For whatever reason, it won't let me post a topic there, so I'm just going to go straight to the source:
We've got a user who started spouting support for pseudoscience linking race to IQ unprompted, then went on a tirade when I expressed distaste for their racist conspiracy theory, making shit up I never said to claim I hate Asians & support Nazis. When confronted with the fact that actual living Nazis agree with her, she admitted she doesn't care.
So, I was snooping around here to see if I had missed any pages that might be necessary to delete over on the Spanish Wiki as well, but it seems that after a few seconds of checking the archived discussions on the "Votes for deletion" page, it pops me back to this page. Any idea why that is?
Alright, sounds good. By the way, on a somewhat related matter, I decided it's time I learn JS. I'm trying out "codeacademy", but I was wondering where you learned. Was it hard? Or is it relatively easy like CSS? It definitely looks a bit more intimidating and from the looks of it, you can do a hell lot more than just change colors and add images :P
Haha, it can definitely be used to do many weird and wonderful things. From the top of my head, I've dealt in animations, asynchronous loading of content, user interfaces, a mapping tool, and used it to communicate specific instructions to wikia's API to send and receive specific backend information from their servers. It is indeed very useful.
I won't lie and say it's easy, but if you start now and keep at it, and use it solve simple problems for people as you go, you should get the hang of it fast. It's like learning a language, the more you use it, the more you learn, the more vocabulary you get, the more you can hold a conversation (in this case, solve more complex problems) and so on. Anyway, use W3schools, it's great, and look up "Jquery documentation" on google if you want the unabridged version.
Wow. This really sounds like a lot of fun. I get what you mean by reviewing and playing around; that's how I learned CSS. However, I always approached JS differently because I always imagined it would be so much more complex, but in the end, I guess it really comes down to practicing like crazy.
Also, considering that Republic City is so central to events around The Legend of Korra, I think that it will be useful to have a separate map of the city in the same format we have for the Avatar World. I know that some episodes such as this one have provided a map of the city. The same could apply to other cities such as Ba Sing Se or any other capital city by backtracking certain episodes, if there is one. There is also a possibility of creating our own map. However, even if such a map is available, this city map project might fall short due to the lack of enough information to be able to accurately pinpoint each spot.
All of this brings up another question: how did folks know the location of obscure places like the aforementioned Quarry campsite and Beach cave? If we know where people get the information from, perhaps creating a map of capital cities would be more feasible by using the same tools they use. PS: it is important to point out that the location for some places like Yu Dao are currently unknown.
Well, I would like the map to contain all the locations that we do know of, because picking and choosing what is noteworthy and what is not for the map isn't really a debate I would like to get into.
For the separate map, I think you might want to put that to the War Room and check if the community sees merit in the idea. It is certainly possible however to integrate multiple maps into the one interactive display that we have now.
Those locations are known because of this site. Since you seem to be interesting in making changes to the map, I have given you access to the main editing tool that you can use from the map itself. It should make things easier for you to add/remove/edit pins, and I do need someone to at least bugcheck the thing.
I noticed that on Avatar Wiki:IRC Access the <verbatim> tag is no longer embedding the Freenode gateway. To fix that I found that a snippet (below) has to be added to MediaWiki:Common.js*. Additionally Avatar Wiki:IRC Access would have to have the <verbatim> tag replaced with a different code snippet (also below). *I'd like to note that while I stole this off of VSTF wiki, I have not tested the code myself.
I was trying to create a page on VfD for Avatar Wiki:IRC guide/Nick warning but for some reason I seem to be incapable of doing so. Not sure if namespace is causing it or the slash is, but since you wrote the current VfD I thought I'd bring it to your attention.
The VfD page hasn't been working for several years now, as far as I'm aware. I remember quite a while back I tried to make a VfD for Brittney Williams since she was no longer going to be the artist for Turf Wars but it didn't work, so I spoke to Lostris about it and deleted it. Just some more information on the situation.
Thanks! I really hope you don't mind me using you as a labrat for this. Clearly, there is something wrong with the inputbox, and I'm not sure if it's because the MediaWiki extension was updated and broke stuff. I've switched to the old createbox style which is used by the War Room.
@FireFerret: Can you please try it again?
EDIT: Actually, it may not have anything to do with what I've mentioned above. So don't worry if it doesn't work this time either.
Sorry, I should have been more specific. I copied in Avatar Wiki:IRC guide/Nick warning and was able to see the edit page. I typed my comments in and hit publish and then it redirected me to the VfD page with no page published. I checked my contribs and I did not see anything in there to indicate that I had hit the publish button nor did I see anything in RC. I'm running Chrome 60 on macOS.
Yep, I think the problem was with the js. I've changed it, but until the script is approved I won't really know if the problem has been fixed - since I need one of you to test it. I'll update this thread when that happens.
Most peculiar. I tried in Chrome 60 but it did not work, however once I tried in Safari 9.1.2 it did work. So I guess it's browser end? I didn't bother to clear cache on Chrome though.
Huh, I'm on FireFox 55.0.3 and it didn't work for me.
One thing I noticed-- today I attempted to edit the VfD TF created and I was having issues with that too, it seems whatever the problem is it's not inherent to the creation of a page but editing the page altogether. I hope this information is of some help!
Yep that helps. I've submitted a few changes, and I'm sure this time it will work. The execution is a bit less subtle though... You'll see anyway, because I'll personally ask you to test it after the script goes live!
Hey there, KMP! As you may or may not know already, I'm an admin over at the Spanish Wiki (I think you know because I've asked you for help countless times :P).
Anyway, I was also made admin of the Spanish Avatar Wiki Facebook page. We've grown over the years and as of right now, we have nearly 85,000 likes on the page. We grew tremendously, especially over the last 4 months. We had like 15,000 likes in May. Anyway, this wiki also has a Facebook page.
I want to help make it grow as it currently has 7,000 likes. The way to grant a user admin rights on a Facebook page is simple. If you know who the current administrators are (and considering they can be contacted, the page hasn't posted anything in 4 years), they can make me an administrator by adding the e-mail linked to my account (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I don't know if 888 will be able to respond to you quickly in regards to this matter, but do you think you could ask him for all of Avatar Wiki's accounts' passwords? Then maybe I could access the Facebook page and help it grow.
A spammer came by the chat just now, and no matter what I do in the chat, my kicks and bans aren't sticking. The only way I can solve the problem is roundabout, but it's just strange. I've never had a problem with this before. Is there some bug there that he might be exploiting somehow?
