Sub-templates to block error messages

We want error messages. Error messages are good. They let us know when something's not right. If you create sub-templates to suppress the appearance of error messages, we might never notice that there's an error occurring. --Belthazar451 12:57, 3 April 2014 (PDT)

The error message(s) in question were strictly for the missing sub-templates. In other words, those specific error messages were serving no useful function. Furthermore, by adding those two sub-templates, we instead get the "missing file" error message (if any), which in this case *IS* a good thing, since we *do* need the image files for the new furniture items! ;-)
Thanks, though. Appreciate the feedback, and the chance to explain my reasoning. -- Franklincain (t/c) 14:13, 3 April 2014 (PDT)

"Familiars" template

Sorry about that, I haven't done many wiki edits and didn't realize that editing the template changed it for everyone - not just for the pages in question. The people whose pages I was setting up had asked me to take off the 'won' part of Familiars Won, because they hadn't actually -won- the familiars.. they'd purchased, traded, or earned them from boxes.

In that case, you should use the "my familiars" template (instead of the default "familiars" parameters in the pirate info-box template). Good luck! -- Franklincain (t/c) 01:57, 14 April 2014 (PDT)

User talk archive

You probably noticed this already but there's currently no such YPPedia namespace as "User talk archive". Perhaps User_talk_archive:Franklincain could be moved to User_talk:Franklincain/Archive? -- Faulkston 10:53, 26 April 2014 (PDT)

I wanted a file-name for the archive of my user-talk page. Unfortunately, the file-name I originally chose ("User_talk:Franklincain/archive") also shows up as the "talk" page for my personal notes archive, which is *not* something I wanted to happen. Hence, the name change. Thanks, any way. -- Franklincain (t/c) 00:25, 27 April 2014 (PDT)
(Update)... Went ahead and moved my user-talk's archive (again), to the file-name you suggested. Thanks. -- Franklincain (t/c) 01:06, 27 April 2014 (PDT)
I see what you mean. Your solution to rename your notes archive to User:Franklincain/Notes/Archive rather than User:Franklincain/Archive works reasonably well within the existing YPPedia framework. -- Faulkston 10:01, 27 April 2014 (PDT)
Last night (err, this morning, really early?), I (FINALLY!!!) figured out a solution for my archive of my "user talk" page. This is the last of the file-name changes. (I PROMISE!)  :-P
Thanks!  ;-)

removing surplus line-breaks

Let's not go editing articles purely to add or remove line-breaks. If you're going to go through them all and change the heading levels again (though I don't really think even that's necessary) you can do it then at the same time, but seriously, there's less than no reason to make a special edit just to play with line-breaks. You've already been cautioned about that before. --Belthazar451 16:00, 24 May 2014 (PDT)

I think you're referring to this past message, where I was adding extra line-breaks (to improve readability in the raw code). And I'm willing to wait, until we've decided how (or if) to add in supra-headings for the years into Ice_Ocean_changelog. -- Franklincain (t/c) 16:07, 24 May 2014 (PDT)


Since you have an ongoing problem with my conduct here on YPPedia, I strongly suggest that you read the instructions here on Wikipedia and open an RFC/U on my conduct here on YPPedia in order that we can clear the air and resolve this dispute between us. Otherwise you will just continue having problems with me. Chupchup 11:52, 5 August 2014 (PDT)

If you choose to ignore me, and/or fail to file an RFC/U against me, then I shall be forced to file one on you, and you may not enjoy the outcome. So it's up to you. Chupchup 12:36, 5 August 2014 (PDT)
Actually, I've not been ignoring you. I've been responding to your thread on the forums. -- Franklincain (t/c) 12:40, 5 August 2014 (PDT)
