Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I'll be at G-Fest this weekend and I won't be back and editing on Ultra Series Wiki until Tuesday next week. (I'll be out between July 9th through the 13th) If you could pass this message on to the other admins of Ultra Series wiki to check in on the wiki to make sure no one starts spamming or wasting pages on here, it would be greatly appreciated until I get back.
There's something about this new layout for wikia that looks awful. Am I the only on who agrees? It looked bad on the Tardis Data Probe and it looks awful for Kamen Rider wiki. The infoboxes and everything look non-proportional to each other, text is awfully huge. Is this like a mandatory skin change from wikia?
Would it be possible to set up a testing wiki so I can experiment on it with some ideas that I have? It would definitely be a lot safer as it's just a testing grounds for new implementations and suggestions for coding.
I've got a more streamlined version for multi-images for infoboxes that can be used in conjunction with the tabber to create less clutter. The only thing is that to have it, the MediaWiki:Common.js has to have additional coding for it, but I think the lack of clutter makes it look nice. What's your thoughts?
I'm not a fan of it. It's easy to get confused if you don't know how the switch template works. I get that it has the same functionality - but I think in the wrong situation it can be easily confusing. I prefer the tabber inside a tabber look because then you at least know visually what goes with what.
Personally I figured that this switch thing works like the tabber but doesn't shrink the image to fit in borders, thus being a graphical improvement. But Tim's right, this should have been discussed first, and if that auto-update thing was unintended, I'm going to have no choice but to revert the changes, since that would mean you copied over too much code from another wiki (and if it is from another wiki and not dev.wikia.com, then it should be credited) and I don't know what code does what.
That's fine. It was an experiment that was supposed to be removed or considered depending on your thoughts. Though, I agree that it's a bit jarring. The syntax for switch isn't exactly friendly compared to tabber which is relatively easier.
I was just exploring other alternatives to tabber infoboxes. The auto-refresh was also something I was looking into so I don't refresh the page as often.
I have rollbacked my additions to the Common.js because this alternative switch template only works on desktop browser versions. The mobile versions are completely unusable. Sorry for the inconvenience, won't do changes that might damage the wiki without consulting.
Is there a method of contacting you both relatively quicker than Wikia? Like through Skype?
Sorry to bring up these people again, but I figured you (and the other admins on here) should know that the people on Ultra Wiki are considering on copying the format of those scene on a Kamen Rider wiki (which I assume to be this one...)
Well, actually I am one of the admins of Ultraman Wiki but this guy anyway tried to replicate several of the toku hub's method to that wiki. I did tried to block him for three years but still, User Teridax122 told me not to do that.
Even if we are rivals but still, I do respect that informations cannot be plagiarized.
Those are minor cosmetic parameter changes and hardly plagiarism, considering sections like "appearances list", "voice actor" and "actor" are used on many television related wikis and certainly not the invention of the toku hub.
PS: I would hardly consider the Ultraseries wiki to be a rival. No insult intended there, but..
I am not going to allow discussion of, or get into, the intricacies of why Ultra Wiki is no longer in the hub. The removal was necessary and justified, and Ultraseries is its replacement in the hub, under our control. Given that they are no longer in the hub, Ultra Wiki can do whatever it wants provided it leaves us all alone. Its editors can even edit both wikis (if they wish), provided they abide by our rules on our wiki. That said, it is unwise for its leadership to allow plagiarism of our content when it is now explicitly forbidden, and absolutely so without our permission.
The question is, however - was what was used our creation, or is it simply a modification of generic code as Stephan mentions? Therein lies the difference. If it is the former, it needs to be removed as plagiarism as we will not authorize its use. If it is the latter, then it is allowed to exist.

We're not going to invite the drama to KR Wiki, Thermo. Thus we're not going to discuss that.
