Cutting the toolbar in half[edit source]

It's been discussed. Requesting for the bottom half of User:Xbony2/common.css (the stuff under the commented out part) to be merged with the common CSS. It's a bit more than copy-paste if you do it right, but I think you can figure it out. -Xbony2 (talk) 20:27, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

Eh, I don't really like how this looks. Rather than a huge toolbar it's a cramped toolbar. Neither really look very good imo :| -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 21:07, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
That's how I felt too at first, but try using it for a while. -Xbony2 (talk) 22:04, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
After using it for a month, how do you feel? Thinking of it as cramped makes sense for an initial reaction because of the scale change, but is about the same size as Wikipedia's and other wiki's. -Xbony2 (talk) 14:16, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
I want the logo in the corner to be larger, like it is on other wikis. My current CSS does that but it has a red line through the middle which is ugly. The bar itself is fine. -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 18:46, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

I don't think I should be able to edit this page as an anonymous user. I was just clicking around from Foundry's wiki page. -- The preceding unsigned comment was added by 172.68.59.137 (talkcontribs)

172.68.59.137- no, you have every right to. Anyone can request and discuss stuff. -Xbony2 (talk) 01:16, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Spritesheet extension missing[edit source]

The spritesheet extension we were using disappeared. To be honest I'd rather use multiple images than it anyway, since it's only used on Turbine (Advanced Generators); it doesn't have much of a benefit if any benefit at all, but it should be reinstalled or Turbine (Advanced Generators) should be fixed. -Xbony2 (talk) 23:21, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Okay, since nobody cares, I'm probably going to split it up if nobody says anything. -Xbony2 (talk) 15:09, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
Get in contact with Scott first. -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 18:17, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
Personally I don't see any reason you couldn't just make this into a standard template using the sprite sheet image as a background image for divs / table cells etc. with positioning adjustments or offsets made based on the tile selection code used. I usually do this by nesting an absolute-positioned div inside a relative-positioned container (either div or td) with expressions built with left and top offsets using a fixed size for the container being used as the viewport on the image. You use the image as either a background setting for the absolute positioned div, or simply include it inside that, while you set overflow to hidden for the relative part of the container.

Sokratis' wikipoints balance[edit source]

On Special:WikiPoints- take away 21701 from "Sokratis12GR330661", and add 21701 to "Sokratis12GR". He had his account broken a while ago. -Xbony2 (talk) 17:19, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

I am unable to remove wikipoints from the former. It is as if that account doesn't exist. 🐇Retep998🐇🐰Bunny Overlord🐰 17:43, 20 November 2016 (UTC)
Maybe you can request the deletion of the account after adding the 21701 points to sokratis? IndestructiblePharaohVII 19:46, 20 November 2016 (UTC)
It is a deleted account. Although according to Special:WikiPointsAdmin, "It is not possible to manually award negative points. To remove points, check the box in the "Rev" column next to the points you wish to revoke and press "Save revocation"". -Xbony2 (talk) 23:02, 20 November 2016 (UTC)
Nothing is displayed on that page for Sokratis12GR330661 so I can't revoke anything from it. 🐇Retep998🐇🐰Bunny Overlord🐰 23:04, 20 November 2016 (UTC)
Ugh, I guess we should poke curse. -Xbony2 (talk) 23:47, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

Expanding editor rights[edit source]

I want to add the following rights to the editor role:

  • patrol (mark others' edits as patrolled). Users like intipablo and Lykrast pretty often respond before admins do.
  • translate-groupreview (change workflow state of message groups). Basically, these are all stuff that the translator admin group had that the editor group wouldn't hurt to have. Intipablo in particular wanted to update the aggregate groups.
  • translate-import (import offline translations)
  • translate-manage (manage message groups)

-Xbony2 (talk) 11:25, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

I am in favor of adding patrol. However, is making understanding translation markup a prerequisite for getting the editor group a good idea? -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 17:24, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
They already have the right to mark pages for translation. I don't see how having the right means they are required to use it or learn how to use it, just that they can if they want to without going through the bureaucracy of applying for admin or whatnot. -Xbony2 (talk) 21:07, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
ok I've done it, it'll be live soon (tm) -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 20:22, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
