Hi Lily Ford, I've created a template Navbox for all the "Singers, Songwriters, and Producers" but it didn't ask me the template type, so now it's just a normal page. Is there a trick to converting it into a Navbox?
Thanks for the tip! Also thank you for deleting all those pages for me. There are still a few edits that need to be done on pages that sources can't be edited by myself. I have left comments in the Talk pages for each. Whenever you can get around to it, I'd appreciate if you can check the suggested edits out. I'll continue to do that on future pages too.
I'm definitely digging the background and the banner image at the top. I'm not 100% sold on the color, but I can see changing it to something lighter if only to balance out the visibility of bold or hyper-linked text in the top of the info-boxes.
Of course. The colour was just based off the purple/blue often seen for DiC promo stuff. Either way, we can always play around with colours until we get something that blends well with both bold and hyper-link text.
If you're happy with the background and banner image, let me refine them, and I'll link you to the full size images when I'm done.
Also, is it easy enough to put tiling into the code for the background? I'm thinking of making just a slice, and then it can duplicate across the screen.
There's an option in the theme designer that lets you tile the background or maintain a fixed image (like the one currently in use). It's a check box that shouldn't give you too much trouble, but let me know if you run into problems.

I am not an Admin so I don't think I have access to theme designer (or I just can't find it). Either way, I've re-created the background myself (the one in the mockup was from Viz's dub trailer) and the banner, and I've uploaded them here:
Background looks great in Firefox! However, tiling isn't working on Chrome or Explorer. The banner colour doesn't work with it, so we might have to go with something else. If you want to try these colours and see what you think. #3366cc, #336699, #6666ff, #006699.
Also, if you check the link I sent last post, I've uploaded a slightly resized version of the background so we can see more stars and bubbles on either side (Dub-Wiki-New-BG_450x675.png), and an alternate positioned banner (Dub-Wiki-Banner-Image2). At the moment their faces get covered by page count, so let's see if this one works better.
All good. It might just certain pages... For FireFox the background loads then disappears on Sailor_Moon_Wiki main page for me, but all other pages work fine. Background works fine on Chrome and Explorer, but the banner colour only uses that darker teal on certain pages... so it could just take time to update for every page. It should be fine. Looks good though. Thanks so much for using the pieces I put together.
No problem. I've been spending a lot of my free time updating a lot of the pages, so I hope you don't mind me taking over so much. Also, if you get a free minute, can you please take a look at the Candidates for Deletion and the Talk's I have posted to edit some of the infobox's, templates, and categories? Thanks heaps Lily Ford!
How do we remove categories from a page? It doesn't allow me to do so on the actual page itself (even in edit mode). There are some pages with incorrect categories, such as Hotaru and Pegasus labeled as "minor characters".
You hit the edit button on the page, scroll down and on the right side of the page the "Categories" box has the selected tags.
Hovering the arrow over the categories chosen for the page should give you a pencil and a trash icon. Clicking on the trash icon should remove the category from the page, but it doesn't delete the category itself. Is this not popping up for you?
Hi, was just thinking since I took down my Moonlight Soldiers website, you can remove it from the website links menu here. The web archive doesn't have all of the contents my original pages had, so I don't think there's any point leaving it there. I will update the Sailor Moon Dub Wiki as much as I can with the information I have gathered over the years though. Happy to be a part of the team :)
The text of the website is all I'm worried about as a citation, which is what the Sailor Moon Dub Wiki is using for references. Also make sure to cite any name changes you make to any articles regarding dub names, or at the very least add a the 'citation needed' template if uncertain.
No worries. A lot of my Moonlight Soldiers pages don't load off the archive, and I had a lot of outdated information, especially since I stopped working on it in 2014. I'm honoured though that my old fan site was used as a major source of dub information *blush* but I have learnt a lot since creating that site, and I hope I can help this wiki become more accurate.
Posting conventions seem to be quite a grey area with not many pages following this, or contain infoboxes with mixed information and categories of those infoboxes in need of rearranging and renaming (that's why I hesitated loading them until we get a better flow going). The Optimum Productions dub was my first introduction to Sailor Moon, so I would love to have a whole wiki devoted to this, meaning I believe any Japanese text references should be removed, and just a single link to a general Sailor Moon wiki page of the original character is sufficient.
In terms of copy and pasting, all edits I made and images I added over the last day were all things that just came to mind and screen-caps I created from my BDs at the time of editing. So, not sure if that was directed at me or others in general... I would prefer though if this wiki concentrated on the Optimum dub only, as Viz is just basically the Japanese version in English, which there are plenty of Wikis for.
There is a lot of effort to get this Wiki looking great on my behalf. I have many ideas and suggestions for formatting, backgrounds, headers, etc. and as you seemed to be an admirer of my old website, I thought you were the best to come to to discuss this, and all above points in finer detail if possible.
Do you have access to the Sailor Moon Dub Wiki homepage? Because I realized that whoever typed in the page misspelled “the” in the first sentence. I know it may be a small mistake, but I just thought it should be fixed! Have a good day!
