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

To answer your question, it is in-active because 90% of the content and code here, has been stolen, or is actuively being stolen from, Fringepedia.net. The thief/thieves have been getting in trouble with the good folks that run Wikia. Same for ES.Fringe. --71.141.233.234

Interesting. I wonder why they would be doing that. Probably some wiki politics gone wrong. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 12:35 AM PST 11 Oct 2009
Actually, that was just User:Matias arana 10. — Balistic 03:51, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
+ Yeah... but actually, 600 thefts by Matias arana 10, PLUS Dark Kights with almost 200 content steals (a Matias Sockpuppet?), and Federgaray with over 450 thefts for the Spanish Fringe wikia page. Wiki politics has nothing to do with anything. It is software, not a brotherhood. That is like suggesting Microsoft Office users are all magically connected. Wikia is a profit generating domain, worth about $12 million, that relies on free help to make money. When that 'free help' steals Unique Content from other domains that are trying to make money too... that creates an issue of ethics. --71.141.233.234
There are some politics involved. Why would the thieves even come here unless they didn't feel welcome at FringePedia.net for some reason. Their reasons may not be legitimate, but political decisions often lack ethics or legitimacy. I contribute here mostly only because Wikia logins are shared and I can easily contribute here and at other Wikia wikis. I would contribute at Fringepedia.net, but I just don't want to hassle with remembering another login. Otherwise I think Fringepedia is doing a great job and better than this wiki. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 10:37 PM PST 22 Oct 2009

TemplatesEdit

Nice work on the Templates. A place for everything, and everything in it's place.--User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 18:45, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Something to do. ;-) Can't categorize {{Please do not remove this line (yellow notice)}} because it is protected. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7:09 PM PST 21 Feb 2010

Fox.comEdit

Although I understand you spent sometime adding and arranging those external sites, They are considered a competing website. Unless they start to link back to us on their main page, we shouldn't drive our visitors to other wiki's. I hope you understand. Thanks for making the Season 2 Name templates, and keep up the great edits.--User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 16:46, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Hey I know what you mean, I'm relatively new here, To FringeWiki not to wikia, It would be better to reword than to site sources. Other sites like Fringpedia, FringeTelevision, and others consider us a "Black Sheep", or more than likely a "Black Eye". The people who have stolen have been removed, like User:Matias arana 10 and his subsequent user name have been banned. We have to step it up ourselves to make this wiki better. Some rewrites here, some new images there. On other wikia wikis, we won't link unless we get linked to. Thanks again for understanding. --User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 19:18, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Crossref templateEdit

I get what you were tiring to do with the cross ref template but, we have kept it simple. I've run into a problem before at other wikis where to much use of one template on a singe page will cause it to create an error "pages with too many expensive parser function calls". We've simplified it, by a wikia staff request, by having individual cross reference and episode name templates i.e. {{Crossref 1x01}} ("Pilot") and {{1x01}} "Pilot". Add all the content you want but when it comes to major organization and template changes, please ask, so that your edits wont be in vain. --User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 02:13, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

I don't know what wiki you worked on, but I was a founding admin at WoWWiki (one of the biggest wikis in the world) and the error you saw was more likely a very bad and poorly configured wiki and not a problem with parser functions. Take a look at w:c:wow:Template:tooltip and w:c:wow:Template:loot. These templates are used all over WoWWiki and are way more complicated than anything Fringe Wiki will ever use. Look at w:c:wow:WoWWiki:Templates to see the many, many complicated templates that are in frequent use all over WoWWiki.
You can delete anything you want, but please do it based on good information and not suspicions. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 2:24 AM PST 25 Feb 2010

It wasn't on suspicions, that's not how it's done at this wiki, that's all. I'd hate to get into an argument with you and then you leave and delete all your stuff and create a forum to complain about it on the way out, because you keep getting into arguments with other admins, oops.. i mean THE admin. It's just me and Balistic, and he checks in every once and a while. Like i said before STAFF asked me to do it this way, so i am being compliant. Not all users are as smart as you, not everyone knows wiki code or templates as well as you. Not everyone is a know it all. I don't care which wiki you came from, I've been nothing but cordial to you, so please treat me with the same respect. --User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 02:53, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure deleting stuff and telling me after the fact is so cordial, but whatever. I can work on other wikis. If you want to cripple your wiki based on "how it's done at this wiki" (which doesn't sound like an explanation a all). I guess I will talk to STAFF and ask them why they put this restriction on the Fringe wiki. Unlike most people who work on Wikia wikis, I've actually been to Wikia headquarters in SF and talked to the STAFF directly.
I'm not getting a real friendly vibe from you, so I guess I will reduce my contributions to mostly just editing and adding to existing content. You may think you're being as friendly as you can be, but your reactions are very territorial and don't make much sense to me. If you want this to be YOUR wiki, then that's fine, but it isn't going to grow it much. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4:37 PM PST 25 Feb 2010

I'm glad we agree.--User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 16:31, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Random in CharacterEdit

Thanks for reminding me about that. After shooting them an E-mail, or two, the turned it on. Again, awesome work with the filler until.--User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 03:17, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Image CategoriesEdit

Before you start making changes, research how every other category is listed. If you are going to upload new silhouettes, replace them with your new gimmick.--User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 22:57, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, you're just going to have to change or undo things you don't like. I can't read your mind and I don't want to ask you about every little thing I do. You can ban me if that isn't a satisfactory answer. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11:01 PM PST 3 Mar 2010
I've never wanted to ban you, you wanted to ban yourself. I leave it up to you.--User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 23:13, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
I can't ban myself. The wiki doesn't work that way. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11:14 PM PST 3 Mar 2010

But that's how you work, if you don't like something you delete it all and leave, but since you're not an admin here you cat do that. You'll just have to ban yourself=stop editing. I don't care which you do, leave or stay, but when you try and help, do a little research first. Explain yourself, like you want to be taken seriously. --User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 23:20, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

As long as you hold other users to the same standard. From what I can tell, you don't. But if you aren't willing to ban me, then I will continue on as I have been. You should be glad Balistic Pve doesn't treat you the way you treat me. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11:46 PM PST 3 Mar 2010
No, I give what I get. I get slack, i give it. If you are nice and unobtrusive like Station7, that's what you get from me. Those are the guidelines I hold. Balistic treated me how i treated him, with a little respect. --User_My_Name_Is_Tom_YingYangsm.pngMy Name Is Tom (Talk / Edits) 00:41, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

User page trouble Edit

I cannot get rid of that banner up the top that says:

This is the user page of Klltr. If you are Klltr, feel free to edit this page tell us a little bit about you.

Could you help me with this issue so that I can edit my user page? Thanks. Klltr 03:18, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Season One character templateEdit

I just edited the Season One article. The only changes I made were to the introduction (to update outdated material). Yet when I saved the article, the Character Template was messed up. You might want to check that out. I didn't touch any of that coding at all. If it's a custom template you might need to revise the coding otherwise anytime anyone makes an edit to the text they could end up messing things up. If the only way to repair it is to revert my edit, feel free, though if you could make my changes yourself that would be great! 68.146.81.123 15:02, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

You totally messed with the character tables, even if unintentionally. Just look at the page history. If you were using the Rich Text Editor, it doesn't surprise me, since it messes up many pages with templates. I'll fix. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7:00 PM PST 25 Sep 2010

MediaWiki:Wikia.css Edit

Hi Can you added the following code below to MediaWiki:Wikia.css

/* "Show Changes" */
.WikiaPage #wpDiff { background-color: #000; width: 105px; }

/* Red Link (page does not exist) */
.WikiaPage a.new { color: #ff8000; }

Thanks -- Chief (talk) (contribs) 14:59, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

Done. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 9:11 AM PST 9 Nov 2010

imdb templates Edit

I've create this IMDb template which uses title, name ect.. instead of these templates

-- Chief (talk) (contribs) 10:36, December 12, 2010 (UTC)
Ok thanks. I've renamed it to {{imdb}} (all lower-case for easier typing and remembering), made some modifications and added it to the Templates wiki (w:c:templates:Template:imdb). -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 8:04 AM PST 12 Dec 2010

AdministratorEdit

Thanks. While I do spend a lot of time on the Stargate wiki it has just aired it's last episode so anything I do there is not time sensitive and can be done in my free time. In addition, I am also the bureaucrat over at the Sons of Anarchy Wiki but since it only has 13 episode seasons I think I could handle the extra work load and would love to be a Administrator here.

Admin?Edit

Hi. Would you mind making me an admin? I've been on this Wikif or a couple months now and done a lot edits.

-I've actively been updating the Front Page News and "Next on Fringe"

-I created and wrote nearly all of the content, save a few minor edits, on the pages: Observers, ZFT, and The Vacuum.

-Extensively updated Nina Sharp, John Scott, and in the process of getting Peter Bishop completely up to date as well as The Pattern and Cortexiphan.

-Added 75+ completely new photos to the Wiki

I would really appreciate it!


Thanks
