I was trading with tucker for the vellum. I was unaware that i can only trade with him three times. My first trade I only had one stack then for the two other trades I managed to get four stacks of rolanberries.
My question is, do I have to wait until I get another chance to trade? Or I can't get the job?
Hey Haldarn! We've met before, but I'd like to reintroduce myself as the Fandom Wiki Manager for FFXIclopedia. I'm here to help your community, and I'm a liaison to full-time Fandom Staff. If you have any questions relating to the wiki, whether it's code-related, policy related, or otherwise, I'm your first point of contact.
Feel free to let me know if you need anything! I'll check your RecentChanges a couple times a week, but for the quickest replies, drop me a message on my talk page here!
I did float it to a couple of the active admins on the site to see if they were interested, and let them know to contact you back then, but honestly I think that they are more focused on their own projects, which are key to getting the encyclopedia completed data-wise or ensuring clear explanations in articles.
Personally, as I mentioned at the time, I am not a fan of the current mobile implementation due to its limitations and formatting restrictions, though I do keep an eye out in the hope it'll evolve in the future to something functional and appropriate to the site.
It was a big hit to lose Monobook support, and we lost regular and advanced contributions from our oldest and most technical editor because of it. Ironically, he would have been the one happiest to work on a Mobile layout.
That's fair, and sorry to hear about the lost support from Monobook being removed. Makes sense that the admins of the time were busy-- there's a lot to do! If I can help with the mobile skin in any way, let me know...
So, I finally took the time to fix some of the problems with the tooltip and collapsible section scripts. They're still under review, but the biggest thing is that both should work in preview mode now. Additionally, tooltips should stay in frame better and won't slide under other elements as much.
Karuberu : I didn't have any specific uses in mind when I started working on it (more for the novelty than anything), but it might work well for the "Plot Details" subpages of missions - they're currently pretty ugly.
Karuberu : ...and I applied it to my Item Statistics sandbox template, because I was curious. Despite what I said before about wanting to keep the statistics box looking different from item images, it does look pretty nice to me... >_<
Karuberu : Hah! Neat idea. I was actually thinking about making some of the other variants sometime down the road and adding it as the "type" parameter in the template.
Karuberu : It'd be cool to have it as a user setting somehow, but I'm not sure how that could be done aside from providing some CSS code to paste in (maybe that's good enough?). Right now it's all done in the code (aside from the no-color-links class), so I'd have to move the style parts to Common.css, but it could be done.
Karuberu : As for the links: it's intentional that they're unstyled, but I was thinking about making a template that mimics the default colors used in-game. You could use that to color them as the green color used for items or the blue color used for key items. You could also use the Autotranslate template to mark them. Other than that, I don't have any ideas that fit into the theme of the game. The plain links and default bold text (a little harder to read) are both fairly good reasons not to use it in the item statistics, actually.
I did some digging and managed to fix the issues with tooltips showing up on mobile. Turns out there's a "hidden" class that hides elements on mobile, so we just need to use class="hidden" in addition to style="display:none;" whenever we want to hide anything. The class does nothing outside of mobile, so that display: none is still needed. Wikia is great at web design.
I still maintain, even after my discussion with people over on Community Central, that by far and away the better solution to mobile use is to use the one-time Desktop Site link at the bottom, or ask your browser to "View Desktop Site".
Tooltips work on my mobile fine under Chrome with longpress. The layout is actually better than Oasis on desktop because it moves the siderail underneath the page.
And until Mercury becomes even slightly aesthetically pleasurable, I don't intend to spend any time developing pages for it (ie moving away from tables to structure design templates) as Wikia have requested. They did open channels to say they could provide assistance to anyone of our admins who wanted to do so, in case you felt the urge - I have also let Toast know - details are in that thread^^
Oh, no, you're absolutely right. The mobile site is breaking all kinds of rules when it comes to good web design - I haven't seen much worse. I'm only interested in fixing things that are very broken on mobile, like the tooltips showing up all the time and the infoboxes being all kinds of broken. I'm not too concerned with making it look good on mobile, because they make that pretty much impossible (no stylesheets, stripping inline styling, etc.).
I'm also moving away from using tables in templates, but that has more to do with the flexibility that styled divs provide; the mobile site functionality is just a bonus.
Wikia stopped supporting the forums on 30th April 2017, when they were taken offline permanently.
Wikia do host the archive of the forums which is only available to download via Torrent, at about 2.5GB. I just checked and it's still available.
It is a phpbb archive, so I believe in order to browse them in their original format, you'd have to upload the archive to a phpbb server, whether that is local or online. If you're just after information and don't mind crawling unformatted text, you may be able to do so just from the archive itself.
If you'd like the torrent file, feel free to drop me a private message on our Discord server with your e-mail address and I'll send the .torrent file to you (I can't upload it here).
If you have current queries, rather than being after old posts, our Discord server is your best place to ask! :)
