Wow, that was a mistake. I don't know how that happened as I was just browsing up and down the category tree structure. Never intended to delete. I remember stopping on Weyrleader because it looked like the Weyrleader category had Weyrleader as a category, but it was the Weyrleader article instead. No excuse on my part. Thanks for catching it.
Do you have any objections to me using the Wikki Background on another non-profit website? I can send you a link to it but I won't have the page that I'd like to use the background on ready for a while.
And, finally, about of Craft. The total chaos in these articles (their design, categories and lack of many) stops me from modernizing the Main Page - it's unclear where and what links to make. >_<
The main question is whether it is worth dividing the articles into two types
Article about craft (Beastcraft/Farmercraft/Harpercraft - category only Craft)
Article about the place (Harper Hall/Healer Hall/Smithcrafthall category only Hall included in the categorys of Craft and Place)
Or do one general article about of Craft, included in the categorys of Craft and Place.
The second question is whether to keep separate articles about professions (Healer, Dolphiner, etc.) or include them in the description of the Craft. The fact is that some types of crafts and professions are of the same name and / or they can not be described quite completely separately from each other (for example - runners, traders, bakers).
My opinion is that Crafts and Locations should be seperate. Each article on a craft should stick to what the craft is and what it does, and then a list of the known crafters. Then there should be seperate articles for each craft-hall which details where it is, its history and features, and then any prominent residents.
Each entity would only have to have one main category - "Craft" for the articles on Crafts and "Crafthall" for the articles on Crafthalls. You would also enter the crafthall's location as a category, but I can't think of another category to add to the Crafts (well, maybe "Original" and "Post-AIVAS" distinction)
I tried and finished the work on the Weyrs to finally start thinking about the structure of the Craft. However, in the process, I suddenly became involved in Geography of Pern. Can you see and evaluate the new look of the list? In the description of the previous one, it was said about the possibility of grouping the list by location and I realized it, as I saw it.
In connection with the change in the appearance of the navigation menu, I see that it is necessary to change the logo: the red color does not look good on the green field and the text logo duplicates the name of the wiki on the right.
I made some sketches. You can choose one or more and I will work through this option more carefully. If possible - describe why this or that sketch is selected. I will clarify just one thing - the red circle on the logo is added for the visual volume, symbolizes the Red Star and supports the red color of the headings on the Main Page.
Agreed. The header will need some work - and I love your ideas for a new logo (see bielow).
I checked several other Wikia sites and most of them have the similar issue with the graphical logo right next to the new text logo. Also, the new design appears to create some duplicate menu items - many wikia admins have work to do...
Also, on our navigation area you will have to modify the "Explore" item since the default navigation has its own "Explore" entry.
Regarding the logo examples you designed - my wife and I really like number 2. I think that having the Red Star as a background is a great idea, and I have always really liked that particular dragon image.
I think your idea will be fine. Maybe you could add a 4th item labeled Community. Go ahead with your idea and we can wait and see on my idea. Going to bed now in Southern California. Where are you located?
Some communities have had very strong feelings about the Message Walls and Comments. I have not made the change for several reasons. The main reason is that you apparently lose direct access to all the former Talk Page content.
