Hello and welcome to Fanlore! I noticed that you added several fanwork templates to your user page. Unfortunately, the fanwork template automatically includes a fanwork category, so your page is now incorrectly sorted in the fanworks category. We don't currently have any templates designed for the user page other than the User Template. You can check out the Fanlore Contributors category to see how some other users are listing their fanworks.--æthel 21:05, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi, another regular editor here. I've seen that you tried to correct the problem addressed above, but the naming scheme you used with Fanworks:Holdt is not standard either. Have you looked at other pages in the wiki and browsed around a bit? Skimmed the help pages? The naming conventions are described in Help:Naming Conventions. Each fanwork documented gets its own page, with series (such as zine series) being sometimes put on a single page. So if you want to make a page for one of your vids, like the one called "Only You", you make a page called Only You, for example by clicking on that red link there. Then you put the template you found on that page, with the info and describe the vid.

If the title is already in use like for example In Another Life there are already zines called that, so there is something called a disambiguation page in that place. Then you would title the page for your vid In Another Life (Stargate SG-1 vid), and link it from the disambiguation.--RatCreature 00:13, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

For what it's worth, I think what Holdt is trying to do (Hi, Holdt! ^_^) is making a nice user page (the intro page still tells all new users to start with their user page) with all the vids listed in a pretty format. The idea to use the fanwork templates for that is kind of inspiring, even if it doesn't work in this format. Sadly we don't have a template for what Holdt is trying to do, but I think a table might be the solution. If I find the time tomorrow, I'll experiment a bit to see if there is a way to format the vid info in a way that would make the user page look like what Holdt has in mind. --Doro 00:21, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
I'd give Holdt some time. --Mrs. Potato Head 01:42, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks everyone - I'll keep working on my understanding here. :) --Holdt 02:22, 24 April 2010 (UTC)


Hello Holdt,

I promised you that I would try a table for your vid information. Here is what it could look like. If that's what you were trying to do, just copy and paste it to your userpage (and expand as needed). Now that you have created individual fanwork pages for your vids, you could also wikilink them in the table. Editing tip: If you want to wikilink a page like In Another Life (Stargate SG-1 vid) but prefer to have it displayed as In Another Life, you can format it like this [[In Another Life (Stargate SG-1 vid)|In Another Life]]. :) --Doro 10:41, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Summary: From River's POV, as she senses it all but is powerless to explain her understanding. Simon wonders why he can't stay away from Mal. Mal wonders why he can't resist Simon's looks even though he knows the boy is trouble. They'll do anything to touch... anything. What they have is the brightest spark they can hold on to. River gets in the way despite herself. In the end, Mal decides that if River's issues are the only price he has to pay to be with Simon, then Simon's worth it.

Doro, that is awesome! Thank you so much! I'll get on that asap.--Holdt 14:00, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Uh oh - I'm not sure why the inside link for the BITE: The Big One page isn't working correctly - can someone help me figure out what I'm doing incorrectly? Thanks! :D --Holdt 18:52, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

It's the italics markup. If you put them outside the link brackets like this: ''[[BITE: The Big One]]'' it should work and you'd get: BITE: The Big One--facetofcathy 19:44, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Faceofcathy, thank you so much! :D
