    I like the idea, but not all of the threads have them so someone would have to research them all...

    And you can undo edits, by doing:

    Recent Edits, (diff), then in the top right next to where it says who edited it it says 'undo'. Click that and submit the new entry

    I have just had an idea which would help on the club guides(nation) page, where we post about tv money, cup money, cups etc.

    Gives more of an in-sight into managing in that country.

    To follow up on this. Anyone can undo edits by going to history and then choosing undo. Admins can both undo and rollback edits but they are pretty similar.

    I think a template for how club guides should be written would be a good idea.

    Yes, that's a great guide

    It could do with a small bit of tweaking though imo, just to help it transfer well over to the wiki. More emphasis on layout & headings in the wiki guide would be great.

    1. Upload an image from your computer (you may need to download it first if you're getting the image off google) - http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk...Special:Upload
    2. Copy & paste the name of the image, including the 'image:' bit.
    3. Edit page screen.
    4. [[Image:Image Name|Right/Left/Centred/leave blank if no justification is needed|image size (eg. 120px)]]. An example would be [[Image:Arsenal.jpg|right|100px]]
    Good work Jammy, & hope that helps

    Don't think there's much else to be said really, I was going to suggest getting rid of the Arsenal badge but I see you've already done that.

    I'd just like to say great work lads for all the effort you've put into the wiki recently. Now the majority of our articles have plenty of content, which is fantastic.

    I'm going to run through all the articles again now & put a few stub tags on articles that might need a bit more work now.

    Ah sure you never know, there's always the possibility that someone might find out about the wiki from the FAQ's. Besides, most of those hits come from about 10 regulars to the wiki.

    FYI there are some very good league guides, especially of obscure leagues, on FM Britain. They would come in handy for people who like to play with weird leagues or teams, perhaps you should ask them if you can use some of their stuff.

    Yeah, most likely will be closed - I think it probably wouldve been best if you emailed their webmaster and kept it private, but sure we can't change it now. Link?

    I'll add what I have done, when I get the chance.

    Edit: FM Britain have said it's ok to use their guides so that's a lot less work for me

    I'll add some happily, but am not a member of FMBritain so can't get them directly off there. Any other way you know, or will I have to sign up?

    I can put it on the wiki if you like jammy. Also, I think we all need to discuss the format of club guides. I got rid of some of the headers to make it look like wikipedia style intros a few days back, but I'm now thinking maybe we should come up with a new structure. What are your opinions on this?

    It'd be great if you could, if not then i'm sure others would be able to do them.

    What sort of format are you suggesting? When I made them I made them as similar as I could, depending on what was in each guide.

    Anything that stops the index from being the first think you see on the page, with the intro above it. That's what I've done, but then the index looks a bit messy. What do you think yourself?

    Yeah, I kind of see what you mean.

    The real life information bit now isn't very easy to see, and the index looks a bit lost. I'm not really sure how it could be changed, but it could be better.

    Might as well explain it clearer in case some of you don't get me (not aimed at you jammy fwiw, I think you know what I'm on about.

    Man Utd Page
    Chelsea page

    Now, out of those two examples, which do you prefer? My problem with the Chelsea article is that it looks very bare without an introduction. I feel that the nickname, location etc should be put above the index - re-worded & with a bit more information included. What do you all think?

    Yes, I agree that the Utd article looks better. But about 1/10 of articles have a reasonable amount of intro, so on the majority it would just be a sentence or two on the top of the page. It would be pointless having that, as it would be missed half the time. Look at the Liverpool Page for example. The real life information is a couple of lines, not including the peice about former managers (which I don't think is really needed, may delete it if no one minds). Yes, it will be a bit of an introduction. But in my opinion it would look a little ridiculous having one or two lines. A paragraph is needed minimum, and that is a lot of work.

    I know what you mean. I think I'll have a scan through the club guides and mark all of those without proper introductions as stubs. I'll then list out all the stubs later on tonight

    Well, we don't have any general guide written up (which reminds me, I really have to get around to doing that). Just try to follow the general layout of most of the other articles for now

    But for club guides, this.

    Yeah, so this is how we stand at the moment. Most of these that I've listed (in particular the club guides) have quite a lot of information. It's just that they're missing that extra bit of information that would make them feel complete imo. Just to let anyone that has any knowledge on these subjects know

    This has been posted in a seperate topic in the wiki forum as well.

    I think we need to do something to make the club guide template stand out more - maybe put it on the front page? Maybe it's time to replace the 'why we set this up' part. Also, I'm going to write up a general guide to making wiki pages.

    One last reminder - don't be afraid to add/remove stub tags from pages.

    I've done the article as much as I can.

    It doesn't look like it's much there, but it has everything in it and there is nothing else I can add to it without making it waffle.

    If you think anything else needs to be added either do it yourself or tell me and I'll do it

    In the Database Editor article, why is the FMRTE link there? Thats not about database editor, thats a save game editor I think.

    I realise it mentions FMRTE, but imo it would be best to create a save game editor page and link to it in there. Linking to FMRTE in the database editor page could cause confusion imo.

    You know what, I think we should leave it on for now. Since there's so much you can do with the editor, I think we should leave it as a stub until it becomes a difinitive guide on using the editor.

    Hold on, I made an editor guide for someone else last week, & sent it through PMs. Hopefully I still have it in my outbox, then it'll just be a copy & paste job!

    To whoever made the 'Regen Editing' Article, it really needs finishing. At the moment it is pretty much pointless, as it doesn't explain how to do this.

    Also, I'm not sure there is a point in having staff profiles and player profiles. I can't see either getting too many done, so we should mix the two. Views?

    Jod made it originally, & left it blank. Then Rob wrote up the intro to it. Jod is to blame imo

    Yeah, lets just blame him. He'll never know

    But in all seriousness, does anyone know how to do this? If not I'll make a thread about it in the Editors Hideaway about it and ask in there. I'm sure someone can help.
