Hey there...I just turned on a brand new Wikia feature called "Message Wall". It seems to use the new and more newbie-friendly LiquidThreads technology, and I'm not sure yet whether I like it. It also appears to have automatically moved everyone's talk page to an archive; I wish I would have known that before turning it on!
Anyway, I figure perhaps we can try it out for a week or so and see if it's an improvement; if not we can always turn it back off. (Being an off-season, it's probably as good a time as any to try it out!)
Haha, yeah. I figure if Wikia thinks it's an improvement, we may as well give it a fair chance to see whether we agree. i'd say a week or even two might be required in order to get an actual feel for whether it's an improvement. My experience with LiquidThreads (surprisingly) is that I like them. I'm not too keen on having seen all the talk pages archived, and wish there was a workaround there, but I think we'll get over it.
The ONE idea I can't live with is the comments on the content pages. They encourage such things as "I love <insert actor name here>." Answer: "We're very happy for you; please go to Facebook and tell us all about your joy." I'm just old!<grin>
I've noticed over the past few weeks that I can't navigate directly to a page title anymore without a search being performed-- know anything about this? Also, for several months now the category quick access panel has been dysfunctional, and I wondered if you knew about that, too.
Actually, it looks like I have the same problem on every Wikia site with that extension...I'll have to confirm later, but I think it might be caused by my copy of Aurora or one of its add-ons. The problem I'm having is I click "Add category" and it never lets me type a category name.
Wikia changed the way search works. It's another step to make all things friendly to new users while ignoring those of us who are here all the time. It was on the Wikia staff blogs at the time. Hundreds of responses told them they had screwed up, but they went ahead anyway. In theory, the page you're looking for should be the first result.
When I made a new template yesterday, I did not have to search for the page, it worked with the "Go-Search". I was searching for a template (Spoilers). I guess someone must have enabled it. Whoever did it, Thanks.
Hello, I have a question about the image you uploaded and put on the homepage. It says August 13 as the official premiere date, yet that is a Monday. And on the NBC Grimm website it says Friday 9/8c, so they are not moving the time.
Where did you get it?
I was wondering if you think we should take it down, since the date is likely wrong.
The image came from the Grimm Facebook page. I'm hoping that go back to Fridays. Remember they showed one season one episode on a Thursday? I was worried that they were changing then. People are gonna have "a hole in their lives" after the Olympics end; maybe NBC is just trying to take advantage of that.
Jim, did you see the promo for the NBC series coming in the fall called Revolution, from J.J. Abrams? I went looking to start the Wiki for it, and took me a while to find that ObiDanKenobi already had started one. I am an admin there now. If it looks like something you'll be into, you should come over and be an admin there as well, especially since we lost Terra Nova and Alcatraz.
Hello. Quick Question: Should I move Hulda to the Pilot/Co-Stars page? I mean, he only showed up for one scene; it's not like he actually did anything to affect the storyline besides put Marie in the hospital and freak Nick out.
Does TV.com count as a good source? because they have the title of the first episode of season 2, and I've seen a lot of sites with the same title. I was going to make an article for it if its a good enough source.
I'm not sure, but I think it's something to do with us being included in the newest update of the wiki software. It's probably fixable if I knew what code to drop into common.cs, but I don't. If anyone does know, they're welcome to jump in here. Only admins can actually edit the page.
I personally think its best to have the overall episode number in the infobox for the season 2 episodes, but it also makes sense to have it the way you have it right now. I've seen other wikis do it both ways, so I'm not sure what would be best.
Oh, sure. Basically we work with staff on up-coming projects. We give input, etc. Sometimes I call San Fran and take part of conference calls- actually talking with staff about new features that will soon be effecting Wikia. If you are worried about my work, you can look at True Blood Wiki (where I am a Bureaucrat and have made over 12,000+ edits) and the Mayberry Wiki, where I am also a Bureaucrat. I am also admin on about 5-6 other sites. Rolling back just makes it easier when someone has entered gibberish or spam.
