For Everyone

We're experimenting with showing the coloured borders arounded icons on Card and Storylet pages! This is being rolled out to Card pages for opted-in users as I type. If you'd like to opt in to the experiment, simply enable the Card Borders gadget in your preferences. (Admin note: now enabled by default --Asarta (talk) 10:09, 14 June 2021 (UTC))

If you have any issues with this experiment—whether opted in or not—or notice any bugs, please don't hesitate to let us know!

EDIT: This has been enabled for all Cards (including Autofire cards) and is currently being rolled out to Storylets.

Changes for Editors

While non-opted-in readers shouldn't notice any changes, this experiment brings two important changes editors need to be aware of:

  1. The images for Card pages should no longer use the [[File:Placeholder2.png|right]] format. Instead, the {{Card}} template now takes an Icon parameter that takes the image name, e.g. |Icon = Placeholder2.png.
  2. Instead of directly adding categories such as [[Category:Silver Cards]] or [[Category:Bronze Storylets]], both the {{Card}} and {{Storylet}} templates take a colour parameter, which can take the values gold, silver, bronze, black, red, or white (default). This parameter will set the appropriate category as well as the image frame.
    UPDATE: As of 12/08/2021, colours purple, green, greenliving, blackzee, and blue are also available.

EDIT: {{Autofire}} and {{Storylet}} now also take Icon parameters that should be used instead of [[File:Placeholder2.png|right]].
