  • Copyright. I would like add a few songs from the books to the wiki. But I don't know how what the copyright laws about this are. I is something that you are allowed to quote but you can't use large parts. I think this is something in between but were? (1 couplet from a song?) Scafloc 07:58, 10 May 2007 (CDT)
    • For poems, I'd say no more than 20% of a poem should be quoted. This seems to be squarely within reasonable amounts for fair use purposes. --Ran 11:09, 10 May 2007 (CDT)

  • On what page from which book is the song "The Reyne of Castamere"? Scafloc 07:58, 10 May 2007 (CDT)
    • Don't have the book right now, but it first appear in ASOS in the Arya chapter where the BWB hang Septon Utt. Tom o'Sevens sings it when it starts raining. And of course during the Red Wedding Catelyn remembers some verses.--The hairy bear (Send me a raven) 09:40, 10 May 2007 (CDT)
Thanks! Yesterday I did a lot of searching and I only came up with some lines of the Red Wedding. Scafloc 09:49, 10 May 2007 (CDT)

  • How do you change the $wgLogo path? --Eleventh 20:36, 5 January 2008 (CST)
    • I think only the administrator: Ran can do that, but I will look into that.Scafloc 11:04, 7 January 2008 (CST)
      • Thanks, if you need help making a logo, I could give it a try. Eleventh 20:25, 7 January 2008 (CST)

  • Why doesn't this Wiki have Search Suggest? It's so handy. Fatidiot1234 04:26, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
The wiki used to have this. Maybe it was not a default option in the latest upgrade of the software. Maybe you could ask Ran here or on the forum? Scafloc 12:28, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
Okay, it's a skin issue. Will be looking into fixing this some time soonish. --Ran 11:10, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Fatidiot1234 14:08, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Now you've done it. Thank you very much indeed. Fatidiot1234 23:17, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Who could I talk to about a very minor change to the CSS stylesheet? Simply adding "sup { line-height:1em; }" vastly improves the look of the pages, since it corrects the superscript's vertical alignment to not add extra padding to that line. Visual77 19:24, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Tell me about special pages. The community portal directs to the 'Wanted List' / 'Wanted Pages' page [1]. I love the idea. But you cannot edit that page. What would be even better is if the system automatically added Page-creation-entries to this page for all wiki hyperlinks that direct to non-existent pages. Who do I talk to? What do I do. --GreenHand
I don't understand what you mean. On the Community Portal there is a link to a generated report of not existed pages that have at least two links to it. As it is a generated report, with the title "Wanted pages" you cannot edit it. Scafloc 10:28, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
  • How are subpages created? They are mentioned in the instructions for creating a new "Did you know?" and I can't find anything in the help section about them. And also, when I sign my name, it comes up as very small type in a dotted box. Example below, at least for me. Please explain in layman's terms.

Subpages are only used for "Did you know" fact and "Feature quotes". It is not the intention to create more subpages. One exception that is for theories. If for example you want to create a theory subpage for Tysha. Go to the Tysha article and add the existing url in your browser "/Theories". The url should now be http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Tysha/Theories Press enter/return to go there. If the page does not exist you can create it just as a regular page.
Don't know about the signature. Can yo go to Special:Preferences and look at your preference regarding your signature?Scafloc 02:21, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
