Several AccountsEdit

Where should concerns about multiple accounts be addressed? --Ilublawn 19:19, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

How do you mean? Multiple accounts where? Kirkburn  talk  contr 20:57, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
Uh, I think he means an account here and an account on central Wikia. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 20:59, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
Ah, you want to chat to someone on Wikia about it? You can try sannse on here or on the IRC channel. Kirkburn  talk  contr 21:19, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes, if there's a problem with accounts of different names, just give me the details and TOR or I will work it out -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 12:30, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Account merge/rename/problems? Post here Edit

Post below for any account related issues and requests! I will be collating a list of requests for the techs to go through (if I do not reply directly, you are not being ignored!).

Please remember to include and highlight your exact current and proposed usernames. Kirkburn  talk  contr 14:29, 24 April 2008 (UTC)


Merge: I am User:Chubtohd on WoWWiki, and User:Natpagle on Wikia. Can the accounts be merged to Chubtohd please?

How do I rename my account back to Shandris? --  Shandris  talk / contribs 14:49, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

If the account named "Shandris" on Wikia is not your own, you will unfortunately need to choose another. Kirkburn  talk  contr 14:54, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Possibly to get mine renamed to Varda667? (Or just Myaku667/Angband667, if it's taken.. I don't mind really) --WoWWiki-Myaku 15:40, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Done. You're now Varda667. --TOR@Wikia 18:03, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
*Sigh* I'll wait patiently for the user pages, rights, watchlist and contributions transfer i guess. I'm half expecting to discover you lost them though. --   16:42, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
They are not lost, they just need to be transferred. It happened to me and several other users. Please read the article. Kirkburn  talk  contr 16:57, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Merge: I am User:Sandwichman2448 on WoWWiki, and User:Sandwichman2449 on Wikia. Can the accounts be merged please?--SWM2448 20:48, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Done. --TOR@Wikia 18:03, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
I think the intention was to merge to User:Sandwichman2448, as this was his active account. The merge seems to have removed stuff like User talk:Sandwichman2448/Archive01. Kirkburn  talk  contr 20:32, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Merge: May I get User:WoWWiki-Ashley merged with User:Xuuri? Thanks! --Xuuri 00:47, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Done. --TOR@Wikia 16:38, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Done. --TOR@Wikia 18:03, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Merge: I was user Darkstar on WoWWiki (now WoWWiki-Darkstar), and I just created an account named "Dark-Star", with which I'd like to merge. Thanks. --WoWWiki-Darkstar 08:13, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Done. --TOR@Wikia 16:38, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Done. --TOR@Wikia 18:03, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
My contributions are now attributed to Ithilian Shadowsong, however I still have to logon as WoWWiki-Ithilian and if I want to create my user page as Ithilian Shadowsong I get the following warning; "User account "Ithilian Shadowsong" is not registered." WoWWiki-Ithilian 08:16, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
Aw. My bad. Should be fixed now. TOR@Wikia 12:58, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Merge/Rename: The conflicting account for WoWWiki-Fizzwidget on wikia might be one that I started to create and lost track of... if a merge isn't possible, changing my name here to GazmikFizzwidget works. Gazmik Fizzwidget T · C · W 20:11, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Merge/Rename: May I merge with/take over the account named Highwind? WoWWiki-Highwind is really lame, and the other account is rather inactive in contributions. Highwind is not my account, though - perhaps let trade nicknames with it? User:WoWWiki-Highwind 03:42, 7 may 2008 (CET)

Done. --TOR@Wikia 13:48, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Merge? Ok, so funny story. 9Dragons JUST got into wikia, so I tried to create a new account there with my old WoWwiki login, and it kept telling me wrong password. So I had it send me a new password, and changed it. Only then did I find out that WoWwiki joined wikia! So could I merge http://www.wowwiki.com/User:BarGamer and http://9dragons.wikia.com/wiki/User:BarGamer with the WoWwiki as the dominant account? If you need to delete the wikia one, you can, and just do Methodology 3. Email me when you've done this, please? --BarGamer (talk) 06:41, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Rename: I was Thoth, but now I am WoWWiki-Thoth. There does not appear to already be a Thoth, so I'm not sure why I got a prefix. If you can rename me back to Thoth, that would be nice. WoWWiki-Thoth (talk) 19:27, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Done. --TOR@Wikia 13:48, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Merge/Rename: After the merger, I was renamed to User:WoWWiki-Slackwise, but registering my old name of User:Slackwise says it is taken. I am very confident the account is mine, but have forgotten my password or something is borked. Unfortunately, there is no email listed for the account, so I cannot reset my password.

Can u Please rename : User:WoWWiki-Dragoness to Dragoness? I have been administering our Escapism site for a while now, and would like to have the name back. Don't think it's right that others can just register the name like that, not sure if it has as the other name's not been posting anything and doesn't exist if u look it up. Is there anything u can do about it ? Guess the other option would be to change it to DragonessBH ( Bloodhoof )

Renamed to Dragoness. --TOR@Wikia 13:48, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Merge: Merge User:WoWWiki-Coolperson (old) with User:Coolperson1 (new), confirmed to be the same here.

I'm putting the above requests forward to the techs to be looked at, but after this week, we are unlikely to accept any new requests due to the amount of work it can require. Thanks! Kirkburn  talk  contr 18:03, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

NEW Forced wikia style Edit

I have to say that I hate the new frame design wikia is putting us here, not anything against wikia, but plz dont spam the whole page with your links, and at least if you do so make it use same CSS as inner frame content. plz Greetingd--Andersmusician$ 19:12, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

It is not forced - see here. Not sure what you mean, however as I would hardly call it intrusive. Kirkburn  talk  contr 19:16, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
I didn't like it at first and switched back to the old one. But I've grown to enjoy it, and it doesn't mess with the way articles themselves look, so I don't mind. You still have the option, as Kirkburn said, so if you don't like it, just uncheck the custom skin box. // Montag (talk · contr) 00:59, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
I don't see any advantages of the new style. The pages are loading painfully slow, because of all the implemented script or stuff. And the old WoWWiki skin is not available anymore. I always liked the wiki concept behind this site, now it's overloaded with useless stuff and just not a wiki anymore. Hope you do at least get enough money for selling it to wikia. --WoWWiki-Kennedy 10:17, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
The old one should still be available - I will look into it. The rest of your comments I cannot agree with - WoWWiki has been under Wikia for almost a year. The new stuff does not affect its "wikiness", but gives you the option of using more of the end user functionality of a normal website (e.g. the menu system). Kirkburn  talk  contr 11:48, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

contributions from merged accounts (prolly intended) Edit

Obviously, I had my account merged with my existing wikia account.

However, checking Preferences, only the contributions from my existing wikia account are located there. Checking my Contributions, there's obviously more than the 1500 or so I have from the various contribs on the rest of wikia...

Is there anyway to get that number fixed? :( --Sky (t · c · w) 20:40, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Indeed... I've only got something like 37 contribs listed. --k_d3 20:41, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Known, will check situation after the weekend. Kirkburn  talk  contr 22:06, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Update: this was fixed several days ago. Counts should now be for the entirety of Wikia-dom. Kirkburn  talk  contr 20:03, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

math tag broken Edit

in regard to parantheses.

<math>\left 8 \times CL \right + DiffCL = XP</math>

produces

Failed to parse (syntax error): \left 8 \times CL \right + DiffCL = XP


Obviously broken. --Sky (t · c · w) 21:46, 26 May 2008 (UTC)


<math>\left ( 8 \times CL \right ) + DiffCL = XP</math>

works fine:

\left ( 8 \times CL \right ) + DiffCL = XP

There doesn't appear to be a bug, just a problem with how it was written. Kirkburn  talk  contr 06:47, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
