hey buddy, I have a problem, I want to delete some images that I published and I did not know that they already existed, and I did not put the correct name to those images, I looked for an option to delete them but I did not find anything. I don't know if they just delete the Admins, or I'm stupid. In the case that only the Admins are deleted ... Could you delete it for me? In the event that there is an option to remove them ... Can you explain how? Thanks for your attention.
Hey buddy, I was wondering if there is a Discord server for this Wiki and if not would you like to create one using the DiscordIntegrator ImportJS. If not is there any server your in I can join in-case I need to contact you quickly? Thanks!
No there isn't any Discord server for this Wiki as there aren't that many active people. There's been a long time where I was the only person around. It's not worth it either too, as that'll need someone who has to keep the rules, people not posting anything hateful, harming or whatever. Too much work for me, and with such a low number of active editors (most disappear after a week again) not worth it. You can always just PM me directly on Discord, my user name is the same there as here (user number is #7134).
Hello! I got this idea about automatically categorizing game pages by their publishers and developers. This would be doable as they are all using the same Template:Infobox game. I already started playing around with the idea here: User:ZeroOne/Template:Infobox_game and rendering it here: User:ZeroOne/Sandbox. Now, the rendering doesn't work at all as this wiki does not have the Variables extension toggled on. So I was wondering if you, as an admin and a bureaucrat, would see my idea fit and would Special:Contact the Staff about enabling the Variables extension? It says at Help:Extensions that the Varibles extension will be automatically enabled on request.
I'll look into it. I was hoping to make pages more automatic and user friendly, as they're pretty text/code heavy at this moment, better templates and automatic categories are most welcome. But since soooo many images have been uploaded with incorrect names, info added incorrectly, and to this day info is still added incorrectly daily, I've had my hands pretty full. I still have thousands of pages to fix.
One thing I see in your template for now is the date like "27/2/2018". I've been changing this, as a lot of people worldwide would write that as "27/2/2018" and US people would write it as "2/27/2018". So I changed all dates in intro's to "27 February 2018" and changing the dates in infoboxes is a WIP (as I couldn't do that with my bot, since people mixed both systems already).
I seemed to have added a bunch of informatino regarding that game (since I couldn't find it or a wiki) and didn't realize it was the "steamtradingcards.wikia.com". So my first question is I guess, should I make my own Life is Hard wiki and cut & paste the information I made over to it? And my second is, do I need anything special or specific for the wiki as it'd be my first.
Yeah that info doesn't belong on this Wiki. You can indeed start a new Wikia for Life is Hard, or make a page about the game on the English Wikipedia. Although I think the text needs to be a bit more encyclopedic before it gets accepted there.
I'll leave the info here for a day or two so you can copy paste it from the page, but we'll need to remove it from this Wiki after that. So please do copy it for yourself (to a Word document, to Windows Notepad, or to another Wiki) as soon as you can. Saving it at least offline will make sure you can't loose it permanently. Not sure how you edit wikia's, but if you edit in source edit, you can copy paste the code 1 on 1.
Thank you for the thanks message for my contribution of the level 4 badge image on the Carmageddon: Reincarnation, just want to point out, someone went on, removed it and put it back on to take the credit for it, pretty lame and I think he needs sorting out as I have noticed he has been doing this a lot.
Hello. Hows it going? I wanted to talk to you about wiki administration here on the Steam Trading Cards wiki. I believe we talked about it a few months ago, but then I wound up not really doing anything about it... Anyway, I know you're busy with other things, but I think the wiki really needs active administrators, and that's something I would like to do. Lets face it, I'm on here too much already :P
I know you can't actually promote me. The wiki's only beaurocrat is Nebthtet, who hasn't been on in a year. I've looked into it and it appears the way to do it is the Wikia wiki adoption program, which allows people to adopt abandoned wikis. I know we're not actually abandoned, since you're around occasionally, but that's just the program they have. And, I guess, we've been abandoned by our beaurocrat.
Anyway, to do that, I would need your permission to pursue administrator rights, since you're the only active admin, as well as posting a blog to see if any users objects. I'm not trying to replace you here - as I said, I think we just need an administrator who's able to be active, and right now you're the only one on the wiki and unfortuantely not able to be on much.
I think its an abosolutely great idea to promote you to admin. I'd really like you as a colleague and i understand its the best for this wiki.
I'd like to be more active myself, but unfortunately my life has been quite busy the last couple of months. I've actually never been so busy in my life before :) But i do plan on becoming more active.
Beside from that, i still think you should become admin and i think, since Nebthtet abandoned this wiki, i guess its best if you would indeed adopt the wiki or at least become an administrator. I support you fully in this process! And as a formality: i give you explicit permission. I hope you have everything you need now. If you need anything else, let me know! If Wikia wants a reference, you can show them this message or tell them to contact me by e-mail.
Great! :) Just posting a link to this thread should be enough, I believe. The next step will be me posting a blog essentially asking for comments from other active members, to make sure there's no objections. I'll do that in a bit, then waiting a week for replies. Assuming there aren't any, this should hopefully be pretty easy.
Hi. I just noticed tonight that there's a bunch of images from the page Rush Bros that are missing. I can't really see the history of deleted files, but it says you deleted them on May 28th. Was there something wrong with them, or?
No not really. I only delete pictures that are not in use. So i can't see why they got deleted. I've looked at the history of the files and i the only reason i can think of is that they somehow ended in the list of unused files. There is currently no other reason why i delete files and the files weren't marked for deletion. I guess that was a stupid mistake. Thanks for noting, i'll keep an eye on it in the future to see if the program adds more pics to the list of unused files without them actually being unused.
That's kind of odd. Ah well - I replaced them already. Just hope there aren't any others out there that are missing too. I just wound up stumbling across that page by chance, since it was supposed to otherwise be done.
Hello. I recently made pages for the trading cards for Aqua Kitty - Milk Mine Defender. II filled in all the necessary information, added the images, and added categories, yet, for some reason, the links on the main Aqua Kitty article underneath the card images are still red and, although they bring you to the pages with all the card information, they automatically open the pages in edit mode. This has never happened with any other game whose card pages I've created. What am I doing wrong?
I thought I'd take a look at it, and although I have no idea what the problem was, it seems to be fixed now. All I did was make a completely unrelated edit to the main game page and the links fixed themselves. Wikia uses a cache system so it doesn't have to rebuild pages each time they're viewed: perhaps that screwed up somehow and it was displaying an outdated version of the page with red links. I've never seen that happen, but its the only thing I can think of...

I think this is spot on because I've been getting another error frequently as well. Sometmes I'll try to publish my edits and this message wll appear below the text box:
"Error: Exception Caught: FauxRequest::getRequestURL() not implemented"
This is easily fixed, for me, by closing out of the publishing box, going back in" and clicking "Publish" again, after which t'll save just fine. I never reported it prior to this since it appeared to keep the edits after doing what I stated before.
