  • Hi Fewfre

    You obviously noticed that user Lilpup5555 making worthless edits and trying to take charge. My whole October has sadly turned into following this user round the internet because he keeps copying content from our wiki (Rainbow Magic Wiki) and pasting them onto other unrelated wikis and he's done this quite a few times now. If the user does anything else, please consider adding to my forum [1]. Thank you.

    • Yes, I've noticed. Already reported them to wikia for giving legal advice (and in such a way that makes it sound like it's official plus making a news post about it). And I've also removed the pages they created acting like an admin.

      Thanks for taking the time to inform me of this user, if nothing else I've been wondering where the messages were being copied from. I hope your troll gets dealt with.

  • Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am really sorry to tell that the COPPA has been updated, which means that once you get protection for this wiki, no Fandom Users will have the ability to contribute to this wiki. You can visit Wikia Labs via your admin dashboard to turn on the feature "Require all contributors to log in".

    • No offense, but your not wikia staff as far as I can tell and should not be be messaging other users in a legal advisory capacity, especially without a link to an official news post by wikia. Plus, an official report from wikia would not ask, they would simply make an announcement that all wikis will do this for legal reasons and just require logins after removing that option. They likely know of the issue (if there is one) and are either handling it or planning to make an announcement. It would be safest to wait. The wiki won't be taken down, as wikia would either lock all wiki immediately or figure out a way not to need to.

      Edit: If you wish to talk about this with wikia, please use the contact form, or discuss it on community central.

      Edit2: Please also see here. We've already had this discussion and wikia was fine with allowing anon discussions here.

    • Hello Lilpup5555,

      FANDOM does not have COPPA updates. Turning on the protection for a wiki is a temporary method to protect the community from vandalism. It's not COPPA related. Please do not spread false information to our communities. If you have any questions, please visit our Community Central or contact us via Special:Contact. Thanks for your cooperation.

    • Okay, more major edits!

      The Staff tables are almost entirely complete. Give me one more week and every staff in the game will be there. ( ~w^)Come to think of it, I've literally typed out 100% of the data in the tables there since I deleted all of the old content, all alone. That's kinda cool.

      Regarding the parts page, I've added a "Rarity" column in all of the tables which I thought was necessary missing info. I've also tried to make them sortable for that particular addition but I wasn't able to do that... I'm such a noob at doing this stuff! Oh and I REALLY want to pre-sort them in a way to appear sorted as the page loads. Is there a way to do that or is the only way to do so is by retyping the entire table row by row?

      And then there's another complicated issue. Some parts in the parts page have special effects that are not included anywhere in there. Although as it is... The tables are already very messy with all those 1st and 2nd effect columns to add a 3rd, I can't even imagine how it will look. I believe there's way too much unnecessary info for every part than what someone might actually need. As in, each part in the game can have 6 rows from +0 to +5, and then there are 4 columns for each single bonus that part may have with stats at level 1, 99, 120 and 150. That's way too crowded, don't you think? Too crowded that each part in the game can have its very own table and still be considered moderately long.

      I was thinking if we can only include the lowest and highest grades only, with their lowest and highest levels for each part in the game for all the data that we might actually need for the sake of comparison and the rest of the grades between them become just easy guesswork. I understand that deleting some data might be wrong, but as it is, there's way too much missing info that the tables almost look blank while being too crowded at the same time.

      But come to think of it, a table for each part in the game won't be such a bad idea after all for multiple reasons: it won't have as many columns as the majority of parts don't have a 2nd effect let alone a 3rd, there won't be a needed "rarity" column or a "store?" column because that can be noted below with notes of how to unlock them at the shop as well, parts with special effects can be talked upon in more detail, and there won't be any data loss while making them more compact at the same time. The parts table was initially copy-pasted from the Japanese wiki and then added upon and with so much data in there as of now, the table has started to look terrible... Just adding my 2 cents though and I wanna know what you think. :3

      Regarding the Raffle sub-header, I thought it would make a great addition especially as I've talked about the topic in detail when someone in the comments section argued with PichuYang that the Treasure Raffles are better than Premium ones. Not to mention it had very little details in one single paragraph before I made its own header. I was just expanding and never got the idea of making a new page dedicated to the topic, but yeah I think that might work. I can add the probabilities, the price table and the paragraph underneath the sub-header. The "Facts to consider" part is paired with tips though and the only "fact" in there is the last point so all others should be filtered out and be left in the tips page I guess? Also, it will be cool to add an entirely new table in the new Raffle page with all possible "common", "rare" and "super rare" drops. That will take me and some others (hopefully) some work though.

      By the way, is it possible to follow comments somehow? Sometimes people ask questions and stuff in the comment sections but I get to reply a few days later... Some of them probably never knew they got a reply. ( >-<)

      I've sent a friend request on Discord, Princess of Arabia, #1980. I don't use any other form of social media (or any real-life social capabilities either lol...) This wall has gotten really long. xD

      1. Nice
      2. Table with multiple layers of headers can't be sorted; but you can "cheat" by make multiple headers for every column (did it just now). And there is no way to pre sort other than order of the rows. If you tell me how you'd like them sorted I can move the rows around in source mode.
      3. Yah these tables probably need a rework. But since I haven't played GPS2 I'm not sure what is or isn't helpful / what else should be included. Like I don't understand why stats aren't just listed for level 1 and the actual max level. The point of listing max.min is so you know what ones are good to start out at, and what ones to focus on long term.
      4. I'm not against a table for each part, but it also makes information less minimalistic. It's been done before a few times (ex: Crops (Pocket Harvest)), but should be avoided unless there's really no other good way (I'm not sure if that's the case here). While that example I linked before looks nice and has a lot of information, it's also hard to compare information or just get a good general sense of what's happening (it's worth it in that case, just both ways have pros / cons). I'd probably have more of an opinion if I saw how you'd wanna set it up.
      5. Sounds good! True, having a raffle drop table would be helpful and probably warrants a page just for that.
      6. If they have an account then yes, you get notified automatically (I think you even get emailed by default, though I always turn email settings off for all sites so I'm not sure). If it's an anon, I think if they visit the wiki using same IP then they get the notification symbol (though not 100% sure). Otherwise, they'd just have to manually check. But your reply can always help other people checking the comments!

      I also don't use social media (other than reddit / twitter, but I don't use them for the "social" aspect but instead to get info).

  • I am not sure how comment system works here, but just want some confirmation. Does commenting or replying a comment automatically create a new page? Also, will it give any impact to server? Thanks.

      Loading editor
    • The comments system uses sub pages in a special "comment" namespace, yes. That way there's access to user history / wiki syntax / other normal wiki features. And the impact is minimal. Space isn't a concern, and if a page has a lot of comments it only loads the first I think 25 (with the rest only loaded if you choose to). And comments are only loaded once you scroll to the bottom of the page anyways.

      Message wall / forum system use a similar idea with subpages, although both are a little more complex since they have message titles and can be closed/removed.

  • Hi, I figured out that GPS 2 could use a new page called "Resources", to discuss about the resources that players asked frequently : Medals, Fuel, Nitro, Research Points, Coins, Banana. Could you help me on adding "Resources" page? Or do discussions needed? Thanks for conern.

      Loading editor
    • I'll add the page link. For the most part any new pages are allowed so long as they don't talk about something that is summed up in a couple sentences / a picture. This seems like a good page as it talks about various things, of which cause confusion. In the future, you can add new pages by clicking the little edit icon on the game nav (next to the "hide" link), and then editing that page.

  • Hi, is there any rules and regulations, aside from the Style Manual when editing? (Of course no vandalism or trolling) I made some few edits, mainly updating game info.   You can take a look if you are free.

    Also, if I want to create a table to follow the similar style as an existing table in Kairosoft Wiki, is it allowed to copy paste within Kairosoft Wiki, or request admin? Thanks.

      Loading editor
    • Sadly I'm bad about writing down the rules; figure they're mostly common sense - other than style manual ones - and find writing them annoying (though doing so has been on my todo list for forever).

      copy paste from one page to another? sure. No clue why wikia defaults to the other one, rarely see wikis use it (at least when they have editors that edit in source mode). Assuming you use the VisualEditor (default editor), copy-pasting is the best way to get the style. For something more complicated (having columns extend multiple cells or force a column to sorry values as numbers, etc), you can contact an admin if your not comfortable using source mode.

    • I am familiar with couple of codes so it should be fine if I wanted to.

    • That's fine. That part of why I'm so glad they added "Moderator" groups; allows people the powers without forcing (or in some cases allowing) them to be a figurehead or burden with responsibility.

      You now have spidey senses; use them wisely.

  • Hey there, thanks for the help with the tables again. Sorry if I bother you once more, I'm not very design-savy, I'm more of a research grunt and I don't know who else to ask. ;)

    So I've been adding stats icons to the various tables which saves a lot of space - and even looks decent on most pages (Items (Home Run High), for example. On others, it looks horrible, especially Activities (Home Run High). Do you have any more of your mighty HTML-wizardry to improve on that?

    • If I have the choice, I prefer the troll-free environment. ;) Trolls suck up so much energy and in the end, you spend less and less time doing what the original reason was for getting involved with the wiki: enjoying games/comics/series.

      I guess the Kairo games are pretty much perfect for editing on the side - most of them allow some free time in between "action phases". But I can also see how they attract a special crowd - mostly kids and/or retro gamers. Not the hardcore gaming power nerds you would find in more mainstream games.

      For me, they're pretty much perfect. I do things on the side while playing them: reading, editing here, watching TV, even studying for exams. ;) I've been hooked ever since I discovered PL Story...

        Loading editor
    • I used to find them perfect to play between classes; and once you're far enough, you can just leave them running while you do other stuff. But I just find myself doing other games / things instead.

  • sorry if this is not about kairosoft games, but can u tell me what playable characters in partia 2 and who to talk to them to recruit?

    • Sorry, it's been awhile since I played it, and I don't recall any specifics. Playable characters shouldn't be to hard to figure out since they have unique portraits. And I believe using the leader to talk to them is usually a safe bet.
