Welcome to my Wall!
Before leaving me a message:
  • PLEASE look through the FAQs on my profile page. You'll be doing me a HUGE favor by saving me the time in answering the same questions over and over again.
  • A bit silly to list this, but sadly, I must: Do not ask me about things that I couldn't possibly know. Again, from my FAQ: I do not work for DreamWorks, nor am I an expert in all topics related to movies, or television, or animation, etc. So please refrain from asking me things like when something will be released, or why something is taking so long to release. I'll typically answer these with, "I don't know, sorry," because I really don't know what else to say.
  • Please do your research before asking me. I get a lot of questions that require me to do something that you could easily do yourself - e.g. asking me for the translation and meaning of a piece of foreign text, or asking me for updates on a particular piece of media, etc. Please be polite and do the research yourself first before asking me about it.
  • Please do not ask me to look at/visit/read/view/etc. something of yours. I'm quite a busy person and unfortunately do not have the time to look at everyone's stuff.

  • Hi again! I'm just dropping by to let you know that Fandom will be upgrading to a modern version of MediaWiki which could bring new extensions! More details can be found here! :)

    • Yeah I read about that - looking forward to it. Thanks for the heads-up, though.

    • I did try 1920 at first, but the dimension ratio of all the caps but one (this one) wouldn't scale to exactly 1920 x 1080 without cropping. So I decided to stick with the same sizing as this image from season one. As a result, all the images are now between 500KB and 1MB, which is about where it should be.

      The images do not need to be super large, especially if it's taking up a massive amount of byte space. Most of them were over 3000 pixels - no screencap should ever be THAT big.

    • Well i generally go with the largest version for uploading.

    • Then how do you account for other wikis and wikipedia?

    • Not every wiki community does things the same way, nor do they necessarily need to. It's fine if other wikis and even Wikipedia use that phrasing for every situation, but like Zara said, I felt it was unnecessary and had inaccurate implications, so I removed it. Closing the thread.

  • Why did you block my best friend Rordartwer?

      Loading editor...
    • For spamming and throwing out a death threat. No idea why he and others have been creating weird non-wiki-related messages here, but this wiki isn't an open chatroom. I'll keep removing them if I see them, and eventually block its posters if it continues.

  • Sorry about that. I hate to admit that Rordartwer was being violent and very loud. You escorted Rordartwer out of the Kung Fu Panda Wiki, and he was blocked from Kung Fu Panda Wiki, and he will never come back from this wiki for good.

  • This user has recently used sockpuppet accounts to vandalize several wikis. One such wiki being the Ninjago wiki. A few hours ago he used the account User:Chopper_Maroon to blank several articles on the wiki.

    Be wary of him.

    His accounts are often tied back to a clone of the Ninjago wiki, (currently: https://actionpedia.fandom.com/wiki/Special:WikiActivity ). Here he will often plagiarize aspects of certain wikis and promote many of his accounts to staff roles.

    If you need more information let me know.

    • Okay, thanks for the info. I'll keep this in mind if I need to take action in the future.

  • What font is the numbers on your user profile box? Like it says 37973 edits, and the 37973 is in an Asian font it looks like. What font is that? I'm just wondering....And I don't know how you would put a different font on the user profile box.

    • Not sure what you mean. It's an image file, and the CSS is replacing the cursor with the image.

      Oh, ok....And how do you make a font of an article a different font?

  • Hi Spottedstar! My name's Chris, and I’m the Fandom Wiki Manager for the Kung Fu Panda Wiki!

    I'm here to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. If you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, etc., please contact me on my message wall.

    You're doing a great job! The wiki design looks awesome, you've clearly worked very hard on it. Let me know if I can help with anything. :)

    • Hi Chris, nice to meet you. :)

      So are you kind of like an on-call user in lieu of Special:Contact? That's what I'm getting from the description you gave. To be honest, I've only ever contacted staff just to help with technical stuff only staff could do (e.g. change a wiki's category, check a sockpuppeting user's IP, etc.), but I suppose it's good to know that I can also drop you a line.

      Everything else I'm pretty comfortable with. I've been using wikis for more than a decade and have been running this one in particular for nearly as long. Not sure if that's the kind of help you were referring to or not; if so, then I'm good, lol.

      I do appreciate you introducing yourself to me, though. I'll definitely give you a call if something comes up.

    • Hello, nice to meet you too!

      My role is to basically be your first point of contact so we can get issues resolved quickly and efficiently, without you necessarily having to queue up in Special:Contact. Some issues will still require you to go to Special:Contact at the moment (like the ones you outlined), but I am able to assist with editing concerns you may have or if social disputes arise on the wiki. If we can sort out social disputes before they escalate, that should make your life a lot easier.

      Another benefit is that I can directly liaise with Fandom staff myself, meaning issues and questions can be resolved quickly.

      You seem very comfortable editing wikis for sure! The wiki is looking very neat and tidy and the design is amazing. You should be very proud!

      If you have any problems or questions, please feel free to drop me a line and I'll do my best to help. Happy editing! :)

  • Hi,

    Hope you're doing good and are in good health. I noticed that on most protected pages on your Wiki, there is a padlock icon on top of the View Source button. May I please know how you did that?

    Thanks.
