Hi, friend or stranger! You've found your way to my Talk page. I'm GodDjonni , and this is one of the ways you can get in touch with me about anything game or wiki related. If you leave me a note here, I'll reply here. You can click here to start a conversation with me about a new topic below. If you prefer you're also welcome to add me as a friend in the game and message me directly there. I'll reply equally promptly to either.

You'll also note, if you're a little experienced in how the wiki works, that my page is not in the User: namespace. This is on purpose — I'm perfectly happy for others to make changes to my page. If I have a problem with it I'll just undo the edit, just like any other page. And if for whatever reason I'm not around, then it doesn't really matter anyway!

This page has an archive

Old and/or inactive discussions have been moved to the /Archive subpage.

(Actually I'm a bit late, but close enough...)

...This also serves as a demonstration of the easily-abused power of class="plainlinks", which I shall now apply to the wiki-local URL links in the hatnotes and JanuWiki 2019 article. (Dunno why I didn't think of this before.) -- FeRDNYC (talk) 23:08, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

JanuWiki side job progress

A question that occurred to me, regarding side job progress — how can "best five" contests have _progress_? The judging can't take place until the end of the event, at which point it goes from 0% to 100% pretty much instantly. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 00:38, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

I see your point... I added a heading "Side job candidate articles" to each, and may scrap the "Progress" {{diaryquest}}s, but I wanted to give your new |side= formatting an airing ;) -- Djonni (talk) 22:53, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

bullet-wrap not working in {{Navbox list}}

Hey, it looks like {{Navbox list|bullet-wrap=yes}} isn't working — I pulled the list transclusion for the JanuWiki navbox quests into Special:ExpandTemplates and the generated output is identical with or without the bullet-wrap param. (Here's the code I tested:)

{{Navbox list|bullet=🍻|bullet-wrap=yes
| [[Brew a storm in a teacup]]
| [[Deliver some sour gnomish beer to the dark elves]]
| [[Find out how to turn a golden brick into a pint of beer]]
| [[Sing all of “99 bottles of beer on the wall!”]]
| [[Sit in a tavern and write fake diary entries]] <span style{{=}}"font-size: x-small; display: inline-block; vertical-align: middle;">✔</span>

Ideally what I'd like to be able to do, is tell it to format the items without the white-space:nowrap, but still tie the bullets themselves to the item they follow with a non-breaking space before them. It wasn't entirely clear to me whether that was possible (or supposed to be possible) with the template, and certainly "|bullet-wrap=yes" sounds like a strange way to express that sort of thing if it is. But the syntax is unimportant right now, the question of if/how is what matters.

...Anyway, as a result of the big, nowrap-styled quest titles, the JanuWiki navbox is formatting way too wide on mobile and sticking off the edge of the screen. Think you could take a look when you have a moment? Thx!

Oh, totally unrelated to this, and of absolutely no urgency whatsoever, but See Also: my idea at Template talk:Navbox list when you've got a few moments (which might not be until February, and totally understandable if that's the case). -- FeRDNYC (talk) 10:36, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Yeah, I noticed you added |bullet-wrap=yes to {{Navbox JanuWiki 2019}}, and it reminded me that the semantics of the two wrapping options at {{Navbox}} isn't great is terrible.
I had the "clever" idea of making Template:Navbox list/Space hold a space character — the idea being, if we decided to replace every &#32; space in every navbox list with a &thinsp;, or &ensp;, or whatever, we just change that one thing. In retrospect that's not easier than simply coding the space into the template, so I might rewrite it a bit, since that makes it difficult for me to do the behaviour you've described without mediawikiwiki:Module:String installed. But as I'm typing this a possibility occurs to me...
Would this achieve the expected behaviour? [[Long multi-word navbox list item]]<span style="white-space: nowrap;"> •</span> [[Next long link]] 🤔 I'll have to have a bit of a play with that.
I also saw your suggestion at Template talk:Navbox list, which I'll answer over there... apologies for reading without acknowledging. I've thought about it though, and my conclusion is that (even though it would be a bit of work to overhaul now) having {{Navbox list}} apply wiki-linking to the entries is not only obvious, but always should have been the default behaviour. More over there.
Soooo yeah, that might wait until after JanuWiki 😅 but in order to make the quests in the JanuWiki navbox more functional I'll work on that, uh... soon. -- Djonni (talk) 16:41, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
And no, [[Long multi-word navbox list item]]<span style="white-space: nowrap;"> •</span> [[Next long link]] doesn't seem to behave as I'd hoped, the bullet wraps as if the <span>...</span> isn't there. Back to the drawing board. I think I'll just have to drop support for |space= and simply hard-code the spaces. -- Djonni (talk) 17:08, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
