Talk:Etiquette and Protocol

I feel like we need to standardize how the quotes in each episode are written out. In some, the person speaking is listed before the quote, and in some they are after, and then there are differences in bolding and other formatting decisions. I personally don't care what format we use, just so long as we pick one. Maybe we can fit it into the comments part of the template for quotes.--Kabutton (talk) 06:19, 23 May 2016 (PDT)

I'm not fussy either. I tend to do this:

  • "Deck officer" - Alex
  • "SEBULBA!" - Pete

I think putting it into the templates (Daily and WE) makes sense Spookypeanut (talk) 13:22, 23 May 2016 (PDT)

Copy / paste section

Should we move the copy / paste section to a separate page? I can most definitely see how useful it is, but I feel it's starting to clutter up this page a bit. Spookypeanut (talk) 01:18, 23 September 2016 (PDT)

Done! It is available at Copy/Paste‎ --Kabutton (talk) 05:32, 24 September 2016 (PDT)

Fabulous, thanks guys! This is open for discussion, but should we link it from this page? I feel we should, as it is a very useful page. Spookypeanut (talk) 05:39, 24 September 2016 (PDT)

I thought about it, but didn't know where I wanted to put it or what I wanted to say, so I thought I'd leave it until I came up with something, or someone else took care of it.--Kabutton (talk) 05:54, 24 September 2016 (PDT)

Formatting etiquette and protocol

I've added a "Nitpicky Stuff section to this page in hopes of further increasing the standardization of formatting on the wiki pages moving forward. Feel free to add anything you think needs to go there, and I welcome any input you have.--Kabutton (talk) 10:22, 1 January 2017 (PST)

Thanks - that all helps a lot. When you get a chance, can you please let me know how you think we should be linking to other episode pages? I've been grappling with that for the last fortnight (as you may have noticed). Should we use "ESB XY" and then create a redirect page for the link - or should we be inserting a full link with a pipe e.g. "Full episode name|ESB XY"? Not a biggie, I'm just wondering what you think. Thanks in advance.--Dl1846 (talk) 16:00, 1 January 2017 (PST)

A while back I pre-created redirect pages for all the movies 4, 5, 6, and 1 to work with the navigation buttons (because the template takes the full film name as input) using the format [[The Empire Strikes Back 94]]. If you don't feel like making new redirect pages, you can use the preexisting ones. However, if it's a page we link to frequently, it might be helpful to create new shorter redirect on a case-by-case basis. Hope that answers your question. --Kabutton (talk) 16:22, 1 January 2017 (PST)

Yes it does - perfectly. Thanks.--Dl1846 (talk) 17:42, 1 January 2017 (PST)
