    I thought being an oldbie meant that you were part of the scene before the creation of the S2Beta page.

    Because ageism is entrenched within our fine Sonic Retro society? Longevity implies reliability, and reliability makes for the good editin'.

    It's not something which requires much fretting about, Volpino; few oldbies edit the wiki with any kind of regularity or verve anyway, so you won't find them utilising their 1337 Usergroup Powerz to oppress the small, defenceless Members.

    The only thing that I've missed while editing was move pages around, because I'm always putting a letter where it shouldn't or forgetting to add g on png. The table looks balanced to me and I'm sure that giving move to normal members would probably give more grief than benefict. Just put {{move}} on the beginning of the page. Speaking about that, can't that template have something like the ones for images to be replaced, like {{replace|reason=blah blah}}?

    What do you mean; you just want a "Reason" field to be able to fill in on the Move Page template?

    Does this mean there will never be any 'new' oldbies? I mean, I only got here in 2004 so....>_>

    The criteria for oldbies is definitively set in stone. If you make it a relative achievement, this means that every member will inevitably get the rank, making it redundant.

    <!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    Yes, it saves time and space, for both move and now that I think of it, remove (who knows what else). The reasons are given without editing a new talk page (most of the time), and the sysops don't have to scratch their heads wondering why should it moved when there's no reason in the talk page involved. Once the action is done, it's only needed to delete the template line of the article. It's an easy thing to implement (two lines I think) but the sysops/admins might prefer an explanation in the talk page instead of explained in the article (I suppose it'd look more professional), so that's why I'm asking if that modification is possible.

    The move template needs rewritten anyway. Look at the image replace template and modify it to your needs.

    (Bringing the topic back to the table in the first post...) You may want to split the 'Upload' row into two headings; Under 5MB and Over 5MB.

    The reason it deserves clarification is that, as I found out when I messaged Frozen Nitrogen about an MP3 upload, <I>even a Wiki Sysop can't circumvent this limit</I>. Only the root-level Administrators have the rights.

    Could you convert the template to the Imagetag format used in the Replace template? It'd help if these kinds of templates were all uniform.
