Love it!

I absolutely love Calvin and Hobbes, so having a Wiki for it rocks! Whoever thought of it... You rock to!!! LeiaOrganicSolo 23:43, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

                 Yes, quite the snazzy wiki! I never realized there were quite so many Spaceman Spiff planets... :P Thomas of Tortuga (talk) 05:26, April 13, 2014 (UTC)

New skin

Hi!

Several months ago, Wikia released a new site skin called Monaco. The new skin features tools which make it much easier for visitors to find content and edit it. You can read all about Monaco here. As you can read on that page, while you will still be able to select Monobook (this wiki's current default skin) as the skin you personally use to view the site (via Special:Preferences), we are no longer able to support Monobook as a default skin for anonymous visitors. So, we need to change the default skin to Monaco.

There are a number of pre-built themes for Monaco. Check out how the homepage looks in Sapphire, Jade, Slate, Smoke, Beach, and Brick, and let me know which one you like best. In addition to those pre-built themes, you can build your own custom themes as well. Check out the custom themes on the Shaiya Wiki and the Diablo Wiki. You can learn about customizing the theme, menus and other aspects of Monaco here.

Take a look at that information, and let me know which theme you think might work best. We need to change the skin by Friday, October 31st, so I am here to make that transition as easy as possible. Let me know if you have any questions, or if I can help in any way.

Thanks! --KyleH (talk) 18:34, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

New box

I created a book box (a slightly tweaked version of the character box) for books. It works exactly like the character box, except that the first and last dates now apply to the first and last strips in the mentioned book. Enjoy.

Update

Just now, I added a sabbatical section, which is specified by typing in " | sabb=" and then either "First," "Last," or "None", i.e.: "{{book box | pic=The Days are Just Packed.png | first=[[April 11]], [[1991]] | last=[[November 8]], [[1992]] | sabb=First}}" makes

The Days are Just Packed.png
First comic: April 11, 1991

New template

If you have a template on your image page that looks like this

, then you have to edit the page. After you click edit, you should see "{{Self}}" somewhere near the bottom. Move your typing bar inside of it, between "Self" and the closing braces (}}), and type " | uname=(your username with correct capitalization.)". i.e. "{{Self | uname=Brovie}}" makes

New Userbox

I made a "favorite strip" box. Here is how to use it. First, type in "{{User:Brovie/Box:Favestrip" and then type in " | favestrip=(name of picture without "Image:" prefix)}}" i.e. "{{User:Brovie/Box:Favestrip | favestrip=C&H Trains, Planes, 'n' Tectonic Plates.jpg}}" makes

(note that it only works with internal links; I'll fix that later.)

recent changes in character page

Hi, I had to ban at least 2 or 3 people for putting innap. stuff in the characters page.They changed original clones to original dopes and moe to marihuana or something. The page is considered major and since many contributors and unregistered users have been changing it, it is now protected for users only. thankyou, good day.

This is the new spotlight for The Calvin and Hobbes Wiki. I believe this is a great achievement for our community, and we should continue to keep it worthy of this prestigious recognition!
