Today, I did a bit of editing - I made the pages for at least half of the Renaissance technologies, and I started using this minor change. I realized people had been converting my paragraphs into charts, and I realized that they were slightly better, even if they did go against a bit of my reasoning for making these pages in the first place (read). Anyway, all new pages that I make will use these charts, because they make getting the information quicker and easier, plus they make putting the information up there much quicker and easier. The charts also bring some amount of standardization into these pages, which, previously, were kind of random with a bunch of similarities in between. I strongly suggest that anyone else who is making technology pages use these charts, as well.
While putting pictures on each page, I ran into a couple problems:
1) The pictures had a bunch of extra space around them, making the chart look ugly and not like the other charts at all.
2) There were some pictures that I could see elsewhere on the Wiki, but I couldn't find them anywhere in the already uploaded pictures.
I found the solutions to both of these:
1) If you make the picture in full-size, rather than putting the slider all the way to the right, this is fixed. It probably has something to do with the way the slider works, perhaps only putting the pictures a squares, causing the wasted space - full size must not work quite the same way.
2) If you go to where the original picture is found on the Wiki and click on it, it will tell you what the image is called. Then when you're searching for the image, type in something of the image name, and MAKE_SURE_TO USE'_UNDERSCORES'_rather_than_spaces. This should work, especially if you figure out the pattern of naming the original uploader used.
I hope you found this post to be helpful/entertaining; feel free to post questions here, I'll probably see it the next day. ;)
