Page Issue

I was trying to fix ToonTask:ToonTask_capacity_(The_Brrrgh), but for some reason, the page keeps adding an extra summary bit and then screws up the formatting. Even after fixing it, it reverts it back and removes the |- needed to keep the task templates at the right. I'm at a loss as to what I'm doing wrong, can you please help?

Photo Removal

Sorry to bother you again, but would you mind removing a photo entiled Benny McBounce.png? I realized that I uploaded the wrong photo but I can't remove it. Sorry for the trouble.

About the Dialogue

I have joined the game recently by... other means that cannot be mentioned by site rules. So the dialogue is straight from the source. Basically I run the game in one window and type the word balloons in another window like Notepad. It is pretty difficult to do because I have to do it very quickly or the word balloons would go away. Moreover, I have to do it when there are no other toons in the buidling or I'd stall them from continuing their toontasks.

Aside from all that, they are straight from the game itself. I am doing Oldman's final gag track task at the moment so anytime I speak to an NPC, I use this method. I hope that helps!

Eh, if that's the way you feel, then I'll refrain from posting future dialogue. But quite honestly, it looks like absolutely nothing has changed and there's little to no reason for them to even change it in the first place. I'll confirm this later by talking to the heads of the private server I got this from and see for myself, but until then there will be no dialogue additions.

/Antwan\

Alright, I have talked with some users over Reddit and one of them can confirm that there are spelling errors properly fixed while another claims that the toontask tutorial has been reworked slightly. With that said, there are definitely some changes; no dialogue from here on out. Sorry for the trouble.

/Antwan\

02:05, November 29, 2014 (UTC)

Not a problem. And don't worry, I constantly double check anything that I get from these servers with old Toontown vids and screenshots. Most of my findings are straight from videos, screenshots, and supplementary material before the shutdown.

Wiki header

Hi Loving,
Since you seem to be the admin who's last been active, and since the new global header was added to all wikis' i thought it wouldn't be harm to give you the code for updating the wiki header image, if you're interested. Anyway, the current code from MediaWiki:Wikia.css is:

.WikiaHeader {
              background-image:url(http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/toontown/images/6/6f/TTHeader.png) !important;
}

And for updating it would need to be replaced with:

nav#globalNavigation {
              background-image: url('http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/toontown/images/6/6f/TTHeader.png');
}

However, there are 2 problems with it:

  • The image is too small in height and might need an update.
  • the gray text parts might need to be made darker per the contrast of the background. This can also be done with additional CSS.

Just thought it might help :)

Thank You

hey,

just wanted to leave a thanks for working on this wiki so much. it looks really good and though toontown is gone for good these pages are still really helpful and stuff. only thing is that on the gag pages it says "minimum amount carried" or whatever and idk what that's supposed to mean.

just a big thank you from someone who knows how hard it is to run a wiki, lol

- MonEspritLibre

Re: Re: Thank You

haha. i had to learn how to wiki all by my lonesome self, lol.

ohhh, i get it. i just hadn't checked any of the early level gag pages and was like it's just the same as the max carry capacity haha

The policy

Hi Loving,
I wanted to talk with you about the policy, in specific, the private servers policy. Since every week at least once someone mentions private servers, mostly without even mentioning a private server's name, i thought something should be done about it, and the least i can do is to contact you about this.
In the wiki rules, as you probabl know well, this category is classified as "Illegal services are banned". This definition, however, may be questionable, since, as long as a private server does not use Disney's content in any way for having profits of any sorts, and does not accept donation, the only authority authorized to declare it as "illegal" is a US court. Hoever, i'm not here for discussing the legal status of these servers, so that's kinda irrelevant. Most wikis, of course, go by policy in addition to the ToU, such as this wiki, and i respect that and have no intention in causing troubles to an wiki, but i strongly believe that the current version of the policy regarding private servers probably required some extra thoughts, since it results in several serious problems.
The first one, while this wiki is about Disney's Toontown Online, and not about private servers, it's reasonable to forbid creating articles about private servers or private servers-related content, or maybe completely not mentioning them in the mainspace. However, illegal or not, completely forbidding discussions about private servers, regardless of their context and purpose, is a big problem when it come for freedom of speech, about discussing wiki topics, or suggesting ideas for improving the community and wiki design.
The other reason why i contact you about this specific wiki rule, is since, i'm sure, the vast majority of users here uses private servers, including any admin who's been here since 2013. What i'm saying here, is that as private servers are very popular nowadays, and many online communities about them exist, there is a great opportunity for collaboration for expanding the wiki and suggesting ideas for improvements, which, unfortunately, are not possible as long as private servers are a taboo in the wiki. Even though all of the rumors about Disney releasing or selling TT, by the time it happens and if it happens, there would still be a limit for how much new info can be added to the wiki, since the amount of missing information isn't getting longer, and the amount of data that can be obtained from TTO files is also limited. Already there are active wikis about private servers, and we all basically have the same core interest- editing stuff about toontown- and it is a great chance to share information between these communities, as many of that info is not just about private servers, but also about TTO.
So, that's pretty much it. I'm sorry for making this message kinda long, but i believe that writing it is extremely important, and would like you admins, and perhaps even the community members, to examine the wiki rules again, regarding private servers.
Penguin-Pal (talk) 15:49, February 25, 2015 (UTC)

Hi there. Both Penny and I share the same stance on this issue, so I'm going to respond instead.
We believe that these servers are illegal for several reasons. I will suggest that you read this blog post for more information about that. We are treating this as any other illegal product (which I will not give examples of, since I'm sure you are well aware).
If freedom of speech is involved, should we allow discussions of other activities as well, as long as it's not in the mainspace? Of course we can't. If we had those kinds of people coming and going on this site then it would look like a garbage dump, and we would no longer have a "G" rating.
Popularity means nothing to us. This wiki is for Disney's Toontown Online and nothing else. Private servers are regarded as different games entirely. The info stored in that game cannot be used here. As you said, there are other places where players can communicate about this freely and appropriately.
Obviously, no new information can be added about TTO, so it is impossible to grow further. There is no point in trying to revive a site about a dead game. We are simply filling in the gaps when we can and cleaning it up to "museum status". Once that is done, all we need to do is maintain it.
Thank you for writing to us about this. We have been talking about this a lot in the past few months. For now, our position is not changing, discussions are still banned, and punishments for violating that rule will become stricter.

Okie then. Thank you for your time.

Script issue

Hi Loving,
I just wanted to inform you that it appears there's an issue with a script at the bottom of MediaWiki:Common.js. The problem is in the following code:

$(function(){
	var newTitle = $("#title-meta").html();
	if (!newTitle) return;
	var edits = $("#user_masthead_since").text();
	$(".firstHeading,#WikiaUserPagesHeader h1,#WikiaPageHeader h1").html(newTitle);
	$(".#user_masthead_head h2").html(newTitle + "<small id='user_masthead_since'>" + edits + "</small>");
});

Specifically, in this line:

	$(".#user_masthead_head h2").html(newTitle + "<small id='user_masthead_since'>" + edits + "</small>");

.#user_masthead_head is not a valid selector (it can start with either a number sign or a dot but not both), and it also looks like whatever part of the page it was originally meant to select has been removed by Wikia, or they've decided to change the structure of the page so it's now renamed. Pages which use Template:Title- gallery subpages in particular- seem to have issues loading their images, and this might be the source for this issue (or just my laggy internet connection :P).
In addition, i just wanted to point out that in the previous line, in this part of the code:

	$(".firstHeading,#WikiaUserPagesHeader h1,#WikiaPageHeader h1").html(newTitle);

The #WikiaUserPagesHeader h1 part of the selector allows users to impersonate others by changing the username text in their page, so i'd recommend removing it before something like that happens.
Penguin-Pal (talk) 05:33, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

We're both clueless when it comes to coding, so we appreciate the help. Gallery images still aren't loading correctly (don't worry, your internet is fine!) and I'll try to get them fixed ASAP. Thank you!
~Lily 20:53, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
Galleries seem to be working now. Please let us know if you happen to spot any other issues.

Do you have the trading card for this Cog? ZanyDragon (talk) 00:25, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

I did some work and found the Toontown Newsletters all over the web! I found most of them.

What do you think?

SodaDog (talk) 15:34, June 29, 2015 (UTC)

I didnt know leaving word of a private website was not allowed i thought it said leaving links was not allowed i will check it again and see if i was mistake thank you for letting me know

Files

Hi Loving,
I've uploaded a couple of files to the wiki today, but only afterwards did i realize that i was in the wrong wiki (:P). Since they are not original images, i assume that they will be no use in here. If that's the case, could you delete them please? Here they are:

Sorry about the mistake.
Penguin-Pal (talk) 07:28, August 13, 2015 (UTC)

Congrats!

Hi Loving,
Congratulations for earning the Wiki Universe award!
Penguin-Pal (talk) 11:57, October 14, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Reminder

Oh, whoops. Sorry about that, I haven't been on this wiki for quite a while so I forgot the rule. However, it's also unlikely that an image will be uploaded otherwise.

OdieboyDuck (talk) 22:52, February 2, 2016 (UTC) (Copy pasted from my profile as you don't get updated)

I checked on this wiki by Recent Wiki Activity, I knew EpicMan still making vandalism and he still creating account and cannot stop, I have an idea, if he creates again and still making vandalism, try block them and use reason is "Abusing multiple accounts and vandalism" so I hope he can stop doing it anymore.

PolyphonyDigital326 (talk) 02:53, February 26, 2016 (UTC)

Note

Hey, I think it's best to take action now to block this user to prevent them vandalize this wiki again. I saw them started vandalizing other wiki. Thank you. * Tᅢᄐ ŞtคrŞ * (Talk) 04:30, February 26, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you!

Thanks for blocking Pokechimp1999 V! I'm happy to see that vandal off this wiki once again! Vandals are so annoying! WonderMan1999 (talk) 21:22, March 7, 2016 (UTC)

Blocking EpicManWarning

It will take more than blocking a single user to keep EpicMan off this wiki! EpicMan is probably editing and testing the code for his spambot right now! I suggest preparing for the worst as he launches his seventh attack on this wiki! Good luck! WonderMan1999 (talk) 20:33, March 20, 2016 (UTC)

Vandalbot!

There's a vandalbot on this wiki moving pages! Could someone please ban him? Thanks in advance! Why can't I be an anonymous user? (talk) 21:29, May 24, 2016 (UTC)

A Long Forgotten Orange Monkey

Hello there! I notice this Toontown Wiki is missing a page. This year, I did some digging and I found this orange monkey from Toontown blog posts whose name was nearly forgotten. I've already added it to -cough- another Wiki (on April 22, 2016, National Jellybean Day). I was going to add it to this Wiki too, but I haven't gotten to it and I'm going to be busy for a while. And giving attribution to myself might be weird. I heard that might be a thing. And I'm not sure how you guys name your picture filenames.

Here are my relevant notes. I'm not going to say the monkey's name here though.

The first time I Googled his name this year, I got only 5 results, then later 7. But as soon as I made a page for it on a Wiki, the results went crazy and just about every page on that Wiki became a false positive. (It died down after a while though.)

I actually used this Wiki's blog post pages to do my research (you guys did a good job with those). I clicked just about every link (except that one broken link) just to see if there was a picture of that monkey. Pretty sure I got all the pictures of him.

Thanks for putting so much time and effort into this Wiki. The new Toontown 2.0 Unity Prototype pictures look pretty sweet.

I hope you find these notes useful.

Mistakes Were Made, Bloodsucker Page

Hi there!

I'm new to the editing wiki community here, and I had found some contributions that I have the opportunity to make. However, I believe I may have made a mistake on one of the editing pages, and I'm not sure how to change it. I was having difficulty figuring out how to make image uploads work on a page, and I had eventually figured it out, however I may have done enough to make this page uneditable by the community. I am unable to edit anything on this page after me trying to work on the whole image uploading thing. The page is the Bloodsucker page.

If I could receive any assistance in any way to undo my mistake, that would be incredible. Thank you very much!
