Welcome to our wiki, and thank you for your contributions! There's a lot to do around here (no, seriously), so I hope you'll stay with us and make many more improvements.

You may have seen our welcome message when you first visited the site. If you need to refer to it again, it is located here. The pages mentioned there are all highly useful, especially the recent changes page, which allows you to see what other people are editing right this minute, including what they are discussing on talk pages. Another great stop is our things to do page, which lists areas that could use your help. Finally, the Community Portal contains links to other large Ace Attorney websites, as well as general advice on editing.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! Capefeather (talk) 06:30, July 1, 2015 (UTC)

Template advice?Edit

Since you seem pretty knowledgeable when it comes to coding and stuff on wikia, do you know anywhere on the web a guy could go to learn how to make half-decent wiki templates? I've mostly been getting by just copy-pasting stuff and then tinkering slightly, but there's a couple of things I've been meaning to do for a while now that are being prevented by my incompetence... - Strabo412 (talk) 00:13, September 6, 2015 (UTC)

It pretty much depends on what you're trying to do. Most templates are basically tables. Judging from your contributions, it seems you have a basic understanding of how they work, so I'd suggest you move onto some advanced stuff. mw:help:tables is a really useful guide. Another useful thing to learn would be parser functions, as they're extremely useful in a variety of cases. You can also go for basic css. I'd suggest mdn (for the wonderful docs) and codecademy (for actual practice), but there are plenty of other tutorials available online.
Also, the central forums are a great place to seek help if you ever get stuck on something. There's plenty of experienced users who offer great advice on whatever your issue is. --slyst
That all sounds like really useful stuff to look into! Thanks a lot! ^_^ - Strabo412 (talk) 09:15, September 6, 2015 (UTC)


Is there an advantage to not having gaps between items in lists that I'm missing? I find that it improves readability when editing by making it easy to see at a glance where one item ends and the next begins... - Strabo412 (talk) 16:55, October 2, 2015 (UTC)

I thought about clarifying this on your talkpage, but never bothered to. As stated in the edit summary, having gaps between list items essentially breaks the list. So, if you have 10 items in a single unordered list separated by a couple of line-breaks, you'd end up having 10 one-item unordered lists, which is quite unnecessary. To further explain this, you can try spacing out items in an ordered list (the ones that start with a #). --slyst
I'm aware that having line-breaks with ordered lists breaks them, but I still don't understand your point about unordered lists, as it doesn't seem to make any real difference to the actual published page. While I understand that it's not necessary to have line-breaks, is it really having a negative effect that I'm being totally ignorant of? - Strabo412 (talk) 09:42, October 3, 2015 (UTC)
There is a difference, albeit barely noticeable. Lists tend to add a 0.4em top and 0.5em bottom margin. Regardless of that, it's bad practice to have separate lists for each item. After all, they're built to incorporate multiple items for a reason. --slyst
Yeah, I'd noticed that as well and thought it actually looked better. To be honest, I still fail to see what the problem is, as it doesn't seem to have any detrimental effect. Each to their own, I guess? - Strabo412 (talk) 19:25, October 10, 2015 (UTC)
Apologies for the late reply; got caught up with something else irl.
There's probably a good reason why tags are made the way are. I still fail to see why you insist on using a multitude of lists? It's somewhat same as using <span>Look</span> <span>at</span> <span>this</span>. Regardless of whether there are any detrimental effects, it's generally a bad practice to have the same tags repeated all over. If the additional margin is your reason to keeping them, a small amount of css can very easily do the trick. -- slyst (talk) 05:35, October 19, 2015 (UTC)
It was really more for readability when editing in the Source Editor. To be honest though, I've been mulling it over and have decided to remove the line-breaks. If every other wiki is doing it that way and no-one else is bothered about how it looks in the Source Editor, then I'm in the wrong. I'm certainly not going to start removing them all at once from every page (!), but I'll start doing it the next time I edit pages. - Strabo412 (talk) 16:07, October 19, 2015 (UTC)

Important QuestionEdit

I'm very sorry to ask this here but I can't ask this in Community Central.

I'd like to ask, does the random background script block the background ad? Also may I ask, is this background ad the ad on the wiki's background at the top of a wiki's page?


UMDP (talk) 10:40, December 1, 2015 (UTC)

Is there any reason why you can't ask it on central?
No, since it only changes the css, I doubt it would block the ad. By the background ad, I would assume it refers to the "Autumn Games Guide Preview" visible on gaming communities. This is what I see, and it doesn't affect the ad in any way. - slyst (talk) 11:06, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Ah... It's actually because of this and this.
When our wiki's admin passed the random background script and the flash player in Common.js for review, both passed. But, when he transferred each script to their own pages to make our wiki's Common.js clutter free, both were suddenly rejected.
The reviewer said that the random background script can overlap a background ad and that flash players were not allowed in Wikia. Our admin checked during the time it was approved in our wiki's Common.js and also after it was rejected it its own page on test mode if the random background script was overlapping the background ad but the background ad he saw was not overlapped. I asked Kirkburn in another wiki if flash players were allowed in Wikia and he said that they only prefer avoiding it (but not forbid it).
Because of what happened, we're not sure now what happened and what were going to do...
UMDP (talk) 13:19, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Now that I look into it, background ads displayed for anons do get disrupted when the randomizer script is used. About the flash objects issue, I'm gonna assume that was overlooked before and was struck down when Rappy saw it. Since both of the scripts are rejected, I'm afraid you can't do much but comply. You or the admin can inquire more about it either by contacting Rappy on his central message wall or by continuing the discussion on the respective talk pages. - slyst (talk) 17:41, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
I see. Thanks a lot! :)
Ah May I ask, what are these disruptions? And is it possible to fix them or if not covert the random background script into css?
UMDP (talk) 06:54, December 2, 2015 (UTC)
When the randomizer script is use, it overrides the default background and this includes the background ad. A few users have also told me that their browser crashes when they're not logged in and the randomizer script is used. Even if we workaround a fix, they'd always have at least one reason to reject it, so I suggest you drop the idea. - slyst (talk) 08:11, December 2, 2015 (UTC)
I see. Thanks a lot for always helping me and I'm very sorry if I trouble and depend on you too much. Thanks a lot again! :)
