Just wondering if maybe for the next event the front page poll for favourite new girl shouldn't include the Abyssals (or, at least reskin versions). I mention because this looking at the recent one the clear winner is the re-coloured of Cruiser Tsu, and to be presumptious here I doubt that most people actually consider a pre-existing enemy painted a new colour as their fave, and I suspect someone may have repeatedly voted for a laugh.
What's on your mind?
I am Jr Mime, a Fandom Wiki Manager for this community, the lovely Kancolle Wiki.
I am here to help the community, you, for any questions, issues about the wiki, editing, formatting, scripting, etc. I am also a liaison to full-time Fandom staff members.
Feel free to contact me on my talk page for any specific questions, or directly post on this forum thread.
The official clarified that they did not make any DMCA claims. May the administrators forward this message to Famdom?
This month Fandom received a formal DMCA takedown notice from the owners of the Kancolle game regarding thousands of images uploaded on this community. Due to the DMCA law's requirements and stipulations, we are legally bound to comply with this request.
Fandom will pursue a dialogue with the Kancolle group to see if we can reach an agreement that will allow us to again host these images, but we must delete the images expeditiously in the interim.
Starting tomorrow and throughout the rest of the week, I will run a script to delete all images from:
These images are NOT allowed to be reuploaded and I will have to ban those that do.
Around October, a certain staff member who was running the public discord went rogue, doing very bad things, all of which has now been known as the TLBA incident. Although the incident has been resolved, what was known as the Public Wikia Discord was reduced to rubble and ruins. Seasons have passed, cicadas were crying and kuso's were busy sinking their ships, but today, we proudly announce that the Public Wikia Discord has finally been restored to fully functional conditions and will open up once again!
So, what changed?
The first thing we did was get rid of the discord partnership, as the perks did not help us at all and it only caused more trouble than it was worth. As a result, we are able to provide a more relaxed stance on the rules as well as increase the tolerance level. To give an example, images that might have been classified as NSFW under the old guidelines might no longer be banned under the new ones (it's not a porn galore though, mind you).
As part of the restoration, we have assembled a new team of moderators to help us out with this project. Some are familiar, some are newfaces, but they all share the same excitement in wanting to work together with the community in order to create a fun place for us admirals to enjoy. Also, there won't be a second TLBA,
or at least we hope so. :>
Unlike its previous incarnation, this server will start at a much smaller scale. The current server consists of the following:
- Announcement channels to provide you with the latest dev tweets and the announcements the Wikia staff wants to make to the community.
- A lounge for your everyday discussions.
- An art corner, for you know, art.
- A dedicated channel for Wikia related support.
- Channels for providing suggestions or ideas to improve the server/wikia.
As time passes and the server grows though, we will slowly expand and build upon the suggestions the community provides us with in order for us all to feel home here.
If any of the above piqued your interests, don't wait and join right away using the following discord link: https://discord.gg/HT32GFQ
Maybe I am not getting the correct understanding of the editor, but well:
When I try to edit the box (table) in the top-right corner of such a page, it does not show up after clicking "edit".
For example: https://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/Sagiri
I tried to add world 7-1 as a place to drop, but I could not find the position for this data in edit-mode. As if the code for this box is filtered.
Is this a bug? Can it be helped somehow?
I noticed outdated data for a few other shipgirls as well, but I am having the same issue at their pages.
After a spat between the internal disputes within staff leading up to de-linking of KC wikia and KC wikia (public) Discord along with growing distrust between KC wikia members including myself. I want to convey that I am retiring from the scenes as described above, before I take my leave there are a few topics I want to address.
First and foremost is that I thank you all for your cooperation with both myself and the KC wikia operations thus far and for spending your time with me. It has been a long journey and I intend to move onwards with my life.
The topic I want to address most importantly with the collaboration between KC wikia, KC Reddit (Discord) as well as EN KC wiki (Discord). As you all have been aware of the frictions within KC wikia amounted to a growing distrust within staff ranks and that I am to retire from my positions. I shall leave that in the hands of XhacKX (jasperchua99) to maintain the bond between the three English platforms. As some of you may be aware, the re-ignition of the bonds between the three English platforms was not possible without XhacKX's help along with McDerp, to which to these day I am indebited for their continued assistance in making it possible. If in the case of XhacKX being an unfavourable person to contact, you have the following contacts within KC wikia and these are as follows: gk (がか), Mikado (Admiral Mikado), Zel-melon and Kruss.
With regards to the actual details involving the spat with KC wikia members leading up to the de-linking, this is a topic I do not wish to discuss. For more information you are free to consult with whoever you want as I am no longer interested in discussing the internal politics and shall leave that to whoever wants to take on that role. So please take this into consideration as I am about to formally end as being a point of contact for KC wikia related activities.
As an added bonus, and for the last topic I want to address. I leave you with some of the imgur albums I have compiled personally. You are free to take these with a grain of salt however I will leave it as it is. As I am formally retiring, I want to make it clear that I no longer hold liable nor accountable for my activities hereforth with KC wikia and any of the collaboration that KC wikia is associated with.
On a final note to those who have read up to this far. I thank you for once again for having spent your time reading this. With this said and done, I intend to also retire from my duties as an Administrator of KC wikia and will begin a certain sequence of events that are necessary to move on with life. I wish you all the very best of your own goals.
3) 後処理と現時点での考え 英wikiでの連絡、通信や翻訳を担当している人はびいかめ氏から「この協力関係を解消して下さい」とのメッセージを受け取りました。ウィル氏も同様の考えでした。理由は「翻訳に割ける人員がいないこと、また組織を縮小すること」でした。
Formal announcement to (temporarily) discontinue the collaboration with Kensho wikia (ja.kancolle.wikia.com):
First and foremost, I have to apologise with my crap Japanese. Those of you reading only my Japanese version of the announcement, please be aware that I am not using machine translation tools (Google Translate, Bing Translate, etc). I am Crazy teitoku, also known as "@tuxsavvy" on twitter.
1) Background information On August 21st there was a meeting between Kensho wikia members amongst the select few staff members from English Kancolle wikia. The members and their roles are as follows: Representing Kensho wikia:
- biikame (co-chairperson, retired),
- Willlain (co-chairperson, retired),
- Ki_puzzle (co-chairperson, current but retiring),
- yumeji (member of the board?, retired)
Representing English Kancolle wikia:
- jasperchua99 (founder of English KC wikia Discord, content moderator),
- gk (Responsible for English KC wikia operations, sole bureaucrat),
- Admiral Mikado (Interpreter, admin on English KC wikia),
- myself (Crazy teitoku, lesser translator, admin on English KC wikia)
The discussion happened in Discord, mostly in private areas such as group direct messages and private channel.
2) Proposals and visible changes Kensho wikia co-chairpeople along with members of their board members approached us on KC wikia via the Discord server initially with the intention to use English KC wikia's layout as a base to transform their Kensho wikia into a full-fledge wiki (similar to Kouryaku wiki). Starting off with the regular world maps but with intentions to also focus on event maps and other existing assets (such as ship girls, equipment, etc) that English KC wikia has. This is not just a simple affair of copy and pasting English contents onto Kensho wikia as-is but the intention was to translate into Japanese so that Japanese readers can understand the content.
The collaboration was not deemed official as the proposed changes has not been fully made and that there were internal disputes within Kensho wikia as was later revealed in both the private chat on Discord as well as twitter.
A few of the members from both sides has been involved in laying the initial stages on the Kensho wikia but because Early Fall 2018 Event was underway it was difficult to concurrently handle several tasks at once (updating wiki with event information, dealing with the actual event, etc) from both sides. Ultimately Kensho wikia members decided to temporarily halt their translation operation on their side and to deal with internal disputes as a priority before continuing on.
There were several moments of where the communication between the two parties were quiet including the time when Kensho wikia members were to deal with the internal disputes leading up to disbanding what was then the representatives from Kensho wikia's side. On English Kancolle wikia side, not a lot of information was known on what was happening in Kensho wikia's side during those quiet times however there were speculations on what may have happened.
3) Aftermath and final thoughts biikame from Kensho wikia who has been communicating in both Japanese and English with members of private group chat decided to formally announce the discontinuation in the translation project citing the lack of members available along with scaling back of their operations.
What wasn't and hasn't been made clear to this day was exactly what had happened internally during the informal collaboration between the two wikis. At the time there were hype from mostly the English KC platform (consisting of primarily KC Reddit, EN KC wiki and KC wikia) that we were able to be able to work with Japanese and to build a bridge with them considering afterall KC is a Japanese game.
Personally, I was hoping to be able to continue working with members of the Japanese KC side and consider this discontinuation as temporary until more information can be gathered on exactly what had happened. A few members has been wanting to salvage what was then the Kensho community but to my knowledge they are not involved with commenting directly on the now disbanded Kensho wikia's forums. Those of us who still wants to salvage the members are doing so via a more cautious approach that doesn't involve open confrontation and being ignorant on the whole issue.
To this day, I have been keenly wishing that the English KC community could be able to break the ice between the Japanese KC community however it has been very tough despite not being able to communicate in Japanese and not agreeing with some of their policies. I continue to observe their proceedings and wish to not be loud as to announce with my broken Japanese.
The Japanese version of this announcement was proofread by an anonymous proofreader.
So I just found out the Rinkichou trivia I added to Asashio's page just got deleted, so did the Japanese-Taiwanese source dispute about Tsushima's fate and final role, and let's just say having your hard work reverted by the click of a finger isn't necessarily the most enjoyable thing on earth.
Yes, I can imagine that these are probably not important to some, but hey, this is the trivia section. If the most serious shipbuilding scandal in the whole history of the IJN aren't important enough even just to be part of "trivia", I don't think I'm sure what is important enough instead. (The "I am Aoba" trivia I added to Aoba's page survived, though)
Perhaps I should ask the opinions of the moderators here before adding more? I've been thinking about adding, say, Intrepid's nickname in the Japanese players' community (and some other "what-I-think-are-trivia" stuff) for a long time, but after all this I'm not sure if I should do that anymore.
Edit: I just checked some more pages and the scale of this so-called "cleanup" is beyond what I first thought. There are descriptions about the ships' fate and wreck information being deleted, which are very, very basic elements of trivia.
Seriously, I have to ask: just what are the mods' plan for trivia sections? Are you guys planning on keeping it at all?
On June 11th, 2018, we are discontinuing wikia chat from KanColle Wikia in favour of a more superior off-the-shelf solution aptly named Discord. This is in preparation to also potentially discontinue wikia forums for wikia's discussions should that ever happen. You can read more about the wikia discussions here and here.
Unfortunately, in order to satisfy the requirements by wikia in avoiding to use functionalities which requires mediawiki language that both wikia forums and wikia chat uses, wikia chat will be removed from KC wikia on June 18th as it is not possible to bring it in compliance with their requirements neither would it satisfy the requirements on KC wikia.
We understand that this is a drastic step and represents a significant change for those of you who are still using the wikia chat, but we must be in compliance with these new regulation.
For those of you who are familiar with Discord service, we now have a public server in which you can interact with other KC wikia players along with KC wikia staff!
The link to the public server is here (in case you cannot see the Discord link to the right of the Kancolle Wikia interface):
Update: currently, using visual editors may be ok. It is still a good idea to use source editor for pages that use advanced coding (for example, templates), such as event pages.
To anyone planning on editing the wikia, go to your preferences and change the preferred editor to source. Classic rich-text editor is bugged at the moment and using it would only ruin the page layout every time you click edit.
To get some assistance with how to use source editor, you may want to refer to this page.
More technical information will be edited into this OP thread, so stay tuned.
- This issue mainly affects "public namespaces". Examples of these include (but are not limited to):
- You do not need to run the same test for your own comments, user page, talk page or even any page within Sandbox. The bug will be isolated to those areas and are not deemed as critical to anyone else except yourself. However, you will need to disable visual editors and classic rich-text editors when editing public facing pages *especially* the ongoing (as of writing) Winter 2018 Event.
I am fully aware that the debate on the designation for the Kaibokans has long ended. However, I found that the direct USN equivalent is a Patrol Coastal Escort. Hull/ ship designation PCE. Has anyone else come across this designation?
-Roles: Convoy escort, coastal defense, ASW focus
-Speed and propulsion: Diesel engines, speed
Seeing that after the implementation of the October 25 Update or September Ranking Rewards the Wikia has implemented a new template specifically designed for equipment pages, I would like to know how can these be edited, or where to find information regarding the new template.
KC3KAI HAS BEEN FIXED! You can update it manually by enabling Developer mode and force update your Extension. If you have no idea what I just said, follow the steps here: https://github.com/KC3Kai/KC3Kai/wiki/Updating
For those who are in need of information. KC-Reddit (in name only) Discord are a good source that can help provide you with fast but uncertain information: https://discordapp.com/invite/RtSadWM
A lot of you (those who started the event) will notice by now that the viewers, specifically, KC3-Kai, the browser extension that majority of us in this English community used, to put in an easy to understand terms, is screwed.
To elaborate a bit, this is due mainly to the implementation of the new 7-ships fleet and the new formation (the phallic looking one), which all rooted back to API-issue. In order words, imagine you're in charge of delivering a package but the address changed overnight so now you're trying your best to salvage something but not to the optimal result.
As such, convenient tools such as "Battle Predictors" WILL NOT WORK. Additionally, Replays and Records will not act properly. You WILL SEE a bunch of errors showing up. Please understand this.
Furthermore, this also affects us, the editors/staffs who put these up as the flow of information will become slower due to inaccessibility to easily-obtainable data, e.g. routing. As such, editing will be slower to ensure accuracy although trigger-happy mammals can still update information.
As to some other bugs that might show up:
- 0 Resources if you're around hard-cap
- PvP not working properly
These should be fixed soon, hopefully.
Please understand this situation, thank you.
NOTE: Just in case (some people did ask before), we do not have any affiliation with the developers who made Kantai Collection (TM). We are a bunch of volunteered
slaves editors providing information to the English community that is kinda recognized by the JP community.
Attention to all Wikia Editors:
The Scribunto extension in Wikia has broken down as of 4:55AM PST / 7:55 AM EST, resulting in all Lua Modules invocations across the FANDOM, such as EquipmentLink and ShipBattleCardKai to become non-operational.
If you try to use a Lua Module for an Edit, it will show parts of the template without the parsed Lua modules invocations, resulting in the result similar to this:
Please do not make any edits or publications that involves Lua Modules temporarily even if they're necessary and delay such edit until this technical issue is resolved.
Any previous publications/edits made before the time the extension has broken down will be displayed normally, so please do not touch any pages with Lua modules even if needed until the issue is resolved.
Hi Kancolle Wiki
FANDOM is conducting a small test that will compare usage of the Visual Editor with the usage of the classic editor. The purpose of the test is to determine which editor brings more success to newer users. As part of that test, we will be disabling the Visual Editor as the default editor on this community for several months. Users who have the Visual Editor selected in their user preferences will get the classic editor when clicking the main 'Edit' button during the test period. However, VisualEditor will remain available as the secondary editing option on the 'Edit' drop-down menu.
I am letting the community leadership know about this test since some users may be surprised by the altered experience. Giving them a different experience is the point of the test, of course. We request that you refrain from making any community-wide announcement about the test; to get the most accurate results, it's better for users to have no expectation of a change before they encounter it. Obviously this post is public, and it's fine to point individual users here if they inquire about the change.
Please let us know if you have any questions! Thank you.
Greetings, fellow editors
I have been working on some methods to structure a large volume of information and handle navigation of pages clusters (main article and subspaces + partials ecosystem) such as event pages, guides, combat mechanics and of course our front page. Without an index of these pages clusters, it is very difficult for readers find information in the cluster and for our editors to update the pages.
I have been working on the issue for a while and I have reached some interesting results I would like to share. After that, I will invite everyone to take a look at the new front page design in a sandbox and give feedback / suggestions to improve the design before I make it official.
Shiny new toys
What I came up with last December is navigation hubs--a map of a cluster similar to Template:Tutorialportal or Template:Equipmentlist but designed as an individual page instead of a simple table. This allows the application of visual hierarchy to the index without compromising the hierarchy of the page containing the index.
Tiles will be competing against current tabview + collapsible, as well as tabber implementations in various pages clusters. The first implementation of Tile is in Help:Guides and it demonstrates how a navigation hub might look like.
Front page overhaul
All the above elements are designed to be used in the new front page design and future navigation hubs. As the front page is a high traffic area, it is necessary to make a site-wide announcement ahead of time. I myself am very interested in hearing feedback and suggestions from everyone on how to better organize and improve the design.
Feedback I'm looking for in particular are:
- Time until exercise starts (JST)
- What is this?
- This is a training exercise to prepare our new trainees for upcoming KanColle events.
- Who can sign up for this?
- Anyone who're keen on giving back to the community and don't know how are welcome to sign up for this exercise. Training and mentorship will be provided as part of the exercise.
- How does this work?
- In this exercise, we'll attempt to emulate the conditions of a real event by introducing a set of mock-up tweets, fleet composition report sheets, PoiDB dump data, frontline reports and game assets. The trainee team must compile these mock-up data into a complete Event Page, along with any accompanying articles, threads and infrastructures. Information will be introduced to the trainees via designated channels and at a specific order similar to what they can expect from an actual event.
- Why use "exercise" instead of "drill" this time?
We really need to put "This is just an exercise on the wikia, not an actual in-game event." somewhere. In fact people have no idea what a drill means outside of that instrument meant for industrial applications. Next time call it an exercise event if you can.
- So we're changing to KanColle terms this time.
- Where to sign up?
- Registration has closed for this season.
- Meet the trainees
- Team Kanmusu's Destroyer-class trainee Nothis
- Team Kanmusu's Destroyer-class trainee Batoenisan
- Team Kanmusu's Destroyer-class trainee Jasperchua99

- Team Kanmusu's Destroyer-class trainee Xtorex
- Team Kanmusu's Battleship-class trainee Chocolatecravinghobo
- Meet the organizers
- Team Kadokawa's game master Sander van Kampen
- Team Kadokawa's game master & supervisor Kruss
- Team Kadokawa's translator & supervisor Admiral Mikado
- Team Kanmusu's frontline supervisor Stymphalian ID.27
