  • Hey SpyTec! I'm Jamie from FANDOM's Community Development team! Not sure if we never asked you if you are interested in turning on the Discussions feature for this community, and migrating the Threaded Forums across as well.

    In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. Discussions also links with our FANDOM Apps, which this community has and it allows app users to easily take part in Discussions as well. You can read more about Discussions here.

    For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.

    If you have some concerns, Discussions, and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions and Forums will be sunsetted as a feature, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.

    Feel free to have an open discussion with your community about this, and I'm available for any questions you might have. Have a good one!

  • Hi Spytec, it would look nice to add images to the celestial info box. Now they're below the infobox such as here . The template is locked though. Can you add it or please give access?

  • Hey! 

    I came across your old thread on reddit but dropbox have since dropped it, is there any chance that you still have them somewhere?


    Cheers!

  • Hi SpyTec!

    Broo Tarquin's page has a couple of comments that could be seen as offensive. Are they OK? Or should they be removed?

  • Thank you for fixing the damage the troll did.

  • Hi SpyTec,

    I noticed that the layout of the front page of the Wiki is a bit messed up. The blog feed stretches the 2 column table view so wide, it ends up obscured under the Twitter and changelog feed on the right hand side.

    The problem can be cured by only having the blog feed in a single column table. I also notice that the 2 blog feeds ('Recent' and 'Popular') are identical: the only difference is that one shows the 3 most recent blog entries and the other shows 5.

    I can remove the duplicate feed and reduce the layout to single column view to fix the layout issues, but didn't want to make any changes to the front page unless you were happy for me to do so. Or, if you would prefer to fix it yourself...?

    I've attached a screenshot of the issue.

    Let me know what you'd like to do.

  • I walked the entire changelog from 16:56:36 to now looking for impartial undos.  (Generally it was any page that had more than 2 edits.)  Only found 2 that needed an additional undo to restore. All the +/- variations seem to be auto syntax cleanups by the system such as deleting extra spaces, pluralized link names, etc.

    Fun...

  • Hey there, I've "moved" (I couldn't move the comments themselves, so I had to copy/paste the text) the ships discussion over here: Link

    Please check it against the original to make sure everything's correct.

    The old pages to delete are these: "Ships main page content and formatting" and "Forum:Ships main page content and formatting" (a leftover redirect).

    • Hello again. Since almost a month has passed and DNYI still hasn't responded in the dispute over the Ships article, I feel that I've waited long enough for this matter to be resolved and would like you to rule on it and un-protect the article.

      DNYI reverted my original edits without first seeking an explanation, then immediately locked the Ships article for an indefinite period after I reverted him and opened the discussion. Locking the article was an unusually forceful measure, especially since I was fully prepared to enter into a discussion over my edits at DNYI's request (I'm not the kind of person to edit-war); however, I can give DNYI a pass for this since it's an admin's prerogative on how to handle every dispute.

      Nonetheless, indefinitely locking the article is an inconvenience not just for myself, but for other editors, and now weeks have come and gone with no answer or action from DNYI. This is unreasonable. As you are another of this wiki's administrators, I would like you to conclude the dispute in DNYI's stead: decide whether or not my disputed edits can be restored (I will abide by your decision), and then unlock the article.

    • It's not finished yet, not had time to look myself (forgot). I'm guessing DNYI also forgot, best would be to send him a message on his message wall. But continuing discussion on improving it can now continue in the dispute thread

  • Hi Spytec, I've added links to all language versions of the Elite Dangerous Wiki. Some frontpages are protected so I asked them to add it there.

      Loading editor
    • Hey! Great. But the guy you asked to add it in already did it for the page you edited. You also added them wrongly (they're incorrectly linked). For reference you can see how they did it in the previous edit. Literally just the language code and the corresponding article for the other language wiki

        Loading editor
    • The language wiki links in the top such as:

      Languages: English - Русский

      Are extra links to the other ED wikis. It's also done this way on some other wikis, but not essential.

      I've added the language code links correctly to the other language wikis such as the German, Czech, Spanish, French and Chinese versions. It's also on the Russian version which I asked them because the frontpage is protected. I also asked a person to add it to the Italian version which is protected. 

      A lot of these other language wikis appear to be inactive, so hopefully this interlinking will bring people to those wikis and revive it.

  • Hi Spytec, I noticed the header color was changed to bright orange. That's a big contrast with the dark tone of the rest of the wiki. Could it be made darker? That would look better and be less distracting imo.

    • I think overall the design is quite nice and better than before. Does screw up the header a bit though but we might just change background image instead.

      Edit button and stuff, althrough weirdly placed on the right does look nice

    • The rest of the wiki has a dark tone with light colored text. I think darker shade of orange (or other color) would look better for the header. A dark background image for the header could look nice.
