  • About some 16px icons having a grey background: Icons upped by me (even if they are the first version) seem to have this problem with keeping their transparency on resizing. Template:Navbox_Category_Cells has several with a grey background and they were all freshly uploaded by me a few weeks ago. In their original size, the transparency works. So the problems we searched for a while ago isn't related to caching wrong versions like we thought. Any ideas? --MilConDoin (talk) 18:59, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Grid Redstone Dust Image

Hey Jinbobo, I was recently doing some updates on ComputerCraft pages when I found that the redstone image for the grid appears to be missing. Sadly I am not a high enough user to upload images or I would just fix it myself. Would you be able to add in the image? Thank you! PonglesEsquire (talk) 21:04, 15 July 2013 (BST)

Large images

Is it possible to render out tiny images larger, or does this require new images? This for the ore infobox. Jurrepur 08:59, 16 July 2013 (BST)

  • New images will make it clearer, but it is possible. -- Jinbobo SysOp · BotOp · talk · contribs 09:02, 16 July 2013 (BST)

Cell doc

  • I think Template:Grid/Cell doc could be improved. Is there any special reason why that template is substituted and not transcluded? I think I can improve it so it can be transcluded with {{Cell doc}}. I will do all the changes on a different page so when you will be happy with it, we can replace the original page.

    • One way to do it is to search the page you want to make and then click "Create page on this wiki" -- auris331

Template changes

  • I moved Template:DE, standing for disambiguation entry, to Template:Disambiguation_item. I also created Template:DI which redirects to Template:Disambiguation_item. This is to keep it inline with Template:Navbox_item. Feel free to make changes as you see fit. I thought the Template Master should know :P -- AgentTadpole Staff · talk · contribs 12:07, 21 July 2013 (BST)

New Navbox

  • Just for the record: I've just created a new navigation box for Advanced Machines here: {{Navbox Advanced Machines}} which I'm going to use in new articles from that section. Any remarks? If not, I can add it to the general list of the templates. Alongside with some future navboxes I might create.
PS: Do you mind if I start using {{DI}} in the disambiguation pages? You haven't commented on it since the creation of the docs.

    • Content in navboxes is managed by the article team, plus I don't know what's missing and what's out of place or misspelled. And this should go on the Staff's Noticeboard. (Read the notices on the top of the page) -- Jinbobo SysOp · BotOp · talk · contribs 08:08, 28 July 2013 (BST)


There needs to be made one change to the base math (I had that same error in my old code, so no error on your side). Change needs to be done in the MediaWiki:common.js, for which I don't have editing rights:

Old Code:

/** Clip tank image **/
	usage = $(this).children(".Tank-usage").html();
	max = $(this).children(".Tank-max").html();
	addtop = $(this).children(".Tank-add-top").html();
	clipbottom = $(this).children(".Tank-bottom").html();
	if(max == 0) max = 10000;
	height = $(this).find("img").height();
	width = $(this).find("img").width();
	cliptop = (height/2*(1-usage/max))*2+addtop;
	cliptop = Math.round(cliptop*100)/100;
	$(this).css("clip","rect("+String(cliptop)+"px auto "+clipbottom+" auto)");

New Code: (change only regarding the cliptop= lines)

/** Clip tank image **/
	usage = $(this).children(".Tank-usage").html();
	max = $(this).children(".Tank-max").html();
	addtop = $(this).children(".Tank-add-top").html();
	clipbottom = $(this).children(".Tank-bottom").html();
	if(max == 0) max = 10000;
	height = $(this).find("img").height();
	width = $(this).find("img").width();
	cliptop = (ceil(height/2*(1-usage/max)))*2+addtop;
	$(this).css("clip","rect("+String(cliptop)+"px auto "+clipbottom+" auto)");

The image override I should test (if you mean something like {{T|GUI liquid 10 Biofuel.png|10000|10000|height=116}} instead of {{T|biofuel|10000|10000|height=116}}) works perfectly.

Other strange stuff I found: Some values for usage seem to bring very wrong results. usage = 1000 and 6000 for example result in no display. If I view the html sourcecode, cliptop seems to be too big by a factor of 10. But only for some of those values. --MilConDoin (talk) 11:40, 4 August 2013 (BST)

Reminder for the L-template

Jin, I hope I'm doing this correctly but anyways. Last week you asked me to post on your talk page to remind you about adapting the L-template.

Just to help remembering: on the Mods/nl page, Thermal Expansion is listed under the letter C, rather than T.

--Beleriond (talk) 10:37, 14 August 2013 (GMT+1)

  • You'll have to wait until I wrap up the new crafting grid system. You can always use normal links as a fallback. :P -- Jinbobo = Wiki Team Lead = 11:57, 14 August 2013 (BST)

Possible bug for the Steve's Carts pages

I've just finished translating a couple of Steve's Carts addon pages and I noticed that both in the original English pages and the Dutch translations, the text doesn't seem to wrap somehow.

As an example: the text in the Usage section for the Farmer addon/module goes off my screen and doesn't provide me with a scrollbar to scroll left/right at the bottom of the screen. In editing mode, the same happens in the editing box.

Clueless why this is or why it happens. For now I'm holding off translating pages that have this since it's really awkward.

Crafting grids, specifically GT machines

crafting grids for GT machines have parameters for EU and such. While the grid icons themselves may be animated, I do not know how to animate the text, if there even is such a way. Should I expect such a feature soon, or should I just split that sort of stuff into separate crafting grids? Retep998 (talk) 17:58, 24 August 2013 (BST)

New Crafting Grid doesn't preview properly

When editing a page with a crafting grid, the preview makes it appear empty. Until this is fixed I'm gonna be laying out my crafting grids in a sandbox before pushing any of them. --Nupanick (talk) 20:03, 7 September 2013 (BST)

Deleting Template:Pn

Why exactly did you delete Template:Pn? It isn't really redundant - otherwise you would have to write a lot more code for the same result and it would be quite useful on disambiguation pages. The reason why I didn't use it right away was because the server was giving me gateway time-outs (again). --dgelessus (talk · contribs) 06:38, 1 October 2013 (BST)

We do have a template for entries in dab pages, I explicitly asked the staff to not use it, as I was planning to make some refinements on it. So there's your answer. And also, no formatting or organization changes before seeking approval from the staff. -- Jinbobo 14:39, 1 October 2013 (BST)
Okay, I made that sound differently than I intended to. I was not going to use it for disambigs, but for the Assembly Table recipe table. It currently has something similar done manually. Also, what template do you mean for use with disambig pages? Not going to use it, just to take a look. --dgelessus (talk · contribs) 15:28, 1 October 2013 (BST)
alright -- Jinbobo 15:45, 1 October 2013 (BST)

Deleting User Pages

Is it really necessary to delete user pages? Thankfully mine consisted only of a single line, added there with the intention of moving it to the relevant bee page only when the information was complete. But it was a user page for goodness sake, not a random page created on the wiki proper. Why the aggressive deletion? --Ommina (talk) 00:47, 6 October 2013 (BST)

  • what I deleted it? You might want to check again. -- Jinbobo 12:09, 6 October 2013 (BST)
