User rights change request

Reedembot(talkcontribslogsblock log) <-- requesting User rights to Bot rights (congrats User:ReedemtheD3ad on getting a bot!) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 00:11, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

I already requested this change to Equazcion as only Gamepedia Staff members can change user rights. Thanks. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 00:15, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for requesting ahead of time, I know many other bots which got requested way later in their services than this one... —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 15:26, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

Protection requests

Since these are pretty complex, important templates/pages, can they be protected? (below)

My whole page looks like this

It's super basic looking and i cant sort anything by what i want it to and pictures wont load 99% of the time. https://i.imgur.com/y1ju2Fr.pngϟXtremeGaming7000ϟtalk 20:29, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

That looks like the mobile view. There should be a link at the bottom of the page to switch to desktop view. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 21:36, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

Duplicate items in the CargoExport

Hi, I'm writing a item browsing tool and using the Cargo Export tool on this wiki for source data. So far it's wokrking well.. however I've noticed a lot of items come up twice... See:


If you expand that fields list to include more data, you'll see that its not only hammerpower and damage that are unpopulated in the 2nd entry.

Am I doing something wrong/stupid with the CargoExport query or is there something funky with the source data? Overall, I see ~920 duplicate rows across the entire dataset...

Parsing done. Saving 3858 items.

Hi, I am the one who set up Cargo on this Wiki. The Cargo tables pull data from Infoboxes and whatnot, but unfortunately, not all the data is stored for each entry in one place and as such, the table needs multiple entries to obtain the complete data. When the data is needed, all of the values that are needed are pulled which may come from multiple entries. I can try to see if it is possible to merge the entries, but keep in mind that the primary purpose is for use on the wiki which is working fine, not for creating browsing tools. Perhaps what you want is rather to do a cargo query and save that information rather than exporting the raw data. See how Item IDs and List of weapons are done, and you may be able to achieve the result you want. Please experiment in your own userspace as to not disturb the mainspace of the wiki. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 06:24, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

The new design sucks

Whoever thought it would be be a good idea to make 60% of the page whitespace should be banished to the shadow realm. I'm sick of devs forcing mobile layouts onto desktop users. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 15:16, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Mobile view is an option that can be toggled at the bottom of any page on the site. There should be a link that says "Desktop" that will take you back to the Desktop view. If this is not the case, please provide a screenshot so we may have a better idea of what you are seeing. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:34, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

GamePedia Ad Blocks Content

Lately I've been having a problem with the GamePedia advertisement on the right hand side of the page blocking text in the wiki, and even more irritating, blocking the columns of tables. Is there an easy way to get rid of the ad, or is this something that must be addressed in the formatting of the pages? 00:01, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Can you take a screenshot, so we can see what it looks like? – Ferretwings (talk) 01:47, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
The Sidebar ads can be really annoying, but if tables are "covered", there should be a scroll bar at the bottom. It is inconvenient though. If you have a Twitch Account, I recommend logging in. Logged in users do not see the sidebar ads. If there are any other places where content is covered, or the scroll bar is not present, please let us know. – ReedemtheD3ad!

Easy way to get rid of ads... adblock (ublockorigin) --Leonord cursetalk」 00:11, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Although this is true, we do want to support the platform. I for one disable ad blockers for Gamepedia, even though I have had PRO for ages. Ads only at the bottom of the page (and in the sidebar, like they already do, those do not do anything with the page width/height etc anyways) would be a better and more permanent solution than having ads to the side, as ads at the bottom do not push any content away.--Tymon80 (talk) 01:45, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
I'm not quite sure how to add a screen shot. I found the scroll bar at the bottom of the tables, and you are right, it is very inconvenient. For example, if I look at the Hardmode Armour table, I scroll all the way to the bottom of the table, then scroll the table to the right so I can see the right hand column, then scroll up to look at the armour set I am interested in, and cannot find it as the armour type names are now scrolled out of view on the left. It would be less inconvenient for shorter tables of course. Another place where this appears is on the Walkthrough page - the coloured boxed sections about the specific biomes will have items listed that are covered by the advertisement, and the text explaining how to deal with the biome will be cut off on the right. One thing I have found is to decrease the zoom level in my browser, which will make the tables smaller and pull them out from under the advertisement. I will consider signing up for an account, but changing browser zoom level down to 75% or signing up for an account is a workaround. Thanks for your ideas. 14:46, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

Page creation denied.

I recently tried creating the page Outposts, however the automatic language filter for page titles decided that outposts is not an english word. I have cancelled the creation of the page and saved my text in a .txt file on my computer. Please help. Kwonunn (talk) 21:11, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Seems a mistake was made in the latest change to the filter. I've fixed it now. Luckily it seems this was the only problematic false positive. --0icke0 (talk) 23:20, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Westgrass Bot has broken all "Used In" sections for items

The Used In section for almost every page appears empty now, e.g. Soul of Fright, Soul of Might, Avenger Emblem, etc. these changes have been caused by Westgrass Bot —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 23:19, 10 November 2018

There is a caching issue. I am currently running my bot to purge the cache of all affected pages. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 07:39, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
