    • Sorry, missed your chat. Whats up? (I'm in my office today so I doubt we can coordinate a chat time)

  • In my long message to you about being a project leader, I mentioned that your newness gives you an advantage over those of us who have seen everything here for a while. To illustrate the point, I've already learned something from you.

    Whenever I use a <br /> tag, my instinct is always to leave no space before or after the tag. I've noticed that whenever you use the tag, you leave a space before and after the tag. At first, I was going to "correct" your edit. Before I did, though, I remembered that Wikia discards those extra spaces, anyway. Therefore, it doesn't matter to the display whether the spaces are there or not.

    Besides that, the spaces give the eyes a bit of a break by preventing everything in the code from running together. That means the spaces actually make things a bit better.

    I'm probably not going to go chasing down break tags and inserting spaces before and after them all over the site. On the other hand, I'll definitely start using spaces when I create new tags, and I may start adding spaces when editing pages. You taught me something about editing, about a piece of editing where I thought I already knew everything.

    Well done! Thank you.

    • Glad I could help. Generally I try to use spaces wherever possible when I am coding (including wiki editing), unless the given language deals with spaces in a meaningful way. In my experience, though, that has been the exception, not the rule. When things are spaced out, it makes for code that is so much easier to read and work with.

  • Dude, you're working too hard!

    Why on Earth would you manually calculate each individual equivalent capacity and enter them one by one? The smart way to do that would have been to let the Wiki calculate them for you. That method contains a built-in bonus: It sharply reduces the risk of errors. :-)

    While I'm writing this, it occurs to me that you probably don't know the code to use to make the Wiki work for you like that. If you're interested, MediaWiki's parser functions help page is a good place to start. You can find more advanced information on WikiMedia's calculation help page.

    And of course, I always have a trick or two up my sleeve. *wink*

    • I do not know how the game rounds.
      Pixel does not know how the game rounds.
      Different portions of the code were written by different people who, apparently, didn't like to talk to each other. Therefore, the game rounds in different ways depending on the part of the game doing the rounding; plus the game's mood; plus the alignment of Mars, Saturn, and Neptune.

      Since even the developers can't accurately say how the game rounds, I always do "standard" rounding to the nearest integer, and I round after every step of a calculation. Most of the time (98%), I get exactly the same number as the game does. Sometimes, my total is off by a tiny fraction. I can live with that.

    • Yup, that sounds like the Pixel we know and love.

    • Hello, 

      I created pages for the ADtranz OHE Quad and Triple locos (the current Special offer). I uploaded pictures of the 2 locos to the loco pages and to the set pages. I notice all pictures on this site have a transparent background, whereas mine has a grey rectangular background. This is because I took a screenshot of my Shop and cropped around the train, but I don't have editing tools to crop closer. Could someone rectify these two images for me? Or, is there a resource I can use to get rid of the background? The images I uploaded are not up to the quality of this wiki, so I want to improve them! I would love to contribute to this Wiki, but only if I can be up to the standard. Thanks. Ive attached what I'm talking about.
