      Belt-of-Deltora, who's also inactive, didn't respond yet. But I have unblocked you. Please note what I wrote in the summary when I unblocked you though.

  • I've turned off anonymous contributions on the wiki, so I'm removing the IP blocks because there's no need for them anymore. Just letting you know, in case you were wondering why one of your blocks was removed by me.

      Loading editor
    • But what if someone else with the same IP tries to register and vandalize?

        Loading editor
    • Then they have one chance to use that IP address well and not fuck it up. They'll just be back where they started, otherwise: blocked.

  • It's been a while since you've been active here. A lot of the excitement's faded since the AVGN Movie was done, but I'm wondering how you are in general.

    Fireworks888 has since stepped down from the Wiki, so I decided to check-in with you so that we could figure out if we need another Admin for the Wiki or not.

    I've been a bad example, being away for several months. I'm working more regularly now and hope to hear back from you soon.

    • Well, I've beenhHella busy with other wikis, with a gastronomy, music and fashion design school, where I cooked and learned to play music, and I am still kind of busy. I have to read a lot of books, and study math. I'm going into a very intense school year after this summer vacation, probably for two years, since I missed some exams many years ago. After that I plan on working towards getting a PhD in linguistics.

      But I will try to find time to edit on the wiki. I just don't really know what to do on here, since James has slowed the show way down in favor of other projects, and being a father. I am really hoping that he'd announce some big project soon, some short film or feature film or something.

      By the way, do you know who runs the Cinemassacre Wiki?

        Loading editor
    • No, I don't know who runs that Wiki, unfortunately. It's a project that seems to have fizzled out quickly because of severe lack of attention (only 10 pages, no changes in the last 30 days).

      I debated asking Wikia to help me merge the two Wikis around the time I adopted this Wiki, but there was so little content on the Cinemassacre Wiki that I decided not to do it.

      De facto, *this* has been the Cinemassacre Wiki. There was already enough attention paid to other Cinemassacre.com series on this Wiki that I decided it would be ok. It *is* stretching the original purpose of this Wiki, though. I'm not really sure what would be best to do in this case, since two Wikia wikis are covering some of the same subjects.

      As for James doing new and exciting projects to keep you interested, I don't think either of us can predict that accurately. :/

      Ideally, I'd like you to check in at least once a week, but if that's too much once a month would be a reasonable minimum. There is less overall activity now, so it isn't necessary for you to be here all the time.

    • You do know that you can ask Wikia to let other domains redirect to the wiki, right? You can contact them about letting Cinemassacre.wikia.com redirect here :)

      They can probably delete what's there too, since the activity there is all but alive.

    • I'll ask a Wikia staffer about that soon, then. :)

  • Check out the background, got it working really nicely with CSS. Sorry for not telling you about the UI changes sooner, but it was difficult to get everything working properly, I meant to include your BG in the wiki's design all along.

    As well, the yellow-coloured buttons made the blue URL links very difficult to see on Message Walls, I had to change it back. If you can find a way to make the links and yellow work together on Message Walls, I'll change it back in a heartbeat.

  • Sorry for forgetting to mention this earlier, but I have a WIP theme saved in the Theme Designer, you could preview it to see how it looks. The default Wikia colours don't work so well with a Yellow/Orange/Red theme, but this looks decent.

    The yellow and reds of this theme make it much more "Angry"-looking. What do you think?

    • We could also create custom stuff, like custom images for buttons. I think it is possible if you know CSS. CSS coding is possible through Special:MediaCSS by the way. With this you can achieve effects like this gradient shadow thing that's going on in this Wiki's character infobox http://vampirediaries.wikia.com/wiki/Elena_Gilbert

    • Yes, CSS is a very important part of web design that I've been neglecting. I'm going to learn the basics from w3schools.com. How much do you know about CSS, then? Anything you know is definitely an asset to the Wiki.

      This layout you're trying out is pretty good, it's definitely more Nerd-like and the Yellow works well.

      Maybe the image you used for the Background could be fixed across the whole page width, Mass Effect's Wiki already does this.

      Fireworks and I were talking a lot about the Theme/Hero Image, too. I'm a bit disappointed, why didn't you talk with us in those discussions? Ideally, I'd hoped we could all collaborate at once, and all three of us could have bounced ideas off one another.

        Loading editor
    • No, it cannot be fixed across the whole page. The reason I made it the way it is now is because it's too small. I have to enlarge the image in an image editor first. I wanted to ask you what think of the yellows I have implemented by the way. Is it too much. Also, actually, I was not intending for the Hero Image to be final. I was only testing how it works. I thought you could undo it. I think it is odd that you cannot do that. I am sorry for that mistake.


      EDIT: Oh, I was able to delete! :D I just had to remove it from the Photos section of the Wiki. Sorry abut that screw-up.

        Loading editor
    • No, no, it's ok! I don't mind if you fiddle around with new layouts, I only want some discussion before all three of us can agree on a final. That's all, really.

      I don't think you screwed up on any of it, really. It's ok to experiment, and if you feel awkward trying the Theme out for everyone to see, just revert it to an earlier layout until you feel your Theme is completely ready.

  • The Hero Image is another cool Wikia feature to help the front page look awesome. See the bottom of this page. It also gives us the opportunity to write a summary that's meant to make the Wiki show up better in web searches. I've got an idea for a summary, tried to make it sound exciting, but I want to run it by you guys before I make it final:

    "The Wiki dedicated to the Angry Video Game Nerd webseries! We're gonna take you back to the past, as a record of the Nerd's quest to warn the world about shitty games. Put on your Power Glove, grab a Rolling Rock and turn the diarrhea dial up to 11!"

    As for the Hero Image, a large-sized version of the Movie-version's logo sounds like the best kind of image. We'd have to edit out "The Movie" part of it, but I could source that from my Vimeo version of the movie.

    If my idea for the Hero Image sounds too repetetive (the Wiki's logo is already the regular AVGN logo), any really iconic or memorable scene featuring the Nerd will do. EDIT: Whoops, the Wordmark is the IBM-style text in the upper-left of the Main Page.

  • The AVGN Wiki was added to the YouTuber footer. As such, it would be appriciated if the footer could be added to the wiki. The footer can be added by putting this code into the homepage: 
    {{W:YouTube_Footer}}

    If the wiki choses not to add the footer or would not like to be on it, let me know and you will be removed.

    Best regards.

  • I should probably belatedly tell you: it's best to just get rid of page comments that turn into flaming one another. A person can say somebody related to AVGN or Cinemassacre sucks, even using loads of swearing and being downright insulting, they're allowed to say it if it's their opinion.

    After somebody insults that person to "defend" AVGN Wiki, and it turns into a stupid fight, from that comment on, it doesn't matter what was or will be said.

    Thanks for helping out when I was AWOL. It was a "break until the movie was out to avoid spoilers", that just got too long for its own good. I'll check-in more often from now on.

    • Well, I think it would be cool to create some graphics for the wiki that resmebles logos the look of branding and logos in 80s commercials. Something with a bit of VHSish quality to it, if you know what I mean.

        Loading editor
    • Use the Theme Designer from the Admin Dashboard (here) to get an idea of what you can change. Unless you know CSS, this is definitely the easiest way to change the theme.

      You can preview the theme as you wish. Please don't set the WIP theme as the Wiki's current theme, though. Save the WIP theme, but don't use it as the current theme until we're both happy with it, ok?

      If you're going to use/make graphics from other sources (aside from images you photograph or create from scratch yourself), make sure they're either from Cinemassacre Productions sources (fair use), public domain or make use of appropriate Creative Commons licenses.

      Maybe show me some links to images or websites with the kind of look you're after? I'll help you once I understand what you visually have in mind.

    • That is nice. I will try and see with the rest of the staff if we could arrange something, like a featured spot on the front page. Maybe we could become affiliated.
