Hello Joe, it's Ilan xd. There is a user called Down2Buiness who working in a wiki called Wikihunt, a Wiki about the action-stealth games series "Manhunt". He is a really great editor there and he is does not have admin rights there! None of the staff there is active for more then 3 months, and he is also doing a good job in my wiki.

I'm asking if you can give him admins rights, as he is a very good editor.

He told me that he did this severel times, when no one of the admins was active, by the way, how my new wiki? -- Ilan xd 15:40, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. I will tell him 'bout that -- Ilan xd 16:08, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Powerpuff Wiki background image resizeEdit

I tried to upload this image and make it the background for my Powerpuff Girls Wiki, but the image won't be taken, saying that it's too big. Can you make it 100KB, please? Thanks.

F.E.A.R. page moving issuesEdit

Hi, I'm an admin on the F.E.A.R. wiki, and I seem to be having some trouble with moving a page. The page's name is currently F.E.A.R.:Origin Online. It needs to be F.E.A.R.: Origin Online, but the system won't let me move it for some reason. It keeps saying I'm moving it to the same title. Can you help please? {{SUBST:User:AlessaGillespie/sig}} 05:19, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, The Mighty Q

Halloween badges Edit

Thanks for the excellent Halloween wikia badges! Much more appropriate than the generic ones. If I think of some good images for the wiki-love track, I'll let you know, but it's probably fine to have one "traditional" looking track. Surprises are appropriate for Halloween.  :-) -- CocoaZen 01:59, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

question? Edit

Hi Joe

I know this probably isn't your job but I was wondering if you could help

I have been trying to get an imagemap (I think that's what it's called) where you click on different parts of an image and can go to different pages. The image is on my user page if you would like to have a look.

I tried following instructions on how to do it but it's beyond my brain level :(

I would appreciate it if you could help but also understand if you can't.

Thanks --wildecoyote Howdy Pardner leave a message here  23:45,9/28/2011 

wow Joe

That sure made it easy to understand. I downloaded GIMP and got the co-ords just have to type it in etc.

Thanks again. You make it look easy --wildecoyote Howdy Pardner leave a message here  23:43,9/29/2011 

Hi Joe

here's what I have so far: == Map testing == <imagemap>#<!-- Created by Online Image Map Editor ( --> File:The Pioneer Trail World Map-icon.png rect 204 96 245 232 [[Goal]] rect 456 66 170 179 [[Limited Edition Goals]] desc none </imagemap>

but I must have done something wrong can you have a look please. I have it on our test page

Thanks again --wildecoyote Howdy Pardner leave a message here  23:53,9/29/2011 

Hi Joe

Not sure what I did wrong. I got the figures from GIMP. Maybe I should look at getting photo shop?

Hi Man!Edit

Hi Joe, I wanted to tell you that I'm now a b'cart of the Gangstar wiki :) Rockstar Games Wiki is now bigger, but I still have alot of work. -- Ilan xd 14:30, September 29, 2011 (UTC)

Image Map Edit

Hey Joe, I'm not sure who showed me this tool (could of been you for all I know) but just in case you are not aware of it, I thought I would give you the link in case anyone else ever asks for Image Map help. I dare say that if wikia has a Image Map extension help page, this link should be added. Anyways, this tool makes using ImageMap super easy. Wikipedia links to it, and it's been up and stable for the few years I've used it. You can see my most recent reply on User_talk:Wildecoyote#Image_mapping for how to use it.   Hooper   talk    contribs    email   00:32, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

Country Music WikiEdit

Hey JoePlay! Carrieunderwoodfanforlife 20:18, October 4, 2011 (UTC)carrieunderwoodfanforlife Thank you so much for approving me for help! Ok so -

This is obviously a country music wiki, so I want to have anything to do with music/country artists.

I think for the Main Page it would be so, so so amazingly awesome cool if we could do like a background of country music stars faces: current stars, like Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, etc.

Or is it illegal to use a celebrity's face for this??

I think if we just did a Western theme that would be far as colors, like yellow, blue maybe?

I do not know. you are the expert! I think the famous faces would be so cool to have in the background if you could do that.

Honestly I am not picky; any help I can get at this point is very appreciated!

I feel like I am doing this alone by myself. Retrieved from ""

Country Music WikiEdit

Hey I love it!!!!!!! Looks good....the only thing is I can't see the artist's faces like you said. I can't see it in the background. I don't know why! Carrieunderwoodfanforlife 22:50, October 4, 2011 (UTC)

Retrieved from ""

Yes please if you could make it smaller and less wide so it will fit on my screen...Thanks! Carrieunderwoodfanforlife 22:57, October 4, 2011 (UTC)

Administratorship on the Rage wikia. Edit

Hey JoePlay! Before I start, I would like to thank you again for your help with the Elder Scrolls wikia! I and the users highly appreciate what you and Tierrie did for us!

Since you're the Wiki Staff member I know best, I thought of asking you:

I am preparing and "cleaning" the Rage wikia, as I will get my copy of Rage in the mail tomorrow (Rage sadly comes out the 7th of October for us Europeans :P), but I see there is so many strange things being made left and right on the Rage wiki, and It becomes VERY frustrating when I'm not able to remove vandal, or useless, categories, pages, etc. There are many things needed to be improved, and I know I will do my best to do that.

I wrote a request to become an admin on the Rage wikia to Ausir, whom yet has not replied. I can't blame him for not replying, I know he is a very busy man :) I also wrote a message to Wagnike2, another Wiki Staff member, just a couple of minutes ago. I saw Wagnike2 had granted another user adminship about a year ago, and therefore thought he could do that to me too. But I am worried it might take a long time before I get to become an admin. I still haven't seen any vandalized categories or pages be deleted, and I know this can be very destructive for the wikia...

Therefore I was hoping you could make me an administrator, or at least point me in the right direction(as of who to ask) so that I can become one. As I wrote in the message to Ausir and Wagnike2; I am a very trustworthy person and the Elder Scrolls wiki community would agree with that, so there should be no worries for me becoming an admin for so ruining the wiki... That is something I am trying to prevent on the Elder Scrolls wiki, and now the Rage wiki. Thank you very much!

Hi Zluhcs. The proper place to request adminship on another wiki is the adoption page. In the meantime if there are any major issues to address (vandalism or spam, etc), you can report them to the VSTF while you wait for your adoption request to be answered. --CharitwoTalk 00:21, October 7, 2011 (UTC)


JoePlay, The imageportals are working great, but I can only use them for content pages. I have over 70 category pages with content. I'd like portals to them also. On the Red Dead Redemption homepage, they have circular portals.

Is it possible to make two rows of four portals on the left side of the Claymore World homepage? Or would square be more esthetic? The categories are People, Places, Scenes, War, Things, Events, Minutia and Content. Jamie95403 17:14, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Social Wiki/Wiki SocialEdit


Creo que con las nuevas implementaciones de indole social, como el chat comunitario, las nuevas paginas de discusion, los blogs y la implementacion de los foros a aumentado considerablemente el numero de usuarios y me hace notar que el futuro de wikia esta en ser una especie de red social mezclada con wikipedia, eso tendria mucho exito, ya que combinaria las ventajas de una red social con las de una enciclopedia virtual, con la caracteristica proteccion de datos de los sitios wiki y la posibilidad de editar y entretenerse con algo mas que videos y fotos de nuestros amigos, en fin, queria decir que me encanta como esta evolucionando wikia y estoy encantado de poder estar en ella :).

English (Google translate)Edit

I think with the new implementations of social, community and chat, new talk pages, blogs and forums implementation of greatly increased the number of users and makes me notice that the future of the wiki is to be a kind social network mixed with wikipedia, it would have much success, and that would combine the advantages of a social network with a virtual encyclopedia with data protection feature of the wiki sites and the ability to edit and have fun with something other than video and pictures of our friends, in short, I wanted to say I love how this evolution wikia and I am delighted to be in it :)

hi, I found a vandeled page:MediaWiki:Emoticons

Hi, that page is not vandalized, I did that in order to prevent usage of the emoticons until Wikia has fixed the scroll glitch associated with them. It was made into gibberish so that people could not accidentally trigger it.--GodPray  18:35,10/20/2011 


Hi! You left me a message, but i didn't quite understand it. Ummmm, i asked to be a admin on two pages. are u the one who decides that? Somebodycool1111 18:27, October 20, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, that is just the auto welcome message. It gets autosigned by the last admin or staff member to edit the wiki before you make your first edit.--GodPray  18:35,10/20/2011 

Stationary WallpaperEdit

Hi JoePlay,

Can you modify the current skin/wallpaper background so it remains stationary as you scroll down the page, like FairyTail and other sites? Or would it be better to leave as is? Jamie95403 23:01, October 20, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Stationary WallpaperEdit

Thanks JoePlay! Jamie95403 23:12, October 20, 2011 (UTC)

Taxonomy treeEdit

Hi JoePlay. Is it possible to create an interactive taxonomy tree for the three rudimentary family trees on the People, Places and War category pages?

Similar to the flow charts on the flow chart Wiki. Or maybe portals with graphic arrows/lines? Is it possible to make a map interactive on Wiki? I'm open to any new ideas.

I don't need the infoboxes on the three category pages, as they contain redundant information. Thanks! Jamie95403 10:47, October 23, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Interactive trees, maps, etc. Edit

Thanks, JoePlay! Jamie95403 19:47, October 24, 2011 (UTC)
