If you think it'll look better after you re-arrange it, then do it! You can always go back and undo everything...

Dude, inanity is not appreciated. Being ten years old is no excuse. Does your mom know what you're doing?

Yeah, anyway, I corrected some spelling and grammar mistakes in the section on downloadable personalities and added my own little contribution...

Yeah, I put in the vibrating chassis. I also added a little something to the cleaning you're AnthroPC section, what to do if it wakes up while you're taking the head off. You know what might be good, a downloads section, or the like. Maybe various programs to make your AnthroPC more fun.

I was thinking, things like the OED. Make scrabble more of a challenge by storing every word in the english language on your AnthroPC's hard drive. Or if you're not that good, the OED, abridged version.

Put in the downloads section, to tired to do much with it now. Go for it people, invent programs. Oh, and the links that I put there are real, try them.

P.S. Sorry about jacking your credit switchblade. I only meant that I had put in the words vibrating chassis. All hail switchblade for the awesome stuff below that.

I LIKE[/i] those words...

Yeah, no problem dude.

Anyway, I tweaked the "warning" in the accessories section, and added the following to the "Relationships" section:

Quote
AnthroPCs running AnthrOS versions IV and earlier have been shown to develop certain personality disorders if not outfitted with clothing (see our section on Accessories.) Although this problem is being adressed in AnthrOS V, it is strongly recommended that, if your AnthroPC exhibits the symptoms of this glitch, you download the "naturist" AnthroPersonality. This will temporarily resolve the conflict, but will leave your PC with an insatiable desire to listen to John Lennon.



EDIT'd toavoid double posting'd...

Turns out the chassis with a laser is in fact a prototype M-31 battelfield robot chassis (thankyou comic 147). Trivia fixage in process.

EDIT v2.0: fixed. I got a little creative.

Does Jeph ever read this thread? Jeph Jeph Jeph?

Jeph i want to draw some pint-size variations (for a list of models offered by "Anthri Corp or whatever we called them).

Can you tell me how come everything antialiases nicely for you and how you draw perfect pintsizes with no pixely look? I'm gonna guess you start with a 10000087037037x07992737838 image and scale down with some cool program that scales everthing just right which i don't have and will never have. You use ane elipse drawing thing for some parts don't you :p.

Yeah, I was just about to tell people about that - I've really got no clue how to fix it, I was hoping perhaps someone else knew?

Basically, my webhost migrated my entire website to a better server and in doing so a couple of things mucked up. The gallery has been fixed, so the QC wallpapers are all safe, my blog has been fixed but I'm not sure how to fix the wiki - I'm not experienced with the software.

Any smart people can help me out??

Sionide it sounds like.. (shock horror), the file isn't there!?!?! Calling a function that uses that isn't working because it's not there? Skin.php is no more. try skin.php WARNING capitolization* can seriously cock stuff up, avoid if possible.

I think that when your server migrated it screwed up the coding at these points (lines 22 and 27)

More specifically your new setup does not include "/home/sites/sionide.net/www/anthropc/skins"

I'd go in and try to remake the file with your new directories.

No sionide, i was serious, Skin.php isn't at that path. Thats about all i can think of. So you gotta put a new path in. The right one. I would try to help but i don't know the code so i can't. Unless you paste a little extract of that page, tell us the url of the page and the url of Skin.php that might help.

OMFG IM SO STUPID!!! I realised this in the cold light of day*, while i was in school, but QC is blocked by some stupid filter crap, so i couldn't post....
The error is in the page Skin.php (Which really is there.. uhm, i think?) on line 22 it references /home/sites/sionide.net/www/anthropc/skins which is the directory path used by the old web server. The new one uses /home/sionide/public_html/anthropc/skins
You could just open up Skin.php, go to line 22 (or there about-ish) and replace home/sites/sionide.net/www/anthropc/skins with home/sionide/public_html/anthropc/skins.
I imagine you will run into more errors like this though, so maybe you need to mess with the wiki config or you might even need to re-install the wiki (erk, be carefull with this, backup THE WHOLE THING first.) I don't really know because i have NEVER tried to run a wiki. You could always go around changing EVERY reference to home/sites/sionide.net/www to home/sionide/public_html but that could take a while, or it might only take ten minutes.

*Well it was cold this morning, but actually i was in the toasty warm computer room and the sunlight (shining on the moniter because the blinds are broken) was quite pleasent and warming.
