  • Hey could you help in setting up pywikipediabot for the simcity wikia?

    I have installed it all on my computer it just get's to the password bit I enter it and I get this error:

    • Hi! First off, have you configured your user-config.py file properly? It should look something like this:

      mylang='en'
      family = 'simcity'
      usernames['simcity']['en']=u'Sgt_Frogman1'
      console_encoding = 'utf-8'
      

      Then, run the generate_family_file.py command and follow the instructions. Use "simcity" as sitename.

      Does the command work now?

  • Hi there mark. I'm a keen coder, and I was wondering how you got an image as a background in a table here... MainpageHeading_Warhammer40K

    Thanks, Thomas

    • Hi Thomas! I added the background using CSS, which I added to MediaWiki:Wikia.css on the wiki. Just replace the URL below with the URL of your image, and you should be good to go!

      .MainpageHeaderWarhammer {
           background-image: url("http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/warhammer40k/images/f/f0/Wiki_Header.png") !important;
      }

  • I was wondering if Amalur Wiki was removed from testing the related videos module. It seems to have disappeared about 5 days ago. All the relevant pages are still present and otherwise the wiki seems to be working as it should. I have to say the new module fits great on our wiki since there's a lot of user video content e.g. on youtube that can help illustrate walkthroughs/item locations/etc and the module helps keep articles free of video file clutter.

    I'm writing here as you were the one who advertised the pilot on our wiki.

    Cheers!

    • Hi Gyumaou, It seems that the Related Videos Module was taken down as it had some problems on the Amalur Wiki (it showed 0 videos for multiple pages). We think the issue has been resolved and are going to re-enable it today. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    • Oh, well, the ) vids is my fault, of sorts. We decided the pre-populated videos (3 trailers) were not necessary on each and every page of the wiki, so I removed those three from the global video list.

      We had issues where we could not remove the pre-populated videos from some pages (on a per-page basis), and later we decided that instead of removing them per-page we're better off removing them altogether, and re-adding where necessary.

      The reason for the problem seems to lie in order precedence between the individual pages and the global list. The entries in the global list seem to take precedence over individual pages in the RelatedVideos namspace. Thus, blacklisting a video on an individual page will have no effect if that video is whitelisted in the global list.

      I've also posted some suggestions regarding the module on your wall on Amalur wiki, don't know if you had a chance to look at the message. The first two posts relate to the above problem (so ignore them), the third is suggestions.

      Cheers, and thanks for responding!

  • I do see that you have a Vault Boy as a Avi, which makes me think you are a Fallout fan. If you are, we would really like a member like yourself. If you are interested, please head here!

    • That is indeed a Vault Boy, and I am indeed a fan of the Fallout series :)! However, I am currently a bit busy working on other wikis, but I'll definitely pass by Nukapedia soon!

  • Hi Mark, Skype request recieved.  I anticipate being available around 19:00-24:00 GMT tomorrow.

  • I really hate to ask this, as I understand that my e-mail does not take priority over others. But I was wondering if there was any chance you could respond to my latest e-mail? The discussion and voting processes are officially over now, and we're all very interested in seeing how these changes will better Nukapedia. I appreciate the help, and have a good one!

    • Hey Leon,

      My apologies, I have not yet had the time to respond to your e-mail. However, I will be sure to implement the requested changes tonight.

      Cheers, Mark

    • Thank you again for all of your help. (This extends to everyone else that helped, as well.) Looking forward to seeing these new features implemented. :)

        Loading editor
    • I might have to delay the implementation to tomorrow while I make some changes to the code. The infobox template used on the wiki is unusually complex (it makes excessive use of parser variables), and as such is not fully compatible with the current format.

        Loading editor
    • Take as much time as you need. My main concern from before was whether or not my latest e-mail response was even seen. I'm imagining that you guys get tons of e-mails to sort through over a daily basis. :P
