Page name issue
Last edit: 21:38, 10 August 2013
Should LotS/experiment/Omega Deathmachine be at /omegadeathmachine instead? There's an error with the "obtained from" display here (and anywhere that pulls it), and it seems like that may be the cause, but I didn't want to move it since I'm not very familiar with the complicated structure of the templates and pages here. Thanks!
I do believe you are correct. My trick that I always use is copy the page to the new page where it is suppose to be first. My second trick is that I don't really know anything, and I ain't scared to break things :)
I will be happy to answer any questions you might have if you choose to want to learn how the templates here work. It is fairly simple if you look at it from the top down, rather than in the middle of something. In a nut shell the high level view is this: all that should need to be correct is the "Item" pages. Everything else just references the "Item" page. That way information is never duplicated, but can be displayed as needed.
Feel free to break as much as little as you like on the site. As long as you are generally trying to improve things rather than intentionally destroy, you can do what ever you please. Try to leave whatever you do in a working state when you leave the wiki to go play games. Remember, this is a wiki everything you do can be undone, so there is no danger of breaking something permanently. Please have fun and do science-y type things, however if your experiment exploders or grows tentacle arms and you cannot contain it let me know, i have explosion containment apparatti and a large tentacle cutting axe.
Someone, I forget who, took it upon themselves to rename all of the experiment pages to a more readable name. They did a couple, maybe 2 or 3, and then never came back to it. I'm personally fine with reverting the names to the smashed up form, I don't think it matters a lot to readers.
