  • I fixed the links in the drop down Films menu on the front page.  For some reason, the last two movies are not showing up though, so before I go through and fix any other things in the menu, I am going to ask the wiki manager if they know what do do, unless you have any thoughts.

  • Hey there Gringo300, hope you're well! I was hoping to run something by you and just get your approval before doing it. Current best practices for main pages recommend that you remove the "Home" heading - would you mind if I went ahead with this? I personally reckon it makes the main page look a whole lot sleeker, but I of course wanted to make sure you were okay with it first!

    I also just wanted to check in with you regarding DocOctober's block; I notice that there was a bit of a dispute, but do you believe a permanent block is necessary? Perhaps just a week will suffice to get the message across. :)

    • I previously had a longer title under the Home Heading.  However, when the wikia to fandom change was made, it reverted back to home.  I have only left it like that because I got the impression that the site didn't want it to change.  But feel free to delete it.

  • Hello there!

    I'm a Senior Admin on the Dead by Daylight Wiki hosted by Gamepedia and Content Moderator on the Dead by Daylight Wiki hosted by Fandom.

    It was brought to my attention that a user called MissSlenderNeko has copy-pasted Gamepedia's articles about the character of Freddy Krueger and Quentin Smith onto this Wiki here. This is in violation of the Creative Commons licence both Fandom and Gamepedia Wikis abide by. I removed the problematic content from the articles, but ask you to keep a watchful eye in case of someone reverting my edits back to the copy-pasted articles. The offending user has a history of copy-pasting stuff across multiple Wikis and got reprimanded multiple times to my knowledge (she received a ban of several months duration on the Fandom Dead by Daylight for the very same offence, for example). Personally, I would keep a watchful eye on her too, though Fandom staff informed me that they took notice of the debacle and will have a word with her.

    Apologies for any inconveniences.

    Best,

    Doc

    P.S. The articles also featured several images that stem from Gamepedia as well, are custom content and may not be used here either. I kindly ask you to delete those as I lack the necessary permission here:

    - All Add-on icons titled "File:64px-FulliconAddon_somethingsomething.png" (Freddy's article)

  • Hey there Gringo300! I just wanted to check in with you, make sure everything's alright and whether you need a hand with anything; I see you've been reworking parts of the wiki lately, which is great! It's always good to have more comprehensive detail to better flesh out the content.

    Related to this, I noticed that we don't currently utilise portable infoboxes on the wiki. While there's nothing wrong with the current ones at face value, they only work functionally for desktop users; in the past month alone, 64% of our viewers have been using mobile, and another 4% using tablets - thus, 68% in all using the mobile theme. With this in mind, I was wondering if you were interested in me converting our infoboxes into a more mobile-friendly format. I'm more than happy to work some CSS and make them look the same as they currently do, or if you were interested I can even whip something new up!

    Let me know what you think! :)

    • I've updated nearly all of them to have the new format, but I've left "Infobox character", as it conflicts with "Character". Totally up to you which you'd rather keep, as it's more the name than anything, as you can always add stuff and take away where needed, but it'd probably be an idea to fix up the discrepancy so there's no confusion! :)

    • Just on following up with this, I saw you were using "Infobox character", so I went ahead and converted it to the portable format, and removed the remaining instances of the other template!

  • Hey Gringo300, Can I Ask You A Question!

  • Hey there, I'm MakeShift, and I've been assigned to the Elm Street Wiki as your Wiki Manager! I'm here to help you guys and act as a sort of "liaison" between you and full-time Fandom staff, and to generally help you make sure your wiki's in tip-top shape.

    Also, while I'm introducing myself, I might bring up Fandom's latest project, in case you're unfamiliar with it, the Unified Community Platform, or UCP. In how the UCP affects the general user, the project will seek to make editing and getting around wikis a whole lot easier, so it's nothing but an upgrade in terms of editing and content creation, and a bonafide benefit to all.

    I'll be here during the whole process and well past it to help with any concerns you guys might have, so by all means don't hesitate to contact me if you need an assist!

  • Hi, I'm writing about the main page template, specifically the template {{w:Horrorfilmwikis}}

    I am proposing the template be removed and all contents be merged into the template below that. I think the wiki front main page could be simply using one template instead of two. Let me know what you think. Thank you.

  • I gave you both admin and bureaucrat rights.  Again, this does not mean you have to do more work.  But You have done more work than anyone in the history of this site. So now you have complete access and power over the entire site.

    You earned it.  I respect you.

    I am still here.  Even if I don't edit, I watch every day.  So again, I am not doing anything but rewarding you for your hard work.  I am extremely impressed.

  • Hey Gringo300! My name is Mandy, and I will be your Fandom Wiki Manager for the Elm Street Wiki. My job is to help the community and serve as a liaison to full-time Fandom staff, so if you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, etc., please don't hesitate to leave a message on my wall and I will do my best to assist you. :)

    Additionally, I'd like to inform you that the Movies/TV Vertical will be holding a horror wiki editing event at the end of this month, and Elm Street Wiki is one of the horror wikis that will be featured! We hope this will be a fun way to bring in new editors and show horror wikis some love, but it's also a good opportunity to focus on any areas that you think might need attention. We've already put some info for editors in Special:Community, but this is a good time to update that area with anything you’d like visiting editors to take a look at. Are there any specific areas of the wiki that you'd like to see improved? Any wishlist items, either for article pages or for any other part of the wiki? Let me know and I can certainly help out. Looking forward to hearing from you!
