Quotation to NQuote

Hi OfMonstersAndWerewolves, just to let you know, there's no need to change {{Quotation}} to {{NQuote}} in articles. Template:NQuote was created specifically for nested quotes. Template:Quotation is the original quote template and allows an alternative attribution format. It is not deprecated and can be left in articles where quotes don't need to be nested. --sparc 21:43, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi sparc. Yeah, I think the first time I found out about the NQuote was when I was trying to figure out how to portray a Tumblr reblog or something.
The reason I've been changing some of the quotation templates to NQuote templates is because the NQuote also adapts to any overlaps, if that makes sense. So for instance, opening a content page in the info box when there's a quote below it would normally just have the info box expand over the quote box. The quote would move, but the box wouldn't. But with an NQuote it does.
It's not a massive difference, but imo at least it does make the pages look a bit better in terms of layout and format.
There may be a different way of doing it though of course that I don't know about. And I could be missing something. OfMonstersAndWerewolves (talk) 22:45, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
Ah, I forgot that the Quotation template still has the overlap issue! That makes sense why you were changing them - I agree that it looks better. Although I would prefer to fix the Quotation template rather than swap everything to NQuote :) I restarted the conversation at the template talk page since a fix was proposed a long time ago and never got implemented. Thank you for the reminder! --sparc 23:57, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Advanced Editor Invitation

Hey there, OfMonstersAndWerewolves! I’m reaching out as a member of the Fanlore Committee. Thank you for all that you've done - it's always great to see your contributions.

We wanted to make sure you'd received an email we sent a couple of weeks ago inviting you to become an Advanced Editor. Fanlore Advanced Editors have special editing rights on the wiki, most importantly the ability to move and delete pages. You can learn more about Advanced Editors and what is involved in being one via our dedicated page on Fanlore.

If you're not interested, that's totally okay - but since we hadn't heard from you, we wanted to follow up, in case our email (or your reply!) got caught up in our system. If this is the case, you can reply to this and we'll go from there. Alternatively, you can contact us via our contact form, or email me.

Thank you for all of your hard work!

Fanlore Staff

Hi! I've looked through my emails and can't seem to find any email related to Advanced Editors.
That being said, I'd love to become an Advanced Editor! -- OfMonstersAndWerewolves (talk) 11:18, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Eskici. Tagging in case not seen yet -- OfMonstersAndWerewolves (talk) 15:53, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
OfMonstersAndWerewolves We're delighted that you've accepted our invitation to become an Advanced Editor. We have already authorized your new status and you now have full Advanced Editor rights. We have also added you to an IP block exemption group which will prevent your account from being automatically flagged by our IP block tool, for example if you use a VPN.
Important: There is a two-week trial period for all new Advanced Editors. You need to complete the Move and Delete Page tutorial before April 27 to keep your new status. Otherwise, we will automatically revert the change in status and you will be demoted to normal editor rights.
If you are interested in getting even more involved with Fanlore, you can also apply to our Gardener program! Gardeners are responsible for monitoring the wiki and keeping it free from spam, and answering occasional user queries. They are official Fanlore volunteers.
Thank you for your contributions to Fanlore and have fun editing!

That Margot Robbie edit

Just a quick note regarding your edit on the Margot Robbie page today - thanks for that! The link I removed actually went to the disambig page Suicide Squad, so I didn't catch that there was a second film of (almost) the same name that I should have corrected it to instead. I appreciate the catch :) -- Malcontent (talk) 23:29, 1 November 2023 (UTC)

No problem! Tbf, I created the page and added the links initially so it's my fault it went to the disambig page in the first place. -- OfMonstersAndWerewolves (talk) 20:21, 2 November 2023 (UTC)
