Dude go ahead and do whatever you'd like, aha. Expand pages, do whatever. I'm retired, and though I did install some editing guidelines if you want the wiki, it's totally yours to do whatever you'd like with. Let me know.

Hi, on the page Bennie Konopka I am unable to make the text in the biography paragraph "normal" it stay the same size of the Heading 3 text and refuses to change for me. IF you could fix it that would be great, thanks. Also how do I add images?

DiscussionsEdit

Hi! Thanks so much for letting me know that! I was just asking if you guys wanted to turn on Discussions. We wanted to turn them on because the new season is coming soon and we wanted community members to have a place to talk about it.

Like I said on TheSonofNeptune's wall, discussions are great because it is a mobile friendly tool and has the potential to turn casual mobile users into desktop editors.

Also, if there's anything you need in terms of moderation help or anything else, please let us know.

To learn more about what you can do in Discussions, check out: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Discussions

Also, read more about how you can customize your Discussions and set up guidelines for contributors: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Admin_and_Moderator_Tools_in_Discussions

Let me know what you think, and if you want to proceed I can get the ball rolling. Witnessme (talk) 22:14, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

Oh, that's great! Do you want me to wait until after you hear back from the community or should I go ahead and activate discussions now? Witnessme (talk) 22:28, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

Alright, I've activated them. Let me know if you need any help with anything! Witnessme (talk) 22:32, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

Formatting stuff Edit

Hi!

I have two questions related to formatting for the wiki.

1) Is there any sort of style guideline anywhere? I asked The miller, but they didn't get back to me, and I've noticed that they tend to go in and make formatting edits after I've updated something, so obviously I'm not getting things right. I'd like to be able to check that stuff over myself so that other people don't have to spend the time on it, but I'm not sure if there's any sort of example page or guidelines anywhere.

2) Can I update the infoboxes and templates that are out of date? The only infobox that's the current, portable style is the character one - everything else is the old style. Also, most templates don't have types, and a couple don't seem to match up with the rest of the formatting (the book one, for example).

Thanks!

Hey,

(I have no idea if I should reply here or on my page, so I'm replying here.)

I would love temporary admin status to make some of the back end updates, if that works for you. If I have the time and can come up with some guidelines for standardization, I can try to do so and run them past you - I know we have one for photos (which I only just found, so I'll have to go back and fix up my photos now) but it seems to be a bit broken.

I'll also keep trying to fill in missing pages and such, but if I can help make things easier for anyone else who wants to do so, I'm happy to do what I can!

Also - I know it would involve a fair bit of fixing things up, but right now some episodes are titled "And", some are titled "... And", and some are titled "...And". Could we settle on one naming format? IMDb doesn't use any leading dots, and that seems easiest for linking things, but if people prefer a different format, anything consistent would be fine with me.

Thanks,

Thanks! Hopefully I can get to work on some of the backend things over the weekend. With more of us working on revamping stuff, is there somewhere we should check in to see if what we're doing makes sense to everyone/try to avoid overlapping?

Brightest (talk) 23:26, August 13, 2020 (UTC)

OK, sounds good. FYI, the drop down menu still points to SonofNeptune as the only administrator. Brightest (talk) 22:47, August 14, 2020 (UTC)


I would expect being an Admin, it would allow me to better help make revampsThe miller (talk) 17:01, August 13, 2020 (UTC)

Infoboxes Edit

I've done up draft versions of all the infoboxes I can find - I'm not sure if there is anything else that needs one.

Once approved, they should just automatically replace the old versions - they use the same input names. I think they're fine, but I didn't want to push them over without someone else looking at them first.

Brightest (talk) 22:17, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Hey - as I assume you're busy, I'm going to push these through this weekend unless I hear otherwise. If something breaks, I should be able to roll it back, but from the testing I've done, they should be fine.

Broken "Wanted Page" links Edit

Hey,

I just wanted to let you know that I submitted a support ticket in the hopes that they can clear out the old forum links that showed up on our Wanted Pages Insight page when they moved the forums.
