  • Hi. I want to say that the navboxes' designs for the most part aren't so "attractive", as they are just white-backgrounded and nothing else. Also I wonder if they're actually using the navboxes in the articles.

    And by myself, I created a navbox for the Sonic fandom, similar to the Harry Potter one in structure. Well, it's because I would love the idea about the navboxes having distinctive colors for their fandoms instead of having a same boring design imo. Just giving an idea ^^

    • I agree. The old navboxes were coded weirdly and the plain white boxes looked horrible. An old admin coded them with CSS on the wiki, but it doesn't seem to work anymore. I've always planned to add them back, and the Harry Potter one was the design I liked.

      The Sonic one looks amazing! I love it. :) And yes, fandoms having distinctive colors is a good idea. 

      My only suggestion though, should the dot "•" be replaced with a smaller dot like "・"? I don't know if it would look better with a smaller dot. That's only minor though and doesn't matter much.

      But yes the navbox looks great!!

    • Thanks for agreeing with this idea and the Sonic navbox. I can't want to see the navboxes being used. Maybe I could create a Touhou navbox soon if you agree on creating and designing navboxes with the new structure of this talked idea ^^

    • Yes, that sounds good. Feel free to add navboxes to articles or make any more boxes. That's fine. :)

  • Hi. My apologies for bothering you about this. It seems that, whenever I use the box to create a ship, while it creates the ship page from a template, there's [[Category: that appears before the intro text. Is there a way to remove that? Thanks.

    • I see you've fixed the problem of the Team Hacker Boss Couple page, but yeah the [[Category: appears whenever the 'fandomI', characterI, 'characterII' or type part of the infobox isn't filled in. These three boxes are important and must be filled in, otherwise, [[Category: will appear. Hope that helps.

    • Acknowledged. I see the reason why it's been like that. I fixed the issue. If it's something you didn't intend to allow, I understand, and I'll revert the edit. I'm knowledgeable in coding, which is how I figured out why it was like that.

  • How do you make a vote in a blog post?

  • I'm wondering if there's a place in the Template to indicate a potential crush from at least one of the two characters, and if so, how can I indicate it? Thanks.

  • Actually I tried to do a "Data page" for a character (just for categorize characters of a fandom by sex/gender), but then I didn't know what I had to do when it said "Database outdated", plus the template didn't work for me at all. Can you fix the problem please?

    • We actually don't use data pages anymore. We used to run the wiki with a database-like system but it was unnecessary complex and new users didn't know how to use it, so we replaced it with Fandom portable infoboxes. I've removed most of the data pages and all of the data pages from ships are removed but some traces of the old system exist. I may have a way to autocategorise the gender categories though, I'll try to see if I can fix that.

    • Ok then. Thank you for the response.

  • Hello, I wanted to inform you that this user seems to had vandalised pages here, could your review their contributions and take any necessary action? Thanks!

  • Hiya,

    So I think I've worked out why the sublinks have no effect on DC's Legends of Tomorrow. I had the same experience on Dawson's Creek, so I'm guessing the template doesn't do well with apostrophes. :)

    Also, I made some new userboxes, hope they're proper.

    Kind regards,

      Loading editor
    • That so strange - I really don't know what the template doesn't like apostrophes. I know the category and sublinks system won't work with slashes, but apostrophes. I don't know. Anyway, if this occurs again, just write {{Sublinks|Dawson's Creek}} or whatever the fandom name is - that seems to work.

      I've been messing around with the location of the sublinks lately. I'm wondering if it would be better if the sublinks was in the infobox instead? I already tried adding it to the right rail, but I was unsuccessful. :(

      Oh, and the userboxes look brilliant! :)

    • Oh no, sorry, I kept saying sublinks but I actually meant the {{Category/Fandom}}! Sorry.

      I actually like the sublinks atop the page, I think it works :) (if you wanted an 'audience' opinion) :)

      Oh great, I'm glad you like them!

        Loading editor
    • Ah, well there was a problem with the Sublinks anyway so that's fixed. I see what you mean with the Category/Fandom - I'l try looking into it but I'm not quite sure why it isn't working with the apostrophe - so strange :|

      I like the sublinks as well and anyway can't get it to work in the infobox so I agree and will probably keep it at the top of page. Thanks for the input!

  • Hi!

    Just saw you're back :) Was wondering, any chance of poly + non-binary being added to the sublinks on pages?

    Thanks!

    Kind regards,

      Loading editor
    • PS: Also the character icons in Sublinks show 1 character = 1/2 character.

        Loading editor
    • Hi!

      Sure. I've added the poly + non-binary icons to the sublinks.

      I've also changed the character sublinks to stop the decimal numbers. Though the only problem with the character sublinks icon, is that it counts the sub-categories and the pages in a category. For example, on the Harry Potter (Fandom) page, the sublinks is 11 for female characters, but in the actual category it's 6 characters + 5 sub-categories. I'll have to see if I can fix that at some point.

      Anyway, would you be willing to become admin on the wiki? You have made lots of helpful edits to the wiki since I've been gone. :)

    • Hi!

      Thanks so much for the swift answer and edits! :D

      I noticed that too, so have chosen in most cases not to categorise the character folder (with the pages automatically added to the category via the infobox). Wasn't really sure how to proceed otherwise. :)

      Thank you so much for the offer, am flattered :) I would love to be an admin, but must let you know that I am currently an admin on 6 other wikis and so time I can apply to each is divided somewhat. But, if this is okay with you, I am on board! (no shipping pun intended)

      Either way I appreciate the opportunity!

      Thanks!

      Kind regards,

    • The category system is quite complex. I didn't design the templates and it's still a little confusing to me, but I'll try to tweak things to make it easier.

      I've added the rights and that's fine. I haven't been very active here anyway, so don't worry if you are unable to edit here sometimes. Anyway, thanks!
