RevPnt Map

Thanks for updating the map! It's been on my backburner for a long time (since Vasi let me know he was leaving), but I've had too much else I've been trying to add. Let me know if I can be of any assistance with anything though. --Gilant talk|DEM 16:02, 28 April 2006 (BST)

RevPnt page split

I agree splitting this off to make a new page might make things a bit more manageable. It would also open up room for a little more general information on the main page. My only worry is that it would make it easy to miss, so we would want to put something prominent pointing to the new page near the top as well. And be sure to leave the same section heading for the list with the pointer to the new page below it, in case anyone has a link directly to that section.

As for the list table itself, it seems to beg for some way to make it more organized. But I haven't figured out a way to break it up that makes a lot of sense. Dividing the city into quadrants (NW, NE, SW, SE) is one possibility, but I could very well be very biased in that view as that's how we break up the city for command positions inside the DEM. Another possibility could be breaking it into 4 or 6 sections, such as A-F, G-L etc or some such (should really look at the distribution of suburb names to make roughly equal sections). The main thing is to be sure it's enough sections to get a TOC that provides a quick jump to the right section.

If you do do something with the table, please be sure to keep me in the loop, as any change or move will break my nightly parsing of the table to update the sites in the Revivification Requests tool.

Thanks! --Gilant talk|DEM 01:42, 1 May 2006 (BST)

RevPnt anchors

I made an experiment today, and with a bit of care on placement, it turns out you can put a ====heading==== inside a cell in the table. This adds an anchor and an entry in the TOC, so people could jump to that RP from the list, and link directly to it from elsewhere in the wiki. You can see it by reviewing the edit history.

The question then is, how do we want to include it? The location name would be OK for most entries, but what about all those 'a Cemetery' and such? Coordinates wouldn't mean much by themselves. Should we combine the suburb and location name cells? ====[[Suburb]], [[Location Name]]==== Whatever we do will have an impact on the parsers so we'll want to make sure we plan ahead. But I think this could be a major improvement, providing direct links from the TOC. Too bad we couldn't have it generate a second TOC just for the list, at the top of that section. --Gilant talk|DEM 00:38, 11 May 2006 (BST)

Well, the occurance of two 'Gulunside, a cemetery' on the TOC might be something we just need to live with. Whichever they pick the other would be adjecent anyway. ... Unless we broke the list into three sections. Regular sites, sacred ground and sites on resource buildings (or buildings in general)? Regardless, I agree about the tools and all. Why don't we start the new page, but not link or announce it. We can experiment with different layouts and formatting and test modified copies of the tools until we are happy. --Gilant talk|DEM 14:07, 11 May 2006 (BST)

List of Revivification Points opened.

Unknown? Wrong...

You have marked both revive points administered by FedCom:UD as "Unknown". As leader of that group, I can assure you that both points (Pennville 85,86 and Whittenside 87,90) are fully active and growing more so every week. I have corrected the error... --Terminator 21:03, 27 June 2006 (BST)

Please read the List notes:
RP's that have not been timestamped, either by someone maintaining it or in a comment from someone confirming it is still  
functional, for a period of time over two weeks, will be marked as status Unknown. Maintainers can simply replace their old  
signature with a new one or keep a simple timestamp (~~~~~) in the comments that they replace once every
week or two.
Every two weeks ALL points which have not had a timestamp updated are marked as Unknown. If you are maintaining a revive point, you need to timestamp the list every two weeks. -- Mettaur 02:23, 28 June 2006 (BST)

Misuse of div tag in "autoupdate"

You keep putting the div tag in with your map updates. [1] I think you are looking for a break.

Instead of <div style="clear:left"/> try <br style="clear:left"/> --Max Grivas JG,T,Max4Mod,F! 15:11, 4 September 2006 (BST)
