The Help Desk is where you can leave questions, comments or suggestions about the BSC Wiki for the administrators (Greer, Pigeonrat and Penny Lane).

If you have a question about basic use or editing of the wiki, we suggest you check the WikiGuide first if you haven't already done so.

Just testing!

This is what a help request should look like. Pigeonrat 19:00, 22 February 2008 (PST)

Suggestion for references

Okay, so maybe I'm being a little obsessive, but I think it would be helpful/kind of neat if some of the details got referenced to a book, like in the CG. You know, like how Wiki has the small link [HP4] when refrencing events in Harry Pooter and the Goblet of Fire on the Harry Potter pages. Something like "Mallory admits she has a crush on Ben Hobart [32]" Plus, that'll make it more like the CG, and I know it's helpful for RPG uses. Just a suggestion. Now it's time to muddle my way through figuring out how to make a page, ack. (chicken queen 08:33, 9 March 2008 (PDT))

I'm not entirely sure how to respond to the help requests, so I'm just going to start a new request. I think that we are intending to put in references to each book when we can, in line. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "small link" but if you mean numbers that refer to the footnotes on the Wiki, then I think we are still working out how to do that.

LOL, yeah, that's what I meant, the little footnote refrence thingys. I'm very new, haha. chicken queen 09:16, 9 March 2008 (PDT)
Well, for major events I think we've been doing it. But sometimes when I edit stuff I just do it off the top of my head, so I don't know which book exactly this fact was mentioned in. I guess that if people want to add citations they can do it and if you have them--like when penny lane, pigeonrat, and i are working from the cg project data--it's probably a good idea to include them. but i don't know how to do those footnote thingies. :( User:Greer 22:41, 9 March 2008 (PDT)
Quick and useless note to say that I don't know how the heck to make the little numbers work, either--they use the ref tag on Wikipedia, and when I copied the Peter Lerangis article (including the ref tags) from Wikipedia to here, I tried to make the refs work correctly, but couldn't figure it out. As at least a stopgap, I would suggest just putting the book's number after the fact in parentheses, like the CG does, for example (M26). Pigeonrat 19:35, 15 March 2008 (PDT)
I would also suggest using this method to reply to topics posted here: hit the edit tab up top, and then below the last person's comment, type a colon before your reply to indent it (or if they indented with a colon, add another colon), and end your comment with four tildes which will turn into your automated signature.

Since this discussion, we've created the citation template for this sort of thing! Pigeonrat 08:44, 22 May 2008 (PDT)
Could someone protect "Kristy's Big Day," or find some way to keep people from spamming it? It's really annoying, being the only one to revert all the annoying spam/vandalism from unregistered users. --Ramses XLII 16:46, 24 June 2009 (PDT)

Summaries from back of books?

Just wanted to point out a question I asked at Talk:Book article format re: summaries from the back of books. I noticed a couple of articles (6 and 7 for sure) have them, just wondering if we want to put the summary on every book article, or remove them altogether. (chicken queen 19:55, 7 January 2011 (PST))

I like having the summaries there. If you have the physical books and want to add summaries, go for it. Greer 03:34, 29 March 2011 (PDT)
