Disable anons Edit

From Anonymous editing and your community:

Starting Thursday July 23rd, administrators on most communities now have the option to prompt visitors to create accounts by disabling anonymous editing. This can be accomplished via a new switch in WikiFeatures.

Should we do this? I would like to poll the other admins.

Burning Crusade login screenEdit

Hey there Raylan13

Do you happen to have any trouble accessing the image: File:Login_screen_The_Burning_Crusade.jpg. It was appearing blank on the pages which linked to it when I was browsing some articles today. Assuming the image was removed at some point, I attempted to replace it. It appears as though I'm still unable to access that file, and the upload log is now saying I "uploaded a new version".

Portable infoboxes Edit

Infoboxes at Fandyllic's talk page...

You should make them in subpages like Template:Npcbox/portable so we can compare the current version to the portable version easily. I would also start with the simplest ones first, but I'm not sure which those might be... I'll post some candidates here or you could start a forum post to collect info and experiences. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 25 Aug 2015 1:53 PM Pacific

So from what it looks like, you need to be able to edit MediaWiki to set up the CSS classes. But most admins can't edit them or make new ones... Not a great way to promote the info box conversion. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 26 Aug 2015 8:35 PM Pacific
Ok, so I've been trying to slowly port {{Infobox}} to {{Infobox/Draft}} and it looks like {{#if:...|TRUE|FALSE}} is not being honored anywhere inside <infobox>...</infobox> tags. Is that true? --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 28 Aug 2015 2:31 PM Pacific
Here's where the #if is needed. I want this Tnavbar to only show up when specified, but the current infobox scheme doesn't allow something conditional based on just a non-label/data switch that I can tell.
How can I make the following only show up with some kind of switch?
<header style="text-align:right;">{{Tnavbar|{{{name|}}}}}</header>
--Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 31 Aug 2015 9:01 AM Pacific
Okay I figured out how to do the above with this:
<navigation>{{#if:{{{navbar|}}}|<div style="text-align:right;">{{Tnavbar|{{{name|}}}}}</div>}}</navigation>
Now I'm trying to figure out how to show either header, label/data or just data, depending on which params are used. Looks like you can't use <data>...</data> tags inside <navigation>...</navigation> tags. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 31 Aug 2015 2:29 PM Pacific
Okay things are going better. {{Infobox/Draft}} works as a meta-template as seen in Anguish/pi and {{Infobox pet ability/pi}}. Next step is attempt at re-styling to look more like the originals. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 1 Sep 2015 6:20 PM Pacific
Styling would be much easier if you could experiment with inline styles and then move them to classes. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 2 Sep 2015 8:44 AM Pacific

Featuring Global Goals... Edit

Is it okay if I do something for this: Global Goals: Why We're Telling Everyone? --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 25 Sep 2015 8:35 PM Pacific

Main page overhaul Edit

Looks pretty good. You should have Celess22 take a look and then put it in. We can tweak it after. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 26 Sep 2015 4:56 PM Pacific

Consider switching to Message Walls and new-style forums Edit

I left messages on Sitb's and Celess22's talk pages to suggest we switch over to Message Walls and new-style Forums. Since Wikia is working on a new more mobile-friendly feature called Discussions that we may want to switch to in the future, we should consider switching to something that will make the transitions less jarring. I also asked for feedback on article Comments.

Please leave your comments on my talk page. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 27 Sep 2015 9:41 AM Pacific

I will make a blog for feedback in comments. If they are mostly positive, I will announce a switchover for new-style Forums and Message Walls. We can leave article comments off unless there is heavy demand for it. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 8 Oct 2015 8:59 AM Pacific

Monobook Edit

I'm pretty sure, the monobook problems are definitely NOT something any WoWWiki admin has done. I also don't plan to try to fix it unless other Wikia staff who monitor monobook (if there are any) have looked it over. It's still usable and that's pretty much the only standard I hold it to. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 8 Oct 2015 9:04 AM Pacific

Testing template classification system at WoWWiki Edit

FYI, just left messages about this on Sitb's and Celess22's talk pages. I'm not giving them much time to respond, but this feature seems almost no impact, assuming putting it on WoWWiki doesn't break something unexpected. I assume rollback will be pretty easy. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 27 Oct 2015 3:03 PM Pacific

Thal'Dranath map Edit

See my response at User_talk:Fandyllic#Thal.27Dranath_map. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 2 Dec 2015 3:07 PM Pacific

Artifact relic slots Edit

I'll work on graphics and a template tonite. After I finish that, I'll look at tooltips. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 3 Dec 2015 3:51 PM Pacific

Should be all done, until we discover a new artifact relic slot type.
{{RelicSlot}} created.
{{Tooltip}} updated (see Template:Tooltip/doc actually).
Bug me if you see any other templates that are needed.
--Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 3 Dec 2015 7:39 PM Pacific
Also {{RelicIcon}} created if you just want the icon. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4 Dec 2015 9:39 AM Pacific

Delete all content posted by a single wiki user? Edit

Good Morning Raylan13

In patrolling the recent edits from time to time, there are inevitably users who have dropped by the wiki to post unrelated content and media (often in foreign language), which essentially amounts to wiki-squatting. On some occasions, they end up adding 20+ edits/files before I (or another admin/patroller) notices. In these situations, I will go through each article or file to review and delete them one-by-one. However, in many cases it is clear from the start that all content from the user is going fall under the do-not-post policy. I am curious if there is an option for us administrators to delete all posts/files from a user at once. Does this feature exist?

Infobox implementation Edit

Yeah you can switch over to PIs for the infoboxes on this list. Hopefully I'll get time to tweak them and improve the documentation. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 16 Dec 2015 11:04 AM Pacific

Hey, for the next infoboxes you switch over to PIs, can you rename the old one to Template:.../classic, so we still have the old one around for comparison? --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 18 Dec 2015 10:21 AM Pacific

Page Update Edit

Hi Raylan13,

I would like to offer an update for one of the wiki's pages that is currently set as "protected" and therefore I cannot add the info on my own. The page is the one regarding Multiboxing Software:

http://wowwiki.wikia.com/wiki/Multiboxing_software

The update is about a new multiboxing software called Lidc.

Here is the official site URL: http://www.lidcmultiboxing.com/

Please, let me know if its possible to add it to the list and if you would like me to provide some detailed description regarding its features or anything else.

Thanks..

This page was un-protected by Raylan13. Go for it. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11 Jan 2016 11:02 AM Pacific

Merge discussion (Mounts)Edit

The article merging I performed this morning reminded me of another candidate for merging. I would be interested in your opinion on this.

Major charactersEdit

I just finished a test page for a re-structured layout of the Major characters article. I would be interested to hear your input in this discussion, since it is such a major layout change.

Item template isn't the problem Edit

If the page name is different from the item name, you need to add |disambigpage= to he tooltip or the item template won't work right. The item template relies heavily on a correct tooltip. It used to be that if you didn't use disambigpage, the tooltip wouldn't float correctly, but I guess someone changed that (maybe me, oops). --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 12 Mar 2016 11:30 AM Pacific

The tooltip still has problems, though. Hopefully I can figure it out. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 12 Mar 2016 11:38 AM Pacific
You might want to ping Celess22 about the tooltip thing... I have no clue. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 12 Mar 2016 11:57 AM Pacific
Oh, don't use |mode={{{mode|home}}} for any tooltip that is the main tooltip for the item. Just use |mode={{{mode|}}}. Using home is what fakes the tooltip into thinking it is correct. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 12 Mar 2016 12:05 PM Pacific

Ajaxsub template Javascript problem Edit

See User_talk:Fandyllic#.22Ajaxsub.22_Template. I dug into this a little bit and I think it is because some other Javascript is interfering (duplicate hideTable function, I think), but it could take a while for me to find the the duplicate function. I was wondering if anyone on Wikia staff has some better tools for digging through JS for this problem. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 22 Mar 2016 9:35 AM Pacific

I have World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1 Edit

In case you need to check a ref from it. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 29 Mar 2016 10:00 AM Pacific

Gameshub links broken by fandom Edit

I sent you a Skype message also, but the Gameshub links at User blog:Raylan13/BlizzCon 2014 have been broken by redirecting to fandom. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 6 Apr 2016 2:09 PM Pacific

ExpansionEdit

Hi Raylan, long time no see, I just wanted to ask if you have anything to say about my ideas in World of Warcraft: Invaders of Zandalar.--Spenpiano (talk) 21:43, April 18, 2016 (UTC)

Apology letterEdit

Hi Raylan, I got your message and I like to say that I'm deeply sorry for what had just happened yesterday. I remember that you told me to use the attribution template, and I forgot to use that. Most likely, I'll try to be more careful.--Spenpiano (talk) 17:01, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

Oh thank you. :)--Spenpiano (talk) 18:27, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

CoxEdit

I re-edited the Cox page. I just hope I did it alright. Can you check?--Spenpiano (talk) 17:15, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

Same for Margaret and Mia Greymane.--Spenpiano (talk) 17:46, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

From CecijoEdit

Hi Raylan, you once asked me if I would like to become a patroller, at that time, I was not very interested, but now, I'm coming accross more and more vandalism every day, it annoys me and I would like to stop it. If you could tell me if I can become a patroller or nah, it's okay anyway.Cecijo (talk) 17:05, August 8, 2016 (UTC)
