The policy links in Template:Mainpage/Welcome aren't helpful to new users coming to the wiki for the first time. These links are better suited for the "How to Contribute?" section in Template:Mainpage/Sidebar. Suggestion: Move the links to the Sidebar template.
Let me know if you're good with these and I can make the changes, or if you wanna can make the changes yourself.
I can definitely agree about deleting slider template, as it's also troublesome to keep up to date with game news, however I'd like to find some sort of substitute, like a monthly banner or something to have this one rectangular graphic box in between Welcome and Content sections of main page that would somehow indicate that our wiki provides fresh information and is up to date with news.
As for project and policy links, I'd like to leave them in Welcome section but also add some of these links to How to contribute section. I think that they really fit in that Welcome box as they just like the rest of its content are meta to the wiki itself.
Honestly, the "Events" section on the Main Page fulfills the purpose already. You also have the ability to send out announcements through https://pokemongo.fandom.com/announcements which will appear in the notifications of all users who have been active on here in the last 90 days, see Help:Announcements for more information.
As for the project and policy links, I would rather make no change than to add those links to the How to contribute section. We can leave them in the Welcome box for sure, but that How to contribute section already has most of them and I'd rather not add duplicate or triplicate links.
I think we could do a bit of cleaning up on the design of the Events section in general. It's a good start so far, but it's quite a heavy list. We also have to consider the issue with adding images is that not every event will have an image to add. COVID-19 is the biggest example.
I've been a contributor to this wiki in several ways I can. Currently, I'm working on clean-up and standardizing Events pages as you may notice.
I changed some things on Pikachu Outbreak article that didn't pleased the User:Someone456 user. That is not the first time that this happened. It's ok if he didn't agree with my editions, and revert them. But it is not ok to use vulgar/bad languages as "braindead" or to be rude as he has been several times using 'Summary' part of articles.
I lost a son to car crash that stayed in brain dead state for several weeks.
I'm saying that based on this wiki's policy:
Help:Assume good faith says that to handle disagreements we should use talk pages, comments, or walls to explain your point of view, and invite others to do the same, not summary of editions on articles.
Help:Assume good faith clearly states that editors should assume every contribution is made with good intentions, and fellow contributors are allies, not enemies. If editors disagree with an edit, they should approach the contributor via the comments or personal messages in a polite and civilized manner. Intimidating behavior is not tolerated at any time.
Also, Pokémon_GO_Wiki:Banning_Policy states that administrators are given the task to moderate and ban any users who violate any rules stated in the policies which seems the case here. Also, this page talks about one warning to registered users.
Finally I will cite Help:Assume good faithJust remember that everyone you deal with has feelings, and everyone can help you build the community that you love if he or she can be shown that their work is noticed and valued, as well as how they can improve wherever needed.
I just want to contribute in a fun way following this wiki policy. I don't think that can continue to happen if we tolerate this kind of beavior.
First of all I am incredibly surprised about the Someone456's behaviour and I have no idea what to say else than I'm very sorry about this. I'm also very sorry for the accident that happened to your son. It's terrible that you had to mention this as it might be hard for you to talk about it as I assume.
I've looked up a little bit to Recent Changes as I unfortunately do not have time now for thorough research on this (I'm moving in few days, so my wiki activity might be decreased as well). I've seen this sort of misbehaviour with a direct insult just once there, nonetheless I totally agree that is in fact unprecedented and should have never happened.
I can agree with Someone456 about the Pikachu Outbreak article that is kind of better and more informative way to keep the information in sections rather than in table (even if this don't look as sleek and fancy). However, I cannot stay in defence of Someone456's behaviour and the fact that previous version of article may or may not be better does not in any way justify that insult. My only guess, as to why would that have taken place is that he did not want to deliberately offend you or was not aware that this term could be so much offensive as it happened to be.
Nevertheless, I would like to hear that Someone456 has any reasonable explanation of said words, as that edit summary seems very emotional, unnecessary and impulsive. I also expect any kind of sorry or remorse for these actions.
And under no circumstances don't get me wrong, I have no willing to tolerate that or any other insult on this wiki.
I am not saying that Someone456 is a bad person or it attempting to be mean, but I think they may be against edits that "attempt to" change what they tried to say, even if their grammar was not the best initially. Also, major style changes to a page seem to make them upset. I am not sure their first language is English either.
I believe this does go against "good faith" edits. If they revert your edits, just ask another active moderator to evaluate the edit.
I took a look at the edit in question that led to this thread, and Someone456 claimed that Luizsouthier was deleting content when that wasn't even the case. They were reorganizing the content in a different layout, similar to other event pages. The article's comments section or talk page would have been a better place to discuss the page's layout, rather than a reversion with nasty language.
Hey Lukisiak, I wanted to ask you if you would allow me to update Template:User Medals to make it look more like how it looks in the game. I have the CSS and HTML ready, but I want to code it in Lua so it's much faster than a MediaWiki template.
Yep, it follows the in-game badge order. Gold, then silver, then bronze, then the silhouettes. Each tier is then ordered by the medal's release. If you compare the template to your in-game profile, it should be the same exact order :)
Hello, Lukisiak! My name is SlyCooperFan1 (call me Sly!) and I'm the new Wiki Manager for your wiki, replacing Jr Mime. I act as a liaison between this community and Fandom Staff and I'm here to provide assistance wherever needed, so please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
I put them back because it was om my sandbox, about testing the idea about the stop "Lists of", "List of", "list" etc mainly in the article title, stopping the blockage show Here, letting the article titles be sorted out to appropriate places as shown and seeing if the pages exist on my sandbox test. with your comment "Haha, no."
If there is a problem about it you could comment on my talk page Mr Taz so I can edit it if needed.
I still have no clue what you actually want, Just remove red links, I'm tired of constantly cleaning it. And as for me, it's no for stopping the "List of" prefixes. Having articles named "List of" allows for consistency and possibility to differ articles with paragraphs and descriptions from pages being basically a lists.
I mean the stop over use of the "List of" prefixes on all page that have a list in them. in the end having to start a List of lists of lists style page to keep track of them.
This wiki has a 'Pokémon' (using the singular term) page but 'List of Pokémon' page which could be moved to simply to 'Pokémons' (using the plural term) placing them under the same letter in All pages. Leaving "List of" prefix only for pages that may need more work by add some explanation to the list on the page.
ok, Lukisiak, if you can't see how others can use the wikia, By using Special:Allpages to test, that page or pages exist (or making them if needed), then adding them to the Category:Listings or to another Categories where appropriate.
...By using Special:Allpages to test, that page or pages exist (or making them if needed)...
Why would anyone use Allpages to test if a hypothetical page exists at the first place? The page is not a search engine but an index. And if you want to see whether page is needed or not, you just use Wantedpages.
Someone456 is right. There is Listings category already and it has been here since before you started you're ridiculous idea of putting loads of unnecessary red links in your profile, workbench-kinda subpage at the time creating massive dump into the Wantedpages.
This wiki has a 'Pokémon' (using the singular term) page but 'List of Pokémon' page which could be moved to simply to 'Pokémons' (using the plural term) placing them under the same letter in All pages.
Who would say "Pokémons", if you're trying to be at least a bit professional or acknowledged with Pokémon topic. "Pokémon" is plural for "Pokémon". And as for me, it looks just weird to write "Pokémons".
Lets Stop this, and agree to disagree?
Bruhh.. start with saying it to yourself, because I firmly said "And as for me, it's no for stopping the "List of" prefixes." a month ago and gave you then reasons why these pages are the way they are. But it's you who keeps insisting and continues finding those pointless reasons.
Hello lukisak my name is Tyler helt. What pokemon have you had as your buddy in Pokémon go and what is your favorite Pokémon mine is pikachu and what's your starter Pokémon in Pokémon go and what's your favorite region in Pokémon.
I'm not sure what you're really asking there, but the whole question that Im trying to ask if is it allowed to use the images, bc Niantic's web doesn't really help with answers, but from what you've said I'm going to assume that it is allowed. Sorry if I was confusing in asking my questions
I'm not the right person to ask about copyrighting and rights to these files. Especially as I had file rights classes a long time ago. This wiki/fandom and this whole content here is under CC-BY-SA license, so sharing files here is like "quoting" them (someone correct me if I'm wrong). Moreover, using these files here is non-commercial.
If you are writing an app with advertisement or it is paid or anyhow commercial, I would suggest you not to use any sort of copyrighted files, you don't have rights to (it includes Pokémon GO assets). I hope I helped.
