Some of you might notice that the infobox templates at the top right corner of articles are starting to look a little different than they used to. This blog post will explain why and what has changed.
IN SHORT: Infobox templates have been migrated from their old coding to the new portable coding in order to be compatible with all Internet-capable devices (including mobile phones).
When I undertook this project a couple weeks ago, I made it my goal to keep our infoboxes very close in format/style to the old infoboxes. This required extensive trial & error as well as a lot of learning because I have no background in CSS coding and only knew enough to get by.
All of the original content is still there. This includes not just the information on t…

In response to recent situations with suspected sockpuppeting and ban-evasions, I felt it necessary to create this blog as a means of warning future offenders and alerting anyone who may be unclear as to the rules or definition of the term "sockpuppeting". Please take the time to peruse this blog post.
Sockpuppeting is an Internet term for the creation of numerous accounts by the same user, particularly after the original account was blocked by an administrator. This is a form of ban-evasion, the act of attempting to access registered user status after having been blocked.
