  • Do you have a bot on this wiki? I ask because I need to move a page on Scoobypedia that's under too many pages for me to care to go through manually (I tried one page before giving up). Since both of our wikis are under the cartoon wikia group thing, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind helping out (if you had a bot)?

  • There are some parts of some pages that don't have have past tenses where they should.

    • Then go ahead and fix it.

    • Okay, how exactly can pages like War World still be present tense when the series they were in ended?

    • Is planet's original name known now? If it isn't, then you can't say "it was unknown". This wiki is written from a perspective of someone from the DCAU, long after all these events took place. That doesn't mean every sentence has to be written in the past tense.

    • There are other pages that can be edited. Like Darkseid's abilities. You use person, but you say "him" when you should say "them" because most people use "them" when you don't know who is being used.

  • Hi, Thailog!

    We're in the process of launching a set of television footers, similarly to how we launched our successful gaming footers; we were wondering if there was interest in having the D.C. Animated Universe site included?

    Best regards,

    Raylan

  • Could you send an PNG photo (Sokka, Suki, and Toph.png) in the Heroes Wiki (hero.wikia.com)? I'd do it on my own, but my iPad doesn't download PNG photos.

  • Hi Thailog

    We’re reaching out to a few of our top communities, hoping to get you on board with the migration to the new infobox markup. And we have tools to help!

    ‘’’Why we’re doing this’’'

    Simply put: Most current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and indeed any device that doesn’t use desktop-style displays. On desktops and laptops, they often look amazing. The problem is that Wikia’s traffic is trending mobile.

    There is an important graph from our forum post about infoboxes a couple weeks back, and I want to share it here as well:

    Wikia mobile traffic growth

    Mobile is the future. Not just for Wikia, but for the web as a whole. Take a look at the recent trends and future growth predictions for mobile traffic - it's staggering.

    We partnered with the Wikia community to create this new markup to make sure that your hard work can be displayed on mobile devices (as well as any future technologies) easily and without any new coding conventions. It’ll take some effort up front, to be sure, but we’re here to help, and the work you put in now will pay for itself tenfold in the future.

    ‘’’Tools we’ve designed to ease the process’’’

    We’ve enabled two new features on your community. One is a tool for migrating the “old” infobox code to the new markup. It identifies templates on your wikia that look like infobox templates and places a box on the right rail of the template page. When you click the “Generate draft markup” button in this box, it opens a new tab containing a draft of your infobox using the new markup.

    The second is a new feature on Special:Insights that will highlight which infoboxes on your wikia have not been migrated to the new infobox markup. It’s fairly intuitive - you can click on the infobox title link itself to see the old markup, or simply click the “Convert!” button on the right, which performs the same action as the “Generate draft markup” button.

    This is our help page for the new markup. I’ll help get things rolling by converting a template or two as an example if you’d like me to, as well as watching this thread for any questions.

    • The original code I used (in that diff) would have only had the text/link appear if there were images, and just a narrow strip of color if there were none. I knew it wasn't an exact match but I thought it looked ok; however this should only appear at all if there is a link. I tested it in preview on a few pages and it seemed to work.

      Because I used navigation instead of header tags, you can then use the pi-navigation class to set the text size/line height separately from what is used on the other headers. I did that here.


      Theme only works on the overall infobox, not on individual elements within it. So you can only have one header styling per box. If you want different types of headers you need to use different tags (eg. title vs. header vs. navigation) on them so they can be styled separately.

  • Hey, I'm pretty sure you're head honcho around here. I sent a message to Tupka also. We had a conversation awhile ago about possibly changing the name from dcanimated.wikia.com to dcau.wikia.com. Is that something you're still interested in?

    • It makes more sense, though only if we keep the current url as a redirect.

        Loading editor
    • DONE. The redirect is intact. I don't know what it was like the last time you requested a change, but now it couldn't be more simple. It was literally like three clicks for me to change it and I've been on the job less than a week. Ugh, this makes me feel so much better. The URL of this site has been bothering me for YEARS.

        Loading editor
    • Same here. Thank you! Hopefully now people will stop peddling every DC animated movie because "this is the 'DC Animated Wiki'".

      Last time I asked, and this was way back, it was not only possible but I was also denied the "dcau.wikia" redirect because, and I quote, "DCAU can refer to many things". Eventually they capitulated, but I didn't pursue the renaming again.

    • Oh wow, that's so silly. Well, the ComDev team now has a DC Database admin on it, so hit me up if you guys need anything else.
