  • Hi,

    I do not see it in the drop down menu. Will this board be added to the "Community" part? or users have to manually click on "forum"?

  • Hi DaNASCAT, sorry to disturb you but I just got a notification about an update to the Technical Updates Board and I'm afraid I'm a little confused of what that means. I'm still fairly new to FANDOM and I'm not really on this exact site very often apart from communicating with other users on my own wikias. If you have a few minutes, could you help me out please? Just so I understand the purpose of the board and what this update means. Thank you.

  • Hello. You were the first staff member under Community Technical, so I bring this to you.

    I've been fiddling with Template:Navbox code on Template:Navbox/draft for the last two days trying to make it look a little better. Well, I think I found a fix for one problem I mentioned in August 2016. However, before I put the little fix into the live template, I wanted to talk to someone in charge first.

    So on line 4, I would change...

     -->class="navbox" style="border-spacing:0;
    

    to this...

     -->class="navbox" style="width: 100%; border-spacing:0;
    

    So, should I leave the live template alone or see if that fixes the live template?

    Oh, one other thing, I've set up a section on my sandbox to put the draft template through its paces. If you care to play with the draft, please do. Lady Aleena (talk) 08:05, October 19, 2017 (UTC)

    Well, after I sent you the above, I made a mistake and the draft is now bad. I don't know where I went wrong, but I'm still looking. So, please don't look for now. Two steps forward, three steps back. Lady Aleena (talk) 09:33, October 19, 2017 (UTC)

  • Tbh Wikia was a better name for the network site instead of Fandom

    Why the staffs change the name?

  • On this page, the section for Chat moderators include the ability to check a person's IP. Is this an actual ability?

  • I noticed the Abuse Filter blocks things with the words "enhanced autoblock enabled". What does that mean?

  • That user named Kevin Squidy keeps asking me to write down everything on Wigglepdia day after day. I'll show you an example.

  • I own a bunch of wikis, specifically, Don't Starve 2 wikia (a fanon wiki). Recently, there was this person named Punisherishere who "vandalised" some pages on the wiki, due to me posting a forum idea on the regular Don't Starve page about advertising the wiki, and bickering on why it was bad. I told him to knock off the bickering he was doing to me, because he kept questioning me and my ideas. He told me he was, quote, on quote, "I could make this game more logicial now, hehe". This is not why I came to you. I banned him, and he called me a 6-year old imbecile, a idiot, and other rude names. Again, this is not why I came. 

    My friends and I found evidence that 2 of the favorite wikis he was in he got blocked.

    One was about trolling and harassing users.

    Another was about vandalism (as translated in russian).

    Me and my friends realized that he was bad news, so I decided to come to you. I don't know if this kind of thing isn't aloud, but nothing here is taken out of context. But I will admit I kind of was immature in some cases. He still doesn't have the right to be here if:

    1) He has been blocked for trolling on 2 wikis, one russian.

    2) He harasses users

    and 3) Vandalises and bickers.

    Here is some evidence, along with pictures to prove he is blocked on 2 wikias

    http://dont-starve-2.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:118  (one of the threads of which he called me a idiot and a 6-year old imbecile.)

    If you would like to contact my friends, their names are TheFandomBoy and Pinacoin. Pinacoin origianlly found the blocked evidence.

    Punked

    Punisher on the Madness Combat wiki, blocked for harassing.

    Punked2

    Punisher blocked on the Undertale Russian wiki for vandalism (as translated in Russian.)

    Thank you for reading, I just found a random staff to report to.

  • Hi Tim,

    I've returned from a brief period of inactivity and noticed that for some reason the page layout has change across all articles on MySims Fanon Wiki. The main column now starts part way across the page, squeezing the main bulks of text together and leaving a large area of blank space on the left of every article. I was just wondering if you could look into this to help us find a resolution for the problem, getting the pages to fill the screen once again :)

    Thanks, Josh

  • Hi DaNASCAT :)

    I saw this thread right now: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:TOR/MediaWiki_Upgrade
    The last update was in 2012. The old version on FANDOM is 1.19.24. The current Mediawiki is 1.29. Is there a update planned? Like in 2 months or next year?
    I'm just a bit curious :)

    • I don't think Wikia plans on updating their MediaWiki version simply because there were so many changes in their codebase and updating will break more things than it will fix. However, Wikia backported a lot of useful features from newer MediaWiki versions (like Special:Diff) to their version of MediaWiki. They also recently started to backport the SemanticScribunto extension.

    • Yes, I already read that Wikia adds some of the features. But there are still many missing. I hope they will add more things from these updates, but I think you're right. Wikia changed so many things and it would be really hard to update it with MediaWiki codes :)

    • You can always put your suggestions for MediaWiki features that could be backported to Special:Contact/general. I should also note they do, however, backport important security updates from newer MediaWiki versions.
