No problem! Thank you for helping out :)
Hi Yukon and welcome to the Oddworld Wiki!
To add a picture to an infobox you will need to know the picture's filename. For example the picture of Abe's infobox is called Abe Bio.jpg, which you can see at the top of the image's page. Simply copy paste that into the 'image' field of the infobox and you're all set! The infobox will take care of any resizing that needs to happen.
It's not unheard of in real auctions that people get swept up in the bidding war and then regret the insane amount of money they ended up bidding. But winning an auction is legally binding as far as I'm aware, so you can't just get out of it. I'd imagine Lulu's excuse of "I was being posessed" was seen as just that, an excuse.
If you can turn all of this into a coherent article, by all means go right ahead. I'm not really into the whole save file editing thing, but I'll help you with editing the article if needed.
For lists (like the appearances section) always use the full (official) names. So include the 'Oddworld:' prefix. Other than that the general rule is to include the Oddworld prefix the first time a title appears in the article, and omit it for subsequent mentions.
Thanks you for your contributions, they are much appreciated!
Most articles have two lists of 'appearances'. One is in the infobox and generally refers to the character/location/whatever as it appears in the games. The infobox list should only include the most major titles, as it is meant to be a shorthand list of the most important info.
The article itself is by definition meant to expand information and go into more detail, therefor it is appropriate to mention the artbook under the 'appearances' header, if the character/whatever does in fact appear in official print. Same goes for HD titles, these should get a seperate listing because they are seperate games and, more importantly, have seperate pages.
The infobox thing is a little confusing, though. So if anything I'd be inclined to include the artbook in the infobox appearances as well for the sake of uniformity. Though it should probably have a shortened title to fit properly, something like "First Ten Years Artbook".
Do you mean putting every transcript on a single page or creating a page with a list of links to the individual transcript pages?
If number one, please no. Transcripts are too lengthy for that.
If number two, that is what categories are for. All transcript pages should be added to their respective <game> cutscenes category. You could create a page called Cutscenes and redirect that to Category:Cutscenes. That category is a little messy right now while I'm reorganizing things, but it should be neatly organized when done.
You can probably do without the dividers in the AE navbox. The current guides on the wiki are all contained to one page per level I think. Also can you take off the (level) suffix?
I've looked at those automated things and bots a couple of times, but I just can't figure them out =/ It's not really something I want to bother figuring out either. Problem with the wanted pages thing is that the vast majority of red links on there are only linked once. So even if you could automate it, it wouldn't be of much help sadly.
Manco, I altered your permissions. I think you should be able to edit or delete threads now, which includes messages on user walls. Archived talk pages aren't part of this, though. But it's something.
Not sure if you can do it permission wise, but if you can feel free to unlink them where possible.
That's something I've been doing, but it's a manual process to remove them from every single user page so it kinda takes a while. I have no idea why Wikia was designed like that, it's incredibly annoying.
Nice work! Thanks.
The Brain Slurgs are, for now anyway, known as 'Brain Slurgs' and as such they are not unknown. Even if they would be, its not worth dedicating a category to.
Categories need to cover a much wider range of things and be much less specific than the things you've listed.
1. Cities is already covered by Locations and does not need any subcategories. In addition there are only 2 known cities at this point anyway, not enough for a category.
2. Vertabrates and invertebrates are unnecessarily specific and are both covered by Species .
3. There are barely any unknown species worth mentioning and thus no need for a category.
