Work In Progress Campaign Settings Edit

So, for self-contained articles the incomplete policy works pretty well, but how do we feel about incomplete campaign settings? Something like this is technically incomplete, but I'd feel like an ass telling them to sandbox it until it was really fully finished, plus I don't think we'd ever have any campaign settings in there at all ever under those strict requirements. So how do we want to deal with them? Is it fine as is? Can we allow campaign settings to link to a default incomplete page for missing sections? Is it fine if they remove the dead links until the pages are live (my preferred solution I think, since it provides users a better idea how complete the setting is)? Something else I'm not thinking of? - TarkisFlux 16:49, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

I'll respond to all this a bit later tonight, but I think putting a "completeness measure" from like 1 to 5 or whatever on the campaign settings page is probably a good idea. Surgo 17:37, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
Dead links show as red (at least to me) while live links show as blue - seeing a page 'bleeding' seems indication enough. (Makes me think of wounds that need to be healed :) ) - Reddir 17:43, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
I assume you mean something like Template:Campaign Setting Rating Surgo? Just without the categories and with the wording tweaked? - TarkisFlux 00:21, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

Author + Custodian Edit

To conform to Guideline #2, is there an author template that includes both the original Author and the current Custodian of the article?

If not, how should it be added? (I am unfamiliar with the ins and outs of wiki markup.) - Reddir 17:40, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

It's in the author template. If you add this line |adopter={Your Name Here} after the author line it'll update all the relevant stuff automagically.
Also, please don't forget to sign your posts Reddir. There's a button for it at the top or you can just put ~~~~ at the end of your comments. - TarkisFlux 18:12, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the tip on the 'adopter' tag. Looks cool + automagically, love it!
re signing, I try to remember, but it seems I still forget at times. Hope to do better. --Be well 18:47, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
