  • We need more Mods to regulate discussions.

    • I agree. As of late, more and more posts have required moderator intervention. I think two additional Discussion mods would be a good thing. You have shown good judgement in your reporting of posts, so I would be comfortable with you being one of them if that is something you are interested in.

    • Great! As a Discussions mod, just be familiar with the rules and be transparent with every user that you make an action on. Always try to find a way to tell a user what they did wrong, so they have the opportunity to not make that mistake again.

      If a post breaks one of the rules, you are free to delete the post (you can also just lock the post, but deleting it keeps the feed clean and less cluttered, so deleting is preferred). But when you do so, unlock this thread and make a comment on it. In the comment, mention the user whose post you deleted and the reason why you deleted their post. After you make your comment, re-lock the post so only us mods can make comments on it.

      And there you go! That's the basics of how to be a mod for the Battlefront Wiki Discussions. If you're not sure how to handle a certain case, just let me know and I can take a look. And if you have any other questions or concerns, just message me on here or on Discord too if you have that.

  • Hello There Lamosq,

    I have recently been trying to earn some more badges to my user, such as "Make 250 edits on articles" and "Add 10 articles to categories", and I've been wanting to create a category page known as "Items unlocked through Milestones", which does not yet exist, where you can find pages like "Old Master" and various Infantry weapons. But I do not yet know how to make a category page, and I was hoping for some help. Do you just go to "Add category" on a page and write one out, and boom, that category page now exists? or is there some further process behind it?

    • Hey Sisu, that sounds like a good category. Yes, you can create a category by clicking "Add category" and writing one out. Additionally, you can create categories when you are editing an article by typing out a new category in this little box. Technically when you do either of those things, the category page itself does not yet exist, even though the page has been added to that category already (you can see this with Category:General Grievous Update). You can create a category page by clicking on the category after you've created it. It should take you to a page titled Category:category-name. There should be a button to the right of the title that says "Create", like so. When you create a category page, you can add a little description about the category, but you don't need to. After you've created a category page, it will show up in the future as a category suggestion when you try to add other articles to it. I hope this helps.

  • Hello there!

    I've had some complications, and I thought you might be able to help. 

    I want to have a userbox container, but I wasn't able to get it to work. For some reason, all the userboxes were duplicated, and I couldn't do anything to the container itself.

    Also, I saw the tabs on Anakin_Skyobiliviator's page, and would like to replicate that.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    • Hey TheGoodGeneral, by userbox container, do you mean something like I have on my userpage, where I have my userboxes all contained at the bottom of an infobox? I use a custom infobox, so I can show you how to make a container that way if you also want to use a custom infobox. If you want to add a userbox container to the Character infobox (the infobox you are currently using), I could try adapting the Character infobox to include a userbox container, though I'm not sure if it might work. I will have to do some playing around with it.

      For the tabs that Anakin made, all you need to do is use Template:Parent Tab Template. The documentation page does a pretty good job of explaining how to use it, but basically you put this in the source editor (I'm not sure how you would input the values for this template on the Visual Editor):

      {{Parent Tab Template
      | tab1 = value1
      | tab2 = value2
      | tab3 = value3
      }}
      

      with the value being the name of the subpage itself, e.g. if I wanted to make a tab that links to User:Lamosq1027/Workbench, I would put the code:

      {{Parent Tab Template
      | tab1 = Workbench
      }}
      

      onto my userpage (User:Lamosq1027).

      Note that the Parent Tab Template only works for subpages of the page it is currently on, so if you put it on your userpage (User:TheGoodGeneral 1), the name of every page you want to make tabs for would have to start with User:TheGoodGeneral 1/.

      There are some other parameters you could put to customize the appearance of each tab, such as bordercolor. The documentation page goes into more detail on how to do that.

      Please let me know if anything I said is confusing or unclear.

    • The tabs worked perfectly! Thanks so much.

      I found a userbox container template in the Templates tab, however, when I pasted my userboxes, they were all duplicated. Also, I couldn't find a space to put in colors like on the userboxes themselves.

      I wasn't planning on having it inside the infobox; I imagined it being in the same spot as where my userboxes are now.

      Thanks again for the help.

    • Hey TheGoodGeneral, sorry for the delayed response.

      I'm glad the tabs worked for you. Regarding the userbox container template, I see what you mean by it duplicating everything. It must have something to do with the template code, though I'm not exactly sure what yet. I'm currently testing it on my sandbox. I will get back to you once I have figured out the issue with that particular template, and see if there is a spot I can include customizing the colors of the infobox.

  • According to the community central I have to go either Special:ListGroupRights or Special:ListAdmins, but once I put these on a website what do I do from there?

  • I have been trying to get around the wikis like everybody else does since yesterday, but for some reason I can't submit my edits, use the search tab (on the screen where things like FANDOM, GAMES, MOVIES, etc. are on), and other things. How are you doing this stuff so easily?! It's not fair!

  • is their really a differene between admin and bureaucrat

      Loading editor
    • Bureaucrats can promote other users to bureaucrat (including admins), and do stuff like change the name of the wiki. Other than that (and maybe a few others things that I don’t know), they don’t have that many differences

  • Hello Lamosq,

    Does going out of bounds on a certain map to get to point A to point B count as a glitch if point B is not accessible without going out of bounds?
