So, I was thinking of some proposals that could be done since it is the beginning of the year. One proposal is the protection of content and prevention of anything done on the wiki from unregistered users. I felt the need of that to happen because many admins of larger wikis prefer for that to happen which is why I think we should too. But, I really don't like the thought of stopping others from contributing to our wiki but it is recommended to be done. One other thing is the quiz. So, we already have someone making a quiz for us which we all must appreciate, but I found wikis that have quizzes that are literally on their wiki and they all look pretty official. Here's an example from the Harry Potter Wiki. http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/PlayQuiz:Harry_Potter_Quiz So if you can, please reply as soon as possible. Thanks.
UGHHH I GOT 60% ON THE QUIZ WHWT IS THIS LIFE I JUST FINSIHED HARRY POTTER BARELY A MONTH AGO- oh this is the wrong to for the ramble hehe HUFFLEPUFF ALL THE WAY HERE!! XDEE ANYWHOOOO... Where to start replying...
An official looking quiz would be nice! I just don't know how I would do that. :P Maybe we could do different types of quizzes too, like different levels of difficulty for "How Much Do You Know About Frozen", or what Frozen character are you most like. We don't have to have a lot of quizzes, but yeah.
As for unregistered users... I don't know. I mean, this wiki isn't the most popular place in the world in comparison to the Disney Wiki or HP Wiki, so something like that would be unnecessary if we just watch out. Then again, there have been a few instances where there has been vandalism, and it was usually done on a large scale. I don't know, really, best to discuss it with the others. :)
Well, We're planning on making one quiz. We give the questions and answers and all that mumbo-jumbo for the Wikia staff to take care of and it takes pretty long. So, I don't think we will be able to make multiple quizzes.
Well apparently, the unregistered users block was already made on our wiki so there really is no need for discussion since that proposal was already made, which Dragon has told me a little while ago. -__-
Hey so with this quiz thing, Wikia does not do the thing where wikis request for a PlayQuiz (I think anymore) so we cannot do the fancy quiz thing. But thankfully, I managed to try to make a quiz and we held onto Animal98's quiz so here is what I have in store. Go to my sandbox to see the quiz.
So in line with the whole Wiki rewriting, I've finally decided to craft a new infobox so that we differentiate ourselves further from Disney Wiki. The template can be found at Template:Test, and an example of the infobox on a page can be found at my sandbox. Let me know if I can improve anything before we go for a wider release.
Hmm, nothing I think off the top of my head at the moment, but I'll let you know if I have a sudden suggestion. :P (AHHH OMB I LOVE YOUR AVIE TOO!!!) It definitely has a lot less info than Disney's which is completely all right with me, it offers a great place to glance over some things.
Ooh! I just had an idea. I know the idea is to have an INFObox, but maybe at the bottom or something there could be a little section with an interesting "Did You Know" fact...? Might give a fun little bit of info near the top of the article for those people just skimming through the wiki. :P It's just an idea, but yeah. Not so important though. XDEE
But still, one thing. The color scheme of it still looks so similar to Disney's. Any way we could still make it different? :P I'm content with the Infobox the way it is now, I know you must've worked hard on that. :P
Heh, I thought it was about time for an avatar change xD. And yes, I thought it was important to streamline the information, especially since our Wiki looks at things more from an in-universe perspective.
I can put in an extra parameter for a "did you know", but the problem with doing that is twofold: 1) We already have a Trivia section. 2) Unless we're going to fit all the Trivia, people might be tempted to keep adding to just the infobox until it becomes really cluttery. It's one of the reasons Disney Wiki's "appearance", "personality", and "likes/dislikes" parameters are essentially useless.
For the color scheme, I can make an alteration, but I'd prefer not to. It matches the Wiki well and it's different enough from the one Disney Wiki because the latter uses three different colors while we have a more uniform scheme. Additionally, ours is a little darker.
Thanks for your input though Dani :). I'll go ahead and roll out the new infobox since we have three Admins supporting it, but I can make more changes should the need arise ^^
I redirect you to this message Dani. I've made the infobox more different from Disney Wiki's, and now Bella and I just wanted to run a few color schemes by you. At my sandbox you will find the two color schemes. You are free to suggest your own as well :)
I'm really sorry that I have been inactive. Many things such as school has been interfering with me coming onto the wiki. I had to do semester exams and I'm finally on break which means I might be free to help. I hope each and every one of you have been doing well on the wiki and have been able to keep it in shape.
One thing. I was hoping we could revamp the wiki for Christmas even though there's 3 days left but I'd still love to bring some Christmas spirit here for the users. I'm asking everyone this to ask for approval until we do anything so what do you think? Reply as soon as possible and again, thank you for being here helping the wiki!
...OHHH so I HAVE been getting messages on my wall, it's just that the emails went to spam... Sorry for the late reply. XDEE Too bad we couldn't do anything for Christmas... My break was super busy but school's starting again so I'll have more time for the wiki. XDEE
I'm writing because I would like your input in the thread that I have highlighted. Our Wiki editing policies are almost non-existent so I took the liberty of formally drafting some up but it is far from complete. Even so, what is currently present will require quite an overhaul on articles.
I didn't want to message you about this since you could be busy but I've noticed you and the other Admins have logged in since the thread was posted and no feedback whatsoever has been given. As a result, I've decided to actively reach out. If you are busy of course, then no worries but do note your input as an Administrator would be extremely helpful :)
