The launch of the new design wasn't necessarily within my control... there were quite a few editors champing at the bit to get started with the conversion, so I didn't want to keep them waiting. The conversion to Portable Infobox didn't necessarily need to happen before the design conversion, so ultimately we just went ahead with the launch. There's no need to apologize about the timeline of things, it's just how stuff works out sometimes.
I recently realised that our wiki doesn't have an official fandom app (unlike Pokémon Wikia or Dragon Ball Wikia), and I think we definitely need one because it would be much more comfortable to edit and write comments with it. However, I don't know how to make one, so I'd love to receive help from you or any other staff member who had already made one.
the community has a fully curated main page and that Discussions is enabled, so that the community is ready for mobile users. You can find out more about how to curate our mobile main page here: Help:Mobile Main Page, More information about Discussions can be found here: Help:Discussions
Another requirement is for the community to be as mobile-friendly as possible, for example, to have portable infoboxes. For more information on what mobile-friendly means in this context and how you can improve your wiki's portability (should this be necessary), see here: w:c:portability:Intro_to_Portability
Hey, don't know if my message on The Orville Wiki went through or not, but I will just repeat it again here to (hopefully) get a reply or update on the matter:
While I've deeply appreciated you giving me Content Moderator rights on the Wiki, I'm starting to think it isn't enough for me to really take control and grow the community. We've been getting more contributors and pages lately which naturally means more instances of vandalism and a demand for general maintenance. This is why I'm formally requesting you grant me Bureaucratic rights so I may be the person to do just this.
I have over 700 edits and have been active on the Wiki for months now. In addition to that I've successfully created the Manual of Style and desire to do more with writing rule/policy pages. I've made it an effort to connect with the users and engage in community or Fandom based activities for the majority of my time editing there.
Bureaucratic rights would allow me to do really deep edits on the Wiki's fundamental aspects, stop vandalism and rule breaking in it's tracks, and even create more Orville Wiki staff in the future.
If there's anything that's making you skeptical about granting me these tools or something you'd like me to do or wait for in the meantime, please do not hesitate to inform me!
Hi. I'm JohnJD1302, and I'm active on the Just Dance Wiki and I'm an admin on the Twenty One Pilots Wiki. I saw you recently on the Just Dance Wiki recommending the admins there to implement portable infoboxes.
I've recently been listening to a lot of Coldplay and I love their music. I visited the Coldplay Wiki and I've noticed how outdated and inactive it is. The last time an admin edited in the wiki was in 2008, and the theme design was in the Mylo Xyloto-era. I've also seen that the infoboxes were inconsistent and they do not use the new infobox markup.
I'm actually planning on adopting the Wiki soon (since you know, there are no active admins). So if you could be so kind, can you please help me fix up the infoboxes for the Coldplay Wiki? I'm not really good with CSS, and the new infoboxes you implemented on the Just Dance Wiki look great! So... yeah. We'll talk more about specifics. Thank you :)
EDIT: I just saw one of the templates uses the new infobox markup... I think... I don't know I kinda still need your help..
I wanna see if you can help me out with infoboxes (for songs, albums, etc.)
