      Wiki Theme Change

      I have, after prolonged usage, arrived at the conclusion that the current theme has a glaring problem. The majority issue seems to be the white background, which is exhausing on the eyes and leads to tremendous eye fatigue.

      As such, I am editing the wiki theme to a light shade of blue.

      Update

      Date: July 24, 2015

      Summary: Revised main theme colour to a (slightly) less bright shade of blue.

      Wiki Header Change

      Hello.

      As some of you may have noticed, the current header (aka toolbar on top) of VS Battles wiki is some-what limited in utility (only On the Wiki, Popular pages and Community sections). I have revised the header, and new features included are:

      1) Useful pages tab - Content will be more or less fixed

      a) Official - Wiki rules, guides, etc.

      b) Basics - Links to fundamental pages such as Character Tiering and Attack Potency chart.

      c) Advanced - Some advanced pages such as Calculations, Dimension, etc.

      d) Categories - Main categories on the wiki.

      e) Recent Changes - Last 500 changes on the wiki.

      2) Popular pages tab - Content will be subject to change, on the basis of popularity of a page.

      a) Characters - Currently popular character pages.

      b) Weapons - Currently popular weapon pages.

      c) Franchises - Currently popular Verse pages.

      d) Powers & Abilities - Currently popular Powers & Abilities pages.

      e) Terms - Currently popular Terms pages.

      3) Featured pages - Content will be subject to change once every month, as per required consensus.

      a) Members - Members who are particularly useful to the wiki, aka model members. Contributing productively towards the wiki will see you in the Featured section as well! Members will be added in the Featured section only via community consensus.

      b) Articles - Pages which are well constructed, aka model pages. If you improve the quality of your favourite character's profile, their page might be included in the Featured section as well!

      c) Threads - Threads which are important or noteworthy. Threads will be added in the Featured section only via Admin consensus.

      d) Blog Posts - Blog Posts which are important or noteworthy. Blog Posts will be added in the Featured section only via Admin consensus.

      e) Help - Another highly important section, possibly invaluable to new members. Includes help guides which are often buried too deep to explore directly.

      Wiki Forum Change

      Hello.

      The Forum section has undergone a minor revision.

      First off, the order of the Forum Boards has been rearranged, as per their importance.

      Additionally, as you may have noticed, there is a new forum board called "Featured Discussion". This board is for the discussion of pages listed in the featured section of the wiki.

      As I have already stated, the content listed in the featured section will be revised every month. As such, the threads within that particular board will be unlocked for discussion only at the time of discussion.

      Since this is the first official usage of the Featured Discussion board, content will be decided via Staff consensus alone. Next time onwards however, member consensus will be required for featured members and articles, and member suggestions will be welcome for featured threads and blog posts.

      I would like to ask every person in the community to check out the new forum board. Please also note, the Featured Discussion board is currently under development.

      Wiki Description Change

      Hello, community members.

      Another change (albeit a minor one) I would like to inform you about.

      The wiki description has been edited. For those of you who don't know, the description (or "meta description") of a Wikia community is the text that will be shown on search engines when the main page appears in the results.

      Previous description:

      "VS Battles Wiki is a community site that anyone can contribute to. Discover, share and add your knowledge!"

      ^ IMO, that sounds way too generic. As such, I edited it to:

      "VS Battles Wiki is a site which aims to enlist the powers and abilities of characters across different fictional franchises."

      ^ That sounds far more on point. Unfortunately, there is a 150 characters limit, so the revised summary was very brief.

      I have been informed that it will take a while for the new message to show up on a Google search (around a week).

      Update

      Date: July 24, 2015

      Summary: Changed "enlist" to "index".

      Added "Inactive" tag

      Made a modification which adds a tag "Inactive" beside user handles. This tag appears only for members whose last contribution was over 2 months ago. The tag can help newer members of the community distinguish between the active and inactive members on the community.

      Auto refresh certain pages

      Made a modification which automatically refreshes Recent Changes, Wiki Activity and Contributions page every 60 seconds, without reloading the entire page.

      Simply click on the check box with text "Auto Refresh".

      Wiki Changes Temporary Suspension

      As some of you might know by now, the Wikia network has been hit by a virus which compromised certain wikia and wikia user accounts. The VS Battles wikia was luckily safe. If you feel insecure regardless, now would be a good time to change your user account passwords.

      Additionally, all wiki-wide scripts (both JavaScript and CSS) have been temporarily disabled, which includes all the changes listed on this page.

      The wikia features will resume soon. Until then, kindly remain patient.

      Attack Potency - New Column

      After careful consideration, it was decided that the new format of the Attack Potency table was hard to follow. As such, another column has been added, using conventional terms instead of mathematical ones.

      It would also be easier for newer members to follow, and make the chart more feasible for Calculators.
