RE: Challenge with sliders Edit

Hi Agent c!

It's been a long time indeed! I've played around with a few solution to fix your problem, and I think I have a working solution. You can view an example of it on this page.

As you can see, to circumvent the slider loading before the parser functions are actually executed, I've made use of the #tag parser function. To create a list of the images for each day, I've added a variable called date which holds the images associated with the date, which are then added in the #tag parser function.

This should let you have a unique slider of every day. Let me know if you have any questions or if this doesn't work for you. Mark@Wikia (talk) 03:24, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Advanced fun with sliders Edit

I left you a message on your forum thread that may be simpler than Mark's suggestion. Don't worry, I don't think you're a total newb. I put the references in for all the other people who stumble onto your thread looking for help, hopefully it will help them figure out what all the code means. If you reply here, make sure to tag one of my walls (I don't typically follow user talk pages). -- Vandraedha talk contribs 05:14, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

Game App badge Edit

Hi, Agent c!

I've been asked to let you know that Wikia has to temporarily remove the game app badge from the main page for about a week, at which point I'm told it will return. It's evidently interfering with something (ad, maybe?). Someone should be along later today to handle that ;)

Best regards,

Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 17:19, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

Let me pass that along, and I'll let you know as soon as I get an answer back ;) Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 17:27, August 9, 2016 (UTC)
It doesn't look like it will be an issue. Now I've been told different lol. With more info, looks like it's a branding conflict with the ad that's going to be run. Feel free to slap me, if you'd like. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 17:36, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

Yo, Chad, I've noticed some Fallout 4 pages that were in dire need of completion. If it is okay with you, I would like to edit each junk material pages with, "*Said junk* can currently be used as ammo for the Junk Jet or aesthetic decoration" This will be under the 'Charactistics' section for each Fallout 4 junk page. I thought they were missing this, and I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Portal featured articleEdit

Looks great! Exactly the way I imagined it. And thanks for adding the link in the title/header. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 23:51, August 11, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Ticker Edit

Hi Chad - The issue with the ticker should be fixable using the following CSS (which should go into MediaWiki:Common.css):

#ticker .CategoryTreeSection, #ticker .CategoryTreeItem {
     display: inline;
}

Let me know if that fixes the issue. Mark@Wikia (talk) 00:39, August 12, 2016 (UTC)

That seems to be an issue on the JavaScript side of things - I think your best bet there is to contact the original author of the script, who may be able to fix that issue. Mark@Wikia (talk) 23:08, August 12, 2016 (UTC)
I figured I'd have a look at the code myself, and I managed to track down the issue and fix it. The ticker should work in Chrome/Safari now. Mark@Wikia (talk) 23:53, August 12, 2016 (UTC)

I dunno. Does it have to be so big? Can't it be a little less wide and tall? Leea (talk) 11:38, August 18, 2016 (UTC)

The logo, mostly. Smaller would be better. Maybe you can also change the color? It could be a similar green that the rest of the wiki uses.Leea (talk) 11:37, August 20, 2016 (UTC)

"Aug" event update Edit

Wanted to let you know the "Aug" event has been updated and people can now vote on their favorite character. :) Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 23:54, August 22, 2016 (UTC)

ShadowrunEdit

Hi Chad, I'm definitely still interested in it. Keep me posted and I'll try and be available.

Interactive MapsEdit

Hello!

I am posting this message since you have quite a few real-world maps created using the Wikia Maps feature. As you may know, the Wikia Maps extension is no longer actively supported.

Recently real-world maps stopped displaying properly (example) and very soon we’ll be running a script to remove those from all article pages, and eventually delete the maps altogether from the database.

I have enabled the MediaWiki Maps extension on this community, which is more well-suited to create real world maps. You can read about how the extension works at Help:Maps and get started creating maps at Special:MapEditor.

Please let us know if you have questions about this Maps extension. Thanks! Ducksoup (talk) 20:22, August 29, 2016 (UTC)

VDSGEdit

Quick question for ya. I've noticed with all the pages on our wiki, we don't have one for the VDSG. What would you think if I created a page or section that listed all those little tips and tidbits that pop up on the game's load screens? I mean, we have everything from full weapon descriptions to lore to terminal entries. What's your opinion? StormRider71 (talk) 06:26, August 31, 2016 (UTC)

I've answered it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:53, August 31, 2016 (UTC)

Inncorrect Variants information on Leather Armor (Fallout 4) page Edit

Hey Agent C, quick question. Each weapon and armor has a section called Variants on their respective pages. The Variants section is supposed to list Unique armors and weapons correct? I was looking at the Leather armor (Fallout 4) page and the Variants section, instead of listing the Unique Leather armor pieces, which there are, it instead describes how armor mods change the look of leather armor pieces, which didn't seem right to me. I checked the Combat armor (Fallout 4) page and it has Unique armor pieces listed under the variants section. With your permission, I'll go ahead and change the info on the Leather armor page.Ryker6100:17, September 7, 2016 (UTC)4:47pm 9/6/2016

Quick QuestionEdit

Hey Chad. Not a big deal or anything, but I was wondering if you could update my page with the patroller icon, or is that something I can do myself? I'm also missing on the Administrators and Moderators page too. Thanks. StormRider71 (talk) 00:53, September 7, 2016 (UTC)

Hi,You have been around for some time now :-)Can you help me..Fallout 4. Nuka World. Achievement: ALL SUGARED UP. I am trying to find out when the Nuka Cola variants run out so that I can "top up again" ..My chem perk is set at 200% so is there any screen on my Pipboy that tells me when the drug runs out.--1000HrsFallout3 (talk) 14:55, September 7, 2016 (UTC)

Shadowrun Edit

Hey Chad, sounds good to me. I'll be on chat from about 6pm British time tonight if your around to discuss it further. Dweller111 13:21, September 9, 2016 (UTC)

No problem, I should be free for the evenings but have work during the days Dweller111 12:32, September 11, 2016 (UTC)

apology Edit

i am sorry i was going to say i am sorry to every one because i found this. spamming When you use multiples of a character in chat, multiple punctuation etc. Repeating the entire lyrics of a song or flooding chat with random characters.

Often times spamming leads to trolling and flaming.

1337 speak is often times comsidered spamming, but is in reality just plain dumb. Spamming is: Can I have some meat plz???????????????????????? . again i am sorry

Hey, I saw the thing you left on my account. I edited that comment but I did say that. I do try to improve the wikia by browsing and editing on regular posts by my experience. I don't like when there is not enough info. I play Fallout 3 a lot and I make edits where I see fit. Andrew03 (talk)

ThingsEdit

Heh, old habits? I've been good, thanks! Travelling, studying, all that stuff! How've you been, ol' buddy ol' pal? Hugs MadeMan2 "Say 'ello to my little friend!"

Re: (mobile) front page Edit

Thanks for getting back to me on this! Your plan to revamp the desktop front page sounds great, and there's nothing wrong with saving work on the mobile main page for after that's finished.

The only thing I'd like to point out is that all mobile users and app users don't see the regular front page at all, they only see the mobile main page. That's a considerable chunk of your visitors. Right now, with no featured content curated, there's just a big empty space at the top that takes up a third of the screen in the app.

I know you've been doing great work with Discussions, but I don't know if you use the app too? If not, I'd be happy to show you a screenshot so you can see this for yourself. On mobile web, the space set aside for featured content is just omitted, so you won't see it there.

Either way, it wouldn't cost much time to add links to some of your top articles there, probably just a minute. You'd probably spark the interest of a lot more casual visitors if there was something good there, keeping them on the Fallout Wiki for longer, and showing them something cool without them having to navigate through the categories first. You could change what's in your featured content at any time, too, so you wouldn't have to worry too much about finding the absolute perfect content right away.

Tl;dr: There's a big empty space in the apps where featured content should be, and I propose putting something there now. You can always change and improve it later, but having just nothing there is a missed opportunity.

What do you think? (As a side note: I played Fallout 3 and used the awesome content on the wiki myself via the app to find all of the bobbleheads. It was great, and so I have a personal interest in making the mobile main page as helpful and appealing to visitors as possible) Mira Laime @Wikia  (help forum | blog) 12:20, September 21, 2016 (UTC)

Wow...Edit

I guess the love for you and J has left the wiki according to that guy. Geesh. StormRider71 (talk) 01:25, October 1, 2016 (UTC)
