Wikia

    It's been nearly nine months since the last time I wrote a community blog. But in light of the amount of technical updates that have taken place since that time, I felt that it would be impractical not to make a blog to address these updates, how they serve as an improvement to this wiki, how they serve as an issue, and what I have suggested we do about them.

    Wikia has updated the design for the forum activity, chat, blog post, and recent wiki activity modules. This wasn't a problem since it was just a matter of updating the CSS to override those undesirable changes. These modules can still be customised without violating Wikia's TOU, so yeah, those changes were almost completely reverted with CSS.

    Now less than two days ago, Wikia updated t…

    It's been a little while since I wrote a community blog, but here it is. The latest technical update blog. Two major changes that I believe need announcing. The former of the two has been around for a few days, while the latter of the two just took effect last night (my last night).

    Recently, I asked Wikia Staff to enable the new discussions feature, so that myself and others can get the feel of using them. This is important, given that this feature will eventually be replacing the new forums not only on this wiki, but on all wikis that use the new forums instead of the old forums.

    As with all wikis, at C.Syde's Wiki here, we unfortunately have no control over this transition from new forums to discussions. So in the mean time, it's best tha…

    It's been a long time since I wrote a community blog, but here it is. The latest technical update blog. Well it's not just a technical update blog. It's mostly an announcement blog. We have had two changes to C.Syde's Wiki in the last couple of days that I'd like to announce. The first change is that I have expanded the width of the forum boards.

    I have made the forum boards wider so that they fill up more space, so now instead of seeing blank pink space, we'll be seeing the forum boards instead. It always bugged me how the new forum boards and threads were always narrower than the old forums. Since the old forums used pages instead of threads, I have yet to see if it's possible to make the forum threads the same width as the old forum page…

    This update has been on my wiki for a couple of days now, but it's time for me to announce this technical update that has been made to this wiki a few days ago. For quite some time, I have wanted to allow users to have the option to use talk pages inside the article namespace, instead of using the article comments feature.

    This will be a huge benefit in some ways, since a few of the pages that I created that existed before I decided to enable article comments indefinitely, are not accustomed to having users use article comments on those pages, since they are well designed for talk page use. In-fact I don't even see it as being possible to have article comments replace talk pages for those particular pages, not without detrimental results. S…

    It is time for me to announce a technical update that has been made to this wiki earlier today (or yesterday in UTC time) regarding the Assistant User Group that was introduced to this wiki last year.

    Yesterday, I sent a request to Wikia Staff requesting that I could have the following abilities added to the Assistant User Group. To my best of luck, they accepted my request without question.


    The following abilities have been included with the Assistant User Group since the beginning]]) 02

    It is time for me to announce a couple of changes that I have recently made to this wiki, and to announce another future change that I am currently contemplating.

    For the first change that has just been made

    Due to the low number of users with user rights in addition to the ones extended to regular users, I have merged the pages concerning Administrators and Moderators together. The page that lists the current administrators and moderators can be found here.

    For the second change that has just been made

    For one year, and two months, Chat Moderators and Discussion Moderators were allowed to issue warnings to users. However as of the 6th April 2016, today I have decided to withdraw this allowance, and restrict use of the warning template, to tho…

    What's been happening to my - or should I say, "our" since this wiki can be edited by basically anyone who chooses to edit here - wiki, in the last couple of months?

    I'm glad you have asked me this. Well, you will remember that some features, such as the editing screen on my wiki were pink. But now they are white. How did that happen I ask?

    The answer lies here, in , and Special:ThemeDesigner.

    For the latter, I changed the default colour of the background from dusty pink #eccacc to white. If you look at the MediaWiki:Wikia.css page revisions that I've made since early February of this year, you'll find that I changed the background colour back using some CSS.

    These changes that I made to the wiki's CSS and Theme Design were made so that this wiki…
