DVD Talk Forum Thread Wiki: The Wikipost intro thread
Please read: This is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread. You may edit the Wiki once you have been a member for 90 days and have made 90 posts.
 
Last edit by: The Valeyard
Hi! I am the first public Wikipost ever on DVDTalk!


This entire (infinitely large?) text block is editable by anyone with permission. Right now that's just mods -- but soon it will be any DVDTalker with at least 90 posts AND 90 days on the forum.


No more need to have a first post that a single person is responsible to update with new information -- now everyone can help out!


Typically Wikis are community-policed. If an edit war erupts, you can always contact a mod to help settle it.


All Wikiposts have a HISTORY attached to them, enabling them to be easily reverted for spam, vandalism, or other bad posts.

Oh yeah -- also you'll, notice the little blue WIKI icon in the thread view, indicating threads that contain a Wikipost (and porn).


Start thinking of what you would do with your own DVDTalk wikipost (and porn)!

ps. Want to stop seeing the Wikiposts big and expanded at the top of threads? Just click the (-) and all Wikiposts will default to "collapsed" view. This is cookie-based, so you must have cookies enabled.

ps2. Some regular users can now edit this wiki. VMS Alarms.

OJ trial to start <link to post>
OJ found not guilty <link to post>
OJ Arrested again <link to post>
OJ found guilty - prison <link to post>
OJ released from prison <link to post>
OJ found dead <link to post>
Fred Goldman arrested for OJ's Death <link to post>
Trump Pardons Fred Goldman <link to post>
etc..

For those long threads..
This would be nice.

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

Hey, is there a feature to automatically "expire" posts. This would be so helpful for posting in threads that have Blu-ray and DVD deals. This site works on a lot of deal-related and time-contingent posts, and having the ability to just create a post, then set an expire date (if we knew it or went by the ad we saw) would be fantastic.

Interesting concept. I look forward to seeing it in action...

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

Would "expiration" mean automatic deletion? I could see that causing confusion if something disappeared midstream from a conversation.

Looks like normal users can now start editing wikiposts.

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

You can also add them to already existing threads.. as I did with this one:

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/other-talk/...ry-thread.html

I just did it as a test.. I won't be sad if it's removed.

Overall I think will be a nice feature.

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

So DVDtalk is still behind the basic standard?

Seriously... get your shit together. There are people with less resources making better updates to their own sites than DVDtalk does to itself.

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

Is this going to preface every wiki post title? "DVD Talk Forum Thread Wiki:"

As in:

"DVD Talk Forum Thread Wiki: The Wikipost intro thread"
"DVD Talk Forum Thread Wiki: Zod's feelgood obituary thread"

But it's replaced by an image when non-mobile, right?

no, that's the actual titles of the wiki post in the corresponding thread on non-mobile, which seems unnecessarily long.

for mobile, the entire wiki post doesn't show at all (and the small blue 'wiki' icon doesn't appear in the threads list).

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

Meh...this might be helpful for threads with a small number of pages, but for large threads, I think most of us just go to the most-recent posts for "new info"...I don't see myself going to both the first and last pages of a thread just to see "what's new."

The Wiki post appears at the top of every page, not just the first.

How do you create Wiki Posts? I don't see an option in New Thread Posts.

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

Click on "Thread Tools" at the top of any thread that doesn't already have a Wiki, and there should be an option for "Create a Wikipost"

Tried to create a wiki in the Twilight Time sale thread in blu bargains, got a database error. This was Safari.
Edit to add: Worked on IE.

I think I've figured out that it's adding a link to the wiki that gives that error. I removed the http and added a space so it's not a link to force it to work, fwiw.

Edit to add: more experimentation, was able to remove the spaces to make it a link, appears to be just the "http://" that causes the wiki error
