So guys, I am the Semantic MediaWiki coder here. As most of you know, we have the Semantic MediaWiki Extension, and we have made use of the FormEdit (well i have). Until I am shown how to use Properties which will make stuff like lists and heck of alot more possible, I'm working on the forms. I'm trying to make them more fancy, because 1. its cooler and 2. there likely are dyslexic users such as myself. I want to make them llook fancy, perhaps with pictures, colors etc. which are all easy for me to do. I'd just like to know what you want before making CreateForms (forms which I made myself, using both Tim's Create Article template and my form edit.
Now there are those whose internet is slow anyway, I cant force you to go get google chrome or something to make internet faster, so if you dont like form edit because its slower than normal editing, then you dont have to use it. The joy of FormEdit is that we can make it look like however we want, I've figured out everything so if you want I could make the form collapsible like this one (first time I tried to do that I messed up, it was messy, but I've figured out now), or I could put a picture relevant to the form like this, or I could just put a nice background, the precursor artifact could have perhaps a bunch of precursor orb and power cell images in the border or something.
But theres more I can do with that. What could I add to the forms? Perhaps I can add a checkbox that you tick and the stub template appears, or you untick and theres no more stub on the page, and same for other templates.
So, what would you like to see? I havent told you that I can make the form in the centre and put the pics of Jak & Daxter you see on the main page to the side of it lol. So, go ahead and this forum is for feedback too. So here's some of the things I can do, say which you want, dont want and your opinions
More colours are pretty if done right!
Put a few images around for a border!
An image that fits alongside the page would be nice.
Make some stuff collapsible, that airship weapon is getting on my nerves
Make everything collapsible already
Just hurry up and finish the forms i dont want anything
We won't add images and colors and backgrounds though, it's fine as it is. We're just looking for possible options to make it easier.
Technobliterator - Talk - Blog 12:54, September 4, 2010 (UTC) Well of course if we were to add images they wouldnt wreck the page, I doubt I'll add backgrounds and if I did it would be something like Eco colour stripes and certainly wouldnt fill even 50% of the whole thing, perhaps no?
