You mean the titles ending in ...? Only two so far, don't think it warrants a filter yet
Is there a threshold you would like in the future so you don't have to deal with orange boxes?
Eh? (I dunno if the link works, can't connect to RWW atm.) Just for the record, I'm kidding around. I don't mind Brxbrx, I just like winding him up. And I was drunk last night when I did that.
Hello Nx. I am very very keen to be Cooped. Indeed, that is my sole reason for being on this website, is to be cooped. You complain my case is not serious. Can you suggest what I need to do to make my case serious? Any pointers to the kinds of behaviors I should engage in to become the subject of a "serious" Chicken Coop case? Am I on the right track? If not, could you kindly direct me in the correct direction?
I named myself after my hero, Mr 86.4, His Supreme Imperial Lordship Marcus Cicero the Great. My aim is to be a bigger troll than he ever has been!
Since they want to get under 'your' (collectivly as rwians) skin, why not play with them. Why worry who is saying what, and who is real. Hell, highlight the childishness they are. Say "look we are doing such a good job at actually running this place (which collectively, i think we are, as much as i disagree with things), that they are throwing a temper tantrum. How cute! Want 10 minutes of riot? Go visit their site".
I'm quite serious. If you play with them, they can't stand it. Cause they want you mad, not laughing at them. :-)
And don't worry who is saying what. If people are 5, they are 5. Trust me, no one with any rationality in this world will take them seriously, but they will get quite a laugh out of making an entire wiki devoted to "making fun of Rational Wiki" and nothing else. Even RW didn't start out "just to make fun of' CP, but to actually provide real counter, correct info. this game of MC's is ... well, stupidity at it's finest. Highlight that. Make a whole page for them. "See Children. See Children Pout. Pout, children, Pout".
If it weren't for legal issues, I'd be tempted to try to turn it into a living advertisement for McDonald's.
That's pretty much what I've been doing. The only issue is Human and his behavior... but that'll be settled in the election booth I think.
I just find it a riot. I can't believe you/we? got under one person's skin enough that they made a wiki.
it amuses me to no end, to have that much control over another human's life. Sadly, some people named after "building materials" around here have that power over me. ahhh... life.
I'll reinstall the bot this afternoon, IG-72 needs some legit work to do. For once.
Too good! So good, it's McDouble good.
True enough on both points. I just worried about haste which sometimes happens around here. I'm writing here, just to keep some traffic down. Nite nite!
Is there any reason why this edit doesn't appear in Recent Changes?
Probably several. That said, taking stuff out of RC makes it hard for folks to see what goes on.
Rolling back as bot is a hidden feature that you can access by adding &bot=1 to the url manually, or by using my script. (And no, it's not my doing, it's part of MediaWiki and it's given to sysops by default). The reason I used botrollback is that MC wants attention, so I'm denying him that by hiding his edits from RC.
A filter that matches a part of MC's essay and prevents non-autoconfirmed users from posting it. It's not enabled. If MC persists I'm going to propose enabling the filter, though by the time the week-long vote ends it'll probably be obsolete anyway.
It's hidden from public view so that MC doesn't know which part it matches.
That is actually quite awesome, in it's way. But considering the free time that our resident basement dweller has, he'll probably try to post multiple sections of it to deduce which part is being matched. It will take a while, but as I said, considering the free time that our resident basement dweller has...
Have a look at every other account that's signed up with a series of letters and numbers lately. It's a spambot.
Hello, Nx! Can you correct interwikies to Russian by giving them an ability to shift left and bottom onto section "in another languages"? By the way, can I ask you, why have you changed interwiki to Russian from "ru:" to "rurw:"?
I changed it because ru: appears in the bottom left in the "In other languages" box. However, this only happens on article pages. On talk pages ru: and rurw: are the same. On article pages rurw: is a normal interwiki link like wp: that stays in the text.
"I changed it because ru: appears in the bottom left" -Yes it did! And I consider it as a good thing! Why did you disable this feature?
I didn't. ru: appears in the bottom left. rurw: can be used if you want it to stay in the text.
If that's really you signed up over there, you might reconsider. Saying you're from RW is doing nothing but earning you a permaban. Not to self-promote, but Ameriwiki is open... Or edit CP and hide your identity live everybody else. Just sayin'
You never asked me about that. You never mentioned anything to me about your concerns that, to quote you, it "doesn't look like a pattern? Take a look at the block log." Your very first move was to promote me and not even tell me that you had done so with a note or something.
Like I've said, you're obviously not very good at your job.
Second interesting thing. My blocking of Brx pissed off so many people that I had to take myself to the Coop. And the only person who seems to have an opinion about my blocking of Brx in the relevant thread is Brx. So obviously, there was no particular clamor asking a mod to do something about my behavior. Again, you're really not very good at being a moderator.
Wow. You really put a lot of effort into dealing with the situation. One note a month ago. Whenever do you find the time to sleep?
Perhaps you should kindly reverse your action as you know full well you have authority to do so. I have to go bed my wife so I'll check back again in the morning.
What I am doing is letting it run for as long as possible to get bugs worked out - things like LX moving his post one line, Markedc's incorrect signature, page redirect exceptions, etc.
I used some of your code (specifically the comrephendDiff function and various regex tests), but as an exercise I wrote a mostly new script. It has worked 80-85% of the time so far, the failures being on signing too zealously, not on failing to see unsigned comments. I can send you the program if you'd like, though I'd want to clean it up first.
Don't take my comment seriously, my code probably would've done the same thing... it would probably be a good idea to exclude anything that's ^<[^>]*> $
Anyway, how does it handle edit conflicts?
It should just go back and reevaluate the page, though it hasn't happened yet so this has yet to be tested.
make the bot wait for a keystroke before saving, edit the page... that's what I did.
Could you, with your infinite technical wisdom, sort out a little problem?
So you know that junior high-like essay I posted as an example of an essay rating system? How would I go about indenting each paragraph like on an actual essay? I tried spaces, I tried colons, I tried using nowiki, but all to no avail. Any suggestions on how I could do that? It'd make the thing more readable (although I'm considering asking for its deletion since, yet again, nobody got my point and it'll just be perceived as attention whoring on my part- so this would be for future wiki endeavours that require indented paragraphs). Thanks, Nx. You make this wiki run.
Why not specify image size? The first one is better a little smaller than the default thumbnail.
Because what looks good on your monitor may not look good on someone else's. Or what's large enough for your eyesight may not be large enough for someone else's. That's why you can change the thumbnail size in preferences. If you must change the size of an image, use upright to scale relative to the user's preferred thumbnail size.
