Battlefield Wiki Edit

Hi. We've had a major flame war recently. It got so bad, as admins, we've set up a new wiki to discuss what should happen, but we don't want any of the users involved finding out. I caused a little problem though. I was editing MediaWiki:Pagetitle-view-mainpage so I could copy it for the new wiki, and accidentally saved the altered version back in the same place, including the title of the secretive wiki. I've reverted it, but I was wondering if you could use oversight it to get rid of the revision [1] from the history, just in case. Please, your help would be appreciated. And can you reply here please - {{SUBST:Signatures/Bondpedia}} 21:25, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Alien Swarm Wiki Edit

Hi JoePlay. I'm an admin on a non-wikia Alien Swarm Wiki. You have a response to a comment you made on that wiki, in case you miss it. Thanks. surlyanduncouth (talk) 18:31, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Swarmhub Edit

The guys at swarm hub have discussed with me the idea of moving the wiki there, i dont really get if theres any point either way, still they seem to think so, is there a way that i can promote someone else to become administrator?

Request for intervention at the Prototype Wiki Edit

Hey Joe, I'd like to request for your help. Earlier today, I've been unfairly banned from the Prototype Wiki by the bureaucrat you appointed, Supermutantslayer450. However, his accussations and reason for the block are ridiculous. I've spent the better part of the last month revising the navigation, standardising article layouts, adding info- and navboxes to the articles and finally fitted the wiki with a proper timeline article and navigation menu in the sidebar. That all is on top of rewriting and expanding articles.

However, recently, the bureaucrat in question has come back, started claiming that I've violated rules of the wiki and after repeated attempts to bully me into submission by threatening me with blocking and removing my admin privileges, he blocked me for disagreeing with him and making, quote, unconstructive edits, unquote. The rules he claims I violated were never posted anywhere on the site; they were never discussed publcily; they were never agreed upon by the community. He claims they were passed on to him by the wiki's founder on an IRC channel, but since Wikia is a community driven enterprise, not a one man show, I don't consider them binding, for the reasons stated above.

Bottom line, I need your help. I've put a lot of effort into the wiki only to see it all go to waste now, as the bureaucrat is now liberally deleting my work, ignoring any and all voices from the community.

All I want is to be able to expand the wiki and not be harassed by people abusing the powers granted to them. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 23:17, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Problem with Monaco.css Edit

Hey there Joe, I was referred to you by Matias arana 10, and I'd like to know if you could help me sort out a bit of an issue that I'm having on my test wiki. I'm testing out a new skin that I designed, but for some reason, the user pages don't show the background accent on the left side, while the talk pages and my home do. See, I want the whole thing to look like this, but something in the coding or some lack of coding is causing the user pages to display this. Thanks for your time, and I'd be appreciative if you could help me out on this one. SAMSONIUS 00:55, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

Widget Frames Edit

Hey, I would like to use the widget frames you supplied for the Assassin's Creed Wiki for the wiki I'm on, Pirates Online Wiki. May I? -Obsidion (talk) 16:32, August 9, 2010 (UTC)

Template help! Edit

A template here suddenly malfunctioned. The only changes were adding things to the bottom of the page, yet the entire template structure no longer works. Please look at the difference between the final edit and the one before it, to see if anything else went wrong. The tree template might also have some limit that I'm not aware of.

Disabling achievements Edit

I solved my template problem when I found Templates. But what I do need is for achievements to be turned off or disabled. They have become, and it seems always were detrimental to the orderly running of the Alien Swarm wiki. --Basique 04:01, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

RE:Widget Frames Edit

Hey, I added the frames yesterday, but even though I changed the colours, the boxes are the same as on the AC wiki. Is there an error in the code, or is it just a delayed update? I've had that happen before. Is there a way to get it to update faster? - Obsidion (talk) 13:04, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

Weirdness Edit

I haven't logged in over at Alien Swarm because I've seen some weirdness today, every other retrieves a cached page qualified by "Retrieved from", and we now seem to have an extra sysop named Sacarathe. --Basique 16:41, August 12, 2010 (UTC)

Resident Evil Character Page Edit

Forerunner and myself (The Uncharted Agent), were having a discussion about the Character Page on the Resident Evil Wiki. If you could take a look at our discussion, here: Forerunner informed me that you are the one in control of this page, so this does concern you.

Thank You for your time. The Uncharted Agent 23:02, August 13, 2010 (UTC)The Uncharted Agent

New Skin on Mass Effect Fanon Edit

Hey Joe, I'd like wiki's skin to be more of a Mass Effect related cityscape than just space. Good city/landscapes to use would be one of the Citadel or other good quality images. I'd also like the wiki to utilize slightly brighter colors, not too bright,though. Slightly lighter blues and even purple. For the color purple, I'd like the color to be similar to the code that I'm providing (#6931BD). Keep in mind that I'd rather have a clean, fresh looking wiki than one that looks so gloomy. Thank you so much. -BluethunderContact 23:24, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Monaco.css on BlazBlue Wiki Edit

Hey Joe, an admin and I decided that we should change the skin of the BlazBlue Wiki. We updated it but nothing has changed. Could you please take a look at it and see if there is anything wrong? Thanks. Judge Balthier 19:06, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Me again, The skin looks great! But the background image isn't fully covering the whole page. Could you please fix it for us? Judge Balthier 23:22, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Translation of a Wiki Edit

Hi Joe, Enodoc from Fable again. Missingnox has suggested that he translate Fable Wiki into French (see here), and has already set up a site at . Could you tell me please if there is a quick way of copying all the pages across, or if I need to do it all by Special:Export and Special:Import. Thanks. --Enodoc(Talk) 14:48, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

Call of Duty Wiki Edit

I'm a bureaucrat there. About a year ago, I recall that you designed a fresh, new skin for us. Much of the community is now in discussion about a new logo, and a new skin to go with it. Would it possible for you to make a new skin in a Call of Duty: Black Ops type of style? - Bovell (talk) 15:08, September 2, 2010 (UTC)


Don't know if it's just me, but recently, something seems to have gone wrong with image sections of various wikis, with images being displayed vertically rather than horizontally. I don't know if it's due to a change in wikia's coding, a glitch or something localized. More asthetics than a true problem I guess, but I was wondering if you could provide feedback. Thanks.--Hawki 01:30, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Spec Ops Edit

Hey mate, do you reackon you could fix the logo on the Spec Ops wikia? No matter what I do, it just stays the same. You should see the updated version on the wiki.png page. Cheers :) Kranitoko (talk) 21:07, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Fable III giveaway Edit

OK then. We will see how the achievements go then. Just a question, is the giveaway only for US residents again? if so, I am really going to hate it and will not promote it myself. especially as Lionhead is a British company. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 20:44, September 10, 2010 (UTC)

Sounds interesting, a shame that it's just for the US. So how did you find out about this giveaway then, and how does it work? --Enodoc(Talk) 23:15, September 10, 2010 (UTC)

Template talk:FacebookGameWikis Edit

Hi, Joe. I'm capable of adding the Fairyland Wiki by myself, but I really want to see the list alphabetical. Can you think of an easy way to do it while still leaving "br" at each line-end and a blob between all other pairs of games? — Robin Patterson (Talk) 01:04, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for quick response and alphabetizing. I'll add Fairyland soon. It occurs to me that Wikia might benefit from an active approach to developers of Facebook games encouraging them to give Wikia sites official fansite status in exchange for some promotion of that particular game and that developer's other games (and thus, from our point of view, reducing the likelihood of other non-official competition). — Robin Patterson (Talk) 07:53, September 18, 2010 (UTC)
