User Admin[edit source]

Hey Game widow; Can I please add a few of the RT crew modders to the wiki admin. Both Fernthedog and Cargo_Vroom are our modders who have kindly put their hand up to help me out on the wiki; and fortunately have discovered the wonderful world of wiki editing which has now consumed their lives. Schism (talk) 16:21, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Done — Game widow ( talk ) 17:21, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
Sorry to bother you again, i have a new victim to punish from the RT crew, user:Ciross1 & user:Bhechinger who is going to be automating some json file with some voodoo and maths, and skynet will be born, any chance you could offer them a life sentence to the wiki ^_^

Welcome[edit source]

I've just given you admin rights on the wiki ~!— Game widow ( talk )

Ohai GW; I was wondering if it would be possible to view information such at page views and for the lovely RT wiki Schism (talk) 15:52, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
Have you looked at Special:Analytics ? — Game widow ( talk ) 15:53, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
That would be the one xD ty Schism (talk) 15:59, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Main page[edit source]

If you don't mind, i can make a nicer looking main page for you and you could concentrate on the actual wiki content. Main pages should be an introduction to the content, not the actual content — Game widow ( talk ) 11:20, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Here is the proposed new main page layout. What do you think? — Game widow ( talk ) 19:03, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Faction logos[edit source]

You should really upload png versions of those faction logos with transparent backgrounds. The white background looks terrible on a dark-themed wiki — Game widow ( talk ) 11:22, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Sure if your happy to make a nicer looking page as thats my main gripe atm, i can surely use the time for making the pages, info and stuff which will link with all the other stuff. As for the logos, some were just slapped in there, but ill get our arts designer to make them prettier and more suitable for wiki
Cool, i have to run some errands right now, but later today i will make the main page nicer. So, you'd like the factions, clans and what else mentioned ? are there weapons ? locations? — Game widow ( talk ) 11:41, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
There is locations; mechs; weapons; etc and we have started to touch on them > > and we have this, and now that the online map is about to go live with the newest discord only version testing i know people in the community want to subscribe to their fav faction/clan and it can be more of a coordinated effort with the other people. It is a huge amount of work to get that all set up and also keep up with the mods progress so at the moment i am just dumping data onto the wiki and then will go thru the pages. >>> As for the main page i think the install instructions, guides, and FAQ/known bugs page are the most important for the first time peeps so then the deeper more game impacting items / factions etc will be also there but i dont think it is main page material, but just a nav bar with them and stuff.

Content sections[edit source]

I made you a content navigation template, that way, if you want to change that section, you only change the template and all the pages are automatically updated. You can find it here and to use it just use {{Content nav}}Game widow ( talk ) 15:43, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

My plebs are so pleased with how your helping us, and one comment I received is not all heroes wear capes #Game Widow xD, Mate thank you very much for your help ^_^ Schism (talk) 15:52, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
Aw shucks, thanks :) and you're welcome — Game widow ( talk ) 18:30, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Sidebar[edit source]

Those links on the left side of the wiki. Those can be edited by changing this file: Mediawiki:SidebarGame widow ( talk ) 16:25, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Sweet thank you, I think i ran into weird problem when i tried to add a info bar, it would just display the picture and all the other info i had in there wasnt showing up.
{| class="infobox"
! colspan="2" class="infoboxname" | {{{name|{{PAGENAME}}}}}
{{#if: {{{image|}}} | ! colspan="2" {{!}} [[File:{{{image}}}|250x250px|{{{name|{{PAGENAME}}}}}]] | [[Category:Infoboxes lacking images]] }}
! colspan="2" class="infoboxdescription" | Details 
{{#if: {{{race|}}} | {{!}} class="infoboxlabel" style="width:40%" {{!}} Race {{!!}} {{{race}}} }}
{{#if: {{{location|}}} | {{!}} class="infoboxlabel" {{!}} Location(s) {{!!}} {{{location}}} }}
{{#if: {{{source|}}} | {{!}} class="infoboxlabel" {{!}} Source {{!!}} {{{source}}} }}
{{#if: {{{reward|}}} | {{!}} class="infoboxlabel" {{!}} Reward {{!!}} {{{reward}}} }}
{{#if: {{{related|}}} | {{!}} class="infoboxlabel" {{!}} Related {{!!}} {{{related}}} }}
{{#if: {{{ID|}}} | {{!}} class="infoboxlabel" {{!}} ID {{!!}} {{{ID}}} }}

So idk what I managed to break but i am good at doing it apparently. Thanks Schism (talk) 17:24, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Looks like you were working on the infobox. Just let me know what fields you'd like and I can get that up and working for you. Also, if you want a few different kinds, that's easily done too — Game widow ( talk ) 17:36, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
The one i wanted to do was just for the faction/clans at the moment, i think a bit later down the track i might get a few more in but still working out the logistics to see if it is possible to capture the data from our online map and if so we do a inter html or a widget that can use said info, and then we can have star system data and map info and players etc.. << >> anyways the infobox i was working on i think would be best layed out like this faction | shortname | Image | government | allies | foes | star systems Schism (talk) 17:45, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
Something like this? Template:Infobox_faction, or horizontally laid out ? — Game widow ( talk ) 18:18, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
vertical is perfect, it can replace my horrible table i made, cheers, thanks mate Schism (talk) 03:24, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Images in css[edit source]

For your test bg, you'd have to use url(/media/4/47/Testbackground.jpg) - to figure that out, you can use the "filepath" magic word, like this {{filepath|Testbackground.jpg}}, which would give: , you can then replace the bit with just /mediaGame widow ( talk ) 14:07, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

// Cheers thanks for that, I have set out a challenge for those on our discord so the winner gets the wiki background, but i thought id first test it out hehe, I figured i didnt need the version info in there either but well the goat test was successful on my 2nd attempt at least. But the magicword will make it a bit easier. cheers Schism (talk) 14:15, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

Blocking IPs[edit source]

Hey! Just to let you know, I have reblocked an IP address you have recently blocked as the block time was set as indefinite which is against Gamepedia policies on blocking. IPs should never be blocked for indefinite time, 2 weeks is often enough. Users can be blocked for indefinite time though. No more actions are required on your part, just keep the policy in mind for the future :) Frisk (talk) 15:01, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

Hey Frisk is there a way to make it so edits from non logged in ip's or unknown members to be protected until approved / patrolled? Thanks Schism (talk) 03:07, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Yes, there is. You can ask your wiki manager to install Approved Revs extension on the wiki. However, this is often considered a rather radical change and people are usually asked to fix the issue of vandalism in other means (Abuse Filters, mode administration etc.). But know this is an option and you are free to ask your wiki manager to look into it! Frisk (talk) 10:05, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
