Hi, Harakoni

Why do you disagree that left-aligning the table improves readability?

See e.g. https://practicaltypography.com/centered-text.html

Thanks for directing me to the proper place to have this conversation if this isn't it. Seems I didn't have the rights to add a Discussion to the article itself. Also, I don't know whether I'll be notified of updates to this discussion. :)

Usually left-aligned looks much better than center-aligned, but in this case not necessarily. Here, left-aligned looks proper but somewhat crowded and much of the white space that would make the page look clean is lost to one side. The center-aligned is a but funky but I think the white space makes it look more inviting and improves readability.

Also, as already mentioned, if changing one of the thoughts table, they all ought to be changed. For something like this where one change actually obligates making the change in multiple places, I would create a sandbox page under my user page, copy the table, and do all the changes and experimentation I want, settle on what looks best, and maybe get some input from others.

All that said, you could still be right, but it's hard to tell when it doesn't have the the coloration and row dividers.

Jim has covered my opinion pretty well, but that said, but really my main problem is whatever it the standard is, it needs to match on ALL the thoughts tables and i didn't think it was worth changing all of them to that standard.

But if you think it looks cleaner, while I disagree a little, I'm not opposed to you implementing a standard change. My first of two edits has a version that preserves the color/dividers/etc if you want to have a go at implementing it.

Also yeah you won't have page creation rights until 10 page edits and the bot gets around to autoconfirming you. Its clunky but unfortunately hiw it works. Posting here was fine, thats what this page is for. Please always feel free to come with questions, or join us on the discord server.

If you don't have page creation rights yet then feel free to experiment using the Sandbox.

Hi. I'm unable to edit pages or add new topics to them. I created this account a couple minutes ago to change bionic stomach's mass from 99999kg to 2.00kg, but am unable to do so. I am also unable to add new topics to your page, so I am forced to respond to this topic which is irrelevant to the issue I saw, apologies. Seeing as you were the last person to edit the bionic stomach page, I thought I'd ask you here. That's all, thank you.

Market Value template not rounding properly. Updated code to fix.

Dakon (talkcontribs)

I don't know if you are the right person to contact but I noticed an issue with the rounding of the market values in the info box on the top right of pages about weapons. The market values are rounded to the nearest ten, which is incorrect.

Example: I recently corrected the market value of the EMP launcher to 505 but it is rounded up to 510 in the info box.

As described on the page about market value, "items with a market value of above 200 will have their market value rounded to be divisible by 5, with a remainder of 2.5 being rounded down."

The market values on the page https://rimworldwiki.com/wiki/Weapons are rounded correctly, which creates an inconsistency.

It would be great if you could let someone know that has the permissions to fix this.

Harakoni (talkcontribs)

Yup, I'm the right person, or one of them at least. There definitely is an issue in the rounding calcs somewhere. I'll take a look and see if I can get it sorted.

But also always feel free to investigate and experiment if you want to. The issue is very likely in Template: infobox main or Template: Market Value both of which you should have permission to edit (also templates used on a page are listed at the bottom when you edit). If you're editing a template, just check a few pages its used on and make sure that you didn't break anything. If you did, then revert. No harm, no foul.

Harakoni (talkcontribs)

Alright, it appears to be working as intended now. There was an issue with the implementation of the Template:Market Value. I've done some rough testing and it seems to now match the method listed on Market Value. If you find any more problems with the template, or anywhere you think its being used to round values, let me know.

Dakon (talkcontribs)

Seems to work perfectly now. Thanks.

Accepted Moderator Role.

Zesty (talkcontribs)

Hi Harakoni,

If you are interested, I could use an additional wiki moderator. I see you have been making great contributions to the wiki since March, and I think you'd be a good fit for the mod team.

Please let me know if you're interested.

Harakoni (talkcontribs)

What would the responsibilities be? Part of why I have been so active lately is free time due to Corona slowing everything down. I'll eventually have to scale back at least somewhat and don't want to commit if I can't deliver. That said, I am interested in helping out more if I can.

Zesty (talkcontribs)

Responsibilities are mostly:

  • Cleaning up spam
  • Helping users delete pages that aren't needed anymore
  • Helping users with wiki questions

It's a pretty straight forward job, and you seem like a good fit. We could use the help given the elevated level of spam recently. It's no big deal if you change your mind later -- you'd always be welcome back to the mod team whenever you find that you do have some time.

Harakoni (talkcontribs)

Then absolutely. I'd be glad to help.

Zesty (talkcontribs)

I've bumped up your usergroup to mod.

If you use Discord, please send me your Discord User#ID and I'll invite you to the wiki Discord.

PigeonGuru (talkcontribs)

Would you like to start a sandbox within your userspace?

Harakoni (talkcontribs)

Actually yes, thats a great idea. Its probably better than making a mess of my user page Harakoni (talk) 04:07, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
