Welcome back

Hello IlCthulu and welcome back. I was wondering if there was a process to apply for adminship here. There is no active bureaucrat to promote anyone, but I know Fandom Staff would be able to assist. Florarox (talk) 19:02, September 5, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks so much, I didn't catch that page when I was first looking through the policy pages. I just started a request, and if you have any feedback for how I could improve, please let me know. Florarox (talk) 19:34, September 5, 2019 (UTC)

Welcome Messages

I've done a bit of tinkering with a few things to see if I can work out a minor issue that's existed with the current welcome messages. If I did things correctly, it should now link to all admin talk pages without including an additional signature (just the admin_sig and date). Hypothetically, this may also help prevent some of the (somewhat) buggy missed welcome messages or activation of MediaWiki:Welcome-message-user-staff (which doesn't include policy links).

At least at this point, though, I'm not sure that site cache has been updated properly for the FANDOM bot. I'll try to keep an eye on new user welcome messages as I can to make sure this ends up working as intended.

Re: Home Page

That looks pretty good overall. I think my only concern would be that users browsing without an ad blocker may see a bit more inconsistent results in negative space. So it looks great with a regular height ad (negative space of about the height of the "Places to Help" section) but not as great with a double-height ad (negative space of about the "Huntik" and "Places to Help" sections combined). I really don't get why Wikia/Fandom set it up that way as it's rather finicky by nature. My initial thought would be to move the "Huntik" section down to be full width and keep a more minimal side-column. I'm currently out of town but can try to check a few things when I get back. ~ The Lhikan 634 (TaLk) Admin.svg 07:54, October 19, 2019 (UTC)

No Worries

My apologies I did not see the rules earlier, when I tried to edit the page, please do note I was not spamming, I am new to wikia so that is why I edited so many times I was trying to get it right, I was actually a little bit surprised to discover there was an active administratoion, I do not hope you think me a troll or disrespectful, honestly I was trying to help

sorry just saw the signature button rule --Badmanbill (talk) 09:38, October 26, 2019 (UTC)

You can't deny there's probably something there, they just do what all the animes do and have the romantic moment interrupted right before they kiss. But because it was technically unconfirmed I did put possible love interest. As for the height and weight, it's not likely there'll be a new series anytime soon, that could give us accompanying information, I did comparisons between her and all the other characters, she's by far the shortest member of the team. She'd be 5 foot 4 at the maximum, as for the ages, well before the start of season 1, sophie and Lok had been in the same class for 3 years, meaning they were likely Juniors, so their ages in season one are around the 16-18 range, and since sophie acts more mature than Lok I guessed she was a bit older. I won't edit again without permission but your thoughts? --Badmanbill (talk) 18:06, October 26, 2019 (UTC)

Re: TCG Card Templates

This should be fairly simple using the #switch parser function (I've previously worked on designing a template to switch between 13 sets of 3 colors based on region - link to source). This parser is normally only used for a single template parameter, but there may be a way to so a layered switch… It would basically need the syntax to work so that it would communicate for background-color:

  • if hero type = Legendary Hero, then #e8c144
  • otherwise, default to second #switch
    • if deck = Good, then #027cbf
    • if deck = Evil, then #d93142
    • otherwise, default to #027cbf

That said, I haven't tried nesting this function before. I'll run a quick test by using my MNW template header to see if this is going to be as easy as I think.

Mission cards should be easier to work with as that probably won't require using the #switch parser.

And it indeed works as suspected - Template:Infobox_hero_card/sandbox is a successs. Here's how using the two parameters will display (using moose and goose as terms that don't occur in either #switch parser):

Switch 1 (Override) moose
Switch 2 Parameter goose
Switch 1 (Override) Legendary Hero
Switch 2 Parameter goose
Switch 1 (Override) Legendary Hero
Switch 2 Parameter Good
Switch 1 (Override) Legendary Hero
Switch 2 Parameter Evil
Switch 1 (Override) moose
Switch 2 Parameter Good
Switch 1 (Override) moose
Switch 2 Parameter Evil

Implementing the code in the existing templates is the easy bit now, and it can switch between all 3 with ease. It's just a matter of updating the switch1 and switch2 parameters to hero type and deck, respectively, and the string of #switch parsers can be pasted over the existing background color. I've also updated the header colors ever so slightly in preparation for release so they'll be close to the card colors. LGS-001, LGS-006, and LGS-016 will represent how this works for hero cards. I've likewise updated the action cards template to use the #switch parser. The amulet cards template is only used for legendary items so has simply had a color overhaul. Both mission and feature cards templates have similarly been updated to about the same gray as the cards (see LGS-085). The background color of these templates has also been brought to more neutral coloration to better complement the header (whether red, blue, gold, or gray).

Re: New Navigation Tab Template

I'd incidentally considered something like that since, at present, the subpages have some form of navigation at the top, leaving the main page the odd one out. The NavTab format already includes the #ifexist parser used on the {{navigation}} template, which would have been my main concern before updating. I think this should be good to implement. ~ The Lhikan 634 (TaLk) Admin.svg 02:25, April 23, 2020 (UTC)

I've gone through and redirected some of our older templates to the {{navigation}} template to make sure everything keeps as consistent navigation as possible. There are a few lesser-used templates that I'll also see about updating to the tab format a bit later. ~ The Lhikan 634 (TaLk) Admin.svg 02:51, April 23, 2020 (UTC)

Huntik Fandom in Portuguese

Hi IlCthulu!I was wondering how to create a new language to Huntik Fandom, so I contacted a admin, because at this point I'm sure that only an admin can create a new language, I put more information about that in (the new langauge I want to create is European Portuguese)

Huntik Card Rarities

Hi IlCthulu. I have been changing some card rarities as I have all of the cards and am able to tell the rarities from looking at them and there are quite a lot of mistakes on the wiki. Also according to the back of the Seekers & Secrets packs "Mission" is actually its own rarity and includes mission, obstacle and feature cards. The back of this packs also states the number of Ultra Rare, Super Rare and Rare cards in the set which my list of rarities matches! I think having missions as their own rarity would be more intuitive as currently they are just listed as loads of random rarities. My username on Discord is Paraly5er#7957 if you want to add me so we can talk more in depth about this!

Not sure if I edited this correctly before, this is just to give you the notification so you can read my previous message.

Pages to delete

I moved all of the cards into categories labelled with a lower case c in cards as before they were split between lower and upper case. Because of this the 2 pages below are now useless and can be deleted but didn't want to do it without your permission / don't know how to do it.

New card scans

Scanned some cards for higher quality images to be used on the wiki.

I did it wrong last time so thought I'd let you do it so everything can be done correctly. Everything is listed so should be fairly easy to do.

Promo Scans

Unfortunately the promo cards are the only ones I don't have. I will scan them if I get any but they're very hard to find.

Re: 2021 Updates

I'd incidentally considered looking into something like that TCG Navigation Template years back when I was working on other areas of the TCG section, but I think I got burned out getting all of the file and page names standardized (several times). So of course it looks like it ended up being much easier to template than I was thinking. It looks good.

I've managed to get some decent results with using a tabber on another wiki / fandom, though that was just inserting it manually into the images parameter. I'd presume it could be done more directly using #ifexist since most of the files use standardized file names, which would mean only having to edit the template and not the pages themselves. It should also be possible to force the height with a white background box so the icon and Amulet images look like they have the same height. I never messed with it too much as the classic tabber was a bit difficult to get to look good (or at least to keep a uniform display).

Good to hear we have some official answers on card rarities. I think the original info was sourced from a few different Huntik fansites or forums, so that may also explain some of the inconsistencies. I'm not sure if we had anyone with physical access to the cards back then, and I recall a lot of material was cited to sites like ToyWiz.

A Portuguese wiki would be interesting to have set up. Probably my main caution is that non-English wikis / fandoms tend to get fewer editors, so there's a good likelihood that Paraly5er would end up being maybe 95% of the edits. There are a few wikis that are exceptions, though. It does get easy to become burned out as they can end up functioning less like a wiki and more like your own fansite. (I'm also reminded of my first days as a founder and nearly breaking the entire Magi-Nation Wiki due to a mis-coded template… though that was a solid 13 years ago by now!)

I have finished scanning all OAL and TIN cards. I have scanned all promos I have, should have more soon. I still need to finish scanning SAS and LGS. I also scanned the "Toy Cards" that I have, should have a couple more in a week or 2. Feel free to use the images on the wiki!
