For now, do you think we could leave the content and just remove the link? 'Cause we can't have a link to a dating site on every major page. We could decide later if we need to remove the content that was being cited.
Hey, Felinoel! I reached out to Flambo about getting the Adventure Time interview from SDCC 2015 promoted and he said that you handle all the newsletter stuff. Do you think we could get the interview featured on the current/next newsletter edition?
Hey, you seem like the top bureaucrat around here (any other admins can feel free to respond if they see this). I'm with the Community Development team. Would you guys be interested in letting us run a promotional event on here? We wanted to do an Adventure Time personality quiz sponsored by Trolli to hype up the community. You guys wouldn't have to do anything and we won't post stuff without your permission, I'm just checking to see if this is something you guys would be interested in.
Sponsored by Trolli?
If it is sponsored by them then would prefer to limit it to just the Candy People?
Also what exactly would the process be for creating this personality quiz? While I am not complaining that you guys have things made for us it is just that some of the last things made for us that did not involve the wiki community tended to miss out on a lot of information that just made it seem like it could have been better...
Also also, ATG he said, "seem like the top bureaucrat," not that I am.
Nah, sponsored content usually isn't that specific.
I am writing the content for this quiz and I would absolutely be open to suggestions. Maybe you guys want to talk in Special:Chat or something? It has to be in by the end of the day, but I'm open to any input you guys might have. If it helps to hear, I am a huge Adventure Time fan and I keep up-to-date with the series.
I would have loved to include more weird characters. I had some funny ideas for a line of questions that would lead to the Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant. They decided on something that only has four characters though. also: We're planning on hosting it here at the URL Adventure Time Personality Quiz if that's alright with you guys.
Hey there! Coming to you again with another fun thing we want to do with Adventure Time Wiki...fan facts! We did something like this a while back called 21 Ways to Save the Day which you might remember, but here is the link if you want to check it out :) We want to do something similar with Adventure Time, but this time we want fans to submit all the weird facts/trivia they know about Adventure Time!
If we post a blog about it on this wikia, could we do the same promotion as last time with community messages and something through the newsletter? I would also still love some kind of main page promotion for this, but that's something for all the admins to agree on :) Let me know what you think and if it's alright for us to host it on this community!
Hello again! The blog is now live: User blog:Gcheung28/10 Weirdly Awesome Facts about Adventure Time - as I mentioned, we would really love to get the word out to the community like we did with giveaway via community message / newsletter / main page promotion if we can. Just trying to give everyone the chance to participate if they'd like to, and not just the few who have happened upon the blog so far. Please let me know! :)
Hey, Felinoel, long time no talk! I'm reaching out because we’d like to run an Adventure Time contest on this wiki called ‘Show Your Snow.’ Basically, fans in snow covered areas would send in pictures of them having fun/playing around/being annoyed by the snow. They can be as creative and crazy as they want. If they’re not in a snow-filled area, they could do ‘Show Your Sun’ where they share a picture of them having fun in the sun. Bonus: we have prizes! The details are still being hashed out, but I think people will be into it and wanted to get the okay from you to host it on this wikia.
No worries! Another admin happened to respond to me elsewhere saying that she preferred Community Messages over the banner so I added it this morning. Any further promotion you can think of would be great! This contest needs some help :)
Hey, Felinoel! We're running some programming right now that asks people to pick their favorite character's skills or power and explain how they would save the day with it. I posted this blog explaining it with a link to the actual program, but I think it might be fun for Adventure Time fans! I was just wondering if you could help us promote it on this wikia? Let me know, thanks!
I'm a rollback from the Steven Universe Wiki, and we were thinking about designing our own newspaper like yours. Someone was supposed to do the templates for us, but he left the wiki unexpectedly, so we're having a bit of trouble with the templates. So, would you mind telling our only active admin about the templates?
PS: If you aren't good with templates, give me a link to someone on this wiki who's good with them.
I've realized that every image I posted are all jpg images, whereas other people are able to post png images. I need some help, because I want to post png images. If you are going to reply, I think you should do so on my message wall.
.png images are preferred because they are usually of higher quality. Converting the .jpg images you already uploaded to .png will only inflate the file size, and possibly even deteriorate the image quality. I think you should just keep them.
.jpg images are much, much smaller in size and are still of decent quality, imo.
Not to mention .jpg and .gif files are extremely low quality. .png files can also be transparent, whereas .jpg cannot be. Transparent images are best for this wiki. Gameuser is right, you upload .png files the same way you upload .jpg files. You can use an online converter to go from .jpg to .png. ♣♥Make her a memberof the Midnight Crew♦♠ 19:19, December 17, 2014 (UTC)
When I am trying to upload a jpg photo on the wiki, it says that file extension ".$1" does not match the detected MIME type of the file ($2) when I tried to change it into a png file, does that means that it cost money to change the file?
You can't use a photo of one filetype to replace one of another filetype. You can upload it into the same name, and have somebody delete the jpg, but that's extremely tedious for everyone involved. Also, converting it with MS Paint is a bad idea. The quality of the photo pretty much worsens, and you're better off finding a different image. Online converters are better IMO. ♣♥Make her a memberof the Midnight Crew♦♠ 12:44, December 18, 2014 (UTC)
What does this means? Should I convert it with MS Paint or not? I have been trying to find png files and uploading here but all of them ended up to be in jpg. How do you guys find so many images for one episode, anyway? I am starting to wonder that...Did you take the photo yourself or find it in some place???
Did you know that approximately half of the visits across Wikia are coming from mobile devices? To support that mobile traffic, Wikia is creating iOS and Android apps that focus exclusively on individual communities. We are happy to inform you that Adventure Time Wiki has been selected to receive a dedicated community app. This means that you will have an app exclusively for your community that you, the admins, can curate!
Check out this help page that will explain how and where to manage your content in your community app, and also ways to promote your Community App on your own community.
If you have any questions about the Community App itself, how to manage content on it, or how to promote it, please write in to Special:Contact. Thanks for being an exceptional community! Good luck with the app!
Nice! I'm going to go through to try and get things started, but feel free to edit it yourself if there are things on the community you would want to see featured on the app :) Other admins are welcome to edit too!
So we have been discussing this app and some of us were surprised to see that the chat is not a feature on our app page nor on many other Wikia apps that are currently out there.
They feel that the chat is a place for the community to get together and this app is a great way to bring more community to our site and seem pretty disappointed to not find a connection to the chat page?
No worries, we actually are already working on this feature for the apps :) I'm not sure what the timeline is, but I believe a few apps will be selected to test a chat feature out and then hopefully it will get rolled out to the other communities sometime next year.
