MediaWiki talk:Monaco-sidebar

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

This talk page is for discussing the MediaWiki:Monaco-sidebar page.

I suggest that we change it from *mainpage|RuneScape Wiki to *mainpage|Main Page. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:52, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Oh, and also, the IRC chat link should be changed to RuneScape:Chat.

I think Special:Top/community (topusers#) should be in top content. Before I knew the link, I was looking for one there. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 22:32, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

It's just a list of users by total edit count. Only encourages editcountitis, at least in my opinion. Skill 22:34, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
What's wrong with wanting a high editcount? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:55, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Editcount tells very little about a user's actual level of commitment or their status in the community. On other wikis where users are rewarded for a high editcount, users repeatedly make pointless contributions that add nothing to the site. It is better to instead feature users who have been recognized by other editors as good examples of editors. Dtm142 20:58, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

I never understood why it's called the "Community Portal". It really has nothing to do with the community. The "Community" link should direct to the Forums. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:50, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

The forums have much less to do with the community than the community portal. I do agree that the community portal page could use an overhall. Dtm142 20:58, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
How about the Yew Grove? I've noticed that on other wikis, the Community Portal is their version of our Yew Grove. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 22:00, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Could you please add to "Other languages" menu.its an Estonian [Eesti] RS wikia.--IareBambi 12:49, November 8, 2009 (UTC)

Change to IRC chat[edit source]

In accordance with RuneScape:Yew Grove#Agreement, could we change the IRC chat item code to the following?

*RuneScape:Chat|IRC chat
**|Java client
**|CGI:IRC client
**RuneScape:Chat policies|IRC policies
**RuneScape:Chat|IRC help
**RuneScape:Chat/user cheatsheet|IRC nicknames
**RuneScape:Chat/QDB|Quotes database
**|Old IRC channel

Community[edit source]

The Yew Grove is at the beginning of the Community dropdown on the Monaco sidebar, but if you click on Community, it takes you to the Community Portal, which has to do more with editing than community discussion. Since the Yew Grove is one of the most frequently visited project pages, I think that the Community title should link directly to the Yew Grove. Anyone agree?

Disagree - Sorry but I think that the community portal page is to important (albeit less used) than YG. IMO it's more directly tied to the editing of the wiki and I think we should steer users toward that page as much as possible.

Languages[edit source]

Should we remove these Languages from the "Other Languages" tab. They are the wikis that are not really attempting at all to have information about RuneScape and/or have been ditched at a very early age:

I might as well be bold and remove them now since nobody has commented. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 05:45, January 11, 2010 (UTC)
Go ahead, I was just about to comment go ahead and do it, but you edit conflicted me. If they have no real content, remove them. FFNFMBucket detail.pngrwojy 05:49, January 11, 2010 (UTC)
Well you should double check Estonian one, it is not abandoned yet and still quite active .Here is new Estonian one IareBambi 17:25, March 24, 2010 (UTC)

Featured user[edit source]

I was browsing around, and noticed that user of the month wasn't on here. Should this be added on under the community tab? This would just be a link to the discussion page. ~MuzTalk 23:34, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

Easier skill training guide navigation[edit source]

I know I am not an admin, so this probably won't mean much to anyone, but I was thinking that coming off Guides > Skill training we could put "Free-to-play" and "Pay-to-play" categories. And coming off those we can have links to f2p and p2p training guides. Matt (t) 05:15, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

It's fine that your not an admin. But we just cleaned the sidebar, if you want to suggest something added to the cleaned sidebar, you can post on the thread that made this clean up (might get some for attention there).
