  • Do you remember that kid who kept posing as a former SP employee by the name of "James S."? Well, apparently "J. Franklin" (as he is known now by the username "KCSfan") has been globally blocked by Wikia!

    http://locomotive.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/KCSfan

    You thought HE was a legitimate source?!

    You disgust me. The wiki is a failure and will never make it past the 500 page mark. You're all a disgrace to the railfan community and you know it! So stop stalking me and please move on with your life!

    Thank You!

  • Hello there, I hope this isn't considering "bothering" you.  I was searching Community Central on how to copy photos from one wikia to another and ran across an old Talk Page you were on.  I was wondering if you have ever found a way to move/copy images between wikis on here, while keeping the original information in tact?  Thanks for any time you may, or may not, spend on answering me on this issue.

    • Oooh, that's a tough one. :) I don't believe there's a one-click solution to this, sadly. Also, I don't know of any way to include the "File history". I've had a tinker with doing this on my test wiki and it doesn't keep the upload version history. However, it does keep a log of previous uploads/ers in the history.

      You would have to be an administrator to do this (obviously):

      1. Export the page "File:TheImageYouWant.jpg" to your computer;
      2. Grab (Save as) the full size image from the link below the preview on "File:TheImageYouWant.jpg";
      3. Then upload the XML document with Special:Import to your new wiki. (The page should just display a "broken" file at this point);
      4. Upload the image using the "upload it" link that appears on nonexistent files (or just go to SERVERNAME.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Upload?wpDestFile=TheImageYouWant.jpg)

      As far as I can ascertain, MediaWiki does not record the version history of files — you can tell this by just looking at the XML document (Special:Export/File:TheImageYouWant.jpg) — so anything's better than nothing. Unless the image is due to be deleted off the other wiki, then link back to the page in the Special:Import summary. If it is going to be deleted, then link back to wiki and say "deleted from X". The quick and dirty solution is to copypasta the bare URLs in these cases for people to copypasta into the address bar. However, interwiki links do work in edit summaries although it is impossible to link to old revisions.

      Even WikiMedia Commons hasn't solved this file history issue, so I wouldn't worry about it. I don't believe I've given you exactly what you were looking for, sadly, but that's the nature of the game sometimes. Let me know if I haven't explained something well enough, or if you get stuck somewhere.

      Happy editing! ;)

    • If I'm reading and understanding what you've said, and I could be wrong on this I don't have very much Wikia experience as of yet, it looks like you're saying it keeps the person who uploaded the file?  I've tried exactly what you've said above and it did not keep the original uploader.  Although, you also said it doesn't keep the File History, and I'm assuming the uploader is part of that history.  Do I have that correct, that it does not keep the original name that uploaded the file?  Actually, that's the only part I'm trying to keep in tact.

      Ok, without sounding lazy, I just opened the .xml file and it does show the original person that uploaded the file.  So, I must've done something wrong.  I tried both options of ignoring the warning and the other one, besides the option to cancel the upload.  I'm sorry to bother you again, and I do appreciate you even took the time to answer my question.

    • I believe I've found the rub: In step 1 I didn't explain you need to keep the history by un-checking the "Include only the current revision, not the full history" option. That's completely my mistake, sorry about that! Basically, delete the image and start from the top again, including the history this time.


      It does keep the history (including the original uploader) in the page history, but not in the "File history" table. That table appears to be wiki-specific — in other words, it won't say who originally uploaded the image on the file's page because that would be misleading; you are the person who originally uploaded it to your wiki, but the original author never went near your wiki. If that makes any sense?

  • I hail from the ERB Wiki, I am JPhil2.0. I have never met someone with so much in common with me. I enjoy the Sci-fi genre as do you and I have advanvced capibilites with HTML and CSS. You are amazing with your coding work and I was wondering if you could show me how to build my own themed creation? It would be greatly appreciated. Live long and prosper.

  • Well, I've tried to post this 4 times, only to realize the links are screwing it up. Guess what that means, buddy? You're going to have to go through the images on LW and find the stolen ones yourself like I did! Ofcourse, I can't delete them and save your behind, but you can. I am the one who notified L. R. Myers about the stolen horn picture, because I know Myers and have read his opyright rules. Him, his four assistants, and over 8,400 folowers have put an immensely large amount of work into the AW page, and they sure as hell didn't do it jsut to have their work get stolen by some Autistic moron. Listen, buddy, L. R. Myers is, all other terms considered, a GOD when it comes to railroad knowledge. If he ever heard Corbin's anus of a mouth overflow with it's famous diarrhea of misinformation, he's give him a firm bitch slap upside that fat face of his, and I'd be there with the finest NAtive AMerican herbs and spices to make sure he didn't bruise his hand after the impact with such an unfeasibly hard skull. If you get this message in time, tell me how to send you a copy of the message I sent to Myers, because it contains a conveniently organized list of all the stolen images I could find.

  • Hey there SA. Just thought I would let you know that I am calling http://fablefanon.wikia.com/wiki/Diary_of_Falcon_Lionheart finished. If you really like it please nominate it for Feature Article. It would be grandstanding to nominate my own self.

    • In a shameful display of brainlessness, I had to edit my post a few times. In the process I've noticed that < (less than) and > (grater than) are both converted to &lt; and &gt; respectively. This, of course, fails because it's inside a source tag, therefore displaying the encoding. I also noticed that, weirdly, the end source tag disappears upon re-edit. I'll probably report this at some point with screen captures. ;)

  • I am a user, who, like you, enjoys Star Trek, and trains. I was just letting you know that I saw your comment under the Layout and navigation updates post and I checked out your user page. I will be using your custom template (with some minor changes to my copy for my own specific wants) and I wanted to let you know. Thank you for making it available to anyone who wants it.
