Javascript woes[edit]

Hey. There have been a few difficulties with our scripts lately. Mostly in the sense of scripts that used to be running weren't running any more. I changed some things, and now almost everything is up, except for the MediaWiki:PikipediaUpload.js script. From the little that I can gather, Common.js isn't even running on Special:Upload. What can you tell me about this? — {EspyoT} 09:09, 6 November 2016 (EST)

Fixed it! --Porplemontage (talk) 11:48, 6 November 2016 (EST)
Looks like every script is working perfectly. Thank you so much! — {EspyoT} 12:02, 6 November 2016 (EST)


Im curious what the first edit on this Wiki was. On what page was it? TabuuandPeach MarchShroomCertificateA.jpg 18:28, 24 November 2016 (EST)

Well, I guess this was the first non-bot edit. --Porplemontage (talk) 22:34, 24 November 2016 (EST)

Mobile captcha problems[edit]

Hey. A user found a problem while editing the wiki under mobile: link. Basically, when trying to save, the wiki asks for a "confirmation code" (captcha, I'm guessing?) but there's no such thing anywhere.

It doesn't look like this is anon-user triggered, since anonymous users can't even edit the wiki under mobile. That's also another thing – since under desktop, users can edit without an account, why can't they under mobile? If you could make anons able to edit under mobile, that'd be great, but if not, don't sweat it. I think it's more important to have the code problem solved. Me and Marty also tried to edit using smartphones, but we were never asked for such a code, so maybe this only applies to non-autoconfirmed users.

Oh, and a final thing. Do you mind if I send the older conversations here into an archive subpage? Your talk page is getting pretty heavy! — {EspyoT} 15:23, 27 December 2016 (EST)

Ok yeah, it looks like the captcha extension and mobile extension aren't playing well together. You're correct, autoconfirmed users would skip it, but now I've made it so all users skip it. We do need the captcha for anons though, so we can't enable mobile anon editing. Archive away! --Porplemontage (talk) 15:43, 27 December 2016 (EST)
Sounds good. Thanks a million! — {EspyoT} 17:18, 28 December 2016 (EST)

Parse error on Pikmin Fanon[edit]

Hey there Porple. Pikmin Fanon has been unavailable for over 24 hours because of a parse error, which reads:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ';', expecting ')' in /home/pikminfa/public_html/LocalSettings.php on line 384

I thought if I gave it time, it would go away on its own, but... Could you resolve this? Thanks. ~PikFan23 16:58, 29 January 2017 (EST)

Fixed it, thanks! --Porplemontage (talk) 16:59, 29 January 2017 (EST)

Unpatrollable uploads[edit]

Hey. If an image is uploaded, and then a new version is uploaded on top, it'll become impossible to mark the first revision as patrolled. You can find examples on the recent changes with the farthest filter. Do you think you can do something about this glitch so that it doesn't happen again? Thanks! — {EspyoT} 15:06, 14 February 2017 (EST)

This is a bug that would need to be fixed in MediaWiki core, where we'd get the fix in a future software update. I've reported it here - we'll see what happens! --Porplemontage (talk) 15:49, 14 February 2017 (EST)
Ah! Thought so. One thing though...right now, the recent changes are filled with edits about how this or that revision has been marked patrolled, and all edits also seem to have become unpatrolled now. What...exactly happened? — {EspyoT} 04:01, 15 February 2017 (EST)
Well, I rebuilt recent changes to see if those unpatrollable log entries would go away. Turned out it had some adverse effects - sorry! --Porplemontage (talk) 15:21, 15 February 2017 (EST)
Oops. Oh well, at least they look like they're working fine from here on out. Thanks! — {EspyoT} 03:57, 16 February 2017 (EST)
Hello! I see that you are an active admin. Could you tell me more about Pikipedia? While you read this, can I ask for my admin rights to change from user to admin? GoldenAxe (talk) 12:42, 13 February 2019 (EST)

I’m the real you![edit]

Believe me, I’m the real you! See my username? That’s the proof! — Porqlemontage (talk) 16:44, September 19, 2020 (EDT)

Anything I need to know?[edit]

Greetings, Porplemontage. I am a Patroller of WiKirby. Currently, I am busy with multiple things there and elsewhere. However, in the near future, I may consider becoming more active around here. I'm familiar with editing wikis, but I know some wikis are quite different from each-other, regarding policies and such. That is why I've come to ask you if there is anything basic I need to know before I edit Pikipedia, and where the best place to get started is. -- MetaDragon (talk) 20:55, December 3, 2020 (EST)

Recent MediaWiki change[edit]

Shouldn't MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning only discuss specifically written content being released under (I beleive) CC-BY-SA 3.0U, as files and other media are generally uploaded with their own specific licensing? Trig - 22:06, February 1, 2021 (EST)

The CC-BY-SA license applies to written content, so the warning is shown below the edit box, where written content is added. It's not shown on the file upload page since those licenses are different. --Porplemontage (talk) 22:12, February 1, 2021 (EST)

Pikmin Fanon CSS[edit]

Hello Porple, I was wondering if you could help me making Pikmin Fanon's layout share a similarity with Pikipedia in that pages are displayed in a smaller rectangular box, while the background is displayed in the columns on either side of the article space. In Pikmin Fanon's current state, the article area runs all the way to the edge of the browser. I wanted to make it more like Pikipedia in order for Pikmin Fanon to look better on higher resolution monitors, like, say an ultrawide monitor. Thanks in advance! Wraith (Talk) 15:03, July 14, 2021 (EDT)

Hi there! I made a change so that similar to here, the right-side margin matches that of the left on wider displays. --Porplemontage (talk) 16:05, July 14, 2021 (EDT)
Thanks for the help! Much appreciated. I might want to make some more aesthetic changes in the future, but I am not sure yet of what nature. Wraith (Talk) 16:29, July 14, 2021 (EDT)
