Welcome!
Hi <insert name here>! I'm an administrator here at the Sonic News Network wiki, specializing in editing, moderating and managing both the shape and functionality of the wiki using both CSS and JS or through any other method that FANDOM offers. If you have anything to ask, feel free to message me below. And I shall answer if I can!

  • Hello, I already addressed this request to Ultrasonic9000, and he advised me to contact you. Please help Sonic And His Friends Wiki, making her more beautiful. We will write the articles ourselves. I would simply want beautiful colors of nicknames, and then yellow and green bored. And also normal wallpaper (They hang from 2015). I hope that my message will not be left without attention.

    • I'm afraid to say that I don't understand much of your request. What is the "beautiful colors of nicknames, and then yellow and green bored"? Could you be more specific about what you need?

      Also, I don't design backgrounds. I simply asked for one there, upon meeting their criteria.

  • Hello Luma. Pardon me for being oblivious, but shouldn't this talk page have been given its own talk page template automatically?

    • Guess I have to specify my settings more to include those, although I should have done something else.

    • It is solved now.

    • Good to know. What was the problem?

    • If you want to get technical, then I'll tell you what happened:

      1. At first, I used this code {{#ifeq: {{#titleparts:{{PAGENAME}}|1|1}}|{{PAGENAME}}|display: block;|display:none;}} in the Talk template to prevent the template from being used on Archive pages. However, this solution is not specific; as there exist pages like Talk: Sonic Forces/Script, which are sub-pages but need the template since they are not Archive pages. I hadn't thought about this possibility.

      2. So, the solution was this; {{#ifeq: {{#sub:{{SUBPAGENAME}}|0|7}}|Archive|display: none;|display:block;}}. This checks if the talkpage name contains a subpage level called "Archive" or not. If it contains, the value display: none; will be applied and will hide the talk template from the talkpage. If not, the other value will be used instead and the template will appear in the talkpage.

      I got this solution from researching and with the help of a user from the Community Central wiki.

  • How do you get a custom notification to popup on the bottom right?

  • I noticed that you put the Archives on several talk pages, but you didn't move them to the "archived" pages...? I am wondering of why you didn't think of doing that as Archive Templates would locked these Talk Pages from being use for later issues?

    I mean, like move from Talk:Sonic_Forces to Talk:Sonic_Forces/Archive_1 or something like that so we can get those articles cleaned out of the old conversations.

  • Hey Luma. Seeing as we’re going to be getting new issues released soon, do you think you could implement that “Next Issue” template on the front page that you did not too long ago?

  • Hello Luma.dash, may I ask if it's possible to change the image of the Community Page Header that's being used in the community page?
    I think it needs to be updated, and I have a suggestion, we could use this image instead.

  • Hi, and thanks for all of your great administrative work!

    I noticed that you deleted the page The Chaotix—which I had created as a redirect to Chaotix—because nothing linked to my redirect. While that certainly is the case, I had a different reason for creating the redirect; mainly, that users looking for the Chaotix might type "The Chaotix" instead of "Team Chaotix" or simply "Chaotix", and that having this redirect would save them the few seconds of wondering what the actual page name was (or even deciding that a Chaotix page must not exist and creating one themselves). Therefore, I thought that having this redirect would help readers of the site, even though it has no immediate advantage to editors of the site.

    (Note: I created this redirect after typing "The Chaotix" into the search engine, seeing no results, then having to realize that the page name must instead be "Chaotix", and thinking that there must be site-readers like me who would have the same problem.)

    Whatever your verdict is on whether this redirect should exist or not, please let me know why your conclusion is what it is, so that I can edit this wiki more helpfully in the future.

    Thanks again for all of your great work on this wiki!

    • It is true that the search engine of ours is not very sensitive and visitors may need to follow more steps in order to get the result they want. However, as I already stated in my deletion's summary; a redirect must have links and that it is really serving a need. Like being the older name of the subject or an alternative to it. And should be used on articles.

      Just because the search engine is not good does not mean that we need more redirects to fill the gap. Because this will certainly end in a mess since we would not be able to filter them. As a wiki-based site, we must make sure everything is used and serves a purpose.

      Also, browsing the list of results wouldn't hurt, right?

    • Good to know. I will try to remember this in the future, so that I do not create any more useless redirects.

  • Hey, I don't mean to bother you. But who do you like more? Sonic or Shadow? Since they're both number one for you. If you don't wanna tell me, that's fine.

    • No, I meant that Sonic's powers are also amazing. That's why I cannot prefer one over the other.

    • @Luma: Oh, thanks for explaining.

      Nice answer.

    • Why not you declare your opinion about this on the original thread of Discussions? As I'm afraid to say that this means I'm going to make a speech for the whole community, and I'm not sure if your proposal will be accepted, since we did not give such a long period for Mania when it had been released.

  • I can't quite recall. Did we agree to add a Sonic Forces-themed background to the wikia when the game came out, or not?

      Loading editor
    • We have decided not to do a frequent change of backgrounds again, since we had changed it a lot in the summer.

      But, not for decorating our wiki for each released game exactly. But, I still think it would be better to start a quick discussion over it. So, that we can know the number of supporters.
