Please look at Talk:Main Page--Kolfinna 12:17, 18 June 2008 (PDT)

If you have the time, do you think you could create two images for me. I'm basically looking for holder images for populace member's photo and device. Neither bigger than 300px width. In my head, I'm envisioning one of those can't tell if it's a guy/gal sillouhette in very bland colors, with text on it that says "looking for photo" or something. Similar for the device photo. Let me know if you have the time/desire to do this. (And if you accept this top secret mission, your artistic sensibilities should trump my vauge description of what I want). Cheers, --Kolfinna 14:57, 20 June 2008 (PDT)

Update to Fix Page

Help:Fix is where I am storing all the things to do and what needs to be focused on. We all have our own pet projects, but if you could also keep an eye on this page, that would be helpful. I also have discussion items that I need your feedback on Help:Fix#Discussion_Items. Thanks! --Kolfinna 09:29, 23 June 2008 (PDT)

Discussion: Colored Caidan Arms

I really like how you colored the Kingdom arms that Lachlan drew - what did you use to color it with? I have drawings of all the territorial arms with mantling, etc., and would like to color them before posting. I am on a Mac, and have Photoshop and Illustrator, and probably a few other programs sitting around. --EowynA 10:16, 24 June 2008 (PDT)

  • I used Illustrator and selected each element, and applied the color in the same gradient as the original. I started with the heraldic colors, and then colored the mantling so it wouldn't overshadow the arms themselves. It's really very simple. Just make backup copies as you go, so you can return to previous iterations if you do something wacky. Just play around and see what you come up with. --Iulianna 13:29, 24 June 2008 (PDT)
    • By any chance could you email me your version? --Lachlan 23:35, 25 June 2008 (PDT)
      • I certainly will do. I'm at work and the image is at home, so I'm setting myself a reminder. --Iulianna 08:09, 26 June 2008 (PDT)
  • have you ever encountered this (and if so, how did you solve it?) I saved the file from Photoshop in PNG format. The picture is black on white. When I read that file in Illustrator, the file is white on black. And not matter what I do (such as set fill to yellow and stroke color to black), I still have white lines on, now, a yellow field. I cannot seem to get Illustrator to make the lines black. --EowynA 22:27, 25 June 2008 (PDT)
    • No, I'm sorry, I'm not at all accomplished in Illustrator. I fake it really well.  :) The best suggestion I can give you is to save it as another file format than PNG, because I know PNG has a transparency layer and that may be what's screwing it up. I think you can save as an EPS or an Illustrator file from Photoshop. Let me know if that helps. --Iulianna 08:09, 26 June 2008 (PDT)

Change to how User Groups Work

Great news! The Kingdom Webwright has given us a 3 month window to test to see how it would work if all users had edit abilities. So all users have been added to the "Commenters" group which allows you to edit live pages and upload photos. Jump right in and start adding new pages and editing old ones! If you need help on how to edit the wiki, visit Help:Contents. If I don't know who you are (i.e. I need to match your SCA name to your wiki account) you will not be added to the commenters group. This is rare, only a few of you I haven't been able to place. Email me at if you need further help. --Kolfinna 13:38, 20 August 2008 (PDT)

Update to Populace pages

  • Moved all the fix it notes to here Help:Fix#Populace_Pages.
  • The most important addition is the Help:Populace_Names which is a direct feed from the OP, so should have the proper spelling for the majority of Caidans. Thanks! --Kolfinna 11:10, 25 June 2008 (PDT)
