Current Site Leader[]

Who is the current site leader? Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 09:47, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

I think its Andrew 1219.


That'd be correct.Tuma1219I'm mad because no one will enter my Contest! Enter or I'll feed you to a Llama!

OK, then. Now, may I suggest that you either update the skin (I've done some important changes to the TBW skin, which makes it very much better. At least in my opinion and web browser), or make a new one. I'd be happy to design a new one, if you just tell what theme it should be, etc.
In case of updating the skin, just go here, copy the coding, then go here, and paste the coding. Should be easy. Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 23:14, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
Has anyone read this? Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 21:19, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

I've read it but it seems a bit like we're rellying on the TBW wiki skin a little if we do that and it seems more like Andrew should respond to that matter.

Why do you think I ask who is the current site leader? XD
Anyways, I would vote for designing a new skin. Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 19:04, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Yes but you said has 'anyone', not Andrew.

... Well, you're probably right. Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 14:27, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

Score: M1 - 1 MN - 0 XD (Just kidding)

So... Should I design a skin for this wiki? Or at least can't you update it in the meantime? Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 20:30, January 19, 2010 (UTC)

Design.Tuma1219I'm mad because no one will enter my Contest! Enter or I'll feed you to a Llama!

OK. I'll get to it tomorrow. I have to log off soon. Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 22:12, January 19, 2010 (UTC)
What theme should it be? Bara Magna, Mata Nui (Island), etc. Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 16:43, January 20, 2010 (UTC)
Hm... I guess most of you have seen this wiki, created by me. Now, I'm pretty much the only active user (If even I am active), so thought that maybe I could "merge" it with this wiki. By that, I mean importing all of my content articles, templates, etc. here. However, if I'm going to do that, could you also use the skin I have there, because it took some hard work to create, and if you want a new skin here, why not use that? Another good thing is that it can relatively easy be modified, for example it wouldn't be too hard to replace all of the blue with a more golden color. What do you think? Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 11:52, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

To be honest I'm getting a bit tired of seeing the same tan background on all 3 wikis I edit on. I think your skin on that wiki would be perfect here and I am in full agreeance with you. If you want to add gold to that, as you said above, then I think its really your choise. You deserve the right to decide what the background looks like as you put in all the effort.


Use it, but change it to gold.Tuma1219I'm mad because no one will enter my Contest! Enter or I'll feed you to a Llama!

OK. I'll get to the re-coloring as soon as I have time left. (Which might be in a long time - I'll have to do a lot of homework tomorrow) Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 23:05, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
I'm done, I think. To test it, go here, copy the coding, and then go here, edit, past the coding, then preview. Just remember that you must disable the "Let the admins override my skin choice" option under "Skin" in you preferences. BTW, you'll have to make the background of the ogo transparent. Anyways, I think the blue one is better. Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 19:49, January 26, 2010 (UTC)
So... What do you say? I could possibly create a skin with both blue and gold, but it might be hard.
... Do I smell the Scent of Unnoticed Comments? Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 16:43, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, I don't think I'm done yet. I'll do some minor changes first. Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 17:18, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
I think I'm done now. Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 17:21, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
... OK, then. Here are screen shots: Article, User page. Will anyone comment now? Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 16:03, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

0_0 Mata Nui... You've done it again! Brilliant! It looks absolutely fantastic! I love it and that's not just because you showed how my userpage would look. I can tell you've worked really hard on it and I think we have got to use it! Amazing job!

Thanks. Also, I made a few small changes after the screenshots, but it's nothing important. (The borders of the active tab at the to of the page are removed)
Personally, I prefer the blue version, but it's up to you. Mata Nui Talk 20:51, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

New Skin[]

So... Should I update the skin? Mata Nui Talk 18:29, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah. Totally!

OK, then I'll do so. Mata Nui Talk 19:09, February 10, 2010 (UTC)
It should be done now. It might take some time before the changes appear, though. Mata Nui Talk 19:29, February 10, 2010 (UTC)


We are becoming the first Communist Wiki, and since I am site leader, this goes un-questioned.Tuma1219I'm mad because no one will enter my Contest! Enter or I'll feed you to a Llama!

Ok no questions got it, even though I don't think this going to be a good idea. -Mazeka369 Cool! 02:34, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Un-questioned means nobody speaks against it, you CAN ask questions, though.Tuma1219I'm mad because no one will enter my Contest! Enter or I'll feed you to a Llama!

I'll ask a question. When you mean Communist do you mean no voting for anything and whoever is in charge tells you what you can do and what you can not do? -Mazeka369 Cool! 02:44, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I may decide an exception once in a while, but no more.Tuma1219I'm mad because no one will enter my Contest! Enter or I'll feed you to a Llama!

This sounds me more like tirany rather than communism. Theorically, in a communist society everyone is equal, though in the real life it hasn't worked well.--Abc8920 08:44, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Q: (@ Andrew) Are you serious?!?!

@Mazeka and Andrew: Just as Abc8920 said, communism doesn't equal monarchy. Theoretically, communism can be in use in a democratic country.
@Andrew: Are user-held contests allowed?
@M1: I don't think so, but I might be wrong. I would find it very hard to believe, but again, I could be wrong.
@Andrew (again): How on Earth does communism work on a wiki? Will you force everyone to have equal edit counts? To edit every day? If yes to the latter, then I won't remain unblocked for long... Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 17:52, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

User held contest:Absolutely, I encourage it.

No, that's not what I had in mind, MN.Tuma1219I'm mad because no one will enter my Contest! Enter or I'll feed you to a Llama!

Then what will be the effects of the communism? Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 14:15, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

Skin Updated[]

Recently, the Monaco Skin (The default one) was changed, in order to reduce the loading time of the pages. However, this also messed up some parts of our custom skin.

Yesterday, I did what I could to fix the skin, though there are still a few thing, which I'm working on.

But as you may have noticed, I also made a few changes to the widgets. What are your thoughts on these changes? Want to report a problem with the skin? Do it here!

Also, please note that thing's currently look awful if you're using Internet Explorer, but I don't think there is anything which was fix that, at least not at the moment.

Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 15:22, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

The custom skin works perfectly in Google Chrome. I have to say that this new skin looks good!--Abc8920 15:53, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 16:01, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

I noticed a problem with the skin (it's very minor). Could you please put the message that says that you have messages in your talkpage so it's more visible? As it is the same color as the headers it's hard to spot.--Abc8920 16:42, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it was like that before, but whatever... Which color do you suggest?
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 17:06, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

Something that doesn't break the consistency at the same time, but that is distinguisheable fom the gold background. What about blue? Blue contrasts a lot with gold.--Abc8920 17:15, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

OK, I'll see what I can do after I've had dinner.
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 17:24, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
It should be blue now.
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 17:58, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

It works. I just got a new message and the box was in blue! Pretty cool contrast!


Thanks MN! It looks very nice now.--Abc8920 06:41, March 20, 2010 (UTC)


Hey you guys I made a new logo for us you like it Bio Gecko

Picture 7.png

The current one is good enough.--Abc8920 19:31, April 4, 2010 (UTC)


Shouldn't this wiki be combined with CBW? I think it's basically the same thing....


Well CBW is too big for some people. I prefer this community because the people's stories get notice more than on CBW. A smaller wiki can be more welcoming sometimes.


And also, here you can also post canon info. Though now nodoby does that, in the past it was the plan.--Barça.png 6 cups in one year! Barça.png 11:47, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

Okayy I see.

No Site Leader, Nomination.[]

Master Toa has departed and Andrew1219 is inactive. May you have noticed that this wiki has no site leader, I propose changes. What changes? First off I would like to nominate myself for site leader. I'm not an administrator, but I ensure you that I am can lead this wiki well and I'm an admin at TBW and BRW. If I am elected I plan to update the skin because it needs it and update what else needs it. So, what do you think? -Mazeka369 Cool! 02:07, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Well, logic tells me that M1 should be the siteleader, as he is the oldest active user here, and the one with more edits. I don't think the skin needs to be changed (MataNui did a good job designing it). But I think that your proposition is worth considering, and you should contact M1 so we can discuss it.--Barça.png 6 cups in one year! Barça.png 08:36, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

I'll go ask M1 on TBW and drag him over here. The skin just looked like it needed it in my opion and I'm aware of Mata Nui's work. Also thanks! -Mazeka369 Cool! 15:19, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

@Mazeka369: Regarding the skin, do you have any knowledge of CSS? If not, then it won't be very easy. Oh, and what's wrong with the current one?
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 21:05, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

CSS? I kave no knowlegde of that except I'm guessing it has something to do with a wiki's skin. Is it something dealing with MediaWiki? I'll try my best to learn it. Well, no offence but its kinda too contrastant and old. I just have a certain feeling towards it. -Mazeka369 Cool! 00:00, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

See this? Can you guess what it is? ^.^
Anyways, I agree that it is a little... contrasting, but the yellow color was more orange on the computer that I designed it on. Maybe if I just change the color a little, would it be OK then?
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 16:03, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Well, not really, because it would still have the same look. Also I've been looking around help wiki and have gain a very basic understanding of wiki stysteming.-Mazeka369 Cool! 19:51, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

@Abc8920: Well, it depends on what settings your computer screen is using. The skin looked good on the computer which I used until recently, but it doesn't look as good on my new computer.
@Mazeka369: I don't understand what's wrong with it's current look. However, you are free to start designing a new skin whenever you want to, but make sure to do so here, not here. When you think that you are done, just tell us, and we will be able to easily preview it, and if we like it, then we can make it the Wiki's default skin.
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 14:22, September 3, 2010 (UTC)
PS: If I have time, I may design a completely new skin for this wiki. If I do that, then is there anything specific that you want me to avoid or add when I design it?
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 14:22, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

You have a good point. What's wrong with it? It's just that I'm tired of seeing it and whenever I do I start feeling an unusaul sense of guilt that I don't know how to declare. Though thats just me. But that is not concern of everyone else so the main reason would be that the skin is to contrating and lacks creativity. I might need help with the skin coding if I find my self unable to understand. Anyway I'll start with the preview though I'm going to take some time doing so. -Mazeka369 Cool! 03:07, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

How about this? It's just a few modifications from the usual skin, but I think that it looks good enough.
EDIT [17:00, September 4, 2010 (UTC)]: Oh, and I think that I'll be able to help you if it will be needed.
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 16:30, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

That's awesome! That's what I was aiming at! How about we use that skin? it's very nice and I don't think I could do a better job then that. Now lets focus on my nomination for site leader. -Mazeka369 Cool! 19:34, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

OK, I'll fix it.
Oh, and Andrew1219 told me (On TBW) that he's get active again very soon. I just hope that there won't be any problem with that.
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 19:42, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, and the main page will need a re-do on the colors.
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 19:48, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

The skin looks so cool! I can't stop admiring it! So he's back, I'm guessing that means someone is going to have to ask if he still wants to be site leader here? -Mazeka369 Cool! 19:54, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

About Andrew1219: Well, he's not back yet... But I suppose that you could ask him.
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 20:00, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, I'm going to go ask him on his talkpage here. Though I might take a moment looking at the new skin! -Mazeka369 Cool! 20:05, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

It isn't that fantastic, is it? :P
BTW, here is the css file, in case you'd like to study it. One never knows when some knowledge of css might be useful.
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 20:13, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Well its very nice, though I just love the look of it. Maybe too much! I'm still expanding my knowlegde of css and I'll surely be studying your brilliance with it. -Mazeka369 Cool! 20:33, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks again.
Mata_Nui_Signature1.pngMata_Nui_Signature2.png 20:48, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Out of all the time that has pasted Andrew1219 chooses to come back now. Seriously you go inactive for months and someone has to ask do you still want to be site leader. He got site leader because he edited Master Toa's talkpage on another wiki and started a dictatorship sponser with communism. Like Abc8920 said Matoro1 has the experience to be site leader though he didn't want to. So lets see what we've acomplished: A new awesome skin that I can't stop admiring at. -Mazeka369 Cool! 13:50, September 5, 2010 (UTC)

The reason why Andrew1219 chooses to come back right now is most likely because I contacted him yesterday, asking if he wanted to remain an admin on TBW. But it could, of course, be a pure coincident. - Mata Nui   Talk 15:31, September 5, 2010 (UTC)

Are we sure that Andrew1219 is going to stick around? No offence whatsoever. Also I'm still liking the new skin. -Mazeka369 Cool! 20:09, September 11, 2010 (UTC)

No, I'm not sure, but I'm not going to doubt it yet. - Mata Nui   Talk 22:43, September 11, 2010 (UTC)

While I think that Andrew1219 could lead this wiki well he isn't that active and without againstment or offense I don't think he's going to be that active if any change at all. I am running for admin here and hopefully after a month somebody has tooken notice at it. -Mazeka369 Cool! 18:56, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
