New wiki[edit]

↓This is one of my wikis in the first stages, id be honoured if you could help ta' --Huge_bob 10:31, 2 Jumbly 2008 (UTC) its er... Its far down the page, sorry but im shit at formating. very far down: Hitchikers

Oh cool! A new wiki.... I'll have look at it later when I'm in the mood for formatting stuph. See you there some time in the future! -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:43, 2 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Just to keep you up to date, dxpenguin has joined and he's wrote an article on, you guessed it...penguins. Taylor has drawn up a detailed writing style page. --HUGE BOB 06:45, 7 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

Ooh, pretty table![edit]

Thanks for adding that template at the Illogic Book contents. Now I know how to make tables look good without doing too much work with the colors.

No probs. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:15, 3 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

Yahay! Thanks Testicles. I wonder if Nerd received any reply from Wikia about the Monobook thingy? -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 14:22, 3 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
I'll make a note to ask him when he next comes on illogic some time in 2009 ;) --Testostereich(ballsack) 14:23, 3 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Is Nerd usually on our IRC channel or was last night a one off? ;) -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 14:27, 3 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
T'was the biggest one off since the oldest man alive had an erection. --Testostereich(ballsack) 14:28, 3 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Hah, now that's a one off... -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 14:34, 3 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
id make another low brow comment to add to the pile, but i cant be bothered :P . Back to the site maintainance crap ;) after the responce he got from wikia in enquiring about monobook, he has decided we should try to locate some new hosting options. My suggestions are: Beg from somewhere, Go with a VPS like Linode or WiredTree and club together with some other wikis who want hosting / are against the monaco skin.--Silent Penguin 17:31, 4 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
That sucks. The idea of going independent has always been appealing to me, dunno about you but it gives a sense of more ownership - ie we aren't governed by what wikia thinks. I've got misgivings about free hosts as I've never tried them myself but I was thinking bandwidth limits might be an issue with paid hosts (I dunno, would 1Gig a month be enough for a wiki of our size?) - not a problem at wikia as they sorted everything out. Course you know, it would mean more effort on our parts ;). Begging for donations might be the only way to keep the site going through rocky periods. I'd be willing to put some cash towards the costs, should it come to that. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 18:03, 4 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Well, Our website has a DB size, discounting images of around 8 or 9 mg. So the base versions linode (Dedicated visual RAM:360mb, Diskspace:12GB, transfer limit:200GB/month, $20/month) and WiredTree offer (Dedicated visual RAM:384mb, Diskspace:40GB, transfer limit:600GB/month, $45/month) are ample for ours, and most likely several other websites needs (hence the suggestion of sharing costs. These two providers are non contract, meaning we arn't tied down to them for longer than what we pay for. WiredTree is slightly better, and we have a managed control panel, and Linode is empty, we have to manage everything ourselves unlike WT, but both provide fantastic reliability. We can also create a script that prevents images being downloaded and uploaded should the transfer limit becomes a bit tight. Asema thinks Wikifur and nerd42 suggested that the adventure wiki on EditThis might be interested in going solo. But freehosts usually arn't worth bothering with, they are like editthis was, more pain than they are worth.--Silent Penguin 19:53, 4 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
That sounds like a good deal actually - about £12 or £25 per month, so the cheapest would be what, £144 a year at cheapest? As long as shared hosting won't intrude too much on our own business and we get to have an illogicopedia.org domain address (eg. illogicopedia.org/wiki/article name) then we have ourselves a ticket out of Wikiadom and all its anti-Illogicopedianess! :p -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 20:00, 4 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Well, We need to talk about it in private, and figure out some sort of system, how we go about it, etc.--Silent Penguin 20:11, 4 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
I'll try and come on IRC this afternoon. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:30, 6 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Okie dokie nudge me when your online :D --Silent Penguin 12:37, 6 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

...[edit]

how and when do i become an admin? --HUGE BOB 10:24, 6 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

We aren't looking for any more admins at the moment because we have enough for our size of wiki. Plus, being an admin ain't all that different to being a regular user - we only get about 1 vandal a week and there's not that much stuff to delete (we try and keep all we can). Ideally we'd want a new admin to be sensible and know the site's guidelines and policies well - we can't just go around promoting anybody, y'know! :-P
PS If you win IOTM you get rollback privileges. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:30, 6 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

The frog on my shoulder told me to do it! --HUGE BOB 10:49, 6 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

Oh, ok, that's fine then. Just make sure you don't lick it. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:50, 6 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
I already have! What now? --HUGE BOB 10:51, 6 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Sit back and enjoy the ride, baby. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:52, 6 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
I can see a new colour made up of voices from beyond the ramble tree! ARG! IM GOING FUCKING NUTS! Oh and over in the hitchhikers guide we gonna merge with another wiki with the same name. --HUGE BOB 10:54, 6 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
I'd advise you to stay away from the microwave at this point. Also, I will take a look at Hitchhikers. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:58, 6 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

Dude, what?...[edit]

You took my Vandalpedia entry and made it an article? Impressive. However, my beard ran away. 21655 {screwed up / fixed your crappy grammOr / is made of beef, apparently} 15:31, 9 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

Vanity?[edit]

I hasent done any vanity pages though! HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 14:58, 13 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

I meant don't put templates on articles saying you made 'em or else some dinosaurs will have you with cheese on toast. Yeah, that's exactly what I meant to say. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 15:01, 13 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

Yeah ok, sorry about that --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 15:02, 13 Jumbly 2008 (UTC) You gonna be on the irc chat thingy? I went on there and just saw seppy --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 15:03, 13 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

I might come on later to disgust the hosting/moving from Wikia/dinosaurs eating people on toast issue, but for now I am fighting the monster under my bed. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 15:05, 13 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

EPIC[edit]

I saw your attempts to modernise the ol' template, and I think it's probably good idea. But, any replacement would still have to work pretty hard to overthrow the establishment. Either way, keep going, you've got the right idea man, maybe the pictures and fonts need changing (slightly) or maybe the nature of the template could be changed. Either way, I'm bored, and felt bad for not explaining why i ghosted your edits so readily. --Testostereich(ballsack) 20:26, 13 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)


Sis' Project:Mischiefpedia[edit]

Can Mischiefpedia be a sister project. Wikia rejected it. If it can't be a sis' project can it at least be a brother project? Or a second cousin project????? Plllzlzzzzlzlzlzlzl!?!?!?!!??!!?!?!? -Mr.RFK (Musical Meat Cleaver)

Hindleyite, could u make the new logo for Mischiefpedia? My logo is crappy and I saw what you did at the hitchhiker s guide so I am gessing you r really good at making logos. So could you please? Thanks, RagglefragglekingIsEatingYourBagels 12:57, 15 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

I'll see if I have time. Where'd you get that image of a slingshot from? -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 13:35, 15 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
I contributed to that article, but rfk improved it --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 15:02, 15 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
What article? Or were you referring to Mischiefpedia? -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 15:40, 15 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Which slingshot? The one on the logo or the one in the article?- RagglefragglekingIsEatingYourBagels 16:28, 15 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Whichever is the best quality. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 16:31, 15 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Well the one in the slingshot article is a slingshot being held by a boy and the other is from this image:
this is the pocket guide to mischief and i made the current crap logo from it.

Also i made antoher log but i like the original one better than the new one i made. here's the old new one: Lmisschief_logo_new.jpg

OK, cheers -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 16:50, 15 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

there we go~ Thanks Hindley I can always count on you. Now to more important matters. I have been working on Trickopedia since it is a sister project to mpedia and it is utterly abandoned. I want to fix it up more but i need admin priv how do i get them if there is no active admins there?!?!?!?!?-18:04, 15 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)~
You'll have to ask somebody at Wikia. Mention that you adopted the wiki (or whatever) and are interested in developing it and they'll give you admin access. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 18:17, 15 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
I asked Catherine Munro- RagglefragglekingIsEatingYourBagels 18:28, 15 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

Oddopedia[edit]

I think this needs a bit more help. I don't know if you use it much but it could still be good. I think the articles Ive written for it really show its potentials. Here's the only thing, every admin on there has either lost their password or just abandoned it long ago. Click [1] --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 06:46, 16 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

I dunno, can't see what the difference to Illogicopedia is. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 15:50, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Maybe its more stupid. Its ok, I dunno why I mentioned it in the first place! --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 18:19, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
That's ok, always willing to help out new wikis but I've never really got into Oddopedia. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 18:22, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

Template altercation[edit]

I think Template:Spooned should be changed from "...were spooned" to "...were spooned from" so that only the source will need to go in the parameter. --I forgot 20:19, 16 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

Now sorted! Just one o' those things that has existed since the wiki was verrrry young and was never changed. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 15:49, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

?[edit]

How do I add text fonts to articles? thx --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 15:09, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

You mean like this?
Just leave a space at the beginning of the line.
Or you could use the <pre>Text goes here</pre> tags which achieves the same thing but with no wiki formatting. Beware, there is no word wrap for this!
Alternatively, you could use <font face=courier>Yer text</font>. Par example:
Yes I can hack the Internet! Suck it, society.
One thing to remember with this: use only very common fonts, like Times, Verdana, Arial, Courier, Tahoma, else it might not appear on users' systems. I yope that's what you wanted to know! -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 15:55, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Yes that's exactly what I wanted to know, thanks --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 18:17, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Oh, and how do I make text larger? Oh and how the hell to I make templates? I don't understand the coding. --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 18:22, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
There's a couple of ways to make text larger. The simplest is to use some basic HTML tags:
<big>Your text here</big>
You can nest these to make text even larger aswell:
<big><big>Your text here</big></big>
A second way to do it is this:
<p style="font-size:100%;line-height:110%">Your text here</p>
Where the percentage size of the text is adjustable. You can also change the line spacing with line height percentage.
As for templates, depends what you want to do really. I generally just look for a similar one, copy and modify it. Planning anything in particular? I can point you to an existing one with the same formatting. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 19:15, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
So you just copy and paste? That's what I do already. Thanks for the text formatting stuff, it really will help. --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 19:23, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Oh and just one more thing! What do you type in to create the background colour of a template? Its like this isn't it?
#7889900

Or something? --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 19:25, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

Yeah or you could just use the name of the colour, for example 'red', 'crimson', 'lightblue' etc. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 19:30, 17 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

mkays, sorry.

WHAT THE BLOODY HELL?[edit]

What is going on with the damn picture import thing recently? I cant insert any pics! Have you encountered this problem? --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 11:15, 23 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

I haven't uploaded anything recently but I'll have a go now... -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:23, 23 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Its weird. Just upload it into an article and you'll see what I mean. --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 11:31, 23 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Seems fine to me. Are you having problems with a particular image? -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:32, 23 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
All images. Its not confined to only one. --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 11:39, 23 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
How are you inserting the pic into the article and what exactly is happening? -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:40, 23 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
I click on upload image right? Then when I get the image up it gives me the option to make the image larger or smaller and to the right and to the left and all that. BUT i cant do either and when i click insert picture it doesn't do it. And these are with images i didn't have problems with before. --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 11:45, 23 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Yeah I have been having the same problem. i click insert and it does notin! - RagglefragglekingIsEatingYourBagels 12:11, 23 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

about this picture import thingy[edit]

er yeah, I'm finding it really annoying at the moment. I find it very difficult to do the embedding thing so what could fix the import window? I just want some advice, do you think it could be something to do with my Internet security settings? --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 13:47, 25 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

OK, I just tested the image upload thing (for the first time) and it doesn't work for me either. I think this is a Wikia problem that might need to be reported. So, not your security settings I don't think. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 13:52, 25 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

image upload thing[edit]

I cant imagine it was to do with wikia itself cos it would have been sorted by now. Maybe im speaking out my ass but... HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 11:13, 1 Ergust 2008 (UTC)

Do you know if the image upload works on other wikia sites? -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:14, 1 Ergust 2008 (UTC)
I'll check --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 11:23, 1 Ergust 2008 (UTC)
It seems like all wikis are fucked, in terms of the image upload thing. Look, the reason why I'm making such a big thing of this is because i find just a lot more easier to use the tool box and its much quicker. Maybe Ive been going on about it to much but i think wikia should sort it out. Or somebody. --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 11:31, 1 Ergust 2008 (UTC)
I can appreciate that and since there are quite a few users that use it, I suspect Wikia really should have done something by now (those lazy Monaco-munchers!). Until they do, I suppose we'll just have to make do with the manual image insertion - if you've got any problems with it just ask me and I'll give you a hand. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:36, 1 Ergust 2008 (UTC)
Its alright i think Ive grasped the concept of manual image insertion now. --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 11:39, 1 Ergust 2008 (UTC)
OK. Still, wikia should get off their arses and do something about it instead of trying to please advertisers all the time. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:40, 1 Ergust 2008 (UTC)

Acquiring Articles from other sites[edit]

I was wondering if I can put articles from other wikias that may be being deleted on Illogicopedia when they get deleted? I was wondering because I've seen some good articles on Uncyclopedia up for deletion. Thanks.


-- --->T3<--- 00:04, 2 Ergust 2008 (UTC)

Yes, by all means do so! We have a guide on How to import pages from other wikis that might be of use... the best way is to copy/paste - some text taken from the page:
  1. Copy the source text of the article you are moving
  2. Paste into new article on Illogicopedia (which you will have to create)
  3. Leave a note on the talk page and paste edit log where appropriate/necessary. See here for an example.
The final step is to state where you got the article from. Illogicopedia already has a selection of templates for content moved from other wikis:
Alternatively, send an admin the exported XML file and they will upload it for you.
And that's about it! Any more problems, please let me know about it. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:31, 2 Ergust 2008 (UTC)

Pictures[edit]

Sorry if im not allowed to post on this page because im new, but you asked me to put pictures on my story but I don't know how can you help me? Mwow513 22:17, 1 Ergust 2008 (UTC)

OK, here's a rough guide on how to insert a picture to the article.
  1. Upload an image to the database (or find an existing one, such as Image:Example.jpg).
  2. Use something like the following code to insert the picture as a thumbnail:
    [[Image:Example.jpg|thumb|230px|Caption goes here]]
    Where 'Example.jpg' is the name and extension of the pic you want to insert. Just copy and paste it from the page name. You can also alter the '230px' to change the size of the image, or remove the 'thumb' bit to get rid of the grey frame.
If you have any problems with this, just let me know about it and I'll be happy to help you out. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:41, 2 Ergust 2008 (UTC)

Fig.1 a typical illogicapedian

I'm quite good at drawing and design and Ive got a graphics tablet, do you think i could design any of the new logos or general pictures you may need? --HUGE BOB formerly binclin Fdx.jpg 13:07, 3 Ergust 2008 (UTC)

Here's one i made earlier....

You've got a graphics tablet? Don't take the pill, it'll make you all pretentious and suchlike! That pic is pretty good, any chance of jazzing it up a bit? Y'know, a bit more colour perhaps, and I'll put it on VFI. Aaaaaaand we're always looking for original images to spice up the front page, so scribble away and good stuff might happen! -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 13:58, 3 Ergust 2008 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

I used to be an admin on ED. I still use the site, but I'm just here because it's down and I'm bored. I may have a look around this place and approach it with an open mind. I really don't like Uncyclopedia but if this place is different... then it may just be OK for me.--MonkeyMang 14:12, 3 Ergust 2008 (UTC)

Glad to hear of it, and honoured to have an (ex) ED admin on Illogic! We don't really have any affiliation with ED but we have had EDers in the past. Uncyclopedia has become a bit bureaucratic recently and way too deletionist so we get a lot of their estranged users hanging about. Hope you enjoy it here, and as I said, feel free to go mad - almost anything is accepted. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 14:20, 3 Ergust 2008 (UTC)
Uncyclopedia seem to insist on deleting anything that's actually funny, and keeping the stuff that's not. Having said that, #5 and #6 of the Illogicopedia:Commandments don't sit too well with me (hell, even Wikipedia isn't censored like that), but I may do some more editing on that Grawp page.--MonkeyMang 14:38, 3 Ergust 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I have seen it myself: admins compete to delete - not good IMO.
Commandments #5 and #6 are more about cyberbullying and such like - their inclusion/wording has been debated since the dawn of time (well, Illogicopedia anyway) and, as mentioned, are just suggestions for user behaviour. They're there to stop vandals and bullies but are otherwise not really taken too seriously - we like to take a laid back stance. Critical review is perfectly fine, as is personal opinion on celebrities and stuff in the public eye (as long as it's not extremely biased). -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 14:43, 3 Ergust 2008 (UTC)
