  • Hi,

    A few things to consider when adding new pattern pages:

    1. Make sure to add the picture at the top of the page (not the bottom)

    2. The description should be the one from the back of the envelope.  It goes underneath the picture as text, not in the picture caption.

    3.. The large white background does not work well on the wiki.  I have been trimming your pictures and re-uploading them, but if you could upload without the white background, that would be great.

    Let me know if you have questions.

    Best regards,

    tarna

    • Hello again,

      Generally, you click your cursor at the spot in the edit field where you want to insert the information  or picture (much like a text editor).

      Are you editing in VisualEditor?  You may want to switch to Classic in your preferences (clock on your user avatar/name at the top and to go to your preferrences).

      Here is the link to wikia editing help.  I reallly recommend taking a look at that:

  • Hi,

    I see you found the location to enter categories.

    The issue now is that you are not using the existing categories, but rather entering descriptive terms of your own.  

    Categories and not search tags, they are not random - they are existing, pre-existing categories that link to pages that list all the patterns that fit that category.

    I am removing the terms you are entering, and replacing them with the correct categories on each of your new entries.  Until you are more familiar with this site, you may want to hold off on entering any.

    Best regards,

    tarna

  • Hi,

    Please remember - Vintage is defined as 25 years old or older on this wiki.

    Currently, that means patterns no later than 1991.

    • Sorry-  one escaped me. Gotta question. When you say  fixing formatting what do you mean?

    • Are referring to my edit summary?

      When I edit your entries, I move the picture to the top of the page from the bottom, make it the right size,  take the description out of the picture caption amd move it underneath the picture, add any bits that might be missing and format the text to match the overall wiki look and feel., then fix the spacing underneath the headers, and remove the example bullets.

      Best regards,

      tarna
