    Toram Online Wiki

    December 12, 2017 by ThePhoenixGhirl

    Long ago an earthquake, known as the cataclysm, started to pull the world apart. In a hurried attempt, the 12 gods used their power to bring the world back together. However, the world was not the same. After the nations where destroyed the Four Tribes formed four groups.

    900 years later, when monsters start to roam the land, a young adventurer (the player) came to the world. This adventurer would meet many people, go on exciting adventures and fight an unknown evil that is ever-growing behind the scenes

    Toram Online is one of the best mobile MMORPGs available. With stunning graphics, a unique 'skill' system, hundreds of players online 24/7, thousands of different character design options and an intriguing story, it's hard to find a better g…

    Smart Templates: Categories

    December 11, 2017 by Ursuul

    Do you hate manually adding categories to your articles? Do you dislike even bothering with categories at all, but still need them to organize your pages? Sit down, then, because with a bit of work you can make such tasks a thing of the past.

    MediaWiki software has tons of intuitive functions built in to every Wikia that you can use to program your templates to do everything for you. We will look specifically at how they can be used with your templates to make them categorize pages for you.


    The best templates for this are templates that are used on many pages & have many parameters; Infoboxes typically. For example, if you have an Infobox that is used on all pages that are “tanks,” & you are trying to organize tank pages by their rank, then …

    We are all aware of the achievements. You know the badges you get for edits somewhat? It used to be in the wiki features. Now, you have to bribe-I mean ask Staff to enable them. So why should you or should you not use badges?


    • Editor morale - Hence the name, achievements can give one a sense of achievement and a badge can show dedication hence improving the editor's morale.
    • Improved community - If there's a reward, some may want to start editing and it might even be able to grow your wiki.
    • Competition - As opposed to competing for who has the highest editcount, hence causing cheats by userpages, you can have competition for who's on the leaderboard and usually badges are given for mainspace edits.

    • Cheating - Cheating for badges can be an issue …

    Administrators are a group of people who possess power in some shape or size. They may rule over a chat, or perhaps they may rule over a wiki, but they have power in some kind of way. However, if one takes a look at any of the many wikis that have died or became troll infested pits of bubbling, disgusting, revolting trolls, then you'll see not everyone is fit for the role of an Administrator. I am going to discuss a few things that, in my opinion, every Administrator should possess.


    This blog is not in response to any event and is targeted at no individuals. Any individual who takes this as an insult, argument, or trolling can read the disclaimer and move on, or complain in a comment. This blog is to be posted elsewhere besides this particu…

    Hi, you're an admin on a wiki so you would be wondering what do I do about registration? Well, you can't control that. But here's a way that can make you feel like you can...sort of. It's when you enable the feature that requires all contributors to log in, preventing anonymous edits. Here are the advantages and disadvantages of doing so.


    1. Possible way to prevent spam - Anonymous contributors are often associated with spam and vandalism. While this is not always true, some may still get a bit sceptical about anons. And if your wiki is one where a lot of anons do a lot of spam, that can be a way to cut down although it should be noted that registered users can spam as well.
    2. Keeping track of edits - Anons can change their IPs or use VPNs in thi…

    Good afternoon everybody! As some of you might know, I became administrator here on Community Central approximately six months ago. While some of the experiences have been rather daunting, I feel as if I've grown as an individual. Therefore, I would like to share some of the ideas I've picked up thus far!


    The first thing I would like to address is the question people, typically newer users, ask me whenever they first send me a message. The question is "what is being admin like?".
    It took me a few weeks to fully contemplate the answer, because in all honesty, being an admin is more than just a shiny star and tons of new tools. For me, the meaning roots far deeper than that. Prior to being administrator, I was a semi-veteran user who happened …

    On wikis, people are free to collaborate but sometimes edits can be unnecessary to say the least. However, while the person may have done an unnecessary edit, that does not exactly mean they did a bad thing. Here are examples of criteria for what makes an edit just an unnecessary edit and what makes one actual vandalism/spam.


    • A small removal of something that they may think is unnecessary but actually is. Removing necessary information is not necessarily vandalism. Vandalism is when it's done deliberately to be a jerk.
    • A misunderstood undo can also count as one. Even I recently made one but please don't take that as me acting in bad faith especially considering I undid the edit. Undoing an edit can be a mistake in some cases or just a disagr…

    In a couple of my previous blogs, I wrote about the negative effects about harassment and vandalism, and in this one I will be tackling yet another prominent issue. Specifically, sockpuppetry.


    Sockpuppetry, also simply known as socking, is the act of using multiple accounts for malicious and/or deceiving purposes, often to evade blocks and troll. It also includes the act of disguising as another person as a means to hide real identity, often through the help of VPNs and usage of relatives, friends, or affiliates' devices.


    Often because their account on a certain wiki is blocked or banned from chat and they are impatient to wait it out, so they decide to circumvent the block/ban through usage of another account.


    Because it is very disruptive to…
