Ice Edit

That's news to me - and surprising. Let me do some digging when I get on. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 15:41, July 15, 2013 (UTC)

Update - Turns out he isn't blocked. The account was disabled, as per his request it seems. He may have decided to open a new one under a different name or something else may have happened on his end. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 16:21, July 15, 2013 (UTC)

Main Page Revamp Edit

Heya Winky I was wondering what you thought of this main page - the slider and/or the layout. I've been looking at our site for some time and thought we might benefit from an overhaul of the main page. I think the above wiki comes closest to what we might need. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 19:38, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

Got a rough going today, which you can find here. Be sure to read through the notes first Winky I set aside a section for discussing everything. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 23:47, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

Macrophager Edit

Macrophager you have returned! Tankingmage (talk) 18:20, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

Hey macrophaqer what realm do you play on

I don't actually actively play at the moment. Pacman NomNomNom Macrophager (talk) 01:00, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
That above post wasn't mine, it was an anonymous user. Basically if you haven't noticed already, we've opened WoWWiki up to anonymous users and added visual editing. Both seem to help the wiki, as anonymous users may eventually make accounts, and they can help to clear up vandalism and it gives a greater quantity of edits.

Turkey! Edit

Hey - just wanted to wish you a happy Thanksgiving today - eat and sleep lots! Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 16:33, October 14, 2013 (UTC)

Nope, doesn't affect us at all. As for pumpkins, if we ate them all for Thanksgiving, there'd be no going to the pumpkin patch with the kids for Halloween! Grin Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 16:49, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
Ahh, I've never done that. Pacman NomNomNom Macrophager (talk) 16:51, October 14, 2013 (UTC)

Vandals Edit

Tripping over each other to block it seems Tongueout Sorry about that. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 19:36, October 14, 2013 (UTC)

Doodling on your user page Edit

Sorry...  but I left you presents :)

Was fixing links and figured I'd leave you some breadcrumbs, to help you find and manage your things. Hope I didn't poke the bear *too* much. I'm mostly done moving any major things around.  Let me know thoughts, gripes or otherwise. Celess (talk) 00:14, October 16, 2013 (UTC)

Tabber Edit

There's now a {{Tabber}} :)

See also User talk:Celess22#Tabber Status. There are detailed notes on the template for use. There were some difficult issues as things were... :) Basically as is now, this new thing is a faithful recreation of the old thing. Is exactly the same except for the template semantics part so as make it easy and lessen any other issues, as I know there was *a lot* of hard work that went into some of the pages that use Tabber. I'm going to walk through the pages myself today, and do the monotony to change them; the only ones I know for sure are Class pages. So if you know of others, please let me know or feel free to change them. Let me know ifyou have any issues :) poke poke. Celess (talk) 19:19, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Google Cache of Hunter from 21st (currently) for comparison purposes, so can make sure all good. :) Celess (talk) 20:01, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Cool, i'll take a look when I have a chance! Pacman NomNomNom Macrophager (talk) 02:18, November 5, 2013 (UTC)

Help with moving vita luna Edit

Hi, I've been trying to fix double redirects and came across Vita Luna which has previously been moved into the guild: namespace once, but is now in the main namespace again with a redirect occupying its proper place. Could you help untangle this? Thanks! - Sasyn (talk) 00:04, November 3, 2013 (UTC)

In a similar vein, Bolvar Fordragon seems to be separated from its talk page, WoWWiki_talk:Bolvar_Fordragon with a whole mess of redirects in between. - Sasyn (talk) 00:36, November 3, 2013 (UTC)
He's probably busy at the moment doing school, or maybe something canadian... I'll go look.  However having not looked yet, I suspect you are needing something similar to {{speedydelete}}.  Feel free to mark pages for delete as well, even for situations like this as you go along. :) Celess (talk) 05:34, November 3, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, I cleaned them up. The 'Fordragon' issue was a little tricky, as there are a bunch of external links going to the bad rename page. So I gave them a place to go, so that the true Bolvar can stay happy  :) Celess (talk) 06:30, November 3, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah sorry, I just finished writing six exams, and now I have three assignments and another exam in the next week. Thanks for covering it Celess! Pacman NomNomNom Macrophager (talk) 02:17, November 5, 2013 (UTC)

id like to point out the Zangarmarsh page needs to be edited in the geogarphy part its stats not much is known of zangarmarsh and it doesnt show on the draenor map when in fact i does on the new warlords of draenor map its right where is it in present day outland its in fact under all that water mushrooms are growing underneath blizzard has stated this. the waters ran dry and the naga that are in present day outland continued to drain it further.

Admin Nomination Edit

Wanted to point out my admin nomination for Tankingmage. Please feel free to leave your thoughts about it! Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 23:44, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

Poke Edit

Rawr Winky Celess (talk) 23:44, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Put words underneath, afford the text link esp for accessiblity, will also solve your height problem. will want like 400-410 probably
K now, make sur elink in words of some kind for p[oor accessibility peoples who cant type ro see goodCeless (talk)
ohes noes, you used loose |, so surround with choose option wrapper adn all good :) just like for tabber, < choose>< option>sdkjskdjskdjk</option></choose>
poooooke
yea! could also do the {{!}} business too, err instead
mmhm, and can use padding with center, is your friend, like so < center style="padding-top:30px;"> same as above example
oooo :) and plain external is just single bracket '[' with space for title seperatator instead of |.
so now you know. and you see the downside if rotating is fixed best height and having to work content to look nice to fit, possibly. the upside is that no onehad to go hit photoshop hardcore, so it more wiki user accessible and wikified like. ;)
what I mena by that is that the blizzard oneis only images and someone had to go make special high rez cuts and composites, just for that one spot on that one page.
should try large rotating media gallery tag inside one of the banners, when they hover it will stop anbd tey can play with it

remember that you can click 'welcome' at top of any portal to force update page.

i think 410, but you did it !1!! :) remember can suggest things, its bare, no buttons npo preview, no speed adjust, jsut let me know

Nope. Sorry, ill refrain from being silly :) Celess (talk) 02:21, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Anon vandals discussion Edit

It's been a while since I touched bases on this, so wanted to see if anyone has any opinions either way on the proposed tweaks to the vandalism policy. It's a two-fold proposal Winky Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 21:37, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

Just silly bear poking :) Hopefully didn't sound too serious. Winky Celess (talk) 00:49, December 7, 2013 (UTC)
Based on the discussion, I went ahead and put up the anon penalty changes for a vote, so be sure to pop in there! Be aware that I'm moving the discussion of an additional template to another proposal, so that isn't included. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 22:22, December 18, 2013 (UTC)

Promo format Edit

I like the change - the only two things I would do is make the empty space tighter and add forward and back buttons Winky Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 17:23, December 9, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah not implemented yet :) Would you rather have individual buttons to select slides, or the 'forward and back' initially. Blizz one that this was modeled after had buttons. Soon should be slide left or right rotating banner things. The idea was to start with what Macrophager asked for and end up with ability to do something like what you wanted originally, or at least to have the ability to stretch in that direction Winky . Celess (talk) 01:44, December 10, 2013 (UTC)
For the promo format, buttons would probably be better than forward and back. Makes it easier to navigate. Once we get working on the portals, those would probably just be easier with forward and back (and portal links, etc.) - but that's in the future obviously. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 16:23, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Icons Edit

Except for three. The updates to the 'do not change' ones were removed too :) Careful on the undo/reverts 'by hand'. Is better to undo or revert easy to miss things. Also gets the ! patrol flag automatically. :) Celess (talk) 01:44, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

It's likely these are being used for hosting. If Raylan13 has a way to look at referrer for File:Download.jpg can know for sure. :)Celess (talk) 01:56, December 10, 2013 (UTC)
What are the other two? The Download.jpg isn't being used for anything and can be safely removed.
I mean someone place an image here to use for another site, using WoWWiki for hosting :) The other two are in the mini icon page, either could be useful maybe. Left them for you (Raylan) and Fandyllic to normally. Celess (talk) 19:16, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Also, fyi, be sure to double check if/when going through the Unused Files category. The content isn't auto-populated, and sometimes people don't go back and see if the image is being used to update it accordingly (use "what links here" tool). Also, anything with "background" in the name, even if currently unused, should remain. We'll eventually be rolling out some custom individual page backgrounds at the end of the month Winky Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 16:52, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah there are lots of ways an image could be used and not be visible to the regular wiki dependency thing. Is best to not remove images with out proving that they aren't, which is very very hard to do. There are tons of images in css and js, and come that the URLs are programatically generated, lots and lots of those.
However, in this case, this guy blindly uploaded two smallish batches in two days, like 10 per set range. All but three were byte for byte copies, where Macro found, looked, and marked them, and I used a local serious business batch compare pare program, (before I noticed the built in wiki one. Special:FileDuplicateSearch :) So he was requesting delete obvious copies, and then I double checked went through the stack of deletes. This whole this thread started as my response to him saying he already looked, and I was letting him know three were unique. Just so you know :)Celess (talk) 19:16, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Fanfiction Edit

Macro, I was trying to make a page on this website, but it keeps getting deleted, it doesn't have anything bad on it, but why is it getting deleted? Me and 2 other friends are trying to create a story, of which we are almost to finished with series/book 1, and plan to make 2 more at min after this, and I wanted to make a role play story about it on what happened, but it is keep getting deleted.Marleybeast (talk) 17:33, December 15, 2013 (UTC)

what about the tales of the past 3 series, I am just wondering. They made a page, but yet... it's not really factual, because you can't get the regular ashbringer, or able to change the area of your surrounding within the video. I'm not trying to be rude or anything, but I'm just saying.Marleybeast (talk) 17:39, December 15, 2013 (UTC)

Administrator Edit

Thanks Macrophager! Tankingmage (talk) 16:36, December 16, 2013 (UTC)
