Hey! Jadium here and I am checking to see how things are doing for you and the community. Has anything in particular come up that needs attention or any type of request that you would like looked into? A note that you may inquire anything related to staff assistance.
I hope things are doing okay and I am happy to help or just listen to feedback!
The rename image feature is very inconsistent in how it works. You have the options to rename the image without updating its name on any pages it is currently on, rename the image and update its name on any pages it is currently on or put it into a queue of images to be renamed and have their names updated on subsequent pages.
This would be fine if any of these options actually worked consistently. If you want to rename an image and update its name on the pages it is currently on most of the time it takes a very long time to finish doing that or just doesn't do it at all. Using the queue is even worse since you can maybe use it to upload a handful of images once but then if you try again all the images fail because of being "rate limited" or having an "invalid/bad token".
There is also sometimes where the upload goes through with the rename and update option but it doesn't update the filename on one or more of the pages that the image was on for no reason at all.
And as for the straight rename option, that one is the most consistent I've found but then you have to go an manually change all the names to the new filename on whatever pages that image appeared on which is pointless extra work. And still that sometimes just doesn't even work when you press the button to rename.
Hey! Thanks for reaching out! So that is a volunteer provided script over on the Dev Wiki. It is the FileUsageAuto-update script. As such, it is not an official Fandom feature so those scripts can run into errors from time to time if they aren't actively supported.
Luckily, another wiki manager has contributed to the code of the script. I can reach out to them and see what problems may be occurring. I may have to check back for more specifications and possibly console errors. I'll let you know what I find out.
Thank you for the reply. I didn't know it was a volunteer provided script, so sorry for that. I'm very new to all this.
You can ask me or Vibhav, since he also has been having problems with it, about any other specifics you need clarified. I don't mind helping in the slightest if it means getting it working consistently, thank you again!
Not a problem! So I did check around and the invalid token is not uncommon to experience on any script being used. It is basically a hiccup in the processing, but I believe it only occurs when the tab is idle for a long period of time, or else the queue is too large.
The actual code of the script is good and should be working. May I ask how many images you are attempting to use with the script, and roughly how many page updates are tied to it? Likely, it is the quantity of requests that is causing it to hiccup more often, but I'll keep looking into this.
Well when using the queue to update multiple images the most I've ever gotten to work in one use is 5. And that would be around 10-15 page updates for that one use of the queue. Since my last comment I've been using it more and 2-3 images in the queue with 10 or less page updates seems to work semi-consistently.
With the "Rename and Update" button I would obviously be doing one at a time but trying to do multiple in quick succession and it would either take a very long time for it to go through or it just wouldn't go through at all. And sometimes when it did go through it would arbitrarly not update the image on one or more of the pages it was on.
Right so clearing my cache didn't seem to change anything. The queue and "Rename and Update" button still work the same as before. And after trying on a different browser it doesn't seem any different over there either.
That seemed to help a little? I've found a sort of work-around since my last message anyway that works pretty well, so even if I can't use the queue properly I don't particularly mind. Thanks for the help!
You are able to change the delay to any second(s) you'd prefer as well. Changing it to 1000 delay, would be a one second delay and so forth.
What was the workaround you found by the way? That is good to hear you figured something out. I'm sorry I wasn't able to do much, when it comes to a volunteer provided script, it is hard to track down support for it.
It isn't really much of a work-around, I just couldn't think of a better word. But just renaming the file and replacing it on subsequent pages actually goes faster than renaming and updating or using the queue. So I just do that instead. It becomes a hassle if the image is on a lot of pages but if it's on 3 or less it's not really a big deal.
That's alright. I wasn't expecting there to be much help on the subject anyway, I did think from the beginning that it would be something that just can't beremedied. Thank you for your help nonetheless.
I understand. I do still want to dig around on this and actually find a proper solution. I believe the script is intended for moderate queues, and if the queue is something like... over 100 article pages per image that needs updated, then it is possible it can't handle it. I appreciate your willingness to compromise and use an alternative for the time being. Until then, I am going to continue looking into this.
The wikis comments have been disabled, yes. It was decided through a majority "vote" between the staff and some active contributors in the wiki channel in the discord server. The comments served virtually no purpose and were only ever used for negative things or generally meaningless things. And talk pages still exist.
This is most disappointing. I do hope you and all the other administrators and staff set up a meeting to vote in restoring the comments. Because sure people have post negative comments, but you should give them one warning and one warning only to the user who post the negative comment. If they still press on, you should block them for a year or for life.
I don't really have any say in it. But I don't think they will be re-enabled anytime soon. As far as I can remember pretty much all the admins, or at least all the active admins, agreed on disabling them.
Is there an issue with them? They aren't forced edits, but there was a foundation in place with adding the Fair use template on images. Since Special:Uncategorizedimages is full in the thousands, I was assisting in clearing that out.
If the edits are not wanted, I can cease. Nothing I do is a requirement. My goal at the moment is to help clear the maintenance pages down.
Upon doing research of how images were categorized here, I came across that former administrator Bereisgreat added the fair use templates to images. I picked up that process since it was done by an administrator so Special:Uncategorizedimages could be cleaned up. :P
I am the new CM for Anime at Fandom. I would love to connect with you for future opportunities regarding resources at Fandom. There are a ton more ways to utilize Fandom than just a wiki manager. Let's talk!
I sent you an add on Discord and a DM. If you would rather chat via email. You can hit me up at email@example.com.
To note: I would also like to talk about the Discord connected to this wiki. It is a relatively short chat with an easy solution.
Hey! My name is Jadium, and I would like to introduce myself as the Wiki Manager for this community. I will be available for any type of question relating to the wiki, editing, social issues and overall maintenance concerns. I will also be your fast contact for issues full time Fandom staff need to address. Any type of inquiry, I will be here to listen and do my absolute best to find the correct solution. If there is anything you need more clarification on with my role, please let me know!
And about the trouble with his power, did you actually saw how bad he is? I¡m saying this cause you also reverted what i added about him having trouble controling his power. Just as i detailed before, aside from his armor he tired out pretty quickly after unleashing his max power, which isn't something seen with many other characters.
Certainly i was wrong with some of the edits that were reverted, but this one doesn't make sense.
I am one of the admins from the Dr. Stone Wiki who is seeking to affiliate it with the One Punch-Man Wiki. As you are an admin around here, I am asking your permission if it's possible for our two wikis to be affiliated together? Here is our wordmark ahead of time:
