First Blog is First

Hello fellow modders, Ghouly here!

I have not had the pleasure of posting a blog ever before in my life, so bear with me as I deliver the good news, the bad news, and any updates I want to give to you, that is if anyone besides Lexx is reading (*Maniacal laugh, followed by -10 Karma for Ghouly*). Unfortunately, this edition will be very boring and uneventful with no pictures or eye candy, but hopefully more interesting blogs will follow. Well, enough of my babbling, time to get to the content...

Custom Art Repository

Hey hey, that old thing? That's right, it's still here on the wiki! So to all you modders: don't hesitate to upload your custom art up on here! If you need any assistance with uploading your FRM's, you can always ask yours truly to help, or Dude101, if he's in the neighborhood. I'd like to see each and every category of art filled to the brim before I die! (*Again, maniacal laugh*)

Rich Text Editor

This is probably the most important part of the blog, wiki-wise. Well, for those of you who do not know, the Rich Text Editor is a piece of software used on this wiki for editing articles. I bet you're wondering "why on earth would Ghouly propose to get rid of it then?". I, personally, think the RTE is a piece of junk. In the past, I have experienced multiple bugs and glitches while using it, such as my edits to pages not submitting, and other inconveniences. Also, you cannot edit templates directly with the RTE, which is what I spend most of my time doing.

And not to mention, when you try to manually add line breaks to article content, the formatting is screwed up. I just don't like it. Alright, I lied, there is one picture for you to see: here

This is a new reason I don't like the RTE, which came with the new skin for the wiki. This makes text harder to read with the background in the way.


Alright, I might sound a little biased towards getting rid of the RTE. That's why I am offering the chance to everyone to comment below voicing their opinion. Tell me if you want the RTE to stay forever, and it will stay forever. Tell me you want it's ass out the door, and that's where it'll go.

That's all for now, folks! More to come soon... -- Ghouly89 (Talk)
