  • I feel like such an a-hole for not checking out your Wiki before now. You have done a fine job sir, and you should be proud. You're going to have to show me how to implement the latest WAM Score, when it actually is going to start mattering to me.

    • That "box" is a standard feature for legacy wikis. I haven't used it in a while so it is possible it has some new bugs I am not aware of. Give it a try on another wiki like Community Central and see if you still have issues. If so, then perhaps you should file a support ticket about it.

      Yes, I should actually fill my user page. It is just hard to find the motivation for it given that almost no one comes around anymore.

      Fandom's legacy platform uses a custom-made thread-based feature for Forum, message walls, article comments, and blog comments. The UCP replaces this with Feeds and thus the corresponding features are quite different. According to staff, the legacy thread-based solution is poorly documented, hard to maintain, and not very compatible with MediaWiki. The new solution is still not compatible with MediaWiki. In fact, it is essentially a completely separate platform. However, staff claim that the code is better organized/documented and that the feature is more future-proof. Because Feeds is not integrated with MediaWiki, you cannot use wikitext. Therefore, no internal linking syntax. In fact, tagging articles is a relatively recent development.

      Haha. As long as the relationship doesn't turn parasitic, I don't mind.

    • Hmm. Having a different markup language between the forums and the rest of the wiki just makes no sense. but whatever.

  • How on earth do you remove a category? Some of them seems to be permanent.

    • Hey Qedsa40, great to be hearing from you again. That depends on which category and on which page. Some categories are added by templates so they may not be removable. Could you provide a link to the page as well as tell me which category you want removed?

    • No sweat. Anyway here's the page link: https://transformers-legends.wikia.com/wiki/Tailwind_(1) and https://transformers-legends.wikia.com/wiki/Laserbeak_and_Ratbat_(1)

      Both their factions are labelled wrongly according to their card.

      Anyway, I really like love this game so much and was quite sad when it had to shut down. I mentioned in my blog that I more or less found a replacement to this game where it's an actual TCG with actual transforming characters! Speaking of this wiki, I even have it added as my favourite community, showing how loyal I am to it. Anyway, I have noticed that some pages either missing their images and (on my fault) had low resolution so sorry about that. I still had the game in my library thankfully and am wondering if I can extract some files with some third party programs to add better quality images.

    • Okay, so those categories are added based on the value specified in the template. As you noted, the template has been given the wrong value which is why they are in the wrong category. To fix it, you can edit the page by clicking the edit button at the top-right of the page. When you do this, you should see a bunch of form fields. Change the one labeled "Faction" to the correct value and the category should be automatically changed. In the section lebeled "Free text", you will see the wikitext corresponding to the categories that were added manually. Remove the "[[Category:Decepticons]]" that was added when you added the category using the "Add category" button on the page.

      I really liked the game too. But as I said in my reply to your blog, I am not interested in dishing out money for TCGs at this time. I don't know if you will be able to extract the images or not. It depends on whether or not they were stored server-side. I am guessing they were because it would have required a lot of storage space to keep them on a mobile device. However, you are free to try. Casualkirk and I took screen shots of every card in the cyberdex before the game was shutdown. However, I have weapons only and Casualkirk has been busy with other things for some time now.

    • if im correct the page is starts from 331 featuring r8 soundwave

    • That is great. However, we are currently in the process of setting up a better way of doing it. So, for now, the cyberdex isn't ready to be updated. If you would like to know more about the changes we are making (or even why we are making them), I can tell you.

      I don't want to offend you or anything but since you are relatively new to the wiki, I just want to make sure we are on the same page. Per Casualkirk's comment on your wall, I suggest you view the Manual of Style if you have not already done so. This provides a standard naming scheme for card images meant for use on card pages. Card name conflicts are a fairly recent occurrence so we are still working on sorting that out with regards to image names. The cyberdex has yet to be standardized so, naturally, we are still working that out as well.

      Having a standard naming scheme is important because it makes managing the 5000+ images much easier. This is particularly important since the close of the game. We want to be able to return to this site at any time in the future without needing to re-sort through a tangled mess of pages and files.

      I you would like to know anything more about current or in progress standards for this wiki, let me know. Also, if you have any suggestions, please share them.

  • Not that it matters much at this point, but I think progress on the War Machine badge has not been incrementing correctly? Mine has been stuck at 444/500 for some time now.

    • I would say grossly difficult. The requirement for getting it is perfectly clear. I appreciate the sentiment though. What is unfair (but hasn't happened in a while) is when Wikia's servers are down for > 24 hours; forcing everyone's counters to reset.

    • Wow! It has been years and you will probably never see this. Or maybe you will since I know you have been on the wiki in the past few months. Either way, I finally did it! Today I finally received the "Wiki Hero!" badge for contributing 365 consecutive days to the wiki! It was for making some minor changes to Thundercracker (5) Weapon.

      There is still a lot to do in terms of cleaning things up and even more to do with all of the platform changes (both past, very near future, and future). However, it should all get done with time.

  • Hey guys. I am setting this up because I have had a recent look at the stats for this wiki. Unfortunately, despite having over 24,000,000 registered users, only 26 (including us) have been active in the last month. I don't know about the two of you, but that is really discouraging for me. I would guess most of the traffic went to the Facebook groups. I understand that the game is on its way out, but there are definitely more than 26 people still playing (and new people joining).

    1. As we all know, Casualkirk and I put significant effort into maintaining the content portion of the wiki. Often, it is just the two of us. While I do like the wiki, I think we must determine where to "draw the line". Is 23 other users significant enough; considering most of them only use the forums? I am not suggesting that we close or abandon the wiki. However, there comes a point where the effort is simply wasted.
    2. Should we engage the other users on this issue? Perhaps they could provide some help on figuring out how to get more traffic.
    3. Another thing to consider is that some people choose to use this wiki anonymously. I can understand why they may choose to do so (as I did in the beginning). However, this type of activity is not as well tracked by Wikia. If we could get these users to register, it would give us a more complete picture of what we are dealing with (good or bad).

    Comments, suggestions, opinions?

    EDIT:

    I don't know what is going on with the statistics page but now is says 7,000,000 registered users. Seems more reasonable but still pretty high.

  • Good catches on the SSfDK page. It was a bit messy trying to organize it all.  Funny how they originally explained that adding numbers to the cards were to help match character cards to their signature weapons.  Apparently, the reward weapons are not giving the signature weapon bonus with the signed reward cards.  Hope that gets patched.

      Loading editor
    • Yeah, I was just talking with Irongrid82 about the signature weapon issue. Perhaps someone should submit a ticket to Mobage? You have a really good point about the numbers thing. The initial intent has been entirely destroyed at this point. Also there are several mistakes that Mobage seems reluctant to fix. Overall, the intent was good but they apparently don't have the commitment to stick with it. Something interesting about this event was that they actually advertises Prowl (10) as the Advanced Operations card yet he never showed up anywhere in the event.

        Loading editor
    • Well, I suppose they've thrown the card numbering out the window on the current event. According to the rewards page, the matching weapon to Autobot Jazz (12) is Autobot Jazz (11) Weapon. But, we also have Autobot Jazz (13), whose matching weapon is Autobot Jazz (12) Weapon? Baffling.

        Loading editor
    • I noticed that as well. As long as there are no naming conflicts with current cards, we should be fine. Also, as far as I am aware, there is no manner in which to get unsigned cards. Is that correct?

        Loading editor
    • I was hoping they would show up in the rewards, but ultimately that didn't happen.

  • Scourge 3 BS Alt - Max Stats
    I saw you updated Scourge (4) .  This is my Lvl 80 Scourge (3).  This doesn't match the current Scourge (3) in the wiki.  I received the card from a gold medal.  Can you shed any light on this card?
      Loading editor
    • I am not certain but here is what I think. That Scourge (3) you have is the one associated with the new missions. If I recall correctly, Brockrb mentioned to me that Mobage named it the same as a previous episode card. Naming conflicts occur from time to time because of the various naming schemes Mobage has switched between. Not all cards can easily be converted and some are forgotten. This makes it a nighmare to try and organize all the card pages.
