Stoneshard wiki:Admin noticeboard

Jump to navigation Jump to search

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. Please post discussions on the talk page.
  • 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.

ImageMap extension


Is there a possibility to enable the ImageMap Extension on this Wiki?

I suppose it can help to create interactive skill trees (with tooltips), but not 100% sure it will work.

I found a way to make it through wiki markup/HTML so there's probably no need in the extension. --Phoe nixx (talk) 20:51, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
It's still a bit tricky tho, so having the working extension would still be better. --Phoe nixx (talk) 17:48, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

@TheSatanicSanta, could you tell me the name of the Wiki Manager for this Wiki? I'd still like to ask them about adding the extension. Phoe nixx (talk) 01:50, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

I am the wiki manager here. From your previous messages I assumed this was no longer needed. I asked about in the #wiki channel on the Stoneshard Discord and generally it seemed editors did not think it would be useful. Can you show or tell me exactly what you want to use it for? TheSatanicSanta (talk) 16:46, 6 June 2020 (UTC)
On Skill Tree pages (like Maces (skill tree)). The template that is currently used imitates how does the following MediaWiki code work: [[File:Filename.ext|thumb|Caption]] which is the case of reinventing the wheel. The ImageMap extension is able to draw a map over a normal "thumb" images without any reinventing-the-wheel code. My template also uses divs to create links while the extension uses normal HTML "map" tags. Overall the extension would provide more clean code without any hacks.

Ok, I understand. I agree using ImageMap extension makes a lot more sense and is less "hacky" than these templates. I've enabled it. TheSatanicSanta (talk) 20:23, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
I added a section to the Stoneshard_Wiki:Community_portal page describing how to use ImageMap. Unfortunately, it seems that links created using the ImageMap extension don't produce Tooltips on mouseover.

I was afraid this problem would surface. How do these tooltips work? Some JavaScript attached to the page? Phoe nixx (talk) 18:35, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
The possible cause of the issue is that the ImageMap links are made with the HTML tag <area> while regular wikilinks are rendered with the tag <a>. Phoe nixx (talk) 14:42, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Finally found out that the problem is in the TippingOver extension not attaching tooltips to ImageMap areas. I don't know yet if one could make the extension do so without modifying the extension itself. Phoe nixx (talk) 17:48, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
I submitted a ticket on the TippingOver issue tracker. TheSatanicSanta (talk) 21:26, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

It seems that bolded text in the beginning of an article breaks tooltips

Once I bolded the title word of the Attributes article (as it's the part of the style guide in multiple wikis), the tooltips stopped working on that page. Phoe nixx (talk) 23:24, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

Yeah sometimes the page needs to be purged in order for tooltips to show up. TheSatanicSanta (talk) 01:45, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
