We don't block people on welcoming them. I wish we could, but no, that's just silly :) ArmondikoVpathetic 14:23, 16 February 2009 (EST)

I've just made you a sysop. Don't let me down. (joking). There's some additional guidelines here. WēāŝēīōīďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 17:21, 16 February 2009 (EST)

Greetings, Ipatrol, and welcome to the well-to-do xylene! Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 23:25, 18 February 2009 (EST)

Common sense[edit]

As I said at the Saloon bar, we don't ban accounts permanently. It goes for sockpuppets too. This list shows every block in place at any given time. As you can see, it's made up entirely of the IP addresses of known users who choose to have their home IPs blocked as a reminder to log in before editing. That's the best way to keep it. Any user accounts should only be blocked for short periods. If we end up with a long list of blocked accounts, it makes us look like we habitually ban editors, which we don't, & if they're just users' own sockpuppets, there's no reason for it in the first place.

There's a lot of things we do a bit (or a lot) differently than most wikis. And most of them relate to the extra buttons sysops have. Hang around more, you'll get it eventually. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:00, 17 February 2009 (EST)
Ipatrol, please refrain from telling people to leave the site. You are contradicting the main page's invitation: "We welcome contributors, and encourage those who disagree with us to register and engage in constructive dialogue." ħumanUser talk:Human 23:26, 18 February 2009 (EST)


I'm happy to do some delving into the code if you would like some help, although obviously I don;t want to interfere if you have it covered.

One thing I have noticed is that the Intercom appears to interfere with popups as well, although I'd need to do more checking to be sure. Worm (t | c) 07:03, 25 February 2009 (EST)

I fixed all the issues I could find. You might want to list the script here (feel free to add a new section and describe some of the parameters) -- Nx talk 06:35, 1 March 2009 (EST)


Thanks for the warning, I was AFK unfortunately. I've made you an admin and a crat. --  Nx/talk  05:25, 21 April 2009 (EDT)

System messages[edit]

I like some of the stuff your doing, but please, test it (I had to remove the redirect:no from 1modevto2 because it didn't work and screwed up the log) and don't overdo the wording. It might also be a good idea to bring this up on the Saloon bar so people can comment. -- Nx / talk 06:42, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
