Hey Bert. I just saw the Help:Discussions FAQ page and I was wondering if I could ask some questions over on the community discord server? Namely related to scripting and some other stuff. If not possible on the community discord, I can ask on here. :)
That is a good point, although most of the users in the Discord server are the power users who would be more interested in these particular questions than others :p
Main questions are:
Will Discussions allow JS scripts, such as those that can be done in the current forums? This is a make-or-break for me: being able to extend the /d system with things like ArchiveBoards or ThreadIndicator would really help with improving /d for Desktop-based users, unless there's an intention to introduce these scripts as core features?
When will we see a better desktop skin for /d? It looks more like a mix of a facebook and twitter, too narrow. More use of the space and columns would be better, ideally a better "index page" should be presented to desktop users, rather than just a list of popular topics (important for Narutopedia, where "popular topics" on the forums are not necessarily ones we want users to just keep posting in).
Will /d include an ability to "highlight" important discussions in some way? One of the benefits of special:forum is that they're a drop-in replacement of wiki-style forums and have extra benefits (highlighting important discussions for others), but /d does not appear to have this functionality yet.
Is there any possibility of including wikitext? On Narutopedia, we regularly use wikitext for formatting, as well as transcluding notice templates that can be posted into threads (eg when people double post or pyramid quote) and not being able to use these features will severely hamper the moderators from doing their duty to the wiki.
Hello, my friend create a wikia that should not exist. As he says: ( http://elerio.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:87 ) Would you delete it? Also i don't know that you even have permissions so if not would you say who can delete it or inform people that would do it? Thanks for it.
I would like to know if there are any requirments for specific wikias to test the disccusions feature, I know it is still in testing stage but I think it would be nice to have it (or even test it) on the White Day Wiki, I realized that the forum feature is a bit harder to use for lazy users and on wikis with the discussion feature it is easier for them and lots of users use it due to it's portability, and since this is a horror game with lots of puzzles I suppose many users would like to inquire quick help.
Please let me know if its possible to have, thank you!
