I tagged sopme pictures and now I see that the whole function is gone :( Unsigned comment by Aggrajag (talk • contribs).

  • Hey Aggrajag. The administrators of the site decided that it was not a worthwhile function, and as such, we requested for it be removed from Wikia. Also, please remember to sign your name with four tildes (~~~~) when posting in forums and talk pages. Cheers, Greyman(Paratus) 20:01, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
  • It wasn't just the administrators. It was a nearly-unanimous decision by the community at the September 9 Mofference. It just took Wikia a while to respond to our requests to make it go away. It may be re-introduced in the future after it stops being hopelessly broken. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 20:14, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Well, ok. Certain Wikia Janitors poked the Staff at their most recent Skype meeting, to remind them of what the community had decided. They asked me, via IRC, if the administrators of Wookieepedia still wanted it removed—I said yes, since I had witnessed the near endless whining which had come from the feature. This has all happened over the last week or so, and as Culator has said, if the feature is cleaned up and fixed to do what it is supposed to do, then we'll most likely get it back at that time.

  • Oh I didn't know that... :( too bad, because I liked this feature, maybe in the future there will be some really nice picture-galleries for the wikias. --Aggrajag 05:35, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
  • and maybe you can tell me why the search-tool, which shows suggestions for every letter entered, disappeared in the old layout? I don't like the new layout and really need this search-tool ;) --Aggrajag 05:40, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
    • Not sure why that went away—I liked it too. But if you want to switch back to the old layout, just go to your preferences, click "Skins", and select "MonoBook." -- Ozzel 05:43, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
  • I'm glad it's gone. We got some really weird tags, and I could never take any of the weirder ones off. -- SFH 07:08, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Aggrajag: Our new Image Categorization project is replacing our existing galleries; when finished, it should make finding a given image much easier than our existing program. jSarek 10:26, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
