If you want to just upload the file and let us take care of it, we'd be happy to help! Otherwise:

1. Upload the file.
1a. On the upload page, put [[Category:Invention Costume Images]] in the text box.
2. Go to the pages you want to display the image and update it in the syntax already there for the placeholder, just replace the file name.

Hmm.  There may be an issue with uploading at the moment.  I just tried uploading an image and got an error.

Quote
Internal error
From Paragon Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The upload directory (public) is not writable by the webserver.

I wonder if Tony forgot to flip a switch after the MediaWiki update.

Edit: Tried from the O-portal just for fun.  Got the same error.

Edit 2:  The last upload in the log was on June 27, prior to the upgrade.

Sekoia found a user/group permissions issue and fixed it.  Uploading files appears to be working again.

Trust me on this.  ;)

Frequently after I put some raw information up or do some editing, Aggelakis is right behind me.  He is often reformatting, tweaking layouts, cropping pics, putting in templates to make things cleaner, and editing the article so it follows the format/guidelines of the rest of the wiki.

The wiki's an awesome community resource and the more CoH community members that help keep it maintained by contributing the odd little correction, addendum, link to guides/posts on the forums or missing pic, the better it gets.  :)

Ever since I9 with the invention system, I've had the wiki in my browser tabs for quick referral while playing.  CoH has gotten so BIG that even though I've been playing since the early beta, I'm still occasionally stumped by questions some player or other will ask me.  Thankfully, I've got the wiki.  :)

Et tu?  He did that to me tonight as well.  It's like being stalked... O_o

I think Agg has a little custom HTML file that auto-refreshes the Recent Changes inside an embedded frame every five seconds or so.  :)

(Actually, I did think about doing something like that.)

Naw, my bookmark for the wiki goes to Special:RecentChanges, and I click it anytime there's a lag in interesting stuff happening on my monitor. :D

Considering I'm picking up WoW again for a short time (minor CoX burnout), there's a lot of that. (Walking, riding, or flying everywhere is so much fun! *cough cough* Sorry, what was I saying? Got some sarcasm stuck in the throat.)

Agge rocks.  It's why I started the Aggelakis fan club.

Curing burnout by setting oneself on fire... Yeah, let us know how that works out for you. ^_-

I like WoW in small doses, my City burnouts generally only last a month or two. :)

Hi, thanks for the welcome Aggelakis. I didn't know how to reply back yet through the wiki userboxes thingy. :P

After reading this section of the forum and seeing that there was just a little bit of info on the Barracuda SF page, I added what I could. I know there was already a picture of Barracuda there but I thought it would be nice to add the actual screenie of her there. I went by the picture and could not find her. I saw the coordinates but, honestly, I'm not good with numbers. :P

And I've never used the /loc command, so I was still lost when trying to find her. :(
I asked in broadcast and the Protector Watch channel if anyone could tell me where exactly she was but all I got was "cricket" noises.  :-\

I ramble. Thanks again! I have a few projects on my plate and a 2-2.5 month vacation, so not sure how much I will be able to contribute. Hopefully, I didn't break anything. :P

Thanks again for the welcome and the useful wiki-know-how links!
