How to join

I want to add an "how to join" section on all club articles, I'll contact each club and get them to give me info.

What the f-ck?

I've created several pages here both with "anyonymous IP's" or with my username and my pages have been deleted and re-created under other usernames or IP's. What gives? This is completely unfair for authors.

Hi. Can you maybe point to which pages so that we can investigate? Pacman 18:15, 21 May 2009 (EDT)


Is there a way to have the "Featured article" span the width of the entire page like "Useful external links" instead of being squished in the same column as "Welcome to WikiCU"? --Rab2148 22:36, 24 May 2007 (EDT)

That's my fault. I designed the main page, and I mostly use a 1280x800 screen, so nothing appears squished. However, I do realize that on smaller screens things don't look great. I'll get rid of the calendar just now because it has little use over the summer. This should solve the problem at least for the duration of the summer.  − Reaganaut  01:31, 25 May 2007 (EDT)
OK, I've now made that change. I'm not sure that the main page looks better in general, but it should certainly look better on smaller screens. I've also made it a lot easier for others to edit, so perhaps someone else can have a shot at making it look good. It uses three templates: Template:Box (a simple content box), Template:Box2 (a content box with 2 places for content), and Template:Box-links (a content box for the external links, because I couldn't seem to use Template:Box in conjunction with {{:Links}}). These content boxes are contained within a simple table that's set to 80% of the width of the page.  − Reaganaut  02:20, 25 May 2007 (EDT)


I've removed all the complicated formatting on the main page, so now it's just a simple wiki page like any other. It may not look quite so nice, but I'm hoping this will encourage more edits. So if you want to add something, GO AHEAD!  − Reaganaut  21:26, 16 January 2008 (EST)

I like this aesthetic - nice work! Jiabao 09:22, 17 January 2008 (EST)

We should change one of the featured articles to the pre-frosh article. --AronSora 21:08, 9 May 2010 (EDT)

New User Registration

Is there a procedure whereby people can register as new users? If so, we should make sure it is prominently placed on the Main Page, to accommodate prospective editors. Nateoxford 11:17, 30 June 2011 (EDT)
