  • Ok so you seem to be the only active admin on this wiki so I thought I'd bring this up here. Traditionally, on wikis a "stub" is a bare bones article with little or no information on them. The problem is some of the articles on this wiki in that category aren't actually stubs, they're just missing a couple of specific details. On many other wikis, to deal with this problen there exists an "incomplete" template, wherein an editor can specifically request a certain aspect to be added to a page that is somewhat complete as it is. I went and made a prototype template on my userpage as a concept, it currently works like this:

    {{User:TheLobsterCopter5000|Reason here}}

    which does this:

    What do you think about the idea of adding it (obviously in the template namespace though...)? I would also propose the option to add details to the delete and speedy delete template be added (and maybe putting boxes around them to make them stand out more from regular text).

    • Oh, well that's a good idea XD I haven't been around lately due to having a lack of things to do here now, but that would be a great idea. Although maybe adding a little picture on the side of the template could be nice too, I know a lot of wikia do that.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I guess that could work. Got anything in mind that I could use?

        Loading editor
    • Well if you can add something, what about this?

    • Ok, I'm a little stuck here, I've got the following: <div style="background-color: #00B7EB; margin: 0 1em; padding: 0 10px; border: 1px solid #0000FF;">[[File:Incomplete.png|90px]]'''Eh? This article or section is incomplete. You can help {{SITENAME}} by [{{fullurl:{{FULLPAGENAME}}|action=edit}} expanding or finishing it].

      What I can't figure out is how to section off the image from the text like it is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Cleanup to make it look neat.

    • Ah, got it working now. I got some help from a friend.

      So shall I make the template page now?

    • Oh that's cute, I like that but I wonder if maybe the colors should be a little more matching with the wiki colors if possible? Anyway sure, go ahead.

        Loading editor
    • Well, I was planning on making each template a different colour, but I could make them a more yellowish colour if you'd prefer. I don't particularly mind either way.

        Loading editor
    • Well I know it isn't a big deal, but it will help look a little better with the rest of the wiki's theme.

        Loading editor
    • Alrighty, I'll do that

        Loading editor
    • It's done: Template:Incomplete

      You were right, it does look better like this!

        Loading editor
    • Thank you, I do a lot of color based work so I feel like i've learned a thing or two from it after so long XD

        Loading editor
    • Sorry if I keep bothering you, but I'd really like to get an admin's approval before I make any major changes. I've designed a new delete template, and I'd like to know what you think of it: https://kinmosa.wikia.com/wiki/User:TheLobsterCopter5000

        Loading editor
    • Oh no it's fine XD I'd rather you talk to me anyway, even if I'm not around often lately. I'd be shocked to return and see all the effort I put into this place (and this wiki itself) changed extremely.

      I like the concept, but I feel like the red color (pretty as it is) is a bit wrong for this one. It looks odd paired with the picture and that vibrant blue text. Firstly, I'd suggest changing that black text into white. Sometimes that can help make a userbox/template easier on the eyes.

        Loading editor
    • Ok, do you think this new colour looks good?

        Loading editor
    • That's much better/easier to read, I hope I didn't inconvenience you though.

        Loading editor
    • No it's fine. I just wanted to make sure I made the template look as nice as possible. Shall I replace the old template now or is there anything else you'd like to see changed?

        Loading editor
    • I think it's good, go ahead :3

        Loading editor
    • I'm having bit of trouble coming up with a good image and tagline for the stub template. I've got 2 concept designs but I'm not sure how I feel about either of them. Which one do you think looks better, and can you think of a better image and tagline I could use? https://kinmosa.wikia.com/wiki/User:TheLobsterCopter5000

        Loading editor
    • I think my prefered one would be the second one out of them both.

      Um.... I'm not sure if this is any good, but maybe one of these?

      I was thinking we could use something from one of her quotes I liked:

      "I think that klutzes are cute! To be honest, I tossed your notebook into a bucket full of water earlier... Klutzes are cute, right?"

      But maybe we could say... "Klutzes are cute, but Article Stubs arent!"

    • Ok, so large images don't always work all that well in templates, so I made 2 versions. So these are the 4 current candidates: https://kinmosa.wikia.com/wiki/User:TheLobsterCopter5000

        Loading editor
    • I really like the first one, out of the four

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, it does look kinda nice. Should I add it or would you like to try some other design ideas?

        Loading editor
    • I'd say for now it's good
