Importing eroge wikis from scratchpad

Hey, you're the admin who imported that old VH wiki from scratchpad, right? Would be okay to import the RyonaRPG scratchpad wiki as well at some point? No rush or anything (even the VH scratchpad is still up), but since Wikia seems to be on a crusade against eroge wikis, and that's pretty much the only source of info on RyonaRPG... - Loliturma (talk) 11:52, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Sure, we welcome all eroge wiki's and we have great support from the anime-sharing guys in the future! Let me know if you need assistance. We may be able to help you out with the getting images out from Wikia. Read/participate in the wiki discussion at AS. Inquisitor (talk) 12:25, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
As an user I can't use Special:Import, so I'm going to need an admin for that. All of the scratchpad pages/files should be in RyonaRPG category, so all that needs to be done is firing up scratchpad Special:Export, including pages from that category, including full history and templates, saving as file and then importing it here. For the most part, RyonaRPG is very similar to VH - All pages in the scratchpad are named RyonaRPG/subpage, both are open RM2K projects so there isn't a company to be listed, and so on. I don't see any need for immediate structure changes. I'm most likely going to be doing some work on the ryonarpg pages, so I can handle misc tasks such as renaming images as per Help:Uploading#Game_acronyms and moving to your {{hgame}} template once you get those sorted out. - Loliturma (talk) 13:20, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
The images are a little tricky because Wikia can't help us with those. Would you be ok with doing those manually? Inquisitor (talk) 22:44, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
You sure? The images are categorized so they should be included in category:RyonaRPG export. But I wouldn't mind uploading them manually. -Loliturma (talk) 01:28, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
The export function generates a XML file with page text only. I'll check if I can hack a quick perl script to fetch, rename and upload the images. --hmoeller [ Talk - Contribs ] 07:35, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
(Edit) 60 Images were Imported, see Category:RyonaRPG I have prefixed them with "RyonaRPG_" so imported pages need to be changed accordingly. --hmoeller [ Talk - Contribs ] 14:38, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
Excellent. I will import the wiki right away. Inquisitor (talk) 15:20, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
It failed with a timeout importing with all revisions, but the current revision only worked. There are some of the issues previously mentioned with the nested structure evident. Inquisitor (talk) 15:46, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
If you are talking about the "/Subpagename/" links not working, that's because subpages are not enabled yet on this wiki. I just tested the same notation on my test wiki and those links do work. --hmoeller [ Talk - Contribs ] 16:06, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
I see. I have explained this to Checkmate and he will look into it. Inquisitor (talk) 17:02, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

(reset Indent) Excellent! I'll get working on it asap. I will keep the ryonarpg menu template for now, but will restructure it to better match games that use template:hgame - Loliturma (talk) 02:52, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

I don't think that RyonaRPG can use {{hgame}}. Same is with VH. This may change if we get ParserFunctions, but for now RyonaRPG and VH should keep their respective templates. --hmoeller [ Talk - Contribs ] 06:56, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

I just noticed that the ryonarpg wiki has some imagemaps (see [1], compare [2]) that would be cumbersome to reproduce with other methods and Extension:ImageMap is disabled. I don't know who the site admin around here is, but it would be great if he/she could enable imagemaps, check mediawiki Extension:ImageMap#Setup. - Loliturma (talk) 04:47, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

I have enabled the ImageMap extension. Checkmate will get back to us on the subpages matter soon. Inquisitor (talk) 06:10, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
I have now enabled subpages. Let me know if it works as intended. Inquisitor (talk) 12:57, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Both subpages and parserfunctions seem to work perfectly. Hmoeller fixed displaytitle for the hgame template and I did the two subwikis. I don't know if you're planning to use multiple subpage levels for other games, but VH already has multiple levels of subpages, so I used Mainpage → Sub1 → Sub2 → Sub3 for displaytitle instead of the Mainpage: Subpage used on {{hgame}}. - Loliturma (talk) 16:50, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Great news. I hope that you guys feel at home here. We take this data very serious and will do what we can to keep it up or find an alternative host. Please remove the talk template if you think your question was answered, thanks. Inquisitor (talk) 14:20, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
