* Its a very poor feature which doesn't display closely related pages despite new settings and updates to attempt to make it better. Just because 2 pages have 3 categories in common, doesn't mean the page is remotely related, due to several large categories (ie uncommon, rare, epic categories). They really should scan the page, and check for any links to other pages, and display them first if they have enough cats in common. Remove it, and if they manage to make it better, then do a vote to re-add. [[User:Resa1983|Resa1983]] ([[User talk:Resa1983|talk]]) 00:47, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

* Displays random images/category images. Random isn't good, most recent stuff for Cataclysm is what should be displayed. Would have to add new categories just to make sure it doesn't display old or outdated stuff. Has issues with the {{t|for}} template.

Revision as of 00:47, December 29, 2010

Forums: Index WoWWiki general Keep or remove new optional features?

These three new wiki features have now been deemed optional, or opt-out:

  • Related pages
  • Category galleries
  • Image attribution

You can see an example of related page ("Read more") and image attribution at Project at Firewing Point. For an example of category galleries, see Category:Events.

Would you guys prefer to keep or remove some/all of these features? Please leave your feedback on each feature in the sections below. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 20:32, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

  • I really do not like this feature. One reason is that it often suggests pages to me that seem random. I find this annoying. ANother reason that on occasion it shows me an inappropriate image along with the related page. Not sure if this is a mistake or what, but it very much bothers me. Though if there was a way to just choose not to use this option, that would satisfy me. -Lauren the Weirdo (talkcontr) 15:25, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
    If you don't want to see the Related Pages (aka Read More section), you can add the following to Special:MyPage/wikia.css (or for you specifically, User:Lauren the Weirdo/wikia.css):
    .RelatedPagesModule { display: none; }

  • I don't like the way it displays narrow images, but I can live with it. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4:24 PM PST 23 Dec 2010
  • Keep, can be improved upon in the future though. HooperBandP (talk) 01:10, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
  • Agree with the above. Keep for now, improve for the future User:WowMiesha
  • Pretty cool idea. I agree with keeping it and improving in the future. -Lauren the Weirdo

  • It isn't image attribution. It is image updater/uploader attribution which is totally different. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4:24 PM PST 23 Dec 2010
  • Absolutely remove. Worse idea ever. HooperBandP (talk) 01:10, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Is this a vote? How are people going to know to vote? --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4:24 PM PST 23 Dec 2010

You can let people know by adding a link to this page to MediaWiki:Community-corner. Ausir(talk) 01:10, December 28, 2010 (UTC)
Done. I added a link here directly to the notification as well. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 3:25 PM PST 28 Dec 2010
