Unregistered users cannot edit anymore.

On Thoughts List, there's been a bunch of IP addresses that just delete bits of the article and replace it with "Hello!".

Blocking the IP addresses has had no real effect, so I've disabled editing for unregistered users. Nothing else has been changed, you can still edit to your heart's content with a wiki account.

If anyone disagrees with this, this is the place to post comments/concerns/etc.

Portability of WP Templates

Hey there. Been working on some templates and am running into a brick wall.

Most of the Wikipedia core templates were re-written to LUA ~2 years ago. This wiki doesn't run Extension:Scribunto, which means no #invoke:, so templates such as {{mbox}} and the rest of its family ({{ambox}}, {{tmbox}}, {{fmbox}}, etc) are broken. WP editors seems to have been extremely fervent in their pursuit to replace every legacy style mbox-type template, and I can find almost none that a decently visually appealing to borrow code from. I was considering going back and refactoring an early 2014 version of Mbox to work here (pre-LUA switch), but boy is it looking like a ton more work than expected and I'll probably find a heap more template transclusions to fix before it's even partially functional.

tl;dr: Are there any plans to activate Scribunto on this wiki to enable modern WP templates to be ported here?

Edit: fixed links

Hey, sorry for the delayed reply but I just got back from work. I can definitely look into enabling (or maybe installing, I'll have to check) Scribunto. I still gotta run it past Tynan, but it sounds like a pretty solid idea to me.

Cool cool. If you need any additional info, just let me know. I've been researching it quite a bit and think I've got a good handle on it. I get email alerts both here and on forum PM's.

Questions for the Wiki

Icons are used in various place for many small things. I cannot figure out how to make them. If you someone could shed some light on this topic, that would be greatly appreciated.

Check out

Example: Steel 30

The code for that is:



  • The first parameter is always 'icon' (it's the name of the template).
  • The second parameter is what you want the icon to be. The page shows all the available ones like metal, silver, potatoes, etc.
  • The third parameter lets you display an amount after the icon (it's optional).
  • The fourth parameter is also optional, but lets you edit the size (in pixels).

Here's an example with the size parameter. Silver 250

And the code:

Much appreciated, I have now added the few icons that were missing and put them where they needed to be, as far as I am aware.

Duplicate pages

Throw me a message here if you mark pages for deletion or have questions about deleting duplicate/spam/etc stuff from the wiki.

Zesty (talk)13:16, 4 March 2015

Do we really need all of the extra /en pages? If we do, we should at least bring them up to scratch with the regular pages. If not, we should mark all of them for deletion.

Die4doom (talk)05:11, 20 August 2014

No we don't need them, they're remnants of the translation plugin which we don't use anymore.

Feel free to mark them for deletion though, just make sure that you copy stuff over from them if the page is better than its non-en counter part.

You should REALLY calm down now

Like seriously. Stop doing that. THE COMMUNITY decided to do a new template and use it. YOU decided to fix something totally useless now.

It's my sandbox. Leave it alone. I'm not doing anything else.

Zesty (talk)00:03, 19 August 2014

You're doing something in your sandbox that is totally USELESS, what's the point ?

DarkGhost (talk)00:04, 19 August 2014


It's my sandbox. It's for testing, not everything is used there. You can stop worrying about it.

Please leave it alone.
