Hey Dantman

I've seen you in some of the recent blogs about Wikia's new look, so could you give me your take on this? I'm asking since the latest Staff blog just gave a timeline of November before its implemented Wikia wide112.135.111.142 (talk) 21:33, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, and your archive list goes: 1, 10, 2,3.... (talk) 21:35, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

Hello! I am an admin at the Kingdom Hearts wiki's, and our community has pretty much decided that the new skin is intolerable. For example, several of our pages used information-rich tables, and the new skin makes them completely illegible; wikia's response seems to be, "Well, you can still just about read it." We are waiting to see whether wikia will realize that the new skin is a bad decision, but in the meantime, we'd still like to be preparing if we have to move to a new host. I saw your input in the forum, and you seem like the best person to ask for advice, and about what would be required for a move. It would be very helpful if you could join the discussion here, or if that's inconvenient, at least allow us to ask questions here.
Please respond on my talk page, since I am not able to regularly monitor outside wikis. Thanks!Why don't you try it just to see what happens? 13:02, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

If it isn't obvious...

I'm a paranoid nut. I heard Wikia allows a free database dump, and I think that is something we should have on the back burner, if the new Wikia is complete garbage.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 21:46, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Welcome

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'll try to add some good info to this Wiki. But I was wondering a bit about the policies here, because I'm used to the rules that came with Warriors Wiki. So, maybe just lay down some of the basic policies for me? Arigatou, Dantman-sama! :) ScarletwindThe Uchiha's final Hope 03:59, October 2, 2010 (UTC)

Form:Survey look

Is it suppose to be easily accessible? Because other than going through the form page, I have no idea how other users are suppose to be able to find it. SimAnt 03:02, October 11, 2010 (UTC)


Hello, I am Demon of the Mist join to help out. While I was viewing the site, I saw it had Kenjutsu. But didn't say what it was a subcategory of. Even though in the Taijutsu definition it says "Taijutsu is simply put, hand-to-hand combat, or weaponry." So I would think its common sense for people to think Kenjutsu is a branch off. But I met someone who argued its not a subcategory. So I just think it should be added there for 100% assurance.

Abuse Filter

Is there some way to prevent this edits? Different IP-numbers every time, same three first though. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 09:37, October 16, 2010 (UTC)

Sure here are some examples. [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8]. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 17:54, October 16, 2010 (UTC)

Unordered lists

Would it be within the ToU to change the css style for "ul.line-height" back to something reasonable? SimAnt 20:16, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

So would the proper change be from,
<!-- Old --> td, th, ul li, p { line-height: 1em; }
<!-- Old -->
<!-- New -->
.box td th { line-height: 1em;}
.box ul li p { line-height: 1.7em;}
<!-- New -->

Got the css from Mediawiki:Wikia.css (about the fourth "wall" of code). SimAnt 04:22, October 21, 2010 (UTC)
Heh, just trying to make it so semantic queries in the infoboxes that use the class="box ... " set the ul line-height to something reasonable, instead of like 3em. this was working how i wanted it to look. I just figured i'd try to add the other tags as well, especially the paragraph tag.

I got it looking nice on my browser with my settings... now to fix it up for other browsers. Also, that vandal is annoying me, seems like he figured out he could create accounts on different wikia and come here. (talk) 22:39, October 21, 2010 (UTC)
