Welcome to the wiki. :) -NottNott (talk) 19:15, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

On talk pages

That's it! Talk pages are just regular pages with a designated purpose. 'User talk:' is the namespace.

At the moment, because the wiki is COMPLETELY stock with no extensions or anything, the notification system won't work well. Normally I can type something like {{re|Dlskidmore}} to notify you regardless of the talk page you posted to. As it stands, you shouldn't get notified if I replied to your message you left on my talk page. I might be wrong, but you shouldn't. -NottNott (talk) 19:36, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

Yup! You can stack multiple colons to indent as well. Talk pages are pretty easy, don't you think? There's extensions that can make this system even more foolproof, but I really don't think the learning curve is that hard.

Or like this.

So, assuming the notification system was working, and you sent me a message on my talk page:

Something -Dlskidmore

:{{re|Dlskidmore}} Response. -NottNott

Is how discussion would work. -NottNott (talk) 19:45, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

Replace Text

Hey admin, try out Special:ReplaceText. It'll let you do what you're doing across the entire wiki. -NottNott (talk) 19:46, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

So now you tell me... Seriously though, I didn't want a universal replacement, there are a few key references left, and I didn't use the exact same replacement in all cases. Sometimes it was an extraneous word I dropped, sometimes I put lens selection, sometimes lens. Dlskidmore (talk) 01:41, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

Section headers

Heya, thanks for the good edits. Just a heads up, you want to use

==Section title==

with two equal signs on both sides of the title. With only one equal sign, the header is the equivalent of the header at the top of the page. -NottNott (talk) 21:09, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

Gotcha. Will try to remember Dlskidmore (talk) 14:55, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

EndMyopia Wiki: Launched!

Thanks to everyone who has done a terrific job on getting the wiki up to scratch. Definitely a team effort, and I think it's paid off quite nicely. Always more to be done, but the basics look pretty taken care of. Wiki's looking good. We're on the front page of the main site, it's been promoted in Facebook and there should be a video coming out at some point.

Admin specific: the next two to four weeks will be a good barometer of how much vandalism can be expected over time, and whether things need to be changed or not. I'm heavily in favour of keeping it 'create an account, make an edit', but if need be there can be additional restrictions.

Try to check in on Special:RecentChanges every once in a while to see if anything unsavoury is happening. I might be overestimating the amount of vandalism we'll get, we must wait and see. Don't be afraid to block users if necessary.

Cheers! -NottNott (talk) 08:53, 20 June 2020 (UTC)
