IC2 Navbox

Alright, so I did the first bit today, but I don't have the admin rights needed to accept the page. I can keep updating it all, but I don't think the changes will display until someone with admin rights accepts what I'm adding. -- Padfoote Staff • TalkContributions 22:54, 16 June 2014 (BST)

It doesn't matter if you can't sign it off, I'll bug Retep998 or something :P

uh, wut. Why doesn't everyone have perms to edit navboxes? /me looks into it and hopefully changes it -- SatanicSantaAdminEditor 03:20, 17 June 2014 (BST)
I've removed protection on Template:Navbox IndustrialCraft 2 and Template:Navbox Steve's Carts. There are only a few other protected pages, and they all make sense. -- SatanicSantaAdminEditor 03:26, 17 June 2014 (BST)

Are you adding things from IC2 Experimental? If so, you or someone (could be myself) needs to change the Mod Maintainers list, so that it doesn't say that we aren't documenting IC2 Exp. -- SatanicSantaAdminEditor 19:06, 17 June 2014 (BST)

Yes, so really it does need changing. The old IC2 info is really kept on the IC2 Wiki, because no one has got round to updating it :D Chocohead (talk) Since it's now unprotected, I'll change it :)

Misuse of the 'Usage' Section

Hi Chocohead. Just to let you know, we don't add crafting grids in a Usage Section, don't we Paddy?... :(

At most we just link to the page the item or block is used in. Here is the page that I'm talking about: http://wiki.feed-the-beast.com/Raw_Carbon_Fibre

--RealSketch (talk) 20:05, 18 June 2014 (BST)RealSketch

Yup, Real is right. Please read the article creation guideline for more information. -- SatanicSantaAdminEditor 20:29, 18 June 2014 (BST)
Oops :S Chocohead (talk)
Actually you shouldn't even list recipes it is used in in the Usage section. Rather if the item's main purpose is to be crafted into something else, like raw carbon fibre into carbon mesh, you casually mention that in the description. Otherwise, you don't mention it at all. Retep998 Bunny Overlord•talkcontribs 00:35, 19 June 2014 (BST)
Is the usage section just for what the item can do on it's own then? Chocohead (talk)
The usage section is where you explain what it can do and how. -- SatanicSantaAdminEditor 02:37, 20 June 2014 (BST)

Don't worry about it, we were all newbies at one point...well, I still kinda am. :( Just remember for future reference. Also, new siggy! :D --RealSketch TalkContributions 16:32, 20 June 2014 (BST)

IC2 and whatnot

Hey, you're doing great with IC2, and its related addons. Don't worry, I'm not here to complain. Seeing as (from what I've observed) you're writing articles correctly and racing through documenting IC2, do you mind doing the EU page for me sometime in the future. Seeing as I mention it on a few pages and the links provide no page -and you seem to know IC2 very well. http://wiki.feed-the-beast.com/index.php?title=Energy_Units&action=edit&redlink=1

I'll approve it as soon as you do it, as well as most other pages you edit. :) -- RealSketch •Staff •TalkContributions 21:13, 24 June 2014 (BST)

Immibis' Advanced Machines page

Hi. Would you mind rewriting the Immibis Advanced Machines page a little bit? It stops making sense in the second sentence. Thanks :P -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 21:00, 28 June 2014 (BST)

I'll have a look at it Chocohead NagAdditions 21:40, 28 June 2014 (BST)
The bit that says "They only go up to 75% of what the Induction Furnace goes up to" doesn't make any sense. Other than that, thanks. -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 17:33, 29 June 2014 (BST)
Ahhh, that bit. I'll rewrite it some more Chocohead NagAdditions 17:44, 29 June 2014 (BST)
Alright, so here's the problem with it, since I haven't been explaining it well. What it "goes up to" isn't actually explained at all, so the rest of the sentence means nothing. -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 18:25, 29 June 2014 (BST)
Hmmmmm. I'll try saying it another way. Chocohead NagAdditions 20:09, 29 June 2014 (BST)


When you create a template, you must add it to the template list. Failure to do so goes against the template guideline. This isn't a warning, just please do follow this in the future. I've already added it to the list. -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 21:11, 28 June 2014 (BST)

Oops :S Chocohead NagAdditions 21:40, 28 June 2014 (BST)


I don't think we actually use the shapeless thing here. At least not that I can see. It's too vague in the picture, and doesn't actually show anything. IMO it's much better to just write "This recipe is shapeless." above the recipe. If someone were to make it so that |shapeless=true would write "Shapeless" on the top of the grid, that'd be awesome, but I doubt it'll happen. -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 01:52, 30 June 2014 (BST)

We do use the shapeless parameter. -- 19:14, 4 July 2014 (BST)
No one uses it. It is so unclear what it means, and most people won't even notice it. -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 01:19, 5 July 2014 (BST)

A barnstar for you!

Keep up the great content! RealSketch •Staff •TalkContributions 18:25, 4 July 2014 (BST)

How fancy, thanks :) Chocohead NagAdditions 19:44, 4 July 2014 (BST)

Lol, thanks for that edit just now. Feel free to correct any grammatical mistakes on any of my articles! :)
I'll approve them as soon as you do.

Explanation of something

"god knows what's wrong with the iron chest's icon though", the problem is that for some reason the Iron Chest is in the Vanilla tilesheet, rather than the Iron Chests tilesheet. So, when you set the mod param to IC, it looks for the IC tilesheet, rather than the Vanilla tilesheet, which uses V. See my sandbox for a visible explanation. -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 01:32, 5 July 2014 (BST)

That makes sense, apart from the fact that it's on the vanilla tilesheet rather than the iron chests :S Chocohead NagAdditions 12:54, 5 July 2014 (BST)

A barnstar for you!

Congratulations! RealSketch •Staff •TalkContributions 19:05, 29 July 2014 (BST)
Wait what are we congratulating for? -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 19:25, 29 July 2014 (BST)
He fixes all my messups, grammar mistakes and most importantly, navbox major messups. :P
--RealSketch •Staff •TalkContributions 20:25, 29 July 2014 (BST)

Iron Chest tile

Please stop changing the mod parameter in various templates and such to "V". Eventually I'm going to (or make Retep) fix the Vanilla and Iron Chest tilesheet, so changing it is not productive. Thanks! -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 23:05, 3 August 2014 (BST)

Fine. Chocohead NagAdditions 01:21, 4 August 2014 (BST)

You might like this question

Do you want to join the wiki team? -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 23:26, 11 August 2014 (BST)

Sure, that'd be nice :) Chocohead NagAdditions 00:09, 12 August 2014 (BST)
There's a poll going on by the staff on the Project:Staff's Noticeboard. -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 00:40, 12 August 2014 (BST)
Gee, you guys are nice :) What does being on the wiki team let you do that I already can't do now? Chocohead NagAdditions 00:59, 12 August 2014 (BST)
You'll be in new usergroups. Currently you are in Autoconfirmed users. You'll be added to Staff, Editor, Autochecked Users, and Reviewers. You can see their uses on Special:ListGroupRights. Additionally, you will have the +AVfrt flags on #FTB-Wiki on esper, the FTB Helper tag on TS, and have access to the hidden section on the FTB Forums. You will also have a much higher say in things that go on with the wiki. I asked retep if this sums it up, "Also in case shit breaks we get to blame him as the scapegoat" -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 01:08, 12 August 2014 (BST)
He'll be blamed quite a bit then. :P -- Padfoote Staff • TalkContributions 01:16, 12 August 2014 (BST)

Do you have a forum account? If not, you'll need one. -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 19:10, 12 August 2014 (BST)

No, but I'll make one now. Chocohead NagAdditions 19:11, 12 August 2014 (BST)
I assume it will be under the same name? -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 19:26, 12 August 2014 (BST)
Yes, it is. Chocohead NagAdditions 19:27, 12 August 2014 (BST)
That message implies that the account has been created, but I cannot find it. Do you have your settings all weird or something? (you could always just link me to your profile) :P -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 19:32, 12 August 2014 (BST)

Welcome to the Wiki Team!


RealSketch •Staff •TalkContributions 20:15, 12 August 2014 (BST)

Hurrah! :D Chocohead NagAdditions 20:30, 12 August 2014 (BST)


Hey, I don't know how often you'll be checking your FTB forums account (and I just released you can't even see the hidden section yet :P), but can you drop by the Staff Noticeboard? Thanks, and welcome to the team. Hope you enjoy your stay. -- Padfoote Staff • TalkContributions 23:01, 12 August 2014 (BST)

I focus a lot on the IC2 forums, so I don't check FTB that much, but I'll at least visit more often now Chocohead NagEditsStaff 23:07, 12 August 2014 (BST)

Image uploading

Please review your file uploads after they are uploaded. -- SatanicSantaTalkContribsAdmin 22:27, 17 August 2014 (BST)

They don't do that automatically? OK then. Chocohead NagEditsStaff 22:31, 17 August 2014 (BST)

Non-FTB mods

As I can see here, IC2CA is not in any public modpacks. I talked to Jaded and Slow about non-FTB mods, and we (wiki staff) are supposed to be focusing on the FTB mods, and then the non-FTB mods. So, it's fine for IC2CA to be in the mod maintainer list, but until everything FTB is done, staff is not to document it, unless you made it. I'm bummed too, I wanted to document Better Dungeons :P. Also redlink mod pages aren't to be in the dropdown. I'll add it if there is a page for it. -- SatanicSantaContribs•Administrator and Editor 05:07, 23 August 2014 (BST)

OK then. I'll make the main page for it, and maybe the navbox, but leave making the other pages. Chocohead NagEditsStaff 12:40, 23 August 2014 (BST)

IC2 Fluids

I just looked at IndustrialCraft 2 Fluids to see how you set it up, and that's a pretty awesome and clever way of displaying each fluid in a specific mod. I like it. -- Padfoote Staff • TalkContributions 15:10, 29 August 2014 (BST)

It is awesome. It's so awesome, that it is now the standard for mods that add a lot of fluids. -- SatanicSantaContribs•Administrator and Editor 18:16, 29 August 2014 (BST)
Gee thanks :) Chocohead NagEditsStaff 19:57, 29 August 2014 (BST)

Uploading images

Did you know you can upload new versions of images without deleting the original? Crazy, I know, but it really helps to preserve the history so we can see how the file has changed. Retep998 Bunny Overlord•talkcontribs 20:47, 30 August 2014 (BST)

The only reason I deleted them was because it hadn't changed, I had just accidentally uploaded it twice :S Chocohead NagEditsStaff 21:34, 30 August 2014 (BST)
