Hi there, I'm the new Wiki Manager for the Criminal Case Wiki, taking over from User:Thatawesomecat. I hope everything is running smoothly, but feel free to ask me questions if you have any. My areas of expertise are listed on my profile, along with some examples of things I've done. You can reach me by leaving a message on my wall, on Discord at Moviesign#6611, or by email at Moviesign at fandom.com. —Moviesign (talk) 22:24, June 25, 2020 (UTC)
Hi Reg, you obviously don't know me, I'm one of the newest members of this wiki. Since joining it, I have dedicated myself to creating a Criminal Case wiki in Portuguese version. Luckily I found an abandoned and vandalized wiki and started making some edits on it, and the former administrator passed me the wiki and gave me the rights to be the page's administrator and bureaucrat, and I have taken over to this day. Since then, a user named Ketric has been helping me expand it, and I've given her the rights to be a administrator and bureaucrat just like me. I recently found out that wikia founder AtMisaelChannel unfortunately died of a food poisoning in 2017. So I feel that my responsibility is to continue what he created, in his memory. The reason I wrote this message is to ask you what steps I should take to make my wiki the official Portuguese version. Here below is the page link. If there are any issues to discuss, please feel free to answer me. I'm a big fan of this game since I started playing it, and I think it's unfair that this game doesn't have a page dedicated to it in Portuguese, so I'm here to live up to it.
Hi again, I have another problem. This has happened to me for months. I got blocked and banned from CC Discord. I knew I was pretty naughty in the past. I need your help. Now, my old self has been changed to my good one. I promise I won't be the naughty user. Can you or anyone unblock me on CC Discord ? That will be grateful for me.
Greetings, I realized that I was a little rude throughout the wiki, and I also joined when I was underage, and I am sorry. Also, sorry for what I have done offensive here. I hope you will accept my apology.
Hi! I'm Luqgreg, a member of the Vanguard team. We're users who volunteer to help communities adopt to new technologies and features, like content portability. We've identified Criminal Case Wiki as a high priority for introducing the Portable Infobox tool, which has a lot of benefits for your community. I'd like to work to update the Infobox templates so that they can be accessible on any current and future platform. As you can see here, differences between them are very minor. Maintaining them if you want to make changes should be very simple.
We'd really like to get working on your community, but we would appreciate your go-ahead. Also, if you have any questions, or this is the wrong place for this kind of a discussion, please let me know. Thanks!
Hi! I've done drafts for all of your infoboxes and you can see comparison of old and new ones here. There are two major changes related to infobox behaviour (and I think these are positive) if you agree on having those new infoboxes on your wiki:
- Portable Infoboxes don't support tabview to display image collections. Instead you can use <gallery> tag and in this way you don't have to put images in separate template pages, so this:
I can replace that in all articles with my bot, I'll just need your approval to get a bot flag, so those multiple changes will be hidden in Special:RecentChanges by default. Otherwise, image collections won't work at all.
- Number of your infoboxes will be reduced from 54 to just 5! You won't have to copy-paste same change to 50 other boxes, just because you wanted to change text color. All themes will be handled by MediaWiki:Themes.css - same values will be used for Template:CharacInfobox/SOMMember and Template:OrganizationInfobox/SOMBRA. Even though all subtemplates for themes will redirect to the main template with assigned theme, I recommend changing this:
|theme = SOMBRA
I can also make this change in every article with my bot, if you agree.
If you have any issues or concerns about those infoboxes, let me know. Otherwise you can approve these drafts, by clicking "Approve this draft" button on each draft page, just keep in mind that after approving image collection won't work without changing tabviews to galleries.
Great! The bot was flagged and I'll make those changes as soon as I can. Sadly, I won't be able to do that until tommorow morning in my time zone - that's 8 hours from now. II'll let you know, when it's done.
