I saw you changed some of the personal prize unlock quests to "collect Festive Hats and Unlock X"  But the in-game text is just "Collect Festive Hats" and the value. I've actually never seen the game say "unlock"  So we are purposely not using in-game display on quest objects if is makes it clearer?  Should I continue to just follow in-game display and let you modify it where desired?

You mentioned in a commit post you were putting the infobox for a building to standard.  Which means there is a standard, just not out there, unless it is on some sandbox.  I've got a guideline I've put together from looking at recent pages, but having an actual one instead of guessing would me less rework.  (and on that note, the standard layout' infobox when you create a new page has a crazy order, image way after row 5, which is why I find it there a lot.)

I combined a bunch of the tutorial quests for the winter event into [[Gonna Find Out Who's Naughty or Nice]] before I saw there were 4 "The White Elephant in the Room" quests.  I can correct it to whichever way to go, just need to know what is desired.  I can rename the page to White Elephant, since that means 4 chain task is the main part, with a 2part pre-bit, and a single part at the end, or I can break White Elephant into a separate page.  Or break them all out into 3 pages (but that means very small quest pages, which I think we are trying to avoid doing too much of.)  Or leave it the way it is, I guess.  If I'd known about White Elephant pp.3-4, I would have named the page after that quest to begin with.

I feel like I'm groping in the dark, not know what I'm doing wrong till I see it corrected. 3-4 separate things, but all boiling down to I like to do things right first time, just trying to get the rules.

I've uploaded images, trying to follow examples I've seen, and I see now I should not have been doing via the page I'm editing, but separately, with a {{MI}}, which you just have to know about.  Editing standards page doesn't have anything on how to name files, what templates to use or anything, and I don't know enough to without searching through all the unknown type templates, or what I'd be looking for when doing so. I feel like there probably is something similar for dialogue Icons. and I've not been putting "Snow Menu" for all the winter buildings and Icons I've uploaded images for.  No idea that was there, since I haven't really seen any kind of standards page, so that's a lot of going back and renaming images (if that's even possible), and putting in the MI description stuff for those images, and quite possibly something for the dialogue images (Almost should be, since digging through the photo search gets old, unless there is another trick I don't know).  Kinda want to know the rules before I go make a pass over all the pages I've done, so I'm correcting them the right way, once.

I saw you changed some of the personal prize unlock quests to "collect Festive Hats and Unlock X"  But the in-game text is just "Collect Festive Hats" and the value. I've actually never seen the game say "unlock"  So we are purposely not using in-game display on quest objects if is makes it clearer?  Should I continue to just follow in-game display and let you modify it where desired?

I know responding to this takes up your editing time, but if I've got better guidelines, hopefully my contributions will be more helpful, and end result should make things easier for you in the long run.
