  • I was thinking if perhaps its okay if we could change the background of the wiki to reflect the release of Warhammer 2. I got this particular background I am hoping to use.

  • Okay, so I got a problem Eledan and I need your advise. Okay, so I was in this Warhammer Fantasy forum, trying to get some advice on how I could possibly make this wiki much better when I got into a heated argument with this one guy. Apparently the guy called my wiki a "rip-off" of Lexicanum because they both cover warhammer lore. Thinking it was a simple troll, I called out his bluff and the guy sent me a link to one of the pages I "ripped-off".


    I took a look at the page and I was surpised to see that he was kinda right. The Lexicanum Queek Headtaker page was basically word-for-word EXACTLY the way how I wrote it in my own version of Queek Headtaker. The thing about this was the fact that I wrote everything in that page with my own wording, so basically the guy literally copy and pasted the stuff from my wiki and put it in theirs. Now I typically wouldn't be too annoyed by just one page being taken,  but apparently the editor Hyberius has been copying and pasting alot of the pages in this wiki for months now. He copied Skarsnik, Belegar, all the Skaven units, all Arabian units, Amazons, all the Warriors of Chaos page.....I mean, I think he basically copy and pasted almost every single significant page I have.....

    What should I do Eledan?  Technically I can't call plagiarism because I took all the stuff I wrote from the book, but I know almost 100% that the guy has been copying the content in all the pages he added. You could see all the list of stuff he copied here .  All the pages that have more than 800 words added our my pages....I would be dishonest if I say I am alittle bit aggrevated by this. Whats the point of making pages anymore if a competing rival is just going to take it as theirs?

    • Try to insist once more on the way you got the answer the previous time. If in 24h they do not respond ... It is surely time to try other options.

    • Just to let you guys know, I am going out of town for a couple of weeks so I might not be as active as I can be right now. I will occasionally check in but no gaurantees.

  • Hello Lord Eledan,

    I am writing you to let you know that I had to remove the custom background skin override from the wiki's MediaWiki:Wikia.css file. Unfortunately enough this background override directly conflicted with our ad skins. As such, I've moved a non-animated version of the background to Special:ThemeDesigner, which does not conflict with ad skins.

    Due to the very large file size of the background (3MB+) it was not possible to maintain the animated effect of the background. I recommend looking for a higher quality version of the current background (without the GIF compression) and uploading that through the Theme Designer. Overriding the background through community CSS is not possible.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    • No problem, and thank you for your understanding. I hope you can find a nice alternative skin!

    • I will work a few days on a fixed static background that occupies less than 300kb. I'll let you know when I'm ready to confirm that it's correct.

  • I am just about 95% done with the Sigmar page (had to read 4 novels to its entirety) and I simply need help finding one last source material for this paragraph a buddy of mine wrote concerning Morkar and his battle against Sigmar. The problem is that he never told me where he got the source so I came here asking if you if you perhaps know all the source material detailing Morkar the Uniter?

    • I have found some Facebook groups of Italian fans of Warhammer Fantasy. You will need a lot of help to get the project going. If you give me a message in Italian speaking about this wiki, what you intend to do and asking for help, I can send it to them in your name.

    • I suggest we move this conversation to the Italian wiki xd

  • I need help finding sources for Lord Mortkin. Your Warhammer Fantasy wiki has a page in him, but  I don't know the page of the source material. Do you know?

      Loading editor
    • IIRC, his info is in the Volganof campaign, around page 450 in the Spanish rulebook. His participation in the invasion of Ostland should have been included, but it's lengthy and we haven't got around to doing it yet xd

    • do you have a copy of the source material? The Mortkin page we originally had got corrupted and we lost all the lore written about it.

    • I've checked everything. It was not corrupted, that's called a 'broken redirection'. You had Lord Mortkin, then it was renamed to Mortkin and back and forth, until Mortkin was deleted and Lord Mortkin redirected to Lord Mortkin xD

      Now I've restored both, so that Lord Mortkin redirects to Mortkin, and Mortkin has been proofread and filled with missing links. If you, or Dante, decide that the article should be called 'Lord Mortkin', this is what you must do:

      1) Edit http://warhammerfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Lord_Mortkin?redirect=no. It should show you a 'redirection page' and a link to Mortkin.

      2) Go to Source mode. You should see this code: #REDIRECT [[Mortkin]]

      3) Open another tab, and edit Mortkin as usual. Go to Source mode, cut the whole code text, and erase the Categories. Then write #REDIRECT [[Lord Mortkin]] and save.

      4) Go back to the Lord Mortkin tab. Erase the code. Paste Mortkin's code. Add all the necessary Categories, and save.

      Repeat the process with any articles that must be renamed back to their original name. If you find any more 'broken redirections' (keep an eye on the Special:BrokenRedirects list), you have two options:

      a) If they lead to dead links, that means the latest article was deleted, and so should the older name.

      b) If they lead to normal links, follow the 'trail' on new tabs until you find the one with proper text. Then erase all the former names, or edit their redirect pages so that all of them take you to the newest one. And then be careful not to forget to do the same if you ever decide to re-rename the last page xD (the Special:Whatlinkshere tool is very useful for this).

      If you don't understand any of these steps, please ask. By the way, here's the link to the 8th Ed. Rulebook: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8AA2UjfRRNJVVZ5cFJWOU5YaVE

  • Hey Eledan, I just came to ask if you happen to know anyone with some experience with coding templates or CSS codes. I am currently creating some templates for this wiki (i.e City/Battles/Monarchs) and I got just one problem with them that I need help with. If you happen to know someone, it would be great if I could get their aid!
