Yes, that does help. But would it be possible for you to also check on Dirge and Cyclonus from the base set? I should have worded my question better but what I am primarily trying to find out is if we need more disambiguation pages.
I see. Wikia has been pretty aggressive about making changes since about the start of 2018. Of course, this results in lots of bugs (some big, some small). One of them seems to be related to staying logged in. And the reason I didn't get a notice earlier? Wikia changed it so that you get don't get notified when anons reply to threads. I am not sure why they did that.
To get back to the question I asked, the distinction is that bureaucrats can promote/demote users to/from more positions. As admins, we can only do this for chat and discussions moderators. If you are curious, you can check out Help:User rights. Godofcyanide is not the founder; DinoKev is. But any bureaucrat can promote us; it doesn't have to be the founder. If you are up for it and are still in regular (or semi-regular) contact with GoC, then it sounds like a good idea to ask him. I haven't had any contact with any of the other admin/bureaucrats since they stopped visiting this wiki; so my contact information for GoC might be outdated.
I made that assumption as well. However, I suspected something funny when the list never changed; even after some of those people hadn't been around for 1+ years. I did some digging and found out that "Active Users" was just the label given to the navigation bar. The magic word used is actually "topusers" which, as it sounds, does not necessarily mean active users. I am guessing it uses some formula that gives heavy weight to the number of edits one has made. That would explain how you and I got near the top and, in particular, why Brockrb is still listed first.
I suspect that this may be due to the update that was performed for Semantic MediaWiki, the extension that handles forms, properties, and page lists for our wiki. I have created a thread asking if anyone else has run into this issue as well as another I have encountered.
Thanks for checking into it. I'll look back and see if I can figure out when it first started. It happens on pages after I edit them through edit with form. Pages with the property already set to the original plain text 'yes' value continue to work.
In my estimation, the data in Shockwave (3) Weapon is correct. I don't have a record of any weapon that had basic stats of 113/95/68, as represented on the deleted version, so I don't believe any data has been lost.
Thanks for the reply. I saw that the specialization and classes were also different so I thought there might be a chance it actually was a different card. However, since you have no record of a weapon with those base stats, I'll assume the page deletion was appropriate.
No, unfortunately I am not in Canada. However, my father's side of the family is. I few years ago, we went up there to celebrate with them. We participated in the "living" flag event. Basically, cities all across Canada have a friendly competition to see whom can get the most people to form the Canadian flag by each wearing either a red or white shirt and standing in position.
That sounds great. I had to work. Our lab group had beamtime over the weekend at Argonne National Lab so we were there from June 30th till July 4th. But I did get to see some fireworks from the plane as we arrived home.
We shall see. One of our group members has already started trying to process the data but the program we typically use is giving us some trouble. We have been trying since Tuesday and still haven't found a solution. I guess that is what happens when you use open-source freeware.
So, unfortunately there is a limit that Wikia has on the number of transclusion levels a page can parse. This means we cannot view the entire cyberdex, all characters, or all weapons on a single page using our intended method. I do intend to look a little more for a solution but until then we will have to do without. I will fill in the new cyberdex a bit more so you can get a better idea of how things flow.
That is great! I was at 130 when it reset. The good news is that there is still plenty to do. So, an edit per day should get us most of the way there. It still stinks though. Like I have always said, if only there were a leniency policy (example, you can miss 1 out of 60 days), we both would have gotten 365 a long time ago.
I recently had an interesting experience. When I added character page 007, it didn't update properly. You could view the page but none of the other pages new it was there. I though the server was just being slow but I checked about 10 minutes ago and it was still missing. I then added 008 and it also did not know 007 existed.
I eventually deleted everything and refilled the page. It now works. I still have no idea it wasn't working before.
Yeah, they got rid of sites' individual login pages and replaced it with a global one. On full computers, it is a pop-up window and on mobile devices, it is a redirect. It used to be that login could be done either through a drop-down field on the Wikia navigation bar (where it now says "login or register") or Special:UserLogin. The special page is still recognized but immediately redirects to the global login. The drop-down field could be glitchy depending on your device-browser combination so I can see why they might get rid of that. However, the special page offered a simple form field entry method which I think would still be useful for devices that cannot properly render the new "sleek" layout. I suppose it is a trade-off though because the special page still had ads whereas the global login does not.
I have been trying to get into that habit as well.
I need to change some things about how the templates work. Something in one of Wikia's recent updates has changed how Semantic MediaWiki can be used. We might need to add another extension. However, that is a template issue so, the images could actually be added now. How far have you gotten on the card pages?
I noticed you have been taking care of some articles that are in Articles in need of investigation. As a reminder, some of them are there because it is suspected that content has been lost. So deleting them is not always the solution.
In those instances, I believed I had resolved any open issues on those pages. We can review any of those changes if they're still in question. If you'd prefer I left that category as-is, pending your sign-off, I can do that too, and alert you when I think that tag can be removed.
If all you are looking for are the images, Casualkirk should have them. Prior to game server shutdown, we obtained images on every card in the cyberdex.
Which episode was Sentinel Prime (2) in? It seems to be completely missing from our records. I have a hunch about Optimus Prime (9) and Soundwave (11). As for Starscream, which one are you talking about?
Well, we all knew this time was coming. I guess we have a little over a week to collect all the missing data we can. Do you think we should try to update/re-verify the information regarding decks for new accounts and tutorial missions?
I think so, but I don't know if it has changed. I started playing rather early so it is all accurate to what I experienced. As it is, I am keeping busy trying to capture the cyberdex. I didn't realize how many cards there are now.
So, obviously we shouldn't put our lives on hold for this but here is a list of nice-to-have's that would probably need to be gotten before the game closes. Please don't feel like I am pressuring you to do this. It is simply a list for if we have time. Honestly, I will probably only get to one or two of them myself at best. Given that it is just the two of us (mostly you right now), there is only so much we can get done. At least we will know what we don't have.
Intro: Verify no change; # of scans required for completion
Old: # of scans required for completion
New: All data
I have some but have not finished every single one
there are currently no pages for them as I was hoping to convert all battleground pages to use templates
That is all I can think of for now. There are some other aspects of the game I was hoping to capture but doing so requires observation over time. Obviously we don't have the time for that. If you think of anything else, place it in your response. If you want help prepping the cyberdex images, let me know.
So, I finally had a look at the cyberdex. I never actually used it the entire time the game was running. It looks like Phoenix8387 is the one who decided it would be best to use tabs. However, as you may have noticed, there are way too many pages now for the tabs to be effective. I was thinking we could reformat the organization? Maybe turn each page into an actual page on the wiki and then have links to the next and previous pages.
I see what you are saying. However, the single page has become quite monolithic in terms of management. If we did separate the pages, it would still be possible to jump to a page, it would just have to involve loading. On the other hand, viewing a single cyberdex page at a time would mean you don't have to load the whole cyberdex (900+ images) all at once. I am not too familiar with the tabber tag so before we make any final decisions, we probably want to look into that some more. If we want to keep it all on one page but make it easier to manage, we could separate it onto separate pages but simply transclude all of them on the main page and maintain the tabber format.
No, I had that same thought as well. The issue is that there are so many pages that one simply cannot fit enough tabs onto a single page if restricted to the linear layout. If you come up with other ideas, please let me know. Everything I have right now is just variations on this and the multiple page idea.
I am not entirely sure what you are asking. However, if you are referring to the need to dial-up the page, no. The issue of dialing-up the page arises from the limited page width. The only other alternative I can think of to that is having a really long horizontal scroll bar.
That being said, I haven't really explored tabview; it is just something I came across. Right now, it has the plus of matching the wiki's color scheme. It might be possible to do that with tabber but I would need to look into that.
The main difference between the two is that tabview does not take direct content. Any content taken by tabview must be in the form of a transcluded page. In contrast, tabber can take direct content; no need for additional pages. If we really want to keep it all on one page, then tabber is the only choice. However, I did some experimenting and it appears that transclusions are loaded all at once. Therefore, like a single page, tabber/tabview with transcluded pages does not need to be reloaded each time a new tab is selected.
It is my opinion that, either way, we should break the cyberdex into subpages. This would make it easier to manage. It is also worth noting that we will need a new template. The old character gallery template does not work with evolve characters and the evolve character gallery template is not compatible with the old one.
Oh, my question was whether you thought tabview can handle transcluding so many pages, but no pressure on that (or anything else, for that matter). Whichever method you think will both look best, and be less work to implement seems preferable, and hopefully, those factors are not exclusive. The new template needed would be in addition the tabbing method?
After Qedsa40's comment, I decided to check out the tabber format using a mobile browser. Apparently it is much different than the desktop format. Just so we both know, I suggest you take a look if you haven't already.
This would simplify the code for the page template. It could be done in at least 2 ways. First, as an embedded multiple instance template such as Mission in Battleground 2. You may also be interested in looking at the test and form pages. Note that these pages are not at their best since I have suspended work on them. Second, directly coded into the page template. This would keep the page template's fields as they are currently. It would also eliminate the need for embedded and multiple instance templates.
Moving card name to the top:
I structured the name placement to match the current format with the exception that the mode is listed on the following line rather than on the same line (this can be switched back). However, since a given row is for a single character, I was thinking that we could list the name once above the images and have just the mode listed below each image. I think this makes sense for the characters when considered alone. However, that format would not seem logical for weapons and we might want to keep caption/label formatting consistent between the two.
I have an idea for the cyberdex. How about we offer an option between viewing individual pages and transcluding all of them at once? That way, devices with less memory won't hang trying to load all the pages at once.
Alt4682 and Tez2099 would like to know if you are interested on team wiki jump on the next tvt. We are trying to rally up some of the members who are left. We know you are on team elite, but we are checking to see if you are interested this one time.
