Don't think it's been mentioned in this thread yet so I might as well say it now.

We're petty close to reaching our storage limit, and if we exceed it, JJay's going to have to pay. As far as I know he's restricted uploads to admins only just as a sort-term measure. Linking to imageshack or photobucket is probably the best thing to do for now.

Could you give me a hand sticking stub tags on all profile pages that have no content if at all possible?

Also, are we ready to make a decision on the wikipedia situation yet or should that be held up for another while? All up to you guys, I don't do anything on the profles so I'll leave it up to you.

How can we upload screenshots from external sites such as Photobucket or Imageshack to the wiki?

We can't.

He means providing a link to Photobucket where they can view the screenshot.

At least, that is what I think he means.

Just done that with Xabi Prieto, a player known to me via Crazy's Torquay dominance on FM07. Let me know what you think.

Edit: 2900th post.

Maybe, to make it stand out on pages that have text, you could give the screenshot a separate header. Something like this:

==Screenshot of Profile==
[link to screenshot]

We've hit 100% disk usage now. I think the best idea is to upload all player profile screenshots to photobucket from now on. JJay will be taking all the screenies uploaded to the site and they'll be re-uploaded on photobucket. Afterwards we'll have plenty of disk space left so we'll be able to allow uploads again.

Alan - Sorry about the delay for the graphics page, i have a French Oral still to go and i am getting loads of homework at the moment, so everything else is on hold for a while :(

I will definately be free by the 17th July as that is the day that school breaks up for me :) Still a month to go though :(

I got sent one 7 months early. Time zones no excuse - I'm just loved that much.

Looking back on it, it could've been 5 months late - but hey, I'm a glass half full kind of guy ;)

Good to hear from you Hamilton :thup:

I've made a new template called {{Player Profile Stubs}}, will anyone putting a stub tag on a player profile please use this template instead from now on. It makes it easier to differentiate between player profile stubs and the other stubs.

Just another idea regarding the player profiles: How about leaving profiles un-categorised (keeping the stub tag though) until they have some FM-related content? Mightn't be the best of ideas, but I'd like to know what you think anyway.

No problem Alan :thup: Graphics Pack page is nearly finished, so it should be posted within a few days. I have finished this year's exams now :D I also have an INSET Day on Friday :D

MeLikeFM - Yes they have been edited to include FM related info :thup:

Most of the profile pages are still missing FM info iirc.

What's an inset day?

Aha. Yeah it must be a UK thing, it's called an inservice day mostly over here.

I'm making a page on how to use some of the basic wiki commands now (eg how to categorise pages of make headers), for anyone who is unsure of how.

Here it is. There's still a bit that I haven't included, but I will as soon as I think of it.

Also, the site's been vandalised over the last week or so by new users such as Buy Viagra and Buy Breast Enhancement Gum. Not sure exactly what he's trying to achieve by doing this, but each to their own I suppose :D

Nah, it's not that hard, just takes a bit of getting used to. Look at the edit section of pages that use commands you'd like to use and see what the code is. That's probably the easiest way to find out.

True. But because I edit a page every month or so, i'm not that used to them :D

Does anyone know how hall of fame points are calculated?

I'd also like to know where you get your FM graphics and stuff like that from? I'm trying to expand on the useful links page fwiw.

I was just wondering if anybody could tell me if this article is correct and if so where do i save the notepad file for the game to recognize it

http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=Regen_Editing_-_How_to_add_your_own_regen

Yes, it is correct. Probably best if you look at this page, it tells you how to handle EDTs. Remember that you have to start a new game for it to take effect. If you've any other questions just ask.

Cheers, any idea what a Champions League title is?

Think I have most of the links from those sites in, let me know if there are some missing.

Most of the profile pictures will be taken down tomorrow and I'll re-upload them to me photobucket account. If anyone has the time to help me sort out the pictures please let me know, because it's going to take AGES otherwise.

Alan, what's Viagra?

Seems to have quietened down a bit recently - is there anything that needs doing?

You could try linking pages that have similar subjects, info etc in them. Linking to related topics is what I was doing last time I was editing.

Just came back into GD and i'm supprised at how much work (Or lack of) has been done :eek:

Rest assured that i'll be doing some more work on pages soon. Just 1 week of school left :D

Like you, I'm back in GD after a break. I'm generally surprised about how inactive everywhere is - I've seen busier graveyards...

In fairness, we never had that many people working on the wiki at the same time. When a few users take a break it's bound to happen.

Any ideas on what we should be focussing on now?

Player profiles imo. Do you think I could try and get permission to ask around in the GPTG to ask people to add a little bit of player info from FM onto pages? I think HoPeY and Purefun would be cool with a post in some club threads if I ask them first.

I also suggest the player profiles.

Jammy - That would be a great idea and I think that HoPeY and Purefun would agree to that like we have for our club guides.

Edit: Is there a system that we can use where only admin can accept new accounts? I, for one, am unhappy with the number of multiple accounts (most probably from the same user) and the names in particular that the accounts are called.

Yeah it would be nice to get some FM related info into profiles. Go for it.

Vandalism - What we could do is restrict access to accounts until an admin has approved them. The downside to this is that I've noticed a few guys register to the site and make edits just a few minutes after signing up. Restricting accounts like this would make it even more inconvenient for new users.

To be honest I don't really give a crap about what this guy/spambot does. I can block him, delete his page and re-name his account in a matter of seconds. I just find it a bit sad that someone would spend their spare time doing this.

I'll send a PM to one of them and ask about it then :thup:

ALSO: As there is no more room left on the site (I don't think) shall we make a Photobucket account for fmwiki - so we can have everything in one place? Would be a lot easier to control than having lots of pictures everywhere.
