New tablesEdit

Could you decrease the amount of empty space that your table code adds to the edges of all boxes? The older table code has none of it. Amphibious vehicles has 2 tables for easy comparison. It seems like the new table wastes a lot of space because of that, but the older table has much thicker lines, so maybe it just looks like it?

Also, you should update the Site maintenance log about this. I updated it the last two times when the standard table code was updated. GMRE (talk) 15:35, May 15, 2015 (UTC)

I will most certainly add this to the log, thanks for reminding me. Now, for the table sizes. Over on User:Kronostradamus/Sandbox I have two tables set up, the basic table is 1231x384 on a 1920x1080 monitor while the new table is 1231x441. That is exactly a 14.84% increase. I agree that this is too much, so I'll mess with the code a little bit and get it somewhere in between the two. A little bit of padding is nice, but 15% is definitely a bit excessive. Kronos Talk 03:48, May 16, 2015 (UTC)
Just added a third example table with the decreased padding. Kronos Talk 02:08, May 17, 2015 (UTC)
I guess that's better. The transition from double to single lines still makes it look the way that it does, but there's not much that could be done about that. The single line versions should logically take less space, but the single lines stand out less, so that wouldn't look good. Unless maybe it could look like that? What do you think? GMRE (talk) 16:00, May 17, 2015 (UTC)
Actually making it look like the one I linked to would make little difference. GMRE (talk) 18:13, May 17, 2015 (UTC)

There's a glitchEdit

I'm not sure if it happens on larger screens yet, but go to the Triereme - RC Athena article and see what difference the <> code makes above the table. With out the code, the table gets pushed left by the infobox. I guess we could fix that by adding the code above larger tables where needed, but just pointing it out. GMRE (talk) 15:47, June 2, 2015 (UTC)

Ah yes, I noticed the glitch on another article and never thought to use <br clear=all/> on it. Thanks for pointing that out. Not many articles have tables which are that close to the infobox so this should be easy to take care of. Kronos Talk 21:20, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

JC3 vehiclesEdit

The official preorder info finally put some names and pictures together, allowing me to create the first 3 proper vehicle articles. Category:Just Cause 3 Vehicles.

It's seemingly possible to create two more articles, but that would be pushing it too far. One is the red classic sports car that was named in a pre-announcement screenshot, but 3 other things in those screenshots have already been renamed. The other is the yellow sports car. Looking closely, it's possible to see it's a "Vistosa", but the SnakeHead T20 also has a "Wilford" badge on the rear. GMRE (talk) 14:12, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

Safehouses, not safe housesEdit

Template:Portal/ContentsJC1 Safehouses is a single word. I can upload a scan of a game manual page that mentions it, if needed. Also, you got the extraction helicopter way wrong. I'll upload a picture from the extraction cut-scene for you tomorrow. Otherwise it's well done. GMRE (talk) 20:38, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

I might change the color to red while I'm at it. I wanted to do green scan lines on the text, which would be quite fitting of JC1. The problem is that at such a small size, the scanlines are unnoticeable. I'll fix the safehouse issue and the helicopter when I have a chance. Thanks for the input! Kronos Talk 06:54, May 22, 2015 (UTC)

I just added new pictures to Extraction and Heavy drop. Use which ever ones you like. GMRE (talk) 13:33, May 22, 2015 (UTC)

You need sleepEdit

BTW you don't have to reply

JC3 count downEdit

Are you sure the timezone is right? It looks like you set it to midnight according to central european time. GMRE (talk) 13:53, June 22, 2015 (UTC)

I have no timezone set so it just goes by whatever a user has set for their system clock. At least it's supposed to. I can, however, set it to a specific timezone if you think that would be better. Kronos Talk 23:30, June 24, 2015 (UTC)
It's off set from my PC time. I don't know what timezone it should be so whatever, I was just curious. GMRE (talk) 14:50, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

Main navigationEdit

I added another link to Template:Portal/Contents, which ended up creating a noticeable gap at the bottom of the middle column. I put a picture there, to see if that could improve the situation, but I suspect that only makes it worse, because a picture can only have a set width, but the table has a different width at different screen resolutions.

I think I'll just remove that right now before this hits the fan. GMRE (talk) 21:13, July 18, 2015 (UTC)

Interesting problem. I suppose it has to stay balanced. The noticeable gap doesn't look too bad, so it's probably not too much to worry about, especially if you think a link definitely deserves to be on the navigation. Kronos Talk 02:09, July 20, 2015 (UTC)
I edited the table again after removing the picture to minimize the gap. If the smaller sections/columns are moved around a bit, the gap could be made as tall as a column is wide. That's when I had a picture in there. GMRE (talk) 14:52, July 20, 2015 (UTC)


Hi, good afternoon, do you know what is the difference between this code br clear="all" and br clear=all? Thanks.  -The Cat-

Admin input possibly neededEdit

See my talk page for the "Fan Studio Opportunity". GMRE (talk) 20:54, August 5, 2015 (UTC)

This has been updated with more info on my talk page, so yeah, your attention would be appreciated. GMRE (talk) 22:36, September 4, 2015 (UTC)

When you get backEdit

There's another response on my talk page and there's something strange going on with the background today.

If I scroll any page, it looks like the background is connected to the top of the page, but another identical background will stay with me as I'm scrolling. That's probably some site update, because there's nothing about it on our recent history. GMRE (talk) 13:19, August 18, 2015 (UTC)

I'm seeing the same thing. Although for me I think I've seen this before (and I had no idea this was called site updating)

Dreadfully sorry about the late response, had a pile of work when I got back from my vacation. Is this still an issue? Kronos Talk 21:27, August 26, 2015 (UTC)
No. It only lasted for that day, I think. Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 21:29, August 26, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, that was only a day. Like earlier today, this site loaded each page in super slow motion for me. As if I'd be on 1990s internet, or something. Oh and you might want to look at the Site maintenance log once you're done with your work. There's no hurry, we still have months before JC3 gets out and shit hits the fan around here. GMRE (talk) 21:37, August 26, 2015 (UTC)

Something for you I guessEdit

Thread:16539. GMRE (talk) 20:43, August 27, 2015 (UTC)

Seems alright, added us to the most appropriate footer. Anything to get rid of that ugly gaming controller logo thing... Kronos Talk 18:31, September 10, 2015 (UTC)

If you're not too busy vacationingEdit

Check out the latest update on my talk page about the "Fan Studio Opportunity" thing. GMRE (talk) 19:09, September 9, 2015 (UTC)

They've linked us to the next draft. GMRE (talk) 22:08, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

come to my page chat pageEdit

come to my chat page so i can talk

Ignore him. He's a troll.

Did you turn off Auto-correct on Recent Wiki Activity?Edit

For some reason its not showing up and therefore I have to refresh to see changes

Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 14:44, September 15, 2015 (UTC)

Something oddEdit

For some reason my Internet connection is occasionally glitching and the small icon next to the link (like a green lock or a blank page) says something like "This page is encrypted with a modern cipher suite" but then sometimes the page loads fine

I've never seen it before

And this applies to every page I visit on this wiki and other wikias but when I pull up a link on another website its fine

Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 22:53, September 23, 2015 (UTC)

I spy with my little eye...Edit

...something that's not quite right in the new mainpage. It looks right at first glance, but 1 link leads to a different place. Can you spot it? GMRE (talk) 19:46, September 30, 2015 (UTC)

Just checked the entire page. Every blue link. Everything works.
@GMRE I think you meant "not".
Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 21:22, September 30, 2015 (UTC)
This is why I said "at first glance". It's not just about links working. There's a link that should actually lead someplace completely different. If you remember the previous man page you'll know the difference. GMRE (talk) 21:51, September 30, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah I know. I clicked every single link on that page, including page history, FB, Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr, Talk:Main Page, About This Wiki, Administrators, Recent Changes, Active Users, Categories, Manual of Style, Community Portal, ...
I don't know. If you say there is such a page, then I guess I didn't check a link (which if so, is well hidden) (highly unlikely)
Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 00:33, October 1, 2015 (UTC)
Hint 2: The problem is not a link that would say it goes to one place and would actually go someplace else. It's that it looks fine and works, but it should be something very similar looking, but completely different. GMRE (talk) 19:17, October 1, 2015 (UTC)

You spy that GTA wiki is not Grand Theft Wiki! That's what it was, am I right? Kronos Talk 05:21, October 5, 2015 (UTC)

There's a difference???!!!
Oh... oh wow there is
Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 14:58, October 5, 2015 (UTC)
Yup, that's the one. I could have fixed that, but then we wouldn't have had this little discussion. GMRE (talk) 15:29, October 5, 2015 (UTC)
Rather interesting that they did that. We have closer ties to Grand Theft Wiki for...various reasons, that's why they were our affiliates. Kronos Talk 20:12, October 5, 2015 (UTC)
