Any chance you can help us out? --Tullis 20:13, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

All wikia wikis have a cache, it'll take some time before you're changes are actually visible. Using Crtl+F5 may speed it up. — Balistic 21:23, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
Any suggestions how long? Last time the sidebar changed pretty fast, but I updated the sidebar on the 8th of March and it's still the old version. I usually clear my cache for big changes, but nothing's showing. --Tullis 23:30, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

Background Image Edit

Hi Joe, I was wondering if you could set up that background image you mentioned before over at Fable Wiki. We've attempted it ourselves but were wondering if you could tidy it up. In particular, I like the way that God of War Wiki has a partially transparent text background so you can see the whole picture, it would be good if you could do something similar. For more info and to see the image we'd like to use, see my talk page and Michael's. Thanks. --Enodoc (Talk) (User Space) 19:53, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Looks great, thanks! Just two things; could you try 75% transparency opacity (although this may be too much) and there's a strange dark band in line with the Fable Wiki logo that cuts across the picture; is there a way to get rid of it? Thanks. --Enodoc (Talk) (User Space) 11:13, February 18, 2010 (UTC)


Hi Joe, do you mind me using your logo for the German Mass Effect Wiki? --BlackfuryInput? 20:33, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

Tron Legacy Skin Edit

Hi Joe,

I'm the founder and admin on Tron Wiki and I would really appreciate if you can help me out design a new monaco skin for the wiki. The hype about the sequel film Tron Legacy is growing fast and I really want the wiki to be clean looking, before wiki activity really starts picking up the next few months. I saw your CSS work on the Avatar wiki and thought it was absolutely awesome :D.Thanks in advance! Mr. Sinistar 05:33, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Hey Joe! Thanks a lot for the update!! I really appreciate the new link colors, the Masthead colors as well as the other changes you did! Once again, thanks!! :D Mr. Sinistar 00:31, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Simpsons Wiki Skin Edit

Hi, we at the Simpsons wiki would like a new skin. We would like this as the background image, repeated. We would also like the main colour scheme to be changed to a yellowish colour if you can. If you need more information on what we would like you to do, please ask me. Thank you, ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 16:33, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. It looks great. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 07:56, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

Viewing Classes Edit

How would I go about viewing classes on a wiki, like table classes? 21:11, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Table and div classes defined by the wiki's admins are viewable as css, usually on MediaWiki:Common.css. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 22:02, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

CSI Wiki Edit

Hi Joe. I'm an editor of CSI Wiki and I would like that you make a skin for it. It can be of three colours, like the 3 CSI TV shows: CSI: forestgreen, CSI: NY: royalblue, CSI: Miami: darkorange. In Wiki.png you can put CSI: Wiki. Thanks, sandan 18:36, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

Forget the 3 colors, it was a bad idea. The background can be like this or this, with fingerprints and DNA, and with the characters of the 3 TV shows on the top, like the sea in Lostpedia. The logo can be like Wiki.png but without the a, only CSI: Wiki, and with this font. Bye, sandan 15:21, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Subcategory Issue Edit

Hi there! User:Gaarmyvet told me you were of assistance to him on the w:c:flashforward Wikia. Anyway, it doesn't look like subcategories are appearing where they should under categories in w:c:caprica. Here's where I detail the issue: [1]. What am I doing wrong? Thanks! 02:54, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Ok I discovered that the "Add category" at the bottom of the article doesn't actually add the category - it adds a link, so my problem is solved ATM. Thanks! 19:59, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Your userpage Edit

hint, hint: The Wikia Staff link is broken. — Balistic 15:11, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Help Again... Edit

Hi Joe, sorry to bother you again, but I was amazed with the work you did to my wiki, so I wanted to ask you for help again, if you don't mind :/ James Cameron is doing a new project called Alita: Battle Angel, and I did a wiki, with a logo and a favicon, but I needed a skin, if it's possible. But it would be something simple, as there are no images from the movie yet, but there are some art, shown below. So a simple and cool skin will be great. Maybe taking the image of the logo to the background if it's big enoguh and making a new logo...? Maybe some images that may help: 1, 2, 3, 4. Sorry to bother you, again. If you can't do it or you don't have time, then it's ok, but let me know ;) --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 23:44, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

I tried to do it myself, but it was impossible :P I know that maybe an skin on a new wiki may be a little rush, but I'll edit on it, I just need an skin to work on, for example the main page. Apparently, this also needs a code on the MediaWiki:Monaco.css, but I can't do it unless I have the skin. This is just in case you didn't get the message. Again, thanks for this and for the skin you did on my Avatar Wiki! If you are bussy, tell me so I won't wait for your answer ;) Again, thanks! --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk
Thanks again, and don't worry about the articles, they will grow :) Nice skins you made, I picked number 4 :P Only one last thing to leave you alone XD You can see here that there is a little problem with the colors. I need to change that in the MediaWiki:Monaco.css right? Just tell me the code and I'll copy it. Again, thanks! --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 21:38, March 8, 2010 (UTC)
Now this is the last, I promess XD I really think it's something inside the Monaco, because take a look at my test wiki and the original wiki. They have different skins but the same code for the infobox... Any thoughts...? --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 00:26, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
You're the best. --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 01:27, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Joe! Now I have more articles :D Take a look: I hope that's enough for a skin... Anyways, thanks ;) --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 12:26, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Lunabella wants a ban for herself...sorta. Edit

hey joe, i just wanna know if i can be ban from talking to a user, not being ban from the whole wiki.

i was sorta "stalking" this guy because i was clingy but it's not like i was that one guy, michel from NCIS so...

it's on the vampire encyclopedia wiki's okay if you can't do that, i just didn't want to talk to him because he hates me now.


No, it is not possible to block yourself from somebodies talk page, however, you could just ignore him. ajr 03:55, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

BioFanon Help Edit

Hello, JoePlay.

I don't know if you remember me or not but you once helped me and another user with the skin and logo for the Mass Effect Fanfiction Wiki. Well, I need to call on you for help once again. I'm trying to clean up the Bioshock Fanon Wiki and a big part of that is the skin for the site. I was wondering if you would help me again by designing a skin and logo.

What I had in mind for the skin was a dark-blue like the Bioshock Wiki and for the background, a view of Rapture if possible like the image below, not repeated if possible but repeating would be fine.


For the logo, I thought of an image similar to the "Bioshock 2" cover art. Instead of the title saying "Bioshock 2" it could say "BioFanon."

I'd understand if this is impossible for you at the moment but thank you greatly anyway for your time and consideration.

Thanks again, Kamikaz 22:41, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

P.S. Thanks again for your help with the Mass Effect Fanfiction wiki!

Article Comments Edit

Are there way to turn off Anonymous user comments? Lot of anonymous users are spamming our article with useless comments... it is abit hard for our admin to answer those that really need help... Icon mafia 24x16 01 Edricteo 04:28, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Logo Help Edit

Hi Joe, I'm the admin of the Avatar Wiki, and you made a new skin for it like a month ago. Now I can see that the logo is almost invisible there with the blue-dark background, and I thought that maybe its time for a newer and better logo. Also the logo of the movie isn't blue, it's green, as shown at the end of the movie and in the Oscars. So, I hope you can help us and do a great logo, as you did with the skin ;) Thanks in advance! --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 20:36, March 14, 2010 (UTC)

In return of your help with the skin and logo, I saw your great work with the Bioshock fanon logo and skin, and I saw you needed bigger images, and I found 4 that may be helpful:
I hope it helps you, --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 20:41, March 14, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, it was a whole new logo, as the current blue one is almost invisible with the blue background. But if you're bussy, then it's ok, just tell me if you can. Thanks again! --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 22:06, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

Gaming pages Edit

Would you (or one of your team) mind taking a look at pages in this category, and move them to Gaming and/or delete them as needed? --CharitwoTalk 11:47, March 18, 2010 (UTC)
