  • The illustrations on your userpage... Do you draw those yourself? They're quite nice.

    Oh, but I did have a more pressing question. First, some background. A few months back, Fandom introduced an infobox-tabber feature. Certain pages, like Welcome to Dead House, utilize it. However, the feature seems to have a weakness. If the tab-titles are too long — or if there are too many tabs — some of the titles will be cropped out.

    Convoluted descriptions aside, I made an example. The tabs titled "1992............", "2003............", and "2008............" are all visible, but the "2010........." tab is cropped out. (From what I can tell, the only way to view a cropped-out tab is to click on one of the visible tabs and then use the arrow keys to scroll back and forth... Which most users would never think to do.)

    Rather than cropping out the overflow, is there any way of forcing excess tabs onto a new line? I imagine it should be possible in CSS (which would be nicer than JS), but I can't figure out how to get such a feature working. (Sorry for making such a big wall of text.)

  • I have a question, and I'm hoping you can help.

    One of the page protection options is "Block new and unregistered users". I understand that an unregistered user is someone without an account, but what counts as a "new" user? (Is it based on days active? Edit count? Something else?)

    (From personal experience, it seems like 90% of vandalism comes from accounts that are only a few days old, so I was thinking about semi-protecting some of this wiki's most popular pages. I just want to know the extent of this protection.)

  • Does every wiki have a wiki manager? Cuz I started a wiki yesterday and I need help but I don't have a manager.

    • No, every wiki does not have a manager. We are slowly expanding our reach but it's impossible to help every single community out there. If you would like to be assigned a wiki manager, you can request one using Special:Contact. Is this wiki a TV/Movies community?

    • Yeah, it's a TV wiki

    • Great! so then you'll qualify to have a TV/Movies Wiki Manager help you out.

  • Hey! I was wondering if you can help direct me where to go with an issue I'm having. I noticed when I try to link sites that are away from Fandom in blog posts or comments, this wiki automatically inserts an s after http in the hyperlink.

    My blog, for example, http://nevermore.nu will not work with the s in the url. It doesn't mean my site isn't secure. I just don't intend to pay the $40 a year my host wants to charge just to add the s to my url for Chrome. I often link pages from my blog to reference when I'm discussing Goosebumps books with fans here because I review the books there. There are other sites that don't have an s in the url as well.

    This hasn't always been a problem. It's something I just noticed recently. Do you know if it's an issue just at this Wiki, or all across Fandom, and is there a way to fix it? I don't know where to go or who to contact about this issue. I figured you could point me in the right direction. Thanks for your time!

    • Just got word back from the technical team at Fandom - apparently the https link change should not be happening. They are currently reviewing the issue and working on a solution asap. Thank you for bringing this to their attention, and I will get back to you as soon as I have an update.

    • I thought it was weird.

      I understand the need for https for sites that collect info or are edited by many people, but I'm just running a personal blog, so it's not worth the added expense for me. 

      I'm willing to use the 3rd party URL until it's fixed. Thanks, Mandy!

  • There's a vandal called "Freeeze007" and he/she's been removing all info from several pages, when he/she first started, I reversed the vandalism, but it's gone too far now. I contacted GbA on Gmail and the wiki page and he isn't responding, and I'm afraid he/she might ruin this entire wiki!

    • All vandalism should be reported to the VSTF and they will handle it asap. The vandal has been blocked, although it seems that you and the vandal share the same IP address..
