  • Hey there! I'm from over at Acepedia, and I saw that you guys had a countdown system on your home page for the Tower vendors stock refresh. We've been trying to get a system going to have a "daily" countdown that could auto-update without us having to update it every day. If you could walk me through the code/implementation of your countdown system, I would highly appreciate it. Thanks :)

  • Hi Josh, in an unexpected turn of events, Gjallarhorn has appeared in Xur stock and the name of the original image is causing a problem. If you have a look over at the main page, you'll notice that an image of Gjallarhorn from the beta is being used instead of the weapons icon due to the name of the exisiting image. I'd have a crack at fixing it myself, but I thought you might be able to get it done more cleanly, and faster.

  • Hey Josh! Wanted to reach out to you and ask if you'd like to play a few session with some Wikia folks to get some footage for the video we proposed. We have two people who work at Wikia who play on XBO, we don't need much more than an event or two. If you have a favorite moment you'd like to capture alone or in a fireteam, go for it as well. Weekly Strikes/Nightfall/PVP are also totally cool to do.

    Staff Member CaptMattSparrow would be open to playing with you if you have the time. That's also his live username so feel free to shoot him a friend request!

    • Hi Josh. I have the list of moments we still need, so please let me know if you are interested in joining up this week to capture a few, or if you would prefer to capture some with your usual group. We would love more footage of people interacting in Fireteams, so ideally you would capture the footage with your mic enabled. 

      As a reminder, here are the video capture instructions for Xbox One:

    • Hi both, this sounds awesome to me. I usually do weekly raids/arena so I can capture these if you need. Matt if you throw me the list I can see what I can grab on Xbox :)

  • Hello!

    The countdown timer hit 00:00 at exactly 9pm PDT but instead of resetting back to 07:00:00:00   it went into negative numbers.  Help?   Portal Countdown

  • All is well with the Sparks countdown and the Navigation Portal..   but I have a question about the NavButton. Is it possible for the Title to also be a link?  Rather than seeing the  More.....  which I have linked to category pages... I have a couple users that said they were trying to get to Classes by clicking on Classes but it wasn't going anywhere.  Well, it wont because that's the {{{title}}}. This is not something they HAVE to have. Just wondering if it's do-able.

  • Did you notice this recent post about API keys being required: https://www.bungie.net/en/Clan/Post/39966/143127235/0/0

    I know you've done some nice work with the API, so i imagine you're keeping up to date on that.

    But brings me to what I was initially going to ask you, regarding the API. seeing all the red links on the site is frustrating to me. it would be nice if there was a site that would make an on-demand API call based on a form (like name and/or class of the item), present the person with a templated page for verification/slight editing/image attachment, then be able to press another button to have it uploaded to the wiki. It would streamline page creation immensly, in my opinion.

    Of course, restricting the page might get a bit dicey. Your API scripts, if I don't miss my guess, are run on a box that only you have access to. Having something that can push directly to the wiki on a semi-public site might be too insecure. However, some steps could be taken to make sure the form is protected - apache support per-directory user/pass, as does google's hosting site.

    I have a webhost I barely use - snowwolf.org - if such a project would need a place to live. This way you, me, Vektor, or other approved editors to use it, contributing to the quality of the wiki.

    • Hey. Yeah I've included my API key in all my requests for this very eventuality :) Thanks for pointing that out though, I'll know if anything happens on the 5th this is why.

      Also that's not too bad of an idea. We could just use normal Wikia forms and allow my bot to read off a page with your requests. I'm going to start work on something soon though that'll periodically go through and update/add pages using the API.

    • I haven't used wiki forms much, so i'd be interested to see how this transpires. Bit different than what I was thinking, but it could still work. Maybe that wiki page should be protected, so vandals don't taint the bot with invalid data.

        Loading editor
    • Well it's been done before where someone fills in a form and it updates a page. The form could be protected by the abusefilter to stop people abusing the bot.

  • Hey T3CHNOCIDE, 

    I was wondering if you could possibly help me redesign the homepage over at the Mortal Kombat Wiki, since we are in the process of updating the wiki, as we already updated some of the templates and the design of the wiki itself. Our homepage still needs to be updated, but it's something I was never good at making myself. I know you're good at designing nice UI's in general, notably on here and over at Halo, so that's why I came to see if you can possibly help me out here.

    Thanks, Xperia.

    • Hey dude. I'm happy to help how I can, however I'm not very free these days because of work and social commitments. If you have small jobs let me know and I'll help with what ever time I have free.

  • First of all, I wanted to say that the new look for the Destiny Wiki is amazing. I especially love the front page navigation box and really want to try it out over at Skyforge to replace my content box. I am currently working with the publishers on a content push and I showed them your page. I asked one of my fellow staff members who has worked with you about the design and he didn't think you would mind if I 'borrowed' it (I'm still learning css so we will see how successful I am) and suggested I check in with you, which of course is the cool thing to do. If you don't mind, I would really like to use it, providing I can figure it out. Im also a Bcrat at Skyforge Wiki, so it's kinda my second home right now and I want to make it look as brilliant as possible.

    • The timer will be an hour off if the servers switch with daylight savings time. Though I can't imagine why they'd bother. Daylight savings time is such a pain for coding that most businesses never bother.

      If the server does change with daylight savings let me know. I'll switch the code over to GMT + 1

    • Also no problem, happy to help!

  • Hey there, Josh. Late last week, I posted a blog asking for the Destiny community to share their favorite moments and memories from Year One of Destiny. After we accumulate a list, we're looking to capture some of those moments. 

    I'm stopping by to ask if you'd be interested in taking part in some of that video capturing. You can play with some of your friends, or even some members of Wikia Staff (Jorge, Grimm, and myself play on PS4). 

    I know you're been busy lately, but if you have the time and are interested, just let me know. We won't have the list figured out until next week.  Feel free to post some of your favorite moments in the blog if any come to mind for ya.

    Also, amazing work on the wiki redesign and all of the API additions, it's really helped push this wiki to the next level. Can't thank ya enough for the contributions!

    • Hey dude, hope all is well! Yeah I saw, for some reason my original post never went through - I've re-added it now.

      I'm totally up for helping record. I'm on Xbox One, but I'm happy to just grab some screen grabs of anything you guys need. Like Aethon/Crota fights, story modes, strikes, chests, etc.

    • You're the man, thank you! Sucks we can't party up, but I'll letcha know if we need anything next week. Take it easy : >
