[edit] Spam users

Please put all spam usernames/IPs here. Please do not create their userpage with the spam tag if it doesn't already exist. And please only add them if they have multiple edits -- most spam accounts are single use and never get touched again. --joannac 19:38, 21 November 2011 (EST)

[edit] To-do list

  • update All Graticules with any stray pages reletbot did this I assume?
  • Map NSW and Victoria
  • Tag images -- benjw's job!
  • Fix retro hashes done
  • Clear out Category:Tagged_for_deletion YAY!
  • Fix inconsistent Swedish grats (mainly around Stockholm) -- ekorren's job! and he did it months ago.
  • Tag expedition pages properly (Coords reached, Coords not reached, meetup on ..., meetup in ..., retro, failed, etc)
  • Check all the day pages are well-formed
  • Does File:Boatless.PNG have the error message we were seeing on the history page? Jiml 00:57, 9 July 2011 (EDT)
  • as per irc discussion: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgEmailConfirmToEdit --Crox 01:50, 13 October 2011 (EDT)

[edit] Embedded maps

I don't have IRC right now, but it seems the maps are broken again - eg. Berlin,_Germany does not show the Berlin graticule, and since it is >30W, it should always show some kind of geohash. The <30W templates also still show a blue square whenever the geohashes are not published yet. I know it's a code and a wiki thing, but maybe you can trigger whoever helped with the templates in the past. -- relet 08:21, 17 April 2012 (EDT) --

For the record, that was apparently caused by the template "dow" returning an empty string for 2012|04|16, as seen on User:Crox/Test. It was solved when Zigdon fixed the value returned for that day. --Crox 14:20, 17 April 2012 (EDT)

[edit] More admins?

Could I gently suggest asking if any of the well-regarded, trusted users would mind taking on admin privileges -- we've got over 50 items in the deletion category; it'd be nice to get that cleared out... I'm willing to volunteer, and have considerable experience being an admin at WP some years ago, but I don't know if I'm well known enough around here yet. JesseW 00:00, 17 May 2012 (EDT)

[edit] Edit page clarification

< Hijackal> joannac, please add the info that "by submitting, you agree that everything you post is GDFL" to the editing form <&joannac> Uh <&joannac> What's GDFL? < Hijackal> I think that does not become sufficiently clear by looking at the page right noe < Hijackal> http://wiki.xkcd.com/geohashing/Geo_Hashing:Copyrights < Hijackal> Says some things. Which should be _absolutely_ made clear to _anyone_ clicking save ;)

[edit] File:Drag-along2.png

Thanks Joanna, I don't know how I ended up uploading a duplicate. Anyway, I've cleaned up the remaining links to the duplicate. --Jevanyn 11:00, 29 August 2012 (EDT)

[edit] Problems registering

Hi! Sorry, I'm new here so I'm not sure this is the right way to do this kind of thing. Someone at the IRC said you were the one to contact :-) The problem: My brother is trying to sign up for geohashing but gets the error

Set $wgShowExceptionDetails = true; at the bottom of LocalSettings.php to show detailed debugging information.

when he requests the confirmation code. It seems it's some kind of internal error with the wiki?? Hope you can help! Thanks very much!! User:lizwiz 25 March 2012

Working on it. --joannac 18:27, 25 March 2012 (EDT)
Fixed. --joannac 08:17, 26 March 2012 (EDT)

[edit] Is it possible to change username?

I am currently changing my username across internet - is it possible to do it also here? Bulwersator (talk) 15:30, 21 July 2014 (EDT)

Sure, let me know what you want it to change to, and I can do it. I'll be using the Renameuser extension; just check its effects are okay with you. --joannac (talk) 18:37, 21 July 2014 (EDT)
I would like to change it to mkoniecz. Bulwersator (talk) 17:33, 22 July 2014 (EDT)
