Approval for creating a template for SGAmod[edit source]

Incredibly sorry if this is not the correct location, please direct me to the correct place if this isn't it. I'm currently part of the team for SGAmod trying to create a wiki. I've noticed it would be helpful to create a template, very similar to the expert mode one, like this, for a difficulty mode the mod adds, but stylized differently (and which also links to the difficulty page, not to the normal expert mode page). As far as I'm aware, the template can't be on a sub-page, as in, I can't have a template of "SGAmod/Template:templatename". So this is me requesting approval to create a template on main domain. (Moreover, if someone can direct me on how to view raw template code, that would be nice. Like stated above, I want to view the code for the expert-mode template)

While there are no admins currently active, I can answer your questions. The template should be named "Template:SGAMod/Templatename", as this is the standard for modded templates. The source editor is the only way to edit templates, you'll have to use that. I could try to create the template, as I have some (limited) knowledge of the way the template works, but you might want to create it instead as you're helping with the wiki. --172.58.4.154 12:03, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
This is absolutely the right place for questions like these, don't worry. It's great to hear you want to create a wiki for your mod!
172.58.4.154 is correct, mod-specific templates are subtemplates of a Template:<modname>, and you don't require admin approval for creating them. I have taken a look at Template:SGAmod/Nightmare and fixed the problems it had. Most importantly, this wiki does not support localization like the vanilla wiki does, since there is no need for that as no translation project has started here yet. Therefore, you can't use {{l10n}} – simply hard-code the strings into the base template code. Secondly, don't use <style> tags. All styling should either be in MediaWiki:Common.css (preferred) or inline, i.e. hard-coded into the template. I have moved your styling code to Common.css; if you want to experiment with it, feel free to do that in your personal personal CSS, and when you want to publish changes for everyone to see, post what needs to be updated on MediaWiki talk:Common.css so an admin can apply your changes.
Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to ask. You can also use the Community noticeboard, if you like.

[edit source]

The mod logo for Qwerty's Bosses and Items is outdated, but I can't upload the new version because it's used on the main page. Could somebody who has the proper user rights do it? — Godslayerchickennugget (talk | contribs) 14:01, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Sure, if you can provide a link to the new logo, I can update it. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 00:08, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
A bit late, I don't have a link to the new logo but I can upload a file that you could then use to update the logo. Would that work? — Godslayerchickennugget (talk | contribs)
Yes, that is possible, too. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 15:54, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Done, it's at File:New Logo (Qwerty's Bosses and Items).png. — Godslayerchickennugget (talk | contribs) 15:58, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Alright, main file is updated. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 16:11, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
