  • Nice layout on your Main user page. --wisemx 04:22, 23 Mar 2006 (PST)


If the border is may be harder to tell when a note ends—ts2do 23:50, 30 Mar 2006 (PST)

Maybe add a slight indent then. Jupix 00:04, 31 Mar 2006 (PST)
This is true, I didn't take it into consideration. However, most notes are short and they don't need the complete width of a page, making the border look ridiculous.
Maybe we can make the complete note italic ? I think it's correct use of italic formation because a note is more important than other things. --Vaarscha 00:05, 31 Mar 2006 (PST)
But is it really more important? After all, it's just a note - an appendix to another paragraph, appendix which tells the reader something about the subject matter, something that doesn't deserve an equal looking paragraph of its own (although most notes would).
Simply put, I'd consider italic for template:warning but not for notes. Just my $0.02. Jupix 03:10, 31 Mar 2006 (PST)
I'm fine the way it is. I was just doing my post at the same time you did yours, but you did submit it before me. I decided to put my stuff up anyway. However, I think I have to disagree with your definition of a note. A note shouldn't go into an equal paragraph because it's meant to caught the eye of the reader. A note should be something important, a common mistake, etc. It's highlighted so people notice it, even if they are only briefly reading the article. --Vaarscha 04:07, 31 Mar 2006 (PST)
Well, definition of note aside, I think they won't go unnoticed :) Jupix 04:43, 31 Mar 2006 (PST)

Why did you change something that wasn't broken? Blue? Framed?? Red??? Everytime someone writes "Note:" as a side note, like "Note that you can also use a npc_headcrab as a handy floatation device.", someone will come along and change it to this template, and has also done this in the past, and all of a sudden it now becomes the most important thing on the page:

Note.png Note: Headcrabs main use: Walking Xen floatation devices.

If you want an important note, why not create an "important" template instead? If you keep it, we'll have to check all the pages using this template, and write "Note:" instead of the template, fully knowing that someone will come along and template it again. --Andreasen 13:17, 31 Mar 2006 (PST)

1. I changed the blue because it looked like a link you could click, which was confusing.
2. It wasn't a sidenote before we changed it. Frame + blue did already show that it was important. We didn't change the meaning of the note, only the graphical implementation. --Vaarscha 05:37, 1 Apr 2006 (PST)
Just a week ago it was black without a frame and used as a sidenote, and didn't show any importance, so the meaning of the note was changed before you changed it. It wasn't ment to be important. It just got screwed up. --Andreasen 12:38, 1 Apr 2006 (PST)
It was black and the text italic for a half year. When text is italic, it means it's important. That's how I used it, and other people used it as well - not as a sidenote. That aside (hoho), you don't need a template to write one word bold when you have to type the complete word itself for the template anyway! --Vaarscha 13:36, 1 Apr 2006 (PST)
Well I hope you're right about me being the only one to have used the note template excessively then. --Andreasen 16:42, 1 Apr 2006 (PST)


Why don't you make HEAT?—ts2do 06:55, 4 Apr 2006 (PDT)

I will! However, I am currently (well, since a month...) working on new texts that describe the current stage of development and what will be in our initial release better and more accurate than what you can currently read on the website. When those are finished, I'll do HEAT. --Vaarscha 07:22, 4 Apr 2006 (PDT)

by the way do you know where i can download 'heat' (the mod on your front page)? or would i have to buy it? --Game4ever 10:42, 15 May 2006 (PDT)game4ever
It's not released to the public yet, we're still working on it... some fans had the chance to play it already, though. --Vaarscha 11:03, 15 May 2006 (PDT)
