Hi, LordSnow - just wanted to say, on Kavalier & Clay, that was one heck of a spoiler you just added about Thomas. I mean, I know there's a spoiler warning, but... well it's up to you, I'm not gonna delete anything, just sayin'. Thanks for the Army/Navy correction. --Hob 03:11, 29 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Pulitzer infoboxes[edit]

If you want to turn the "previous & next Pulitzer winners" box into a widely used thing, it'd probably be a good idea to use a parameterized template, so you don't have to edit a million pages to make minor tweaks to the format. This could be used for any similar awards list, not just Pulitzers. This is my first attempt to use that feature so I hope it works (edit Template:Literary award navigation to see the details):

Preceded by: Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri (2000 winner)

Pulitzer Prize Winners for Fiction

Succeeded by: Empire Falls by Richard Russo (2002 winner)

Well, almost. It comes out looking almost okay, but all the links are for some reason edit links - even for pages that obviously exist, like 2000 and 2002 - which is no good. I don't know why this is happening, & I'm asking over on the Wikimedia Templates talk page - will keep you posted. --Hob 16:26, 2004 Aug 6 (UTC)

Now it looks a little better - found a ridiculously complicated workaround - but now all the links are not edit links, even if they should be (i.e. even if the linked articles don't exist). So maybe this isn't ready for prime time yet... --Hob 05:52, 2004 Aug 7 (UTC)
Okay, I finally got it to work. The trick is that you have to put the [[ ]] around the authors and titles in the parameter list, rather than in the template. I also tweaked the table padding a little for prettiness, and made the year links go to the corresponding "____ in literature" articles. I've gone ahead & used this for Kavalier & Clay and several of the other novels; to see how to use the template, just edit those articles (or this page), copy the big thing that starts with {{Literary award navigation... and just replace the authors, titles, and years (being careful not to overwrite any of the [ ] | stuff).

Are you going to leave a warning on the talk page of the anonymous use who defaced the Steampunk article? I certainly suggest that you do so. ---Charles 04:41, 22 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

California Tricolor[edit]

Hi, LordSnow. Fr. Ian Adkins is a California ex-pat living in New York, who has been desperate to get back for the last dozen years, but things keep cropping up -- currently he's doing a master's degree in New York, as is his fiancee. He's keenly interested in California secession however, largely as a means of halting erosion of local culture. E-mail him at -- Qinshihuangdi 01:23, 2007 Feb 27 (UTC)
