This script is for PERSONAL use only!
You are free to install this script for yourself, but it is not allowed to be used wiki-wide (e.g., in MediaWiki:Common.js or MediaWiki:Wikia.js), as it would violate FANDOM's Terms of Use.
(See the customization policy)

FasterBanModule replaces the chat ban module, but loads quicker with more times added.


To install this script add the following to your global.js on Community Central:

importArticles( {
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        // ...
        // ...
} );

Default placeholder

The user can optionally set the default placeholder ban reason by placing this config above the import:

fasterBanReason = "Disruption-only account";

Note: Due to the nature of chat JavaScript, loading it may be tedious for personal use. You may have to use an extension such as GreaseMonkey to get it to load every time you enter chat. Thus, the above installation may not work.

importArticles — Best Practices for installing JavaScript on FANDOM

The importArticles statement is designed to combine multiple HTTP requests into a single data transfer, allowing multiple scripts to load and execute faster. If you've been installing several different scripts, your JavaScript file has probably accumulated unnecessary import statements. Click "Expand" to learn how to efficiently batch import scripts to speed up performance and make your code look cleaner. One other approach is by using the MediaWiki:ImportJS.

If your JavaScript file has several lines of code that say importScript, importScriptPage, or importArticles, you may be able to combine them! By batch importing a collection of scripts with a single import, your JavaScript code will load faster and look cleaner. Consider the example below. On the left is an example of what your JavaScript file might currently look like. On the right is how you could improve that code.

Multiple imports — messy and slow One import — clean and efficient
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');
importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
  type: 'script',
  articles: [

Note: In this example, pay close attention to the placement of commas and other punctuation. For people who aren't familiar with programming (and even those who are!), a common mistake when writing code is to accidentally delete, forget, or misplace critical symbols like commas or quotation marks. This can cause a syntax error that breaks the code. Carefully follow the convention shown here when using importArticles.

But there's much more to importArticles than just this! For more examples and advanced usage, see the help page at Help:Including additional JavaScript and CSS.
