Thanks, I'll update this! Edit: Wasn't able to access that playlist as most of those episodes are also blocked or removed. It's the same reason why the link currently on the main page doesn't have anything anymore- copyright claims.
Oh and just posting this here as I was going through the recent edits; quote sections on character articles don't use the quote template. The template is only used to head up an article with a prominent quote from the/a character.
Hi Blue, since no one is currently active I want to reqest adminship since I am currently working on this wiki. I posted a detailed blog post in this wiki so other community members who might be active can weigh in.
Not sure why but comments appear to be disable on your blog so I'll leave my reply here.
Being an admin is nothing special, it simply gives you some extra tools for maintenance tasks and protecting a wiki from vandalism (even then, regular users can still help in both of these). An admin is not "in charge", nor is anyone really- wikis are a collaboration from everyone. You're doing great work so far on the wiki and can keep doing so without admin tools as I'm here should any of those small tasks need doing.
That said, the path to being a wiki admin comes from regular editing as well as connecting with the community present on said wiki. I realise our community is rather small, but we do get visiting editors from time to time- I'm aware at the moment you're also still learning the current Styling and I recommend also taking a look at new ideas from the perspective of asking others rather than trying to push your own changes across, if that makes sense?
My final thoughts are currently a no for the request of admin tools, but only for now. I think in time and with progress, you show great potential to be trusted with these additional tools :)
Yes you are right, being an admin on wikis is not really "in-charge". I guess I can try explaining why I wanted acces to admin tools. I'd like to look at js and css capabilites the wikia allows to customize though both of them require you to be admin. The plans I had in mind was add a "Add to Home Screen" feature for this wiki; see this blog's first paragraph for info on this feature though sounds pretty self-explantory: https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/app-install-banners/.
Ah okay, thank you for explaining. I'm not sure if a wiki can take on that kind of coding, I know there are some limitations to the js here- I recommend creating yourself a sandbox wiki where you can test and practice these things as much as you like and see how it goes.
But yes, your comment does bring me back to my previous one where I highlighted that practice of discussion will come in time- so taking this and the other changes you are wanting to do for example, while the community is just the 2 of us at this stage, you're not discussing your ideas with me but rather asking me to implement them straight away and when I didn't do this, you applied to get admin rights to do it yourself. Collaboration is at the heart of all wikis, and I'd love to see more of your ideas as we progress in this together :)
Hi, So I work on some design for this dragon booster wiki. For now I only did some minor work but it make the site more visually appealing. I changed the font and tweaked the design of the topic bars on main page (the ones that say "About Me" or other).
Hi and welcome to the wiki! Thanks for your work so far. Do you happen to have a screenshot example of what this would look like before changes are made? Changes should be consulted with the wiki as a whole, even if our community is rather limited :)
With regards to your work on Episode pages, please follow the Style already set out by earlier episode pages. In general, it's always best to follow the style of articles already created rather than create your own as it causes inconsistencies across the wiki.
Hi and thanks for getting back to me on this! Sadly I don't have as much time as I used to to dedicate to this place. I have a background in coding so getting it installed won't be an issue, I'm just struggling to see a difference at this stage but I'll look it over with some time and integrate it with code already present.
Sooo... I saw about three discussions and couldn't find anymore. When I got here (And I'm only looking now cuz I promised to write a fanfic for someone and needed research details without rewatching all the episodes, I am unfortunately not a big editor or anything... sorry) no one was chatting and I have some thing to ask people who like this fandom. Its not got anything to do with editing pages or improving (sorry) but I do think its relevant to everyone who liked this show (and still does) and I would like their opinions. I also need some info that I'm not sure where else to find (yall are probably dragon booster ologists with how much you know). Is it okay for me to post a discussion? Is that okay etiquette? Would yall mind?
Hi there! Sorry this is late, I only just got a notification from Wikia. You're more than welcome to post on the wiki forums to get a discussion going, though it might not be very active (as you can kind of tell from the rest of the wiki). Alternatively, you can always try the Academy Forums though even they're a bit quiet at the moment too. Hope this helps!
I see we're both on the Elder Scrolls one. I'm just here to get the spelling of a few names for Chapter Fourteen (namely Vysox and Armeggaddon) for the story. My bf met a guy today that's a huge fan of my work, and of DB in general. Anyways, figured I'd just see how you're doing-keep up the good work and feel free to chime in over on deviantART about your thoughts on the story!
Ah, very cool! I'm the Guild Master of the Skyrim Guild now (hence more work), you should join me there and help build up some of the Skyrim articles :D Thanks, you too! You should consider posting some of your work under your Wiki Blog here so it reaches more people & DB fans :)
Each user on the wiki has their own personal blog- you're allowed to post whatever you like on it (so long as it doesn't violate wikia TOS so no copyrighted or bad stuff). You certainly don't need my permission to do so ;) When you go to view your profile, look at the little tabs just under your profile box that say "Profile" and "Message Wall". There'll be one saying "Blog". Go to that and post to your heart's content~
Yeah...I have zutara1994 on dA keeping on me about contiuing the story-the girl's a rabid Moordryd fan like myself. It'll be about 5 chapters I've gotten up in the last two weeks when 14 gets posted. My best friend (and boyfriend) and I were chatting earlier about ideas on what could happen-I'm still writing as well as typing this out-we're thinking a transformation of sorts, but figuring out just how that's going to happen is a real case of scalers-we got headaches from it.
Please do not create any articles for the time being as I'm in the process of trying to clean up the current articles, and can't be tailing behind to fix new ones as well. I'll get to those images in a while, thanks!
WOW you're doing it again- you've been spamming the Wiki with more duplicate files! I've had enough of your nonesense. I don't know if you're a troll or you genuinely have problems but I've had enough- I'm formally requesting you cease editing on the Wiki or I will personally ban you. You are vandalising and spamming the Wiki even after multiple attempts of me trying to explain to you what you have done wrong.
You just said on Central Wiki that you were leaving the Wiki and now you are editing again? I'm sorry, but I've given you a multitude of opportunities to cease and desist your vandalism. You are banned from this Wiki.
Those are some beautiful images!! I'll be certain to include them in the revamp I have planned for the main page!
Edit: I've added that first one to the front page because it just looks awesome with it, but I will work both of them into a feature banner eventually that will include the quote on it, and other bits, that'll span a lot wider and make a big impact. Thanks so much again for the resources!!
Oh btw I've got a decent handle on the categories now, so this should help you in seeing what characters need more pictures/info: http://dragonbooster.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Characters I think the ones in most need of attention in terms of pictures were Shadow Booster + Vysox-Decepshun, Phorrj, Furox, Cyrano, Abandonn, Libris, T. Pax, Rivett and Samurox.
Most of them are staying, but some of them are simply being replaced by better quality ones. And you're not re-uploading your own either; you're saving the new file we uploaded and then re-uploading it in your name. That's very rude and unfair to other editors, as well as flooding the Wiki's photo space with duplicate files. Also, I might remind you that they technically do not belong to you- those images belong to Nerd Corps/Story Hat. It doesn't matter who's name the file's under, so long as the file is there. And the files are there so please stop uploading pictures we already have (and you keep uploading your same extra file multiple times too- please stop that as well).
No it wasn't, your original images had large white spaces all around the outside- that's why we are cropping and re-uploading them. The new one's you're uploading, claiming it was your old ones, are the same as ours; cropped. You are aware that I'm an admin here right?
What if they were different sized? Is that still the same? To more spefic Mine were jpg and others are png. I can't put my jpg's back on? How can I make them completely different? I don't like dulpicates either I know. I'll need your help. I don't know you and you don't know me.
Yes that is still the same! If it's showing the same picture, it's the same picture. I don't know how else to explain that to you. Also I might add that .png pictures are of better quality than .jpg in general.
Ok calm down. I thought of a comprimise how this then? I'll stop putting the jpg's back on. I'll orginally as I've seen everyone do load new version of an image. Same pic, no dulpicating no fight. I can still load and you'll have a clean wiki.
What is it that you want to do then? What I'm trying to say is, for example, that there is a picture of Shock-Ra there and if you want to upload another picture of Shock-Ra, it needs to be different to the ones already there. That means the picture has to be showing something that those pictures aren't already showing. It can't be the same Shock-Ra posing like that. Maybe you could get a screenshot of Shock-Ra running in the TV show? That would be fine because the pictures are different, they show something different. Uploading a "new version" of a picture you have already uploaded in the past is not ok- that is duplicating a file. Uploading a "new version" of a picture someone else has already uploaded is not ok- that is duplicating a file.
No if that was it that would be totally not be right at all would it? It's just they're favorite dragons and I really liked when I loaded those pics. I was just hoping they would stay. They belong to me I can't deny, but I was the first to load them on here. I kinda hoping you'd like them too. If it was cause of the image not being under my name you'd be steamed about right? Trust me I heard it before and it is not ok.
Sorry, I struggle to understand you sometimes. We appreciate that you first uploaded those pictures, but we've now uploaded revised, or better, versions of those images. Downloading those images and re-uploading them under your name is just petty and rude to the other editors. The picture is still there, and it always will be there; those pictures will stay on the Wiki. They are just not under your name anymore, but it's essentially the same picture. The only reason I see that you are making a fuss over this, considering the images are the same, is because the image is now no longer under your name.
Yes, be honest with me. If all this trouble really has been because you want the file under your name, I need to point out that you are coming across as very childish to the rest of us, and ask that you stop this behaviour and simply adapt to how the Wiki is. I've worked very hard on this Wiki and it's my duty to protect it from spammers and vandalisers- if you don't stop this 'trying to put files under your name' behaviour, I will have to politely ask you to leave or you will face being banned.
