  • It'd be nice to get a vector image of the standard Pirate flag for this wiki. There should be a PNG at least in the files section. Can someone with server access (aka matuck) point to that file? Brady 03:03, 3 May 2012 (EDT)
    • I can upload a vector image if someone enables upload of a vector file format. QuazarGuy (talk) 00:43, 18 October 2012 (EDT)
      • I'm going to work on opening up access to admin and bureaucrat. I do not think that Matuck and Caleb are interested in the wiki enough to be actively working on this. SachaOct 25, 2012


  • The standard theme is a bit too boring and claustrophobic. I requested information from PPDE on getting a copy of the theme Germany uses. Unless someone else has a better idea? Brady 03:04, 3 May 2012 (EDT)
    • Personally, I use "modern" skin on here. But a pretty default skin would be nice. Aside from Modern,I like the gumax skin and there are some good ones here -- ItsparaTalk! edits 22:33, 30 August 2012 (EDT)
      • That theme looks great, I can work on the colors and get our standard purple up in here to customize the look a little bit. I would like to not just have a skin but have more than that as well. SachaOct 25, 2012

  • Could we have a link to Library under navigation? QuazarGuy (talk) 00:41, 18 October 2012 (EDT)
    • I think that we should put it under navigation and on the main page under resources. I also think that we should get rid of current events. SachaOct 25, 2012
  • Would it be possible to allow users to choose a default state and have a direct link to that state's main page under navigation? QuazarGuy (talk) 00:41, 18 October 2012 (EDT)
    • I'm not sure but that is fascinating, I will ask Caleb and Itspara SachaOct 25, 2012
  • Add a section called External Links with a link to the website, Twitter, FB, G+, etc. QuazarGuy (talk) 00:41, 18 October 2012 (EDT)
    • I would rather that we have a page that has all the states information about that on one page and simply link to that.

Wiki Organization

  • How could we best utilize categories, sub-paging, templates, etc.? QuazarGuy (talk) 00:47, 18 October 2012 (EDT)

Uploadable Content

  • Could we enable support to upload document type files like .doc(x), .pdf, .w/e? QuazarGuy (talk) 05:16, 19 October 2012 (EDT)
Yes, I believe someone with server access can enable those file uploads. For files like pdf's we may want to use an online viewer (google doc viewer?) so users don't have to download the file for viewing. -- ItsparaTalk! edits 16:48, 22 October 2012 (EDT)
  • We also need to allow upload of vector images like .pdf, .eps, .svg. QuazarGuy (talk) 05:18, 19 October 2012 (EDT)

Wiki Features

  • I could use the ability to embed iframes. I need it to embed some special google maps that allow people to choose a congressional district, etc., for the purpose of organizing. QuazarGuy (talk) 05:34, 19 October 2012 (EDT)
    • I am working on hunting down people to open up access to the Wiki. I dislike having to hunt down one person to do anything especially when that person doesn't really seem all that interested in the wiki. Sacha
