It was nice and quiet here, you've disturbed it -- RandomTime 15:34, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
As per my UnAnswers talk page: Moo! --TalkpageEl_Nazgir 16:22, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Job queue graph

Could you please copy the "Embed code for graph:" for your Job queue graph to MediaWiki:job queue graph? That would let us embed the graph on wiki pages, like this: <verbatim>job queue graph</verbatim>

Thanks, --◄mendel► 07:16, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

Didn't seem to work -- RandomTime 09:12, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
You only copied the code to embed the Numbr, not the graph. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 12:27, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
I fail -- RandomTime 12:32, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, the both of you! --◄mendel► 21:35, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

Clean up after yourself :P

You forgot to check WhatLinksHere when you deleted File:Lightbringertitle.jpg. You should do a bot run to update them to File:Lightbringer.jpg. (I can't run AWB at work due to firewall.) —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:44, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks - have ran the bot, Wikia still hasn't sorted the AWB problems, and this database dump is old. -- RandomTime 17:29, August 31, 2010 (UTC)
You can copy the list from the WLH page to a text editor, find/replace to remove the '(image link) (← links)' stuff, then paste it directly into AWB's list panel. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 17:41, August 31, 2010 (UTC)
I can, but the links on WLH don't have the image on them in these cases, as I've already delinked them -- RandomTime 17:47, August 31, 2010 (UTC)
Ah, I see. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:27, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

#sub:

i and time. --◄mendel► 11:35, September 7, 2010 (UTC)

I can't see how this would be useful -- RandomTime 13:45, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
I don't know what you wanted to do with your substring template anyway, but it was a good excuse to mess around. :) --◄mendel► 18:33, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
Heh, I was attempting to see (by example) if there was any way to get a template to subst: itself. As I thought, it was impossible -- RandomTime 18:42, September 7, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for hiding the revisions. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 18:08, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

No worries, it's your userspace -- RandomTime 22:22, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

Wikia's image fail

Deleting and reuploading won't work, I've tried it before. Wikia keeps the thumbnails around even after an image is deleted, and if they persisted before, they'll continue to persist when you upload a "brand-new" image. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 20:30, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

centre looks neater IMO. A lot of the right content space isn't being used

Centered looks fine, but of course, there won't be that much room for right content space after 3 November ;-)  —Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 22:04, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

You forget that this content gets moved (if we can). But generally, yes, that table looks fine in Oasis. --◄mendel► 23:31, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you!

As AFK User_talk:Felix_Omni#Much_wub. pointed out, nobody has thanked you yet for all your trouble and time. As I support the move, I would like the thank you. Thank you!one1 Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:56, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Aww, shucks - I don't think i've spent as much time as the others on it, though -- RandomTime 17:05, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

"Ishy: Get on IRC (please?)"

Sorry, IRC is blocked at my workplace. I'll be home in about 30 minutes or so. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 21:38, October 14, 2010 (UTC)

See you then, then -- RandomTime 21:40, October 14, 2010 (UTC)

Eeerrrrh, I have to admid something; I saw your birthday on the @Wikia. I am really ashamed, but since the watchlist birthday template doesn't work (for me) I had to go over there, and take a peek.

But, none of that matters, cause IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!11!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!111 Also, you happy now? I coulnd't make the headline any longer.... Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 07:55, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

I think the template is broken because the string functions are limited here; that's being fixed, hopefully, because it breaks other things as well. --◄mendel► 15:15, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

To the person who post above me, I would like to note the following: (That is assuming, that you would eventually check this, in which case it is highly doubtful because this is not in fact your userpage, so in which case you never see this, feel free to ignore it, however if you do see this, following message is for you, Arnout, and for your eyes only, that's right Randomtime, do not read this section, it's for Arnout, not you.), oh wait, also happy birthday.

See header.--Łô√ë Ho ho ho!îğá†ħŕášħ 08:10, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Giga, how'd you do that? I coulnd cramp any more letters in the header? I'm using Chrome. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 09:03, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
I'm on firefox and I use a proper edit window.--Łô√ë Ho ho ho!îğá†ħŕášħ 09:26, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
Don't use the "new section" form. Just edit the page normally and type your own header. (Notice that Giga's edit didn't produce a "New section: /* bla bla */" edit summary - it used your header because he edited that section.) —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 14:14, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
Protip: use "new section", ignore the header input box, and make your own header anyway (as in a normal edit window). Also, happy birthday². --◄mendel► 15:14, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations!

You have won an honorable mention in the Create-A-Card contest!--Łô√ë Ho ho ho!îğá†ħŕášħ 09:26, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

I almost blocked you...

But that was because I misklicked when trying to go to your talkpage to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! (I'm just re-using this header from UA to impress Arnaut and F1 :P ) --El Nazgir 12:32, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

try spelling my name right, El Nazgir. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:50, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
:P - thanks for the 3 different birthday messages in 3 different places. -- RandomTime 18:27, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
Happy birdday :> --Vipermagi 18:34, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
Happy happy birthday! From me to you! Happy happy birthday! On irc too! Ariyen 18:44, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
Ditto :D -- Isk8.png Isk8 (T/C) 18:59, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

User talk:Scythe

Out of curiosity, if I had asked you four days ago to kindly revert yourself on this edit, would you have done it? --◄mendel► 15:26, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

If you were in the dicussion when that had heppened, then I think it would have turned out differently - and so I doubt I'd have done it. If you'd had asked me after the fact, and presented your points, then I'd have also reverted -- RandomTime 21:07, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for your prompt and straightforward reply. For clarification, I take "I doubt I'd have done it" to mean that you would not have made your edit in the first place? --◄mendel► 22:27, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

CSS

It still wasn't working because you had the open-comment tag backwards as well. /* Asterisks go inside the slashes, like this. */ —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 13:52, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Wow, really? I suck. (I've got it working in my personal CSS now, but thanks for the tip) -- RandomTime 16:23, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

VSTF

Well? --◄mendel► 22:37, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

What does that mean? Felix Omni Signature.png 23:32, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
It means Randomtime is an unpaid minion of Wikia now. --◄mendel► 00:13, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
What? Heresy! Where? --TalkpageEl_Nazgir 00:29, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
What the hell why Felix Omni Signature.png 00:58, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
To be fair, anyone contributing here is an unpaid minion of Curse and everyone contributing at GW@W are also unpaid minions. Curse, at least in theory, has offered to compensate the wiki by allowinh it to be hosted without unduly imposing requirements. Wikia, in contrast (as I have noted many times) no longer offers free hosting for wikis.
And, to be fair, if folks are going to contribute at all, it's good that they have ppls like RT volunteering to protect their efforts (as part of the Volunteer Spam & Tardiness Patrol). That an undeserving, ham-fisted, Dilbertesque, corporate ycch like Wikia benefits is, alas, an unfortunate side-effect.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 01:54, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
