Image sources[edit source]

Please remember that when uploading artwork like File:Dream Portal full.jpg, you should include a link to the source where you got the image from instead of just leaving it empty. Including sources for information and images is about the most fundamental and basic part of any wiki site. --DeludedTroll (talk) 18:03, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Admin offer[edit source]

I'm pretty late on this since I missed the recommendation on the community portal page, but I would like to belatedly offer you a promotion to admin. The biggest practical upshot here would be gaining the ability to edit the main page and other protected pages, along with user administration tools that rarely need to be used here. Please let me know if you're interested. SBEyes (talk) 23:44, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

Yes, thank you, I'm really interested. Along with this, I feel it necessary to inform you that I would most likely sue it for deleting unnecessary files/articles or moving them without redirection, since I have no experience in wiki publishing or programming, so I don't know what other tools are included in administratioon tools. Podstail12 (talk) 00:23, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
That's alright, but keep in mind that it's usually best to try to find a sensible page to redirect to rather than delete. From a search engine ranking perspective, it's usually better to try to find a reason not to delete unless there's just no sensible page to redirect to at all. And also, thank you and congratulations. SBEyes (talk) 00:35, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Thank you too. By the way, I want to ask two questions so that I don't have to write them on your talk page.
1) May I delete the articles without notifying the users who created them?
I mean most likely full arts or pages that don't comply with wiki rules (like Tauren hero). Also Data:Cards/The Gangs All Here! has about 3-5 redirect pages which is a little exceed in my opinion. I'll move it later to Data:Cards/The Gang's All Here!(91208) anyway.
2) Some cards are sometimes being broken here. I'm not saying that happens because of using Template:gold, but it's easy to fix them is this case. And also several Tombs of Terror and The Dalaran Heist bosses are broken now, and I'm not sure how to fix them. Podstail12 (talk)
1) Yes, you may. If it's on their watchlist, they should get notifications for this if they don't have them disabled.
2) Any text in cost, attack, or hp fields will cause issues. {{Card infobox}} is trying to store those in integer fields, and any text there will likely cause the entire card to fail to store and disappear from card listings. SBEyes (talk) 01:20, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

<br> in card data[edit source]

Hello, why is it better to add <br> in the card data like you did with the Blessings from the Tavern Brawl? I personnally think it would be better without it, especially in card tables. --Mattheus 45 (talk) 20:21, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

On the contrary, I don't really like it when a card table becomes a little wider due to the lack of paragraphs in the description, and the text seems to pile on each other. And presence of this symbol ( <br/> ) on hs-wiki if it's missing in the game assets is not important to me, since it doesn't cause any troubles with a templates, coding stuff, and so on.

In fact, tables that are too wide don't automatically add line breaks to fit the window's width. I think it would be better to tweak how tables behave on the wiki rather than adding line breaks when they don't really make sense. --Mattheus 45 (talk) 10:37, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
