AE2 Color Applicator[edit source]

I saw that you moved something. I was wondering if I had done something wrong. DiamondKnight19 (talk) 01:56, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

DiamondKnight19: nah, not really. The AE2 navbox disambiguated some stuff that doesn't need to be disambiguated. -Xbony2 (talk) 04:56, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

Quark/de[edit source]

Please deal with Quark/de. Thanks. -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 23:45, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

page to protect[edit source]

Hello, can you semiprotect (edit only autoconfirmed) Energy Core (Draconic Evolution)‎‎? Almost every second edit is vandalism. Qwertxquartx (talk) 18:37, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, that's a bit odd. Protected. -Xbony2 (talk) 02:41, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

Better standart-deletereasons?[edit source]

Hello, I would like to see the default deletion reasons (currently stored at MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown) being "polished up" a bit, following the Wikipedia pattern. I have created a draft for this: (see source code for complete thing)

  • General
    • Other reason
    • G1: Nonsense, vandalism or spam
    • G2: Test page
    • G3: Unambiguous copyright infringement or plagiarism
    • G4: Insufficient content
    • G5: Duplicated article
    • G6: Non-controversial cleanup
    • G7: One author who has requested deletion or blanked the page
    • G8: Page depending on a nonexistent or deleted page
  • User pages
    • U1: User request to delete page in own userspace
    • U2: Userpage or subpage of a nonexistent user
  • Redirects
    • R1: Redirect to a deleted or nonexistent page
    • R2: Recently created, implausible redirect/typo

Of course this still looks quite chaotic, e.g. the pure section links should be replaced by redirects like "FTB:DP#1", or the links to wikipedia. Besides, I have to say that I can't judge now whether the whole thing really makes sense, the idea just came to my head. Strangely enough, I get Wikipedia reasons when deleting files, but nowhere else? Qwertxquartx (talk) 16:54, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

The original was ripped directly from Wikipedia. Jinbobo, one of the original admins, copied a lot of things from Wikipedia, and to be honest I think it was a pretty bad idea to do much of what he did, since the scale of this wiki is entirely different from Wikipedia's and we have very different issues. Not hating on him, there weren't a lot of other wikis to copy from and Gamepedia wasn't a thing like it is today, but his solutions weren't great for the long term. I think it's better here to have a simplified set of reasons and a simplified deletion policy and not link to Wikipedia (their policies are not ours). We should probably finish a deletion policy before linking to it also. -Xbony2 (talk) 20:53, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
Okay. Thank you for your fast reply! Qwertxquartx (talk) 14:15, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
gamepedia notifications helped :P -Xbony2 (talk) 23:50, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Updating Tilesheet[edit source]

" Xbony2, me (and probably Qwertxquartx) would like you to update the Thermal Foundation tilesheet." - AstroFlux (talk) (contributions) 11:36, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

" Astroflux put it on my talk page." -Xbony2 (talk) 11:59, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

I did this, but forgot that Gamepedia is updating their back-end. I can upload these files once the back-end migration is over. --SizableShrimp🦐 (talk · contribs) 21:27, 18 August 2020 (UTC)
Welp, guess I have an other person to bother now :P - AstroFlux (talk) (contributions) 02:05, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
Hopefully can some time next week. Need to return home. -Xbony2 (talk) 05:07, 21 August 2020 (UTC)
nvm its done by the shrimp. I'm tired sorry. future request should probably be on FTBW:Tilesheet requests. -Xbony2 (talk) 05:20, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

Module:Language cleanup[edit source]

Currently, the Language module does not support passing in parameters directly from {{#invoke}}. I have added this to support, along with cleaning up the modlink function to my fork of the module at Module:SizableShrimp/Language. This adds support for parameters when using #invoke and also fixs a bug that was present in the modlink function. It also adds comments for each function detailing which template uses it. If this could be copied over, that would be great; yes, I did test it. -- SizableShrimp🦐 (talk · contribs) 19:36, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

reversed changes. This made most things wrapped in {{L}} completely disappear like this ->. So yeah. -Xbony2 (talk) 04:58, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

Discussion of the Effect template[edit source]

Right now, the {{Effect}} template does not support translation. This is not hard to fix, but there is discussion needed on how we should require translators to translate the effect names. There are two approaches that could be taken to solve this.

  1. Have translations be made for the tile in the EFFECT tilesheet.
    • A con of this is that tiles must be translated one at a time, since the Extension:Tilesheets extension does not support translating entire tilesheets or more than one tile at a time.
      • This problem with the Tilesheets extension may be solved with a future update. However, because of the current status of UCP, I do not see this being possible at this time.
  2. Have a page similar to Template:Vanilla/types located at Template:Effects/types.
    • This has the added benefit of putting all the translations in one place and on one page; however, tiles added to the EFFECT tilesheet must be manually appended to this page.
    • I believe this option is better at this time because of the problems with tile translations listed above.

Honestly, this section would probably be better suited on the Centralized discussion page, but I thought I might as well list it here since I have changes requested for Module:Language above. Also, it's not like anyone responds on the Centralized discussion page either (see ftbw:Centralized discussion#1.14 Vanilla renamed items). Anyways, that's all. Thanks. -- SizableShrimp🦐 (talk · contribs) 19:36, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

Yeah in the future I would put it on the CD but just link me here. And yeah I would go with the tile translation, even if it's a bit annoying, it's the absolute standard for translations of tiles. EFFECT is just another tilesheet. The template is not too commonly used that this is a major issue. Editors (the group) can translate tiles manually, and there's not a lot of tiles. Might ask Qwertxquartx and Qunynawy‎ to translate them for some of the stuff that exists rn. -Xbony2 (talk) 04:48, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
