Hello! I was directed to leave a message for you regarding the recent vandalism, although I imagine it's unnecessary.

If your not busy

I did something crazy helping out on a neglected wiki and I am still rusty with templates (the site has pretty much no templates). So I got ambitious and attempting a infobox transformer I must be missing something if it is something small or big, something I can do or have to get an admin (currently none on on the other wiki). So I figured I asked the one who I know knows templates. Now I know this is a favor and if it is a can of worms you not up to opening or what not, no problem. Thanks in advance.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 05:00, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

No problem, link the wiki here and make sure I have write privileges. I can give you a hand tomorrow. -- tierrie talk contr 06:29, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
I hope privilege wise it is fine cause there are no active admins (nothing really is protected that we need I hope). My Template [1], the transformer [2], the info box [3], the test article [4], my temp template (that works) [5] and just in case the infobox [6]. If there are any troubles I have requested for adoption (I know I am mad) so if I get excepted in the next few days or week we can see what we can do then. I did base on the transformers I worked on here if that means anything good or bad. Thanks again, message me if you need anything else.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 06:48, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
It looks like the w:c:cafeworld:Template:Recipe Row uses anonymous variables which are referenced as {{{1}}}, {{{2}}} and so forth, while w:c:cafeworld:Template:Infobox Recipe Transformer uses named variables which are passed as {{{cost}}}, {{{serving}}} and so forth. For compatibility's sake, it would probably make more sense to change everything to either anonymous variables or named variables. Otherwise you don't really know what's being passed.
An example in this case is where the fourth parameter {{{cuisine|}}} is not defined in w:c:cafeworld:Blue Cotton Candy. It is why it turns up as {{{4}}}? -- tierrie talk contr 08:47, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
I want the name variables ideally cause it should take the variables from the info boxes instead of manually entering each field, the other is just temp cause it works atm (and was more for reference) and if I can't get the transformers w/ variables work ( then use the number variables till I can get it to work). The transformer with the template aren't working when I use then and that is really why I need your help {{:Blue Cotton Candy|style=RecipeRow}} just takes the infobox as is and doesn't form the table. Maybe I forgot something maybe its bigger, I just really need to know how to make it work or what my error was. Hope that makes sense and the other temp template did not distract from what I meant to need help with.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 21:12, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
That's because you've chosen to name it |reciperow=RecipeRow. You should be using {{:Blue Cotton Candy|style=reciperow}}. There's a working example in w:c:cafeworld:User:Tierrie/Sandbox 1 if you need to see it in action. -- tierrie talk contr 21:24, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
X / I had a feeling it was something simple/small, prolly shouldn't have been staring at it so long and late last night. Thanks it is good to know it was just me not paying attention. I appreciate that so much thank you.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 21:45, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
No problem :) Glad I could help -- tierrie talk contr 21:50, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
So bugging again. I am having problems adding the article link to the image and for the life of me I can't get it to work. Sorry for bugging you again.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 05:54, September 14, 2011 (UTC)
Can you describe the problem you're having as well as links to the examples? -- tierrie talk contr 06:22, September 14, 2011 (UTC)
Sure, regarding same template [7], in the case of the image I'd like it to be a link as well, to take back to the article. In my test templates here [8] I have an image that links back to the article, when I attempt to adjust the template (reciperow) I only get the default image pop up. I thought [[File:{{{image2|}}}|link={{{name}}}]] would do it but it hasn't.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 08:26, September 14, 2011 (UTC)
I changed it for you. Here's how it works
{{#if:{{{image2|}}}               // if there's an image2
|[[File:{{{image2|}}}|left|link=  // show the image and create a link to...
  {{#sub:{{{name|}}}|2|-2}}       // the name of the article, and strip out 
 ]]                               // .. the the braces, because links
Hope that helps -- tierrie talk contr 09:18, September 14, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you so much. now I'll try not to bug you for a while :P  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 18:58, September 14, 2011 (UTC)


hello Tirrie thanks fore blocking me i have complained to head office about you and also about you getting rid of facts (exploits) (Cjbeattie (talk) 18:22, September 13, 2011 (UTC))

Make sure you get the right people to plead your case. Most users are also welcomed to get another admin's point of view, but seeing as you've already asked User:Loleil and she did not agree with you, I'd caution you from going down that path. In short, your continued contributions on the subject of Exploits or any pages related to it are no longer welcomed. Your contribution privileges will be revoked permanently if you continue this behavior. It is not important to me that your cousin is studying to be a game developer, and family relationship with a game developer does not make you an expert on the subject of exploits. -- tierrie talk contr 18:37, September 13, 2011 (UTC)


Hello Tierrie, I have a small problem with the chat function in this wiki. It keeps popping up when I'm not even at my PC, resulting in messages like 'are you dead or alive?' from other chat users. This has happened 4 or 5 times and I was wondering if I'm the only one with this problem.--Schrödingercat (talk) 08:22, September 16, 2011 (UTC)


Hey Tierrie, I saw the new affiliated wikis template on the main page (it looks great by the way :D), and was wondering if there were plans for proposing affiliations with any other wikis? Chantry symbol King Cousland | Talk  

I think the main page would look better with less distracting elements on it and I do feel that the affiliates icon can be distracting. With that in mind, I would like to keep the number of affiliates shown to a minimum. Otherwise it'd start looking like a banner ad. The only ones I feel should show up on the main should really be BioWare related or to a lesser extent, single player RPGs in a fantasy setting. You're welcome to suggest any wiki and we can take a look at it. -- tierrie talk contr 23:38, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
I agree that affiliated wikis should be Bioware related or fantasy RPG focused, so if we were going to affiliate with any more wikis, the only ones which spring to mind are the Witcher wiki and the Elder Scrolls wiki. The Elder Scrolls wiki appears to be a work in progress in some areas, so The Witcher wiki is really the only one that I think would be appropriate. Chantry symbol King Cousland | Talk  

Need help on a Slider

Hi, I need your help on a slider (again) :) I have designed a slider for trailer in Deus Ex Wiki; click here to see. The problem is I don't know how to get rid of the "empty space" in between the video and arrows in "right hand-bottom corner". Appreciate any help you can give on this. -- Snfonseka (Talk) 08:26, September 17, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks and if you have a free time please take a look into extending the design, as you have mentioned. :) -- Snfonseka (Talk) 04:58, September 19, 2011 (UTC)

Affiliation template

Hey, I think we should keep the "Affiliation template" in the middle column, because there is extra space after "Twitter template". So the user doesn't has to go to the bottom of the page to see it. -- Snfonseka (Talk) 08:35, September 17, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good to me! Incidently, re the Deus Ex page, I will take a look at it as soon as I get some time once I settle in from my 2 day hike ;) This will probably be tomorrow or early next week. Cheers! -- tierrie talk contr 04:02, September 19, 2011 (UTC)

Conflict infobox

Hi, I added some guidelines for using the Template:ConflictInfoBox/doc because I'm seeing it used kind of incorrectly (or perhaps a bit too creatively). I hope it's okay but can you check it over? Sporran (talk) 17:41, September 17, 2011 (UTC)

Forum Intros

Do you want me to rewrite them now in a sandbox or when the forums are moved/renamed? Chantry symbol King Cousland | Talk  

You can do them later. Not a big deal. -- tierrie talk contr 20:38, September 19, 2011 (UTC)

Dragon Age Answers?

Hi, What's with the change of our logo in top-left corner? I just noticed that. Did I miss anything important discussion regarding this? The user who changed the logo is User:Angela; she is one of the Wiki staff.-- Snfonseka (Talk) 14:04, September 20, 2011 (UTC)

I didn't notice a change in the logo. Are you on Monobook? What are you seeing? -- tierrie talk contr 16:06, September 20, 2011 (UTC)
That is weird. Here is the screenshot and the link to the file history of the logo. I didn't revert the image because I thought you are aware of this change. -- Snfonseka (Talk) 03:19, September 21, 2011 (UTC)
I have no idea how that came about. I see that you left her a message already. We'll see what she says in a few days and revert it if we don't hear from her. -- tierrie talk contr 03:58, September 21, 2011 (UTC)

She said it was a mistake. So I changed the things back to normal. -- Snfonseka (Talk) 13:29, September 21, 2011 (UTC)


Tierrie could you take a look at the new icons for the forum banners? I've been tinkering for a while but couldn't change the icons for the life of me. Thanks! Chantry symbol King Cousland | Talk   10:55, September 25, 2011 (UTC)


Amazing ^^ I'm flattered that you liked it so much you decided to give it a try =P And very awesome idea of the little story thingy as the connection between the entries =D
Thanks for the heads up, partner -- I announced it on the latest news post[9] ^^ Good luck, and take care, Tierrie! -- D. Cello 21:58, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Circle of Magi in Orzammar

I made up a new page. It is about an Orzammar Circle of Magi. If I leave it up, will I get banned from writing new pages or editing anything ever again? I think it would actually be cool to have a Circle of Magi in Orzammar. Just saying. Please don't delete it and please don't ban me from using the site ever again or from editing anything. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bepease22 (talkcontribs) 17:02, 26 September 2011

Uh, Tierrie.... I don't know what happened but when I put his page up as a candidate for deletion it seems to have made a new page. My best guess is that when you moved his to the forums I was editing, and it somehow happened from there. Balitant (talk) 01:22, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

Hey trying to submit my short story for contest for TOMM but i can't seem to submit it right or something any help you could lend? sorry man.... --Promises4U (talk) 03:35, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

yes thx for asking sorry about that.

forgot to sign it.--Promises4U (talk) 11:59, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

Portal codes

'Ello Tierrie,
I just wanted to ask your permission on using the portal code - the one that's also on the Assassin's Creed wiki - for the I Am Alive wiki. I've seen you around a couple of times, so I thought I'd stop by and ask if I could use it rather than only taking it and creditting you. Please leave a message here or here. Have a nice day. Uditore 16:11, September 29, 2011 (UTC)

Need your eyeballs again

Hi Tierrie. I'm setting up your Sexy Slider™ at Ninja Gaiden Wiki. I got everything setup correctly (or so I think) and for some reason, the images aren't displaying on the actual slider, even though they appear fine on Portal/Main. When mousing over the "150px" (on the first slide) and "200px" (on the other slides), the browser is looking for Template Placeholder.png for some reason. (Placeholder.png is the image name) Here are the relevant links:

Anyway, if you get a chance to take a look, either message me on Wikia somewhere or Skype me tomorrow. Thanks in advance. JoePlay WikiaStaff.png (talk) 00:42, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

Home again home again!

I just came back from being away from home for a month. So I was thinking about maybe on continuing some origin's clean up/updating but I scarcely know where to start. If you or the other mods have ideas or been talking about it, I'd be more than happy to start up a sort of long term clean up/updating project but I'd need some guidelines or wish list of some sort. I do have the new dragon age but I am playing origins/awakening on and off atm. (crossposted with Loleil). Lemme know  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 08:11, October 4, 2011 (UTC)

Could you help me?

Hi Tierrie,
My name is Ian, and I've started creating my own wiki. I love the page slider you have created for this wiki's main page, and I've tried recreating it for my wiki, and it's just not working at all.... Could you help me get it to work, please?

About the Orlesian Mystery Murder

I'm not sure to who to contact at Wikia (I'm guessing you are more up to date regarding that, since you handled that part of the contest), but one of the winners for the Olresian Mystery Murder random giveaway, Thornsparks79, is having problems claiming his prize: the code is apparently invalid (see my talk page). --D.

Spell/Talent Origins Pages/Tables ref clean up tag

(This was first posted to Loleil about a week ago but she appears to be away.)

I have some possible changes for the a clean up tag on Spells (Origins), samples here. If still not clean enough if some suggestions (especially for clean up tags due to the new wiki look) would be greatly appreciated, so I can see what I can do :)  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 00:32, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

I was considering alternate ways to show the info (ie your idea of 2 rows of 2) but I assumed the set up was to mimic the in game spell book (which is why I ask specifically if it was enough or if going away from the original style was needed). I can make alternate views that go away from this in game likeness if you like and see if it is favorable even if it doesn't look like the in game style?  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 01:11, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
User_blog:Hollowness/Spell_Iconmini_Table_Samples#Quick_Samples. 2 more ideas, lemme know what you think.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 07:16, November 17, 2011 (UTC)
I have been attempting dialogue in the talk page for the spells, with no luck, I could try on the forums.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 02:52, November 22, 2011 (UTC)


Hi Tierrie, A few months ago I saw the portal/slider on the Assassin’s Creed Wiki. It’s quite impressive. I finally decided to try something similar for the wiki I’m on. From looking at the different templates, it looks like you’re the creator of the majority of the work (or at least the coding). I would really appreciate some information on how you get pages/templates to open in the same space on the main page. If you are willing to give me a few tips, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks :) NickyLinneaTalk 04:59, November 16, 2011 (UTC)

do you think this template could be utilized?

Well, I couldn't sleep cause I had a template idea, lemme know what you think, I think friendship/rivalry need some consistency either way but this could help too maybe? User:Hollowness/Template  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 12:53, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

iconmini question

I was wondering it it was possible to have an alternate image if the default is not wanted (ie. codex entries that are used for but DA1 and DA2 have DA1 codex image File:Ico codex entry.png and I want to use the DA2 codex image File:Codex icon DA2.png). Also if we could have a textless option? I am not the most familiar with iconmini when you improved it and linked it with the inventory icons. Lemme know, thanks  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 03:39, November 25, 2011 (UTC)
