Example extension vet request[edit source]

  • Extension: EmbedVideo
  • Wiki to be used on: Help Wiki
  • This extension will help with embedding videos on articles.

--Alianin TC 21:44, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

We need this on WildStar as well so we can embed. --Alibot TC 21:45, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Actual requests[edit source]

Please use the example above as your template

FormatNum[edit source]

--Netail TC 00:39, 5 October 2019 (CEST)

We need this on Sea of Thieves so wen can add spaces/commas/dots between thousands in a template for example; {{gold|10000}} -> 10 000 / 10,000 / 10.000 . Used on the Stardew Valley wiki aswell; Template:Price

Add_HTML Meta and Title[edit source]

  • Extension: Add HTML Meta and Title
  • Wiki to be used on: https://minecraft-zh.gamepedia.com
  • Reason: As Chinese Minecraft Wiki is having a decreasing rank on Baidu, the biggest search engine in China, administrators of the wiki would like to use Baidu Search Console to increase the wiki's exposure, which needs a verification by adding <meta name="baidu verification" blabla>, which can't be satisfied the Extension:SEO. By the way, if the verification can be done by adding a file or cname verfication by Gamepedia staff, then it's not necessary to approve this extension request.

PinyinSort[edit source]

  • Extension: PinyinSort
  • Wiki to be used on: https://minecraft-zh.gamepedia.com
  • Reason: Pages in categories are sorted in ASCII order. When it comes to Chinese characters, the order seems to be just random. Using PinyinSort can make the order of the pages more clearly. It is working well on [zh.moegirl.org another big wiki]. I hope all Chinese Gamepedia wikis can install this extension.

FontAwesome[edit source]

  • Extension: FontAwesome
  • Wiki to be used on: esports at least, probably useful in general
  • Reason: FontAwesome is super useful but right now can only be used in pseudo-elements and added via CSS, which leads to a lot of cases of slightly annoying design - everything is already possible to do, but in a lot of cases it ends up being kind of a mess. Other wikis would also probably have a much easier time using FontAwesome icons if it can be done via parser function.
  • Reason #2: They plan to support importing only some icons which would likely be a big performance improvement - link to github issue

VEForAll[edit source]

  • Extension: VEForAll
  • My username: TheSatanicSanta
  • Wiki: theblackoutclub
  • Use case: In-game player interactions (with characters, etc.) provided by the community through PageForms, wiki admins desire to make it easy for all members of the community to add new interactions they have in the game.
  • See also: My talk page on The Blackout Club Wiki

ReplaceSet[edit source]

  • Extension: ReplaceSet
  • Wiki to be used on: Nowhere Prophet
  • Use case: Since #replace doesn't have regular expression functionality and RegexFunctions is limited to 10 calls per page, ReplaceSet may be a useful replacement if it is not considered expensive. Currently, we would like to use it to replace any of 20+ keywords with links to their corresponding articles when they appear on in-game card text, but we can't show more than a couple cards per page before the #rreplace replacements break. We have to use #replace 40+ times per card (23 possible keywords in two text areas) where 2 #rreplace would do the same job in less (and more legible) code. See [1] for example.

#dplreplace is probably able to solve this issue as well.   Logo icon light transparent.png MarkusRost (talk) 20:55, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
