Special edition S1 DVD Edit

Hey Blue Rook, hope you're well! I was wondering whether you had the Special Edition S1 DVD with the deleted scenes on it - I saw you've uploaded some pics from deleted scenes in the past. Unfortunately I don't think it's available in the UK and I was looking for a favour about one of the deleted scenes (User blog:Acer4666/Andre Drazen's phone) and wondered if you could possibly help? Thank you :)--Acer4666 (talk) 15:02, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

Andre's phone

Turns out it's an "Audiovox"! Not sure what the "M" is about though. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 06:19, June 12, 2015 (UTC)
Ah that's brilliant, thank you! I did suspect it was Audiovox but thats great to have it confirmed. Still can't find that particular model but will keep trying now I have had it narrowed down :)--Acer4666 (talk) 08:25, June 12, 2015 (UTC)
Yes I actually spent some time trying to find the model information, with no luck. That's a tough hobby you have there. Technology has been moving so fast over the years. If you had to guess, what degree of likelihood is it that this is simply a custom prop and not an actual phone? Blue Rook  talk  contribs 19:23, June 12, 2015 (UTC)
Well, after a good few solid hours searching, I finally tracked down the model number. Audiovox CMP3! You're not wrong about it being a tough hobby :P Although I'm not sure they'd create custom props, what is possible is they get given prototype bits of technology that then never get released and so there's no info on them haha. Anyways thank you so much for your help in identifying this!--Acer4666 (talk) 18:14, June 14, 2015 (UTC)

Adam Morgan Edit

We could use your opinion on what to do about the actor who portrayed Adam Morgan in the picture at this forum since two actors share that name. BattleshipMan (talk) 20:19, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 02:42, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

Actor category order Edit

Hey Blue Rook! About my huge scale edit changing all the actor category orders :P I proposed it on the forum here, to be more consistent with the order "Characters", "Day X characters", "more specific info about them" that we have on character pages--Acer4666 (talk) 18:41, June 22, 2015 (UTC)

Weird crap Edit

Haha are you describing text from Wiki 24 as "weird crap"? How dare you! :P --Acer4666 (talk) 11:02, July 31, 2015 (UTC)

Hah! Couldn't make out what that was... Blue Rook  talk  contribs 05:11, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

Portable InfoboxesEdit

We’re reaching out to a few of our top communities, hoping to get you on board with the migration to the new infobox markup. And we have tools to help!

‘’’Why we’re doing this’’'

Simply put: Most current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and indeed any device that doesn’t use desktop-style displays. On desktops and laptops, they often look amazing. The problem is that Wikia’s traffic is trending mobile.

There is an important graph from our forum post about infoboxes a couple weeks back, and I want to share it here as well:

Wikia mobile traffic growth

Mobile is the future. Not just for Wikia, but for the web as a whole. Take a look at the recent trends and future growth predictions for mobile traffic - it's staggering.

We partnered with the Wikia community to create this new markup to make sure that your hard work can be displayed on mobile devices (as well as any future technologies) easily and without any new coding conventions. It’ll take some effort up front, to be sure, but we’re here to help, and the work you put in now will pay for itself tenfold in the future.

‘’’Tools we’ve designed to ease the process’’’

We’ve enabled two new features on your community. One is a tool for migrating the “old” infobox code to the new markup. It identifies templates on your wikia that look like infobox templates and places a box on the right rail of the template page. When you click the “Generate draft markup” button in this box, it opens a new tab containing a draft of your infobox using the new markup.

The second is a new feature on Special:Insights that will highlight which infoboxes on your wikia have not been migrated to the new infobox markup. It’s fairly intuitive - you can click on the infobox title link itself to see the old markup, or simply click the “Convert!” button on the right, which performs the same action as the “Generate draft markup” button.

This is our help page for the new markup. I’ll help get things rolling by converting a template or two as an example if you’d like me to, as well as watching this post for any questions. Pinkachu@Wikia (talk) 21:22, August 25, 2015 (UTC)
