Welcome to Umkemesik's talk page. Thanks to Desceptive for letting me use his template.

Would like to become admin plz.

Still working on signiture smallDa Wyyzrdsmall


Thanks for granting me editor powers on this "new and improved" version of ED. It feels good to be back, and I can't wait to get back to doing my part for ED. — Dэcэpтivэ tc 00:32, 9 February 2021 (EST)

Getting more serious about the wiki I see... :D

  • Nothing says "I plan on being on the wiki more" more than making a custom wiki signature lol Deceptive GC.png 23:09, 12 March 2021 (EST)

Main Page Timers SOLVED

  • This is my rendition of the main page: here.

To break it down, the way it works is as follows:

First, for an XOTN, we need to check if a page exists for the current day, using the {{#ifexist:pagetitle|output1|output2}} parser function. If the page pagetitle exists, MediaWiki will output output1, ELSE if it doesn't exist, output output2. All this really is, is a simple if/else/elseif block.

{{#ifexist: Encyclopedia Dramatica:Article of the Now/{{LOCALMONTHNAME}} {{LOCALDAY}}, {{LOCALYEAR}} | {{Encyclopedia Dramatica:Article of the Now/{{LOCALMONTHNAME}} {{LOCALDAY}}, {{LOCALYEAR}}}} 

Does a page for the current date exist? Output the XOTN page of the current date as a template.

If an XOTN page for the current date doesn't exist, let's check if an XOTN page from one week ago exists. In code, this would be the elseif part of the block.

| {{#ifexist: Encyclopedia Dramatica:Article of the Now/{{#time:F j, Y|-7 days}} | {{Encyclopedia Dramatica:Article of the Now/{{#time:F j, Y|-7 days}}}} | {{Encyclopedia Dramatica:Article of the Now/{{#time:F j, Y|-14 days}}}} }} }}

Does an XOTN page one week back from the current time exist? If yes, use that. ELSE if that doesn't exist, we'll use the XOTN from TWO weeks ago, should it exist. And unlike the previous step where we used an elseif-like construct to check if an XOTN page from only one week existed, here we are simply outputting the XOTN from two weeks ago, whether it exists or not. If an XOTN from two weeks ago doesn't exist, we'll simply get a redlink error.

So, that's about it. I decided to help because I saw you were struggling with it in the sandbox. Hopefully this rendition works as intended.

Here are some other useful resources, that I didn't DM you:

And here's the Magic Words page that I did send you. You can refer back to it here for reference:

  • Awesome, I actually didn't bother looking at the code, I just made it static, but this works too. We will use this, thanks a ton. UMK UMK.gif 02:37, 4 April 2021 (EDT)

Finding certain things in archive.

So, is there a special way that we have to enter some of the pages into to find them? Like for example the sources of articles? How will we be able to find that stuff? Or are we just gonna rely on Crackrabbit for that kinda stuff. 32px Leo Victor II of Belgium (Talk) 13:22 15 May 2021 (EDT)

  • Sorry, I meant to reply a lot sooner. I am currently scraping the web archive. Articles should be done in about a week, not sure if we will publicly release those archives. But they will deffo be given to the wiki Admins. Images are another issue, the scraper is not processing those correctly so I will have to keep working on a solution.

The GNA/BNA/Did You Know categories HAVE to be updated more.

Many of the GNA articles are not new (there old as fuck) some of the BNA ones are also old as fuck and the DYK is similar. It's a lack of attention that is paid to the GNA/BNA/DYK that concernes me, and I belive that that should be fixed. I already did some purging of the {{GNA}} category, which was mostly artilces I restored, and I'm thinking of adding some more articles in GNA, but you get the point. More attention just needs to be paid to those three categories. Dancing Spiderman.gif ^_^ Dancing Spiderman 13:09 5 July 2021 (EDT)

BTW; .wiki is probably dead.

No ones edited it for a week; IDK if that means it's dead, but it means something. Dancing Spiderman.gif ^_^ Dancing Spiderman 14:41 5 July 2021 (EDT)

  • Go to "recent changes" and tell me how dead the wiki is.UMK UMK.gif 02:08, 7 July 2021 (EDT)
    Shit, I misread that as our wiki, did not see the dot.UMK UMK.gif 01:40, 9 July 2021 (EDT)

Hello Mate

Things for creating the new ED Forums Thegibuspyro (talk)

Can you add the ashinine convo with full context?

Please? C0ccwavz (Talk) 19:49 7 August 2021 (EDT)

Block all of these accounts

They're all the same butthurt nigger vandalizing the same page. It would be preferred to protect it to editors only. MarioMario456 20:40, 18 August 2021 (EDT)

Done, appreciate the heads up. I restored your EDioter role as well.UMK UMK.gif 22:23, 18 August 2021 (EDT)

Another willg sock

Here. Also, please protect his page, but this time make it so that EDitors can edit it. MarioMario456 18:18, 28 August 2021 (EDT)

  • Done, thanks. UMK UMK.gif 18:23, 28 August 2021 (EDT)
Quick fix note: The page is still unprotected from editing, the protection should be "[edit=EDitors] [move=EDitors]". You forgot. MarioMario456 18:24, 28 August 2021 (EDT)

May I help with the XOTN pages

TGP Thegibuspyro (talk) 00:57, 11 November 2021 (EST)

Well, can I? or Do I just make sure to not put shit that nobody cares about?

Sure, you should already have access. I also upgraded you to editor. First, a couple of points. Except for Holidays, we don't usually set the XOTN more than a week in advance because news may break. Second, the XOTN should be current news or interest. Third, you need to make sure the XOTN archive is updated. The last one is what people skip. It only takes a minute to update the archive with a title. The POTN is a tiny bit different as you need to update the thumbnail too. Good luck. UMK UMK.gif 21:39, 13 November 2021 (EST)

Thanks for giving me Editors role!

Thegibuspyro 22:37, 13 November 2021 (EDT)

You are young, dumb, and full of cuum. Be sure to pick up good habits from Crackrabbit, Tabs, MarioMario and the bunch. UMK UMK.gif 21:39, 13 November 2021 (EST)
Thegibuspyro 22:37, 13 November 2021 (EDT)
What are the good habits? helping with XOTNS, not being a huge faggot, and not making pages on shit that nobody cares about?

Probably want to move EDP to the v& section on {{Childabuseseries}}

Just got arrested, lol. DoZisafatcunt (Talk) 03:01 3 January 2022 (EDT)

  • Nice, thanks for the h/t UMK UMK.gif 03:45, 3 January 2022 (EST)

XOTN protection

i set the AOTN for today and tomorrow which isn't something non-editors/admins should be able to do. we used to use cascading protection but idk if that's still a thing anymore (don't know what version of mediawiki ed uses) so the pages should probably at least be mass protected when they're made Schnitzel (talk) 15:43, 7 January 2022 (EST)

only admin pages can be cascaded, editors were allowed to edit admin pages on old ED, so give them it MarioMario456 (Talk to me | My contributions) 16:14, 7 January 2022 (EST)
