Welcome!Edit

  • "The tables in your wiki are sometimes rather large and can be hard to read."
    • I'm impressed. It's not every day that we find someone with your initiative and skill!
  • "I've noticed that you guys didn't pick on my earlier suggestion to limit the width of TOCs."
    • I apologize for this, as this is a change that would benefit the wiki. The fault is with me since I can be a tad forgetful at times. I'll make sure to have this brought up with the other Administrators, and I'm sure there will be no controversy, whatsoever.
  • Sorry to be so blunt, but in its current state, it looks butt-ugly on some pages."
    • Depending on resolution, I absolutely agree with you. There's still a lot that we can do to make Nukapedia more aesthetically pleasing.
  • "If the only reason you haven't picked up on it, is because you guys lack CSS expertise..."
    • We lack technical skills in general, at the moment. We do have a few users that are able to aid us in that field, but this is fairly limited.
  • "...then I request to be made an admin on this wiki!"
    • An interesting proposition, but unfortunately, it would go against both our policies and collective community consciousness to just so blatantly hand out such extra tools. However, I have done a bit of research into your history around Wikia, and I have to say that I have seen nothing but good from you. This, along with your community skills and initiative, I would fully support you requesting for such rights once you meet our basic requirements. You may find those requirements here.

┌─────────────┘
I am greatly looking forward to seeing you rise throughout our wiki and community, should you decide to remain with us. Thank you again for the help that you've already given us. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 04:26, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

CSS Edit

Howdy, Pecoes. I did see your message to Bleep about the TOC css fix. I looked at the page (granted in Firefox only) and the TOC aligned to the left of the infobox for me. Had it not, I would have looked at adding your fix. I'll check it in other browsers to see if it's browser specific.

As for the table css you just left for Leon, I'll look at that tonight. I would suggest creating a table class just for long tables using that css and only applying it to the ones that really need it. There are some long tables that we use hightlighted colors on to represent certain things, (e.g. highlighted weapons on the weapon overview pages denote unique weapons) and we won't want the shading to confuse readers. I appreciate your help and suggestions, and recommend that if you have any further suggestions or ideas that you run them by me. I have enough knowledge of css to test out your fixes and apply them, but not enough to create everything we need from scratch. Thanks again,  The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:43, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

TOC screen
This is what I'm getting (with source, I just wanted to make sure I didn't have anything effecting the css class "toc"). This is very odd. I've checked it on two computers, two accounts, chrome and FF each. Still not getting that you're getting. Anyone else out there seeing this? The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 22:42, May 7, 2013 (UTC)
No problem. I looked at the long table css you provided, and it does interfere with the highlighting on some tables (e.g. Fallout:_New_Vegas_weapons). What I'm gonna do is add it as class va-table-shaded or something like that, and we'll add the class to the tables that need it most. Did you see any others like the perk page that stuck out to you? The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 00:34, May 8, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the compliments, but I wouldn't say we're completely capable with CSS. And definitely not with java script. I knew absolutely nothing about html, css or java script a year ago. I've since learned enough html and css to be, as they say, dangerous. It often takes many failed attempts to get something right. Since most of what I've learned is seeing how things have been done here in the past and changing them to suit new needs, problems arise when something completely new needs to be done. With no base of knowledge or a suitable example to work from, I'm at a loss. And my attempts to learn java script have been even weaker. I understand the principles behind the code, but I really need to learn to write something from scratch. I plan on taking courses, when I have the time.
That being said, if you're interested, I'd like to keep an open line for when I do run into something beyond my limited skills. As always, we appreciate the help and compliments on our community. We're pretty proud of the community we've built here and welcome anyone to it. I added that table class, va-table-shaded, so if you run across any tables that need it, go ahead and apply it. Thanks again,  The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:33, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Tables Edit

What ended up being wrong on your end? And thank you. :) We do try hard to keep our community active and thriving. I hope our wiki has been to your liking. As for the Adminship request, have you ever thought about settling down with a wiki? We could always use and appreciate skills like yours, and I would happily support such a request should you meet our requirements. And definitely. If we have something that goes over our heads, I'll make sure to send it your way to see if you're interested. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 17:38, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

User page backgrounds Edit

There's a few of us that use them, some a little better formatted than others. As long as you don't cover up anything Wikia's gonna get mad about (ads and whatnot), you can customize your userpage any way you'd like. It's a great way to get new editors to learn a bit about editing and keep them interested. We've got tons of userbox templates that folks seem to like to use, too. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:48, May 10, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. I looked at that js. If I have time tonight, I'll play with importing it and seeing how it works. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:42, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

Infobox image problem Edit

I've moved all discussion of the infobox template image issue to Forum:Infobox_image_size_problem so the conversation can occur in one place. You can see my recent findings there. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 17:06, May 18, 2013 (UTC)

For all your help on the infobox problem Edit

FO3 Mentats
You have been given a package of Mentats.
Your efforts and diligence have not gone unnoticed, and you have been given a small token of appreciation.

Archiving old forumsEdit

Hey, Pecoes, one of the things I've had running around in my head was creating some kind of "Archived forum" template. Ideally it would check to see if a forum had not been edited in XX amount of days/months and pop up a message box at the top of the forum and lock the forum to editing to all but sysops. I've seen similar kinds of things on CC. Is this something you're interested in looking at? The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 02:05, June 17, 2013 (UTC)

Diabox-half Edit

You wouldn't happen to be around today, would you? I have a bit of CSS I'd like for you to look at if you have the time. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 22:47, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

I was wondering if you might be able to help me migrate the diabox-half div statement to Nukapedia. Here's a CSS example that I've managed to discern:
div.diabox-half { 
width: 400px;
}
div.diabox, div.diabox-half { 
background: 0px 0px #111111;
border-radius: 5px;
margin: 10px;
padding: 10px;
}
body * { 
animation: ms_nodeInserted;
}
a, abbr, address, article, aside, audio, b, blockquote, body, canvas, caption, cite, code, dd, del, details, dfn, div, dl, dt, em, embed, fieldset, figcaption, figure, footer, form, h1, .WikiaRail .module h2, .WikiaRail #RIGHT_SKYSCRAPER h2, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, header, hgroup, html, i, iframe, img, ins, kbd, label, legend, li, mark, menu, nav, object, ol, p, pre, q, samp, section, #LEFT_SKYSCRAPER_2, small, span, strong, sub, summary, sup, time, ul, var, video { 
border: 0px none currentColor;
font-style: inherit;
font-weight: inherit;
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
vertical-align: baseline;
}
div { 
display: block;
 }

Oops, forgive me - I had meant to send you the source link: Example page. See the dialogue box that hold this?

"'What brings you, wayfarer grim, to wander here, in Sovngarde, souls-end, Shor's gift to honored dead?"

  • Who are you?
  • I pursue Alduin, the World Eater.
  • I seek entrance to the Hall of Valor.

Jade Empire Edit

You just saved my sorry hide today, because of a comment you made on a three year-old thread on the Bioware forums. Wanted to extend my appreciation. :D ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 08:47, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

Hmm. I'm actually having a bit of trouble using your mod. I've copied your files into my j02_workshop folder, but the two guards are still blocking the way without being accessible through combat. Any clue as to what I am doing wrong here? I can't imagine I would extract your mod somewhere else. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 09:03, July 2, 2013 (UTC)
Oh. Not sure if it matters or not... my version of Jade Empire is from GOG. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 09:26, July 2, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, the override folder was the first option I went for. When that didn't work, I dig into my data folder. I found out what I did, though! I double-checked the override parent folder, and realized I made the dumb mistake of only extracting the folder holding your scripts in it. Everything is working perfectly now - thank you again! I can't believe GOG and them would sell a game that requires third-party fixes to actually play. Seems pretty sleazy to me. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 17:53, July 2, 2013 (UTC)
Weird. I never had that issue at all when I had originally played Jade Empire on my ol' Xbox. Still seems to me that they should have created a fix for such a blaringly obvious game-breaker when selling the game themselves, but that's something else for a different day.

Colour Schemes Edit

Hey - I was wondering if I could get your help on something. I've noticed your work on the Tardis wiki, and I was hoping you could help me out. A while back, I had started up discussions over changing the look of our wiki, and was met with very mixed results due to dark vs. light contrast debates. Is there any way you can import/create an example for me to use to introduce the concept of having a button to change between looks for the wiki, similar to how the Tardis wiki has their pages? ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 18:49, August 12, 2013 (UTC)

You have been made an Admin here. Take your time with its creation, especially if it might cut into your own personal time. Something like this will take a while anyways, so I'll see about getting the ball rolling with everything else. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 20:06, August 13, 2013 (UTC)
