Hello ! I am an Administrator here on the DragonVale Wiki. If you need help or have questions, please ask! I am frequently available and will try to reply to any messages as soon as I am able to.
Being an Administrator means that the community has entrusted me with special tools to help fight spam and to keep this Wiki a nice, organized environment. Some of the special abilities Administrators have is the ability to block other users from editing, rollback spam and vandalism, edit and delete comments, images and pages, move files, manage threads, and update Wiki style and scripts. If you need any help with the aforementioned topics, then I should be able to help.
Administrators are also entrusted with special chat moderating tools. While in the chat room, I can kick or ban someone from the chat room if they are misbehaving. If I am not currently available in chat, please send me a message if there is a user misbehaving and I will deal with it as soon as I receive the message.
Hi, I wanted to give you a heads up that the wiki's forums are going to be migrated to the Discussions relatively soon as part of the overall site's upgrade to the "Unified Community Platform," which includes a much newer version of MediaWiki and more robust and modularized proprietary features like Discussions. If you haven't seen it already, there's a news blog about the migration and some updates to the Discussions platform here. Discussions does not have wikitext support as it's not built in MediaWiki, but content that's transferred over from the Forums will have its formatting preserved as HTML, so it shouldn't look substantially different (except for more advanced content). It also does not allow anonymous contributions. Post-migration, existing links to forum posts will redirect to their respective Discussions posts. You can find a bit more info on the archived FAQ thread here. Please let me know if you have any questions about this process, and make an announcement about it if you'd like! Thanks.
Hello! I have a dragon checklist in my profile, and have noticed it is missing many dragons. I think I read somewhere you made a program that automatically updates it, but I don’t if that is working anymore. Is there a way to manually update it? Anyway, it’s not really important, but an update to it would be welcome!
Hi! Sorry for my reply to your notice on removing/relocating pages, I had been a tad grumpier than usual. I was simply wondering, from where do you receive information that DragonVale is closing up shop?
Hello, I'm from another wiki. I'm trying to have a switch template simmilar to the one working here, but it doesn't matter what i do, it won't work. I was wondering if you, or someone who understands about this could help me figure out the problem.
Hi, glad I was able to help. It looks like your Plantilla:Toggle had an extra line break at the bottom causing a line break to appear in Plantilla:Switch under each image. I made an edit here removing that extra line and now your Switch template works as expected. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Everything looks correct, I'd guess it's probably an issue with the Wiki configuration. Are any other scripts in ImportJS working? If not I think you may have to contact Wikia and ask them to enable scripts on that wiki. You may also be able to find something in Special:AdminDashboard. It also seems the editor is different than other wikis. Wikia may be using that wiki as an experiment to test new features which may be interfering with some JS. If it's only the Toggle import that's not working let me know and I'll take a closer look.
It's me again, I have copied word for word the CSS, JS & ImportJS from this wiki, also the Toggle and Switch Templates, but it's still not working, could you please check if I am missing something? I'll make you admin if needed.
I believe you're an admin now. I have really no idea what's the problem, if there's no way to make this work, i'll contact them, for what i understand, this is supposed to be a really simple script/template. Also there's another problem i have, when i make colums, usually after the 3rd column the text has a different height, even though i just copy the text from the first column and paste it below to make more columns. Here you can see what i mean https://crazydinopark.fandom.com/es/wiki/Arque%C3%B3pterix (in the part of the stats below is more obvious, after Defense, the Health, Speed and Turns columns have their text higher)
I honestly think the reason may have something to do with that terrible editor Wikia has installed on that wiki. I can't even paste text without it trying to convert it to WikiText, which breaks what I'm trying to paste. I would request Wikia to disable the editor so it behaves like this wiki and your other wiki. The options are inconsistent and don't work, it tries to autoformat code you type into WikiText, and worst of all breaks pages. Please let me know if you find a way to disable that editor because trying to use it is useless at the moment.
Also it looks like your Plantilla:Switch template was broken for toggles more than 4, so I fixed that for you too.
Well, It is working now, some times I have to refresh the page to make it work, but other than that it's working fine. I don't know if they'll disable that editor because as far as I know, they want every Wiki to work like that in the future, so this Wiki might have those changes in the future.
Hi Messier, the invite is discord.gg/EFHwSbR, however it's not very active as I haven't officially announced it due to a plethora of reasons. And now that DV is shutting down, I'm not sure if it's worth going forward with it.
The Blue Moon Dragon and the Nightmare Dragon breeding and incubation times are wrong on their respective dragon pages, they should be 29 hours 31 minutes 48 seconds and 36 hours 28 minutes 33 seconds respectively, as per the Breeding Times page. The upgraded times should be 23 hours 37 minutes 26 seconds and 29 hours 10 minutes 50 seconds respectively. Could you change this?
Also, when I was adding the upgraded time for the Macabre Dragon, I wasn't sure whether to put it as 40 S, 40.8 S (the accurate version) or 41 S. For Blue Moon, the upgraded seconds are actually 26.4 S and for Nightmare it is 50.4 S.
Also, as I was about to create my profile, I found the default page templates, such as dragon page and habitat page. May I ask, how do you add those? I'm an admin for Rodeo Stampedia, and it would be pretty useful to have those.
