Hey, regarding this edit, __TOC__ will not place the table of contents, it is used to move the table of contents (if the table exists; if the table doesn't exists, then __FORCETOC__ should be used). For example if I want the table of contents to be at the middle of the article, I can type __TOC__ right at the middle of the article. __FORCETOC__ is for placing the table of contents if the article doesn't have at least 4 headings and __TOC__ is for moving it. I hope this will clear the confusions.
Hiya, just wanted to ask a tiny little thing.
Commonly the term "silenced" has been coined for a surpressed weapon, however the technical term for it is "surpressed" by the Military and by Firearms Specialists. I've seen pages that uses the term "silenced" rather than "surpressed". Which do you think is more appropriate for the matter?
Yea I know what you mean, I would say personally that 'suppressed' is the most correct term as there are few times that a weapon could be considered 'truly silenced' although you could debate by hearing the action it is still not a silent weapon. Anyhow, the incorrect term is the most common in use so is quickly understood to the general audience that reads the wiki. Also, enthusiasts could debate all day how to pronounce 'cupola' [on a tank/armoured vehicle] but it could be seen as something that doesn't matter. Somewhat relevant, even the 'official term' for a small pistol, "derringer", is actually a misspelling of the last name of Henry Deringer. So even though I think it's a good idea my own standing could be defeated by, 'did the person understand what you meant?' and the answer is most people would probably say no.
But maybe it would be worth starting a discussion post to see what others think. For now I will log the pages with such mentions on my sandbox in that section.
Hey there! Welcome back and great edits you've been making! I've noticed you were a former administrator and I'm curious if you're interested in joining the current team? Feel free to reach out to me if you need anything and it's great to have you back!
Thanks well it's helped that I've started going over the episodes again and listening to commentary ;) Well it's funny I've been thinking this over, the problem is I can't guarantee how long I will be on the wiki for because I sometimes have these spurts of activity that trails off. I wouldn't mind having it attached to my profile again but it would likely make me an "inactive admin". However, there have been one or two instances recently where I could have caught something; like even when I don't edit I essentially 'patrol' the recent activity. Anyway, the summary is I would not say no but I would not be offended if you felt it would be redundant.
Cryptar, vote cheating is taking place on the "Thoughts About" blog post. I'm going to use a new format for the future, but this may mean that I do the blog posts next time. We can split it up, if you'd like. I really like your format for the press releases. So you can do those, and I'll do the other(s). What do you think?
Hi Cryptar, if you want to do the blog post next week, I suggest you inform the others that you are going to do them, so that you don't get ninja'd. This can be done by a message, or having a template or something like that in your sandbox. It may happen that sometimes you are too busy to do some of your tasks, which is okay, but I believe it is the best to leave a notice so that somebody else can do that for you that week. (I'm not saying that for this week, I know you had connection problems.) Have a good day.
Yes I have a new set up to combat this issue so I should be able to get in earlier next time onwards. I still haven't seen the episode, even when the internet was working I could not find a usable source. Will try again.
Hello. I know you're quite busy at the moment, and I really don't want to pressure you. But since GamePlaya has left and I'm going on a vacation, you may have to watch over the wiki while you can. See my blog post for more information. Cheers, have a good day, when you wake up.
Thank you. The tour's program is pretty intense and I hardly find any opportunity to be online during daytime, but at the hotel I'm staying three nights I got free internet connection, so do expect me to be around here in the evenings.
So, I was wondering, what do you think about article comments that does not discuss how to improve the article? GP's policy was to delete them, but I saw that you did not. If you ask me I'd prefer to not keep them since they will likely create unproductive and unnecessary discussions that will distract users, and will also muck up Recent Activity.
Well I think I can see how they don't really add anything, if anything needs to be discussed on that rare occasion then we can just be messaged about it. By this point I say we should leave it how it is, with no article comments.
Well we can always turn them back on, but I really don't see any reason to. Very few productive messages have been left there and there are now attached talk pages anyway. Actively checking talk pages has never been neccissary in my experience. As I said before, if nothing else there is always personal messaging. However, like I say, these are my opinions. I just felt the majoritory did not want them enabled.
I see your point, and I agree Article Talk Pages and Message Walls are more convenient and will take less effort to moderate. Let's see how this works. If the majority wants them enabled, it's just one click away.
