Edit

Yep I can do that. I will get started in a few minutes and should have it done latter tonight. The way I am thinking about it, is the butterfly where the sword and shield are then below it instead of Guild it says Fringe Wiki. Also no [[ ]] on either side of the butterfly. Let me know if that sounds about right. Also I am going to do it in a png format so you will have a clear background. That way you can put it on any color you want. I have never seen Fringe before, looks kind of cool. SpikeiconTenetke Mekko My Talk Page 00:19, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

That's exactly how I was thinking it :) — BalisticSig 00:23, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
This is a rough draft to get an idea of what you think. SpikeiconTenetke Mekko My Talk Page 02:55, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

It's looking great already! Though when it is small you can't really tell that those are shadows. — BalisticSig 02:56, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I will upload a different version that has been centered with some shadows. You can tell me what you think about that one. About the shadows, do you want me to lighten something up for the logo? Unfortunately for a logo it is going to lose a good bit of the fine detail. Beautiful picture by the way. The fringe websites list of pictures is Here so if you would rather another picture for it let me know. Didn't sign. SpikeiconTenetke Mekko My Talk Page 03:04, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
The butterfly is fine. The shadows are okay, but I want to see about how it would look without them — BalisticSig 03:08, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
This one seems better — BalisticSig 03:11, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I was trying to think of how to remove all the shadow work from Fringe without redoing it. I think my only option is to go ahead and redo the word Fringe. Not entirely sure how that is going to work out but I will give it a go. SpikeiconTenetke Mekko My Talk Page 03:17, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

(Reset indent) One more thing Tenetke, it needs to be 135w by 155h, i think you know that, considering you made the winter logo. Thanks again Tenetke. — BalisticSig 23:31, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

logoEdit

Hi. The logo needs to be a maximum of 216 pixels wide. (see help:logo). I'll try to find out why it's not currently displaying on this wiki. Angela@Wikia (talk) 07:04, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

the logo image at Wiki.png is used by both monobook, and monaco at the same time. in monobook, it expects a size of 135w by 155h. in monaco, you CAN but dont have to, go upto 216 wide to match the size of the sidebar area. this causes issues, but its rare that anyone uses monobook anymore, so you dont normally (but should) need to jump through hoops to keep people happy and ignorant of this issue.

the image you have at image:wiki.png right now is WAY too big, and will make monobook users freak out. here see

the reason that uploading a new wiki.png is not changing your current logo in the custom skin, is that in the css for the custom skin the logo is overwrode to display a wider (216w) logo since obviously, the custom monaco skin is obviously always going to be in monaco and can use the wider logo. the logo image used in the custom skin right now is image:Logo.png

when your changing the logos, please keep in mind that they may be cached for a little bit of time by both our image servers, our global image cache network, and also your browser. PLEASE dont panic and keep uploading it over top of its self, or deleting it over and over when it doesnt show up right away, that only makes it worse.

i hope this helps --Uberfuzzy@Wikia 08:26, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

I assumed that the wiki would have like a 200px or something that would automatically make it smaller. Apparently not. I'll see if Tenetke will make a smaller one. — BalisticSig 23:31, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Sorry I haven't been around the past few days. Been doing a paper for school about this endocrinology fellowship. I will be able to get it resized and everything in about an hour so I will post the update here when I get it. Is there anything I need to change other than the size. If so let me know. SpikeiconTenetke Mekko My Talk Page 03:01, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch Tenetke. I will be eternally grateful. btw: Just a tip put a space between "mekko" and "my talk page" — BalisticSig 03:19, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Plagiarism Edit

Hi, I'm messaging you as the most recently active admin. I've had to block Matias arana 10 again (and his alternative account Dark Kights). He's been copying directly from Fringepedia again. Please see his talk page for our previous discussions on this. It seems he is not going to listen to requests to add original content. Please can you and the other admins keep an eye out for more problems from him? Many thanks -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 20:11, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

No problem. I'll keep an eye on him. — BalisticSig 01:41, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

CSS and AutoBrowser Edit

Hi B-Pve. I was just cruising through and noticed that recent improvements allow me to '+' or __ NEWSECTIONLINK __ - which I like alot.

But I also noticed that I have the authority to MOVE - a sysop right or bot right normally. I am just a "registered user" somewhere else on wikia. But, I do have higher rights on wiki. I don't know if this was the intent... but it seems like a vulnerability (to me)... allowing even non-local users to MOVE.

Cheers. –DocH .

((Maybe I just have magical Widgets)) I'll check back here later - if you feel a need to responde vous.

All registered users of Wikia are allowed to move and our database is restricted to Users (meaning registered users can't edit). Registered users on Wikia can move on all wikis (unless the page is protected). — BalisticSig 23:30, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Anonymous editingEdit

Hi! I turned on anonymous editing again. Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you! -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 16:37, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! — BalisticSig 17:21, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

ru.fringe.wikia.comEdit

  • And as, at me a problem references to other languages

Community portal or forums Edit

Does this site have a community portal or an obvious link to the forums? I couldn't find any. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 12:13 AM PST 10 Oct 2009

Why does Fringe Wiki:About say it is inactive? Edit

I see this on Fringe Wiki:About:

This Fringe Wiki is inactive.
You should adopt this wiki.

Why is that? -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4:44 AM PST 10 Oct 2009

I pesonally have never seen that page, thats why it has never been updated. — Balistic 16:05, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

You should use a different wiki image on welcome-messages Edit

MediaWiki:Welcome-message-user and MediaWiki:Welcome-message-anon both use File:Fringepedialogo.jpg which I have marked for deletion since it is almost just a variation of the fringepedia.net logo. I already put File:Wiki.png in the {{welcome}} and {{welcomeIP}} templates, so you might consider using that image. Also consider File:Fringe-Wiki-Logo.png for both the site logo and the welcome messages. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 5:03 AM PST 11 Oct 2009

But the image itself was created by a user here (the original founder) before I took over and changed the wiki's name. — Balistic 05:59, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't matter, you should change it unless you insist on continuing to look like this wiki is copying fringepedia.net. Changing the logo is a good start to charting a new course. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 10:26 PM PST 11 Oct 2009
Thanks for making the change. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 8:18 PM PST 22 Oct 2009
No problem. btw are you using monobook? the new skin is awesome. — Balistic 01:38, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Wrong edit date Edit

Hi Balistic Pve. I made an update to the page Sonia Curtis on October 18. The previous edit was on June 24 by 'Matias arana 10'. Toward the bottom of the page it says "CuriousEric made an edit on June 24, 2009" which is the wrong date. Isn't this text automatically generated? Same problem on the page Katharine. This seems to indicate a bug in the Wiki software. CuriousEric 02:32, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

re:Logos Edit

Hi Balistic. Just letting you know I uploaded a new version of Wiki.png with the requested white text. I also uploaded MonacoLogo.png as a possible new Monaco logo. How's that look? If you'd like me to make any changes to it, just say so and I'll be glad to. JoePlay@Wikia (talk) 20:06, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

updates on cast-list Edit

So no outside links, hunh?

Users editing another user's personal page Edit

Hi Balistic,

I have a question about a user named My Name Is Tom who edited my personal user page (http://fringe.wikia.com/wiki/User:Schecky) recently.

I notice that it says "Improve Fringe Wiki by editing this page" at the bottom of the page, but shouldn't contributors avoid messing with other users' personal pages?

I had a category, labeled "Jokes" on my own page and it had a light-bulb joke about Fringe characters in it. Sure, it may have been lame, but it reflects only on me and not the Fringe Wiki as a whole. It doesn't use up a lot of bandwidth and it was not misplace in some category where it did not belong. It was not even in the Forum, where I would expect folks to come and interact with it-- it was just on my personal page.

This guy removed all the content and moved on.

I would never do that to someone's user page.

Any advice would be appreciated,

Schecky 18:45, January 31, 2010 (UTC)Schecky

Trying to clean up the categories section. Removed the bogus categories and that was one of them. Besides it was a terrible joke anyway.--User My Name Is Tom YingYang My Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 21:26, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
I only removed the category. The joke wasn't even on the page, it was on the summary section. Besides you haven't edited here since 23:00, June 2, 2009. It wasn't until i changed it that you started editing. --User My Name Is Tom YingYang My Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 23:51, January 31, 2010 (UTC)

Category: Candidates for deletionEdit

Just in case you haven't seen what I've been up to Category:Candidates for deletion. I would have deleted them myself but, I don't have those privileges. There have been a few images i wanted to move, but i don't have those privileges either. I would have updated the MediaWiki:Monaco-sidebar but again... Any thought put into my request?--User My Name Is Tom YingYang My Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 00:19, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Since you deleted those pages, and you have never given me a response, or even a simple hello, I'll take that as a no.--User My Name Is Tom YingYang My Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 01:31, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm? Didn't really read XD — Balistic 02:44, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
I would wait until you have edited more before proceeding with the RfA. — Balistic 02:45, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

MediaWiki talk:Monaco-sidebarEdit

Updated the sidebar, but you have to change it. MediaWiki talk:Monaco-sidebar.--User My Name Is Tom YingYang My Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 07:07, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

PeterEdit

Doing it that way almost all of these will have to be changed to [[Peter Bishop|Peter]]. Or are we gonna leave it, and just use {{For}}--User My Name Is Tom YingYang My Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 22:31, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

So?Edit

What do you think? Am I good enough to be credited the admin privileges? It's real annoying having to put {{Delete}} on everything that should be clearly deleted, and to easily move a File to it's proper name. How about a trial period, if i make too many mistakes in "your eyes" take the privileges away, I'm here to help, not hurt. Considering you're the only Bureaucrat here now, the other runs his own website www.walterslab.com.--User My Name Is Tom YingYang My Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 01:24, February 12, 2010 (UTC)

RollbackEdit

Hey there Balistic Pve, I like this Wiki and I'm already helping, but could you make me Rollback? I'm going to put more info later to the actors and crew. Or do I need more edits? --Station7 21:20, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Well, there isn't really an issue with vandalism, and if you are going to make pages on actors and crew, rollback will be of no use, as it would probably only be you editing. — Balistic 23:56, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

I saw your acconut at Wikia. And you forgot this Wiki, Linkin Park Wiki and maybe the Dutch Wiki. Or does has that nothing to do with your account on the normal Wiki (community Wikia)?--Station7 20:56, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

I haven't "forgotten" them, I was never active at the Dutch or Linkin Park Wikis, and recently I've had a lot of work to do. — Balistic 22:34, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

Balistic Pve, this is a little bit freaky how I'm going to write it, but My Name Is Tom wants that i have a Rollback position on this Wiki. Actually should you and My Name Is Tom talk with each other about giving me a Rollback status. Because he wants it. I don't wanna get in the fight. I hope that you to can talk it out.--Station7 21:41, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

I don't understand your English, sorry :\ — Balistic 04:53, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

What I did mean was: My Name Is Tom wants that I become a Rollback. But you're the Bureaucrat here. He really wants that I become a Rollback on Fringe Wiki. And what now? Do you understand it now?--Station7 10:06, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, something happened to my computer. I change your version back to Rollback. Thanks.--Station7 17:03, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

Something didn't "happen", you probably just accidentally hit the rollback button. (: — Balistic 17:43, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I did that. Well it looks like I did that, since I looked it back at the orange thing above the computer. Station7 17:43, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

My Name Is Tom is gone?Edit

Hey there Balistic Pve, I have doing a research and I found out that My Name Is Tom, has not edit as much as he did first. It looks like he left "every" Wiki where he was. On the Mario Wiki, he let Wikia Staff Member Sarah Manley everything removing from his talk page, also she protect his page. Very strange to me, he even't haven't noticed that I'm Rollback (and he reallly want that, I think because he's leaving all the Wiki's for an unknown reason). Maybe you know what happened to him? I really like the guy, but is he gone?--Station7 20:41, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

ProtectEdit

Could you please protect Template:Userbox Sysop. I have made this for the sysops. Thanks. Please don't be angry, I have made those for you and the other sysops.--Station7 20:40, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

SpoilersEdit

I think this user has created articles that are actually spoilers. User:Lowriders95s10, has created articles about new episodes. Are this spoilers or not?--Station7 16:52, April 15, 2010 (UTC)

Are you still there?Edit

Are you still here around somewhere? You haven't been here in days.. I hope you don't left Wiki's!--Station7 15:26, June 15, 2010 (UTC)
