Well done friend, you are now a bureaucrat. I'm sure things will get better and better now that you have more access to everything. One more thing, I added Star Fox Zero enemies and bosses categories that don't seem to show up when I try adding them. If you want to help sort that query out then feel free, it seems like several Star Fox 64 enemies are returning indicating that the Venom army are the main antagonists again.([[User:Son of Andross|Son of Andross]] ([[User talk:Son of Andross|talk]]) 16:00, July 10, 2015 (UTC))

Revision as of 20:40, July 12, 2015

Hi there

ExpertEnding3DSHard
Welcome to Arwingpedia, the Star Fox Wiki. Since the newest game has been announed, there's alot of work to be done around here, adding good quality in-game pictures and details. Details are sketchy until the game is actually released but never say never. You've been a great help with getting good quality photos added to relevant articles and you seem keen and loyal to the Star Fox series, so I trust your work. Feel free to leave me a message and I'll get back to you ASAP. Keep up that good work! Son of Andross (talk) 20:20, June 22, 2015 (UTC)

Administration

SF64 Medal
Congratulations friend, you are now an Administrator. You are free to edit any articles at all, even protected ones. If it can be done, I have a new chore for you, the Star Fox: Assault/Script could really benefit from having tabs marked out by: Mission 1, Mission 2 etc, then rounded of by Misc for general quotes in single player and VS mode. Keep up that good work! (Son of Andross (talk) 11:44, June 25, 2015 (UTC))

Relationships

When you asked about adding a Relationships tab on Fox's article, I thought about it and then I wondered if the tab would be better off under the name of Physical appearance and traits? You could get a relationships section under a tab with that name, then it would sound better on articles like Andross or Wolf.Son of Andross (talk) 19:01, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

Hello there! Welcome to Arwingpedia. Glad to meet you StarFox0.

I'm excited for Star Fox Zero. Comes out just in time for Christmas.

Absent

Hi friend, just to let you know, I'm going on holiday for two weeks as of today so I thought I'd inform you that I'll be away and unable to make edits, so it'll leave you in command. As for the changes in layout and such, believe me when I tell you, I encourage you to do absolutely whatever you see fit since you're now an Administrator. If you want to add tabs to every article, change the wiki's background and site logo to "Arwingpedia" in a more updated Star Fox font, feel free to do it. If there are vandals Wreck-It-Ralphing around, take action. I'm leaving everything to you till I get back. (Son of Andross (talk) 17:19, June 27, 2015 (UTC))</div></div>

Request for help

Hi StarFox0. I approved your request, and I'm here to help.

You described what you'd like a new logo to look like, so I made File:StarFoxWiki.png based on the StarFox Zero logo. Let me know if you want me to change anything. If you like it, I could probably use the S and F to make a new favicon, unless you have something else in mind for a new favicon.

Also, please share with me any ideas or details you have about redesigning the main page, and I'll get to work on that. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 22:16, June 29, 2015 (UTC)

When I cropped out the S and F from the logo and shrank it down to favicon size, it didn't look very good. But I found a sprite image of McCloud's face and used that instead. It looks much better than the "SF" did. It may take up to several hours for the new favicon to appear on your broswer, but in the meantime you can see it by going to Special:ThemeDesigner and click on the Wordmark tab. If you don't see it there, you can view it directly here. Let me know if you want me to try something different.
You should also be able to see the updated background image displaying the walker and arwing. I scaled them down a bit so that most of the images would be visible on medium-sized screens (1366x768 to 1440x900). Let me know if you want me to change anything.
Oh, and take as much time as you need for the main page details. Both jpg and pdf filetypes can be uploaded here, so either is fine with me. Just give me a heads up when it's ready. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 20:03, June 30, 2015 (UTC)
Forgot to mention it, and you may already know it, but if you do not want the background image to scroll with the page, go to the theme designer and check the box marked "fix" and Save. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 20:05, June 30, 2015 (UTC)
I see that you commented on my talk page as soon as I uploaded the new background image. :) Regarding what you said about the nav bar, did you mean using a simple background image on the nav bar (instead of the current dark blue), or did you mean using a background image for that upper area where the nav bar and logo appears? An example of what I mean on the second part of that question can be seen at Toriko Wiki. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 20:11, June 30, 2015 (UTC)
Ah, ok. You mean the nav bar shape first designed by an admin at Dead Space Wiki several years ago. Let me know what color and shade you'd like to try, and I can create the proper color variations to match those used there. Then I'll copy over and update the needed CSS. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 22:54, June 30, 2015 (UTC)
I have almost no experience with JS, but I did recognize that type of slider as being a custom-made slider from Halo Nation. T3CHNOCIDE is the user that worked on it, so I would advise asking him for help. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 18:00, July 2, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the mockup! Just to get a head start, I just made an edit to the main page to rearrange things to match the mockup, add Portal/Slider and Portal/Games, and delete any sections that are not on the mockup. It's near the end of the workday, and Wikia staff is off work tomorrow (July 3) and Monday (July 6) for US Independence Day. I look forward to finishing the redesign next week and giving you guys a new look to be proud of. Enjoy your weekend! JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 22:07, July 2, 2015 (UTC)
If you haven't noticed it yet, purge your browser cache using Ctrl+F5 (Cmd+F5 if you're on a Mac) to see the new nav menu design. Let me know if those colors work or if you want me to change something.
I also created Template:Heading using an imported Google Font (specfically, Fugaz One) that seemed like a possible good fit. If you'd like to try a different one, feel free to browse the fonts and tell me the name of the font you choose. The font's name appears under the example text. When you click that Google Font link, the first font that appears by default is named Open Sans, just to show you exactly where the font name is. Anyway, you can see some example headings at User:JoePlay/test. For now, I left the text color as black, but let me know what color you'd like to use. I wasn't sure if blue would be good, or if the green or orange from the logo would be better.
Lastly, for the image links in the Navigation section, link me to the image that you want to use for each topic (characters, bosses, enemies, locations, vehicles, and affiliations), and I'll get started on designing new image buttons. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 22:26, July 7, 2015 (UTC)
Oh, and here are the steps you'll need to do for embedding a Twitter feed:
1. Log in on Twitter and go here to create an embedded "user timeline". When you're done, it will generate a line of HTML code.
2. Create a MediaWiki page here, such as MediaWiki:TwitterFeed or MediaWiki:TwitterWidget and paste that HTML code.
3. Enter <verbatim>TwitterFeed</verbatim> (or whatever page name you choose) on the main page where you want it to appear.

(resetting indent)
Cool, I'm glad you like the font. As for the color of the content page, I think it would be best to put it to a community vote. If the color does change to something dark, the text color on Template:Heading can easily be changed. Also, when generating the HTML code for the Twitter feed, I think there is an option to choose either a light or dark theme. So you'll want to decide the page color first so that you'll know which color theme to choose for the Twitter feed. I'll get started on the navigation images now and let you know when they're done. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 17:45, July 8, 2015 (UTC)

The new navigation images are now on the main page. :) JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 19:11, July 8, 2015 (UTC)
I created Template:Affiliation with the two current affiliated wikis and added it to the main page. To add another Wikia community to the list, first go to File:Wiki-wordmark.png on that wiki and download the image to your computer, then upload it here. After that, edit the template and copy-paste the following example code just after one of the existing closing </div> tags.
<div style="display:inline-block; font-weight:bold; margin-right:20px; margin-bottom:20px">[[File:IMAGE.png|link=w:c:subdomain]]</div>
Just replace IMAGE.png with the correct image name and replace "subdomain" with the wiki's subdomain ( ____.wikia.com ), such as fantendo or gaming.
If you're adding a non-Wikia site, find a way to download their logo (or ask them to provide it), and for the link= part, replace w:c:subdomain with the full URL to their site, such as https://www.google.com/. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 21:17, July 8, 2015 (UTC)
Since the heading template is mostly done, I added the section headings to the main page, including the Affiliation section. If the community decides to change to a dark page color, simply edit Template:Heading to add color:_____; to the div. Or ask me, and I'll be happy to update it. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 23:16, July 8, 2015 (UTC)
"If we ever wanna add a new section to the main page, do we simply just copy the code for one of the headings and then put what section we want to add after it?"
Yes, and sorry about that. I meant to explain that but forgot. To add a new section, simply insert {{Heading|Title}} followed by the content of the new section. The template will automatically display the heading as all caps.
I'm happy I could help, and I'm glad everyone likes the new look. :) Keep up the good work! And feel free to contact me for help if the page color changes to dark. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 14:59, July 9, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Star Fox 2015 Notice

As a fellow administrator, I appreciate your reaching out to the community, especially the rather derelict one that is Arwingpedia.  I was able to create a blog last year, that drew little attention. Anyway, as a proud wikian and one of the most obsessed Star Fox fans, I definitely can help support the "rebuilding" of the Star Fox wiki, given that fellow effort is alongside.

Thanks!  1hs444  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯   1hs444 sig 01:57, June 30, 2015 (UTC)

Reply

I think I'd rather reply to your message on my talk page, on my talk page. Thanks for the heads up. Dogman15 (talk) 07:51, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

Adding meat to the Twitter account

Hey, since you're not on chat, I'll just inform you here.

I'm going to be tweeting quite a bit on the twitter account to make it look a bit more seasoned, and just was hoping that'd be great. I'll give misc. articles spotlights on the feed that are interesting, but probably wouldn't get featured on the main page.  For example, characters in Star Fox 2, or that Virtual Boy demo.

Thanks!  1hs444  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯   1hs444 sig 21:50, July 9, 2015 (UTC)

Affiliation

I have added star fox wiki to the affiliation page. If you want mweto change the image to something different you can just send it to me. But right now this is what it looks like Nintendo Wiki .Starfox u (talk) 12:00, July 10, 2015 (UTC)

Back

Hi friend, I'm back from my two weeks in the sun. You'll be delighted to know that I had some play throughs of Star Fox 64 3D and caught some changes that I missed before. If there's anything you want to ask me about I'll get back to you ASAP. (Son of Andross (talk) 12:11, July 10, 2015 (UTC))
