Hey after the tone in the last message I don't think this [[Talk:Elf#Neutrality, biased viewpoints|conversation]] can get anywhere. However a 3rd voice can break the impasse so that one side or the other prevails. Can you help us out? {{User:Viktoria_Landers/Sig}} 07:25, October 18, 2018 (UTC)

Leliana said that the rumors were true though about Jean-Gaspard's parentage.

Again, context is key. Leliana says the rumours were true but this is on the basis of the "proof" which she is strongly implied to have been manufactured by her.
 
 
 
"I understand that I have you to thank for the sudden arrival of proof of Jean-Gaspard’s heritage. The Grey Warden’s love poems were most convincing, although his decision to rhyme "falling" with "Calling" was less so. Regardless, Jean-Gaspard has lost all claim to the duchy. "

== Spoiler templates rewrite (important) ==
 
Hey, I wanted to let you know what I have been doing to make sure our spoiler templates display properly on mobile devices. Many used to appear not at all (in the Mercury skin used when on mobile), but after I [[Special:Log/templateclassification|reclassified them]] they now all do. Unfortunately however, the warnings themselves were rendered in Mercury in a broken fashion (they also had “click here to reveal them” in the warnings, even though JavaScript doesn’t actually work in Mercury & clicking does nothing, leading to confusion). I had a quick fix to simply vanish the broken warning in Mercury, but the method I used isn’t supported & won’t work forever; plus, it would be good if mobile viewers could see the warnings, too.<br/><br/>So I have a solution that can do just that, but it requires installing <span class="plainlinks" title="User:Ursuul/Spoilers.css">[{{fullurl:User:Ursuul/Spoilers.css|action=raw}} some CSS that I wrote]</span> while also, at the same time so as to prevent bugs, replacing the guts of [[Template:Spoiler]] with my rewritten version <span class="plainlinks" title="Template:Spoiler/2">[{{fullurl:Template:Spoiler/2|action=raw}} here]</span>. Only admins are allowed to edit CSS, so I’d like to ask if you would add the CSS I wrote to [[MediaWiki:Common.css|this file]]. The only real difference you’re likely to notice between the old & new versions would be that the <code style="white-space: nowrap;"><nowiki>style=short</nowiki></code> parameter results in spoiler warnings that are worded a bit differently, & that quotes/“click”-related text is now stored in CSS rather than the templates themselves so that they will be stripped away when viewing via Mercury. In Mercury, not only will the problem be permanently fixed, but you’ll see warnings such as these:<p style="text-align: center;"><span title="Full Image" class="plainlinks">[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/infobox/images/7/70/DA-Spoiler-Mercury.png/revision/20181121002908 https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/infobox/images/7/70/DA-Spoiler-Mercury.png]</span></p>The actual spoiler content won’t be collapsed in Mercury, but it’s something at least; right now Mercury viewers have no warnings at all. It’s also possible to make the game/book/etc titles into links that work in mobile & desktop with this method, but on desktop you might accidentally click the link when trying to click the warning, so you might not want to do that. I & my fellow Vanguard members ([[w:c:portability:Portability|Portability specialists]]) came up with this solution for better mobile display on this Wiki, & on a few prospective Wikis which wish to use our types of spoiler templates, so it ought to be very smooth if installed properly. If you have any questions, please let me know :)<br/>{{User:Ursuul/s.css|1:07 AM Wednesday, November 21, 2018 (UTC)}}
 
 
:Hey, just letting you know that Loleil took care of it, so you don’t have to worry about it anymore. Cheers.<br/>{{User:Ursuul/s.css|7:20 AM Sunday, November 25, 2018 (UTC)}}
 
 
== New Year's Resolutions ==
 
 
Hey P, Merry Christmas! Heading into 2019 I would like to ask from an admin the resolution of some long-standing, in some cases years-long candidancies that have not been addressed.
 
 
These are:
 
* [[:Category:Candidates for deletion|Candidates for deletion]]
 
* [[:Category:Candidates for merge|Candidates for merge]]
 
* [[:Category:Candidates for moving|Candidates for moving]]
 
* [[:Category:Candidates for speedy deletion|Candidates for speedy deletion]]
 
* [[:Category:Candidates for split|Candidates for split]]
 
 
Thank you and have a Happy New Year! {{User:Viktoria_Landers/Sig}} 16:09, December 30, 2018 (UTC)
 
 
:Certainly. I will examine them now.

== Admin Nomation: Ursuul ==
 
Hello there! I have started an [https://dragonage.wikia.com/d/p/3311529323659412346 Admin nomination] and as you can imagine we need as many opinions/votes as possible. Thank you. {{User:Viktoria_Landers/Sig}} 10:19, January 8, 2019 (UTC)
 
 
== Vandalism ==
 
I don't know if this is the right place to report it. There is an IP who keeps vandalizing [[The Warden]]. That IP apparently does not care if their changes are undone, so I thought somebody with moderation rights might look into it before an edit war breaks out.--[[User:Buckeldemon|Buckeldemon]] ([[User talk:Buckeldemon|talk]]) 12:10, June 22, 2019 (UTC)

Hey HD3! My name is Bluerock, and I'm the [[Help:Wiki_Managers|Wiki Manager]] for the Dragon Age Wiki. This means I'm your first point of contact and liaison for Fandom Staff.

== Checking in on the Advisor Program ==
 
 
Hi,
 
 
I'm just checking in with those taking part in the advisors project. Hopefully you will have had some time to see how it works, and have some ideas on how it can be improved!
 
 
How has it been working out for you and this wiki? We know that few people who sign up actually ask questions, but have you had any good (or bad) experiences with those who have?
 
 
Can you think of any areas we could improve on to make this a better system?
 
 
And my final question: looking at the project overall, how many stars out out of 5 would you give it (and why)?
 
 
Thanks so much for being a part of this experiment. Giving your knowledge and expertise to the next generation of editors is a great thing. Thanks! -- [[User:Sannse|Sannse]] <staff /> <small>([[w:c:community:Forum:Community_Central_Forum|help forum]] | [[w:c:community:Blog:Wikia_Staff_Blog |blog]])</small> 23:39, January 23, 2020 (UTC)
