Welcome!

Would you like to ask a question about a problem you have on a wiki you edit, make a suggestion about one of my user pages, or talk about a wiki I edit? Feel free to do so and I'd gladly assist in any way I can.
I don't bite . . . usually!

I'd kindly ask anyone who's not involved in a discussion posted below to not post to it, thanks.

  • Can we be friends?

    • Sorry, but real friendships don't work that way, at the very least not with me. I don't mean this in a rude way, however, I've never interacted with you nor do I know anything about you so I can't say yes. Personally, friendships aren't something you ask for, but rather something that's developed over an extended period of time. Instead of asking someone to be friends, interact in a friendly way with them in an environment of common interest(s). You also wanna be careful asking random people to be your friend, for safety reasons as well as to avoid appearing insincere.

  • How do I make a button with the wds-button class turn into a different color?

    For example, if I have this button Example and I would like the button to be green instead, how can I do that?

  • Hi DEmersonJMFM, I was wondering if you'd be okay with me making a nominations page at The Loud House wiki sort of like the one at the Munkapedia wiki. It doesn't feel right to just make a talk page like that on The Loud House wiki without first gathering how you feel about me using an idea from another wiki. I plan on just using this talk page for the Admins to nominate users. We will still hold elections the way we normally do after a user is approved through the nomination. I'd just like for their to be a nice place for nominating someone. I thought about making a new forum board for nominations, but then I came across how it's done on Munkapedia and really liked it. If you wouldn't like me to create a talk page like your's, I would totally understand that.

    On another topic, I'm thinking about removing the focus categories at TLH due to them being, like you said, subjective categories. I think that these character focus ones are causing too much trouble. I denied category requests in the past due to them being subjective categories.

    Anyways, it's nice talking to you again.

    • That page is sort of a nominations page though it's more for Council business (which covers a wide range of topics). Seeing as Munkapedia is a less active wiki (I'm a little puzzled sometimes why The Loud House wiki is so much more active considering both series have new episodes - anywho, back on-topic), discussions work better this way. If implemented on TLH wiki, it couldn't operate the same as it would have an additional step (going out for the community to vote, whereas the Council is who's voting). You could always create a project page, say Project:Admin Nominations, and follow a similar process in which, when needed, an Admin can nominate a user for a position and the others can join the discussion ultimately casing a vote for/against the nomination (which I'm assuming you intend to do). Procedure is key so make sure to outline the intent and how the page is meant to function. You are free to use the idea though if you copy anything please provide proper attribution for the content used.

      That's good. Category maintenance is much easier when they are cut-and-dry.

      Always a pleasure.

    • I've always been confused on how The Loud House wiki is so much more active than Munkapedia as well. The amount of content at Munkapedia is incredible. It's got about everything that you could imagine about the chipmunks and all their history right there. 

      I hadn't thought of making a project page before for nominations. It sounds like a good option.

    • And there's still much more content to add too. I think the main reasons may be our ban on fanon and our (my) reluctance to enable article comments. The wiki used to have fanon content but it became a problem, mixing with canon content (easily does so even if you don't intend to, ie. images, the fandom strangely liked to recolor images), and was banned before I joined the wiki. I agree fanon isn't really appropriate on a canon wiki (fanon specific wikis exist). Article comments are another huge issue. I've seen Admins quit wikis because of trying to maintain them - off-topic comments, drama, inappropriate, spam, etc. I'd rather spend more time writing content then dealing with comment maintenance.

      Good luck!

  • Do you think it would be a good idea to include a new policy that would help control who is promoted at The Loud House wiki.

    In the policy, I'd like to include that the Admins will come to an agreement on a promotion, and approach a user that they feel deserves it. Anyone who requests a position will be denied, and those who harass/demand for it will be punished.

    Please tell me your thoughts on this policy. Is there something I should include here, or is this something we shouldn't do.

    • I completely agree with this. Users shouldn't demand ranks or just ask for them. This gets my signature of approval. I also suggest a mass demotion for inactive or underpreforming staff. Such as the admins that just promoted for reaching the requirements. A user would truly need to "Meet" those requirements. Especially since that is what caused the hiatus in the first place.

  • I'm very sorry, but something has been bugging me from earlier today and I would like your opinion on the matter.

    So I was watching over the wiki activity for The Loud House like normal, but then I noticed that a user had created two new categories without asking an admin (or at least I thought, it turns out he asked in admin in chat yesterday if it was okay). I messaged this user saying that he shouldn't be adding these categories without getting the ok from an admin but I got no response and he continued to add the categories to image files. I sent him another message in hopes that he would see that he has another notification, but he still continued to put these categories into image files. What I then did is blocked him for the minimum amount of time so he would stop adding these categories and read his messages. At one point of the message exchange we had, he said that there should be a demotion thread for my actions. I would just really like to know if you think that demoting me would be the right thing to do from this case.

    Here is the thread .

    • I don't see any harm in adding it (people need to also understand that just meeting these criteria and asking for the promotion doesn't mean they deserve the promotion or that the wiki needs another person in that position). You state though that the numbers aren't a standard then state you don't need to meet all the standards. That sounds like a contradiction to me.

        Loading editor
    • You're right. I will take out "you do not need to meet all the standards to apply for a position." Thanks for your help.

  • Hey there! I was wondering what was the issue that this diff fixed for you? Quickly testing with BackToTopButton and SkinSwitchButton, they seemed to both work/show without an issue for me.

      Loading editor
    • For me, when both scripts are used (at 1920 x 1080px and some cases at lower resolutions) and on article pages (plus when Admin is shown in the bar), the Mobile switch button was moved below the bar due to the new styling added for DisplayTimer. There was already some interference before (simply displayed over part of the text) due to Wikia added the Shortcuts button (which they don't allow us to remove in bar Customize) and I believe there was another bar change at some point in the past. Seeing the styling change for DisplayTimer prompted me to finally make the change because I don't like scripts that invade user space (ie the toolbar) or are duplicates.

        Loading editor
    • Ah, I see it now - the items in my toolbar weren't large/numerous enough to cause the issue. Other than making the bar wider as you've done (or completely moving BackToTopButton out of the toolbar), I don't think this can be fixed without making BackToTopButton possibly overlap other items as it did before.

      If you're interested, BackToTopArrow is a much smaller alternative version of BackToTopButton, and won't cause this issue.

        Loading editor
    • BackToTopArrow is added to the footer so it's not helpful to the majority of the times I use BackToTopButton.

  • What's up with your edits to your wikia.css page? Are you giving up or something?

      Loading editor
    • My limit to dealing with Wikia is stretching thinner every time they release their next big thing so to a degree I'm giving up. I like editing on Wikia, but Wikia has been sapping my resolve to continue and/or stay motivated.

      If you mean the commented out code, that's a whole nother short.

    • I get what you mean, it seems like they're just continiously spitting in everyone's face update after update. Shame. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity though haha.
