  • Formatting question:

    When listing stuff in infoboxes, should we simply seperate them with <br> tags as demonstrated in the following example?

    Mrs. Benson (mother)<br>Mr. Benson (father)<br>Josh Benson (brother)<br>Petey (pet)

  • This user has been making a pattern going around to various wikis looking to merely socialize and talk about all things in general. He or she has to understand that they need to stay on topic with the wiki he or she is currently at and not to ask so many questions. Also if he or she wants to socialize he or she should join some chatrooms or yahoo answers.

    • I don't know what he's been up to on other wikis, but I don't see a problem with the questions he asked here. The questions were fairly relevant (he was asking about a certain Goosebumps episode). He contacted me on my walk some time ago.

      Yes see - he or she asks questions, about a topic that relevant to the wiki. Then when given the answers, he or she starts to asks users about various different off topic questions. Like about movies and t.v. shows etc.

    • Oh. I haven't gone that far yet, LOL.

      EDIT: I see what you mean now, after his most recent reply.

  • Hey Bart, it's been a while, I hope you've been doing well! I just wanted to alert you to an upcoming change. As you know, Fandom is slowly migrating its wikis to the UCP platform. This move involves the deprecation of the forums in favor of Discussions as elaborated on in this blog post. Since this wiki still uses forums quite actively, this will affect this wiki as well. In the end, only the platform will change, as all threads on forum will be ported over to Discussions, where people can continue to discuss the franchise.

    This community hasn't been noted yet as being on the list to have forums be migrated to Discussions, but I just wanted to give you a heads up already. When this will happen, you will notice the appearance of a banner on the wiki that will indicate the move. At the time of the migration, the Forums will be put into a read-only state as the content is migrated automatically. Discussions will be open during and after the migration.

    After the migration, you and the other admins may want to check the Discussion boards out to properly set up a categorization structure. If you have any questions in regards to this or need any help setting things up, please let me know. I'll be happy to supply or find an answer for you!

    • Based on what I've read, the depressing answer is yes, the feature has been removed. Totally agree about how it looks. What sucks even more is the flippin' loading time. Pages on this wiki load in milliseconds. Pages on any UCP wikis take 20X the time, maybe even 200X the time. Trying to load the homepage is like drowning in jello.

    • As noted by Mikel, the recent wiki activity feature is currently not being ported to UCP. They're looking at ways to incorporate the use cases of the feature into the platform, but the feature as-is will not be ported.

      There have been multiple reports about the loading time being longer. I will relay this back to Fandom again, so it's emphasised again how much of an issue this is. If you have any other feedback to share, I'd love to hear it!

  • With the 14th SW book's title being revealed, it's probably safe to assume that we're not getting any more books from that series (Scholastic confirms only 14 books for the SW series)... and now the SW template looks odd and asymmetric. Think we should figure out a new way to display the books or am I being too picky?

    Also, thoughts on the title/plot summary? I don't hate it but idk I guess it just seems like we're about to have one more standard zombie story in the GB franchise. Boo, dude.

    • >It feels weird that for a series called SlappyWorld we're ending on a book that doesn't actually feature Slappy outside of the wraparounds.

      To be honest I haven't even thought about that but you're absolutely right.

      >where exactly did you read that the series is over?

      Somewhere in the Scholastic website, it said the SW series would feature 14 books. As Retro mentioned, maybe that plan changed but we can only wait to find out. Or maybe we can ask Stine, idk.

      >I wouldn't really mind if Stine starts a new series.

      I have no idea what Stine has in store but I'm tired of the SW books. I need something new haha

    • Either way, we'll likely have our answer sometime after My Friend Slappy releases.

  • Hi. I noticed that the category for HorrorTown characters has "HorrorTown" misspelled as "Horrortown." You mentioned stuff about leaving mass edits to do with categories to bots. Would a bot fix work in this case? Now, don't try to convince me that it doesn't make a difference.

  • Hello, my name's Mountain4567. I've taken an interest in your page tabbers that you use to seperate information on books, characters, on the same page. I was wondering if you created those tabbers.  I really like the styling that you used and I was thinking about using it for another wiki that I'm an admin of. But the coding seems complicated.

  • This is the last message you'll ever receive from me on this wiki:

    Ever since I started on Fandom, you have been a great admin, a mentor, 24 hourish support, a humorous guy, and a great artist! You have taught me all about formatting and editing - even though you probably haven't noticed. I would like to say this: Stay arty and stay safe! To show you how grateful I am to have had you as an admin, I drew ANOTHER avatar thingy (your style):

    File:5.Bim.png
    Farewell, GbA!

    P.S. I don't really care about what you want to do with this. Maybe stare at it and let it scar you for life.

    • Ok. Thanks. I forgot about this thread.

      There's something strange about my user page. I added this cover review generator thing, but The Curse of Camp Cold Lake keeps showing up when 'Generate' is clicked. I don't think there's anything wrong with the code. Is it like that on your end too?

  • Hey GbA! I just wanted to drop by and introduce myself. I am Lostris, and I'll be taking over from Mandy as this wiki's Wiki Manager. As she told you before, we're here to assist you and this community on a more local level, so if you have any questions for staff or need any help, just drop me a message, and I'll be happy to help out. Aside from assisting this community with any possible issues, I am also here to help you out with the fun stuff, so if you have an idea or fun project that you don't quite know how to get off the ground or that you feel could use a little bit more Fandom love, do not hesitate to reach out and pitch me your idea! I will also be getting in contact with the other admins in this community to introduce myself and inform them of this change. I look forward to getting to know you and work together with you and this community!

    • Sup, Lo. Sorry for the late response. (I guess I've taken more of a backseat role on this wiki, lately.) It's nice that you took the time to find our nicknames.

    • Lo, huh? That's a new one :-D generally people abbreviate my username to just Lostris or LL. Maybe even Tris on occasion. You get a brownie point for originality!

      Don't worry about the late response, I'm just glad to hear back from you. I can see why you've taken a back seat on this wiki, it's a very solid project! Cool design as well!
