Article structure

I think the Yorkman would fit better in its own article, which would describe the paper and link to the current version. Issues would be located at The Yorkman/Issue 1, etc., and this user page would be left for you, the user who has actually written the paper. After all, I think user pages should be pages for users, not pages for game information that isn't user-specific.

We could easily use a template to link to the latest version (or simply include the number of the latest edition, to be linked to like [[The Yorkman/Issue {{LatestYorkmanIssue}}|this]]). After a new issue is uploaded the template could be changed just once and all pages across the wiki that linked to the latest version would be updated at the same time.

If I don't hear back from you, I'll probably move the current issue to The Yorkman/Issue 1 and create The Yorkman as a brief description of the paper with a link to the latest version.

I enjoyed issue 1, by the way. Keep it up! — Elembis (talk) 05:23, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the tips, I'll move that around later today. I'm a bit new to this whole Wiki business, y'see. Thanks for the code improvements, too! :) -- The Yorkman 18:11, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

I've moved everything around as suggested. Templates are all a bit over my head, how would I go about creating one to link to the latest version? -- The Yorkman 19:48, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Editing help needed

Is there any way to get a picture to link to another page within the wiki, thus allowing more direct links when we run small adverts to pronmote other groups? -- The Yorkman 12:39, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes, but it's messy; see Help:Navigational images on Wikipedia. One problem is that, on wikis, people expect that clicking on an image will take them to that image's page. I think a better thing to do would be to add a text link to the page under each ad. In fact, I'll do that right now. — Elembis (talk) 03:08, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Image formats

Images with solid colors, like Image:War.JPG, look better in PNG or GIF format. JPG is better for photos and other images with many color changes. (Also, I think lowercase file extensions, as in .jpg, look nicer.) — Elembis (talk) 17:30, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Colonial Police Ad

Here's a link to an animated CP ad I made a while ago: CP.gif --MickR 22:41, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Cripes, you're good! We'll add it into issue 2 :) -- The Yorkman 08:45, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Foreign Correspondents

You guys might think about Native correspondents and interviews (with imcomplete translations of course). Could be pretty cool... Tyler Whitney 15:37, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

An' fer all yous Yorksmen dere, Redbeard O'Connor holds ya folks no grudge fer butcherin' me at yarr purty lil' villages gates. I ain'ts ded yet, an' now I knows Pirates aren't wanted dere! Hohoo!

You've got our curiosity - if you have any information on this klone kult, e-mail us and we'll look at running a story. Who are they? What do they want? Do they know they've spelt clone wrong? etc... -- The Yorkman 21:42, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

They also spelled "Cult" wrong. Just sayin' is all. --Black Joe 23:45, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
