At this moment Template:DYKimage/Image Gallery has converted into large capsules (partial images with partial text), with only the first 8 viewable without clicking the "more" button again and again. This Is Wholly Unuseful. This is set with gallery tags with no size commands entered. If no changeback, I will set size commands, but this is still not a useful thing in any case. Users recycling images (like me) want to see the whole image, tourists would like to see captions. What is odd (to me, anyway) is that the general Special:Images collection/dump is as before though it is a page without Edit/History/Move/etc. tags (so can't be examined under the hood) and a somewhat superfluous "add image" button. --Nigel Scribbler sig2 (talk) 01:29, June 14, 2018 (UTC)

EDIT/UPDATE:This is one of the FANDOOM Beta changes that has finally kicked in here. https://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:New_Image_Galleries . I would just prefer to opt out of the Beta test, but I defer to Romartus or a vote to flip the button to opt out.

Also, note the return of the new FANDOOM Message Wall as a button on the front page, something that is intended to replace Talk, apparently. Llwy-ar-lawr got hit with the actual Message Wall for some reason (not me) which wiped her existing Talk and its history while it was up. https://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Message_Wall . Message Wall is actually currently disabled for Uncyc and if we lose Talk history by using it, I hope it is never activated.

It didn't wipe anything. My talk page just got moved to an "archived" page, except actually it was still at the same page name but if you tried to go to "User talk:Llwy-ar-lawr" directly you got taken to the message wall. Confusing but harmless. Hard to get to user talk subpages as well. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 03:51 14 June 2018
I have disabled some more of the options available via the admin dashboard. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 05:30, June 14, 2018 (UTC)

All better now. Blood pressure returning to normal. --Nigel Scribbler sig2 (talk) 18:55, June 16, 2018 (UTC)
