Fabuloso Friday 1

Good work! But now, I'm really going to sleep!!! --Gelbi 20:58, 6 June 2006 (PDT)

Fabuloso Friday 2

Hey, you deleted the link to Fabuloso Friday 2 on the main page. Why? Don't you think there should be a place to start on a new script? Fresheneesz 14:56, 9 June 2006 (PDT)

It's still there, but it needs to remain in proper size and context. First guideline for Fabuloso Friday 2 should be that people stive to maintain perspective on what they're working on and the value of their part relative to the the whole. Fabuloso Friday has 22,000+ views and is prominently linked from the show. In contrast, Fabuloso Friday 2 has 44 views. The Main Page is a little like the front page of a newspaper, as such these two stories don't deserve equally-sized headlines. To build interest, you'd be better off placing it one of the discussion pages as well. muyfabulosotalk 17:17, 9 June 2006 (PDT)
I supose main page could be like the front page of a newspaper.. that certainly is what wikipedia's main page is. But I sorta saw the main page as a table of contents. How else are people going to find pages? By using the Random page link?? I figured people need a new place to work on a new script, so I made one. Just for the record, I don't think this wiki should be nearly as formal as wikipedia is. Fresheneesz 22:47, 9 June 2006 (PDT)
Agreed. The Main Page here should be much more fun -- and it will be, provided people maintain perspective and realize that their favorite part of the site isn't always going to be everyone else's favorite part. As for advertising/promoting pages, again I think it's better to do that in the context of a project than on the Main Page all by itself. The user and discussion pages are really the way to get the word out about things. muyfabulosotalk 08:49, 10 June 2006 (PDT)

Deleting and strikethroughs

I thought it would be a good idea if people only used strikethroughs rather than deleting (for the script). This would allow people to look at striken lines to see if they were any good - rather than hiding them in history. It might get a little full of striken lines, but the bad ones can be taken out if they've been striken long enough (like 5 or so hours). What do you think about this idea? 15:30, 10 June 2006 (PDT)

Depends on the project and I was wary of making such a hard and fast rule. Sometimes you just gotta delete to keep things moving. Some of this is in response to the Friday Fabuloso debacle so I understand the urge, but I'm not sure it's the right approach. I think we should leave it up to people on a project-by-project basis rather than make it an official style guide point. For example, on days 1 and 2 of a 4 day project, no deleting... but let that project team set that rule, not me. Nice work on the table formatting by the way, thanks. muyfabulosotalk 17:38, 10 June 2006 (PDT)


Greetings, person. In one of the sections you suggested adding subpages, cool idea... except that noobs like myself haven't got a clue as to how. Whilst Wikipedia has a large button with 'create page' on it, its Help pages betray little in how to do that in Other wikis. Could you possibly add the 'how' to the Style Guide page? Muchas Fabulosas Gracias. CeruleanNinja 06:37, 16 June 2006 (PDT)


did you clean up the main page?

maybe... check the history. if I did something you didn't agree with, let me know and I'll fix it. muyfabulosotalk 12:06, 23 June 2006 (PDT)

Wow, it's been over a week since I've been here in the wiki (got your message). The 'the show' page is much more succinct I'll admit. Overall I agree with the fine job you did. Hopefully I'll have time to contribute more sometime soon. [LoA] bodog_formerly_byslexic 20:37, 12 July 2006 (PDT)

your bad-ass name format

...makes me envious. mind if i copy you?

Go for it! To do it: click the "preferences" link next to your name at the top of the screen. Work out the text you want in a temporary page (use preview) then enter it into the "nickname" field. Click "use raw signatures" to preserve the formatting. Mine looks like this: [[User:Muyfabuloso|<font color="#CC33CC"><b>muyfabuloso</b></font>]][[User talk:Muyfabuloso|<font color="#FF3399"><sup>talk</sup></font>]] Now when you sign your name with ~~~ it does the substitution. For me, this is the result: muyfabulosotalk

For people stealing your badass name format

Here is where we can first try using the signature...

  • Respect! --gelbitalk 04:34, 24 June 2006 (PDT).
    But, I think I'm removing the colors. --Gelbitalk 04:39, 24 June 2006 (PDT)
  • I'm still undecided between
Help me choose, suggest something (different colors?), or not. -Disso 15:22, 24 June 2006 (PDT)
  • I like the second one best, though I fear the forthcoming arms race in wacky signatures.  :)
  • Yeah, screwing around with what I can make the wiki do was more fun than I'm going to have with all the ensuing wackiness when everybody does it... - Disso 15:49, 25 June 2006 (PDT)
  • My turn for blatant plagiarism. Now CSS-enabled. --Supermissiletalk 16:57, 30 June 2006 (PDT)
  • That is so cool, I thought you were just special or something. ChaiSpaghettitalk

Navigation Template

  • Boy, there's a lot to learn before one can call one's self a Wiki Racer. Love the template. I was thinking of adding a hard-coded "first show" link to it. I also would love a "latest show" link, but I can't figure out how to do it without having to edit the template every day. Any ideas? --Sford 17:17, 23 June 2006 (PDT)
  • If you edit the template you can put whatever you want in there. Edit the page containing the template and then you'll see links for all the templates used in a page. Click those and make a mess -- I did. :) It's not great yet, but I wanted to get something in place to separate the data from the presentation before people started making any more transcripts. muyfabulosotalk 22:05, 23 June 2006 (PDT)
  • I also think it was great, as a tribute to your wiki-skills, I will copy your badass name format :) --Gelbi 04:30, 24 June 2006 (PDT)
  • Hey muyfabuloso, thanks for the work on the templates! A question though: the transcript header template as it's written now gives bad links to the show pages, the "watch here" link is malformed because you put ze: before the {{{link}}}. I tried to fix this is, but I don't have sufficient boomwow. Easiest for me would be to just paste the URL from the show page into the transcript edit, so I wouldn't need the ze: in the template. However if I remove it from the template it just goes loopy. If you could take a look? Thanks! -Disso
  • Heh. "...don't have sufficient boomwow." Love it. --Sford 07:03, 24 June 2006 (PDT)
  • Warn me when I start overdoing it. Anyway, I figured out that it might not be a huge hardship for me to copy only part of the URL into the template, so scratch the request for revision. It works fine! -Disso 07:22, 24 June 2006 (PDT)
  • Sorry about that. You'd think that given 12 tries and an hour (all clearly documented in the history for all to laugh at, forever) I would have been able to get it right. Tho"

Non-instant message: I started a page here to have a place where the various conversations that I've seen getting started here and there about how the wiki is developing can come together. - Disso 12:37, 26 June 2006 (PDT)

(Re: your edit of Main page) Whoops, I didn't know that clickthroughs to Google Ads were deprecated. Didn't mean to taunt Google or anything, but why is it inappropriate? - Disso 11:35, 27 June 2006 (PDT)

  • no biggie. yeah Google will yank your ads if they think you're drawing undue attention to them. they're pretty uncool about it actually. some people have even mentioned this in the comments. muyfabulosotalk 11:48, 27 June 2006 (PDT)

Muyfabuloso, I had this idea for the voting, table the boards across, then at the bottom where we've been putting the move, have it link to the discussion and voting - perhaps this will allow people to "see" the moves before they read the discussion. See example, although I don't think we'll have 9 options. Idea mayorcjSR 00:06, 29 June 2006 (PDT)

  • Brady Bunch chessboards! I approve only if we vote by the name of the Brady Bunch cast member in the relative position. In your example, I vote Jan with a second choice of Alice. :) Seriously though, I haven't poked in much to those discussions, are people really not reading all the options? This could get critical real fast so I support anything that makes people think. muyfabulosotalk 00:19, 29 June 2006 (PDT)
  • Perhaps - at any rate, I think it might be something to be implemented on Move 6, give people a chance to see if they like the idea Thursday and then put it into play Friday. Just a thought. But yeah, it has been brought up about the first listed move always seeming to "win" - but we can wait and see how things play out. I might put it into play tomorrow afternoon and see what sort of response it gets. mayorcjSR 00:59, 29 June 2006 (PDT)

nice work on the front page!!

What is your wiki experience? Are you a Wikipedian?

No I'm Caucasian. muyfabulosotalk 23:13, 1 July 2006 (PDT)


Chess Voting

You don't think that will make a mess of things? Better for people to offer their opinion in the discussion notes. Does a 'No' eliminate a 'Yes' .. it's pretty confusing .. ├črigaderant

The "VOTE" thing actually has been bothering me for quite some time. It's too black and white. I purposely chose this sequence to test this -- it's the wikipedia model. Give it a chance and if it doesn't work, we can yank it. muyfabulosotalk 23:11, 1 July 2006 (PDT)


Hey Muy, thanks a lot for the lesson on templates. I've just started using them, and seeing your use of <includeonly> and <noinclude> was really valuable. --Majyk 12:52, 29 November 2006 (PST)
