StatusEdit

There is no status. If you are here because some guy in IRC pissed you off, or you are protesting a block, please consider that the universe does not revolve around you.

DistributeapediaEdit

Pretty much everything I wanted to do weith this will be handled in time with the electronic distribution of the print version ... and my time ran out, so the only part remaining that I'd like to do is a lightweight on demand linkbot. Again, time permitting.

Review and consensusEdit

Use these resources to get a community consensus on an article:

  1. Peer review (WP:PR)- currently underutilized but still very useful
  2. WikiProject Fact and Reference Check (WP:FACT) - it needs a certain level of correctness
  3. Forum for Encyclopedic Standards (WP:FES)- it needs to be an encyclopedia article
  4. Featured article candidates (WP:FAC)- which allows articles to become featured (WP:FA)- or that they are the best articles on Wikipedia.

Dev workflowEdit

The core mediawiki devs generally use test machines at home for anything substantial. I'm usually working on scripts related to bulk batch jobs and I do that directly on the main production servers, though sometimes there's enough bulk editing that I do that at home because I have nicer tools there. Any of us with root server access can at times directly patch the production Mediawiki source code on the live site to deal with a problem. We can use a test wiki and/or confine changes to the code to specific servers when we need an isolated test setup. Similarly, for new release rollout, that is set to affect a gradually increasing number of projects as it's rolled out, not all at once. I expect that everyone uses SSH and SCP to copy things back and forth - SSH (Putty on Windows) is mandatory for access to the servers, for security reasons. We simply don't connect without it unless it's completely dead on all servers we can use to get in. And even then we'd likely want to connect via an SSH shell to the console server to get to a plain login prompt via it. Jamesday 02:52, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)

If/Then/ElseEdit

Oops, I don't think I made myself clear. I was looking for conditional templates that worked in wikipedia. Ones that tested something and output something if it was one thing and something different if it was something else, all within wikipedia. (This has nothing to do with botting and editing) All evaluation occurs as the page is created--SomeStranger (T | C) 03:28, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Nevermind, I added my own to the wiki. They work as follows:
{{if|{{ifeq|dog|dog}}|It's equal|It's not}}
{{if|{{ifeq|cat|dog}}|It's equal|It's not}}

See =)

Image:970 WFLA LOGO SUV.jpgEdit

Since this is not directly an image of the logo, but a photo taken by you, there's no need to tag it as fair use, you can instead release it under a different (free) license. See image copyright tags for image creators or ask me on my talk page if you need help. --Fritz S. (Talk) 12:33, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Yes, CC's Share Alike license is perfect. --Fritz S. (Talk) 14:28, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

thanks!Edit

Hi, thanks for answering my call for help. I'm still not sure what the problem is, so I can't really be sure what I'm looking for in a "template". Can you give me another clue? Thanks again =D --HiTrish 06:38, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

The Tours page, on my browser, is blank except for the bar on the right of the page where the stats live. At least on my browser, I must scroll down to the map, Location within France, to begin reading the text. Thanks. --HiTrish 03:16, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

The idea is for a new Wikimedia project that I would help to undertake.

And I simply need help as to who to ask about this... GregMinton

Nope, none of those are what I'm talking about. I'm talking about actual scores of music...like a public domain score of Beethoven's 7th, for instance. GregMinton 03:03, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for the help. I updated the page on a temporary page - why is the copyright page still live? The directions do not show what is needed. I have ensured that all information is owned by us and that the page is not an advertisement. Are there other issues?

Old IfD logsEdit

Why should these be deleted after you blanked them? Maybe we should keep them as logs of old discussions. Kusma (討論) 00:09, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

I tried to start a discussion at WP:AN about what should be done and whether the logs that were deleted should be undeleted. Kusma (討論) 00:26, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
I have taken the discussion to the IfD talk page. Kusma (討論) 01:01, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Vincent Thomas Bridge Fair Use.jpg)Edit

Thanks for uploading Image:Vincent Thomas Bridge Fair Use.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. —Wknight94 (talk) 03:37, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Non-free use disputed for Image:Dreft products.pngEdit

  This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Dreft products.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read carefully the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content and then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 03:43, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Trump Tower (Tampa)Edit

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article Trump Tower (Tampa), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy).

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
