Is the Star Wars Diplomacy site down?--Dakkoth 19:27, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Yes, yes it is.Itake 08:21, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

RPG's?Edit

Is this site about all Star Wars games or just Diplomacy and RPG's? supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 06:54, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

No it's not. It can be about any game, it's simply that the only articles that have been written have been about RPGs.--Herbsewell 15:14, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
  • it's funny that used to be the case, now were kicking the RPGs and diplomacy stuff into a seperat wikia :) HunterjUraiFenHunterj's Palace 13:17, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

VandalismEdit

I don't know if this is vandalism or not, but you should check out some of the pages that User:Cull Tremayne has made. It includes Star Wars: The Secret of Monkey Island, Termites, Chicken, Petroleum jelly and my favorite, Gynecology. I certainly hope that this isn't the same Cull Tremayne from Wookieepedia (who is an administrator)! supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 08:21, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

  • I didn't make Termites or Chicken. And I was just filling redlinks for the other ones. If they were fanon, I apologize, but they had been added on other pages. Cull Tremayne 08:26, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Also, you can't use SUBST here since it's a separate site. You need to just sign your name like everyone else. I was just copying my user page to represent what Quinlanfan had. Cull Tremayne 08:28, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Sense of humor check on aisle 9... hello... nope, I guess not. Oh well. And how dare Supergeeky1 give credit where credit is not due to Cull Tremayne about many of these pages. Most were the brain child of the super cool Judge Fudge and his trusty steed Lewis. whoa... easy boy...

I am calling you out good sir or ma'am. Judge Fudge

    • I'm deeply, deeply sorry! I thought he was the one who created them. And, wikis are not the place for a sense of humor! Some of those pages should be removed! supergeeky1 09:22, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
      • P.S.--I obviously do have a sense of humor to be called supergeeky1! supergeeky1 09:33, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
    • Oh no, it's my mistake. Your name is sooo funny. why didn't I realize that before? "Supergeeky1" Aha... aha... ahahahahaha!!!! Simply brilliant. Your comic genius truly astounds. You have much to teach us good sir or ma'am. I'm gonna need surgery for my busted gut... "Supergeeky1"...terriffic...terriffic.

Judge Fudge

      • You my friend are getting on my nerves! I wasn't serious about being called supergeeky1! And like I said before, wikis aren't even the place for humor! You oughta learn that before you start creating pages about things that aren't even Star Wars related! supergeeky1 11:06, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
        • I've had to fix a lot of vandalism by User:Judge Fudge. He does not belong on here, nor does he belong on any wiki. I'm deeply, deeply sorry for accusing you Cull Tremayne of these acts by this good sir or ma'am! You didn't deserve that! He needs to be blocked! supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 12:13, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
          • So is he gonna be banned? I say, give him a day or two and see if he starts "contributing" again. Besides, he's far to busy to edit on here, because he's... being delicious, according to him. supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 19:37, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

TemplatesEdit

I have created a few templates, in which some are located here. Keep in mind, I couldn't find all of the templates, so feel free to add the ones you find. supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 11:47, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Edit

The new logo seriously sucks. I honestly believe the old logo was 10x better. This logo is a bunch of newbness rolled up into one package. Professionalism is what should be the goal here, not...well I can't think of anything positive about the new logo...but you get the idea. Unsigned comment by Brentpowell (talk • contribs).

  • Why are you making such a big deal about it? I'll revert it. supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 20:58, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
  • Because I really get annoyed with noob graphics. Its a pet peeve of mine. --Brent Powell 21:09, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
  • Yeah, the logo is terribly newb. Mine was definetly 10x better. But if it's the name you like changed, then I'll fix the old one, because it's tons better. Who even made this logo, because whoever did, needs to learn Photoshop, BADLY.

--Brent Powell 06:07, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

    • I decided to go ahead and make a new logo using ideas I had previously tried but to no avail. And after going back and seeing the old one I had made, damn. I never realized it looked that bad. supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 16:19, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Wikia Gaming footerEdit

Would it be possible for you to add the following footer to the Main Page?

Wikia Gaming IRC Channel

We're trying to get Wikia's gaming wikis more linked with each other. It's not mandatory, but it would be appreciated :). You can change the links to point to any other gaming wikias you like or cooperate with. Ausir 17:40, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

  • Sure, no problem at all. I saw this not long ago on the LOTRO Wiki, and meant to put it up before. Thanks. :D supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 22:15, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
  • I think Other gaming wikis from Wikia should be above Official Friends of SWGames, and Official Friends of SWGames should be at the very bottom. Just my opinion. LethalReflex 18:31, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Is the template: Wikia's Star Wars Wikis really necessary? It seems to make the main page look like it's cluttered with templates. LethalReflexRC-12072Commlink 22:53, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
    • It makes the bottom of the page look like we're just adding templates for templates' sake, yes, but I think we should have it somewhere. Maybe if we tweaked the gaming template and the Star Wars Wikis template so that each only takes half the width of the page and juxtaposed them it would look better.--Ryluk Shouja(The Mukhabarat|Contribs|Other) 07:00, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Main page color design Edit

Click on this link and let your eyes burn. -PanSola 22:30, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

  • Well thats what they get for not using mono book, the quartz view is so anowying it places the page to the side and give so much room to links and stuff you get 5 words per line in the supposed "main" part of the page. However monobook is nice, it has the page right dead center in the main part and has it as the biggest thing and has all the links on the left where links normally are and ads on right were they are. The quartz whould be cool if it wasn't for that. And its really anowying if your not loged in wookiepedia looks like that. Though without the blinding white on white with light blue links. LightningSmile Fell SkyhawkBoss Debriefing RoomStar Map22:55, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
  • I agree with Fell. LethalReflexRC-12072Commlink 00:42, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
    • "MY EYES!!! MY EYES!!!" Well, not being a fan of the new skins, that looks God aweful. But at any rate, as I had promised Darthipedia, I plan on cutsomizing the quartz look, just the same as Wookieepedia did. supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 16:19, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
  • That quartz skin is horrid, the rest are great as by using Special:Widgets you can customize what link you see, I've got recent changes (mini list), who recently edited this page, and top uses list, in order of most edits. HunterjJet trooperHunterj's Palace 13:16, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Main Page protection Edit

Hullo! I am Kirkburn, your friendly local Wikia Gaming Helper!

May I suggest that the Main Page (and other such pages) are unlocked so they can be edited by registered users, as per the Wikia:Protection policy. Pages should only really be completely protected if they are the focus of active vandalism, otherwise you can do more damage by only allowing one or two users to keep it up to date, which may not be enough. Kirkburn (talk) 18:31, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Well there are like about seven of us (who are quite active) that can edit the main page, and I don't that is too little. That's just me though. LethalReflexRC-12072Commlink 19:32, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
    • The reason we have it protected is because it's such a large target for vandalism. Additionally, the way the page is layed out, there's really very little reason for non-admins to edit it, anyway. That being said, I think we're going to keep it the way it is for the time being. Thank you very much. Cheers! :D supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 20:21, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
    • Yes, there are also many non-admins who give input to the main page through talking to us and through gamers council meetings, the parts such as the did you know section can be edited from a seperate location as well so ther is little that could be cahnged anyway. HunterjHunterjHunterj's Palace 20:55, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Wikia Gaming IRC channel Edit

Hullo! I am Kirkburn, your friendly local Wikia Gaming Helper!

You may be interested to know there is a Wikia gaming IRC channel, #wikia-gaming on chat.freenode.net, where you can hop on, ask for help from users of other gaming wikis, or offer your own experiences. If you are not familiar with IRC clients, you can access it from http://irc.wikia.com/gaming.

Different people may be on sporadically, but we organize weekly chats at a fixed time so we can get the most number of people online at the same time to ask and answer questions, or just to hang out. The admins of some of Wikia's biggest gaming wikis (e.g. WoW, Halo) often attend them. You can find the time for the next chat by following this link.


If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me! Kirkburn (talk) 11:09, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Firefly Design Group Edit

Hey, I've recently become involved with a group called Firefly, we are currently getting others to link to us and in turn link to them. I think we(SWGames) should link to us(Firefly).

What the group is is a 3d modelling group making models for various people. Mainly with the intent of making models for game mods.

Oasis backgroundEdit

That bloody background on the Oasis skin is horrifying. I couldn't tell you if the Monobook background is any less blinding (Mainly because I don't particularly care enough to create an account), but that's still something you guys might wanna take care of if you expect to gain any new users. 186.194.7.179 18:34, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

  • Honestly, I agree. I had to go back to using Monobook because of the awful Wikia design. Someone should definitely fix that. I've been gone from SWGames for a few years, and I'm really disappointed about how the new administration has changed things. I wish the old admins were still around. =/ Miss Katy (talk) 07:09, April 25, 2013 (UTC)
