  • Disabling Message Wall


    Now that all Special:Forum posts have been moved to the Forum: namespace, and all blog posts have been moved to the Forum: namespace, the next obvious step is to move all Message Wall threads to User_talk pages.

    I've mentioned several times in the past that I regret ever enabling Message Wall, but that we were stuck with it because it would mean losing access years of ..→

  • Lazy loading and the future of blogs


    When lazy loading was introduced, search engines lost the ability to see blog comments.

    I unfortunately didn't notice this until last year. I immediately asked Wikia Staff if this was intentional, they said they would look into it, but never got back to me.

    I recently remembered this issue again, and asked for a follow-up, and a different member of Wikia Staff replied, instead of the one who was looking into it. They also said they will look into it, but that "I think ..→

  • Discussions and the future of the Forum


    It's a well known fact that Wikia never bothered to complete these "New" forums.

    Wikia have now decided that instead of finishing it, they're scrapping it and replacing it with a new feature which looks like twitter.

    All wikis that use the New Forums will be automatically switched over to the new "Discussions" feature. As such, I will be transferring all existing New Forum threads back to the old Forum, and disabling the New Forum.

    I will be performing the transfer ..→

  • 900 referenced articles


    As of today, there are 900 articles with references, which is appropriately two thirds of all articles.

    The Saints Row Wiki is more verifiably accurate than ever!

    Currently, there are still 250 articles with reference requests, and 35 articles with unlabelled references which need to be updated.

    When I first started, there were no ..→

  • Anon editing disabled (temporarily, now enabled)


    Since 2012, I have been reporting a bug to Wikia Staff which causes categories to be duplicated.

    In 2013, I actually went out of my way to help them diagnose the problem, because I naively believed that they actually cared about the quality of their website, and would fix the problem.

    Originally, the bug occured to both logged in users and anon users, but they fixed something so that logged in users can no longer cause the bug, but anons still can. They have known that ..→

  • Inactive user image policy


    Like all Wikia wikis, the Saints Row Wiki is not a free personal hosting site, web storage facility, or image repository.

    Like many wikis, this wiki allows users to upload images for use on their userpages, as outlined on Saints Row Wiki:Accounts#User Pages.

    The current policy for unused non-article files is immediate deletion, but there is no current policy about what to do with non-article files which are in use on the userpages ..→

  • New Translation request template


    From time to time, helpful bilingual people add translations to the wiki, but we've never really kept track of which pages need translations.

    I have now created Category:Translation requests and {{translate}}.

    If you notice a mission or character page which needs a translation, mark it with {{translate}}. To specify which language needs to be translated, add the name of the language as the first parameter, for example: ..→

  • April Fools' day 2016


    I hope everyone enjoyed April Fools' Day this year.

    If you missed it, you can either set your computer's date back temporarily, or edit Special:MyPage/common.js with:

    importArticles({ type: 'script', article: 'user:452/SaintsRow.js' });

    I've personally had this script active since last August, and it's a constant source of amusement. 452, 2016-04-02T15:57:20Z

  • Reference marker style


    In October 2015, I began a trial of replacing the reference marker from [1] to *.

    (All references in this post are fake)

    The purpose[2] of the change[3] was to make the references[4] less obtrusive[5], as the default format[6] was sometimes jarring[7] when reading a paragraph[8] containing many of them.[8]

  • Changing "Description" headings to "Overview"


    In many cases, the heading "Description" doesn't properly describe that section.

    The reason the term "Description" was used is that it was part of the default page layout.

    Another term which was in use in some articles long ago was "Overview", which is somewhat more appropriate in many cases.

    I propose changing "Description" to "Overview".

    Can anyone suggest a more appropriate heading for the first section of an article? 452, 2016-01-01T15:05:49Z

  • Special:NewFiles Highlighting


    I have added a red outline to unused images on Special:NewFiles to make it easier to check which have been added to articles.

    Unlike Special:UnusedFiles and Saints Row Wiki:UnusedFiles, Special:NewFiles is not cached, and updates immediately.

    While single broken images are added to Category:Broken file links immediately, broken images in the gallery are not, and are only added to Special:WantedFiles when the daily cache updates, so the ..→

  • To all mobile skin users


    It is not my fault that the Saints Row Wiki now looks terrible in the mobile skin, and at this time there is nothing I can do to undo the changes.

    If you scroll to the bottom of any page while using the mobile skin, there is a "full site" link which will load the full skin.

    I would say "I'm sorry", but it would be meaningless as I am in no way responsible for it.

    Wikia Staff made this change without announcing it, so there was not even the opportunity to give feedback ..→

  • Wikia layout changes


    As you may have noticed, Wikia has recently tweaked the display of articles at different resolutions.

    You should have received a notification about this in the bottom right corner linking to the announcement.

    In 2012, Wikia had a fixed-content-width, which showed the exact same content space on all screens. Then they changed to what they referred to as "Fluid layout", ..→

  • Blank Notification Emails


    Starting tomorrow, anyone who has unchecked "Send me HTML emails" in Special:Preferences will receive blank notification emails.

    Wikia Staff have confirmed that this is intentional. 452, 2015-04-14T00:26:06Z
    (last edited: 452, 2015-04-14T00:26:25Z)

  • Category Exhibition disabled


    I have disabled the "Category Exhibition" feature, again, due to additional bugs I've uncovered in this feature.

    I liked this feature, so it's a shame that there are so many bugs with it.

    If at some point in the future someone would like me to re-enable this feature, leave a message here and I will review whether the problems I have reported have been fixed.

    For reference, here is a little history:

    As you may have noticed, I've been periodically updating old references since December.

    There are currently 3 maintenance pages listing references which need to be updated. These are relatively easy tasks which anyone can do, and are a great way for new contributors to increase their edit count.

  • Disabling Syntax Highlighting


    Does anyone at all on the Saints Row Wiki care whether the new Syntax Highlighting is switched off?

    As I mentioned in my last post, on March 9th, when I had Syntax Highlighting turned on, there was supposed to have been an option added to Special:Preferences to turn off highlighting, but the option they have added only turns it off for articles, and not for JS and CSS pages.

    I only volunteered to test it here because I thought they would add the ability to fully ..→

  • Enabling Syntax Highlighting


    Wikia Staff have announced a new syntax highlighting feature, and I have volunteered the Saints Row Wiki to be part of the beta.

    See User blog:Kirkburn/Syntax highlighting - helping you read and write code for an explanation of the feature.

    This effects users who use the "Source" tab of the "classic rich text editor", or the plain Source editor. In case you're ..→

  • Specific Tab loading


    The observant amongst you may have noticed that starting a few weeks ago, a random dialogue tab is chosen when you load a page. (Used mostly on SRTT/SRIV mission pages)

    If you didn't notice, check it out: Learning Computer#Prologue

    Thanks to a suggestion today, I've now also implemented linking to a specific tab: Learning Computer#Female 2.

    This probably won't be too useful, but it's there if anyone wants to use it. 452, 2015-01-30T02:46:50Z

  • Additional moderator rights


    Currently, the "Discussions Moderators" group can only perform admin functions on Forums and Walls.

    I propose that the "Discussions Moderators" group also be given the ability to perform the same functions on Blog and Comments, because those are also discussions which normal users cannot edit.

    It has been proposed by multiple users on Community Central already, so may become default eventually, but I want to enable here immediately instead of waiting.

    Of course, we ..→

  • New Hades Map


    I enabled the new Wikia Maps feature a few months ago, but there hasn't been much activity so far, so I've gone ahead and created a New Hades map.

    User:WildBrick142 and I have been adding pins to the map, but everyone is welcome to help out.

    Please add any and all locations in Saints Row: Gat out of Hell!

    But please be careful, as it's easy to accidentally click delete instead of cancel. Needless to say, anyone who deliberately vandalises the map will be blocked ..→

  • User Groups 2015


    Update

    This has now been done. All "Task Forces" are now "To-do lists", located in Category:To-do.

    Original

    The name "Task Forces" was chosen because it was the best we could come up with.

    However, I've since realised that the name "To-do lists" would probably work better.

    I propose that Task Forces be renamed "To-do lists".

    Can anyone think of a reason they shouldn't be renamed, or come up with a better name?

  • Inter-wikia links


    Required reading: Forum:Always ask questions, Help:Interwiki links.

    Since May, I've been attempting to find out the reasons behind the wide-spread use of using interwiki links to link to other Wikia wikis.

    Star saints

    For the remainder of this post, I will be using the term "interwikia link" to mean "An interwiki link to a Wikia wiki"

  • Monthly Wiki cursor


    3 months ago, I proposed that the mouse cursor used on the wiki be changed. As there have been more votes for than against, and no vocal opposition, I have now changed it.

    The current cursor is now Pimp Cane - Saints Row 2 icon.

    The poll for next month's cursor is at Top 10 list:Next month's mouse cursor.

  • Disambiguating titles


    There are many subjects in the Saints Row series which share the same title, so out of necessity, we have pages on the wiki which have notes in the page title to differentiate between them.

    Since the first words of each is "Guardian Angel" is a ...., the displayed title is a little redundant. The second line on both of those pages is a link to the other.

    So, we're doing a trial run of ..→

  • The new VisualEditor


    Wikia Staff have been developing a new VisualEditor for several months now, and until recently it has been optional feature which the local admins of each wiki could choose whether to enable.

    I approve of the concept in principle, but after testing it, I made the determination that it was not yet mature enough to enable on this wiki. (See below for an explanation.)

    Wikia Staff have now soft-enabled the new VisualEditor on all wikis - you can set it in your preferences, ..→

  • Shortening DLC titles


    In March, I posted a poll "Shortening DLC titles", with two options:

    • Use official titles only, no matter how long they are. (37 votes)
    • Shorten "Saints Row 2: Corporate Warfare" to "Corporate Warfare" (And all similar titles) (2 votes)

    Not a single person gave a reason for their vote. One person left a comment "Looks more proffesional." without stating which looks more professional.

    Despite 37 voting for long titles, not a single person renamed "How the Saints ..→

  • User Stars


    You may have noticed that some users have custom icons in their user header. We call these "User Stars", as they started out as "Gold Stars" which were given for outstanding contributions, although now any image on the wiki can be used. A display of all currently defined user stars is available at User:Test.

    If you think that someone's contributions deserve a user star, contact an admin and let them know.

    As an example, here are some ..→

  • Fluid layout


    As you may have noticed, Wikia rolled out their fluid layout to all wikis today. Now, more horizontal space is utilised by article content, which is a good thing. Now everyone benefits from seeing more of an article without scrolling: people with huge monitors, people with tablets, or just people who like to resize their browser.

    Of course, not everyone is happy about the change, but Wikia have been very working on it very openly for months, and appear to be ..→

  • On the Wiki links removed


    Oasis users may notice that the "On the Wiki" navbar is slightly less useful today, as the links to "Recent Changes" and "New Pages" have been removed. (Monobook users are not affected by this change, their links are intact.)

    It was not my decision to remove the links, and I'm sorry I could not get them re-added.
    We encourage everybody on the wiki to use both "Recent Changes" and ..→

  • Templates dropdown


    I've added a new dropdown in the editTools section of the editor which adds a convenient way of adding templates.

    It's mostly finished, but currently in the testing phase.

    If you'd like to help test it, go to Special:MyPage/wikia.js and add: importScript('user:452/customEdittools.js');

  • Portals


    We now have Portal pages for each major game in the series, containing links to every article related to each game.

    We've had a well-designed category system for some time, but the only problem is that Category:Games only links to the "in Saints Row X" pages, so you can't get to the Fine Aim article starting from Category:Saints Row 2.

    Again: Spoilers are fine, but must be properly referenced, and located in the appropriate section of relevant articles.

    The events of missions should first be added to mission articles. Feel free to create them if they do not exist.
