So, I want to embed links [google.com like this] (how it's done when editing a page) in comments and message walls but I can't seem to find out how to do it. I know it's possible, just need to know how.
Im an admin on a wiki and people keep making inappropriate/racist comments on a few articles, so if someone could tell me how to disable comments on a specific page, without disabling comments on all pages, it would be appreciated
There's this very annoying thread that people kept replying to, it's spamming my messages. The thread is just about a stupid gender war, but people have been swearing about that thing, while I just don't want my notifications spammed anymore.
Should I report this to FANDOM Zendesk too, by the way?
What do you do if you accidentally report your own comment/reply/message whilst trying to edit it? I've faced with it once and it didn't end very well, any idea what to do?
It looks like they finally added a "hide deleted" toggle for admins for article and blog comments too - defaulted to hidden like for Discussions and walls.
But it also look like now admins can't view individual deleted comment threads, even with a direct link.
Even if a wiki does not have /f enabled, there is an option to report article comments that generate a log based on /f/reported. So... Is there any other way to check the reported content on such wikis outside of /f? If not, I might just hide the report option on comments to avoid false expectations by users.
My post is about comments that users can leave on pages. We've all seen them, some are good with a person's thoughtful insight to an article topic or mentioning how something isn't' quite right, missing with the text/layout on the page, some are bad with people swearing, or posting links that go off somewhere else and some are just ugly with people posting 'YEAH BOZ!!!!' or some other non-relevant topic. There's also the issue that some posts a topic, with an account or anonymous, and then that comment remains for eternity regardless of content.
I would like to see Fandom introduce a process that lets comments get auto removed after a year. Hear me out!! I know, people will say "why a year, why not x months or x years, or why not a variable" or "comments allow free speech and should not be cracked down" or "comments serve zero purposes, just disable"
I see comments as a way for someone to give insight to an article such as saying the information is missing or the layout needs work.... if the person doesn't feel up to the task of editing the page, a suitable editor can take that comment, do what's needed and then (if permissions allow) remove the comment. If they don't have permissions or what the person has said is not going ahead, in a year it'll be gone. If the person says something "bad", and an admin doesn't get notified, it will go eventually. if the comment is irrelevant it will go eventually. However leaving it for a period allows further discussion and if need be, the Talk page can be used.
I've come across pages on various wikis were the last (sometimes only) comment was made by someone 10 years ago and says "I like this article". The person is long gone. Do we *really* need this? Or where a comment was made 5 years ago by someone saying "this table is out of date, the game has been updated" or "the episode list is not full, there are another 2 seasons of tv shows" and yet the content may have been updated several times.... these comments are no longer needed but asking admins to chase this up is impossible. A yearly removal would cause this issue to take care of itself.
In my mind (scary place, don't' spend too much time there) every comment has posted date. Why not simply set a system that removes a comment date + 365 days (yes ignore leap years and alternate calendar systems)
I submit this post for discussion and hope that it's considered.
Why are comments I deleted on my own wiki are still visible? They should be gone completely! Why does UCP have too many changes? But the comments I deleted should be gone because of reasons such as hurtful ones, vulgar ones, and vise versa. What do I need to do to completely delete or hide those hurtful comments I deleted?
An anonymous user submitted a vulgar comment on the day it shows and I do not like it. I don't like profanity. I tried the options, but nothing is helping. I need to report this dang change for cripes sake.
Just to be sure:
Action type "Locked" is related to Discussions only, and not to article comments (as there is no way to lock a comment on article), right?
Since badges are on UCP platform and on UCP since messages and comments don’t count as contributions anymore and since you have to contribute to get badges the social badges are no longer earned unless fandom updates the activity. And on a legacy wiki with achievements people used to get lucky badges during conversations on message walls and now on UCP users don’t get lucky badges during conversations. If a new user on a wiki comments on a blog post or messages someone’s wall they won’t get the badge since messages and comments don’t count as contributions anymore.
Now let’s get into keeping your badge streak up when messages and comments don’t count as contributions anymore on UCP.
It sucks when messages and comments don’t count as contributions anymore. When messages and comments don’t count as contributions anymore commenting and leaving messages is no longer fun since you can’t keep your badge streak up by leaving messages and comments. And to keep your badge streak up you have to make productive edits on articles or edit your userpage or your sandbox or your blog post everyday to keep your badge streak up. But if you basically edit your sandbox/ userpage/ blog post everyday to keep your badge streak on UCP you could ending getting warned by administrator on a wiki for edit farming. And instead of editing your userpage/ sandbox/ blog post everyday to keep your badge streak up, you have to make good edits on articles and I can’t make productive edits on articles because my grammar is bad. My edits are useless because of my bad grammar. And sorry for bad grammar my grammar is bad.
filter comments based on their length?
Because of my antics and my commonly long "essays" that are actually just pretty short comments (but I tell ya - logicians waste no time wasting a lot of time), we want to enforce a rule about comment length. Oh, and this is being posted while the new commenting system is underway. Is there a simple way to do this rather than have the (human) moderators (and commenters) paste every comment into a character counter?
Is that a new feature, a beta test, or a bug?
If it is a new feature, what do you think about it?
I've seen it disturbing the screen position for some link to specific section (anchor links). The browser is trying to find the y position of that section, but in the middle of the process, the total height of the page grows due to the insertion of the comments, and the screen stops at a very weird position. You have that feeling of "What the heck did I click on? What am I doing here?"
Hi, it seems I've encountered a problem in our fandom where I have no idea what's causing this to occur, which is involving user's name being highlighted in comment. One of our fandom gang did not get affected by CSS scripts/codes as anyone else in the gang, Here's one of the example -
I hope anyone of you can assist me problem here, TQ.
Today I was undoing a vandalistic edit when the editor suddenly told me the edit was already undone and the log showed that somehow I had locked comments to administators only.
I can't find any option to change the comments' status and other forums I found said this feature isn't available on an article by article basis in Fandom.
I'd also like to point out that even as a sysop I cannot comment on that page and all other pages in the wiki are fine.
Any suggestions on how to fix this?
Is there a way to see the most recent comments? - I am using UCP wiki. All I can see is "Recent Changes" and I do not see recent comments from there. I also do not want to change my email settings to receive any emails. I would like to be able to read/respond to comments without having to visit every page individually!
