  • I found a like to this site somewhere in Wikia's Github repository. What is it? It will not let me log in to see the site.

  • Why is User:Boom100 a staff when he is only making fun on wikia before? Can normal users be suddenly an admin? :)

    • OK.

      I noticed since weeks that there is a new user group: "Wikia Translators"

      Are that users that are translating something? Like chinese to english?

    • Roughly correct - they would generally translate official Wikia things from English to other languages.

  • Hi Kirkburn, I don't know if you seen me while you were working with SPOTTRA over on the Clash Of Clans wiki, but my friend created a wiki called ChiefDrewClash Test Wiki. And I am an Admin on his wiki, but I can't seem to get the community message working, you know what I'm speaking of right? The message you can send out when a new member joins your wiki, can you help me with this?

  • Why was the feature to create answers wikis disabled? I want to make one.

  • Hey, I just wanted to apologize again for the mixup regarding accidentally sending a partially completed bug report contact form before the full one. I replied with all the relevant data on the incomplete one you replied to me with, and on the full one that hasn't yet been answered to by Staff, I sent a reply asking whoever gets it to forward it to you with the request number of the one you replied to. Hopefully you guys can sort it out with too much headache and confusion :)

    Would it be possible to update the Special:Contact pages to NOT send the report when the Enter key is pressed (accidentally in my case) in a field such as the URL one? Furthermore, would it be possible to provide the Request number of a sent request in the "request received" email instead of only the official response that comes later? I'm sure incidents such as mine are fairly rare, but having a concrete number to send to a staff member in the case of a mixup/development would help make these things a little less confusing to you guys when a certain someone accidentally presses a wrong button :)

    Thanks for the help!

    • It's no problem :)

      I'll put in a request about how form submission works, and regarding the 'request received' message. Definitely good thoughts.

  • Tranquility Lane has 4 inactive bureaucrats, three who haven't logged in since 2009 and another who hasn't been on since 2012. How do I go about getting their status removed?

  • Came across http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Dopp/Technical_Update:_March_13,_2012 while looking thru my contribs, I was wondering if the noteable changes for the chat might be causing some issues now.

  • Hi George. I noticed that I cannot view the left part of the preview, and the page to upload photos into a page, though I can still view most of the page. I noticed this when I am editing a page in GTA Wiki using my mobile. Because of this, I can't upload photos into the wiki, as well as can't totally read what I had changed in a page. If you can fix this, I'll be very thankful. Please reply me on my message wall.

    Screenshot of Uploading Photos

    The view to upload photos into a page. Because of this, I can't upload photos using my mobile.

    Screenshot of Preview

    View of the preview. Can't view the very left portion for both cases.

    • Ah, thank you for the screenshots (though I would still have recommend sending this in to Special:Contact rather than here.

      We don't support the use of the full site skin on smaller mobile devices for exactly this kind of reason: it's simply not possible for the site interface to scale that small. We're continuously working on improvements though - it's possible this issue will go away in the future.

    • The reason why I use the "full site" option is because the mobile version, especially in GTA Wiki, was terrible. The "Desktop" or "Full site" version seems to be better, but this would prevent me from uploading photos into a page, since that button is located at the extreme-left. Anyway, thanks for taking into consideration of trying to fix this bug. :)

  • The new breakout and typography layout is too small on bigger desktop users. The word texts are too big, the infoboxes are too big for bigger desktop users and the navigation boxes shrunk unnecessarily. That design is pathetic and stupid. You need to make some of the changes for bigger desktop users a priority as well, not just mobile users as well. You need to correctly balance desktop and mobile users because you can't keep balance mobile users more than desktop users.
