[edit] Again no gadgets

No working gadgets, the tab in Preferences is missing again.--ZooGuard (talk) 12:11, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

They work fine. Nutty Roux (talk) 18:09, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

And again.--ZooGuard (talk) 17:42, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

And they are back. WTF? --ZooGuard (talk) 18:20, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

And again.--ZooGuard (talk) 09:29, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Seem to switch on and off with the weather or the phase of the moon or something. Scream!! (talk) 11:05, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
They are back at the moment. Thank you to whoever fixed it.--ZooGuard (talk) 16:15, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

The weather/phase of the moon is unfavourable again.--ZooGuard (talk) 10:34, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Still no gadgets. Does anyone know what's the personal .js for a "section 0 edit link"?--ZooGuard (talk) 09:56, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
*bump*--ZooGuard (talk) 08:27, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes, having those gadgets again would be awesome. While it may not seem like much of a deal, some of those gadgets are quite useful. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:30, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Somebody do something please!

Been on for a week or so & just vanished today! I miss most the "Navigation Popups" (that's what they're called on WP) that let yo see the details of the last edit on Recent Changes without actually clicking the link. Scream!! (talk) 12:42, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Smileys

What happened to the old "Smileys" toolbar we could have? Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 08:48, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Well? - Is anyone out there? Scream!! (talk) 12:44, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Vandal Bin Controls

I...can't seem to find where the button is for this anymore. Am I missing something super obvious and need a kick in the pants or? Zero (talk - contributions) 13:28, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Do you mean the one called "vandal bin" in the little line of links at the top of the user contributions page? Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 14:32, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
*Presents posterior* Apparently I do need said kick. Zero (talk - contributions) 14:35, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
eeww. Kindly get that thing out of my face. No kicking is merited, nor will be given. I've had enough grey matter leak out into my hair that such lapses are easily forgiven. Keep up the good work, Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 14:43, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Pibot archiving a very old talk page

I've tried to set up Pibot to archive Talk:Irreducible complexity, hoping that it will shove all the pre-2014 content into the archive. Surprisingly, it archived only two sections. Am I wrong believing that Pibot can archive stuff before the first section on a page, and why did it fail to do so in this case? Also, what prevented the rest of the sections from being archived? I thought Pibot can cope with non-UTC timezones in timestamps, and this seems to be at least partially true - both archived sections use timestamps in CDT.--ZooGuard (talk) 17:57, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Does Pi actually do any active running of Pibot? It's a mystery to me - David Gerard (talk) 18:54, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
