Are editnotices supported on wikia? I have been reading about them on Wikipedia here. It seems like they are a feature of MediaWiki, but I tried to create a user editnotice and namespace editnotice with no success. Is there something that gets MediaWiki to "turn on" the editnotices? --Pagoda 20:08, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Hrm, it doesn't look like an extention, but I don't see any way to put it on a Wikia wiki. Anybody know? -- RandomTime 20:18, August 25, 2010 (UTC)
Namespace editnotice is part of MediaWiki since version 1.14, and in fact it is working on your wiki. Since you chose namespace 0, edit any mainspace article to see it (I do) - it won't be visible on pages that are not in mainspace. --◄mendel► 20:22, August 25, 2010 (UTC)
Aah, so it is there, I've just not seen it -- RandomTime 20:41, August 25, 2010 (UTC)
I see the one on the main namespace now! I must have just refreshed the page too early or something. I still do not see the one for my userpage. --Pagoda 22:48, August 25, 2010 (UTC)
Can anyone shed some light on how MediaWiki implements this feature? I've done some searching, but haven't found any real answers. The Wikipedia article linked above references many templates, which don't exist by default in MediaWiki. Obviously for each namespace the MediaWiki:Editnotice-X page is used, but if I wanted to customize things further how would I do that? I'd like the ability to specify editnotice based on article title. --Pagoda 02:11, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
I do not know about specific pages, but the table is showing up on your DragonQuest pages when you edit them ( since it is name-space 0 ). -- (M o r p h | C | T) 496 contributions and counting. 04:16, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
The format for individual pages is MediaWiki:Editnotice-#-Page. Max21 17:30, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

I've created The Sims Wiki:Help:Editnotice. This is a local help page, but it could be used as inspiration to create a global one or for other wikis to customize their own. Duskey(talk) 16:29, September 1, 2010 (UTC)
