Hi there, thanks for joining BS01! Though the Helryx model is the winner, there are a few more steps to go before everything becomes "official" so that's why we've protected the page and such in the meantime. -- Dorek Talk External Image 20:45, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

Show preview

Hey, thank you for your edits! When you're editing in the future, to the extent possible, please try to place multiple changes in a single edit rather than making several small, back-to-back edits. The "Show preview" button to the right of the "Save changes" button makes this easier by letting you see the final rendered page so you can review your edit before saving it. Condensing changes into one edit makes it easier for other members to look over edits, and it also makes the recent changes list easier to read. Thanks for understanding and for contributing to the wiki! -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 01:04, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

Ok, I’ll be sure to do that. Thanks for letting me know! -- FirespitterVakama (talk) 08:10, 25 February 2021 (EST)

Thanks. To give an example, you could probably condense the last 11 edits that you made to User:FirespitterVakama/List of Disney media (3 edits in about a 5 min period, then a couple hours of break, then 8 edits in about a 30 min period) into two edits by using show preview, treating the preview like a draft, and revising based on that rather than editing over and over again. Not trying to nitpick here, but combining edits like that in the future really will make things easier for the staff and other members. Thanks again! -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 19:41, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
Hi, I'd just want to ask you, if you could try to condense your edits, so they won't clutter the Recent Changes, just like how Morris suggested before. You can edit the full page with one button, instead of editing the individual sections. You can use show preview to see, if your signs have been updated, and you can even check them with show preview each time you update one, but in the end, it would be only one edit instead of 22.--Surel (Talk) 18:52, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
Again, please remember to use the show preview button.... -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 19:29, 15 August 2021 (UTC)

Personal images

Hi! As the above welcome notice notes, you are not allowed to upload personal images, like the "click here" button, to BS01. Instead, please use dedicated image hosting sites like Flickr or imgur and embed them like this: <img>url-of-image</img>. Thanks! -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 19:36, 2 December 2021 (UTC)

  • Oh, I forgot to ask you. Can you go ahead and remove these userpages please, thanks? (this was a typo redirect) -- FirespitterVakama (talk) 04:55 PM, 2 December 2021 (EST)

Done! -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 21:38, 3 December 2021 (UTC)
Thank you! -- FirespitterVakama (talk) 06:18 PM, 3 December 2021 (EST)
Just saw your edit. Here's how you can resize external images:
<img> width="WIDTH_GOES_HERE" height="HEIGHT_GOES_HERE"</img>
(Note that's not the standard way to do it in HTML! This is weird BS01-specific syntax.) So in your case, if you write:
<img> width="160px"</img>
you'll get:

Show preview (again)

Welcome back! As a reminder, please avoid making many small back-to-back edits to the same page. It seems like you made your latest edits because you kept having new ideas for small tweaks to your page, or because you changed your mind on previous changes. That's totally understandable, but it is inconsiderate to other users who read through the recent changes list. To avoid making those kinds of "I changed my mind" edits, once you think an edit is ready and you've proofread it with the show preview button, please leave the edit page open for a couple minutes before saving. After that time, read over the edit again to see if any new ideas stick out at you. If so, you can make additional changes, then repeat the process of waiting a couple minutes, etc. until you are totally satisfied with your changes. Then when you finally save, you'll have made all those changes in a single edit. That is a strategy I often use when editing. Thanks, -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 01:38, 23 December 2022 (UTC)
