My absence

Hey Quottlol and JWM,

I'm sorry I haven't been on here in so long, I have been super busy with school and work, but I think I have found a way to balance that and still work on the wiki. I don't want this wiki to have another admin who ditched. I will try to edit more regularly. Please let me know if there is anything that needs doing or updating that only an admin can do, such as the top nav bar or any other things that you think I might be able to help with.

Sorry!
Megan

Hey Megan,

No worries. I think you are a good admin. The wiki should be at the very very bottom of your priority list.

Good call adding Far Cry on the drop down list. GSP's Far Cry 5 is going to be hilarious!

I saw that you made changes to the top nav. One thing that might be a little confusing to visitors is the way some of the items are grouped. For example, the "Live Stream" tab has 7 Days to Die, Fallout 4 Pimps, Gang Beasts, etc. I suspect not many people associate say Fallout 4 Pimps as a "live stream" series. Skyrim You Choose and Streaming Pile (a page I would like to make) might be better candidates to put under "Live Stream." Similar goes for the "Kinect" tab.

Also, I'm thinking of changing up how the series are displayed on the main page since you're going to be adding new ones. I think one way is to order it year-by-year. I'm not entirely sure though since there are so many different types of series. I want to make it easier for visitors to navigate; just not sure what the best method is. Anyways, that'll be further along the line.

Good point about the nav bar, I was trying to put in every series that has a live stream in it, but people don't typically associate the entire series with live streaming, I settled for Life is Strange, Mario Kart Playoffs and Skyrim You Choose. I chose Life is Strange because they have done a couple of live streams with that series, even though it is not generally a live stream series.

I'm not sure about year by year for the front page, many of the series encompass many years, and some of them start in a different year than the majority of the series. I think the way it is now is okay, I can't really think of a way to improve it, other than maybe adding an "Active Series" section in the beginning, since those are the pages that are most likely going to be the most popular.

The new nav bar setup looks good. I know it's not easy trying to create a dropdown menu that both makes sense and isn't too complicated.

Thanks for the feedback! Previously, the front page navigation was organized by type. "For Pimps" was grouped in one section and another section grouped all of Jason's impressions etc. The current setup is Ongoing Series (active), Occasional/Annual Series (semi-active), and Archived Series (not-active).

Having finally started to figure out the UI a bit, I went ahead and put "God (7 Days to Die)" on its own page, stripping it out of "Minor Characters." Also updated the 7D2D links menu (whatever it's actually called) with the right link. What I don't know how to do is to add categories to the new page, so if anyone wants to go in there have at it.

Yeah, the editor may take a little bit of figuring out. It seems like you've already figured things out but I recommend taking a look at http://game-society-pimps.wikia.com/wiki/Help:VisualEditor http://game-society-pimps.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Contents is also pretty helpful. If you've have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
