User merge[edit]

Since the spam bots wont budge with gibberish in user pages anymore do I merge them like the ones you did recently.

Posting here cause my phone right now is dead :]

Yeah, you can merge them into Anonymous. Try to not accidentally merge actual user accounts. You can check the AbuseFilter logs on individual protocols and check the content edits they tried making, or if you see them actually make the spam page in RecentChanges, to ensure that.

Small tip[edit]

You can use {{PAGENAME}} so you don't have to rewrite the same word over again. Decreases effort for long titles and chance of spelling error ;)

Also in case the page name gets a rename. The said thing will also change according to the page name

I'm cool with this. Generally hate the magic word PAGENAME, but afaik I don't think there's anything on this wiki that's going to make it a major hindrance, at least not for most item/vehicle pages. --MoltonMontro (talk) 03:29, 3 May 2018 (PDT)

Inquiry - Item Icons[edit]

First off, I want to say that I'm quite impressed with your skills in wiki management. The formatting and everything looks very solid, and I presume you're going to be dedicated on improving it in the foreseeable future. Congratulations in that regard.

That said I have a minor question - I've noticed that in pages like the Item List, you have icons of certain items. I'm curious as to how you got those icons (e.g. from Nelson, from Github, extracting from files, etc.) and was wondering if you'd share how you got them. Thanks!

The item images are currently just being made/edited manually be myself from media references, with a 2 px width 253 px softness black outline added afterwards. When creating icons for smaller inventory-size items, ie: the belt and dogtags, I typically first clean-up the larger sources of it available from when they're equipped on a character, and then scale it down. There are a few issues with the wiki's file database though (in regards to re-uploads, renames, moving, deleting, etc.), so they might all end up being wiped at some point in the future. (Also in the future, I'll likely just talk to Nelson about exporting the HD images again whenever the game is in a more solid state.) —MoltonMontro (talk)

Notifications[edit]

I don't know if it's intentional, but the text in the notification tab has a shadow behind it. I think it makes the informations difficult to read, and I suggest to remove it. I don't know if it's the place to make such request, but there isn't an admin noticeboard page such as gamepedia's one.

It's already been noted on the trello. Thanks though!—MoltonMontro (talk) 06:12, 17 November 2018 (PST)
The issue is now resolved (as of yesterday)!—MoltonMontro (talk) 12:58, 21 December 2018 (PST)
