Well, they have a good reason- you don't want some cool admin to add a FNAF gif that will cause everyone who watches it a heart attack. Only MLP gifs are allowed!
Not on all wikis.
They strangely blocked off the Mediawiki page to administrators. I asked about the page being blocked, but no one has cared to shed light on it. I mean, if some Mediawikis are being allowed to admins, that page should be one of them.
Since the beginning of time, MediaWiki pages have always been locked to sysops. That I'm fine with. What I'm not fine with is peer reviewing every single change to the code in order to ensure well-known and functional code works.
Also, there were 3-4 more wikis that were attacked.
Mine was attacked, and I still highly disagree with this. As I said, Wikia is more focused on fixing things that were never problematic to begin with versus things that need to be fixed.
Wow, it's really sad that my comic is getting more likes than the thread itself.
The MediaWiki namespace restrictions should be gone once the Verbatim extension, which is a security issue by design, is sorted:
With regards to the Verbatim extension, we are currently running analytics to determine the most common use cases of the tool as it stands today. The goal is to ultimately turn these big needs from being used in the catch-all solution of Verbatim to a more secure, structured, and built-out tool.
Thanks for that. If anything, I just want our liberties to be respected. I'm not asking for a trip to the moon here.
In other words, we are going to blacklist the editing of pages when they're merely text, forcing us to go back to default or keep things as they are without ever being able to change them again. Do we really want to see threadmoderators be called "moderators"? Why can't we just customize our wiki the way we want?
Relevant comic (do not quote):
You can disable personal css with
?useusercss=0 parameter, and css from these pages shouldn't be applied while editing them too – just add
?action=edit to the url. Imo code review on personal pages will add unnecessary work for reviewers.
I never knew that. Thanks!
Is codeeditor a different usergroup that bureaucrats can toggle to edit code page? I'm up for that, actually.
We are working to remove restrictions on personal JS pages as well.
Please be aware that our plans are fluid, and the list here is not exhaustive - we definitely welcome feedback as we work on various fronts.
Do you mind blacklisting MediaWiki pages to not edit? That works better when custom MediaWiki pages are made that must be constantly updated.
Stop making unnecessary and destructive changes to things that weren't broken to begin with.
Line spacing there is broken. Unfixed. I can't customize my toolbar on Chrome for some reason. Unfixed. And yet we're getting updates to stuff that wasn't problematic to begin with. I don't even...
And CSS pages. And why not have a blacklist of uneditable pages? Pages like this one are still locked despite being perfectly fine as such?
I hope that isn't the case.
Also, I hope Twitter won't be forced to be used wtih verbatim code. My firewalls block Twitter, disabling verbatim code on accident!!!
It's all fixed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7vecVGepyE
Muppet Wiki works, Logopedia works, Plants vs. Zombies Wiki is broken. (censored)
OK. Thank you!
I meant importing everything on say, MediaWiki:Emoticons/smiley on MediaWiki:Emoticons
Thanks! Can it work for multiple pages in one wikia?
Also, do I put that in a CSS page or what?
Oh, what do you mean?
Importing one page in a wiki to another.
