Between the demise of Legends/rise of NuCanon and an increasingly hectic real life, I am no longer anywhere near as active on Wookieepedia as I used to be. I may only visit once or twice in a month now instead of every day like I used to.

I will continue to maintain and run the recurring tasks of my bot, AJTD6 and will consider new tasks on request, however new tasks may a little longer to complete as they will be done in my spare time. I also have email notifications enabled for messages on this page, so should respond in a reasonable amount of time, but I don't guarantee that (I reserve the right to be away from the computer for a few days at a time without notice here; therefore, urgent requests should be directed to a different administrator if I am not currently active on recent changes).

Beyond my bot and responding to messages here, I am not likely to take an active role in site administration/discussion or ordinary editing for a while. I may even resign my adminship sometime soon unless I feel more inclined to fully return to Wookieepedia.

Welcome to my talk page. All are welcome here. (Except trolls, who will be blocked.)

Please take a moment to read the following notes:

  • Don't ask to ask; just ask your question.
  • Please keep the conversation together in one place, so that it can be read easier. That means if you post here, I will reply here, and if I post on your talk page, please reply on that page, not here. If I don't reply to a message on your page within a couple of days, ping me here to trigger an email notification.
  • Please do not use repeat or non-descriptive headings like "Request", as these headings make the table of contents difficult to navigate, and duplicate headers complicate section linking in the event I need to link to a discussion from this page elsewhere.
  • Please do not engage in general chit-chat here. Wookieepedia is not a social network. If it doesn't relate to Wookieepedia or Wikia, it probably doesn't belong on this page.
  • Due to my reduced time on Wookieepedia, I no longer take copy-edit requests, period. This applies even for novice nominators and for articles with active objections for a copy-edit. Sorry, but I just don't have the time anymore.

Card game CT Edit

Hi MJ, thanks to your help with the card game issues! I thought I would let you know I just made a CT proposal in relation to our discussions. Have a good weekend! Manoof (talk) 03:07, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

Got it. I'll look at it later. I've been super-super-busy all month and haven't even looked at my watchlist in I think over three weeks, so I need to budget a whole afternoon or evening soon to get caught up on everything around here. —MJ— Comlink 03:20, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

Card game citations part 2 Edit

Hi MJ. As one of the bot masters and coding experts, I would appreciate if you could weigh and give us your thoughts on this thread. We're trying to solidify the new Card Game Citations idea before sending it to the Consensus Track again.--Richterbelmont10 R2 sig(come in R2!) 16:40, July 16, 2015 (UTC)

  • In the Card game citations thread, Tope requested that the font size of the cards be the same as the font size used in the {{C|}} template (like this). I reduced the font size and produced an example of what that would look like in the thread, I used the <small></small> command. However, this had the undesirable side-effect of making the the {{Po}} and similar template text "super small" (like this). Is it possible to make the card names small and keep the {{Po}} and similar template text the same size as the card? Like this:

  • Card: Bravo Pilot, Veteran Flyer (Picture only)

--Richterbelmont10 R2 sig(come in R2!) 18:29, August 20, 2015 (UTC)

The simple solution would be to put the </small> before the template instead of after the template. Alternatively, given that this will be done in Lua most likely, another solution that's cleaner from an HTML standpoint might be to remove the "small" tags from the {{Po}} and similar templates with a call to string.gsub(args.tags, "</?small>", ""). The cleanest and best solution would be to replace the small tags in the templates with a CSS class and code in MediaWiki:Common.css that renders the text small except when inside the list template. So yes, it can be done; it's just a matter of which way would be the best combination of ease and cleanness. —MJ— Holocomm 19:22, August 20, 2015 (UTC)

TenseEdit

i have been reading alot of the posts about the alien and other species on here and ive been noticing something that has been bugging me for a while why do all the descriptions refer to all the species in the past tense "they were" and so forth as far as i know these species haven't been wiped out so why are all the articles written as if they are Unsigned comment by Jinxo35 (talk • contribs).

All in-universe articles on Wookieepedia are written in the past tense, as Star Wars takes place "a long time ago". Please see the Manual of Style for more information. —MJ— War Room 19:53, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

Approval to Link HereEdit

Hello, Master Jonathan.

I am an administrator on the Disney Infinity Wiki. We are about to start a project there that calls for us to add a section at the bottom of certain pages that will link to the same subject’s page on other wikis. We are going to start soon, but we want to respect the work of other communities, so we are asking permission first. Would you and your community be okay with us linking to your wiki?

Thank you,

CerealBoxHead46. (My sig only works if I make a page for it first.) Unsigned comment by CerealBoxHead46 (talk • contribs).

You don't need our permission. :) Plenty of other sites link to our stuff in this manner, and I don't know of one case where they actually asked permission first. And we link to several other sites in the same manner also. Go right ahead. :) —MJ— Training Room 21:31, August 6, 2015 (UTC)
Alright, thank you! :)
