4E Question about the wikia templates

I really love the style that the templates enable us to present our character info.

What I'd really love to do is take these templates and start my own wiki for my other pbp campaigns.

I wanted to find out if there is anyone I needed to ask permission to reuse them and if anyone had them in an easily portable form.

I could edit the templates and grab a copy of each one, but that is time consuming and I would hate to accidentally screw them up with an inadvertent edit.

Thank you.

check with [MENTION=36973]stonegod[/MENTION] and [MENTION=46559]covaithe[/MENTION], they know everything about everything.

I think the only way to do it is by editing and copying. Don't worry too much about an inadvertant edit; the pages are versioned and can be reverted if you somehow mess it up.

As for permission, short version: do it. I'm pretty sure it was me that put together at least the bulk of the original templates, way back in the day, though they've been extended and tweaked by others since then. I certainly don't have a problem with you using it. Also, wikia content is CC-BY-SA by default, and no one has objected to that. I'd say you're clear.

True for the L4W; I wrote the LEB ones from scratch save for the Math sections (which is why the two look and work different).

You'll probably have to copy as you can't cross link across Wikia's, methinks.

You two are my heroes. :D
 
Thank you [MENTION=36973]stonegod[/MENTION] and [MENTION=46559]covaithe[/MENTION]. Do either of you have any thoughts on my proposal regarding mounted combat for heavier races? It's been hanging around for a while without much in the way of feedback.
 
So it takes 3 votes to approve or reject a proposal, so all proposals remain in limbo unless there is unanimous consensus among the 3 judges.

Maybe we need a proposal to overhaul the proposal process. ;)

TwoHeadsBarking, stonegod and KarinsDad are the only active judges I believe.
Correct: r1 vanished, evo retired (come back!), evilbob retired; the rest vanished some time before that. KD focuses more on game judging (though I think he'll do some proposal judging depending on his time).

I'm on travel can cannot look at proposals right now.

I'm actually moving, so my ability to judge is even more on the back burner. On the other hand, I'm only DMing one game here instead of two and I'm playing in zero games as a player instead of two.

I wish I could find the time to actually review a PC. But with the new Character Builder, it just takes too long. I really want to have players be allowed to send the judges their Character Builder files if they have them so that we can review a PC quickly.
 
[MENTION=2011]KarinsDad[/MENTION]: That would be as simple as having us export the short text and paste it on the wiki, but the problem is that there is no guarantee that what is given in the short text (which is then imported into CB) would accurately match that which is put into the templates on the wiki. But as long as that's only a tool for comparison (which is how I do it when I review) then that would work!
