposes. Easy to edit and won't have to use any wiki addons to get it to work.

Yeah, good idea. I have had this planned as a TODO. I think I can autogenerate these by the way, I'll try doing something about it over the weekend to make your job easier.

Yeah, if you can that'd be great. Then I could focus on other things.

Dunno if you saw it, but this is the template I made for one of your qa archive prototype archive

http://hiddenpalace.org/Template:101_Dalmatians

If you can, you should program your autocomplete program to do something like that. I tried making one like the Batman template and it looked terrible. I found the word prototype to be redundant and also the year. I also removed the name of the proto from the template cause that would have been redundant too. As you can see the template looks alot better now than it could have.

Yeah I saw. Check this out: http://hiddenpalace.org/101_Dalmatians_(Aug_14,_1996_prototype)

It's now autogenerated so you only have to put {{Navbox prototype|101 Dalmatians}} at the bottom of the page, you don't even have to make any new templates.

I'd rather not split the navbox by month, it gets too big this way.

I tried to add your template here and nothing showed up:

http://hiddenpalace.org/Batman_(Older_Beta)

Maybe your template can't handle protos with no date reference in them? Or is your template only set to work on 101 dalmations? Is there a way to autopaste the template on the bottom of all pages with more than one game in it's category?

Edit: I did add it here http://hiddenpalace.org/ATP_Tour_Championship_Tennis_(Aug_2,_1994_prototype)and it showed up fine. I'll wait on adding more till you reply.

I see the problem now, I have the builddates for those as Unknown. Either we have to add unknown as a known builddate or you have to give me a builddate to add if I don't know the builddate.

I'll try to figure out auto adding. The template can probably be put everywhere and I can specify in the template itself that it should not display itself if there's only one prototype of a given game.

As for things without dates, it's a limitation of Semantic MediaWiki but I have an idea on how to fix it. I'll do it tonight. Also, don't put "Unknown" into fields, it messes with the data types, just leave them blank if you don't know.

Man why didn't sonic retro staff figure out all this auto add stuff. They been brute forcing everything. So wikipedia ain't the only one with bots.

I see you worked on the wiki more. That batman template finally works good. You can delete the old one.

Ok, so you quietly added all the genesis templates then? I didn't see any edits on the pages themselves but the genesis protos seem to all have the prototype template. Some of the sega saturn games don't have it tho. I didn't check other systems. But the genesis protos I checked all had them.

I'm mass adding it, not finished yet. The commits are marked as bot revisions so that's why you're not seeing them.

Hows the work coming? How far along are you and what do you have left to do?

I created wiki articles for both Gauntlet DS releases:

http://hiddenpalace.org/Gauntlet_(100%25_Complete_Nintendo_DS_prototype)
http://hiddenpalace.org/Gauntlet_(Nintendo_DS_demo)

The complete article should have a small c in Complete so if you could first delete the complete redirect i accidently created and then move the Complete to complete that'd be appreciated. I can't delete articles otherwise I'd do it myself.

Also, I created those articles and added those templates that you're supposed to add to it but nothing shows on the bottom to navigate between the two. I'm not sure if they have to be created somehow. I thought they didn't have to be anymore.

Hey MathUser, can you put up the Castlevania SoTN E3 proto on the wiki again? We had to revert to a slightly old backup due to disk errors on the server, so we don't have the article and the download anymore...

We moved to a new server and had to restore from a backup that was a day older than current (because the disks we were moving from died during the move, but fortunately we keep decent backups), so we lost a few forum posts and wiki changes from about one day. Everything else was successfully restored. 

The changes that were lost are listed below. Fortunately they are contained to pretty much two articles:

Well, I can recreate what I had in that SOTN article, but that other guy is gonna have to add the dump date and iso tho. I had a hard time getting the proto and when I tried to upload it failed.

Edit: Does this mean the server time will be correct now at least?
