TOS spellcheck

Thanks for some of the typo fixes in the TOS content. As you can see, some of it is sorely in need of it. --Steelviper 10:01, 3 March 2006 (CST)

  • The next thing it needs is a grammar check. --Grafix 10:57, 3 March 2006 (CST)
  • Ohhh, we shan't be going there soon. --The Merovingian 13:48, 3 March 2006 (CST)

While you are on your TOS spell check/grammar check crusade of the TOS articles, if you could note any articles that aren't Mentioned-Only that lack a picture on the Original Series Article Development page, I'd appreciate it. I think I got them all (either they have a picture, or they're on that project page as needing one), but it always helps to have somebody double check. Thanks (and thanks again for the spellcheck!) --Steelviper 07:40, 13 March 2006 (CST)

The Lloyd Bridges page does not have a picture. --Grafix 10:49, 17 March 2006 (CST)

A better place to post this might be Battlestar Wiki:Requested Images. --April Arcus 10:50, 17 March 2006 (CST)
I really haven't been counting Cast&Crew as part of OSAD either, in part because I think a Cast&Crew Article Development (CCAD) project may be something coming down the pipeline anyway. However, if you REALLY wanted a pic for it, something could be grabbed from Cain (TOS). --Steelviper 11:15, 17 March 2006 (CST)
The massive spell/grammar check crusade still rocks. That is all. --Steelviper 15:15, 4 April 2006 (CDT)

It looks like you've finished the alphabetical TOS crusade! Congrats! Now you appear to be cleaning up the content that has been added since you made your last pass. Would it be worthwhile for me to add a little section on OSAD for articles that need grammar/spellcheck? For example, I'll be finishing up Baltar's Escape soon, and as soon as I was done I'd add it there so you'd know that it was done and needed to be looked at. --Steelviper 10:16, 9 April 2006 (CDT)

Yes, I finally finished this morning!! I then went back to the episode pages but I realised that they were not all complete yet so I stopped for the time being. It would be usefull to know when pages were complete.
Now, do I start on 1980? --Grafix 10:21, 9 April 2006 (CDT)
Bleh! I suppose it ought to be done at some point. Fortunately the 1980 namespace is pretty small, and is not likely to change much anytime soon. I think all the episode summaries are done on it. Both 1980 and TOS need more added in the Questions/Analysis/Quotes department, but I think the spelling/grammar priority on those sections is significantly lower. When episode guides are completely done for TOS (all summary, questions, etc are done) I'll list them on OSAD, and you can cross them off or delete them off of there when you get to them. It'll probably be Monday before I even get around to making the list (and it'll be short to start with).--Steelviper 10:29, 9 April 2006 (CDT)
Here's the list. It's short to start out with, as a bunch of the episode guides still have empty (or nearly empty sections). As I finish them up I'll move them down to the "Completion Candidates" list, and once it's been cleared you can strike it out. Some of the sections in the "candidates" list need linking yet, and I'll try to get to that at some point (if somebody doesn't beat me to it).--Steelviper 14:10, 10 April 2006 (CDT)
I'm glad you're still on the job! I guess I need to hurry up... I'm hoping to watch through the series episode by episode to fill in the missing sections to get them ready for "Completion Candidate" status, but as you can tell it's been a slow process. I wasn't sure if you were still watching OSAD, but I'm relieved that you still are. Thanks! --Steelviper 15:08, 28 June 2006 (CDT)

Error message

I just got this error message, what does it mean?

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 37704 bytes) in /home/admin/domains/ on line 92

Joe wondered if you are still seeing this? --Steelviper 20:56, 9 March 2006 (CST)
It means the "save" is two big and it has to be split up.

Need your Expert Advice

Portal:Battlestar Galactica (RDM) - Your Input would be great as you like the new design. Just wanted ot see how you liked this Portal Sample. --Shane 18:07, 17 March 2006 (CST)

It's looking good. Could you change both instances of "where" to "were". I also noticed you had Mini-series on the Episode Guide portal, it should be Miniseries. Keep up the good work. --Grafix 18:25, 17 March 2006 (CST)

Add a topic to the discussion side. It was in the orginal Battlestar Galactica (RDM) listing along with Seasons 1 and 2. --Shane 18:32, 17 March 2006 (CST)

Grafix, the "main page" redesign needs your input: Main Page Redesign --Shane (T - C - E) 18:40, 6 April 2006 (CDT)
