What do you think looks better, a huge space on the top or a a huge space on the right? The space is inevitable, but it's possible to edit the template to make it smaller for the first case. I have a preference for 75% also becuase transcripts are half filled with one-liners.
I don't mind the space on top, as I'd prefer the transcript width to cover the entire page. Perhaps some of the information in the infobox can be either added to the top of the page, or turn the infobox into a different kind of template that takes up less room vertically, but more room horizontally. For example, the source video part is redundant, as there is a link right under the title of the article. The length can be placed in the aforementioned template, but I don't believe the length is entirely necessary to include.
The "status" bit can be easily done with the Extend template. I can create a separate template with the same image and quote, but the information below the quote is relevant to any incomplete transcripts instead of short articles. As for the "previous" and "next" parts, I believe those can be placed under the transcript itself, in a way more or less like on the Avatar Wiki, which is where I originally saw this kind of general transcript table in the first place.
Long story short, I'm starting to think a transcript infobox is not needed, as all the information in it can be included in a more organized and aesthetically-pleasing way that doesn't affect the dimensions of the transcript itself.
The large upper gap's unnecessary, it creates unneeded spacing. You can probably fix this by fusing the infobox and the table. As for what Sorcerer mentioned, there's a slight inconsistency when it comes to transcripts; some have their own sub-pages whilst others are placed on their respective articles which creates a gap in between sub pages (if transcript that comes after the sub page is located on the main article).
I agree that shorter transcripts don't require a separate page and having sub-articles for larger ones prevents clutter, but the navigation problem needs to be resolved so as to avoid confusion and any further complications.
Perhaps the links to transcripts for short videos (such as Markiplier Highlights episodes) can be linked to the Transcript section, and, at the bottom of the collapsible transcript thing be links to the previous and next transcripts. I just don't think such a short transcript needs a separate page.
It was bothering to me that if there's no description for video, it still says "Description needed", so I updated that. It works now as:
No text -> "Description needed"
Any text -> that text shows up
If the next is NONE -> Nothing will show up.
Do you think if it's good and what it should say for each case?
(his.) Bob is an english adaptation (Hypocorism) for gernamic name Robert, so some people sometimes use both for reference, but I've never heard it and can't find any "Robert Muyskens" except LinkedIn account, which I can't view.
I'm aware of that, however, I've never heard of him being called Robert and some people are named just Bob. Mark even mentioned this in one of his old livestreams, but I have no way of knowing if he was just joking. That's why I'd prefer if Sorcerer would source his info. In fact, we really have to start enforcing these rulesets, people just add random information that I have no way of knowing since they're scattered across multiple videos.
It took a while to look up, because it's been almost a year. I added them in August 2016. And when we did discuss that, somewhere in October 2015. Well, you can remove thumbnail images if you want. Another example how template update can help (tabber won't show if there's screenshot only).
Wow, I go to bed for several hours and already much has happened. Alrighty then, here we go.
I was under the impression that it was common sense that "Bob" has always been short for "Robert" (when "Bob" is a guy"), and now that I think about it, I could've sworn Bob mentioned it in either an old livestream or one of his videos. Specifically speaking, I don't remember what. What got me to add that in the first place was Famous Birthdays (Bob is labelled as "muyskerm" in the title, btw, if you decide to see for yourself), which listed his real name as Robert. Combine that with the LinkedIn account, and Bob being short for Robert in general, and I think that's pretty good evidence for his real name being Robert.
And, no, the category should just stay as "Videos featuring Bob". And the same should go for Mark's other friends that are prominently featured on his channel - "Videos featuring Tyler", "Videos featuring Ethan", etc. I think first names are enough (except we can do "Videos featuring Jacksepticeye" and "Videos featuring Jacksfilms" to clear up any confusion) without making the category title unnecessarily long.
Pretty much what Suminoma said, it's the same as a wiki, anyone can edit it. As for Linked In, is that suppose to be his official account and can we verify it? I went to check it and as soon as I did, his image disappeared for some strange reason.
We already label these categories in that manner. Though, since I made one of the video articles that featured Ethan, I labeled it with his full name. Should it be changed?
If you're already expanding content on game-related articles, list some additional details related to the game itself rather than transcribing redundant developer and platform info off its infobox. The preceding usage is a basic template for setting up game articles, the same way most video articles contain almost no content.
Video articles that don't have custom thumbnails don't require gameplay screens. This is usually to demonstrate a high point in Mark's gameplay videos if he has a custom background. Sorry, should have told you sooner, seeing how you've already put a lot of effort into it.
Dropped games are considered as such if the game has a predetermined objective that Mark failed to complete. Minecraft is not an objective-based game, meaning it could practically be played forever, so there's no need for the tag. Same goes for him demonstrating a game through a short quick gameplay.
Has Mark at any given point made something regarding this height? Anything like a joke or something in between, since I don't think people who add this as his official height know how short that is for an average human being.
I thought his height was around 5'2", as he and his friends would always tease Mark about his height. We've seen Mark, Bob, Wade, and a couple other people all stand next to each other (in one of his million-sub milestone videos), and while he is noticeably shorter than them, he is obviously not 4'2".
If you're asking me and me specifically, no, I did not add that info on Mark's page. I reverted an edit in which ~SaSuKeLoVeR2000~ deleted the spacing in that information row. I do not know who added that, but whoever did is mistaken.
You're right, I always thought 5'2" was too inconsistently short, especially when we see have seen that he's not essentially a midget compared to Bob and Wade. I believe 5'10" is his actual height, which seems more consistent with the makeshift "height chart" screenshot we can get from said million-sub milestone video I mentioned earlier.
Examples of how I see it now: desktop no ads, laptop ads. (Seems video feed has a weakness to deleted videos). It seems to me that the left side needs something more, as it's too short, but I don't have an idea.
Anyway, feel free to give some feedback and suggestions.
I don't know. I also mentioned news regarding updates of Markipedia. I'm usually taking care of the Game Theorists wiki. When I get around to it, I might ask you some tips to improve the main page, as I saw yours and NewGen's lengthly discussion (I read a little bit of it out of curiousity, but not much).
Please, do not post any unrelated images that are not going to be used for the wiki. If you wish to add a certain image to your profile, use photobucket, a free photo hosting website, and link the image here.
Alright then. By the way, good job on the subscribe button. It works, as whenever my mouse hovers over it, it says "subscribe/unsubscribe as (youtube username)". However, there are several articles in which it says "error".
Edit: I put < and > between what is now quote marks. I was unaware the text disappeared.
Why not both? The subscribe button can be placed in the infobox and slightly more specific numbers can be placed in the main description (or whatever the name is of the section before the first heading). It doesn't have to be specific (the most specific we should get is updating the tenths number every hundred thousand subscribers, and the same thing for views). This is what is on Wikitubia, which is what I assume you based this on.
1. I disagree. One does not simply request another user to not do so. Wikia encourages the idea that admins (or in your case, lead editor and honorary member) are simply users with a few extra tools to help maintain the wiki, and to regard them as you would regard any other user.
3. If you'd stated so in the edit summary, I would not have reverted them. That is a good idea. I have no idea how you would do so, but then again, whenever I do coding or anything complex like that, it's usually through copy-pasting. But you still did not need to delete that part entirely. I'd simply change it after the template is created.
That's the only capable thing i was able to find regarding this. Basically, it shows your sub feed next to the sub button. As for the views counter, I'm not sure how to implement it since there's nothing that directly links to the channel's source.
@Suminoma, what exactly did you have in mind with the main page? I've actually been meaning to talk to you about a few updates we could do.
Help:RSS Youtube can give RSS feed for uploads for a channel, but in Wikia, for some reason, but now it's not even working. It's also possible to get numbers with JS or PHP, if enabled, I just don't know the language.
