Need your help

With the Template:Mainpage Box Contents. In case you haven't noticed, there are no boxes that use images from JC4. Just wanted to change that since it doesn't make sense. But the screenshots I take are bad or something, plus the template is locked so. Anonymous1234abc (talk) 00:30, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

I don't know of any other wiki that allows users to change anything on the main page or portal pages. I appreciate you wanting to help out around here but please refrain from changing anything on the main page. Especially by way of replacing images on locked templates. If you have images you believe would look better, post them on that talk page and we can discuss what to change. Kronostradamus (talk) 00:42, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Okeydoke. I apolagize for for being little upset when my edits were reverted cuz it felt a little unfair but I understand now.
About better images: the images I have in mind aren't necessarily better, but they're images from JC4. We need some pictures from all four games (Note that I said four. JC:M is excluded) since this Wiki is about the entire series. See Template talk:Mainpage Box Contents. Anonymous1234abc (talk) 03:49, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Wiki Representative introduction

Hi, Kronostradamus! My name is ReverieCode, and I'm a Wiki Representative from Fandom.

I wanted to let you know I've just been assigned to the Just Cause Wiki, to be your point of contact with Fandom if the wiki ever needs any assistance. I'm taking over from the previous Wiki Manager assigned here, due to some reorganization going on with Fandom's internal teams, which means some of us now cover support for different wikis.

If you experience any technical issues, need a feature/extension enabled, or have any other questions (about templates, wiki design, etc.), feel free to message me. It's great being here! :) ReverieCode 10:39, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

Your input is required

Read the 2021.03.24 entry at the Site maintenance log and see what you think of the rules page. GMRE (talk) 16:58, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Pointing something out...

Just Cause 2 (mobile game) ...in case you want to make a portal for it. ;) GMRE (talk) 19:41, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

You know, I don't think there's quite enough content for a portal page... hahah. Kronostradamus (talk) 04:06, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

Get ready with the background update

The wiki just got a message (at the top of the page) that they've started updating all wikis to the new design that puts the top bar on the left edge and somehow messes up the background. GMRE (talk) 17:18, 2 August 2021 (UTC)

Weirdly, the top bar became bright yellow today. GMRE (talk) 15:28, 3 August 2021 (UTC)

Yep it's coming.
...even if I don't want it to. Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 19:35, 3 August 2021 (UTC)
Can't say I'm surprised, yellow was a odd choice at the top for sure... Will get to work on something. Kronostradamus (talk) 04:23, 5 August 2021 (UTC)
The bright look at the top seems to contrast heavily with the other shades.
At least from my perspective. Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 14:28, 5 August 2021 (UTC)

It'll be less disruptive once they move it to the left. GMRE (talk) 15:01, 5 August 2021 (UTC)

I don't know if that will help. Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 15:07, 5 August 2021 (UTC)
So I've gone ahead and switched over. Adjusted the theme and moved over the CSS. Actually looks about 90% the same now. The bright yellow bar moves to the left and turns grey too. Recommend switching over now to get used to it. Still have to work on the background but it's getting there. Kronostradamus (talk) 04:29, 9 August 2021 (UTC)


How did you manage to upload it in a way that makes it appear normal, instead of as a pointless narrow bar at the top? GMRE (talk) 17:26, 16 August 2021 (UTC)

Is that what the "Background" part of the "common css" is for? GMRE (talk) 17:34, 16 August 2021 (UTC)

Tried that out and that did nothing. GMRE (talk) 13:32, 17 August 2021 (UTC)

Not sure if it's intentional, but...

The new update has been released for a couple weeks now, but apparently entering dark mode on any article changes the title to all CAPS (at least for me.)

The only article unaffected by this is PAN MILSAT, which is already in full CAPS.

Any idea about this? Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 03:11, 7 September 2021 (UTC)

Looks like I made a booboo when trying to customize some stuff. Will remove that and figure it out later. Kronostradamus (talk) 03:37, 11 September 2021 (UTC)

The background at discussions is broken

For some reason there's some kind of a black overlay, which makes most buttons/links at the top of the page invisible. GMRE (talk) 10:24, 24 October 2021 (UTC)

I will look into this. Kronostradamus (talk) 02:36, 29 October 2021 (UTC)
Update: This has been resolved after removing the original workaround for a fullsize image. Fandom has since reenabled the option so everything should be fine now. Kronostradamus (talk) 00:41, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

I added a christmas background

Feel free to improve any time. I did it in Paint in under 10 minutes (includes time spent looking for the right pictures). GMRE (talk) 14:11, 24 December 2021 (UTC)

I know the quality is as comical as it usually is, but as usual it's a last minute update. GMRE (talk) 00:18, 25 December 2021 (UTC)

For some reason I can't see it using the dark mode (not an extension, its a theme built into Fandom). AnOnYmOuS1234aBc ('Sup?) 01:36, 25 December 2021 (UTC)
I've gone ahead and added the background for the dark theme, thanks for letting me know. I missed the Christmas background but I'm sure it was a work of art. Kronostradamus (talk) 20:03, 15 January 2022 (UTC)
You can still see it at File:Site-background-light when you scroll down to file history. GMRE (talk) 23:03, 15 January 2022 (UTC)
It was everything I expected and more. Kronostradamus (talk) 21:15, 16 January 2022 (UTC)

Some weird tables

Do you know how come the tables on this page are nearly unreadable? Grey background and some text is white. I can't see the text color being defined on the table code. Only the table type is defined as wiki sortable, or something like that. GMRE (talk) 15:42, 25 May 2022 (UTC)

Not sure what's up with that, maybe the MediaWiki migration messed something up. I'll look into it and see if I can fix it. Kronostradamus (talk) 16:13, 25 May 2022 (UTC)
I went ahead and changed them from wikitable to jctable, jctable is what almost every other table on our wiki uses. The wikitable sortable just means it was a non-skinned table that can be arranged with the arrows. They're all now jctable sortable or jctable. I also changed the color of the default table to something more legible. Kronostradamus (talk) 16:30, 25 May 2022 (UTC)
