The TTSCpedia:FAQ for members coming from the old TTS Wiki

From The TTSCpedia

If you are coming from the old TTS Wiki (on FANDOM/Wikia), you might have some questions about what's changed. We have written this page to hopefully answer those questions you may have.

General features

Question Answer
Where's the blog stuff? The blog stuff cannot be brought over for technical reasons, but you can access the new blog here.
Does the TTSCpedia have forums? No, the TTSCpedia does not have any forums. The old Wiki's forums were rarely used, so we didn't add it here either.
Does this site serve annoying ads like the old Wiki? No, not at all! As of writing this page; we do not serve any ads, period.
How do I navigate on the new Wiki? See Navigation if you haven't used Wikipedia before.
Why does the user interface look completely different? FANDOM uses their own "Oasis" skin which only works on their particular version of MediaWiki (the software used to power most wikis these days). As such, it can't be brought over to the TTSCpedia. We crafted a new skin based off of the Nimbus skin because of that, which is the skin you see by default. There's also a dark themed skin named Michigan, which can be enabled by going to your settings and changing your skin to "Michigan (Alpha)".
Hey! _____ doesn't work/is buggy! You should check to see if someone else has already talked about it in the The TTSCpedia:Tech Support first. If not, feel free to post about it there.


Question Answer
Can I use my FANDOM credentials here? No. You will need to sign up for a completely new account, since FANDOM accounts cannot be linked to your TTSCpedia account.
Is it possible to connect my social media accounts? Currently there is no way to connect your TTSCpedia account to social media. However, this may change in the future.
Is it possible to use 2FA on my account? Yes! When you're logged in, go to your Preferences, and click on "Enable 2FA". You'll be prompted to set up your 2FA app accordingly.


Question Answer
Why don't all templates have their fields available in the visual editor? Simply put, it's due to lack of TemplateData of some of the templates. For those templates, you'll need to consult the documentation of the template, if any exists yet.
Can I use the same templates as on the old Wiki? Mostly. However, there are several differences which will get documented soon.
What happened to the editor? Because we moved to a new host, the editor on Wikia needed a replacement as its editor is a modified version of VisualEditor, so we installed the normal version of VisualEditor. The user interface should basically remain the same.
