    Thanks!

  • Hey! I saw your message on my wall. It's nice to meet you! You seem to be the only admin here so I would appreciate your help in a few matters that I have questions with while I'm trying to get the wiki back to its former glory =)

    The first is a page move. I don't believe our money making guide is properly named, and I outlined my reasons on its talk page. The guide is concerned specifically with making coins, not other types of valuable monies, like chimes. Would it be okay with you if I moved it to one of the choices I outlined on the talk page?

    The other questions concern some community stuff. Since you're an admin, I would appreciate your input on [1], which is a poll I set up to decide on a new name, for reasons I outlined at [2]. I'd appreciate your input and your ability to confirm and implement the winning result after some time. =) Believe it or not, there are many parts of the game community where the other wiki is seen as stuck-up snobs, and more and more players seem to be realizing this every day. I'm not sure if you're in a clan or anything but I'm sure you've at least seen it mentioned around. Unfortunately, some players also see us as leeching off of them, because of our name, even though we were here first. I think a fresh new name could solve this and be a boon for us.

    My third question is if you could help clean up some pages that only admins seem to have the capability to do. There are a lot of pages that are marked for deletion or don't work, and they seem to have been left like this for some time. If you could delete them, or grant the power to do so to one of our more veteran editors, that would be amazing!

    I think we have a real shot here with people realizing that they're not always welcome at the other wiki. It would be great if we could capitalize on this and clean the place up before having a "re-opening". I can even post on Reddit asking for volunteers and things! Thank you =)

    • sorry for the crazy-long time it has taken to reply, but this wiki has a wiki manager: Bluerock. That would be the best person to ask

    • That's ok. Sorry for bothering you then but you're listed as the one and only administrator here and you've welcomed every user who has made a new account (but I'm now assuming that this was automated?). I don't mean to sound rude since you're a volunteer but if you don't want to be part of our community, and have no intention of fulfilling the traditional role that an administrator has on Fandom websites, then could you please remove yourself from the list and give the title to either Bluerock or another active member of our community? It seems that Bluerock (though very kind) also doesn't play this game and thus, through no fault of his own, he doesn't know what's going on in the community at large. It would be very helpful to have Bluerock (or another user) also welcome new members then. As the situation stands now, it's very confusing for new editors who want help from those with experience, as I can personally attest to. I would've thought that you'd be the first person to go to for help, when apparently the opposite is true.

    • I apologise for any confusion. The welcome is automated, so while i do wish you all welcome, i'm not in fact crafting those messages.

  • I was just wondering how you went about getting the "Add Topic" button for pages like Administrative Requests? Also is the template for that page allowed to be used on other wikis with credit/fair use?

    • It's not actually a template, it's part of the underlying skin. It's the same as the edit button, except that it adds a section to the page. Something similar could probably achieved with a template, but off the top of my head, i don't have any ideas (i've been away from Fandom for a long time and it would take a bit of time to see what is and is not possible). I'll ask around and get back to you. One thing to note is that even if i do find you a template, the new button created would not be in exactly the same place on screen.

      That said, if you do find a template on another wiki that does what you want, speak to the wiki admin about using it. Chances are they would be fine with that and giving attribution is simply good manners.

    • Okay thank you for that! Is there any Admins around on this wiki at the moment i can speak to about using templates?

    • Masuta Who is the admin here and could most likely help you.
