Welcome to Battlestar Wiki!

Welcome to the Wiki, Jxh487. Feel free to tell us about yourself on your user page. Before you get started on other edits, please read the Battlestar Wiki:Standards and Conventions, which details the policies we use in editing pages (this differs from many other wikis in consistent use of phrasing, abbreviations, format, and the like).

Also, if you have any questions or suggestions you wish to offer, please feel free to do so either on your user talk page, the Wikipedian Quorum or Administrators' noticeboard. Remember to sign your posts on any talk pages using four tildes (~~~~)! We look forward to your contributions to the community! --Shane (T - C - E) 20:52, 20 August 2006 (CDT)

Episode wiki changes

Those pages had a better visual impact when the episode info box and screen cap were aligned to the right of the page, opposite the contenets box. It now looks awkward and uncoventional and a little amateurish. The original format was superior. If anybody agrees could it be changed back? I wouldn't know how to so I'll leave that to someone else! :-)

I noticed the same thing. Either change your skin (in your preferences) to BsgBook, or just wait until Shane updates the Myskin skin to handle the CSS correctly. There will be several templates that will need to be updated. Thanks for the heads up, though! --Steelviper 10:23, 21 August 2006 (CDT)

Other tidbits!

It was more intuitive when the search bar was below the Navigation panel, as this means you don't have to scroll down to quick search. The first characters of the headers on the panels for Projects and Community, respectively, are not capitalised. Headers should always be capitalised. Also the links bar on the left seems narrower than before, it looks squahed and clunky, the BSG logos before each header could do with a black blackgrnd, and my final nitpick is that these logos push the headers out of their centering, so perhaps a left-handed alignment would tidy it up! -) I'm sorry that I'm moaning rather than actively rectifying these faults, it's just that I havent a clue as to how to change things! Thanks, James.

Signing your comments

Small tip. When signing don't write your name by hand, but use four tildes (~). That will automatically add your name and a timestamp. There is also a link for that under the edit box, that automatically adds the tildes --Serenity 18:42, 5 October 2006 (CDT)

Thanks Serenity. ABC 123 Testing 123 Jxh487 18:54, 5 October 2006 (CDT)

{{Character Data}}

You all set on how this works? --Shane (T - C - E) 14:45, 11 October 2006 (CDT)

  • Yeah, thanks Shane. a quick question how do you upload images onto battlestar wiki? Jxh487 14:50, 11 October 2006 (CDT)
You need to go to BS Wikimedia and register a seperate account there: http://media.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/Main_Page --Serenity 14:52, 11 October 2006 (CDT)
Once you have an account registered there (we usually use the same account name across the different wiki "domains")you can just click the Upload file button in the toolbox on this wiki to take you to the appropriate upload page. It's kind of a pain, but once uploaded it can be accessed at ANY of the wikis around here. --Steelviper 15:31, 11 October 2006 (CDT)
Thanks all, I will get registered Jxh487 15:53, 11 October 2006 (CDT)

Antibody link

Just in case you didn't see it on the other page, as a bio student you should probably know about this:

James, in case you don't see the antibody stuff, you should probably know about this:

Very interesting article about the catalysis of singlet oxygen to peroxide and ozone analogues, but how is this relevant. The 'antibody' debate was focused on resolving the discussion on the degradation analysis point for A measure of salvation, not about the generation of toxic products from non-specific antibodies! I believe this issue has been resolved by the administrators now, so I wouldn't worry, but thanks for trying to help :) Jxh487 15:16, 19 November 2006 (CST)
I wasn't making a point about the discussion per se, just contesting your assertion that "antibodies do not have degradative functionality". Part of how they operate is by generating ROS and causing (albeit non-targetted) degradation. I'm not arguing for the episode, just pointing out that antibodies do degrade things. This might, hovewer, boil down to semantics; being a chemist when I think of ROS I think of oxidative cleavage of biomolecules, ozonolysis of cholesterols and fatty acids, etc, but I suppose you could make the argument that other, say, polymerization, reactions could be occurring, too, which wouldn't be "degradative" per se.TaKometer 20:46, 21 November 2006 (CST)
