I've moved some old discussion to [[User talk:Tobin/Old (2005)]]

Tobin,
 
 
Please stop removing my personal attributions. If I wrote it, I want it to be identified as mine, so if someone has a problem they can talk to me about it.
 
 
I dont want to hide behind anonymity, especially for my views on stuff like "The Renaissence never happened".
 
 
I dont mind it being edited, or even amended, but for scholarship to work you have to be able to stand behind your work.
 
 
Make me upset about this, and I'll find that quote from St Jerome about proper attribution *grin*

Tobin,
 
 
On the page [[Humanists]] I have added a section about SCA personas being humanists.  It contains a bullet point beginning with the words " You can quote several Greek texts ...".  Down the bottom someone's added a comment "Specific names to drop could be ...".  Can you take that comment and do your HTML trick to make it a side-note to the bullet point above about greek texts?  I'd do it myself but now I can't remember where you explained how to do it and my HTML skills are fairly rough.
 
 
I want to make some more "Your SCA Persona is a ..." bits on various other pages too but I'll get this one right first.
 
 
Thanx,

===Hello from a Wikipedian===
 
Hi Tobin -- I noticed the article on [[Cunnan]] at Wikipedia, and dropped by to check it out. '''Very cool!''' I also noticed the authorship discussion. In case you aren't already aware of it, there are a lot of good resources at [http://meta.wikipedia.org Meta Wikipedia] and at [http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?WhyWikiWorks Meatball Wiki]. Good luck! [http://en2.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Bcorr Wikipedia:User:Bcorr] [[User:64.91.162.225|64.91.162.225]] 04:51, 25 Dec 2003 (EST)

Tobin, I have noticed that the [[List Keeper]] link redirects to [[List keeper]] which wants to redirect to [[Lists Officer]], but doesn't. Is this to be expected? -- [[User:Cian|Cian Gillebhrath]] 13:26, 17 Jun 2004 (EST)
 
ps. the Aethelmearc above still looks funky to me, but not correct.

Hi, I am a librarian at Central Michigan University and I added links to several of your pages dealing with national histories (see France and Germany).  I was amused by the comical history attempts on the prior pages and thought I would add a link to better the histories.  I was quite mystified to see these labelled as possible link spam.  :]
 
 
I was going to blog Cunnan at my information literacy blog (lorenzen.blogspot.com) pointing out how outsiders can improve flawed history sites but if you think I am spam...
 
 
I appreciate your link vigillance.  Could you let me know how you determine real link adds from spam?  (Note what you reply may be used on my blog.)
 
 
Thanks,
 
 
Best wishes,
 
 
Michael Lorenzen

Is one of the features you have turned off the suffix stuff for wikis like [[weapon]]s, so the suffix no longer looks like it is part of the linked word?

Twice today I have got error messages when trying to do admin stuff (delete a page [[helmets]] and block a user 209.91.155.113). However, the task seems to have succeeded in both cases. I lost the first message but the second one was:<br>

Hi, I just got this message from Thorgrimr, and thought it was more appropriate for you:
  
I have been trying to implement footnoting like wikipedia, by using the id attribute within a cite command (normal anchors don't work). The [[Template:Note]] page looks to be working fine, but looking at the html for the finished page (see either the sandbox or [[branle]]) instead of the variable getting transported I get ampersand hash 123 semi-colon (&#123;). Do you have any idea of what's causnig the trouble? [[User:Conrad Leviston|Conrad Leviston]] 09:11, 29 Jun 2005 (CDT)

:My jaw about hit the ground when I saw what version of the wiki you are running here, it's sorely outdated even for the 1.4 series. Might I suggest a significant upgrade (1.6.7 comes to mind) and installation of two extensions that will curb so much of your spamming traffic. The first extension is Spam Blacklist which allows you to list domains/urls that, when found in a article, prevent someone from saving the page. The second is called "Bad Bahavior" and it does many cool things, but one of the most important is to block a ton of proxy connection that are commonly used for spamming. I believe it also address spambots that can race through a wiki in no time. These are just so friendly suggestions from someone who doesn't visit Cunnan too often, but likes to see his images up on the front page, lol. Thorgrimr of Dragonsspine 22:27, 20 Jun 2006 (EST)

I've moved some old discussion to User talk:Tobin/Old (2005)


Hi back

Thanks. :) I've been in the SCA a good while, plus I'm opinionated, so a Wiki seemed like a good activity. Besides, I think what y'all have here is really great. Sabine

Also hi back! By the way, I just pointed our local mailing list at your site, as they were beginning to start a scrambled wiki of their own, and the wikipedia format just works so much better. So...expect an influx, as Carolingia houses a lot of knowledgable but...err...vocal people. ;-) -- Metahacker 11:22, 25 Oct 2004 (EST)

SIG invite?

You seem to be an admin. Do you think it would be okay if I invited the Slavic Interest Group onto here? One challenge is that I don't think that the SIG is limited to SCA people only. What's the cut-off policy between on-topic and off-topic here? The current page is http://slavic.freeservers.com/ and suffers from ads and lots of dead links. Tomislaus 07:15, 11 Aug 2005 (CDT)

Blocked User 210.....

This person has spammed Cunnan --User 144 13:29, 13 May 2006 (EST)before in the exact same way. It might be an idea to consider a longer ban than usual.

Thorgrimr's suggestion

Hi, I just got this message from Thorgrimr, and thought it was more appropriate for you:

A message for you from Lochac Masonry

Hi Tobin,

Apparently masonry@lochac.sca.org, the admin and assets side of the kingdom, wants to contact you but doesn't have Skype. Could you please tell them how else to contact you.
