      I think we could add it to Admin/Bcrat. Maybe even Wiki Mod?

    • Hi everyone, a staff member on the Wikia development team contacted me about the new app icon on the Main Page. I asked some questions so I will let you know what I found out in case the community asks about it.

      1) It is only available on iPad right now.

      2) They plan on making it available on other Apple devices.

      3) They eventually plan on making it available for Android.

        Loading editor
    • ^It also requires iOS6 *sigh* do they plan to make it compatible with iOS5 (and lower) as of now iPad1 users cannot download it.

        Loading editor
    • Sometimes apps from my iPad randomly end up on my iPod ... so, idk, but I got it on my ipad and ipod, and then deleted it from ipod lol...

      Also, do we have to have that thing on the main page? >_< (we already get enough ads of the same exact app here...)

        Loading editor
    • They said it is only on the Main Page, but since we get ads there anyway it doesn't seem to do any harm. Hopefully it makes the wiki easier to use on mobile devices once the other parts gets released for other operating systems and devices.

    • Hi, folks. I spoke with Wikia staff about the new forums not having an "archive" option. They indicated there is no plan to add that feature, but did suggest we create a new forum for "Archived Forum Threads". I have created that and will move some items that are "closed" to that section. I'm thinking it's not hard and fast, but things should be looked at for movement over to that board if they are closed 30 days or more. It does not delete anything but clears out some of the forums to find more current information.

      Update: I added another Archive-this one is just for the "Staff Selection" discussions and votes. It seemed that maybe those should be in a separate location in the event someone is looking for them. The "general procedure" discussions relating to changes in the process are in the general archive; these are just for the actual discussion/vote about individual users.

    • Howdy guys. I talked to Sean, a wikia staff, about how the IP blocking goes.. And it turns out, once you IP block someone, you can't just select (there's no magic tool) those who can get affected by the block.

      Recently I blocked a user for being underage, and as it turns out, this user shares the same IP Address as another user, who I know is not the same as the blocked one. I feel bad that this other user got affected by the block, so I am lifting the block on the one I blocked; however, I left his chat ban effective.

      This way, the other user who got affected, will be able to contribute to the site again.

      I will take responsibility of the other person I lifted the block from. If he does something terrible because I ended his block, I will try and encourse the consequences about this matter.

      Thank you for listening on this matter. Leave me a message on my wall if you have concerns about this, as we can't make this thread as a discussion thread. If you have better options to solve this problem, please let me know too. ~

    • Np Bane. 

      And Just a heads up to all: We have arranged how we're doing the Main Page Polls now. It is going to be a Monthly activity. We will be getting new polls on the first of the month, starting on July 1, 2013. You guys can give Admins suggestions on any interesting polls you can think of, and maybe they can use that for the coming month's polls. (Not here tough - on their walls) Thanks! ~

    • EDIT: (turns out quality looks fine)

      Howdy guys! I changed the Navigation Template's Friends Icon to the new one. If anyone has issues with the change, hit my wall.

      I know we are using like a couple of different Navigation Templates on other pages, (like the Decoration Navigation, etc), if someone spots a navigation template that isn't changed --because it isn't redirected to the Navigation Template-- let us know so we can do the changes. ~

    • Can we think about changing the colours for the seasonal infobox? The current combination is super hard to read |: 

        Loading editor
    • I said that ages ago in chat and I was ignored .-.

        Loading editor
    • I tried inverting the colors and made blue the background, but it wasn't any better.

      EDIT: Though we will have to move it to the Summer one in three days...

        Loading editor
    • I'm not... really sure who made it those colours, but that combination does not work in the least. I know we usually try to keep the colours close to what's on the dragons, but if it doesn't work in the infobox, then it doesn't work. I'm honestly surprised that's been allowed to stay nigh unreadable for so long.

      Maybe something to keep in mind for the future orz

        Loading editor
    • Oh, wow. It has been awhile since I looked at that page, but I agree that the font color and the background color do not contrast well for the purposes of the infobox. Perhaps the only other color which may keep to being similar to the dragon's colors which is currently still available is a brown close to what is on the wings.

        Loading editor
    • I haven't looked at it either which is why I'm only just seeing it because I was checking a comment /dies

    • Guys just a quick history on our ruling, I remembered when I added an edit blocked on my profile, with a log out link, (Ironically Tatz is the last post -__- lol) and an admin warned me about me adding them on my profile.

      Was it because there was a log out link only? Or is edit blocker restricted on users' profiles? ~

        Loading editor
    • LMAO that one time

      anyway..

      I believe that users are allowed to have an edit blocker on their profile, it is only not allowed if it trolls them and links to the log out page–which is why some of them were removed.

    • I'm going to create a new "Archive" section for discussions that end up with a page redesign (or a new page). I've been moving them into the "General" archives but it will be good to have them in one location.

      At the same time, I will create the Archive for the "Monthly News" publications. Although we probably don't want to archive those for a couple of months after they close, may as well create both at the same time.

        Loading editor
    • It would be nice to have the "Monthly News" archives accessible through News and Announcements.

        Loading editor
    • I don't think you can have a sub-forum to a forum. We can not archive them, but I thought the decision was that we would do so after a few months. They are all still accessible.

        Loading editor
    • Okay, we can figure out later if a link to the archives should be provided somewhere in the Monthly Highlights for easy referencing by the community who do not wish to navigate the forum boards.

        Loading editor
    • Howdy! Since we are closing the thread the same day when we open the new one, maybe as a closing statement, we can add a link to the new thread, and when we publish our second one we will have something like

      <--previous month's highlight--  * --next month's highlight--> 

      Something like that? ~

        Loading editor
    • Not sure you would want "next month's highlight" since you're not sure what will be happening that month... Kind of hard to highlight something that hasn't happened yet .-.

      That being said, I don't have a problem linking the previous month...

        Loading editor
    • That could work, I was talking with DT in chat about an link to the archive board with "Archive" as the link title, but the previous and next is a good idea.

        Loading editor
    • The previous month will be right next to the current month until it's archived. I think a link to the Archives is logical.

      Let's not keep discussing this on this thread, since it's not for discussions!

      I just want to inform all of you that I'll be inactive for one month plus. Most probably, until 25th November 2013. I'm actually quite busy preparing for my final exams and doing other stuffs in real life (application forms etc). I'll try my best to come on this site once in a while to reply notifications (if any). Hope to see you all soon. Take care :)

    • School and exams always come first before the wiki. We'll look forward to your return in November/December.

    • Hey, guys, quick note. When we open voting/discussion threads that have a requirement for users to have been registered before a certain date, can we include that date in the intro? I just modified Frost's voting thread to add it, after two users had voted. It can be hard to find the date, so this may help. Thanks.

    • That is not an issue with, it should probably be placed right above the closing date. I think it will be helpful for the community.

        Loading editor
    • I agree that it should be placed on the first part of the thread.

      On a side note, I am a little bit confused about the "registered before" considering that we have cases where we have old users, but changed accounts -- which will technically be "registered POST" the discussion thread. Like crtha's case.

      Are we going by registry... or...? ~

    • I think if a user is left a message and has a special situation that can be explained, you handle it on a case-by-case basis. I would certainly not remove Crtha's vote, since we know her circumstance. That's what we've done in the past when a user had to close an account and open a new one, as long as the original account was opened before the nomination.

    • How are we going to explain that to those we removed their votes from though? If ever they asked why their votes got removed, while we have special cases for others.

      Maybe we can put a side note about these types, or maybe use "newly registered users" instead of just registered? My english is bad, but I think this can be solved if we improve the terminology. ~

    • We could just edit into their vote, "Previously registered as: Userpage until ____"

    • ^That may work too. Good thinking Banez. ~

    • I've never had a user disagree with the decision to remove their vote; I don't know that we need to modify the policy unless we have a problem. I always leave a message. I think in the example you gave, it's easy to explain that Crtha was registered then had to close her account and open a new one.

      If a user can show they are the same as a closed account, they are clearly not the ones we are concerned with, who possibly create accounts just to vote for friends (or against non-friends).

      In any event, a policy change should go in a different forum, I think.

    • Wait, how is suggesting for a wording change a policy change? Anyway, okay, I understand. Thanks. ~

    • For the most part, leaving a message explaining seems to work for the time being.

    • Why are we putting a "registration date" restriction on a policy vote? I went back through them; I've never seen us limit that before. I don't know that it's a good idea; users are capable of reading all the inputs even if they are new.

      I know we did so on selection of staff, to avoid sock puppets, but think if we restrict votes from non-staff selection items, we should talk about it. Don't need to discuss it here; happy to do it on message walls or a separate "staff awareness" thread.

    • I thought ...I think I may have misunderstood. I thought voting was for people registered before. I thought that was odd on policy as well so I am removing it.

        Loading editor
    • Thanks, Bane. Yeah, we've only done that when voting for users-in the past, even anons could vote on policy changes.

    • Bane and I have been contacted by the Customer Support Manager at BFS asking if BFS could have a more active engagement with our admin team. She has provided her direct email and asked that we NOT publish it on the wiki but has invited me or Bane to contact her if we need clarifications or users report a lot of glitches, for example.

      Bane is adding a small blurb to main page, where it references that Admins can be contacted via message walls. We are NOT becoming BFS' new support line; they are just able to help us clarify information and would like to hear if we are hearing about glitches, etc.

    • Wow that is great, more than great.

    • Wow now they recognize our wiki, more! :D

      I still can't forget how they turned down my suggestion last time... Now I will have a more direct contact with them, they might actually be able to recogsider suggestions/ideas coming from us.

      I'll get the info to Bane, thanks. ~

    • It is great they reached out, but it mostly just to inquire about bugs and glitches, or if there is a huge question in content which affects the entire community. It isn't really for us to give them ideas and fan art, since they already look at the wiki (which they think the content/article pages are great) and they get emails about that already.

      Feel free to ask me more.

        Loading editor
    • Agree with Bane; they want to ensure we use this ONLY to get clarification on game mechanics and let them know about common glitches. I think they might do more reaching out to us.

    • I wonder if we could use that to ask them to estimate how long the magic event is going to last, according to how fast it is going now? This is frustrating many users :P

        Loading editor
    • Essiw, they won't give us information like that. Basically, they've just re-iterated the types of things their FAQ's already indicate-that it's "magic"!

        Loading editor
    • Unfortunately I think they just limited us with just what they told bane and DT to do. So we can't even communicate possible benefits for our wiki, in terms of suggestions, ideas, or queries about the like. ~

        Loading editor
    • They will help us with information that is generally available. For example, I have a query in to get the actual counts of habitats/level. She just needed to go back to the office before she could send that.

      This was the answer to "when will the event end"-as you can see, it's pretty much what has been said in FAQ and FB:


      The best way to know when the event is coming close to an end is to watch the Tines of the Scar. We posted to Facebook the picture of the first chunk on the Light side. This indicates that Light is 'winning' at the moment. As Dark catches up, that will appear on the Tines as well. Once one side fills to the top, that element will be sealed. The event will end when both sides are filled.

    • ah I see, thanks for the answer though :)

    • Howdy guys! As some, if not most, of you noticed, we are starting to have conflict with the decoration affiliates of our released dragons, where the decorations are getting affiliated with other dragons instead of the dragons they got released with during the past year or so.

      I don't particularly think that this needs a forum to sort out or solve this problem, so I am posting my proposal here, just to hear inputs from other members.

      I am planning to changing the current design into this one: http://dragonvale.wikia.com/wiki/User:JustinDaOne/RevisedReleaseTableProposal

      ^the current design has ALOT of coding frenzies in it.


      What do you guys think? For the "All Decors" we can link that word on the BRB section on the Limited Page. ~

        Loading editor
    • I don't think we are quite at that point yet. This is only one limited time frame that they moved two decorations over to other dragons for that limited time frame.

      I think it is fine how it is currently, and that adding the same affiliation multiple times in a third column is too much clutter of the same information.

        Loading editor
    • I don't think we even need the "Additional Release History Information". I don't think it matters that they don't release the same deco's every year with the same dragons. Just listing the deco's once is fine by me. What extra information do you get by adding the extra column, I doubt many people will really search for that, and they could also find that on the release calendar.

        Loading editor
    • I'd have to agree with Bane on this. They've only changed the decoration releases this once, for now. Bone, I believe, is the only dragon to be released with two decorations and therefore it's not likely that they'll change things like this again. Not saying it's not a possibility, but for now, I think the set up we have on the pages currently is fine.

      If we did change to something like what Justin has proposed, I'm not sure I agree with any dragon being affiliated with "All Decors" during BEB. For example: Bone was available with all the other Limited dragons and all of the Limited decorations. However, to say it was affiliated with "All Decors" implies that the Bone dragon was affilitated with Sham-rock... doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense to me. Even during BEB, the Bone dragon was still affiliated with Witch Hut and Jack-O-Lantern only, in my opinion.

    • Right now, the only other limited time period I can see this happening with is with Clover Cottage and Sham-rock which were released at the same time. I don't think we will be seeing any issue with the Pagoda, Paper Lantern, and Twisted Bamboo. Otherwise I think each dragon has only had one affiliated decoration released with it.

      So I think we may only really be looking at two limited time frames this could occur in, assuming that there will be a third limited dragon along with Clover Dragon and Celtic Dragon next year.

        Loading editor
    • I think we don't exactly need this currently, as others have said, as it only affects the halloween dragons, but this can definitely be used if we suddenly get more limiteds that have split afflilated decors like our Halloweens do right now.

        Loading editor
    • The other option might be to redefine "affiliated" decorations. It doesn't have to mean only that the decorations were released at the same time. To me, it should be "affiliated" if it is released for the same event. So, for Halloween, we have several decorations and three dragons. I would put all the decorations in the "affiliated" row for all three dragons. Same with Clover and the related decorations-they are all affiliated to the same event.

      To me, that also solves questions on things like Gift/Snow Globe. While they were not necessarily released together, the argument has been made that they are both affiliated with the winter holiday.

        Loading editor
    • I think we should keep it as it is. It is less confusing this way by having it released and re-released at the same time.

        Loading editor
    • Alrighty! We can leave it as it is for now then. Thanks for the responses; and I hope we won't get alot of cases like these in the future. ~

    • Just a heads up. I will be taking time off from the Wiki at least until after the holiday. I do not plan on coming on at all until Sunday afternoon/evening at the earliest, unless I am needed. I will be spending time with family for Thanksgiving.
