  • Hey! I'm just curious, how many admins does this wiki have?

  • The Junk page has a table list for every item, but almost every item has its own page (which is kind of overkill, considering there's only one sentence in every page). If I merged all the items' descriptions and icons in the junk page, would it be possible to delete the redunant pages?

    • Yeah, there would probably be no problem doing that. I would recommend that you use redirectors to anchors on the junk page rather than deleting all the information, though. It makes things a little easier to search for. Using the id=linkname" in the table rather than headers to link to a row might be preferrable in this case. If you need an example you can check out the special action page tables in source mode. But if you are more comfortable just using headers, go ahead and use those.

  • Was not aware there was a template for that, thank you!

  • Would it be alright if I copied your statbox and added my changes to it? If you'd prefer to do it yourself, feel free to use whatever changes you'd like from mine.

    • Feel free to take whatever, or the whole thing if it suits you. I had an argument a while back with the main adminstratior here, Kasarn, about code bloat when I had an earlier version, though. One of the problems was a lot of duplicated code, since wiki code is pretty limited in how you can implement functions. I was using a sub-template to automatically set the icons in order to get rid of duplicate code, so if you use the statbox template, you'd have to copy that too. The problem is that I wasn't able to get the template to set the cell size for the icons correctly, which means that when the tabber is used, the icons make the statbox look different. Might seem like a minor problem, but the box is filled with that since it wasn't finished to a degree that I wanted to use it. If you want to take that on, be my guest.

      If you use it as-is, there is a new variable that sets the icons and some other stuff to the Plus versions. Unfortunately, it seems as if any other use for it died when the java recode didn't get a widespread release. The other variable set is for the character specific resistances. The idea was to display the bonuses the race gets, but since a lot of the Plus NPCs don't consistently have the resistances you would expect them to have, this doesn't work.

      Anything else is pretty much done, except for the collapsing sections which I wasn't able to get to look decent. You might want to remove those, but some NPCs with tons of skills end up with incredibly long statboxes that way. I thought about trying to columns, but with the full skill names and icons, it would change the look of the whole page and cause more problems than it solves. I thought about taking the character sheet graphic, using it as a background, and attempt to make the statbox look somewhat like a sheet, with a tabbing mechanism for mulitple pages. That was a little too ambitious, but if you want to look at other possibilties for 2 columns, that might end up working bettter.

  • Hi. I’ve given you admin rights on this wikia as you requested. You now have the tools you need to clean up, customize and maintain the wikia.

    Check out your Admin Dashboard, which can by found by clicking "Admin" on the bottom toolbar -- it has links to all your new tools. Please let me know if you have any questions, and good luck with your new (old) wikia!

  • Just saw that you got the #1 rank on the wiki. Awesome work, congratulations! It's been lonely there for soooo long! =)

      Loading editor
    • Thanks for the thought, but the wiki ranking stuff is so arbitrary that it's tough to find any sense of accomplisment in it. It doesn't really take into account the amount of work that people put into the content that they add. It also doesn't add in what people did before the stupid rankings were added, so a lot of people don't get the same amount of credit for their work.

    • Yeah, it would've made more sense if previously acquired stats were taken into account - I too was frustrated about that at first. It's also a pity that the quality of work and the difficulty to obtain the posted info could never be measured by programs like this.

      But it's not too bad, if we think of it as a useful 'meta-game' to encourage more frequent contributions and give a sense of accomplishment both early on, and throughout. That does work, at least for me. :-)

  • Hi Corak, how do you feel about becoming an admin? Kasarn thinks that the wiki needs more, and I agree. Right now he's the only active one, and all of our bureaucrats (admin-makers) are inactive since last year.

    The first step for admin nomination seems to be a public consultation with other active users (e.g. a forum announcement), to get their input for about a week. Then a request can be filed on the Community Central.

    Personally, I think you made huge contributions to the wiki, and made an impression as an all-around nice and rational guy, so I'd be glad to see you as admin here. :)

    • Sounds good! I've given you the admin rights. Really it's just another set of tools you can use to help the wikia, so don't worry about it too much :)

  • Did you ever want to be admin here? I'm not a bureaucrat so I cannot hand out admin powers.

    Go to wikia:Adoption:Requests and put in a request along with User:SiamJai or whatever. I don't really know how the process works.

    • I'll give it some thought. I haven't really thought about ever doing other stuff other than adding whatever content I can grab from my own games and whatever I can take from the japanese wiki. It depends on whether I decide I could do some good, since signing up then being an awful admin or losing interest again isn't going to do anyone any good.

    • Well, I just wanted to let you know that you have my approval should you ever wish to usurp my authority. :p

    • As far as that goes, I can respect the amount of time and work you've put into the wiki. So even if there have been times we've disagreed on some of the content, that stuff is something that no one can argue with. If I chose to try to do some of the rather tedious wiki work, it would be with the intention of helping out rather than wanting to control anything. No worries on that front.
