Hey Reaper. Things have been slow recently; the war has stalled and the thread has closed down without a new one to take its place. You've been a great friend over the years, and I'd hate to lose you now, so I once again ask you to please join the Discord server we've set up. Here's the invite again.
We are very active and talk daily; and although I find it unfortunate that it may have replaced our forum-based adventures, it's a greatly convenient means of communication. Please create an account if you haven't already to at least establish a link to our server or our members. If you're uninterested in our conversations you can simply mute the entire server, and we'll ping you should something you deem relevant comes up.
Hi, I have my own Wiki and I have looked at Pacific Rim Wiki home page and it has puctures of Kaiju and Jaegers and characters. How do I add them on my Wiki as my Wiki is a total mess and I have only recently joined FANDOM.
Hi! I'm Luqgreg, a member of Vanguard team. We're users who volunteer to help communities adopt to new technologies and features, like content portability. We've identified Pacific Rim Wiki as a high priority for introducing the Portable Infobox tool, which has a lot of benefits for your community. As you can see here, diffrences between them are very minor. I'd like to work to update the Infobox templates so that they can be accessible on any current and future platform. Maintaining them if you want to make changes should be very simple.
We'd really like to get working on your community, but we would appreciate your go-ahead. Also, if you have any questions, or this is the wrong place for this kind of a discussion, please let me know. Thanks!
Hello, Reaper, I am from The Custom Pacific Rim Wikia , and I am inquiring if you might, by any chance be in interested in joining. For we are in need of people like you, with the everlasting passion for Pacific rim. :D
While I have no real business answering for Reaper, I feel it might be prudent to say direct advertising is not allowed on the wiki, even in message boards.
You CAN, however, formally request affiliation between the two wikis. This would allow easier contact and cross-promotion, effectively allowing the userbases of both wikis to be pooled, refreshing eachother, in the way of symbiosis.
Again, I do not have the authority to agree or disagree, but in my personal opinion, It might be a good business move for both wikis.
That being said, you may also want to request affiliation with other prior affiliates of this wiki, considering your currently small userbase on your wiki. You can find a list here.
Given the issue is none too uncommon here, as it seems, you might wanna take a look at adding some custom js addons, good examples of which you can find at dev.wikia.com. Two concrete examples would be:
LockOldBlogs - Which, as the name would suggest, disables commenting on blogs older than a set period of time (read up on how to adjust).
LockForums - Pretty much the same as above, but lock forums under the Thread: namespace, as in the new forums where we host WotW and other discussions.
By Chat Topic I mean the "Entering the Rift" line that pops up when you enter chat. I notice it isn't working properly and thougjt I might make myself useful and explain how to fix it, in the event that you don't already know and just haven't gotten around to it.
You probably know what system messages are, but if you don't you can access it via Special:AllMessages.
The specific page we're looking for is MediaWiki:Chat-welcome-message. For whatever reason, the text displays fine here, but not in chat. Usually you can fix this by closing the tag after the message. In this case, however it wouldn't work. From what I can tell, it's because it doesn't recognize the Font-face tag. Remove that tag and it might go back to working properly.
To the specific font you want, font-face doesn't work, so to fix this: append ( font-family: impact ) after the last semicolon in the div tag. Speaking of which I notice there's more than one. You may want to combine them in order to prevent further conflicts.
Hopefully it works, but if it doesn't I'll get back to you with more info.
