Double redirects

Yes double redirects stopping halfway is to be expected. Its done that way to stop redirects from going around in circles (since having the software check for duplicates in a, potentially, very long chain could make the server grind to a halt). You can find broken and double redirects using the Special:Maintenance tools. - Tobin 13:40, 17 Jun 2004 (EST)


My source for the minnesingers is a book in the main library called "The Minnesang". It is located at 830.1 in the U collection. 830.1 and 830.2 are good places to look for stuff on the Minnesingers, but you have to wade through a few German language books. My troubadour references are a little more diverse. Cheers Conrad Leviston 11:36, 29 Jul 2004 (EST)


Hiya! Sekanjabin is an unusual case because it would certainly classify as a cordial in period - a syrupy medicinal potion - but our modern usage is that of a beverage. I've made some good variations with spice and some fruit flavorings. I suspect any syrup in a well-sealed bottle would be great for field-expedient soft drinks at events. When I get time I'll do a bit on rosa solis which I researched for an A&S even last year.


Ah, yes. It appears I was in error when I wrote that. So very tired then. I'll fix that as soon as possible. Perhaps I should just edit the Middle page (that being my native land). So you (all of you, apparently) are in Lochac? How's the weather down there? Do you guys make the schlep to Pennsic or do you have your own sort of thing there?

Well, I majorly updated the Middle again (if it's too long, let me know). As far as I know, most people simply call it "The Middle". In official capacities, I suppose "Kingdom of the Midrealm" or "Kingdom of the Middle". Whichever the current ruler thinks sounds better. Let me know if there's any particular history information you want. I have time on my hands. WanderingSpy 20:36, 2 Sept 2004 (CST)

Round robin tournaments

Thank you for the link to your article. I have, however, one cavil, which is that, as quoted, your sysetm appear to guarantee that one of the people who fights last in each round fights first in the next. Accepting that, at some point, everyone does this, does this not, however, raise a fatigue issue ? --Simoncursitor 16:46, 20 Oct 2004 (EST)

  • My "system" is only a way of working out the draw. It is up to the competition secretary/Lists Officer to decide what order to arrange each round in. And yes, one of the things I commonly have to make sure is that the fighters have enough time between bouts to rest and recuperate (and drink more water!). In Australia, this is an issue for any tournament style, not just round robins. - Cian Gillebhrath

User status

You are now a bureaucratic. This is because you have been a helpful, trustworthy user. I advise you to go mad with power and take petty revenge on those you dislike. No one has done this yet, and I think it would be cool. Your new power as a bureaucrat allows you to raise new sysops. Feel free to call them minions. Conrad Leviston 09:00, 27 May 2005 (CDT) (Only two of these sentances are actually true).

  • This statement is a lie too :^) So does this mean I can put on my roleplaying hat and create an undead^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hsysop army, raising them from the kernel beneath me. BHWAHAHAHAHA!!!! Cough! Cough! Splutter! Splutter! And how do you go mad with power if your mind is already twisted? :^) - Cian Gillebhrath
    • Grovel Grovel !! All hail the mighty Cian the Bureaucratic. Long may he Do whatever Useful Things Bureaucrats Do. --Simoncursitor 04:44, 30 May 2005 (CDT)

update database errors

I've fixed the problem now. The database layout changed between the software version we were using and the current one. - Tobin 00:36, 13 Jun 2005 (CDT)

Small Grey Bear

There seem to be entries for this under Barony of ~ and Small Grey ~
Ought they, in some way, to be conflated ? --Simoncursitor 05:57, 6 Sep 2005 (CDT)

  • In my haste, I didn't notice that. I've redirected the samller page. - Cian Gillebhrath

Request for pedantry

As you are the most active pedant on the list (I only say that because I know you will take it as a complement), I was wondering if you could help me by casting an eye over the pages I have earmarked as future pages of the month on Cunnan:Page of the Month. Do any correcting that they need so that they are nice and tidy for when they appear on the main page. Oh, and don't hesitate to add to my list. At the moment the Page of the Month thing is a bit of a one man show, which is not how I intended it to be. Thanks. Conrad Leviston 04:57, 2 Nov 2005 (CST)

  • Will do when I have a better connection and more time. Presently on holidays. - Cian Gillebhrath
