What are you trying to do, Mr. Z? I do not understand exactly what you are attempting to do. -Yoshit

I think he's trying to put all the pictures that have been on the main page of the Chewiki on one place. Although I don't understand why the Transformers picture is on there. - Crazy Luigi 17:17, 3 June 2010 (CDT)
I'm trying to make a template that rotates the main image on Chewiki's front page. Of course, I stopped editing because I went to sleep for whatever reason. I'm just trying to figure out why it won't show up when I try placing it. As for the rave and Cory Baxter? Well, I tried adding two new ones and they were just placeholders. By the way, I got the idea from how the Homestar Runner wiki has a rotation for the captions on Homsar and Senor Cardgage's articles. The coding on theirs works, so this should... it's probably just the fact that it's pictures. Mebbe PSE'd know what to do, since to be quite honest I've got no idea what I'm doing. --NinjaCoachZ 17:18, 3 June 2010 (CDT)
Maybe you could e-mail him about this since he seems to have stopped editing here for whatever reason. Also, not to be on the self-promotion side of things, but I think I have a picture that could work for your thing right here. - Crazy Luigi 17:26, 3 June 2010 (CDT)
I'm open to suggestions. --NinjaCoachZ 17:32, 3 June 2010 (CDT)
For the pictures? If so, then about this one because "WHAT'CHA GONNA DO WHEN THE HULKSTER'S 26-INCH PYTHONS COME RUNNIN' TOWARDS YOU?!" or this one because... well, it's self-explanatory. - Crazy Luigi 17:45, 3 June 2010 (CDT)
Sure. Those could work. Anyway, since PSE doesn't seem to go to the forums that much either, I went to Wikihow and left him a message there. --NinjaCoachZ 17:50, 3 June 2010 (CDT)
I've tried everything and it won't work. Curse my lack of template knowledge. Let's just wait for a reply. --NinjaCoachZ 18:28, 3 June 2010 (CDT)
While we're waiting, I request one more picture since I don't want to see Love Potion #9 become the magic number for images: this picture right here. - Crazy Luigi 19:41, 3 June 2010 (CDT)
Well, I managed to get a system that switches the images depending on what second it is.

The problem? The page has to be purged to get a different result every time. This is going to be a bit trickier than I thought. - PSE1nf0
Maybe there can be a way for the template to automatically purge the page. And weclome back, soldier. --NinjaCoachZ 14:37, 7 June 2010 (CDT)
Yeah, it sort of felt empty here without you for some strange reason. Glad to see you again, and good luck on the future. - Crazy Luigi 16:40, 8 June 2010 (CDT)

Though it's imperfect, at the moment I'm loving this template. Where's a "thumbs-up" smiley when you need one? --NinjaCoachZ 22:30, 14 June 2010 (CDT)

Can this work? - Crazy Luigi 22:43, 14 June 2010 (CDT)
That's it. --NinjaCoachZ 22:46, 14 June 2010 (CDT)

Image count

Okay, I think we've gotten enough pictures to represent the Chewiki. We should probably block it now before someone else adds a new picture here.

Crazy Luigi nailed it on the head. I was thinking that 20 at maximum would be good. From now on, I'll protect the template, and changes to it will have to be discussed. Catfish Capiche? --NinjaCoachZ 18:21, 24 July 2010 (CDT)

How about this one?happydeath20 19:10, 27 September 2010 (CDT)
Okay, first of all, I vote for no on that picture due to you spamming it. Second, even if the answer's yes to the rest of the Chewiki, we still need to vote for what picture has to be removed if we want to put it on here. - Crazy Luigi 19:18, 27 September 2010 (CDT)
You make a very good point, I have looked at all the choices and the only one that seems out of place to me is the Hillary Yoshi image.happydeath20 16:06, 29 September 2010 (CDT)
