Re: StringFunctions[edit]

  • Haha whoops :D It didn't show up on Special:Version, so I just assumed that was the problem with the template. I guess I should have tested a more basic function before requesting it NovaHawk 18:04, 9 October 2013 (EDT)
    • (fixed the template- I forgot the default date format was arranged differently on here :P) NovaHawk 18:40, 9 October 2013 (EDT)
      • Also I don't suppose you found out what that problem with the news report namespace was did you (how it won't do anything with smw even though the namespace has been enabled)? NovaHawk 18:40, 9 October 2013 (EDT)


You should probably just make it a global bot. --ToaMeiko (talk) 16:54, 1 November 2013 (EDT)

#b87b1e / D89b3e

Hey NXT, I've run into a bit of a coding problem (surprise! :P). I won't bug you with the specifics since you're probably busy building/fixing some thing way too complex for me to understand, basically I'm trying to get alternating rows working for the new infobox working. I can't use tr:nth-child stuff on common.css, because it needs the background:{{Background}} stuff you made for the original infobox, which only works inline (and likewise for common.js). So I was just wondering if you knew whether there was a way to code a template to get the row number of a table in an infobox? I don't think there is, but I just thought I'd see anyway. Thanks :) NovaHawk 07:53, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Hmm, this is a certainly tricky one, because of the fact that some rows will not be filled in for all articles. I'll have a think. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
I haven't looked at the code and wouldn't know if this would work, so I'm speaking hypothetically, but could you "count" the number of rows in use somehow, like if |theme= has content, that becomes 1, |year has nothing so is skipped, |minifigures=3, so that becomes 2, etc. Then you could assign all odds as one colour, all evens as another. This sounds like something that would work more with a programming language than web-code though. CJC95 (talk) 16:41, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
Yeah. The easy way is to do it in javascript, however, we shouldn't really... A markup version, as CJC describes, would be incredibly complex once you have 10 rows in a table, though it would be possible. I haven't had any eureka ideas... UltrasonicNXT (talk)
Oh, I never thought of it like the way CJC's describing, it'll be a lot of if statements, but I could work on that sometime. And yeah, I was trying to avoid JS, but I looked into it when I couldn't see any other way, but then I realised I had no idea how to put
tr:nth-child (even){

tr:nth-child (odd){
into JS without again having problems with actually getting the background colour required. Anyway, I'll get started on that big long template as soon as I can, thanks CJC :) NovaHawk 22:14, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
I know! We can embed that CSS into the template page, exactly as you put it there! There's a few ways of embedding CSS, and if we haven't got any (though I think we have) there's loads of extensions we could install. (if you wanted to to it JS, you'd have to give each element in the infobox both colour variants in a -data attribute, then the JS would go down the cells, picking either the first or second colour to use. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
Ooh, that'd be great :) I was dreading coding that template, if this is possible, it'd look much better as well. The only extension I can see that mentions CSS in Special:Version is the Gadgets extension NovaHawk 22:44, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm guessing NewPageCSS is the extension we need? NovaHawk 22:46, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
CSS looks a little better documented, but either would do. I'll install one later. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
That one looks good too- I only had a quick look at it before and only saw the top two examples. NovaHawk 21:59, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
Hmmm. Either way, I'd prefer not to allow anyone to add custom CSS whereever they like, but it's not as simple as just allowing it only in the template namespace, or only on specific pages, because then it won't transclude properly. I'm going to have to give it some more thought.
I was just thinking- couldn't we use the abuse filter to stop this? NovaHawk 01:05, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
AbuseFilter created. It seems to work fine, and restricts adding the text "{{#css:" to admins only, but I don't have much experience with AbuseFilters, I think I've only ever made one other... NovaHawk 01:46, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
Good thinking, I didn't think of that. Do you want to implement it into {{Infobox}} or shall I? UltrasonicNXT (talk)
As far as I can tell, {{Infobox/new}} should now be ready to go once the extension's installed NovaHawk 21:43, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Re: Import[edit]

  • Well, I've heard of better success stories :D No worries with not having the most recent version- the only really significant thing in the last 6 days I can remember is that Meiko made a template for the news reports which I added a bit of stuff to, but I can pretty easily rebuild that now I know how it's done (if Meiko doesn't beat me to rebuilding it first). So do you know if it's even possible to do an import, or are we going to have to do it all manually or something? NovaHawk 11:56, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
    • It's possible. I just don't think it's a good idea to use Wikia's database dumps because every time I've used one, it had the same problem as we faced. I honestly think it'd be better done like images were done, where a bot would add a category to every page, Special:Export it, and then import it with importDump.php. Special:Export has never had any problems for me, so I think it would be a safer bet. Also, Wikia's database dumps have a bunch of namespaces that don't even exist here, such as User_blog_comment for every comment on a blog, and Thread for every forum thread that's been created. --ToaMeiko (talk) 01:17, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
      • Well either way, importDump.php will not work, as I have said before, mwdumper is the only way to import a large wiki. UltrasonicNXT (talk)


  • Hi NXT, I was just changing {{comments}} over from NUMBEROFCOMMENTS to NUMBEROFCOMMENTSPAGE when I noticed this page says there are 3 comments when there were 4 (now 5). I was just wondering if you would mind checking the template to see if I did it wrong? (or maybe it's just a caching thing and hasn't updated :S) Thanks! NovaHawk 05:39, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
    • Hmm, that's odd. I've changed {{NUMBEROFCOMMENTSPAGE:{{FULLPAGENAME}}}} to {{NUMBEROFCOMMENTSPAGE}}}, as the latter should get the number of comments for the current page automatically, to see if that would make a difference, but it doesn't look like it. Ah, of course, I remember, it's the cache. I set the NUMBEROFCOMMENTSPAGE cache to last for 24 hours, so evidently it hasn't cleared yet. ?action=purge doesn't seem to clear it either. Do you think the cache should be reduced? UltrasonicNXT (talk)
      • Your usage was fine :) (I only made that change because it makes the code look prettier ;) ) UltrasonicNXT (talk)
      • Ah, that would explain it :) Yeah, personally I'd say 24 hrs is a bit high- most of the time for news articles at least, most of the comments we got on articles were within 24 hrs of the article being published, so the number may be a little misleading... I'd be thinking in the range of about an hour (or less), but I don't know how that'd affect performance/loading times NovaHawk 00:36, 31 December 2013 (UTC)


Hey, do you know when MediaWikiChat will be added to, or has it already been added and I've missed it? --ToaMeiko (talk) 21:50, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Well I, probably like you, am bored of waiting, so I'm going to approve the 'Preparation of adding to TWN' patch on gerrit, and hopefully this will encourage Siebrand/whoever to add it. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
That's been merged, if nothing happens in a few days I will bug someone about it :) UltrasonicNXT (talk)

Another thing, I saw people complaining about how the chat is in a wiki page and whatnot and how it loses space. Possible suggestion: Remove the left and right sidebar on Refreshed for Special:Chat so the chat page is the full width of the window. That way they still have user navigation and whatnot. Such a thing could either be a CSS gadget in user preferences or something done in MediaWiki:Refreshed.css/MediaWiki:Global.css. --ToaMeiko (talk) 20:20, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I talked with Drew earlier today about this. I did contemplate doing exactly what you describe. However, I am not too keen to implement something like this, as it would not be compatible with other skins, and I want to keep chat fully skin compatible, which it is at the moment. I think I may work on a fullscreen version, similar to wikia.s though. (As a note, I would much prefer to keep it as you describe and I was thinking, but I have not found a reliable, skin-compatible way to do this.) UltrasonicNXT (talk)
We'd be able to have it in local CSS, I'd think. I could play around with it. --ToaMeiko (talk) 22:20, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I see what you've done at dev, that's nice. We could do with removing the footer though. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
I think that should stay-- the copyright still applies, as do the policies in the footer... --ToaMeiko (talk) 19:49, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
Yeah but it adds a pointless scrollbar, and is really not needed. Removing it would do no harm. If you really think it's needed, add a 'show footer' button or something, but it would really improve the UX to remove it... UltrasonicNXT (talk)

Yeah, would be good. Completely forgot about the bots. :P Vasko (talk) 19:34, 18 January 2014 (UTC)


  • Hmm, yeah I've noticed some weird behaviour with SMW a couple of hours ago. For example (I don't know if your bot will get to it before you can see it) 10215 Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter has {{Rating|2}}, which assigns [[ArticleRating::2]], but it's coming out as a link to 2 (Disambiguation) (because 2 redirects there). Also, there's one Date working, Property:NewsDate, which was also made a long time ago. But all the other properties aren't even showing up as a Page datatype (the default one). (But that's good to know about String now being an alias of Text, it wasn't like that before, I'll have to remember to use Text in future)
    • So, according to SMW Testing, stuff is behaving as it should- [[ArticleRating::2]] results in "2" (no link, so it's not defaulting to Page). But when you go to Special:Browse/SMW_Testing, it still shows a link to 2 (Disambiguation) instead of just a plain text 2... basically, to summarise, I have no clue as to what's going on :P I'll have a look around, see if there are any bugs happening in relation to the more recent SMW updates. NovaHawk 11:17, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
      • (copy-pasted from a while ago, the site was down so this may not be relevant anymore) 1.22 may fix it, from what I can tell, there was a related commit in 1.22.1 which may have fixed this bug or one similar to it-
        • That seems to have done it- I just manually refreshed Property:ArticleRating, and it now shows up in text datatype :) NovaHawk 22:45, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, sorry about that. Didn't see that the little box was checked. Vasko (talk) 15:30, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Messages NS[edit]

  • Hi NXT, I was just wondering if it would be possible for you to import the MediaWiki namespace? I just noticed that it hasn't been imported. If it takes too long to set up a script, don't worry, I'm happy to just import it manually, it doesn't have too many pages NovaHawk 10:26, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
    • You should manually do it. With the amount of custom CSS and JavaScript that's Wikia-specific, importing the interface namespace would surely break things. --ToaMeiko (talk) 16:30, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
    • I was mainly thinking about the createplates- [1] and Mediawiki:Newarticletext. As you and Meiko both said, there's a lot of pages there useless to us, I was just going to delete them when they were imported, but apart from the createplates, I can't even see anything else useful to us anyway NovaHawk 21:15, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Year Pages[edit]

You know where that template we/you once worked on that had tabs for year pages is? (as in, what its called?) CJC95 (talk) 12:26, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Yeah. I'll search Brickia for it sometime. CJC95 (talk) 17:57, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
I know, its used Extension:Tabber. CJC95 (talk) 13:50, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Using year set, is there any reason that the name is repeated, i.e.:

{{YearSet|G|21050 Architecture Studio|Architecture Studio}} As far as I can tell, it still works fine with just the second field, yet the examples use the third. CJC95 (talk) 18:07, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

  • I get a string error over at Template:2014/Table. (Also, half the time when I save the page I get the website as being offline for a while S: ) CJC95 (talk) 21:07, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
    • String exceeds 10 000 char limit? Jesus, what are you doing? (That will be the server struggling to cope, Lcawte is meant to be doing something about it...) UltrasonicNXT (talk)


I think that I had a .png image as my avatar before, but it's .jpg now. I don't know if that contradicts what you said though. :P Berrybrick (talk) 19:45, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Hey NXT. I saw that GameGear360 created a few pages, which I would gladly manually import with their whole histories, but I think that you've said your bot can import them, so can you please do that for me? Thanks, Vasko (talk) 15:03, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

I would do, but it looks like CJC has beaten me to it! UltrasonicNXT (talk)

Switch templates[edit]

None of the switch templates (e.g. SWsets, Castlesets, Citysets) work. :S CJC95 (talk) 23:19, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Hmm, that's odd. I could really do with converting them to the new template thingy though, so maybe I'll do that. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
Ah, we need to remove the 'toc' class of the table on them. UltrasonicNXT (talk)

Pages not loading with SMW[edit]

  • Hi NXT, while trying to get the year stuff working again (from CJC's talk page), I came across this help page, would you be able to possibly try adding that to the LocalSettings.php file (unless you think it'll cause other problems of course). Or do you think it'd be better to just work on another way instead? Thanks :) NovaHawk 23:48, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Done :) UltrasonicNXT (talk)
Thanks :) But it doesn't look like it worked :( You don't think boosting it to 100 would help do you? (If it's doing nothing at 64, I doubt it would) NovaHawk 22:46, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Er, probably not :/ Anything above the PHP limit on the server is pointless, and the page does say getting up to 100 is pointless... I do need to sort something about those pages though, please bug me about it if I forget! UltrasonicNXT (talk)
Ok, I'll just put a temporary manual fix in for 2014 for now, let me know if there's anything I can do to help :) NovaHawk 08:07, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

I just tried to add in a placeholder list, not even considering it wouldn't work:

{{ImagePortalYear/Redesign|title=10241 Maersk Line Triple-E|image=10241_alt1.jpg}}
{{ImagePortalYear/Redesign|title=10243 Parisian Restaurant|image=10243_alt1.jpg}}
{{ImagePortalYear/Redesign|title=10521 Baby Calf|image=10521_alt1.png}}
{{ImagePortalYear/Redesign|title=10522 Farm Animals|image=10522-box.jpg}}
{{ImagePortalYear/Redesign|title=10524 Farm Tractor|image=10524_1.jpg}}
{{ImagePortalYear/Redesign|title=10525 Big Farm|image=}}
{{ImagePortalYear/Redesign|title=10526 Peter Pan's Visit|image=}}
etc.. you get the idea

but I'm getting the same problem- I get hit by a blank page and nothing saves. As you can see, there's nothing Semantic about the template. So basically confirming what you already know- the problem doesn't seem to be loaclised to SMW, it's moreso just a "large page" thing :S (oh, and let me know if I start bugging you too much :P But that's all the testing I can think of doing anyway) NovaHawk 08:32, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Ooh cor that is odd. (Gives me a tad of confidence in SMW though). I'll have to ask Lewis. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
Yeah, I was devasted that after all this time, SMW's finally let me down, I'm happy that's not the case after all :) NovaHawk 22:31, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Chat "Edit" Message[edit]

While I support the message, it gets annoying when you have to dismiss it six times per session or whatever, whether or not you actually heed it. :P Is there a way where it could maybe be altered to appear a little less often after the first time, or only a certain number of times per session, or something like this? BrickfilmNut (talk) 01:22, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Yeah sure, I've updated it so it'll be 15, then a gap of 25, then 35, and so on :) UltrasonicNXT (talk)
Great! Thanks. BrickfilmNut (talk) 17:22, 27 February 2014 (UTC)


Hey Ultrasonic! I saw a cool script you made for chat that pops up a message after a certain amount of messages submitted that suggests to edit some pages at the wiki. I thought it was really useful and I was wondering if I could use the script at the LEGO CUUSOO Wiki? Thanks, Codyn329 (talk) 01:31, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Chat on a private wiki[edit]

Hello! Thanks for such a wonderful chat which can even keep a wikia addict to a private wiki. I recently installed it to our new private wiki as a final move from Microwiki (wikia). But problem is messages aren't displaying when you type. Neighter personal messages are working nor private. Strange thing is logs are working- Just not displaying chat on the screen! I had seen this problem before here too but now chat seem to work here. What might be the cause of the problem? Aryavart (talk) 12:42, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Have you set up the right databases for MediaWikiChat? --ToaMeiko (talk) 14:19, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes I have followed all the instructions on Extension:MediaWikiChat page. I have used update.php script to create databases. I downloaded MediaWikiChat, moved it to extensions then added require_once( "$IP/extensions/MediaWikiChat/MediaWikiChat.php" ); to the LocalSettings.php and finally ran the update.php script. Was that all we need to do? Or there are some more steps? Aryavart (talk) 17:29, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Infobox colour glitch and images[edit]

  • Hi NXT, I just saw your nom for Pharaoh's Quest and remembered seeing a Pharoah's Quest colour scheme when I was cleaning up some stuff recently. But the articles are still showing up with the default colours. I'm wondering if you know why it's not working, I'm thinking it's to do with the apostrophe, but I don't know how to fix it :S And at the above message (just in case you haven't figured it out), the broken images with no extension on the end are Wikia video links (on the import, the poster image got imported with the same name but with a .jpeg on the end) NovaHawk 10:15, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
    • I'll look into the colours. Yeah, the videos are really screwing up trying to fix the broken file links... Sometimes videos seem to get uploaded as images, and then half the wikia images, as well as videos don't even have file extensions! I found an image wikia thought was valid, and it's file extension was .ipg! UltrasonicNXT (talk)
    • Yeah, I thought it was odd Pharaoh's Quest didn't have one. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
      • Fixed - just removed the apostrophe, that did the trick. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
        • Thanks, I'll try to remember that for any other themes with weird characters :) NovaHawk 09:51, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Re: User:UltrasonicNXT/videogame[edit]

  • I was wondering what you were working on when I saw it in the RC :P It looks great to me, I never liked the big gaps due to the differing lengths of the infoboxes. However, the one thing I do wonder about it the readability, since there aren't uniform rows, I wonder whether someone could skip over smaller infoboxes surrounded by larger ones (such as The Joker). But I still think it's an improvement over the current layout NovaHawk 09:51, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
  • (stalk) Per Nova. Maybe it doesn't help that its been done on a page where we lack most of the info, but then even on pages with all the info, I imagine the differences in heights will be slight but noticeable, but not that useful (I.e., if all the info is there, but character A has 1 more ability than Character B, then everything underneath has a single lines difference in heights and that just looks like we haven't formatted it properly) (I realise that my explaining here is terrible) CJC95 (talk) 10:33, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
    • So that's a no? :P I'll try and find a page with more info and do it with that. (I don't think they will ever really line up, with the text as you say, but also lots of the images are different sizes. (And if they did, we wouldn't need this :P)) UltrasonicNXT (talk)
    • A forum probably wouldn't hurt, although with forum activity what it is these days, it's likely we'll only get at most 2 more opinions NovaHawk 00:47, 12 June 2014 (UTC)


  • Do we really need 3999 entries there? I can't imagine we'd need more than a few hundred, and I'm just wondering if evaluating all those if statements all the time is what's causing the RAM problem with the template... NovaHawk 00:34, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
    • Oh, and refresh/purge no longer seems to work how it used to. Instead of refreshing all the SMW values, it just removes them all, and you have to go and hit edit then save to get them all back (at least that's what's happening for me) NovaHawk 00:38, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
      • Good point about the parameters, I'll try removing some. No clue about the purging though, that sounds very odd, I'll have a look. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
      • Why would I have ever given it that many parameters... UltrasonicNXT (talk)
  • The purging shouldn't be too big a deal, but it's kinda weird :S I don't suppose updating the SMW extension would help would it? (Obviously I've got no clue why it stopped working, it's the only thing I can think of :) ) And how did you even make 3999 parameters? That must have taken ages :D Also, I probably won't be around to update Saturday/Sunday on the soccer blog (I might, though, not sure yet), so if I'm away feel free to update it and take all the goals you need :) NovaHawk 10:56, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Copy-pasted message to any admins still around[edit]

I'm stuck on a coding thing again :P[edit]

  • Hey NXT, I'm trying to implement a thing in the infobox as discussed on one of the recent forums. I'm not sure if you've read it, but basically, if a user is logged in and hasn't made a review of a set, a "[Submit a review]" link should show up, but if they've already made a review, it should say "[View my review]". The only thing I can't figure out how to do is detect if the user has made a review, because it involves calling on $wgUserName from JS, so obviously {{#ifeq:{{#ask:[[ReviewOf::{{PAGENAMEE}}]] [[ReviewByR::{{USERNAME}}]]|?ReviewByR|format=count}}|0|[Submit a review]|[View my review]}} and {{#ifexist:Review:{{PAGENAME}}/{{USERNAME}}|[View my review]|[Submit a review]}} don't work... just wondering if you have any ideas of the top of your head :) NovaHawk 05:27, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Yeah, I figured pure JS would be the only way to do it, and even if I could figure out the API, I thought it'd be a pretty expensive call anyway and put more strain on the server for no real reason. Doesn't matter, I'll just change the wording, thanks anyway :) NovaHawk 10:54, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Deep Sea background[edit]

  • Hi NXT, I just noticed you were making a few changes to Deep Sea, and the background's no longer working- the CSS seems to be pointing to /images/studs-tile-light.png, but that's not found. I tried deepsea/images/studs-tile-light.png and Deepsea/deepsea/images/studs-tile-light.png just because of where it's stored on GitHub, but I had to luck with those either :S Just wondering if you knew where the image was actually stored? :) NovaHawk 06:42, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Hey, I was wondering if it's possible to have a bot to go through articles and rename according to certain information?

The studs in Custom's Deepsea is gone due to your changes of how Deepsea works. Can you fix that? Also, can you help change my Meta personal Deepsea.css? Basically, I want it to look like Brickipedia but with a darker shade of blue. ( Studs-tile.png for it. ) --Knight

Okay, I'll get an admin to apply the fix. UltrasonicNXT (talk)

Will you be able to make coding for my personal .css for Meta that I described above? --Knight

More CSS stuff![edit]

  • Sorry if I'm bugging you with too many requests lately :P If you have the time, would you mind changing the default background colour of Refreshed to #0B87B9? (There's a forum about it here, some people were complaining the one in the demo was too bright, so I put it at 3/4 strength instead). I would do it myself with the MediaWiki css, but I'm guessing there's something in the code itself somewhere where you can just change it and it fixes the highlight colours for the nav as well?

    I've yet to work out how to change the nav too - it really ruins my pink reviews skin. CJC95 (talk) 14:14, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
    Ok, no clue how the code works, but I'll have a look. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
  • Ok thanks for checking it out, I'll get on to adding it then :) NovaHawk 02:52, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
    • I think I got nearly everything, except I think there's a JavaScript function interfering somewhere- when you click on a menu, then move the mouse off the menu so you're not hovering over anything, it goes back to the dark blue :S I've had a look through the css and js files I can find, but didn't come across anything useful, you wouldn't know where that's located would you? :) I could probably write something into MediaWiki:Refreshed.js, but I figured that'd be a bad idea :S NovaHawk 03:15, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
      • Sorry, I missed a few things when I copied it over from my CSS to the main one :) Should be all fixed now, although the main background colour isn't showing up for me. I'm guessing it's cached on the site because I blanked all the Mediawiki CSS then emptied my cache, but nothing changed, but the menu bit is working NovaHawk 23:00, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Article Feedback (cont.)[edit]

Thanks for all the help with this so far, but I still can't get a note on AF, can you check that? Maybe it's just an issue for me now, so try adding one yourself too. BrikkyyTalk 09:06, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Chat Autoscroll[edit]

Hey, Meiko motioned for me to talk to you about autoscroll not working on chat.


Do you know what the status is on it working?

Thank you in advance.

Still not working for me --ToaMeiko (talk) 01:33, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

These are the errors I've been getting, don't know if that helps:

TypeError: 'null' is not an object (evaluating '')
ReferenceError: Can't find variable: Notification          load.php:6
TypeError: 'undefined' is not an object (evaluating 'data.users')          load.php:4

It could just be my outdated browser and all that could unrelated to autoscrolling though :P NovaHawk 01:30, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Odd, I couldn't find any errors in the console Codyn329 (talk) 01:43, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Comments - permanent link[edit]

Hello there, Ultrasonic.

Here are the images of the issues I've been telling you about - the permanent link cycling through languages: --G4rfield (talk) 19:59, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Moving servers[edit]

  • Hey NXT, I was just wondering if you'd mind commenting on this if you get the time, I was just wondering how hard you'd think it would be to move/any potential downfalls or problems that we may encounter that may not have been considered, and basically just whether you think it's a good idea in general. Thanks :) NovaHawk 06:49, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
    • Thanks very much for doing that, and good to see you around :) NovaHawk 22:28, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Re:Christmas time[edit]

  • Hi NXT, great to hear from you! umm, I can't really think of anything site-related that's been going on lately (apart from some database errors due to lack of memory, but they've dropped off a bit in the last couple of days). Template-wise I think the only big change in the last few months is tabbed navboxes, which is nothing major :) I was meaning to take a look at your Template:Advent Calendar and maybe try and set it up so it can show the current day's advent calendar items on the main page (but hidden so you can click to reveal it in case you don't want to know), but I haven't been able to be around as much as usual in the last month or two and never got around to it. I figured I'd start on that after Christmas since it's too late to do this year's. SamanthaNguyen's also been looking at making some changes to various extensions if you wanted to take a look at those. And apparently we're considering a move to ShoutWiki (which you've probably seen since it's in the sitenotice, I just saw it when I logged on a few minutes ago :P)- I don't know if you've done much on ShoutWiki but it'd always be good to hear what you think :) If you have any ideas for any improvements, let me know or the forum's always there, and let me know if I can help out with anything if you make/change anything- I may not be around a whole lot for the next week but I'll check in as much as I can. Anyway, looking forward to seeing you around over the next few weeks :) NovaHawk 13:17, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
