Extensions configuration and requests on R6S Wikis

Hi; it's been 3 months since I asked Mr Pie 5 to get 3 extensions vetted and to configure 2 installed extensions (List - discussion here) but he has no answer from the dev team. Is there any problem with extensions dependencies ? Could the dev team configure extensions at first ? --CreativeC38 (talk) 19:35, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

I can assure you that he did request that all those extensions be vetted. The reason for the delay in getting a response is that your requests coincided with our upgrade of the installed version of MedaiWiki. The requests have not been forgotten and they are still in our queue to be vetted. Since the dev team has not gotten to them, there really is nothing that we can report other than what i've just said — Game widow (talk) 19:50, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
I always trusted him; I taught more of a mistake or some kind of bug in the ticket system. Thank you --CreativeC38 (talk) 20:01, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
It's just unfortunate timing, sorry it's taking so long — Game widow (talk) 23:12, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

The space allocated is 500x80 so it should be fine, can you provide a screenshot? — Game widow (talk) 23:45, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Is there possible to change my username?

As you can see in my signature, my username is kinda odd because I created this account using third-party login (Twitch). If this username changing is possible, I want to change it into SNN95. Thank you. Snn9576059 (talk) 17:03, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Yes, just follow the steps hereGame widow (talk) 18:52, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Useful website resources

Not sure where this might fit on the help wiki, but I came over this website yesterday, which looks very useful for a wide range of stuff in the wiki editing process. Such as this XML converting tool for making XML game files more readable when making templates for infoboxes. --Pangaearocks (talk) 14:23, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

Cool site, i'll see if we can add it to one of the pages — Game widow (talk) 14:45, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
Found another site here that managed to convert XML files that I'm then able to import into Open Office (Or Excel, surely) and show the data in proper tables instead of a long list (not very useful). Will save me a ton of time when I'm trying to get an overview of lots of variables from hundreds of XML files. Doing that manually with the tool I first mentioned here (via tree view) was not fun. I searched high and low for such a feature, and this site appears to do the job.
The first site is better if the XML file has the same structure for all items, but typically that is not the case as each item will only mention tags it uses/overrides from a parent file. Which means you need to look through the whole file and slowly increase your list of possible infobox variables. The second tool will list everything in a table (at least on the XML files I tested with), with empty values where appropriate.
It is perhaps a bit on the side of what is usually covered in here, but I do think it could be pretty useful, especially for wikis needing overhauls, or for wikis starting out with newly released games (depending on how accessible the game data is of course).

Another one I happened to come across that I've found useful: Unfortunately it doesn't look like it's possible to import wikitable code and work with it there, but it can be useful for creating tables from scratch, or if any of the other import formats can be used. I always find it hard to work with wikitables in code only, at least if they are more complex so you can't use the double-pipes. Pangaearocks (talk) 11:18, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
