  • Hi! I was just wondering how the wiki has the rules stated above the comment section on each page. Like the;

    • As a reminder, please read the Rules before posting. Be friendly and do not post any comments discussing illegal copies of the games. Try to avoid replying to comments older than 3 months.

    If you could give me a boot to a link (or maybe pass on the CSS) I would greatly appreciate it!

  • I'd just like to know how you made Mentalbot, and what code and stuff you used to make it, since your the only one with an active bot left, so I'd like to just... know so I can keep the message if Mentalbot ever goes inactive.

    • I registered a normal account and then made a request to the Wikia Inc. They usually grant you bot rights as long as you are admin/bureaucrat, or you give them good reasons. I am not very good at those scripts, so I only use AutoWikiBrowser to do mass edits. It's a very good tool for bot beginners.

      Hope it helps!

    • So it's possible to get a bot by simply contacting the staff? That's great.

      I've always wanted a bot to do repetitive mass edits in short spaces of time (and probably outright needed one for this to be implemented. Thanks to Anemicne's bot, we could do it), but at the moment I feel like its usefulness is limited since we're not updating several templates or introducing new features. I'm aware there are other abilities, but the main one I was looking for was this one.

      I can read some codes and understand them to a certain degree, but I'm not experienced enough to actually write one myself yet and never knew you could get one by contacting the staff. That's why I never got a bot so far.

  • Just out of curiosity, why is the Bureaucrat tag on user pages now "Nightmare Throne"? I don't know, I find it a bit vague for undertanding. Just my opinion.

    Edit: Just noticed it was also on other rights save for Admin.

  • How did you change the look of your username? Is it an admin thing?

      Loading editor
    • Yes it is. Site-wide customisation is made in MediaWiki:Wikia.css in which only admins can edit it. You can have a personalisation which is only visible to you by putting codes in Special:MyPage/Common.css (work in Don't Starve Wiki only) or in w:Special:MyPage/Global.css (work in all Wikia sites).

  • The comment section has become very inapropriate, I am new to this so I don't know if I need to ask but I just want to get some permission to change the trivia to say they are spores or something other than genetalia.

      Loading editor
    • Characters directly say it is genitalia, so they are not spores or something else. I'll look through the comments and remove the ones that are inappropriate.

        Loading editor
    • I've quite aggressively removed anything inappropriate, including things that could become inappropriate. There were only a few comments that were problematic though.

  • Should the old applications for positions be kept around? I see applications over a year old. and I remember hitting those pages when I used to have time to click "random" to browse the wiki. Should we at least combine them somewhere as an archive? Also it may be a good idea to not have the application in the main namespace. They are not wiki articles after all. I don't know, just random thoughts, what do you guys think? (I'm assuming Deiaa would also see this, I can move this elsewhere if needed).

  • winter help i want it

    • Hey, I am not very active recently so sorry for the late reply.

      I think there is a Guides/Winter Guide which basically explains what you can do to maximise your survival chance. The guide may be a bit outdated but it certainly helps you a lot :)

      From my experience, I will try to build 4-5 Farms and gather a full stack of Logs, Twigs and Cut Grass in my Chest when it is in autumn. Then you have enough resources to light up your base and your stomach at the beginning of the winter.

      Then you can craft some Traps to catch rabbit later, and also I usually don't pick Berries unless necessary, because these berries can be your emergency reserve in Winter.

      For freezing, you should be able to craft a Thermal Stone and Rabbit Earmuffs to keep yourself warm.

      If you have completed all of these before the Winter, it is very easy to overcome the challenges later.

    • In my experiance. Not sure if you'd want to take my advice or not. But I don't pick berries or carrots unless nessisary. But for winter, if you catch rabbits or make bunny muffs or a thermal stone. One of either I find to be sufficiant. With the thermal stone, if it cools down to yellow. and if you quickly reheat it to red, it will last the whole winter at 100%. My survival technique though, is get a lot of flint beforehand, catch and kill bunnies for morsels. And crockpot it with 3 ice. 1 morsel + 3 ice = meatball. Which will be almost an entire day of food.

  • I'm going to write a script to block replying to old comments (1 year?). The reply button will disappear. Any objections? I've looked for an existing one in dev.wikia, but there doesn't seem to be one.

      Loading editor
  • I wonder how did you make your comments' background transparent as if it was made of glass? It looks kinda...stylish.

    I would like to have them too.
