It's been a long while since the last time I helped setup that slider for a wiki, but if you need it, I can help out sometime this week.
This is about the Scan2Go Wikia site and the individual episode articles. I'm wondering if the following idea is possible and if so, how / what is the best method to implement it.
I'd like to provide a way to allow people to rate an individual episode and report at leat the average rating. Other websites following various TV series (e.g. TV Guide, TV.com, DirectTV, etc) allow people to rate an episode. Some sites use stars, while others use actual numbers. An example of numbers is TV.com, which allows people to vote at the .5 (1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, etc) and then provides both the number of votes and the average. (NOTE: TV.com used to use an increment value of .1, but changed to .5).
Initially I thought about creating a poll using stars or numbers, but I can't see a method to average out the score, which IMHO is very important. Seeing a bunch of votes won't help people, as they want a single number (for the most part). Some people would not mind seeing how many 10, 9.5, 9.0 votes there were or how many stars (1, 2, 3, 4, or 5) there were. An EXAMPLE of a site showing BOTH is Amazon.com for both items and TV series. You can see the overall average and how many people voted for each choice (1, 2, etc stars).
I'm hoping this is possible. If it is NOT possible:
1) Is something close to it possible?
2) If nothing is possible, can we propose, recommend, promote the idea .... assuming you like it or think it is worth trying to add to wikia.
Obviously, you'll need to replace "Primary caption" and "Secondary caption", and you'll want to fill in link= with the page being featured. Note that you do not need the usual double brackets with the slider. So for example, if you wanted to feature the Player Ideas page, that would simply be link=Player Ideas.
Let me know what else you'd like me to help with on the main page.
I made a test page on my sandbox wiki. Take a look and tell me what you think.
The heading is using a Google web font (Michroma), which has sort of a sci-fi style. The advantage of using a web font is that you can have custom headings that are as easy to edit and/or create as headings using plain text, because that's actually what you're doing - using text but displaying it as a custom font that everyone will see, regardless of whether or not the user has the font installed on their computer.
