Hey, so I wondered if you happen to know the dimensions needed for an image to take up the entire background space of a wikia, assuming the image is fixed and not tiled. I've seen that the ComDev Team has done it many times with exact dimensions, and I thought you might happen to know them as well. If you don't happen to know them, that's alright. Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
It depends on the screenresolutions of the person behind the screen. For me, it's 1600x900, for you, it's this.
Of the ~50% who use desktop, most Wikia users use 1366x768, 1600x900 and 1920x1080, so with 1920x1080, you would have a resolution that doesn't make white (or other colored) edges for any users. Of course there's always people with over 2000px resolution, but I guess you can't account for everyone.
If you're really concerned, you can always put it into CSS and put background-size:cover;. That will make your image to fit to whatever screensize it's on anyway, but depending on the situation not always advised.
Oh, I thought he already mentioned why I'd asked to talk to you and that you understood now. I'd be glad to talk to you in chat though. I live in European time zone, so I'm not online late in your evening but should be a fair amount throughout the day. Let me know if you want to meet in Community Central chat or another (e.g. SFWiki). Thanks for the message :)
I would like to use the Christmas/New Year-wishes-tradition, though I'm a week late, to thank those around me who kept this wiki and daily life more fun for me during the past year. Everything just seems so normal and evident that we are here almost every day, yet it's very worthwhile to consider for a moment how wonderful it is to have people like you around me, making editing and being on chat a lot more enjoyable. I would also like to use this opportunity to wish a happy and healthy new year for you and everyone around you who is dear to you. I hope you'll have a great and healthy new year in which all your wishes may come true!
It's always better late than never, especially when it's more than just the default greeting (: a happy 2016 to you too, and hopefully you'll have an even more fun and productive year on Fallout Wiki (or the Fallout wikis if we include NL) than last year!
Hi ^^. Sorry for troubling you :). I just want to ask if you have any idea about making the wiki background like Pokémon wiki (pokemon.wikia.com) do? I do try to see if they put a large background image by using CSS but it seems that they did not, and I cannot even locate the image :(. Thanks for your time and sorry for the troubles (again).
Nerf: I don't just do translations on Wikia though (: as a Dutch Wikia Helper I get questions like these from my Dutch Wikians too. We do user support, help with technical and design problems, do adoption, interlanguage and spotlight requests, and also translate Staff Blogs.
Aphrodite: if you look at c:pokemon:file:wiki-background (a wiki-background is located on that filename by default), you'll see that their file is 240KB. The amount of pixels (2200x1600) is not important as long as the image size below 300KB.
↑Yes, they're mine ♥ I mean... as much as "my wiki" is "mine".
Do you also learn the stroke order? There's stroke order charts on some dictionaries like http://jisho.org/search/%E6%BC%A2%20%23kanji where you can replay the stroke order. If you memorize this too, not only your brain but also your hand will start to remember kanji (motoric memory!).
Yep. I do learn by strokes :P. Yet the issue so far is sometimes I cannot know whether read with Kunyomi or Onyomi... and in different case they have different way to read. Like third floor (三階) is read as san gai while second floor is read as ni kai -- just an exception :P.
Ik zou wensen om de Nederlandstalige History Wiki te adopteren, maar ik heb nog geen bewerkingen gedaan. Ik ga daar uiteraard aan werken, maar ik zou graag admin rechten hebben, zodat ik ook admin bijdragen zou kunnen leveren, begrijpt u?
Misschien is het hier niet de bedoeling dat ik Nederlands praat, maar ik kon niet bedenken waar ik het dan moest plaatsen. ;)
Zijn er eisen om de History Wikia te adopteren? Het gaat om de Nederlandstalige versie waarbij de laatste bewerking door een beheerder bijna een jaar geleden is, volgens mij.
Hoi, voor Nederlandse opties kan je terecht op nl:Adoptie:Aanvragen. En ik begrijp waarom je beheerderrechten wil, maar aan een wiki valt doorgaans genoeg te doen dat je ook kan doen zonder extra rechten :)
Hello, how are you? Thank you for banning him, but I think that this wiki is actually filled with sockpuppets, just so it can help you. If they are, well, that's good, if not, well, just keep the names in mind.
I'm doing fine, thank you :) @SubZero309, I was actually wanting you to “butt in” because his grudge is totally focused on the Ben 10 Wiki and most specifically you, after all. Plus, it's the Internet, so you join the conversation you want, brah :)
Lol cool. Well anyway, yes he does have a grudge against me because I blocked him on Ben 10 Fan Fiction numerous times and reported him to staff for trolling and using sock puppets. He's been doing the same thing on Power Rangers, Young Justice, Injustice, and many more wikis.
Ik zie bij niemand meer op wikia een Avatar, onze wiki doet het niet. Is dit een hack op mijn account of is dit algemeen? Hij zegt dit op onze wiki: : Unknown MySQL server host 'master.db-d.service.consul' (0) (master.db-d.service.consul))
