Last Epoch Wiki:Admin Noticeboard

From Last Epoch Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Admin noticeboard is one way through which users can notify Administrators of issues needing administrative attention. While users are welcome to directly contact specific administrators (especially if they are seen to be active), posting here can be an easier and quicker way of ensuring that at least one admin will notice an issue and respond to it promptly. Remember to sign (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues. Please post discussions on the talk page.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here. Deletion requests should be made by adding {{delete|reason for deletion request}} to the top of the target page, which will then automatically mark the page as a candidate for deletion.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comment instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made once a resolution could not be reached between users.
  • For issues regarding the use of this wiki, please see our help center.

In case of vandalism, posting about it here is low priority. Revert it first, anyone can do so. If the vandal created a new page, tag it for deletion. Assume good faith and consider leaving a message on that user's talk page to explain the reason. Post here only if the user has made several disruptive edits and/or persists despite a warning. Always avoid a revert war with the vandal; it is far better to wait until an admin has a chance to intervene. If a user must be reported here, please use {{user}}, preferably as the topic subject/headline.

Current Issues[edit source]

Adding new extensions to wiki[edit source]

As User:Arborus pointed out on User:Wagnike2's profile, we'd be interested in having the Labeled Section Transclusion extension added to this Wiki to help with generating content for Category:Items pages.

Additionally these are some of the other approved extensions that I believe will be helpful in creating content for more pages down the road.

  • DynamicPageList3
  • ImageMap
  • EasyTimeline
  • Replace_Text
  • Thanks
  • Scribunto

Thanks for consideration! --GeoGalvanic (talk | testspace) 04:56, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Labeled Section Transclusion should already be enabled. I'll look into the other extensions today. - Wagnike2 (talk) 12:53, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
    • All these extensions should be enabled except for EasyTimeline, which isn't an extension that we have on Gamepedia currently. - Wagnike2 (talk) 01:16, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
Awesome! Thanks --GeoGalvanic (talk | testspace) 01:22, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

Additional Requests 01-06-2018[edit source]

Here are some additional requests for extensions which I believe would be useful.

  • gphelp:Extension:StrawPoll - For making polls on the wiki to help decide amongst users on styling decisions in a democratic manner. AJAXPolls would be preferred, since it associates voters with user data and it would be better for record keeping, however since it is currently disabled StrawPoll would accomplish the same effect.
  • gphelp:Extension:Drafts - Some of the pages can be very long or require significant reworks/editing. It may someday prove useful to have backups in case of unpredictable events.
  • TippingOver - To use in combination with the ImageMap to create better looking interactive skill trees, such as the one found here. Additionally it will be useful for displaying information from both skills and items, and can probably also be used in other places.
    • It would be desirable to create a namespace for tooltips (Tooltip:), and updating MediaWiki:To-tooltip-page-name accordingly, or else linking them to the template namespace, using Template:$1/Tooltip
    • Performance Concerns: There are several pages using DPL3 and transcluded templates, such as Skills, to generate a large number of links/data. To avoid potential performance issues it would be appropriate to use the setting $wgtoPageTitleParse to TO_DO_LATE, with this setting it would also be desirable to use the setting $wgtoExistsCheck will need to be set to TO_DO_LATE.
  • gphelp:Extension:Tabber - Also for use in combination with ImageMap and TippingOver in interactive skill trees so as to create multiple "size options" without needing to rely on creating several intensive templates. I've included the settings from the "Considerations" link with border/background colors appropriate for our wiki here
  • mediawikiwiki:Extension:Page Forms - Data for skills and items are stored in templates. Currently they are editable to the end user via links to their template pages. Page Forms may be a more user friendly alternative.

Thanks again for consideration --GeoGalvanic (talk | testspace) 08:03, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

After talking to some other Gamepedia contributors, I'd also like to request the gphelp:Extension:Cargo as it may have better performance than using DPL + templates for tables. --GeoGalvanic (talk | testspace) 14:04, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
All extensions should be enabled minus Random in Category which isn't enabled. - Wagnike2 (talk) 21:41, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

Request for Maps Extension[edit source]

  • mediawikiwiki:Extension:Maps - The imagemap extension is more limited than I had originally anticipated (there's no way to format the text on hovering). Looking into the maps extension, it seems possible to create much more dynamic image maps using the openlayers service. --GeoGalvanic (talk | testspace) 21:04, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Header Issue[edit source]

This Image shows the issue with the current logo/header. It only affects browsers at low width, but the logo prevents people from clicking on the view and edit buttons. The issue is even more problematic for users that have View Edit enabled. User:Arborus's idea was to move the search bar above the buttons, like in the Path of Exile Wiki.--GeoGalvanic (talk | testspace) 22:55, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

I’m planning on replacing the logo image which will mitigate the issue, though probably not resolve it entirely. — sarno | TALK | 23:34, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
Having looked into it more, that likely wouldn't have an appreciable impact. — sarno | TALK | 21:28, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Solution[edit source]

The MediaWiki:Hydradark.css needs to be edited.

Add height: 90px to #mw-head-base. It should look like this.

 #mw-head-base {
   background: transparent;
   background-image: none;
   border-bottom: 0px;
   height: 90px
}

Change #left-navigation and #right-navigation margin-top from 150px -> 175px. They should look like this.

#left-navigation {
   margin-top: 175px;
}

#right-navigation {
   margin-right: 5px;
   margin-top: 175px;
}

Needs Bureaucrat+ to edit it. --GeoGalvanic (talk | testspace) 17:34, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Show preview bug[edit source]

Clicking the show preview button on the edit screen causes a recursive loop of the page refreshing itself. --GeoGalvanic (talk | testspace) 19:32, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Cannot reproduce. Browser & version? — sarno | TALK | 19:33, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
Running Chromium64, I've confirmed that it only shows up in this browser (on every gamepedia site), and not on google chrome or firefox. hmmmmm... --GeoGalvanic (talk | testspace) 19:40, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

A discussion about this page, and how it is used, has been posted on Last Epoch Wiki talk:Community Portal[edit source]

Here's the link for anyone interested. :) — sarno | TALK | 10:42, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
