Wikia features

Say, Robert, if you have a moment, could you take a look at this here? I've started a thread regarding the idea of enabling additional features here, and I'd like to get opinions. ProfessorTofty (talk) 15:33, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Vacancy

I wasn't aware that she removed the link to the older wiki. At this point, I think a warning is fair; a block is in order if any such activity continues. ProfessorTofty (talk) 15:41, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Main page vandalism

For that sort of petty vandalism, I usually prefer to give a warning first, which I have just done. If the behaviour continues, I'll probably block for about a month, unless something worse is done, in which case it would be for longer. ProfessorTofty (talk) 14:02, October 23, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Recent changes markup

Fixed. This is something that has to be enabled manually in the CSS. If you're still not seeing it, try refreshing your browser while holding down the shift or control key. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:50, October 24, 2012 (UTC)

Re: New Casual Vacancy Wiki

I don't know what you're seeing on your end, but the color scheme I'm seeing on my end - not good. The black on gray is barely readable and the background graphic is distracting. ... And, I see you just changed it. Well, the white on black is a bit better, but it's still not ideal. If you like I can try to suggest some more complementary colors and maybe get a better background image. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:34, October 27, 2012 (UTC)

I've now amended the main page with a "help wanted" section and started a corresponding thread on its talk page. -- RobertATfm (talk) 03:13, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
It seems to be working fine on the page for "Umbrella." As for it not working on the Template page itself, don't worry about it. That always happens at first, it usually sorts itself out on its own after a little while. But if by some chance it doesn't, it doesn't really matter so long as it's doing what it's supposed to do on pages. ProfessorTofty (talk) 07:42, October 27, 2012 (UTC)

Rollback rights

Hi, I saw your post on ProfessorTofty's talk page. It is this what you search.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 11:45, October 31, 2012 (UTC)

Harry granger is correct. You may also want to leave a message on the talk page of Grunny, as only a bureaucrat can grant rollback. Regarding the colour scheme, correct, but it's just for today, for Hallowe'en. If you think it should be more permanent, though, I recommend suggesting it on the forums.

Miniscule / Minuscule

I'll let your correction stand, but I think that you'll find that Firefox flags neither as an error. Also, this. ProfessorTofty (talk) 13:10, November 14, 2012 (UTC)


I think I remember reading it a couple of months ago, hence my surprise when the Professor said it was innapropriate. However, I'd forgotten until you'd brought it up again, so sorry about that misunderstanding. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 18:38, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Possible vandal edit

For the record-- never take the name being removed from the infobox field as a sign of possible vandalism. That's not vandalism-- that's a recurring bug that happens here-- any edit made to an infobox using the visual editor will cause the name field to be zapped. I'll have a look at the other concern, though. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:01, March 22, 2013 (UTC)

I see, it's like the other known bugs from using the visual editor (duplication of categories, insertion of images/infoboxes into the middle of words). And Wikia recommends that everyone use that rubbish? I think that if the source editor is ever removed, I'll stop being a Wikia editor as the visual editor is far too unreliable. — RobertATfm (talk) 23:17, March 22, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the link. I've taken a look around and it seems pretty good. If I knew anything about Cormoran Strike, I would help out there, but I don't think I would be able to provide that much assistance. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 15:17, July 16, 2013 (UTC)

Lars Berteig Andersen edits

I saw after I saved my edits that you had undone the edit by a possible vandal. Don't take it as a sign of deleting your edit, as I may have been editing at the same time as you undid. Not meant to ruin your edits. --DCLM (talk) 14:50, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

Just letting you know. :) And I agreed with you on same page. --DCLM (talk) 15:27, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

User page policy on ProfessorTofty's talk page

Hi, I have read your question and I think it is that what you search: Harry Potter Wiki:User Policy#Editing. It belongs to user talk page editing.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 11:29, July 20, 2013 (UTC)

RE: New (ab)user?

VSTF checked into the matter, and found a number of accounts being used by that vandal. They've been disabled globally by Wikia. - Nick O'Demus 00:10, July 27, 2013 (UTC)
