  • Thank you for your support always!

    Would you mind adding Project:Templates/de (and Project:Sandbox/de?) at Wikia-Startseiten? (cf. w:c:starter:Project:Templates)

    I think some languages' starter pages have Project:Templates pages. And Cyanide3, VSTF translated the page to German at WLB wiki, so maybe it is good for other wikia to add her translation at Wikia-Startseiten.

    I asked about it to Cyanide3, and she introduced you. What do you think about it?

    Thanks, and sorry about my broken English and ignorance of German.

  • Hello Micha,

    I'm an admin on the english Civilization Wikia and wanted to share some insight about the issues we've had to face.

    I see you've been doing a lot of work filling out the CivBE articles in the German Civilization Wikia and I just wanted to point out that I've noticed an inconsistency as to which links and pages receive the (CivBE) suffix or not. For instance http://de.civilization.wikia.com/wiki/Feraxit links to "strategische Ressource", a concept also present in Civ5 and most likely in future civ games. Sure it's a lot of trouble to go through right now but the if the wiki does take off and become popular it might suffer from tangled links between documented games. It will also make adding the next Civ game to it more trouble as you'll have to go back and add the suffixes that weren't there. Finally standardizing your suffixes will certainly make templates easier to design.

    For generic suffix less pages you'll probably want to come up with a disambiguation scheme.

    • Hi Becer,

      thanks for pointing that out! I am not a big fan of suffixes and in my main wikia I mainly only use them when really needed, but I know what you mean in this case. I may not have enough time to go through all the pages, since many already existed before I started working on the wikia (with a lot inconsistencies on suffixes like Civ 5 vs Civ5 vs Civ V vs CivV) and other people did it the way they preferred to do it. I think this is something to figure out for the active community once it is established which way they want to do it. As for me, I am keeping it in mind and try to implement the needed changes as good as I can for the time I have left to work on this project.

      Thanks again :)

    • I do agree that suffixes are a huge pain to work with, they really do complicate every step of maintaining a wiki. This being said we just haven't been able to come up with a better way to do things. If you come up with one I'd sure love to know about it!

  • Hi Micha,


    MarkvA (Wikia Community Support) recommended I contact you about the technical aspects of adding a 5 star rating system to my wiki.  I'd like to add something similar to what is used on the German Books Wikia (http://de.lieblingsbuecher.wikia.com/wiki/Faust).If this isn't possible, could I use a widget from rating-widget.com?  I've seen several other wikia sites use this widget (e.g. http://2brokegirls.wikia.com/wiki/And_the_Hold-Up).  I've tried to add this widget several times, but I just can't seem to get it to work. 

    The wiki that this will be used on is the pathinfo.wikia.com, but I'm currently experimenting with a new layout on path.wikia.com. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Lauren

    • It should work now. MediaWiki:Common.js should use the import statement to pull in MediaWiki:Common.js/star-rating.js.

    • From my experience you don't have to give the rating a number if you make sure you only have one on a page.
