  • Does the Hollow Lore include anything with a viable RP history, or only "admin sanctioned" pages, ie... are custom items of historical importance, or RPs of historical importance considered "Hollow Lore"?

  • Without going overboard and flagging everything, if an item has played a significant role in history, go ahead and flag it. It can always be unflagged later if necessary. These flags are to bring all the useful pages together for the RP Board to go over, and are not necessarily permanent. --Cyllarus 21:12, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

I wasn't sure where else to put this but I was working on a few tasks and someone pointed me to the wiki and the mass deletion log of images. Having been a player that had gotten permission to put character images on previously I'd not thought much about it. My new character I luckily have the images as she is a new character. My older character, Talisia, I no longer have said images. So I'm slightly upset but I can understand why hollow wouldn't want to be the ones directly hosting images on the wiki. That being said, is there a work around as I was attempting to link the images for my new charry from photobucket onto her page but the image links don't work. Only way i can see to do it is to post the links where people have to click on them and that is completely not want I wanted to do as I had been utilizing a visual effect with my pages. I've been learning some coding so if there isn't a solution I'd be willing to work with the wiki team to create such a coding to allow links from offsite image galleries like photobucket to embed images without hollow being the hosting since photobucket or flickr or what not would be the ones hosting the images. Again I understand why they were but a WARNING would have been nice and perhaps saved those of us that might not have the artwork fully backed up on their computers. In my case, Talisia's images were on a old computer that was lost due to well... pc death. Thank you for your time and attention. ~Ayameko 19:39, 23 April 2011

  • The lack of warning is my fault. I have been removing character images as they were being loaded in the last few months, I didn't start the policy with you. Then yesterday when I had to delete a few images from a couple of different players it occurred to me for the first time that we might still have some from earlier on there. So I searched all the uploaded files, and deleted the character pictures, including my own. I apologize for not giving any warning. I assumed that everyone would have their own images on their local computers.--Cyllarus 16:07, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
