Welcome to my Wall!
Before leaving me a message:
  • PLEASE look through the FAQs on my profile page. You'll be doing me a HUGE favor by saving me the time in answering the same questions over and over again.
  • A bit silly to list this, but sadly, I must: Do not ask me about things that I couldn't possibly know. Again, from my FAQ: I do not work for DreamWorks, nor am I an expert in all topics related to movies, or television, or animation, etc. So please refrain from asking me things like when something will be released, or why something is taking so long to release. I'll typically answer these with, "I don't know, sorry," because I really don't know what else to say.
  • Please do your research before asking me. I get a lot of questions that require me to do something that you could easily do yourself - e.g. asking me for the translation and meaning of a piece of foreign text, or asking me for updates on a particular piece of media, etc. Please be polite and do the research yourself first before asking me about it.
  • Please do not ask me to look at/visit/read/view/etc. something of yours. I'm quite a busy person and unfortunately do not have the time to look at everyone's stuff.

  • I noticed you changed Po's height from "6'2" to "6' 2", is there a space after the apostrophe? Just to correct myself in the future, I never add one.

  • Do you still need assistance with the interactive slider or are you able to live with the "lazy loading"? I noticed you mentioning to someone else, recently who requested assistance from me, that you were looking for the docs.

    • I'm good for the most part - I think I just need a refresher on portal IDs. If I don't get around to making a new slider, then I'll eventually need to add new slides. Don't want to break the slider by mixing up the portal IDs.

    • so basically how it works is each id is just a number that links the slider together. if you didn't change the workaround (15), then that allows for external links.

      if you want an image to point backwards to a previous template, you can use existing numbers.

      if you want an image to go forward to a new template, just increment the numbers in css. always just keep adding new numbers to the end, don't reuse unless you want to link to existing templates. 

      since you wanted to repeat templates, that could result in mixing up the ids.

    • Got it, thanks. I'll let you know if I need any more help or clarifications.

  • Greetings!

    I hope I'm not disturbing you at this moment, but may I please know how do I make something like what you did in the Contents section of the main page? Or at least just tell me the name/term for the thing I can look it up myself.

    Thanks ^^

      I wouldn't exactly call it "broken", per se. Technically everything still mostly "works", but like Nerf mentioned, the loading function has been tampered with, resulting in the slide's image content not loading on-click anymore. I'm pretty sure this is a form of "lazy-loading" - definitely something Wikia has been implementing to its site features a lot lately.

      huh so that's what Wikia actually did, that misled me into thinking the slider was broken. Well, seems to be rendered close to useless anyways. Having to wait on it to load on click defeats the purpose.

      If you need help with the slider, I can still try to assist. I'll send you another email, rather not explain on this network.

  • Hi Spottedstar; I'm Amanda with FANDOM's community development team! I wanted to see if you were interested in turning on Discussions.

    In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly, and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. You can read more about Discussions here.

    For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.

    If you have some concerns, Discussions and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.

    Let me know what you think, and if you want to proceed I can get the ball rolling.

    • Hi Amanda,

      I've been pondering about Discussions for a while already, seeing that it's used on the mobile apps. I also know (from this blog) about the push to get wiki communities compatible for the new version of the apps, which IIRC requires Discussions enabled. I guess I don't have much of a choice in that sense, but the feature does look pretty slick and functional, and I definitely like having mobile functionality. So I'm supportive in that aspect.

      I actually wasn't aware that the Forums content could be migrated into discussion posts. I was hesitant on getting Discussions enabled because it took a lot of time and work to move all of our user blog content into the forums. But if the migrating will do most of that work, then I'm all for it.

      Let me know if there's anything on my part I can/need to do to help with the migration.

    • Awesome! I'm so glad that you are open to enabling discussions. Don't worry about the migration. We'll handle that on our end.

  • Hello, can we do a afillating from the ducktales wiki?

  • Why aren't you doing anything special here for the tenth anniversary? You did it for the fifth anniversary, so why not the tenth?

      Loading editor...
    • I decorated, didn't I? :P

      I'm unfortunately too busy and unmotivated. Organizing the 5-year anniversary was a lot of work, especially because I did everything myself. I'd really like to just follow the fandom this year than lead it.

      I might do some last-minute stuff though, we'll see. Won't be anything too special, but I really can't do more.

        Loading editor...
    • How hard could organizing a ten-year-anniversary be? I could help.

        Loading editor...
    • Thanks for the offer, but it's too late now. We no longer have the time necessary to plan and prep.

      Asking how "hard" it is really an understatement. I'm not sure how else to describe detailed, thoughtful content/event planning while under time, quality, and creativity pressure. It sounds like you've never had to do something like that. Plus, because the one I did for 5th anniversary was so large-scale, I really can't think of any ways to top it.

      I think the decorations are enough - they'll be around until I make a new background for the new Amazon series.

  • I was wondering if you could help me out on this matter. I would like to add four images under "Gallery" > "Images" that have those captions that slide up when you hover over them with the cursor. I can't seem to get them to fit or stay in the same size in order to look organized.

    • Love the anniversary theme, 10/10!

        Loading editor...
    • Thanks. :) It'll probably be sticking around until images from the new Amazon series come out. I'm pretty excited to make a background themed around it.
