Aren't the Aperture Science Speaker System and Aperture Science Announcement System the same thing? They're just PA systems. Also, I added invisible G and R letters in OverWiki:Projects/Portal to allow sorting the columns with signs only. So be careful when you update lists, and don't forget that the 2 pics have different sizes. Klow 23:24, June 26, 2011 (UTC)

Now it's even more messy! I changed them to templates, though. Much easier. :P I considered the Announcement System to be the prerecorded messages, and the speaker system to be the actual PA system that GLaDOS uses in Portal. Maybe the Announcement System could do with a better name? In the article I tried to describe it as the Announcer voice. Bramblepath 09:36, June 27, 2011 (UTC)
Isn't a PA system used for both prerecorded and live messages? And good job for the templates, dunno why I didn't think of it myself... Klow 09:40, June 27, 2011 (UTC)
Well, I mean that the Announcement System is the specific voice making announcements, rather than the actual system by which announcements are made. They both seem to have different roles, as the speaker system is used for communication two ways (potentially) and the Announcer is simply making announcements through the test chambers.

I dunno, f**k it. Klow 23:13, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

Float:left on article templates[edit]

Don't use float:left on article templates, AFAIK float can't be used on tables. SiPlus 17:24, 30 December 2011 (MSK)

There are bugs on templates that cause them to appear wrong, such as here. Bramblepath 03:13, 31 December 2011 (MSK)

Bug after logging in[edit]

When I log in, I get Special:Badtitle. SiPlus 13:26, 31 December 2011 (MSK)

That should be fixed after we allow viewing. What about the error I mentioned above? Bramblepath 16:41, 31 December 2011 (MSK)
Any screenshots about that error? I see nothing wrong with float:left. And, the article templates are 100%-width tables. I forgot to update permanent management tags, maybe that was the issue, I updated them now. SiPlus 17:49, 31 December 2011 (MSK)
On Displacer Cannon the images template is off the page. Bramblepath 20:32, 31 December 2011 (MSK)

Wikia Move - Good Choice![edit]

I just have to say that your decision to move from Wikia to a self-hosted Wiki was a good move. Several Wikias I belonged to did just that. SmashWiki was one of them and they did the move a year ago or so. Wikia is definitely balls when it comes to user-friendliness and even website design. SmashWiki says so right here. --Wildgoosespeeder 18:50, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Image thumbnails not generating[edit]

Greetings, Bramblepath. I'm leaving you this message to inform you of an issue on the Overwiki that I believe only you have the ability to address. Currently, all new image thumbnails are failing to generate. The thumbnails simply come up as the text "Error creating thumbnail:". You can see an example here. This has put the process of adding images as well as the restructuring of existing images on hold. I'm afraid I have no idea what I can do myself in this situation, so if you would be so kind, any assistance would be much appreciated. Marphy (talk) 14:21, 29 May 2013 (BST)

Uploading sound files.[edit]


I am trying to upload some Nihilanth sound files but there are no Cat subjects/Cat types about it.

What should I do?
