  • Hi Wikiawrider,

    You're the most recently-active administrator of this wiki, so I'm wondering if you can offer me any insight into the infobox situation on this wiki.

    Several of this wiki's userboxes are non-portable (ie. they do not display content appropriately on some mobile devices). There are also some infoboxes that are marked for deletion, yet they are still being used on some of the wiki's articles. I would like to work toward making all infoboxes portable on the wiki, and removing any unused ones, if possible, but I'm curious if the wiki already has any plans to work toward this goal. I can help with the process of course, but I would like to check in with you or another administrator before proceeding.

    I'm also curious if you have any issue with the addition of infoboxes to several of the wikis articles which currently do not have one. Infoboxes are a great way to summarize info about a topic succinctly, and in a manner which is compatible across all devices. However, I notice that a lot of this wiki's articles don't contain an infobox, despite them being a good fit for one. Has this been a conscious design choice by yourself and the other maintainers of this wiki, or is it simply a task that no one has got to yet? I could also help with the process of implementing infoboxes on a bunch of the wiki's articles.

    What are your thoughts?

    • Hi Sitb

      Most that are marked for deletion, should not be marked for deletion. What I consider should be deleted is spam and vandalism pages or pictures that could appear. Should those appear then they’ll be removed as fast as possible.

      I have asked two of my bureaucrats to help reverse the marked for deletion, since it’s so many files and pages that are mis placed to be Marked for a deletion.

      But you’re welcome to help with infoboxes and files to be not marked for deletion.

    • Hi Wikiawrider,

      I know it's been a while, but I thought I'd give you an update on the infobox situation:

      I have converted all of the remaining infoboxes on this wiki into a portable format, so there will no longer be any problems for those viewing content on mobile devices. The infoboxes take their theme from the rest of the wiki, so whenever Special:ThemeDesigner is updated, the infoboxes looks will be updated to match the rest of the wiki's theme.

      As always, if there is any other way you think I can assist the wiki, don't hesitate to give me a poke!🙂

  • Probie actually means someone "on probation" (i.e. "Someone holding a position on a probationary basis, subject to performance or examination".)  And the only person aboard the chopper who fits the description is the Junior Deputy as he or she is not yet a full Deputy.

      Ok, I remembered is someone who has a profession in a high level, which Marshal fits too. But since you are english speak (I assume) Then you're more likey correct :)

    Just for your info: I needed to block a user in this wiki's discussions for posting inappropriate images.

  • Well, I strongly disagree with the removal of that reference. I think adding a [PC Only], [PS4 only], etc. tag would be preferable to removal. Modding is mostly a PC-exclusive feature anyway, but I don't see e.g. Witcher admins removing modding related information because "it is not applicable to consoles". (E.g. https://witcher.fandom.com/wiki/Storage_mods#Kalkstein_mod).

    Please re-consider. Thank you!

    • I understand your disagreement, but also why mention mods? We could create a Mods page if you like?

    • A "Mods" or "Modding" page is actually a good idea. As for mentioning mods, why should we exclude factual information, just because access to it and the ability to verify it are limited to PC users? There have always been PC/console specific features/bugs in games. I think as long as they are properly identified as a platform exclusive feature, they are fine.

  • Hi. There has been a fair amount of off topic posts lately and I noticed that we dont have a discussions moderator on the wiki. I think I'd be suited for the position as I have experience with the role and am very active on the discussions board.

    • Hey sorry for late repply, I'll see what I can do, if not the other moderators have been working on it :)
