  • Hey, im not sure where to submit this or whatever, but im an admin of a wikia and need a lot of different additions to it—things such as a cleanup template, quote template, merge template, PlayStation buttons templates, and just generally more templates.

    • Well, there are a couple of things I can recommend.

      • Look around other wikis that have templates you like. When you find them, you can copy them back to your own wiki — but remember to give credit and a link back to the page where you found it.
      • If you can't find quite what you're looking for on another wiki, go to Board:Support Requests - Getting Technical and ask there.

    • A third thing you could try would be to go to w:c:templates, a wiki dedicated to templates.

    • Thanks, but I don't know how to actually "copy", or rather incorporate other templates into my wiki. I've tried the "copying" process twice with the quote template and another, and simply nothing happened.

  • Greetings, CzechOut. I believe you've had Sakura0Xavier come to you about this before, and I've been trying to figure out how to make it work. I've updated the Fanon wikia's (https://my-hero-academia-fanon.wikia.com/wiki/Boku_no_Hero_Academia_Fanon_Wiki) css to match with the main wikia's (http://bokunoheroacademia.wikia.com/wiki/My_Hero_Academia_Wiki). I've even updated the Switch and Toggle Templates to match the main wikia's. However, I still cannot figure out what the problem is. I've never updated classes before, so that realm is completely unknown to me. I also did not understand your


    "You're looking for classes that have the word "toggle" in them. An example of a class you need would be something like ._toggle Manga."


    comment. I'd very much appreciate it when you'd be able to reply back to me and offer some assistance, cause I've got nothing, haha.

  • Hi, 

    I don't know if you received the message or not but I talked with him and he accepted, here, also all pages are categorized.

    Is it possible to make now the step further?

    Thanks for your time

  • Just for letting you know, as you demoted Esteban02 from vanguard. I think that you should remove his profile from this template as well. Kind regards.

  • Do you have a minute? I want to believe that the problem is on average, I am user # 7488 - blocked for nothing, from the very beginning - I do not know ... Can you unlock? Is it possible to block it?

    • In the meantime, did you know that there's a Ukrainian Doctor Who wiki? It doesn't have much on it, but maybe you could adopt it and build it up? It's at w:c:uk.doctorwho!

    • Well, that happened more quickly than I would have expected.

      Your ban has been lifted.

      I'm honestly not quite sure why you were blocked. The blocking administrator had only time enough to lift your block and leave a note that it had been lifted.

  • Jen jsem se chtěl zeptat, zda je možné se na Vás nějak obrátit v češtině? Moc se tu technicky neorientuji, ale působím i na Wikipedii, jaksi v ověřovacím provozu tvořím obsah vlastní wiki v odborné instituci pro památky, kde působím. Dovoluji si takto jen proto, že asi mohu z Vaší přezdívky tušit nějakou možnou spojitost... Zdraví Jan Sommer

    • I see. Thanks for the clarification. If I needed some help, I would try to use the translator. Unfortunately, I do not know English. Now I just wondered if I can watch updates on wikia.com on the selected page. I do not seem to see anything.

    • Technically, you can follow a page by appending ?action=watch at the end of its URL and then enable email notifications for followed pages.

  • Found a bug for you to fix:

    In Fandom Starter Pages, the death place field of Template:Infobox character is mislabeled as "Date of death". Due to this new wikis created on Wikia will have the death place field of Template:Infobox character mislabeled. Can you fix this?

    Below is the source code of the template.

     <infobox>
             <title source="name"/>
             <image source="image">

  • Hi Czech,

    We haven't communicated before, but I'm Matty and I need your help.

    I've been reading through some of the old forum discussions from Doctor Who Fanon (don't worry I'm not about to ask you to reconsider advertising DWF on Tardis again!) and it seems you could give me some valuable advice.

    As you prophesied, DWF went through another one of its reoccurring dormant periods again recently. This time, however, it was my fault. I lost interest due to a failing user base and abandoned the wiki around about a year ago. Luckily, a new user adopted the wiki recently and this - along with my increased spare time - has spurred me into an active period.

    Yet, I know that, if there is no community on DWF, I will most likely lose interest once again and the wiki shall fall again. That's why I need your help.

    Could you give me some advice on how to build an active user base? How do we attract more users? Are there any improvements you can see that DWF desperately needs? Also, could it better comply with Wikia policy?

    You may not be a user at DWF but what do you believe our aim, as a wiki, should be? You mentioned previously that it didn't seem as if we had any true, defined aim.

    Thanks,
    MattyMG13 WikiSig

    • Hey :) Sorry for the delay in responding, but my holiday season was incredibly busy.

      My number one recommendation is that you speak with the admin of the more successful fanon wikis to see what they've done.

      I'd consider wikis that are getting in excess of 100k views per week as "successful". Here are three of the most popular fanon sites at FANDOM, along with easy links to their admin:

      Other things to consider:

      • Make it clear on your top navigation, your desktop main page and your mobile page how people can find particular types of fiction. Organise by Doctor, companion, era, historical, futuristic, modern day -- and any other useful descriptors of the fiction's content. If I recall correctly, what I was talking about years ago was that it was really hard to figure out how to find the content. I think there are people interested in fanon who don't care about wholly original fanon. And there are people who love that kinda stuff. Your site should probably cater to those who want to find stories involving Jamie or Rose just as much as those who want to talk about the 53rd Doctor and her companion, Whatever McGee. Navigability is important to any wiki, so the more you improve that, the better chance a stranger has of finding something they like about your wiki.
      • Toward that end, you may want to consider firmly separating wholly original fanon from that which uses TV-established ones. This could be accomplished by asking, via Special:Contact, for a unique namespace for the original fiction. Make every story that employs only user-created characters have a title like Original:This is My Title. That way, it'll be easier, long-term, to manipulate titles and create lists.
      • You may even consider splitting the wiki off into a second wiki. Have all the 100% original stuff in its own wiki, while you reserve dwfanon.wikia.com for just stuff involving at least one widely-known character. This would probably make dwfanon more popular in the long-run, as people tend to be more drawn to characters they already know. Meanwhile, the newly-created, original wiki could be a place where you didn't have to worry so much about numbers, but could be a place dominated by a few writers who had a clear idea of what they wanted to write. If that sounds like a lot of work, it's probably not as bad as you think. You can use Special:Export to easily move the pages themselves, while the styling can be easily cut-and-paste from one set of .css pages to the other.
      • Encourage what writers you have to write regularly. Maybe get them to publish once a week, on the same day each week. Regularity brings loyalty -- and eventually numbers.
      • Design should probably be more towards BBC Wales than BBC London. Most people drawn to DW these days are more familiar with the 21st century version of the show. Keep your design elements closer to that. The average reader will probably feel more at home.

    • Hey again :) So apparently the person you really wanna talk to about Star Wars Fanon is SavageOpress1138. They're currently the most active admin.

  • Hi! Thank you for your support always!! When I translated Help:Language code as Japanese Helper, I found you deleted some Chinese language codes (and others)[1]:

    • zh-cn - 中文(中国大陆) (not supported)
    • zh-hans - 中文(简体) (not supported)
    • zh-hant - 中文(繁體) (not supported)
    • zh-mo - 中文(澳門) (not supported)
    • zh-my - 中文(马来西亚) (not supported)
    • zh-sg - 中文(新加坡) (not supported)

    But we can choose these language(-code)s as language variant in Chinese wikis

    Would you please keep these language codes in the help page? Thanks.
