Front Page

Can we add Food or Shackfood as a link on this main page? --Devnullgt 2014-01-14 10:24am EST


We're getting spammed to hell and back. Can we limit posting to registered users and put a captcha or something in place to prevent this horseshit? --ThomW 02:45, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Mehhhhh.. Messed with color scheme. Hated the blue and purple standard links. Tried to match with Shacknews colors. Take it or leave it Indosauros 07:16, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Good job with adapting the CSS to the Wiki. I'm just thinking that underlined active links are a bit too much on a Wiki. I'd keep them in :hover, personally. --07:26, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
I agree -- the quandry I had was the only shack color to use for links is Red, and that is against Wiki format due to red links being uncreated pages. So the only other option was black, which is hard to see on the pages. Links are bold, and not underlined and #333333 now, so I hope that stands out enough. Not sure what else to do.

--TroZ 01:51, 9 October 2009 (UTC)----

i like that, i'm totally going to cop that and act like i came up with it.--Anthonybean 01:53, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks - I've updated it a bit more --TroZ 14:13, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
Updated Again, Included Filters page and other edits --TroZ 20:46, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
I added the following things:
  • Moved the lists from secondary cells into the first cell under the header. THis makes them show up when you hit "edit" next to each header.
  • Made the headers second level instead of third level
  • Added cellspacing=50 on the table to move the columns apart a little
  • Added valign=top to each cell to force to top

Thanks :) --TroZ 21:23, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Does edgewise have to be on every page? I think the answer is yet.

Can I get a link to shackstats somewhere? --Mancide 14:31, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

  • I added your link to the shacker page. seemed like an appropriate place to put it. --Anthonybean 15:23, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
Added this also Indosauros 15:27, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Content Discussion

Customizing Shacknews and Greasemonkey Scripts are exactly the same thing, no? --C0bra 19:13, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Redundant main page

Isn't the new 'Greasemonkey Scripts' link redundant with the 'Customizing Shacknews' link two lines above it? --TroZ 19:14, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Oh you mean like how I mentioned in the section right above this one? --C0bra 19:34, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks TroZ! I wish everyone else was as attentive as you! I fixed it and added a redirect on greasemonkey so searches will make you end up at Customization. --OverloadUT 19:36, 9 October 2009 (UTC)


When issues raised in a discussion are resolved, is it customary to keep the conversation around or can we delete it?

  • If it was a small thing of note, you can delete it. If it is part of a larger conversation/debate, then keep it so we can archive it for future reference. either way, it's retained in the history. --Anthonybean 16:24, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Coop Gameplay Groups

Can the main page be edited so that the Shackbattles link in the table is followed by 'or Coop' with the word coop linking toCoop Gameplay Groups. Thanks TroZ (talk) 15:02, 20 December 2012 (EST)
