    Wikia in there wisdom as the host of Tractor Wiki have again been fiddling with the sites layout and have updated the Editor layout and functionality.

    All feedback (Complaints) should be addressed to Wikia Staff at Wikia central.

    When will they learn that "If its not broke dont fix it" as they allways break it in the precess of so call improving the 'ease of use and customer experience' as the marketing 'experts' roll out the hype for each new 'improved version'

    Looks like popup windows are the way forward !

    The bigger editing space is better, but moving usefull tools and stuff onto popups is not & preiewing in a small box looks rubbish to me.

    After a lot of work by User:Scoty6776 we have passed the 7000 article point. A lot of back ground/ definition of terminology articles to fill in red links in the main articles have been ported from wikipedia. Also a number of vehicle brand and model articles are also being imported to build on to form a database of vehicles in preservation within them.

    A number of missing smaller steam engine builders and custom built engines have been added. The current season of steam rallies has provided some new engines to add the the preservation lists and several events now need lists of the exhibits adding for the 2011 season show.

    Random IP users still assume the summary box magically adds the stuff they type in it to article page even when nothing …

    After a intensive few days of copying and pasting templates from wikipedia to fix some of the missing or broken templates the wanted list is hovering around the 600 mark. A number of extra ones were needed to work with categories as the categorisation has also been looked at to sort out the structure with t5he templates side of it.

    A number of older edit notice templates still require updating to categorise pages in a "Category:Tractor wiki articles needing xyz" rather than "Category:Wikipedia articles needing xyz". I've also taken the oppertunity to implement the use of monthly categories for the clean up templates (as used on wikipedia) now rather than having to comeback later and change even more later. This means less cleaning up of imp…

    Spring clean up

    February 14, 2011 by BulldozerD11

    Following the clearup of a number of wanted Categories by user Scoty6776 I'ved started a cleanup of wanted Templates. Following a look at the vast number of wanted template sub templates and reviewing ways of removing some of the more 'esoteric' ones from the lists of templates in view of the (very) complex and interconected nature of these it was decided it was easier just to copy the rest from wikipedia to 'complete' the set. So after several Hundred templates and sub templates the wanted template list finally dropped below the magic 1000 mark for the first time in 2 years.

    A lot of wanted formating and editing templates are just wanted redirects from alternative titles to some of the article management and citation templates from wikipe…
