== LSL Syntax highlighting on the wiki ==
  
== reviewer status ==

Greetings, who's responsible at LL for the wiki? The syntax highlighting for LSL is really out-of-date. Could you give me a name of who I'd have to talk to? Or could you forward [[User:Kireji_Haiku/Ultraedit Syntax Highlight‎|this link to a third-party editor]] to her/him as a reference, to the best of my knowledge it is up to date. -- [[User:Kireji Haiku|Kireji Haiku]] 05:21, 8 October 2012 (PDT)

: Kireji, thanks for getting in touch! I appreciate you compiling these improvements. I haven't worked closely on the wiki in awhile and I don't think we have a current wiki "sysadmin" but I'll ask around. {{TorSig}} <font size="1">on 2012-10-08 @ 5:51 AM Pacific</font>

Torley, I was wondering why my status as a reviewer was removed? Not sure if this is related to what happened earlier today but any insight either from you or Alexa would be appreciated.

== 2 weird articles ==
 
Heyas! Me again :-)<br>
 
Just stumbled about these two articles which feature the exact same content and which titles are '''wacko''' o.O. Can you fix?
 
*[[Region down regions down region down regions down]]
 
*[[Rollback rollback rollback roll back roll back]]

::OK, am done Fixing all micro formatting flaws (that I could find) in main namespace KB articles.
 
::Not much but here's what I found, noted and didn't correct on my own but here's what I remember right now:
 
::[[What is an avatar key?]] is same as [[What is a UUID?]]. Should be "an" UUID anyway, or?
 
::Three images in [[Tips and Tricks: Better Building with Primfficiency!]] aren't working ([https://d3.parature.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=4417&task=knowledge&questionID=4116 weren't working in Parature either]).
 
::Also, the [[Style Guide]] mentions that the first appearance of trademarked terms should have their related trademark symbols. [[Template:Seal]] contains the terms "Second Life" and "Linden Lab". Would be clever to add ® there, then we won't have to manually fix it in each article for the actual content.
 
::Maybe a link to the [[Community Translation Project]] would be a good idea in there. We're having no obvious link where people are encouraged to translate articles (would be of great benefit for the CT Project.

::: What a journey it's been! Fixed those and added notes where necessary. "Would be clever..." is VERY CLEVER INDEED! I'll let the list know (for this and other localization tasks that are related to KB work but not in the Doc Team's direct responsibilities). Also, I want to promote CTP more but need to get Noelle & Team's approval.

:Heyas :-)
 
:Yeah, was an awesome editing rampage you had there! It [[User:Zai_Lynch/Wiki_Spammer_Ranking|pushed you up to #3]] ^_^
 
:Alerted by an edit of [[User:JamesG Comsys|JamesG Comsys]], I noticed that there are three articles currently linking to a non-existend [[Concierge Support contact information]] article. These are:
 
:* [[Linden Lab Official:Private Region (Island) Transfer Process]]
 
:* [[Linden Lab Official:What's Concierge service and how do I get it?]]
 
:* [[Linden Lab Official:What are the different levels of account membership?]]
 
:I guess [[Concierge Support contact information]] might be one of the articles that should still be in Parature, since LL only makes these available to people with the right account status. So the blank Wiki article would best be removed and the LLO article links updated to point back to parature.

== Templates ==
 
Heyas :-)<br>
 
To remarks about templates. One is related to the [[Template:Navbox]] subpages. I think, rather than using templates inside a navbox, it would be better to use a navbox inside a template. The advantages are: More freedom to change the appearance and less to type when you want to include it in an article. <br>
 
So instead of
 
<pre>
 
{{Navbox
 
|title={{Navbox/Adult-title}}
 
|content={{Navbox/Adult}}
 
}}</pre>
 
You'd create one [[Template:Adult Navbox]] and then use a <nowiki>{{</nowiki>Navbox|title=something|content=something else}} inside of it. You'd just have to add <nowiki>{{</nowiki>Adult Navbox}} to articles (looks cleaner) and you can style changes in the Adult Navbox without having to change the Navbox template (or all articles using it).
 
 
Another thing: some tags don't like wikicode as an argument. They don't interpret it as wikicode. <nowiki><videoflash>, <lsl> and <pre></nowiki> belong to these. They need to be treated with a <nowiki>{{</nowiki>#tag|parameter|argument1=value1|argument2=value2}} kind of setup, see [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Magic_words#Formatting the one on the bottom here]. I changed it for [[Template:KBvideo]].

P.S: After I realized that "greets" isn't a proper way to say "sincerly yours" in a less formal way in English, I'm in the dilemma of lacking a flowery phrase to end my mails and comments :-/ ^^
 
: Hey Zai! I thought about "it would be better to use a navbox inside a template" too. But here's the problem: then what happens if I want to change the UNIVERSAL STYLE of all those navboxes? Or, what if I just want to include the article listing WITHOUT the box, as on [[:Category:Adult]]? Anyway, we're still in the early stages here, so if this ends up being awkward, it surely will be replaced by a better way. That's evolution.
 
: I'll check [[Template:KBvideo]] soon and appreciate your attention to detail.

:: I thought this through some more (nested templates demand nested logic!) and now clearly understand the [[Template:Navbox]] benefits you're pointing out to me! I also misunderstood how styles get applied, so ignore my "UNIVERSAL STYLE" question. I'm going to make your suggested ''superior'' change to the "Adult" and "Xstreet" ones shortly. Good to catch this early! <font color="#ff0080">'''- [[Image:Torley-favicon.png]] [[User:Torley Linden|Torley]] on 2009-10-12 @ 12:39 PM PST'''</font>
 
 
:::Very welcome :-) btw: The <nowiki>{{#tag...etc</nowiki> markup workaround is attributed to Kuraiko. We had the same problem yesterday in another Wiki and he found the solution. Some documentation is really hidden away where you'd not expect it to be ^^

Just a short heads-up, that you pasted the wrong URL [https://wiki.secondlife.com/w/index.php?title=Funny&diff=prev&oldid=459502 over here]. I dunno which is the right one, or I would have corrected it... :-)<br>

My work has moved me into other areas at Linden Lab and I'm no longer a wiki co-admin, so please don't expect a reply here. Occasionally, I post updates on my my.secondlife.com feed.

LSL Syntax highlighting on the wiki

Greetings, who's responsible at LL for the wiki? The syntax highlighting for LSL is really out-of-date. Could you give me a name of who I'd have to talk to? Or could you forward this link to a third-party editor to her/him as a reference, to the best of my knowledge it is up to date. -- Kireji Haiku 05:21, 8 October 2012 (PDT)

Kireji, thanks for getting in touch! I appreciate you compiling these improvements. I haven't worked closely on the wiki in awhile and I don't think we have a current wiki "sysadmin" but I'll ask around. - Torley-favicon.png on 2012-10-08 @ 5:51 AM Pacific
I also got an up-to-date LSL syntax highlighting bundle for TextMate if that helps. If you want a copy, post me an email-address where to send it. Thanks! -- Kireji Haiku 06:54, 8 October 2012 (PDT)
Oh and while you're at it, please update the editor in the Second Life viewers, too! Thanks. -- Kireji Haiku 00:41, 9 October 2012 (PDT)
