Do templates count?

Do, by any chance, templates count? While I'm good at writing fiction I'm not good at writing for wikis. Most of my edits at other wikis are gnome edits or Templates. Oh, and CSS. But this wiki doesn't really need CSS at the moment. Catuse167 00:43, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

YES (and I will add that to the Wikiwrimowrimo main page). Templates have been the bane of my wiki existence for as long as this site has existed. I might love you forever if you worked up some template action for this site. If you come up with any neat CSS ideas, let me know since I'm also pretty bad at that (bad web admin, I know--and I also run a WordPress site!). -Sushimustwrite 04:27, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Too easy?

I dunno, an edit a day isn't much because of small-time edits. While writing whole pages could be tricky, I dunno... this seems to be too easy for me, because that's how I edit a lot. Maybe I'm just an overachiever. Catuse167 06:06, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

You probably have more edits than I do this month. I thought about how to make the challenge more of a, well, challenge, but since I couldn't come up with anything more than a few months in advance Wikiwrimowrimo stayed as is. The main challenge, as with Nano, is to remember to edit every day (or to do it in spurts like I've been doing--I'll fall behind if I don't do some editing in the next few days). Oh, and to remember that it's 30 articles, not 29. If you have any ideas to make the next one more challenging I'll gladly take them. -Sushimustwrite 18:50, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
I dunno. Maybe count minor edits as half a point? Then again, it wouldn't be Office of Letters and Light-style without people complaining about how easy it is. Catuse167 01:28, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
