Aqua Pets is a very addicting game.It takes a while to get the hang of it.I love the game.It helps meRead more >
I've been unable to edit in a while since my internet has been down lately and I sometimes go to another "hotspot" to get a better signal. I have a ton of pictures and pages to create for the month of Dec, so see ya around. :)Read more >
So Wikia's fluid layout went into effect today and it doesn't seem to have affected our wiki very much. There was a minor layout problem on the main page, but I fixed it.
Bionic Panda Games put through another update to the game, which included some new rods and bait. It also included a new feature, Collections. I'll need to add this as a new field to the Fishbox template, as it appears to be another way that fish can be classified in the game.
Anyway, I've been busy at work (working on a project for my job, which you can see here if you're interested). At home, I've been trying to get Christmas stuff taken care of, so I haven't had time to work on the Aqua Pets Wiki there, either. Unfortunately, it looks like I won't be working much on this…Read more >
I'm leaving myself a little reminder here, to read up on any changes we need to make to the wiki regarding the "Fluid" changes that are coming about in the first week of December. Here is a link to the blog on Community Central, so I don't have to go looking for it again:

Okay, so I've done a ton of file cleanup this week (categorizing, organizing, etc). I've also added a lot of new pages and bulked up some of our old pages with additional content (rather than just marking them as stubs). I did have to restore a user's picture that was deleted, I'm assuming by accident.
Anyway, what all of this brings me to is this: the holiday season is upon us. And I had the bright idea to make a lot of Christmas gifts this year, to help save money. So as we get closer to Christmas, I may be a little more scarce around here, simply because I've got to get moving on making gifts for people.
I will still log in every week, I'm just not sure how much work I'm actually going to be able to get done. So if you need anything, feel…Read more >
Alright, I've been busy adding more individual fish pages. I will continue to plug away at this, though there are hundreds of pages to create and I'm only getting about 2 - 4 pages done per night that I work on the wiki. We'll get there, eventually!
I'm going to take a short break from doing those, though, and get some back end maintenance done. I want to knock out the other two templates I promised Dairyman88 -- the Bait infobox and the Backgrounds infobox.
I'm also considering an infobox and a category for Fish Food, but I'm not sure how I feel about that yet. We'll see. Maybe someone else can weigh in on how they feel?Read more >
So I appear to be having some minor problems with the Fishbox template. Some of the "types" are coming up as "undefined". I've looked all over the code and can't figure out what's up, so I decided I need to do some testing. Therefore, this is going to be my sandbox for testing this template code. Remember, all I am testing is the "type" so all other variables will still come up as the default settings. Here we go:Read more >
I just went through and did some major housekeeping on the back end of the wiki. It's been a while, since I've been focused on putting together templates and doing some actual editing, so things got a little out of hand. I went through last night and tonight, however, and fixed a bunch of broken links, deleted duplicate files, and just did some general maintenance that needed to be done. Things are looking pretty good at this point -- the few glaring problems that I see are problems that I already knew existed and have been working on fixing.
In the meantime, the face of the wiki looks great! With TONS of help from Dairyman88 I've been able to get a lot more pages on the wiki fleshed out. If you haven't already, definitely check out the wor…Read more >
Okay, so I wanted to set up a test for the new template I made: Template:Fishchart. Going to put it here -- just a copy and paste of the chart that Dairyman88 made for the Category:Common Fish page. Here we go. So this is what the table SHOULD look like:
Picture Name Description
And this is what the table looks like, using the current template:Read more >
Funny, it must've seemed like I disappeared again this past week. My in-laws were in town, which meant I wasn't home very much because we were out doing things with them. I kind of expected that I would have time, when I was at home, to work on the wiki, though. Especially since I was on vacation. The funny thing about that, however, is that I couldn't even get on my computer when I was at home! See, my mother-in-law brought her computer with her, but forgot her monitor cable at home. So I let her borrow mine for the week. Unfortunately, that means I was without a computer at all to be able to do any editing. They've gone back home to Chicago, though, so I have my monitor cable back and I am also back to work (which means I have computer a…Read more >
It's been a busy couple of months for me, as we have been doing a lot of Spring Cleaning. Not only does my house look a lot more organized, but I've been doing some cleanup on the wiki as well! Just in case you haven't noticed, here are a few things you might want to check out:
- Main Page Improvements - The most obvious change around here is probably the main page. I've been doing a lot of editing there to bring it more in line with other popular Wikia wikis (links near the top of the page for better SEO, fixing the recent news feed so it actually works, giving Aqua Pets its own page for general game information, featuring help for new editors on the main page itself, etc). While I will continue to make some improvements to the main page, I …
I have been very busy the past few days, reading articles on Community Central and figuring out how I'm going to most efficiently complete some of the projects I need to work on here. So, per the suggestions of the staff over at Community Central, I made myself a sandbox wiki to test things out in. I've already learned quite a bit about what I can and can't do with MediaWiki.
There are so many ideas bubbling in my head, so keep an eye on the main page to stay updated. I'm eventually going to embed my blog on the front page, as a news feed, once I figure out how to limit a blog feed to only display my blog.

Hey guys! I am still alive, though this illness just doesn't seem to want to let go -- I am still having coughing fits every now and again. There is some nasty stuff going around, so please take your vitamin C and stay healthy!
As you might have noticed, I am now an admin for the wiki! After attempting to contact the original wiki creator with no luck, I put in my request to adopt the wiki at Community Central. So now I can do all of the maintenance stuff that was restricted before to get this place in shape. You might have seen some of the recent changes, but in case you were wondering, here's a few of the projects I have been working on:
- Removed Comments: I've removed the ability to add comments to articles. This seemed redundant, since ea…
Hey, not sure if anyone is actually following this wiki other than me. But just in case anyone is, I wanted to apologize for slowing down in my edits.
I've been sick for the past week now and it's gotten progressively worse. Doctor made me take this week off from work due to it, in fact. Anyway, just wanted to put it out there that I will come back to my usual level of activity once I'm feeling better.
In the meantime, feel free to help contribute! I'd love to see this wiki take off and become a great resource for this cute little game. :)
