  • Hi Scott,

    Just wondering if you could help with the wiki's background? With the popularity of Fury Road, new editors to the wiki deserve something a little nicer to look at! As much as I like the idea of both Mel & Tom's Maxs either side of the content area, it doesn't work for all screen sizes and a Fury Road centric background would be better.

    I've tried implementing the background used on the Russian MM wiki, but I've run into a few issues. I can't seem to use the image for all screen sizes. Could you possibly help? Here's the image in mind: Madmax background 2015

    Alternatively, perhaps you have some better ideas for a good FR background?

      Honestly don't know how I missed this message, but I am currently looking into the background split issue. Hopefully I'll have an answer soon.

      So, it seems there is an issue with the background split option which will be resolved soon. When it is, I will be able to use this^ image, or create something else, but for the moment, the current image accommodates the split much better. I'll check back with you when the issue is resolved, should be in the next week or two.

    • Thanks for getting back RE the issue. If the current background accommodates the split better, that's fine for now. Designing backgrounds isn't my forte (though, the current one's mine), so by all means see if you could make anything else work. Perhaps a community vote is in order.

  • I've featured your "vehicles of FR" blogpost on the main page. Beautifully mad creations indeed. Can't wait to see them on the big screen. I'm sure you're as hyped as everyone else around here for Thursday/Friday!

  • Hey XD1, hope you're well? I've tried playing around with some of the home page layout, I thought I had the code nailed (for the most part I'm happy with the code I've come up with - Template:Home table ), but I've run into a few difficulties when applied and was wondering whether you can lend a hand? First, the collapsible contents section at the bottom doesn't seem to work alongside the new code, any idea what might work? Second, the code for the slideshow in Mad Max Media: is there anyway in which the articles will open if clicked on? Open in new tab works, which is what I did when I previewed it.

  • Great to have you here XD1! I'd love to have some help here on the wiki. As you can probably see, the majority of the wiki was constructed and is currently maintained solely by myself, it's sure been a lot of work. Unfortunately there's not much of a community, despite my best efforts to create one, and no one's stuck around long enough to make admin.

    I'd love it if you could come up with a more engaging background? The wordmark I'm quite happy with, but again, would love to see some alternatives. As for the main page, I've only very recently managed to get it looking fairly decent (ie. collapsible sections made it read better), but it's certainly a bit rough around the edges, especially compared with lots of other wikis.

    • I don't know what this 'Fluid layout' is going to mean for the wiki, I've tried and failed to understand what it all means. It seems that perhaps the main page might need some editing to fit the new layout? Hopefully the change won't be too dramatic.

      It should be pretty simple to adjust to, the right rail width dropping from 330px to 300px is about the only thing that may require immediate attention here - just making those images a tiny bit smaller. At any rate, we'll get through it. ;)
