CapitalizationEdit

Hey,

I wouldn't really call myself anyone of note, but I am technically a staff member and I saw what you wrote on your user page. We don't always follow the exact in-game capitalization, as we try not to overcapitalize when it's not needed. The editing guideline's section on capitalization says that common words or descriptive names shouldn't be capitalized, in addition to generic actor names such as raider or deathclaw.

I think this not only looks better, but it's also more realistic - in normal writing, usually you wouldn't capitalize pistol, for example, when talking about a ".44 pistol I got from the store last week." However, if you do think that we should stick to in-game capitalizations, I could see an argument for that as well. I'll admit, decapitalization does lead to mistakes sometimes. Old Corner Bookstore had to be fully capitalized because a user didn't realize it was the name of a real world location. You can bring this up in the Forum (Community tab) or talk to us on Discord if you want to start a larger conversation about this. :-) AllYourFavorites (talk) 15:05, July 19, 2018 (UTC)

POSTEdit

Mark items with the prefix POST/zzz as cut I think. I don't really references to it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:02, May 28, 2019 (UTC)

BirfdayEdit

Happy belated birthday (Even though I mentioned it in chat already and went AFK for hours afterwards :3)! - Chris 4 Star Dragon Ball Edit 07:18, June 1, 2019 (UTC)

Toggle ButtonEdit

I did some experimenting with the toggle button to see what I could do with it as I've never used it before. Here is something You might find interesting and/or useful:

▼ Show/Hide table ▼

Table of Things:

Things Quantity
Stuff Lots
Junk Mounds
Objects Bunches
▲ Show/Hide table ▲

Oh wow, you can actually use two buttons for the same, that may be rather useful in various pages in the future, thanks! Prof. Sugarcube (talk) 04:24, June 3, 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, you can add an extra button with the current table you've got too, you don't have to switch to this alternate collapsible content set up. I just wanted to see if combining different set ups worked, and clearly they do. I am going to start using toggle buttons on my own home wikis now and might recommend them to other wikis I manage as well.

Check this one out, you can put a button in a button:

▼ Show/Hide table ▼
Things Quantity
Stuff Lots
Junk Mounds
Objects Bunches
▲ Show/Hide table ▲

That one would be the one I'd use more often, since the second button only appears after the first - the tests are showing something wonderful, i'll try to roll out wherever they are needed on some pages <3 Prof. Sugarcube (talk) 12:43, June 3, 2019 (UTC)

CapitalizationEdit

I'd agree with the remarks you make about tequila. Normal tequila is decapped (wikipedia, also done with older games - Wasteland tequila), some tequila variants are capped because of the proper noun. I'd allcap High voltage hefe because of a proper noun. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:05, June 6, 2019 (UTC)
