Wiki Editors

Welcome Lachlan!

Please join me in welcoming Lachlan of Cromarty back as the Administrator of the Caid Wiki. His dedication and devotion to the Wiki have been ever present since the birth of the Wiki and it is with complete confidence in his knowledge and leadership that the Wiki will continue to grow and prosper with his guidance. I want to thank all of the editors for your work on the Wiki. It has been an honor to be part of the team that continues Kolfinna's legacy ~ The Compendium Caidis. Thank you all for all that you do. --Valdis 22:06, 3 April 2014 (PDT)

Test Area

I use this section to work on wording for new articles as needed. Anything herein should be considered "unofficial", at best.

Whenever possible, populace articles should use the person's name as it is registered with the College of Arms of the Society. Unfortunately, many registered names use accented characters and a few non-Latin characters. When a name contains these characters, its article may be alphabetized by the Wiki some distance from where users will likely look for it. This is particularly true if the special character is the first or second character in the name. For example, the name "Þorfastr Varinsson" will be placed after names which start with "Z" and "Róis ni Brian" will be placed after "Ryuusaki Raiden".

Sort Key

A sort key specifies where the page will appear in the category list, and under which letter heading. (By default, the page is sorted under the first letter of its full name including its namespace.) You can add a sort key to a page by adding it inside the Category tag. For example, adding the tag "[[Category:Populace|Thorfastr Varinsson]]" to the article "Þorfastr Varinsson" would place the article in the Populace category with the "T" names, as expected by users. The altered sort key is not visible to users, however. Only the registered spelling will appear in the category listing, article heading, etc.

Hmm. Did not work - may need extension.


Help with Scribal pages

Hey Lachlan! I need a little help. I think I want to do a Scribe page for out of Kingdom scribes (we're getting a lot of help from outside Caid) and up until now, I've just been making a new scribe page for each one. I'm not quite sure how to format it. (I've forgotten what little I know about this stuff. :) I'd appreciate your help. Thanks! aliskye (and I forgot how to do the little sig thing.)

Thanks Lachlan! You fill me with confidence! When I get the rest of the coronation scrolls uploaded I'll work on the new page. (It's been really slow and awful editing the wiki lately, or is that just my computer which sorely needs to be replaced.) Look signature: --Aliskye 16:29, 9 July 2013 (PDT)

Admin Notes

Users can no longer create accounts. This process can only be completed through the Administrative Staff. Go to Help:New Users for instructions! --Valdis 12:12, 23 November 2013 (PST)

Editors - If you no longer wish to be an active editor, please contact me via email at to let me know. The only difference would be that you would no longer be listed on the Editor staff, and would no longer be expected to assume the responsibilities of an editor. You would still be able to edit pages on the Wiki. Thank you for all you have contributed to the Caid Wiki! --Valdis 12:12, 23 November 2013 (PST)

New Help with Scribe pages

Lachlan, can you delete the page for Vashey Bat Abraham? I added him when he did a scroll for us, but I've since started to move all the "foreign" scribes to a single page. We don't need Vashey's page any more. Thanks! Aliskye 16:04, 23 July 2014 (PDT)

Thank You!

Lachlan, Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into the wiki office, and your willingness to step up as administrator when you were needed. Thank you for staying on as an editor. It is very much appreciated! --Kolfinna 10:53, 7 August 2009 (PDT)
