Inputbox

It would be nice if there was an inputbox on the main page. Like this:



Good idea? MarioGalaxy2433g5 10+ {talk/contribs/Logs} 14:29, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

I try to put this on the mainpage. --Bahnpirat 05:54, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Beta?

  • On the main page next to "Brickipedia", there is the word "Beta". Is this really necessary now? NightblazeSaber 08:54, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

New look!

Love the new look on the main page! I saw LegOtaku made it, and I must say, it looks even better than before! -Nerfblasterpro 14:01, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

Template Phail!

I suggest that someone update the feature article section soon, before I start laughing too hard :P Ajraddatz(Talk-BANHAMMER) 01:41, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

Custom LEGO wiki

There's a custom wiki here. 67.121.126.45 21:00, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

Adding Content

I think there needs to be more content on the main page. We have all the "Did You Know's?" on the left side and then a huge blank spot underneath. Maybe we should start brainstorming ideas or just simply move a collum from the right to the left. Construction Worker Do you need help? 23:09, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

I agree. Perhaps good articles under the FA's of the month (like a random good article, similar to Wookieepedia's main page). -Nerfblasterpro: It's Nerf, or Nothing!Maverick 15:48, January 7, 2010 (UTC)
That's true. Maybe instead of updating everyday like Wookieepedia, it can update once a month or so. Construction Worker Do you need help? 21:03, January 7, 2010 (UTC)
What if we added a news collum, not like the other one, but one that covers new and important topics in greater detail. I've started the LEGO News Now on my blog and I was wondering what you would think if we put that on the main page? The first edition is up with startling information. Construction Worker Do you need help? 00:12, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
As good as that sounds, I don't think it would be as good, since we already have a news template. hm...I'm at a blank for now. I'll try to think of something. -Nerfblasterpro: It's Nerf, or Nothing!Maverick 09:41, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
Would it involve less screaming of "LEGO are aiming at kids" in capitals? >_> Kingcjc 09:52, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
lol. Perhaps... :P -Nerfblasterpro: It's Nerf, or Nothing!Maverick 10:25, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
=|... I never screamed anything. That was the other users' comments. Like I said, I only capitalized the title because that's what is done on news websites for breaking news and important topics. Construction Worker Do you need help? 21:24, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
Lately, I created a mock-up of a new main page layout. I also intended to include a new blog-based news system and polls. --LegOtaku (talk • contr) 08:58, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
Now that's what I'm talking about! It's awesome, LegOtaku! I was thinking of mentioning about adding polls but I could never remember it. Do you think we should start a forum for it? Construction Worker Do you need help? 11:57, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
It's awesome! Long, but still good! :) -Nerfblasterpro: It's Nerf, or Nothing!Maverick 13:06, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
Nice Kingcjc 13:09, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
Glad to see it's up now! Looks great! =D Construction Worker Do you need help? 00:15, January 19, 2010 (UTC)

Editing Posts

Okay, this happens to be reoccuring for me lately on lego.wikia.com. If my post is longer than the my screen (when I am typing text), the text area scrolls to the top and you cant see where you are typing anymore. This will also happen if a new post is wider than the text screen is and I can't see the bottom very well while typing as it keeps scrolling up. Any suggestions?

Wow! The same thing happens to me when I hit the preview button (go figure). Maybe contact wikia about this matter. -Nerfblasterpro: I PRESS SMASH BUTTON!Maverick 11:21, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

Competitions

Maybe if we had a running competition for custom Lego Images and the winner gets a certain number of points or even a badge until he/her is beaten by another picture. The winning picture for the year could be posted along the top of the Websit for all to see. --Looster123 03:13, July 2, 2010 (UTC)Looster123

  • All things custom should be on our Customs Wiki. Alternatively, BobaFett2 is running an unofficial competition on MOCpages at the moment for Brickipedian members, so if you're interested, you may want to contact him. NightblazeSaber 04:49, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for that info.

That's actually a good idea (The One You Fear 21:57, March 11, 2011 (UTC))

Which one is a good idea, the MOCpages group or doing it at Brickipedia? LEGO Lord Talk 13,498 Edits! ---- LEGO LOTR is coming! ---- We're in the darkest hour 22:13, March 11, 2011 (UTC)

Search Button

Can I put a search button like this

Jedihunter Talk!!

  • We already have a search button on the sidebar (or is this just a monobook thing?) NightblazeSaber 06:55, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
I think a search bar on the mainpage would look alright. It kind of reminds me of the new page creator search thingy that used to be on the mainpage. -Nerfblasterpro: Can you believe it's only been a year?Maverick 15:10, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • Well i think it will look great under the create article button. If you guys dont want to put it, then its ok. Jedihunter Talk!! 23:25, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • Oh, right. Ignore my comment above :/ I don't mind either way NightblazeSaber 00:08, July 24, 2010 (UTC)
  • um the page is locked. so maybe u can do it? Jedihunter Talk!! 03:53, July 24, 2010 (UTC)


Need More Info on games

I've looked around this wiki, and as a LEGO fan since 90's, i think we need to fix red bricks on older LEGO Video games

Harry Potter book listed twice on main page

In the upcoming books section, the Harry Potter book is listed twice.

Fixed. Thanks ---It's a Kind of Madness--- Kingcjc 20:19, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

Lego-mainpage-adcollision

Hi all. A new advertisement was added to the main page today. I was going to edit the page to fix the collision with the header, but there are so many templates embedded that I didn't want to go picking around with someone's design. Please let me know if you need any help with the layout. —Scott WikiaStaff.png (contact) 18:21, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

Where is it? Is it one of the ugly box ads in the top right corner? Ajraddatz 19:08, February 22, 2011 (UTC)
Guess so ---Keep Calm and Carry On--- Kingcjc 19:28, February 22, 2011 (UTC)
need to move the create an article box, as currently, the adverts block it. (In my case, its an RAC one) ---Keep Calm and Carry On--- Kingcjc 20:18, February 22, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, it's the one on the right. Normally, I could easily adjust the width so that the Brickipedia banner fit into the main section on the left while the ad streamlines with the right column, but I think there are some table elements that open and close in the various templates embedded in the page. I can do a fix, but I figured someone closer to the way the wiki has been laid out would prefer to dig around and find the appropriate code to adjust the table cells, and maybe take the opportunity to simplify it a bit. —Scott WikiaStaff.png (contact) 21:22, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

The "This Month's Logo" section describes the Winnie the Pooh DUPLO figure, but capitalizes "figure" for no good reason. Can one of the administrators change it so it is lowercased? Lego lord 22:59, March 3, 2011 (UTC)

Is it really Jedi1995!? It looks like he's a real vandal (from his talk page), and it doesn't look like anyone has voted for him. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE STRAIGHTEN THIS OUT FOR ME!?

Don't be ridiculous Ajr. We all know April Fools' takes place on 32nd March. (And it is technically April Fools', not April Fool's) - cjc 18:07, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

On this day

In the On this day section you should change "Toys 'R' Us" to "Toys "R" Us" since that is what we go by. The Legend of Swipe Talk LEGOHadraspic Alien Conquest! --- The dawn is coming...

Done. --Cligra A-Pet 23:45, April 2, 2011 (UTC)


Official Friends?

As a request, and (possibly) a new addition to the homepage, could you add [[1]] to your official friends section?It would bring great thanks, as we only have 5 members.

Logo of the month

Ok, I tried ti fix this last time but the page was locked. Now it's changed but it's still completally wrong. I'm fairly certain a boy with a basket is neither a jedi nor a man made of bricks. Can someone please fix this? --TheLairOfRockwhales 17:13, October 1, 2011 (UTC)

That is because you are on monobook, and I haven't made a monobook version as of yet... (so, for 98% of people reading it, it is correct) - Kingcjc 20:39, October 1, 2011 (UTC)

Monobook

Currently I am using Monobook and our mainpage is not understandable at all. If it was a tiny bit more spaced out it would look a lot better but I don't know how to so... can anyone do it? klagoerRollinglaughingsmileyname that user 18:54, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

  • I am too, but my screen must be a bit wider because I don't have any problems. I did notice the slider interfering at one point and said so on the forum about the new main page though. Didn't realise that the other columns were affected too, that's unacceptable, even if there are only a small number of Monobook users. I'll try and see if I can come up with a fix soon when I have the time. NightblazeSaber 22:47, March 11, 2012 (UTC)
  • How is it now? (both Monobook and Wikia users- I did do a Wikia preview, but some feedback as to whether it looks any different would be good. Thanks) 23:48, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

Can somebody change the logo?

Disney Princesses shouldn't be the logo for Brickipedia. It came out a long time ago and there are a lot more themes that came after it. --Joeisawesome 17:25, June 23, 2012 (UTC)

Blank section???

I would just like to point out that their is a blank section at the top of the home page. It has been there for a while now. Can someone get rid of it?

Admiral_Neo Talk_Page

      • Umm.. no? "but maybe 185px"- it's 188.. are you really arguing about 3 pixels? As far as the positioning/captions, that's how that section's always been done :S I agree the main page is a mess though thanks to Wikia's skin change, that's the next thing on my list to try and clean up after making a colour palette table.

        • Oh, okay. The pixels thing - I don't really care bout the size. Second, I was meaning the fact that it says 'Super Spongebob' under it, I thought we just placed the image without a caption. Sorry for any trouble -

Icons

Hey, I made two icons to match the LEGO logo for the sets and minifigures categories. I have no idea how they would get where they belong or if you guys even agree with them. So let me know.

The Lego Movie

Is there any merit in having a larger presence of The Lego Movie on the homepage? The only mention I see now is in the slideshow halfway down the page, and that only links to an out-of-date page ("The LEGO Movie is out in just a few days...") with a pole on it. Can we link to The LEGO Movie or The LEGO Movie (Theme)? It feels like a wasted opportunity. :( --Crockalley (talk) 14:25, March 9, 2014 (UTC)

The main page is locked so that just admins can edit it. Which is good,except there are no admins. When there are new admins this will be changed.--DownloadToa Matau To the archive!47307dg 19:03, March 9, 2014 (UTC)
So there's no one "tending the store" right now? When The Lego Movie was at the top of the box office for three weeks in a row and all we get on the home page of Brickipedia is a little pole on the sets? That's unfortunate. --Crockalley (talk) 20:36, March 9, 2014 (UTC)
