Wow! You're doing a ton of really good updates! Great work. :) --Mark Cunningham 10:56, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Ah, right, sorry, was unclear from the page.

Ok, this is where things are going to get confusing as the award wasn't as clear cut as it is now. Cathal also won an award in 99, I'm just trying to remember who brought home the dragonslayers trophy. I think I shall have to chat to a few people and refresh my memory. Will add in another few winners though.

Hey,are the infoboxes disabled? As I wanted to add a few with logos for cons and so on. --Charles Dunne

Example info box! (you can format this anyway you like)

You can put anything you like here! Lists, links, images, etc. You can also format it a little like HTML and increase the size of the font etc.

"infoboxes"? What do you mean? I haven't disabled anything. As for the logos, feel free to upload them. I enabled uploading a long time back. Are you have issues uploading? --Mark Cunningham 09:33, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Check out the picture box thing here, that's an infobox.

You mean the box on the side with the detailed information? That isn't a feature of wikipedia per say. It's simply a box right aligned on the screen. I've done the same on same pages to hold output of an RSS feed. You use a mix of HTML and the wiki table syntax. I've added a simple example to this page to demonstrate. A nice little trick you can do with Wikipedia though is to create "templates"[1]. So this is page in special part of the wiki that can take parameters. So once you've setup the page, using what ever format you want, you can then just link to the template with the correct parameters and boom, you have an easy to add "infobox". I assume you want to create a Convention info box? --Mark Cunningham 12:12, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Nice! All I really wanted to do was stick a box in the corner and have a thumbnail of the con's logo under the title. Is that possible? --Charles Dunne


You mean, something like this?

There are few image options you can use, check out the mediawiki docs [2]. If you wanted to supply text and some important details, you could wrap it in a table like the infobox and display it that way. But if it's just the image, you can use the "Image" tag and the location options.
