Parser Function calls on "Traits" page

I started updated the Traits page to add missing Traits and missing crew from the existing traits. The page puts up this message: "Warning: This page contains too many expensive parser function calls." Does it mean I shouldn't be adding more Traits to the this page? -- Flinx (talk) 16:00, 18 April 2017 (CDT)

What did you try to add? That page is at ~125/1000 expensive parser calls (every call to pagesincategory is 1 call) Titantalk 16:56, 29 August 2017 (CDT)

New rewards for daily stuff

So, when I saw the new rewards for doing 1 and 5 Cadet Challenges and 1 and 5 Arena I added them into the Daily Missions page. Now they have taken them out of the game system again, so I removed them. Will update the 15k reward to 25k reward they mention, tomorrow, when I see it with my own two eyes.... and it stays around.

Human Q's Eng Stat was way off - like 65 points!

Human Q was down as 816 Eng at Lvl 100 'Fully Equipped' - However in convo with someone I checked mine and he was only 751, a difference of 65!

  • His ENG is 816. This person you have a convo must not have his clothing equiped, because that gives +65ENG. I fixed Human q back to the correct value. Izausome (talk)

I know we tend to get the FF/FE stats off DB, but surely they cant have changed the equip he needs so much that it dropped 65 points! Anyway, do we know somebody in DB who can clarify that the other stats below Lvl 100 are right?

The other 2 traits are right by the way, but 816 and 751 does not seem like a typo. Gen Lee Specific (talk) 17:45, 24 April 2017 (CDT)

Just checking out another of my FF/FE - Klingon Dukat - and I have 474, compared to the 534 showing on the wiki entry - 60 point difference!
Did we miss something here> Keevan and Rifle Janeway are right, as I have them frozen, but BOTH are now better than my (and I am sure others) non frozen Dukat!? Gen Lee Specific (talk) 18:41, 24 April 2017 (CDT)

Hi, I was trying to fix some stats on a character from home, and got the message below: --- You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason: Your IP address has been automatically blocked because it was used by another user, who was blocked by Titan.

SiteNotice

Hope you don't mind, I aligned the name, event type, and dates for {{Sitenotice/Event}}. I personally think it looks slightly better for the events. What do you think?--Siguard (talk) 12:31, 10 May 2017 (CDT)

ItemPic Template

I like it, but with a few exceptions. The main one being flipped images. I don't see a way to display a flipped image with this unless we upload a flipped version of those images (which a lot of them exist) or (and this would be the cool part) if there was a way to overlay two images, having a base image like:
NovelBasic.png (but without the boarder), flipping the image:
NovelBasic.png
NovelBasic.png
then overlaying whichever specific rarity border/stars on top of that to get
NovelUncommon.png
NovelUncommon.png
Uncommon Moby-Dick Novel ★★
This issue is being fixed. It's caused by the old images having a wider border that newer item images. I'm trying to get the best picture possible for each item (via replicating), but I can only do so much in a day. I hope to have this fixed sooner rather than later.--Siguard (talk) 12:27, 15 August 2017 (CDT)

Crew for Gauntlet

Thank you Titan for letting me know. I have put each skill onto it's own page to reduce the size. I do not know if I can shrink the Crew for Gauntlet page down anymore unless I start to remove crew from the list

Spam Accounts

Hi Titan, it seems we have a new spam account problem, which the bot doesn't seem to be catching. See for example today's recent changes at 11:46, and again at 12:26 UTC. Any ideas what can be done against this, except manually catching it in time and blocking the user+address? :-/ --Crunch (talk) 08:29, 13 July 2017 (CDT)

Duras Sisters image

Hey Titan, I have the image of Lursa 1/3 and B'Etor 3/3 ready to fuse... but have no idea where the image goes so I can make the Duras Sisters page look like Tuvix's page - with the explainer about how you get the 4*. Anybody able to point me in the right direction? Thanks Gen Lee Specific (talk) 03:38, 19 July 2017 (CDT)

Done, thanks! Glad I could help with this new 'adventure' of DB's! :P (Who is taking bets on Nog and Jake being the next pairing.... or maybe Bashir and O'Brien :P ) Gen Lee Specific (talk) 15:18, 19 July 2017 (CDT)

Recent changes in something?

Hi. Were there any recent changes of coding or whatever? My personal Cryostasis Vault pages broke: Please see the last column of the table, for example here. I tried everything and cant figure out, why is there that "colspan=4" text. It is supposed to work similarly as the left column. And it did work actually sincelast year summer, when I created that user page - until now. What am I supposed to do? Thanks for help. --Koba44 (talk) 15:30, 28 July 2017 (CDT)

Make sure you have colspan/rowspan declared correctly. Nothing (as far as i know) changed in the wiki. We will be updating to mediawiki 1.29 soon, but havent yet. No extensions, etc, have been changed in past month. Titantalk 17:22, 28 July 2017 (CDT)
I am sure rowspan is declared correctly. I didnt change those older pages several months and they were always displayed correctly. ...until now. Since I didnt change a thing and they are displayed differently, something must have been changed. I noticed this issue also on other page that I didnt change recently. --Koba44 (talk) 14:40, 29 July 2017 (CDT)
I dont know what to say besides nothing on the server end changed. I can take a look at the template to see though, if you'd like. Titantalk 15:55, 29 July 2017 (CDT)

Wiki Performance

I've been having some real performance issues on pages with a large number of images. For instance, my Crew Quarters page. It sometimes takes as long as 30 seconds to load and it renders Firefox nearly useless while it's loading. I did some looking and it seems like caching is disabled for most of the Wiki meaning all of those images have to be fetched from the server every time I open the page (which is every day, sometimes several times a day). There is no reason why static images like the crew heads and equipment can't be cached. They rarely, if ever, change. You can see the test results for yourself here and here. Fixing this would also significantly reduce server bandwidth usage. --Darxide (talk) 11:13, 31 July 2017 (CDT)

Client-side caching is not disabled. The "test results" you linked specifically say that static images are asked to be cached by your browser for three days. I can personally load that Crew Quarters page just fine the first time (browser still runs smoothly while lazy loading the images), and then even faster subsequent times, with my browser's network panel confirming that all static images are being loaded from cache. If your browser is not loading that page well or isn't properly caching images, I feel it may be due to issues on your end. Is your browser version old? Is your system weak? Have you for some reason disabled your own caching? Ben (talk) 12:07, 31 July 2017 (CDT)
I tried in another browser and everything seems fine. I guess something is up with my browser, though my cache settings are default, but that page still tries to reload them from the server each time the page is opened. I'll poke around and see if one of my addons is causing some sort of conflict. On that note, I did try an addon that forces caching regardless of what each individual website's settings are and everything loaded beautifully, but it caused other conflicts on the Wiki, so I couldn't keep using it. Whatever the issue is, it seems specific to the STT Wiki as I haven't noticed any issues anywhere else. I'll keep looking. --Darxide (talk) 17:34, 4 August 2017 (CDT)
Update: After spending the last half hour disabling addons one by one and restarting Firefox, I tracked the problem down to two addons. Ghostery and AdBlock Plus. This was the final straw for ABP. I switched over to uBlock Origin. Ghostery is another story. Even if I whitelist the Wiki, Ghostery still causes slowdowns. Not as bad as when ABP was still on, but it's still a good ~6-7 second freeze before the page even attempts to load. I don't know what to do about that other than to message the developers of that addon and see if they can provide a fix in the next version. With both Ghostery and ABP disabled/uninstalled, the page loads within a second or two, even with cached cleared. --Darxide (talk) 18:12, 4 August 2017 (CDT)
Im not familiar with ghostery, but I recommend uBlock Origin to anyone asking about ad blockers. It is the best one, and its free. Glad its working better for you. Titantalk 19:21, 4 August 2017 (CDT)

Fleet Page

That'll be cool to have the warning pop up for un-edited fleets. I sort of want a stock fleet image so that those fleets without a pic don't get washed out by having a normal sized row height in the middle of 150px+ rows. Maybe something like:
Fleet Icon.png

Internal Error

  • Been getting this error lately. Whenever it happens, the only thing that seems to happen is the sidebar menu is duplicated and laid on top of itself. No other negative effects that I can see, but I figured I'd let you know. Here is a screenshot of the issue. It happens at random and I can't find any trigger. If I refresh any page a few times it will inevitably show up. Also, while I'm here, Special:Search seems to be broken. If you click on Advanced nothing appears. No options so it's kind of difficult to do specific searches at the moment. -Darxide (talk) 13:17, 31 August 2017 (CDT)

Fleet Page Deleted

The page I created for The Gluten Empire was deleted for invalid fleet page name. What does that mean and how do I correct it so that the page I spent time creating isn't deleted next time?

Good Day Titan, I have responded to your Message on my talk page. --MulezSti (talk) 14:12, 13 September 2017 (CDT)

Good Day Titan, I have found the upload list with all the images I have uploaded via a search by my username and found 56 files. I went trough every one and individually marked {{Delete}} to 18 of them in their file description. I believe the next steps is up to you or other wiki admin folks to finish the deletion process. That brings my image count to 38 total. I do plan to delete another 14 just as soon as I determine how I want to display the accomplishements and I need the pictures to remind me who the accomplishements were for. I hope that I have met your 5 day request, and if I haven't please let me know so that I can take care of it. Thank you again for your patience and understanding --MulezSti (talk) 21:45, 13 September 2017 (CDT)

New Crew Page Away Team Skills Template

New Voyages Data Inclusion

with the new ship that was recently added, i edited the Template:ShipsNav to include U.S.S. Shenzhou and the ship Template:Infobox ship to include 2 more data sections, 'Traits' and 'AntiMatter'
I have also added the data to the Ship Stats Last Confirmed discussion pages as i located them, as it is not fully updating to include the new data, i assume it may require admin approval, but the data is there regardless. the ships is lacking this information as of yet, i would ask your opinion on this, to best locate and not further elongate the page.
i think adding the 'Ship Traits' to the name location or adding a new section for the data might be prudent.
i would much prefer your input on this before i commence with actions that might be counter productive.

Cadets page missing headshots

Hey Titan, someone pointed out that the latest additions to the cadet challenges do not have their headshots show up on the page (Cadets). I noticed that it looks like the cadets page is looking for the images with a lowercase h in the name of "so and so head.png". Is it possible to have the page look for either upper and lowercase H?

Wrong image displaying

Hey Titan. Could you check out File:MaquisSecurityOutfitSuperRare.png for me? For some reason an older version (which is the wrong icon) is displaying instead of a newer one. Looks like Siguard tried fixing it, too. I can't get the current version to switch to one of the newer icons. It's just stuck on the older dated image as "current". Thanks. --Darxide (talk) 12:34, 31 October 2017 (CDT)

Crew Table

Creating a Wiki

I played STT for a long time and really found this Wiki to be very helpful and well formatted. I am now playing Game of Thrones Conquest and there is very little information available about the game in a wiki format. I was wanting to talk to you about how this site was setup and how I might be able to use this page as a template to get started.

It looks like you are using MediaWiki.org's solution, but what about web hosting? Have you found a cost free solution, if not, what is the cost?

Thanks!

Creating a Fleet

Hi Titan,

When you create a fleet for the Starbase bonus, does the fleet have to be in game you are playing and do you have to be a part of the fleet already? For example, I’m part of the fleet “Ohio Baby,” but there is no fleet page for that. Can I create that fleet page or do I have to create my own fleet page? I’m confused. Help me out here please.

Captain Spirk (talk) 07:33, 28 January 2018 (CST) Captain Spirk

Fleets on the wiki should match up with the fleet in game. Only one fleet page is needed per fleet. Example: I am in Second Star to the Right in game. Fleet Second Star To The Right, and here is this: User: Titan/fleet. Once you set up the fleet and subpages for starbase stats, any other person in the fleet will only have to set their personal fleet page (User: <username>/fleet) and they will be good to go. Technically you can create a fleet page for any named fleet, but it is preferred that it matches in game so it is easy for other fleet members to find or anyone who has interest in joining the fleet can find it. Titantalk 02:00, 28 January 2018 (CST)

Trouble with Creating a Fleet page

I think I am having trouble with creating my fleet page. My Fleet is called Ohio Baby, but I can't seem to add the fleet for some reason or another. Have I created it properly, or have I don't it wrong?

Thank you.

--Captain Spirk (talk) 07:33, 28 January 2018 (CST) Captain Spirk

Thanks for the help on my Starbase page, Titan. I guess the problem was that Fleet was added to the fleet name some time ago and I missed that. The only issue I have now is the proficiencies show all 0% on the crew pages, but on the fleet page they are there. The base stats show OK. Capt. Chaos (talk) 15:23, 28 January 2018 (CST)

Trouble activating Starbase Bonuses for my account

I am having trouble activating "Starbase Bonuses " for my crew. I need help at Step 3. I have created all the pages for my fleet page and yet on step 3, it still says "Ohio Baby" on the red link and not "Fleet_Ohio_Baby." How do I link my "Fleet Ohio Baby " to this Step 3?

I don't want to touch this page again for messing it up again.
