Welcome

Hi, welcome to wikia. :) 4th Hale (talk) 19:34, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

Welcome, and a question

Hi Meighan, welcome to Wikia. I have a question that sort of fits your job description so I'm hoping you can answer it.

A couple of months back I started the Shawshank Redemption Wiki. There's a limited amount of information that can be added about a 17 year old movie, but it's going to be my summer wiki project, as it were. I'm fairly experienced with MediaWiki and Wikia, so I don't really need much help when it comes to technical things, but I'm new to wiki-founding. My problem lies in trying to create an interested userbase around the project to help build great content. Two million people like the movie on Facebook, so it's definitely popular, but I'm having trouble finding extant communities about the subject. The wiki is still very much in the planning and growth stages, so I'm not worried as much about traffic as I am about finding people willing to contribute regularly. My question is, do you have any advice on seeking out people or groups that are interested in a cult classic like this? I don't even need people who are familiar with wiki markup. Right now I'm sort of at the point of cold-calling people who mention the movie on their userpages.

Thanks for the time,

--Cook Me Plox 01:19, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hello!

Hello, and congrats for becoming a staff member!

I don't really know which staff member handles what (there's no easy-to-find list as far as I can tell), but I have an issue with the acheivements on a Wikia, so could you direct me to the person in charge of that sort of thing? Thanks in advance...

Ʀооⱪιε 21:24, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Rookie, can you be more specific on what kind of issues you are having? Thanks! --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 21:01, June 12, 2011 (UTC)

Well, for a long time, the Wikia hasn't used acheivements at all, but not too long ago, they were activated to encourage more edits. I already had maybe 700 edits, and after a few more, I got the achievement normally obtained after five edits. So now, though I nearly 800 edits, I still haven't even earned the acheievement for 100 edits. Others are also having this problem. Is there a way to fix it? Ʀооⱪιε 00:12, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia spotlight

How can I qualify my wiki for the wikia spotlight? Please answer ASAP! from Mothra12. Roar to me. 19:57, June 11, 2011 (UTC)

The criteria are on the Community Central:Spotlights page. Check there.--GodPray  20:00,6/11/2011 

Since you are staff

I will ask you a question. There seems to be a background debate (unconfirmed) about what community central's role will be. Note that I am a Liaison to new users and care very much about what a new user experiences. It, in fact, is my belief that a new user (of good faith) is the best judge of a wiki.

The question is this: Since community central chooses to delete blogs that are not "on topic" and we (as a community) cannot edit policy on community central, should I, at least, out of respect to users (new or otherwise), make a forum stating the policy that is in practice on this wiki? There is no other way (that I can come up with) to resolve a community going against official wiki guidelines other than publishing a clear policy on the issue. The problem lies within the fact that we cannot edit policy pages and that only staff can come to any agreement about what policy is. The bigger problem is that staff is not the one who puts a delete tag on any (good faith edit) blog.

This is a completely locked out issue. On the one hand, the community cannot create policy on this site... On the other, the community is the entity who enforces "agreed upon" policy. The admins (who are not staff) are the ones who actually delete good faith blogs (and not so good faith ones, I might add). This becomes a problem, in my eyes, since the community is essentially following unstated policy that goes against official wiki guidelines.

I realize this happens on many wiki's as well. The easy solution is just to make a policy page for the individual wiki to state why the wiki deviates from expectation of what a wiki should be (according to official wiki guidelines).

The problem remains that it is not stated on official wiki guidelines to make a policy page in the first place and (specifically) on the community central, the hands are tied on the community that, in the larger part, keeps community central intact.

I am very tired and that might not have all made sense, but it is a BIG concern of mine. Iatbr 13:41, June 15, 2011 (UTC)

We hear you loud and clear. We are actively listening to your feedback and working on policy, organization and much more within Community Central. These things take time as you know. ;) So sit tight, and over the next few months you will start to see and hear about these changes.

Time constraints

Thanks, but if I start editing on those pages, I would have the community in an uproar (kidding). I have huge time constraints. I need to finish the guide first, anyway. I am kept busy on BL wiki as a liaison to new users. Iatbr 18:08, July 1, 2011 (UTC)

Jazzi! Wow! I didn't expect it to be so extensive. Nice job! There was no time restraint. It's when you want to do it. ;) I'd say let's start small with one or two threads...and then keep it going & see what happens. Your page is really helpful for me too!

No need for apologies! I was just thinking that if newbies come and read the post we don't want to make anyone feel bad for not knowing about pages and adding them. No one said a peep -- I just noticed it. ;) Looking forward to the post! --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 20:41, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Hello and Heyyy I'm not sure how this message is actully meant to go so... Hi there im El-liamo well liam is my actuall name and i saw you where staff on the community central and i was woundering if you would be able to un-ban me from the community chat site?I was banned around 3-4 days ago for aperently spamming? So if you could get back to me and tell me if i could be reconsiderd on the Community chat? Thank you :)


If you were banned, it would have been for a good reason, your best option is to live through your ban and make sure you never spam again. --TheBen10Mazter 23:36, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

I believe you were kickbanned by Charitwo. You'd have to take it up with him. As the system is now, there's no time limit on any ban, so it's fine to appeal these things.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  23:52,7/15/2011

Ok So.......I'm from TDICAMPS wiki and I was just banned for a year. So all these users are cussing, so I say I hope you burn in........but I don't say the He** word I say Hec. Please Help me.

Admin dash boards and founder progress bar

How do you use it on new wikis? TheBen10Mazter (Talk -Blog -Contribs) 20:24, July 20, 2011 (UTC)

Go to Special:AdminDashboard. If it says the page doesn't exist (like here), it is not enabled on the wiki. - Tjcool007 (Talk) 20:30, July 20, 2011 (UTC)
You'll need to create a new wiki if you would like to use these features today. The Admin Dashboard will roll out the first week of August for all existing wikis. The Wiki Progress Bar will only be enabled on new wikis. Hope that helps. ;) --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 20:34, July 20, 2011 (UTC)

How to make a specific wiki case insensitive and some other question

Hi,

I have been contributing to a small wikiwhich currently in a nice growing phase.

What has struck me are two things:

- The case sensitivity (capital letters make you land on different pages). Is that possible to remove somehow?

- The standard two new page options. In our wiki a lot of templated pages are needed to show the various items used in the game it's about. But it's currently more a copy paste work. Is there somehow an option to have a new standard page show up with a standard template and some text (we use a research tree, suggestions line and have a template info box item heavily in use).

But i am not very familiair with Wikia and thus have so far failed to find out how to do it. If you could share a light on this or help me find the person who can answer this in depth question, please say so.

Also i would love to change my signature. But when i insert wiki coding it fails horrendously. Can you shed some light on how to do that too?

Thanks a lot.

WikiPim 11:29, July 22, 2011 (UTC)

1) Case insensitivity is technically possible, just not very easy to do. People on metawiki had a discussion about it. It would require quite some modifications. The easiest way would be for you to create redirects, or to tell people to use the search (which is insensitive).
2) Ask through Special:Contact to enable the Layout Builder. That's the tool that let's you make page layouts. It will change the page in a Form though. There are also other ways. The default layout can be edited @ MediaWiki:Newpagelayout btw.
3) Make sure to check the "use custom signature" checkbox. If that doesn't work, paste the code here so we can check. - Tjcool007 (Talk) 11:42, July 22, 2011 (UTC)

RugbyWiki and AllTheWorldWiki

Hey Meighan could you help out on alltheworld.wikia.com or/and rugby.wikia.com as they are both quite hard to make by yourself. Thank you.

Hi Desertodov, thank you for reaching out to me and expressing that you need help. While I can't help you build out your wikis I can suggest that you explore the Founder & Admin Forum, there you can ask other users questions about help that you need. You can also read some of the many blogs we have -- start out with Founder & Admin blog and also User blogs:Admin Topics. Also, once we roll out the Admin Dashboard in a few weeks this will help you with the basics of building your wikis. Have fun!--Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 20:17, July 29, 2011 (UTC)

I think that would be a great way to meet other users and show your tricks! ;) Tell me what you think! --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 21:21, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

  1. Will it be 1 forum page then with subpages for each request eg. "Admin Forum:Userpage Layouts Requests/User:Foo?
  2. could you send me a message when the forum goes live

Advertising

Hi, I have been checking around for wikia's policy on User Advertising. I have heard that Users cannot advertise but cannot find anything concrete on that. Is there a policy against advertising on wikia pages without permission? Iatbr 06:51, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Users are free to make a blog post or forum to advertise their wiki. They cannot do so for anything non wikia related. This is the policy of Central, from wiki to wiki it may vary.--GodPray  06:53,8/15/2011 
Thanks... so no general policy disallows non-wikia advertising. Side note: can you provide a link to the policy of central that says that non-wikia advertising is disallowed on central? just curious to see it. Iatbr 11:23, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

FYI, the Terms of Use applies globally to all wikis regardless of local policy, not only Central as previously stated. User? 11:47, August 15, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Charitwo, I was about to say... I never registered for wikia central, I was automatically registered because of a different wikia... meaning I never agreed to the Terms of Use, unless it is global (I call it wikiwide :) Iatbr 11:56, August 15, 2011 (UTC)
It is global and you agreed to it when you registered your account, it is also linked on every page in the global footer. User? 12:07, August 15, 2011 (UTC)
Yep, it has to be global since I did not register with community central (directly) and have to follow it :) Thanks all, and thanks Meighan for the use of your talk page :p Iatbr 12:19, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, do you think my ideas might be used ,or they probably won't. Also in your sig you might want to put a link to your talk instead of help. Just a suggestion. --Kangaroopowah   Talk  17:23,8/24/2011 
Hi Kangaroopwah, Your suggestions were great -- I'm not sure if they will be utilized specifically. But I know the engineers read the blog comments just as much as I do. We have just started V2 of the AD -- so we'll see what's up in the coming weeks. As for my signature -- it's across the board like that for staff, and it seems like you've found my talk page already. ;-) --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 19:43, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

New admin tools

Hey Meighan, was quite late for me last night when you asked about new admin tools, but I've had a think about it. I think undoubtedly recentchanges is one of the most useful tool for an admin, but I don't think it's especially what you'd need to/should push onto new admins: For example, if someone founds a wiki and becomes an admin that way. For most wikis that get created, the first few weeks/months are realistically going to be just the founder editing, so going to recentchanges can often just show you a big list of edits you've done and hammer home the fact you're the only one editing, so perhaps pushing it onto founders may dishearten them slightly. I think new wikis need a focus on content rather than maintenance, and while you need to be aware if anyone else starts editing, usually it's not the most used tool for founders straight away.

On the other side of the spectrum, there's becoming a new admin by being promoted on a busy, active wiki. Generally, if the wiki has it's affairs in order, before you get promoted you need to display admin-like qualities. This means, scanning recentchanges anyway, keeping up to date with what's going on, and stuff like that. When I got promoted this way there was very little I had to learn, and really my time on the wiki wasn't changed all that much.

I'd say there's two different things here: founding a wiki, and administrating a wiki. I'd say that the mediawiki pages, themedesigner, and general wiki-customisation stuff etc., falls into the former category, and the maintenance-report special pages, recentchanges, blocking, etc., falls into the latter. But there's overlap, and to do one you need to be aware of the other one.

So in answer to your question about what is an administrator's most important pages, for me I use recentchanges, newfiles, contribs and deletedcontribs, etc.

And, in terms of things for founders, I remember the questions I had when founding a wiki (was back in 2009, so a lot has been made clearer since then):

  1. Why can't I change my colour scheme?
  2. Why can't I make the categories sort themselves by surname not first name (ie, DEFAULTSORT or [[Category:People|Smith, John]])
  3. What's this source mode thing?
  4. I didn't know this, but I should've known to link pages together as much as possible!

Anyways, soz for the massive post, but thats some of my thoughts!--Acer4666 15:58, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Acer -- no worries at all about the long post, all really great important points that I love hearing about and are very helpful. Huge help. If it's ok with you, I am going to link out to this in a comment on the blog post. Good stuff! Thank you! --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 19:44, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Editprotected

Hi Meighan! I was wondering if you could add in the editprotected usergroup to the Ben 10 Wiki that bureaucrats can give to users. Its a simple user group yet very useful to trustful users who are not yet ready for adminship for various reasons. One reason is that there a admin on another wiki and dont have time to edit as a admin but have time to edit admin only pages. Thanks and i hope you agree.

Either make your own email or get someone else from your wiki to do it 3) Extraneous user groups are unnecessary anyway. --User? 20:55, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

Admin dashboard colours

So Meighan, it has been many weeks since admin dashboard-gate. Back then we were promised work on the colouring of it - I've yet to see any mention of that. Can you give us an update, even though the majority of people have stopped actively complaining?--Acer4666 02:54, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

Hey Acer, We are working on themeing for dark wikis currently. One thing to keep in mind is that a lot of our features are in development and there are versions 1, versions 2, and so on. Although it seems like it was a long time ago Admin Dash is still in V1. So hold tight -- themeing should take place in the next couple of weeks. Nice work on the 'gate reference! --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 03:32, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

Admin Dashboard creative name

Hi! The admin dash board (by default or so) currently says "admin" on the toolbar. Is there a MediaWiki page to change this into something creative? I heard that a wiki is planning to call this "Admin HQ", and on Songpedia, I'm planning to call it "SP-Staff Home", and on the toolbar, I want it to say "SP-Staff" (since we call admins, SP-Staff members). How do I do that? If it's impossible, then this could be a feature suggestion. Thank You

Dashboard theming css

Recentchangesnormal

Without css

Recentchanges

With css


Hi Meighan. Just to let you know, above is a "before and after" of what Godisme's css code does. As you can see, it doesn't really solve the problem at all, so I guess I am not able to hide it with css. Any further ideas/solutions?--Acer4666 19:17, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

Have you reached out to Godisme? What does he say? --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 20:05, October 5, 2011 (UTC)
That's the best he can do with css.--Acer4666 09:54, October 6, 2011 (UTC)
What is it exactly that bothers you about the AD? Since we added back in the global nav it's basically the same except for theming. And as far as theming, you'll see changes in that hopefully very soon -- we're aiming for the next few weeks. --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 16:59, October 6, 2011 (UTC)
I hate that all of the special pages I frequently use now have an ugly colour scheme.
I hate that all of the active admins on my wiki want it gone, so making it optional on there would only affect the people who want it changed.
I hate that in your above post you said it would be changed in "couple of weeks", and now a week later that has changed to "a few weeks", the deadline getting ever further away.
I hate that when I brought up all of my concerns when the feature came out, I was told "you're not used to it, give it a chance". And now I have had time to get used to it and still want it gone, I was told by you on chat "this has already been discussed when it first came out". These sort of circular arguments make it impossible to give criticism on anything.
I hate that in chat you palmed me off with "you can make it go away with css". I could've told you then that people's claims of what their css does almost always falls short (ie, the above pictures illustrate godisme's claim of "admin dashboard is reduced to just a blue bar"), but now after a lot of effort and cache clearing etc we're back to where we started. And instead of an apology you're drawing me into a tangiential argument, which we already had the other day on chat.
I hate that after my attempts to put forward reasoned arguments for this feature being optional, you gave me the immortal quote about Wikia's decisions: "there doesn't need to be any reasoning".
I hate that features are soon forgotten about by the development team, despite bugs and issues that have staff have promised fixes for.
Does that answer your question?--Category:Acer4666 08:53, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
Hi Acer,
I think you may be able to look again at the CSS, from what I understand, some people have changed the color scheme as well as other aspects. Unfortunately I can not help you around that but definitely post a forum post on founders' technical help for help, you will get it there.
No change we make is going to please everyone, but we have to make decisions about the site layout and design for the site as a whole. If we were to make every design change optional, we would have an unreasonable number of exceptions and special cases to work with in every future tweak. The CSS suggestion is a compromise that allows you control over your experience, while allowing us to code for the wider Wikia population (including the future population).
I agree that the changes to improve the page should have come along sooner. There have been background complications that have delayed that, I'm sorry. I know it's frustrating to hear one thing one week and then be told something different the next as in terms of time frames. We are actively working on this issue. Sadly the time frame is out of my control. I'll keep you updated when I hear more.
I apologize for the comment on reasoning, that came out of my frustration at a circular conversation where I couldn't give you what you wanted. I can see how that made things seem like I don't want to help you or listen. Not the case. Jen does a great job explaining on her talk page issues we have around bug fixing and a bit of where we are at. Hopefully this gave you some info that will make you feel better and you can give her some great ideas about how we can do a better job improving our support for you all. We are listening, all of the time -- even when you think we are not.
Good luck with the CSS and I will keep you posted as soon as I find out more info on the theming. --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 00:03, October 8, 2011 (UTC)
Meighan, I shall take this part of your response here:
"If we were to make every design change optional, we would have an unreasonable number of exceptions and special cases to work with in every future tweak."
I agree that is the case is many of these new features. But that argument is completely inapplicable to the admin dashboard situation. I am not asking to keep a design that wikia has got rid of - I merely want to see what I see when logged-out. Instead of messing around with css to produce a sub-standard result, all it would take would be for the (I don't know how it works, but) box that says "if admin, then show horrible colour scheme", to change to "if admin and preference=horrible, then show horrible colour scheme". I don't see how making admin dashboard optional throws up any technical problems, or extra maintenance in future tweaks, because what I want is already achievable by de-sysopping myself. I just want to be able to be an admin, and see what non-admins do. The admin dashboard, as it affects such a small percentage of users, seems to me to be a perfect candidate for an optional feature; I am honestly scratching my head as to why staff are so reticent to allow us a choice.--Category:Acer4666 12:50, October 10, 2011 (UTC)
Hi Acer, All I can say is I understand you. I understand that you are frustrated. I understand that you want Admin Dash as optional. But all I can tell you right this second is that it's not optional. Not the best answer I'd like to give you. BUT -- I think what you asked Jen for on her talk page are smart and valid points. And as Jen expressed we share your frustrations around bugs and feature releases: "it's something that Wikia as a whole is working on." <-- And it is -- I can reiterate that as a member of the team -- something we are always talking about and working on to improve here at Wikia.
In better news that may make you feel a bit better: I saw the mock ups for the dark theming yesterday. They look great! Now we are working on how to best implement them so -- yep, you guessed it they are not super buggy or worse, broken. Hang tight and feel free to continue to reach out to me and the Community team. We are hear to listen to you and above all offer you support. It may not be a quick fix for your issues right away -- but hopefully knowing that you are being heard will help a bit. --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 21:24, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Dealing with vandalism and spam help page

I couldn't find your talk page in your signature on the P&F Wiki, so I'm leaving the message here.

Feel free to use that help page I wrote on dealing with vandalism and spam. We have a lot of younger people on the Phineas and Ferb Wiki and naturally they will react emotionally to vandalism, so I wrote it with them in mind. The advice is helpful for everyone, including me. Every so often I'll make an attempt to work with a person that is causing problems and I think I've had a 0% success rate each time. It's a fine line between trying to resolve the situation and giving them attention, which I point out in the "Actually talking to the vandal/troll" section. But at least I made the effort. —RRabbit42 (leave a message) 18:38, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

I noticed today that on my wiki, The Classic Car Wiki, that some of the ads from 'Around Wiki's Network' if not all of them were displaying in french.

French Advert

As you can see in this image, the Kirby ad is all in french

In the image below you can clearly see that one of the ads is in french. This is the first time I have experience anything like this so whats going on?

Hope you can help!

Well, that's weird. We've filed a bug to take a look into it. Merci for the tip! ;) --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 00:10, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

Blog

So you know how you said yesterday that I should write a blog on image licensing? I went ahead and gave it a shot, User blog:Godisme/Fair Use and Image Licensing. Give it a read when you have a chance.--GodPray  19:34,11/4/2011 

Rad, thank you! I am a bit swamped right now -- and have to leave early but I will read it at some point today and get back to you. I'm looking forward to what you wrote. Thanks for taking the time to do this, I hope that you got to study too. :) --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 19:47, November 4, 2011 (UTC)

Admin Forum:Whose wiki needs editors?

Hi Meighan! I noticed that Admin Forum:Whose wiki needs editors? is getting a bit long at 104 sections. Is there a possible way that it can be archived and have the archived pages still be accessible to users who might need more editors? – zzi 14:02, November 8, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Jäzzi, that's a great idea. I've asked Trellar to archive the first month of requests, she's currently working on a sortable table for that thread. Thanks for keeping a look out! --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 19:38, November 8, 2011 (UTC)

Hey

Hey Meighan, I think I by accident left the chat, I just wanted to say sorry, once more, and hope that were still cool... bye.

Hey Ben, it's okay! We're always cool! Also, I saw you reached out and offered help. Nice work. --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 05:41, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, that's Naga Sadow, who's not going to eat poor Walter, but merely holding it dear. (; –Tm_T (Talk) 06:13, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

Hmmm, holding poor Walter dearly with a twinkle of hunger in his eye. Judging by his biography do you think that character does anything dearly? ;) Thanks for linking me to Naga Sadow -- love that image of him, so well done. --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 19:48, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

I wanted to apologize for my comments and actions on your blog. I am not an Admin or Mod of any kind at my Wiki(Degrassi Wiki), but i'm a frequent user who just cares about the Wiki. I only brought up a specific case because it's frustrating that who I brought up continues to evade bans. Our admins have done a wonderful job, as well as Sannse, but he changes IP's to avoid said bans. I wanted answers, and I thought this was the forum to do it, but I was wrong. Finally, the 2 users who commented below me(Caoil and EliGObsessed) do not get along with me, and felt the need to point out the opposite point of view on the matter(even though EliG does not get along with who I brought up). My first point was meant as a topic discussion, but I should have stopped there. They discussed this blog in the Degrassi Wiki chat, and that is how EliG found out about it. Again, though, I am sorry, and hope you can accept my apology. DegrassiForLife 19:35, November 11, 2011 (UTC)DegrassiForLife

Question

On my wiki, for the menus, I accidently put the wrong catagory on a page, how do I get rid of it? Please reply.
