Re: Greetings (StarCraft wiki) Edit

First of all, I really appreciate the offer.

Second of all, umm... help!

I'm the top admin simply because I'm one of the top two or three contributors (in terms of quantity; quality if another matter). I'm not a computer person as such and know nothing about backgrounds, transparencies, or any such technical issues. I can't even make decent templates without a lot of hand-holding. Pretty much any technical change to the StarCraft wiki was from when Angie, Kirkburn or someone else came along and changed things for me.

I noticed the white-on-white links but hardly paid attention (I usually use the black/blue-on-white skin) and have no idea how to fix that. PsiSeveredHead 23:04, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

I was just playing around with the new skin again and noticed many templates, such as template: unitbox, don't display the text properly. (Same color text and background.)

If you can show me how to fix that, I can fix all those templates. PsiSeveredHead 23:00, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes, please show me that. Anything to make the wiki look better :) By the way, will that have any impact on visitors who don't use the gaming skin? PsiSeveredHead 00:01, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Just one more thing (I hope)...

On the white backgrounds, the blue links are pretty hard to read. Otherwise it's working great. PsiSeveredHead 00:56, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks to your help, and stumbling upon the search for templates page, I've been able to edit the templates so they can be read on either skin.

Except for the scroll box template. I edited that one so it would always have a white background and black text, since it the example on the Karune page uses lots of blue text (hard to read on the dark background) but the section titles are always white (which, needless to say, makes them invisible on a white background). Do you know of a way to edit those colors as well? PsiSeveredHead 17:36, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Mediawiki Plus or New Widgets?Edit

At the Halo wiki, I noticed there's a bunch of "extra mediawikis" on the right side of the page. I was wondering if those were new mediawikis or new widgets? Either way, do you know how that's done? I think the StarCraft wiki could use some extra sections like that. PsiSeveredHead 21:03, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Mission TemplateEdit

I have a "mission template" at that looks like it could use a bit of work. The title sections (eg name, conflict, combatants and commanders) don't stick out enough on pages where the template is actually used (such as "Fall of Tarsonis"). I've tried using bold but that didn't work, nor can I figure out how to increase the text size. Can you help? PsiSeveredHead 21:03, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the Welcome! Edit

Hi there JoePlay, just wanted to say thanks for the welcome! I'm pretty busy with my main Wiki, The WarriorsWiki, with all my Bureaucratty duties, but I'll work as hard as I can on the SSBWiki. Anyway, just wanted to drop a line and say hi, so hi.

New Foum Edit

Hey Joeplay, I was trying to make a new forum on the SSB Wiki but I did something wrong since now whenever a new topic is added no template preloads to link back to the forums. Could you look into it? Thanks. Bonko24 14:53, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Thank You. Bonko24 22:19, 30 January 2008 (UTC)


Hey JoePlay I have a question. In SSBB is there really 10 new fighters? I heard there's Sonic and Wario! Please answer, Masterman

Help with my User PageEdit

Hey JoePlay, is there a way to have the same User Page (Writing, Data, etc.) in the other Wikia websites? If there is, please tell me. Thanks, MarioGalaxy

Where my User Page wentEdit

JoePlay, my User Page is gone. Everything! It took me half the day to work it. Can you try to find out what happened? Thanks, MarioGalaxy

User PageEdit

JoePlay, I found my User Page, I think it's because my computer froze the internet for a sec, but I reloaded it. Also, I didn't start my User Page in Central Wikia, I started it on this Wikia. Will that affect my user page on the other Wikia websites? Answer this whenever you can. Thanks, MarioGalaxy
