  • So recently I created the German Alice Wiki. And I just wanted to let you guys know about this. It also would be kind of nice if someone could help me with the design of the MainPage, since I'm really not good at creating stuff like this. I forgot to tell you guys sooner about the creation about the wiki and I hope it's not a big deal. And sorry if there are any mistakes in this message, my native language is German, so I guess there is a big chance for some mistakes in my english messages. ^^ Greetings~

    • Hi! Thank you for letting us know. Don't worry, it's not a big deal at all :) I have a page for tracking all possible languages with alice as the subdomain. We just like to be informed because we need to setup an interwiki link so we can include them to all the applicable pages.

      For the design, you can head over to our Category:Main page templates, MediaWiki:ImportJS, and MediaWiki:Wikia.css. The images should be around Category:Wiki images iirc. You can also check the other Alice Wikis too! There's really no limit with how you want to set up the main page, you can try looking at other wikias and see which one you can incorporate with your wiki yet still keep the "Alice"-esque theme. :)

    • Okay, thanks for the whole informations. c: I just hope to get it right, since I never designed a MainPage in my life before. ^^"

  • Hi!

    I'm currently editing the MainPage Contents templates on the French Wiki, and I have to replace the words "Characters", "Enemies", "Locations", "Weapons", etc… by their French translations.

    Can you tell me which text-shaping you and Ghostdoe used to make the four following images, so I'll be able to rewrite them in French? Thank you!

    Characters
    AMA enemies
    Bosses title
    AMR enemies

    • Hi, Ghost made the rest except the Characters text. I’m not sure what you mean by “text-shaping”. If you mean the font, I used Asrafel. If you mean the tool I used to create the header, it’s Photoshop. (You can use the File history to track down who uploaded the files themselves :) all file pages have this capability)

      You may want to try WhatTheFont to track down the font she used for the other headers. I’m afraid I don’t remember anymore if she mentioned it before.

        Loading editor
    • Thank you!

      I did see that Ghost made the Enemies and Bosses texts, but as she's inactive, I just wanted to check wether you knew how she did, but it's okay, I can make an approximate copy :)

      For the Characters text, well, by "text-shaping" I mean things like the contour color code and gloss level, and all the text settings. But if you don't remember it, it's okay again, I can manage with that!

        Loading editor
    • Ah, sorry no. I’m unaware how she did the layers; however, you may find my consolidated page for some wiki images useful for easy wiki image access. I also believe Ghost made some of her social accounts available on her userpage. You can try contacting her there.

      Yeah sorry, I think I still have the .psd file for the header on my laptop afaik but I’m unable to leave work except on weekends. Normally I use 5px for the text glow but I’m unsure if that’s what I did for the header. You don’t have to follow the English Alice Wiki’s design per se. You’re free to add your own flare that you think bears any semblance from the Alice universe, especially on the main page.

    • Yeah, I know I can use my own design, but unfortunately I'm not gifted for making main pages, and I love the concept and design of MainPage Contents!

  • hello i was wondering does this wiki have a offical "community page" (subreddit,discord etc.) if so could you please tell me it and if not i was wondering if i could create one or help? i feel like we should have a group chat where the whole community can talk amongst each other.

    • Hi, all FANDOM wikis have Special:Chat available on default. It can be easily spotted throughout the wiki. The wiki’s chat is known as Rutledge Asylum and to join, just simply click “Return to Madness”. However, there are usually no other people in there so just head on over at Board:Londerland for active discussions or if you want to start a new one yourself. The board is the designated placed for all Alice-related discussions :)

  • The Streamdress infobox is not linking to the image gallery.

    I tried renaming the category from "Steamdress images" to "Steamdress dress images" like the rest, but it doesn't seem to fix it. Please help me~

      Loading editor
    • It's on me ahahah. When I was adding dress infoboxes, the name parameter has "Streamdress". In the infobox itself, I use a switch for the unique dress articles and Steamdress is included in that, so with the extra character in the name it went to default but it's a non-existent cat so it will not show up no matter how many times a new cat is created. I'm amazed no one has noticed for so long o_O

  • Thanks for your help with the wiki work.

    I think we should add an Alice: Asylum banner on the front page navigation. However, I think we should directly link it to the Alice: Asylum article, instead of the "Characters/Locations/Weapons/etc" menu.

    I also think we should make a new poll about Asylum, but I'm not sure what. Maybe "Will you help donate to help fund Alice: Asylum"?

    • I think we should add an Alice: Asylum banner on the front page navigation. However, I think we should directly link it to the Alice: Asylum article, instead of the "Characters/Locations/Weapons/etc" menu.

      This. Yes on the banner. Definitely. But I'm not much active on following the updates and I'm not a Patron plus I'm starting work soon so I can't actively look out on good designs. The banner can be on top of the slider and doesn't have to actually replace it cuz the thing is about the released games/shorts as compared to letting more people know about AA via the banner. We should also probably need to have a perma section for signing up to the AA email list or a link to American's Patreon if they're still interested to back him up.

      I also think we should make a new poll about Asylum, but I'm not sure what. Maybe "Will you help donate to help fund Alice: Asylum"?

      Yes to the poll too. We can maybe ask the community what poll they'd like that's related to AA? We already did a poll that's funding related to AO. I can't think of something rn as well.

    • Sadly, I don't know how to add it to the portal, so I'll leave it to you. "Template:MainPage_Contents" looks too confusing for me. We just need to let visitors know that AA even exists.

      As for the poll, I don't think we have to ask the community since the community of this wiki isn't very active at all. However, I don't think we should make an obvious poll like "Are you excited for Alice: Asylum" since it's an obvious yes. I get that it's hard to think of a poll since AA is just a proposal at the moment. We'll think of something.

      What no, it shouldn't be that page. It doesn't need to be touched at all. I think you mean {{Maintop}} and looking at its contents, what I meant by above the slider is above {{MainPage Contents}} because that contains the slider :) Or you can also put it above {{Home-Nav}}, your call.

  • On the category exhibition, Alice's image is of the hobby horse (due to the article being semi-protected).

    I am deeply upset and disturbed by this trifling matter, as I do not think it adequately and accurately represents Alice.

    How shall we ever fix this disaster?

    • Oh right, forgot cat exhib includes 130px above as first image. Fixed that and adjusted the RHH icon.

  • Hiya, just popping in to tell you something! :) Have you been watching Mr. McGee's streams of "Alice"?

    The other day, Mr. McGee was doing a Q&A session about "Alice: Asylum" (see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jknH8WjrWFM), and guess what? I was pleasantly surprised when he went on this very wikia to access Dr. Wilson's casebook! :D Well, he tried to access it, anyway. He couldn't load the web page for some reason. Lol! ^_^; Anyway, I think it's really cool that Mr. McGee is aware of the wikia and acknowledges it. When a creator of the work that the wikia is dedicated to is aware of it and actively uses it is an awesome thing, in my opinion! Anyway, yeah, that's all I wanted to say. :)

    • Hey!

      I'm still way, wayyyyyyyy behind (got sidetracked by several series ;-;), so I haven't seen the latest streams. But that's pretty amazing! Sad it didn't load though. Thanks for the update :)

  • Hey :)

    I'm a part of FANDOM's Community Technical team. Part of what our li'l group does is to review JavaScript changes on local wikis. When we have to reject revisions, it's normally clear, cause there's a big red box next to the revision and a link that says Why?.

    But the situation here was a li'l complicated, so I wanted to drop by and make sure you understood what was going on. The reason for rejection can be found at MediaWiki talk:Common.js. But I did resubmit a major part of your revision by making sure all the imports were removed from the top of the page. Obviously, it'd be unnecessary to have those continuing after you've (very helpfully!) moved the imports to MediaWiki:ImportJS.

    I think the fix for the rest of your revisions is pretty easy, but I wanted to let you make those changes and resubmit, just in case you had a different thought.

    Thanks for all your edits! I've really enjoyed seeing all the creative stuff you've done in the last week!

    • Heyy,

      Thanks for taking the time to explain :D I saw you over at pt-br.alice when I was making my rounds so I thought I could help with the other Alice Wikias' ImportJS where I can.

      Regarding the reason for rejection, I was partially following Avatar Wiki's icons.js. They've also used #PageHeader to prepend their icons although it is enclosed in an if statement. I've checked the pages where the icons are implemented and I noticed that the icons are usually after the #PageHeader. Does their implementation also result to the same reason as the rejection? Because I am planning to just fully follow their implementation as Thai's code adjustment had been accepted. I didn't follow it over at Avatar Answers icons.js because there's no need for interwiki links and the length of the title makes the header too messy if I move the icons in the same location, so I'm unsure if the usage of #PageHeader is allowable in that sense.

      Thanks so much :)

    • Hey again :)

      Sorry I didn't see this before now. As you know, from time to time FANDOM changes things about its CSS classes and IDs. Sometimes, we remove CSS elements entirely, and other times we change the way they work or our policy on whether local wikis can change them.

      #PageHeader is one of these IDs that at one time in the recent time we might have allowed to be manipulated--and therefore why Avatar Wiki got their code approved--but now we really don't.

        Loading editor
    • Hi!

      I sent a query via Special:Contact regarding this around the same week of the rejected revision because I just found out that the Help:Customization policy has some exceptions regarding icons. I also actually asked if .page-header__contribution would be a good alternative on where to place the icons. Rappy then pointed me over to Executor and suggested I update the old hover-over expanded image (if in any case you want to double check it's in #344954 in the Help Center, ignore my embarrassing mistake with the toggler T_T). I looked around Wookiepedia's JS and found the EraIcons in MediaWiki:Wikia.js is using Avatar Wiki's JS snippet as well.

      Since you mentioned it shouldn't be allowed, I think it would be helpful for the customization policy to be updated and maybe include which CSS class or ID should not be used? Because the customization policy currently specifies this:

      • Addition of icons for the purpose of content navigation, no larger than 25x25px, positioned to the left of the interlanguage drop-down menu (or directly above the edit drop-down if no interlanguage menu is present)

      And I think others would end up using #PageHeader too due to the wording in this case :)

  • Hiya! :) Remember me? It's okay if you don't, since it's been a while since I stopped by here on the wiki.

    I wanted to let you know, if you haven't heard already, but Mr. McGee is currently doing a live stream playthrough with "Alice: Madness Returns". See here~ https://www.youtube.com/user/obnard/videos

    He started doing it about 4 weeks ago, as a way to raise money for another Kickstarter project, "Out of the Woods" (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/americanmcgee/out-of-the-woods-2) of his (which was successfully funded). I found it about myself, like, the other day at night, when I dropped by to see how he's doing since Spicy Horse got shut down. I'm still watching his gameplay videos, and I'm seriously love watching him play it. I didn't know if you and the other active members knew about it, but again, I just wanted to let you know.

    I HIGHLY recommend you guys watch ALL of his gameplay videos. When he plays, he talks about the production of the "Alice" franchise - characters, symbolism, meanings of certain scenes, pre-production things (demos, things that got cut out, etc.), and the future of "Alice". He mentioned he's currently in talks with EA again, and he hasn't given up on it. Fans get to ask him questions during the streams, too, so if you guys have a YT channel, pop in and take the opportunity to ask him questions (unfortunately, I don't have one. T__T). A lot of stuff he says can be used on the wiki, I believe. He's still not done with it, but he's definitely set on finishing it and then maybe even doing a playthrough with the first "Alice" game. The information he reveals in the game is interesting. Plus, it's really fun watching Mr. McGee die so many times in his own game. XD

    Also, I'm not sure if you guys haven't heard, Mr. McGee started a website he sell "Alice"-related merchandise, called "Mysterious" (https://mysterious.americanmcgee.com/). The stuff he has on there is really beautiful and awesome. He said several times he wants to use both the "Out of the Woods" Kickstarter and his website to help fund "Alice" in the future. So, spread the word if you can. :)

    Anyway, that's all I wanted to say. As always, you guys are doing such an amazing job with the wiki, and I'm really happy to see that you guys are still active and haven't given up on the series. :D See you later~.

    • Urk, I know what you mean. Being broke will always be part of college life hahaha. And really? Wow, that's really lucky!

      Pfft, I know right? They already took down the Storybook for mobile and they still don't ease up on allowing American to get the Alice rights back.

      I like the Vorpal Purse and Vorpal Umbrella. Somedayyyyy when I get a job and saved up, I might get one xD And same here, it will be such a huge accomplishment too! From games to fashion.

      When I saw the link in my feed in FB, I clicked so fast and signed up. Please let this be THE chance for Alice 3 to be accepted.

      @Fiery: what the heck, wow first time I heard that kinda thing. At least you were refunded o_O Maybe you do need to contact American through the provided email in the Mysterious site. At the very least you'd be able to know why PayPal considered it fraud and if you're still interested to buy it, you can try again.

    • Sadly, yes. All part of the college life, which I am so sick of! T _ T It killed me creatively to the point I barely read anything or wrote anything during the summer, not that I really had the time to since I was really busy with other things. I finally got my Human!Cheshire x Alice fic done last year, and I'm actually surprised of the reception I got from fans. I didn't even think it was that good, and I know I have a few mistakes in it that I missed when proof-reading (my fault since I was rushing to finish it). ^_^;

      When I had to get a new phone, I had to download a program to transfer the Storybook app onto my new phone since EA suspended it. I seriously did NOT want to lose the Storybook app, so I spent hours looking for a program to help transfer the app to my new phone. It's now safely in my new phone, but it was a pain in the butt to do. It's so unfair that EA won't allow Mr. McGee to buy the rights back. It's his video game, for Pete's sake. I get that it's "just the way it is for business", but EA's treatment for the series is seriously screwed up. :(

      Same! The designs are really cute and gothic. :D It'd be great to get more "Alice"-inspired merchandise.

      I signed up right away, too! :) I'll do everything and anything I can to support Mr. McGee. A lot of news websites are writing articles about the release, but I don't see any articles from hotshot websites like IGN, Playstation, Gamespot, Kotaku etc. writing articles about (I'm just looking through Google News for results). One of my goals when I become a freelance writer is to help Mr. McGee by writing articles about his plans for "Alice" and publish them on the major video game websites. That way, it can get more exposure.

      @Fieryfurnace999: Maybe PayPal deemed it fraudulent because "Mysterious" isn't a well-known website? They probably think it's sketchy. 0_0 I thought all you had to do was get an account on the website and complete the transaction and then Mr. McGee spends everything off to you. But yeah, definitely contact Mr. McGee and see what the problem was.
