:[[Special:Mypage/global.js]] is where a user can place custom javascript that will change the functionality of things or add new functionality. Global means it will affect all wikis you are on while if you go to any other wiki you can use [[Special:Mypage/wikia.js]] to modify only that wiki for yourself.--{{User:Godisme/Sig2|04:31,8/8/2011}}

Wookieepedia block

Hello, Grunny! I'm PacBoyCraZ and I was an editor to Wookieepedia at one point, sometimes months ago. When I first joined Wikia, I was confused and I thought I was supposed to create a new account for each wiki. Since August, I had know not to. I made an accoutn called "KashyyykPartyWookiee!" and it was blocked for asking Toprawa and Ralltiir questions of what to do (because as you know, you do a good job and the wiki is full!). Anyways, I signed in as myself, PacBoyCraZ, and on T and R's talk, I said "KashyykPartyWookiee! is inactive" meaning I am no longer using the account. Because of this, I was blocked indefinatly. I think that my block should be over because I think I did nothing wrong, and I only edited three times there anyways. Can you please undo my block? You may need to talk to the admins first. -- Tommy (My Talk Page) 00:04, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, sir. I'll talk to him, but I'm not sure if he's on Wikia central, if he's not then I have no way of contacting him. Anyways, I've planned some great edits for when I come back and I promise I will be more respectful in my return! Cheers to you, too, -- Tommy (My Talk Page) 01:53, January 10, 2010 (UTC)
Hi again, Grunny! Has Darth Culator been active lately on Wookieepedia or any other wiki's he is usually active on? I messaged him here a while back and he has not spoken to me since. Perhaps I'll ask T and R and see if he can contact him. --PBCZ!!! are YOU talkin' to me? My Stuff 01:26, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Question

You´re VSTF? Andres bonilla 196 19:39, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

Uncyclopedia...'n'many more

Hi Grunny! I want to know why you'v deleted this page, and all other pages for other wikis. Mr. Floyd 16:33, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

Star Wars Fanon blue box page

Hey Grunny, do you think you could get me the deleted content from the community central Star Wars Fanon blue box page? That'd be great if you could send it to me, either on my talk page, here, or via e-mail. Whatever's more convenient for you. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea (talk) 19:58, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

Hey, Brandon. I've put it in a pastebin for you here. --20:11, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! - Brandon Rhea (talk) 00:59, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

Museums

Hi Grunny, you deleted Museums, and I don't know what blue box pages means. Would it be appropriate to recreate the page to refer to the MuseumsWiki? Best, --ThTtalk • 16:08, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

The blue box pages - pages that list wikis - have been made redundant by Central search, which searches for content from individual wikis. Thus, they shouldn't be recreated. You can list your wiki at a hub, for you probably Hub:History, however. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 22:29, February 16, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you! --ThTtalk • 13:30, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

JS Advice

Hi, I was recommended to you for some JS counsel. I am trying to integrate this code: http://pastebin.com/mb937141 with Twitter2 towards the bottom here, and failing: [1] Any help is appreciated. -- LordTBT Talk! 20:32, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

Dynamic IP address vandals

Hi. I notice you stepped in over at The Vault to undo some malicious edits by [2]. In case you didn't notice, that user has been cycling rapidly through IP addresses in order to vandalize us more effectively :p . Are there any good methods for dealing with such a thing? Banning each IP address as it comes up just seems to encourage him. Thanks.--Gothemasticator 09:54, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your response. I suspected as much. At this time we're not interested in restricting unregistered users en masse. We do see a lot of vandalism, but it is generally short-lived per user. Let's hope this guy gets bored soon. Thanks again.--Gothemasticator 10:10, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

Well deserved barnstar

Hello, I intended to give you a barnstar for your much appreciated assistance in the help forums, but I can't create template pages here, nor can I upload images.

So the best I can do is this:

Compass_barnstar.png The Guidance Barnstar
The Guidance Barnstar may be awarded to users who help others locate valuable resources, information, or assistance.

This barnstar is awarded to Grunny, for his thoughtful assistance which helps editor retention and to further build the project. Wikia needs more stellar editors like you. Thank you. Anno1404 14:53, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks :-). Grunny (talk) 21:28, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you

Apparently I've been blacklisted on #cvn-wikia. I'm not sure what could have caused it - could you look into this, and if nothing's caused it, remove the blacklisting? S-984 20:06, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

You were blacklisted automatically by the bot because you were blocked on haloideas. I have now removed you from the blacklist. Cheers, Grunny (talk) 21:30, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

Wookiepedian Problem Admin

Hello Grunny its nice to talking to you again. I am sad to say that I am in need of your help with an admin. I am in the wrong also but I am shocked by the reasons for my block. You see a user called Chack Jadson has blocked me for "Trolling" I assure you that if I harrased anyone I had no intesion to (Sorry about my bad grammar) He gave me one warning about spamming with user talk without sending me a link to the rules to show that what I was indeed spamming. I looked at his user page and it had no evidence of him being an admin. So I presumed he wasn't admin but a troll trying to control me. So I said this:

How is that spamming? Learn the definition I am annoyed of you... What am I doing wrong? If it was spam I would be defacing the talk pages writing random gibberish. Are you an admin? NO! So quit acting like one. If you it spam give me a link to the rules stating that doing what I am is not allowed then I will stop but considering that you didn't I am sorry but I will continue until I am done contacting every person. I will also leave a discussion for people to look at in the future but I highly doubt that people will see that this exists...... *-_- Kajalamorth 22:34, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

I know what I said was rude but I felt like I was being bullied. He then blocked me instantly for trolling and wrote this on my user page which felt that he was looking for reasons to bloke here is the block message:

[3] You have been blocked from editing for 2 weeks for spamming and being rude. Your attitude is disturbing. Instead of simply saying "yes, I'll stop," you insulted me and refused to heed my warning. To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified. Sincerely, administrator Chack Jadson(Talk) 22:40, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

He wrote on my block adivsery thing. But on my message for spamming and being "rude". I am sorry but that is not a reason for blocking someone from a wiki. Neither it is his right as an admin to say my attitude disturbing. If I had a temper and less mature I would went on another computer sockpuppetted and started massive flame war. But I am more mature then that. I then contacted him on IRC I queud it mannaged to get him. So he was there but he was ignoring me. So I told him that I would contact community wikia special:contact which didn't work because they said it wasn't anything bad. He simply just told me to wait or go to another wiki. But I am sorry but I will not take this harrasment from ANYONE.

Could you please do something about this. I do not want a shortened block. I think this whole commotion could have been avoided if it said he was an admin on his user page and he gave me a link to the rules like I asked him too. I didn't nicely but I highly doubt that these reasons are not sufficient for a block. He gave me one warning with no proof he was what he was saying he was. So could you please talk to the other bureaucrates about this issue.

It seems that you guys are having trouble with other admins also. I probably am going to leave Wookiepedia and I am dissappointed that I need to leave because of someone who is obviously much older then me and is harrasing me because he has more power then me. Thank you. Good day to you. Kajalamorth 16:43, July 18, 2010 (UTC)


Sorry it was a misunderstanding. Kajalamorth 16:59, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

JS problems again

Do you know why whenever I add more than two custom buttons in either the Wikia.js or Common.js the title rewrite template stops working? It happens everytime I try to add more than two custom buttons. Once I undo it, the template works again. Thanks, SSgtGriffin Htmlcss-toolbar on Facebook 18:10, November 2, 2010 (UTC)

When you added the other buttons you had an error. When putting things with quotation marks within quotation marks in JS, you need to escape them. So when you added "tagOpen": "<source lang="html4strict">", you need to put \ infront of the " within the tags. i.e. "tagOpen": "<source lang=\"html4strict\">", and the same for "tagOpen": "<source lang=\"css\">",.
That should fix it. Let me know if there are still issues. Cheers, Grunny (talk) 23:41, November 2, 2010 (UTC)
Ah. Thanks. SSgtGriffin Htmlcss-toolbar on Facebook 22:20, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

Turok wikia

I don't know if your the right place to bring this up... but on at the Turok wikia[4], is this vandalism or spam[5] and if so, could you or someone do something about this? If that's not vandalism or spam and if you can't do anything about it... then I'm sorry I bothered you.Wwwhttp (talk)

Hi Wwwhttp. That doesn't look like spam or vandalism, rather a user simply creating content about something they made. While it may not be worth an article on that Wiki, the user seems to mean well so it's better to simply leave a note on the user's talk page explaining what content is appropriate for articles on the wiki. Hope that helps, and let me know if you have any other questions. Cheers, Grunny (talk) 08:16, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Bot request

This is a copy/paste of a previous request that got no reply, so I hope you have time.
For my request, I wanted a mass title on a bunch of articles. If possible, suppress all redirects.

  • The articles in this section need a qualifier - w:c:gaia:Category:Sponsorships.
  • Excluding - "Sponsorship Items", "MTV sponsorship", "Virtual Hollywood".
  • The qualifier - sponsor: (no gap between the title and qualifier) sponsor:Example

I hope its a good qualifier, I haven't seen other wikis do this, but I have to keep track of the pages somehow. Do you have an alternative suggestion? Thanks in advance. -- Bunai82 (talk) 19:43, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Bunai. I can certainly move all those pages with my bot for you. One thing I can suggest is to consider whether you would prefer a new namespace created for "Sponsor:". If so, you can request it at Special:Contact. In the mean time, just checking, you want all pages except the three mentioned to, for example, Sponsor:Harry Potter? Though, if you want a new namespace created for it, you should wait for that process to be completed before moving the pages. Cheers, Grunny (talk) 21:21, January 5, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for the reply. And no, this is not about a namespace to the main menu, just a title for the pages so they can be sorted without interfering with other searches. But since you brought it up, what would this option do? Since I didn't create the wiki (just adopted it in 09), does the namespace in the menu effect how the wikis function? And how many can you request be placed there? -- Bunai82 (talk) 05:28, January 6, 2011 (UTC)
Adding a namespace for it wouldn't affect too much, it would just add the option to view all pages in the namespace under Special:AllPages and Special:PrefixIndex, would allow the talk pages for the Sponsor pages to be "Sponsor talk:Example" rather than "Talk:Sponsor:Example" and so forth. For what you want to do a new namespace isn't really necessary but it's an option you have. If you do decide to make it a namespace, you can request it through Special:Contact. Let me know if you just want the pages moved to "Sponsor:Example" rather than adding a namespace, and I'll get my bot to do it for you. Cheers, Grunny (talk) 05:54, January 6, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for explaining, I'll say the pages are low priority in a sense and will not do a namespace. I will likely try to redirect the sponsor talk pages to the main sponsorship talk category, since these pages are not talked about much in the first place and if they are, then one talk page would work best for all. So the bot moving can be done ^_^ excluding the following three mentioned.
Though I do wish I had known how that namespace thing worked before I moved some of the Map pages to different qualifiers ^_^;;. Can that namespace request be done even though the pages were manually moved some time ago? -- Bunai82 (talk) 20:47, January 6, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I'll set the bot to move the pages tonight. When requesting a new namespace be created, you need to ensure that no articles currently start with the namespace name, otherwise they may become inaccessible when it is made a namespace. If you have already moved certain pages so they have the namespace at the start of their title, you can move them temporarily to a slightly different name and then revert them back to the new namespace name once it has been created (a bit of work, but not too bad if you get a bot to do it). Hope that helps. Cheers, Grunny (talk) 03:04, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
The pages have been moved. :) Cheers, Grunny@fandom (talk) 00:05, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Zombiekiller. Your adoption request is one of the next in line on the adoptions page, so it will most likely be looked at by myself or one of the other people who look after adoption requests in the next day or so. Cheers, Grunny@fandom (talk) 13:40, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

I've been working a lot on that wiki... Seu Madruga 13:35, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

Request for deleting a whole Wiki.

I think twilightsagabookandmovie.wikia.com should get deleted, because twilightsaga.wikia.com/wiki exists, which is a much more important wiki.

  2. me (Administrator:User:JoKalliauer)
    Special:Contributions/JoKalliauer
  3. User:Spreadthetwiluv
    4 Edits see Special:Contributions/Spreadthetwiluv

There is also a third admin: LuckyTimothy but he is also very inactive.

Bot request pt 2

Hello, ^_^;;

I am in the process of arranging many pages and categories on my wiki, thing is, it is a bit tiring to do it manually. Could you do a category transfer. On an off note, I ended up figuring out a namespace so that is already handled lol.

The pages from this category, into the new category with the space

The pages from this category, into the new category with the space

For some reason that slight space looks better for it. And whenever you have the time, thank you -- Bunai82 (talk) 10:05, April 2, 2011 (UTC)

Bot Request

Hey. I hope I'm doing this right, haha. Well I'm here on behalf of the Glee Wiki, and we would like to borrow a bot to help delete a lot of categories. Is this the right place to request a bot? Tell me on my talk page. Once I have confirmed that I can have a bot, I'll send you the category pages that need to be deleted. Thanks!

Bot Question

Hello Grunny!

I know you are good with bots and so I had a question before I even propose this to the admins of the Bleach Wiki. We categorize all of our images into a category based on the episode number such as Category:Episode 122 screenshots. In the category we place:

This category contains screenshots from [[Bleach]] [[anime]] episode 122, [[Hitsugaya Scatters! The Broken Hyōrinmaru]]. <noinclude>[[Category:Screenshots by episode|122]]</noinclude>

and obviously the numbers and the name change with the Category. We are missing quite a few of these categories so my question is would a bot be able to create the rest of these categories for use following this format? If so it would definitely make things easier on us using a bot rather than users having to create the 60 or so categories we are missing. Thanks in advance for your response--GodPray  05:14,4/6/2011 

Hi Godisme. Yes, a bot can create pages quite easily. You could feed it a list of episode numbers and names, and have it iterate through and create each of them with the content you pasted above (with the number and name substituted in for each one). Cheers, Grunny@fandom (talk) 07:03, April 6, 2011 (UTC)
Hi Grunny, I am back. I have the admins approval for this so would you mind doing this for us? I have a list of episode numbers and episode names here.--GodPray  17:32,4/11/2011

Help

Hey Grunny. Thanks for doing the bot for me, and stuff.One more question: Is it possible to delete ALL of a user's contributions? This User has only left very rude comments and left over 4000+ of them. Is there a way to do this? If so, please do this ASAP. Thanks!

Can we use the AWB to replace all the "Attachans" to "Attach" (except on a few pages).. please tell me how , I'll do it myself .(mywiki)?--Roranoa-zoro Talk|01:01,5/9/2011

On every page? You'll want Pywikipedia for that.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  01:13,5/9/2011 
Impossible with AWB ,.. even if I have the page list ?Roranoa-zoro Talk|01:17,5/9/2011
It is possible with AWB. The AWB manual on Wikipedia provides good documentation on how to do this, including how to find and replace text and make lists of pages to run the bot on. It's best to try to read the manual and see how you go. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. Cheers, Grunny@fandom (talk) 01:25, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
I've read it .. so "normal" is good right ?..but how do you make the list of all the pages (not special:allpages , I guess ). but another exception is it should not be preceded by "Fiery" .. possible ?--Roranoa-zoro Talk|01:37,5/9/2011
Just enter all the categories that pages are categorized under or user contributions of all the major contributors of the site and take out duplicates. There is an if not command I believe which can make it so Fiery Attachans is not replaced.--GodPray  01:41,5/9/2011 
Godi , I dont understand : I wanna know how to make a list of all the title pages :) thanks :)Roranoa-zoro Talk|01:43,5/9/2011
You should be able to make a list of pages by using the Special pages option and selecting All pages in the dropdown. As for making it so that it won't replace is Fiery is infront of it, use regex. So, in the normal find and replace set the Find field to "(?<!Fiery )Attachans" and the replace to "Attach" (without the quotation marks of course) and check the Regex box on that line. I hope that helps. Cheers, Grunny@fandom (talk) 02:07, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks : I'll try to do that :)Roranoa-zoro Talk|07:39,5/9/2011

Bot

Hey Grunny. Can I bot add an easy template to every page on a wiki? Day Turns Today Turns Today (Cause we all have little more homework to do) 13:55, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

That's easy for a bot to do, although you'd probably be better off adding it to every article some other way; if you ever want to take the template off you'd need to use a bot again, and untagging a page is more difficult than tagging one. Depending on what you want to add, you can use JS to add it instead of a template. What are you trying to do?  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  14:40,5/16/2011 
Actually I know a way how to remove it without a bot. I'm from the Glee Wiki, and we want to add the template {{Testing}} to every page. Is it possible?
Day Turns Today Turns Today (Cause we all have little more homework to do) 13:24, May 18, 2011 (UTC)
Looking at the template, I'd recommend JS again. It's possible with a bot, but using a template will mean that if you change that template, it has to be recached everywhere. JS will allow it to update much faster, with the added benefit of full control over where the image goes, what it does, etc.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  14:05,5/18/2011 
Whatever gets the job done, I'm up for it. But through JS, is it possible to still add it to every page? Day Turns Today Turns Today (Cause we all have little more homework to do) 16:17, May 18, 2011 (UTC)
JS adds it to every page unless you tell it to exempt pages. I just left Finchelfano a message on my talk page with code for it.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  16:23,5/18/2011 

Concern

I didn't really know who to tell about this, but I'll just say here. A user at Death Note Wiki recieved sysop rights by This user. By reading the User's talk page and this discussion I don't think he should be a sysop because he's treatening users, when they aren't doing anything. I'm concerned, because he is taking up the position of someone who will be a good sysop. Also, on the same wiki i was trying to add references and it didn't work, could you help me with this? Moon Beam (talk-contribs) 08:08, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

Hello

Hello I wanted to request you a bot for deleting pages under some categories in the glee. It will greatly help the wiki from spams and this way it will be easier for us to clean up wiki and a normal user can also help us to delete by just tagging them with those categories. So can you help me?  Finchelfanno1  (talk)  20:06,5/29/2011 

Sure. If you link me to the categories that contain the pages that need deleting, I can do that for you. Cheers, Grunny@fandom (talk) 00:39, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Hello the categories are Pages Needing Attention and Candidates for Deletion. But we have decided to monitor them ourselves, sorry for bothering you :)  Finchelfanno1  (talk)  11:00,5/30/2011 

Bot question

Hi me again,I've got a question for ya

A user on my wiki asked me this:

I was wondering, is it possible for your bot to run through all the chapter pages and find out which ones don't have their long summaries completed? If so, then could you please leave a list on my talk page once completed?

Note:Chapter Pages is a category

I think I've got an idea on this:

I'll count the no. of MB of each page(of the category),so I can figure which ones are very small

Is it possible?Thanks:)Roranoa zoro [Talk] 12:58,6/1/2011

no answer?Roranoa zoro [Talk] 12:04,6/8/2011
So you want it get the size of each page in a category and make a list of those under a certain size? If so, that's possible. Cheers, Grunny@fandom (talk) 12:22, June 8, 2011 (UTC)
Supah thanks for the reply,but how?Roranoa zoro [Talk] 07:22,6/12/2011
Well, I'd just use the API to get a list of pages in the category, get their page size in bytes, and if it was under a certain size, add it to a list. Cheers, Grunny@fandom (talk) 07:40, June 12, 2011 (UTC)
I just wanted to do it myself,possible using AWB?Roranoa zoro [Talk] 07:48,6/12/2011

About adopting Code: LYOKO wiki

I did ceate blog posts, but I don't really think they will answer. I actually made two. For now only one answer and it points towards me. I will wait a few more days if needed, but I don't think something's going to happen. Remember, this wiki is very much a ghost town, that's even the reason I want to adopt it. Thanks. 3... 2... 1...

Era Icons

Hello sir, I'm from Prototype Wiki and was hoping if you could help me with the codes required for Era icons as i'm not sure if the current codes used in the wiki's Wikia.Css Common.Css and Common.js are correct. Thank you.--VatsaGentek 11:56, July 17, 2011 (UTC)


Hi. AT a quick glance, it looks like you're using a combination of code from Wookieepedia and elsewhere, that may conflict on the era icons. You're also loading some functions that don't exist on your wiki such as setupUploadForm();. You're calling functions that rely on Wookieepedia's (rather outdated (I should rewrite)) Functions.js without importing that JS. So a lot of JS might not work for you. I'd say you first have to decide which approach to the era icons you want (Wookieepedia's or wherever the other version is from), and also decide which of the functions that you copied over you actually want. Then you can start cleaning up the JS and trying to make it work :). Cheers, grunny@fandom:~$ 10:10, July 20, 2011 (UTC)

inFamous Wiki Bot

Hi there! Alareiks, an Admin at the inFamous Wiki here. I'm making my first MediaWiki API bot. I heard from my friend and wikian vatsa1708 that you might be able to help me with a problem I have. The thing is, the bot I'm making, can connect to the wiki and all that, but even though it has got its tokens, I keep getting the following message:
WARNING: Token not found on infamous:en. You will not be able to edit any page.

After checking the log-in logs, it has got its token from the specified log-in. Now, it still can connect to the server and all that, find articles etc, but not edit due to the token problem. So, basicly the question is: do you have any idea what the problem might be? Alareiks | 21:20, July 25, 2011 (UTC)

Nevermind. I managed to fix the problem - turned out I accidently had made an additional zero in the MediaWiki version. Alareiks | 15:06, July 26, 2011 (UTC)

Question

Hello Grunny, I was wondering what a global.js is?--White Flash Dragon (talk) 04:24, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Special:Mypage/global.js is where a user can place custom javascript that will change the functionality of things or add new functionality. Global means it will affect all wikis you are on while if you go to any other wiki you can use Special:Mypage/wikia.js to modify only that wiki for yourself.--GodPray  04:31,8/8/2011 
Thanks.--White Flash Dragon (talk) 04:36, August 8, 2011 (UTC)
