Wigo[edit]

When you added

upneutraldown
-49Andy asks for suggestion on how he can improve the World History mid term exam, but some suggestions aren't welcome....img

you botched up the enumeration: the previous wigo was wigo no. 4679, yours is wigo no. 4780. Such a mistake can be avoided if you follow the instructions, especially:

  1. Type the new entry somewhere on the page, usually above previous ones.
  2. Select the text you just entered and click here.

The second step will create the <votecp poll=wigoxxxx>...</votecp> tags (though they are not to be seen in this way in the preview!) and take care of the enumeration automatically and quite magically!

Thanks for the info and sorry for the problems caused, I missed the part about 'click here' and that was my fault. Might it be helpful to remove or alternatively modify the hidden comment though?
<!--POST NEXT ENTRY HERE. CHECK THE NUMBER OF THE PREVIOUS ONE BEFORE ADDING AN ENTRY. DO NOT REUSE A NUMBER OR LEAVE AN X IN PLACE!-->
It seems & seemed to suggest there should be a number and I should basically be adding the number myself, as the next number from the previous entry. Perhaps something like
<!--POST NEXT ENTRY HERE. DO NOT REUSE AN EXISTING NUMBER ALTHOUGH IF YOU FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS PROPERLY YOU SHOULD NOT NEED TO MANUALLY ADD A NUMBER.-->
I could modify this myself but not sure if there's something I'm missing here.

Don't worry about it. You're not a true RW member until you have completely borked one of the WIGO's. It's like rm -r * from root. Bad Faith (talk) 15:50, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
You do need to be chastised though. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 16:00, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
I understand your confusion: the text is a reminder of a less sophisticated past and it should be changed. --larronsicut fur in nocte 16:33, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
