Please link directly to Tspin Methods from the main page of the wiki. At the very top of the Tspin Methods page is a link to the "main article' of the basic tspin page. That's why simply changing the flow of redirects to the main page would make everyone happy.

The Tspin Methods page is very important, and aside from some concept pages like 'skimming' or 'parity', it's what most advanced players would be interested in.

However, there is no link to it from the main page. I have it bookmarked, and otherwise can only find it because I know where to look. First you have to click on 'Tspins' then scroll down to the very bottom and go to See Also: 'Tspin Methods'. That is not ideal navigation for what is arguably the most important section.

The 'Tspin' page which is linked to directly from the main page is rather worthless, especially in having any value as something that you would revisit. Rather than have the 'Tspin' page link to the 'Tspin Methods' page, I think it should be the other way around. Unfortunately, that very basic Tspin page has 32,000 hits! This is embarrassing people people otherwise directed to that more detailed methods page would be seeing some amazing information. It also is a kink in the advancement of collective knowledge if you think of all the people who could have learned about prophesy spins or STMB Caves but instead just saw a basic page and decided not to come back anymore.

Thanks for reading.

PS. I even went through the length to create a dedicated link to the tspin methods instead of the front page of the wiki so that A) more people could find it and B) because I honestly think it functions as a better (or at least more important) main page. http://worldthought.com/links/link/27-hard...t-spin-methods/ For the record, my name is Eric not John; that's an imaginary character.

I have a lot of Harddrop bookmarks, so I made that link from my own site for quicker access. But I don't think a lot of people are going to make their own websites just to more easily access the content on this one.

That said, I agree that it should be more visible.

Yeah, never noticed that considering there is an identical anchor link beside it for 'popular pages'. We should haven't to rely on tooltips/hovering to deal with equivocation issues like that. I think it should be bold and at the top, and with a proper anchor link.

Ok I granted access to edit the main page found a solution for this, which I will leave unless there are any objections:

The second 'T-Spin' was renamed to 'T-Spin Methods', moved to the top of the list, made bold, and capitalized. This is the sort of thing that a tag cloud does to draw attention to the most highly trafficked links. This is what we really want traffic to (as opposed to board games about tetris etc). Hopefully this will help the T-Spin methods section to make it to the 'Most Popular Pages' list!

That being said, I would like to make a suggestion which is still beyond my control, that the 'Home' link actually links to the main page. Instead, you must hover over 'Home', wait for the dropdown menu, then hit 'Main Page'. Took me 3 days to figure that one out so I know I'm not the only one...

LOL, Sisu became a Wiki Admin without having edited the Wiki once.

Hey Sisu, I have a proposal. Replace Cultris with Cultris II on the Sidebar. Perhaps this would motivate people to edit the Cultris II page. Wink.png

Behind the scenes, Sisu pleaded with me for two years to come back on board. That's dedication! Don't knock the behind the scenes work!

Just wanted to add that I put in a link to the advanced spin section at the top of the highly trafficked (and overly-basic) T-Spin page. Of course if there are any objections then I will consider them, but I believe this completely resolves the problem now.

That little red box isn't actually there, it's just my "nofollow extension" on Chrome.

This isn't really a feature but of is 2014 now so you should change the 2009-2013 to 2009-2014 at the bottom of the page.

Automatic refresh setting on/off for homepage - I might receive a PM.

Edit: Also the page navigation buttons, which exists for threads that come up in search results, for the front page threads, so users don't have to click twice to get to the most recent post.

Hi, could you please change the shoutbox clock into a 24-hour clock?
Or could you append "a.m." or "p.m." at the end of each timestamp?
It helps me to fix a bug in my jkwon23 Saver script.

Don't let M_Bison down! Please consider rewriting the YouTube URL parser on HD.
M_Bison: Also, cant upload my new vid to HD...keeps sayin 'video needs to be from youtube'....which it IS :/ Oh well...

The YouTube URL parser currently used on HD can only read something like
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Where a better one should be able to read
1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...&p2=...p3=...&pn=...#location.hash...
2. both http and https
3. youtube.com and youtu.be

Let's make M_Bison happy again!
