Terms of Use issues

Hi, thanks for alerting me of the issues.

The admin responsible for the CSS changes is User:CzechOut, I have left a message on his talk page alerting him to the issues you highlighted on my talk page. Thanks for making me aware of this, and CzechOut should be able to address these issues (as the changes were not my work and not in my realm of expertise). Thanks. --Tangerineduel / talk 15:45, May 3, 2011 (UTC)

No worries, thanks for keeping me updated. I'll check back in a few days! :) --daNASCAT WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 16:42, May 3, 2011 (UTC)
I'd like to echo, about a week too late, Tangerineduel's appreciation for your efforts to help us comply with TOU. More than that, I'd like to apologise for quite unwittingly violating them. I'm very sorry that you had to take the time to make the changes yourself, but I was pulled away from the wiki for a few weeks while I dealt with a family crisis. I completely understand your changes to the java. But I did want to talk about your changes to the CSS.
One of the key design features I wanted to implement was to have the drop-down navigation menus at the top of the pages to have a little bit of letter-spacing. I worked for some time to find what appeared to me was the precise amount of letter-spacing that the top bar could stand. And with 3px, I wasn't noticing any particular movement of the Random Page and Wiki Activity buttons, in either Firefox or Safari (Mac). Now sure, if you choose to zoom your page view in such a way that you're zooming the text only, you get some "bunching up" of the random/wiki act buttons — but that's true even with your removal of the letter-spacing. You can break any page if you zoom the text in enough. I'd really like to get some letter-spacing back, so that the list heading (e.g., "stories") matches the letter spacing in the drop-down beneath. Isn't there some amount of compromise between no letter-spacing and 3px letter-spacing possible?
Also, what's the TOU objection to defining the font-size of article text? Is no variation allowed?
Thanks again for your help, and for answering these questions.

Thanks for getting back to me and, really, it's no problem. We realize our TOU is sometimes a bit complex and that's why we come in and ask you to fix it yourselves instead of just rolling in and bashing things up. TOU is also a back and forth battle at Wikia. We love how users customize things and week after week, we keep looking at how things are working and examining if our policies are fair.
Letter spacing is fine the way it is now and you can do it in your article space however you want because it's changing how your wiki is presenting information as opposing to changing key elements of how your space functions. --daNASCAT WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 20:12, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks

Thanks for the quick correction on the Special:CreatePage issue! This lot would have lynched me if they couldn't create new pages easily over the weekend!

Christmas cheer

Happy holidays!

As this fiftieth anniversary year comes to a close, we here at Tardis just want to thank you for being a part of our community — even if you haven't edited here in a while. If you have edited with us this year, then thanks for all your hard work.

This year has seen an impressive amount of growth. We've added about 11,000 pages this year, which is frankly incredible for a wiki this big. November was predictably one of the busiest months we've ever had: over 500 unique editors pitched in. It was the highest number of editors in wiki history for a year in which only one programme in the DWU was active. And our viewing stats have been through the roof. We've averaged well over 2 million page views each week for the last two months, with some weeks seeing over 4 million views!

We've received an unprecedented level of support from Wikia Staff, resulting in all sorts of new goodies and productive new relationships. And we've recently decided to lift almost every block we've ever made so as to allow most everyone a second chance to be part of our community.

2014 promises to build on this year's foundations, especially since we've got a full, unbroken series coming up — something that hasn't happened since 2011. We hope you'll stick with us — or return to the Tardis — so that you can be a part of the fun!
