Hi there, Composingliger - welcome to WikiFur! Thanks for your article contributions, and for keeping WikiFur Central up to date. Let me know if you need anything on my user talk page. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 13:40, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the warm welcome GreenReaper. While I only have had a little bit of experience with Wikis in general, I hope that I'll be able to contribute where I can. ^^
Ta! --Composingliger 05:53, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Well, I'm sure you'll learn quickly! Thanks for getting permission for that picture of Mab. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 05:57, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Hmmm... I just noticed that the templates on the front page have been locked now... Hmmm It's a bit of a catch 22 with Wikis isn't it. On one hand you WANT people to be able to maintain, update and improve on things... On the other, there's always people who just like to ruin and vandalise things. I guess it's probbaly the right thing to do, especially being the main page... But a shame that it has to be done. =/ --Composingliger 07:06, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
They were locked temporarily due to someone vandalising them. They should be unlocked now (unless it's happened again). --GreenReaper(talk) 19:11, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
And yes, that's OK. Amber said that it's fine to use her art for any of the related articles. --Composingliger 07:10, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Search Image[edit]

Hi again. I've just been wondering about the search image for WikiFur - Search logo.png. I think it would be nice if it were possible to drop the Wikicities logo and replace it with something of our own. Is that possible (I've noticed that the image itself was locked) or is this a perminant part of the Wikicities branding and thus unchangeable? --Composingliger 17:41, 20 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Hi! It is indeed possible. If you have a suggested alternative, please upload it and link it on the logo ideas page, and if I and possibly others think it looks good, I'll add it in. --GreenReaper(talk) 17:44, 20 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Well I had been considering just a simple resize of MelSkunk's logo - Wikifurmel-vs-1.png - as an intirim solution, or even Seth C Triggs new one. Personally I just find the Wikicities logo to be a bit ugly (and slightly confusing over the search) and think anything would be an improvement at the moment. ^^ *Yawn* Anyway ~ 4:30am! Really should go to sleep now. --Composingliger 18:06, 20 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I think I'll use Seth's for there, since we've already got Mel's image once but your button would go great as a link button - I've put it on the about page. Thanks! :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 19:26, 20 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Strange layout issue[edit]

Hi GreenReaper, I've just been tinkering with the Furfire article which for some very odd and unusual reason was causing the entire Wiki CSS layout to collapse in a rather horrible way (See image). The strange thing is that it only seems that it only affected the most recent revision of the article despite there being the same markup in the article. (I originally noticed something wrong with rev. 167083 but when I look at it in the history the layout appears to be just fine.

The bit of markup that I believe to be possibly suspect is:

<div style="float:right">__TOC__</div>

Once I removed this it appeared to come good. Does this make any sense to you why this would happen? I even dropped over to IE7 just in case my version of Firefox was on the fritz, but it persisted there too.

It looks like it's fixed now - but I still feel that that was really quite odd. -Composingliger 14:39, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

This is due to a problem with the cached version of such pages when edited by either anonymous users or users with the wikiwyg system turned on, which incorporates additional markup into the page. The root cause is that it encloses things in a span and half of the div is within the span. I had hoped they would have fixed this by now, but it appears not. --GreenReaper(talk) 15:16, 19 October 2007 (UTC)
Alright, in that case I guess there's not all that much more that can be done that hasn't already been fixed. Thanks for the clarification. -Composingliger 15:32, 19 October 2007 (UTC)
