All Transcripts on a Single Page

Hi Bobogoobo,

Do you know how the "all transcripts on a single page" page works? There's no source code to view for it.Fluffbrain (talk) 00:43, January 14, 2020 (UTC)

Yes, the source code is here. I believe there are some bugs with it at the moment that I haven't fixed. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 01:42, January 14, 2020 (UTC)
I see, thank you.Fluffbrain (talk) 02:06, January 14, 2020 (UTC)

I've another question - what is the template used to generate song lyrics in transcripts, such as {{#lst:What My Cutie Mark is Telling Me|song}}?Fluffbrain (talk) 06:57, January 14, 2020 (UTC)

It uses an extension called Labeled Section Transclusion. You may need to contact Wikia to enable it, depending on the wiki you want to use it on. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 08:15, January 14, 2020 (UTC)
Thank you.Fluffbrain (talk) 21:43, January 14, 2020 (UTC)

[Family Tree]

Hello there! I'm Halo. I was wondering if you could maybe organize someone to make family trees for the ponies? I would offer to do it myself but I have never done anything like that before and I don't want to stuff things up. Sorry if I sound rude. I only realized there were no family tree pages for any ponies. I was watching the episode Baby Cakes and I realized that the Cakes had unicorn and pegasus heritage in their family trees and I thought it would be interesting to see what other ponies family trees have in them. Oh, sorry I am getting ahead of myself. Anyways, thank you for your time. Halo :) QueenHalo (talk) 10:59, February 22, 2020 (UTC)

actually nevermind I just found the family and relatives page aha silly me

QueenHalo (talk) 11:02, February 22, 2020 (UTC)

actually nevermind my request is still requested as I see the family and relatives page is quite hard to read and a family tree right on the ponies personal page will probably work better. no offence meant btw these are just ideas

by halo QueenHalo (talk) 11:07, February 22, 2020 (UTC)

No offense taken! If you click the "More info" box in the infobox on a pony's page, it will show information on their relatives. That might be the best we can do, since a full family tree would be hard to format on a wiki. But if you want to work out some ideas, you can always edit your sandbox and it won't mess anything up. Feel free to ask for help if you need it. And if you have suggestions to make family and relatives easier to read, ideas are always welcome. Thanks! ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 02:12, February 23, 2020 (UTC)

UCP

Hello there!
How are you doing? I'm sharing with you an important message about the upcoming United Community Platform (UCP) this year. As you know, FANDOM and Gamepedia will receive a huge renovation for improvements of editor/user/visitor experience planned to allow all extensions currently available to the MediaWiki engine. And due to that, the community will be going through phases of the development. To stay up to date about these upcoming changes, the blog is available for you to reference. Additionally, please be on the lookout for UCP phase releases and keep the users informed. This is top priority, so making sure you know about this will make the transition smoother for you and the community. For any questions and others, as always, please don't hesitate to message me about them, and I will be happy to answer them for you!

[Discussons]

Why are there no discussions? —Preceding unsigned comment added by DellaDuckLover2004 (talkcontribs)

What kind of discussions do you mean? ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 03:20, April 28, 2020 (UTC)
They mean the Wiki feature that a number of Wikis use in favor of standard forums. To answer your question, DellaDuckLover2004, that is not a currently enabled feature on this Wiki.

Request to Delete My Stuff

Hi there. Sorry if I'm troubling you, but do you think you or someone else could delete my activity on this Wiki (talk pages, comments, whatever else can be gotten rid of)? I'm disabling my account and want to clean up some of the junk I left behind. I joined when I was quite young unfortunately, ahaha.

CupcakeCrazy43 (talk) 17:34, June 4, 2020 (UTC)

I know what you mean. I think I can delete all your page comments and blog comments, and blogs you're created, but just so you know we keep any user talk page messages that you've left or received. Will try to do this later today. Happy trails :) ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 00:00, June 5, 2020 (UTC)

Question

How did you put the wiki background on bottom? The Indonesian version of the wiki is not working. --Ivan the Brony Kaiju (t - b - c) 10:38, June 17, 2020 (UTC)

These lines in MediaWiki:Common.css should do it:
/* Bottom anchor background image */
body.background-dynamic:after,
body.background-dynamic:before {
    bottom: 0 !important;
    top: inherit !important;
}
~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 10:47, June 17, 2020 (UTC)
And how did you turn the link from http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/Main_Page into mlw:? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ivan the Brony Kaiju (talkcontribs) 02:34, 21 June 2020‎ (UTC)
You'll need to contact Fandom to request that it be added to the Interwiki map for your language's wiki. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 09:03, June 21, 2020 (UTC)

I re-edited the message

It wasn't my intention to be rude.

I always try to be as polite and friendly as possible on this wiki.

May God bless you.

TopEditors script

Your TopEditors script will work at UCP?

Thanks in advance —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bumbarek (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure. An old comment on the talk page says there might be a change affecting it, but this would also affect numerous other scripts by me and other users, so in that case maybe someone will run an automated update to those scripts. I don't have the time or interest to look at all of them, sorry. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 08:02, September 26, 2020 (UTC)

So page at DevWiki, saying that TopEditors script is ready for UCP, misleading or not? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bumbarek (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure who added that, it wasn't me. The talk page message only says it might need a change, so I asked if that's still accurate. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 00:30, September 27, 2020 (UTC)

Hope that script will work. I think it makes main page at any wiki more "alive". —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bumbarek (talkcontribs)

So, hows it going? Any progress? Bumbarek (talk) 16:15, September 30, 2020 (UTC)

TopEditors script now working. Thx for the fix. Bumbarek (talk)

End of the Year Review!

Hi there! It's been a unique and challenging year for everyone, and because of that, Fandom is debating about how to move forward in 2021. I would greatly appreciate you filling out this form with your feedback about your experience on the platform this year, so we can get a sense of how we did, how we can improve, and what our focus should be for 2021. This survey will be totally anonymous, so we encourage you to be as honest and constructive as possible.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to provide us with your thoughts and feedback. If you have any additional questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to send those my way and I will be more than happy to help you!

List of ponies bug

There's a bug I think needs to be fixed in the Full List of Ponies. In some rows, all information is shifted a column, sometimes multiple columns, to the right. And no sideways scroll bar is available either.

—Preceding unsigned comment added by Cursed--alien (talkcontribs) 19:04, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

I saw that before and was hoping it would sort itself out. I'll try to take a closer look this weekend and see if there's anything I can do. Thanks, ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 12:01, January 7, 2021 (UTC)
This should be fixed once the JS is reviewed by Fandom. Sorry for the delay and thanks for pointing it out! ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 10:48, January 11, 2021 (UTC)

New Wiki Rep & a few things

Hi there! I'm Kylara, and I'm a member of the Wiki Representatives team with the Movies/TV vertical. Fandom is doing some internal reorganizing with its teams, I'll be picking up as the community's Wiki Rep (formerly named Wiki Manager). Just like with Nightsilver before me, I'm here to help and support the community, so let me know if you have any questions. Nightsilver has given me notes on the wiki and its community to get me up to speed, and it sounds like you're very well-developed and stable, but I'd love to hear from you about your thoughts on it. So how's it been going around here on My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Wiki? Have any concerns or hopes or wish-list items? Any issues or changes you'd like to see here or are currently working on?

The Monthly - I wanted to check in to make sure that you haven't missed an email sent to you, inviting you to The Monthly, a private webinar-style event hosted by our Global Community Lead, Will 'MisterWoodhouse' Kavanagh. This series will cover important topics affecting the wiki platform, giving a briefing from Fandom. The first edition is tomorrow, Friday at 9am EST, and again at 4pm EST. The email was sent to the email associated with your Fandom account. I'm also on Discord, and I can DM you the info if you need it.

Policies - I also wanted to make sure you saw the recent staff blog on Wiki Rules and Blocking Policy. I checked the wiki's guidelines page, and it looks pretty good. It's still a good time to do a full policy review, and it if there's anything you tend to block for that might be unexpected, please make sure it's stated clearly.

Discord - I'm also a member of your wiki's Discord, so feel free to ping me or DM me. Is there an admin/mod channel where we might be able to talk on there? It could be easier to discuss things with you and the other admin all together.

Let me know if you have any questions! I look forward to working with you and the community!

– KylaraE  (talk) 01:15, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Hey there, thanks for the introduction. I'm glad they renamed the position. ImperfectXIII does most of the policing, especially now that comments are in a separate stream. I used to glance over them, but now I don't usually switch over to the Social Activity tab on RC. We had a few issues documented at Forum:UCP migration, but I haven't been keeping track of what was fixed and what wasn't. We also have some pages to adjust after "tee dot co" links were banned and editors started getting locked out of pages. Right now I'm mainly just here to fix/update code when necessary. My only wishlist item is a better design for the source editor page. For example, the header is very unhelpful and could have a link back to the page you're editing like it used to, as opposed to how the only link back right now is the scary red Cancel link. Oh, and it looks like we don't even get an email for talk page messages anymore, only in the little notifications icon that's easy to miss. Thanks and good luck in your position. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 10:12, February 26, 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for the welcome and the info, and I'm sorry for the delayed reply. As I'm sure you've noticed, there's no notification for responses on other users' talk pages, so I'll be sure to be better at following up on talk page responses so I don't miss them going forward.
Can you tell me a bit more of what you'd like to see as options in the source editor? And which source editor are you using (per Special:Preferences under editing), "VisualEditor - source mode" or regular "Source editor", and is the "editing toolbar" checked? I have a preference for the VisualEditor - source mode with the editing toolbar enabled, I like the options better, if that helps.
I also miss the link to see the page again so I could open it in a new tab while working on a page, I used to use it all the time. I'll see if we can get something changed to help with that. And thanks for the link to UCP issues forum post, I'll skim it, but can you let me know if there are any outstanding issues that you'd particularly like to get fixed?
Speaking of which, I wanted to make sure you saw that Fandom is currently in the middle of a two-week bug-smashing project, which you can read about in this Staff blog post, and you can see some of the work we've done in today's blog Bug Smashing Week 1 Roundup. If there are any particular UCP bugs that have been particularly annoying, please let me know and I can ensure they are properly ticketed so they'll get reviewed.
And once again, let me know if you have any questions!

Portable infobox design

Hi there, so i was wondering if you can make the portable infobox design for the wiki? Ivan the Brony Kaiju (t - b - c) 12:01, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Character category script

Do you know where i could find it? Ivan the Brony Kaiju (t - b - c) 11:51, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

You mean the one that works when uploading images? You can find it in MediaWiki:Common.js, search for "Automatically add categories on Special:Upload". It's pretty specialized for this wiki, though. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 11:30, March 14, 2021 (UTC)
There is a problem here.png
Okay, then why didn't i see a character category here when i was uploading an image on the Indonesian wiki? Ivan the Brony Kaiju (t - b - c) 12:29, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
It worked for me just now. Maybe you needed to wait for your browser cache to update. Also, there is an issue causing the <p> tag to be added in episode categories, that's a bug I'll have to fix sometime. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 07:42, March 17, 2021 (UTC)
Nvm, i already fixed it. Ivan the Brony Kaiju (t - b - c) 11:22, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Link image pop-up

No pop-up image.png

Hello, i have the link image pop-up JavaScript MediaWiki page on the Indonesian version, but it does not have an image pop-up when i touched the link. How can i fix this? Ivan the Brony Kaiju (t - b - c) 11:22, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

FandomDesktop

Hey again, I'm reaching out to community admin to gather feedback regarding the upcoming change to the desktop skin, called FandomDesktop, to help our team address any early concerns before we get to rollout and testing. Check out this staff blog if you haven't yet, and let me know your thoughts?

Some notable portions:

  • Light and Dark modes - A wiki can basically have two theme options, and users can pick their preference.
  • Fluid width - The content area can be expanded, and the right rail can also be collapsed, for a wider article page.
  • Global navigation - Instead of being on the top as it is now, it will be placed as a narrow bar on the left.
  • Local top navigation - This will now scroll with you as you move down the page, so you don't have to scroll back to the top to access the wiki's main navigate.
  • Header - Backgrounds are basically being replaced with a wide top header image.

Some pretty big changes coming up. So if you have any thoughts or feedback or concerns, either good and bad, please let me know!

– KylaraE  (talk) 23:22, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Sounds like it'll improve a lot of things I've found clunky about the interface. Good to see some moves forward. With the switch to a header instead of background image and other changes, I'm hoping existing wikis (some of which predate Oasis and weren't even updated for that) will still look okay and keep some theming without having to put time into the design. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 09:36, April 10, 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for your feedback. Ideally most of the existing theming will transfer to the new skin with the update. There will also be a testing period before the wiki needs to switch to the new skin, to work out any issues ahead of time, and I will be available to help with that. – KylaraE  (talk) 17:18, 11 April 2021 (UTC)


Hey again! I'm making my rounds to keep everyone updated about FandomDesktop, which is coming this summer. I've made a forum post with about it with informative links and highlights.

And while I'm here, The Downstream is a new live-event happening this Friday, if you'd like to check it out.

Let me know how things are going around here and if you have any questions!

– KylaraE  (talk) 00:44, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

Thank you

But he should be blocked permanently not just for one day cause he really has serious issues for what ever lies he's talking about this site and you guys but will you keep an eye out for him on the Community Central and SOAP and inform the fandom to keep him out just in case please? Flashimmer (talk) 04:44, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Block him permanently

Please block this crazy user forever this time cause he's still out of his mind with his immature nonsense! Flashimmer (talk) 06:13, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Thanks

Just a quick thanks for fixing the Arabic link.Fluffbrain (talk) 05:42, 25 June 2021 (UTC)

Kevinpendergast

Can you please help me out here cause this user is making fake articles meaning he can't be trusted to be here on this wiki if he keeps doing this so please permablock him? Flashimmer (talk) 23:51, 28 June 2021 (UTC)

We don't usually permablock for edits that are not obviously malicious. "Please stop and never come back" is not a constructive way to try to get someone to edit within the wiki's guidelines. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 06:59, June 29, 2021 (UTC)

FandomDesktop follow-up

Hey again, so I haven't really gotten feedback from any of the admin here regarding FandomDesktop, so I wanted to check in one last time to see if there's any interest in it. The wiki looks fine to me in the new skin, everything works that I can see, it just needs an updated theme design. I'd also like to see the infoboxes compatible for light/dark theme switching, and the appearances table given a box-sizing: border-box; style so they don't automatically scroll. So if it's all the same to you, I'll put a quick layout together, tweak the code, and mark the wiki as ready to migrate to the new skin. Did you have any other plans for the new layout, have you gotten a chance to look at the new skin, or do you have any thoughts on this? If so, please bring them up on my blog post to discuss! – KylaraE  (talk) 00:40, 29 June 2021 (UTC)

I opted in a while ago but haven't checked out many pages or looked for differences between the skins. I did see that some pages once again have a vertical scroll bar. There also seems to be an issue with table captions (and maybe headings?) not being centered correctly. I would have to look into what changed to cause these and other issues like with Appearances and haven't had the time or inclinination to work on this skin, especially the light/dark thing. If you have some ideas in mind, that would be helpful. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 06:59, June 29, 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for your feedback. Can you link me to specific examples of the issues you're seeing? I'll be happy to take a look and see if I can come up with fixes. – KylaraE  (talk) 18:26, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

Years later...

Template R

Hi, Bobogoobo.

The template R didn't seem to work because when I checked my images which are linked to Imgur on my userpage, it wouldn't display thumbnails and only showed URLs instead. Do you think the template was bugged or something?

Please share your mind. Thanks. Black the mage Talk  05:59, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

I think Fandom stopped allowing automatic embeds of this type. I'm not sure if there is a new way to do it that we could replace the template with, sorry. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40?cb=20120702121758 10:08, September 2, 2021 (UTC)
