  • Hey there. When adding an image to a page, we attempt to position the images as clearly as possible on a page, meaning that the images will mostly be aligned in a "left-right-left" or "right-left-right" sequence. In that regard, the correct image format on a page is [[File:filename.png|thumb|right/left|200px|Description.]]

    I've noticed that every time you add and/or remove an image or switch them from side to side, you remove the "right" from the coding and add the "left" at the end. While it gives the same result on the page, it disrupts the coding sequence for easy bot-use if necessary.

    As such, may I ask you to pay more attention to this code? Please and thank you.

    • The reason I swap everything is to maintan (what I assume is) the established pattern of alternating the position of each successive image. I don't use any coding to do so, just go into the image file and choose the option under "Advanced Settings".

    • I think the reason this is happening is because you are editing using the visual editor, which gives less control of the actual coding of the article and is known to make unintentional changes (adding and removing spaces, for example). As you are a regular editor, I might suggest switching over to the classic/source editor, which is generally considered to be a better choice overall, and more suited for regular contributors.

  • Hi! I was wondering when in "The Waterbending Master" it showed a whole platypus bear for consumption? I watched the welcoming ceremony scene and did not seem to catch it.

    • It was brief, but that huge platter that they lowered the ground (before the chief officially introduced Sokka and Katara) was defintiely a platypus bear (it steamed!).

  • Hi there. Firstly, I want to say thank you for all the hard work you have been doing editing and expanding the articles on the wiki. It is always great to see people taking an interest in improving the wiki.

    One thing I wanted to ask you is if you could try and condense your changes into 1 or 2 larger edits, rather than a lot of small changes. It is preferred that changes to an article in a short time period be made in as few edits as possible, for example editing the whole article at once rather than a section at a time.

    Thank you once again for all the hard work and effort you have put into this wiki.

    • One reason I work like that is because I have a full-time job with a long commute, so I don't always have enough time to edit an entire article.

      Also, not all ideas come to me at once, or even while I'm in the process of editing. Sometimes it's just a sudden burst of inspiration that I need to get down before I forget.

    • I'm not saying you have to make every change you want to make to the article in one go, there is absolutely nothing wrong in spreading it out over time and certainly that is something I have done myself. My only request is to try and make sure any edits that are made in quick succession are made as one large edit.

  • Hey there, care to check this out and either accept or reject? Please and thank you :-D

  • Hi there! I noticed that you added a lot of references there where they were lacking, thank you for that :-) however, I'd like to tell you that we have a rather simple template you could use to add an episode reference - which will save you a lot of time to not having to track down and copy the reference you'd like to use. I'm talking about {{cite episode}}. You can find the instructions on how to use that template on that page - if something isn't clear, feel free to ask me - and I have compiled a list of used episode reference abbreviations here. Hope this'll help your future editing :-)

    • Thanks, but I think I missed something. I just tried using this technique in an edit and it came out all crazy on the reference list. Not my finest moment.

    • You copied a little bit too much code, including the nowiki tags which are throw off the working of the code. So basically, this is what you added, while this is what it should be. I hope the comparisons make sense. If not, just ask :-)

  • Hi there! I saw your edit on the fauna page with the message that there was more to follow, so I decided to leave this message first as I don't know whether or not you check edits made by others and their edit summaries. While I'm very glad that you took an interest in editing on this wiki -seriously, we could use some new editors, so by all means, continue :-D - I did undo your edit in this case. My reasoning for doing so is that due to the hybrid nature of many of the creatures, we simply don't know what kind of class they would be, especially when they're a contraction of two animals from a different class, like the buzzard wasp, which is part bird and part insect. It would be speculation to say that they're then an insect, just because that may be the animal they resemble the most. For some other creatures, it may be more clear-cut, but if we can't do it correctly without speculation for all the animals, I'd say that it's better to not do it for any animal, because otherwise you'll get the distinction between "animal classes we know" and "undefined".

    I hope you thus understand why I undid you edit. I just wanted to make sure that you wouldn't waste more time on that article, as it was undoubtedly a time-consuming endeavor going through that entire list. So I do apologize for the waste of time :-/

    • Question regarding the cusine page: based on a quick Google search, I think bean curd puffs are just bits of fried tofu (based on dishes/recipes that showed up). The show was never really clear on composition, but should I change the entry?

    • Feel free to correct any inconsistencies and wrongful information that you find. The only thing you have to take into account is that official sources (like the information given in the show and artbooks and interviews with official people of the show) take precedent over real world recipes and whatnot. So other than that, edit as you please :-)
