Alright Kuzz, wanted to ask a few questions as I'm either unaware on how to do a task or want to avoid stepping on your toes:
-I've changed the story in Special Events to use the Quote template, I wanted to ask if you knew how to change the position of the quote symbol, in order to have the end quote symbol being at the bottom right instead of top right. It's less obvious with small quotations but looks iffy with large ones.
-12+ Cyl Slam / 12+ Cylinder Slam. I noticed that you may have been the first to employ the actual meaning of the title, over the name given in-game. I was going to change it to the in-game name but didn't want to do that before knowing whether you were ok with it.
-Category pages: a lot of edits recently have been to do with those, to the point where the links are getting cross-referenced all over the place: category pages leading back to themselves, or other category pages, or even category pages of articles categorised within the first category page... etc. Since I don't want to enforce the wrong thing, what's your advice in this situation? I thought category pages would not have categories unless it's a sub-category, but at this point I'm not sure what's what.
Additionally and following on convention: R$ isn't always situated the same, i.e. R$ X, R$X, XR$ or X R$. It doesn't help that RR3 don't use one of the four options exclusively but the one that appears most is R$X (Completion rewards in career and special events). Is it ok to switch templates to this format?
I asked a while back if it was worth having R$ as unit within special challenges. It causes issues with Endurance rewards as it makes the main R$ reward span two lines (quick fix by User:RR3 Michael P by making the whole reward smaller, not just the unit). However, it's not included in race series.
If these are things you've considered and decided against then fair enough, but if you don't have the time then I can do it myself :)
Welcome back, I'm glad you have returned, you have done allot for this site and set a high standard to aspire too.
As you appeared to have stopped as our Admin, the process to adopt Admin Duties was started first by Guillejarque and later by myself, see Thread:41161, this was the start of the process, nothing would have happened until 60 days of inactivity, please do not see this as a mutiny, as the captain had appeared to have left the ship :)
I would like to offer support for Admin Duties, if you want or need any.
Hi Kuzz, I'm a little disappointed not to be added to your admin team, I'm interested to know if there's any particular reason? I can speculate, but thought it better to ask you to understand your view.
Hi Kuzz, while you were away I tried to contact SynergyShade3624, see Thread:41158 regarding Admin duties. Syn has made me an Admin today, I should have taken down the post on Syn's wall when you returned, my mistake. I wanted to check this is OK with you, if not I will downgrade my account.
I have been working on a template page for the tip and FAQ : RR3 Wiki:Tips and FAQ Template, I'm sure you don't mind that. What I wanted to pass by you is the template for a Race series page : RR3 Wiki:Series Template this can be used to create a standard race series page, keep it consistent, with the new style templates. I know you don't like new pages to be pre-filled / outlined, but this Race Series Template could be used to create a new page, if you can allow the pre-filled new page, for a short time, while the data is being added, I think it will help contributes and keep the new pages consistent.
I'm also thinking of a template for car and challenge pages. If FM spring an update on us the templates can be used as page outlines, very quickly, ready for the keen contributors, we have attracted to this site, to add the data.
Alright? Wanted to get your opinion on the "Differs" rewards in FAP400. I thought of two solutions (as it just looks incomplete). Either:
-Work out the rewards based on other races in that event (e.g. Fame on RIR is 200/lap) and maybe use an asterisk along with an explanation underneath the concerned tables to indicate that reward is pretty much out of reach (unless extensive bot-slowing techniques are used)
-Work out the minimum reward by finishing in the lowest position possible whilst still fulfilling the goal (e.g. ≥2,650R$)
Hopefully you find one of the two options to be an improvement. I also wanted to point out that the "R$" in the cell maybe doesn't need to be there? It is, after all, in the column heading and makes the cell too wide for Endurance events, spliting the main R$ reward over two lines.
Is there a particular reason you don't like having the name of the update included along with the version? You also insist on saying the F14 T was introduced in v. 3.3.0 but it wasn't. That's the Race Teams Update with the inclusion of Renault and the Nurburgring. It was actually introduced in v. 3.0, which is the Scuderia Ferrari Update.
"showcasing three generations of Ferrari's Formula One vehicle's." The " 's" is not gramatically correct as well as being redundant: it's already the possessive subject of Ferrari. Saying "alongside" negates the need to use "with" as it is synonymous with "together with". If you wish to use the word "with", the correct grammar in this case would be "along with".
Using "This" instead of "The" makes is specific to that vehicle but that's semantics.
And what is the reason for doing the same for the Veyron GSV, since I don't see the word "Careers" elsewhere in that paragraph?
Whilst we're here, I quite like category pages for which vehicle is in which perfomance ballpark etc, but are category pages for Race Series really that important? As far as I can see, all the links on those category pages are already featured each specific Race Series page already. Sometimes you end up on the category page instead of the race series page you're looking for. Most notably for "12+ Cyl Slam"/"12+ Cylinder Slam". Just a thought.
I guess so. It was just a quick fix to something that was wrong. I may not have fully thought it through with the 's
Along or alongside. Using "alongside with" is something that I've been taught to use because of <whatever> reason but now after a quick look around it may seem incorrect. I think it's more important to say that update 3.0. was released in Dec than saying of Dec 2013 as it for me could indicate that releases are monthly.
If you think that particular phrasing is ambiguous then by all means, adapt it to a style you find more suitable. I personally don't think that it implies monthly releases - if the release date stated included the day, would it imply there were daily updates? - but it doesn't matter a whole lot. I still think knowing the version, name of the update (given by FM on their blog) and month and year of release is useful information when referring to a particular change or event.
For the Veyron, you changed "Thisvehiclewas added in the Career Update (v. 2.5) of August 2014." to "The vehicle was added to the Real Racing 3 car lineup in version 2.5.0 which was released in August 2014.". "Career Update" is how they named that particular update, something to do with the career goals section (the three goals in the main menu) and the Speedrush TV Challenge, as you get a "job" from them.
I've just created an outline table of all the race pages. The idea is to help contributors identify pages that need to be updated, if contributors ask what need updating we can point them to this page:
It's just an outline of the idea at the moment, I plan to go though each race series and add the content. As pages are updated this sheet can be too. Contributors can see pages that need updating and pick a race series page they would like to update.
If it works, as a concept, the 118 car pages could be added as a separate table too.
This site is gaining allot of new, keen contributors, which must be a good thing. If a group of contributors updated the data in the race pages, the pages will be done in no time :)
For point 2. a V=3.5.1 has been added, on pages, to the event data, when editing the source, there is no need to add it to the table, only editors need this information. Pages that have this can easily be identified, as being updated, so editors do not need to re-check the data.
See the source of Ferrari Faceoff to see an example.
I think it's a good idea, it doesn't affect the table, but will be a big help, for editors, who need to identify pre v3.3.1 data, that needs updating.
I hope your hand is OK. Do you need help with Admin duties? I can help part time, it you need any help.
I have completed the Race Series, there are 7 pages that are 100% complete, leaving 60 with some form of editing or additional content. I noticed an notify box on some pages with a message about 3.3.1 data, I was thinking of changeing the box to this on the 60 pages:
