  • Ayy partner, would you please block me due to ToU violation across all wikis?

  • Nice.

    One last thing that should be modernized for now is the Table of Contents. Here's a comparison of the current and the modern and currently conceived ToC.

    ModernizingToC

    Alright, the modernized ToC has several details I will explain.

    • There should be a ToC button between the Edit and the Comments (or Share) button. When clicking it, it will show the modernized ToC on the left side of the page. It will remove the background once the ToC is opened.
    • The left arrow icon collapses the ToC itself and puts the ToC button back in the area of action buttons.
    • The up arrow icon is a back to top button. It leads back to the top of the article.
    • The edit icon leads to Special:ThemeDesigner. In the Theme Designer, there should be an extra color square exclusively for the ToC. It designs the background color of the ToC. This icon will only appear on users who are content moderators or admins in a specific wiki.
    • If an article has a lot of headings (including sub-headings), the ToC itself is scrollable. It should have the MinimalScrollbar script, as a free addition. When scrolling, the header of the ToC (its name and the tools) floats, which pretty much has the behavior of the Latest Discussions module in the Fan Feed.
    • The "Introduction" heading is the first heading, found on all article pages.
    • The background color of the section the user currently is in acts like the color of the WDS buttons on hover. The section heading in the ToC will have an arrow on the right.
    • The search icon makes you find the name of a heading in a specific page.

    Hopefully something like this can be considered for wiki modernization, because the ToC does need modernization in general.

  • Hello, Brandon. My name is Charlie and I am a bureaucrat on South Park Archives. I was going through some of our main character articles this evening and was surprised to see that the featured videos were added on our wiki without a heads up or consent from the wiki administration. In addition to adding the video, both of the pages were changed to a different font from what we use on the rest of the wiki. I've had discussions with the other administrators and we really do not want this feature on our wiki. If the videos for whatever reason must remain, I'd like the pages to be put in the font the rest of our wiki uses. As well as the video being put on the BOTTOM of the pages. I've been a supporter of the new features you guys have been rolling out like Discussions. But something like this being done on our wiki without even a heads up, in my opinion, is not okay and I hope I get information from you or somebody else from FANDOM as to the next steps we can take, as myself, my admins and my community do not want these on SPA. Thanks for your understanding!

      Or just remove them altogether if they don't fit a wiki - featured videos aren't suitable for wikis with dynamic content, especially games such as RuneScape which are updated weekly where some videos such as about making money are quickly superseded.

      Agreed.

  • Hi Brandon, i have a problem.

    I submitted my own adoption request after i joined the wiki. So some user told me that i have to edit the wiki at least a week, and so i did it. But after that, nobody could accept my request. When i sent Wendy a message about the request on her message wall, she didn't reply to me but Sayla does. But later, she won't accept my request.

    So, will you accept mine? http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Adoption:BoBoiBoy_Wiki_(2)

    • Please be patient. It can take Merrystar a couple weeks to respond to an adoption request. And it can also take a couple days for her to respond to a message on her wall. You can watch the progress of your adoption at Adoption:Requests. You're number 26 right now, so it's still going to be a little while before she gets to it. Just make sure to keep editing the wiki at least once a day.

      I'll try.

  • Howdy, as part of the march to Indy 5, I'm trying to go about getting navigation templates similar to Wookieepedia multimedia layouts (navstart etc.) for the Indy Wiki. By which I mean the exactly the same except in, like, earth tones. ;) I was hoping you could point me in direction of the best person to ask for assistance, please?

    Those responsible for creating them don't seem to be active there anymore and doing a quick look around other big wikis, no-one else seems to have anything quite as useful. Thanks.

  • Hi Brandon, I have been keeping myself up-to-date on wiki modernization and I got interested in it. I've taken liberty to reconstruct the slideshow so that I could contribute to giving ideas.

    Currently I've done a slideshow reconstruction and i hope it'll give you some ideas, live preview http://avengers-academy-design.wikia.com/wiki/Avengers_academy_design_Wiki.

    • Hey Artricity, I am Julia and as Brandon I am also part of the team that is working on the Modernization project. Great to hear you like what we did so far around Modernization! We don't plan right now to work on the slide shows but I have to say I am pretty impressed of what you created and creative input is always interesting and helpful. Thanks a lot!

  • Hi, I saw that you've been adding videos as part of the modernization project and I was wondering if you would let individual wikis have some input on the content of the videos? I'm a content mod on the One Piece wiki, and I'm sure a lot of us would be willing to help out with scripting/content/etc. to make sure the videos are as accurate as possible to the subject.

    • Hey Videogamep. We create videos based on traffic patterns, and right now One Piece isn't in the area of traffic we're focusing on (traffic to individual pages has decreased since we made the initial video). Once traffic spikes back up again, we'll create additional videos.

      We won't be working with communities directly on scripts. We tested that out and found the process too slow for our fast-paced production schedules. However, once we know what pages we'd be working on, we'd love to hear ideas for concepts. That would be super helpful!

    • Apparently even the 24 hours we were promised is "too slow" for a "Fast paced Production schedule".  C'est la vie.

    • "Too slow for our fast paced production schedules"? Dude, virtually any wiki with even a half skilled video creator in its staff could make something far better than the vids you've sent Fallout and Runescape wikis. We could easily replace all the vids with more accurate, higher quality ones in easily a few days. What kind of "fast paced production schedule" can't handle a few days' wait? Seriously, it won't cost you anything to just wait and let us put more effort into it.

  • Hello, Brandon.

    I don't believe we have met. I'm Tommy, a staff member of the Walking Dead Wiki, and I'd like to talk to you about FANDOM's recent addition of videos on top of articles, if you'd please.

    I made a blog on our community addressing staff in general, however the user CamTheWoot pointed out that it'd be best if I linked it here on your wall, because there's a low chance of a staff member just randomly stumbling upon it, and if I understand it correctly, the videos were your idea? Or at least on our community?

    I'm not too sure on the details, but I'd like if you could check out my blog because our community in general is not pleased with the videos, including a few staff members and even admins, and there's also problems regarding the fact that we specifically asked for them not to be added, but they were anyway.

    Sorry for sending a message this late, but I've been busy, hope it's not a problem. Thanks in advance, I hope we can come to an understanding regarding this matter.
