Hello. I've recently been appointed an admin on an (internet) friend's new wiki where I've been trying to help out (as I'm the one with the most wiki experience - in fact, I'm the one who got her into the wiki community in the first place) and I have some editing questions. I've already asked about this on the forums, thought I had the answer, but now I'm not so sure.
What I want to do, is be able to edit this template, and any infobox in general, so that users can change the background and heading colors as they see fit, while leaving the format the same. Take a look at the infoboxes on these twopages, and you'll see what I mean. It's all the same template, FanCharBox, but you get to change the colors cause there's actual spaces labeled "Background", "FontColor", and "Border".
Unfortunately, I have absolutely no experience with Infobox Builder source (I assume it's CSS) editing, only the original source editing. I have literally tromped all over the community wiki help pages looking for an answer, and haven't found one. At least, a straight one. What I need a thorough explaination of this stuff, otherwise I'll get lost sooner or later and just be more confused than before, like I am now.
In other words, I either need a way to convert the CSS code to source code while keeping the same format, or I need the CSS code that would allow people to change the colors of the template. A thorough explantion on how to do enable this would be great, as well. Do we have to put it in here first? If so, how does it go in? Or do we just put the code in for each template we want this for?
And... *takes a deep breath* I think that's it. I may have more questions once you respond, though. And maybe I didn't need to put in so many details, but I did anyway. *gives a tired grin*

I have not, I was directed to post on the wall first, but I'll do that. Thanks.
Hey Tim, a week ago I sent you a question in your Skype account, but since you didn't reply it I'm making the same question here, since here you'll see it for sure :P
"Hey Tim, sorry to bother you but I just want to know, once I got better from all this medical crisis, if I have to apply once again for the VSTF status or if my old experience as VSF will help me get the status back ASAP."
Hope you answer this question soon, since I'll have to go back to the hospital tomorrow.
I'm pinging you because you (or a bot using your name) posted to my talk page on venturebros.wikia.com after I edited the admin's talk page. You're also listed as tech support, so you might be the person I need anyway.
I'm the bureaucrat for venturebrothers.wikia.com. A more active community, that has seen an up-serge in posts since a new season just started. We're looking to absorb the now-defunct venturebros wikia, as well as see if we can get a redirect from theventurebrothers.wikia.com (or even change the community to include "the" in the title, as that's the official title of the show.
Do you have any thoughts on how to get all three "venturebros," "venturebothers," and "theventurebrothers" to all point to the same community, which I've been working to build?
Hi, I'm so sorry if this is the wrong place, but we noticed that your account blocked nearly everything on our wiki, Hypothetical Hurricanes Wiki? From our knowledge, we didn't do anything that warrented the block. So, I'm wondering: Why exactly did you lock it? Is there a reason behind why it was blocked? Basically, please provide us more information as to why you locked it, and will it be unlocked?
I looked at a couple pages, but they don't seem to be locked at all. I can edit them just fine. Is it different for you? And even if they were, are you not an admin? Couldn't you just get rid of the protection on them?
