A question about the Wiki...
« on: September 05, 2009, 09:56:43 am »
Is there any way that we can embed video into the page instead of providing a link to a video at the bottom? Because I think imbeding the video into the web page just looks a lot better.

Also, on a side note, when is the wiki going to replace the main site? Because from what I see, the only thing left to do with the wiki is to give it a proper theme and were done. The pages look good. The last thing we want occurring is for this project to stall.

What exactly is your idea of a "proper" theme? Not trying to belittle your idea, but I seriously want to know how you can improve the theme.

A solid background color. What we have now is, or at least looks like, we just took a glitch sprite and copied and pasted it over and over again.
I understand that people don't want to port the GCL theme over to the wiki. Because its bad code and all that. But just making the background white and maybe tweaking the Grey we have now would make it the same basic thing. It would be a little different but similar enough to be familiar and different enough to show that its a new thing.
Thats what I would consider a proper theme. And, as crazy as it sound, my idea isn't completely imposable to do. Correct me if I'm wrong but it sounds like that kind of change would be rather easy.

There's an alternate version with a white background, does that look like what you consider proper?

Yeah, the GCL theme is what I'm talking about. I was just thinking that would be a better default because it fits with the theme of the Fourms and of the old site.

I just think the GCL theme looks more professional and should be the default.

Also, I saw the things like the GlitchDex were not yet on the site. I was thinking, until they are ported onto the wiki, we could just post a link to the versions we have on the site now so that the Wiki could be made operational.

I wasn't talking about the "old GCL theme" I was talking about what was basically a GCL version of Monobook. I made the white-background version the default and made the other version an alternate. If you think some of the grays need to be changed please feel free to point out.

The "GCL 1.0" style should be somewhere in there, but I'm not making it the default because it's badly formed HTML and it (IMO) looked ugly when ported to the wiki.

Oh. Well I saw the GCL version of Monobook and I think that looks better then the default now. But I found the GCL 1.0 on the wiki and I didn't see any real difference from the main site to the wiki other then some wiki edit options. But I don't know why the GCL skin has adds and the GCL Monobook doesn't.

But I see that we have come to a difference of taste. Something unsolvable so I was thinking that we could have a vote here on the fourms to see which skin the majority like. This way everyone feels like they have a say.
