* Questions are good!  I wouldn't add anyone's awards without permission.  Some people only want to display certain badges.  The AoA doesn't really have a badge, but some folks wanted to show it, so we made the template for it. Most folks won't list it on their badges.

Approving New Users

Duplicate Account Email Text

If a user account is requested by someone who already has one, we reject the request and set the email text as below (filling in their old user name and associated email address). The user name can be found by seeing what links to their persona page. The email address can be found using Special:UserCredentials and their user name.

Greetings!

You already have an account on the wiki.

Your old user account name is: 
The email address associated with your account is: 

The wiki can reset your password at:
http://wiki.eastkingdom.org/index.php?title=Special:PasswordReset

In Service,
  Michel Wolffauer 

Welcome Email Text

If a user account is requested, and the email address confirmed, then the account is created with the user info set to a redirect to their persona page (Ex: #REDIRECT [[Michel Wolffauer]]) and the below message in the email. Create their persona page using the populace boiler plate.

Welcome!

Please let me know if you have any questions or run into any problems.  If the name on your populace page is incorrect, please use the Move tab at the top to rename it.

Unconfirmed Account Email Text

When an account has not been confirmed after a few days, I email them the following message. In addition to checking on their request, it lets me test their email address. If the address doesn't work for some reason, then they will never be able to receive their password, so the request is deleted. If they don't respond within a week, the request is deleted. In either case, they can always request an account again later.

Greetings!

I noticed that you had started the process for getting an account on the EK Wiki, but didn't finish.  You 
should have received an email from the Wiki to confirm your email address. (Possibly got put in your spam 
folder?) After confirming your address I would get a notice to activate your account.  

Are you still interested in an account?  If so, I will go ahead and active it.

In Service, 
  Michel

Class notes

This is a collection of information I wish more wiki users knew.

New Accounts

  • When requesting an account, check your spam folder for the email to confirm your email address (gmail addresses especially). If the wiki can't send you an email, it can't send you your login information and we can't create an account.
  • Authorizing accounts is a manual step after your email is confirmed. It is usually done within a day, but may take longer if folks are away from their computers.

Page Editing

  • If you need to correct the spelling for the title of a page, use the Move tab at the top of the page. It will ask you if you want to leave a redirect behind - in most cases you will not need to. Move is also used to change the name on your page. (What we don't want are folks creating new pages and "blanking" the old one).
  • Please use the Preview option. Each time you save your page it creates a new history entry for the page. Every change to every page is manually reviewed at some point. The more people use Preview, and the less they use Save, the easier/quicker it is to review everything.
  • When linking to other pages or including images - capitalization counts just as much as spelling. jpg is not the same as JPG or Jpeg.

Uploading files

  • Please use the "Destination filename" field give your file a reasonable and personal name. IMG_43826.jpg is not a good name. MyDevice.gif is not a good name. The Move tab can also be used to rename a file.
  • Please use the "Summary field" give your file a category.

Common categories

Useful Features

  • The Gallery tag

Colons at the beginning of a line are converted into 1 em indentation
Spaces at the beginning of a line are preserved and no longer invoke the <pre> tag

There once was a man from Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket.
But his daughter, named Nan,
Ran away with a man
And as for the bucket, Nantucket

Hi! And a markup error in the new user welcome

Hiya!

Thanks for approving my account. Also, there's an error in the (auto-posted?) new user talkpage message:

Welcome to EastKingdomWiki! We hope you will contribute much and well. You will probably want to read the [Help:Contents help pages]. Again, welcome and have fun! Wolffauer (talk) 11:45, 29 June 2019 (EDT) is missing a square bracket on either side of the Help link.

Also are there any particular areas that need attention?

Cheers Sebastien (talk) 12:23, 29 June 2019 (EDT)

Question

Another question, about this edit. Per the OP, he's had a court barony awarded--should those only be added for court barons of the current reign? Thanks! Sebastien (talk) 21:28, 29 June 2019 (EDT)

Same question, here -- per the OP they have an AoA. Sorry for all the questions! Sebastien (talk) 21:30, 29 June 2019 (EDT)
      • Questions are good! I wouldn't add anyone's awards without permission. Some people only want to display certain badges. The AoA doesn't really have a badge, but some folks wanted to show it, so we made the template for it. Most folks won't list it on their badges.
    • Thanks for catching the welcome message error - now if I could just figure out where it is set I'll get it fixed.


    • As for areas we need help - check the To Do list at the top of this page. The only think we've been doing to personal pages is adding OPIDs when possible.
    • I tweaked the award template you made (Thanks!) to match the others. --Wolffauer (talk) 21:39, 29 June 2019 (EDT)
      • Okay! I'll start working my way through the list. No problem on the award template. I'll be uploading images for awards from other kingdoms so people can add them as needed. A thought occurs: there is probably a relatively simple way to just dump the OP database into the wiki and auto-create pages for everyone. It probably be set to keep the pages hidden, so whenever anyone wants their page created it's just a matter of flipping a flag.
      • The New user message should be in Template:Welcome, but it's not appearing in the full list of everything in the Template namespace. Are you using Extension:NewUserMessage? Sebastien (talk) 22:09, 29 June 2019 (EDT)
