Welcome 😊

Hullo there Emptysora! Welcome to the Godwiki!

There wouldn't be any confrontation involved in adding yourself to Help:Requests, helpful new faces around the wiki are a pleasure to have! And if you're helping someone and encounter something that makes you worry, never fear, any other volunteer editor will be completely happy to help you figure out whatever's up.

We subscribe strongly to Being Bold around here. And in the event that something is undone, we always prefer to have a constructive, friendly discussion about it.

By all means, ease yourself into things here, and do as little or as much as you're comfortable with. But all are welcome here, and conflict is rare. 😊 -- Djonni (talk) 20:30, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

I don’t exactly expect conflict to occur, it’s more the “what if” that makes me wary of confrontation—even if I know full well that it’s completely unfounded. Honestly, unexpectedly receiving a response like this has actually eased my nerves quite a bit in that regard, ironically. I guess I shall try to be bold as you say. Thanks. Emptysora (talk) 02:48, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
Glad to have you here, Emptysora, for as much or as little as you want to contribute.
Also: <s>...</s> will work, along with a selected subset of other HTML and any inline CSS that works in a style="..." attribute. 😊 -- Djonni (talk) 05:47, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

Boogie Knight

slight side note, there's a space before the extension in the image, might we be able to move the image?

(From this edit comment.)

I'm looking at the page and I can't figure out what you mean... is there a problem with the image that I can't see on desktop? 🧐 -- Djonni (talk) 06:05, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

In the template call, the image parameter says something like “Boogey Knight[space].jpg” I was just wondering if we could move File:Boogey Knight .jpg to File:Boogey Knight.jpg. We don’t have to, it just bugs me, as bad as that sounds, heh. — Emptysora (talk) 07:28, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
Tick.png Done 😄 -- Djonni (talk) 18:01, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! I feel like I shouldn’t just move pages without input from anyone else. I didn’t feel it was important enough to create a talk page entry for it, though. — Emptysora (talk) 18:13, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Diary timestamps

Knighting Gale‎ (diff | hist) . . (+17)‎ . . Emptysora (talk | contribs) (Adding stub parameter (as a side note, can we try to keep the hour format in diary entries semi-consistent? it gets confusing when 24-hour and 12-hour is used in the same article))

Unfortunately it's essentially impossible to keep diary time formats consistent, for many reasons! We don't have string parser functions, so we can't do it automatically, and so it depends entirely on where the person copied the diary entry from. The app and the desktop versions of Godville handle timestamps differently. And there's simply no way to communicate all these tiny little stylistic preferences to new contributors, at least not without scaring people off from contributing.

If we want things to be consistent, we either need to write very clever, very easy to use templates (which is often, but not always, possible), or just manually to in and make every little edit ourselves. (I've thought about writing a bot or two for the Godwiki, but normal bots are disabled, and writing a bot manually which can log in to Godvillegame.com, get the cookie, and then do what I'd want on the wiki using scraping and HTML GET and POST, well, it's more trouble than I've been bothered to do so far, heh.)

Yeah, no, I wasn’t expecting people to maintain consistency, I was just curious if we have a preferred style. I might add that to my growing todo list. I’m actually trying to make a JS bot myself to scrape monster names, diary entries, etc. from my god page. I’d do a wiki bot if it was something I’ve done before. I’ve done custom MW extensions and the like, but not bots. Don’t want to be responsible for when THAT inevitably breaks on me, like most programs and computers I touch. — Emptysora (talk) 11:12, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for you work

I really wanted to thank you for doing all the template work and other stuff I've been seeing pop up in why watch list. I've seen your page and I think you have very ambitious project for the wiki. Again I thank you for helping us (as in the real noob with templates and other stuff) to make this wiki look good and work better. -- Arkhen Thean (talk) 16:07, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

No problem. I’m a bit of a perfectionist... actually, who am I kidding, I’m an extreme perfectionist. When I see things that look off, or could be done, I like to do them. As the Help:Requests Page says, feel free to contact me or the others if you need anything at all~. I’ve been a bit busy yesterday and today though IRL, so I haven’t been able to check the wiki as much as I would’ve liked.

Thank you!

Thanks for re-editing the Armageddon Manuel thing-y I knew it was missing something I just couldn't put my finger on it, soon to find out that it was a LOT missing. -Pancaked (talk) 08:02, 21 November 2019 (UTC) Sincerely, Pancaked

it’s fine~! The annoying part about the {{stub}} template is that that template is what points people to the appropriate guideline article. So, when you’re just starting out, and help by creating pages, said warning can’t tell you to add those templates.
Well, I suppose that’s what makes this a wiki: collaboration. If you forget something, one of us will see it and go in and fix it.
Really, it only looks like a lot was missing. So, again, you’re fine. Thanks for contributing, and you’re welcome. :3

Full caps redirects for pets

Ref:

Add FULL CAPS redirect pages for all pets
On the HERO screen, the link to the pet is in all caps. I’m not sure if the game converts it beforehand, but, it sends you to the FULL CAPS name.

🧐 Are you certain of this? Perhaps I'm not reading this right, but if there's a link from anything on Godville to an all-caps wiki destination, that needs to be reported as a bug.

From the hero screen, my gummy wyrm pet links to https://wiki.godvillegame.com/gummy%20wyrm, which is redirected by HTTP header as you'd expect to https://wiki.godvillegame.com/Gummy_wyrm which is then #REDIRECTed to Gummy Wyrm. All pet links from the hero page should follow this exact pattern: when a monster becomes a pet, their %pet_class% is always the lowercased version of the %monster%, and this variable is what's used to create the Godwiki links.

In other words, we definitely wouldn't like to create all-caps redirects for these, when it's caused by unwanted behaviour on Godville that can be fixed 😊 Earn yourself another Gratitude point! -- Djonni (talk) 06:03, 22 November 2019 (UTC)

As we're all aware by now (lol), I have a Sun Dog for a pet. When I click “SUN DOG” on the hero screen, it pulls me here at says “Redirected from SUN DOG”, instead of “Redirected from Sun dog”.
What does yours say?
Speaking of, I actually sent a bug report last night regarding three bugs I found, heh. I’m up to 3 gratitude points. They were: 1) canceling a duel at the ZPG warning gets the “Send to Arena” button stuck highlighted, 2) pulling down to refresh, stopping before it refreshes and using a second finger to open the Notification Center freezes the screen, and 3) opening either menu, switching apps, having the game refresh without restarting causes the non-diary screens to stop responding to touch input. I think they were aware of the third one because they asked if I knew the exact steps to reproduce it it would help a lot (which I did hypothesize and tell them shortly thereafter).
