Hi and welcome! I just wanted to let you know that it's worthwhile to categorize images. As the wiki grows, it becomes more and more important — Game widow ( talk ) 19:06, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Thank you :D Fixed them right up. Appreciate the help!

Ship Component User Page[]

Yello. Thanks for making some changes to User:Nekoaurora/Ship Components, much appreciated. However, this is a personal user page and a work-in-progress. I would prefer if people didn't edit it until I've finished building it all and moved it into the main wiki. Don't worry about all the links, I'll get round to making sure they all link properly once I've actually finished building most of it. Thanks. :D Nekoaurora (talk) 18:35, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

PS I'm usually still playing around with formatting ideas and the like when I'm building when I'm still building. :3 Nekoaurora (talk) 18:37, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
My bad, sorry about that. The edits I made were all to help connect links / show examples of links you could be using to existing content. Won't edit again! Fallenadmin (talk) 19:22, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

UCX implementation[]

Hi! I’m Héctor, one of the Fandom Community Managers. I’m here to talk with you about the upcoming changes we will experiment on the wikis when the new UCX will be released. As a result, we’ll have to adapt the current content - mainly the design and implemented code - to ensure they’re compatible and operational.

Specifically talking, the UCX will mainly affect the Frontpage, the design (logo, background, favicon, themes), the CSS/JS used and some templates that should adapt their look to it. While the wiki will still be migrated some weeks later, I’m here to work alongside you to anticipate all the work regarding review, improvements and adaptation to the new skin.

If you agree, I’ll start soon, reviewing the mentioned elements and describing to you what work should be done. For the case of the design, I can work with the future version, that will be working once the wiki will be migrated. Regarding the frontpage, templates and the code, I can work and implement the changes now, to have them properly working both in the present and the future, but having all the changes done in advance.

Let me know if you have any comments about it and we can explore together the upcoming changes. Thanks! --CuBaN VeRcEttI (Contact) 18:36, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi! Do you have any comment about this? The new skin is already available to you. Thanks! --CuBaN VeRcEttI (Contact) 18:29, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Opt-in release[]

Hello again! As we have announced in our last blog, the opt-in exploration is available to you now! You can basically take a look at the main areas of the wiki, but as I explained the main things you should keep into account are the frontpage, the tables and their style, and other templates like infoboxes and navboxes. All of this, always thinking about the option of switching between the light and dark theme and all the content should be readable and adapted to both at the same time. In addition, all the wikis have to create a combination of colors for the light and dark theme, using the ThemeDesigner tool, and also re-upload the logo and favicon, and optionally the background (but it will work differently as header background, so it’s up to you what we’ll do with it on your wiki).

I already adapted the content and code to be compatible with FandomDesktop (the new skin), and also created the 2 themes and re-uploaded the assets. You can perfectly make any change to the ThemeDesigner and/or the Mediawiki pages, but I really encourage you to talk with me first. I’ve been adapting it, and I put some concrete stuff (colors in the ThemeDesigner, code in the MW pages and in one page but not another) for concrete reasons (basically to have all compatible with both themes), so to be more practical I think it’s better if we discuss about any proposal/issue/preference you could find/want before make changes.

Use some days to explore the new skin and how your wiki looks, especially if it's properly shown with both themes. If you think it's 100% ready, feel free to go to the Admin Dashboard and click on the Mark as Ready button. It implies your confirmation the wiki is ready and can be migrated when its turn will come. Thanks for everything! --CuBaN VeRcEttI (Contact) 16:28, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Hi! For sure. We can discuss about any previous change I made and also about future stuff you want to add/change, with my direct action on it. All the adaptation is basically throught the ThemeDesigner (assets and designing both new themes), and also moving and adapting the CSS code in the Mediawiki pages.
I can work with the CSS, as I've been doing during these previous days, without problem. My only limitations are technical (my technical knowledge) and time ones (available time to work here between other wikis). Let me know what concrete areas do you want to work with and we can follow the conversation about it. Thanks! CuBaN VeRcEttI (Contact) 11:27, 21 June 2021 (UTC)

UCX migration[]

Hello again! As we announced in our last blog post, we started the migration of the first batch of wikis to the UCX some days ago. Your wiki wasn’t migrated yet because you weren’t marked it as ready in the Admin Dashboard, but we expect to migrate a second batch of wikis in the next few days, including yours. Do you have any concrete blocker for this? I already worked on the adaptation of the wiki, so theoretically it shouldn’t have any critical  blocker to stop the migration. Thanks! --CuBaN VeRcEttI (Contact) 11:08, 6 July 2021 (UTC)


Hi! I'm ProfessorTofty, or George, and I'm a Wiki Specialist with Fandom. I was assigned to review a list of wikis for potential issues with FandomDesktop. This was one of them and in so doing, I noticed that the new layout is causing the tables to be cut off on the right side on certain pages such as Pirate Reference. Just thought I should make you aware so that you can fix this up. If you're not sure how to fix it or need any help, just let me know and I can get Fandom's technical team to look at it.
