Galactic Codex: Essentials Edition 2183 Edit


I was wondering if all the information from the Galactic Codex: Essentials Edition 2183 made it to the Mass Effect Wikia. I know there is no place where it is all typed word-for-word, but is there any information still missing from the Wikia that can only be found in the Galactic Codex: Essentials Edition 2183?

Thank you!

--Question answered by Tullis. Thanks!

Images Edit

Hi! I took these images and thought that they would look better without the light blue background. Could you remove the background from these two images when you have time? There's no need to hurry, I don't need these that much. :) HiQu (My talk) 20:27, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Here are the images:

Changing background color Edit


Stigma-231 told me that you were the one who created the background of the bioshock wikia. I'm creating the hungarian version of the site and I would like the same background color as the original one.

So could you help me, please? :)

Combine OverWiki Edit

Hey there! In October 2007, you created this. I know it's old, but was that for? Wikia Spotlight?... Klow 23:32, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for that quick answer. I actually just restored it, to showcase the wiki's logo history. Are you the one who made this and this, then?... Klow 10:10, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

Ongoing Vandalism at Borderlands Wikia Edit

An anonymous user with the IP has been blanking pages on the Borderlands Wikia. A few other users and I have been reverting the damage as best we can. Pdboddy 16:07, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Intermittent Skin Edit

Hey Joe,

I have set up a wiki at SigmaStorm 2 Test Wiki to test out ideas for the SigmaStorm 2 before making them live. One thing I was happy about was that I was able to copy the WoW Monaco.css skin to make a new skin for the test wiki. This was working fine on Friday, but when I accessed the test site today, it was not working.

Is there anything special I need to do to get this to work consistently? Please drop me a line at the Test sigmastorm page if you can help me with this.

Thank you in advance,

Mrjoeterrace 22:17, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, again for your help on the wiki!

Importing CSS Edit

Hi Joe,

do you know whether there's a way to import CSS from an URL in MediaWiki:Common.css and MediaWiki:Monaco.css? I've tried the usual @import url("URL of CSS file"); but either I was too impatient when waiting for the cache update (:P) or it doesn't work.

The reason why I'm asking is that being able to import CSS would be very useful for the various non-English Fallout wikis. While they share the skin of en.fallout, most of them do not have users who know their way around CSS and the skin CSS there does not get updated nearly as regularly as the one of the English wiki. As a result, new Wikia features usually remain unskinned - which doesn't look all that great. If it were possible to import CSS, I could seperate the skin CSS from the one for templates and the non-English wikis could simply import the skin-specific CSS, resulting in the skin CSS automatically being updated across all language versions. -- Porter21 (talk) 17:38, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, that's what I tried to use. I saw you using it on w:c:masseffect a while back and copied it :P Guess I was just to impatient or the cache was updating slowly that day. Thanks anyway :) -- Porter21 (talk) 19:28, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Odin Sphere Wiki Edit

Hello JoePlay, sorry to bother you but I was hoping that if it's not too much trouble you could improve the skin and appearance of the Odin Sphere Wiki and give it a feel similar to the Resident Evil Wiki or the Zelda Wiki, but if it's too much trouble I understand and thank you for taking the time to read this... -The Forgotten Beast 23:08, December 11, 2009 (UTC)

SC Wiki referral numbers changing Edit

I activated the "Referrals" widget a year or two ago and constantly watch the numbers for the StarCraft Wiki. At least twice the numbers have dropped or jumped massively, making me think that occasionally the measuring system has changed. In any case, Google is always listed as the largest source of referrals by far.

For the past two months the numbers from Google have declined quite a bit; I think in the 20% range, but it's not one of the measuring system changes. Given the slow news period, I wasn't particularly surprised, and can't think of any changes to the front page that would account for this.

However, the number of total visits, according to Google Analytics, decreased less than 1% between September and October and actually increased (by less than 1%) between October and November.

So it seems that for some reason, perhaps Google doesn't like the wiki anymore. I was wondering if the SEO changes need to be changed again.

On the plus side, I'm seeing the wiki getting referenced a lot more in various unofficial forums, and it even won this "poll", beating out SC2Armory, although I've got no way to measure how many times it gets referred to. Images also get linked a lot. (Fan forums rarely appear in the Referrals widget.) PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) 01:10, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Mafia Wars Wiki Edit

Hi Joe, 2 weeks ago, you mention to me that Wikia is talking with Parizad at Zynga to promote Mafia Wars Wiki in the Official Mafia Wars blog, until now I still dont see any blog entry from them, is the discussion still going on?


Sonic Wiki Edit

Hi JoePlay. As you just left a comment at the Sonic Wiki, I was wondering if you could help me out with a problem I've had there with the Monaco skin. I recently tried changing the colour scheme, so that the user masthead is blue with orange letters and the tabs at the top of regular pages (the ones that say 'Article' and 'Talk Page') are white with black lettering.

However, when you create a subpage of a userpage, the tabs that should be white-and-black instead have white tabs with blue-and-orange boxes in the middle (here's an example). Sonic Wiki has a huge number of such user subpages, so this is quite widespread, but I can't figure out how to change the Monaco skin to prevent it from happening. Do you think you could have a look and tell me what's gone wrong - or, at least, point me in the direction of someone else who could help me? Thank you in advance, Supermorff 23:01, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks so much for helping with those colours, Joe! I'd have had no chance figuring it out by myself. I took your advice with the text colour in the pill buttons too. Thanks again! -- Supermorff 04:01, December 30, 2009 (UTC)
Ooh, nice! Thanks for showing me that! -- Supermorff 21:10, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

Hey Joe, I'm Kagimizu, an admin at the Sonic Wiki. You see, a while back I tried to implement the Archive Tool, and while it's there visiually, it doesn't seem to work properly. Could you fix that please?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 19:35, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Well, I tried asking his to fix it once before, but he never responded.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 22:41, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

help please Edit

these two users are vandalizing the articles in Assassin's Creed Wiki: [1] and [2]. Our admin is currently not around so could please ban them? - SilverSummonerTaLk 06:04, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

Both have been blocked, and their edits have been already cleaned up. Joey (talk) 08:46, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

One image Edit

Hi! I'd need one image to be transparent. No hurry. HiQu (My talk) 15:35, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

Contact Edit

Excuse me, but could you give me a link to the Contact for Wikia? I need to ask a question. Better yet, is it possible for you to tell me what Wikia's virus protection is? My family has been having some issues, and my dad would like to know what Wikia's virus protection is, to see if Wikia is the source of our problems. If you can answer this question, please answer on my talkpage. If not, please give me a link on my talkpage. Thank you.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 04:52, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

Call of Duty Wiki Edit

I've created a Call of Duty Wiki in Spanish: I know that you made the skin of and I like it. Can you make a skin like but in blue colors? In the logo you can put:
Call of Duty Wiki
Todo sobre esta gran saga (in english means something like: All about this great series)
And in the small icon that appears near URL bar it can be like this: COD1icon
Tell me something here--sandan 11:19, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
WoooW!! you did a very good work. And very fast! Thanks a lot
I've 2 questions: how can I change the colour of this template to the new blue colour?
How can I change the small icon that I mentioned before? --sandan 22:26, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
The favicon has appeared, thanks. I've tried to put this colors in my template: 015184, 013354, 0E192D, but they're very dark; look here. Can you give me a lighter colour? Another thing, I can't put the first column of this table in blue color. Can you help me? And how can I put the lines between these tables in grey colour? Thanks for all --sandan 20:23, January 6, 2010 (UTC)
I put all the borders in the tables, but when I put the borders in this template they are different, and very ugly. Why happen this? --sandan 15:33, January 7, 2010 (UTC)
Hi JoePlay, sorry if I'm annoying but I've more questions. I created a navbox based on this template but it doesn't work in my wiki and its exactly the same code that in english version. And I tryied here and works! Look: --sandan 22:36, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Hiya! I've fixed it for you. If you want to change the colours, you can visit this page and change the "hex's" (#000000). Good luck!
Thereby, Joe, maybe w:c:es.callofduty should be merged with w:c:es.cod. Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 22:53, January 16, 2010 (UTC)
