TALK - 04:39, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
tumblr_osh37pJ7Q21tlnss6o9_75sq.png Thanks for getting started on this MEX! Just adding onto Caf's list and what sections need to be on each page:
  • Page 1: Cover
  • Page 2: Contents. Could you add in a box somewhere for an editor's letter? The name for the letter is The Secret Report. The black/white scheme is fine.
  • Page 3: Trinity Archives. We need boxes for each piece of news. I was thinking maybe something like image on the left, then the info in a box to the right. Then for the next bit of news, the info box is on the left and the image is on the right. Then it alternates like that. Sorry if that's hard to understand, cause I'm terrible at explaining things. ^^ For color scheme, what about the traditional KH blue/silver from the KH and KHII logos?
  • Page 4: Unlocking the Keyhole (going off of Erry's name idea). The sections we have are: Updates for the deletion, move and protection logs, info on the current battles going on in user arenas, introductions of new users and another section for updates from our Jiminy's Journal. For colors, how about going off the yellow in our logo?
  • Page 5: Kingdom Hearts' Renewal. Sections are left up to you guys, of course. Same goes for colors, but what about the pink/white/black currently used in your theme?
  • Page 6: Special Editor Page. The subject of this page changes, so the design is left to the current author. All you really need to do now is add the tab for it. :)
  • Page 7: Dive to the Heart (aka the Tutorials page). We need one part for the wiki based tutorial and another for the game tutorial. I'm not sure about colors.
  • Page 8: Featured Article. Same as the Special Editor page, you don't need to do anything for this either.
  • Page 9: Round Room (Staff roundtable). For this one we'd need speech bubbles for each individual participant in the conversation, cause I think just copy/pasting the talk bubbles could space out the page a bit much. So maybe plain bubbles with staff avatars? Again, I'm not sure for colors.
  • Page 10: Room of Rewards. We need boxes to talk about the Featured Articles and Media, images of each included. For colors, how about basing it off the colors of Treasure Chests?
  • Page 11: User Page (this doesn't have a name yet). So far we need sections for a user interview, a top 5 list and a review.
  • Page 12: The Game Grid. Currently includes a puzzle (possibly naming this section the Chasm of Challenges), a KH character skit and a mini arena. For colors, how about the greyish blue from the in game Game Grid?
  • Page 13: The Interactive Page (also doesn't have a name). Needs a section for the chief editor hosted mailbag. Also needs another section for the to do lists, which include 5 tasks to complete from .net, 5 more for the Keyhole and 5 challenges for the KH games, so it needs to be separated into 3 sections somehow.

And that's all there is! I think each page should have its own color scheme, so they all differentiate. There also needs to be a place to put the written by box (take a look at the Fairy Tail wiki magazine to see what I mean). Also, would you mind if I were to stop by every now and again and help you out with putting this together? tumblr_osh37pJ7Q21tlnss6o10_75sq.png

Of course you can help, Final Rest. I would be grateful. Today I have some homework to do, so I will not be able to help very much. But if you want, you can change the template, anything. - MateusinhoEX 14:21, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Contents[edit]

I was taking a look at the contents page and I think it might be too cramped to put both the Secret Report and the Contents on the same page. The contents should be the main focus, so it should go up the top, but in that case I don't want the Secret Report to just be shoved to the bottom of the page. So, I was wondering if you think we should tab the contents page so it'd look something like this. Do you think that makes the page tidier or do you think it should be left as it looks now? tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o8_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o5_75sq.png FINALREST tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o3_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o6_75sq.png 09:57, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

tumblr_osh3fxBdyT1tlnss6o4_75sq.png Hello again. :) So, I spaced out the contents and I think it's a lot less cramped now, but it also leaves a big gap to the right of the box. I was thinking of ways to fill it, and I was thinking maybe we could put a sort of collage thing there to fill in the gap. Something like this, perhaps? However, I'm kind of iffy on the way that looks, so I was wondering what you guys thought. Obviously pay no attention to the images themselves cause I just added the first screenshots I could find. ^_^ I also noticed that page 11 and 12 were left out of the tabs and contents and I was wondering if there was a reason for that, or if it was just a mistake... tumblr_osh3fxBdyT1tlnss6o3_75sq.png
Looks good, but how would we pick which images to put? TheFifteenthMember 14:30, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
Hey guys!! I am a little busy these days. Well, lets explain somethings:
  1. About the Secret Report. Do you wish to leave it as it is, or change it's look, with it's new colors to make it look like the other pages, or change all other pages to look like it? Or just leave it different, like a special page?
  2. About the missing pages. I just didn't had time to add them yet, no special reasons XD.
  3. And last, about gaps, not just in contents, but in any pages it may happen. I can't help with this, because I use a resolution in which... well... there aren't any gaps!! So, you solve it as you wish. I can only say that the images looks veeeery good. I loved them. We could use images related to the respective Trinity Archives and Dive to the Heart of the issue. For example, images of KHHD ReMIX, χ[chi], and some of the game in the walkthrough of that issue.

MateusinhoEX - 16:02, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

For the secret report, I just tried to make it look as similar to the real Secret Report in the game as I could. I would've been able to do more with html, but, well, wikia *shakes fist angrily*. I think it's fine to have the pages a little different, especially since pages like the Featured Editor page will be changed according to the author for that issue, so the variety will be a good change. As for the contents, since you guys like it, I'll add in a code later for the image. For the pictures, you hit the nail on the head, MEX. I too was thinking we just customize them according to the content of that issue, so I guess we'll just do that. :) tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o8_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o5_75sq.png FINALREST tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o3_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o6_75sq.png 13:41, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Fine. Then these points are solved. I will just add the missing pages. I also don't know how to do with the Roundtable page. Could you help me? MateusinhoEX - 16:17, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for taking a while to get back to this. ^^ I'll take a look at the roundtable and see what I can do! tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o8_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o5_75sq.png FINALREST tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o3_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o6_75sq.png 07:32, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX Released in Japan!!

Two weeks ago, in March 14th, a HD compilation of the first three games of the series was released. Yeah, guys, the long wait for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX has ended, at least for who leave in Japan. We still will have to wait a little more to have this game in our hands, because the NA release is estimated to only Fall 2013. Although, our friend here Erry has imported a Japanese copy of the game and is doing a Livestream. You can check the link to it in our main page. Please take a look!!
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX Logo KHHD.png

This compilation brings a lot of new features, aside of just remastering the games in HD. It is composed by Kingdom Hearts: Final MIX, which is being released outside Japan for the first time, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, with some new cards, and a Theater Mode of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, all made in HD. It's also the first time a Kingdom hearts game is released for a new generation console, in this case, the Playstation 3. The game also has support to the PS3 Trophy feature, including two Platinum Trophies, one for KHFM and one for Re:CoM. There also much more features that you guys will enjoy very much, I'm sure of it!!


ParaDOX, ReMIX, TraiLER

As previously mentioned, the Kingdom Hearts series made a large appearance at the D23 Expo in Japan this week, and it seems that the announcements that the fans were disappointed weren't included at the Tokyo Game Show were in fact being saved for this event!

The first piece of news came with the confirmation that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX will be released in 2014! The game will be another PS3 exclusive release and will include a compilation of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, while Kingdom Hearts Re:coded will be represented by cinematic videos, much like Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days was in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX. A special trailer for the game was shown at the convention, which can be viewed below.

To celebrate the announcement the official website for the game was opened, and you can check it out here. If you can't wait to get your hands on the game, you better make sure to preorder your copy!

As if that news isn't exciting enough, the Kingdom Hearts teams wasn't finished there! Later on at the Expo a brand new trailer for Kingdom Hearts III was revealed! The one and a half minute long video shows our familiar friend Sora fighting against some Heartless while also receiving support from old pals Donald and Goofy. Some new areas are also revealed as Sora battles on a "Pirate Ship", and then against the Rock Titan while riding the train on the "Big Magic Mountain". But why should you listen to my account of the trailer?

The biggest news for the month of April is the revival of the Underdrome! Custodian Chainoffire is hard at work orchestrating the heated battles, and this year we're hoping to go bigger and better! For more information on the Underdrome, be sure to take a look at The Coliseum, which can be found on page 6!

Deletion Log

  • The delete button has been hard at work, having eliminated a healthy number of recently uploaded .jpg images. Please remember that no matter their content, .jpg images are not allowed to be uploaded on the Keyhole, and they will be deleted! As outlined on our uploads page, "All files should have the *.PNG extension, unless they are animated (these should be given *.APNG or *.GIF extensions) or music files (these should be given .ogg)."
  • A discussion from our March Tea Party also led to the deletion of multiple character images. Because we no longer have origin sections for most characters, we no longer have a use for images that illustrate what any characters looked like in non-KH related media. Please keep this in mind when uploading character images in the future.
  • The Welcomeip template is back! In mid 2013 wikia announced it would be disallowing anons to edit on wikis with children related content. Because Kingdom Hearts is a PG series, this meant that anons were no longer able to contribute to the Keyhole. The Welcomeip template was deleted, seeing as we didn't have a need to welcome anonymous users anymore. But, after recently discovering the amount of red links the template left behind, Welcomeip was resurrected! We would like our users to note that this restoration was purely in the name of red link prevention, and the Welcomeip template is still a retired template which should not be used.

Move Log

  • Hundreds of images are still being renamed thanks to the effort of those involved in the image cleanup project. To make these helpful users' jobs a little easier, please make sure that you are familiar with the Keyhole's Naming Policy before you upload images in the future. Failure to adhere to our naming policy will result in the deletion of your images.
  • A discussion was brought up at one of our Tea Parties when the Merman Form page was renamed Dolphin Form. This page move has lead to the suggestion of a List of Forms page, but if you'd like to share your opinions on whether Sora is a merman or a dolphin, then feel free to drop in on the link provided earlier in this entry. What we would like users to remember is that you should always open a discussion before renaming an article. Moving pages without staff approval will result in an official warning.

Other Logs

  • Over on the protection log, we had to momentarily protect our main page to keep our little April Fools days joke safe. The first of April was filled with mixed up main pages, fake Kingdom Hearts III worlds and even a few staff-on-staff pranking! To take a look at all the madness, head on over to our April Fool's Day Joke 2014 page.
Nudge2copy_zps51513fd5.png
We've had a steady influx of users the last couple of months, so make sure you head over to the user creation log to check everyone out and give them a warm Keyhole welcome! All our new users are welcome to our wiki family, and here just a few of our newbies that we'd like to shine the spotlight on.
  • Clementines-And-Tangerines, who joined on the 17th of March, is a friendly user who's just starting to wrap their head around the always difficult wiki coding. Drop on by and offer a helping hand!
  • SixRockFire joined April 18th and is a big fan of Kingdom Hearts II! Are there any fellow Xigbar fans out there?
  • MasterAfrit, who joined on the 25th of April, already has an impressive list of KH stats posted on his userpage. Check them out and give him a round of applause!
  • Last but not least is Mikuhan, who joined on the 26th of April. His userpage is home to an impressively designed OC article, and its definitely worth a look!

So I offer a big hello to those 4 users, as well as all the others I didn't have the time to mention! We hope you enjoy your stay in the Keyhole/KHWiki universe!

DuplicateStatecopy_zps3c01d752.png
Each month the Keyhole hosts a tea party for all users to get together and discuss wiki related issues. Below are important policies we have decided upon in our latest tea party forums.
March 2014
  • The possible name sections for Organization XIII members will be deleted.
  • Boxart will be added to character galleries under the Artwork sections.

Traverse Town KH.png
Perhaps the most important piece of news is that our chief editor KrytenKoro is leaving the Wiki. We will miss him deeply, for the KHWiki wouldn't be the database it is if it weren't for him. In happier news, the KHWiki has formed affiliations with Kingdom Hearts Answers, sevengamer, and Hardyt3kyoyo's YouTube channel!

MegaProject: Arise, which intends to revive interest in the KHWiki and the Kingdom Hearts franchise, has been launched! There are several community projects that are included in this, such as:

  • The Traverse Town Revival: Traverse Town, our community portal, isn't as up-to-scratch as we'd like so we've decided to clean it up and update it with the most current and relevant information! Add your input at this forum post.
  • Home Page: The current main page is dated, text-heavy and in desperate need of a new coat of paint. We envision a new main page that is visually pleasing and engaging to visitors, so help out here!
  • Various other revamps have taken place too, such as the return of the Mirage Arena and Featured Users.

Additionally, our manga project is up and running but there are still summary sections to be filled out and images to be uploaded! Make sure to take a look at the Flick Rush page (page 13) for more wiki tasks you can help out with!

MergeLinkedcopy_zps79aab5c5.png
With the increased activity from MegaProject: Arise, we were happy to see a gradual increase in users. We welcome all of them into our Wiki and hope to see them stick around! Here's a few newcomers that we'd like to mention:
  • SuperLuigiBros13 joined us in late April and has thus far created a stylish userpage that includes an infobox with much-appreciated roleplay elements and a mission he created for 358/2 Days.
  • Braviaggron came to us at the end of May. In his time so far, he has made a nice userpage, a sweet signature and has made various edits around the Wiki.
  • Joey the Nobody created his account in mid-May and has written a userpage that tells us a bit about himself.

We send warm greetings to all of you, including those who we did not have the space to mention!

FlipHorizontalcopy_zps9b951747.png
Care to join us in our next gathering?
Roundtables are meetings held on the #KHWiki-noticeboard IRC channel every 1st Friday of the month. Below are important policies we have decided upon at our latest roundtable meetings.
April 2014 (Part One)
  • .gifs will be tabbed together in the lead for ability articles with many gifs. Their maximum size will be 300px and file size should be restricted to make sure gifs run when resized.
  • Format for manga articles has been decided:
    • On chapter articles, images of the front and back cover will be added to the infobox, similar to what's done for enemy articles.
    • The "List of KH chapters" page will be re-done in the style of wikipedia.
    • The actual summary information will be added to the volume pages, under the "Overview" sections. Again, this is taken from wikipedia as an example.
    • Naming will mainly use the YenPress titles, but with redirects for the Tokyopop titles. On the volume pages, however, both publication names will be noted in the template.
    • KeybladeSpyMaster will handle all templates.
April 2014 (Part Two)
  • Furious Volley will be its own page for the sleight, and Furious Shout will be its own page for the differently named abilities.
  • All galleries pertaining to KH Wiki's images on DisneyWiki will have a template at the top to show that KH Wiki content has been used.
May 2014
  • Methods of how to incorporate KHInsider into our news feed will be looked into.
  • Affiliations with Disney Wiki will be reconsidered once they finish undergoing their reforms.
  • New Featured User medals and banners will be made.
June 2014
  • A retired staff page will be made.
  • Clean up of the Month will return as part of the Traverse Town Project.
  • Affiliating with Hardyt3kyoyo has been approved. Affiliates with KHMansion.net and Kingdom Hearts Media has been declined. TheFifteenthMember will ask the Kingdom Hearts Answers Wiki and Square Enix Answers whether they are still interested in affiliation. We will further discuss affiliation with Ratchetpedia with its founder.
  • The podcast and lets play are still scheduled for release.
  • The FM2+ icon will be changed to the proper FM2 icon.

TheFifteenthMember's Review of Another Guardian of Light

Another Guardian of Light is the secret ending for Dream Drop Distance so this review is bound to contain spoilers. The nearly-four minute video effectively sets up for Kingdom Hearts III so let's take a look.
KH3D icon.png

The video starts with a few cryptic scenes with Xehanort in his youth and then Aqua in the Dark Margin, later goes onto a conversation between Donald and Goofy, and then ends with a meeting between Mickey and Yen Sid. For me, the secret ending's main weakness is the fact that it consists entirely of dialogue. Although this helps build the tension for the revelation at the end, it makes Another Guardian of Light pale in comparison to the pizazz of previous secret endings, such as The Gathering.

However, the ending slightly redeems itself by leading on a strong plot. While the Xehanort scene seems to be there purely to start fan discussions among the KH theorists, the conversation between Donald and Goofy neatly ties a few loose ends with the mention of Lea's return to Radiant Garden. The "meat" of the ending is the counsel with Yen Sid and it delivers a satisfying introduction to the intriguing concepts of the "Seven Guardians of Light" and "Thirteen Darknesses". The climax of the scene is the revelation that Kairi could wield the Keyblade, a topic that many had theorised beforehand.

KH3D icon.png

Final Opinion: Another Guardian of Light doesn't live up to previous secret endings but it introduces intriguing story concepts and, at the very least, sets up for Kingdom Hearts III.

TheFifteenthMember's Top Five Gameplay Mechanics

The Kingdom Hearts series has had time to experiment with many systems of gameplay throughout its seven, main instalments. This list shows my personal favourites.
  1. Icon Movement KHBBS.png Flowmotion: Introduced in the most recent Dream Drop Distance, Flowmotion indulges players with the freedom of locomotion and thrill of motion attacks. After soaring the landscape with Flowmotion, I began to look at walking pedestrians with pity.
  2. Heartless Emblem.png Dark Mode: Most disliked Chain of Memories' slow-paced card system, which made Dark Mode all the more refreshing. Not only did Dark Mode have powerful attacks, the increased mobility allowed players to break the mundane routine that battles could become. What's more, Dark Mode was a balanced system that didn't ruin the game's difficulty, like Drive Forms did.
  3. Drive Orb KHII.png Drive Forms: In my opinion, Kingdom Hearts II's combat isn't the most challenging. But with Drive Forms that doesn't matter, since the stylish costumes and Keyblade flair are enough to forgive any OPed aspects
  4. Icon Attack KHBBS.png Deck Command: With three games implementing them, Deck Commands have been well-established in the series. Dream Drop Distance and Re:coded had their twists, but the initial Birth by Sleep's system remains the best, adding the deepest strategy and precision that prevented the game from becoming a button masher.
  5. Slot Releaser KHD.png Panel System: Although it wasn't implemented perfectly, 358/2 Days' panels were certainly innovative to say the least. They were an interesting spin on existing RPG elements and formed a subtle mini-game that required you to slot the panels together like a jig-saw puzzle.

Great question, the reason that I'm so awesome is a secret that has been passed down the fire family for generations. So unfortunately I can't answer your question. But if you want to be a little awesome, get to know RoxasXIIILK and do the exact opposite of what he does.

Love from Chainoffire, Chainoffire and everyone at the KHWiki and Keyhole!

The following users completed the tasks in our last issue. Everyone give a round of applause to:

This guy, who did the thing!

That guy, who did the other thing!

All the other guys who did the less impressive but still deserving of reward things!

Seems like it's coming along nicely. One thing though - is there any chance of changing the color scheme of the Contents page? Personally, it looks a bit dull and awkward. I think different fonts will look very good and perhaps a dark grey or silver will work better. Just a suggestion. TheFifteenthMember 19:41, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

This is a cool way to see how it all comes together. ^^ I'm all for changing the Contents colors, but I don't have any ideas, so go ahead and do what you think'll look nice. :) Oh, and I also filled in some of the other spaces, to see how they look. tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o8_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o5_75sq.png FINALREST tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o3_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o6_75sq.png 09:50, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Would you mind if I moved the author bit to under the title? I think it would look nicer that way... Also, do we have anyone to work on the page title images? Cause if we don't I could have a crack at them. :) tumblr_osh3jih5LW1tlnss6o2_75sq.png This concludes my wonderful story! tumblr_osh3jih5LW1tlnss6o3_75sq.png 03:38, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Erry said he would like to make images, but I don't think he would be upset if you give it a try. About the titles, I will change them for you, don't worry. If you want, you can make any changes to the magazine, okay? MateusinhoEX 16:48, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Reboot![edit]

Heya MEX, it's been a while! Since this is getting a fresh start, I'd once again like to offer my help. Is there anything you need help with regarding the template? tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o8_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o5_75sq.png FINALREST tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o3_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o6_75sq.png 14:54, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Hey, FR, just in time!! Im really needing help with this, since I don't have much freetime now. Basically, I need you to help me style the remaining pages, like, color of them and things like. If you want to put some fancier styles, such as shadows in the boxes and things like that we can think about it. Also, if you can help me check the variables of each article (I mean, the blank spaces, such as {{{autorname}}} and {{{topfive}}}, for example</nowiki. And I think it's just that for now. I will make some edits now and get things going. Thanks for the help! - ~~~~

Hey MEX, I also signed up to help with the coding. Is there anything you need me to do? Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.pngKeybladeSpyMaster Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png04:27, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Lucky there's plenty help :) Basically, I need you to do the same things as FR. I managed to make a good draft now, so yeah, there's just more adjusts to do. Thanks!! - MateusinhoEX 13:48, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

After a lot of procrastination, I've finally made the time to write my suggestions (most of which are just nitpicking)!:
  • Contents: Before the {{{specialeditordesc}}} parameter, we should have a fixed sentence that explains that the Keyblade Master page changes completely from issue to issue. Also, the "In the newest podcast" bit could probably be scrapped seeing as it'd go on the Round Room page and like the Keyblade Master, we could have a fixed sentence before the "staffroundtabledesc" that explains what the podcast is.
  • The Door to Light: I can't speak for the Keyhole here, but I think the log updates and new users parts should be scrapped because they'd be too long, detailing every page that was deleted in the last three-months. The summary style of the Trinity Archives could be replicated here. The command board can stay so that we can talk about any projects we have.
  • The Coliseum: Aside from links to the MA and Underdrome somewhere, the page should be modelled to suit the new "debate" idea we got. Essentially, they can look exactly like a standard MA arena with two columns for each contestant and the opinion parts going beneath the pictures (where the votes usually are).
  • Dive to the Heart: Needs the "Game Tutorial" section that used to be there.
  • Round Room: This only needs a designated place for the .ogg file to go and the "In our newest podcast" section that's currently in the contents page.
  • Mark of Mastery Exam: The top 5 list and review could go side by side in two columns but that's only if we can manage to make them equal length (but we can balance them out with pictures anyway) and then the user interview below. The speech mark idea from the round room can be reworked there somehow maybe? (P.S. The currently title for that page is "Keyblade Master" so that needs updating).
  • Namine's Sketchbook: A little piece of text needs to be added to the top to explain how to make image requests.
  • Game Grid: This can be sorted into two columns. The first column will have the "Guess that Beast" instructions and image while the second column will have the two text-based riddles ("Who am I?" and the other riddle). Also, again, a piece of text needs to be added to the top to explain how the mini-competition works.
  • Flick Rush: The tasks can be split into three columns, the left has the KHWiki tasks, the right has the Keyhole ones and the game task is in the middle. Since wikis will have three tasks but the game will only have one, the center column's text needs to be enlarged and embellished to draw more attention and look balanced. We'll also need an explanation piece of text for how to email the Wiki to submit a completed task. The poll and mailbag can go side by side below.

Is it okay if I add my flick rush page to the template above? Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 02:21, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Go ahead :P TheFifteenthMember 17:49, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

When I was writing the example for the KHWiki's news section, there were a number of problems I encountered that needs fixing:
  • The colour scheme is too dark, making links illegible and giving an overall garish feel. Could we add more brighter colours such as lighter shades of grey, silver, purple or pink?
  • The text for the command board is aligned to the center, which doesn't look all that great. I think it should be made to be aligned to the left as usual.
  • A "Roundtable" section should be added for a similar purpose to the Keyhole's "Tea Party" one.

It would be great if anyone can help fixing these!

Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png I will get on that tonight, if I can. If not, it will have to wait until the end of the week, as I've got a huge AP Calculus test on Wednesday. Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png


Flick Rush[edit]

Okay, so since we're not gonna have a mailbag until after the first issue, what do we want to have for the first mailbag? Also, I have some issues with the template, and maybe someone here can help me with them:

  • I want to put images on the sides of the titles (Keyhole Tasks, KHWiki Tasks, Mailbag, and Game Task) but I can't because of the coding used here.
  • How do I put words after To prove success in the task... ? are we just going to finish the sentence on the master template? Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 02:15, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
I can't answer all of it, but as far as the "To prove success in the task..." part, I had intended to have it finished on the master template. There's a comment on the template coding right there that requests the information, which I put, because I don't know where the items (questions, proof, etc.) are supposed to be sent. As for the images, I don't know if you want images on each side, since the titles are supposed to eventually be images themselves. If you still want them, I'll see if I can get it coded in, maybe as optional parameters or something. I'll see how to get it to work. As I mentioned to FM above, it'll have to wait until the end of the week at this point, because of my AP test. Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.pngKeybladeSpyMaster Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png 23:18, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
I didn't know that the titles would turn into images, so we can just leave them then. I think that it would depend on the challenge. For example, assuming that the challenge is the one in the test template (Complete Holo-Mission 93: Believe Wearing the Extreme Ring and without the Auto-Life Panel). I would probably want screenshots of the ending screen, a screenshot of their panels, and a screenshot right as you start. Also, where would the screenshots go? Would they be sent to the KHWiki email, or could they be sent to my email, since I wrote the article? (either one is fine with me). Thirdly, should we have a section where we put the names of the users who completed the project? Finally, what would happen to those users that did complete the project? Would they just get special mention in the article or would we select one to get a prize? Good luck on your AP Calc test by the way! Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 04:48, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
I think the screenshots should be sent to the KHWiki email and then the information would be conveyed to the writer. That way, potential writers won't be put off by having their email displayed publicly. And, as I said earlier, we could give those who finish tasks a special mention on the next issue, an accolade (which I'll work on), and first priority in making image requests and mailbag questions. TheFifteenthMember 18:24, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
I'm back! And, apparently, still alive... Anyways, could I have the KHWiki email to put in the template (or could someone else put it in)? As far as the image titles go, I have a potential idea of using the Menu font for it (see Pause Menu, Flick Rush logo, Commands Menu, the sidebar headers on this wiki, you get the idea, no?). Does anyone know where to get it? If not, I'll try to use Photoshop to cut the letters out, but I'd rather not. Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.pngKeybladeSpyMaster Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png23:41, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Nice idea with the titles. I'm not sure if this helps or not but I might as well point it out. The email is something I'm going to add to the roundtable agenda so just leave a placeholder name for now. TheFifteenthMember 15:23, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

I was going to add the "GuesstheBeast" image until I encountered this. The size can be changed easily enough, but the problem is the invisibility the black has against the background. Is it possible to add a glow around the silhouette as a border? TheFifteenthMember 18:09, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the image for the titles. I hope it will help. What I ended up doing is I'm making a font file online for free with the help of Photoshop, so that's how that's going to go. As far as the Guess the Beast image goes, is the new one okay? I added a glow somewhat as I did for the TRON disk from my talk bubbles, though granted, it seems a little more intense on the Large Body than on the Keyblade logo. Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.pngKeybladeSpyMaster Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png 03:15, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Erry made a banner for the Mirage Arena and Underdrome, which we can use to promote them and get people involved in them. The idea is we'll have the banner at the bottom of the "Coliseum" page, have text above that says "For more, visit..." and set up links. That means we can get rid of the Mirage Arena and Underdrome sections so we can focus on the Station of Awakening part. Speaking of which, the SoA will need to be divided into two with each side having a title, image and space for text so it'll be like the current Mirage Arena format. TheFifteenthMember 17:09, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

I like the banner. Maybe we could add the words "Mirage Arena" and "The Underdrome" to the banner? (In the appropriate texts) Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 20:57, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

There's a few problems I'm having with the Mark of Mastery page:
  • Firstly, the top five list is automatically centered in the middle and it'd be better aligned to the left.
  • Secondly, since there's a good chance we'll have different authors for different sections of the same page, we need to split up the author acknowledgement. That'd mean we need two "written by..."s at the end of the top five list and the review (the interview will have the interviewer/interviewee names in the talk bubbles or script anyway).

I'm not sure how to fix either of those issues. Can anyone help?
