Need Help?

Hey, I spent alot of time on the network Wikia, with lots of experience in Wiki Markup, and templates. I was wondering if you needed any help on the wiki, with content and/or templates. --Tama63 08:55, 22 August 2012 (PDT)

CraftBook needs work content-wise, and I'd like to add multilingual support to the wiki (via templates, since MediaWiki is currently severely lacking in proper multi-language support). I also need to defeat all the uses of Title Case around the wiki that is driving me nuts. --Sk89q (talk) 09:00, 22 August 2012 (PDT)
  • Ill get a mediawiki bot up, so I can index the pages and go through them
  • what languages exactly?I can see if I can pull in people to help - Soome alt suggestions [1] , [2]
  • What areas of CraftBook? --Tama63 09:20, 22 August 2012 (PDT)
I don't know, but I know there are definitely a lot of German-speaking users for one. This might be an indication of languages to support. We won't be the one translating though (I assume), so we primarily need to just set up the framework. I've considered those extensions, and I'll probably install them later. As for CraftBook, a lot of the pages came from a CraftBook-dedicated wiki but I decided it was better to merge it into this wiki, so several months back, I wrote a bot to copy over articles, templates, and files and relink everything, but there are still issues (some broken templates, etc.). Besides that, the pages are simply not very uniform, and a lot of the pages are just 'outdated,' a throwback from the old CraftBook days when it was for hMod. --Sk89q (talk) 09:37, 22 August 2012 (PDT)
Special:SpecialPages Maintenance reports seem to be empty,making this harder --Tama (talk) 10:10, 22 August 2012 (PDT)
Also Maybe I just an iframe on Project:IRC for the browser client? --Tama (talk) 10:13, 22 August 2012 (PDT)
I've fixed maintenance reports being empty. I have some plans on IRC, but not as a popup. --Sk89q (talk) 13:26, 22 August 2012 (PDT)

Clean Up

Could you run a bot to template wikicode (eg. {{example}} ) that link to templates on this list Special:WantedTemplates, additionally I would like to request permissions for moving, renaming and deleting files/pages.So clean-up the wiki (CraftBook clean-up : images (alot are unused/named wrong), unneeded pages--Tama (talk) 23:18, 22 August 2012 (PDT)

It is probably quick to just remove them manually (with proper use of middle click) since there aren't so many. I can give you those privileges tomorrow. --Sk89q (talk) 10:58, 23 August 2012 (PDT)
