  • 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.

    • Also about characters:

      Which "List of appearances" section should be universally used on all character pages? I've seen the table, and I've seen the list, and I've seen several pages with nothing.

      The easiest way that I can currently do it will probably flood the recent activity feed...

      >Which "List of appearances" section should be universally used on all character pages? I've seen the table, and I've seen the list, and I've seen several pages with nothing.

      If the character has appeared in more than one original story (...a direct adaptation doesn't count), they get a table. (Assuming they qualify for a table, adaptations should be included.)

      The reason the table isn't more widespread is because everybody is too lazy to make them and because we can't quite decide which variant of the table to go with. The variant that looks the best doesn't distinguish the medium. I suppose the version on Slappy's page is the "best" in terms of information, but it's big and the sizing of each table is different but only in certain web browsers and OH NOOOOO ITS UGLLLYLYLYLYLYLY

      I don't really like that table cuz I haven't read all the books, nor have I played all the games. The table has a "Role" section. When I was editing character pages a few hours ago, there were several characters who had tables and game appearances, but I didn't know their role in the game, so I couldn't fix that.

    • That's a pretty lame reason for ditching a feature.

        Loading editor
    • That wasn't really the reason. The REAL reason is that it makes it more complex than it should be. My favorite layout is that list thingy, but it needs some work.



      Also, Goosebumps: The Game/Characters has a books tab. I think we gotta make some new templates for the games.

      It's a variable, my guy. The original template has a variable, so you can swap out the word "story" by typing: {{CharacterSpoiler|game}}

      Honestly, I could probably fix that with a variable. Something I shoulda implemented sooner, probably.

    • More on bot fixes...

      Is there any way you could use a bot to add periods at the end of every caption on this Wiki? Or any other way possible to do this instead of mass editing and flooding the feed?

      Side question: Do you get a notification every time I reply to a thread you follow?

    • >Side question: Do you get a notification every time I reply to a thread you follow?

      I don't get a phone or email notification. I get a little bubble in the top right whenever I'm logged into Fandom.

      >Is there any way you could use a bot to add periods at the end of every caption on this Wiki?

      I... Don't think I'd know how to do that with the bot.

    • This is an admin matter. There's this user called Nicholas-fairall19 who keeps adding low quality images to articles, deleting and readding images, and doing some weird stuff I don't really understand (all realated to images). I think you should warn him about adding low-quality images. I already rolled-back all the edits.

      I know the wiki updated to UCP (a Fandom thing). That messed up some formatting, but the wiki is still functioning for me.

    • Odd. Now it works fine, except for those gray boxes. When I went there a while ago, the whole page was replaced with a pattern of infinite Dreyfus(es?), and it had some subheadings in red (all stacked and squashed to the left side of the screen). Problem solved, I guess.

      To summarize, Mikel experienced a temporary glitch. That issue is resolved.

      >I am aware there are a series of issues at the time being because it has been updated with the new fandom's software.

      Some of the issues can be explained here. Quite a lot of reading, though.

      https://goosebumps.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:42722

      Most notably, the gray boxes can be fixed by removing "class="wikitable";" from templates/pages. (There was a temporary issue with fonts that's already fixed.)

      My joke about the AYAotD Wiki not existing was just a joke.
