Welcome Back![edit]

I've set your user rights so you shouldn't see the CAPCHA again. --Robkelk (talk) 23:53, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

I just changed your rights[edit]

You now have the ability to undo somebody else's changes by reverting pages to previous versions. Here's hoping you'll never need to. --Robkelk (talk) 13:26, 5 July 2016 (UTC) Me Too!

Thank you for the new categories![edit]

Thanks for adding all of those new categories - that should help people find freebies that they're looking for.

Here's something to consider: When I add categories to index pages, I put a sort key of a single space on the categories so that the indexes are sorted to the start of the category page. It's easy to do - at the end of the category tag, add a pipe character and a space (for example, "Category:Dollygirl| " instead of "Category:Dollygirl") It makes a big difference when a category has a large number of index pages, the way Category:Wardrobe does.

--Robkelk (talk) 12:32, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Your welcome Rob. But you were the one to identify the subcategories. I just took your idea and applied it. As you know I am a firm believer in auto-generating pages. Keeps you out of trouble but I also know that creating a new page can be a pita.

So what pages do I put the category coding in? Like the Wardrobe page? or on the individual product pages? or the category page? Not clear where this should go. How about an example you can point me to.--Dollygirl (talk) 18:15, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

When in doubt, add the category; we can always figure out what we want later and make changes. We aren't consistent for what we have, too - the rule for "historical" categories like Victorian and Renaissance‎ is to use the most narrow category only (16th century Crossbow Prop has category Renaissance‎ but doesn't have category Historical), but the rule for "wardrobe" categories like Glasses and Jewelry is to use the narrow category and the wider category (DAZ Eastern Dragon Spectacles has category Glasses and category Wardrobe). So we may as well add the categories everywhere that they apply until everybody decides how we want to use them. --Robkelk (talk) 15:25, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

PFDLives is closing[edit]

I'm adding this to the Talk pages of all active users, including myself. Since my Talk page has become the de facto chat page for the wiki, please reply there.

PFDLives has announced that they're most likely closing on August 1: http://pfdlives.com/pfd/index.php?topic=8235.0 - login required to view

Maybe, if they can get enough donations, they can remain open longer ... but the domain name is only registered until 2018.

This means all of the freebies on pfdlives.com will either be moving or disappearing. (Some of those freebies are listed here, but not all of them.)

Please, spread the word about this ... and help ensure that any freebie not behind a login is saved in the Wayback Machine.

Thanks for all the images![edit]

Thank you for all of the images you uploaded last weekend! Another batch that size and we'll rank eighth by number of images on the list of wikis at Miraheze.

I do appreciate the work you put into this, even if I don't say so very often.

DynamicPageList3 has been installed[edit]

Have fun with the multi-category search! --Robkelk (talk) 13:53, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

Thank you I will!--Dollygirl (talk) 16:43, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

It works!!!!! Yeah I have a sample on my sandbox page. The list starts off with a page that has not been created, Template:Extension DPL, is there a reason for this? Now to see if I can make a page that allows you to fill in the boxes to get a list of possible pages that are of interest. Thank you very much for getting the capability. I think it will enhance the user's experience with feature. --Dollygirl (talk) 17:23, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi Dollygirl, I toyed around with this a while today, see: https://poserdazfreebies.miraheze.org/wiki/User:3doutlaw/sandbox I was able to get a hair table (the middle table) that was the "AND" (or intersect) of Hair and Dawn (as a test) but there were two issues: (1) Since the description of the page is just tacked on after the Freebiebox and not indicated by a "Chapter" or heading, I could not get the description to be included cleanly as a table cell. This is not the end of the world, but maybe the Description should start having a heading, so that it can be called out dynamically? (2) There are a lot of Hairs on the Dawn/Hair page that are NOT part of the Dawn category. Since they were added manually to the Dawn/Hair page, as a Re-FIT, per the wording on the page. This means the "intersect" or "AND" of the two categories is less complete than the Dawn/Hair page itself. So instead of doing that, I needed to start with the Category of Hair and "intersect it with the "linksfrom=Dawn/Hair", which worked, but something to be aware of... --3doutlaw (talk) 19:02, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi folks! We could (and probably should) add Category:Dawn to those pages. --Robkelk (talk) 21:15, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Special Barnstar Hires.png The Special Barnstar
For repeatedly being the voice of reason when I need to make decisions. Robkelk (talk) 20:01, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Thank you Rob. It truly is your vision that controls my words. Years of having to complete large projects makes you learn the importance of keeping the focus on the task and making sure people remember where they want to go. Makes it easy when the project is one you believe in.--Dollygirl (talk) 20:22, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Thank you and I hope you don't mind[edit]

First: a very big Thank You! for creating all those pages for the Fantasy creatures. I hope you don't mind, but I edited some to have the same formatting as the other pages on the wiki. ";" for the name of the resource and ":" for the links. Forgive me? Kerya (talk) 08:42, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Nothing to forgive Kerya. I get lazy and rum dummy after doing page after page. So I do not pay attention of detail like I should. You and Glaseye cleaning up my messes is much appreciated. I learned my lesson a long time ago that I am not perfect and ownership is not mine to claim. So all is cool. I just regret you had to make the changes. --Dollygirl (talk) 16:05, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! And you definitely are NOT lazy. Kerya (talk) 08:08, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
