Link templates Edit

I was thinking we should make the icon templates link to the game-specific pages instead of the disambig (templates H, M, A, D, W). If possible, we could make the templates automatically link to the game-specific pages based on the infobox they're used in (since those templates are mostly used in infoboxes, like {{OblivionSpells}}).

Another method would be to pipe the templates (like {{M|Oblivion}}), which shouldn't take too long to do since they're mostly used in templates. --Shockstorm (talk) 00:57, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

I agree that linking to disambig pages is a bit silly. I also hate templates you have to provide games as arguments. I'm hoping there might be some neat way of automating this process without having to stray too far from the simplicity of smacking {{w}} into some article. Our biggest challenge here is detecting what game this is for. I'm hoping lua has some way of setting a global variable for a page that can make the template identify what game it is being used for. I'll be sandboxing this idea for a while before deciding on what approach to take. — Flightmare @Wikia (talk) 14:03, May 1, 2016 (UTC)

Portable infoboxes Edit

Hey Flight, is there a way to keep the "Have an image of <name>? Then please upload it!" on infoboxes that have been updated to the portable format? For example on {{MorrowindIngredients}}, if an article doesn't have an image (such as this), it doesn't have that message. Since it's something that's usually on infoboxes to encourage users to upload images, it would be good if the new infoboxes had them too. —Atvelonis (talk) 19:04, May 6, 2016 (UTC)

Yes there is, looks like I forgot to add it to ingredients though. — Flightmare @Wikia (talk) 20:25, May 6, 2016 (UTC)

KINMUNE was down last night Edit

Just thought I'd mention KINMUNE was down around 2 AM last night. I don't know if it was something wrong with the AI, an Update to the AI, ECT... Anyways. Just wanted to make sure it was taken care of, to prevent further issues. What is the Music of Life? (talk) 01:43, May 20, 2016 (UTC)

I tested something new, it wasn't a big success. — Flightmare @Wikia (talk) 10:45, May 20, 2016 (UTC)

EditingEdit

Hi, Flightmare

I'm having a Major Problem with the Editing. So I was doing work on the Location Differences in Elder Scrolls Online article. I was adding a ton of locations pretty much a Major of the Locations featured in Hammerfell in ESO which has a Lot of Places.  After finishing, for some reason everytime I finish editing and write what changes I made, the Screen would refresh and go into to Source Editor since I use Visual Editor and after it refreshes, All of my work is gone. It's pretty annoying and I need it to stop. I know using Source Editor is better but I'm just comfortable using Visual Editor and frankly, it shouldn't reboot to Source Editor only to get rid of my edits. Please fix it. Thanks for Reading. Vincentius1 (talk) 00:26, June 7, 2016 (UTC)

Revert Edit

Can you use that revert thingy on X-Mutant when you get a chance? Also blocking him would be nice, because he's continuing to add stuff as I type this... I know he can see the messages on his talk page, because he launched some drama towards Atv several months ago (which included him removing lots of messages as well). --Shockstorm (talk) 06:26, June 7, 2016 (UTC)

/D user ban Edit

Hey Flight,

Kun jij misschien even TheBigOne2206 een block van 3 dagen geven voor het spammen van de Discussions? Atvelonis reageert niet en je bent nog niet in de chat geweest vandaag, dus daarom vraag ik het via je talkpage. CarloV3r (talk) 14:10, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

Looks like Atvelonis took care of it already. — Flightmare @Wikia (talk) 08:35, June 20, 2016 (UTC)

Unsigned issue With Blood Dragon Edit

User:Cook_Me_Plox brought this to our attention, me and Kora tested it, it's odd.... It only appears whilst not signed in, on Blood Dragon, It links to Mythology.wikia.com and it does not appear in either source edit or Visual edit which is even weirder, it's in the section Appearance, and on the Word "Dragon" it links to Http://Mythology.wikia.com ... Kora suggested I left a message to you. Thanks TAOA 05:08, July 1, 2016 (UTC)

It looks very odd indeed, I see it too when not logged in. I'll ask around if someone knows what this is. — Flightmare @Wikia (talk) 11:58, July 1, 2016 (UTC)
We just discovered.... It happens at other wikis too. Assassin's creed, Terraria wiki, Dragon Age Wiki, And Fallout wiki.... Don't know why... Perhaps it has to do with the word itself? Perhaps Mythology.wiki did something? IDK... TAOA 00:13, July 2, 2016 (UTC)
Not all pages with the word "dragon" has it, and sometimes it's on the title of an infobox instead of a word in the article body... The Weirdness goes deep!   RenzXVI // Message // Chat // 00:26, Sat 2 July 2016 (UTC)  

I just found that it happens on new edits for some reason... http://fallout-tes.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Test, Click on the last edit. I messed up on the name, But it apparently has to do with the word. TAOA 00:41, July 2, 2016 (UTC)

Just found this as well... It even happens at non-existent pages... http://fallout-tes.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Test_(non-existent_page) I have no idea what is happening.. TAOA 00:46, July 2, 2016 (UTC)
Solved! http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Nerfmaster8/Pointless_%22SEO%22_Injection   RenzXVI // Message // Chat // 04:33, Sat 2 July 2016 (UTC)  
Circumvented by inserting <span></span> into the word, such as dra<span></span>gon. Someone on RS Wiki wrote a module to handle it, but be warned, the function names are very profane! — TheDefiant604 (talk • contribs) 04:53, July 2, 2016 (UTC)

KINMUNE youtube spam 2 Edit

Someone used KINMUNE to spam again... At first she tried to use The Aspect of Akatosh's youtube link but it didn't work, then she posted a different new link so she knew what she was doing. Time = 01:56:34 in the log   RenzXVI // Message // Chat // 02:28, Sat 9 July 2016 (UTC)  

Re: /d guidelines Edit

Thanks for the heads up. I've formatted our existing guidelines for that page now. —Atvelonis (talk) 19:45, July 12, 2016 (UTC)

Lore character infobox Edit

I just made {{LoreCharacters}} because the existing templates weren't so great. We need to choose a styling for that (I just used "lore", although that probably doesn't exist atm). Alternately we could base the styling on the character's race, like I believe they were trying to do with {{Imperial infobox}}. Also feel free to add fields from this template if needed — I think the "faction" field should suffice for most things, although we may want a separate field for dynasties and bloodlines. You're much better with that stuff than I am, so any help you can give is much appreciated.

And oh yeah, how's the connect thing going? Was wondering what it might be like in August. --Shockstorm (talk) 03:23, July 14, 2016 (UTC)

Removing Upload Option on Forum Posts Edit

Some time last week, I think it was, a user uploaded multiple images solely for forum posts. Despite being informed it was a violation of policies, he continued to do it. The last time, another user also told him it was against policy. He claimed ignorance and then asked why there was an upload option when posting to forums. I couldn't help but agree: why is there such a contradiction of both the media and forum policies?

RenzXVI found the solution. Add the following code to the MediaWiki:Wikia.css file:

.MiniEditorWrapper .toolbar .cke_button.cke_button_big > a {
	background-color: transparent;
	display: none;
}

This "fix" will hide the upload section on both the add image and add video boxes for forum posts.

Oblivion Jewelry Infoboxes Edit

Hey, je moet even naar een aantal infoboxes van Oblivion Jewelry articles kijken. Ik weet niet of de infoboxes er zo uit horen te zien, maar volgens mij zijn ze kapot.

Book templates Edit

Hey, we started a conversation with Shockstorm about changes in the gallery template at Online Books. He told about a bot, that is updating pages. I saw today, a bot has made changes in many articles, but not all. E.g. Fang of the Sea Vipers, Spikeball Handbill. So, question is: will a bot continue to work or will gonna have to edit articles manually?--Vitgar (talk) 13:45, July 26, 2016 (UTC)

The bot task is already finished, I simply did not know there were pages formatted like this so they weren't included. So feel free to update the page. — Flightmare @Wikia (talk) 14:28, July 26, 2016 (UTC)
Ha.... Feel free... Sad to hear so much my work was done in vain and is need to repair just because of the template changes.  Vitgar (talk) 16:14, July 26, 2016 (UTC)
It was not done in vain, I encourage you to keep searching for broken articles and report them back to me. It is pretty hard to find all exceptions out of 2400 articles. — Flightmare @Wikia (talk) 16:53, July 26, 2016 (UTC)
