Discussion Jass Wiki

SineCosine

I'm still looking for my Tangent
So..

Who moderates the stuff there?
Is there a way to makes things a little easier to navigate? o.0

Anyone interested in filling up that natives list with juicy info.? :thup:

http://wiki.thehelper.net/Main_Page

I've already made it easier to access the Jass natives page.
I added:
For a list of Jass natives that already have an article, please click here.
And made the Jass natives page easier to navigate by adding:
Listing of all natives in WarCraft 3 TFT.

Natives from A-F

Natives from F-G

Natives from G-L

Natives from L-S

Natives from S-U

Natives from U-R
Those are links that you click xD

And I've done this: http://wiki.thehelper.net/wc3/jass/common.j/Rad2Deg
And.. This: http://wiki.thehelper.net/wc3/jass/common.j/SetUnitAbilityLevel

I think ToolTipError modified the SetUnitAbilityLevel page to look nicer :D
So..
Who moderates this stuff?

> Who moderates this stuff?
Everyone who is willing to. I guess that's kinda like the spirit of wikis. :p

Though methinks phyrex1an is the one who has the final say on things there.

Phyre 'owns' the project, that is to say it's his brainchild and he mainly moderates it.

Me, Artificial, and him, are the primary users, though I have seen Lyerae and Romek a few times in talk pages and such.

edit: Oh, and it's not a 'JASS' wiki, since it will eventually contain everything about WC3 Editing, and then SC2.

I keep popping up on this site from time to time.
I only ever edit when I see any spelling/gramamr errors, which I don't seem to find often, or when I can phrase something better than someone else had (to make it easier).

:D

> What's The Helper's policy on taking stuff from other fan sites?

I think it should be okay, as long as you credit the original author, as well as link to the original post.
However, you should still ask the authors permission.

Nah, you don't need to ask for permission, it's a wiki.

Then using it is at your own discretion, and what you find morally right.

There is no wiki policy on citation yet.

Like I said, I agree you should credit, but this is not a moral question, it's a "Do I need to credit the author to put this on a wiki" question.

"Do I need to credit the author to put this on a wiki"
By law you need to have the authors permission to distribute his work. Depending on the license of the content in question you need to ask for this permission. Furthermore, wiki content is released under by-nc-sa (unless otherwise specified, I'm uncertain however if we want other licenses on the wiki), so the author must agree for his content to be released under this, or a compatible, license.
That's how it is if you plan to "take stuff from other sites".

However, then there is also "basing stuff on other sites". We can't really expect everything on the wiki to be 100% original research, so using external sources as the foundation of articles is to be expected. Keep in mind though: 1) Citing the source is good. Both because it's polite to do so, but also because it adds context for readers (eg, a source generally contains more detailed information).
2) "Rewriting" a source generally is the same thing as copying it. We don't do any plagiarism checks on submitted content (who does anyway?) but please use common sense. Ask yourself: Would my teacher accept this?

I copied over lotsa templates and made them work, too.

    I have a GIF though

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?

    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
