  • Hoi Mark,

    Ik vind het prima dat de Baldur's Gate wikia deelneemt aan de versus tournament tegen de Shadow of Mordor wikia. Ik heb nog een vraag: hoe lang duurt zo'n tournament?

  • Hallo Mark, om een aantal redirects en andere verkeerde links te wijzigen heb ik een bot ingesteld op de Nederlandse versie van Memory Alpha (http://nl.memory-alpha.org).

    Zou jij deze bot, PatriciaBot, een bot flag kunnen geven? Het begint een beetje vol te worden in 'recente wijzigingen'. Alvast bedankt. Groetjes, --Patricia (talk) 15:32, February 15, 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Mark,

    Thanks again for your help with the 5-star rating system.  I am adding another widget (a comment box), which works perfectly, but I can't figure out how to change the font size.  Would you mind taking a look?  The mediawiki can be found here:

    http://pathinfo.wikia.com/wiki/MediaWiki:CommentBox2

    And a page where I have added the comment box can be found here (bottom of page):

    http://pathinfo.wikia.com/wiki/Pathology_Job_Wiki

    On the page where I got the widget, htmlcommentbox.com, it says you must use css to change the font size.  I tried modifying the css and linking the code to the wikia css page, but I couldn't figure it out.  Can you help?

    (On a side note, if you know of  comparable feature on wikia, I'd be glad to use it.  The only "comment box" I could find, however, created a new page whenever someone commented).  Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Hi Mark,

    Bert (director of Wikia Community Support) recommended I contact you about the technical aspects of adding a 5 star rating system.  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!

    • Hey Lauren,

      Thank you for your interest in the system! I think ElBosso (who's German as well) is able to help you out with adding the rating system to your wikia. Just leave him a message on his talk page and he'll help you out.

      Mark

    The Names of the titles would be 

    • Characters
    • Main Characters
    • Minor Characters
    • Welcome to the Pan Am Wiki
    • Affiliates

    Thank You so much, if you could do this :D

  • G'day Mark

    I'm the Crat at the Game of Thrones: Ascent Wiki; it's a wiki for an online game based on and produced in collaboration with the HBO television series.

    I would like to recruit your assistance with regards to our Wiki's background image and getting some of our Templates to work with the new Fluid layout, should you have a moment to spare that you can lend some assistance.

    The main issue I have is that when I use the Theme Designer in the Admin's Dashboard to change the background, the Theme Designer limits the file size of the image I can use. While Photoshop can help with reducing the filesize of the images I want to use, it can't always get it down to 150kb without the image looking REALLY pixelated, and I've noticed other Wikis that don't have this restriction. Can you please advise how our Wiki can use this image as our background?

    Here's hoping that you can help us out.

    : )

    • Hey Razorgirl,

      I'm afraid I'm not available as a mentor for your wikia right now. I'd suggest contacting our Community Support team through Special:Contact, and they'll help you find a mentor for your wikia.

    • No worries at all Mark, and thanks for letting me know how we can get one.  : )

  • Hi, there's a wiki site called Vampire Diaries Novels Wiki (click link to see it: http://thevampirediariesnovels.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Tyler_Gracyne), the Founder of this wiki hasn't been doing much editing and I believe there should be more than one wiki Admin on the site and I want to be an Administrator on the Vampire Diaries Novels Wiki in order to help it grow to become a bigger, central TVD Novels Wiki if it wont eat too much of your time, they told me wiki staff was to be notified about these kind of things.

    • Hello Tyler,

      If you would like to become an administrator on this Wikia, you have the option to adopt it if the Wikia meets the adoption guidelines. If you post an adoption request on the Adoption:Requests page a Community Support staff member will have a look at the request and decide on the adoption.

      I hope this helps, Mark

  • I really hate to ask this, as I understand that my e-mail does not take priority over others. But I was wondering if there was any chance you could respond to my latest e-mail? The discussion and voting processes are officially over now, and we're all very interested in seeing how these changes will better Nukapedia. I appreciate the help, and have a good one!

    • Hey Leon,

      My apologies, I have not yet had the time to respond to your e-mail. However, I will be sure to implement the requested changes tonight.

      Cheers, Mark

    • Thank you again for all of your help. (This extends to everyone else that helped, as well.) Looking forward to seeing these new features implemented. :)

        Loading editor
    • I might have to delay the implementation to tomorrow while I make some changes to the code. The infobox template used on the wiki is unusually complex (it makes excessive use of parser variables), and as such is not fully compatible with the current format.

    • Take as much time as you need. My main concern from before was whether or not my latest e-mail response was even seen. I'm imagining that you guys get tons of e-mails to sort through over a daily basis. :P
