Hi, I wanted to give you an update that I'll be taking over as Wiki Manager for this wiki from Shrev64. Please feel free to send me a message if you need any technical help or want to reach out to Fandom!
So, Mark now has two separate playthroughs of Factorio on his channel; one solo and one co-op with Bob. Neocarleen decided to split them up, but I don't know how we should label them. Should they be considered as a singular playthrough, or should they be separated with each episode article noting the difference, and if so, how could we make them stand out more from one another (like adding something to the template to indicate that this is a second playthrough or separate co-op run)?
We already have many games (The Forest, Slender: The Arrival, [[[Minecraft]] and others) that are revisited becuase of a new version or personal reasons, the videos are numbered in a single order of release for the games, and a note can be added explaining the difference from the previous video in the list.
More technically, it's not "one solo and one co-op", it's one 2016 playthrough, Mark restarted and decided to invite Bob next episode, and a new playthrough that just started.
Does this ring a bell to you at all? This person claims they've supposedly seen or found evidence that Mark had a video of him playing Deltarune somewhere before deleting it for unknown reasons, yet I couldn't find anyone ever mentioning this let alone the actual video.
If Mark had a stream or a video of Deltarune even for 10 minutes it would be discussed on Twitter and Discord nonstop. That's quite an elaborate fanfic there, but for something "often debated" there's literally no mention of "THE FAMILIAR PRINCE", or even "Deltarune" and "Markiplier" together, anywhere.
What do you think of the Unus Annus thing? Mark made triple sure that he wants this to be "an experience for those who lived in the moment" and DMCA'd channels that reupload videos. He has the right to strike reuploads, but I believe creating a temporary content is... kinda dumb, in this age undoing something would require not uploading anything publicly to begin with. But this is the problem with how much these should be documented, just have a list? One article with notes? Have empty video articles, short descriptions, long descriptions, audio transcripts? Have them hidden under a subpage or open? I'd prefer have pages say as much as possible, but if the channel's point that things stop existing after some time, the site may be targeted.
Ye, I agree, it's kinda dumb to focus on temporary, 'one in a life time' content in the age of digital media where everything you do is extensively documented (plus, you also have to consider that not everyone who watches you is aware of this even being a thing and I'm not a big fan on capitalizing on the fear of missing out). When he first did this for 3AM AT THE KRUSTY KRAB on a stream, his viewers immediately backed it up and reuploaded it onto several places and others have outright said they're gonna be preserving Unus Annus videos despite the lack of Mark's consent.
Unless we directly reupload his content, there's nothing wrong with documenting it, it's within our rights. My idea was to basically create these pages as usual, same format, but for the separate channel with a separate episode flow (as in, we don't link them to his main channel). Maybe we can also make another episode template and change its color from the standard red to something like black and white to better reflect the page.
I like to think that if a livestream has multiple games, then it's not a dedicated episode for those games and put those in a separate livestreams list, especially since there are countless of those on Twitch, or it would require having the next and previous fileds for game1 game2 etc, or a separate navigation template. Videos would still be added to games page.
I guess he's Robert then, since he's fine with it, though he's literaly never been called that elsewhere.
Should Unus Annus videos have some overall summary of what happens in them seeing as Mark intends to delete this channel in a few months? Adding to that, do we need links to videos either since they'll no longer be available or do we just preserve the URLs for some reason?
BTW, I've never heard of Norbert Moses up until I started looking at Unus Annus' content, should this be just part of the Unus Annus page, or should it be considered its own separate channel article, even though its already been deleted.
At the end of Purging Our Sins with a Neti Pot, Mark says if they were to get 1 million subs by the end of the week when that video came out, they'll hand-deliver that channel's golden play button to a lucky subscriber. Did anything ever come out of that?
User:Blakelangermann2/Twitter contacted me on Twitter and claimed that he's blocked (it was like 2 months ago, why message now?) becuase his little brother made some edits while he was away. Considering his grammar and that he spammed you on Outlast Wiki, and now me, I don't think this excuse will slide. He still asks for the unblock and promises to do better, what do you think of it, should he get a chance?
Just to be sure, he's only offence bad grammar and putting unnecessary dots in the articles?
No clue why he contacted you 2 months after this nor why he's so obsessed with it. Yes, that's his only offense, continuous unnecessary edits across various articles. He made 20+ changes in less than 20 minutes, distorting a number of articles. There's always someone's imaginary brother behind the act.
One of the reasons I banned him is that he clearly doesn't know how to use a wiki and if you look at his various other contributions across FANDOM, he has been warned multiple times, even banned from some of the wikis, for failing to follow its code of conduct and guidelines. On top of that, he doesn't seem to have the grasp of basic English grammar, as most of his contributions are poorly structured. I frankly don't wanna bother with him, cause his edits are too sporadic and he constantly fails to improve on them, but if you wanna unban him, that's fine with me.
Should Unus Annus video list have its own sub-page seeing as its a major channel in Mark's history and it's got an entire series worth of videos? If so, maybe we can alight it alongside other sub-pages (2012, 2013, etc.) on the 'list of videos' article.
Haven't really been paying attention (I should now that it's close to ending) so don't know about the others, it most likely may've happened offscreen. But for the third one I think you mean these 1, 2, 3.
Appears to be the case, it gave me "bitly (Block #471260)" error and a link to some licensing page.
Not that I like having shortlinks anyway, people can put whatever they want there and checking where they lead takes some time, so I had replaced such links if there were any. Not to mention some redirects can have extra inside them.
BTW, since Mark's father and grandad both have the same name, wouldn't that make Mark's dad Cliffton Jr.?
EDIT: I've also been thinking, what if we only list people on the wiki if they've appeared at least 3 times alongside Mark and are not somehow directly or indirectly related to him? Since there are pages of people who appeared once alongside him in a one-off video.
What do you think of Unus Annus' challenge section; is it fine as it is or should something be done to rearrange it? Cause I wanted to list all the important ones on a single page to showcase some of their major events, but just look at this giant drop list (and I've only gotten through the first 5 months so far). My major issue is that the sub-headers are kind of flooding the page, but I can't figure out a workaround and I don't think creating a sub-page would help either.
Sidenote: I've sourced some of the stuff on the wiki from various Unus Annus videos, what do we do with those citations once the videos get removed? Do we just leave them as they are and just use it as a reference point for video titles and timestamps?
Weird, I thought pop-ups were part of the coding by default.
Also, should friends even be a category? Technically, most articles relating to these individuals are often Mark's close or longtime friends, so it's kind of redundant at that point. Should it be removed or should we get a better alternative for them, a more professional sounding category if you will?
Doesn't sound like a useful information if there are no visible differences, and there were only 4 of them who never worked at the same time. It's probably a safe bet any video after February 2019 is edited by Lixian unless it's a vlog or on the other channel.
How do you get a specific YouTube channel URL to show the channel registered name on the Person template? It shows up on Mark's page, but not on MarkiplierSINGSbadly (for Mark it says MarkiplierGAME, but James' page only has the default 'channel link').
Do we by any chance know if Sunok's last name is Fischbach? I was thinking of listing a surname instead of just living it as Sunok (looks kinda plain), but I don't think we know if she ever took the name Fischbach and if she did, did she keep it after her divorce.
I would rather have all links like these to go to an official dev page or social media instead that has these links (like this, and I see it's possible to upload it there in "Files" section") if possible, "X Wiki" or blogs or at worst at this wiki forum where they're visibly validated and better preserved, and then link to there. This isn't a game hosting website, we're at most obliged to only describe the differences.
In short, if a gamepedia wiki has the template or the redirect table to other websites, including gamepedias, otherwise it will have to pass through Gamepedia Help, which for the most of gamepedias only has these shortcuts. When in doubt:
I was wondering, can you message me privately (is that even possible on here)? I am having an issue and would like to talk to one of the heads here. You can also email me if we can't talk privately here (email@example.com)... Hopefully you get back to me soon. Thanks!
Unless you're trying to sell me anything or gossip about other staff members, and considering it's something about editing, I don't see a reason why can't you just name the issue here, it would be faster to solve and give me an idea how serious it is.
The problem with speaking publicly is, I'm already worried about one of the 'mods' being nasty about edits being reverted when I edit them to update with new facts. I wanted to discuss this 'privately' so I (and not just me) don't have to worry about being targeted for more rudness. I thought you'd be willing to listen and help out if needed. Never mind, I guess.
I take it's the "Lussy" trivia? I agree that the owner's spelling is the correct one, but it was rightfully brought up that you should check the reference markup before making an edit.
I know the concerns of mod abuse too well, but if you politely bring the question to the mod in question, he should (if haven't already) as politely explain why an edit was reverted and how source information properly.
If I'm mistaken about the issue or if you continue to have a disagreement, then point at the problem directly or ask them ask me about it.
Is it possible to have separate tabbers like the ones on games page and use redirects to link to the sub-headers that are located within the tab on that same page (in this case, games)? Weirdly worded, but let me give you an example; Like on games page, there are sub-article linked under tabs (list of games/2017, etc.). Let's say those sub-pages had sub-headers I could use redirects to refer to. Can I use redirects to, well, redirect, the reader to the main page (games) of that template's sub-article tab (list of games/2017) instead of having it redirect directly to the list of games/2017.
I'm asking this for another wiki I'm currently working on and was wondering if you had any ideas? Thanks in advance.
I don't think there's a way to do that. You can link to a paragraph or to an element with id by appending # to a link, but it will open the page that contains it. Alternatively, you can code to force click the tab on parent page and jump to the section, but you'd have to link to the button that does that. These all are effectively separate pages, and they don't see the contents of each other.
Unless the you make subpages into templates and include them, or make each section of sub-pages into templates and use one-layer Tabber. Tabview is going away either way.
I want to say first that don't mind at all that you changed a lot of the format of the page, since I had no intention on finishing it and hoped someone would come to fill in the details, so thank you very much for picking it up.
I just wanted to make one major suggestion, is that your table of endings I think should be vertical instead of horizontal. Since the endings themsleves are the largest number (31 in total) it makes more sense that that should be a vertical dimension. As it is right now, the table is much wider than the page itself and causes an awkward scroll bar to appear.
Wanted to ask you, what exactly is suppose to count towards Darkiplier's "appearances" in Mark's videos? For the past year, I've seen people list timestamps for videos were Mark becomes ominous or drastically changes tones to something menacing for a brief moment, yet none of them are directly tied to what Mark considers his character.
Looks alright, maybe we can add a few more types of tags to it and maybe title the "scary edit" tag something more specific (not sure what though)? Also, would these be implemented across every one of Mark's videos or just the Darkiplier ones and regarding his alter ego, what are we to do with the list of Darkiplier's supposed appearances when I wouldn't exactly count every one of Mark's scary edits as a Darkiplier moment.
So, I was just wondering, how do you become an admin on this wiki? I know I'm obviously not eligible to become an admin on this wiki yet, so what are the requirements? I would like to become an admin on this wiki.
I'd say just continue contributing, to which you've been quite a help lately. There's nothing really a normal user can't do that an admin can, besides moderating and scripts, it'd be just a sign of trust that you understand and can validate the rules and style.
