Hello, Zhuyifei1999! — Welcome to WikiIndex :-)
WikiIndex aims to build bridges between wiki communities. We hope that you will enjoy browsing and editing this site.

Our goal is to make an index of all wiki sites. We appreciate your help in our quest.

Your contributions are greatly valued.

Hello

Welcome to WikiIndex, and thanks for your recent edits. I am trying to understand the reason for this edit. Was your discovery of this bug as a result of trying to create a new article using the Form:Wiki? Best regards, --Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmintalk2HH 06:39, 30 March 2013 (PDT)

In Form:Wiki source it says that we can type no to tell the Template:Wiki that there aren't any node in the wiki. But every time I used the form, it didn't accept no. I thought the type string would accept it, so I made the edit. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 18:10, 30 March 2013 (PDT)

Spam fighting / user name space

Hi - thanks for flagging up all them spam edits. If you see another flood like this, and don't see any sysops deleting it, message any of us which are online to deal with it.

And would you like to add something about yourself in your own name space - such as languages you speak or your timezone? Best regards, and thanks again :) Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmintalk2HH 08:14, 12 April 2013 (PDT)

You're welcome.--Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 08:36, 12 April 2013 (PDT)
Thank you for flagging spam. As someone who despises spam, your help is greatly appreciated. Arcane (talk) 20:09, 30 April 2013 (PDT)Arcane

Redirects

Hi again. Can you please refrain from creating hard redirects to non-WikiIndex articles? That means no redirects to other sites such as Wikimedia, Uncyclomedia or Wikia wikis, etc. Redirects should only be used for existing articles or categories here on WikiIndex. If there is a real need to link to offsite wikis, we specifically use the InterWiki table. Best regards, Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmintalk2HH 04:30, 14 April 2013 (PDT)

OK, I'll find where they are requested by, and fix them. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 04:53, 14 April 2013 (PDT)
Fixed. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 04:57, 14 April 2013 (PDT)

Logos

Hi - great work with your logo hunting. Can I please ask that you don't change an internal wikilink to an external url hotlink if the logos are identical - as you did with this edit here. Also, feel free to upload any new or updated logos if you are able to (I often hotlink when there is no existing logo because I'm too lazy sometimmes to upload! - but we really ought to upload every logo).

I'm also impressed with your overall knowledge of MediaWiki ... what other wikis are you involved with? Best regards, and keep up your great work :-))) Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmintalk2HH 10:43, 24 April 2013 (PDT)

First, the logos aren't identical (File:Wikipedia.png is dimmer and the Chinese character is 祖 not 维). See wp:History of Wikipedia#Evolution of logo. Second, I'm also involved in LifeWiki (active about a month ago), Powder Toy Wiki (maybe no edit), WikiApiary (joined recently), MediaWiki.org (some edits) and some other Wikimedia Foundation wikis including Wikipedia (few edits). Also, I'm sometimes not able to upload because I'm using an iPad. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 03:03, 25 April 2013 (PDT)
Thanks for the link on the evolution of the Wikipedia logo. I now understand why you've been changing them. Maybe we can still keep the old logo by floating a thumbnail on the left side of the article - as per this template edit. Best Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmintalk2HH 13:02, 1 May 2013 (PDT)

Appreciate your effort here!

Many thanks! Do you have a first name to go by, i.e. Hoof Hearted is Sean? I am a big advocate of Real Names but not forcing them, just asking :-) Best, MarkDilley

OK. --YiFei | talk 00:18, 30 April 2013 (PDT)
Me with a booming smile :-D ~~ MarkDilley

Template:WikiStatus

Are you able to add some Chinese translation to the new Archive section of the Template:WikiStatus please? :)) Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmintalk2HH 11:54, 30 April 2013 (PDT)

OK. --YiFei | talk 17:51, 30 April 2013 (PDT)

Subst vs transcluded templates

Hi YiFei, couple of points. 1) we are no where any size that Wikipedia is and so from a technological and spam point of view, I don't think it is an issue there. 2) My main point is to have the wiki look as clean as it can, and yes, that is especially at an editing the page level. I think that date stamps and all the other colors, formatting in signatures is problematic - to me it is noise and adds no value to the wiki. Yes you are talking to a pre-Wikipedia person :-) So, I was playing with the idea of moving all the "stuff" into signatures to clean up the wiki. Best, MarkDilley

Hi. What if the templates like Template:HoofHearted is spammed? Is there any way to protect is so that only Sean could edit it? --YiFei | talk 18:00, 4 May 2013 (PDT)

It could be protected just for sysops - consider this course of action. Doing the easiest next step. In this case, seeing if it becomes a spam target. My guess is that we won't have to worry about it. Also, I don't think the timestamp can be transcluded, which is a problem for some folks. I am ok with no action or shared action on this. :-) Best, MarkDilley

It can be substituted, but not transcluded. See Template:YiFei --YiFei | talk 05:39, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure why you are both trying to re-invent the wheel? The default MediaWiki signature generator is the most secure method of generating a signature - and it is how all other MediaWiki installations do it. And I'm also not sure why there is seemingly apparent denial of the very real spam problem from Mark! Finally, I really don't get why Mark is trying to 'clean up the wiki' - signatures with timestamps is the way MediaWiki works - and that is exactly how the millions of existing MediaWiki users will be familiar with. Mark, if you really don't like how MediaWiki works, then maybe it is time to either shut down WikiIndex, or move it back to a more prehistoric wiki engine. A lot of effort is being wasted here .... maybe time for me to check-out - just like the many other valuable past contributors to this site! ://// Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmintalk2HH 03:42, 5 May 2013 (PDT)
