"Unregistered" editing OK!

Maybe you can get into the habit of identifying yourself somehow when you do edits logged out. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 22:51, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

I do so when I'm commenting on discussions (as you see here and as I did on User talk:‎‎), but there's generally no way to do so when making mainspace edits without putting something in the edit summary, which often means I would have to shorten my edit summary for some edits. I'll start identifying myself here when I have room in the edit summary, but you can also ask about any edit you suspect might be me, right here on my talk page. =) --Dinoguy1000 (talkcontribslogsblock log) as 04:42, February 28, 2010 (UTC)`

User sub pages

I guess I should have checked your page's code first. It looked like it was hard-coded, so I incorrectly assumed it was hard coded. That was a fail at being clever... --Yoshord 00:43, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

Help with some templates

Sir, I humbly ask for your help with some of the local templates here. I've recently transferred the code for character infoboxes over to the Vanquish Wiki for use. I managed to piece together a good one (in my opinion at least) at a sandbox I had set up there, but I'm having problems with the font. I can't seem to render the font color to white.

Since you are one of the top users I thought I'd ask you for help. I've already sent a message to Kirkburn on his CW Talkpage, but he isn't replying. Here's the link to said sandbox. As I await your reply sir ^_^ --WarClownWanna Talk? 12:38, September 12, 2010 (UTC)

If you had sysop rights, you could add .infobox th, .infobox td {color:white;} to the wiki's MediaWiki:Common.css. Since you don't have that, the only other way is to put the style in every element's style element, but that gets ugly and I don't recommend it. --Yoshord 15:07, September 12, 2010 (UTC)
You're overcomplicating it, Yoshord; all you have to do is add "color: white;" to the table's style attribute; it automatically applies to all table cells. I would still recommend getting an admin (preferably one with some CSS knowledge) to add the rule to your wiki's Common.css, though, War Clown. (and one last note, there's no need to be so formal with me, I'm Just Another User... ;) ) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 17:21, September 12, 2010 (UTC)
Well I checked the template on the Vanquish Wiki, and I see that you've already taken the liberty of doing it for me. Thanks :D About being formal, I just wanted to make a good first impression, since I only know tidbits about the templates...That and I was practicing my English =P Anyways, Thank you so much! --WarClownWanna Talk? 10:32, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Hi, im with a problem . . . i created a wikia, and when i try to make a template, i cant.

The only template i my wikia allows me to do it the "infobox" and everytime i do it, it is in the left side of the page and not in the right . . .

Can you help me? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tuga1143 (talkcontribs) 03:18, September 15, 2010. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Hello Tuga1143, first, please sign your posts by typing four tildes (~~~~) after your message.
It sounds like you need some styles in your wiki's MediaWiki:Common.css page, but I can't be sure without actually seeing the infobox - could you provide a link to your wiki, and to the infobox template you're having problems with? ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 02:30, September 16, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, im sorry. My infobox appears allways on the left side. I cant find the problem . . .
Here is my wikia:
Thank you. (Tuga1143 13:38, September 19, 2010 (UTC))
I assume the infobox you're talking about is, right? If so, as I said, you did not copy the necessary styles into your MediaWiki:Common.css file. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 16:27, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
No, im talking about the infobox, there are a lot of boxes and i dont know how to add then int my wikia, so im asking if you could tell me what i have to do to add then into my wikia. Tuga1143 19:49, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
You're wanting to know how to add the template to pages? To start with, it appears that Template:VeryLongInfobox is the generic {{Infobox}} template, meaning you'll have to use it to create the actual templates you want - instructions can be found on Template:Infobox/doc, which you should copy to for convenience (you should also copy {{Documentation}} and its documentation - it looks like most of the templates you *should* have on your wiki aren't there, but there's not nearly enough in your deletion log to account for it...). ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 22:58, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

Adoption request

I'm fine with your request. I'm not a bureaucrat after all, just a sysop.

Hello once again sir! It's me, War Clown, guy from the Vanquish Wiki. I don't know if you remember me or not, but I was hoping if you can help me with another template problem, this time on the Assassin's Creed Wiki. First off, we have this template here that we're using for one of the wiki's community-based projects. Our main problem with the template is this:

Our text color is white, and the selected page button background is also white. When you're in a page, the current tab up top is blank, since the text blends in with the back. We need to change the color of the current tab text.

D. Cello, head honcho of the wiki, regarding our problem with the template.

There we go. So, I was hoping if you can help us out (if it's not too much for you, of course). Can you? As I await your reply sir. :D --Juan BlancoReception Area 10:13, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

Should be fixed. When you want to change the color of text with CSS, you just use "color", not "font-color". ;) Cheers! ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 16:35, March 24, 2011 (UTC)
The Assassin's Creed Wiki thanks you for your help. If, by any chance, I can be of assistance to you, just let me know :D Thanks once again sir! --Juan BlancoReception Area 15:33, March 25, 2011 (UTC)
No problem - happy to help, and don't hesitate to ask for more in the future either! =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 17:31, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

Creating an infobox

I'm trying to create the template for infoboxes on my Wikia (, but I'm completely lost as to how to design it and where to even start; I've creating the Template:Infobox/Character page and I'm stuck at the editing screen as to what to put next. I want to create something like the character infobox on Narutopedia (something like this, but I have no idea how to create the details such as merged lines and categories. I'm stuck at the beginning of the editing screen. I could use some help, step-by-step, maybe? —Preceding unsigned comment added by FireStarr (talkcontribs) 15:38, May 6, 2011.
Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

The Naruto Wikia seems to use a custom-spun mix of anime hub and home-brewed templates for its character infobox; I really don't know how their system works at all. My suggestion would be to start by copying Template:Infobox character from here, and then gradually modifying it to do what you want it to. This will also let you learn more generally how templates work, and should teach you some CSS and HTML while you're at it. ;) One last thing, remember that the infobox on the Naruto wiki is only one way to do it; you may (and probably will, considering the complexity of the infobox on the Naruto wiki) find in experimenting on your wiki that some other method works better for you (and if you still need help with any particulars, feel free to ask ;) ). ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:01, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Conversation template

Hello sir, thanks for fixing the wiki link template at the Prototype wiki. I have another favor to ask, we have a lot of conversations from the game and I use these dialogue templates (somewhere upto 8). But these work only for convo between two people. Is there a way to make a dialogue template for conversation between three ppl? Because I used the : punctuation and it kind of changed the page format. Thank you.Vatsa 15:08, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think there's any really straightforward way to do so - in a conversation between two people, it's generally going to be a back-and-forth: A - B - A - ... But with a third person, it suddenly gets a lot more complex: A - B - C - A - ..., A - B - A - C - ..., A - B - C - B - ..., etc. A template could be made for that, but you'd have to specify the speaker before every line. Would that be fine (and if so, I need to know how many lines of dialog the template needs to support)? ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 16:26, June 4, 2011 (UTC)
Well it's usually A - B - C - B - ..... Speaker A, has a single line in most conversations, a few are 3 lines(A - B - C - B) and the highest I could find was 5 lines, (A - B - C - B - C - B) and the situations to the end of dialogues along with the source. Hope this isn't a lot of trouble. Vatsa 10:10, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
All right, how does w:c:prototype:Template:3-way dialog do you? I designed it to support anywhere from 3 to 7 lines of dialog, and it uses a "src" parameter for the discussion's source instead of another unnamed parameter. If you can point me to some sample conversations, I can add usage examples as well.
I could also write a more generic dialog template that would allow any number of speakers (within reason), speaking in any order, but you would have to specify the speaker for every line. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 17:35, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
Wow, you seriously work fast. I was able to find these two articles, w:c:prototype:Arthur Coleman and w:c:prototype:Walter Avery. The first speaker has a single line, the rest is between other two speakers. There is also an eight line convo, but same thing first speaker say's a single line, the rest of the convo is between two people. I can think of a few article the "generic dialog template" could be used. Hope this wasn't too much trouble and thank you for the help again :) . Vatsa 18:02, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
Nah, it wasn't too much trouble. ;) So is that a "yes" for wanting that more generic template? ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:10, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
Examples added. That template *really* doesn't like whitespace around the pipes, which is pretty damn weird - it shouldn't care one way or another (though maybe it has something to do with the list format used; I've never done much with definition lists in templates before). ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:23, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
Definite yes for the generic templates. Thank you. :) Vatsa 18:27, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

New templates

Hi! I'm an editor on One Piece Wiki, I'd like to signalize you these template: Template:Userstats and Template:Parent Tab Template and for the license templates we have merge the creative commons licenses and the GNU licenses in two templates: Template:CC-BY-SA and Template:GNU. If you think some of those are worth to be added here feel free to copy the code. Thanx! Leviathan_89 15:28, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

The licensing templates would probably need to be reviewed (in particular your version of {{CC-BY-SA}}, which may or may not partially overlap with our version of {{CC}}; Fandyllic would, I think, be the one to ask about that), but you should feel free to copy Template:Userstats and Template:Parent Tab Template here if you feel they'd be useful. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 17:56, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

Video Templates

Hello once again sir! It's me again, War Clown. This time, I represent the inFamous Wiki, and I need your professional help with a template. This one is featured in the wiki's main page, but there has been a problem. 3 of the videos are out of proportion with the others, namely (though not definite) the last 3 videos (Mission Creator, Beast is Coming, and Gamescom Trailer). An associate I was working with also doesn't know how to fix it, so I thought I'd turn to you. I don't really know the problem, the size code is the same as the others, yet they are way out of proportion. Can you please help out? Thank you for your time. --WarClown Dial-UpinFamous 12:42, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

This should fix it for you; the oversized videos didn't have a space between width="245px" and height="180px" (whitespace can be painfully easy to overlook sometimes =/ ). Cheers! ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 22:25, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

Bakugan template

Hello Dinoguy. I'm Kellyn, from Bakugan Wikia and i was wondering if the template was done, or where it is up to. :D Thnx The Demon Sweetie.50px 12:45, July 30, 2011 (UTC)

Hey Kellyn, sorry about the wait. I haven't been able to start on it yet, because I've had a lot of other stuff happening for the past few weeks (mostly in real life, but I've had a sizable buildup of stuff to go through here on Wikia as well, as a result). Depending on what happens IRL, I may not be able to get to it for another next week or so either. If you guys would rather find someone else to make the template (or try to do so yourselves) rather than waiting for my schedule to open up, that's fine by me, as long as you don't mind me having a look through the end result! ;) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:49, July 30, 2011 (UTC)
 :D We should be the one saying sorry for bothering you XD. It's okay if you don't have the time to make it. Although can i ask, what does Abce2 want the template to do exactly, hold cards? a display? Thnx again. The Demon Sweetie.50px 07:06, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
All right, I just wanted to be sure everyone on the Bakugan wiki wasn't getting pissed at me or anything. =D Basically, the template will end up working a lot like Yu-Gi-Oh! Wikia's CardTable2 template, which can be seen in action, for example, here or here (the Bakugan template shouldn't be nearly as complicated, though, based on what I've seen of the Bakugan card game). ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 23:00, August 1, 2011 (UTC)


Hi Philip

I just saw you have a template which says how many edits you have done on all wiki's this interested me. Could you tell me how it works and how to set up the template. Wildecoyote (talkcontribslogsblock log) 05:36, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Hello Wildecoyote, I assume you are talking about {{User edits}}, right? Just to be clear, I've only made a minor change to that template, so it's hardly "mine". ;)
To use it on a page, you just insert the code {{User edits}} on the page you want it to appear on. If the page's name isn't the name of the user that you're wanting to show the number of edits for, you have to add some to the code - for instance, to show how many edits you have, I would write {{User edits|Wildecoyote}} .
To use this template on other wikis, you have to copy it, {{Userbox}}, and {{Userbox/Section}} to the wiki in question, and it wouldn't hurt to grab their documentation (Template:User edits/doc, Template:Userbox/doc, and Template:Userbox/Section) at the same time.
If you have any more questions or need more help, please don't hesitate to ask! =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 05:57, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

I have copied all documents/templates as suggested. But it's not working for me. can you please have a look for me? --Wildecoyote (talkcontribslogsblock log) 06:31, August 20, 2011 (UTC)
It seems you're using Wikipedia's version of {{Userbox}}, which is incompatible with the version used here. This means that your copy of {{User edits}} will have to be changed to work properly with it. I can probably do it tomorrow for you if you can't do so yourself and there's no one else on the wiki that can help you with it. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 06:35, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, it does.
