The only thing I ask when you come to this page is that you assume good faith, which means "give the benefit of the doubt regarding a contributor's intentions when it is reasonable to do so." Thank you.

Edits to policy

I dunno.... it's a boring day at my "own" wiki and I was just reading the rules... seeing what other wikis do helps me with my own. Purple Scissor 01:38, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Discuss ban

Hi Nathan,

I saw that you banned/ blocked my user account at your bluwiki site. I realize now that it is against policy to blank a page and move it to a random name.

What i wanted to do is delete the pages I added, because I am becoming aware now that my pages contain too much personal information.

I want to kindly request to you, to unblock my user account. So that I can use the normal "delete" function of the contributions I did on bluwiki.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best regards,

Ralf Olieslagers

ps. Thanks for hosting bluwiki!

  • Not so much against policy, but it looks very suspicious. You have to admit, were you in my position, all these page moves would look fishy. Account unbanned. I'm not the one hosting BluWiki, Sam is. I only work here. —  Nathan (talk) 11:27, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Without external images


We are the users of http://dbnews.bluwiki.com . Since a few weeks ago we can't put external images on our pages and we don't see the format bar. Are something working on a unexpected fashion or external images are no longer supported?

When we upgraded the wiki, that was a feature that the MediaWiki developers removed (not us), probably because viruses can be embedded in images. You'll have to upload images now. —  Nathan (talk) 17:32, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Old member leaving.

So yes, the user User:CyKairus left our project, that's why he was blanking his pages. Yes he owned them, yes, they need to be deleted. I'm sticking the delete template on them. Cheers! AlishaShatogi 18:44, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Okay. Sounds good to me. Thanks for telling me. Nathan 19:14, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Lots of spam/vandalism

Hi Nathan,

I've been noticing a lot of vandalism lately, particularly on Sam's talk page. I've reverted it a few times already... so there's a heads up for you... Cheers. AlishaShatogi 01:27, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks but if I protected Sam's page - Sam is the boss around here (although we don't use that term) - protecting his talk page (even for anonymous IPs) would defeat the purpose of users being able to contact him. I know you mean well but that won't work in practice. Sorry. Nathan 05:40, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Math functions and conditional statements

I posted this on the User Help/Questions page, but it doesn't look like that page is frequented often anymore (since there's still an unanswered question from August), so I figured I might get my questions answered faster by posting here. :p So...

Is there anyway to do math w/ a template? For example, if I have a variable, is there a way to divide it by 10 using said template?

Also, is there a link that explains how to do if-then-else statements? I've looked all over the place.

No, I have the page watched. I'm not being e-mailed with changes so I can't tell if it's been updated or not unless I visit periodically. There's a glitch somewhere in BluWiki's code. That's got nothing to do with me, sorry.
Have you tried looking around at Wikipedia for help? Almost anything you can do there, you can do here too. I'm not sure on the answer but I'm sure they'd know. Sorry I can't help further. Nathan 21:29, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
I'll take a look at why watched pages aren't sending out emails on changes. --Sam Odio 21:35, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
Also, I'm not aware of any way to do math in a template. --Sam Odio 21:37, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
