Revision as of 14:00, 30 September 2019

The Admin noticeboard is one way through which users can notify Administrators of issues needing administrative attention. While users are welcome to directly contact specific administrators (especially if they are seen to be active), posting here can be an easier and quicker way of ensuring that at least one admin will notice an issue and respond to it promptly. Remember to sign (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here. Deletion requests should be made by adding {{delete|reason for deletion request}} to the top of the target page, which will then automatically mark the page as a candidate for deletion.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comment instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made once a resolution could not be reached between users.
  • For issues regarding the use of this wiki, please see our help center.

In case of vandalism, posting about it here is low priority. Revert it first, anyone can do so. If the vandal created a new page, tag it for deletion. Assume good faith and consider leaving a message on that user's talk page to explain the reason. Post here only if the user has made several disruptive edits and/or persists despite a warning. Always avoid a revert war with the vandal; it is far better to wait until an admin has a chance to intervene. If a user must be reported here, please use {{user}}, preferably as the topic subject/headline.

Also, readers or editors wanting to help the Wiki can go to Editors ToDo for a list of tasks.

Current Issues

Template:Infobox_game

This template has been used on numerous pages for a purpose it wasn't intended for, because there was no documentation about it. It seems the template was initially for describing the game.

Could Equazcion have a look at this? We need to rename or duplicate the Template (if possible) and document it. --BowiQC (talk) 01:43, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Done made Template:Infobox item and Template:Infobox animal with documentations. -- Nartu 17:26, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

More Guardians or Admins?

Who else think we should have more admins here?

More importantly: who's interested?

Numerous duplicates on Fandom/Wikia and Gamepedia

Second phase

If you want more context, please click here to read "First phase"
A direct message has been sent this Thursday to active editors, on both Fandom's and Gamepedia's Wikis, asking them to give their opinion. You can find the message on their User Talk page. People have until October 3rd to answer. This means we'll have the possibility to make a decision after that. I really hope we'll be able to merge those two wikis together. (Hopefully this one on Gamepedia will be one to stay! 😅) --BowiQC (talk) 20:42, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

First phase (DONE)

Hello to you, reader.

Considering there are five Fandom/Wikia about “Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey” and one wiki on Gamepedia, which is itself part of the “Fandom/Wikia family” since December 2018, I really think we need to think about merging all the wikis into a single one and work together.

Even though English isn't my first language, I'll do everything I can to bring together all the editors who want to work on a wiki for “Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey”, whether it’s:

As for myself, I did some work on the Gamepedia's wiki with nice users like TheBrezzl.

If you want to talk about this, we could start on Discord (which I'm only starting to use...) My username is Bowi#1176 and I joined the official "Fandom/Gamepedia" server here: https://discord.gg/fandom

Together, let's find the best place to edit and we'll work with Staff Members / Power Users so we can delete duplicates once and for all. --BowiQC (talk) 02:44, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Update: We are currently merging "https://ancestorsthehumankindodyssey.fandom.com/" into "https://ancestors-the-humankind-odyssey.fandom.com". --BowiQC (talk) 01:13, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Done. I think I'll focus on Gamepedia until we decide what to do about the duplicates.--BowiQC (talk) 16:16, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

Add categories!

Please try to categorise everything! e.g. Uncategorised images and while we are at it, please add {{Copyright game}} to every game related image. Thank you! Encredechine (talk) 09:04, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Thanks for everything! I'll read a bit about categorization, because I have no idea about it. --BowiQC (talk) 10:47, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Done with this batch, for now. Feel free to pass on feedback if the categorisation is not up to standard. Question : can you filter out pictures without copyright cat ?
Thank you. Well, you definitely can do it for files with the template. You could run a bot and add the copyright template to every file - the bot can skip the action, if the template is already there. Encredechine (talk) 08:35, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
Not my line of work, sry. But if I notice files marked as uncategorized or without legal notice I will be happy to to the legwork. Lordflinx (talk) 10:07, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Also : What about CC like CC BY-SA 4.0 ( found on wikipedia, See Turkana Boy ? LordFlinx 09:15, 11 September 2019 (UTC) Lordflinx (talk)
    • Version 4.0 of the Creative Commons might be interesting. We might have to check what's new versus 3.0... Pictures without copyright are a problem, yes. We'll have to find how to modify the disclaimer. --BowiQC (talk) 14:31, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
      • So you want to upload the image here? (Just so I do understand correctly). In doubt - ask the author or just link to the external page. I'll ask because of CC 4.0 and what can be done! Encredechine (talk) 08:35, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
        • My superior told me you can, of course, create an additional template for CC 4.0. Still no harm in reaching out to the author and to explaining what you'll use the image for. Encredechine (talk) 13:42, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
          • Same here as with the categorisation. Im happy to bring possible issues to your notice or mop up the ToDo, but I have no experience with the bot setup or scripting, and would hesitate to reach out to other sites/authors. Lordflinx (talk) 10:07, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

Fixed issues

Something is wrong with the CCS code on mobile

Whether it's on Firefox or Chrome, the visuals are awful. Best example being the headings which use the same color of the background.--BowiQC (talk) 00:57, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Hm... I think it has been fixed... somehow... 👌--BowiQC (talk) 15:51, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
I've just added a better css for the mobile site. It's not styled and very basic at the moment. Encredechine (talk) 08:49, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

Please Add a "Animals" Section to the Main Page

I would like to cover Animals extra on a separate topics section like Items and Locations

Done! Encredechine (talk) 08:49, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

FAQ and/or To-Do section ?

I have 2 suggestions to brainstorm with you :

  1. FAQ section on Main Page? Could be a nice idea to use that to gather new ideas and questions and to answer those questions not covered in other topics
  2. To-Do : A Sub- Category of the Admin Noticeboard to list up all those chores or tasks … I have time to kill and it would prevent clogging up the discussion sub- categories here.

Greets ! Lordflinx (talk) 12:47, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

I want to make sure I understand your suggestions. Would the FAQ section be a separate page? Would it be mostly about gameplay elements or only about gameplay? Either way, I think this would be a nice idea to bring readers and editors together.
As for the “To-do” section, that would also be a good addition… We could put it in the Community portal or here, on the Admin noticeboard, and I could also create archive pages of the Admin noticeboard to make it cleaner… Let me know how you see this and I could add links on the Main Page. Don’t hesitate to create the pages yourself if you want. It’s hard to break something completely here. 😋 --BowiQC (talk) 19:33, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
  • I would suggest adding the FAQ as a new page and linking it to Main Page. And would not define it too closely : If we have / get questions about the game, we can always use the suggestion to create or edit a wiki entry. And evering else that is related enough not to be deleted would have its place in the FAQ without having to move it.
  • The ToDo list could be linked to both the Admin noticeboard and the community page. We dont need to add every little task, but adding info about needed tasks in an easy to find was could be useful. The next batch of uncategorized pages / pics ect. I will spin something up
    • - done. Editors ToDo and FAQ created Lordflinx (talk) 08:09, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

I would like to start a French version

Hello! I would like to work on a French version. I already documented a lot of stuff myself and I would like to share and cooperate. I don't really know how this works, but I'm willing to slowly and "dilettantely" learn. 😅 BowiQC (talk) 18:02, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Added a page for Different language Discussion and list of contributers. TheBrezzl (talk) 10:51, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Funny. I start getting more and more "random pages" in French. Is there a way to link the random search to a specific language without splitting into 2 different wikis ? Lordflinx (talk) 13:13, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
I'll see whether it's possible. --BowiQC (talk) 20:37, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
