How to make a signature?

Hello, I have noticed all the other people when commenting on the Warriors Charart approval page have signatures. How do you make your own? Please help!

-Warriorcatfan237

Hello Warriorcatfan237, I am Thunderheart. I am not staff, but I can make you a siggy.

It requires lots of coding, so if you're good at it, it's fun, but if you aren't good at it, just ask for help.

Just go to my talk page and request the links, the font, and what your siggy says. My siggy is below, for an example.

Who am I? I am Thunderstar. Any more questions? Good, now go away. 19:20, May 23, 2015 (UTC)

How do I put down what books/couples I like on my account page

Hi, 

Can you please tell me how to put down the books I own and the couple's I like. I've seen it on other users pages and I can't figure out how to do it. Please get back to me on my talk page at Embetstar11. 

Thanks,

Emberstar

How do I make a image of my cats like they have on warrior cats wiki?

Hello                                                                 I've seen how other people will make their cats so they look like warrior cats wiki cats and I would like to do that to. If you know the answer please tell me on my talk page at Emberstar11     

Thanks, 

Emberstar

Luckily for you, Emberstar, there are plenty of tutorials on this wiki explaining how to do Charart. Here's an example of mine:

How to cite?

How do I cite my sources? - Warriorfan123

I just asked someone to do it for me. I edited what I wanted to, then put the source and then someone did it for me. I'm still figuring out myself how to do it, though. But for the meantime, I just asked for help. -FireFoxx330

Adding Citations

Hello, I want to add a citation for the new book Leafpool's Wish to Squirrelflight's page. Can someone tell me how to do that? -Twilight Joltik, May 6th, 2014

Hey! Put { { r | (book title initials) | (page number) } } for a cite. For example, if I was citing from page...*throws dart at number board* 127 of *throws dart at book checklist* The Sight, I'd do { { r | p31 | 127 } } gives "Revealed in The Sight, page 127," without the spaces of course. If you're citing from an eBook, do { { r | mo | chapter 7 } } and you get Revealed in Mistystar's Omen, chapter 7. (again, without spaces.) Hope this helps! --

Deleting Blogposts

I have realised my blog about Millie's warrior name has violated the set rules for blogposting. How ca I delete my blog myself, if that is possible? — Kurutto 23:01, June 15, 2012 (UTC)

If you desire a page deleted, add the {{Delete}} template.  Kitsufox  Den/CoSC 12:18, June 18, 2012 (UTC)

Missing Edits/Can't Login

Please help! I was editing and I left to get something out of the car and... BAM!!! all my edits and following pages, GONE! I don't know what to do. I can't log in either. I'll put in my password and username, (the correct ones by the way), and it says my password is wrong. If I hit I forgot my password, some crap about my e-mail comes up! It's Featherstorm9678 by the way. Please help! I love this wiki and can't stand it not working.

New Question

Is it possible to draw a cat with this site? because all the draws of the cats looks like they have all the same model (like the apprentices, they've their tails up). I'm a new user so I don't know much how to use the site! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cherrynose (talkcontribs) 17:35, 30 January 2013

I'm sorry. You cannot use this website itself to create art. Our Character Art department has created blanks that are used when producing the illustrations for our articles, but they're each custom produced by hand using stock lineart. Lineart which we ask not be used anywhere but this website.  Kitsufox  Den/CoSC 17:55, January 30, 2013 (UTC)


How do you create a profile with stuff like personal, what books you own. I have seen other users with profiles like this and I would like one for my own. I'm quite a new user, sorry if this question uses up your time! Ambershine223 (talk) 17:38, July 1, 2013 (UTC)Ambershine223

Question

This is a little random....but do you have a list of every Clan cat? There may be one right in front of my face but I can't find one. Can you send me a link? Thanks Tigerfur of Bloodclan (talk) 00:24, August 3, 2013 (UTC)

I do have one, but it's on Google Docs. I can give you the link here.

Time Above Contribute Menu

How did you add the time above the contribute menu?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jeff16306 (talkcontribs) 23:12, August 18, 2013‎

Through the MediaWiki's Common javascript, I just imported the script from the dev wiki. In other words, I put the following coding into the MediaWiki:Common.js page of this wiki:

// Clock for both skins
importArticle({type:'script', article:'w:c:dev:DisplayClock/code.js'});

Coloring the Blanks

What are some programs that are good for coloring the blanks? --Tinyclaw336 (talk) 23:04, August 19, 2013 (UTC)

GIMP and Paint.Net are popular. Some people also use photoshop. GIMP is the most popular, though. Neon Skylite "Just take a chance with me!" (Talk Page!)

How does the Apperentice System work?

Hi. I'm new to this wiki. I know zero about editing and I am typing this based off of the format of questions above me. Going through pages, I keep hearing about 'apprentices'. Is this some kind of system where I can get help from a senior member? Thanks! -Box —Preceding unsigned comment added by BoxCat (talkcontribs) 21:12, 25 October 2013

We no longer run the apprentice system for the general Wiki. Some of the projects do have an apprentice rank, but that's for within the indivudual project. This Wiki gives a lot of the basics for editing. If you have further questions, feel free to ask. To get you started, though: Sign comments on talk and help pages such as this with ~~~~ and it will automatically link your userpage and put in a date.  Kitsufox  Den/CoSC 13:10, October 26, 2013 (UTC)

My talk and whole everything on my page was erased?!?!

I had recently reached 50 edits, and now my page says I have 2. What in StarClan's power happened? Has this happened to anyone else? Do you know how to fix it? My pictures, DarkClan map and EVERYTHING was erased!!! Please help!

May StarClan light your path, Moonfire. Moonfire's not happy 14:47, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

I suspect it is that you're confused about things you've earned on one wiki. Each wiki is an independent entity which you earn your own stats for. We do /not/ do badges here at all. We do not permit non-canon content. I suspect you're looking for content from another wikia site, since you show no sign of having come here previously.  Kitsufox  Den/CoSC 18:45, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Help with coding and userboxes

Hello! I'm new. I don't really know how to code but what i'd really like to know is how to code a userbox. Thanks! (Some basic coding skills too.) User:RavenJayFeather November

How do you edit Lionblaze?

I saw a typo on Lionblaze's page, but when I tried to fix it, I realized there was no edit button! I made sure I was logged in and that there were edit buttons on other pages, but everything was normal! Please help me! ~DawnheartStormclan16

Lionblaze's article receives a multitude of edits daily, many of which deteriorate the hard work put into by the editors of the community. To counter this deterioration, it has been protected from new users. Just wait a few days after joining and then you'll have no problem I'm sure.

On the subject of images...

1. Does the 1 image per user page exclude a user uploaded avatar? I uploaded a warrior avatar I made, and I want to upload a wiki-style image of the same warrior.

2. Are the templates for the cat images available for download, in order to make aforementioned wiki-style image? If so, how?--Robinflame 21:46, June 3, 2014 (UTC)

1. No it does not apply to user avatars however once you upload it to warriors wiki it does apply.
2. Yes they are, you can find them on PCA's page. c: -Ducksauce 04:02, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

Charart for StarClan

I wonder if cats of StarClan shouldn't have any scars or torn ears. Why are you drawing them? The wounds are healed in StarClan, aren't they? I'm looking for the answer on your Wiki, but it's a little difficult because English isn't my native language.

How Do I Do Charart?

I just want to know how to make pictures of cats. Like when you go on a cat page there is a pic someone made? How do you make those? -Blizzardheart

Hi! Just join PCA and have adequate knowledge about digital art and a program to do it. GIMP is the most popular.

However it is really cluttered. Appledash, a senior warrior of PCA has stated although it's good other projects need some love. She also once stated to join all projects. If you don't want to, join at least two. Neon Skylite "Just take a chance with me!" (Talk Page!)

Editing Pages

Are regular users allowed to edit Wiki pages-as in characters, books, etc.? Or do you need to ask for permission from an admin or something? And are all users allowed to edit the 'Ceremonies' section, or are only staff allowed to do that? (I've noticed several characters with missing Apprentice Cermonies, even if it took place in a book.)

Also, is there a rule for uploading avatars? I assume it is allowed to use a picture I took/drew, but am I allowed to use any photo from the internet that I find? I'm worried about copyright stuff and all that...

~~~~Mapleclaw

-Hello, Mapleclaw. Welcome to the wiki. Here is the policy for images--> Policy:Image Use
If I remember correctly, you might have to wait a few days to edit some articles as they've been user protected from new users. I hope this helps.--KittyLover22 (talk) 21:39, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

Infoboxes

Could you give me the code for the infoboxes? I'm having a lot of trouble with them on my own wiki (s warrior cats role-play) and I like the ones here. I hope I'm not being rude.

~Kwikstorm :3

I suppose if you're using wiki code editor instead of the visual editor, you may insert a userbox using the following syntax:
{{User Owns Into the Wild}}
It will be shown on the page as follows
Userbox-ItW This user owns a copy of
Into the Wild.
Similarly, you can use other user boxes. In fact, if you have typed the following text in the code editor
{{User 
or
{{User O
and so on, there'll be a prompt giving you some hint of the userboxes (or templates, more exactly) that you can choose. Hope you can figure this out ;-)

Not all the clan cats?!?

When I went on the thunderclan and Starclan pages there were only like nine cats! There are way more cats in that clan, like Hazeltail. There are also way more Starclan cats! Why aren't they there?

Hello, random user who hasn't left a signature so I cannot identify you!

If you mean the cats up the top, they are the most frequently viewed. Take these screenshots I did here. Firestar is a commonly viewed page, so he's up there. That's what it means for you!

Also remember to sign your posts like this. Neon Skylite "Just take a chance with me!" (Talk Page!)

Actually, lies! I copy pasted the code into there. You can only sign on talk pages, but you can also copy paste you siggy anywhere! You could put it all over your favourite character's article. (Actually, no do not do that) Just remember to use the source editor rather than the visual. A help page about siggies is here. Buh bye! -- Neon Skylite "Just take a chance with me!" (Talk Page!)

How to make a signature

I'd like to ask, how do you make a custom signature? Not the ones with the blue link, but the ones with different colored text; shadows, which are links to the userpage. I don't want anyone to do it for me, either. Thank you in advance, anyone who answers this. ~~~~

I wouldn't suggest doing nowiki as it doesn't show anyone who you are, but there are many elements, so I'd suggest searching up CSS or HTML tutorials. Or, you could look at a Sig Tutorial. --Foxey Whispers and enchantments 00:48, July 28, 2016 (UTC)

Leaders With Kits

This question is hypothetical, but if a female leader were to have kits, what would happen? Would the deputy take over for them, or would the leader pass her kits to another queen to nurse? The other thing is would the leader be frowned upon for not raising her own kits?

(November 20, 2016. What are these dates about?)

~That One Penguin

Signature Links

I know what I want my sig to be, figured out the coding n all, did everything the page said to do. But, every time I try to link it back to my page, all of the coding disappears and it becomes blue text. The link is still there. ??How do I keep the coding and the link because obviously they don't like each other. (I believe my current signature shows that, it should say gaylord) (this is homosneksual since my signature won't go from squiggles to my sig.)
