Unable to log into the Yppedia...

Ahoy Adrielle! You cannot log into your old account because it has an underscore in it; there is a bug which does not allow you to log onto the yppedia with any odd symbols, it will just give you the wrong password dialogue. ~Terrify

Yes, it is a conspiracy... /me looks around suspiciously... lol Adrielle =) 23:21, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Image names

Ahoy! When uploading a file, could you please name the file in the Avatar-Artistname-filename naming convention? If you upload the file misnamed, then an editor must reupload the file under the correct name and an administrator must delete the misnamed file. If you have any questions about file naming or anything else about the wiki, you can consult file naming section of the style guide or you can leave me a message on my talk page.

Opal Island articles

Thanks for working on this long-neglected project. When creating the pages please follow the example found at Anegada-Insel (Opal) where Government and History have been replaced with Origin and Current Information. This is meant to direct readers to the German wiki to find the current status of these islands. Thanks. --Fiddler 06:11, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Ahoy! Be careful when creating the maps that you get the buyability of routes correct. Routes should only be solid when you can buy that map, and you can only buy the map if there's a shipyard on an island at one end of the route. Since Opal doesn't have the same colonised islands as Hunter, not all the same routes will be buyable, so you'll need to log on to the ocean and check that you can actually buy those maps. Fair winds! --Belthazar451 20:48, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, in that case it looks to me that the information was just copied from the german wiki. And the map there looks wrong (a half solid route for example). I will try to get the german wiki maps correct in the near future. Another thing we should think about is to what extent we want to take care about information that changes over time and to what extent we just want to refer to the german wiki. No information that will change ? Colonization state/navy color ? Buyability of maps ? --Alfwyn 22:43, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
There are no half-solid routes. Remember, it's the route that's buyable, not the league. In some places, a buyable route can share leagues with the non-buyable route, meaning that on maps with both of them, the leagues should be solid. However, maps showing only the unbuyable route should not have the leage solid. I somewhat suspect the German wiki's maps are simply copies of the Hunter Ocean maps from here with island colonisation status (but not route buyability) adjusted.
As for variability of information, most things shown in the infobox are reasonably static. The thing that changes most will be island ownership, pretty much. And pets. Everything else should be fine to list. --Belthazar451 00:05, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

So should I not list pets? Adrielle =) 02:42, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I would say "no", but that's my personal opinion. I'm not clear on why we list them for the other islands anyway. =)
Incidentally, a couple of notes about image uploading: firstly, don't forget image tags. For the Opal island images, the tag you want is {{Island image|Opal}}. Secondly, don't shrink the island images - we prefer them to be life-size, and let the wiki re-size them on the run as need be. --Belthazar451 07:03, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Ok lol (they are shrunk coz I got them off the German Wiki, and even though it says to click for a bigger view, those are as big as they seem to get). Thanx Adrielle =) 07:26, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Ooo, I see. I'll get new screenshots sometime, then, if you're not able (or willing) to. =) --Belthazar451 07:39, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanx =D I can't get to some of those islands yet :S lol - my "known world" isn't too broad... lol Adrielle =) 07:45, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

I got around correcting the maps in the german wiki. Copying information from there should be safe now. --Alfwyn 20:22, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Deleting

Ahoy! In response to your message on my talk page, only administrators have the option to delete an article/file. If you want to mark something for speedy deletion you can use the {{delete}} (Usage) template. For more information about deletion you can check out the deletion page. Fair winds! --Addihockey (talk/contribs) 02:18, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

NPOV

When creating and editing pages on the Yppedia we like to keep a neutral point of view thus comments like "amazingly cool" are things that should not be included. Please do not include these comments in future edits. Fair winds! -- Cedarwings (talk) 07:24, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Sorry lol I will take it off the other 2 pages that it is on Adrielle =) 07:48, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Ships Listed on Adrielle

Sorry, I like looking through the recent changes, looking for errors to fix and I saw a summery on your page (Ships). Just saying but only Renamed Ships may be listed on a Pirate page --Lcawte 15:23, 8 May 2009 (UTC) (Talk)

All standard named vessels have been removed from the page as per policy. -- Cedarwings (talk) 00:21, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
So standard renamed ones arent allowed either? Sorry, I didnt know.
Renamed ships are allowed, just not default names --Lcawte 09:05, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Creative Spot used to be something Tigerfish, but it sounds not renamed. I don't mind, I don't really need to list them tho lol. Adrielle =) 09:20, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Portraits

All pirate pages have a convenient link to portrait galleries on each ocean which is why we only permit one portrait per pirate page. All extras have been deleted. -- Cedarwings (talk) 00:21, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

I was just copying someone elses page sorry

I keep getting logged out!

Hi! I don't know if anyone knows what could be causing this, but sometimes when I change pages on Yppedia, I somehow get logged out and have to log in again. I tick "Remember me on this computer", and it has always worked in the past, up until the last few days. It is weird. Could it be a browser/cookie-ish setting or something? I am using Firefox 3.5 beta 4 - I don't think I have changed any options or anything, but I might have... lol. Adrielle =) 05:53, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Avatar Filenames

Ahoy! I removed the speedy delete from Image:Avatar-XxKanGalxX-Ezmerelda M.png‎, since it is the correct name. Avatar filenames and avatar image tags use the forum name of the artist, not a piratename (see YPPedia:Style_guide#File_Names and YPPedia:Image_tags#Tagging options). That way the link of the avatar tag can be used to get to the forum profile of the creator to contact him/her. --Alfwyn 12:40, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
