Full Wiki List

Hello JAlbor, I've noticed that you've been working a lot on the Kickstarter games portal, so I'm hoping you might be able to help me with a different one. Over on the Full Wiki List, the page unfortunately displays the short guides I added a while back to help users add a Wiki. I have no experience with DPL. Do you know how I can make that DPL respect the <noinlcude></noinlcude> coding in the Wiki Lists? -Revitalizer (talk) 17:02, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

  • Off the top of m head, I actually don't know. If you let me know the address of the template I can take a look. You can also use Special:Contact to ask for assistance from community support, who may have more expertise than me. Best, Jorge @Wikia(profile)•(talk) 18:31, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
    • Thank you, but I decided to simply replace the DPL by transclusing the Wiki Lists as they are on the portals. It was really unnecessary there. -Revitalizer (talk) 18:33, August 11, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Wiki Redesign Help

Thanks for the offer Jalbor!

I'm definitely looking forward to the redesign. I love the look of the Kickstarter Portal, and I think using it as a general model for the other Portals is ideal. If you could help with modifying that look and applying it to the others that would be awesome. I'm guessing as far a redesigning the main page, making a Content Team request would be best?

Anyways, once Adan Aileron gets back to me about the suggestions made here, I think we can move forward. -Revitalizer (talk) 22:30, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

Fantastic. Yes, making an official request would be best, then we can get more people on our team working on it. We will be out of the office until the New Year though, so if I don't get back to you, please don't hesitate to message me again!
Jorge @Wikia(profile)•(talk) 22:46, December 20, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up. If Adan gives the green light and everything seems to be in order, I'll make a formal request and come 2013 we can start the redesign (all assuming humanity survives tomorrow :p ). Have a nice holiday break! -Revitalizer (talk) 01:00, December 21, 2012 (UTC)

Original Score

Hey there JAlbor,

I've made a mistake on the Original Score of 2012 and added Halo 4 on when two options for Halo 4 already exist. Would it be possible to delete my submission please? It might also be a good idea to delete Gabriel Auditore's submission as well to prevent a divide in votes.

Regards,

Gamia Request

Hey JAIbor!

Just a request. I have recently added Red Ball to the Game of the Year 2012 page. Could I request that you add this to the Red Ball submission, and could you also add this in the text. Thank you!

Shadows60 (talk) 22:14, December 21, 2012 (UTC) ShadowStar

Hey Shadow. I had to actually rollback your edit. The related field cannot have anything in it and I can't have people changing the Description field. That is what populates the header image and provides the link for more things to vote on.
I also won't have time today to add an image to your page. However, here is the code you can adapt that places the image, links, etc in its proper place: Assassin's Creed III
AC3 Cover. Chance change the information as needed to put in the bottom. I'll delete the Red Ball nomination for now.

Portal Redesign

Hello again! Now that JoePlay has designed a new Main page and we've archived old content from the portals, we're ready if you're ready to start working on them. Just a reminder about the layout and features the Wiki agreed on:

  • Make the Wiki Lists 3 columns instead of 4 to eliminate Wikis which take up 2 lines
  • No longer use any Events/Milestones/News/Featured Content/Browse/Categories sections
  • Create a bloglisting unique to each Portal (like you see on the Main Page for News)
  • Include a Featured Wiki section (like the featured Kickstarter)
  • Create a Survival-Horror Portal

In the end, the portals should have a brief introduction (, followed by a box for the Featured Wiki, News blog listing, and Wiki List. Could we try having the Featured Wiki and News blog opposite each other in columns, by the way? If it's too cramped looking we can always revise. Regarding the visual design, this of course is in your court primarily, but what do you think about using a different colored theme (for elements like the heading images) for each portal? -Revitalizer (talk) 23:53, January 9, 2013 (UTC)

Hey Revitalizer!
Excellent. I was looking forward to this message sooner or later. I should be able to start next week, and maybe a little Friday, but it might be slow going at first for me. I'm hoping to have it all done by the 18th.
A couple of questions: 1)What was the final decision on the star system? Will we still be using the color systems and the page count marker for wikis? 2) When you say "colored theme" for portal headers, do you mean different color theme for each portal? Different colors for each section in a portal? Or different coloring in the words themselves?
Best, Jorge @Wikia(profile)•(talk) 01:18, January 10, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for getting back! That sounds like a fine time-frame.
To answer your questions: 1) We're going to use choice two from here with the same number system with the addition of a 100-499 level (which pearl represents). Are you planning to revamp the way the Wiki lists work (their templates and such) beyond the number of columns? If not, you can delegate changing colors to us if you'd prefer. 2) I was thinking a different colored theme for each portal; something visually distinct between them. -Revitalizer (talk) 03:36, January 10, 2013 (UTC)
Ah, excellent. I was planning on keeping the current look, other than the star system. In which case I will probably leave that to you all. I like the different color layout, not sure yet what might work. I'll think on the types of headers to use or font and see what I come up with. Of course I'm happy to change or tweak whatever I create, so I'm not too concerned. - Jorge @Wikia(profile)•(talk) 21:57, January 10, 2013 (UTC)
Hey Revitalizer, I just wanted to let you know I've started the Portal redesign project. It'll be off and on and might take a little while (although I'm still hoping to finish within a week. I just wanted to let you know that some of those portals will be works in progress. So don't be weirded out if things are ugly or incomplete. :) Jorge @Wikia(profile)•(talk) 00:47, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

Icopedia Merge

Hi there :)

I've seen your message, one year ago, in Icopedia's admin talk page for a merging process with Team Ico. I think that it's a very good idea, and it will attract more contributors to Team Ico's wikia. So why the merge wasn't done? Also, I would like to know if you can unlock the Team Ico's main page. I have some things I would like to add (which are in my Team Ico's profile) but I cannot do it, and Admins aren't on Team Ico since a long (long) time. I cannot apply for an adoption because I plan to adopt another wiki soon.

Besides, you should know that there is a third Wiki about Shadow of the Colossus, but the founder don't want to apply neither to hear about a merging process (he block anyone adding Ico content on his wiki).

Thanks in advance for further information :)

Sincerely,

Hey there Specter!
I don't actually recall why that merger never went through. I think it was because there wasn't a ton of interest around it. That being said, I'm happy to move forward with a merger. We'll start soon! Since there is a dearth of active admins, let me know if that is something that would interest you.
Jorge @Wikia(profile)•(talk) 20:19, July 8, 2013 (UTC)
Hi and thanks for your answer,
I understand, it wasn't a very active community (and still isn't a big one), especially when we know that not much info were said about The Last Guardian recently.
But I'm glad to know that we'll be able to merge it :) It will be cool for me to eventually become an Admin on Team Ico, although I will make a request 60 days after for another wiki, if I'll still want to adopt it (Time Crisis).
Thanks a lot :)
--Golden Spectertalk 22:54, July 8, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for asking to someone to do the merging process. Now Icopedia redirect to Team Ico, and I hope it will bring more people on it :) I might ask to adopt the wiki soon in the devoted section! Thanks again and see you next time :)
Sincerely,
--Golden Spectertalk 04:53, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
No problem Specter, happy to help. If and when you do get around to adopting the wiki, let me know too. Sometimes I can expedite the process. I'm also really hopefully that wiki does well (Ico and SotC are easily in my top 10 games of all time). And this point, there's nothing more I could wish for than a Last Guardian release. Jorge @Wikia(profile)•(talk) 15:44, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll let you know when I'll ask for adopting Team Ico wiki :)
I can't wait for The Last Guardian to be released too, but I still wonder about how much time the Team Ico will need in order to finish the game :p --Golden Spectertalk 19:26, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
I've finally made an adoption request as of now ^_^ I hope to become a bureaucrat and to finally be able to edit the main page and to improve/ secure the wiki!
--Golden Spectertalk 21:07, July 12, 2013 (UTC)

Hi
I have been granted bureaucrat of Team Ico's wiki. Thanks a lot for the message in Merrystar's wall and for the merging with Icopedia (and now with SotC wiki), that's fantastic!
Have a nice day :)
