  • It did it once a year ago briefly but now it's doing it again. Any clue as to why the Stat Calculator doesn't show up other than the text "Based on Stat Calculator script by Phate666x. Updated and adjusted for the Dead Frontier Wiki by Sovq."?

    • Ok, so I reverted to the edit you said was good and I've clicked on submit for review. I've also added the div piece inplace of the discontinued verbatim content.

      Is this correct? Thanks a lot for the help and sorry for getting to it so slowly, I've been quite busy these last few weeks.

  • Can you help me out with something? The clans list page has gone full retard for some reason. Any ideas on how to fix it?

  • Hey Sovq,

    There's been a suggestion made on DF's I&S board for the Wiki to include knockback values for all weapons. Seeing as you apparently knew how to access the DPS list for the game's weapons back in the Wiki's infancy, is there any way you could tell me whether there's any kind of list that provides knockback values for the game's weapons?

    Thanks!

  • Hi, Sovq.

    Theres a problem with the stat calculator on this wiki, but I have no idea how to fix it. Being the only editor of that page, I'm led to believe you might have a way of fixing this problem. (The sliders won't work)

    If you can, could you please get it working again? :)

    Thanks!

    ~ Shaun

    Hi,

    I was visiting the wiki to check something and noticed this thread. Wikia was recently tinkering with the DPL extension on their end. As a result, all the DPL queries across Wikia stopped working. On most such occasions doing a null edit (edit & save without making a change) will rebuild a DPL query to it's proper state.

    BTW: Great job you're doing here guys. I'm glad to see there still are editors who keep the wiki in shape :)


    No Problem
    No problem, Sovq. Glad to see you're still breathing. =D

    BTW, I've taken over managing the polls since you left, and since I didn't want to mess with moving all the Wiki Polls information from your blog to another page, I just put in the new polls on your original blog page. Hope that's alright with you.

  • I have selected one active user to be admin for a limited amount of time to test his ability. I don't want sysop rights to fall into the wrong hand, even if he looks super nice to me. Now, what do you think of the qualities a Wiki admin should have? And can you train him to be better?

    • I guess the main role of an admin is to ensure that the wiki runs smoothly and rules are enforced. To do that, one only needs to be active enough and willing to patrol the recent changes on a wiki regularly and delete/revert edits when necessary. Other stuff, like adding and updating content or making skin/functionality tweaks are of secondary importance. Administrators should always remember that they're just trusted users with a few extra buttons and not the "owners" of a wiki or "the law".

      I'm not really sure what you mean by training an admin to be better. A newbie admin can find pretty much all of the important tips on the help pages (that's how I learned the ropes). The rest is just being active and willing to keep the wiki in good shape.

  • Hi Sovq,


    In the frontpage, in Content > Useful tools, could you please replace the link text:

    Fairview GPS by Nilte

    with:

    Dead Frontier GPS - real time position & intel of the game's map


    The reasonning behind is that change:

    1- I don't seem to have the rights to edit it

    2- would prefer to advocate the use of the tool is rather than who made it

      Loading editor
    • I'm sorry Nilte, but I'm not longer an admin on the wiki and thus can't edit the main page template as well.

    • Is not being an admin any more a choice of yours?

      Would you have a name of an active admin you could point me to?

      Can't find a link to navigate to a page displaying the admin list.

        Loading editor
    • Yes, it was my choice - I lost interest in the game, so I thought it wouldn't be fair if I remained an admin here.

      You can find a full list of administrators here. I think Insert Your Name Here is still active enough to be able to help.

        Loading editor
    • I understand.

      Thank you for having taken the time to answer. I will try my luck with Insert Your Name Here.

  • I have noticed that there has been several quirks on the wikia; unnecessary information, vandalism and outdated info to name a few. Adding to the situation, the wikia staff seems to be dwindling in numbers and activity.

    I have experience in wikia editing and moderation since I was an active contributor on the Avatar wikia and I would like to offer my helping hand on maintaining this wikia. Can you bestow upon me the title of Wikia Administrator? I would like to be of service to the people of Dead Frontier by maintaining our database of public information.

    • You asked this question right after I revoked my own rights, heh, and under regular circumstances I wouldn't be able help out.

      Seeing as as of today, the wiki is without an active admin, I'm happy you'd like to pick it up. I've given you admin rights and I wish you good luck in keeping the wiki in good shape :)

    • Congratulations Ace! And thanks for letting me useing clan content from S.H.A.D.O.W.

      I hope that one day I'll be experienced enough in wiki editing and modarating to join you in helping progress and keep this wiki clean. I still have lots to learn though.

    • I've blocked all the offending accounts. In the future, you can easily revert a page to its proper state, simply by visiting the page's history, clicking on the date of the last good revision and editing&saving the article.

      thank you so much is there anything we can do to prevent this? its been happening repeatedly for the past weeks , it will be easyer for them to get back if they make a new account again wont it?

    • The offending IPs have been blocked, so it doesn't matter if they create a new account or not - they're still blocked. However, there are ways around blocks, so if the vandal is determined enough, it might take more time to effectively block him.
