  • Hi Luma.dash! I'm Héctor, one of the Community Managers working for the Gaming vertical. I've recently found something this wiki has included in its JavaScript page and I would like to discuss with you about it. Checking MediaWiki:Wikia.js, I found you added on January 11, 2018; a variable to show a custom message, using the global banner, for those pages that have included a Featured Video.

    While I totally understand the reason why you added this, and I'm totally fine if do you want to show a message to the editors and readers on the pages where there's a Featured Video, I would like to request you to use another way to show the message.

    This kind of banner is basically used for special purposes, and if you add that variable to show your custom message in a bunch of pages, it can turn into a conflict of messages. I know other communities, that also have Featured Videos, that are also using similar messages like you, but they chose other options like a template inside the pages. One of them is Red Dead Wiki.

    I expect you will understand my concern because the use of the banner, and I'd be glad if you change (if you don't want to remove it) the way you show the message soon. Feel free to reach me with any doubt or concern regarding this.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hello!

      I'm just following up on this for CuBan VeRcEttI as he is on vacation at the moment. 

      I noticed the banner is still up. Would it be possible to get that taken down now that the featured video issue has been taken care of?

  • I've seen it on several wikis now and want to create something similar, but it just doesn't seem to work on my main wiki. Is there a special plugin required? And if I do get it to work, do you mind if I use it?

  • Hey Luma, I'd like to know which version each of these two screenshots come from. I'm not sure if they both come from the PS3/Xbox 360 version or one is from the PS2/Wii version.

    • I'm not sure, but I think the image above is the PS3/Xbox 360 version and the one below is the PS2/Wii version.

      Given how Dark Gaia's energy is denser in the above image compared to the one below it.

  • So, do you know how the image box works and the main page's Wiki/Portal. I want to transfer them onto my wiki but don't know how it works. Can you help me? Can you give me the bit of the programming for them from the CSS?

  • Crazy need to be informed her rights are about to be lapsed. Please let her know.

    • The log page of her contributions indicates that she protected a page on the 15th of December last year.

      So, I think we can count this as a contribution.

    • I have good reasons to protect titles is for the case of vandals using inappropriate titles to attack the wiki like this user for instance renaming items and Eggman's robots to erotic things which needs to be banned for that.

    • I believe inappropriate titles can be blocked from creation better from the blacklist mediawiki page.

  • It sickened me when I see the articles in Sonic Underground Fandom getting violated and many sex-related articles were created.

    I am wondering who would get that fandom back to normal?

    • And I know that it has nothing to do with you, but... I am letting you know that it has been vandalized so...

      You can pick either one;

      1. Allow me to become its bureaucrat and rein all the damages in then made it becoming its own fandom instead of copy/paste of what SNN had been.
      2. You can call VSTFF to kill the fandom off - after all, you are an administrator with more rights around the fandom than I do.

    • I'll not pick any choice, and that wiki has nothing to do with me. Whatever you do with this matter is yours to decide, not mine.

      Also, you're misunderstanding something: FANDOM consists of millions of wikis, and this wiki is one of them. Each wiki has its own group of admins whose "tools'" scope is only the wiki they are selected as admins on. Thus, my right is not "global" and I possess no authority over any other wiki besides this one and cannot influence the actions of users with global rights.

      I hope this makes it clear to you.

  • I requested an interlanguage link (as you can see here ), however I got a confusing response from the user who linked the Wiki's, I contacted them about it and got no response, I tried linking some pages (such as Sonic's page) to the Croatian Wiki, but again, it just leaves a blank link, can you help out please?

      Loading editor
    • Nah, it works now. If you don't see the change yet, just add ?action=purge to the end of the url of the page you added an interlanguage link to it to see the newly changed content.

    • I know it works now, I forgot to remove this message. Thx for writing back

  • Hi Luma, I recently had a conversation wi DeCool about linking this Wiki's pages to the new Croatian one, however we ran into some technical dificulties and the pages wouldn't be linked at all, and just leave a blank link on the bottom to a nonexistant article. He said he'd ask you about it, and I'm not sure if he did, but I decided to contact you as well. Do you know what the problem might be?
