No, I just found it while I was looking for things. Also the code for the template is RZR0's, not Artsja's.

Also, shouldn't Unleashed and Unhinged be at the top?

Using a sprite sheet (one image that contains multiple icons, which are split up for display) reduces server load. Rather than 12 separate http requests for 12 separate images, a user will load the image once, and the appropriate sections will be displayed as defined by the code. They use this method on the Minecraft wiki for their nav boxes, because of all the icons that would otherwise have to be loaded individually. The downside, as you've seen, is that the code is more obscure. Also, if you're not careful about how updates to the sprite sheet are made, everything will derp up when reviewing page histories.

I'll update the button sprites in a bit, but my workload atm is rather insane. As for the whole debate on whether we should document vanilla stuff... Personally I really don't have a problem with that, going on the idea of looking at FTB as a separate entity from Minecraft/providing complete documentation for the entire experience. However, given that it's well documented on mcwiki and there's still a lot of documentation missing with all of the new mods and updates, I think we should focus on that first.

That makes sense.

Seems straightforward enough, when I find the time I can do it.

Exactly, and we can link with a see more to the mcwiki

Unleashed and Unhinged are the main FTB packs, just like Ultimate was.

If you haven't been following the news, Unleashed, Unhinged, and Direwolf20 1.5 are the main mod packs. Ultimate and Direwolf20 1.4 have been "discontinued" since RedPower isn't being updated, as have the 152 betas.

I can never follow just what is or isn't whatever main is...

Woah woah woah woah wait...

What do you mean Redpower is discontinued?!

I thought the author was just taking a break while they went to the hospital or something horribly dramatic like that?!

Here's the thing: no one really knows what the deal is with RedPower. Eloraam went missing, so to speak, for a long while, resurfaced and sent out a bunch of tweets basically telling people to be patient in both February, April and June. Other than that, there's been no news, no 1.5 port, nothing. It's possible that it's just going to take forever, and it's also possible that Eloraam has quietly decided to drop RedPower, and it's also possible that Eloraam has no time to update it. No one knows.

No one said Redpower was discontinued, Kahless61 said the old 1.4 packs were discontinued.

It is highly likely that this is a lost in translation error.

I'm confused. How could one phrase that statement ("both A, B and C") better? Also, by "lost in translation" are you implying that English is not my first language?

It sounds better to my ear just to drop the 'both', since 'both' is used to talk about exactly 2 things. Google's definition: "used before the first of two alternatives to emphasize that the statement being made applies to each".

As with what tim said, both means that there are two things, no more, no less.

For you to not have known that I assumed that English was not your first language, yes.

I didn't realize. Thank you for educating me.

 

English is indeed my first language. I strive for the best grammar possible but don't always succeed. I don't doubt that there would be many others who are capable of making the same, or similar, mistakes that I have made in the past.
