Few Issues

Love your wiki and I've been contributing as much as possible. Almost all of Morell's Castle is completed. I noticed that your menu bar on the left says The Well twice but one is really The Grounds. Also I was wondering if there is a simple guide somewhere for things such as linking items in the wiki or adding a lock timer. Is there any way to specify that a certain number of quest steps are active at the same time?

not sure if its an extension, or just a configuration

is it possible for you to change it so when a user registers it auto creates their home page and talk page?, I've manually created some of the pages when replying to people, but it would be so much easier if it was automatic. - Lorak990 17:46, 18 November 2010 (CST)

Requesting file move/elevated rights

is it possible to get upgraded rights to modify/move files for corrections/maintenance? - Lorak990 16:48, 2 December 2010 (CST)

thanks for the upgrade - Lorak990 18:22, 2 December 2010 (CST)

corrupted file thumbnails

The file File:LotS_Grey_Sian_Tag.png thumbnails all seem to be corrupted/display oddly for some reason but the full image is fine, not sure if this needs to be purged completely or something else (i don't have rights to attempt this), i also saw that Danxor had tried to delete and re-upload, if you could please take a look, thanks - Lorak990 22:52, 3 December 2010 (CST)

Thanks for hosting the LoTS wiki

Was just stopping by to say Thank You for making it possible to find all game information in one spot.

Re-Vamping

Is it ok if we Re-Vamp the LoTs wiki?

  • Change the table colors a bit
  • Change the layout of the main page? We can cut the items down to just one link on the main page, Equipment, and implement a tab system for the Equipment page.
  • We can also do the tab system for the Ship section as well.
  • Actually we could do it for all the Sections now that I look at it.

Here is a preview of what the color changes would be [Sandbox]

Let me know what you think. I've had a couple ppl look at the sandbox to ask their thought on the new color layout, and its been good reviews so far. :)

not sure if this is really relevant but since we share some history I thought it might be an appropriate forum to distribute this

fileadmin update

is it possible to get an upgrade for the fileadmin group to include delete files/pages, there are some corrupted files/thumbnails/extra pages i'd like to delete/reupload, or would it be better for me to just tag the pages/images new template for deletion for an admin to clear? anyways please let me know thx.

Thank you for the update :) Lorak990 11:57, 8 April 2011 (CDT)

spam prevention extensions

looks like there are a number of antispam/blacklist/spambot lookup extensions that can be installed, or activate the ConfirmEdit extension that's already installed (the latter may just deter any legitimate edits as it requires a confirmation code to submit the edit) [1] Lorak990 23:21, 3 June 2011 (CDT)

Important !!

Hi, Zoy do you still play juggernaut? or you quit the game ? Thanks

spam/page changes

seems we have another bot attack, working on rolling back the changes and protecting the template/high traffic pages.

This current attack, is out of control. i revert an exit and within 4 minutes it gets edited again.. can we implement the captcha with enter xxxxxx random code to confirm this edit for anonymous edits. Lorak990

Juggernaut game

Hi I am one of the Polish Illuminator and I would like to know if I can help in the development zoywiki, and more precisely the Juggernaut? I already have experience in editing Wikipedia:)

#varpull

Hi there,

I like some of the things you have done with the site. :) But in particular, I really love what you have done with the #varpull extension in templates. Is that extension downloadable or available for general use?

ColorLink and color variable

Hi Zoy, Not sure who to ask about this, but since you're the wiki owner... How come the colors for the Lots/ColorLink and the color variable used in the templates don't use the same colors? For example, I can't tell the Item Template to use the "yellow" color defined on the wiki (color template for yellow), and when the Light Blue gets used in the item template it produces a green color, and when I try and use it with the color link, it uses the real light blue color? I'm trying to figure out how to use the teal-ish green color for text on Screaming Barracuda's item page. The same result for violet and purple: if I use purple in the Item Template, it produces a violet color, but when I use it as a ColorLink, it produces the normal shade of nearly unreadable purple. I'm sure there's something I'm missing. Klaxxin 08:17, 23 July 2012 (CDT)

Captcha on account creation

Seems like we need a Captcha on account creation (if there isn't one already -- I don't recall). Wiki's started getting attacked by bots. Klaxxin (talk) 09:17, 31 July 2012 (MDT)

Add deletion category to special pages?

I finally added a delete template, Template:Delete to the wiki which automatically places pages into a special category called "Candidates for Deletion." Could you add Candidates for Deletion to the lists of special pages? You can use the delete template by pasting {{Delete}} onto any page. It makes a nice, shiny red banner on the page.

Sidebar

How to I access the sidebar? I did it once before, but I don't remember how I got there. Klaxxin (talk) 16:11, 3 August 2012 (MDT)

Cosmetic stuff for LotS

I'm still not great at making stuff look pretty, but the LotS wiki definitely needs a little help. Would you be interested at all in helping beautify the LotS wiki? Some of the things I'd like to do are beyond my knowledge and skill. I'm bringing this up, because that card template for LoH in your sandbox looks pretty spectacular. Klaxxin (talk) 08:32, 7 August 2012 (MDT)

Re: Strange Image on LotS

Per your question, LotS Advanced Deathmechanics 5.png in article LotS/experiment/omegadeathmachine is valid. It's a QR code that's used as part of puzzle hunt chain. Doomcat (talk) 15:31, 7 August 2012 (MDT)

  • Cool. Thanks for checking up on this, though. Always appreciate your feedback. :-) Doomcat (talk) 07:33, 8 August 2012 (MDT)

Re: Collapsed Template

Aha! That's exactly what I was looking for. I've got a somewhat complex sort of representation I'm going for on some of these requirement displays, and that collapsed template is definitely what I need for this test.

upload error

getting this error: when trying to upload a blank/transparent placeholder LotS_Any.png
Upload warning

Personal CSS and JS files

Hey Zoy,

So, according to http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Interface/Stylesheets I should be able to create a file like http://zoywiki.com/index.php/User:Doomcat/common.css and it should get injected into every page that I see when I'm logged in. However, that doesn't seem to be working for me, and I wonder if you have some expert wiki knowledge that I'm lacking. Thanks! Doomcat (talk) 02:43, 11 August 2012 (MDT)

I know that's true (needing capitalization) on MediaWiki: namespaced CSS, but I think the personal ones are lowercase. If you visit http://zoywiki.com/index.php?title=User:Zoycite/Common.css&action=edit it should give you some red text like Warning: There is no skin "Common". Custom .css and .js pages use a lowercase title, e.g. User:Foo/vector.css as opposed to User:Foo/Vector.css.
Cool, as soon as you flipped whatever switch, my common.js (which just contained alert("test") started working. Thanks! Doomcat (talk) 14:17, 13 August 2012 (MDT)

deleting old users

Zoy, isn't there a feature that lets you delete old users that haven't logged on in a while? I think the best criteria would be to delete any users that haven't logged during the past 365 days, as opposed to users that just happened to make accounts during 2010. Klaxxin (talk) 10:15, 13 August 2012 (MDT)

getting an error - You do not have permission to <action-usermerge>, for the following reason:

The action you have requested is limited to users in the group: Bureaucrats wondering if there's a way to filter by blocked, i know we blocked a whole bunch a while back that might narrow down the list Lorak990 (talk) 12:37, 13 August 2012 (MDT)

LotS raid template

Zoy, can you help me with some weird transclusion issues? I've been trying to fix up the border issue on the Template:LotS/raid template for a while, but there's a series of six transcluded templates used on the raid loot page. I can hardly follow the transclusions. Whatever it's doing. it's causing the borders to be funky on the last table on the raid page i.e., [2]. I was able to "paste" the first two tables together, but the loot table has something janky going on because of all the transclusions. I've been trying to simplify this, but I've only made things worse. On a sidenote, I edited the Mediwiki.css file to include a special class of tables for LotS called "lotstable". Not sure if using that class is causing any of these problems. Klaxxin (talk) 01:53, 16 August 2012 (MDT)

  • So I downloaded Firebug, and I can highlight the problem for you

Table
When you highlight the colspan at the bottom of the image, it produces the purple highlight that you see in the picture. That extra region also appears on all the daughter cells in the table. How can I make that go away? My goal is to make the third table line up with the first two, so that I can remove the top border and top margin (already did that for table two). It will look like all three tables are actually one table. It looks like the content area for the third table is rendering correctly at 600px, but that something is happening either with cell margins, cell spacing, cell padding, or borders.
