Hi there! I'm Ironwestie. I've been a Wikia contributor since 2012, and I've been an administrator on a few wikis, including this one!

I often run a bot called User:Joke-Explainer 7000 to perform tedious edits.

If you have any questions, especially about our rip pages, please leave a message on my message wall.

Pages Edit

TODO Edit

Articles Edit

  • Portal for Ripping, Music theory, and existing Rips on the wiki.
    • Ripping:
      • Resources for ripping
      • Mashups
      • Melody swaps / melody changes / melody additions
    • Music theory
      • Distinguishing key, adjusting BPM
      • Sample library (would be hosted off-wiki to prevent copyright?)
  • Make List of channel events more modular, with individual pages that either redirect to that page or are their own separate lists. Will make using /event/ parameter easier. -- see Thread:21279
    • Verify that no rip pages link to List of channel events directly, and instead link to other pages.
    • Need to rewrite Template:Events
    • Need to have pages link to their event pages using AWB
    • Need to migrate redirects
  • Standardizing the names of events (some are "day" or "anniversary" while others are "Day" or "Anniversary") and other arbitrary names


Meta Edit

  • Add optimizations for editing:
    • c:dev:PreloadTemplates - adds a section under the "Show changes" area of the source editor
    • Tags to help find specific articles?
  • Overhaul the help pages for new readers and editors
    • Clean up Project:Manual of Style:
      • Playlist categories (add script code to copy from Wikipedia?)
        • Playlist category lists are formatted like so:
*<base name>
**<mix>
**<mix>

EXAMPLE for a playlist page for "game"
Foo (bar) - game
Foo - game
Foo (foo) - game

becomes...

*Foo
**bar
**foo
        • Spell out exactly how ordering of the playlists is supposed to go (we haven't officially decided it yet, however this is a good algorithm):
for each playlist item, starting from the top of the playlist until the end...
   if the item's base name is found in the ordered list
      sort the item into the base name's sublist using its mix (alphabetically)
   else make a new sublist with that base name
(note for sorting sublists: if a "non-mix" rip does not exist, then still add the non-mix entry, but do not add a link)
      • CCC rips: summary, tracklist, transcript, trivia
  • Sort out maintenance cats and make notice templates for them(?)
  • Add feed of latest YouTube uploads (format first, then have bot automatically update it)

Programs Edit

  • Make a YouTube API thing for:
    • List of playlists
    • Uploads
    • Category:Lists of contributions DONE -- merge with bot to auto-update lists of contributions?
    • Playlists (basically lists of contributions but with special search tree traversal) -- INCOMPLETE
    • Release: The nature of the script means that I need to spend a lot more time researching ways to implement it in an accessible way while also protecting my data. Hosting it on the wiki is not an option, however it could be hosted on my website.
  • Script for album releases; track list in windows -> wikitext - DONE (could be optimized a lot better, though)
  • Make a bot / use MediaWiki API (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Creating_a_bot) for:
    • updating playlists
    • maintenance:
      • making sure everything has a proper playlist
      • make sure songs names like "Meet the Flintstones" have quotation marks around them (check if the characters around the brackets in "[[SONG_NAME]]" are spaces. If they aren't, then insert quotation marks there.)
      • rename all Template:Game uses of "image1" and "title1" to "image" and "title", respectively.
