Indentation[edit]

The indentation used in creating messages like the one seen here is problematic, for accessibility reasons.

The code used is:

[[File:TWA guide left bottom.png |left|link=]]
:::::'''Hi [Username]!'''  We're so happy you wanted to play to learn, as a friendly and fun way to get into our community and mission.  I think these links might be helpful to you as you get started.
::::::* [[WP:TWA/Portal|The Wikipedia Adventure Start Page]]
::::::* [[WP:TWA/Lounge|The Wikipedia Adventure Lounge]]
::::::* [[WP:Teahouse|The Teahouse new editor help space]]
::::::* [[WP:Help|Wikipedia Help pages]]
-- 01:07, Saturday, August 13, 2016 ([[UTC]])
{{Wikipedia:TWA/Navigation2}}

But should be something like;

[[File:TWA guide left bottom.png |left|link=]]
'''Hi [Username]!'''  We're so happy you wanted to play to learn, as a friendly and fun way to get into our community and mission.  I think these links might be helpful to you as you get started.

* [[WP:Help|Wikipedia Help pages]]

if additional indentation is required, the whole thing should be wrapped in a <div>...</div> and styled.

Can this be fixed, please? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:55, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

WVUChe2018 (talk) 04:30, 20 September 2016 (UTC) Added more reliable, neutral info about Earth's history from the talk page

I am not answering this, btw this is a game to teach you many things including neutrality so if it is itself neutral it can't teach you! VarunFEB2003 13:17, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Incorrect statement about reflists in mission 6[edit]

Contrary to what is said in that mission, which is that To make the reference show up, add a REFLIST, references will appear at the bottom of the page even if there is no reflist template since 2014. Pppery 02:27, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Wording[edit]

In Wikipedia:TWA/4/Rephrase: "Earth has many places that are suitable for humans to live, although some areas of the planet can be dangerous for humans or uninhabitable." I feel the end of the sentence isn't good (reads like "humans or uninhabitable" relates to "dangerous"), so maybe something like "can be dangerous for humans, or even uninhabitable", or even drop the "humans", "can be dangerous or uninhabitable". Then again, all three the sentences are kind of odd, and improving just this one could make the difference between them more than just NPOV related.--Yeryry (talk) 11:33, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Adventurers posting at Help talk:Edit summary[edit]

The history of Help talk:Edit summary is littered with edit requests from "Adventurers" who have lost their way. This edit is typical. Is there some wording within the Adventure somewhere that could be tightened up to give better guidance? -- John of Reading (talk) 12:29, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

@John of Reading: I don't know where that one is coming from, but I've added a number of protection notices that override MediaWiki:Protectedpagetext (and the edit request) button. — Andy W. (talk) 19:51, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
@Andy M. Wang: Thank you, that may help. -- John of Reading (talk) 20:04, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
