Gilgamesh: Enough expository banter!
This talk page is used for discussing improvements to the page "Sector 7". It is not the place for general discussion or sharing stories about the topic of this article.

Possible rewrite neededEdit

This article is misleading. There are actully 2 sections to every sector. Slums and plate. While Tifa's bar is in the slums half, Denzel lived on the plate part. This article suggests Section 7 is only part of the slums.

Links Edit

How do I link to the specific years in the FFVII timeline? I assume it doesn't work because of the Greek characters?Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 08:39, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

It's actually the square brackets that do it. So there a number of fixes:
  • [[Final Fantasy VII/Timeline#.5B μ .5D – εуλ 1992|1992]]
  • We make a template to use in these instancesthat automatically replaces "[" and "]" with ".5B" and ".5D", a la: [[Final Fantasy VII/Timeline#{{#replace:{{#replace:[ μ ] – εуλ 1992|[|.5B}}|]|.5D}}|1992]].
  • We stop using square brackets in the page headers and change them to "μ - εуλ 1992".
  • We add {{A}}s to the page headers so "#μ - εуλ 1992" works, or something like that (I also think we should change "–" to "-"-- they look mostly the same, so it's best to use a key actually on people's keyboards). JBed (talk) 12:53, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
Well the Greek characters aren't on people's keyboards either... :) But "–" might indeed be a bit deceiving. I don't know where this weird nomenclature is from but I assume the Ultimania. Put {{A}} around the years in the timeline, then no one needs to use any niche characters?Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 14:45, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
That would work. Well if we don't bother to state which 2k year cycle it is in. We use MediaWiki:Edittools (found under more+) to add less frequent characters like Omega. (Also Timeline needs to cite its sources, and using TLS as a source isn't good enough) JBed (talk) 18:03, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
