Top level category

Hi, Adailton,

First, thanks a lot for all the maintenance work you have been doing; it's good stuff.

You are correct in observing that the Category:MainIndex will remain un-categorized, but such is the fate of the topmost category! It's the same on Wikipedia, where Category:Contents belongs to no category.

The idea here is to prevent category-linkage loops, to avoid confusing the bots. These would normally process categories recursively. If you've done any recursive programming, you can see how a closed loop could lead to infinite recursion.

Please keep up the good work! --TJ (Talk | Contribs) 14:38, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
fyi - (list of categories) (edit window bottom displayed, probably in the .CSS heirarchy somewhere) isn't connected to that above link: Category:MainIndex, for some reason. Search engine foibles are a funky thing in mediawiki. Good Luck and thanks for the Welcome! //FrankB 18:09, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Template HowTos

If you edit Documentation/How_Tos you will see that most of the HowTo entries are gathered automatically by the <DPL> feature, which lists all the pages in a category. However, the Templates HowTos are not automated, and they should be. This means going to each entry, changing the category from doc/howto to doc/howto/templates, then creating that category (and categorizing it in doc/howto). Then add the automatic stuff to use the new category. There are some (at least one) pages in Category:Templates that should be included, too.

If any of this sounds like something you'd like to do, please do. Otherwise, I'll plod along at it. --TJ (Talk | Contribs) 21:30, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy is passing by my location. I may lose power or internet access. Please watch for spammers in the meantime. --TJ (Talk | Contribs) 09:54, 26 October 2012 (UTC)


You are now a sysop. Please delete these idiots. --TJ (Talk | Contribs) 11:25, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Good work! We're catching up with them. Thanks for your efforts; please keep it up. --TJ (Talk | Contribs) 13:53, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
Well done, partner! With two or three of us, it doesn't take long, does it? --TJ (Talk) 22:56, 18 November 2012 (UTC)


Thanks for cleaning up those OldES redlinks. Keith (User:KNMcKenna) may be creating some redlinks in his work on the FAQs. They should go away when he's finished. I didn't want you to worry about them. --TJ (Talk) 13:19, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Icons and simbols

Hi Adailton, Maybe rename Category:Icons_and_simbols --> Category:Icons_and_symbols ? --Helen (talk) 16:26, 11 February 2013 (UTC)


Hi Adailton, I created two new subcategories in Category:Images: Category:Logo and Design‎ and Category:Splash Screens‎. Please look --Helen (talk) 04:27, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

I created Category:ODP --Helen (talk) 06:22, 13 February 2013 (UTC) and Category:Screenshots and Dialogs --Helen (talk) 03:33, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

You may want to steal some ideas

Hi again, Seeing your talk, I just thought I'd share a couple of links

  1. []

Both Wikimedia Foundation's projects have an extensive category system worked out, albeit with a little bit of differences such as where the category trees start, the second is the media repository site for all the Mediawiki Foundation wiki projects--including even image namespace archives for most of the many images used in all language Wikipedia's world wide, the first has some how-to Wikipedia namespace (i.e. special Editor Help namespace) and the special page of course.

  1. If you follow the Category trees, you'll see many categories are listed in multiple categories as you descend from the root categories. (I didn't see that on the few links above I sampled) Structured that way, a user can use the categories to efficiently locate related 'articles' or 'media' resources.

Good luck! //FrankB 18:23, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Double redirects

Hi Adailton

> The page [User talk:Mirek2] is listed in Special:DoubleRedirects.

> It was started on [Iced Coffee] title and moved to [Proposal by Miroslav Mazel], and now for [User talk:Mirek2]. But there are contributions from other users,

> so I think this should be the main-domain, which was created. What do you think?

This page is a part of the old Renaissance project. Mirek2 is main contributor and he wished to delete this page via the moving to [User talk:Mirek2] (he wrote "I'd like to remove the whole page. This is the simplest way I can think of.", please look at history). I think we should :

  1. delete [Iced Coffee] (no content, no links, no value)
  2. rename back [User talk:Mirek2] -> [Proposal by Miroslav Mazel] because this page has other contributors. (rename again or undo the editing ?)
  3. add the delete template {{delete}} to [Proposal by Miroslav Mazel] because the main contributor wished to delete this page.

Then we are waiting some time (2-3 months) and if other contributors will not protest against deleting of this page we'll delete it. --Helen (talk) 17:23, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Adailton, thank you for your work! --Helen (talk) 04:04, 17 September 2013 (UTC)



it seems that wfs000.png. is a duplicatie of wfs1000.png but it ism't

Beyond the word Students in wfs000.png is a thin blue line that shouldn't be there. I tried to fix that with a new screenshot but failed.

That is why I entered wfs1000.png.

I have no problem with totally deleting wfs000.png. I won't be using it anymore. Problem is I can't delete it, otherwise I already would have :)

Thanks for noticing though,

Greetings, DiGro

A massive spam attack

Hello Adailton,

Big thank you for your hard work for deleting and blocking of spammer accounts!

The wiki configuration was changed so that only sysops can create new accounts now (thanks to Jan Iversen).

more about spam

Hi Adailton,

My reply for User_talk:Helen_russian#more_about_spam

I think external links are not a big problem for this Wiki. Please take a look at source code of any wiki page with an external link. You'll see almost all external links contain "nofollow" attribute here. So I see no reason for very very hard work on the manually checking of old external links. --Helen (talk) 16:14, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
