Welcome :)

Thanks. :)
While you are here, I'd like to have your opinion on uploading images to this Wiki. Okay or takes too much space/bandwith? -- EoF
Go for it. More Stars! pics are always good...most pages are bland due to being largely copied from Stars!FAQ...the Supernova/MT/AHClient pages are original...I have a bunch of supernova ones and pics I'm very slowly organising to put up. I assume you've looked at my user page...non-stars pics in a limited way Gible 14:27, 6 February 2009 (NZDT)
PS 4 tildes(~) works for sigs Icon wink.gif
PPS Image uploading seems to be not working...I'm working on it fixed. Gible 14:41, 6 February 2009 (NZDT)
Thank you. I'm a little rusty with Wiki edition, but I'm sure it will come back soon enough. :)
What about image standard? I was thinking about using full resolution .jpg, but I could also use less interesting compressed .jpg or .png --Eagle of Fire 14:54, 6 February 2009 (NZDT)
I like my web to be fast, and while I'm not stuck on dialup like some, even broadband in nz isn't very fast, so png would be my general choice for screengrab type stuff(things with hard edges) otherwise jpg. Uncompressed images should probably be converted, but otherwise I usually just upload the ones I stole ;) Gible 16:46, 6 February 2009 (NZDT)
I made tests before uploading the new pictures and .jpg were very easily way smaller than .png. There is some times in which .jpg are vastly supperior to .png, but I must agree that I usualy use .png myself. --Eagle of Fire 17:09, 6 February 2009 (NZDT)
jpg can't really handle areas of exactly one colour or the hard edges between them tho - they always end up mottley Gible 18:06, 6 February 2009 (NZDT)
I just did an experiment... Given exactly the same image of the fuel mizer, the new version of the program I use take up about half the space... Time to upgrade. :) --Eagle of Fire 05:13, 7 February 2009 (NZDT)

Time tag?

Test: --Eagle of Fire 17:13, 6 February 2009 (NZDT)

Why is my time stamp 6 hours early? ??? --Eagle of Fire 17:14, 6 February 2009 (NZDT)
NZDT Gible 18:04, 6 February 2009 (NZDT)
That does not quite answer my question. The Wiki knows my offset and knows my current time very well. Should it not show me my current time? I am pretty sure that it does on a normal wiki. --Eagle of Fire 18:42, 6 February 2009 (NZDT)
Yeah, I dunno then. Icon biggrin.gif Gible 10:58, 7 February 2009 (NZDT)
I find it strange also, especially since I can't see this behavior anywhere else. It works fine in the recent changes page. --Eagle of Fire 11:44, 7 February 2009 (NZDT)
hmmm..Recentchanges is dynamic, so displaying local times is easy, as soon as you click Save the ~~~~ becomes the timestamp and can be seen and easily read in the page 'source' - the only way around this would be to either detect datetimes on the source and dynamically localise them(eww) or insert them into source in some standardised way(which even different OSes can't even agree on) Gible 13:14, 7 February 2009 (NZDT)

New pages

What do you think about those new pages I've done? Any comments/suggestions? --Eagle of Fire 11:44, 7 February 2009 (NZDT)

I have to read the wiki too now? aww maaan. Icon biggrin.gif
Aaaaahhh... I see. White card, huh? Note to self: next thing to upload: porn. Icon biggrin.gif
lol, They look good. And much closer to what I'd personally want in those pages ie a commentary rather than just the raw details copied from the help file. Feel free to like to every relevant library article and HWF thread too Icon smile.gif Gible 11:33, 9 February 2009 (NZDT)
PS Have made a template for the race design pages ala the utilities/pop tables templates and added it to all existing relevant pages, don't forget it when you create new LRT pages Icon smile.gif Gible 12:12, 9 February 2009 (NZDT)
PPS I can't find the porn..where did you put it?


Can you fill in and attempt to verify you email address please...I might have finally been able to fix it Gible 12:54, 11 February 2009 (NZDT)

I am not particularly interested. I left that option blank on purpose. If you want to communicate with me then you could PM me on the Autohost boards and I'll give you my MSN adress or ICQ number. --Eagle of Fire 13:27, 11 February 2009 (NZDT)
