FTR Posse Edit

Hi there!!! Just wanted to say thank you for fixing the Category problem. I tried last night for awhile, but with no avail. Thanks again!!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by FTR Pisces (talkcontribs)

I guess I was just wondering how something like that happens. It was there on that posse category page and then just one day it was gone. Do you think someone might have spitefully removed it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by FTR Pisces (talkcontribs)

Haaaaaa! Okay then, problem taken care of!!! Thanks again!!!!!

Oh, Fiiiiiine...Edit

First, you 'borrow' my idea of making a talk page archive and then you go and do it all fancy-schmancy just to make me feel jealous.

Hello Edit

Hello, Anon.

It's been awhile, hasn't it? Anyway, I think the virus is gone. I found a program that could deal with it and now I'm in the 30 day trial. I'm sorry for not editing so much, but now that I have my PC back, I hope to get back into it. Anyway, just wanted to tell you that.

-Hobbes (Talk) 00:43, March 17, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I saw that. I really like it. :)

It feels weird, though. I edited a wiki, if not here then I found somewhere else to edit, every day and then I just stopped. I guess I made a habit of it... not that that's a bad thing :)

Viewing source Edit

General wiki question - is there a way to view source on an active page without going into Edit mode? On a locked page, the "view source" option appears where the "Edit" button would usually be, but I can't figure out how to view source without Editing on an unlocked page. I've checked in Preferences, My Tools customization, etc. I notice that viewing source on a locked page is actually the "Edit" action in the URL, so I'm guessing a separate function isn't available, but wanted to confirm.

I'm doing a bunch of pages where I want to compare source to verify equivalent formatting and it would be nice to get it in one step rather than three (edit ... view source ... back out of edit).

Alright, I'm StumpedEdit

I have been attampting to put in a line in the Template:Animal Infobox for voice actor that only shows in the article if that field is filled in, but no matter how I code it, it constantly puts the voice actor line into every animal.

The only reason I care is that I've discovered the voice actor for the Sasquatch and want to include it. However, no other animals speak, so I only need it to show in one place - the Sasquatch page.

Can you help me make this happen?

Cheers!

-JackFrost23 21:35, March 21, 2011 (UTC)

Indeed, it does work. Thanks a million! :)
However, the description field text is now center aligned instead of left aligned. I looked at the template but couldn't figure out what was causing that...

Your Talk Page Was VandalisedEdit

User:A_name decided that he didn't like the info on the Boar Skin page so he wiped it, but then he also didn't seem to like what was on your talk page so he wiped that out, too.

I have restored your talk page (as well as Boar Skin) and blocked this idiot, but you should probably protect your talk page from here on out.

Two active vandals Edit

Mr Blobby and Spuds1974 have been active this morning vandalizing a number of pages. Chief Frank 001 seems to have undone many of them already and I caught a couple myself. Spuds' profile indicates possible activity on the GTA wiki as well.


2ks4 14:46, March 29, 2011 (UTC)

No worries, I blocked them both. This was Spuds' third block so it was a good long one - hopefully after a month vandalising our pages will have lost its charm. Or hopefully he'll move on to something else.
Cheers for reverting the edits.

Have You Seen This? Edit

Check out the infobox on this page at the Spanish version of the wiki:

http://es.reddead.wikia.com/wiki/Oso_pardo

I REALLY like that wood-grain pattern they're using as the background color for the infobox - it looks pretty sweet in my opinion.

Should we 'borrow' it? And if we do, do you know of some way of changing it universally?

Let me know...

Cheers!

Rolling Block Brigade Edit

Hello, Anon.

IRISH ZONKEY and an unregistered contributor have been editing the American Army page relentlessly. I left IRISH ZONKEY a message and I believe that it has stopped. Now, however, they created a page entitled The Rolling Block Brigade. I can't delete it and last time I renamed a page and put "Posse:" in front I don't think it worked

Also, Sam Hogan moved his user page to YOURHAND21 and you know better how to deal with these things.

Changing Posse Names Edit

I just wanted to let you know that OMGiTzViN keeps re-naming his posse. I think he's doing it so when you type "Posse:" in the search bar his posse is the first to show up. I think it's obnoxious and would like to know if you can deal with it. Thanks.

Town defenders Edit

Hello, Annonnimus.

I'd like to request the deletion of the category "Town defenders". If you'd like to read my reasons why, I've left a message on GeneralGoose's talk page. Thanks.

Sláinte mhaith! - Hobbes (Talk) 01:10, April 9, 2011 (UTC)

Right, well, it's up to you on this matter. You recently purged alot of the categories in order to simplify things, right? I didn't think the "Town defenders" did a good job on that. Personally, I think the small section in the interactions section is enough. Alot of the NPCs are involved in defending towns so it wouldn't be a small category. That's just my opinion, though. You're the category-man, so you decide.

Article title question Edit

Anon,

Longish question for a largish update I've been working on.

I've done a lot of work on the Multiplayer Challenges, having created the Multiplayer Challenges/Racing Challenges, Multiplayer Challenges/Stronghold Challenges, and Multiplayer Challenges/Undead Overrun Challenges pages in the past. I have a page ready offline for the Weapons Challenges category that will merge the excessive individual challenge pages into a single category page in a much more efficient (and complete) manner. Similar updates for the other challenge categories are also in progress.

My question is about a naming option I was considering. After creating the pages referenced above, I ran across the Red Dead Revolver Walkthrough page. Each individual chapter of the walkthrough is a separate page named in what I'll call "slash format." For example, Red Dead Revolver Walkthrough/Chapter 2: Bounty Hunter. On this chapter page, under the title is a link back to the main walkthrough page that seems to be created automatically because of the "slash format" naming.

I think this would be perfect for the Multiplayer Challenges category pages (e.g. Multiplayer Challenges/Weapons) since it encompasses the page hierarchy and automatically links back to the main page. With this in mind I have three questions:

  1. Are there any downsides to this approach vs. just naming the page Weapon Challenges (Multiplayer)?
  2. Are there any additional options/advantages/hidden features to this approach beyond the automatic link-back I noticed?
  3. Users should still be able to enter "Weapon Challenges" in the search box and find the page. While I know this can be done by setting up a redirect page with that name, is there a better way where a page can be given multiple aliases that would show up in a search? I've seen the Shortcut page here and on Wikipedia, but I don't think that does what I want. I'd just like to avoid creating excess redirect pages if there's another option.

Thank you for your time.

2ks4 19:06, April 10, 2011 (UTC)

The new page Multiplayer Challenges/Weapon Challenges is in place now. I still have some work to do on the page, but I'm happy with how the subpage idea worked out. The only issue is with the redirects.
I created the redirect page Weapon Challenges (Multiplayer), which redirects appropriately to the new page. Likewise, I've started converting the old individual challenge pages like Bolt Action Assassin Challenges (Multiplayer) into redirects (while marking the "Headshots" equivalents for deletion).
The problem is that neither of these pages shows up in the auto-complete when searching. I understand that in general having only "proper" destination pages show up in search would be a good idea, but in this specific case the whole point of the redirect pages is to ensure that users searching for "Weapon Challenges" will find what they're looking for (and users looking to create a "Weapon Challenges" page will see that one already exists).
What determines which pages auto-complete in the search box? I've searched through the help files and haven't found a clear answer. Do these redirect pages not show up in auto-complete because they have no categories assigned or is it simply that redirects never show up? I've seen examples on Wikipedia, however, where redirect pages will auto-complete and the only difference I could see was a category-adding template (for instance, puma concolor redirects to cougar, but also shows in the search auto-complete).
I just added a test category to one of the pages - I'll see if that solves the problem once things are indexed, but let me know if you have other ideas.

Proper animal item categories Edit

Anon,

I fixed the animal item infobox template a while ago (price was not being displayed before) and in doing so revealed that the price field was entered incorrectly in many items in any case (capital "Price" vs. "price", other issues). I've been addressing these for each item as I see them.

I know you've been working on cleaning up categories and since I'm touching a lot of these pages I figured I could clean up the categories for those while I'm there. Here is the category list for a typical animal item page vs. what I think it should be. Let me know if I have the right idea.

Usual list: Items, Redemption Items, Animal Items, Hunting, Skinning, Single Player
My expectation: Animal Items, Skinning

Hunting and skinning could be somewhat redundant if a purpose is not clearly defined, so I was thinking Hunting would apply to (intact) animals while skinning would apply to animal parts. Single Player is redundant since skinning is only done in single player (while hunting applies to animals and challenges in multiplayer as well).

2ks4 15:18, April 14, 2011 (UTC)

I've been gradually doing the cleanup as noted above. In the process I realized that "Animal Items" and "Skinning" have about 95% overlap, but for now I think they're still both valid as one is an activity and one is an item (verb vs. noun).
While cleaning up the associated category pages to better define them and reviewing the category tree, I came up with a question (a long one as usual :-) :
In your opinion, what is the distinction and proper hierarchy for the categories Activities, Gameplay, and Features? They are not well defined on the category pages and seem muddled and incomplete at this time. I'm trying to figure out where Hunting and Skinning belong among these (as well as assisting with any general clean-up for those categories). My interpretation of the terminology:
  • Gameplay should be a top level category (applicable to Redemption and Revolver, unless broken into separate subcategories for each) that covers everything related to actual gameplay, whether part of the action controlled by the player (riding, shooting, skinning, etc.), game concepts (gang hideouts, stranger missions, etc.), or part of the mechanics of playing the game (HUD, menu items, multiplayer game modes, etc.). This would be primarily a "category of categories" - it is possible that no pages would be in the category, with all pages belonging to one of the subcategories.
  • Activities would be specific game elements that the player actively participates in and can do repeatedly. The category would be a subcategory of Gameplay. This category would include gambling, hunting, gang hideouts, bounty hunting, etc. It would not include story missions or stranger missions (which would be in separate categories beneath Gameplay) or multiplayer game modes (which would be under the Multiplayer tree with Multiplayer being a category under Gameplay).
  • Features would be related to the interface and general concepts of the game as well as "meta" items, moreso than actual gameplay. The category would be separate from, and at the same level as, the Gameplay tree (though a few items within the category would overlap). This category would include Multiplayer, the soundtrack, DLCs, challenges, trophies, etc.
Let me know if I have the right idea with these descriptions.

Javier Escuella Edit

Hello, Anon.

I don't know if I did it, but I see a problem with the Javier Escuella page. It looked alright, but I undid an edit in the trivia section and know when I look at it I see this:

  1. The infobox is only the very top part that says "Javier Escuella". There's nothing else.
  2. There's a dozen "Early Life" sections.

Now, like I said, I don't know if I did this (or if anyone else sees this, for that matter), but I don't know how to fix it. Sorry.

Revolver Templates Edit

Hello, Anon.

Today, after much searching, I got Red Dead Revolver. I'm already a couple missions in and it's great! However, after seeing a couple characters and doing to first 4 missions, I came here to edit and I've noticed some problems. I'd just like to tell you that I don't like the infobox/character template for revolver characters. I think most of the sections on it are unneeded. Now that I have the game, I'll be going through the character pages like a mad-man, and I'd like to re-do the character template. I think it should look more like the Redemption character template, but with these points:

  • Name
  • Image
  • Gender
  • Affiliations
  • Family
  • Location
  • Status (This was the subject of debate in the Redemption template, so tell me if you think it's okay to add this)
  • Weapon
  • Voice Actor

That's pretty much what I'd like to see on the template. Also, most of the Revolver missions look like rubbish. They're messy and un-organised. I'll be going through those as well and I noticed that there's not really an infobox for missions in Revolver. Maybe you could edit the current infobox and create one more specific to Revolver? Last but not least, I'd like to abolish the "Walkthrough" for Revolver. It's just difficult to find the missions. In Redemption, let's take the mission "Spare the Rod, Spoil the Bandit" for example, you just need to type in "Spare the Rod, Spoil the Bandit" whereas for revolver you need to type in "Red Dead Revolver Walkthrough/Chapter 1:Bulls Eye". Do you know what I mean?

Now, I know I've pretty much just said I want to re-design almost every page for Revolver, but I think it should be done to clean it all up. Thanks.

Bert Venter Edit

Hello, Anon.

An unregistered contributor created this page today: Does Anyone have a picture of Bert Venter?.

First off, I didn't even know there was a Bert Venter. However, I'm not willing to create his page until I find him for myself or someone gives me good evidence (like a picture)

Second, I don't know what to do to this page. I thought about renaming it so it said "Forum:" in front, but then I had second thoughts... So could you work your magic? :)

Sláinte mhaith! - Hobbes (Talk) 00:44, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

There is indeed a Bert Venter.
I believe he is mentioned in the Blackwater Ledger. I have as of yet not bothered to make a page for him because I don't have any kind of identifiers for him at all. I don't even have a clue what he looks like or if he's an NPC wandering around in the game.
Cheers!

Re-categorization Edit

I've been working on cleaning up some of the categorization involving characters. I moved the Characters category under Features rather than Terminology and worked on some of the subcategories.

In doing so, I noted that Redemption characters (lowercase "c") should be changed to uppercase "C" to match the other Redemption Something categories. I may just go ahead and test this, but since there are so many pages in that category I wanted to check first ... would all of the pages tagged with that category be automatically updated to the new case or would that be a manual effort?

(P.S. I just finished L.A. Noire so now I can hop on that wiki with less fear of spoilers, so you may see me more there soon.)

User/characterbox Template is Malfunctioning Edit

All of the infobox templates (including Strangers) are all out of whack and every character has been affected.

When I look at the history of the template, you were the last editor back on April 21, 2011, so I am completely stumped as to how it is malfunctioning universally.

Is the wiki code not being interpreted properly? Does this have something to do with that new editing suite they added to the wiki?

HELP! :D

- JackFrost23 15:19, June 24, 2011 (UTC)

It has be something with Wikia because no matter how far back in the history you go, the template does not display properly.
But then, the ones over at L.A. Noire look fine, so I'm stumped again.
I've left a message with Wikia about it, but they have just not been responding lately. :(

Categorization review tool Edit

First of all, thanks for helping out with the featured article templates - I still have a few things to learn about template markup.

If you haven't tried the Wikia Game Guides app, you might want to check it out - the Red Dead and L.A. Noire wikis are both included (and probably others you're involved with). I just wrote a blog post about it. I think you might be interested because a hidden benefit is that it helps to point out categorization issues. For example, in the Weapons section of the Red Dead portion of the app tons of weapon images were showing up vs. weapon pages because they were all added to the same category.

Scorpion Revolver(s)Edit

Hey Anon, can you delete the page Scorpion Revolvers, because there is already the page Scorpion Revolver. -- Ilan xd 06:00, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Done :) --Anon(Talk) 19:01, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Revolver walkthrough Edit

First, to echo Jack's comment, "Good to have you back!" (though of course you've been working your magic in the background all along).

Regarding Revolver, in case no one told you yet, I wanted to let you know that Hobbes and LyHungViet were both working on redoing the Revolver walkthroughs away from this initial set: Red Dead Revolver Walkthrough and towards the new format as on these pages: Category:Revolver Missions. I'm not sure what their plans were for merging/deleting the old pages but I wanted to make sure you knew the current direction of those pages to avoid duplication of effort.

Admins pageEdit

Hi Anon,

I was thinkin' to do something like that (made by me) on the admins page here.

Other Examples

What do you think? -- Ilan xd 17:40, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

Just a Couple o' ThingsEdit

Hey, Annon, sorry to bug you, but I was hoping you could help.

Recently, a user has mentioned that on my profile page, I can change the text that designates me as "Admin" to "Bureaucrat". Any idea how that's done?

And I think I've asked you this before, but I'm not sure: on this page (the Spanish version of the wiki) http://es.reddead.wikia.com/wiki/John_Marston they have these neat woodgrain backgrounds for their infoboxes - how do I make ours do that? I've attempted several trial and errors, but I'm still stumped...

Oh, and is there any way we can add Chinese Rocks as a font style that the wiki can use?

Thanks in advance for your time. :)

Cheers!

Thanks so much for your help Annon, I don't know what I'd do without you.
Now having said that, I managed to get the code correctly placed to get "Bureaucrat" to display on my page, but I am completely stumped still by the background image thing for the templates.
I've looked at the code at the Spanish wiki and what you added to our site here, but I still can't figure out what I need to put in to get the templates to show those background images.
Also, can I make my own bg-images, or at least add a few new colors to these existing ones?
If I can add new images is it simply adding more lines to the code you added (basically copying the format of the code you added) or is it more complicated than that.
I'm really pissed at myself for not being able to unravel this... >:(
And on the Chinese Rocks font, I was only intending it's use for page titles in the infoboxes and such, not the readable text for the whole wiki - that'd be obnoxious! :D
Anyway, as usual, you rock, and I look forward to your response.
Cheers!

Well, alright!
I managed to get the woodgrain backgrounds to work and even added a few of my own and, honestly, it looks aces. Be sure to browse the site to see how it looks now.
And I managed to suss out how to change the word "Admin" to "Administrator" for all the admins, but one page is being totally stubborn - Contributions. For some reason that page is just not seeing the code (and I'm talking about the code you gave me in the first place). By comparison with the other lines of code for the other pages, it looks like it should be working, but it just isn't.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance, you really helped me improve the site with that background thing. :)
Cheers!

Hi I joined this wiki three years ago, thats when I created a posse called the Western Legends. And then I leave the wiki for three years and then I decide to check on it on the 9.13.2013. But the posse I created was gone for some reason. Why can't I find my posse name in the list of posses?

Wikia Maps / Stranger Mission LocationsEdit

Hey there Annonnimus! My name is Doug from Wikia's Community Development Team. I'm stopping by to let you know that we recently released this awesome interactive maps feature which can be found at Special:Maps. As a way to practice, I created an interactive map for Stranger Missions which can be found here. I believe this new feature really lends itself well to open-world games (and Rockstar Games in particular). You can embed these maps on article pages and I'd love to embed this one I've created on either the Strangers page, or on the Category:Stranger Missions page (you can take a look on how it looks on the Dark Souls wiki where we have done something similar).

I hope you guys give the new feature a try and find useful wells to lend it to your wiki. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions! Have a good one : D The Maps Help documentation can be found hereTheBlueRogue @Wikia •(profile)•(talk)•(doug@wikia-inc.com) 21:17, July 25, 2014 (UTC)
