  1. Coppermind or Coppercloud

    because when the logo was designed we didn't have the Feruchemical symbols, and nobody has given us a better logo since.
  2. Category Discussion

    don't worry, I understand what you mean
  3. Help Pages

    I can see the appeal of your template, but I also think it's worth having either a standard navbox or something like wikipedias 'lists of articles on topic' that they sometimes have as or below the infobox. that lists all the important help articles. or maybe a top-of-the-page 'toc' like banner kinda thing.... *strokes chin in thought* Edit: I went ahead and just tried it out... then have added it to the tops of pages
  4. Making coppermind mobile friendly

    having to maintain two separate frontends is probably too much to ask... given that it's already kinda fiddly to keep mediawiki itself up to date, and given that the skin should already be fairly adaptive to mobile screens I'm probably not going to get around to putting effort into trying this out,....
  5. Help Pages

    watch out, Eric likes discussing categorisation in excruciating detail XD
  6. Vorin Numerals?

    if it's a subsection of the Glyphs page, it can be 'Numerals' ? I'm happy with that. maybe add a redirect [[glyph numerals]] -> [[Glyphs#Numerals]] ?
  7. SVG file upload help

    They get somewhat aggressively cached, please make sure to purge that page's cache when you upload a new file. it looks fine to me tbh. And afaik extracting images is fair use (and hopefully they'll eventually be uploaded to Brandon's site) thanks for doing the sketching and uploading!
  8. Astronomy categories

    the question is if we want to group all space things together as a 'type' over grouping the cosmere (or other series specific) space things together. I kinda see the latter being more useful compared to the more-generic categories?
  9. Star Systems

    I'd still rather have the picture front and center, and yeah the 1024px is just chosen because of my screen, I wanted 100% but it didn't accept that.
  10. Star Systems

    I personally would prefer the pictures to 'fill the page' rather than being a thing you have to click thru (twice) to look at in detail.
  11. Star Systems

    please upload the files from Brandon's site if you have need of them, it's considered fair use and it's good to have them for pages. the only thing iirc there's wob for Greater Roshar being that system's name? unless that's WoB that's been subsumed by published stories. otherwise I'm fine with using Khriss's names for pages,
  12. White Sand

    if you've read through the article and think everything that could possibly be said is there, change it to {{complete}}. {{stub}} has an obvious lower bound and a subjective upper bound before becoming either {{good}} or {{partial}} ... which I can't quite remember the difference between right now. most articles go {{stub}} -> {{partial}} -> {{complete}} because we only reintroduced the idea of {{good}} recently but I've forgotten why XD. you should feel free to update them but we might revert your changes fairly quickly? but yeah they're all applied vaguely and subjectively but ?
  13. Wiki Editing 101?

    change as much as you feel up to changing, it's a wiki we can always change things back. if you really don't feel up to changing what's there you can copy the article/passage to somewhere under your userpage and improve it there before merging it back or w/e
  14. Wiki Editing 101?

    our help pages were written mostly by people very familiar with how wikis work (aka me mostly, plus some from the other staff). please feel free to edit the help pages adding in anything you discover that's missing from them? the article formats and rules as to what templates/categories etc are stuff we've been meaning to work on defining more, but haven't had much time for them. I'm always around to be asked questions about this stuff btw
  15. I'd prefer only one infobox on each page. two solutions would be to manually add the 'building' categories to the page or have a stub/redirect/etc kinda page for the building infobox. I think I'd prefer the former but I'm easy tbh. It might be worth adding a link to category: sand masters in both the Diem and sand mastery pages (as a {{for}} header to one of the subsections?) as we've done on other group pages, to show membership of that group
