Since I'm a Lazy Fox, unlike my cousin of the "Quick Brown Fox jumped over the Lazy Dog"-fame, I'm all about the automation. There is a wiki extension I've requested to be enabled for the Skybrary. Once that is done, it's a slam dunk. Now, where's my snoozing hat?

Edit: Ok, User:MrDolomite/Sandbox#Another_Pile_of_Sand needs to be figured out as far as the categorization works, to make the automation totally workable. We can take that discussion to the wiki, but until then, keep going the manual way.

*cough* There is an automated process. It's called "Kyra obsessively scans the 'Current Updates' page to add any new pages to the RDC to keep it current."

Yeah, I noticed. Your name is all over http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Recentchanges . :)
Not unsurprisingly, MrDolomite found what we needed. Now I just need a little time to implement it... unless some other enterprising Skyrates wants to give it a go.

I took the liberty to add [[Category:Citizens]] to your User page, Fenriq.

Gracias, Calvin.

On a side note, I wouldn't mind removing the User designation. Or possibly changing User to Pilot or Senator?

We've been using the User pages as a convenient built-in feature that helps specify which characters are players and which are NPCs.

Calvin - can it take /all/ new pages and put them somewhere? So I can find a list just of new pages that need to be categorized? User pages aren't the only things that get added regularly, just the most frequent at the moment.

That's a good idea. Unfortunately, it appears that several players are not in the "User"" namespace. Check out http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Citizens .

Every player without "User:" in front of their character name (such as "Edmund C. Fex") needs to be moved (to "User:Edmund C. Fex", for example).

We (that is, any Skybrary admin) can do that, if the consensus here is that we should.

A list of pages that have not yet been added to a category can be found here: http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Special: ... rizedpages .

Once categorized, the trick that MrDolomite found can "automagically include" those pages wherever we like (such as the RDC, for example).

Does that help?

That would be cool, but I'm fairly certain that the "User:" namespace is a artifact of wikia-ness and is not reconfigurable.

Or you can just make your own page, like I made /wiki/sadistica instead of /wiki/user:sadistica ..

That, unfortunately, would be a break from the "all players use the 'User:' namespace" convention that we outlined above.

That's why I suggested that we move some users' pages (i.e "Edmund C. Fex" moves to "User:Edmund C. Fex").

For what it's worth, you can still have a redirect page at "Edmund C. Fex" that points to "User:Edmund C. Fex" OR you can use the following wikicode to obfuscate the link a bit:
Code:
[[User:Edmund C. Fex|Edmund C. Fex]]
This would display as Edmund C. Fex, but link to the page User:Edmund C. Fex.

Hi all,


One nice thing would be to have one's page on one's signature, they would be more visited and maybe even have comments dans discussions... Could add a little RP for those who don't have time to involve into full RP ^-^

My page.

I'm updating the "teenage love" plot between Sharky and Luna as I go.
