Hello once more!
Yeah that has embedded a "Okay, copy this into notepad before posting" habit in myself now, I guess it shall be one of those things that people will miss, but not necessarily want back if there is indeed a merge between the two :P
But anyhow, multiple thanks for the fixes and answers, I shall get back onto topic as opposed to fixes but before we do, I have noticed a QoL issue that the full option menu disappears from view at specific angles of scroll if the Wikia advert for the app is present http://i.imgur.com/ZYKr5cZ.png
I've also noticed that posts are able to flow past 999+ now with a specific integer reading on mouse over, this is very much so appreciated! Will there be any further developments to the "Posts not yet verified" section as previously talked about? We understand that it is quite tasking to be query a server for data so we're trying to limit just how much we request that would be of use compared to something like "display all approved post by ______". Its also unusual why the userlinks of insights link to their wikia profile as opposed to /d/ profile, not really much of any notable dislikes, just unusual none to less.
In its later and likely complete stage of /d/ and the eventual retirement of forums, will the desktop port of /d/ be embedded within our current MW framework to be accessed internally from the Wikia (Such as the forums we have now) or will it remain in the external pseudo-off site status that it is in now? This mainly concerns things such as accessibility of /d/ to our desktop users, the feasibility of interwiki ( double [['s) links and the transition between the two.
It has also come to my attention that we've yet to ask what exactly would happen to the forums post-migration, would they be archived such as our current (and before my time) Indexes? As a Wikia it should be important to us to at least consider our legacy submissions and the options of use we have for them.
Additionally, speaking of Interwiki links, will /d/ eventually follow the styling of our prefixing and allow for humans to be able to write them easier in the event they may need to (i.e Board:Ooer compared to catId=2834267617483556524 ) Of course this is more so a QoL change we can think of and would be okay either way with how this goes, if we are able to interwiki link these to begin with.
With regards to the roles, we're going to revert everyone that is currently a discussion mod to rollback and append the /d/ mod role to them if they desire it. If you're still okay with this, then please inform us when we can expect it to be live :) We wouldn't want our moderators to have their userrights removed unexpectedly when this change goes live.
Mod+ exclusive cat's
One thing that has come to our attention is that what would also be the possibility of rank-locked categories, whilst we do understand the values of a collective community (in which segregation is not something we wish to include over-excessively for the userbase to have equal opportunity ) but this is for our Moderation updates category, in which we inform the userbase what is changing on both your end and our own wikia /d/ ToS (found here http://warframe.wikia.com/d/f?catId=2834267024316696204&sort=latest ), we do not want users to be unable to reply to the threads WITHIN this category, but not start ones within this category as this is exclusively reserved for updates. The WARFRAME Forums also utilises this by allowing for only staff to post things within their "build updates" category, but allowing for users to reply to these. (found https://forums.warframe.com/forum/3-pc-update-build-notes/ ) I hope this makes sense as to what we are trying to explain?
Whilst we have no immediate plans to include a fully limited cat, or a cat only visible to users of role X, Y and Z due to holding our internal talks externally from the Wikia, I am sure that there would likely be call of it elsewhere, mainly for smaller Wikia's to have a place to contact staff with talks regarding updates pre-implementation.
Thats all for now, little smaller than usual but just a bit busier this week!
