Template talk:Mindcrack

From the unofficial fan-run MindCrack and HermitCraft wiki

What are the feelings on using this? Other wiki's often have something similar, so I'm ok with the concept. I'm not particularly thrilled with how it looks - none of the existing page content is centered, and members avatars and images aren't always on the same line. If we are going to keep it I'd advocate for right aligning everything and formating it so names and avatars stay together. --Atharsea (talk) 03:26, 31 July 2013 (CEST)

I like the idea...it is not easy to access the other MindCrackers' pages from their counterparts, which is why they exist everywhere on Wikipedia. I would just recommend that a subsection separates whitelisted and non-whitelisted members. I would even think that ones listing the members' pages in general would be useful (ie. one on Etho would have him in the header and would have his collaborations, major builds, and other relevant pages like videos included) should the Admin approve of this kind of addition to the wiki. --Aejrogota (talk) 04:29, 31 July 2013 (CEST)
I agree... not much else to say... --Mega (talk) 05:26, 31 July 2013 (CEST)

I changed the template to use the Navbox template from the MediaWiki website. What do you think about this?--Admin 08:04, 6 August 2013 (CEST)

I think it looks much better now. My only point of note would be the MCFS. Perhaps a separate template should be made for them? The active/inactive roster could be set at the time that MCFS ceased to be. If this is so I presume that a HermitCraft one would also be in order. --Aejrogota (talk) 08:42, 6 August 2013 (CEST)
MCFS is too massive and inconsistent. There's no good way to tell which members became inactive before the shutdown of the server; many of them are guesses.--Admin 08:45, 6 August 2013 (CEST)
It still seems out of place on this template. Maybe a section at the bottom including "Related articles" can be listed. This can be then grouped with HermitCraft and other important pages like Category:Collaborations, Category:Structures and the other listed items under "The World of MindCrack" and "Browse the website" on the main page. --Aejrogota (talk) 09:07, 6 August 2013 (CEST)

In reference to my edit:[edit]

  • Should madcow be listed under unofficial members?
  • Should former members be distinguished somehow? LPers/non-LPers? BdoubleO-BTC-Etho-GB-Paul-thejims/Others?
  • Should one-time guests such as CH33ZY_89 and Pacguin be listed?
  • What about reoccurring guests ("honorary members") such as AmethystRaindrop and Dinnerbone?

Regarding the new guests:[edit]

In June 2018 Guude started allowing Mindcrackers to invite guests onto the server. He invited Breon and Cone in June, Pak invited Honney in June and announced it in July, and then Guude invited Ryuski in July. The Mindcrack Twitter account called all four of them "VIPs on the Mindcrack Server", and I'm not sure whether they should be combined with Dire and Shree in the unofficial section or have a separate section, and what that section would be called. Also unofficial members doesn't seem like the proper term for the VIP guests Dire and Shree, they're officially allowed on the server and to group events.
