Editing[edit source]

Hey, so Andrew was talking to me about the work by some of the admins and notice that you have really been doing a lot of substantial editing recently. Mostly just fixing red links and editing you user page. Just was hoping you could do a little more on the substantial editing side. I understand if you're busy, but a few edits a week wouldn't hurt. :D I'm not exactly a good example here on editing, but I'm planning to fix that. Hopefully, I can work on my editing. Anyways, just a little update.

Account rename and login issues on mobile[edit source]

Good morning. The login white page on mobile should now be fixed. And a ticket has been filed to merge your user accounts. I'll keep you posted. — Game widow (talk) 15:34, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, login works fine now. -Ben
Something weird just happened: all of my edits on the BenTheTechy account have been marked as if they were done from the Legofan100332 account...
That's part of the merge, they will all belong to BenTheTechy once the process is complete — Game widow (talk) 19:36, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
The merge should now be complete — Game widow (talk) 20:55, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks a lot!

User Profile page vs. classic user page[edit source]

The profile pages were never set up to do that sort of thing. All i can suggest is that you set your preferences to use the classic user page, then you'll have your tabs. To do that, just go to the preferences page, then on the User profile tab, Public Profile section, first field, choose "Use a standard wiki user page" and save. Then, when people click on links to your user page, they will be served that page where the tabs do work. — Game widow (talk) 20:48, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Is there another way to add tabs?
Not on the profile page — Game widow (talk) 21:00, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
Ok thanks anyways -BenTheTechy(Talk)Admin 21:01, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
You could link to your regular user page with a message like "for my cooler user page, click here" — Game widow (talk) 21:01, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Linking to UserWiki doesn't work -BenTheTechy(Talk)Admin 21:04, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

hmmm, ok, i will have the platform team check into that — Game widow (talk) 21:06, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
Ok, thx for that. Can you figure out a way to make Template:USERNAME (uses MediaWiki:Common.js work? It's supposed to display whoever is viewing's username. -BenTheTechy(Talk)Admin 21:10, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
lol .. i'm a step ahead, if not any wiser on that one. I have already asked about it — Game widow (talk) 21:15, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Blog pages - Do we keep 'em or not?[edit source]

They pop up when you click the Random Page button, and are a bit of a nuisance since they serve no real purpose with Gamepedia's format. Sooo...keep or delete? TronX7 Talk 03:27, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Hey Tron,
Personally I was thinking about that. It's cool to have them for archive purposes, but other than that there really isn't much of a point. I was thinking of removing them but was thinking that someone else would have done it already so I didn't. I actually created my own separate blog page (accessible from my user page), but I don't really know about the old ones. Consider me neutral on this matter.
-BenTheTechy(Talk)Admin 22:55, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
I actually came up with an idea. Why not just move the blog posts to User:USERNAME/BlogArchive/POSTNAME. I don't think user page subpages are accessible through random page. -BenTheTechy(Talk)Admin 04:25, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
Good idea. I'll try that. TronX7 Talk 03:53, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Do you think you can program your bot to do that so things can go faster? TronX7 Talk 03:58, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
I can try, but I'm not really an expert bot programmer. -BenTheTechy(Talk)Admin 04:13, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Problem encountered: They still show up when the random page button is pressed. TronX7 Talk 04:31, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Ok, time to reset the indents :) Maybe the Gamepedia staff can tweak that for us. -BenTheTechy(Talk)Admin 21:25, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
