Technical question[edit]

When we switch to the vector skin, then, would we also have to change our user extensions from monobook (For example: User:someasshole/monobook.css) accordingly? Punky Your mental puke relief 02:41, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes. -- Nx / talk 02:58, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Autosign bot[edit]

I've just noticed a very tricky issue with the bot: After LArron made - and signed - a comment, ey went back and revised it, but added a line. NxBot signed the line that was added to the original comment. Blue (is useful) 18:57, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I know about that, I'm going to make it check under the added line to see if there's a sig belonging to the user. -- Nx / talk 20:58, 13 November 2010 (UTC)


I know you're probably super fucking busy today, but when you get a chance, could you explain why this doesn't work? Occasionaluse (talk) 20:29, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Because of the z-index:-1 bit. The documentation is here, btw. -- Nx / talk 20:37, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
And it looks like what worked on monobook doesn't work on vector. -- Nx / talk 20:42, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

I know you probably won't see this until tomorrow...[edit]

Nom nom nom

...but yesterday I think we were all impressed with how smoothly and efficiently the server move/MW upgrade went. Excellent preparation and implementation! I didn't even have time to make barnstars for you and Trent, but have an AK-47 Drive by.gif and some goat pilaf on me.

PS, the smileys section appears to be borken ;) ħumanUser talk:Human 23:55, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Mmmm, goat pilaf... -- Nx / talk 00:07, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing the invaluable smiley box! ħumanUser talk:Human 00:56, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
No problem. -- Nx / talk 00:59, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations, you can edit a wiki. - π 00:14, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Indeed I can. But can I haz orange box? (talk) 00:20, 15 November 2010 (UTC)


Not readily available on the edit page, or are they? 13:01, 15 November 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast

Smileylist gadget works for me, smileybox is probably not compatible with new toolbar, haven't tested. -- Nx / talk 15:56, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Active Users[edit]

It is nice to have this new feature, the Special:ActiveUsers. But the text at Special:Statistics is wrong, it reads

(Users who have performed an action in the last 91 days)

Clearly, the number of the active users (175) is still the number of users who have performed an action in the last 7 days. Could the text be changed?

Thanks, larronsicut fur in nocte 14:00, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

I don't think the text itself contains the number, rather it's taken from the setting, but I'll check it out when I get home. -- Nx / talk 15:58, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
I assume that the text uses the wrong parameter: 91 sounds like the maximal available number of days. BTW, cp:Special:Statistics shows the same error. larronsicut fur in nocte 16:01, 15 November 2010 (UTC)


Fix this. -- Nx / talk 11:58, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

And this -- Nx / talk 12:13, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
While you're at it, I'm having trouble using page.put() in pwb again. This error is all I've been getting (I tried as well as my own scripts):
Updating page [[Kent Hovind]] via API
Error downloading data: No JSON object could be decoded
Request en:/wiki/api.php?
Retrying in 1 minutes...
This started happening after the switch. Any halp would be appreciated :) Blue (is useful) 05:23, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
To clarify: this isn't unique to the Kent Hovind article, that's just an example. Blue (is useful) 05:38, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
You need an updated family file, look at the bottom of Help:Bots. It's no longer /wiki/api.php, it's /w/api.php, though there should be a redirect for that. -- Nx / talk 06:01, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
Ah, thanks very much! Blue (is useful) 06:20, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
When I try it manually in my browser, the redirect works... -- Nx / talk 07:09, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Rollback in RC[edit]

Is there a way to turn off the 'rollback' links in RC? Maybe it's just me, but they're an accident waiting to happen. --Ψ GremlinSermā! 19:59, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes -- Nx / talk 20:03, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! So I just create my own vector.css and copy/paste? --Ψ Gremlin話しなさい 20:07, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
If you're using vector, yes. It should work in monobook too. -- Nx / talk 20:08, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
ooh, it's getting complicated now :) Hopefully I can do it without borking Human's wiki. Tx for the help! --Ψ GremlinPrata! 20:12, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Did you change the skin back to the old one in your preferences? -- Nx / talk 20:15, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
I have now, but it seems as if it's still appearing in RC. Clearly I'm doing something wrong. --Ψ GremlinSermā! 20:41, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
You have to shift-reload in firefox, or ctrl-reload in chrome, to clear the cache. -- Nx / talk 07:10, 16 November 2010 (UTC)


Hate to bother you, but Armondikov vandal binned nearly everyone and promoted them to editor before you got there. Could you parole me? TyrannisAn iron, yet caring fist 19:09, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Grudge block[edit]

Get over it. Those edits were piss poor, unlike the other anon using that IP's. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:52, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

No, they were not piss poor, but in any case, the quality of bon's edits does not justify your behavior -- Nx / talk 06:04, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Actually, all the edits from this IP are one person. Just saying. (talk) 05:53, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
How can you be sure? ħumanUser talk:Human 05:55, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
So, Nx, what got stuck up your ass that you have to get involved - to the point of blocking and being rudely insulting - in a discussion between two other people, in a way that is not even in the slightest working towards conciliation? ħumanUser talk:Human 05:58, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Your abusive behavior towards a bon, and the fact that MYOB is not something I want to see here. -- Nx / talk 06:04, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Wait, Human, are you actually questioning whether I know whether or not I made all the edits on my user contributions list? Geez, it's not like I'm on psilocybin right now. (talk) 06:05, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
It's a snarky way of saying "why should I believe you?" Human's humeur is sometimes difficult to understand for us mere mortals -- Nx / talk 06:10, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
An excess of yellow bile, no doubt. (talk) 06:11, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
