We're actively working on expanding MediaWiki namespace editing abilities - we can't reopen the entire namespace at once because we need to run various security checks (and user security - your security - is our priority).
The Common.css/highlights.css has been read-only since the security issue. I know that the Common.css is editable again, but I want to know if highlights.css is going to be opened back up soon. I'm a bureaucrat on that wiki and I have a couple users that are wondering when it come back up. I don't know how to highlights on the main Common.css.
We really appreciate your patience - the team are hard at work on various tweaks, though we know it can look a little quiet in between big releases.
After copying across the code, on http://transformersprime.wikia.com/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.css, simply remove the line that says: @import "/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Common.css/highlights.css&action=raw&ctype=text/css"; ... or, alternatively, put /* */ marks either side of it (similar to the CUSTOM CLASSES text just above)
We have already sent wikia staff an email about the troll but we figured it wouldn't hurt to send it on here. I understand waiting time is usually 1-2 business days, but this troll we are dealing with is getting out hand. They have made multiple accounts and adding pure spam to many pages in the wikia. We have since deleted those comments, but we don't know how they are are able to make new accounts. I honestly don't think we can wait that long anymore. This troll doesn't look like they will stop. Here they are:
Hi George, I have a question about images & their licensing. I'm on a wiki based on a show, so that being said there are bound to be similar wikis out there, with similar information and images (but in other languages) because most of the info & images can easily be found. But in some cases, you need to look closer to find certain images (or info) that are not easily noticeable and can be hard to find in general. And after they've been found, sometimes editing must be done to get the image to look just right. And I've found a few images where I had to do exactly that, and once I upload them I put "Self" as the licensing, and from time to time I check up on the other wikis and I notice that the same images are being uploaded.
So what can be done about this? The images are available to the public, but I was the first & only one to notice them, and I had to edit them. And I know that the other wikis are bound to have to same things, but I thought that wikis should be unique as well, and they never asked for permission before uploading the exact same image (file wise). So what should I done?
Licensing and copyright is always a bit of a tricky business - could you send this question in to Special:Contact/general? We can make sure it gets to someone who can answer your question. Please include links to examples, to help us look into it. Thanks!
The dev wiki now has a strange protection where users who aren't an administrator, wikia staff, or wikia helper can't edit. I checked the recent changes, and no edits appear to have been made. Also, scripts are breaking.
