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)

Remove rights from Sigilbaram[edit source]

Sigilbaram has a bunch of special rights because they were Gamepedia staff and helped transition the wiki over. However, I don't believe these rights are currently required since they are no longer Gamepedia staff, so I recommend that they be removed. -Xbony2 (talk) 13:26, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

There, I got in my admin bureaucrat action for the TIME UNIT. 🐇Retep998🐇🐰Bunny Overlord🐰 13:37, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
That's a bureaucratic action, that doesn't count, nice try though. -Xbony2 (talk) 13:41, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

SirMoogle for banhammer rights[edit source]

SirMoogle has been part of the wiki for a while, and he's contributed a bunch, so I'd like to give him banhammer rights, which will let him ban evil vandals and whatnot. I think he is trustworthy and mature and all that, so I don't really see any reason to vote against him. Maybe it could be argued he doesn't need banhammer, but I think it could help and I highly doubt it could hurt. He appeared to accept my nomination on Discord. Anyway, there are no written or usual conventions for a banhammer vote as far as I know, so unless anyone has a problem this vote will end in seven days. -Xbony2 (talk) 21:53, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Support[edit source]

  1. Pictogram voting support.pngSupport. -Xbony2 (talk) 21:53, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
  2. Pictogram voting support.pngSupport. I don't mind wielding the banhammer, although I think TheSatanicSanta and Xbony2 typically get them first. --SirMoogle (talk) 23:22, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
  3. Pictogram voting support.pngSupport on behalf of Sokratis12GR:

    -Xbony2 (talk) 10:48, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
    Dat spelling tho. (says ImmortalPharaoh7 :), pls no hurt meh) IndestructiblePharaohVII 15:36, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
    Support approved --sokratis12GR Staff 16:28, 18 September 2017 (UTC).
  4. Pictogram voting support.pngSupport I have no choice in arranging the blocks under Bolshevik rules what they say goes. The rule of the game is we all are the same and my blocks must create unbroken roads. -IndestructiblePharaohVII 13:58, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
  5. Pictogram voting support.pngSupport. I don't see why not, we don't really need that (I think he's in a similiar timezone to Xbony and Santa, so not really for coverage), but it doesn't hurt and may come in handy once in a while. --Hubry (talk) 15:23, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
    Hmmm.... that means that I can apply for banhammer cuz I'm in a different timezone \o/ (I'm not that active atm though so I don't think it's a wise choice, also sorry for not contributing in the last editathon.... uhm... Doomfist was playable in Overwatch :D ) -IndestructiblePharaohVII 15:36, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
  6. Pictogram voting support.pngk -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 20:58, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
  7. Pictogram voting support.pngSupport. In my opinion, such kind of users must have additional rights to the wiki. ~ Dentedharp90041 (talk) 11:23, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Against[edit source]

  1. Pictogram voting oppose.pngAgainst. Failed to provide a sufficiently high quality rabbit gif. 🐇Retep998🐇🐰Bunny Overlord🐰 23:00, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Discussion[edit source]

Decision[edit source]

Glad to see the almost unanimous support (only almost due to Retep's jovial requirement). Passes. Calling on Retep998 or TheSatanicSanta to promote SirMoogle when they come online. -Xbony2 (talk) 11:15, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Done -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 23:35, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

DACP Appointment for Defiled Lands[edit source]

I've been told by xbony2 on the Discord server to make a new section here to ask to be appointed as an editor/curator for my own mod Defiled Lands, so hoping I wrote it at the correct place. Lykrast (talk) 04:29, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting support.pngSupport. -Xbony2 (talk) 11:10, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support.pngHonestly I don't really understand why we still have this program but I suppose I support you doing this because you write quality articles and stuff. -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 21:27, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.pngMeh. I'm pretty sure if you make the mod you can declare whoever you want to be curator for that mod without going through any sort of vote. So I guess the only thing we're voting for here is whether to make you an editor, to which I can't be bothered reading your existing contributions to make any sort of informed vote. 🐇Retep998🐇🐰Bunny Overlord🐰 21:40, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting keep.pngk. It's been 3 days without anyone objecting so I made Lykrast an editor. 🐇Retep998🐇🐰Bunny Overlord🐰 07:50, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support.pngSupport. I don't see why not. --SirMoogle (talk) 22:38, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
