    Vandal

    February 11, 2012 by Gourleyo

    We have had a vandal known as Internet Gentlemen who has raided the wiki. He has put up swear words which could give us a bad reputation. This is REALLY NOT ON at the Ferry Wiki so if you come across this again, feel free to report it!

    Ferry Christmas!

    December 10, 2011 by Gourleyo

    OK, I know that it is 15 days until Christmas, but I just wanted to say that I still wish you a Ferry Christmas! Our logo seems to be a bit funny right now, but closer to Christmas we will get it all sorted. Good Luck!

    November 27, 2011 by Gourleyo

    You should notice we have upgraded to the new Wikia navigation. Since our logo is smaller than the reccomended size we gave it a central algin to fit a good look. Good luck! Gourleyo|Talk|Contributions 15:20, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

    Hello people! I just find that using the Rich Text editor can easily mess things up. That's why I was wondering if users could switch to Source mode in their prefrences and logged out ones to click the Source tab. This is still up to you. Good luck!

    Update: 30.10.11

    October 30, 2011 by Gourleyo

    Hello, I just wanted to inform you that over the next few days this wiki will be improving some of it's MediaWiki pages. One of the changes will be for Photos to be refered to as Images as photos implies that it's all real life. Half our images are Wiki related for Behind the Scenes stuff so at The Ferry Wiki we believe that they should be known as images. Other adjustments will be stuff like improved Missing article and Protection log pages. Also we're going to be changing the Move part to be called Sail. Further information will be posted in the coming days.

    UPDATE: The Sail thing is now active and some more changes have been made to the interface. I don't think a standard user would notice much but there are some.

    Good luck! Gourleyo|Talk|Contribu…

    Holiday themed logos

    October 26, 2011 by Gourleyo

    You know our main logo which is the writing on water, well for a limited time only we'll be having some holiday logos. Currently we have our halloween one on but Erlopez has also made a christmas one and I've shrunk it down so it appears to fit the main one. For next year's logos as Wikia are changing the navigation bar we'll need a bigger logo for when it goes sitewide. All I need to do is center this into an orange background of the same colour.

    New navigation

    October 7, 2011 by Gourleyo

    Hello people, today we added Wikia's new naigation. This does add more links but I have had to reshape the logo to fit the new look well. This will be temporary until Erlopez re does it properly but our official logo is still as it was.

    UPDATE: We've decided to disable it for the time being. You'll be alerted when it's put back up. Good luck!

    New Rules

    October 1, 2011 by Erlopez

    After the unusual occurences of last week, where a Wikia user uploaded unrelated photos onto the wiki, the Ferry Wiki has a new set of published rules. Can all users take some time to read them, to ensure a pleasant editing atmosphere. Thanks.

    Taking pictures in port

    September 30, 2011 by Erlopez

    To all users who take or will take their own photos, please be careful. I was coming back from Ireland, and as we came out of the ferry, I was playing on my iPod touch. Next thing I know, we are stopped by customs in Pembroke Dock and I am told to put away my "camera". It wasn't even on the camera, and I understandibly went beserk! But as a warning to everyone taking their own pictures, please be extremely careful when taking photos in port, especially Pembroke Dock. You may get stopped.

    New visitors!

    September 26, 2011 by Gourleyo

    Since yesterday's spotlight launched we have been getting lots of visitors responding to the polls. Most of these are currently anonymous however in the next 2 weeks we are hoping to get visitors to join us. That way we will be even better!

    In other news, the wiki has decided to launch it's own newsletter. This means that each month a PDF file will be imported to the wiki for people to read it. This will be dealt with by Gourleyo, so leave comments on his talk page to suggest some ideas. These will not appear in the first issue but in the next few your ideas may be intergrated. What do you think?

    Dissapointing moments

    September 19, 2011 by Gourleyo

    Once I was on the P&O Express. The boat is clean and quite fast but there is one thing which put me off - Food. Just the lack of stuff on the menu was the problem. Seeming that the crossing only takes the time a Red Funnel boat takes they have a bunch of places, all with a bad menu. You cannot even get chips! I felt quite dissapointed when I heard this and the only thing they had which I could eat was a cold packet of pasta miked with pesto, and I like pasta but not this one. This one tasted like somebody had been sick on it and made the vomit invisible. Fish and chips is a popular dish on a ferry. You could probably get chips on a cargo one! I had 1 or 2 gulps of pasta, got down my swallowing pepsi which I remember was not pleasent. Then …

    Multilingual Ferries

    September 11, 2011 by Gourleyo

    Throughout the world there are more users than just English speakers who enjoy writing about stuff. This is why I am thinking of some wikis to do with ferries in other languages. The languages I was thinking of would be Deutsch(German), Espanol(Spain) and Francais(France). I will request if Erlopez could create these (I have recently since Wikia relaunched with this new skin not been able to create new wikis). Also, I think this wiki could deserve having a Fanon Wiki where users can create their own company and create boats for that company. For these wikis in other languages we should put them up for adoption to a user who actually speaks that language. Good luck! Gourleyo Visit my talk! 09:51, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

    New Main Page and Blog!

    September 10, 2011 by Gourleyo

    Today the home page of The Ferry Wiki was altered to a new, nicer look. The page may seem harder to customise than the previous one and I would advise that unless you have a reason to edit it like to update the featured article to try not to.

    In other news... The UK may get a hurricane tomorrow or Monday. We will not die but be aware! Gourleyo Visit my talk! 10:03, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

    Clearboat

    September 5, 2011 by Gourleyo

    We are thanking Erlopez for making Clearboat a great place by uploading lots of photos! Also Erlopez has requested Spotlight but until now they refused as we hade to many stubs. Now hardly any pages on this wiki are. 2 inches tall plus 1 photo or more will be fine without being a stub. Now, all we need to do is wait for a reply...

    The Ferry Wiki has undergone some changes. I have made chat available and I have also changed the wiki editor format. What do you think guys? Let me know of the pros and cons! I have also heard that the user page format will be changed, but I don't know when that will happen.

    A guide to padlocks

    July 3, 2011 by Gourleyo

    I have an idea for this wiki so that logged in users can see which pages are protected so if there is vandilism they can tell admins what the edit restrictions are. These will be by having small padlocks of different colours representing protection levels.



    This means that only admins can edit these pages.
    This means that only users can edit these pages.
    These locks mean that anyone apart from blocked users can edit the pages.
    This means that only admins can move pages.

    This means that only admins can upload images to the pages.


    I hope you like my ideas. All registered users can upload the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th one whilst only admins can upload the 1st one.

    Insert this text to the top of the pages.

    Ferry Plan Fun

    May 23, 2011 by Gourleyo

    Hello, what I thought I should do to make this wiki a better place is to start a brand new project where you can browse the accommodation plan for some ferries. There are a few things I want to note about this.

    • These will not be available for all articles so only about 5% will have this feature.
    • These plans will also only be for ferries that the person has been on so they know how the plan looks.

    Anyway, that's all for now. A status blog post on this will be posted this Saturday.
