From Cunnan

Ah the emptiness.

  • To the contrary, you have been filling in many blank spaces with good snippets of information. Thank you very much for your efforts.
    Please excuse me if I sometimes seem to jump in right away and "correct" your formatting/links etc (e.g. stopping a page linking to itself, editing links to plural nouns). I am merely being a wiki-Nutzi and trying to keep things consistant across Cunnan, something which goes against the whole idea of wikis being "free-flowing" and open-to-change, of course. <Shrugs> Where would the world be without perfectionists! - Cian Gillebhrath 20:59, 23 Jan 2006 (CST)
  • Hi again. Just noted one thing you might want to know. You have been really helpful fixing links to plural nouns, but you have been doing it the hard way! You don't need to type knights. Just shift the plural 's' outside the brackets like '''''knight'''''s. Of course, some like cities do require the whole link being included. And if a page like Norsemen keeps getting referred to, but you want it to always point to another page, e.g. viking, you can always set up the first page as a redirect that just contains #redirect '' ''viking - Cian Gillebhrath 18:20, 24 Jan 2006 (CST)

Why did you remove the link to buttercup (which doesn't yet exist) on buttercup (Askham)? - Cian Gillebhrath 19:19, 2 Feb 2006 (CST)


I notice that you have been helping undo the work of spammers and vandals on Cunnan. This is great but I suspect it is much easier for us Administrators to fix the large edits than you. All we have to do is press a rollback button to undo the rubbish. And we can ban the user for an while (as you can see Tobin has recently). By all means keep cleaning up the rubbish edits, but if at any time you are afraid you might miss something in your fix, fear not! We have the power! {cough cough splutter splutter} Given time, you too may become an Admin. ---- Cian

You are now an admin

A couple of months of fairly heavy editing and a bit of cleaning up after vandals has earned you the status of admin. Congratulations.

In practical terms this means that you can block vandals, protect pages, edit protected pages (which at the moment is only the front page) and a couple of other minor things.

Thanks for all your help on Cunnan, and hopefully your new admin status will make things a little easier for you. Conrad Leviston 18:50, 23 Mar 2006 (CST)

Spoke too soon!

Religion in the Renaissance has been repeatedly vandalized again, looks like by the same people. I've corrected it. Guilty parties: User:64.56.136.110, User:66.4.125.11 and User:208.182.75.11.

It's not that I mind, so much, it's just that the vandalism is really juvenile. Makes you wish for a higher form of vandal.

Categorizing

Huh. I'm showing more than 50 categorizing links as of 18:12 EST. Good work! Busy day? User:Paul Matisz 29 April 2006 - 18:13 EST

  • Wow... are you ever going to run out of pages to categorise :^) I guess you're not a librarian because you haven't given pages any dewey codes! Way to go.
One question. Are you planning to have pages in the super- and subcategories, e.g. places and countries (modern), or just the subcategory?? - Cian Gillebhrath 23:01, 28 May 2006 (EST)

Fencing

Hi, You seem to have moved the fencing page effectively back to the text that existed on Oct 25. I can't understand why? - Cian Gillebhrath 09:49, 27 October 2006 (EST)

Thanks

Sorry about being gone for so long... you know the old saying "life happens"? Well, a whole lot of life happened to me over the last six months or so.

The shield article is about as done as it's going to get, at least from my point of view -- obviously refinements can be ongoing. I've been considering working a paragraph about how various shields "handle", but that strikes me as a bit too subjective for the subject matter.
